Ditto. And to expand, to Wait for an AOA requires your Wait to effectively be an AOA. So if C attacked A, A could defend, and then just do an Attack. Or not defend, and then at a minimum, have shock penalties to deal. All assuming A's Wait has to trigger after C completes what they're doing.

As for back-to-back turns. I find this situational, but if I thought someone was trying to abuse this I would just have your turn starting trump any pending Wait you may have. Of course, the difficulty in abusing this is your Wait should be perceivable to the character, which prevents meta concepts like turns.
