Confession: I’m sort of surprised that fans of Fenris tend to refer to him by that name - the name Danarius gave him - instead of his actual name: Leto. If your Hawke cares about him, don’t you want to do him the honor of calling him by his real name?
Confession: The first time I played Mark of the Assassin I had Fenris and Anders with me. I about fell off the couch at them arguing about how they were going to save me. Something about their rivalry makes me bring them along all the time, because they’re so similar and dedicated to Hawke, yet they hate each other the whole way. It makes me laugh.
Confession: Because of Dragon Age, I have an elf obsession. It’s said that I can’t bring myself to romance anyone other than Zevran and Fenris. I try but then I just feel so.. empty without my elf loving.
Confession: I always assumed that elves didn’t label love the same way humans did. Which is why Fenris, Merrill, Zevran and even Tallis can be romanced regardless of gender. It always confused me when people complain about the “bisexuality” of the characters.
Confession: I wish your companions did more if you choose to give Fenris back to Denarius. I don’t care that Hawke’s the leader, I just can’t see anyone other than Anders being okay with handing over someone they’ve known for six years to a man who enslaved and sexually abused him, regardless of whether they’re friends with him or not. Losing approval doesn’t seem enough, I wish they’d argue more or even fight to prevent it. I hate Anders for his attitude in Alone more than anything else he does.
Confession: Every girl I know that plays DA2 calls Fenris their ‘favorite elf’… I don’t understand why everyone loves him so much! I mean, I like him and I’ve romanced him before but and stuff but there’s a certain elf I love more than him… Tallis. She’s definitely my favorite romance option even though it only lasts for a little while.
Confession: For a long time (even though he’s beautiful, interesting, totally my type, and has a great voice-actor), I couldn’t stand Fenris. It was only recently, thinking about my own experiences with PTSD, that I began to understand him a little. I don’t support his anti-mage sentiments or actions, but I can understand not trusting a particular type of person because your formative experiences showed you that they are all monsters.
Confession: When I first realized I’m bi I was too scared to tell anyone - I thought people would accuse me of lying or wanting attention. Then I played DA2 and loved it. I saw that the four bi LIs were accepted, so I played a bi Hawke. I had a little fantasy life inside my PS3 where I flirted with everyone at first because I could, and then nobody told me I was “really straight” when I picked Fenris. I’ve since come out to my friends, but I wouldn’t have been able to without the encouragement DA2 gave me.
