Rest in mcfreaking pieces Jack. Trust exercise, escaping from an enemy; you can create the scene/events leading up to this. I’m far too lazyto draw their fullbodies and I really don’t have the time to obsess over anatomy, this is as good as it gets
I love how the further Dragon Age progresses as a series, the more retroactively badass everything the warden did in the first game becomes.
I mean, the guy you pulled out of a cage can become the freaking Arishok. That odd woman you meet in the tavern and decide to bring along can become Divine Victoria. Alistair can be king. That witch who turned into a dragon when you fought her was actually an ancient elven god. If we count Dragon!Andraste and the arch demon, that’s three potential dragon gods you can kill in that game.
You manage to resolve tense political situations that would take other groups months of efforts and tons of diplomatic resources and military presence with just yourself, your colourful band of misfit/murderous companions, and your dog. In under a year.
You can even make friends with one of those insane darkspawn magisters that almost destroys the world in DA:I. Just like, palling around with him. Swapping notes. Doing trust building exercises while everyone else is losing their shit over Corypheus.
And it’s just hilarious because the Hero of Ferelden is this person who some of the most powerful individuals in Thedas will actually fall in line behind, this ridiculously competent and influential figure who solves world-ending problems like they’re Sunday morning crosswords, and it’s going to be useless in the coming crisis because they can’t bring the warden back.
I had these Hinatas in my sketchbook too!
They have some exchange with Nekoma. Kenma and Hinata clicks super well, and do a lot of really cool trust exercises together! Kags tries to learn the basics too.
Suga is way too smart for his own good, constantly pickpockets and unlock his stall.
Plot: Dan and Phil didn’t really know each other in school. Their teacher makes them do a trust exercise, which leaves Dan literally in Phil’s arms.

“Okay, class. We’re going to do a trust exercise today,” the teacher, Ms. Wespen, spoke from the front. Phil smiled, he was ready. He leaned forward in his seat, due to the anticipation. “You’ll need partners for this, and I’ve already chosen them,” Ms. Wespen started rambling off names and who their partners are. “…And last but not least, Phil Lester, your partner is Dan Howell,” she finished.
Phil was fine with that. Dan and him never really talked, but he couldn’t complain. He definitely could have had a worse partner, like Smelly Joe, or Sticky Stephen. The teacher instructed them to spread out around the room with their partners close to them.
“Hey, Dan,” Phil walked over to the chestnut haired boy. “I’m Phil.” Dan noticed Phil had raven hair, and a smile that resembled actual joy itself. Phil reminded Dan of sunshine.
“Hello,” Dan nodded, stood up, and followed Phil to a corner in the room.
“Right, now you’re going to fall into your partner’s arms, for a trust exercise,” Ms. Wespen explained. Phil smiled, and held out his arms to Dan.
“No,” Dan looked at Phil and drew out the ‘o.’
“Yes,” Phil replied, smirking.
“No,” Dan drew out the ‘o’ again.
“You’re the one that has to fall,” Phil smiled.
“No, that’s not a good idea,” Dan disagreed. They stared at each other for a few seconds before Dan gave in and turned around, his back faced Phil. “I’m actually scared,” Dan put his arms up.
“You can do it!” Phil encouraged.
“Phil, you better-”
“I’m going to catch you!” Phil interrupted Dan. Dan paused. “Fall.”
“Oh my god,” Dan panicked.
“Fall,” Phil repeated. Dan slowly fell backwards, and began screaming while he was going down. It was so high-pitched, it made Phil chuckle. Phil caught Dan, and started pushing him back up.
“Oh my god, oh my god,” Dan kept repeating, obviously shocked he didn’t collapse onto the ground.
“That scream was incredible,” Phil chuckled.
“You caught me!” Dan yelled. “I didn’t die!”
“Yeah!” Phil exclaimed. Dan and Phil high fived, and thus began a beautiful friendship.
