Agent D: You could’ve dressed up for this, darling.

Woman in Black: How do you know I didn’t?

I could be in the most amazing, elaborate cosplay EVER, and you just can’t remember it when you aren’t looking at me.

Agent D: . . .

To the best of my recollection I’ve never even met you before, and yet I feel strangely confident that you are not.

…You know it only just dawns on me that the WIBs enchantment isn’t the best thing to use on a case officer.

I’ve always figured that whatever her mojo is… it wasn’t her idea. I figure that she’s an agent, same as Agent D, and acts as a go-between for Acai and Secret Order of Monster Hunters. WiB knows details (” She’s like a foot shorter than I am! “) about Acai who Recommended WiB to President Romarin, President Romarin’s orders conerning adding Long-Runners to Thorn’s Backup Squad was contingent on Acai’s Approval, and (maybe a different person, admittedly) Was a celebrity/Historical figure back when Hedge and Grassie was not concidered a classic of early crystal broadcast comedy… because the show was a classic of current crystal broadcast comedy.

If the Woman in Black were to give someone an order- let’s say she tells Agent D to go to the kitchen and bring her a snack- how much of that would D recall once she’s out of W.I.B’s field of influence? World she still think “I came out here to get a snack” or is it the “why am I in this room again” school of thought?

It varies from person to person, depending on their natural immunity level and how much they’ve built up from exposure to the WiB. Some would lose the thread completely; others would remember that they wanted to get a snack, but forget who it was for.

D has built up enough resistance that the memories don’t fade until she and the WiB have been separate for a while. She would be able to get the snack and bring it back before forgetting that the WiB was waiting.
