Um idk what to write but imma a girl and i like plants, candles, and socks. I love to read and I’m re-reading the Last Olympian right now. My favorite movies are Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Little Prince, and Grease. I have commitment issues with tv shows but I love Skam, Skins, Parks and Rec, Doctor Who, and Supernatural. I am super in love with trees, and space. I constantly question existence and love to talk about theories, politics, and morality. I’m sorta nihilistic but hey what does that matter we’ll all be dead soon anyways lol. I don’t think I’m very interesting but I want someone to talk to! I’ve never done this before and have no idea wtf I’m doing I should be doing homework but screw it. I also like to hike and bike and look at stars and eat waffles. Oh and my music is idk really but sorta early 2000s indie rock or something im not really sure. I dig modest mouse, dcfc, sublime (ugh yes pls), K.Flay, and loads of other stuff.

around my age would be groovy, and if ur hella creepy pls don’t. Other than that I dont rlly care! Also i think snail mail would be cool but it doesn’t matter.

Redditor EireneRR4_ posted this image on Reddit after attending the Virgin Media D2 Beta Experience in London today.

He had this to say when inspecting a weapon:

We got to play around with the load outs and of course were able to inspect the weapons and armour to change perks. The interesting bit… Bottom left of the inspect weapon page, below the perk tree, were a line of 3 boxes.

  • Box 1: ‘mod’ box with a load of empty slots
  • Box 2: 'elemental’ box if it was an energy weapon
  • Box 3: 'shader’ box with a load of empty slots

These weren’t exotic weapons, all legendary, so it seems we will have multiple mods and shaders available for legendary guns.

The weapons also had an 'intrinsic’ perk associated with it. So one Better Devils hand cannon could have an intrinsic perk for better all round use, another Better Devils hand cannon could have an intrinsic perk that boosts range.

You’ll all be able to see for yourselves tomorrow but thought I’d share a day early.

Disclaimer: I could be wrong on some of this! Didn’t have much time, just from memory. And apologies if any of this is already known.

Enjoy Guardians!

Edit: Photos from the event -

Edit: Here’s a photo the the weapon inspection screen -

Under where it says 'Weapon Perks’ the square light grey box is the intrinsic perk that can role differently. The rest is the fixed weapon tree that will be the same every time. Under where it says 'Weapon Mods’ the bottom left black box with yellow is any equipped weapon mods. The white/light grey box with a red stripe through it is the shader slot. If it was an energy weapon the element would show in between these two mod boxes as I mentioned.

#2: “Please don’t tell me you’ve shaved off my eyebrows.”

You were focusing on the book in your lap when you heard a groan from the bathroom. You looked up to find your fiancé already looking back at you. Harry was leaning on the door frame with his hand resting on his cheek. “Love? Do you mind lending me a hand?”

Anyone who had the pleasure of meeting Harry would know that he was the biggest klutz in the history of the world. Somehow Harry managed to trip over his own feet or accidentally knock over an entire tower of cupcakes (You still don’t know if your sister ever forgave him for doing that on her birthday). Harry was the definition of uncoordinated but to you? You found it one of the many things you adored about him.

When Louis visited yours and Harry’s newly built house, he had the brilliant idea to take advantage of the beautiful oak tree that was in the backyard. To say things went terribly wrong would be an understatement.

Louis let out a whistle as he knocked on the tree. “Wow. Good call on planting the tree, mate.” Harry nodded his head from beside you. “Yeah. I figured it gives an extra sense of privacy since it’s so big. It’s pretty much blocking the whole house.”

Louis nodded his head as he took a step back. “If I was ten years younger I would be climbing this tree so quickly.” He turned and gave a smile towards you and Harry. “Just imagine how much fun your future kids are going to have with it. Can hang a swing from the branch. Could even build a treehouse.” You leaned your head against Harry’s shoulder as your cheeks blushed. Harry let out a small chuckle as he wrapped his arm around you.

“You know what? Fuck it! I wanna see the view from the top” Louis announced as he started hoisting himself up the tree. Harry’s body perked up. “Let me have a go on it!” Harry agreed. You shook your head as you grabbed Harry’s hand. “Babe, I don’t think it’s a great idea. What if you fall?”

Harry pulled his hand away from you and gave you a reassuring smile. He placed a kiss on your cheek before walking towards the tree. “I will not. I’ll be fine.”

Harry broke his arm.

That meant he had to wear a cast where his entire arm was covered, his fingers sticking out of it. What made matters worse was it was on his dominant side, which meant easy daily tasks was a bit of a struggle for Harry. One thing Harry had to do daily was shave or else the hair along his jaw would get patchy. Since he’s just been relaxing at home, he never felt the need to shave. You didn’t mind. It just tickled whenever Harry had his head in between your-

“I have to shave since I have the premier tomorrow. But I’m having some trouble. Do you mind helping, love?” Harry asked. You shook your head before you put your book down on the night stand table. “Of course, H.”

You walked over to the bathroom to see Harry laid everything that you would need out: shaving cream, a towel, and of course the razor. Harry pecked you lips before he sat down on the closed lid of the toilet. You took the shaving cream and pumped a fair amount before you turned to Harry and ran it across his cheeks and underneath his nose. The whole time Harry was making the most ridiculous faces, earning a smile from you. You grabbed the razor and pointed it towards him. “You better stop before I accidentally cut you.” Harry chuckled as he raised up his hands in defense. “Sorry, love.”

You giggled before you carefully started to shave Harry’s face. It was quiet in the bathroom. You were trying to focus while Harry was looking up at you. He just couldn’t believe someone as beautiful as you agreed to marry someone like him. Whatever the reason, he wasn’t going to question it.

You took your time shaving Harry’s face. You wanted to make sure you got every hair and made sure you didn’t hurt him. You bit your bottom lip in concentration before your eyes glanced at Harry’s. Harry smiled up at you. “Please don’t tell me you’ve shaved off my eyebrows” Harry said quietly. You let out a small chuckle and shook your head no. “Course not. That would mean I would have to draw them on for you each time we want to go out” you remarked just as quietly. You went back to running the razor across Harry’s jaw when suddenly he said, “I love you.”

You smiled before you leaned down and gave him a small kiss. “I love you.”

ugh. me before you feels lol let me know what you guys thought! make sure to send in your own request off the drabble list!

you can find the rest of my writing here


So I didn’t know if anyone thought of this yet but I think I found a solution to the dilemma of why we can’t be ghouls in Fallout!

Ok so you know how there’s quite a few perks on our Perk Tree that allow us to be super rad resistant?

What if after obtaining every level of every perk that allows rad resistance, a quest opens up where your companion notices the change in you recently.

And you hear from a local that someone else had the same symptoms as you, and ghoulification is drawing near, causing the resistance.

You seek out this person and find out there could be a serum that halts this process.

You continue the quest line to the place of the serum’s origins (and much like the serum for the Vault 81 disease) there’s only one left and no way to make more.

From that moment you can either choose to heal yourself or the person who helped you get there (giving a lore reason as to why you might not save yourself) and from then on if you don’t take the serum, the next time you sleep for 24 hours you wake up aesthetically a ghoul.

I think it’d work out pretty well!

Genre: Greek Mythology AU, Humor, Romance, Fluff

Warnings: none

A/N: The first part is here! I’m having a lot of fun with this AU. I may or may not screw around with myths’ storylines. Also, sorry for all the confusing names here. I tried to identify everyone but you may have to look up somebody. This combines my two favorite things: my boys and greek myths, so it’s sure to be fun time. This chapter is more to establish the setting, so please forgive any messy characterizations. Let me know what you think!

Hey! :D Hc for Haldir with a young, exuberant, really affectionate (human) S/O pretty please?


-A the very beginning he was wary of getting involved with a human. But their exuberance drew him in far too close. He just couldn’t help himself as he decided to take the risk. He asked for your hand to court. 

-Because he adores you so much, he’s constantly buying you things from places far and wide in the world, including circlets, books, dresses, shoes. He’d bring you a whole cow if he thought it’d make you happy. 

-Anyone that sees the two of you together would know immediately that he loves you. Just by the way he looks at you. 

-He loves your energy, most of the time, he can get crabby because he’s old. Just pace yourself with the rambunctiousness. 

-He might get to thinking about your mortality too much and it’s hard to snap him out of it but you seem to always manage. Ask him to teach you how to climb a tree. He’ll perk right up. 

-When climbing, he may show off. Just a little bit. It’s cute tho so you welcome it. 

-Haldir is almost too protective of you. He may take advantage of the fact that you’re barely an adult by human standards and tell you what to do. It’s annoying but sometimes it’s for the best as you’d probably be dead if he didn’t watch you like a hawk. 

-You’re also not getting alcohol on his watch. Nor are you climbing trees without him. OR using weapons. 

-Even if you’re a mortal, you’re a damn good one. 

-When you eventually pass, he never marries or loves another. He’s extremely sad and it’s likely that he’ll fade away. 

-In a happy ending Illuvatar grants you immortality and the two of you live eternity happy as little clams.

I had a really good idea of how to combine these two so I did! I remember something about Marco’s parents being emotionally distant. So that made me think that maybe sometimes they say things that make Marco sad, but they aren’t close enough to know and they don’t know they hurt him. So I combined these and write this! Enjoy!


“Hey Marco? Are you okay? You’ve been quiet.” Tom said, moving closer to his boyfriend. Marco shrugged and kept tangling and untangling his fingers. “Marco? What’s up? I know something’s wrong, I can read you like the back of a book.” Tom crossed his arms and looked proud. Marco giggled a little at Tom’s comment and shrugged again.

“I just don’t have anything to say.” Marco mumbled.

“That’s a lie! It’s Wednesday! You always have a lot to say on Wednesday because the new episode of your favorite TV show aired last night! You always tell me what happened in full detail and I’m waiting to know.” Tom crossed his arms and pouted like a child for humorous effect. This earned a laugh from Marco and he moved closer to Tom, his giggle stopped and he looked sad again though.

“I don’t want to annoy you. I always go off on a tangent and talk for over an hour.” Marco told Tom. Tom nodded.

“Yeah you do. And it’s my favorite hour.” Tom beamed. Marco blushed a bit.

“I’m being annoying.” Marco said again. Tom tilted his head and watched Marco push his fingers together a bit more aggressively.

“Hey… where is this coming from?” Tom asked. “You always get so excited to tell me about the new episode. I don’t think you’re annoying.” Tom promised. Marco frowned and looked away, he seemed really torn up about something. “Marco, please tell me, you know I want to know. If I didn’t I wouldn’t be asking and prying so much.” Tom assured. Marco sighed, but looked up at Tom with a soft smile.

“I was… doing that thing I do. I was just info dumping with my dad in the room and he asked me if I did that around you. I said yes and then…” Marco trailed off and got a really sad look in his eyes. “He said not to do that around you because I was being annoying and you may not want to hang around me.” Marco cried. Tom gasped and pulled him into a hug, hushing him.

“Marco! That’s not true! That’s the furthest thing from true!” He exclaimed. “I don’t think you’re annoying at all!” Tom promised. He then looked very angry. “And nobody, ESPECIALLY your parents, should ever call you such a horrible thing!” Tom cried. “I love hearing you info dump! It’s cute and you get so excited and you have interesting things to say!” Tom explained. He blushed and looked away. “I get sad when you’re quiet, I feel like you don’t wanna talk to me anymore.” Tom admitted. “I know that’s silly but… I can’t help these little anxieties.” He laughed a little at himself and Marco smiled.

“I understand that feeling.” He assured. Marco gave Tom a big hug around the waist and smiled against him. “Thank you Tommy. Thank you so much.” He told the demon. “That means a lot to me.” Marco admitted. Tom smiled. He held Marco for a long time after that and finally the human sat up. “I don’t think my dad knew what he was saying, I think he was just info dumping like I do. And he said something he didn’t mean to say without thinking.” Marco suggested. Tom smiled, Marco always saw good in people and wanted to help. It was an amazing quality he wished he had. But as of now, Tom was raging over what Marco’s father did to him.

“Tell him he hurt your feelings and I’m sure it will work out.” Tom smiled. He didn’t have a lot else to say. Because in his opinion that was a horrible thing to say to your child. Mr. Diaz seemed like such a nice man, but he at times could have no filter. And that was what happened, so he just so happened to blab something that Marco was particularly sensitive about. But Tom didn’t really look that deep into it, he saw his father made marco this insecure and wanted to attack. But he knew better than to let that feeling control him, so he just focused on being there for Marco for now.

“You feel better now that you talked about it?” Tom asked. Marco nodded and smiled.

“Yeah.” He mumbled, still hugging Tom close and burying his face in his shirt. “Can I tell you about the new episode now?” Marco asked, giggling a little. “It was really good and I really wanted to tell you all about it.” Marco blushed. Tom perked up quite a bit and got comfortable, watching Marco intently.

“Yes! I’ve been excited too.” Tom blushed. Marco smiled and jumped to face the demon.

“Okay so it started out when Finn washed up on this island. He was still separated from Jake and Susan at this point.” Marco started. He continued telling Tom all about it while Tom beamed, watching him with wonder. His ears kept perking forward with curiosity, like he really wanted to hear what he was saying. Mostly Tom loved how happy Marco seemed to talk to him. He was flattered and interested, it really was the best hour of his week. Marco continued and Tom giggled when he began flapping his hands excitedly.

Marco giggled, embarrassed. “Stop laughing!’ He giggled.

“I can’t help it you’re so cute!” Tom exclaimed. “Keep telling me about the episode though!” Tom told him. Marco then remembered.

“Oh yeah! Where was I?” He asked.

“Finn just got caught in the trap in the tree.” Tom reminded. Marco perked up again and continued talking about the new episode, while Tom watched and listened with curiosity. The best hour of the week.

It’s a tad short so sorry but I hope you enjoy!

“Newt! What in the name of Deliverance Dane were you thinking!?” Tina whisper-yells at Newt. 

You wince at the sharpness in her tone. You didn’t blame her for being mad, and she probably could have lived the rest of her life without seeing you and Newt naked in the case. You knew what you did with Newt was wrong but, something about him seems so familiar.  

“Here honey” Queenie says holding out some spare clothes and a mug of cocoa in her hands. 

“Thank you Queenie” you mumble. You put on the clothes and sit back down on the bed. You can hear Newt and Tina arguing outside Newt’s shed. 

“Queenie, do you think what I did was a horrible thing?” you ask. 

“Well, you two did have a real special connection.” She says, “But, you are engaged” she continues. 

You put your face in your hands. 

“I know, I know” you murmur. You stand up and start walking towards the door. 

“Where are you going honey?” Queenie asks. 

“I’m going to walk around the case, maybe something will jog my memory” you answer. 

You slip by Newt and Tina who were still deep in conversation. You walked over to some tree, green stick creatures were on the tree. One perked up when it saw you and started crawling over to you. 

“Why hello there” you say to the little creature who was now on your hand. You stared at it for a while, making some light small talk. 

“Well you better go back to your tree little one” you tell it.

You move your hand towards the tree but the creature scampers up your arm and sits on your shoulder. 

“Oh alright. You can stay with me” you say. 

You hear chirping coming from across the tree. A nest lays parallel. You walk and peer into the nest. Little blue dragon beasts curled up like a spring were chirping at you. You cupped your hands and placed them down next to one of the creatures. It slithered into your hand and looks at you. You bring it closer to your face and smile while it keeps chirping at you. 

You wanted to pet it but something in the back of your mind said no. You didn’t know why but you listened to your head and set the little creature down. A shiny glint caught your eye. Curious, you walked over to discover what was causing the light. You were met with a chubby mole, platypus looking thing. You let out a tiny squeal, 

“Aren’t you just the cutest” you gush. 

You held out your hands and the creature jumped into your hands. You brought it to your chest and started scratching its belly. The beasts started pawing at the necklace chain you had. 

“Careful y/n, he may look adorable but he’s a little bugger” Newt says. 

You look up and see Newt leaning against the little guys habitat. 

“What is this thing?” you ask, still petting him. 

“He’s my Niffler. Nasty little pest” Newt replies. Newt holds out his hands for the niffler but the niffler just stares at him before turning back to you. 

“They really love you Y/n” Newt says. 

“I guess they do” you answer. You hear a tiny noise and look to your shoulder. The green creature sits happily. 

“You found my bowtruckles I see, Finn still remembers you” Newt observes. You give him a confused look. 

“Oh right, um before you lost your memory you made quite the impact on my creatures.” Newt says sadly. 

You stay silent, you wanted what you used to have with Newt but you just didn’t remember what that was. You could see he really cared for you. 

“I feel like I already know all of them” you admit, “This place, it’s like another home” Newt meets your gaze. 

“You know y/n, my animals could really use another parent” Newt confesses. 

“What?” you ask. 

“Come with me. We could go to England. They don’t have the same rules about muggles like here” Newt pleads. 

“W-what? Newt, My life is here. My things, my fiance for gods sake” you exclaim. 

“We can get your things, I-I need you y/n. You can’t tell me you didn’t feel anything last night. I am so in love with you. I won’t lose you again.” Newt says. 

You stand there in confusion. You didn’t have a job, your family didn’t live here but, Jason. You still had a life with him. 

“Newt, I love you I truly do but, I can’t just ditch my fiance the day before our wedding. I mean, I know he’s busy a lot but…I still love him too” you admit. Newt’s face fell, the tiny hope he had vanished. 

“You’re right, it was a stupid Idea anyway” he says sadly. 

He turns and starts to walk away. You felt torn. You could go home, get married to a man who doesn’t pay any attention to you or you could run away with a man you forgot about but you slept together and you felt some sort of connection. 

“Newt wait” You call out. He stops and turns around. 

“I-I’ll go with you” you say. 

Newt starts walking closer, “You will?” he asks. 

“Ill go to England with you” you repeat. 

A smile appears on his face, he runs to hug you but you stop him. 

“Newt! Niffler!” you say looking at the ball of fur in your arms. 

“Oh right sorry” Newt takes the niffler and puts him back in his burrow. He takes Finn off your shoulder and places him on his tree. 

“Now” Newt pulls you into a hug. 

“Oh how I love you y/n” he says. 

“I love you too Newt, I don’t need the past memories. I know now that I love you so much” you confess. 

Newt crashes his lips onto yours. You melted into his kiss and place your hands on the back of his neck. 

“But Newt, how are we supposed to get past MACUSA?” you ask. 

“We’ll find away, I promise” He reassures you. 

“I can’t believe I’m running away from my wedding with a wizard with a magical suitcase because it’s against magical law” you mumble to yourself. 

“Yeah but you love me” Newt jokes. He takes your hand and you start walking over to Tina and Queenie. 

“Are you ready to get yelled at by Tina?” you tease still holding on tight to Newt’s hand. 

“As long as I get to stay with you, I’ll take a million scoldings” Newt says dramatically. 

“How cliche” you say.

 Newt rolls his eyes and walks over to Tina. It might have been cliche but at this point, you could care less. You were together again and that’s all that mattered. 

This was so cringy I’m sorry. But this is the end of the Dream series. Hope yall liked it. 

in a heartbeat

LAMS AU BC @whatsonmyknee WANTED IT

There’s a freckled boy with curly brown hair in a ponytail at he back of his head, and he’s running from something. He turns around and his eyes widen as, in a moment of sheer stupidity, he leaps like fucking Bugs Bunny into the bushes to his left.

   When John peers over the shrubs there’s a boy in a green sweater with the sleeves rolled up to his elbows - it looks like mine! - walking past with his brown eyes hidden behind rectangular glasses. He’s rolling an apple in his hand and John smiles like Alexander Hamilton had hung the stars.

   He quickly climbs the tree next to him (thanks mom) and looks over the branch he clings onto. John sighs and rests his chin against his folded arms with a goofy smile plastered upon his face, his freckled cheeks turning pink. John grabs a knot in the wood and raises himself higher only to clonk his head on a branch above him, and he quickly sets footing on the branch under him and hides behind the thick trunk of the tree.

   Alexander’s ears perk and he turns around, his marvelous brown eyes scanning the greens behind him. He’d heard something, a knock on wood you might say, but thinks little of it and turns back around, taking a bite of his apple.

   John’s heart thrums in nervousness in his chest, and he quickly slaps his hand over where it’d be. It gets harder to keep it in, then his heart leaps from his chest and jumps into Alexander’s hand that previously had an apple in it.

   “No, no, no!” John hisses, trying to signal to his Heart to get the fuck back into his chest, but it has a rather strong pull for an organ. “Please, no!”

   He jumps from the tree stupidly and lands on his ass, which rather hurts. John grunts as he gets up and hurries toward Alexander, and, as much as he’d like to avoid it, is forced to talk to the bespectacled boy.

   “Uh, eh - h-hi, Alexander,” John stammers, his eyes still on his Heart in Hamilton’s hand.

   “Oh,” Alex says, eyes moving up to see the most adorable boy’s he’s ever laid eyes on since Jefferson, which ended up going to shit, “hey. You’re in History class, right? With Washington?”

   “Yes…” John nods, slowly trying to move forward and grab his Heart from Alexander’s hand. 

   Alex leans back a bit, slightly freaked by the freckled boy’s actions. “What… are you doing?”

   “Noth - shit!” John yelps, moving around Alex to get his Heart on the pages of his book. It moves around the bespectacled boy and John follows it - he looks ridiculous - and ends up catching it while being nose-to-nose with Alexander Hamilton.

   John’s blushing, and Alex is slightly flustered, and John hears footsteps approaching so he quickly jumps behind a bush, which seems to be a thing today, leaving Alex to stand there and wave awkwardly to Angelica Schuyler. The brunette with a ponytail slowly moves to peer behind the shrub when the bell rings and he’s forced to enter the walls of Albany.

   His Heart moves forward - zips forward, really - and John attempts to steer away but his Heart leads him to the doors. John falls forward, on his face, leaving it sooty, dirty and with a few scratches, and his grip loosens on his Heart, giving the organ an advantage and letting it slip through the just closing doors.

   “Eek!” cries John Laurens, who stumbles up the steps, only to be met with his heart nuzzling against Alexander Hamilton’s immaculate face.

   John makes quick work and grabs his Heart by the hand he didn’t know it had. His heart squeaks - it can do that? - and latches onto Alexander’s finger, which begins the wave of stares and whispers.

   John knows, when he sees the Schuyler sisters’ faces molded into alarm, Gilbert and Hercules’ shock, and Charles Lee’s and Samuel Seabury’s smug faces, that he should have listened to his dad and not pursued Alexander. But, as evident in the current situation, the Heart wants what It wants.

   John and Alex wince as the freckled boy pulls, cracking the organ a bit down the middle. John closes his eyes and his face contorts into sadness and hesitation as he quickly tears the Heart - both in half and from Alex’s hands - and runs out the door.

   Alex is left in a state of shock as the freckled boy runs out of the double doors. “Alexander, are you alright?” Elizabeth Schuyler asks, tugging her friend Maria by the hand.

   Alex says nothing in reply and quickly gets up to follow John Laurens.

   John hears footsteps coming his way and peers around the trunk to see Alexander Hamilton, who also sees him by the time the curly-haired boy ducks back behind the tree trunk. Too late. Again.

   Alex says nothing as he reaches to take the half of the Heart from John’s hand, but the freckled boy flinches back in his state of nerves.

   “C’mon,” Alex coaxes with a small, lopsided smile. “It isn’t Frozen.”

   John gives a frazzled smile and opens his clasped hands, letting Alex fit the two halves together. Alex takes a seat on the ground beside John and they smile at each other as the Heart in John’s hand glows a brighter pink, and comes back to life with a smile on Its face.

   The two boys smile at each other warmly, and Alex begins to feel a thrum in his chest, too.

50 Lessons I Learned From Books

1. If you have access to a Time Turner, definitely use that to fix your major life threatening problems, instead of waiting for say, four more years to see if things get worse.

2. Bad days happen. Even in Australia.

3. If there’s a guy who throws really jazzy parties and calls himself great, he’s probably over compensating.

4. You can’t only take, you must also give.

5. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities.

6. Books you read at just the right age, moment, or time never, ever leave you.

7. A golden ticket doesn’t solve all your problems.

8. In your life, you can be both happy and sad, and still wonder how that could be.

9. To truly know a person, you have to consider things from their point of view. Climb into their skin; walk around in it for a bit. Most people are nice if you get to know them.

10. Mockingbirds don’t do anything but make beautiful music for us to enjoy.

11. There are no ducks in Central Park in the winter.

12. It may not be universally acknowledged, but sometimes, love is right in front of you.

13. Good friends will bring you through anything.

14. The nice thing about the Museum of Natural History is that nothing ever changes, even though you do.

15. You’ll think of it tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day.

16. Always check the back of your closet to make sure you’re not missing out on anything cool.

17. Sometimes, unrequited love is as real and unattainable as a light shining on a faraway dock.

18. Every hero needs a sidekick.

19. The nervous, nerdy kid can win the fearless, brilliant girl’s heart.

20.  “Salutations” is a fancy way of saying hello.

21. All children, except one, grow up.

22. If you let high school kids self-govern themselves, the stuff will hit the fan.

23. If someone grants you one wish, don’t use it to go to Disneyland.

24. You can fight monsters and still be home in time for supper.

(Fun) Things You Might Have Missed in DA:I (Part 2)
  • Sulevin Blade: Very easy to miss when exploring Emprise Du Lion. When exploring north-east of Valeska’s Watch, north of the Deep Road entrance and west of a ruined tower, you should run across a camp with an elven corpse. The note on the corpse opens up a War Table mission, which in turn opens up a Temple and then a quest to gather pieces of the broken sword. All so Dagna can draw up a Greatsword design with a range of 305-319 DPS from the pieces and have it replaced.
  • Disband or Conscript?: One of the biggest issues that most players have is siding against their preferred allies in the Mage/Templar war. Pro-Mage choosing to do “In Hushed Whispers” and Pro-Templars do “Champion of the Just”. However, if you do ever want to play the other quest, whether to see Ser Barris or just check out the Elder One’s other ally, it can be done without truly siding with the opposite enemy. It is actually possible to conscript/enslave the mages if you play “In Hushed Whispers” as a Pro-Templar, sending them back to the Circles with a new fraternity if you chose the right Divine at the end of Inquisition. While Pro-Mage players can actually disband the Templars and consume them as soldiers of the Inquisition instead.
  • Cole in Haven: Maybe I’m wrong about this one, but usually when I finish the Mage/Templar quest I’ll instantly start the next story quest and miss this one. If you do that too, after completing “Champions of the Just” Don’t. After recruiting the Templars, Cole can actually be talked to near the merchants stand in Haven. It’s a good chance to get to know him, before going to Skyhold.
  • Thanking the Iron Bull: This isn’t anything big, I just thought everyone would like to know, that a couple of Chantry Sisters discuss thanking the Iron Bull profusely last night…right outside the Haven Chantry.
  • Inquisitor Lyrium Contacts: I highly recommend everyone grab the first perks in the Forces, Secrets, and Connections perk trees as early as possible, the perks that add dialogue choices. There are many dialogue choices I love using that come from those perks. One minor use is after gaining your Templar or Mage companions, the Inquisitor can offer up some lyrium contacts of their own. Which is just a nice piece of roleplay material, for the less than “rule-abiding” Inquisitors (specifically Adaar and Cadash).
  • Quick Rebuild of Skyhold: I loath having to wait to get access to the Inquisitor’s room to use their Wardrobe, so I’ve found a bit of a cheat. If you have a high enough friendship with Solas, so much so that he takes you into the Fade, then this will automatically unlock the Inquisitor’s bedroom (for the obvious reason that’s where Solas leaves them to sleep) and much of the rest of Skyhold. It’s just a quick way to get in and change out of grey pjs, if they don’t suit you.
  • Garden Meetings: Always check the Skyhold Garden, interesting people end up there. Including Ser Michel and Fairbanks. Also be sure to check the bushes on the right side of the Garden, for some reason they love to hide in them? I recommend going to talk to Mother Giselle there after Adamant too, she has interesting dialogue; especially if you are not Andrastian and/or have denied being divinely chosen.
  • Scattered in Skyhold: After gaining the “Enhanced Studies” perk from the War Table, be sure to check the second floor of the rotunda, across the rail from Dorian should be an elven researcher looking for 48 copies of Hard in Hightown…y e a h. Anyways, the 48 copies will be all around Skyhold as a little scavenger hunt. Which the one in the Garden will sometime glitch in midair. To grab it, jump from the top of the stairs, repeatedly pressing the interact button on the way down.
  • Vivienne and the Andrastian Throne: This one I found just the other day, if you are good friends with Vivienne and use the Andrastian throne. During her one dialogue, instead of saying the Inquisitor has good tastes in thrones, she will say that she appreciates the Inquisitor’s eyes for symbolism.
  • Skyhold: Elven Imagery: Again, another fun thing of note rather than something worth checking out. Besides Solas’ elven art-form in Skyhold, there are a few other note-worthy pieces. In Blackwall’s barn, there is actually a depiction of the Halla Mother and Mother of all Beasts, Ghilan'nain with a mighty bear. While owl imagery (associated with both Falon’Din and Andruil) pop up in several places within Skyhold.
  • Speak with Hawke’s Warden: After finding Hawke’s Warden in Crestwood, you can return to Skyhold and speak with them on the ramparts where you met Hawke.
  • Josephine’s Rumors: I haven’t gotten to explore this with other romances yet, but a romanced Josephine is apparently a popular source of gossip in Val Royeaux. Though it’s not always good gossip and I’m sure Leliana wracks up quite a body count, with as many times as the question on whether Josephine has been “fade-touched” by the Inquisitor comes up.
  • Crossroads Agents: The mission mark doesn’t always come up for this, but once you’ve helped everyone in the Hinterlands’ Crossroad be sure to talk to Corporal Vale again! He will actually give you the chance to recruit more agents and gain more power/influence/experience.
  • Quizquisition: So randomized that it is very easy to miss. If you are lucky enough you may find a strange man popping up over Skyhold asking you questions regarding DA:I lore, for something he calls the Quizquisition. If you answer enough of his questions (three of them) he will actually give you a giant spoon to hit things with…(Greatsword: 220 DPS). The easiest way to find the Quizquisitor is to acquire the “Elite Clientele” Perk from the War Table and then find him in the basement vault, returning after leaving Skyhold as many times as needed.
  • The Verchiel March/Friends in High and Low Places: Remember the point earlier about how I highly recommend the conversation perks? This is another good reason for it. When you go to complete Sera’s Personal Quest, “The Verchiel March”, the only real way to gain approval from Sera is to have her beat the fellow up and discard an alliance (or piss off Sera and gain a noble ally). Which for one of my characters would never have been an option. However, if you happen to have the “Nobility Knowledge” perk, then you can gain approval from Sera and force the noble to work for you. Sera is happy you embarrassed and essentially robbed from the noble, and Lord ass-kiss Harmond is just happy to have his life and reputation (but not his lands). All ends well and my character stayed perfectly in-character.
