People like to talk about what great dads some of the Dragon Age companions would be, but can we acknowledge the great mom potential?
We know Morrigan is a great mom. I think the others would be too.
Leliana would be the type of mom that never have need for a music player, because she is the music player. She’d be the type of mom that continues to sing lullabies long after the kid has fallen asleep. She’d be the type of mom that would enjoy shopping for back to school clothes more than the kid. She’d be the type of mom that would want to interview the parents of every friend before scheduling a play date.
Isabela would be the type of mom that wouldn’t think she could ever be a mom until looking at her baby’s face for the first time, and realizing that it was hers to protect, and raise, and teach. She’d want to be everything her own mother wasn’t. She’d be the type of mom who when getting called into the principal’s office over a fight, ask who won. (Jokingly, of course. Well, half jokingly.) She’d be the type of mom that would tell everyone she’s a horrible one when really she’s great. She’d be the type of mom that would encourage no secrets between each other.
Merrill would be the type of mom that would read bedtime stories long past the age most parents consider “too old for such a thing.” She’d be the type of mom that regularly plans picnics in the park and camping trips in the backyard. She’d be the type of mom that would work hard to help the kid in school but never put pressure on them to do more than they can handle.
Aveline would be such a Soccer Mom™. She’d be the type of mom that would want to get involved in every single thing her kid did, including coaching the team, volunteering at school, and attending every single band concert if it takes reversing time to do it. She’d be the type of mom that would offer advice to other moms, (if they ask for it or not.) She’d be the type of mom that would be 120% prepared for any possible thing that could go wrong, and carry around a giant bag of kid supplies everywhere she went.
Josephine would be the type of mom that would play with her kid for hours, putting on little plays with their toys and doing anything to make them giggle. She’d be the type of mom that would want to capture every single giggle on camera, too, with a stack of scrapbooks that just keeps building. She’d be the type of mom that would explain in detail why what they did was wrong with every punishment.
Cassandra would be the "I’m not angry, I’m disappointed” mom. She’d be the type of mom that would encourage independence, but not without making it clear the kid can come to her for anything. She’d be the type of mom that teachers would know to be on their best behaviour when they see her coming. She’d be the type of mom to leave sticky notes around the house with not so subtle hints that their bedroom needs to be cleaned. (All signed “With love, Mommy.”)
Vivienne would be the type of mom that would constantly tell everyone how proud she is of her kid, and would frame every single achievement, from participation award to science fair winner. She’d be the type of mom to put over the top effort into school play costumes, insisting they be made by hand and not just bought from a store. She’d be the type of mom that would make sure her kid got everything they ever wanted, but not without them earning it.
Sera would be the type of mom that would never send her kid to school without cookies cut in a different shape for every day of the week. She’d be the type of mom that’d disapprove of TV and approve of imagination and books, and would always be looking on Pinterest for ideas to keep them entertained. She’d be the type of mom who would encourage messy fun, jumping in mud puddles and dancing in the rain.
