You had a vision they couldn't see so
They put you down
But everything that you said would happen
It came around
And they're the ones that put you down
Cause they got no heart
But I'm the one that will follow you
You're my Joan of Arc
I have a lot of feelings about Dragon Age 2, and while most of them are negative, the relationship between my m!Hawke and Anders is something that I feel very, very strongly positive about. The stained glass tells their story.
I had thought I was done with this little batch of commissions, and then this one comes along…someone wanting me to illustrate a moment from one of my own bits of writing? How could I possibly resist that? :D
I am a helpless fangirl of bioware’s Dragon Age series, and have no shame about it. I even wrote a 12 chapter story around it called Sign of the Maker; because I’m insane and because fan fiction is stupid amounts of fun. This image here is taken from the beginning of the sequel to that story: Hand of the Maker. It’s taken me ages, but I’m finally working on it again, and having someone actually commission me to draw a moment from it was kind of amazing. ^_^
Just all my heartfelt laughter all the way. I LOVE you guys!!
I know I missed some, I already started a second post with more of this amazing meme collection.
Why does no one appreciate the sweaters?
It’s time to bring this back.
*throws hat down* i’ve done it i drew them
Sail away with me honey
I put my heart in your hands
Commission: Dragon Age
"A smell. What kind of a smell, exactly?" Varric’s nose twitched sympathetically, mirroring a wrinkle on the bridge of Hawke’s nose.
"I don’t know exactly," said Hawke. "It’s just rank. Like the viscount’s fig tree when the fruits are green, along with the fertilizer. What do you think he’s doing down there?"
"Fertilizer," said Varric, and rubbed his chin with his eyebrows nearly touching.
"What’s with the dramatic pause?"
"Hawke, there could be a bomb in your basement. Or an army of dead templars dissolving in acid. Or, best case scenario, an army of mages preparing for rebellion. Have you thought about this before moving a templar-killing-renegade into your house?"
And so with Aveline and Fenris in tow, they approached the door to the cellars with their weapons at the ready. Anders had the only old key, but what was a lock to Varric?
"Did you hear that?"
"Sounded like a ‘squeak.’"
"Your lockpicks need oiling, Varric."
"You lot are scaring off anyone who might be hiding in there!"
Soon the door was opened, well-oiled hinges swinging apart silently, leaving them to stare into an ominously dark hallway, and the smell hit them like a tidal wave. Hawke was right. It did smell like a fig tree in full flower.
It smelled like a fig tree in full flower to anyone who never owned a cat.
On cloth-covered old sofas and the tops of dressers, on every surface high off the ground imaginable, on top of the newly opened cellar door, were fluffy, furry, bundles of cat. Their eyes flashed green in the dark, hundreds of them - no, thousands of them, too many to count - and among the sea of green there was one solitary pair of blue, brighter than the others, awash in spirit fire.
"Anders?" Said Hawke, tentatively. Then Hawke added, "love?"
"NO CAT WILL EVER BE SLAVE TO PEOPLE AGAIN!" Intoned the booming voice of Justice. "NO CAT WILL LACK FREEDOM OR LIVE IN A SACK! NO CAT WILL BE GIVEN AWAY AS GIFTS AS IF THEY WERE OBJECTS! ALL KITTENS WILL BE BORN FREE!"
Thus began the great feline revolution that led to the re-founding of the Inquisition, 9:41 Dragon, as penned by Varric Tethras, a dwarf -
