I woke up this morning, went to work, treated myself to a nice lunch and thought about what I was going to do later. I was going to post a new chapter of ‘Lockdown’ and my friends would come over. All in all I thought it was going to be a good day.
Then the terror attack in Westminster happened.
I was listening to the radio when a news bulletin was announced about sounds of gun fire near parliament. I checked BBC news and saw reports of a stabbing of a police officer and it all sunk in.
I also love that Carver’s reaction to Fenris questioning Hawke about being a mage is to immediately jump to their defense. Unprompted, unbidden, regardless of whether you’re closer to friendship or rivalry (I’m pretty sure?), his first reaction, of his own free will, is to rise to their defense and to make it clear that he will fight Fenris to protect them.
