YOU'RE SO REALWhen the sun starts sinking
He’s a story teller!
I was actually really late in the game. I hadn’t finished DAO yet, so I didn’t know anything about him. I really enjoyed my Brosca start, but it red-ringed my 360. So … I wound up buying DAO/DAA on the PS3 a week before DA2 came out.
I think I started getting really excited when I saw Aimo’s artwork suggesting Varric would be a love interest. I was soooo excited about the possibility of a dwarf love interest, especially after the letdown of Leske and Gorim and Oghren and Sigrun. (…I’ve kind of got a thing, I guess.)
I love how Varric interacts with Hawke. I love that he’s very watchful and protective. I love that his words and phrasing are rude and unapologetic. He’s the kind of suave mofo I gravitate toward in stories and games.
I was working on an Assassin’s Creed cosplay when I decided to work on Varric. I found the moleskin in a bargain bin and decided I JUST HAD TO HAVE VARRIC’S COAT. And it kind of went from there.
Turns out I really do have a thicker/shorter body type. And the square jaw. And the blonde hair. And the personality. And the canon aversions to alcoholism. And the canon attraction to looking more fierce than I am. And Hawke. And Bianca.
Really, Varric’s very harmonious for me. :)
