Yesss, summer break! Have any fun plans?

I’m not sure yet … I would love to take another road trip, like I did last year, and maybe end up in Chicago at some point. But I don’t know if it will come together. :D 

How about you? 

Oh. Oh, oh, OH!

I thought the deadline for DABB final drafts was April 20th, but I just peeked at their Tumblr page, and turns out I had the wrong date in my head … it’s not due until the 28th. THANK THE MAKER!!!!!! THIS MAKES MY LIFE SO MUCH BETTER!

If you ever need to feel sadder about Zevran Arainai think about his Fade nightmare.

Each companion, when convinced that they are indeed trapped in a nightmare, aids you in the fight against the demons who turn on you. Each, with the exception of Shale, Dog, and Zevran. The first two, because no fight is necessary to wake them from their dreams. The last, because Zevran is simply too scared to help you, even after remembering that he is already a Crow.

Despite remembering you, despite knowing you tell the truth, he stands aside, not daring to raise his blades against the faces of his Crow tormentors. It is not until they lie dead that he can find his bravado again, chuckling about a good racking and asking where those luscious wood nymphs had gone. Repress, deny, survive.

If you ever want to feel even sadder about Zevran Arainai think about the curious appearance of his Crow torturers.

Wonder about their elven background and the vallaslin adorning their faces. Consider Crow demographics and the likelihood and potential circumstances of a Dalish elf becoming a Crow. Then ponder on Zevran’s comment to Harhen Sarel at the Dalish camp, on how they have Dalish up in Antiva City, though they’re much more violent, or so he’s heard. Think about a young Zevran escaping the Crows and running off to join the Dalish when they came near Antiva City, eyes bright and full of hope, thoughts on soft leather and delicate embroidery and a family he never knew. Think about a young Zevran somehow ending up on a rack undergoing his Crow initiation regardless. Thoughts of warm hands and kind smiles repressed, denied.

If you ever want to feel happy about Zevran Arainai think about how much he’s grown.

How he may have killed the last four assassins they’ve sent after him, and ah all their men, oh and the Guildmaster. How two of the seven Crow Guildmasters are already in his pocket and the Guildmaster of Rialto is mysteriously dead. How every disaffected Crow ever cheated of their tithes, driven into hiding, or threatened into silence is being found and turned by Zevran. Think about how the Crows are being torn apart from within by a single elf in a pair of fine Antivan boots, soft Dalish gloves, and a smile that finally reaches his eyes.

Sketch of Gauvain, heretherebdragons's character, for the Easter Egg Hunt picture.
Orlesian noble and Celene’s cousin. I hope I got him more or less right? I wasn’t sure about the hair (no wig… would he still have a ponytail ore just short, kind of curly/messy hair? What hair does he have?… heretherebdragons, let me know what kind of hair he has ^^”) The hair right now is just more or less a “place holder”… 
Other than that… is this Orlesian fancy enough or too much? I took references from Venetian as well as French outfits… 

AHHHHH This is WONDERFUL so far! I AM SO EXCITED ABOUT ARTWORK OF MY PRECIOUS BB GAUVAIN! THank you so much! <3333

Dragon age elf discussion on my dash getting me excited before bed,

What’s even more shitty for elves is that there’s this history of elves leaning out a supportive hand and then being (surprise surprise) screwed over by shemlen.

The ancient ruins in Origins showed humans and elves living together and this eventually ended up with elves being enslaved.

Ancient Elven magic was a huge part of creating the grey wardens and was supposed to help free them from slavery. Result? Wardens get their Arch demon magic. Elves get screwed.

Elves support Andraste in return for freedom and a place to call home?

Well they get it up until the shemlen Andraste worshippers lead a march against them and wipe out the homeland. and this is proper wiped out not an occupation like the Feraldans love to bring up.

Oh and generously allow city elves to live in their cities so long as they have the shemlen religion forced on them, no longer worship their own gods and in return get to live in ~lovely~ slums as cheap expendable labourers. And aren’t allowed swords to defend themselves.

Oh and the Dalish, the scattered nomads with small populations? They’re under contract to give up their warriors to the Wardens in a time of Blight in Origins, their best and fittest. Given their population size it’s a hugely different scale from the others.

All this is a very clear pattern and people are still surprised/offended that Dalish and a lot of City elves want fuck all to do with Shemlen?

I love this blog a lot, and I hope that even if someone isn’t named directly, they know how much their contribution to the fandom has made it a fun place to be. It wouldn’t be the same without ALL of our contributions, and you matter just as much.

A couple more from the shoot with azimedes. The downward shots are among my favourite, though it was hard to avoid Seattle’s rather eclectic litter I MEAN someone really needs to talk to Alistair about leaving his socks around.

I would imagine he was younger but at the same time IIRC he tells Cousland that running Highever would certainly be more work than his small estate. Something like that. I guess it could be up in the air?

Oh, good point! I’d forgotten that he says that, and it does make it sound like he will one day be the one running that “small estate.” Thanks. :)

Is there some consensus (or even canon) about whether or not Dairren (Lady Landra’s son in the Cousland origin story) was an only child, or if he has siblings? I seem to recall there being some dialogue that references a sibling, but I can’t find it now, and it’s not listed on his Wiki page (or Landra’s). And maybe I imagined that? Either way, what do people think? Siblings? And if so, older or younger? It kind of seems that since he was being sent to squire for Bryce, he might not have been Bann Loren’s heir. Or maybe that actually would be an appropriate activity for a young man who would someday take over a bannorn?
