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. 

*sneakily posts giveaway post on monday evening*

Some of you might remember that I said I was thinking about doing a romance type of giveaway for my last milestone and 1 year anniversary of this blog. Of course life got in the way and I completely forgot! But it’s here now:

The art nouveau couple painting giveaway!*

The prize: a painting in the style like the ones above! You can choose any couple you want (doesn’t have to be Dragon Age specific!), and you can also specify the flowers, colour scheme, background, title, if you like, or leave it up to me.


The rules: reblogs/ likes count as entries (no limit), you have to be following me (obviously new followers are welcome as well), no giveaway blogs.

(And by following me I mean either this blog, my personal blog or my art blog, any one of them.)


The winner: will be chosen randomly, by a number generator, and I will contact them within 24 hours of the giveaway ending. Please make sure you have your ask/ submit/ message open, one of three will be fine, but if I have no way to contact you I will have to choose another winner.

End Date: 1st Oct. 2016 (midnight, CEST)

I realise these kind of paintings are kind of a very specific thing, so I apologize if you would have liked to see another kind of prize, I just really want to do more of these! (I am working on a zevran/ warden one, maybe I’ll add it as an example to this post once it’s done!)

As this is such a specific prize, I don’t expect a large response, so for now there is just one prize, but if it does become popular I’ll add another, just to make it fair!


* Should’ve thought of a catchier title…

question: what does the kirkwall crew do when hawke isnt around? obvious answers are like “avoid each other” and “fen holds his cards games” but i have a better solution: freelance problem solvers

one time seb volunteered himself, fenris and anders to clear a “ghost” from an old lady’s attic. ghost turned out to be a rage demon. seb let them both split the coin. anders had to buy a new stave, since the demon ate his.

Today’s da2 mod rec is Unique Face Textures for Companions by Ellise!

Unique Face Textures for Companions gives all of your companions, iconic Hawke, and Cassandra better, HD, complexions, making them look more realistic than the background characters. Optional files also allow for using the textures in the CC, and changing the eyecolors of Bethany and Garrett. Unfortunately, this mod replaces all of the HAwke families with the iconic families, so if you’re not using default Hawke, you will want to delete the family folder and replace it with this mod, which does the same thing but without the whitewashing aspect.

Ellise was also generous enough to make the assets are free to use, allowing other modders to create custom morphs with the textures. Plays best with @hawkethority‘s Brown Merrill HD and @quenched-steel-modding‘s High Res Custom Hawke Families

soooo thedosian lore talks abt a people who used to trade with the anderfels, who they called the Voshai. but then they suddenly stopped, but that they recently returned and were talking about a “cataclysm” that majorly effected their lands

and malcolm refuses to tell leandra and the kids where he’s from, just that it was something terrible.

is it possible Malcolm could be Voshai? like. It could also be sometjing just headcanoned but like, is it possible?

How did I get myself into all of this mess?
How did I end up with this deadly home address?
How did I come to this, where every song I sing
Is nothing but a list of pain and suffering?

We never will forget, and no, we will not forgive
We fought hard not to die, yet we don’t know how to live
How do we change our world to what we want it to be?
How do we move beyond all of this misery?

One foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one…

I’ve been in chains since I was nothing but a kid
We don’t know freedom, not quite sure that we ever did
Now that we have it, how will we make use of it?
We’ve been committed — now to what do we all commit?

I used to have a home, now I don’t even have a name
I’m nothing but a number, here we are all the same
We’ve lost so much, so many of those we love are dead
How do I get these memories out of my fucking head?

One foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one…

How do we bear this burden, far too much to carry?
How do we change our prison to a sanctuary?
We’ve been kept from the light, no one ever gave a damn
If I’ve no one to fight, how do I know who I am?

One foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one foot in front of the other foot
In front of the one…

We waged a war with Hell, and look, we still survive
But just because we live does not mean that we’re alive
We’ve won the final round, but how to enjoy the win
When we’ve been broken down and we’ll never know what could have been
Heaven help us, where do we begin? (x)

Я у мамы немношк Хавка с:
Газпром прям, наконец-то!
Осталось сделать открывашку, которая посох, и надеяться, что возьмут!
