    So it wasn't Charlie pretending to be Maggie. Good that that wild guessing was nipped in the bud.

    It's interesting that Parson's greatest strength may not be his mind, but his heart. If Parson were ruthless and cold, it's unlikely Maggie would be so ready to give up so much.

    In the update with Parson and Maggie, she decided she would do whatever it took for Parson to destroy Charlie. That's the non-shipping interpretation. And she's now going through with that promise.

    Interesting to get a look into the Thinkomancer's power structure. Think alike or forget about a longterm academic career. No wonder they use Headmaster for title.

    So thinkamancers can lie to each other in direct mind-to-mind communication? that's very interesting.

    The next question will be, can PARSON lie to a thinkamancer? because once Maggie tells him about thinkamancer research theories, he has to decide whether to start Personal research projects, seperate from the great minds, to investigate the ramifications and possibilities, or whether he wants to reveal his knowledge to the Thinkamancers, and demand that they begin research projects under his direction.

    Maggie just paid all of her dues with Parson, by keeping the Great Minds from messing with his G-string.

    Though he always seemed more of a boxers guy to me.

    It's not that people are not recognizing the existence of such a possibility, but that they don't dare hope it will come about. Maggie is far too manipulative and betrayed Parson's trust too many times for him to bring her into his bed. Parson is no Samson. For him, it'd be like sleeping with a Mind Flayer, too much could go wrong.

    I'm more a fan of Parson and Artemis hooking up. That would be optimal in my mind.

    Pff, don't you know how shipping works? It doesn't matter if they're canon~!

    And to No-One, I'd love to write one, I just can't seem to find a way to slot one into Erfworld's rigid storyline-setting. >w< Besides, I more actively ship Jack/Jillian or Jack/Wanda myself. And this fandom is surprisingly inactive in the typical areas in any case, hence the lower number of shipping fics.

    "As a non-caster, he will only be concerned with specific capabilities."

    Are the Great Minds not aware Parson is a caster... or is Parson not a caster?

    I'd say they are wrong on both counts. He's a caster, and would be very interested in specific capabilities.

    Ah, another case of Hamster's "allies" deciding which information he needs or not. Hiding information from the guy who makes plans seems to be the trend in Erfworld :D Well, it's not like others have done it in the past and caused boop to hit the fan. Oh wait, that actually happened :P Well, I'm glad Maggie learned her lesson at least.

    On shipping Parson and Maggie... people can "belong" to others in non sexual way, eg a knight to their king, one brother to another, a child to their parent or reverse.

    At same time people can have "love" in a sexual way and yet not belong, eg Wanda and Jill, they may still go in different directions, keep secrets, be selfish, etc.

    ...

    On great thinkers, not hard to see this being conclusion... we already saw the vote before and reasons why... they perhaps correctly fear that Parson may end up similar or perhaps even worse threat then Charlie. If Parson kills Charlie then Parson likely captures the dish. What happens to them if Parson can attune to the dish? Of course not showing full trust can backfire, make Parson more likely to be a threat to them later.

    Does anyone feel like they are clear on what kind of a threat Charlie really poses to the Great Minds? In this update they seem primarily concerned with keeping metaphysical stuff from him. Complicated Thinkamancers stuff. Furthermore, as barbarian with no side WHAT kind of a threat is he really? Si what if he can fuck with the g-strings and frequencies and such. They arn't really in the game so to speak. Many of them hire out to sides for short contracts mostly if to sides at all. They want their secrets protected but I have yet to see compelling evidence of why they things they want to hide (G-strings being the only concrete example I can think of.) are so valuable/worth hiding. So what? Charlie isn't blabbing about it to everyone anyway. What the hell is worth all this effort to them? Am I missing something?

    I realize that Parson is the "hero," but heroes become who they are in significant part to their circumstance. The clue is given at the start of this update, that everyone needs particular activities to maintain their current behavioral trends, and this is highlighted in simpler people like Stanley.

    What happens when Parson discovers that he cannot leave, that Erfworld is an unsatisfying closed loop, and that he doesn't actually have allies who want to achieve survival, peace, or (objective unknown?) What if he discovers that Erf is just a bunch of people serving themselves? What happens when Parson discards the assumptions of the world he originally came from, or begins to realize that many moral rules exist only to ensure obedience from the weak?

    Everyone assumes that they are the main player. We only believe Parson deserves all information because we are choosing to view the story from his eyes. The Great Minds are also 'main players' and they also intend to use the resource (Parson) to serve their end. Charlie is also a 'main player' and he has acted continuously to ensure his survival, and the completion of his unknown goal.

    How offensive would you find the death of Parson, and Charlie as the new main character?

    I'm not sure if I'm understanding your wording correctly, but if I am, I think you interpreting the Stanley thing totally wrong. Maggie needs to give him "activities" so that he doesn't have time to think and make his own decisions without advice. It's not that she needs him to continue behaving as he has, it's that she needs to prevent him from being reckless.

    Personally, I've thought it was pretty much text since this update - http://www.erfworld.com/summer-update-2009-archive/?px=%2FE044_celebrenithil_MaggieParson.png - where Maggie practically told Parson that she was amenable to him dominating her into sex.
