random and most likely ridiculous things

Female, twenty-one, virgo, ex- art school student turned English major at Rutgers with aspirations of getting paid money to write stories. Things I like in no particular order horses, star wars, writing (obviously), drawing, other peoples writings and art, music of all sorts, the color blue, and a bunch of other stuff I won't bore you with listing. You can call me Claire

It doesn’t really matter to me whether Cullen can be considered a “good man.” That’s such a subjective ideal.

What’s interesting about him is that HE tries hard to be a good man, in contrast to a lot of less idealistic DA characters.

For most of his adult life Cullen operated off the assumption that “good man” equals “good Templar.” That assumption was fundamentally flawed because of the nature of the Templar order. Now that he knows better, it will be interesting to see what new standard he adopts for himself.

Does he find his own ideal through critical thinking, or does he reach out to have a new one prescribed for him? Does he flounder or thrive now that he has to make his own code of discipline?

That’s the kind of redemption struggle I’m interested in reading.

my new hawke looks more closely related to anders than her own sister…blonde hair problems 

I can’t accept that. I can’t accept that there was only one black woman in the entire film, who delivered one line and who we never saw again. I can’t accept that the bad guys were Asian and that although in China, Lucy’s roommate says, “I mean, who speaks Chinese? I don’t speak Chinese!” I can’t accept that in Hercules, which I also saw this weekend, there were no people of color except for Dwayne Johnson himself and his mixed-race wife, whose skin was almost alabaster. I can’t accept that she got maybe two lines and was then murdered. I can’t accept that the “primitive tribe” in Hercules consisted of dark-haired men painted heavily, blackish green, to give their skin (head-to-toe) a darker appearance, so the audience could easily differentiate between good and bad guys by the white vs. dark skin. I can’t accept that during the previews, Exodus: Gods and Kings, a story about Moses leading the Israelite slaves out of Egypt, where not a single person of color is represented, casts Sigourney Weaver and Joel Edgerton to play Egyptians. I can’t accept that in the preview for Kingsman: The Secret Service, which takes place in London, features a cast of white boys and not a single person of Indian descent, which make up the largest non-white ethnic group in London. I can’t accept that in stories about the end of the world and the apocalypse, that somehow only white people survive. I can’t accept that while my daily life is filled with black and brown women, they are completely absent, erased, when I look at a TV or movie screen.

WOW i really just want to romance cullen holy shit inquisition get here faster 

i really should be writing or drawing or something PRODUCTIVE but like i worked from 7-4 and boys are so weird and confusing and my family is down and they had a hardcore talk about prescription drug abuse and like idk i didn’t get to work out and the day’s been heavy and exhausting and i think dragon age 2 is the only real option i have here 

okay decided to make a new hawke to pair up with my human noble origins play through because my only other da2 playthrough was a snarky female rogue and i feel obligated to beat da2 once as snarky female rogue in honor of the first lost playthrough/i really just miss the hawke snark
