Do you think maybe doing a LI companions learning that the Inquisitor loves children and wants like eight or some other ridiculous number one day?
Cassandra: Huffs and gives the Inquisitor a stern glance. “I hope you’re not expecting me to bear them, then.” She doesn’t mind the idea of having children, but Maker…that would hurt. She would definitely consider adopting, however, but perhaps not that many…
Blackwall: Is initially surprised, and obviously quite intimidated. But after the initial shock wears off, he is rather touched by the idea. He has the image of his Inquisitor and him together in a house by a lake or small village with many children running around them. He would definitely be open to the idea, and would be happy to have as many children as his Inquisitor desires, once everything is done.
Sera: Is also a bit shocked, but then grins and gets rather excited by the idea. “We’ll make our own little crew, yeah? Train ‘em up right and good, and send ‘em sneakin’ into some noble’s place to filch their privates, ha!” She would like the idea of having heaps of children around, having one big family so that nobody would ever be lonely.
Iron Bull: Chuckles at the thought, but is strangely charmed by it. “You really want that many, kadan? I’m on board if you are.” To him, it is natural, after all. A Tamassran would take care of multiple children, he remembered the joys of growing up with many other children, so of course he’d want that, too.
Dorian: Laughs immediately. “Oh, amatus, one would think that after this Inquisition business, you’d want to live a quiet, peaceful life! Always one to defy expectations, aren’t you?” He would be a bit unsure of having so many children, as he has his own insecurities about his ability to be a good parent, but when he sees his amatus playing with a child, those doubts vanish and he is convinced that it is a wonderful idea.
Josephine: Has to fan herself with her hand for a moment. “Oh…oh my, that’s quite a lot, isn’t it? Are you sure you want that many? It will be a lot of work…” She does some research immediately, and tries to question various parents she sees in Skyhold about the stresses of a large family. She would take some time to come around to the idea, as it is quite intimidating, but she would eventually fall in love with the thought of having so many children with her Inquisitor.
Cullen: His eyes widen. “You want how many?” He sighs, and pinches the bridge of his nose. “Maker…” The thought naturally intimidates him, as he always thought that his family had been large enough, let alone having eight children. Once he had a little bit more experience with children, and after the Inquisition business was settling down, he would be much more open to the idea, and would find himself imagining it quite often. He’s been a commander, and he knows that he could handle it.
Solas: No. No. In no world would he want that many children. Even if there wasn’t the tiny, teensy issue of him wanting to take down all of Thedas, he would still never be comfortable with being responsible for so many children. One or two is the most he could extend himself to, but not so many. But he would let his vhenan know this gently, and tries to ignore the niggling thought in the back of his mind telling him that there will never be any children, let alone eight.
