15 fucking thousand minutes listening to podcasts, my top genre of the year was steampunk because I listened to the mechanisms a lot my top podcast of the year was tma, I WAS IN THE TOP 7% OF SPOTIFY MECHANISMS LISTENERS AND I DONT EVEN USE SPOTIFY MOST OF THE TIME! FUCK
“Mm. I’m guessing you’re here to deliver me to Nikola? Getting antsy because I didn’t pick up her ritual shopping? I’d apologize, but I’ve been just so busy.”

“Not a thing.”
“Orsinov’ll take care of it all.”
“That she will, that she will–,”
“Is something wrong? Expecting Archivist on easy mode, maybe? I was wondering about that too, but I think I’ve connected the dots. See, I know your walking talking clown doll boss wanted dibs, but recently…I died.”
“Ahead of schedule, I know! Had a bad run-in with–well, several colorful folks. One of whom killed me; at least, killed me enough that I couldn’t put off the choice anymore.”

Elias wasn’t expecting Melanie to land a hit, not this early on. The Slaughter had yet to fester to its truest potential, but the intent behind it was enough. Another mark for his poor Archivist.
