There is also a depiction of attempted rape and quite a bit of violence, as hopefully you gleaned from my story summary, which also has trigger warnings. But I will place them here again to be sure. The world of Dragon Age is a violent one, and such things do happen. They are alluded to in the game, heavily implied and spoken about if not shown outright.
If you read on and are upset by the scenes depicted in my story, I'm sorry. I did the best I could to warn of such content. You need not read my story. That's about it, really, except to say I hope you will enjoy reading this story as much as I enjoy writing it. I am writing it for myself, really, and choosing to share it with you, so please bear that in mind if you feel the need to send me a message or post a review.
Please be kind, and if you can't be kind, be constructive. If you can't be either, frankly I'd rather you didn't say anything at all. Just leave it be. Again, you do not have to read my story. I've stated quite clearly what it is about. Also, standard disclaimer - Bioware owns the Dragon Age world and the wonderful characters who live in it. I just play with them. Thanks for giving this story a chance, maximasdecimas TRIGGER WARNING: ATTEMPTED RAPE xxx M xxx By the Dread Wolf!
If I'd known I was going to get so lost on my way home from the market, I would have left four hours earlier! But, since I was only there for an hour, that would have meant I would have left before I arrived, in which case I may as well have just stayed home, and I did so want to see the night market, with all the lanterns and torches and people wandering around bumping into things. It wouldn't have been just me for a change. Ah, well, at least I got to see it, and now I see the Hanged Man, so I think I know where I am.
It shouldn't take me too much longer to get home from here. My feet are killing me. I wish I'd worn shoes with soles, now. It is a hot night, so I am not wearing my chainmail, just a long tunic, and I left my staff at my house. I didn't want to bring it with me just to go to the market, after all. I hardly think I'll need it, though. Varric has told me I shouldn't walk alone at night, but I'm not worried; nothing ever happens.
I'm thinking about Hawke, as usual, as I make my way home; I can't seem to keep her out of my head! Not that I mind, of course. I like thinking about her, but when I'm with her, it gets awfully distracting. I look at her and think about the things I've been thinking about her, and then I blush like mad and babble like a fool, stumbling over my words like a da'len who hasn't quite mastered talking. She's so beautiful and clever and good, and she says the funniest things! They appeal to a subset of male gamers and while it is true you can't make a romance option everyone will love, with Isabella and Merrill it seems like they weren't even going for an option most males will like.
We have a lot of fans, many of whom are neither straight nor male, and they deserve no less attention. We have good numbers , after all, on the number of people who actually used similar sorts of content in DA: The "rights" of anyone with regards to a game are murky at best, but anyone who takes that stance must apply it equally to both the minority as well as the majority. The majority has no inherent "right" to get more options than anyone else. You can write it off as "political correctness" if you wish, but the truth is that privilege always lies with the majority.
They're so used to being catered to that they see the lack of catering as an imbalance. They don't see anything wrong with having things set up to suit them, what's everyone's fuss all about? That's the way it should be, any everyone else should be used to not getting what they want. Does it create some issues of implementation? Sure -- but anything you try on this front is going to have its issues, and inevitably you'll always leave someone out in the cold.
