- what I think realistically: I think the reason his hair is white but not his eyebrows is because there is a small 1 inch radius around his lyrium that turns his hair white and he has lyrium all over his skull.
- what I think is fucking hilarious: Since we see him define Elven words and swear in it, I don’t think it’s that much of a stretch for him to be fluent in Elvhen - where he learned it, I have no idea, ???? but it would absolutely be wonderful for him and Merrill to have a friendship that consists entirely of them arguing and insulting each other in Elvhen, ranging from serious philosophical arguments like “is the story of Ghilan’nain a metaphor for Tevinter’s destruction of Arlathan” to, and more commonly, “do olives belong on pizza”
- what is heart crushing and awful: ….i have a lot of headcanons but for this I will simply say that I think the reason the lyrium experiment worked on him and didn’t kill him was partially due to the fact that Fenris wasn’t fully grown when it happened :)
- what would never work with canon but i do what i want: he and anders and merrill are friends and are all polite, because they all live in my hawke’s house
