knowing that i probably won’t be able to join the site until like four days after it opens since i have sorority stuff from 7:15 am - 11:00 pm on sunday is actually the worst
this is a post to say that i won’t post much in the tag this weekend or anything bc i’m in the process of sorority recruitment (WUT IDK) but i’m leaving a link to mathilda, libby, and annika (their blurbs are linked in that post!!) in case anyone wants to plot!!
SEPTEMBER 1, 1939 // STRASBOURG, FRANCE
"there’s talk that france will be next. it’s only a matter of time."
mathilda listened as the men at the table spoke of the war. spoke of this thing which she was supposed to have no knowledge of as a woman. spoke of this thing which was not meant to concern her.
"well certainly we must do something. someone must stop the germans."
she finally interjected. it was meant to not concern her, but it did. this was her home. strasbourg was her home, and just hours before she had been told that they were to leave it in the morning. as if an evacuation was the way to solve the problem
"you can’t just stop the germans, silly girl."
maybe she couldn’t. maybe she wasn’t going to be the one to end the war, but she wasn’t going to be the one that didn’t try. france would not become the next victim. the men could keep their discussions. she was going to act.
REQUEST FOR 5 SISTERS, 1 BROTHER

REQUEST FOR AN ALLIED AIRMAN LI
"i have to stay in france. i have to save them."
"then who's going to save you?"
elizabeth eva fairburn:
someone as dangerous, tainted and flawed as you //
you got the world but baby at what price?
something so strange, hard to define
i’m back from class so gimme plots ~
- elizabeth “libby” fairburn - she is one of six daughters of the fairburns, a minor british aristocratic family. she was a member of the bright young things group in the london social scene during the period of the 1920’s - 1940’s. she eventually marries the founder of the british union of fascists and is considered a prominent supporter of the fascist movement and hitler himself through her assocations with her husband. she is a pretty passive person and despite knowing that she has a great deal of influence, she does not attempt to speak out about or stop the wrong things happening around her. needs: the rest of her siblings!! and also her husband. it might also be interesting to have members of the bright young things group, which would include her first husband that she married at 18 before her parents forced her to divorce him.
- mathilda sarkozy - originally from namur, belgium, mathilda joins the french resistance using the code name “jean” following the fall of the french third reich. after the arrest of two of her leaders, she becomes in charge of the pyrenees escape network that provides a route for allied airmen back to the uk, despite her young age. she begins traveling all over france in an effort to save these men and eventually falls for one of them, although is aware of the risk that comes with it. needs: her love interest because angsty dangerous plots y/y. also maybe other french resistance members because that’d be fun!! and allied airmen that she might have helped back to safety considering she saved almost 300 men.
- annika obermeier - born and raised in germany in a prosperous family, annika and her brother are basically the perfect aryan children. annie, as her mother called her, wanted her to have a future in show business immediately and from a young age she took part in ballet and dance classes before acting in a couple films. this garnered her some fame throughout germany but her true calling eventually became photography and filmmaking. she produced a couple films in the 1930’s, but her real notoriety came from the propaganda films she produced for the nazi party during the war. hitler, seeing her as the perfect german girl, commissioned her to provide films for him. given her family and the propaganda that, ironically enough, she was exposed to over the years, she truly believed this cause was a good one and wanted to do her part to help it. needs: someone should make her canon brother. also she needs a love plot of some kind but i have absolutely no ideas??? i kind of want her to be a lesbian but not even realize it until some girl seduces her so maybe that?!
