I was super disappointed with the lack of party banter you get when romancing Josephine, because it is zilch. So I decided to write some myself – a good practice in both game-type of writing as well as writing characters I don’t usually write that much.

Sera:

“Frilly underthings!”

“I’m…sorry, what?”

“Your Josie. She wears frilly underthings. I’d know. I’ve seen them.” 

“You’ve…what now?”

“They looked really good up on that flagpole, is what I’m saying”

“Oh, that! That’s a relief.”

“Wait, you thought that I… [laughs] No friggin’ way! She’s yours.”


Iron Bull:

“Say, boss, I’ve heard Antivan weddings are huge, and often do not end before two people have dueled each other.”

“Why are you telling me this, exactly?”

“Well, you and Josephine seem pretty serious, and Antivans are really big on the marrying thing. I just thought I’d give you a head’s up.”

  • [Thanks, I guess.] “Thank you, I shall…keep it in mind.”
  • [Are you trying to frighten me?] “You’re not scaring me out of a potential marriage to Josephine.” 
  • [Now is not the time.] “With all those demons pouring out of the sky you’d think I’d have other priorities than planning my wedding.”

Dorian (After you’ve completed An Unexpected Engagement):

“I

would never have thought that you, of all people, knew how to handle a rapier, and even less that you would use your skills to duel the dashing nobleman officially betrothed to your dear Lady Ambassador. You should have seen the looks coming from the audience. Hah, brilliant!”

  • (If the Inquisitor is human) [I’ve had a good teacher.] “I took some mandatory dueling lessons when I was young. The perks of being noble offspring, I suppose.”
  • [It surprised me as well.] “I have to admit, I thought it would be more difficult.”
  • [I fight well under pressure.] “I had to do it. Apparently my drive to defend Josephine’s honor helped quite a bit.”
  • [It wasn’t as good as you say.] “You’re exagerrating. I was lucky get out of the duel unscathed.” [Dorian Slightly Disapproves]

Varric (After you’ve completed An Unexpected Engagement):

“Well now, Inquisitor, who would’ve thought you’d end up in a scenario that wouldn’t even have made it into Swords and Shields because it is too improbable?”

“Too improbable? Really?”

“Oh come on, a duel for a lady’s heart in the middle of Val Royeaux, in which the clanging of rapiers is interrupted by the lady flinging herself at you? How is that not the pinnacle of romantic clichés?”

  • [Perhaps you are right, but it was worth it.] “It might be a cliché, but Josephine deserves nothing less.”
  • [Do not put this in a book] “If you write this story down and make money out of it, Josephine is going to sue you.”
    (Varric: “Ruffles will love the paperwork, I’m sure.”)
  • [It wasn’t like that] “It honestly wasn’t as story book as you make it out to be, Varric.” [If Cassandra is in your party – Slightly Disapproves]

Philliam, a Bard! is a Trevelyan and I’m dying

diagk:

Fenris. Inquisitor.

thereluctantinquisitor:

Varric: So, elf. How’s the cold treating you?

Fenris: Better than expected, but I doubt I will miss it.

Varric: Right. Now, feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, but I heard someone went through a lot of firewood last night. That wasn’t you, was it?

Fenris: … 

Fenris: You hear a great deal, dwarf.

Varric: (Chuckles) I’ll take that as a yes.

enigmaticagentalice:

but consider: Dragon Age Inquisition Jury Duty AU

with the nine companions and three advisors as the jury

  • Bull as that one guy who is really psyched to get time off work but doesn’t actually give a shit about the case and spends most of his time making friends
  • Leliana and Josephine make friends on day one and spend the entire time having secretive little convos in the corner where they stop talking as soon as anyone else approaches
  • Cassandra and Varric spend the entire time bickering because he keeps suggesting outlandish theories as to what REALLY happened with this case and she’s trying so hard to keep them all on track
  • Vivienne is FAR too busy for this darling, she turns up every day in a new impeccable business suit and spends every spare moment calling and texting her work
  • Sera is the youngest there and thinks this is all a waste of time, and she doodles constantly in the courtroom when she should be paying attention
  • Cullen and Blackwall on the other hand take the whole thing INCREDIBLY SERIOUSLY
  • Dorian tries to find out as much as possible about his fellow jurors, their lives and their opinions, and spends just as much time talking about himself
  • Solas is that one guy who is totally convinced he is more intelligent and insightful than anyone else there, sulks when he isn’t chosen as foreman and Cassandra is instead, and causes the deliberations at the end of trial to go on for HOURS because he is the one person who wants to give the opposite verdict to everyone else
  • Cole keeps himself to himself and hardly talks to the others until they’re discussing a verdict and he makes some really insightful comment that makes everyone completely reconsider the whole case

kf1n3 :

Basil finally gets a tarot card! or atleast my first ever attempt at one

corseque:

ok everybody has probably already caught this by now, but I wanted to write it down –

You have to judge the mayor of Crestwood for pretty much the same thing that Solas is responsible for (albeit on a much smaller scale). I couldn’t have written a closer parallel if I tried – the mayor, in a position of authority, made the decision to unilaterally kill many innocent people in order to stop something he believed to be more terrible from happening (eta: and both were, perhaps, attempts to specifically stem the spread of the Blight – thank you for catching that, @rederiswrites!). Then living with guilt for years, all those deaths on his hands, wondering if he made the right call, until finally the truth was revealed.

Where it gets interesting is when Solas reacts to the Mayor’s punishment. And his reactions are almost the complete opposite of all the other companions.

Solas seems to be the only person who actively empathizes with the mayor. He thinks the mayor deserved exile, is neutral about imprisonment, and he is the only one to disapprove of a beheading. 

That Solas would approve of a betrayer being exiled away from his people is interesting to me, especially knowing his worst fear (“dying alone”) and hearing the conversation with Varric about the Man on the Island. I wonder if these are the same punishments he would give himself. 

Anyway, I get a kick from all the people in the comments saying that they just felt sorry for the mayor having to make a choice like that…  does that go for Trespasser as well?

the-kn33s-of-b33s:

Okay so. Josephine and Leliana are like “we should get the mages to help us close the breach because, magic, duh” and Cullen’s over here like “no we should go to the templars” and I’m like. Son, what are the templars going to do about a fucking hole in the sky? Wave their swords at it? Accuse it of being a blood mage?

I know! The first time I played DA:I I just chose the mages because I thought that made the most sense. The next time I chose the Templars just to see what would happen, because I fully expected it to involve another method and probably be more difficult (I mean if mages are so powerful they need to be locked up for the safety of Thedas you’d expect them to be more powerful when closing the Breach).

But it’s just the same cutscene! It frustrates me so much! What is the Inquisitor (or Herald at this point) even drawing from? The lyrium in the Templar’s blood? What?

From what I gathered, the templars’ ability to counteract/negate magic allowed them to suppress the breach enough for the Herald’s mark to close it. Although that does beg the question, if they’re suppressing magic in the area, how does that not mess with the magic of the mark/Anchor, too?

thereluctantinquisitor:

Varric: … and so, Broody went to the Templars. But the Templars had a few issues of their own…
