First--The Magic Kingdom, Then We Make War End

SpockOckham was kind enough to point out where the title from Book 3 Page 239 came from. I looked it up on YouTube (The Leonard Cohen version, not the Jennifer Warnes one) and wow, was that song moving. I imagined it as the motivation for Marie and came up with this scene and song for how Marie is going to "take care" of Jillian.

 

“Why are you doing this to me Marie? We used to be on the same side! Why are you trying to destroy Faq?”

“Ouht av revenge.”

“Revenge? What did I ever do to you?”

“Noht by ya, buht to ya.”

“What?”

 

(Sung by Marie)

They sentenced you to twenty turns of madness

They sentenced you to hollowness within

I'm coming now, I'm coming to avenge you

First—The Magic Kingdom, then we make war end

I'm guided by Predictions of the future

I'm guided by my mem’ries of a friend

I'm guided by the deadliest of weapons

First—The Magic Kingdom, then we make war end

 

“Remembah Wanda? How she used ta be?”

(Sung by Wanda)

I'd really like to live beside you, Jillian

I loved your body and your spirit standing tall

But my Fate cannot be stopped by anybody

I told you, I told you, told you, Fate controls us all

(Sung by Marie)

Sister Betsy tried to take out fighting, but she left nothing else within

So we tried to heal your mind back up again

But we left you fit for nothing more than croaking

First—The Magic Kingdom, then we make war end

I don't like your mercenary business

And thinking of the deaths has hurt my friend

Charlie and the casters keep it going

First—The Magic Kingdom, then we make war end

(Sung by Wanda)

I'd really like to live beside you, Jillian

I loved your body and your spirit standing tall

But my Fate cannot be stopped by anybody

I told you, I told you, told you, Fate controls us all

(Sung by Marie)

I’m grateful now to Wanda for decryption

And I knew my thoughts for her were going to bend

But the future that was set is still unchanging

First—The Magic Kingdom, then we make war end

Ah remember me, I used to live for magic

How I would Predict and recommend

Well it's Judgement Day and everybody's guilty

First—The Magic Kingdom, then we make war end
