Her rejection was likely a form but did have some level of possible personalization. She liked the intriguing premise and said the writing was solid. No reason given for the pass. I appreciated she responded to my query after 121 days.

I also got a "didn't connect with the character" as the reason for her rejection, but she does seem to personalize what she likes about the work, which I think is amazingly kind. She said she liked my action scenes, so that felt good even though it was a rejection. :)

ER: 5/20 - Though it was through Query Manager, she actually gave helpful feedback, the second agent to do that. I think right now, she's still combing through queries so if you're hoping to hear from her, she might respond soon, just a heads up :)

Polite form rejection saying that she couldn't connect to the characters despite finding the premise interesting. Also that she gave it a lot of consideration :D

Might not be form which was appreciated:
"Writing is strong and I found the fantastical premise intriguing, I wasn't quite able to connect with the characters..."

A letter stating she did not connect with the manuscript. It was hard to tell whether or not it was a form response. It had that vibe where it could have been pre-written or it also could have been personal.

33 day nudge
several days later rejection -- may have been form but seemed to be personalized
