☄ (HA I WONDER WHERE THIS CAME FROM IT COULDN’T BE BLACK SWANDERS?!?!)
Anders would be a famous ballet dancer. He’s more than earned his spot amongst the best with all the training he’s done. However, he also has a tendency to push himself until he drops. Enter Adel. She has a job of her own but works in her spare time as something of an assistant. She doesn’t really know a thing about dancing, though she’s had some dancers in her family. However, she sticks around to make sure that Anders takes care of himself. She brings him fancy meals when she knows he’s forgotten to eat. She makes sure that he takes breaks and rests every so often. Basically she makes sure he stays happy and healthy so that he performs his best in every show (which she always goes to see).
☾ : Sleep headcanon
Reilli is a loud and completely undignified sleeper. She has a tendency to thrash around, snore, and- on occasion- talk in her sleep. Doc is used to a life on call and so has never been a sound sleeper. He can fall asleep like a rock but it doesn’t take much to rouse him back into complete wakefulness. So he would take issue with Reilli’s sleeping habits and might not even share a bed if not for the fact that:
And we all know who that is!
The Love Interests from Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II collaborate to prepare romantic menus. Getting them to stop bickering long enough to cook was quite the challenge, but in the end, their love for your Wardens and Hawkes proved greater than their incidental rivalries. In the interests of keeping the bloodshed to a minimum, each was tasked with preparing one dish (and with leaving the others alone while they prepared theirs).
It was not easy to decide who should cook what. In the end, I pulled names out of a hat and begged them not to squabble. They were all very understanding.
Valentine’s Day isn’t until next week, but some of these need to be started a few days in advance.
Why tamper with the tried and true? This traditional menu will satisfy hearty appetites without dulling the senses… too much. If you want to serve two wines, try champagne or sauvignon blanc with the gougeres and uncork a shiraz or cabernet sauvignon to accompany the steak, but be sure to bring out the coffee for the dessert.

- Morrigan’s Filet Mignon
- Leliana’s Asparagus a l’Orange
- Zevran’s Chocolate Decadence
FRESH TASTES OF DRAGON AGE 2
As popular as the classics are, some people prefer a lighter menu featuring brighter tastes and more fresh produce. This menu also offers vegan alternatives for those who practice a vegetarian lifestyle. Both the salmon and the pilaf pair well with chardonnay or a pinot noir. Other wine choices for the salmon include pinot gris or burgundy; other wine choices for the pilaf include chianti or zinfandel. If you wish to serve a second wine, consider serving the strawberries with sparkling prosecco while watching something romantic… such as videos of your favorite Dragon Age romance dialogues.
- Fenris’s Blood Orange and Arugula Salad
- Isabela’s Wild-Caught Salmon
- Anders’s Lentil Pilaf
- Merrill’s Escarole with Pine Nuts
