Confession: It has always surprised me, that people didn’t see it coming, that Anders would bomb the Chantry. He asks for Sela Petrae, which is a Nitratine and can be used to build bombs. Maybe it was the Chemist in me, but all things considered I always found it evidently. Sadly this also made the ending a bit unspectacular for me.

Confession: In My second playthrough as a mage, I decided to be a bloodmage just to see how it would effect the game; the answer, hilariously, is not at all. And so began the crusade of irony, where I befriended Anders (who I hate and normally try to talk to/deal with as little as possible), Tried to side with Meredith whenever possible, but still always took the opportunity to say “hey, all mages aren’t like that!” and then promptly summon a demon to defeat all my foes. (“Hey, I said not ALL mages!”)

Confession: I always romance Isabela in DA2. ‘Cos Anders and Fenris are both deeply troubled men and Merrill is just too innocent. Romancing them feels like taking advantage of them.

Confession: It confuses me that Anders says the Tevinter Magisters are the only people to ever research “separating a demon from it’s host instead of just cutting off the head”. In Origins, to get the demon out of Connor, you entered the fade, and sure it was a big ritual, probably not something Anders could have gotten done easily, but none of the mages involved treated it like anything new or unheard of or secret.

Confession: I always wondered, why Bioware don’t let me kill Sebastian at the end of Dragon Age 2, I mean why they leave me kill Anders but not a person who menace me and kill me ,and destroy and entire city? I kept waiting for an option to let me stick a knife in his back.

Confession: I think it’s kind of silly how people complain about Anders “not being a Spirit Healer” in Dragon Age 2, and how there’s even a mod to give him that game’s version of the specialization…when the Panacea branch of his unique specialization IS LITERALLY DRAGON AGE 2’S SPIRIT HEALER TREE. Without the Passives, sure, but really? Does it matter THAT much?

Confession: I don’t understand why people always judge Anders because he has joined with a spirit and completely ignore the fact that Wynne and Merrill have done the EXACT same thing.

Confession: I really like Anders as a character, but I find his romance underwhelming. He lives for the cause so much I feel like he has no passion left for his personal relationships. He doesn’t even kiss you after you stay by his side when he blows up the chantry!

Confession: When I was first introduced to Anders in Awakening, new mage with a healing specialty, cool. I also wanted to toy around with the specializations I didn’t do in Origins, so Anders learned Blood Magic. The first “red flag” to his character was when I talked to him about apostates and how they’re hunted because Templars fear they’ll become malificarum, Anders seemed a little too happy in acknowledging that he was now a Blood Mage.

Confession: I don’t have the heart to tell my friends that my love for Dragon Age has all but completely faded away, only a few characters and ships tether me to fandom. A good thing as they can still ramble about Anders and I’d genuinely be interested rather than having to pretend. But usually those aren’t enough to keep me in a fandom as I still love characters in past fandoms. The main reason I stay is because I love these friends of mine.
