I'm not going to do any more work on it until I finish reading through everything else, though.

Really old, but I just noticed while rereading and feel it should be addressed:

@ Mr Frog - very awesome story update... I liked your description of Joseph's place, and I'm curious - if Joseph (who I'm assuming went rogue from Parasol?) has cloning and memory alteration technology, wouldn't that make the original "version" of Mr Frog "expendable", so to speak?

Well, manufacturing a replica from nothing isn't cheap. If you're creating the matter from scratch out of energy, you'd need something like 3 quintillion joules of energy to make a single Mr Frog (assuming he weighs around 30-40 kg -- he's pretty small, whatever he is). You could admittedly get that energy by using up another source of mass (I'm guessing if they possess the tech to convert energy directly into matter, they could also do the reverse), but energy inefficiency means that you'd still need to put in quite a bit more energy than you're getting back in the form of Mr Frog biomass. They could probably pop out a few more Frogs if they really needed to, but mass-producing him is far beyond anyone's means.

Also, a problem with clones is that they're still people with their own agendas, which is magnified by someone as inscrutable as Mr Frog. Eris only cloned the one Mr Frog because they desperately needed to keep Ballpoint from finding out he'd gone over to them. Further Mr Frogs would simply add further uncertainties.

They way I picture the memory-thing working is by scrambling all of a person's memories up to a certain point in time. They're still there enough for the brain to reconstruct most of the memories from other data, but it's inaccessible otherwise. If you woke up in your bed immediately after being mind-wiped, you'd probably think you were just really groggy. An extensive mindwipe like what clone!Mr Frog had would probably have noticeable symptoms, though ("wait, why does my calendar say '21 Granite'?").

Hence my past statment, he may have holes in his memory he can't account for, leading to clone!Mr Frog being extra paranoid.

Hence, the V stories.

@Splint:

Unfortunately, I have now read some more of V's journal, and Mr Frog actively contacts Joseph during the events of V's journal, which could not possibly have happened had he been mindwiped :(

This is not the continuity error you are looking for.

I think this has become such a bungled clusterfuck canon wise I don't know if we should care anymore.

In Spearbreakers, all explanations are valid.

Splint was pleased with writing a story lately. He had a fine drink lately. He has been irritated by the sun lately. He madea satisfying aquisition lately. He stopped caring about continuity snarls recently. He has regained a small measure of sanity recently. He lost soldiers named after friends to tragedy recently. He suffered a savage mug-beating recently.
