HOOO BOY I didn’t think I would have to do this in this nearly 3 years down the line, but my inbox has become a hellish wasteland due to misinformation so I’m gonna be as blunt as possible here: I don’t ship Makorra and I haven’t since the show ended.Personally it’s just… not My Jam anymore. It hasn’t been for a while. But that’s not the point of this post.
An old post of mine started going around claiming that my opinion regarding fandom toxicity is invalid because “I’m a 24 year old makorra shipper who’s still bitter about korrasami”. I touched base with the person who left the comment asap to try to figure out what was going on & they told me they had me confused with another blogger. They retracted the statement immediately.
… but the damage had already been done. The version of the post with the “callout” is still circulating.
Look, if this was true and if on top of that I was in fact spreading any kind of hatred or making shitty posts that offended people, I would take this criticism to heart and work to actively change what I was doing. I want and have always wanted this blog to be a safe and comfortable space for anyone and everyone.
But. Honestly. I refuse to go down because of a case of mistaken identity. This is ridiculous, guys.
If you have to call someone out, please try to do a little research. Misinformation can be harmful.
(These are all in non-linear order, so you’ll have to go up and down the AMA to find them)
She’s good friends with Jen Cohn
She loves Pharmercy and thinks the ship is ‘awesome’!
She says that the writing team are ‘always open’ to the VAs sugggestions
And that she might try to ask for more voice lines between Pharah and Mercy (!)

Lucie also says she’s a ‘Mercy main’
She also says she’d love to cosplay Mercy someday
And that she’d love to see a Steampunk skin for Mercy, and a ‘Futuristic Robot Skin’ for Angela
Her favorite projects that she’s worked on:
“The comedy shows I write are always my favorite projects because they come from me, the biggest projects I have worked on have been Overwatch, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them and Red Dwarf. All of them were incredible experiences!”
“If you could have any ability from any hero in Overwatch, what would it be and why?” Lucie: ‘I’d love to have some of Lucio’s Sonic Amplifier because it’s so badass!’
She loves The Wire (!)
The best dessert ever? Cheesecake. And her favorite flavor?
‘What is harder to save… heroes or cupcakes?’ Lucie:
‘Definitely cupcakes. They get eaten so quickly.’
When she first moved to the US, the first thing that ‘intensely fascinated’ her was spray cheese
What Mercy does in her spare time: “Mercy plays soccer and eats chocolate in her free time! She looks for honesty, kindness and loyalty in a friend!“
She can speak German, English, and can understand French, Spanish, Italian and Greek!
Her favorite character in the game, aside from Mercy? Soldier 76. No scratch that, she says she ‘loves them all’.
As for how much of an influence Lucie herself has on Mercy: “I think a lot of my personality influences Mercy because the emotions have to be real and have to come from somewhere!”

She’d also love to visit Iceland and Sweden, and the Philippines too.
Lucie lost a few of her family members during the Holocaust, and that ‘her grandmother had to wear the yellow star, was held hostage and was not allowed to continue studying’.
She says she’d love to turn ‘Hi! Hitler’ into a TV show. Or a film
And the best part about voicing Mercy? Getting introduced to the ‘wonderful gaming community’. And the fans!
Seeing these two amazing leaders together makes me so sad. Kahi started crying because she saw Nu’est and Jonghyun said he almost cried because of Kahi. The moment I saw Kahi crying I started bawling as well. Kahi was the one who first introduced Nu’est back when they debuted and I think she feels like a mother to them. I just checked instagram and saw that former After School member/leader Jungha also posted about Nu’est saying that she supports them. Lizzy commented on Jungha’s post about how sad it was to see them. I’m just glad that Pledis Artists are supporting them even if Pledis itself isn’t doing a good job.
