angiebeast asked: 7 for Mona--I'd be interested to know if anything annoys her at all, haha. And 33 and 34.
7.) What are Mona’s pet peeves?
Believe it or not, she does have ‘em! Mona hates drama-mongering - people who try to make a big deal out of everything, especially if it involves getting people to lash out against each other or take sides - she really doesn’t do well with conflict. People who breathe loudly through their mouth. She also hates that squeaky sound that styrofoam makes.
33.) What holidays are celebrated here?
I am so happy that someone asked this. :D The imagination space most definitely does have holidays, but much like their weather, some of it coincides with the collective moods of those down on the physical plane. To try and, contrary to the trend, NOT make this too much of a rambling text wall like so many of my other answers (I am so sorry you guys, I swear.. I just don’t have inquisitive audiences very much and I get carried away! <3) I will just TELL you what the holidays are and what they celebrate! Hearth (which is about the only one that is not for accomplishments or self-betterment but instead honors family and friends, and tends to include LARGE but private gatherings, gift-giving and potlucks), Ascension (normally actually occurs on one season out of imagination plane’s three season cycle, when a representative comes down from the next plane to welcome audience with select citizens - there is ALWAYS a parade on the day-of and lots of congratulatory parties leading up to this one), Enrichment Appreciation (a day given to remember those that have willingly and selflessly given up their time in imagination space to be rerouted down to the physical plane in order to inhabit a human as a kind of “special energy” until they have achieved enough positivity to be reborn on the next plane up… sometimes people barbecue or spend time in the outdoors, while other more somber types will lay flowers and other tokens of affection in the front courtyards of Planar Descension Stations), and Muse’s Day (it’s like Mother’s or Father’s Day but… well, you get the idea).
34.) Are there any important political standards or practices?
There is a court system and also a monetary system in place that is regulated by a government of sorts (with its main offices in New Causal) but I would be straight-up lying to you if I said I had it all fully nailed down into place. I really just know the basics! There is a democratic government in place where citizens of any of the three cities can vote representatives into office to help manage things like construction and maintenance, public transportation, criminal justice (they do have a police force to make sure DECENCY is upheld, even if violent crime is very rare), etc. Representing in public office is about the best thing you can do for yourself next to ascendency, so there are lots of high-ranking notions helping make tough decisions in New Causal. c:
