However loving his parents may have seemed, he [Simon] knew that, scratch the surface, and they’d scream and run away. And here he’s confronted with a guy who is just everyting he thinks is wrong about a person, who comes back for him when the chips are down because he’s on his crew. To me, that’s a real parent, and that is an extremely beautiful thing to get to, and I think it’s very real… But the most important thing about ‘Safe’ was that relationship.

Yes, these are my final choices.
No, I’m not sure if they’ll stay that way, though I’m hoping they will, the process was exhausting. But fun!
Yes, I will be doing descriptions for the others like I did with Laeta
No, I will not put my playthough plans up yet, simply because even I haven’t gotten that far.
Yes, that was a lie, of course I’ve gotten that far, but I’m still only certain on 3 of them.
Laeta Lavellan (Warrior/Great Sword) x Iron Bull
Beatrice “Bice” Trevelyan (Mage) x Cullen
Mai Lavellan (Mage) x Solas
Amos Adaar (Mage) x Dorian
Darsc Cadash (Warrior/Axe) x Cassandra
Kendra Trevelyan (Warrior/Shield) x Sera
Osira Cadash (Rogue/Bow) x Josephine
Tully Adaar (Rogue/Daggers) x Blackwall
So a lot of people have been asking about whether or not you need an Origin account to use the Keep and my answer is sort of. I’m more of a visual learner, so I decided to show people what I mean by setting up a Bioware account and syncing your games (the only thing is I do not have/nor feel like setting up at the moment a new console profile to hook up, so that will not have actual visuals).
First, to mention an important bug any console players (particularly Xbox Live members) might run into. Dragon Age Origins connection to the Dragon Age Servers often bugs and produces an error where it will not access the EA servers. This a random bug and the cause is unknown (though is more common with unstable connections), sometimes you will not be able to connect at all for a time and the best advice is just to try at another time.
Now, first you need an Origin/EA or Bioware Account, I prefer Bioware merely because of aesthetic, but they are really the same thing. Merely fill out whichever account you choose (I am using Bioware in this tutorial).
the main eight vallaslin of the pantheon; their simple and advanced versions. merrill and velanna have variations of falon’din and ghilan’nain to set them apart from the other dalish, so i might consider variations as well 8U
Reference for when I roll my Lavellan - craftsmaster it is!
He was wearing a black shirt, khaki shorts, and a backpack with red on it when he left. He’s been missing for 36 hours. Please reblog and spread to your other social medias to help us find him. Use the hashtag #bringtomhome to tag your posts.
Please spread the word, guys. My buddy’s been gone over 36 hours.
I’ve been informed by another friend that this might be even more serious than it already was, so please please please signal boost this and help us find him.
do you ever feel like you’re just sort of
like all your friends go out and do things and get into relationships and like people that like them back and have fun and do stupid things with their best friends and instead of doing all that you’re just sort of this mildly entertaining thing that people take an interest in once in a while but they wouldn’t really care if it was gone
like you just sort of exist but you don’t really mean anything
Class: Warrior (Great Sword)
Loves her people, her clan, her family and would protect them with her life, but has never come across as a “traditional” Dalish elf. Now leading the Inquisition, and yet another family, she will extend to them the same courtesy and loyalty.
She values Cullen’s character, Leliana’s heart, Josephine’s skill, Cassandra’s dedication, Varric’s words, Vivienne’s control, Iron Bull’s spirit, Cole’s kindness, Blackwall’s experience, Sera’s will, Solas’ insight, and Dorian’s resilience.
Battle Skills: An accomplished warrior who opted out of archery during her years as a da’len and instead prefers to wield a great sword that is more often than not, as tall as she is, earning her many strange looks in camp. While the adults viewed this as a form of childish rebellion, a phase that she would eventually grow out of, Laeta herself has simply stated that a bow has never felt right in her hands and would rather be able to protect herself and others strangely yet effectively, rather than “correctly” and badly.
Other Skills: An affinity with animals that goes hand-in-hand with her Dalish upbringing and a surprising talent for wordplay despite her blunt fighting style. Incredibly convincing and persuasive (understandable given how many times she dodged lectures and scoldings from the Keeper) and very much a people person, though not especially naive. She knows there will be much more fighting before this insanity ends, though she still believes in compromise and the illusive third option.
Personality: Typically a very happy person, if a bit annoyingly cheerful (sometimes child-like) at times. Despite the circumstances that brought her to them, Laeta is genuinely enjoying herself in the Inquisition. She gets to see new places, meet new people, experience new things and she finds something she likes and admires in every one of her new companions and advisors. The responsibility she bears is a heavy one indeed and sometimes she needs to step back and catch her breath with a pint, a talk, a ride, but despite the chaos Laeta feels a great sense of satisfaction. If she is going to die, she wants to die knowing she enjoyed what she had as long as possible
Beliefs/Morals: Not devotedly religious, but is open to all possibilities, though she does tend to favor her Creators. While she has great pride and respect for her people’s culture and history, she has never seen the wisdom of the clans’ continuous isolation nor their views of superiority even amongst other Elvhen. Laeta does not believe in blaming the majority for the minority. If a human man were to wrong her, it would be that man she would blame, not humans in general. She sees people rather than labels and wants to help others see as well. She knows the world needs to change in order for there to be any hope for that happening. Laeta’s biggest belief? The illusive, idealistic, “impossible” third option. She won’t accept no-win scenarios or choosing one extreme over another. There is always another way.
History: Laeta has a thirst for stories and adventure that cannot be quenched. Before she earned her vallaslin she would often break away from the clan whenever they were close to a settlement, a caravan or camp. She would say she was going hunting, but would instead steal away to visit whomever was near provided they were friendly. Often posing as an “innocent and lost/traveling” city elf or simply choosing to watch from the trees, Laeta listened to everything from legends to rumors, from cultural differences to current events. This became more difficult to do after she became of age with her blood writing marking her as Dalish, making her a much less trustworthy visitor. Since then, she has been much less in the know, but she keeps her ear to the ground at all times. What affects the rest of the world, affects the clans, this she knows no matter how much the Keeper tries to pretend otherwise.
Love Interest: Iron Bull. She enjoys his company and is determined to know him, pushing where she will but letting him come to her when he chooses. At first slightly concerned he’d end up breaking her, Laeta quickly proved that she’s much stronger than she looks, in more ways than one. He may see her as a passing interest for now, but just wait. By being everything he does not expect (tiny yet strong, Dalish yet open-minded, caring yet not confining), Bull will slowly lose his heart to this merry little bird.
