Why do I think that Wanda's inability to lead will become a major point in the comic. Plus I wonder how her new toys would react if they found out she actually betrayed her side not switched when it became convenient for her survival? All I will say about the art work is bow-chick-a-wow-wow.
We've already kind of been over this. Back in Text 20, Wanda angsted about how she'd strayed from Fate's path, and then demonstrated that she's been retaining some of the things that Parson's taught her. Specifically:
Wanda wrote:"The principal strategic objective here is escape," she began. Sylvia and Ossomer made faces, but Jack suddenly looked attentive, concentrating on her words. "Following that is preserving me, then preserving you, then the preservation of all our other units in the battlespace. We cannot move, and we may be attacked at any moment."
She looked each of them in the eye, a little afraid of what she was about to say. She cleared her throat again. "Let's hear some ideas."
And of course, the very next text update following that, we DID see some brilliance from Jack with his idea of "catching us as we fall"... which was then blown out of the sky with Parson's plan saying "No, you're wrong, the principal objective is still to WIN. Like this
The real problem isn't that Wanda doesn't know how to lead, it's that she doesn't know how to get there. She's becoming Stanley.
Stanley wrote:The odds don't matter. Strategy doesn't matter. Those are details. That's your job.
But we will win this battle, Lord Hamster.
Rule the world, gather all the 'Tools, either way, both Wanda and Stanley are absolutely certain
that Fate or the Titans are looking out for them and will work things out. They're so caught up in the big picture that they're losing sight of the details.
