It's Who We Choose to Be After We Are Scarred That Matters
These are characters in the Dragon Age universe we are familiar with, in a story we have experienced in a different light, where the Hero of Ferelden is dragged into the mage Anders's plot to fight back against an oppressive tyranny. The dialogue in this story is powerful; this is a character-driven plot and there is a draw to see them interact and unfold in new ways, and especially focuses on an exchange of philosophies and life lessons. The story does feel like it is told in a very narrow scope, of which limits the conviction of it to a certain extent. However, paperclippe is definitely an author I would continue reading, if not to read one more scene about how compelling toast and eggs can be.
