Confession: I love how Dragon Age is teaching me to roleplay like I wasn’t able to before. Like, the fact that my Hawke agrees with Anders and actually approves of what he did, with Hawke being sick of the Circle and the Chantry, and all they’ve done to their loved ones. That doesn’t mean my Inquisitor has to approve. Not the slightest.

CONFESSION: 

I felt more betrayed by Orsino using blood magic than by Anders blowing up the chantry

CONFESSION: Im actually embarassed to admit that it took me 10 playthroughs of both Origins and 2 (I never got Awakening) to realize it was possible to switch control between team members. For the longest time, I thought you only got to control other team members during specific quests.

CONFESSION: 

Alistair’s romance, aside from being my favorite Bioware romance next to Shepard/Garrus, is the most personal to me. Being in my twenties, I tend to be ashamed to admit that I am a virgin in this day and age, a situation that does not look like it will change in the near future. But then there is Alistair. He doesn’t let his lack of experience shame him, much less discourage him from taking a lover, and I shouldn’t, as well.

CONFESSION: 

When it comes to the quest “The Long Road,” Aveline is pretty much my twin. Being attracted to someone but being so tightly grasped by paralyzing fear you can’t say/do anything absolutely sucks. Then if/when you’re alone with said person, you’re always bumbling and having the most awkward conversations. I identify with Aveline so much in this quest, and I can’t help but get defensive of her when the others say how “easy” it is to just say something. She’s right. They don’t get it.

CONFESSION: I find it disturbing my Warden finds it acceptable to dig around piles of filth and fleshy sacks

Confession: Just like the confession about Dean being a good Alistair, I find that the one that plays Jason Stackhouse in True Blood would ALSO be a good candidate for a live action movie version of Alistair! :D

Confession: I read through the Dragon Age confessions ALL the time and it suddenly occurred to me one day: what if Flemeth and Morrigan are already the same person when you meet them? She can be in multiple places at the same time, right? What if the new Old God Baby is an upcoming host for the future? Please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, but now that I’ve thought it, I can’t unthink it.

Confession: On my first playthrough I’d missed Sten and Leliana. On the second, I found it hard to get approval from him, and on the third - I read the wiki and made him my best bud. On this playthrough however, I decided to just let my Warden be her tantrum throwing self - she argued with him and generally acted compassionate but untactically curious and childish in my honest opinion. He ended up getting approval from these convos, and I have no regrets about this RP based decision in my playthrough.

Confession: I’m replaying DA2 again and playing as an entirely different character. He’s completely opposite my normal character and, for the first time ever his voice doesn’t seem to fit with his character/looks anymore.  It’s jarring and strange.
