-The Pre-Hamilton Lin Manuel Miranda singing a song that’s far out of his range. -The Pre WWII setting of the musical. (Any other situation, I would hate this) -That orchestra though. -The singers leading him into the song and their perfect pitch. -The hum of the VHS camera. - “YOUR CUP OF POISON!” -The idea that simply putting someone in white clothing is the same as them being Jesus. -Why did they cast him as Jesus and not Judas?
I just love this video, and nothing will convince me not to. Maybe one
day I’ll release my full cover of “Agony”, from Into The Woods.
And appreciate the fact that the lone wanderer and sole survivor have something to look for and retrieve (dad and son) and yet the courier is just some asshole wandering around in the desert? It’s like
“Okay, I’ve just been kicked from the vault. My father left a trail of holotapes and the first settlement in my vision is a "Megaton”. Okay, let’s hope I can find him"
“Okay, my spouse is dead, and I think I saw the killer. I’ve exited the vault, and returned to my old home. Codsworth is still here, that’s good. Hopefully he and I can find Shaun.”
But then with Courier 6 it’s like
“ALRIGHT WHICH ONE OF YOU ROOTIN’ TOOTIN DICKHEADS SHOT ME I SWEAR TO GOD IVE SEEN THE F•R•I•E•N•D•S HOLOTAPES AND I KNOW CHANDLER’S VOICE HEY WHO THE FUCK ARE YOU OLD MAN WHAT THE HELL IS THIS TOWN IS THAT A ROBOT WHAT THE HELL IS A LEGION WHO’RE THE NCR WHAT IN CHRIST’S NAME IS HAPPENING HOLY JESUS WHY THE HELL DO I GOTTA GO TO VEGAS”
Malcolm does his impression of Jeremy Corbyn on the morning of June 9, 2017.
And you know how Jeremy Corbyn and Jesus Christ have the same initials? I think that can only mean Dan “Made Entirely of Smarm” Miller was actually a prophet in his own land and he didn’t even know it.
Since 2015 I’ve been wanting to work on an art series where I re-imagine the characters and the world of the Dragon Age series (starting with DA2 since that’s the first one I played) in a post apocalyptic world where instead of magic, dragons and the fade there are genetic enhancements, mutated abominations and cyberspace ( think something like Fallout/Mass effect/Dents)
I’ve never gotten around to actually working on it due to several… life issues. Now that things are less hectic I’m starting it off with Fenris.
Wall of Text incoming:
Post apocalyptic Fenris ( I have no idea what to call this series) is an escaped test subject of a high security laboratory owned by an enhanced(fuck me I can’t do names for shit) known as Danarius. Fenris’ whole body is covered in implants that increase his physical prowess and allow him to phase through solid objects by stepping through what they call cyberspace (Jesus Christ help me name these things)
These implants not only run through his skin but is also embedded into his muscles, bones and his cerebral system causing him great physical discomfort and why he avoids Physical contact with other people as much as possible.
After a field test/encounter gone wrong, Fenris fled to Kirkwall and is then hunted down by his former master’s soldiers. The implants and the several experiments done on him caused him to lose all of his earlier memories, leaving him completely alone in his flight for freedom.
I tried to stay loyal as much as possible to how Fenris originally looks and at the same time address my concerns for his original in-game design. I think that if a runaway slave with snow white hair and glowing tattoos is being manhunted by someone that can afford a private army and a mansion in a distant city, they’re gonna probably try their best to not be spotted by wearing a cloak or hood to cover up the markings and his head. I also thought that the reason you can’t change his outfit/armor is because it’s custom made for him and his markings.
This is still missing a lot of design stuff for Fenris, like his sword for example. It’s not short, it’s retractable. If you’re thinking that the “sheath” won’t be able to hold the blade in place, don’t worry it’s sorta magnetically held in place in the sheath like how the guns in ME3 are held on their backs. I also need to share what his gas mask looks like (cause post apocalyptic world) and how it works (it’s the one he’s carrying on his left leg) and most important of all what Fenris looks like when he uses his implants and when he enters “Ghost” mode. They’re all in separate files and I’ll attempt to finalize and compile them soon.
There are still a lot of things that I need to address like the different races in the DA universe, blood magic, demons and magic in general. So hopefully I find time to be able to do this series continuously cause I’m reaaally excited to work on the illustrations I have planned.

Say ‘Jesus’ and people either get happy, or they get mad. They either smile, or a cloud comes over their faces. They are either elated or irritated. Embarrassed, they try to change the subject or walk away. Or engaged, they pursue deeper conversation and connection. No other name has such potency.
