Dragon Age Confessions

CONFESSION: 

Recently I have been seeing backlash against the Iron Bull and his Chargers. Specifically about  the betrayal option in Trespasser. A lot of these people didn’t know there ways to avoid it if they saved the chargers but I have been seeing people that saying the chargers should have died and proceed to hate The Iron Bull for betraying the Inquisition. How is that fair? You killed his family. His only link outside of the Qun. To be a man, not a tool. It’s not his fault. It’s yours.            

CONFESSION: 

I have not yet finished the Tresspasser DLC for DAI. The Iron Bull (still sounds better with the article) has just betrayed me from within my own party. I am so shook. The Iron Bull and my Elf Warrior Inquisitor were always friendly, but hearing Sera’s reaction to it was even worse. I just keep replaying in my head how our friendly conversations went from ending with “boss” to him calling me “bas”…just wow…            

CONFESSION: 

possibly dumb confession, but I keep replaying the gundam seed and destiny openings and keep substituting the dragon age main characters with them, Solas x Lavellan is definitely the opening Wings of Words, especially with the line “even pessimists can fall in love and be changed” especially with Gilbert Durandal looking off reminds me of Solas and Talia Gladys obviously Lavellan in the background. Also Vestige reminds me of Inquisition characters substitute as you like xD            

CONFESSION:  

I think a lot of people forget that DA2 is being told by Varric to Cassandra. Varric, who wasn’t present for everything, and has to condense ten years of events into a day, is saying all this to a hostile audience. Character traits were exaggerated or left out as relevant to the plot, or to keep from painting his friends in a damning light. People Varric didn’t know have assumptions made about them, events he didn’t understand seem to come from nowhere. While I know the development for DA2 was wonky, I think this gives a good, in-game reason as to why the characterization of some people seems to be all over the place between different games.

CONFESSION: 

My “canon” DA heroes are all human females, either warriors or rogues. This is because I’m a human female, and I have four invisible, life-disrupting disabilities - I game on casual because I play life on hard mode. So I play these strong, courageous women who are just enough like myself that, for a little while, I can pretend I’m a normal healthy person. It really bothers me, therefore, when people put down my preferences as “unimaginative.” For me, health is a fantasy in its own right!        

MOD NOTE:  May you continue to stay strong confessor.   

CONFESSION: 

Playing DA2 for the first time. Merril doesn’t like me because I’m critical of Blood Magic. Fenris hates me because I don’t hate Mages. Isabella hates me because I don’t charge for doing things for people. Aveline hates me because I’m sarcastic and take jobs that aren’t 100% legal. Anders hates me because I pointed out being possessed is weird. The only people who like me are Beth and Varric and Bethany has just been taken by Cullen to shit!hogwarts. Varric’s my only friend now.

In case anyone missed this… its extremely epic!!

CONFESSION: 

As a Christian, I find myself disliking Andrastianism because I find it incompatible with biblical Christianity. The Maker is presented as no better than the Evanuris, demanding absolute obedience among followers while doing whatever He wants no matter how immoral they are. Non-humans are discriminated against, which contradicts its goal of spreading the faith to all races. Lastly, the Chantry uses military force to enforce the faith on everyone, which is unsurprisingly counter-productive, as it has made more bitter enemies in the long run.
