gif: the princess bride


favourite tropes + THE PRINCESS AND THE PIRATE

She’s a princess and he’s a pirate. Maybe he’s less of the parrot and pegleg variety, and just a rebel, or a thief. Maybe she’s not Disney so much as a Rebellious Princess. Heck, maybe she’s not even a princess, but an upper class gal.

Solavellan Princess Bride
  • Solas *disguised under a wolf pelt in his ceremonial armor*: Rest, Herald.
  • Lavellan: I know who you are. Your cruelty reveals everything. You're the Dread Wolf, Fen'harel, admit it!
  • Solas: With pride. What can I do for you?
  • Lavellan: You can die slowly, cut into a thousand pieces.
  • Solas: Hardly complimentary, Inquisitor. Why loose your venom on me?
  • Lavellan: You killed my love.
  • Solas: It's possible, I kill a lot of people. Who was this love of yours? Another prince like this one? Ugly and rich and scabby?
  • Lavellan: No. An apostate, poor...poor and perfect. With eyes like the sea after a storm. On the high seas your ship attacked. The Dread Wolf, Fen'harel never takes prisoners.
  • Solas: I can't afford to make exceptions. I mean once word leaks out that a rebel god has gone soft, people will begin to disobey you and it's nothing but work work work, all the time.
  • Lavellan: You mock my pain!
  • Solas: Life is pain, Inquisitor! Anyone who says differently is selling something....
  • Solas: I remember this apostate of yours, I think. This would be what? Two years ago? Does it bother you to hear?
  • Lavellan: Nothing you can say will upset me.
  • Solas: He died well. That should please you. No bribe attempts or blubbering, simply said "please, please I need to live." 'Twas the please that caught my memory. I asked him what was so important for him. "True love," he replied. And then he spoke of a girl of surpassing beauty and faithfulness, I can only assume that he meant you. You should bless me for destroying him before he found out what you really are.
  • Lavellan: And what am I?
  • Solas: Faithfulness he talked of, herald! Enduring faithfulness. Now tell me truly, when you found out he was gone, did you wait to get engaged to your prince a whole hour or week out of respect of the dead?
  • Lavellan: You mocked me once, never do it again! I died that day! You can die too for all I care! *pushes Solas down the hill*
  • Solas: *as he rolling down the hill* Maaaaaaaaa nuuuuuuveeeeeeeniiiiiin!
  • Lavellan: Oh my sweet Solas, what have I done? *throws herself down the hill after Solas*
