So lest we forget that Grey Wardens aren’t allowed to meddle in politics, rendering King Alistair and Queen/King Cousland a clusterfuck.
Ha. See, this is why it’s another reason why my Warden Surana bitterly had to operate in the shadows even though he wanted to point at the kings he made and scream from the rooftop: I FUCKING DID THAT.
Because had he openly politicked, he would’ve been toasted from both sides - Weisshaupt, and eventually Fereldan royalty once their gratefulness for a secure throne wears off and they start remembering Sophia Dryden again. Or forget that he saved them, their castle, the Arl, Arl’s son and the fucking village, TEAGAN.
In the end fucking about in the shadows with only gossip involved is what allowed Lea to get further than he ever would’ve as a Grey Warden, had he tried to do it all in the open. And it was hard and insulting and humiliating work, manipulating two countries’ politics and creating “legit” fronts without ever getting to take credit for any of it.
Would you be willing to draw Yuuri being cuddly? It's all I want in life
