For two, it would be too easy on GK and lacks the disarray predicted. For three, it will result in Tremennis disbandment most likely, and while YAY, that's not happenin'. For fourth, Vanna won't be too happy about that, and I wonder in this case who her Duty/Loyalty goes to. She'll follow Jillian's order whether she likes it or not, that's Duty, if Duty is to Jillian. But seeing as how Vanna was more or less aquired as a mercenary paid for by Charlie, and ordered by her previous Queen to not aid Toolists ... it's iffy.
Agreed, I think if Wanda gives Jillian the go ahead to speak to Vanna then it will come back to bite her, because Jillian isn't going to just tell her to pop back to the magic kingdom - and that would be if Slately even let her leave (Barbarian Queen, I can't help but notice you ordering your caster away after your long chat with the enemy... do explain.).
Although I think Jillian and Charlie could potentially be willing to loose Jetstone if it means stopping GK. It wouldn't be indifference, but if they had a plan a bit like Haggar (let GK's weaken itself getting rid of Jetstone, then then come in and clean up the mess) they would do it. Kind of are they there to save Jetstone, or stop GK.
The second interpretation is more plausible. But you know I don't always go for plausible.
For dramatic reasons, Charlie will be fought against, directly. It's just too juicy of a battle to avoid if the story can help it. Also, there's the ideology issue. I don't think GK's Toolism, nor its Tool Fate thing, will go over well with Charlescomm.
I agree, I think in time GK and Charlescomm lock horns directly, I guess it just depends on what leads to it. Of course Wanda is fairly confident on the point, yet she still has a big, old loose canon in the form of Stanley. I wonder how Wanda would react if he wanted to go after Charlie sooner?

That does seem to be true. And so we have three individuals attuned to tools, and none of them seem to view the significance of attunement in quite the same way (and there is a big difference in views between Charlie and Stanley/Wanda).
And so my time with the Tardy Elves draws to a close, and I am let to ponder how the experience will... eh, I'll finish later. No need to rush.
