the el dorado/dragon age ii crossover is not my idea by any means obviously i just wanted to doodle tulio!hawke and miguel!anders ahahaha fuck
someday i will draw chell!fenris
I am squealing
CHEL!FENRIS NEEDS TO BE A THING RIGHT THE FUCK NOW RIGHT NOW RIGHT NOW NOW NOW give him the goddamn earrings~ (Zevran!Chel?)
Ignoring the fact that Isabela would make the most incredibly perfect Chel ever and are they actually the same person? I think they might be.
This crossover just needs to happen, okay, it needs to happen. Tzekel-Khan (BLOOD MAGERY!) and Chief Tannanbok are Orsino and Merideth (except Tanni’s not, you know, psychotic). No, okay, CORTEZ is Merideth. Tanni’s Aveline. The Mabari is Altivo.
Merrill is, obviously, the armadillo.
Idek who Varric would be. :c He can be the storyteller, telling everyone this weird story. At the Hanged Man.
"Did I ever tell you about these two crazy con-men I once knew? Kinda reminded me of you guys. So the story goes, they were gods once, but certain facets of their story might have been… exaggerated…"
The Tale of Sylver’s First Stupid Hawke
My very first playthrough of Dragon Age 2, I did a custom Hawke. Red spiky hair, stubble - and he coincidentally came out looking pretty much MODEL-IDENTICAL to the street punk who nicks Hawke’s money in Varric’s first scene.
If you watch that opening scene, first you see him (the punk) sitting on the ground, watching people. And I was like “oh hey it’s my Hawke, lookin’ fine” and then it switches to Bethany/Carver and Actual Hawke talking, which confused me because wasn’t he just sitting over there?
And naturally it gets weirder, because of course in a few seconds, MY HAWKE IS NOW GETTING ROBBED BY HIMSELF. He is watching his identical twin get pinned to a wall and smacked around by a dwarf.
Needless to say, this… rather confused me. I seriously thought it was a game glitch at first. (Well, I HAD bought my copy pre-owned.)
TA-DAAAHHH. Now you know the story of Sylver’s First Stupid Hawke who looks exactly like a redheaded street punk, and it is now my headcanon that he actually has appeared as that punk in every subsequent playthrough, giving my future Hawkes a hard time.
And maybe he’s in yours too.
Can you feel him? Can you feel my Doppleganger Hawke in your games? He’s there. Watching. Always.
… And with that, I say good night.
And now, for my friend Sylver and for shits and giggles, a completely unfitting Dragon Age 2 tribute.
what am I looking at
I DON’T UNDERSTAND
BUT I LOVE IT. WHAT IS GOING ON.
Although - dude, you’ve never even played dA, have you? My gosh. How did you. even. This is ODDLY FITTING, with Fenris at least, because he, uh, actually is an ex-slave, so. KIND OF A FITTING SONG CHOICE?
what even. I just. am staring and. brain breaking and. what.
<3 You’re awesome. You are insane, and your brain does things my brain does not understand, but you are awesome and thank you for this strange, strange present.
“you will never take another mage as you took him!”
One of many reasons why I ship Anders/Karl mega-hard. (Well. Aside from the fact that they were canonically together. I love it when my OTPs are at least temporarily canon.)
I just. Hnfnngh. ;_; I know it was over by that point in the universe’s timeline, but I just love them. And that they so obviously still cared very deeply for one another.
My headcanon of Karl as a deeply passionate, eccentric, adorkable, excitable, emotional, hotheaded but ultimately optimistic and romantic (in both senses) guy just makes it hurt even more. Nobody deserves Tranquility, but especially not the laughing, vibrant man my imagination conjures up.
Dearest Dragon Age Fans: HAWKE-ULES
I require your help.
I remember a meme going around, Hawke-ules, a combination of Hawke and Disney’s Hercules, with the companions as the Muses. At one point, I saw a few verses of Zero to Hero, re-written for the DA2 cast.
I recall “Bless my soul, Hawke was on a roll, person of the week in every Kirkwall city poll,” and that’s about it.
If there is more that someone’s already done, please share this with me. :3 I want to ensure they get the proper writing credit, and if there isn’t much more, I will take on the JOYFUL DUTY of writing it. :D
I desire this for reasons. Musical reasons. I think you will enjoy.
The romances in the game are not for “the straight male gamer”. They’re for everyone. We have a lot of fans, many of whom are neither straight nor male, and they deserve no less attention. We have good numbers, after all, on the number of people who actually used similar sorts of content in DAO and thus don’t need to resort to anecdotal evidence to support our idea that their numbers are not insignificant… and that’s ignoring the idea that they don’t have just as much right to play the kind of game they wish as anyone else. The “rights” of anyone with regards to a game are murky at best, but anyone who takes that stance must apply it equally to both the minority as well as the majority. The majority has no inherent “right” to get more options than anyone else.
