    So Isaac really might have been leveling the playing field in Charlie's favor, not all Predictamancers are fatalistic like Marie, and the tower-turned-temple has a name which also doubles as an Airplane! joke.

    This is the best update in quite some time. :D

    I don't totally understand what happened with the Weirdomancer. Any ideas?

    Also, it seems Phillip intends for Buck to be baited into entering the tunnels, or perhaps even just Charlsecomm. Theories?


    (Edits for spelling. Several times. :oops: )

    Finally, I think it should be "access to 68 channels"

    So Charlie's tower is forcing him to focus on his business rather than pursuing Parson and GK. I have a feeling this is going to become normal for Charlie, he's going to have to learn to live without Gardening (If that's even possible, he may very well wind up croaking due to withdrawal). As well as making sure all his "chores" are done before he gets any free time.

    I have a feeling that the vast network that Charlie used to pride himself on is going to start acting a major anchor around his neck for the several turns while he tries to reorganize his side back to its normal efficiency.

    I think the temple bit is the really important fact we learned during this update, Jed is a temple as well by analogy and the title he uses for Stanely I think had some shaman/priest connotation.

    Maybe the tool users are some sot of high priest, rulers normal priests and the cities temples.

    Also lol at Charlie having to do his homework before he gets to play, though I am dissapointed at Aang for working with CC.

    Also lol at Joffrey surviving as a ruler in Erfworld.

    Feels like there were a lot of typos in this one. Missing words, maybe?

    Still very interesting.

    Surprised by the name. A google search of "Shirley" and "Peanuts" comes up with a short story called "One Ordinary Day, With Peanuts" by Shirley Jackson. Dunno if that's relevant or not.

    I see Joffrey, Aang, Princess Peach, General Zod, and Big Mama Otose from Gintama/Landlady from Kung Fu Hustle. Possibly a Romulan or Reman. Maybe even Storm from X-men, as a ruler. Or maybe she is Aunty Entity from Mad Max? Can someone else recognize the rest?

    I think the lady in the blue military uniform is Maria Ross from Fullmetal Alchemist.

    Also... Shirley Temple! As for CDS's observation, perhaps it's because she wasn't animated by her own side?

    Not sure which one you think is Zod. Doesn't Zod have a beard? Plus, Charlie already appeared as Zod in Thinkspace when he suggested that they kill the fat man.

    If Shirley Temple is capable of being this disruptive to a side against its ruler's wishes, Gobwin Knob is very fortunate that Jed has been as cooperative as he has been.

    Why did I miss the obvious joke?

    Well, the signamancy of that name is VERY interesting. Because Shirley Temple was who was originally considered to play the part of Dorothy, before the role went to Judy Garland. So, more fuel to the fire that Charlie is not from Erf.

    That's because stormlord didn't use the Oxford comma. General Zod, and Big Mama Otose from Gintama.

    General Zod is one of Superman's foes. But I don't see him among the pictured.

    For anyone outside the US (or inside who never lived near one of these), here's the title pun: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tower_Records

    I love the name Shirley Temple! No coincidence, I'm sure, that the eponymous drink is a decidedly sober one. I also like how she's changed the signamancy of Charlie's connection to the 'dish into safety gear (bike helmet and knee pads).

    Shirey Temple's wiki has this little gem.

    Quote:
    While at the dance school, she was spotted by Charles Lamont, who was a casting director for Educational Pictures. Temple hid behind the piano while she was in the studio. Lamont took a liking to the young actress and invited her to audition; he signed her to a contract in 1932. Educational Pictures was going to launch their Baby Burlesks, multiple short films satirizing recent film and political events using preschool children in every role.

    Oh my god, Charlie has a mom, this is such an awesome turn of events! :mrgreen:
    First it felt kinda bad that the tower which the Minds made into a temple is on Charlie's side after all and helped him out instead of letting him croak, but seeing her behave like his mom is so hilarious! Imagine what would've happened if Jed had been like this to Stanley! :mrgreen:
    Now I think I know what Isaac meant when he said that he didn't want to cheat Fate out of its victory, i.e. by letting Charlie croak without Parson doing it.

    Interesting that the Weirdomancer wanted some Jojo action for satisfaction. Onanistic indeed.

    Btw: This update is easily the size of 2 updates. :-)
