This blog gives me life. Also may I ask for Inquisition companions reaction to the inquisitor having a beautiful singing voice?
Yooo I’m actually doing one too. I can’t even thank the two new mods enough for how much they have been writing since they started modding this blog. Therefore I decided that I would finally fulfill this request that mod other originally sent in probably over a year ago.
Cassandra: Cassandra was pleasantly surprised by their singing voice. She found them humming in the Skyhold gardens on afternoon when she was looking for them. If they are Andrastian, she could faintly hear the words of the Chant of Light and if they aren’t, then she didn’t recognize what song they were singing. She let them be for a while, before she had to actually talk with them for the reason she had come there. If their singing brought a few tears to her eyes, then who was she going to tell?
Solas: Solas had found that he didn’t really care for most of the music that was popular since he woke up. He missed the old songs of the elves. However when he hears the inquisitor sing, he has to admit that they were good and he actually enjoyed listening to them. He felt it only necessary to tell them what he thought of their singing and briefly inquires what his friends in the fade would think of their beautiful voice.
Varric: He found out that the Inquisitor could sing during a tipsy game of wicked grace. The inquisitor didn’t seem to be quite wasted yet but they seemed to be feeling the alcohol in their system. Then at some point as they were playing, the inquisitor started to sing. It was pretty, not something you would expect to hear from someone drunk and Varric was impressed. He cheered them on and had them sing him a few songs while he bought them drinks. He would definitely be using them as a model for a bard character in one of his new serials.
Sera: Growing up in Denerim, Sera wasn’t exactly exposed to a lot of music beyond whatever bards inhabited the local taverns. It also seemed that all they wanted to sing about was the Hero of Ferelden which was great and all, they were the Savior from the Fifth Blight, but it got old after so long. So when she heard the Inquisitor, she didn’t really have much background to base it on. But she knew she liked it, which was more than the bard in the Herald’s Rest whom she detested singing about her. “It’s good yeah? People like songs. It makes you seem like people again.”
Vivienne: Vivienne first heard the Inquisitor sing whilst they were entertaining a particularly strange noble at Skyhold. They kept insisting to hear the Inquisitor sing, saying that they heard a rumor of how good they were. With a sigh, they finally agreed after a few days of the noble asking them and began to sing for the nobles, right there in the great hall. Now the Circle wasn’t the most musically enriching place but the courts of Orlais more than made up for it. The singing from the inquisitor brought a smile to her face and she was glad to hear it. Later that week, when the noble had left Skyhold, she invited the inquisitor to have tea with her and the two of them talked for quite a while about music and she even complimented their voice.
Blackwall: Blackwall was used to hearing the way soldiers would jokingly sing songs in the barracks to get a sense of comfort from messing around. It was hard to constantly be fighting, even for the best of soldiers. However most of that singing was usually off-key and drunken. Not like the inquisitor’s. Their singing was precisely on pitch and extremely pleasant to hear. He told them as much and they were happy to hear from him. After that, they would occasionally come to his barn and sit by him near the fire and sing while Blackwall carved them a little trinket.
Iron Bull: It was a complete accident that Iron Bull stumbled upon the Inquisitor singing as they bathed. He had some Ben-Hassrath reports that had been sent to Leliana and she told him that he should take them to the Inquisitor directly. He had no way to know that they were bathing right now. He heard their voice before he entered the room, but thought nothing of it other than the fact that they happen to be singing. When he does see them bathing, he doesn’t freak out like they do. Instead he just sets the papers on their desk and turns to leave. “Ben-hassrath reports for you, Boss. Oh and nice singing there, it sounds great.” He says with a bellowing laugh and their reaction of stuttering made it all worth the while.
Dorian: Dorian had heard many different singers at Tevinter parties, but none of them seemed to compare to the inquisitor’s. It had been unexpected to hear them sing. They had come to the library looking for a book and at some point they started humming as they were looking. After a while the humming turned into quiet singing and Dorian would have complained about it if it wasn’t so nice. When they finished their song, he clapped and peaked out of the shelves at them while flashing a smile at them. “That was great, better than the dull excuses of performers in Tevinter when it wasn’t supposed to be blood magic.”
Cole: “Melodies and Harmonies, sweet vocal music just like the bard. Calming to sing, but no one knows.” Cole was wondering around Skyhold when he hears the Inquisitor’s thoughts from their chambers before the sound of them singing softly drifts down onto the nearby courtyard. He slips past all the nobles to go take to the Inquisitor. When he interrupts their singing, he scared the living daylight out of them. “You should sing again. In the tavern. Not just the Herald, the Inquisitor but also a person, a performer.”
