Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake [x]

Ghost Dogs of Moon Lake is just so inspiring visually. You have the spooky woods, the rustic cabin, the serene lake, and the elegant speakeasy. This outfit inspired by this game combines most of those elements. A ribbon and lace trimmed cardigan pairs perfectly with a simple collared blouse, white jeans, a laser-cut bag, and crochet oxfords. Paw print earrings, a key necklace, an art deco necklace, a bird ring, a paw print ring, and a gold leaf headband complete the look.

Warnings: None, mild cursing, Dick being a troll.

Words: ~2,000


Fuck, Wally thinks as his eyes follow the sway of Robin’s hips across the room. That’s my best friend.

‘That’s also your single best friend,’ the annoying voice in his head adds. ‘Your single, gay, and cross-dressing best friend.’

He’d never actually thought he’d ever throw those words together into one sentence.

I’ve been tagged in so many of these that it took me a while to think of good Aerys-like answers! I got tagged by:


1.) Someone they look up to?

Aerys grew up with stories of Garahel the Grey Warden. As a kid, she’d gather around the storyteller hahren’s campfire with all the other children to hear the tale of how one of the People stood brave and true against the Blight and its wretched Archdemon. Apparently, it was that same hahren who gifted her his own copy of the story since she seemed the most interested in it. To this day, she still carries the old and very worn out book in her satchel as she goes out on missions and would occasionally read it while resting in camp.

2.) Are they an early bird or a night owl? What is their morning routine?

She’s a night owl. Her nightly regimen consists of saying good night to every single one of her friends then drinking a hot cup of milk as she bathes in her bathtub. After that, she brushes and applies an assortment of flower oils to nourish her hair (because it is the only physical trait she’s proud of as it boosts her self-confidence) and finally jumps in the fluffy human bed while squeezing and putting her arms around her bald, elven hot water bottle <3 if they can actually fall sleep hehehehe ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

In the mornings, she’s usually the one who sleeps in and steals all the blankets. She never misses breakfast, though.

3.) What are their best/worst traits?

Best: her kind and gentle heart, her deep love for the simple things in life, her desire to learn, her singing voice, her determination, her organizing skills, her cheerful disposition, her truthfulness, and her unwavering loyalty.

Worst: Definitely her stubbornness (so stubborn to an extent that one time, she kept using the mark to seal all of the rifts in the Hinterlands regardless of her companions’ advice to stop and rest which resulted in her passing out from exhaustion and pain). Her fear of making mistakes (ie. perfectionist), and her 0 skills in cooking (she tends to experiment way too much).


What is one thing your OC does to relax after a particularly taxing day?

Either she stays in a hot bathtub for an hour and let all the stress soak away or she sits under a tree in the courtyard and read. Sometimes someone joins her and sometimes she is alone. Either way, that’s her main R&R.

What did your OC do for their last birthday?

Everyone got her something (which I’m too lazy to think about tbh) but I’m sure that the bday party was held in a place no noble or dignitary can find them and that there was a whole lot of cake. However, despite the overabundance of confections dedicated to her, she decided to bake a cake for herself despite everyone’s protests and made them all eat it. Dorian had the best reaction with Viv a close second. She’s Dalish, what do they expect? I don’t think the Dalish do cakes.

What is your OC’s idea of a perfect date?

Nothing too fancy…but a date under the rain would be nice. She’d love a date where nothing else matters and that she and her lover could laugh freely, dance freely, run freely and just be “them” without a care in the world for once, y’know?


What’s your OC’s favorite pass time? (alone/with friends or loved one).

favorite pastime = R&R which I’ve sort of answered already. Not included in the past answer: Talking magic and everything else with bff Dorian, helping cole help heal the hurts (like his partner in crime or something), releasing Dennet’s charges once in a while because she likes seeing the poor man run after them, fangirling/giving book recommendations to Cass, making Sera try her baked goods before giving it to everyone else, etc. etc. etc.

Do they have any item that is special to them? (and why is it special! :D).

OH OH OH! Her late mother’s gold and emerald leaf trimmed headband that was given to her by her older brother before she was handed over as First to clan Lavellan, thus separating the two siblings. She keeps it for him since she remembers little to nothing about their parents. During halamshiral, she was adamant in her decision to use it as an accessory despite Vivienne’s attempts to persuade her to choose more fashionable and less “elven” choices. 

(I’ll draw it better and more detailed next time :P)

What’s the gift they want to get/have, but would never ask for?

She wants a family. In my playthrough, clan Lavellan got killed off and although she and her clan never really saw eye to eye due to her open mindedness about the shems and the world (kind of like how Merrill was treated by her clan), she mourned for their deaths. It made her worry that were the Inquisition be forced to disband, then she’d have nowhere and nobody to go to. Little did she know that throughout the course of the year, she’s already found her family and gained a vhenan, too. (BUT HE LEAVES AND SHE TAKES IT HARD)


1.) What was your inquisitor like as a child?
2.) What was their first impression of each of their companions and/or advisers?
3.) If they were living in a modern au, what job would they have and insert a picture something that sums up their clothing style.



as with all memes, you don’t have to do it but it would be really interesting to read about all of your inquisitors :>
