So I'm closing this out myself because I've been following her on Twitter and have come to the conclusion that she's BSC. Definitely not for me.

Nicest rejection to date:
Thank you for considering Fuse Literary in your search for representation. I appreciate you giving me the opportunity to review your work. Unfortunately, it is not right for my list. I held onto it because I was intrigued but ultimately if it's not an immediate yes then I have to pass. I like the writing here but the premise feels a bit quiet. However, I wish you the best luck in your search for the right agent (and hope to see you in print soon).

Sounds to me like she was just making a joke. Nothing to panic over.

@chrisaerith Wow that's ridiculous... my query is in there somewhere. I know it's probably a joke but it's kind of insulting.

Going through her twits before deciding to query and I came across something like this-->

Her March 14 twit: "UPDATE. Failure. I'm at 160 and it's 6pm. I need to reject FASTER. Maybe not even read them, just based on whether I think the author names are cool."

Wth. This person is going into my do-not-query list.

@tnearwoman: if it helps any, it took her 89 days to send me a rejection. She added the comment "I held onto it because I was intrigued but ultimately if it's not an immediate yes then I have to pass."

So I'm sure I was in the maybe folder, but she didn't feel like it was worth repping.

Golden one, thanks, a maybe folder would be nice.

@tbearwoman: I don't think she responds in chronological order. She also has a Maybe folder, so you might be in there.

I can see that she has responded to 16 queries that were sent after mine. I'm wondering if mine did not go through. Did anyone get an auto-response indicating that she received your query? I never got one from her, but not all agencies send them.
