Confession: I think the the Rite of Tranquility, not forbidden magic, is what is causing tears and weak spots in The Veil between Thedas and The Fade.

Confession: I truly admire Kaitlyn for beeing able to marry Bann Teagan and squeeze into the nobility with just the five sovereigns you give to her in exchange for her sword. As someone who had to be of noble birth already AND kill an archdemon in order to marry Alistair all I have to say is: well played Kaitlyn, well played…

Who took Anders’ cat away?

David Gaider: Nobody. Ser Pounce-a-lot was possessed by the s pirit of Justice, and transformed his body to look like his former owner. Then one day he chased a mouse onto a ship and ended up in Kirkwall. It was the weirdest thing.
Pretty much my canon now.

The photography of William Eggleston

A native Southerner raised on a cotton plantation in the Mississippi Delta, Eggleston has created a singular portrait of his native South since the late 1960s. After discovering photography in the early 1960s, he abandoned a traditional education and instead learned from photographically illustrated books by Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, and Robert Frank. Although he began his career making black-and-white images, he soon abandoned them to experiment with color technology to record experiences in more sensual and accurate terms at a time when color photography was largely confined to commercial advertising. In 1976 with the support of John Szarkowski, the influential photography historian, critic, and curator, Eggleston mounted “Color Photographs” a now famous exhibition of his work at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. William Eggleston’s Guide , in which Szarkowski called Eggleston’s photographs “perfect,” accompanied this groundbreaking one-person show that established his reputation as a pioneer of color photography. His subjects were mundane, everyday, often trivial, so that the real subject was seen to be color itself. These images helped establish Eggleston as one of the first non-commercial photographers working in color and inspired a new generation of photographers, as well as filmmakers. 

Eggleston has published his work extensively. He continues to live and work in Memphis, and travels considerably for photographic projects. (x)

You know at the Landsmeet when Loghain says “Alistair would be a puppet on the throne. But who would pull the strings?” and Loghain looks at the Warden and he’s just like, “Ah, so here’s the puppeteer…” 

DAMN FUCKING RIGHT. 

I love it when the Warden chooses to become the Chancellor. If they keep Alistair unhardened, they really do end up having the King dancing to their tune. 

Because, assuming Alistair is unhardened (possibly as a strategic move on the Warden’s part, since Alistair is lot more pliable when he’s still a little naive), the Chancellor is the de facto ruler of Ferelden. 

It’s mentioned that unhardened!Alistair just automatically sides with his old Warden buddy (regardless if they were romantically involved or not) and basically gives them free reign. In the epilogue, it’s even mentioned the Chancellor was the “true power behind the throne” and, if Queen Anora was married to an unhardened Alistair, “The former Grey Warden enjoyed King Alistair’s full confidence, however, and thus great influence in running the kingdom—more than the queen would like, probably, but she had little choice.” 

Which kind of sucks, because Anora is amazing, and I don’t really like the idea of her being unhappy. Once again, she’s trapped in a loveless marriage with a diminishing amount of power over the kingdom she’s served basically all her life. 

But, hey, considering you play your cards right, a mage/elf/dwarf can practically become the ruler of Ferelden in all but name.

If you ever feel like you’ve screwed up, just remember that in 1348 the Scots thought it would be a good idea to invade England because the English were weakened by the Plague. They subsequently caught the plague themselves, went back to Scotland, and killed half their own population.
