There is no difference between the two on Erfworld. See here all songs and all poems are magical.
Ah yes that's true. I suppose what I meant was "I wonder if it's for Wanda's benefit only, or if it's supposed to have some kind of effect on Jillian and/or the world as well.

There is also probably a difference between rhyme-o-mancer juice using grade songs, rhyme-o-mancer no-juice grade songs and normal unit grade songs as well.

Why I Love This Update

I love this update because Wanda's kill count on Jillian's boyfriends is now 2.

8 more and she gets a free soda!

Wait who was the other one? Ansom killed himself. (Opposing the Lord Hamstar is a highly effective way to die.)

Jillian and the Unipegitaur that Wanda shot down over GK had a little fling going. Rob hasn't posted that part of the story because he's not sure we're ready for it yet.

To be fair, it's not clear that she herself actually killed Bart. I guess maybe it's a "Reanimated Boyfriends" punch card rather than "Murdered Boyfriends."

Yeah, it's a reanimation count, not a kill count.

Still, that's mean

Jillian mighta had some scissor action with Hedda, too.

Has anyone started speculation on the number of lovers Jillian has acquired, or how any she'll have by the close of the story?

Btw, was there a popculture reference in the lyrics somewhere? I missed it.

I can't remember my lore, there's no way of telling if a Predictomancer is lying right? Because they'd have a huge amount of power over Wanda right now (tho I guess she'd argue, there's nothing they can do to change her fate, just maybe make it a little harder for her).

Anyway it was cool seeing how Wanda got into this state and where her Fatalism comes from. Can't wait to see how she begins to recover.

FIFY. This is the Internet, Pal, remember that.

By the way, Unipegataurs don't appear to speak. Can they be harvested for food? Cause a reference to that could definitely be written into this fanfic.

Jillian had cried herself briefly to sleep once, and then awakened without apparent need for air, water, food, or latrine.

...

The thought of being abandoned that way, to slowly croak from unmet needs, seemed particularly horrifying.


It's easy to see how one could croak from the unmet needs of hunger, thirst, and oxygen; could one croak from not meeting their "latrine" need? :oops:

Edit: Maybe it won't kill you, but it'll definitely drop your leadership bonus.

It is entirely possible that her Prediction didn't include the full picture, or alternatively, Wanda is going to turn back to the new FAQ in present day, and Marie saw that (thus not knowing FAQ would fall temporarily first)


Marie almost certainly has a hidden agenda of her own, and I doubt she was caught by surprise by anything involving Wanda.

Calm yourselves. Look carefully. It's by Pete Abrams, with an acknowledgement thanking Rob Balder for permission to use the format. Rob did not make these.

Sure there is, when have you ever seen a grave with map references carved on it? Oh sure she'd have to give his title, but considering the things Wanda already knows? Never mind that Haffaton has encountered the same group of units twice in a short period of time, during which the group was reinforced. Faq may already have been found.
