So, Faq is growing nicely, with Jillian playing double puppet to Transylvito and Charlie. Well, she was always good at taking orders and less fit as Queen anyways.
Calling Jillian a puppet is both unfair, and inaccurate. A puppet MUST obey the puppet master. Jillian has both the right and ability, already exercised, to refuse. Ergo, she is puppet to no-one. Don and Charley are benefactors not puppet masters. The relationship is based on reciprocation not subjugation.
ADDED: does nobody post here before even reading the update?! What kind of forum is this, people?!
I like this forum
I'm a bit disappointed, though; for a second I thought Jillian had
actually worked out how to be a Queen, but then it turns out to be Charlie's idea. Ah well...I do wonder how things will go for her and Faq, being stuck working for two sides that distrust each other at best? And having a lover on one side, no less! Fun times.
A good leader is not someone that knows all the answers already, but one that listens to advice. In fact, it's been said that the you can tell the quality of a ruler by the quality of the advisers the ruler consults. Don and Charley have much more experience leading a side competently, so listening to their advice is highly recommended for any newbie ruler. The thing about listening to advice, eventually Jillian won't even have to ask Don or Charley for advice anymore because she would have learned how they think. WWCD or WWDD, It's at that point where someone can ask themselves this type of question, about someone who's opinion they value, and answer it for themselves that they come unto their own. Jillian is not just blindly following orders. She's following advice and learning for herself why that advice is effective, so that later she can take the initiative and use these strategies as part of her own plans. The fact that Jillian takes this advice and doesn't just tell Don and Charley to bugger off speaks well for her future potential.

To me the comment Charlie made was not so much a statement of fact "Parson I hate your guts and I never want anything to do with you ever again!!!" as it was just a (mostly) friendly jab because Charlie was frustrated. I dont think every little thing that is said should nessicarily be taken completely litterally and at face value, especially when it's coming out of Charlie or Parson's mouth...
I agree. Heh, Charlie should have used a smiley to clear up this kind of confusion.
I NEVER put a smiley face after telling someone I hate them and I've never seen someone smile, or give a smiley face after this kind of statement. Context should clear up any confusion. When I tell someone I hate them because of something they do in game, it's a shallow, transient hate, that lasts until I get revenge or the game ends.
