The Queen’s death.
On October 31st, at exactly 12:34am, Fodder’s mother - the Queen - passed away from complications of pancreatitis.
While her soul was gone, her willpower remained. Her impact upon Fodder and the kingdom remained.
Fodder mourned, briefly, before returning to work.
$REDACTED had fired Fodder from his job.

Blackbird claw, raven wing
Under the red sunlight
Long clothesline, two shirtsleeves
Waving as we go by
Hundred years, hundred more
Someday we may see a
Woman king, wristwatch time
Slowing as she goes to sleep.
— from Iron & Wine - “Woman King”
