bloom and the blight

sunshinemage  asked:

Could Nin have a lil bouquet 💐 as well? Or Rinna? :3

Why not both? I love all of your children. :D

Red and yellow chrysanthemums for Nindarhmen. These flowers bloom like fireworks, and are welcomed everywhere as symbols of celebrations, good cheer and optimism. There’s also an orange variety if Nin wants to hit ‘em with that good ole Orange Overwhelm tactic. Sunflowers for vivacity in life and a symbolic pursuit of the light, as they follow the sun. Lilies of the Valley for humility and sweetness.

For Rinna, dragon lilies as a sign of inner prowess, amaranth for the immortality of the Grey Wardens’ cause and for her own resilience, poppies for remembrance of the past, and wow this is a lot of red and yellow. Uh. Gladiolus for strength of character (also red…but it has other colors…if she likes…) and allow me to throw in the fictional Dragon Age’s vandal aria, one of the very few flowers which can still bloom in Blighted lands, for Rinna’s ability to move on and rebuild after being cast out from her old clan.

I can see you beside me,
in my peripheral vision,
Always right there,
Always aware,
Of this manic depressive condition

There’s a fever burning up in me,
I’m tangled up inside a sinking feeling,
Slipping out of touch with the controls,
It’s all intrapersonal
.

Lay my head down,
Try and sleep now,
Can’t slow down my mind.

Close my eyes, try to find,
A train of thought I can hop,
Out of the mess I grew in my head,
Afraid I won’t know how to stop

And I want to know,
And I want to know,
And I want to know

Native delirium,
Are you a daughter of
This new insomnia,
My hypochondria?
Wilt me just past the bloom,
Pull up my deepest roots,
A graceful poison like
a wave of vile blight.

There’s a fever burning up in me,
I’m tangled up inside a sinking feeling,
Slipping out of touch with the controls,
It’s all intrapersonal.
