For me it's a combination.
1. In our portion of the IC thread, it seems like Aramil is up for a response.
2. I've been busy.
3. I'm really feeling like I need to read up on the blood war as well as the various fiends etc when I find some time. My nerd knowledge feels like it's failing me. I never really bothered reading up on this stuff, so I feel like Pavick would probably know a lot more about this all than I do right now.
As for your idea, I'm neither pleased nor displeased with it. I think it's probably a lot more exciting to people who know more about the inner workings of devil and/or demon society. Zorella's trinket coming back into things was not at all unexpected. It was already pretty much a given that what we brought back to her would come back to bite us and was tied into this whole situation. It doesn't take Elan to see that; it's just the way these stories work.
