Hail, hail, the band’s all here!
They brought the band back together and are now on a mission from a goddess.
Oh. Oh, Jen, I’m in love. With you & your Goddess! Pleaseeeee…. Do that again! (Sorry Humphrey, but sometimes you have to break a few eggs to make a justice omelette).
Seriously, I’ve been wanting someone to smack some sense into Maga since the second chapter. Now if only she didn’t have to hurt Humphrey equally in order to smack Maga around, we’d be getting somewhere.
I think this is as close to fan service as Aaron’s ever come 🙂
Yes, I know that Maga’s got some legitimate grievances in there, but they’re difficult to focus on when the whole “Maga is an awful human being” gets in the way. Then again, looking at her eyes in panel 3, calling her human may be giving too much credit. 🙁
Yeah, Maga, how’s it feel not being the most powerful person in the party any more? Now will you start behaving like a civil human being instead of a bully? Or will Goddess Huang have to smack some more sense into you?
She may not have to hurt Humphrey equally any more — we don’t know if their link survived having all magic cut off while the force field was up.
I think they’re still linked. The designers of the spell that linked them foresaw that someone might try starving the link of magic as a way to get out of it, and they built in a defense against that.
I still think the fact that Maga and Humphrey are linked will turn out to be critically important. The whole magic=fate=magic thing pretty much guarantees that. For the moment, though, all I want is for Maga to grow up, stop blaming everyone else for her own mistakes and start treating Humphrey as a partner and not like a wart she found under a rock.
Well, that escalated quickly.
This…. does not feel good. 0_0
Ha, that’s right! She’s not just Agent Huang any more, she’s the avatar of a goddess, and she will damned well be treated like it! You go, girl!
I dunno, Rock, this feels great to me. If it takes the power of a goddess to get Maga to straighten up and fly right, so be it!
So now two of our party member are possessing other party members.
Benefits package of being an avatar: Excellent
Maga… you will learn to play well with others, or we will break your legs.
Not to mention the entire “Look lady (and I use the term loosely), it’s not all about YOU, okay?!”
As much as I think a lot of folks are quick to be hard on Maga, she went and literally asked for a divine smack down this time so she has nobody to blame but herself for whatever the irate priestess does next.
It’s true she has no one to blame but herself, but if she’s true to form she will likely blame them anyway, probably Humphrey especially. I’m *hoping* she will learn and grow as a character, but since I’ve been hoping that since Chapter two, I’m not holding my breath. 🙁
Hmm well if Maga is WRITTEN like that does she have a way to not behave like that?
Remember there’s two competing narratives, why assume you’re originated from Jen and Company? They’re part an espistolary, like Sorcery and Cecilia, and neither writer knows where it’s going. Then again might there be a third?
Going back to the archives, there is little bits of foreshadowing of Jen sort of driving the narrative. Nicely plotted out.
Side note, any hopes that this smack down finally result in Maga acting less like a spoiled brat?
Frankly, I have more sympathy for Maga than for all of Team Walking Disaster put together.
I’ve been rooting for (and admittedly shipping) Maga and Humph ever since she first appeared. Granted, he’s a sympathetic hero and I have a thing for strong willed crazy chicks, but I’ve always seen Maga as being honest and duty driven and constantly frustrated by her situation. This time she *actually* lost her temper, albeit for understandable reasons, and leaped before she thought about what she was about to land in.
Up until now she’s been remarkably self-restrained considering she’s a well trained professional stuck with a bunch of amatuers.
A well trained professional treats students professionally. They pay it forward because they cannot pay back the people who trained them. The way she harangues them and abuses them is NOT professional. Diva behavior only works for so long until someone with more pull calls ’em on it. Threatening one of the OTHER pawns of fate needed, meant it was only a question of which Power would smack her.
I don’t think Oz is possessing, it think the body was made for him.
