    “Leandra would be happy to see you,” Hawke said. It was a small thing to say but it help meaning for Merrill. Perhaps more meaning than Hawke understood. It was hard to tell if she was good with people out of sheer charisma and luck, or if something else was going on. Part of the charm, really...

    Fancy Pants

    Hey folks. I'm getting ready to travel to the West Coast and give a talk at a conference, alongside some other stuff. The whole lead up to this and the week of the conference itself means I've not really been able to post. I know the Warden thread is moving forward. For that, I ask that someone...

    “He owes you an apolo…” Merrill was already finding ways to tell Aveline that it really was fine and that she didn't need an apology when the man lunged at her friend in a fit that could only be described as scarf frenzy. She didn't necessarily blame him—it was a very nice scarf—but Merrill also...

    “Maybe that’s how it started, helping him to heal,” Varric thought aloud after Merrill explained spirit healing. “Did he ever mention anything to you about it?” The elf shook her head. While Anders was a friend, they weren't exactly close enough to talk about such intimate magic. She could...

    Lost in Lowtown [Closed]

    Where was she going? Merrill looked out over the crowded streets and suddenly found herself all but lost within the throng of people. There was a fruit stand that she enjoyed, friendly to elves and with less rotting options littered about than most stalls. For the life of her, she couldn't quite...

    “Why make deals with them at all?” Varric question had simple answer and complicated ones. Merrill preferred the complicated ones; they didn't paint all dealings with demons as a moral failing or horrendous crime. Spirits always had their own agendas, but if your needs matched up with their own...

    "You're cute. But the scarf's mine, saavy? Ain't never seen no shade of green like it. So unless you want to lose some teeth, best you let it go." Merrill agreed that the scarf had a very wonderful shade to it, which was partially why she wanted it back. But that agreement left her at odds with...

    "You matter to me too, Merrill." It made the elf's heart leap before sinking to an entirely new low. Hawke had changed her life. Saved her, really. From ridicule and ostracizing, from being an outcast, from being alone. In some cases it was also more literal: she'd also saved Merrill from...

    “She couldn’t do better than you,” Varric said. If it was supposed to help her, it only made the pain in her heart swell again. Merrill asked herself one question more often than any other: what is so wrong with me? She never could figure out the answer because in spite of comments like...

    November Featured Character Nominations

    I'd like to nominate Sofia di Castelbuono. They've made a grand entrance to the forums and are a character that I've been dying to interact with. Flashy, fun, and a bit presumptuous. Great stuff! I'd also like to nominate Harmon Cabot. He is very adorable and I'm so glad to see him getting...

    You're Under... A Desk [Closed]

    (Scarf Man color code: #c2e3d6) Merrill shared her pessimistic—some might say realistic—assessment of the Templars. It was a subject that robbed the elf of her characteristic good cheer. Not even she could maintain her smile at the thought of stomping armor and magical surpression. She feared...

    Walking A-Boat [Closed]

    "Merrill, please..." It hurt to hear Hawke try to fix the situation and as her friend tried to assuage her, Merrill could do little more than try to run away faster. What a mistake this has been. Merrill thought she might simply run off without another word said, but she stumbled and in that...

    “I’m sorry, Daisy." Varric's words meant more than Merrill could ever really express but they didn't stop her lasting embarrassment and pain. The elf care so much, in all things, and her recent debacle had left her reeling. It had taken everything to put herself out there and speak her mind. It...

    “Nicodemus? Templeton? Ben?” Varric names were as verbose as his prose, with the exception of Ben. Merrill giggles but shook her head. None of the seemed to really fit. The dwarf seemed to notice her disagreement. “I’ll think of something," Varric added. His voice's gravel sounded even more...

    “Come on, let’s get some space between them and us,” Aveline was quick to guide them away from the Templars, patrol-hardened feet moving through the city streets with an ease and familiarity that Merrill could only dream of. The elf kept close, almost bumping into her friend a few times, and...
