CRUEL WEED’S THESIS (by Dekabricks)
few videos make me as happy as this one
Not enough people talk about how Important the “mage Hawke sides with the templars” ending is. I never paid much mind to it until I was going through my old gifsets and it hit me like a ton of bricks.
These are templars who’ve seen the worst of the worst. Templars who’ve seen what became of Orsino and what became of Meredith, who’ve heard of (if not witnessed directly) the explosion in the Chantry and heard shouts of who was behind the blast. And they’re visibly shaken by their Knight-Commander turning to a statue of gold right before their eyes, not knowing whether they should attack (stupid) or not.
Then Cullen takes a knee. Arguably the most powerful templar left alive in the Gallows drops to his knee and bows to Hawke. To Hawke who’s a mage. Because they’ve earned his deference, and through that, the deference of the templars as a whole.
"She is a hero, someone the templars respect…"
RESPECT!!! TEMPLARS RESPECTING A MAGE!!! A MAGE HAVING POWER AND NOT BEING CHASED OUT OF THE GALLOWS LIKE A CRIMINAL!!! IT’S SO COOL!!!
