, I tend to a gree to a point. Don't know why I hate Charlie, really, but the douchery might be as close to an articulate reason as any, and Parson is going down that path too.
Still, there's more to Parson than that, and plus he's earned it and Charlie deserves it.

No it's not only you.
But I kinda like Stanley.
On a completely unrelated note, let the speculations begin on how will the titanic mandate be falsified.
Know what would truly be a shocker? If Wanda died*.
Since we all know that is not going to happen like never-ever-in-a-bajillion-years, and Charlie getting his/her/its/? just returns is also unlikely, this leaves ... Stanley. But how? What sneak attack is lurking on GK, which is reasonably well defended as far as we can see?
(Of course, no one said that a Tool wielder would die on page 1 of Book 2 or anything, so lots of room for lots to happen, and theories to throw out).
*: arguably, Wanda is the most vulnerable Tool right now, being as she is on the front lines protected only by adamantium Fan- and Plot-Armour. (And a large host of Decrypted, and the fortifications of whatever city she's in, but I digress)
Still, my pet theory has Charlie attempt to make a trap for her, maybe in collaboration with Jillian. The whole Jillian/Wanda/Ansom triangle is a drama keg waiting to blow, and surely a thinkamancer like Charlie is thinking of ways to use that to his/her/?? advantage.
The whole point of this is lost if you keep it a secret.
