So here’s a lady who doesn’t get enough love in DA fandom. Rica’s in a tough situation. She’s the one left in charge of the family; yeah, your Brosca fights and earns a little bit of coin - whatever’s left over from your debts to Baraht - but Rica is the one who’s taken it upon herself to do what needs to be done to get the hell out of the gutter. It’s not pretty; for the desperate, sex work rarely is. But it’s the only chance they have.
(Yeah, maybe they could just go to the surface, but then what? It not only takes courage to leave the only home you’ve ever known, it takes resources, contacts, something you believe will help you do something besides starve underneath the endless sky.)
And Rica is obviously very good at what she does. You don’t know it when you leave home, but she’s caught the eye of a prince. Obviously there are other dwarven women doing what she does, but she’s determined to be the best. Maybe Baraht is paying for all the clothes and lessons, but she’s the one who learns how to speak, how to sing, how to talk to a nobleman and get exactly what she wants from him. She has the talent, she just needs the opportunity to wield it.
Rica’s femininity is a weapon, one she uses as well as your Brosca wields a sword. She uses it to get herself into the royal palace. You can blame the ridiculous dwarven caste system for putting her in a position where sex and motherhood are her only options to get ahead, but you can’t blame her for using what she’s got to better herself. She’s a survivor, and a caretaker, and someone who knows how to play the game she was born into.

If we add the word “leaked” to this will it make it more exciting? If “leaked” means “uploaded by the animation studio” then this is even more “leaked” than when “leaked” meant “shown to 1000’s of people at Comic-Con”.
I don’t know if that was a twenty-four hour stomach flu (in a twelve hour format?) or food poisoning, but it was a nightmare I don’t want to repeat any time soon. I appear to have broken through to the other side so here’s hoping :|
