Are you my daddy?        [Dishonored/Doctor Who] by PiuPiu-Littlebird Are you my daddy?        [Dishonored/Doctor Who] by PiuPiu-Littlebird

OMG Corvo, she's infected!! Drop her and run!!! Don't let her touch you!!   
Haha... I had Doctor Who in my mind lately. I really need to catch up with the series...

Nah but seriously... is he? Corvo? Emily's dad?

Everybody seems to think so. And so do I. I mean... look at how he interacts with her in the game... look how her mother interacts with Corvo.

To me, there no doubt: he's the baby's daddy.

There's just one big question that's been plaguing my mind while I was playing the game though:

How in the Hell was everybody in the game okay with this???

I mean, the mother in an unwed Empress!! You know that would stir shit up!

Why with all the conspiracies, the succession wars, brothers and cousins and uncles fighting over who should succeed on the throne?
Adding a bastard child to the mix would only make things even messier. Just look at European history. (and if you're not a big History aficionado, just think about Games of Thrones)
Bastard children were not always heartily welcomed. If ever.

Plus, without wanting to add any unnecessary feminist statement here, being a woman in a position of power such as being an empress would be even harder.
I mean, a king fucks around, makes babies, lots of people disagree, brothers/cousins get annoyed, and then they usually move on. (or try to have them killed) And the king would still be the king.

But if it was to be a woman... well let's be honest. People would shun her, call her a slut, a whore, they'd offer her less support in her maintaining her power over her country/empire. Because, when did anybody in politics openly associated with a slut and preserved any kind of serious influence? Not many. In fact, I don't know anybody that did... do you?
Think about it.

So, how in the world an unmarried Empress (as the developers of the game stated) managed to have a kid, maintain her power, and have nobody give her any kind of shit for about ten years??? ('cause Emily looks about 10)

So here's my theory... (theory that I'm guessing alot a people already had, and I'm just reaaallly really late to the party, but WHADEVA. My page, my ramblings, bitch.)

Corvo and Jessamine made the horizontal mambo during a Fugue Feast.

And that would make sense.

For those who played the game without reading any of the books in the game/forgot about it, or for those who didn't know, the Fugue Feast is a period of time in the game by the end of their calendar year when anything goes.
And I mean anything.
What happens in this period of time is not recorded, and any crimes or infidelity committed at the time is considered as having never happened. In fact, its religiously forbidden.

Acknowledging anything that happened then would be going against the scriptures, or something like that.…

Which would explain why nobody would, or rather could, complain about Jessamine's illegitimate child.
And that any comment suggesting this in the game were really vague, and that the characters quickly changed subjects.

My mind splattered all over my wall when I realized this.

Clever girl, Arkane... clever girl...  

Anyway. you just reached the end of my overly long rambling. Hi!  How is it going? I hope everything's going well for you.

[Edit] Btw if you managed not to get bored up to this point, you might want to got ahead and check out the comments section as well. People made some pretty interesting theories :nod:

You thought a lot about this O_O :)

Indeed I have :) I had the whole duration of the game. Since the very first opening narration.

That's skill! :D is it a hobby of yours?

What? the long-winded monologues? Yes. Yes it is. :D

Hahah ;D nah I meant the thought process, do you often think about games(/movies/whatever) and do you find it as a perk? (Heh.. I'm just wondering... )

Uuuuuuuuuuuuuh I DUNNO
Thinking is pretty much all I do. Sometimes ideas just come to me. Sometimes gently, like "O hai that's neat", other times they're like a hard slap on the face. And if they are painful enough, I make a drawing/long post about them. :3
There's no guaranty that those ideas would end up being great though..

You don't talk about the Fugue Feast.
