You are only meant to be a swoony rebound, intended to heal the wound in my heart left by a certain egglord. Stop being so awkward and adorable or I may be forced to love you.

Yours sincerely,

When you fall ass-over-teakettle in love with your own original character.

I wasn't sure who my canon Inquisitor would be, although I had pretty much decided that Shula Lavellan has a twin brother, Andil, who is an archer. At some point, I'll design his face in the character creator. He's getting the mullet in honor of male Dragon Age twins with unfortunate hair and also so that Dorian can meet him with, "Is your hair on purpose?" 

But until yesterday, I hadn't thought of him much. And then on our long drive to my mother's house, that is basically all I thought about.  Having him arrive in Skyhold, soon after Haven is destroyed, to check on his sister.  Wary of humans and terrified of the anchor and what it means, Andil, Dalish and proud (way prouder than Shula ever was), is confused and terrified for his sibling. But he joins the Inquisition, and after a rough initiation, creates a niche for himself within Shula's inner circle, making his own friends, falling in love, etc. 

Andil is the name given to someone from my Dragonborn's past, someone very important to her, a young Bosmer who died when they were 19 years old.  I feel like this is a chance to give him a story he deserves.  

Maker plz

 Every time Andy (spouse) has his Inquisitor flirt with Scout Harding he looks back at me with this big adorable grin on his face. 

He's starting to get it.

 when I will form a more nuanced character analysis.

But it is not this day.

There will come a day when I will understand the lore of Thedas and respond to plot twists appropriately.

But it is not this day

If you haven't played through a Solas romance you might not want to read, but really there are no content spoilers here. It's about the music. 

Petty irritances ahead... )

 I am now 100% completely and totally emotionally compromised by my Inquisition romance.  I even told my husband.

 I am still so far behind in this game and want to read everyone's impressions so badly, though I am exercising restraint in that regard, which is saying something. I'm one of those people for whom spoilers in television, film, and books don't bother me that much. But games are different. In any case, I've got some random thoughts and impressions. No extensive meta or crit just yet as I barely have enough time to play much less devote any writing or thinking time to the game.
