“i’m tired…”


Gah what a beautiful rainy town this is! I absolutely adored all of the details in it; everything was absolutely beautiful! It was so dreamy and at the perfect time of day (I love the 7pm tune! ^o^), so please go and check out this still wip; you won’t be disappointed at all! :3

Sorry for the terrible screenshot quality…but I have a question. Is this from Solas or nah? Cause it totally seems like he left behind some advice for the Inquisitor and was also telling them where to go next (the floating upside down island?) Plus the “as if left for someone to find” choice of wording… I see you Bioware.

hi! i know it was a while ago but u rbd a post about how white content creators in the da fandom shouldnt make ocs of color esp. black ocs so i was wondering if u think it's disrespectful for biracial ppl (white/black for me) to have fully black characters? im asking bc i know my experiences w racism won't be the same as someone who's 100% black. u must get these questions all the time tho and i dont want to sound like another mixed person crying "what abt me" so np if u dont wanna answer this!

I think you’re referring to this post about digital blackface. If you scroll down, you’ll see that I’m not 100% in agreement with all of it, mainly because I think telling white fans not to even try creating CoC can easily be taken as a justification for other fandoms’ whitewashing and sidelining canon characters of color.

What I agree with the most is that Black ocs by white players shouldn’t be put on a pedestal while Black ocs by Black players are ignored. That is where it’s coming from when players of color are asking white players not to create ocs of color. That, and the popular Black ocs are only superficially Black (they’re essentially white ocs painted brown, hence the term digital blackface). 

I don’t see why you, as a biracial person, shouldn’t create a darkskin oc. If your experience is extremely cut off from Black experiences, you might want to do some exploration beforehand. But you are a creator of color, you shouldn’t feel guilty about wanting to make ocs that are darker than you. JMHO.

Other than that, you should seek out other DA creators of color when looking for ocs of color.

Shit! Damn it! We save Ferelden, and they’re angry! We save Orlais, and they’re angry! We close the breach twice, and my own hand wants to kill me! Could one thing in this fucking world just stay fixed?! DRAGON AGE: INQUISITION, ADVISERS  

it’s honestly really funny to me how people want to justify cullen’s terribly paced and badly thought out development and characterization with “but he’s a complex character!”

duncan was a complex character

solas is a complex character

morrigan and flemeth are complex characters

fenris is a complex character

anders is a complex character

honestly dragon age is literally drowning in complex characters

cullen is a boring character that was brute-forced into a main role because there was a section of fandom who made romance mods about him

cullen was a minor character who had endings in the previous games like “goes on a mage killing spree” but because some people liked the way he looked they retconned any of his negative endings and made him a main character anyway and negated any of your choices concerning him

he isn’t complex. he’s boring but attractive by typical standards and a bunch of you fell for it and now the rest of us have to live with him no matter what choices we made in-game. but sure it’s just because he’s a complex character~ and the rest of us can’t appreciate it. it’s not like the universe isn’t full of complex characters and we might just be sort of put off by how obviously they’re shoehorning in a character with a badly written backstory just to appeal to people who don’t want to play without a not!alistair
