Pieced together from ancient legends by: Servant

The author writes:

Wanda is right. Eternal damnation doesn't quite work as a deterrent against wrong-doing, especially if said person you are trying to deter doesn't actually believe in it.

"Eternal damnation" isn't all that bad. After all, most people follow common sensical moral guidelines. It's not fair that a person who does not obey morality gets to continue operating without any negative consequence; there has to be some sort of punishment.

But it is also not fair that the punishment is forever. If I was in charge, I would have given Wanda 600 years of punishment, then let her go.

But I'm not in charge of Wanda's Fate. Oh well. Look like Wanda needs to construct a deus ex machina to get out of this mess.
