Nonverbal RP Starters
✧️– There are seas between her and home. If one could call such a place that... the dominion she’s shaped in his honor. No... in his retribution. In that distant island country does his grave await her. Awaiting offerings of chrysanthemum, candles, and deep reflection.
But not this year.
Instead Satsuki has sacrificed yet another piece of herself in her conquest. Father can wait, she tells herself as unsteady hands flood the glass with scotch. Endure this country of heathens... this city of damned. How she loathes these streets and these people -- how it sickens the tongue to play cordial, when they belonged under her firm foot! She hated it here. And she couldn’t hate it more knowing that day was tomorrow.
Something dribbles down her chin into her cup, causing ripples in the liquor. It startles her, but not as much as the hand at her shoulder. As quickly as it comes does her own palm CRUSH the glass, bringing the broken remains of her drink near her surprise guest’s throat to threaten them. Only to blanch when her teary eyes fall upon Luna Basquerville, herself.
How... does this woman manage to catch her off guard so often? How could Satsuki allow herself to be so vulnerable before her? She cannot even bark at her to leave her be -- let her wallow at her bar in solitude -- because her bottom lip trembles too hard.
"What do you want from me...?” Wavering. Pathetic. As if a simpering spoiled princess like her could properly avenge her father in this undue state... the glass, and her bloody palm, are lowered.

1, 8, 65, 66 for the DA asks? 👀
Ready for me to gush about this wonderful/flawed franchise? >:D I love DA so much, but we all can pinpoint the parts that are...less fulfilling. Though, I think that's why we love it! XD
Thank you for that ask! <3
1. How did you get into Dragon Age?
Once upon a time, I was one of those people that really, really, really loved Let's plays or walkthroughs (I still do, but mainly streams XD). So, one day, I stumbled upon a video titled 'Dragon Age: Origins', and I can't really remember if it was a compilation or one part of a play through, but I watched it and I was like, "Wow! This is really interesting! I wish I could play it!" (I didn't have the proper console for the game, at the time).
However! Origins wasn't my first Dragon Age; DA2 was! >:D I think I watched some romance compilations and dialogue compilations and I was like, "I need to buy this game. I have to play it. I have to." And I did! Do I regret my knowing walk into Hell? No way. Dragon Age has a lot of good messages, and it's why I'm one of the people that is like, "DA2 was really good. There are some areas that could have been better, but who cares about the repeated areas? It honestly makes sense because you're in ONE area for YEARS." So, I got into Dragon Age by spoiling myself, mainly. XD
8. Preferred class overall?
I used to lean towards Mage until recently (Fane is the blame XD), but in Inquisition I do really like playing a mage because I like doing A LOT of crowd control and combos. But I have a soft spot for Warrior now because HNNNNGH REAVERS. *bangs table excitedly*
65. Any epic game play moments in any DA game?
I wish I would have recorded this one time in Inquisition when I was playing with Fane.
So, basically, locked in a battle with those fucking guardsmen enemies and I was like, "I can't kick! I can't roll around fast enough! Fane keeps falling on his ass! Which isn't anything surprising, but come on!" And as if to spite me, give me the big old F. U., I hit the trigger for a basic attack and hit the button I had Dragon Rage on and FLY LITTLE GUARDSMEN FLY! I think he got absorbed into the Veil because he was GONE.
....I still got the loot, too. :3 Fane pretty much said, "Try me again. I DARE YOU."
66. Something you hate about any/all of the games?
So this is more directed towards DA2 and Inquisition because Origins had it right, and that is the dialogue options. As we all know, I am a person who THRIVES on fleshing out and personalizing my characters, so the tiny wheel of three emotions and not at all what you think your character would say makes my brain go, "STOP IT." Like all I want is for the Fane to lose his shit ONE TIME and not just in Trespasser when you literally tell your advisors and all of THEDAS to shut. the. fuck. up. Like that is the only, only, only time I feel as if Fane is in 100% character. And I want more of that!
Bioware, give me long lists of dialogue options to choose from. I'm BEGGING you.
