Skadi reached across the front seat of her queen. Taking the steering wheel in her hands she brought the car into a supermarket parking lot.
"Queen you must press the breaks!" screamed Trix. She was getting ready to slap her but knew that would have it's own consequences. Dying wasn't one of them so she thought the alternative was preferable. Whatever was happening inside of Queen Corvidae's head it was all consuming. She was afraid to know what had happened.
Trix focused back to the problem at hand. Stopping this stupid car. It just affirmed her hatred of cars. Flying was so much more convenient and elegant and it didn't involved huge constructions of metal flying towards other hulking metal death traps.
"Fire!" cried the queen.
"They're dead, all my children at Carkeek." When she first connected to her lover and mate she saw all her beloved children. Then suddenly she could hear the screams and see only bright light. Fire. Normally her crows would know to fly away but it was an explosion of fire. Sudden and all consuming. Her other children that lived throughout the world could feel her cry in their heads. Throughout the world the crow world went on high alert. The Queen had yelled inside their heads.
"Beware to all, there is darkness afoot. I will find it and together we will remove it. We will destroy this enemy so completely there will be no sound, no stories about this being, we are one family, united we will have our justice." And as a whole species they knew her words were true. The bravest warriors from all the clans across the world were already finding their way to her. Her army of black.

Most of the time she only allowed a select few of her crows vision enter into her consciousness. Otherwise she found it difficult to navigate the human form. Her mate was one of those strong connections she monitored. He was in charge of their large tribe. He oversaw conflicts and held court while she was gone. She checked in as she was approaching her destination to see Odin in Ballard.
As she looked through her mate's eyes she saw fire. She could feel his fear, the crows in her family were terrified. She started loosing control of the black Mustang.
"What the Fuck!" screamed Skadi. She could see that her Queen was somewhere else. She knew that something bad was happening because her Queen, the strength of her tribe was ashen and looked terribly afraid and then terribly alone. Worst of all she had lost complete control over the vehicle and Skadi was sure they were going to crash into the car in front of them.
"Something's wrong!" yelled Trix. Trix too was feeling the waves of fear wash over her mistress. Her Queen was never afraid. She was fearless and somewhat ruthless in her rulings. This was bad, very bad......

As the gentle screams of her handmaidens went on in the background as she drove towards Ballard, the All-Father, and most likely a heap of trouble she thought of what she had to leave behind.
She was responsible for one of the largest Roosts in the city. She was the hive mind for all of the crows across the world but her home was Carkeek Park. She liked the ocean views, the forests and she missed her mate.
As an immortal she had to learn that life and death were fluid things. As a crow, family was everything. Your mate had your back, your children, your parents and siblings. As an immortal she forever lived but her family changed and morphed over the millennia. It didn't matter because she loved them all fiercely.
She had left her mate in charge of the family, her precious crows. He was well suited for the task as she had chosen him from all the male crows, but she hated to be away. Her handmaidens were the only ones who lived as she did, immortal, gifted to her to watch and protect her. Sigh, Skadi and Trix were the best, the most fierce excepting in the case of her driving.
"Please stop screaming you two, I think we are just about to Ballard and then I have to park this hulk of a car." She said with annoyance. I mean, if you can't handle a car weaving in and out of traffic at high speeds what kind of bird were you anyway?

The Story of the Queen of the Crows:
"Mother, the clans are becoming restless. There is something coming and they don't like it. " Her lieutenant reported to her, strain in his voice. He was one of her many sons that served her.
Queen Corvidae could feel it too. It was a queasy feeling mixed with anticipation. She just wanted whatever it was to happen.
"Thank you son, you are dismissed back to your clan. I think it's time I have a talk with the All-Father Odin." Queen Corvidae was tired. The trip to get to the All-Father was long and dangerous but she had no choice.

It's time to emerge
To play, to discover the world
Oh but to stay in this comfy place!
The time is fast approaching when this chrysalis palace
Will be no more and I must dry my wings in the sun
Just so as to be correctly unfurled through the length of my wings....
Then to the dance of drinking sweet nectar!
From all the flowers I can find...
Yes it's time to be my full self colorful with wings outstretched....
Oh thank you dear chrysalis for your safety and warmth.
I'm ready now!
