Parson Gotti: Y'know what I was going to do, Maggie?

What I almost did do?

Maggie: What, Lord?

Parson Gotti: I was going to order you to break the link, but protect Sizemore and Wanda.

Make you take all of the backlash, like you did to Misty, and Jack.

Maggie: I see.

Parson Gotti: I really wanted to.

Y'know? I thought you were a monster, for doing that to her.

Maggie: I am aware, Lord.

Maggie: And for what it may be worth, I am sorry.

Parson Gotti: Well, s'kind of a joke to apologize to me about it.

You're only like...

...maybe the third worst monster on this mountain right now.

Parson Gotti: I got another question.

About Thinkamancy.

Maggie: Yes, Lord?

Parson Gotti: You said the summoning spell was forcing me to play out all my options.

Maggie: Yes.

Parson Gotti: So how responsible am I? For this boop I caused?

What's "Ruthlessness?"

Does this control my mind? Or what.

Maggie: Lord, recall the Foolamancy veil I cast on your lackey.

That would not have worked on a gobwin.

It worked because Bogroll already resembled you in most important aspects.

Maggie: Thinkamancy works similarly, on the mind to which it is applied.

The changes it makes are remarkably small and subtle.

It cannot turn a dullard into a genius, or a mouse into a maniac.

Parson Gotti: Or a hamster into a pit bull...

Right, so if I thought of this. If I did this...

Maggie: Then some very great part of you wanted to.

The spell only nudged it forward.

Parson Gotti: Okay.

Thanks, Maggie.

Maggie: Thank you, Lord Parson.

You are a remarkable warrior.
