I was playing Awakenings last night, and listening to Nathaniel and Velanna talking, and thought, "Waitaminnut, are these two flirting?" It also made me think they would be a cute couple. So, I came up with this, 'cause Mahariel would so tease them. Ah, Velanna, methinks thou dost protest too much. :3

Eeeee blushing Velanna :3
Man I need to replay that game, I don't remember some awesome bits :-/
Nice range of expressions. I'm gonna check out you more recent work, I think I've only seen old stuff so far ^^

She's adorable when she blushes isn't she? :3

Replaying as a different character helps. Once you've played DA2, you start seeing all the foreshadowing for what happens to Anders too. My first playthrough I didn't get Justice until last so I didn't really have many conversations with his character, so if you replay you'll discover new things too! :D

And thank you! I love expressions! I haven't posted much to DeviantArt since DA2 so a lot of it is older. Most of my newer work is for my webcomic, LaSalle's Legacy and on that site. But now that I've finished Inquisition, there will probably be more new stuff. :)

Maaaaaayyyyybeee... Though Velanna scarpered off in my game so probably not in my canon playthrough. Maybe she'll be there for yours. ;)

That be cute, I wonder if she would have calmed down by then? ;p

Isn't it though? ;)

:D It totally is, especially to get a rise out of Nathaniel's stoic expression. ;) XD

Love this comic. You wouldn't expect Nathaniel to be that smooth, but he was straight mackin' on the hot elf, haha.

Best Awakening ship ever. X3

Kinda hoping that despite her ending they do meet up and actually get together later on~

We'll see. I'll just be happy if Nathaniel shows up in DA3 at all. :D

I didn't like her that much, but mostly because I didn't think she was as well-developed as the others. She is fun to tease, though. :D

There were a lot of potential in the party members though I do agree that Velanna should've been a bit more developed, especially considering that her sister is with The Architet
