When it comes to being unabashedly nerdy, Arthur and Vivi take the cake, much to Lewis’ embarrassment. Vivi has no shame, and Arthur just likes to be a little shit. Poor Lewis, fresh out of high school (comparatively) and still feeling the sting of social stigma, can only plead with them to be quietercome on guys people are staring. Arthur’s excuse is he did his time in high school, what does he care what people think now? His friends like him just the way he is.
“Are you two quite done being embarrassing?”
Arthur‘s grin only widened as he caught Vivi’s eye, before he burst out loudly, “When the moon hits your eye like this big beefy guy, that’s amore~” He held his hands out to exaggeratedly showcase Lewis, who’s face was slowly turning red.
Vivi picked it up without a pause, giving Lewis a leering once over. “When dat ass moves on past makes me skip my next class, that amore!”
Hyena laughter would be an apt description for the sound that escaped the two as they cackled at their friend’s mortification. Lewis’ only defense was to put his head in his hands and pray the ground swallowed him whole.
A character meme stolen from grimsolas, done because I have far too many feelings about Minnie (and I happen to have lots of pictures of her thanks to the wonderful paperwick )
1. Origin/class/gender/age. Do you have headcanons about their origin that inquisition doesn’t cover? expand it.
Minerva Adaar, 28. In my headcanon her parents were mages who fled the Qun rather than just normal Qunari, and both her siblings are mages as well (gotta explain that arcane knowledge perk somehow!).
She was pretty sad she wasn’t a mage, but…
She dealt with it pretty well and ended up joining the Valo-Kas to earn some coin and found a group of friends there, although sometime between her joining and Inquisition, this happened…
Wyvern’s man, fking wyverns.
2. Meaning behind their name, or at least the reason why you chose it. Any would do.
I actually didn’t name her! Paperwick drew this picture of a beautifully badass Adaar
in her stream once and said I could use her, after I fangirled because how could you NOT? and she picked the name. But Minerva is just a really kick ass name, and since you can use the nickname Minnie, it stuck really well.
3. Any extra AU’s they’re involved in?
Not really, other than me trying to pretend that Carver Hawke was in Inquisition because Warden!Carver and his sibling kicking ass together is something I need in my life, and he and Minnie would make an amazing BROTP at the least.EDIT: I WILL SHIP THEM TO THE END OF TIME.
4. What nickname Varric gave them (or would if they ever met)?
Mini, I would think, I mean she’s as tall as Bull if not as broad, and her name practically asks for it, soooo
5. Favourite scent. Do they use it as a perfume? (I’m probably weird for wanting to smell your oc- I know that)
This is going to sound weird, but I think her favorite scent is that of dragon hide… and no, she wouldn’t use it as a perfume, but she likes how dragons smell… but not wyverns. She r-e-e-eeeeally hates wyverns.
6. Fighting style, preferred weapons, favourite spells. You can use all dragon age classes and specializations in da universe as long as it sticks to canon.
She’s a reaver two-handed warrior, much like Bull (mostly because that’s the only DPS oriented specialization for warriors.) I was planning to make my Adaar a mage but Paper drew her with a sword originally, so that’s what happened!
7.Sum up their personality. Diplomatic, humorous or aggressive? Do they enjoy violence? What’s their philosophy on killing.
She’s quite a diplomatic person, really, for all that she is/was a mercenary. Violence kept her in work, but she did it for the money, not due to any particular bloodthirsty-ness on her part. Given the choice she’d rather talk things through, but she isn’t exactly delicate with her wording, she treats people how she likes to be treated by default – that is with boisterous affection and an invitation of friendship, but she’s smart enough to know that many people wouldn’t feel the same – and she’s enough of a little shit to do it to people she know will dislike it if they annoy her enough.
As it is though, she’s also very humorous and joking, not in the same silly, bitingly mocking, and often tactless way of purple hawke, but far more easy going and joking. If she’s ever 100% serious you know shit is going DOWN.
8. Do they appear attractive for their own brethren? Are they’re attractive by human beauty standards?
I’m not completely sure of Qunari beauty standards, but I would think so??? I mean…
She’s pretty cute, once you get past the HUGE DISFIGURING FACIAL SCARS.
EDIT: She is a total babe I don’t know what I was smoking when I wrote that
I mean, her ridiculous height (she’s seven feet tall) and extremely muscular physique might put them off, but she’s still really fit so while I doubt she’s everyone’s cup of tea, Amazon chasers at least must find her quite attractive.
9. Place them on D&D character alignment chart.
Chaotic Good, she has an extreme need to value personal freedom that goes hand in hand with hating the Qun w/ a burning passion
10. Give me link to their inspiration/development tag. Pretty please :)
Everything about her should be tagged #Minerva Adaar or #Minnie on my blog, I don’t have a lot written down w/ her, hence doing this meme ^^
