Another productive day for the inquisition. 


Ive had a very long two weeks but i’ve been slowly chipping away at this and im so happy i can finally say it’s finished :)

Dragon Age Headcanons: Favorite Movies

Alistair: Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975) - Alistair wishes being king was half as fun as this movie. Alistair is a simple man. He doesn’t want to overthink his movies. He wants to see silly French knights throw cows over the walls of a castle.

Leliana: The Passion of Joan of Arc (1928) - It’s French. It’s silent. And Leliana is fucking pretentious. But it is beautiful and moving and a masterpiece. Watching it fills her heart with the same unnamed emotion she felt when she saw the rose bloom in the Chantry garden.

Morrigan: The Wicker Man (1973) - It’s frightening how Morrigan simply nods along, like, “Yes, this is exactly how one would go about ensuring a bountiful harvest.” (Though she won’t touch the Nicholas Cage remake with a 10-foot pole)

Zevran: Caligula (1979) - Zevran states that it is a historical drama. He lies. It is porn. Also, it stars Helen Mirren, whom many fancast as Wynne. Her bosoms are just as magical as Zevran imagined.

Anders: One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975) - Rebelling against authority and looking badass while doing it? Yes, of course this is Anders’ favorite movie. Hawke has to stop it before it gets to the end, though, otherwise there are tears.

Merrill: Coraline (2009) - Everybody laughs because of course Merrill’s favorite movie is some magical bullshit cartoon. Then they sit down and watch it and have nightmares for weeks, while Merrill eats popcorn, happy as a clam.

Sebastian: Sister Act (1992) - Sebastian identifies with Whoopi Goldberg’s character on some level, but what he loves most about the movie is the camaraderie between the sisters. The Chantry was his first real home, so watching it gives him all these warm fuzzies. Plus, Sebastian laughs at every stupid joke Hawke says, so I think he’d enjoy a silly, lighthearted comedy.

Varric: The Usual Suspects (1995) - Varric may or may not have taken his cue from Kevin Spacey’s Verbal Kint when telling the Champion’s story to Cassandra.

Cassandra: Twilight (2008) - Now that you know this about her, she can’t let you live.

Cole: Inside Out (2015) - The first time Cole sees this movie, he just lets out a little “Oh.” Sadness is important.

Sera: Home Alone (1990) - Sera has been banned from ever watching this movie again. It gives her ideas.

The Iron Bull: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) - Of course Bull loves the action sequences. Did you see those guys swinging from the poles? That’s badass. But it’s the theme that gets him- “We Are Not Things.” Sometimes Bull needs to be reminded that he is not a thing, or a weapon.

Confession:  My biggest frustration is that a lot of the brilliance of Dragon Age 2 continues to go unacknowledged.
The unreliable narrator, the depth Bioware tried to get into with Hawke’s character, and the fact that things fall apart some times, no matter what you do. Sometimes the biggest win is getting through the day.
These are amazing things for a video game, and I hope Bioware revisits them.
