nonbinaryanders:

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.

After seeing pheberoni ‘s amazing drawing of all of the Dragon Age 2 companions, I knew that i had to draw them all too. Some of them I managed to make look more like their designs than others. Just a quick upload in preparation for something bigger! :D 

My Hawke, Avery, is right next to Anders.

Sketchy Anders of Dragon age sketch. Doing some more elaborate Dragon Age fan art on the side, but vacation and lounging in the pool is taking it’s toll on me, so in the meantime here’s a quick Anders!

Tranquil at the Gallows

freudianhedgehog:

I was compiling a list of Tranquil dialogue from the Gallows a while back, but I don’t think I ever posted it.

Hearing one comment here and there is easy to handwave, but when looking at them as a compilation, it’s really fucking creepy.

These are all copied directly from the talk tables.

Ambient Tranquil mages:

  • Many mages resent the history of the Gallows. It does not trouble me.
  • The first enchanter does not wish me to sell merchandise. He says I am “too honest.”
  • Many more of us have been given the Rite in recent days.
  • Ser Alrik says the Rite of Tranquility is the only thing that can keep the souls of mages from the Void.
  • I do not understand this desire to be free. We are safe and fed. What more can we want?
  • I am glad to stand here day after day. It is… predictable.
  • I am fortunate to be Tranquil. So many mages are plagued by unrest.
  • I was never given the opportunity for a Harrowing. The knight-commander knew I was too weak.
  • The first enchanter has marked up these potions well beyond the cost of making them. He is trying to earn money for the Circle.
  • The anger from our mages is… unsettling. They would all be at peace if Ser Alrik had lived.
  • We must obey the knight-commander. She knows what is best for us.
  • Ser Alrik rescued me from my sins.
  • So many mages here could be brought peace by the Rite. So few have experienced it.

This is a long post, the rest is under the cut.
