    Boy, Maggie looks pretty scared. Also Rob missed a word in one of the lines.

    I am wondering what else RVC, a master thinkamancer, is aware of while maintaining physical contact with Maggionette. Which is to say, how much is he learning beyond the doll itself, in terms of connections to Jed and Maggie and GK etc etc etc.

    To say nothing of the fact that now he has access to Maggie's string-- without physically touching Maggie herself. That seems fearsomely ominous to me.

    I wonder when RVC's signamancy is going to change into something more appropiate...

    And then there is the question of whether Jed is able to listen to Roger's comms with Bill-- and also just how "thinkamantically aware" of RVC Jed is. Can Jed perceive Roger's thoughts as Bunnie did with Delta? Inquiring minds want to know!

    Edit: Or is Jed's awareness dependent on Maggie touching the doll, such that if Maggie is not touching the doll, Jed is not aware of the doll and can't sense it or sense through it.

    Time for some re-reading of the first Jed-Maggie touchpoint...

    Wow, more guile than I expected from Roger here. I'm glad Jed tried to help, even if things are too complicated for Parson to fully trust anyone here (other than Maggie, that is). Also glad that Parson's instincts remain sharp enough to not tell Roger anything more about Maggionette.

    Interesting (and a bit of a letdown) that Big Think 8.1 just blocked Roger's call. Although it is possible that Roger only pretended to call since he's trying to screw GK right now. Maggie would have no way of knowing without juice.

    This is a little confusing. Wasn't Parson already told much earlier that Bonnie had given all her Charlescomm info to the Minds? Yet he's acting like it's new information here.

    Can Caesar disband Bill from where he is if needed? Also, if Jed is linked to the Maggionette, is Jed listening in, and if so, can he interfere in any way?

    Holee-o-flip! Roger is one treacherous bastage.... and Maggie looks like she knows shes about a hair's breadth away from being made bad, if not outright croaked.

    Indeed, and well conceived. And it sure seems to me that Roger dodger is maneuvering his mark to keep him from initiating any actual thinkagrams. His offer to engage Bonnie seems to me like a ploy designed to generate artificial comfort in Parson so that Parson does not ask RVC to call Bonnie. Which is exactly what happened...

    Well, I have to agree, Roger is smart.
    And that's the problem. He knows they need him, that makes him relatively safe there.

    Nice to see Caesar backing Hamster choices right away now~ money can buy trust for sure!

    Now the problem is... how can Bill boop this up?

    What's more likely. That they missed one word, or three? XD
    Parson doesnt know if Jed is right or wrong, wouldn't assume wrong immediatly.
    Besides yes, the 'if' there makes that whole part make sense again~

    Fun/Wild theory time:

    It would be interesting/fascinating to see if, through some sort of mad link-up, Vanna/Roger/Bill could use the maggionette's connection to :jed: to turn him-- and therefore the entire city of Spacerock-- to a new side (presumably under one of them as a Ruler). It would definitely give them the steam and staying power to remain as an antagonistic faction throughout the story, but I'm not sure how on-the-table that sort of thing really is. Still, it wouldn't be game over for GK (the side), since their whole treasury is here; it wouldn't be as bad as what Jillian let happen to her.

    Definitely would be interesting to see Book 3 revealing the true vulnerability of sides like that. Charlescomm being so dependent on Shockmancy, FAQ being taken by like 4 units (and everyone's favourite bat), GK (the city) finally falling/ hardly putting up a fight, ICFYS losing almost all of its units right after, Transylvito nearly being taken out in the night by the gunmen ploy, and then the possibility of this.... Incredibly unlikely to happen, but that'd be some radical theming for sure.

    Also I think the fact that Roger is a crap lookamancer is going to end up being his downfall. Not sure how, but it's going to bite him in the boop.
