Dragon Age Couples meme: Varia Surana and Alistair by ParisWriter Dragon Age Couples meme: Varia Surana and Alistair by ParisWriter
The artwork in this meme was done for me by the fabulous *toupele! She has given me permission to re-post it to my own account so that I can add the following comments about each of the questions:

1) Introduce your couple: Varia Surana, formerly of the Ferelden Circle of Magi and current Warden-Commander of Ferelden, and Alistair - the former "bastard prince" who gave up his claim to the throne to remain at her side and become her second-in-command. (I totally squeed when I saw how well she drew the modded Grey Warden armor on these two. Isn't she so talented?!)

2) What they like most about each other: If you asked each of them that question, they would turn into puddles of goo and gush about one another in a rambling way until they both summed up how they saw one another in the same single word: perfect.

3) What they fight about: The way Varia initially trusted people so easily. Alistair objected to pretty much every addition to their team at the start of their journey following the Battle of Ostagar. Morrigan was a bitch, Leliana was crazy, Sten killed an entire family, and Zevran tried to kill them. The one exception? He liked the dog.

4) What happens when they get drunk together: Varia and Alistair are both rather amorous drunks, and totally lose their inhibitions with one another while forgetting about where they are or who else might be around them. Trust me... without Leliana's eventual intervention, he totally would have had her right there up against the wall of the tavern.

5) What they like to do together: Stargazing is something Varia's loved doing since childhood, and it's one thing they can do together which will help them get away from the others while also remaining relatively close to camp. They also continue to go off together to look at the stars after the end of the Blight, when they need to get away from the stresses of their new lives as the joint heads of the Ferelden Grey Wardens and the Arl and Arlessa of Amaranthine. Needless to say, though... sometimes they end up doing a bit more than just looking at the stars. ;)

6) How they fell in love: Varia had her heart broken by Cullen when they rescued him at the tower, and Alistair was a bit nervous about making his move so soon after that. A lot of the time, he was a yammering mess around her because he couldn't think straight. (He's not quite as bad in the story as he appears in this, though.) Then he told Varia how he felt and gave her a rose for her birthday and she reciprocated his feelings, much to his delight.

7) Gender-bender: Not really much to explain here. It seems that sometimes even mages can get potions mixed up, though.

8) A serious kiss: The kiss from their wedding. The Revered Mother hadn't even finished telling Alistair he could kiss his bride before they were in each other's arms, sharing their first kiss as husband and wife.

9) Strongest one lifts the other over their head: This one requires a bit of an explanation. The first time Varia and Alistair met was in Redcliffe, when she was four years old and he was nine. He carried her on his shoulders while they were playing together the one afternoon they spent with one another before she was sent to the Circle and he went to the Denerim chantry. Which is why now, more than a dozen years later, she weighs a lot more than she did the last time he carried her like that.

10) Unfulfilled fantasies: Alistair has heard of a little game called, "The Helpless Templar and the Desire Demon," and he would love to play it with Varia sometime.

11) Who wins at strip poker: Zevran. Every time. Mostly because he cheats. I know... he's not a member of the couple, but he always seems to be the one to instigate such things. And no matter which of the members of the couple loses, he gets a nice little show.

12) Say goodbye and tag: Look! It's little Duncan! His mommy is holding him while his daddy is showing him how to wave bye-bye. :love: No tags, because I think most of my friends on here are fellow writers...

lol... It's true. He hits on her and later sort of has a freak-out moment when she finds out they're related and tells him. (He doesn't move on to Alistair, though he does like to tease him, sometimes.)

lol... I actually thought of this after I made my last comment, but if Alistair tried to pass himself off as another relative of Zeran's, I could see it going something like this:

Alistair: "I'm your cousin, too."
Zevran: "Is that so?"
Alisair: "Yep. Totally your cousin."
Zevran: "So... She is my cousin, and so are you?"
Alistair: "That's right."
Zevran: *turns back to Varia* "It seems you are already sleeping with your cousin, so I still have a chance."
Varia: *glares at Alistair* "Not any more, I won't be."
Alistair: *same oh shit face as before*

But of course. Zevran and Isabela have nooo sense of boundries lol.
It's always the rogues that are slutty, too. Three of them. And mages are always at least a little crazy.

ParisWriter Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I don't think Nate would be very slutty, though. He seems a bit too honorable for that. And Varric is a one-woman man, too. Sigrun... Maybe. But she wouldn't be as open about it as Zev and Isabela. ;)

And I resent that remark about mages always being crazy! :p

:iconicywintersky:
icywintersky Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013
Lol ok, Bioware cannon mages are always at least a little crazy. Varia seems awesome. Good point about Nate though (unfortunate though it may be, he is not even romance-able). Sigrun clearly had a past...and Varric, while devoted entirely to Bianca, is still a wicked flirt.

God, I WISH Nate was a romance option! If Nate and Anders had been LIs in Awakening... My Cousland would have totally cheated on her dear King Alistair eith Nate and I would have made another mage Warden just for Anders.
Reply
:iconicywintersky:
icywintersky Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2013
Between Nate and (Awakening) Anders, my Warden would have had some questionable morals regarding her other relationships. My Warden that romanced Zevran probably wouldn't have had a problem though lol. Side question: how many mage Wardens do you have?
Reply
:iconpariswriter:
ParisWriter Featured By Owner Feb 28, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Only one mage. Actually... I have two, but I never got the second one out of the tower, lol. He was meant to be my "I'm a fucking asshole and everyone is going to HATE me - except probably Morrigan" playthrough. He's an elf named Kaelthas. ;)

For now, lol... He's probably about one or two there. Once he's around four or five he'll start copying Zevran's (modded) hairstyle.

Ah, cool. Just out of curiosity, why did you mod Zevran's hairstyle in the first place? Just personal taste?

ParisWriter Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
Yes. I hate his vanilla hair. :iconmryuckplz: (Actually... while all of the companions in this meme are drawn in their vanilla style - NONE of them look like that in my game. :XD:)

I like this hairstyle MUCH better for Zevran: [link] - More roguish, I think. And that's the style Duncan copies when he's a little older.

XxBefore-I-SleepxX Featured By Owner Feb 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Makes sense. That hairstyle does look more rougish. :nod: I like Zevran's vanilla hair...but maybe that's because I have an odd thing for men with long hair... ^^;

ParisWriter Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
I couldn't look at him with his vanilla hair without being like, "Ugh... it looks like an elven Cailan! SO WRONG!" :XD:

(I also don't like the mod which gives Alistair that hairstyle. :icondonotwantplz:)

XxBefore-I-SleepxX Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
:rofl: You know, I never saw it as an elven Cailan. And Alistair's hairstyle just suits him too much for me to want to change it at all! If I ever played on PC, that is...
Reply
:iconpariswriter:
ParisWriter Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2013  Hobbyist Writer
But if you modded Alistair's hair to be the same style as Zevran/Cailan... it would make that one banter SO FUNNY between Alistair and Zevran. You know... the one where Alistair tells Zevran he likes his hair just fine and Zev is like, "Really? Suit yourself." If that situation ever presented itself I would have been like, "You realize you guys have the SAME HAIR, right?"
