A song to help vailyx feel better. A Dalish take on Noble Maiden Fair from Disney’s Brave (as suggested by uhtsceatha). Lyrics and singing by me, credit to Project Elvhen for most of the vocabulary.

Ma fenor da’len, mya ma’lah
Ghi’lemah na, ina’lan’ehn da’asha.
Var da’adahl, felgaras i ithas
Na’arla, var elvhenan.

Ghilan’nain, ghilai var shiral.
Ar’an erir vegara anor ena’sal.
Fenor da’len, var da’adahl,
Ina’lan’ehn da’asha.

My precious child, follow my voice
I will guide you, oh beautiful girl
Our little tree, grow and see
Your home, the land and heart of the People.

Ghilan’nain, guide our journey.
We dream to return to a nation of triumphant joy.
Precious child, our little tree,
Beautiful girl.

The first sound out of Varric’s mouth wasn’t even a sigh.  No, it was, “I don’t want to know, do I?” 

“I have no idea what you’re talking about,” Eppie sniffed.  Varric’s expression didn’t change.  Didn’t budge.  Didn’t even waver.  And, Maker’s blood, he was actually arching an eyebrow!  At her!  Varric! Eyebrow!

“I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure you didn’t show up with that thing.”

“That thing” happened to be draped around her shoulders at that moment.  It also happened to be keeping her neck particularly warm, a plus when one’s secret (all right, not so secret, as it turned out) stronghold was located in the frozen-middle-of-bloody-nowhere.  

“Don’t call him that,” she admonished.  "He has a name.

“Oh.  A name.”  Varric chuckled.  “This should be good.”

The fennec that was, at that moment, curled contently around her neck, lifted its head and folded its ears back, sending Varric a look of displeasure so dour, even Eppie had to laugh.  “He’s quite ridiculous,” she said, reaching up to scratch the little beast behind its ears.  The animal’s eyes shut in contentment as it leaned into her hand, trilling softly.

“Ridiculous is a good word,” Varric offered, nodding.  “Disturbing’s another.  Also, creepily familiar.”


“Nothing.  So, a name?”

“Fenny,” she announced, grinning proudly as the fox nuzzled her chin.

A beat of silence passed.  “Fenny,” Varric said evenly.

“Because he’s a fennec,” she explained.  "Fenny Fennec?  Cute, right?“

“Not your best work, Hawke.”

“Hmph.  And I suppose you could do better?”

His lips twitched back a smile.  “Nah.  No, this one can be all yours, Hawke.”

So let me get this straight (x):

  • Marvel didn’t want the Clint farm storyline, but Whedon insisted they leave it in the movie. In exchange, he cut much of Thor’s vision subplot, which made very little sense as a result.
  • Whedon really wanted a BruceNat relationship after writing the Hut scene in the Avengers. You know, the scene where she’s terrified of Bruce.
  • Whedon fought against a Clint/Natasha relationship, even thought it was planned, for no fucking reason.
  • Whedon wrote a scene where Natasha is rejected by Banner after offering to run away with him, and originally planned the bedroom moment to be a scene where her flirting turns him into the Hulk?

And then he laments the fact he didn’t have enough time so the plot seemed rushed. Even though he spent like 30+ minutes at the farm, and building up BruceNat, and everything the executives wanted to cut for the movie to run smoothly and make sense.

I just… what the fuck, Whedon??? The film could have had a completely different vibe.
