When I was one, I had just begun.

When I was two, I was nearly new.

When I was three, I was hardly me.

When I was four, I was not much more.

When I was five, I was just alive.

But now I am six, I’m as clever as clever.

So I think I’ll be six now and forever.

Anders makes numerous anti-slave comments during DA:II and in awakening talks about not even really caring about mage rights, it's not that ooc

I’m assuming you meant to say pro slavery comments in da2?
Also i haven’t played awakening that recently but I do not remember him making any pro slavery comments, he was just more aequitatian than libertarian in terms of the circle because he thought there was no way mages could be free. Also the approval bump that I’m sure prompted this message is Completely ooc because if you take anders to the bone pit he comments on slave spirits still wanting freedom (I don’t remember the exact phrasing but you get the idea) why does this fandom honestly think anders and fenris’s dislike for each other means they’re willing to throw all their morals out the window if the other is hurt? They might be assholes but they’re not That kind of asshole. Anders Doesn’t approve of slavery and neither does Justice, like Justice objected to anders having a Cat because it could be slavery and the writers want me to believe justice would just let hawke send a former slave back to his former master? I don’t believe it for a second.
And on awakening anders not caring about Mage rights; he was powerless to do anything about the mages in the tower so he focused on the one thing he could do, get himself the fuck out of there. Spending time with Justice (and the warden depending on how you play them) definitely influenced anders opinions and also, opinions can change? Like anders not being super rebel apostate in awakening doesn’t invalidate that becoming a huge part of his life in da2?

I’m only 1.5 chapters (reading in Russian goes very slowly) into Dostoevsky’s Demons, but I am already convinced it would be a perfect book to make a modern-day Tumblr-based adaptation of. I don’t mean to equate social justice bloggers with anarcho-nihilist terrorists or anything - I consider myself a social justice supporter and also largely sympathize with the historical movement Dostoevsky was satirizing. But just as some nihilists did bad things, some tumblrites do bad things and, boy, can you imagine Stavrogin fandom? He’s basically a hot sociopathic anime antihero already. I would be in that fandom, honestly. Hot garbage, my fave.
