Confession: I’m forever heartbroken Mhairi didn’t survive the Joining. She was such a promising companion! I got attached immediately, she was so passionate and cute and kind. I wish there was a mod to make sure she survives, but almost no one creates mods for DAO anymore. Or at least a mod to skip the intro of Awakening, so I don’t have to watch her be killed by her biggest dream. Poor, sweet Mhairi!
I’m torn about companion specializations. On the one hand, it makes
sense for them to be fixed so that they fit their characters. On the
other hand, I tend to prefer certain specs over others, so it can really
limit your party composition (or, at least, force you to choose, which
is less fun).
“I thought I’d love Hearthfire, but the way it ruins interesting NPCs by making them all the same makes me cringe; I wish they would let the characters have some of their past lives back. Let Vilkas return to the companions every now and then. Make their dialogues more personal. If it doesn’t suit you, then marry someone else. Hearthfire is like a very good mod - but not an expansion.“
Confession: DA:I changed my life in a lot of ways, which sounds silly because it’s a game, but more than anything else the romance with Solas made me realize how shitty my real relationship was. It was dull and also dysfunctional, just a total “safety net” situation. There was no emotional or intellectual stimulation, no common interests, no passion… Only codependency. Solas had such a unique way of looking at the world and demanded nothing of my Lavellan… it really made me think.
It got to the point where my ex even noticed I had a difference in attitude (he didn’t know it was because of the Dread Egg). I was no longer clingy, afraid, unsure… I learned to stand on my own two feet and in the end it made him leave. At first it devastated me. Then on top of that, SOLAS left me. I was so angry. I was the angriest Lavellan around. But then as I continued the game without Solas and as I completed Jaws Of Hakkon without him in my party - it dawned on me. I was my own person. I love Solas and I wish it could have ended differently, and I did choose to redeem him… but I did NOT need him.
At first I decided to “harden my heart to a cutting edge” but then, no. I am strong and independent but my heart is open, loving, and forgiving. I’m who I’m supposed to be.
I love how in Dragon Age Origins, if you choose the right path, there is so much character development from your companions. It makes you fall in love with them when you feel that they’re just like you.
Confession: Alistair is so pure. Like he picks up a rose and carries it for weeks most likely because it reminds him of the girl he thinks is beautiful. Like it’s so extra but so good too. I just really love Alistair.

Pre-ghoul Hancock is just….UGHHHHHH. So, this is my soul survivor in fallout 4. I bet ya can’t tell who my favorite companion is…My soul survivors name is Kam. Have any questions? Go ahead and ask meh!!
Here’s an honest one to break all the negativity. I love every character
I met in Dragon Age inquisition. Their flaws only make them so much
more realistic and detailed. Every time I turn on that game it’s like
I’m going to a second family. We’ve been through a lot together. The
writing is great and I appreciate everyone in their own individual ways
Honestly while I appreciated all the Companion Mods that were available for Origins, I found some of them too lore breaking to my liking and the actual party camp looked so crowded….it was ridiculous. I can picture some of the original party members looking really annoyed.
If anyone uses companion mods for Origins and has a crowded party camp…Please share some screenshots we will be happy to post or reblog them. We’ve never used these mods and I am sure there are other followers as well that would love to see what a crowded camp looks like.
