  • (aveline | wynne): team benevolently judgmental team mom

Okay, so here’s the deal. A long time ago, in a galaxy not so far away, Linda (aka fenharell) and I (aka dorianpavus) developed a crack theory about the plot and characters of DAI. 

We wrote it in a crazed, post-Masked Empire haze of speculation and excitement, and… 

WE ACTUALLY THINK WE’RE RIGHT.*

*at least partially

So, here’s what we think, in the shorthand:

  • The main villain of the game will be Fen'Harel, the Dread Wolf.
  • Fen'Harel works through agents (like Felassan, from the Masked Empire).
  • Solas is one of those agents, and MIGHT be an ancient elf of Arlathan who’s been woken up to do Fen'Harel’s bidding.
  • Solas will betray the Inquisition.

Speculation and reasoning under the cut.

zutara mini drabble, “cold”

each time zuko feels sunlight caress his skin, he thinks of her. 

a firebender shouldn’t need warmth, and yet he clings to his dreams of her like a man dying of thirst, cradling his last few drops of relief. the waterbender, his salvation in a desert. 

he does not understand why he is so cold when he has fire in his blood, but that heat is nothing, nothing, to the way her smile sends fire dancing violently through his veins, the way her laugh burns through his soul like redemption.

uncle iroh once said how important waterbending was, even to a firebender. 

now he understands.
