Huh. I just saw pictures and a video of Anders in Awakening. o_O This is. What. I am very confused. D: I mean, I expected his face to be different, but not that much and I thought at least the voice would be the same! Now I definitely understand why people were unhappy with the changes. Well. Not understand as in I suddenly like that one better; first impressions and everything. But it must have been jarring. (Also, ugh - getting this weird action hero vibe there.)

Which ... brings me to my next DA2 post, I suppose? I'm so late with all this, but I can't shut up about it. By now I have seven characters (...), though one is still very fresh and I'm not sure if I want to keep her, and number four kind of got abandoned really early on. So technically I finished the game four times (I know!) and have another playthrough going where I'm relatively far along. What's funny is that I still discovered a whole lot of new things during this one - mostly conversations that went differently because I'm finally playing an opportunist rather than various types of nice or at least somewhat ... righteous people, but I also went for rivalry with some characters on purpose, made friends with Isabela for the first time and took Bethany into the Deep Roads with me (!!!). Surprises everywhere!

I'm not done picking out screenshots yet, sorry. But while I'm at it, here are the parts of my offline log that relate to the game ... puns and frustrations )

And then I've got this undated note in which I am amused by the names Merin and Emrys. Missing an L there, Merin?! :P

Here we go again ...

Guh. Merlin's beard, I really missed the internet this time around. I wanted to talk to people, I wanted to google things, I ... craved fanfic like the socially deprived little creature that I am. o.O Also, for a while I was sick and could literally not do anything but play Dragon Age II - or solitaire, I suppose, but naturally I chose the more interesting option. One time I actually grew bored of it and spent an hour reading the codex instead because there was still nothing else for me to do. *facepalm* (Note to non-players: The codex is a collection of info and stories inside of the game's menu.)

((And then there were the two days when circumstances prevented me from playing. I shit you not, for some of that time I actualfax sat and stared at the wall.))

Unsurprisingly, my By Now Almost Traditional Offline Log™ got rather long as well. Shortening it until it's fit for posting might take a while, especially since half of it is also about DA2 and I don't want to bore everyone with that. Might dump those bits into the screenshot post I was planning to make if I can manage it.

For the moment, here's the biggest piece of news: MY BEDROOM IS FINISHED. :D So is the kitchen, except for the part where I can't afford cabinets and will have to make do with putting a bookcase there temporarily. All that needs to be done now before I can move in is to install a few more lamps and buy a shower curtain, I think. The living room can be done while I'm already sleeping there, right? Though I'm hoping that won't be necessary, which it won't if I have help and we're fast. So ... exciting times lie ahead!
