Gifty for @thereluctantinquisitor for reasons I’m not ready to talk about yet until I’m done setting it all up, and I am excite!
So we’ve been talking about how her OCs would react to this big scary looking pirate showing up at Skyhold, and Varlen - being Varlen - would likely be intimidated at first, nope like a pro and keep his distance until someone else deems this guy safe to be around with.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) for Varlen Jarvaazim isn’t anything like that at all; he kinda looks at Varlen like how one would look at a kicked puppy, something that needs help, a nudge in the right direction,
and he has no interest in keeping his distance. He means well with it, trust me on that, but he still ends up looking like a kidnapper. XD The grumpy clanmate part refers to Hanin.
As for Dorian… this was gonna be a silly thing at first but then I had to add him in, and then it got serious. One of the rules Jarvaazim lives by is that you never ever EVER turn your back on a ‘Vint. This is just really bad timing on Dorian’s part, and now he’s gotta deal with it. How he does that, no idea… gonna leave that up to @thereluctantinquisitor if she wants to lol.
Jarvaazim is a ton of fun to draw but my hand hurts lol. Time for a break!
Or maybe more like Tales of Zestiria the (Train Wreck) X(ing), am I right?
Anyway, where did we leave off last week? Oh right, Rose became Sorey’s squire, even though it would mean she dies if he dies (somehow it always felt more like the other way around in game, I swear, the number of times Rose’s AI gets her killed … ). Oh right, Pendrago’s clergy somehow dragged a huge-ass dragon into the basement (don’t ask me how, the thing literally can’t fit inside the hallways of Pendrago Shrinechurch without it being like, brought in in pieces), aaaaaand Alisha sent a “Please Sorey, help us! You’re our only hope!” (telepathic) telegram.
And so, back to Hyland we go. Bye Rolance! It was nice (not really) seeing you! Oh, and bye Sergei!
tl;dr: Not as much to complain about this week, although nothing really happened either. Like, 6th episode from the end and this is what we’re getting? Um, yeah, not sure this was the best decision ever, but hey, setting up Alisha and Zaveid to be a parallel to DezeRose is just fucking hilarious considering how he never has a shirt on, and Alisha has shades of being a proper lady. Also, that next episode preview skit is honestly golden and again, I recognize Alisha and Zaveid more from that skit than the entire episode.
You didn’t know how long it has been since the last Cas put
you under, you had no way to measure time. There was just The Voice growing
ever louder, ever stronger. “I’m coming Y/N, I’m coming Y/N, I’m coming Y/N.
I’m coming Y/N, FOR YOU!” So, you answered one of the oldest questions ever
asked of man: fight or flight? Your answer of course seemed the most prudent at
the time, flee. Only once you’d gotten away did you try to regroup and find
safety, leaving the idea of retaliation far behind.
