Just because I haven't shown her not questioning it doesn't mean she hasn't been. I can't show every character's every thought at all times-- in addition to the fact that I'm just not a good writer
I try to reveal things in a fun and exciting way, but occasionally it's just oddly paced and jarring. So there's that.
Why would she live with the X-men... Because Wanda is, at this point in her life, a ship without a rudder. After she was brainwashed, Wanda became the sort of character who NEEDS direction. She needs someone in her life to give her orders, to tell her what to do. This is part of her brainwashing. She is uncomfortable making her own decisions. Her default is, or course, to listen to her father. Given his absence, she will next turn to her brother. Her brother has told her that they have to stay at the X-mansion, for several reasons I won't get into here because ZOMG COMIC PLOT
. Suffice to say she doesn't LIKE this, but she trusts Pietro (sort of
) and she does. What she's told.
As to the others wondering why she doesn't hate her father any more, that goes back, again, to the not being able to show everyone's thoughts- or even everyone's casual conversations!- on every topic. I admit, I have several scenes I've wanted to do that address this very point, but finding a way to put them in that's at least somewhat natural is easier said than done. I can assure you, though, it is a topic that has been woven into the plot for the future ^_~
Why hasn't Professor Xavier not sensed her mind tempering? Who says he hasn't? Xavier's a dick. And I love him for it, but let's not mince words here-- he's not above fucking around sneakily to get what he wants. Wanda kicking the brainwashing while living at his house is NOT in his best interests. He's got his own way of dealing with this, and it's much more of a surgeons scalpel than a construction worker's sledge hammer. Maybe you'd be worry about the brain washing wearing off, but clearly, he's got this shit well under control. All the pies. All the fingers.
As to Wanda wondering why they weren't left to starve (a point of clarification: They weren't starving. They were freezing. Food was never the issue, but for all points it's essentially the same), no, she doesn't understand their motives any further than "They're trying to convert us." That's why she thinks they've been invited, and really, she's not THAT far off the mark. She doesn't LIKE that Pietro is having them stay there, but until she's told otherwise, she'll stay put.
Your initial assumptions that the adults at the X-mansion care about her well being are broad and shallow. I'm sure Ororo genuinely cares, and Hank as well. Logan cares as much as he cares about anything (not much), and Xavier has his own motives that masquerade as caring but run much deeper and to his own best interests. You assume that her father DOESN'T care about her well being, which is just... wrong. On every front. You assume he knows that Mystique is gone. People (in comic and out) assumes Mystique IS gone. There are a lot of assumptions.
This makes me feel like I need to do a better job actually showing some of my under-the-surface plotting. I'm never really sure how much is TOO much to show. I want to keep enough tension and interest to keep it interesting to read, but... I don't want people's motives to appear unfounded.
I have much to consider >.9
