A Grey Warden is Born: Kaylan’s Dragon Age Epic Begins

As I play Dragon Age Origins, I’ve kept my phone close and put my initial thoughts in my phone’s notepad. Here they are so far:

My name is Käylæn and I am a rogue elf. I like to live in the city…aaaaand I’m being forced to marry a stranger, booyah, off to a great start. From rags to riches here I come!

Käylæn

fuuuuuucccckkkk why did I pick the creepy rapey beginning?? Ffffff, ugh, power through this. Like, I thought this was a synopsis of my past, not that I would play… And like that description said something about a surprise interruption or something ruins my wedding? All I know is nothing in that choose-your-origin blurb said “friends kidnapped,” “friend’s throat slit,” and “oh yeah let’s throw in a part where your friends get raped.”

no no no no

Ughhhhhhhh my traumatized elf will drag herself around to focus on something else. Might as well become a Grey Warden or whatever, anything to forget

DUNCAN DUNCAN DUNCAN LEMME TOUCH YO BEARD! It is so beautiful. Can I romance you, I WANNNA Continue reading A Grey Warden is Born: Kaylan’s Dragon Age Epic Begins

I posted a fictionalized account on Friday of my experiences going to GameStop. And afterwards my real boyfriend read it and said, “Do I really do that?”

So I wanted to take a few minutes to tell you the differences between the fictionalized version of my boyfriend in the story and my actual boyfriend, whose name is Mike and not “Boyfriend.” Here are the facts.

The Countdown to Dragon Age: Inquisition

dai

What are you doing while you wait for the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition? Me? I’m waiting. And waiting. And waiting. I can’t even play other video games because all I want is Dragon Age: Inquisition, and everything else feels like a lame substitution, like when someone says, “Don’t eat that ice cream. Have this cup of plain yogurt instead to satisfy those dessert cravings.” It’s like, “SHUT UP, DOOFUS.” While we wait in the mutual agreement that waiting is a crock, let’s look at this collection of gifs you can use when someone asks you what you’re doing with your time prior to the release of Dragon Age: Inquisition.

How to Get Your Own Ser Pounce-a-Lot in Time for Halloween

Sir Pounce-a-Lot, Ferelden’s king of the cats.

I was 3/4 of the way through Dragon Age: Awakening when I got a frantic text from Jennifer Culp. “GO BACK AND START FROM THE BEGINNING. I DON’T CARE HOW FAR YOU ARE. JUST DO IT.”

I responded with something glib like, “LOL NOPE.” But soon I understood that I’d made a huge mistake. By releasing Anders and denying him entrance to the Grey Wardens, which I didn’t think was a huge deal at the time I did it, I had lost Ser Pounce-a-Lot. Within four hours of realizing this mistake, I decided I did want to start over.

And so back to the beginning I went.
