For [livejournal.com profile] womenlovefest and I asked to talk about Isabela from Dragon Age/Dragon Age 2.

Isabela has no pants. Isabela needs no pants, Day 1. (Realistic Relationships)

For those not in the know, Isabela is not only the most kickass chick in Dragon Age/Dragon Age 2, she's also one of the very rare characters of color. She's uninhibited, speaks her mind, unapologetic, feminine, upfront, violent and amazing.

For the first day, I thought I'd link to the vid of her sex scene in Dragon Age 2. Not because it's the sex scene but because it shows a lot of her personality.



(and, in case the embedding doesn't work - here it is.

She's also the hardest person to friend and to romance in the game, IMHO. She's such a strong character that you really have to work for it, whether you're playing as a male or a female. Words don't work and neither do gifts. You have to show her through actions. I found that to be extremely realistic, the most realistic romance in the game (again, IMHO and YMMV).

I get wordy and spoilers for the game )

The rest of the days will be much less wordy and much more squee-filled.

Title: Kiss Me Once in the Sunshine
Author: [livejournal.com profile] wook77
Artist: [livejournal.com profile] kath_ballantyne
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] elanorofcastile
Canon: Dragon Age 2
Pairing: Hawke/Fenris, Fenris/Hawke/Anders (eventually)
Rating: PG-13
Warnings:
Wordcount: 11,150ish
Summary: In the aftermath of Anders's destruction of the Chantry and his subsequent death, Hawke is surprised to discover that Anders is alive and well in Amaranthine. There's no Justice and no manifesto. There is, however, the attraction and love he'd felt before Anders's manifesto and his relationship with Fenris.
Author's Notes: Contains fade to black sex scene. Many thanks to my artist who is rather amazing and did a fantastic job in a very short period of time. Also thanks to [livejournal.com profile] reddwarfer for letting me babble at her many, many times as I fleshed out the fic. Title shamelessly stolen from a She Wants Revenge song. Further acknowledgements of inspiration are considered spoilers and, thus, under whiteout text * This fic is inspired by an offhand comment David Gaider made that, in response to the question "who took Anders's cat away?", was: Nobody. Ser Pounce-a-lot was possessed by the spirit of Justice, and transformed his body to look like his former owner. Then one day he chased a mouse onto a ship and ended up in Kirkwall. It was the weirdest thing. Yeah, I rolled with it.*
