I had a few nuns around me growing up, and they would talk like that; scaring kids with stories of God’s wrath. Made me not want to believe. The only words that stuck with me were something Sister McKenna said about the Bible. She said, “God is love.” Simple and, a little sappy, but that’s the version I like.God is love. The thing that holds us together. And if that’s true, I don’t think he would punish you for making a mistake. I think he’d forgive a mistake.
All right, it’s mostly fangirling. There’s a reason why most of my meta is filed under the tags “i.e. me rambling” or “trulycertain talks bollocks”. But in case anyone’s interested, here’s a list. Mostly things on here are just me putting in my two pence, rather than me being the OP, so not all of it will be that interesting/useful.
Kirkwall and the DA2 crew
The rebuilding of Kirkwall - Essentially: “I wish I’d seen Cullen and Aveline hanging out together and generally being stubborn Fereldans post-DA2. Would’ve been fun.”
Why I like Warden Alistair - A reblog from merilsell with some thoughts about this. The basic answer: I have to do some frowning at canon to make it work, but I think there are positive messages and good storytelling in the Warden ending too. Also me saying that he is quite a BAMF, and I do wish canon would acknowledge this more.
The reason he isn’t fond of Morrigan - A reblog of some meta/headcanon stuff by siawrites about his upbringing. I don’t add much, but the point about Morrigan might be of interest.
Alistair, dumb? Nah. - Pretty much “Reasons Why Alistair Is Actually Quite Bright, Thank You Very Much” Volume 23.
Some daft headcanon stuff about Cullen and Cassandra attempting to carry Adaar to get medical attention after Haven. A reblog of lavellanthedragonslayer’s post. I just really love Adaar, essentially. I should write more Adaar.
Dorian is not skinny or weak without magic - “Cerebral, not ineffectual.” Or “Dorian Pavus is a hot-headed, hard-drinking, strong as hell tough bastard who could probably take you in a bar fight but would much prefer to talk his way out of it instead.”
