Best way to get the most out of Evangeline

All of Evangelines dialog should fit her character of being a good person and having her own troubles. I hope I did get it right and have no inconsistency in her dialog.
Evangeline has so much to say you might not get all of it from one play-through. There are a lot of lines about quests that you need to initiate by asking her about her opinions about current quests. There are so many lines that reveal itself by being together with Evangeline quite some time but Evangeline won't say them on herself, you have to ask her instead. So, in short, you need to talk to her often. Some of the dialog will be marked as used yet has new lines, that is nothing I can change.
Evangeline has her own mind. If she wants to visit her friend Voada she will do it. You can prevent this but Evangeline won't like it.
There are several emotions Evangeline is capable off and showing/telling you about. Joy, love, anger, sadness, surprise and fear.
Over a dozen rare one time events can be uncovered. Those are just small things that can happen anywhere anytime like Evangeline is turned into a turnip for a few seconds.
Evangeline is fully integrated into the world of Skyrim. All scenes that occur are recognized by her and she will react to them. She is known to the persons and towns she talks about having visited before meeting you. So talk to her to get the big picture.
