True, Pyrrhonist, but then if you go to her query form it says she is still closed.

My query from October was automatically CNR without my doing so. I undid that. This Agent responded to my DVPitYA pitch on Twitter so I’m still holding out hope.

I queried 10/1/2018 on a humorous historical mystery and got a request for a full the next day. I was responding to her interest in heists and comped the novel to the television show Leverage but with a mostly female, diverse cast of characters. Searching for more info on her, I just happened on an interview from 2016 where she said her favorite TV show was Leverage. I didn't know that, but it gives me hope. Checking the data explorer and all the other submissions from October have either been rejected or closed, no reply. Don't know if that should make me feel hopeful or feel lost. Sigh.

I'm calling it, as I am still in "No Decision" land and suspect that is where I will stay, no matter what she's said about responding to all. Closing this one for the sake of my mental health, ha!

Question: since I'm off work with a broken leg (and have been hit with the flu and now a root canal), I've spent way too much time trying to analyze the meaning behind the sad/happy/everything-in-between faces on the timeline. I mean, I know what the faces mean, from good to bad, but what about the Faceless Ones? Those little rows in between, stuck in limbo, with a yellow beam of light pointing their way to a would-be author, slowly climbing their way to the top of the pile, hoping to end with a purple smiley? What happens when they disappear, if they never get a face?
I worry.

Fordwalker- thank you for the note on the data explorer. I had no idea you could see so much information on your query! I'm going to be slightly obsessed now, lol.

@chibichibi - If you click on the 'Data Explorer' button you can watch a list of when her replies come in. Looks like she's sent a couple rejections over the last few days.
