Anonymous asked: What do you know about the Relickers' backstory?

saint-arthur:

Their backstories are, for the most part, fairly clear. Sort of. A bit. Maybe. They aren’t staggeringly huge mysteries… mostly.

I'll Write It Down - Fallen London | Echo Bazaar

This is the truth of things, what you have learned balancing the scales, carrying and fetching and burning: words carry weight. And these words, and all that they contain, are weighty indeed; that is what you have been taught.

"Your all-black painting still sits in the corner of your room. The eyes at each corner of the frame look a little more alert, somehow. What to do with it?"

"Oh, but what a jolly little opera you have written. You establish your mood quickly. The first song has St Augustine chasing Manichaeans off with a broom. The audience chuckles nervously. The Empress doesn’t seem to be offended, so the work continues. Two bishops in the front row walk out during You’ll Have To Stand Still If You Want To Be A Martyr. The Bishop of Southwark promises to do something very secular to you."

"You describe the bond between the deviless and her pet in simple, evocative verse. The way the little creature used to nestle in her lap and chirp just for her. The way she really seemed to love him…"

Sassy Gay Friend, +10 Persuasive

'A Fallen Londoner is about to entertain a Devil's appeal on the wonders of Abstraction, leading to a life of soullessness, melancholy, and bad posture. This could've been avoided if zie had a sassy gay friend.'

'The Cheesemonger is about to set in motion a plan of brutal and complete revenge with the only agent she trusts, ending in permanent death upon permanent death, the last of which may be her own. This can be avoided, but only if her agent is also her sassy gay friend.'

'The Comtessa — no. No, you did what you had to do for the Comtessa. You did what you thought you had to do. Was there another choice? Another way? Sometimes you still dream of her frightened green eyes.'

'Queen Victoria is about to make a deal with the Bazaar and turn London to the plaything of powers from between stars. This could've been avoided, if she had a sassy gay friend.'

'The Bazaar is about to descend into the Neath, lure a series of cities to join it in darkness, causing catastrophe and heartbreak for eons to come — and still it mourns, and still waits the Sun. This could've been avoided if it had a sassy gay friend (— other, of course, than Mr Wines).'‏

'Exceptional'? 'Unforgettable?' 'Ineradicable?' Well, you can hardly bring yourself to regret it, although it raises concerns about the destination of your soul that you thought you were long past. You are quite certain, now, that she is not his sister…
