Mrs V. M. McCrimmon was a small and compassionate representative of the Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Remakes in the City of the Saved. (PROSE: Philology: The Real Professional Bag of Tricks) She was very keen that others recognise she was married.
She knew Grandfather Halfling in her first life. (PROSE: Postscript) She was initially terrified after her resurrection in the City, but McCrimmon found friends from her previous life and became part of a family of sorts. Working with the SPCR, McCrimmon opposed the Cognitive Philology Association several times. McCrimmon helped the Remake Aemos find a home with the Jama'a. (PROSE: Cognitive Philology Association)
While sorting mail at the SCPR Mission at the South Gate, McCrimmon received a narratively unstable postcard addressed to her and Grandfather Halfling. The postcard had a picture of a blonde woman and no writing. McCrimmon reasoned that it was a simple "hello to the world" sent by the actualised potential of the pictured woman. (PROSE: Postscript)
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
Intended as a homage to the then-recently passed Deborah Watling, Mrs V. M. McCrimmon could be interpreted to be Victoria Waterfield, married to Jamie McCrimmon in her second life in the City. Victoria's middle name is given as "Maud" in PROSE: The Age of Ambition. James Bojaciuk said that PROSE: Postscript was partially inspired by the death of Deborah Watling.
