Oh The Irony!
So the other day I received a curious e-mail.
Gwen Thackeray is now following you on twitter.
Now my first impression was “How cool is this? Some enterprising soul over at ArenaNet (I hope) has created a twitter account for our favorite fickle heroine!” As soon as I got home I promptly follwed her and eagerly awaited whatever she had to say.
But then I got to thinking. Why would Gwen want to follow, of all people, me? I’m on record as being, not only a charr sympathizer, but an outright traitor to Ascalon! Never mind that Morgan Ascot has fought and died (repeatedly) in the defense of that noble land. Given the first opportunity I promptly defected.
In her new life, could dear Gwen be growing soft? Even Ember Doomforge called her ‘Gwen the Goremonger’. Or is it that she’s just become more canny? I’m a female, and a charr enthusiast. In Gwen’s time female charr are less than second-rate citizens. They are denied their birthrights, banned from the fahrar, relegated to menial duties.
Perhaps our dear Gwen is realising the truth in the age-old saying: The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
I’m glad to swap tweets with you Mrs. Thackeray, may the ladies stand tall!
