36. Love Theme [BONUS] - The Pillars of the Earth Soundtrack - Trevor Morris (by Tranc3Luv3r)
This, for example, would make an awesome replacement love theme for the one in Dragon Age.
Forgive me for wanting to mess with the awesomeness that is Inon Zur’s OST, but sometimes you just want something a bit different.
Trevor Morris - The Pillars of The Earth - Main Titles/The Final Chapter / The Legacy Of Achievement (by Alex Chamorro)
I loved this series so much, and I love the music. Its a bit epic. If I knew how, I might try to swap some of the Dragon Age or Skyrim musical cues, because I think this could fit.
More things to love about the Prince of Starkhaven:
Sebastian’s reminiscent smile.
I was just thinking about Sebastian the other day. I remember I romanced Anders in my first run-through of DA2 and then offed him at the end because nobody betrays me like that, and nobody gets away with butchering innocents on my watch.
Next run I did Sebastian and he was a breath of fresh air, really. He’s not perfect but he gets better. Further, his story added so much depth to the whole Chantry/Templars/Mages business that made the climax of the game so much more tragic. The Exiled Prince really should not have been DLC; it should have been included in the game to begin with.
My only disappointment is no kiss/love scene with him due to the whole chastity vow thing. Really, I thought that was basically nullified since he’s now the only heir to the throne of Starkhaven and with that comes the duty of continuing the line…and we all know how dutiful Sebastian is, right? I actually have not played the post-game DLC (I can’t even think of the game of it) so maybe there is something there, but I’m not aware of it.
Pertinent to the current topic.
Look at that beard. It radiates warm roaring fires, long Canadian nights, flannel and bare skin.
Look how he caresses that gun. Embraces it. The trigger sure under his finger. A perfect expression of masculine pride.
The black armor screams a harder man. A man that seen a lot, and knows what he’s doing, confidant and capable.
The beard fits his face, like it was always meant to be there, telegraphing his raging testosterone, but tight discipline to groom it every morning.
The beard and Kaidan are one.
Shepard is just off camera, fanning her face, covering Liara’s poor innocent eyes from the obscenity that is Kaidan Alenko with a huge, hard gun, beard, and manly barrel chest.
“He’s a lumberjack, and he’s okay,
He sleeps all night and he works all day.
He cuts down trees, he eats his lunchHe goes to the lavatoryOn Wednesdays he goes shoppingAnd has buttered scones for tea!”
I think my Warden has a “thing” for Templars. First there was Cullen (yep, one of them “crazy” Cullen fans), then Alistair of course (can’t not love Alistair), now its Ser Bryant (dat voice!). There will be others along the way, of course, but these are in her “collection” right now.
She also quite likes Ser Donall. His admirable dedication to his lord and his mission regrettably took him away from her far too quickly.
Its amazing how Bioware is able to take minor characters and give them enough personality to make you wish for more of them. I so hope that DA3 continues in this vein, because I don’t remember much of this characterization being around in DA2.
Leliana: the Original Girl on Fire.
Also, I “fixed” my Warden’s face so she’s not quite so Barbie-fied.
So I’ve been re-playing Dragon Age: Origins. Am I the only one who thought Daveth was awesome and would have made an amazing Grey Warden? Sure he’s a bit superstitious (aren’t all Wardens anyway, to an extent) but that would change with exposure, but he’s definitely got the right attitude and knowledge. My Amell would totally have gotten with him if he hadn’t died.
I love that she looks like she’s about to lose her breakfast. Still a better reaction than Jory’s. Also, I didn’t intend for her to come out all Barbie-fied. I’m disappointed in that, but I’m too lazy to go back and re-do the face.
//Omg I hate Tumblr’s restrictive coding.//
Whenever I hear this song, I am reminded of Kaidan & Shepard. I think its perfect for them. Maybe I’m just cheesy like that.
Here you are
Made out of miracles
Perfection of your own
Oh so incredible
Each atom sings to me
Set me free
From chains of the physical
Oh free me
Oh free me

Gah, I feel like I have no free time. I work late now, come home and work out, then have dinner, shower, and by then its pretty much time to go to bed. I haven’t been able to touch ME for a few weeks now, and I don’t think I was on Tumblr at all these last two weeks. It sucks trying to catch up on stuff that is so old, and replying to anything seems awkward.
So I had a thought: What would Kaidan do if the Council assigned him to do something that hurt Earth/humanity? I can’t think of an example of that right now, but I’m just curious. Would his sense of duty/obligation as a Spectre prevail? Or would his loyalty to Earth and humanity be more important? I would like to say he’d tell the Council where they can shove it.
