After weeks of putting it off, then asking friends for permission, then me clumsily clipping and pasting it all together not to mention getting a big helping hand from DonnaAnna, my Dragon Age Origins Meme is finally done.

1. Classic combination, but effective. Credits for the artwork go to :iconsoniacarreras: .

2. Neroon is "ruthless good" as already mentioned in my journal tag. Credits for the artwork go to :iconemedeme: .

3. My choice here shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. In case you wonder about one of the others: Sergeant Kylon is the poor sod who has to police the marketplace with incompetent misfit bastard sons for guards. Credits for the artwork go to :iconinversereality-2: .

4. Believe it or not I never liked this guy from the start. Once I found out what a cheating CENSORED he was towards Anora he really got on bad side. No Cailan fangirl seemed to be willing to let her artwork be used for answer nr4. Fortunatly :icondonnaanna: came to the rescue with a doodle. Big thanks again!

5. You folks have any idea how hard it was to find a drawing of Alistair, where he doesn't have a fangirl FemWarden wrapped around him ;)? Credits from left to right go to: :iconsilieth: , :iconaztarieth: & :iconemedeme: .

6. Well in the game Zevran didn't approve of being rejected of course. But realistically ;) speaking I think he would approve of Neroon's romantic life. Credits for the artwork go to :iconsilieth: & :iconinversereality-2: .
Teary eyed Leliana, but so beautifully drawn.

7. Pretty self explanatory. Credits for the artwork go to :iconsoniacarreras: , :iconhappy-snappy: & :iconemedeme: .

8. Also speaks for itself. Credits for the artwork go to :iconsoniacarreras: & :iconzinoodle: .

An additional thank you to :iconqueenofferelden: who's Memes game me the idea of making a cut-and-paste meme in the 1st place.

A great meme! Neroon sounds great. Would love learning more about his relationships with the companions (and Anora :D). As for taking the meme myself... Why does nobody ever think of us working in letters?! Alas.

Sure! I'll send you a note though instead of replying here, so as to not get the comments section here too offtopic.

Actually when you rescue Anora from the mansion she tells you that you should under no circumstances reveal her identity during the escape, so you really shouldn't tell Ser Cauthrien. As for the Landsmeet: Well of course she does if you outright tell her you'll support Alistair over her. That's just something I can't blame her for. Not after being quite open and honest about her ambitions.

Also during the same pre-Landsmeet discussion about who should rule you can spend quite some time making arguments in favour of Alistair, her making counter arguments, you making a rebuttal, etc. During which she never once claims, that if you think Alistair is the better candidate it must be because you are sexist but sticks to the issues. That I really liked.

In the end we all can like whatever we like. That's why I liked your meme and other memes like it. DAO has so many different and interesting characters we don't need to be in agreement about everything.

Anyway finally I must admit that my PC and Anora wouldn't have an all sunshine and rainbows relationship, but quite a bit of polite disagreements and stuff. Friend of mine illustrates this clearly on a comic featuring them ;) : christivivar.deviantart.com/ar… .

-Heh, Seargent Kylon and Ser Otto are all kinds of funny and awesome! The Rhyming Tree too (can't stop grinning when he's on screen) and the Lady of the Forest is so breath-taking...

-Oh, Cailan... I liked him in the beginning when he said he'd look into the matter of abuse in the alienage, so when he died I was all kinds of disappointed. "He said he'd help use, then Loghain killed him and sold us into slavery! What's wrong with him?!" Then I learned that he took many mistresses and was planning on to callously divorce his wife in favour of the Orlaisian Empress.... then Anora offered to help the elves in exchange for support at the Landsmeet and that was the end of my esteem for Cailan. Useless Blond Bimbo Monarch indeed!

-Heh, your party looks a lot like mine, except I didn't spare Loghain later. I might have if he hadn't sold my people (including the village elder, poor old father and cousin's bride) into slavery.

-Leliana....... eh, my least favourite of the romance able companions, but she has her appeal, I guess.

-All in all, this was very entertaining and very interesting. Sorry to comment so much on everything. ^^;

No need at all to be sorry! I hardly ever get any comments. with my slim gallery. Let alone fullout feedback.

- Seargent Kylon I felt really sorry for, when I learned what material he has to work with. And he sure seems to do a quite good job actually.

- Cailen seemed nice, but something triggered all sorts of alarm bells about him. Boy playing war is getting too obvious in the Ostagar chapter.

- You have to spare Loghain due to a plot bug, that still isn't fixed (and probably wont ever be I guess). Also the whole "Anora will still marry you as long as it's Alistair who kills Loghain instead of you" seems unrealistic IMO. It's still you you makes the decision and gives the order and Anora would know that.

- Leliana... well I have a thing for Redheads who swing both ways, as you've seen in a photo in my inspiration meme ;) .

-I agree with you about Seargent Kylon, though I thought all of his lines were hilarious and felt bad about laughing at his expense.

-Really? I didn't have that problem on my PC--I could kill him all I wanted with any party member and there wasn't any problem. (Then again, I didn't intend for anyone to marry Anora, so that might be it.)

I guess what the creators were going for was that Anora loves her father so much that, while she knows logically that execution was a consequence to his actions, emotionally she could never bring herself to share a marital bed with her father’s killer. But then again, the game has all kinds of “consequences” to various actions. (Like in the Cousland origin, you can only bed one of two people. If one accepts your invitation, the other always says “no” even though-—supposedly-—they didn’t hear you propositioning the other and have no reason to back out.)

-Oh, I don't doubt that Leliana has her appeal. ;) Beautiful, Redheaded, French, bisexual, a reformed bad girl... She just happens to be the one party member whose charms don't do anything for me. =( (Morrigan, on the other hand, embodies everything I ever found attractive in women. It's too bad she isn't bi, or else she'd be perfect. )'=

- Oh, yes "being a guard can actually be dangarous" made me LOL as well.

- Strange, the plot-but also happened to my MaleAmell who made Anora Queen by herself, but executed Loghain. All the way from the Landsmeet until just before the Coronation all the dialogues and stuff were as if Alistair was King by himself.

- Morrigan I don't like at all actually. She's like like the flip-side of a stereotypical Disney Princess IMO: Nasty for the heck of it, without regards to what would actually be the pragmatic choice.

dual rogue duelist/sin rocks! B-)

Also, no. 4 - :worship: WHERE are those bastards of his? Yes, whole crazy civil war started becouse of Anora (Gaider confirmed that somewhere - Loghain did, indeed, found Cailan's letters and that treatury was becouse of Anora, not Orlais. Yay, Anora of Troy :D) but still. What was he doing? 5 years, blondie, 5 loooong years.

Thank you!

About nr4: Yes I referenced the lack of bastards and who seems to have been infertile considering the lack of them in my inspiration meme.

Thank you, but writing it once would have been enough ;). I'll hide your triple-post.

Ah, so with this gimp program I can add the pictures to the meme? :)

Pretty much. You open the blank meme, then open the other picture and then cut and paste. I doubled the size of the blank meme first to get more space. Just install it and go for trial and error, took me a long time for work things out, too.

This is a great meme :)

You know... I never intended to make it because I'm no artist either, but I actually could do something like this with the artwork of Lyna :)

Is there a program with which you can add this all to the meme? :)

I used GIMP [link] an opensource picture editor program.
