so foggy following up on “you’re just a guy. a really good looking guy.” with “girls must love the whole, handsome, wounded duck thing” is absolutely him scrambling and sticking his foot in his mouth, right? that’s foggy going, “oh no. i called him hot and he’s not into that how can i play that off in a straight manner. i can say girls are into him? yeah. that works. girls are into him because he’s handsome. fuck. that’s too gay. girls are into him because he’s a handsome duck. ducks aren’t sexy. that sounds objective enough. perfect. ”
So Zevran’s nightmare in The Fade that’s actually what he went through to become a Crow?
Cos the codex on the mission says his nightmare was him reliving his Crow initiation. All your other companions are experiencing just plain old nightmares but the fact that the worse nightmare the Sloth Demon could construct for Zevran wasn’t something fake, but something he actually lived through is so awful and I’m gonna cry.
At least within, say, Alistair’s nightmare he was happy for a bit until the warden arrived and informed him that it wasn’t real, that demons were twisting his perception. but Zevran doesn’t get that. His life has been filled with so much pain that I don’t think the Sloth Demon would’ve even bothered to dig down far enough to find what would make him happy enough to stay entranced under a lesser demon’s powers. Instead, he uses pain to control him, because that’s what people have always used to control him.
Jon Stewart is the same height as Alexander Hamilton and Donald Trump is the same height as Thomas Jefferson and I’m not saying that means anything except that I would delight seeing them in a rap battle.
