I don’t fuckin know if I’m single handedly saving the world by being vegan, probably not even close. but what I am saying is….valuing animal lives is the fuckin building block to giving a shit about others with less power. like come on, if you can’t recognize the innocence of a dog or cow or sheep than really ask yourself if your empathy extends as far as you think it does. how can we expect humans to coexist and love one another if meanwhile we’re slaughtering billions of animal lives, it’s gory and it’s ruthless and if you find it easy to eat a being that would never intentionally harm you unprovoked, how far will you go with it? and if you’re going to say some shit like vegans only care about animals, think again bc its the easiest shit in the world to care about humans and meanwhile avoid animal products
Such a lovely prompt from @elvhen-apostate-hobo, and I cried through the whole thing. I made this for @silent-of-spirit and her Inquisitor Liarha, the bold, strong spirit who suffers through so much, yet brings order to Thedas. And a massive thank you to @elfsplaining who I really never ever could write anything without. :’)
I hope you enjoy!
Hushed whispers and shocked gasps echoed through skyhold when the news spread and now silence clung to the walls as if death himself had walked through the mass. Dinner was cut short, although no order of it had been given. The population of their small community roamed the halls, heads hung low in solidarity with their leader.
