FORM: Sending Crystal
SENDER: Josephine Montilyet
RECIPIENT: Everyone!
WHAT: A question! (Please talk to her, she's lonely.)
WHEN: Current
WHERE: Skyhold
NOTES: n/a


Good evening, everyone. My name is Josephine Montilyet and I am the Ambassador for the Inquisition. I've not had the pleasure of meeting as many of you as would like personally, so... I thought this might be an easier, more - ah - approachable way of getting to know each other better.

( She clears her throat as though to prevent herself from rambling. )

I must confess I do not know where to start. Perhaps a conversational ice-breaker will have to do. ( So much for not rambling. ) What do you miss most about your life before the Inquisition?
thecookery: (That is. Nice.)

[Crap. She should... probably answer or something? But man, this touchy-feely stuff is so awkward.]

I don't know, uh... My mum's shop, I guess?
thecookery: (I mean it's fine.)

[personal profile] thecookery 2016-08-30 02:09 pm (UTC)(link)
It's a bakery, in Denerim. I haven't seen it since before the war broke out.
thecookery: (I think that is a kangaroo.)

[Honestly, Avery's not sure why she included that detail? She doesn't often discuss that sort of thing...]

She writes. Sometimes I write back. She's a lot better at it than I am.
thecookery: (That's her. My future wife.)

Kind of hard to picture.

[...wait.]

Not hard to picture that your mum would miss you. Obviously, she would do that. Just that yours and mine would be much alike at all, yeah?

Er... That still sounds pretty bad, doesn't it? [Andraste's tits, Avery, get your foot out of your mouth immediately!!] It wasn't meant to. Sorry, uh, ma'am.
thecookery: (Clearly she does have them.)

[personal profile] thecookery 2016-08-31 07:48 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh thank the Maker! That could have gone very bad.]

How do you figure?
thecookery: (The date seems to be going well.)

[personal profile] thecookery 2016-08-31 08:13 am (UTC)(link)
...no, I suppose not.

[Especially about the praying. If Avery had to guess, hers probably does enough of that for two, maybe three mothers.]
thecookery: (Don't mind if I do.)

[personal profile] thecookery 2016-08-31 02:35 pm (UTC)(link)
[Okay, that was not expected in the slightest and actually gets a proper laugh out of her. Congrats, this may be a first since Avery got to Skyhold??]

And... maybe it's not so "fancy" or "important" but there's work to be done at home too. Do you know what I had to handle all by my poor, lonesome self last week in front of everyone? You should have heard the neighbors talking.

[Her accent through it all stays the same, but her voice does go a bit more shrill.]
thecookery: (Do I take that as a compliment?)

[personal profile] thecookery 2016-09-01 02:20 am (UTC)(link)
Oh, there's always some event or another with a big order for the bakery every so often. You wouldn't believe it from her letters, but she actually can find other people to help when she needs.

I guess it's not completely the same though. It's mostly just been the two of us running the place since-- [She hesitates, then clears her throat to cover the awkward moment.] ...well, since she lost her husband.
thecookery: (I mean it's fine.)

[personal profile] thecookery 2016-09-01 03:02 am (UTC)(link)
It's always just been the two of us.
thecookery: (I think that is a kangaroo.)

[personal profile] thecookery 2016-09-01 03:13 am (UTC)(link)
Three? What was that like?

[Avery seems to be having trouble with her imagination as well.]
thecookery: (The date seems to be going well.)

[personal profile] thecookery 2016-09-01 05:30 am (UTC)(link)
[Oh, Avery knows a thing or two about childhood scuffles as well but, uh, there's no need to get into that! Someone like the Ambassador would surely frown on that sort of thing.]

Well... if they're ever around Skyhold, you can always try sending them down to me for a while. Maybe a bit of kitchen duty would help age them.
thecookery: (Good coloration.)

[personal profile] thecookery 2016-09-01 02:02 pm (UTC)(link)
[Hey, wanna see a neat trick Avery learned when she was on the streets of Denerim instead of playing The Game?]

Have you asked them?

[It's called having no subtlety.]
