It’s like, we all hate Sister Petrice, but then you remember she basically tried to incite a race war and suddenly she gets a whole lot scarier

Apparently it’s actually possible to side with her too?

Yup. And if you support her she doesn’t die and Saemus’ murder gets blamed on the Qunari as planned and she shows up in Act 3 and implies she’s making plans for an impending and inevitable schism within the Chantry (which is apparently too soft on heretics for her liking, pressing her to search for more ‘like-minded people’ in preparation for said anticipated schism).

WHAT

I didn’t know this was an option

Why is this an option

That’s terrifying

durianhedgehog:

One of the biggest complaints about Anders is that he allegedly has no control over himself at all, that he’s completely unstable and can’t be trusted not to lash out at any given moment.

He’s repeatedly called ‘crazy’ by just about everyone, including the few people he actually gets along with, like Varric, who considers it friendly advice to tell Hawke that maaaaaaybe the crazy mage isn’t good relationship material if they’re pursuing a relationship with Anders. He’s even called crazy as a joke—multiple times.

There’s really no arguing that they didn’t mean for us to think exactly along those lines ourselves—that of course, he’s obviously ‘crazy’—which they also repeatedly and ignorantly link to violent behavior.

-and yet-

Anders knew exactly who it was that turned Karl into an emotionless husk, knew he was torturing other mages, knew exactly where to find him, and probably could have, without much effort, found a way to kill him if he really wanted to.

He could have, but he didn’t.

Instead, he deliberately did not confront or attack him, and spent three years searching and waiting for enough legitimately incriminating information to bring to a higher authority in the hopes that they would have no choice but to do something about Alrik’s horrific abuses.

My favourite thing about Dragon Age 2 so far:
When all of the party members have fallen and it’s just Anders with next to no health, he screams “don’t leave me behind!” before falling.

Update: In Legacy, during the final fight with Corypheus, all of the party members fell, leaving Anders to fight alone…and he whimpered “I’m trying…to…hold on” before dying himself.

Why would you tell me this and why do I want the audio for it?

"But if you’d join me, I’d rather be on the run with you than safe with anyone else." 
"Then we will be fugitives together."

A mix for the the lovers who never stopped running.
