Confession: I don’t know if I’m the only person who feels this way, but by the end of DA2 I feel Anders’ experience with Justice/Vengeance is a bit like Fenris’ when Fenris was still a slave under Danarius. I’ve seen some people say that since Anders asked to join with J/V or that Fenris asked for the tattoo then they should be held responsible for their own actions, but I think the fact that they have to resort ask for something like proves how fucked up the situation is. And I’ve seen people saying it’s Anders’ own fault for blowing up the Chantry because his eyes were not glowing when he asked Hawke to assist him. But I feel that’s just like Fenris killing the group of fog warriors he was with even after being free from Danarius for several months. They are both not in total control of their own body/mind. I just feel that they are really more alike then they think.
Confession: I never really understand how the Eluvian was supposed to work. Would it just show images of the ancient elves and leave it up to Merrill to figure it out? Would it talk? Would it pull a Gate of Truth from FMA and just shove all the knowledge into her head?
Confession: I hate how static the companions are with each other. Their relationships with the Warden or Hawke grow and change based on your interaction with them, but their relationships with each other stay the same. I know it’d be hard to code and harder to write, but I’d love to see friendships form based on how often you use them together.
Confession: Everybody has the right to invent whatever headcanons they like and I wouldn’t ever take that away even if I could, Headcanons like the Warden curing the taint/never going on their Calling or having a child with Alistair bug me. While obviously I’m no warden, the taint is similar to some of my RL problems and I find inspiration in knowing that even if my warden’s life is short and difficult and childless, she can still find joy and the strength to keep living whatever time she has left.
Confession: I absolutely adore the visual concept of Dragon Age 2. It corresponds completely with what I think is beautiful. I love all the character designs(redesigns too), the environments, the colours, the forms, every tiny detail like portraits or plants. So I always make sure to explore as much as possible just to enjoy the view. Now I know The Inquisition will look awesome, but I’ll definitely miss the DA2’s style.
