Sylvia Feketekuty seems like a really interesting person, and she wrote some of my favorite parts of Mass Effect. I’m excited to see what she’s done with Josephine!
I’ve had the pleasure of getting to hang out with Sylvia a few times outside of my sessions and she is the actual sweetest. The sessions themselves aren’t so conducive to chatting since we have to be focused on getting through all the lines, but I loved whenever she got to join us, and she was a great sport when I (lovingly!) gave her shit over too many R’s in a sentence. Also, her puppies are so cute jesus I want to meet them so badlyyyyy <3
OP, I’m with you—long before I was Josie’s voice, I loved the things Sylvia worked on for Mass Effect (namely: finally becoming besties with Liara when I originally didn’t care much for her, and just. Legion. Okay? Legion. ALSO GLYYYYPH!!!!!), so finding out that she was going to be writing Josephine was a really exciting moment for me. I had high expectations going into my first session based off of little conversations we’d had here and there, but Sylvia still found ways to surprise me with Josephine, and fantastic moments for me to really sink my teeth into. If anything, I was constantly worried that I wasn’t doing enough to communicate and honor Sylvia’s writing, because she really did a phenomenal job developing Josephine. (And Josie totally aces the Good Italian Girl test as far as characterization goes, so I was extra pleased by that)
tl;dr Sylvia fanclub over here! TBH all of the writers are amazing and I could go on and on about how much I respect them, but we’re talking about Sylvia specifically, soooooooo 8D
In the mid-1930s, an Australian journalist visited Germany to report on the rise of fascism and interview Adolf Hitler. The atrocities she saw there, which included the public beating of Jews, forever changed the course of her young life. Nancy Wake, who died Sunday at age 98, would spend World War II fighting Nazism tooth and nail, saving thousands of Allied lives, winding up at the top of the Gestapo’s most-wanted list and ultimately receiving more decorations than any other servicewoman.
Wake made her way from Spain to Britain, where she convinced special agents to train her as a spy and guerilla operative. In April 1944 she parachuted into France to coordinate attacks on German troops and installations prior to the D-Day invasion, leading a band of 7,000 resistance fighters. In order to earn the esteem of the men under her command, she reportedly challenged them to drinking contests and would inevitably drink them under the table. But her fierceness alone may have won her enough respect: During the violent months preceding the liberation of Paris, Wake killed a German guard with a single karate chop to the neck, executed a women who had been spying for the Germans, shot her way out of roadblocks and biked 70 hours through perilous Nazi checkpoints to deliver radio codes for the Allies.

Confession: I created a female Cousland and named her Cersei. She was a bitch to anyone who couldn’t further her goals. Once she found about Alistair’s heritage she acted warm to him and planned to rule as Queen. When she found that whoever slew the Archdemon died she planned on manipulating Alistair to make the final blow so she could rule alone. But I didn’t know that the wedding only happens AFTER the final battle. So when Anora seized the throne, I was just as pissed as Cersei was.
So exactly like Cersei, then.
Origins to Inquisition: returning characters.
Do they all look off model or is it just me?

Julie D’Aubigny was a 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master who killed or wounded at least ten men in life-or-death duels, performed nightly shows on the biggest and most highly-respected opera stage in the world, and once took the Holy Orders just so that she could sneak into a convent and shag a nun.

Just so y’all know, she later set that convent on fire so she and that nun could sneak out. And she seduced one of the men she’d dueled.
Also, dueling was a serious crime during her life, but the king of France essentially overturned her conviction on the grounds that the relevant law specifically referred to men.how has there never been a million stories about this badass
