If Dragon age: origins and Dragon age 2 characters worked together banter
Alistair and Bethany
(After both Alistair and Bethany are recruited)
Alistair: so you’re an Apostate
Bethany: is that a problem for you?
Alistair: that depends, is the fact that I used to be a Templar a problem for you?
Bethany: that depends, are you going to try to kill me or drag me to the Circle for the crime of being born
Bethany: then you’re not a problem to me
Alistair: and you’re not a problem to me
Bethany: that’s good
Alistair: yes, good talk
Alistair: Bethany, about Carver, I’m so sorry
Bethany: he died protecting those he loved, it was a noble death
Alistair: I know but still he didn’t deserve what happened to him
Bethany: thank you, for all it’s worth Duncan didn’t deserve what happened to him either
Alistair: thank you, I’ll make sure Carver gets a proper funeral service once this is all over
Bethany: and Duncan as well
Alistair: of course
(After a battle if Bethany used Force Magic)
Alistair: what was that Magic? You made that guy/Darkspawn hit the ground so hard his/its head burst
Bethany: my father used to call it ‘Force Magic’, Magic in its rawest form, with it I can lift things up with my mind and toss them around as I see fit, it takes a lot of concentration to master
Alistair: wow, so you can lift and throw anything with it?
Bethany: well the heavier the object the more of a strain it causes so I do have limits with it, I could lift you easily though, Sten at a stretch
(if Sten is in the party)
Sten: if you try you will regret it
(if Isabela is in the party)
Isabela: now that I would pay to see
(if Varric is in the party)
Varric: Alistair flying through the air cutting through the enemy like a shooting star? Even I couldn’t make shit like that seem believable
(If Shale has been recruited and is in the party)
Alistair: so you couldn’t lift and throw Shale then?
Bethany: unless you want me out of commission for the rest of the day unfortunately no
Shale: hmmmm, it would have been interesting to see the look on our enemies face when I came crashing down on them and reduced them to a fine paste, ah well there’s always jumping off a cliff onto them to satisfy that curiosity
Bethany: was the Joining painful Alistair?
Alistair: I don’t remember much of my Joining, the main thing I remember was how terrible the Darkspawn blood tasted and how it felt like fire in my throat, I had visions but I can’t remember them clearly, I guess the nightmares I sometimes get are the same as the visions I got during my Joining
Bethany: what do you see?
Alistair: Darkspawn, the Arch Demon, death, destruction, everything that will happen if we fail
Bethany: then we had better not fail
Bethany: were you and Duncan close Alistair?
Alistair: he was like a father to me, my real father was never around and my mother died giving birth to me and even when I was raised by Arl Eomon I didn’t feel like I was part of a family, then Duncan came and brought me into the Grey Wardens and I finally felt like I belonged….and then Loghain happened
Bethany: I’m sorry, I didn’t know you two were so close, I just thought he was your mentor
Alistair: don’t be, you didn’t know, anyway you never told me what your father was like
Bethany: he was a good man, he was an Apostate all his life and was nearly caught by Templars when he was courting Mother but escaped with the help of a Templar by the name of Ser Carver, he married my Mother and had me, my brother/sister and Carver, he was the one that taught me how to use my Magic so that I would never have to go to a Circle, he died three years ago sadly
Alistair: he sounds like he was a good man
Bethany: as did Duncan
(In the Circle of Magi)
Bethany: so this is what the Circle is like, no wonder the Mages here rebelled
Alistair: all Circles are different depending on where they are situated, this was one of the more lenient Circles as far as I was told
Bethany: how could it have been lenient here? Circles are prisons for Mages
Alistair: this Circle was more of a school than a prison, Mages here where taught how to master their magic under Templar supervision, they had free reign around the Tower and where allowed outside with Templar escorts to aide with anything that needed magical assistance, the couple of times I visited in my early Templar training the Mages seemed quite content here, though that might just be the fact that they knew nothing else in life
Bethany: the way you say it makes it seem not so bad
(If Anders is in the party)
Anders: don’t listen to him, lenient or not Circles are nothing more than prisons, the last place any Mages wants or deserves to be
Alistair: Circles are there to protect Mages, to teach them how to use their powers without risk and contain those who are a danger to the public
Anders: tell that to the Templars
Bethany: I think I’ll just count my blessings that I never ended up here
(If the surrendering Blood Mage is let go)
Bethany: you’re really ok with the Warden letting that Blood Mage go free? What if she does more damage elsewhere?
Alistair: it may not make sense now but sometimes it’s better to show mercy than to exact swift justice, maybe she was telling the truth and she just was just rebelling, maybe she was truly evil, either way she’ll either never use Blood Magic again or will find herself on the end of a Templars Sword, hopefully the fact that we spared her will make her learn towards the former
Bethany: I didn’t see it like that, I hope you’re right
(Random banter after Bethany and Sebastian’s ‘flirting’ if Sebastian isn’t in the party)
Alistair: so you and Sebastian huh? What’s going on there?
Bethany: nothing’s ‘going on’ between us, we were just talking
Alistair: yeah right, you two are like two little love birds dancing around each other
Bethany: I have no idea what you’re taking about
Alistair: he said he likes your eyes
Bethany: did he?
Alistair: ha! Got you!
Bethany: damn! Find you got me, he is handsome isn’t he?
Alistair: can’t really judge that myself but you two would make a good couple
(If Varric is in the party)
Varric: Alistair playing match maker with Sunshine and Choir Boy? You heard it here first folks!
(If Oghren is in the party)
Oghren: *belches* I call dibs on front row seats when they final start rutting
Bethany: you will not!
(if Morrigan is in the party)
Morrigan: *scoffs* tis sickening to have to listen to this, just have your way with him and be done with it
(After Alistair’s royal heritage is revealed)
Alistair: you keep laughing, what’s so funny?
Bethany: nothing….your majesty
Alistair: I shouldn’t have asked
Bethany: oh lighten up, I was only teasing
Alistair: well please don’t, I don’t want to be king, I’m the last person Ferelden needs as a ruler
Bethany: you’re too hard on yourself, you’d make a great king, fair, kind and just
Alistair: yeah and how long do those kind of kings normally last before ending up with a dagger in the back?
(If Zevran is in the party)
Zevran: it depends on how much I am paid, a good price less than a week, a low price I let him enjoy his reign for a month or two
Alistair: not funny
