    Buck really did stop Wanda from entering the portal in the end. Kinda.

    Ha! That's a clever way to fulfill the prophecy about "preventing Wanda from entering a portal".

    I really appreciate how much Rob continues to do despite the circumstances. I feel like Book 4 has been in a state of constant narrative chaos, with both protagonists and antagonists having little to no control. Wanda returning to Spacerock and retrieving the Arkenpliers would be a great start towards the comic feeling a little more normal.

    Wanda, my dear, though I spend my days in contemplation,
    Please, please set us free,
    Wanda, my love, don't forget me,
    Wanda, my dear;

    Hold your head up, you silly girl,
    Look what they've done!
    When you find yourself in the thick of it,
    Help yourself to a better point from which to plan to...
    Silly girl!

    Take a good look around you,
    Take a good look, you're bound to see,
    That you will be, were meant to be,
    Through this portal;
    Silly girl!

    Hold your hand up, you silly girl,
    Show what's been done!
    When I find myself in the thick of it,
    I'll jump myself to the cover lying all around you...
    Silly girl!

    Wanda, my dear, you will somehow be my true salvation,
    Please - what we foresee:
    Wanda, my love, Think what could be.
    Wanda, my dear...

    Cue Buck coming down the shaft to chase them. I really wish one of the dirtamancers was based on Roscoe P. Coltrane. I'd love to see a chase ensue with that earthen... erfen ramp used strategically to escape... Oh, the minecart needs to be used and the faint sound of Dixie accompanied the jump.

    It's ICFYS - GK has been shown with a green portal and Faq has previously been shown with a red portal. Also, Marie has stated Wanda is fated to come to ICFYS and the flower signamancy suggests a connection to Jillian.

    EDIT: Buck accidentally breaks the portal collar here: http://archives.erfworld.com/Book%203/300

    The shards are of a lost side and it is up to a croakamancer with arkenpliers to resurrect a lost side.

    ~ edit - maybe a lost side that once had poppies that gave dreams ...

    It's nice to see Wanda treating Fate so rationally for once. Isaac makes a good argument, she thinks about it, and then decides to come back later once she sees to things she's more certain Fate wants, like whatever Parson has planned and getting the Arkenpliers back.

    Also, it's interesting to see that Wanda seems to have better Fate sense than anyone we've encountered except maybe a Predictamancer.

    No, he doesn't. Joe does.

    Buck Nugget is the guy with the cowboy hat who's been giving Joe Spade orders. (Lowercase-o orders since they're all unsided Barbarians and none of them qualifies to give uppercase-O Orders.)

    That's why we were all scratching our heads in last page's thread about how Buck was supposed to stop Wanda personally when it's Joe who was actually in position to.

    I think Buck is the one whom Fate credits with being the one who stops her by virtue of the fact that he’s the one taking the lead in this joint endeavor, and the one Charlie coordinated with to negotiate and accomplish the creation of the scrolls of Bedrock penetration.

    Also, we know that this is the ICFYS Portal, because that’s where Phillip Roffercy led them, and they had sealed on the basis of it being the one where a Decrypted caster had escaped through.

    ALSO also, we are all agreed that the last paragraph is relating the appearance on the tracks of Joe Spade, and not a second member of the execution squad, right?

    So the text of this update actually takes place before the previous update, and the last image in this update takes place just after the previous update. As in, they find the shattered ICFYS portal, Wanda contemplates Fate, then tempts it by saying "Fate has to make my path clearer before I go down this path" (even with the "...perhaps with another threat..." line). Fate says "fine", and fetches Joe Dirt to apply the pressure.

    Back to the previous update's second image: Ivan announces that the fuzz are on the scene and suggests that they cheeze it.

    Back to the current update: BigThinkHandPuppet runs, Claud leaps in front of his mistress to protect her. Ivan is off-screen to the left, building an impromptu rampart.

    So Fate is pushing hard for Wanda to fulfill the prediction of turning to Jillian's court. BigThinkHandPuppet runs because he's reading the writing (or runes) on the walls and knows Wanda's probably now going through the shattered portal. And (hopefully) TweedleDirt and TweedleDoll will go with Wanda.

    This doesn't bode well for BTHP, does it? He's still scheduled to unravel at turn's end?

    EDIT: I very much approve of this loophole of Buck & Co. stopping Wanda from going through a "portal" by her going through pieces of a portal. I feel like this is going to be important in allowing the predictamancers to maintain their appearance of being "with the Magic Kingdom" when they're really working against it (or against what the majority of the MK thinks is for the best). With this they can continue to "advise" the dirtamancers, maybe even being included in important decisions.

    Also, both the writing and the art in this update are spectacular.

    Yeah, nah this is chronoloical.

    Ivan tells Wanda to book it, then Wanda doesn't. And Ivan's like "...aren't you going to book it?"

    I had initially assumed that by "Cover the ceiling" Ivan meant patch the hole in the roof.

    Hah, with the ruby colour of ICFYS's portal, I can just imagine Wanda having the urge to say: "There's no place like home", and jump on in.
