It is a rare creature indeed that might be able to state that he or she has never experienced a Follow-Up Hoover. Should you manage to escape us, then you will be subjected to the might and the blitzkrieg that is the Initial Grand Hoover, so long as we know a way to contact you of course. It can be stated with certainty that should you weather the storm of the Initial Grand Hoover then you will be subjected to Follow-Up Hoovers at some later stage. You may think that once the IGH has taken place and you managed to batten down the hatches, preserve No Contact and keep your head from looking over the parapet that this will be the end of the matter. Not at all. If you escape us, you may have a period of calm as we turn to different sources of fuel, but that does not mean that we have given up the ghost. Furthermore, if you have been discarded then you can expect a Follow-up Hoover at a future point.
The scope, extent and the timing of the Follow-Up Hoover depends on a number of factors, foremost of which is the consideration as to which school your narcissist originates from, whether he or she is of the lesser, mid-range or greater variety. The Lesser, lacking the guile and the energy to embark on a sophisticated campaign of Follow-Up Hoovers is more likely to apply his or her mind to the acquisition (where there has been escape) or the embedding (where there has been discard) of a new primary source. The Follow-Up Hoover needs you to wander into the nearest spheres of influence to cause him to consider the expending of energy to draw that delicious hoover fuel from you.
The Mid-Range of our kind will be similarly pre-occupied but is prepared to put more effort into the Follow-Up Hoover and your wandering into the further spheres of influence will also trigger his interest.
With the Greater of our kind it is not a question of If, but rather when the Follow-Up Hoover will take place. Post escape or post discard, we will busy with the new primary source that we have managed to secure and also feeding from our numerous supplementary sources, but should there be any alteration in the fuel levels from these two sources then this will trigger recollection of you in our mind (the sixth sphere of influence) and this alone will prompt us to look to apply a Follow-Up Hoover against you to draw some further fuel. Should you make the mistake of straying into any of the other five spheres of influence then you will trigger a Follow-Up Hoover from the Greater of our kind. Not only is there the prospect of that remarkable and delicious hoover fuel but there is a score to settle. If you escaped us, we want you back and giving us fuel as the golden period comes calling again, but this is just a ruse. We are waiting with a harsher more brutal devaluation in order to punish you for your treachery. If we discarded you, the position is no different, all that has altered is our reasoning. In this case, you were discarded because you let us down with the provision of fuel. We hoover you through this follow-up on a benign basis in order to give you a chance to put things right, but lurking in the background is the waiting punishment of the harsher devaluation because you got it wrong the first time.
The other factor in determining when this particular hoover will take place is again down to you. Should you sail too close to us in this post Initial Grand Hoover period then you will provoke a Follow-Up Hoover because you have put yourself in our line of sight once again by entering the spheres of influence. You may not even have to speak to us, but rather be seen by us somewhere or post something on social media which causes you to appear like a blip on our radar and we sense the prospect of hoover fuel. This will send you hurtling into our mind once again.
Ordinarily, once we have sought out the new primary source fuel and we are engaged in seducing that person and binding them to us, we are too occupied with draining the positive fuel from this source and enjoying the positive (in the main) fuel that originates from the supplementary sources we will be relying on as well. We may be engaged repairing the damage you have done to our fuel supplies as a consequence of your implementation of No Contact and as a consequence you fall from our mind. We jettison any thoughts of you and erase any memory of you as it no longer serves us any purpose. We know you often think about us after the relationship has ended even when you have made that decision to bring it to a conclusion and we know that you cannot help but be engulfed in the memories of our relationship when we discard you. We however do not think about you in the immediate aftermath. We have no need to. You no longer serve a purpose for us. We have a new primary source to think about. We have various supplementary sources to consider. You have no place.
The only time we will think about you, in the immediate aftermath, is when something triggers the opportunity for us to attempt to obtain some potent hoover fuel from you. This trigger is generated by you doing something to come within one of our spheres of influence (the first five -we do not just think of you yet as per the sixth sphere) and you come within our range once again and thus the memory of all the fuel you provided us will flood into our minds and we will attempt a Follow-Up Hoover.
Once the initial aftermath has passed, usually a number of months, you remain at risk. You may enter one of the spheres of influence (the first give) by reason of you doing something or you may just appear in our mind (the sixth sphere) for no good reason. Any of these could trigger a Follow-Up Hoover. The frequency of these hoovers depends on the relevant narcissist but in some instances they will keep happening month and after month and for years. In other instances you may hear nothing for ten years and then a Follow-Up Hoover will take place. Of all the hoovers, this is the hardest to predict when it will occur but you do play a large part in being the catalyst for them. The Follow-Up Hoover also comes in two forms, benign and malign. The benign form is used by all of our kind and is the one that is most recognised. It is there to win you back and resume the relationship as we seek to seduce you all over again. We may try repeated benign hoovers over a period of time (again influence by your presence in the spheres of influence and the relevant fuel provision at that time from other sources). The Lesser and Mid-Range tend to deal in the benign hoovers the most. The Greater of our kind use them too, but if these benign Follow-Up Hoovers do not cause you to re-connect then the Greater, especially, will switch to savage and Malign Hoovers in order to draw negative fuel. These naturally are not applied in order to resume the relationship, seduce you and gather positive fuel again, but rather to punish you for resisting us, to hurt you and to smear you through the nasty nature of these Follow-Up Hoovers. The actual content of the Follow-Up Hoover varies considerably with all manner of different methodologies applied, for both Benign and Malign but that is a topic for a different occasion. What can be stated however is that you will invariably face at least one Follow-Up Hoover and some of you will have experienced dozens.
