how hard is it to grasp that two characters hate each other? there’s no underlying sexual tension, there’s no secretly caring about each other but not wanting the other to know it. they just hate each other, pure and simple. WHAT IS SO HARD TO UNDERSTAND ABOUT THAT?
look all i can say is the “official” canon of anders being dead is clearly a rumor started by varric in order to protect the big lug. “you’re looking for the mage that blew up the kirkwall chantry, huh? you and what army? oh, i see. damn, that’s a big army you’ve got there. well, might as well send the soldiers home, because i have it on good authority that mage is officially dead. yeah, and tell all your friends.”
