Hehe, let me clarify *my* intentions then.

First, it became clear to me that Arthur and I were *not* writing the 
same character.

Then -- although I apparently know less about Rob's plans for Vector than 
Arthur -- as I developed the (my) character, it became clear to me, from 
the hints I got about those plans, that they would probably clash with 
what I did as well.

I could have just left it all for Rob to sort it out.  But after Arthur 
started calling her Sublime in BM, I had this idea for a story with a 
confrontation between the two of them, and I thought it would be cool.

Prime, on the other hand...

The LNH, and yes, even Paraddox, Empress, and Sublime, believe her to be 
cured.  Ultimately, whether that's true, or that's never been the case 
and is a lie, or that has been the case once but was reverted -- it's up 
to Rob, since that's his character.

Meanwhile, until such time as Rob finds time to write, we have a story 
that more or less works, and even, if you tilt your head in the correct 
angle, vaguely resembles consistency.

Of course, since Arthur created the Sublime in BC/BM, he's free to 
dislike my origin story and retcon it away.  I did my best :-)
