Hello! Would you mind recommending your favorite Anora fanfics?

Aaaah no I totally don’t mind! There aren’t many fics with Anora around, so we kinda take what we can get, but I can give you a few. I see that Wendy has recommended you a few already, to which I can add mine:

Love and Levirate, I totally approve, and I would add Pride and Parity, which is the sequel, AND Lemon Levirate, which are little smutty ficlets if you’re into this b/c they are truly well written.

Ode to Power, this is a splendid fic featuring Alistair and Anora trying to navigate their way into their very new marriage and to find where each of them stand. A must read if you’re into that particular pairing.

Grace in Your Heart and Flowers in Your Hair, a fic about glimpses at Queen Anora’s life through the eyes of her handmaiden Erlina. Loved it.

Corin, which a fic featuring a m!Cousland. It’s the longest Anora fic around here and still ongoing, so I really recommend it. I may not approve of Anora’s portrayal all the time but her relationship with this Cousland is really nice and the writing is pretty good.

A Political Marriage, with a m!Cousland too, still ongoing. Interesting take on the Warden and Anora’s story, begins after the Landsmeet.

Sins of a Father, which deals with how Anora coped with her husband’s death after Ostagar and the increasing paranoia of her father. Post-Ostagar until Landsmeet, really nice.

The Queen’s Letters, twenty six moments in Anora’s life, featuring all the people crucial in her life. Lovely fic.

This Fire, one-shot, Anora x Fergus. Which is a ship I really, really like, and this ficlet is both sweet and angsty and perfect.

These are the fics with Anora in the lead. There are a few other fics featuring her that are really interesting too, if you’re fine with Anora not being on the front stage - but being extremely well written:

The Arrangement, which is an amazing AU story about a slightly older f!Cousland married to Loghain. Anora is beautifully written in this, and her relationship with her father is pretty much what I headcanon. Even if it hurts me.

A Midwinter’s Thaw, featuring a f!Cousland as Teyrna of Highever after the Blight who found Alistair again after he dropped everything before the fight with the Archdemon. It’s amazingly written, and Anora is here, married to Fergus and with lots of children. And it’s pretty awesome.

There you go, nonny!




Isaac Marion answers questions about a possible movie adaptation of his new book 'The Burning World' (Warm Bodies sequel).
  • Draquiri: The only zombie movie I've ever loved so I have to ask, will there be more/another movie/s?
  • Isaac: Well this is the Big Question, innit? It's the pivot point my whole life is swinging on right now. It's been in talks for years, and it's gone as far as deals being negotiated, and everyone involved is excited to do the sequel, but the process keeps stalling. I actually have no idea what's going on behind the scenes. I can only assume it's about money, and it's true that The Burning World is a bigger and more intense story and would be a much more challenging adaptation—probably a 150-million-dollar film if they tried to do it literally—but I know Jonathan Levine could find a way to boil it down. I would love to see that crew back together again. I would love to see their take on this story. I really hope it happens.
  • Wolffairy12: Will Nicholas Hoult be in this one too?
  • Isaac: If there IS a "this one" then he would certainly have to be in it. If they recast the main character, we are in seriously depressing straight-to-video territory...
  • jon_hobbit: You gonna make the movie?
  • Isaac: Am I personally going to make the movie? No, I am just a writer guy, although I did just co-direct a book trailer that looks pretty damn movie-like and will hopefully be done in time for release day. But I very much hope THEY make the movie. You know...THEM.

Okay so i blogged this before but in-light of recent events i need to update it ( and I didn’t want to ruin the other one because that maybe right… 

Okay so, it has been confirmed that there are a set of twins in PLL, I think these twins are Mrs Dilaurentis and Mrs Cavanaugh…look how similar they look!

In the story Ali tells on Halloween about the two little girls, she is telling the story of her mum and Marion Cavanaugh.

Obviously Marion Cavanaugh survived but I think that’s why she drinks and acts so depressed when she is older because she is really damaged by her psyco sister, Mrs Dilaurentis.

Remember how creepy Mrs D was in that episode where she snuck into Spencers room! She’s crazy and should be locked in Radley, but instead her sister got put in because Mrs D convinced everyone Marion was the crazy one (like how Alison and Courtney get mixed up in the books)

That’s why Mrs D was on the board at Radley, so she could keep an eye on her sister.

Next, onto Bethany Young who I think is Mrs Cavanaughs daughter, that’s why Mrs D wanted Bethany to call her Auntie Jessie! because she literally is her aunt! It would also explain the two yellow dresses Ali found as a kid

Mrs D brought one for her niece as well as her daughter, but i’m betting she never told her husband about her crazy family so she hid them

EDIT: thanks to for the image and can i just say i love how they wrapped the baby in a yellow blanket, but anyway, firstly i think its possible this baby is Bethany- yellow is her favourite colour, the filmer could be Marion? and i think the boys are Toby and Jason. Mrs D only tells one of them to kiss their sister which makes me think only one of them is her brother, we all know Jason is 7 years older than Ali and in this picture the boys cant be more than 4/5 which makes it impossible.

I think the reasons she is called Bethany Young are:

  1. Because, like in the books, everyone in Rosewood is conscious of their image and Mrs D didn’t want anyone finding out Bethany was mentally ill (mental illness can run in families, she probably didn’t want anyone getting suspicious)
  2. As Mrs D was on the board of Radley she admitted Bethany under a fake name so she could keep an eye on her too, also maybe family members couldn’t both be together if they shared the same illness.

I think her real name may be Christine because on the visitors list to the blind school we see someone called Chris Cavanaugh, after all Jenna would be her half sister

EDIT: this is such an amaing pick up by when Jenna is moving in with Toby the box on the top left says ‘Jenna and Bethanys room’!!!!!!!!

 and again on the dental patient records we see C. Cavanaugh

EDIT: omg i just realised this but C.Cavanaugh/Chirs, these names are so similar to Charles!!!! Bethany is Charles.

This would also make her Toby’s sister/ half sister, we all know Bethany drew creepy pictures of demons, well according to prettylittlesecretsinthewoods, in season 1 episode 5, Toby is also drawing pictures of demons…

This could be a serious clue as to their connection! Also I just read that apparently Marlene posted a picture of a boy and posted brother

I googled it and i’m not sure if this is it but I think so, anyway I know Toby isn’t black but he’s the only character who really wears those checked shirts and I they cant make it too obvious, and the doll behind looks like a boy but if they were both boys then wouldn’t Marlene have written Brothers? Maybe she just has her hair tied up or short hair? Also the general idea is that Bethany has some sort of deformity and the blonde doll is missing a finger!

EDIT: i knew that blonde doll was a girl!!! these pictures are from the finale

this picture was in Arias fake room

this is from -A’s lair/vault, theyre the same dolls!!!!

Once Marion was put in Radley again, Mrs D stopped her from being able to see her son, Toby, maybe because she thought she was an unfit mother, or maybe because as the twin story goes they resented each-other so Jessica Dilaurentis wanted to punish her sister. In S04E04, Toby talks to Marion’s old doctor. He said “She hated being away from you, but there were forces that were just too much for her” the forces being Mrs D

In the first picture Bethany draws a demon stealing a boy, I think Bethany drew this as a depiction of Mrs D (the demon) keeping Toby (the boy) from Marion Cavanaugh (the woman in the dress running after them).

The second is Mrs Cavanaugh falling from the roof at Radley, you can see the woman is wearing the same dress as in the first picture, Mrs D and Marion had a fight, probably about Mrs D not letting Marion see Toby, and Mrs D, being crazy, pushed Marion out of the window, she claimed it was suicide but Bethany saw it, which is why she hated her and drew this…it would make sense as Jessica D lied about the suicide…

Mrs D tried to apologise to Bethany by being kind to her and buying her a pony but Bethany wanted to hurt Mrs D like Mrs D hurt her.

So Bethany becomes the first -A (she dosent actually use the -A thing yet) and begins to send Ali creepy dolls/ messages like “its my turn to torture you”,

We all used to think that it was someone that Ali used to be mean to but I think its like Bethany saying, your mum tortured my family so now i’m going to torture you. From Bethanys picture of Mrs D watering the roses

it shows Bethany knew what the Dilaurentis house looked like, (look at the porch area! its exactly the same!) I think Bethany drew herself as the monster because she is going to become Mrs D’s demon.

She knew because she had been spying on them (Mrs D definitely wouldn’t risk taking Bethany to Rosewood, she knew how dangerous that could be) then on Halloween, Bethany escapes to torture Ali some more…

We see a Radley car outside the old house where Ali leads the girls to ‘test’ them. I think Bethany stole the car in order to escape Radley because she knew what was going to happen that night so she hid in the house to wait for Ali. I think she dressed as that creepy doll, you can see the person is wearing gloves, Bethany could have dressed as a caretaker or janitor to get out of Radley un-suspected because you can see that they just have a black top on and not the matching costume. Then she scares Ali in the Halloween costume shop, after sending her the “im watching you” message to let Ali know things are getting serious. Then later, she attacks Ali in the house when Ali thinks its Noel, and sends her the last message of that night, “dying to know who I am? You’ll find out soon” and starts the whole -A thing, to show she is dangerous.

Which brings us to the night Ali went missing, according to Ali we see Mrs D on the phone she is looking out the window really worried and she says “how could this happen” “I don’t understand”

I think that she’s on the phone with Radley, they are calling her to tell her that Bethany has escaped, that’s why she tells Ali “I do not want you going out tonight” she’s scared that something will happen to her. The phone rings for a second time and she asks if there is any news and says she is worried at tells them to send someone, like send a search party.

Ali gets really scared about -A after she gets the message saying that she is going to die on that night,

Although Alison didn’t remember I think somehow Bethany knew about the two yellow dresses, its clear from the lipstick on the mirror that Bethany was in Alis room so why couldn’t she have planted the top there too?

Bethany forged a letter from Alis mum to make sure Ali wore the yellow top. In this recent episode in the recording of Bethany Young she says “She’s not the only one who can make plans” I don’t think this evil bitch Bethany keeps referring to is Alison, I think its Mrs D, after all Mrs D did murder her mum, Bethany then made her own plans to make Mrs D suffer.

Then, as she told the girls she went round trying to figure out who it was before it was too late. However, she changed the ending, we all know ali bases her lies on the truth, so here is what really happened, credit to SpencersBarn.Tumblr for the upcoming images…

After Ali and Spencer have the argument Spencer goes home, leaving the shovel in-between the Dilaurentis and Hastings houses

We all know Cece was dressed the same as ali that night, as jason saw her, I think Cece is a double agent, she is pretending to be friends with Alison but is actually working with Bethany, keep your friends close but your enemies closer right! Also, after all the people who have told the girls how much Cece hated them and Alison and blamed them for her getting kicked out of UPEN why would she be BFF’s with Ali? Also we all know Cece went to Radley dressed as Alison, my bet is Bethany mistook Cece for Alison and when crazy on her, Cece explained she wasn’t Ali but hated her too and Viola! An alliance is formed. 

So anyway, Cece dressed the same to confuse Ali and distract her 

Ali is looking at cece confused then…

Bethany thought she killed Alison and left her body there to be found by Mrs D

But, Melissa finds Ali and after seeing Spencer go after her with a shovel buries her to protect Spencer.

Using her powers Mrs Grunwald knew something was wrong,

Alison leaves the car because she was scared she would be vulnerable in hospital

This is where Ali lied about Mona finding her, you can see that she isn’t walking down a random road its her own drive. 

Mrs D is happy because she thinks she has found Bethany, but actually Bethany lured Sarah Harvey to Rosewood that night encase her plan went wrong.

Furious, Alison lifts the shovel

and hit Sarah in the head

Ali is still standing after the shot of a blonde (Sarah) falling to the ground…

Mrs D is shocked that her daughter was capable of that


once ali falls, mrs d becomes distraught

Then trying to protect her daughter

Mrs D then burries Sara thinking it was Bethany while asking ali, “what did you do” and helps ali run away. I think it was then that Mrs D told Alison about the whole Bethany thing, that’s why when Alison was telling the girls her version of the nights events she said “A made it clear if she wanted to kill me she could”, so Alison knew Bethany was the first -A but thought she was dead which is why she never knew who the -A after Mona was. Who else would Mrs D be protecting than her own daughter. Also in the episode -A is for answers the girls tell Ali they think her mum stole the game from Mona, and then comment on how she isn’t surprised, Ali may have thought her mum stole the game in order to protect her.

That’s why when Holbrook came to Mrs D telling her “Mrs Dilaurentis "were not certain your daughters in that grave” she acts so shady, because she knows its not! Normally if a mother who has lost a child finds out that there is a chance that they are alive they would be so happy but Mrs D just says “well I am” Also, we all know Mrs D never did a proper identification of the body she said the yellow top was enough, it’s because she felt so guilty for murdering someone.

However, Mrs D saw Spencer go after Ali with a shovel, and realised that she could protect herself and Ali by going to Mr Hastings. Mr Hastings didn’t want Jessica going to the police and ruining his daughters life (he had some dirt on Jessica so blackmailed her into silence…maybe he knew about Marion?) which, unbeknown to Peter Hastings, worked on Jessicas behalf too. That’s why Peter says to Mrs D “the police are still asking pointed questions about Spencer, do we still have an understanding?”

But then Melissa tells her dad she was the one who actually killed Bethany Young (or so she thought, she actually only buried Ali who survived), so Peter tells her to run away, hence Melissa going to London. 

When Alison returned Bethany, not realising Alison already knew about her had to kill Mrs D to stop her spilling about Bethany. Maybe Mrs D had worked out she was alive, that’s what the email was about.

The girls are -A free for a year, which Bethany used to get surgery to fix her deformity, change her hair and become…LESLEY! Listen to the most recent recording of Bethany from Radley, they sound exactly the same! That’s why Lesley wanted the book from Mona’s room because she knew it contained the tape and she couldn’t have anyone finding it, but because Mike made such a big scene Hanna followed Lesley around and made sure she put the book back, so Lesley had no time to look for the tape. That was the relevance of Hanna’s flashback that episode, it’s not Alison who changed so noone would notice her, its Bethany, she changed her hair and wore glasses and called herself Lesley so she could secretly spy on everyone! Until they find Sarah’s body, Bethany realises she has to make it look like Sarah is her so she she corrupts the files, by making it look like she is dead so noone is looking for her or suspects her, and she is free from Radley, she then goes about recruiting all of Alison’s victims because they are easy targets, however she remains anonymous to them. She befriends Mona that summer as Lesley (Mona dosen’t know she is Uber -A). Then Maya moves into the Dilaurentis house and finds Ali’s diaries while clearing out, then Alison goes back looking for her diaries, she cant have them falling into the wrong hands (Spencer sees Ali from her window the Pilot) But Maya sees Ali, she finds out so much that she has to run away “MAYA KNEW” Alison was alive. Maya then worked for Alison. analyzinga realised that the bag Ali took with her when she ran away was at the Khans cabin around the time Maya was there I think she met Alison.

I think that’s why -A gives flowers at Bethanys funeral because she feels bad for her family pretending she is dead.

EDIT: So, alot of you are saying that this cant be true because Marlene said Mona was the first -A, which is true. We all know Marlene likes to say things that are the truth with out actually being the truth if that makes sense. I think, Mona was the first -A, as in she was bethanys first fall girl, Bethany used Mona as her helper, then when she realised the girls were getting too close made Mona take the fall so noone would find out. From this last episode the melody lingers on 5x23 Aria has an interesting conversation with Andrew who says “the only thing Mona likes better than winning is taking the credit.”. (I think Andrew could be on the -A team too and hes talking about how Mona took credit for some of his doings) Later that episode Spencer says “-A knew this quality about me and used it against me” what if -A/ Bethany did the same thing to Mona? Marlene likes to refer to the -A now as Uber A, which she has never used to describe Mona, she just used -A!


He’s going to kill me - M

Now I was sat thinking of characters beginning with M: 

- Mona Vanderwaal

- Maya St Germain 

- Melissa Hastings

- Marion Cavanaugh

- Mike Montgomery (I haven’t really seen anyone mention him)

anonymous asked:

do you have any tips on writing anora in character, I'm having a hard time getting her voice just right?

Hmmm. I don’t really know what to say, it depends of what you want to write about and how you decide to think her reactions and relationships to the people around her - Loghain, Cailan, the Warden, etc. You can check her character file here and here for starters, it helps me a lot to keep her in character.

Here’s a bunch of things I think are important in Anora’s life that I try keep in mind when I write her (and how I see her):

thejboy88  asked:

Even though I love the idea of Anora and the Cousland warden being in love, many other DA fans have argued that their marriage was little more than a political play, a means for both parties to achieve power. Even though I disagree and feel that genuine affection could develop between them I'd be lying if I said I couldn't see their point, at least from what we're shown in the game itself. What are your thoughts on this?

Ah! I truly believe there is genuine affection between them already.

I think if you play Awakening, it’s pretty obvious how Anora feels about this new husband of hers. Even after the defeat of the Archdemon, she seems incredibly mellow: she mentions being nervous about their upcoming wedding, she’s glad when the Warden says he will stay at court and is grateful for the help…

And in Awakening, which is only 6 months later, she’s downright affectionate.

  • “I trust you are well husband… no permanent damage?”

Notice the pause between the two sentences, as if she’s afraid that he might have been hurt or injured.

  • “it seems there isn’t much to say… unless you have something to add, Commander?”

She defers to his autority and respect his title. She doesn’t impose her judgment and values his input. Knowing Anora, I think that’s quite telling.

  • “It troubles me to ask you to leave the Court in order to deal with this…”

Worried about your husband, aren’t you? :D

  • “And this is why you are a Prince of Ferelden” - when the Warden answers he’ll be fine.
  • “No easy task, but I am confident you are up to it” - bolded b/c she emphasize quite a bit on that word
  • "I would be careful just how you tempt fate, my prince” - notice the use of the possessive…

Have you heard the pride in her voice? Her smile? She’s obviously admirative of her husband and his skills.

  • "Good luck my husband”

The few last sentences are so sweet and tender. I believe their is genuine affection there. Plus, notice the use of “my” when she could have done without it.

So all in all, I do believe they care about each other… and that it might develop into love over time :)

anonymous asked:

Bran killed Connor?! I know you said he was ruthless, but I never suspected you'd make him THAT ruthless. What other choices did he make? Wiping out the mages? Killing off the Dalish by siding with the werewolves? Preserving the anvil perhaps?

Erm, no, nothing like that. He sided with the mages, destroyed the Anvil, and killed the werewolves - he might have been a little blinded by his own personal history (remember, Cousland and werewolves are not friends) and realized a posteriori this was a mistake but it’s too late now to do anything about it.

Killing Connor isn’t that ruthless when you have no idea if you can save him in time, really. Bran and the party went to Redcliffe right after Lothering so they had no idea if the Circle could help or how long that help would be in coming.

The demon already killed almost the entire town. Bran doesn’t want to gamble on the remote chance that it’ll stay in check long enough for them to go to the Circle and then wait for the mages to turn up. And blood magic is out of the question - he doesn’t even trust Jowan to begin with.

So it doesn’t leave him many options.

bayvillesiren-deactivated201609  asked:

i'm going to be SUPER PREDICTABLE AND ASK FOR anora/alistair. maybe puppies could be involved somehow.

“Alistair, for the hundredth time, slow down! You’re going to break your neck, running like you are now,” Anora grumbled, amused despite of herself by her husband’s enthusiasm. “They’re still going to be there whether you walk or run, husband.”

Alistair had stopped when Anora had raised her voice, and was now waiting for his wife to catch up with him, a gigantic grin plastered on his face. How childlike he could be in his glee, Anora thought. He reminded her of Cailan, sometimes, with his easy charm and unabashed passion, the way his eyes lit and his voice would tremble slightly with excitation. He looked very much like his brother now, as if the Theirin men became one and the same when a smile illuminated their face.

She felt her heart tighten a little, as it always did when Cailan’s face seemed to substitute itself to Alistair’s. She allowed the melancholy to wash over her, and forced her wandering mind to focus once more on the man in front of her.

“You’ve never been with mabari before, haven’t you? You wouldn’t be so calm if you had. New puppies, can you imagine? Cute little snout, the tiniest paws you could imagine, and a fur so soft you want to bury your face into it. I can’t wait to see them,” Alistair chattered excitedly.

Maker, he could be such a boy sometimes.

She smiled, his joy infectious. Before she could stop herself, the words had left her mouth, “Father had a mabari once—” and froze, warily eyeing her husband, knowing the topic of her father was still too raw to address without them hurting each other.

Alistair’s smile had faltered a bit, but to his credit, that was the only thing Anora could see of his displeasure at the turn of the conversation. He had gotten much better at hiding his true feelings since he has grown into his role as King under her attentive tutelage – the way he wore his heart on his sleeves, he wouldn’t have lasted much longer had she not urged him to control himself, again and again. Anora was a master at reading people, however, and as good as Alistair had gotten, he still wasn’t able to conceal the barest hints of his thoughts.

“Yes, well.” He coughed, hiding what she knew was both anger and guilt in the awkward gesture.

“I never had a mabari, though, you’re right. I can’t seem to see what you all find in those dogs. They’re so very loud and smelly; I do not relish the prospect of taking care of one of them at all.”

Relieved that she’d taken the conversation past its uncomfortable topic, Alistair brought his hand over his chest in mocked shock. “The Queen of Ferelden, speaking thus of the pride of our lands, the very symbol of our nation! My, for shame, Anora! I do not think I shall ever recover from this wound”

Anora was laughing now, too, his theatrics never failing to wring a smile out of her – though she’ll be damned if she’d ever admit it to him. “Come now, before you start acting like one!”


The puppies were adorable, she had to give him that. She’d never seen something quite so helpless, so vulnerable, yet so very precious. The mother mabari stood proud and tall next to her offspring, as if showing them off to her human lords for inspection and daring them to find any imperfection in them at all.

Next to her, Alistair was speechless, and Anora thought she heard him whisper quietly to himself, “Hello, old friends.” Startled by the sudden change in his demeanor, Anora tore her gaze away from the puppies to her husband. She could almost see the boy he had been then, the one who grew up in Eamon’s stables and slept in the straw, trousers torn and nose running, the dogs his only companions. She understood now why he felt so pressed to see the mabari new litter… She’d forgotten how meaningful to his childhood the dogs were to him – and perhaps served as a bittersweet reminder.

The puppies had all come out to greet their new friend, and Anora indulged herself in quickly petting some of them, until she went to sit herself on a nearby bench, content in watching her husband fill in for the two of them. One of the puppies had followed her, and had taken her pat on the head as an invitation to sleep on her lap, which the queen had graciously allowed.

When the time came for them to get back to their duties, Anora found herself unable to move without the puppy making a show of its displeasure at being roused, and most importantly at being taken away from her. She tried to put it aside thrice for it to come back to her all tail and tongue before Alistair’s eyes went wide and he announced in an excited voice, “I… think I better go fetch the dog master. I’m pretty sure this puppy has been imprinting on you.”

As Alistair left the kennels, Anora looked down to find the puppy conscientiously licking her fingers. Smiling, she whispered to the amber eyesn “How about I call you Adalla?”

anonymous asked:

How do you think Anora or Bran's deceased parents would have felt about their respective child's spouse?

Well I’ve changed the canon with Bran now that I’ve managed to wrap my head around the dark ritual, and Loghain is actually very much alive in this PT. I want my baby princesses to have a grandfather (one busy dogding assassins’ blades in Orlais but whatever he takes time off to fulfill his grandfather duties)

As I said, Anora and Eleanor shared a special bond and despite the age gap, I truly think they were friends - and more than that, Eleanor was a mentor to Anora. Eleanor thinks very highly of her, and is one of the few people who have seen Anora past the mask of the politician she almost never shakes off. So she’d be thrilled to have her as her daughter-in-law. I headcanon that Bryce doesn’t really get along with Loghain, and doesn’t know Anora as well as his wife does, but since he trusts Eleanor, he’d have no objection to the match. Anora is a fine ruler as far as he’s concerned, and politically, she’s a sound choice.

Needless to say Loghain is waaaay more skeptical, first because Cailan p much screwed up thing and he’s super wary of another glory-seeker and foolish ruler - Anora has been through this once and she doesn’t need to go through this again - and second because he personally think that no man is worthy of his daughter. But seeing how they look at each other and how much Bran respects and loves her, he’d be more confident… Bran even gets the “not-as-worthless-as-you-could-have-been” talk once the little princesses are on the way :D

thejboy88  asked:

Assuming he'd have lived long enough, what do you think Loghain's thoughts and feelings would be regarding his daughter's marriage to the Cousland Warden?

I think he’d want to make sure she’d be okay. That it was really her choice, and not something she was manipulated into doing - eventhough he’d doubt his daughter could be manipulated to do anything she did not want to.

Loghain is fiercely protective of Anora; there is only one greater love in his life, which is the love he bears for his country. His daughter is everything that is left of his marriage, of his youth: for this and so much more, he truly believes that she belongs on the throne and is what Ferelden needs.

To think that she has to marry again in order to legitimize her rule would bother him a great deal. For him, Anora is a queen in her own right, and has proven far more competent than her late husband. Anora has suffered through enough betrayals and foolishness as it is, and does not need another fickle man in her life. So he’d be extra critical of the Warden to see if he’s truly worthy of his daughter. Which would translate into little jibes and water testing, you know.

Then, as time pass, he’ll see how much more relax and at ease Anora is, he’ll see the small gestures of affection and respect between the two, he’ll see how his daughter smiles more often when he’s around or how his eyes lighten and soften whenever he sees her. And it’ll gladen his old heart, that his daughter finally found her match, a man who loves her for who she is and not for what she represents, a man who fights for what he believes, a man who is worthy of his claim.

synthed-deactivated20160408  asked:

Do you have any headcanon for Anora's mother? Almost nothing is said of the woman Loghain did end up marrying and having a very strong daughter with.

This isn’t going to be very organised, it’s a bunch of ideas that have been floating around, so I’m gonna use your ask to dump them all here, hehe.

answered vs. unanswered

i didn’t want to post every list over again bc a lot of questions for certain characters weren’t answered


what did shana do at the lodge fire? did she really light it? yes. it is unknown where shana went after lighting the fire

was it really shana on the roof in new york? according to marlene through an interview, yes


who killed maya? was it really nate? according to the writers through twitter, yes

what did maya know? (’maya knew’) according to marlene through twitter, that nate was in rosewood


what did melissa and cece talk about ‘that night?’ cece confirmed this was not her, that it was either bethany or ali jason saw melissa talking to


what was wilden’s role in ‘that night?’ jenna has told emily that he was there, and melissa called someone that implied it to be him, but we haven’t seen any flashbacks to back this up with. why? wilden drove cece back to radley ‘that night,’ and covered up cece being there for jessica. we don’t know how jenna knew he was there, or if it was him mel was on the phone with


who were the blondes in mona’s house the day she was kidnapped? who picked the lock? who climbed the stairs? who entered the bedroom? who was the one in the video? according to marlene in an interview, cece kidnapped mona. from the finale, we could gather cece also drugged mona. if there were two people, then sara was also there

did mona have a part in what happened to beth? mona hit bethany thinking beth was ali

in 3.24 mona tells the liars that ali pulled her out, that ali pulled them all out, and that mona saw her. in 4.24, ali says that she only pulled out hanna. which one is it? mona saw sara pull them out, but sara was dressed in a red coat with an ali mask and mona mistook her for ali

why wasn’t mona laying unconscious on the ground with the other liars at the lodge fire? why did she come running from the direction of in the lodge? did she not pass out? did she wake up on her own? according to an interview with marlene, mona was pulled out alongside emily and aria. she likely came to while sara was pulling her out - like hanna w/ ali - and ran back towards the lodge afterwards

who was mona talking to at the lodge in 3.24? she tells them that they’re finally going to get what they wanted, that ’it’s going to end.’ what did they want? what was going to end? was this ali or A? this was cece. cece wanted to end the game and kill the liars, before she learned ali was alive

in the QOH video shown in 4.01, wilden makes it sound like garrett wanting to talk to spencer was unplanned, and to ’just leave her [aria?]’ was it always in the main plan for garrett to be killed? or did he show up unannounced? if it wasn’t planned, and A didn’t know garrett would be there, then who were the bullets for that mona gave A at the beginning of 3.13? according to an interview with marlene, wilden was acting on his own in killing garrett

how did mona know to pick ali up on the side of the road 'that night?’ did mona know ali would be targeted? was it just by chance mona came across ali? how would mona have known ali was rescued? mona hit bethany thinking she was ali. mona was already in ali’s backyard. mona didn’t know ali had been buried alive and presumably just thought that ali had the head wound from mona hitting her

is mona with or against the liars? between the liars and cece, mona is with the liars

what happened to mona when she was kidnapped, who drugged her? who’s car trunk was she put in? did emily ever find the mona doll in her nativity scene? cece drugged mona and kidnapped her

how did mona know hanna and the liars were getting texts again in 3.02? who was keeping mona informed and in the loop while she was in radley? cece, as cece stole the game from mona

PLL 6a Finale *spoilers*

I’ve read many complaints about this reveal. Here are my thoughts.

  • Don’t be salty just because your theory was wrong. 
  • We did get answers, just like we were promised.
  • Most of the loose ends were tied up
  • Cece being A makes sense if you look back and think about it all.
  • Of course Sara was doing all of her dirty work. It makes sense that she was Black Widow AND Red Coat.
  • Thank goodness all of the mystery wasn’t taken away from the show.
  • Marlene did a lovely job and I cannot wait to see what she does with the rest of the series.
