Okay, I'm rude. Is that your rationalization for other people doing bad things to me the way the word "arrogance" does for most?
That is a subtle joke, not actual evidence! It's an enormous leap from that sound effect to Active Fate.Aquillion wrote:Judging by the new page, it was Fate, since the beam made a "MANOS" sound effect when it fell
I've been thinking the same thing since we learned that Parson actually can cast spells. Parson is the strangest sort of caster that we've seen. Since Wanda popped we know that casters pop knowing just how to cast their type of spells, but Parson is a caster who never popped and therefore doesn't know any spells at all. It seems clear that he could learn spells just like any caster learns spells outside of his specialty, by using a caster as a teacher.name lips wrote:I think he's just a person. He can do anything he sets his mind to, anything he works hard enough at, tries to figure out, and practices.
Not everyone knows about Manos: The Hands of Fate. It's not really a popular movie. Unsubtle would be more like using "FATE" as the sound effect.drachefly wrote:Subtle? It was as subtle as the rant in Plan 9 from Outer Space.
No, the direct statement is "Manos," and you can take that to mean what you like, but don't mistake your interpretation for the actual words of the author. I wish we had a real direct statement about what Fate does or does not do.drachefly wrote:It's a direct statement from the author that _fate did this_.
What makes you say that? So Predictamancy just knows how things are going to work out and Dirtamancy just moves dirt around. Does that make Dirtamancy also terrible storytelling? To me Predictamancy seems more than important enough just for being able to do what we've seen, without having to imagine invisible hands of Fate doing stuff.drachefly wrote:If it was McFate - that was just how things were going to work out, nothing else to it - then all the buildup around predictamancy would be terrible storytelling.

This reminds me of the people who say Princess Celestia isn't a goddess.
