It has been four centuries since that victory and we have kept our vigil. We have watched and waited for the darkspawn to return. But those who once called us heroes… have forgotten. We are few now, and our warnings have been ignored for too long. It may even be too late, for I have seen with my own eyes what lies on the horizon. Maker help us all.

I was listening to Magic by Kleo and suddenly felt nostalgic.

I still think about Niels, Natalie and Duncan (and the agents of course) a lot, but I’ve changed as a person an no longer feel comfortable with the comic and it’s themes. Doesn’t mean I can’t draw them every now and then for fun.

It’s been so long since I last drew them it felt right to draw them as slightly older. I imagine Niels to be one hell of a thin, wrinkly old man in his later years.

Sorry about Duncan. I was trying to be artsy and shit, but looking at it now I realize people might want to know what he looks like now. Don’t worry, he looks like himself.

And Natalie is wearing pants purely because I liked the way I drew her legs and wanted to keep it.

When people are talking about DA characters in modern AUs, they usually give them ordinary professions, and that’s cool, but give me modern AU where darkspawn are still around and Grey Wardens are some kind of special forces with all modern gear

also darkspawn can sense them anyway, so they don’t really care about camouflage
