Character Prompt #3

vanguard-of-the-grey:

What weapon did your Warden take against the Archdemon? The higher-leveled ones usually have names and great strength to them. Did you take it for power or sentiment?

This might change by the time I get around to finalizing that scene in Unshaken, but right now, Rhianna tends not to get attached to longswords. (That’s the type of weapon she’ll take with her to the Battle of Denerim; she dual-wields, longsword and dagger).

D, I, Q

Thank you for the ask! :) D has already been answered. 

I: Has tumblr caused you to stop liking any fandoms, if so, which and why?

No. To be honest, I’m mostly a one-fandom-at-a-time sort of person, so I only dabble in things that aren’t Dragon Age, and I’ve not gotten into anything deeply enough to be affected by the Tumblr fandoms. I will admit that there are some fandoms I side-eye based on things I’ve seen, including one for a television show I enjoy (Sherlock), but I wouldn’t say that Tumblr ruined anything for me. It just means that I keep out of those tags (where I probably wouldn’t have gone anyway, to be honest); it doesn’t stop me from still enjoying the shows. 

Q: A ship you’ve abandoned and why.

Probably the most notable one is F!Warden/Alistair. In my earliest playthroughs, I did romance Alistair (and in one very early iteration of Rhianna, she did stay with him to become queen of Ferelden). But rather early on, I started to find Loghain the more compelling character, and as my headcanons about him started to blossom, my interest in Alistair waned. And pretty soon, it was ALL LOGHAIN ALL THE TIME. So, it wasn’t out of any disillusionment with Alistair (although I did have some of that later on; I’ve come through it, though, and Alistair and I are on good terms again, now). Just that I ended up liking Loghain better. 

Teagan and Isolde is another thing I shipped at one time, and don’t anymore (although I can see how it might work; just not with the way I envision Teagan and Isolde in my own headcanon versions of the characters).

Warden Character Prompt #1

vanguard-of-the-grey:

I find that naming the character is always the hardest part, don’t you? Need to reflect them in nature, but it also needs to fit them personally.

What’s your Wardens name? Does it have meaning or none at all? Did you give it meaning?

It used to be really easy for me. In almost every video game, ever, I would name my characters Rhianna. (I’ve been using this name for decades; I even used to write a newsletter column using Rhianna as a pseudonym). But now, Rhianna IS Rhianna Cousland, which means I can never use that name again for any other character (and I need to go back and rename some of my other characters in other ‘verses. My Hero of Kvatch can’t be Rhianna anymore, sorry, but Rhianna Cousland totally stole the name forever). :D

The name itself has two meanings It is a reference to the Celtic goddess Rhiannon, whom I mostly associate with horses. It also means “nymph.” But really, it’s just the sound of the name I’ve always loved. If I could give myself a new name, Rhianna is the one I would have chosen. 

† = How Rhianna feels about murder!

Ooh. This is an interesting question! Especially since Rhianna’s ideas about this may have to shift somewhat during the Blight.
