dragon age: awakening

CONFESSION: 

This might be an unpopular opinion but a lot of people don’t like Anders in Dragon Age 2 but might still like Awakening Anders. I’ve seen them blame Anders himself for the change in character and talk about what’s went on with him as if it’s his fault, but the way I see it, is that it’s almost completely and utterly Justice’s fault. Justice being exposed to the real world over time caused him to corrupt into vengeance and as much as Anders had good intentions, it wasn’t his fault at all.
