A silly little doodle. I realized that I haven’t given much love to Anders (or Fenris, or Sebastian… I’m a little selfish in my affection for the ladies of DA2).

Just shenanigans and more DA3 cameo desires.

I imagine that the pirate queen often has these qualms of ginger conscience.

Some silliness…the text of which was taken from a brief exchange with Impressioniste (after her rather serious and thoughtful post about Merrill), with crude doodles to illustrate what I imagine to be a common occurrence during a Kirkwall winter.

I pondered waiting to post this, but I was seeing a lot of DA2 feels on Tumblr this evening - from joyful squeeing to wistful lamenting.
I took liberties with this crude imagined conversation - it may not be true to the voice of either, but I think (and hope) that the sentiment rings true.

In an idle moment between sips of coffee, I got to wondering - if grilled by Cassandra, how would the other companions react or reply? Specifically, how would they answer the question “Where is the Champion?”

And so, a crude, hasty sketch. Clearly, I may require a second cup of java before engaging in such romps.

Some dialogue in Mark of the Assassin gave us a perfectly legitimate reason for why visits to good ol’ Uncle Gamlen were often few and far between.
(And yes, I may have taken some liberty with Hawke’s line of deflection, but it amused me to think that it might be part of Gamlen’s litany of sweet nothings.)

I keep seeing DA2 compared to a dating sim/game. And while I find that a preposterous notion, in the interest of pure silliness, I thought that I’d doodle out what that entertainment might look like:

(And I have heard that certain pirate queens are fond of such cozy first dates.)

Everyone seems to want something from the next new thing in the Dragon Age-verse - be it a desire, a hope, or a must-have. But lately I have seen a lot of “they must include this, or else, because it’s what *I* want and what *I* think should be included (in my most supreme knowledgeable opinion as someone who has played every Bioware game, played RPGs since their inception, immersed myself in all things sword, sorcery, etc. and so forth).” And yes, that might be a broad, cumulative generalization there.
All in all, opinions are fine. I might have some of my own, as a matter of fact. But I figured Merrill might sum the whole matter up best.
Perhaps, in the most ideal of ideal scenarios, folks can agree that it should all come down to having a good story. And stories are quite good when they can be shared and discussed by many people, as opposed to just one.
