Not gonna spoil anything for you, but YES the book’s focus on elven issues gave me way more hope that they’re going to do the subject some justice in DA3. This and the concept art of the Dales have gotten me really pumped about it. I was super worried it was going to be a repeat of “MAGE SEASON! TEMPLAR SEASON! FIRE” and practically nothing else.
I think if Velanna were to appear it’d probably be in some capacity as a Grey Warden, which makes it less likely in my opinion, but given the events of Masked Empire I think it’s almost assured that the Dalish as a monolith (rather than as scattered clans and individuals) are going to play an important part, and that Velanna’s personal ideals and character development are going to be reflected in a big way.
I would be fine with that scenario too, especially since I have a lot of fondness for the idea of Velanna staying a Grey Warden. I’m just really excited by the thought of the Dalish finally getting the chance to play a significant role! Even if she herself doesn’t appear in the game, it gives me more blanks to potentially fill in with fanfic. ;)
It’s not much, but I wrote a little thing in honor of the incredibly talented and sweet coppermarigolds. May your birthday be a very happy one! And I hope you enjoy this little bit of Nathaniel/Velanna silliness <3
Ahhhh! *flails* And then she wore the flower for the rest of the day; I will not be convinced otherwise. ;) This is completely adorable and made my birthday evening! Thank you so much; you’re the sweetest! <333
Continuing with the “first light of dawn” prompt, some OTP fluff, because I want to get back in the swing of writing these two.
