I was tagged by @drellvhen and they’re right, I haven’t done an OTP round for Myriani and Alistair. So let’s do that!

Tagging @fourletterepithet , @honeypunks , @merilsell , and @apostatetabris (if anyone’s already done this, feel free to ignore it lol. this is my 3rd round and i can definitely keep going!)

So, Myri and Al (unfortunately I have no couples art of them yet) are my Blight Babies that are deeply in love but also comfortably open in their marriage. Here are a few songs that make me think of them!

In the Middle - dodie

I said, “It could be weird but I think I’m into it”
You know I’m one for the overly passionate
I like you, and I loved him
We could all be the best kind of friends

I’m sure this song is about a threesome, and that’s not at all part of Myri and Al’s relationship. Their auxiliary partners are totally separate and though they may talk to each other about their side piece(s), no one’s meeting anyone else usually. What I do like about this song if how positively it presents a nonconventional relationship! Sure, it’s weird to most people, but it works for them. Especially with the distance!

Teleport A & B - The Spill Canvas

Constantly you’re working through the mileage in my head
Oh, I’m calculating, yes I’m sick of waiting
How many hours left until I reach your bed?

But no, I’m not a skeptic anymore
At last, I see what all of this ridiculous hard work is for
The moisture in the air is begging for release
And the memory of your stare is raining down on me

THEY MISS EACH OTHER. All the time. Constantly. She’s in Ferelden and he’s in Orlais - they visit each other two, three times a year? It’s not enough, but it’s part of their duty. Every time they part, they’re counting down the days until they meet again. If only Myri could get that teleportation spell working.

Shallow - Lady Gaga + Bradley Cooper

Tell me somethin’ girl
Are you happy in this modern world?
Or do you need more
Is there somethin’ else you’re searchin’ for?

Tell me something boy
Aren’t you tired tryin’ to fill that void?
Or do you need more
Ain’t it hard keepin’ it so hardcore?

I’m fallin’
In all the good times
I find myself longing for change
And in the bad times I fear myself

I’m off the deep end
Watch as I dive in
I’ll never meet the ground
Crash through the surface
Where they can’t hurt us
We’re far from the shallow now

I just happen to stumble on this song and from the first listen it made me think of Myri and Al. To me it’s about two people finding that “more” in each other, especially through bad times. Nothing about their relationship can be shallow. After Ostagar, there’s no such thing as small talk.

Is that Alright? - Lady Gaga

And I know your story, but tell me again
Nothing you say wouldn’t interest me
All of your words are like poems to me
I would be honored if you would take me as I am
I want you to look right in my eyes
To tell me you love me
To be by my side
I want you at the end of my life
I wanna see your face when I fall with grace
At the moment I die
Is that alright?

Another unexpected one! Can you tell I found the A Star is Born soundtrack?

I think this one is great for any Grey Warden, especially a pair of them. The Calling will come for all of them, and if they’re lucky they’ll go into the Deep Roads together, one last time. This song just seems like such a lovely reflection of a life lived in that comfortable, glowing warmth that familiarity breeds. “I know your story, but tell me again.” Just… ugh, idk it’s so romantic to me. I’ll stop blathering because I’m already one song over.

Beyoncé, Adele, Rihanna, and Lady Gaga are expected to drop an album in 2019….. which means they’re all eligible for the 2020 Grammys…

It’s LITERALLY the 2017 Grammys all over again
