    Ohhhhhh, boop.

    All this talk on the forums about the cost of all those decrypted turning...

    Well, this is the Charlie we know and fear. The Charlie who thinks his way around the rules.

    So the image in the middle... I'm having trouble parsing it. Obviously its the charlie's decrypted, but who is the other side they're attacking. I think that's... ansom? next to wanda?

    Why do I get the feeling that tempting her with the flowers was a fatal mistake?

    Well, I called that one. If the characters in universe think Wanda might be willing to turn under certain circumstances, then it's a definite possibility. I mean, it's essentially the perfect pitch:

    Be on the same team as Jillian + Be on a competent side + probably immediately wipe out GK, claim the Arkenhammer, and have Jillian attune + hero buds

    To people who argued that Wanda wouldn't turn because she knew that Parson was fated to kill Charlie, Wanda literally just got a lesson from Marie that fate's willing to cheat a little.

    Yup, nope. He doesn't really get why she places that flower on her livery. He thinks he played his trump card, but he just sealed his fate. Or his Fate as the case may be.

    It's an illustration of a possible future that Charlie is showing Wanda. All of the decrypted in Charlescomm livery. The person next to Wanda (who is on the centaur) is Ansom in Charlescomm livery/signamancy. I don't know what side they're attacking.

    It might be naive but I really, really hope this happens. If for no other reason than we might get to see Parson vs. Wanda. Presuming GK survives the initial turn, that is. And Tramennis might reappear as well, perhaps now willing to work with GK and Parson against the bigger Charlie/Wanda threat.

    That was my guess too, but I think the whole image is more of a hypothetical thing than a real deal. Like Parson with the Tank a few pages back.

    Man, this update bums me out.

    On the bright side, maybe we'll actually see Parson do something brilliant to get out of this (developing) mess...

    Well that was awkward. So much for peoples hope she was going to do something epic.

    Oh Wanda...

    Please... Please let this be her playing for time. I mean, it makes sense she isn't over the buds given its always been on her livery, but man... I had hoped she could resist this.

    Yeah, hopefully it's playing for time. A straight "no" would get them all croaked.

    I rather liked it. Strong color combo, good use of Ansom as a CW for the side. Presumably they have the hammer stashed since Stanley even if turned would never cooperate.

    For extra laughs, the hypothetical enemies are wearing the face from "The Scream" by Edvard Munch.

    She still might. After all, there's a high chance he just stomped on her biggest rage landmine.

    Funny how the livery of the enemy side in the "possible future" is The Scream. Just about what we're all kinda doing now, and what everyone on Erf would be doing on a CC+Wanda Union.

    Overplayed his hand, triggered Wanda. Charlie's enumeration of emotions is also telling; fear / anguish / relief. No mention of anger or outrage; either it isn't there, or he so doesn't expect those that he couldn't recognize them.

    Interesting bit about the Contract there; Charlie's such a boop because he's OLD; he's been there, done that, got the T-Shirt. The devil knows more because he's old than because he's the devil.

    And regarding that... I'm just going to choke down the rage that apparently having the Archons torture Lillith en route to CC wasn't enough to trigger a single penalty, but apparently punching without the intent to croak was enough. :roll:

    Charlie is still damn good at persuasion, but I agree that offering Wanda the buds was probably a big mistake.

    Frack.

    In other news, I'm digging the statement that Charlie and Wanda are both looking for the 'Shoes. I suspect that Wanda just wants them to finish a Titanic goal of uniting the 'Tools. But it's been a pet theory of mine (maybe someone else already said it? probably did) of why Charlie wants the 'Shoes.

    Charlie is good at understanding extrauniverse info and complicated Signamancy.
    The Signamancy of the 'Shoes (and of Charlie's previous side) is that of The Wizard of Oz.
    In the Oz spinoff story Wicked,
    Spoiler: show
    a pair of gemstone slippers give a crippled young woman the power to walk.
    Said woman becomes a menace.


    I'm pretty sure Charlie would be interested.

    Interesting that Charlie's willing to let the Deal of a Lifetime go. Does he not care anymore about the Oz story getting out? Or does he know Parson already knows it and therefore the "worst case" has already happened?
