Why am I doing this again?

Post  Rhia474 on Wed Nov 18, 2009 1:20 am

Someone remind me why am I doing this again? After my NWN2 addiction and the resulting monsterfic, which is still only about halfway through with 54 chapters, WHY am I falling this HARD for a pixellated romance option? Oh wait, could it be because he totally reminds me my husband, up to and including his annoying habit of leaving dirty socks everywhere and going off on bizarre angles about swooping and changing the subject with dizzying speed, not to mention the smile that curls a girl's toes.

So, lessee:

Name: Rhia
Age: 37
Location: Texas, baby!

Favourite Alistair moment: Hmmm... Can I haz multiples? There's the lamppost convo of course, then there's the one when he asks Wynne to mend his shirt...of the romance conversations, though, I like the one right after the first kiss best when he says 'Maker's Breath but you're beautiful...I am a lucky man." That totally makes me melt into a shivering puddle over and over again.

Other hobbies: Are there any other? Okay, seriously, my non-gamer and non-writer time is taken up by my eight-month old, cooking and attempting to keep our house in order.

A fun fact about you?: I have three degrees. Also a t-shirt that says 'Dangerously Overeducated'.

Anything else to declare: Um... the obsessiveness of this is frightening me. Can I have some chocolate please?

Here you are! Chocolate rose! Alistair picked it for you so it wouldn't be eaten by the Darkspawn. Wink

That is the most delicious thing I have ever seen.

....

Wait, scratch that. If we can eat it off of Alistair's tummy, THAT will be the most delicious thing I have ever seen.

Give it time. I'm sure some talented alchemist will come up with something.

Until then, we'll be in our bunks. 9_9

They're just waiting for trade from Orlais. I'll bet my splintmail armour that those guys totally have chocolate.

That is the best explanation ever and now I totally accept that as canon until someone comes along and proves otherwise. Orlais has chocolate and Antiva has spices. That's what I'm telling myself.

Antiva's major exports are thieves, whores and spices, apparently. >_>

I totally want them to send us to Antiva and/or Orlais in the sequel or in some DLC. I think those places would be an absolute blast to visit. Zevran talked about Antiva also having some famous fish chowder or soup or something as well, so I keep imagining there being this coastal hot spot with a market place and children running about and you needing to hold on tight to your purse lest someone swipe it from you.
Orlais I just imagine it being the sort of place where you need to hop off to the side of the road to avoid nobles wearing ridiculously flamboyant hats running you over in carriages. Razz

Oh RIGHT! How could I forget the SHOES?! Or the people who wear live birds in their hair?!
I'm pretty sure Leliana just ensured that if I ever went to Orlais it would be for the spectacle and not the cultural appreciation. XD
