Do you ever think about the fact that it’s canon Anders swam from the Circle of Magi tower to the Spoiled Princess, a distance which, in the Dragon Age books seems to be about an hour to two hour trip by boat, trying to get free from the Circle?
People don’t do that sort of shit for funzies.
You do that sort of thing because you’re desperate.
This was already making me sad, until I reminded myself that at the time of this particular escape, Anders was still an apprentice. As in, he probably hadn’t even hit twenty yet, at the very oldest, and was likely more in the ballpark of around fifteen or sixteen.
It should tell you something about both Anders and the Circle that, as a teenager, he was willing to swim over an hour, just so he could get a shot at freedom.
And for what? It’s not like he had anyone waiting for him out there. He was a sixteen year old in a foreign country who knew next to no one outside of the Circle. His family was thousands of miles away and/or didn’t even want their mage child back.
He didn’t know what he would eat, where he would sleep, how he would evade the templars, and whether or not they would just brand him a malificar and run him through, like they did to Aneiren. And he couldn’t rely on other people, since there’s a good chance that most of them would just turn him in to the nearest chantry, where he’d be marched straight back to the Circle in chains. He was basically running blind with a wolf snapping at his heels the whole way.
And he still considered this better than staying in the Circle.
Hi guys I am open for commissions now since I am growing to a desperate need for money. My sister and I need to get our computers fixed that have been broken for half a year (I am going out of my mind) and our dad has been having trouble at work so it seems to be going in the direction of not getting the computers fixed and possibly not even being able to get Dragon Age Inquistion when it comes out.
So please if you are interested message me on my main blog Renrenkii or check out my art tag here.
A colour piece will probably be with markers or coloured pencils though since I don’t have my computer, which has photoshop on it.
It’s also an added 3 dollars for two characters.
If you want a writing commission done please go to my sister, Cocofels, here.
I would greatly appreciate a friendly signal boost as well <3 Thank you everyone.
P.s I will only draw things relative to this list:
(Ask me for more details)
You would pay my sister on her paypal at email@example.com
