I love Merrill so much
I love how, when Tamlen’s missing, she’s the only one who’s willing to admit to themselves that he’s probably dead. I love that she has that awkward moment of insensitivity but you can tell she doesn’t really mean anything nasty by it.
I love that, even though the mirror was destroyed, Merrill still took a piece along because up yours Duncan, you can’t tell me what to do with an artifact of my people.
I love that she’s genuinely sad when Mahariel leaves despite appearing somewhat cold before. It reminds me so much of a person who cares deeply but isn’t sure how to express themselves.
I love how she willingly alienates herself from her clan because she believes restoring the Eluvian will help her people and she won’t even let those closest to her stop her from pursuing her own path in life.
I love that she doesn’t think blood magic is evil despite her own Keeper seeming to think so. That she has enough faith in herself to know her boundaries with regards to spirits.
I love that she literally builds an entire freaking Eluvian with one shard. Someone get this nerd a medal!
I love that she’s cute and cuddly and lethal at the same time. Talking about baby griffins named Feathers at one point and destroying criminals’ asses the next.
I love that she can talk smack despite seeming like an innocent snowflake. “Oh but there’s not really a fire is there?” and then the next she’s telling people to fuck off when they try to lecture her. Good for you Merrill!
“Ma vhenan! Thank the Creators! How did you escape? Was it exciting? Did you shank someone? *Fist pump*”
Gets excited about fighting and party crashing and Isabela’s pirate stories.
Tells Hawke their mother might be with her own Gods despite Hawke and Leandra being human.
Her asking Anders about books to spice up her sexy times with Hawke because if you thought she was some meek virgin, you’re probably wrong.
Zevran flirting with Hawke and Merrill just softly, casually going “I think we’ve heard enough from you.” Like damn that sounded icy and awesome.
Just ughhh get me more of this awkward, cute, bad ass nerd. I don’t want her story to be over yet. I want her involved in the Solas arc so badly, just imagine how much she’d shine there.
