My best friend wrote an absolutely amazing epic adoribull Inception AU for the minibang, and she put so much work and heart into that thing, and it totally wrecked my butt on top of putting all my faves in very attractive modern fashion, so it was obvious I had to draw some of them in the setting. And since today is her birthday(!!!!), I decided to to a take on the Inception cover art with some of the cast of the fic. :D  I love you, Riss!! Happy birthday!! I hope this makes you smile!

A reminder that @lilyvonk is an AMAZING artist and you should totally follow her art blog. This was a commissioned piece she did for me of my Dalish Inquisitor Avrinne together with Iron Bull (my OTP~). She took my crappy little “this is what I kinda want” thumbnail sketch and turned out something I want to hang over my freakin’ fireplace. I wanted symbolism and emotion– and she delivered in SPADES. (Bull’s FACE omg that look SO BEAUTIFUL.) 

Frig, do I ever love Dragon Age. XD

Noliari “Noli” Lavellan is what I’d describe as “aggressively Dalish”… and she isn’t about to let Solas forget it

Also, tea is the best post-prank drink to rub it in

(EDIT: BTW, yes, the vallaslin used to be slave markings and it’s what Solas knows them as - but here’s the thing… unless you’re in a romance with him, he NEVER MENTIONS THIS. Even if your Lavellan is BFF with him he keeps that to himself. This Lavellan isn’t romanced with Solas so in her eyes she’s just giving him Dalish markings as a prank, she’d not purposefully paint slave markings on some one)
