Who else has gotten a full request for a shelved manuscript...from an agent whose colleague has the full of the current manuscript?
 
Same agency, different agents, different manuscripts.
 
It happened to me this week, and I'm still awed by the coincidence. I told the requesting agent about the situation and haven't gotten a response yet. I'm nervous--but excited. What are the chances??

I say send it in.  

 

The worse case is a no, but that won't happen if they don't get the MS.

:D I sent the full a while ago with an explanation about the situation. No response yet from either agent. Fingers crossed!

Update!
 
It's a tangled-up situation, so I'll just give the current status: Both agents have the first manuscript.
 
​When everything settles down, I'll write a longer post about what happened. Fingers crossed. :)
