One of My Favorite Banters with Solas

Solas: Have you ever had any interest in learning magic, Sera?
Sera: Get off.
Solas: While it has not manifested naturally, there are ways to determine whether arcane gifts lie dormant within you.
Sera: What?? Don’t make me think about that. I have to sleep at night!
Solas: Sleeping would give you the chance to explore the Fade. I could introduce you to spirits!
Sera: Right, you’re messing with me on purpose!
Solas: {innocently} Why would I do that? It is not as though I know WHO filled my bedroll with lizards…
Sera: {laughing} Fair point. That was pretty good.

I love this banter between Solas and Sera for quite a few reasons, a couple of which I’ll mention here. One, Sera finally gets a prank pulled on her and has the good nature to say it was a “pretty good” prank. Two, the prank was pulled by Solas and it is BEAUTIFUL.

It cracks me up that some people paint Solas as this completely serious and/or constantly depressed stick in the mud. I feel like asking “You’ve…actually traveled with him, right?” Pair him with Sera or Vivienne and the sass levels will fly off of the charts (not to mention some of his interactions with Dorian. His “PLEASE SPEAK UP. I CANNOT HEAR YOU OVER YOUR OUTFIT” remark was PRICELESS).

I mean, yes, he does carry himself differently than some of the other sarcastic types within the Inquisition - The Iron Bull and Varric, for instance. Solas’ demeanor is usually (but not consistently) more pensive. However, that doesn’t mean he’s any less humorous - it just means his delivery is not as traditional. In fact, I will wager from certain dialogues we hear that Solas’ sarcasm is not only more subtle but also much sharper than that of his Inquisition counterparts. Take for instance this conversation with Vivienne.

Vivienne: So…an apostate. 
Solas: That is correct, Enchanter. I did not train in your circle. 
Vivienne: Well, dear, I hope you can take care of yourself should we encounter anything outside of your experience. 
Solas: I will try, in my own fumbling way, to learn from how you helped seal the rifts at Haven. Ah, wait! My memory misleads me. You were not there. 

Solas’ remark starts out subtle, almost sounding like a compliment initially. However, the end result is a stab of sarcasm as piercing as a double-edged blade.
Also, the fact that you gain approval with certain sarcastic responses when speaking with him would (in my opinion) generally indicate his appreciation for the fine art of wit and sarcasm. I mean, one of his nicknames is quite literally “The Trickster.” You don’t get a nickname like that by being completely serious all the time (at least not in my experience… ;b ).

And before anyone mentions this - yes, I do realize “Trickster” has other implications (namely what Fen'Harel may or may have not have done in the very distant past), but work with me here. They didn’t give The Joker his name just because that’s the one card out of the deck that he favors (literally or figuratively).

All of that to say I really believe Solas is much more multifaceted than people generally give him credit for - even beyond his sarcasm which I just happened to highlight here. Appreciate his wisdom and pensive nature but don’t forget to look for the gems of his humor as well. Trust me, they’re quite amazing. :D

Aries: mayonnaise instead of toothpaste

Taurus: everything gets covered in aluminum foil. E V E R Y T H I N G

Gemini: covers the bottom of the laser mouse with a piece of paper so it won’t work

Cancer: airhorn when they’re not expecting it, causing the prankee to smack their head/fall down

Leo: mixes skittles, M&Ms, and Reeses Pieces together to make a combination directly from Satan’s asshole

Virgo: glitter bomb in the mail (if they’re truly vicious, it’ll get opened over a keyboard or in a bed)

Libra: everything is glued to their desk and they can’t pick anything up or even move their computer mouse

Scorpio: glues someone to a toilet (what the fuck Scorpio)

Sagittarius: lies to someone to prank them- I’m cheating on you, _____ passed away, etc.

Capricorn: moves everything in a room 1 inch to the left to throw the person off

Aquarius: pretends to be dead; makes use of ketchup and pretends it’s blood (Aquarius’s aren’t the best pranksters in the world)

Pisces: chugs a bottle of vodka (no one knows they already filled it with water beforehand)

Hey there ! As promised last time, here are some illustrations that I did these last few months. These are all excerpts from this book that I fully illustrated (all in french). Teaching kids how to do pranks was super fun, and I can’t wait to show you the next one ! (I’m working on one that teaches kids how to make COSTUMES ! I think it’ll be out for Halloween).

Have a nice day and see you soon !
