Yeah, but Norse gods don’t exactly emotionally mature over time. Thor is probably basically 18.
Well, unfortunately quite a few state legislatures do. But, yes, I hope around here we’re all on board that romance between 16- and 18-year-olds falls within the normal range of teenage behaviour and shouldn’t be criminal (in Canada 16-year-olds have a 5-year close-in-age exemption).
Edit to correct: I don’t know how I phrased that so wildly wrongly. In Canada 16 is the age of consent and there is a 5-year close-in-age exemption if you are 14 or 15 (and under 14 is right out).
I think that’s unclear. I believe the ship was capable of building new robots, so EVE might have been built any time from pre-downfall to the last few years. But I agree there’s no reason to suspect EVE is brand-new, just highly polished.
