Confession:  I wish that we had the option to say that we were chosen by a god/gods/the stone in Inquisition. I like having the option to believe you were chosen, but I wish there were more options other than just Andraste. My Lavellans are just as religious as my Trevelyan. I wish they had the opportunity to say that they believed they were chosen by the Pantheon.

Critics who treat ‘adult’ as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development.

When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.
