"You helped make this mess, you can help clean it up."
Part of me is annoyed that the potential for "ticking clock" enchantments makes it less vague whether this was the better outcome, as I do like it when there's room for debate. This ultimately works better for the overall story in the long run, however, so i'm just gonna have to deal with that.
Besides, they didn't know that when they were pushing for the minimal changes, so there's still room for the "knowing what they knew, how sound was their logic" debate, SO THERE! HA!
