Since I only have the one pup, I always feel so weird about SOTP-ing, but here goes?

State of Flavia: Pretty good! Has been actively avoiding discussing anything that may or may not have happened in January re: turning into an adult for a week/looking like her dead mother/abandoning Ophelia in the park/being a horrible excuse for a human being let alone a de Luce. Of course, she and Ophelia are finally talking again in an EP, so we'll see where that goes.

Has also been selling Girl Scout cookies to any and all Darrowites, even though the money isn't going towards the troop doing anything cool like a science museum sleepover (and is instead going towards makeovers at the beauty salon in a month or two, which will probably be an EP if anyone is interested in dealing with an angry child with a ridiculous hairdo).

Seeing Stones: Definitely doing stuff with her for this! Most of it's going to be happy (winning the Nobel Prize! discovering new poisons! an illustrious career in forensics, solving crimes with science!); some of it's bittersweet (a future where Harriet isn't dead after all/arrives in Darrow!); and one...

One is going to be terrible. Later on in her canon, there's actually a point at which she falls/gets pushed off the roof of her house during a snowstorm, and I really want her to see that and a) think she dies at some point back home and b) later on, start trying to solve her own murder. I'm trying to decide if the actual seeing of that particular future is better served as an EP or a private thread, so opinions are definitely welcome.

Somewhere down the line, this'll lead into a canon update where she finds out she doesn't die after all (yay!), but for now, it's just going to freak her out.

Birthday Party: Her birthday's coming up in May, and I want to do a party post of some kind (probably a gathering) for her and all her friends. Also, there's going to be mad science in the form of liquid nitrogen ice-cream making, so that should be fun.

Cookies for you if you made it this far!

State of the Me: Meh. Hanging in there; work is better, the summer is here (even though that means endless humidity, why did Becca and I move to a swamp), but I've just been in a pervasive bleh mood recently. Hoping it ends soon. <3

State of the Flavia: AWESOME. Became a tiny lie detector, which was more trouble than it was worth; got to be a hero during the bees post as well as a damsel in distress (multitasking!); got her first kiss, which has turned into so many awesome, unexpected threads about consent that I am just loving, high five to all of Flavia's adult role models in Darrow because you all rock.

Because I got a little snowed under with her tags in June (digging my way out, slowly but surely, so apologies for all the delays you wonderful people have experienced in our threads, it's not you, it's me), I'm planning to take it a bit easier in July, with one big exception: Revenge. Spurred on by Ophelia's horrible experience with Edmund, Flavia is going to show the unsuspecting Mr. Quince what it means to trifle with the de Luce sisters. Hint: it means a tiny angry poisoner trying to ruin you with chemistry. (Kaine, this doesn't mean you're right about her being a supervillain, hush)

I'm conflicted as to the how, but I've narrowed it down to a few ideas--suggestions and thoughts welcome in comments!

a) Psychological Warfare: Flavia finds him at a cafe, eating a dessert (probably something with almonds, for fearmongering purposes). Maybe she brings him whatever it turns out to be, like it's an apology gift from Ophelia? Something. Proceeds to casually mention that you can get cyanide from almonds; sometimes, bitter almonds even get mistaken for regular almonds--that dessert you're eating could be poisoned right now. Is it poisoned? Could it be? Take a bite and find out, Edmund. This could work equally well (I think) as a oneshot or an EP.

b) Psychological Warfare Plus: As above, with the addition that after she's gotten him good and panicky, Flavia offers to give him an antidote. Antidote turns out to be ipecac or some other emetic; public vomiting ensues along with public humiliation. Revengy funtimes are had by all, except Edmund. Best as an EP.

c) What's Good for the Goose: Flavia repeats what she did to get revenge on Ophelia in canon and puts distilled poison ivy into some sort of grooming product. For Ophelia, it was lipstick; Edmund's will be aftershave or shampoo or something (the result of a bait-and-switch of bottles at the convenience store, probably). This would probably be a backdated one-shot, but a few (handwaved) weeks afterward, once the blisters and boils have had time to surface, I'd put up an EP of Flavia making Scientific Observations on the experiment...and if people want to help start a rumor he has a social disease, that's OK with Flavia.

Option C is currently my favorite of the three options, but A and B have their own particular charms.

Also on the horizon for Flavia: the summer science camp from hell (thanks to Deense for the idea!) and going on a nature walk with Combeferre, along with whatever shenanigans the rest of you cook up that Flavia is compelled to stick her nose in. :D

jesus on a hamster, this is long; cookies for you if you stuck it out to the end!

State of the Me: Hanging in there. Work is frantic, the school year is ending (if you are a student please hug your closest department admin, we need it), and tags have just...not been happening, which I feel terrible about. Slowly crawling my way out of the pit, and hoping things will improve soon. Ugh.

State of the Flavia: Excellent. I'm still loving throwing her at everyone, and don't ever expect that to change. Current projects include being a general nuisance at the detectives in Darrow (read: John Watson and Veronica Mars, so far--she just wants to find a crime for you and help solve it, friends, come on), doing science, and running around with her group of friends from school.

Speaking of those friends...one of them has a crush, and I have plans to do something about it probably next month (or at the very least, before the Darrow school year ends). It's going to be a beautiful disaster, and I welcome all of Flave's friends/mentors/parental figures to help her through it.

I'm also super excited for Ophelia's imminent arrival--I think it's going to shake things up for her and Ophelia both, and I'm really interested to see what their dynamic is once they're both in the city and settled.

State of the Queue: forever in limbo. I feel like I need to get a better grip on life before I even remotely consider bringing in another pup, but god damn if I don't keep picking up new people in my brain, at least temporarily. We'll see if anyone sticks around by the time my life is in order.
