This blog is Cousland friendly. Don't like it? TOUGH. Either get over it, or GET OUT.
I am not a roleplay blog, though I will occasionally comment as Myranda would. Feel free to poke around or to drop a note by my ask.
happy birthday, nvaderxim ♥
"I think that a lot of players expected that she would bend herself to do whatever they wanted because they’ve done the romance, gotten her approval up, and of course she would just sort of follow their destiny. But Morrigan has her own destiny.”
Crow: CROW YES!
It’s actually impossible to measure how many fucks a corvid give because there is no device sensitive enough to register such a tiny amount.
science/animal side of tumblr… explain to me the birb thing
Tail Pulling is a behavior noted in many corvids. The practical application is to create a distraction that will allow the birb to make off with the target’s food. Imagine being in the lunch room and a large fellow has a Twinkie you covet. You can’t just take it from him because he’ll defend his Twinkie. But if you thwap him on the back of his neck and then dash around to snag the Twinkie while he investigates, you stand a decent chance of enjoying spongey goodness. This is basically that in birb form.
Except corvids don’t only do this as a distraction. Sometimes they seem to just being doing it to mess with other animals/birbs. But to use my lunch room analogy, there are times you might thwap someone sneakily on the back of the neck just for amusement. Primates exhibit behavior that appears to be just be annoying other animals for amusement. Given how intelligent crows are, its not unlikely that this is a manifestation of an innate desire to just fuck with someone else for the fun of it. Such as this from the link above:
THANK YOU FOR THE BIRB KNOWLEDGE
BECAUSE IT IS FUN
And people wonder why Zevran is a Crow………
Confession: From playing DA:II first, I had the idea that templars=bad and mages=underdogs/freedom fighters. After playing Origins, my original perspective was changed, especially hearing Wynne’s comments about circle life, and the human side of the templars. Gregoir’s promise to call off the annulment if you clear the tower was an example of that. Seeing this makes me think that the mage/templar conflict in DA:II was handled incorrectly, and greatly oversimplified to: “there is no we, only us and them”
Confession: I wish that there were more “middle of the road” mages and templars like Wynne and Alistair. Hearing how Wynne actually enjoyed circle life, and understood that the templars were a necessity, and how Alistair isn’t some crazy mage bludgeoning templar, even after being raised in the chantry makes me believe that they were real characters, instead of metaphors for each end of the perspective spectrum, like Anders and Fenris.
How each of the Dragon Age II LIs react to Hawke’s death
- Merril starts screaming, sitting in a pool of Hawke’s blood she screams and sobs. She begs Hawke to wake up, reminding them that they’re all she has, “No keeper! No clan! All I have is you Ma vehnan! Please! Please come back!”
- Isabela screams too, but not in despair and pain, no she seems almost angry at Hawke. In a mixture of anger and sadness she screams “How dare you! You promised me you bitch, you promised me! How dare you!"
- Anders is in a state of disbelief. He starts healing them, even though the wound is so deep and the blood is everyone. Tries to act calm but slowly starts losing it as the realization hits him more and more “No, No! This is nothing! I can fix this, I’ve healed worse than this I know I have! This is nothing…”
- Fenris doesn’t scream, he is not in disbelief, he knows far too well what death looks like. Instead he drops to his knees beside them, and holds them close, weeping silent tears. There is no longer any light or life left in his eyes. “I’ve told you Hawke, I can’t bare the thought of living without you.”
