Day 633 - @cyarindraws is hosting a drawing event on her instagram stories and asked us to draw some fanart using this pose. Of course my mind went straight to these two, so here’s Alistair telling the Warden some crazy story. The reason I love Dragon Age and their characters so much is that you decide how you interact with them, and therefore everyone has a different connection, a different view of them. Alistair is my fave because throughout the game he learns to choose himself, to take control over his own life, and you can encourage him in that while also letting him be vulnerable. It was very powerful to me the first time I played Origins and he hasn’t let me, or my Warden, go since 😘
So, did anyone write any fic about bitter-and-slightly-broken exile!Alistair based on his DA:I cameo? My playthrough that ended with him in exile is buried deep under piles of dust and will probably never reach DA:I because you know, I keep recycling my canon PT.
I just watched it on youtube for the first time and love the voice acting there, it made me want to give bitter-and-slightly-broken Alistair a hug and lots of fictional smooching. In DA:O he was sweet as all that but man, I vastly prefer him all grown up and pissed off.
