The “do you want a sandwich” line in the Hawke/Anders romance only gets better when you think of that scene as all being Varric’s speculation.

At first he thinks, “I’ve built up a really dramatic and heartfelt moment, here — what is the most romantic thing Hawke might possibly have said?”

And then he’s like, “…. shit.”

have confidence, knight-commander

what happens to Orsino at the end of Act 3 is such horrendous character assassination and it continues to tick me off three years later

but even if you hate him, this is his moment and it badass

Video Game Meme: [1/7] Female characters → Leliana


sometimes when I think about Fenris I think about the days right before Varania arrived in Kirkwall

and how guardedly hopeful he must have been that it would turn out well, that he’d be reunited with this link to his past

and I imagine him, like, slowly beginning to clean up his mansion, not anything serious, you know, nothing that Isabela or Hawke would be able to comment on if they came by

but maybe straightening up a few of the broken mirrors and torn paintings, dusting off the rickety old table and chairs in the great hall, maybe stacking the bodies neatly by the back door at last

maybe repairing the shattered window in the nicer guest bedroom, just in case

and then that morning before he goes bothering to look at himself in one of the mirrors for the first time a long time, and knowing that even if he can’t do anything about the lyrium he can at least make sure his armor is clean and polished and the leathers in as good a shape as he can get them considering how old they are, because if he can’t remember her at least he can give her a brother she’s not ashamed to be seen with

aaaaaaaaaaaand then Danarius shows up instead.

I really like the idea of putting the fate of the world into the hands of neurotic recluses.

Mages fuck yeah.

Insignificant Dragon Age things that make me happy, exhibit A: a scene from the Mages Asunder nightmare during the Broken Circle.  

Possible supporting evidence for my theory that the Circle sometimes employs normal, non-mage-or-Tranquil servants for mundane tasks like cooking and laundry, because the Templars don’t trust mages to handle their food or have access to their quarters and the Tranquil are too valuable in more complicated trades that are the Circle’s primary source of funding to be wasted on janitorial duties.

Ah, but imagine a Tranquil mage and a Chanter having a conversation. Imagine two of the most difficult types of people to have a conversation with and how frustratingly funny it must be to someone watching from the side.


this is beautiful and ilu  ;u;

but also:

imagine a Tranquil whom has at some point in their lives made a serious study of the Chant, able to understand a Chanter with crystal clarity because they have an academic’s understanding of the text a laser-focused analytical mind

sometimes I think about the fact that if you do the Circle of Magi early in a DA:O playthrough and you side with the mages, and given that the events of Origins supposedly take place over roughly the course of one year, your Warden has a Tranquil travelling with their party for probably at least six months

As people pointed out, Leliana and Josephine were missing from this drawing that I did and someone suggested they were off snogging in a corner. So yeah.


the best part of non elf friends is messing with them

afterwards solas and the inquisitor highfive like “haha man can you BELIEVE they bought that?”
