You know what I find really hurtful about Solavellan? That fact that when Lavellan reaches out to him in sadness, he wards her off as though his life depends on it.
Even when she is no longer reaching for him, he is guarding himself against her sadness.
But he does nothing to guard himself from her anger.
The most he does is windmill his arms the very first time she shoves him, and after that he just sticks a leg out to brace himself. But he allows her to shove him. Again and again.
He takes her physical attack with nothing but a sad expression.
But her sadness causes him to put up a panicked guard.
Basically, Solas is more afraid of allowing her to touch him in sadness than he is of allowing her to strike him in anger. I firmly believe his resolve would’ve broken if she had managed to grab him. here come the tears
You couldn’t even remember why you had started fighting. But now here you were, both of you having said thinks you hadn’t meant like that but which still did hurt.
The silence after was worse than the fight itself. After everything was said, you could only stare blankly ahead.
You didn’t want to cry. Always strong, you never had let anybody get so close to you, that they had the power to hurt you like that.
But here you were. Feeling the tears coming up, but you couldn’t stop them. Not even when Jace finally was looking back at you. He clearly saw your tears, your blank stare, but you couldn’t say what he was thinking. Not after that.
So when he started to walk over to you, you didn’t know what he actually wanted. Keep fighting? Leaving you alone?
You didn’t expect him to gently pull you into his arms.
“I’m sorry (y/n), okay? I’m sorry.” His voice wasn’t more than a whisper in your ear, but you could hear that he meant it.
“I don’t want to fight. Not with you”, you gave back and his arms tightened around you.
This is literally EVERYTHING I want out of the next Dragon Age: Inquisition DLC. Plus the gear he ran away with. Those were Tier 4 deets! Not to mention those answers he promised. And you know, a cure for the heartbreak.
Feel free to share your Lavellan’s rant to a runaway Solas! I know exactly what MINE has to say!
