So, whilst perusing the Dragon Age wiki, it stated that currently (930-940) the Dragon Age is euphamistically called the 'three queens age'. Obviously the first two queens means Anora and Celene (though she's not a queen, she's an empress, but hey, details.) But who's the third?

There's only a few actual monarchies in Thedas. (Let's not count those within city-states that are really nothing more than overglorified mayors.)

- Rivain (which is only nominally a monarchy, though they are a strongly matriarchal society, so this one's possibly the third queen)

- Antiva (more of a plutarchy, but has a monarchy, and culturally they no longer accept female rule as per discussed elsewhere in games and such, even though some of the most important Antivan rulers were queens. So, most likely male.)

- Nevarra (ruled by Markus Pentargist, so, that's a dude)

- Orlais, ruled by Empress Celene obviously

- Ferelden, ruled by Cousland+Alistair/Alistair+Anora/Anora/Alister/Anora+Cousland depending upon player's choice, though the supposed meta lore used is that it's ruled by Anora+Alistair.

- Anderfels, a total possibility.

Summary: Alistair thought he had found his place in the world when he joined the Grey Wardens.

Particularly when he falls quite spectacularly in love.

It occurred to me quite suddenly that I should link my good friends on [community profile] peopleofthedas to the Merrill/Isabela primer/ship manifesto I wrote for [community profile] femslashex. It's designed to be read by people who have not played any Dragon Age games, so the first bits won't be of much interest to you. Also, I gloss over a lot of the stuff that has nothing to do with Merabela as meaningless, mostly jokingly, don't take it too hard.

Of possible interest to you is the list of fanworks I included at the bottom. If you want to recommend any other Merrill/Isabela fanworks, you can comment on that post with links.

Also, on an unrelated note: Would anyone be interested in giving a quick beta to a multiple warden A/U? It's a little short of 4000 words (wow how did it get that long) and has some het and some femslash, but no porn.

Who here has DA2 and the Sebastian DLC? I've been thinking of making a deal with myself to buy it, if I can meet certain criteria. First, though, I want to hear more people's detailed thoughts on the matter. And, uh, look up some YouTube videos.

Lots of people have a lot to say about Sebastian and whether he's likable or unlikable, but I'm looking at it from a consumer's POV: I bought DA2 off eBay on the cheap, and the DLC costs about a quarter strike that, I just checked and it's more like half what I paid. I'm not sure if the amount of content in the addon makes it worth the price, and I have heard people say that it feels very unfinished... a general flaw of DA2 in my opinion.

So, I am soliciting as many opinions as possible. Who bought it? What do you think it adds gameplay wise and story wise? Was it worth it? Was it good but overpriced? Do you regret shelling out?

Hey out there to new and old, this comm hasn't be real active in ages, but that stands to reason - DA2 was a bit of a flop when compared to DAO, and lots of us have had major life changes. Work, school, family, health, so on, so forth. But with Inquisition coming up soon(ish - fingers crossed!) we'll probably see a reawakening amongst our members, and a whole slew of new ones!

So, in interest of restarting a dialogue - what are everyone's thoughts on Inqusition so far? I mean, it's not like we've seen much of it, heard much about it - but there's the artbooks. Has anyone seen them, and if so, are there any Antiva entries (hey, it's my pet project country, I wanna know!) Or if there's been anything interesting them? What I have seen of them seems a tad impractical. The Tevinter clothing for instance is utterly crazy. Think about it, Seheron and Par Vollen are tropics, as per Sten's description (nutmeg trees do not just grow anywhere! They need tropic and subtropic temperatures, added to that is Zevran's description of Antiva as being hot), and Tevinter is pissing distance. That would indicate that Tevinter gets hot as heck, and those garments are utterly killer for that type of environment.

The Orlais and Ferelden ones make sense, except, you know, that's never what's portrayed in game.

Also, thoughts about Inquisition - Morrigan's Urthemiel/DR Baby probably isn't an adult, so the hero of the game can't be the kid. Since Inquisition takes place some point between 9:37 and 9:40, and that kid would've been born around 9:30/9:31. Do you think that the child would play a role? Some sort of Grail aspect? (This I could see as feasible, since the child would carry the soul of an Old God, think mega mage or some shit, right?)

Also, plot hole! In Witch Hunt, Morrigan says the eluvian will take her to some place far away and unknown, and a male Warden (or a hacked FemWarden) can go with her to parts unknown...but in the books, comics and whatnot, Morrigan has become part of Celene I's court. Sheesh, if that's parts unknown and far away from where Flemeth may find her...that's not real good thinking here, now is it? Complete plot hole ahoy!

Thoughts?

If I could get serious for a second with everyone left on this community... /ahem.

When I first started writing in this comm, I had zero confidence. I was in the middle of a deep depression, I couldn't get out of bed, I hadn't written or drawn anything in years, etc. With the help of this community, I got my confidence  back. Now, almost three years later (I've ached for you for three years, community :>) ), the famously unemployable Seven not only has a job, she has a career.

If anyone is going to PAX this year, I'm going to be in charge of  all of the internets (the company I work for wires all the LAN and wireless access, and I'm spearheading the planning). 

This comm gave me the confidence I needed to get this job and undertake this effort (this monumental effort that I am soooo not thinking about right now). Thank you, everybody, for giving me back my self. 

We now return you to your regularly scheduled smutts and drama. ;>)

Contains: Slavery, dubious consent, Dom/sub, pain play, piercing, humiliation, breath play, blood play...look, it's me, okay?

Notes: From a Dragon Age II Kink Meme prompt requesting an AU where the elves defeated the Tevinters and enslaved humans. Some canon details have been changed; for example, the children of humans and elves appear mostly elven instead of entirely human. Many, many thanks to Bellaknoti and Katiebour, whose work on deconstructing the elven language has been invaluable.

Summary: Fenris meets his staff.

For the record, we're no longer considering DLC spoilerrific, especially now that we're in the dry spell between DLCs and the new DA game.

Thanks darlings!
