Canon: Dragon Age: Origins
Characters/Pairing: Morrigan and a potential spoiler character
Prompt: contemplation
Rating: G
Notes: Because I've never posted any Dragon Age here. I had two ideas in my head this week, and this isn't either of them.



"Mummy?"

"Yes, child?"

Laughter trills on the night breeze as he rises from his bed. "I wanted to know you're there."

On occasion she fears the boy is as foolish as his father. A fitting punishment, some might think, for the role she chose to play. Not her. "You knew I was."

"I did," he admits, smile audible in his small voice. "You wouldn't leave me, would you, Mummy?"

"No." Beside the fire, she watches him creep closer. "Though 'tis contrary, at times, to my better judgment."

He throws his arms around her, tightly enough to make her grimace. "Good."

This is so Morrigan that I can barely stand it. I love it six ways to Sunday. And how perfect is this: On occasion she fears the boy is as foolish as his father. A fitting punishment, some might think, for the role she chose to play.

Oh, ritual. You're so devious. Now I'm tempted to buy the Morrigan DLC after all.

Ha! Thank you so much!

I haven't bought it yet, either, feeling disappointed that I would have to figure out how to work around the bug where Morrigan doesn't recognize it if your character's done the ritual. It's the one thing a DLC about that shouldn't have screwed up.

...but I read about it, and I'm still tempted.

Oh, this is wonderful. I can just about hear Claudia Black reading the narration. I love the idea of Morrigan going through motherhood with the same occasional lack of patience and tact that she shows throughout the game. You've captured a lot with just 100 words here. Well done!

Thank you! I'm glad you like it!

I don't think she could possibly go through motherhood any other way. Not even an old god born anew as her child could make it otherwise.

Dragon Age is, in my opinion, a writer's game. The most impressive things about it are the world-building and the characters. My hat is certainly off to the writers who worked on it, and I'm so glad you read my fics and liked them. Thank you so much!
