I'm not going to make any assumptions regarding whether or not a new side WILL or WILL NOT be formed. I will say that I don't think Parson can found a new side without a direct order because of the additional loyalty spells placed on him by the SPW spell, but there are others who probably could do that, depending on exactly what the rules for such are. I think that the end of this current battle in Spacerock WILL have some kind of permanent impact on the storyline. Just like the tone of Book 2 has been completely different from the theme and feel of Book 1, I expect that things will never be quite the same after this battle. But there's not really any telling at this point exactly how it will be different. I do think that we will continue to focus on Parson a lot; and that, as Wanda told him at the end of Book 1, he is a tool of Fate, and he will loose a great deal along his path. We COULD see Wanda found a new side, and discover that Parson's Loyalty is actually to HER as the caster of the SPW spell. I think it would require the stretching of some very creative plot twists due to her Fate loyalty to get the 'Tools all together on one side, but it could happen. If Wanda did create a splinter side, I would say she'll take Parson as her CW due to SPW spell, she might grab Marie from MK to help her follow Fate's path. I don' think she would take Maggie or Sizemore, mainly because Sizemore will be glad to not be chained to Parson's horrificly violent plans any longer, and Maggie needs to stay with GK to guide Stanly. Jack would probably go with her because he seems to enoy bantering her, and he's absolutely enthralled with the way parson's mind works. So; Wanda, Jack, Marie with Parson CW and Stanly with Sizemore, Maggie, and whatever they might pop or get to Turn to them from MK. The biggest flaw I see with this idea is a character problem more so than a storyline problem. Wanda prefers to be on the battlefield, I don't think that she would be content in an Overlady position running a side, sure Jillian is gonna try to be a battlefield Ruler, but that just doesn't seem to suit Wanda. We will see.
