Rants, ruminations, and rambling remarks from my mad, muddled, meandering mind.

Illuminata: Visionary

In character as Samantha Hawthorn:

So I've been at this whole Bees-ness for a while now, following KG's orders to the letter—if not the spirit—and basically doing what I think is right despite her. After dealing with the mess in Egypt, I was kind of feeling unappreciated, to be honest. But KG's acting like I had any other choice but to stop the Heretic King. She says I'm an "Instigator." I really don't give a crap whether the Orochi Group got their nose bent outta shape. They were messing with things they clearly couldn't handle.

I just don't think the self-centered, what's-in-it-for-me corporate culture of the Illuminati is my cuppa tea. I don't fit in with the backstabbing politics going on at HQ. Katzu can have his Manhattan lunches, wrapped around KG's finger. I'd rather be out in the field doing actual work, helping actual people where I can. I have managed to help a few people—I hope—and even made some historical discoveries, like the Loyola Manuscript and the Darkness War. But . . .
After recovering the Orochi data for Senator Cicero, I guess I got a little leverage. I got this call, from the the Eye-in-the-Sky, Mr. "Pyramidion" himself:

"Where there is no vision, the people perish. I spy with my All-Seeing Eye, a New and Improved! woman of vision. It's a Small World After All. I love it when a plan comes together. There's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow. Thank you for your support."
KG wasn't particularly thrilled about it, but she has made some concessions to my style. "Yes-people have their place," she said. "They make neat dogs. But sometimes the Company needs Instigators."

I may just fit in after all.
