This is my place to hang my DA II Fandom hat, either by reblogging my love for Fenris & Anders or passing on fics or amazing art.
Please Note: I'm currently unfollowing for untagged Inquisition spoilers, but plan to follow back after the game comes out. It's nothing personal. I just really want to keep spoilers off my dash.snagged this from heretherebdragons tumblr info
Logo art by Jakface and msbarrows., from my request for Fenris in a suit.

i knew that relationship was going to be 100% disgusting from jump just from the damn blurb and i still clearly underestimated it
"Her elven lover made soft sleeping sounds, and Celene stroked her hair absently. The black curls lightened to gray with the pre dawn light, then slid to the light brown of cinnamon as the sun brought colour to the room.
"Dirt-brown, Celene had called it, when Briala had waited on her as a girl. Horse-dung brown, an ugly shadow of Celene’s spun-gold locks. Back when they had both been children, before Celene had known the value of having a friend who could be trusted, who wasn’t a competitor in the Game."
WOW REMEMBER HOW I USED TO YELL RACIST THINGS AT YOU WHEN WE WERE KIDS BUT NOW YOU’RE USEFUL TO ME SO NOW I THINK OF THOSE THINGS AS ENDEARING, GOOD TIMES, GLAD WE’RE SO IN LOVE
This is fucking garbage, I had to put the book down and walk away for a while when I read that. I’m shaking just having gone and found it again. There’s no qualifying statement from Celene going ‘wow, good thing Briala somehow manages to look past the garbage that makes up most of me and loves me anyway, I can’t believe I used to think those fucking atrocious things about someone, I’ll never do it again to anyone let alone someone I love.”
But no she’s lying there post coital thinking it fondly I’m going to be sick
POC described as food/spice? - Check
POC described in racist, fetishizing terms? - Check
Friendship overcoming all boundaries/Past hatred trope - Check
WOC Overlooking terrible past with protag for crumbs of affection? - Check (ie you are scum and treated me like shit but I’m going to take whatever you give me and no one will love me like you)
This has guaranteed I will never buy this book. I was on the fence because prior DA Novelizations were shit, but this? Just no.
