why didn't they ever happen

The Gatson song except with Varric

Hawke: 

Gosh it disturbs me to see you Varric, looking so down in the dumps,

Every guy here’d love to be you Varric, even when taking your lumps.

There’s no man in town as admired as you, you’re everyone’s favorite guy.

Everyone’s awed and inspired by you, and it’s not very hard to see why….

*three girls fall at Varric’s feet*

Hawke: 

No…one’s…slick as Varric,

No one’s quick as Varric, 

No one neck’s as incredibly thick as Varric

No one in town’s half as manly,

Perfect a pure paragon.

You can ask any Tom, Dick or Stanley,

And they’ll tell you who’s team they’d prefer to be on….

The Hanged Man Taverngoers:

No…one’s…

Been like Varric,

A kingpin like Varric

No one’s got a swell cleft in his chin like Varric

Varric:

As a specimen yes I’m intimidating

Tavern: 

My what a guy what a guy that Varric.

Hawke:

Varric is the best and the rest is all drips

Tavern:

No… one… fights like Varric

Douses lights like Varric

In a wrestling match nobody shoots like Varric

Girls:

For there’s no one as burly and brawny

Varric:

As you see I have biceps to spare

Hawke:

Not a bit of him scraggly or scrawny

Varric:

That’s right!

And every last inch of me’s covered in hair!

Tavern:

No…one…

Hits like Varric

Matches wits like Varric

Hawke: 

In a witting match nobody wits like Varric

Varric:

I’m especially good at clever banter

Tavern:

My what a guy that Varric

Varric:

When I was a lad I struck four business deals, and two novel prizes I’d won

But now that I’ve grown I’ve struck ten dozen more and I’m practically a superstar

Tavern: 

No…one 

Snipes like Varric

Makes those beauts like Varric

Hawke:

Then goes stomping around wearing boots like Varric

Varric: 

I use Hawke in all of my crazy stories

Tavern:

My what a guy…

anonymous asked:

same anon about near here - thanks for your answer! now i do wonder though, how strange is that...? i mean, near was number one student at Wammy's, surely L must've tried to meet him personally at least once, why didn't that ever happen, in your opinion?

I’m honestly not sure how passionate L was about meeting his replacements at the canon point in time. While AN asserts he met Mello, main manga canon really makes no mention of him really interacting with any of them.

I think the fact that L hadn’t chosen a successor at the point of his death just shows to demonstrate he really didn’t plan on dying / think he would die. Thus his successors are more like… a distant thought in the back of his head as kids who are not yet relevant because he is still alive. He’s busy with his job, they’re busy with their education and there never was a real need for their paths to cross personally during the Kira case.

109 is a good indicator of how much (or little) L really cared at the time, imo.

For one, he only chose the current potential successor candidates a year before his death and it is pretty much stated that he had no prior knowledge of any of the kids before, so he didn’t even know Mello and Near for that long.

And then, he didn’t even choose them because of their intellect - he chose them because, paraphrased, “they looked kind of like assholes.” That they wound up being the top two students was apparently partially coincidence. L might have made the assumption that they would be based on their observant expressions, but he never went through the trouble of figuring out anything more about them. And then the Kira case starts soon after and has L too busy to really look into successors at all…. and then he dies - there is no real time frame for him to spend extended amounts of time thinking about his successors because it’s not like he was planning in his own death.

I take manga implications over AN here because, as much as I love the novel, I am personally pretty iffy on the implications AN makes about L and Mello characterization - so even if L met Mello, I just don’t feel like he had that much personal investment in his successors as a whole.

It seems more like a matter he was ready to push off because when you’re only 24 you don’t really wanna think about your retirement just yet.

And then time ran out.

So I was opening my refrigerator to get water and was saying to my roommate, “Man, it’s hard to get good ship names for Dragon Age. Like you can’t do it for Fenris and Hawke.”

And then I stopped mid-water gathering and squeaked, “Oh my god. FERRETT." 

And promptly ended up curled on the floor in front of my open fridge convulsing with laughter and tears for about five minutes.
