#.FROM THE HANDLER

((Does the in-game bee motif have more standing on Meredith, or is it something developed IC here over time?))
((Honestly? Crowley's pretty ambivalent on bees. She likes bugs in general, so she's not particularly bothered by the association. It's just probably not something she would have picked for herself if she'd had any kind of say in the matter.
So yeah, most of the bee motif is derived from canon content and, I suppose, other people's IC reactions to it. Crowley's tolerating it because she doesn't care enough to stop anyone from associating her with them.))

✍ + …how long they hold grudges?
✍ Handler Rambles
((Her grudge against Beaumont is at two and half years and counting.
Really though... It's complicated, I guess. She's generally pretty forgiving if you're willing to make the effort, and if you aren't, she has the maturity to acknowledge you can still be right about some things or still be worth defending in some instances.
She's not going to forget though.))

6. …being alone.
((Crowley doesn't handle being alone well. She spent about half her life with only her great-aunt as even semi-consistent company. Now that she's gotten out, that other people are an option she's allowed to have and the Buzzing are a constant presence, she can't go back to that isolation.
She's okay, usually, so long as the option is there. And being around groups of people can be overwhelming too if she doesn't have something to occupy herself with.
But sometimes the quiet catches on those rotted places isolation left in her, and the paranoia sets in that she's never going to be able to escape it. Compounded by other past experiences*... She has no people, as she's been told.))

5. …being complimented.
((It's a fast-track to getting Crowley flustered, heh!
She blushes easily in the first place and getting compliments on things, especially things she enjoys or worked hard at, is still fairly new ground for her. She's learning how to accept them graciously with feeling like she has to downplay herself though!
...But she still feels better repaying compliments with compliments when she can.))

((✍ 20!
✍ Handler Rambles
20. …what they think the meaning of life is.
((I wanna say Crowley has a 'more the journey than the destination' view on life. For her personally, she wants to be able to look at where she is and where she's come from and feel satisfied with the experiences she's had as much as where she's ended up.
Life is a process of ever learning and growing and changing, moving towards and refining and redefining the person you will become. And hopefully at the end of it all, that's someone you can be happy with.
Until then, there are millions of little things, of people and experiences and all sorts, that are worth embracing in the now. And it would be a terrible crime to miss out on them.))

No offense to people that find this a rewarding activity with their dog...but if your dog needs you to walk beside them to be convinced to pull weight in a weight pull your dog is likely not motivated, enjoying itself, nor showing breed appropriate drive (in pulling breeds) imo.

((I think I need a break.))
((I'm still hurting after everything that happened late last year. And I don't know why it's flaring up so bad now of all times, but everything just feels like so much right now and I'm tired.
It feels so stupid to get worked up over, but I can't handle feeling like it's only a matter of time before it happens again. Something I enjoy doing shouldn't be making me feel this anxious, heh... Weird how that happens.))

((Mrs.Franklin, her many cats, and her many ghosts - including her deceased husband - continue to get along. More renovations have been done to restore the mansion to its former glory. Quite literally. Besides the rooms that Mrs. Franklin uses most often in her day-to-day, most of the rooms have been lovingly furnished with the previous occupants' favorite belongings and decor. Everybody's generally pretty happy with each other.
(The grayscale views are what being dead looks like from Crowley's end - it's easier to interact with ghosts, but everything else gets blurry and muted. An odd feeling.)
Tumblr media
The sasquatch tribe in the glade southwest of the mansion is also doing well. They've been slowly recovering from the fog incident just as the island's human residents have. They've learned to make and use simple weapons in the time since, but remain largely pacifistic and reclusive. They have reached out to their human neighbors to pass along their understanding of wards and glyphwork though.
Tumblr media
Innsmouth Academy is still standing despite all efforts. It's still has only a few staff to only a handful of students, but they all do their best. The few minors whose dossiers ended up on Crowley's desk have been relocated here where she trusts them to the care of the resident witchdoctor.
Similar to other parts of the island, with the ambient magic subdued again, the faculty and students forming the literal foundation of the school have settled down again, as have the rogue familiars that went berserk on top of everything else.
Tumblr media
Familiars in the Secret World being a bit different than elsewhere perhaps...
About two dozen familiars handle the day-to-day maintenance of the Illuminati archive. Crowley got them sweaters to keep them warm in the winter. They seemed happier for it??))

((The bulk of the draug and deep one's invading force have long-since moved on by this point, in pursuit of Excalibur after it was stolen once more. A few straggler groups of mostly deep ones have settled on some of the more remote beaches where they've been living relatively peacefully and sticking to hunting fish and wild game. They're generally regarded about the same way you'd regard having a group of crocodiles or alligators living on your beaches and left alone. They move further out to sea during the winter months but can be found sunning themselves on the beach past the motel once the weather warms up. (It's less Hellish these days.)
Tumblr media
The wendigo population, meanwhile, has been slowly returning to normal - which is sure a thing to say you have in the first place. The combined overhunting of the wendigo, the ak'ab, the zombies, the draug, and the deep ones nearly decimated the native wildlife on the island. With only humans now capable of defending themselves left to hunt, the wendigo largely starved themselves out, turning to cannibalism and competing more directly with the ak'ab for survival. The two populations have, to some degree, brought each other under control.
The ak'ab also find themselves at the disadvantage that Maine is a far cry their native Central and South America. Without the extra ambient magic provided by the Red Sargasso Dreamer's fog and with the Blue Mountain Dreamer resealed and warded, they simply aren't thriving in the environment, being slower growing and overall less active than they were.
Tumblr media
While they still inhabit deeper areas of the islands forest - and the forests are unsafe because of them - their nests typically aren't the grand sprawling structures they were a few years ago. Most of the larger individuals, the royal/breeding caste and particularly old specimens, have retreated underground, leaving only the small forager and occasional larger sentries on hunters on the surface. Still dangerous, but the foragers at least are puntable.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
The quarry has been walled off and any zombies that didn't find a home elsewhere were relocated here. The red sargasso that the draug tried to establish dried up and blew away after the main force moved on. The area is generally avoided, but Crowley enjoys training here and in the neighboring factory where the high concentrations of magic tends to form natural golems and the steep cliff faces and machinery are fun to climb.
Tumblr media
Atlantic Island Park is still cursed. But not to the degree it was. A general malaise continues to hang over the area, and there are still the occasional reports of sightings and rides starting up in the dead of night, but nothing significant and never for very long. The Lover's Lake was dredged for bodies and the dozens of victims recovered have since been interred at the Kingsmouth cemetery.))

((Since it's been forever since we visited Solomon Island, I thought it might be nice to have a look at it.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
It's been cleaned up some since the in-game events. There are still zombies wandering about, but most have been safely contained in the cemeteries and newly marked mass graves dotting the island.
Crowley lives at the house where the blue circle is. It's a nice little old house by a cliff and the woods. She's added some garden beds and probably repainted it at some point.

Tumblr media
(I imagine it isn't marked on the map because it's an access point to the Illuminati archives on the island. Crowley technically works from home?)
The archives sprawl underground all the way to a second entry point under Innsmouth Academy, for sure, and I imagine they take up most of the southern corner of the map.
Across the street is the Overlook Motel which was once partially consumed by Hell.
Tumblr media
The Hell parts have since receded, but it remains burnt out and has since begun to collapse.
Tumblr media
Tumblr media
Most of the survivors stick to the town of Kingsmouth in the east or the Wabanaki trailer park in the west. Both are reasonably safe these days, as is the academy and main road that loops the island. Wendigo Way, for obvious reasons, is not.))

((I think, after everything that happened late last year, Crowley’s nowhere near ready to fully trust anyone’s insistence that she can rely on them. Almost certainly not someone younger than her with enough problems of their own to worry about.))

How do the bees affect Crowley physically, not during a battle but just day by day?
((Let's see... The bees are responsible for the lion's share of Crowley's superhuman abilities, so... The enhanced speed/strength/durability are constant, as is her regenerative ability.
She's also receiving constant communications from them. Most of it's just chatter amongst themselves but they'll also pass along various extrasensory information and commentary on things going on around her. She's aware of her HUD, more or less, and information like that from the lore honeycombs is more frequent than what gets posted, but often less relevant to anything or particularly interesting. :p
The anima charge she gets off of them is responsible for her lack of need to eat/drink/sleep, and tendency to forget or put those needs off. She genuinely doesn't need to as much as an ordinary human would, and the bees are just as responsible for her trouble with getting a restful sleep as the Dreamers and trauma are.
The bees also maintain her health overall: She can't get sick through mundane means, she isn't subject to ordinary wear-and-tear, and her aging has slowed down massively.
And all of this comes with the trade-off that she can be influenced by things that affect them as well. If they're charged up or agitated for whatever reason, she's going to feel it too, either getting dragged along by their energy or being painfully overwhelmed by it. Smokes tend to bother her more than they would a normal person, particularly that of a fairly rare plant unique to her world that can disable fragments of the Buzzing outright.))

Marinette: *grins* the other day I remembered something that happened on a mission.
Jason: *raises eyebrow*
Marinette: so I know many languages, as you know, right?
Jason: *hums*
Marinette: so I'm on my mission and I'm posed as this waitress and my employer has this shady business going on in the background.
Jason: what kind of business?
Marinette: *shrugs* drugs I think, but he didn't care to hide the papers or take his phone calls away from me.
Jason: *checks his gun* why?
Marinette: because it was all in German.
Jason: *grins* he didn't know you knew German, did he?
Marinette: nope! When I finished my mission and it was my last day there, I went up to him and told him "Ich werde es niemandem erzählen, aber von nun an sollten Sie nicht mehr mit Ihren Mitarbeitern und Kunden über Ihr Geschäft sprechen."
Jason: *shakes his head* what'd he say?
Marinette: cussed me out and told me never to return.
Jason: *laughs*

@liliumsunshine:  ((Firstly, consider what makes you feel better in sense of posting. If the slow route feels bad for you, then don't do that. However, if you want to make sure each feel noticed, do the one a day with maybe a couple reblogs so people can see them.
((Mm... I’d intended for it to go a few days, but eleven feels entirely too slow. 
Maybe I’ll just cut things how I like and make sure everything’s organized properly later.))

((So here’s the thing:
Dark Agartha is meant to be a daily randomized dungeon, right? All well and good, but apparently it comes with the caveat that I can also only get one lore honeycomb a day too. 
I would have started my runs earlier if I’d known that ahead of time...
I have (probably) the entire text for the Dark Agartha lore, but it isn’t divided up by which honeycomb it corresponds to. I can maybe guess at how it’s meant to be broken up and run with that Or I can take the slow road and only actually post one a day for the next week and some.
Thoughts? Suggestions?))
