Dragon Age: Our Undoing by croaky Dragon Age: Our Undoing by croaky
The taint, the dark music; It is our duty… and our undoing.” — Dragon Age: Origins/Awakening/Epilogue, Warden Laran Cousland and Zevran Arainai.

An experiment of sorts. Lots of potential story and way too much work we’ll file it under learning process. And older!Zevran with long hair.

This is really beautiful!!! I've always wanted to see a scene like that and wondered how a love Interest (preferably Zevran! ^^) would react. What it would do to them seeing a loved one like that... sadly Bioware didn't do it so thank you for drawing this!!

*SPOILER WARNING FOR Dragon Age*

You know...taking in the taint after the final boss was the cinematic I always wanted at the end of the game for my Warden, but never got. It's fantastic to see it rendered in more detail here. Wouldn't it be something if a Warden could somehow live through that? Though I kind of doubt they'd be the same afterwards.

Aaah such story potential! I do so love your renditions of Zev. My char ended up with him too...sorta...after stringing Alistair along a bit. ahah she broke a LOT of hearts by the end.

I always love to see more of these two and their story, so consider this my endorsement of this distraction! :thumbsup:

it's the truth. I like zevran with a male partner. i dont know why. I have a feeling that situations become more intensive if you play a male warden kind shy or one who have problems with zevran being a male/elf. I think story become more interesting in that way. anyway, it's my personal opinion. A noble human made story very interesting too. A human (noble) and an elf. complications are good for stories :P . I realized it cos your comic. And of course, the tragedy of being a Gray Warden and the eventually Calling coming make it more insteresting yet.
Anyway, i wanted to encourage you to continue the story and the art of zevran and laran. You cant find the same amount of material about zevran and m!warden than zevran with f!warden. This is a frustrating unbalance.
Anyway, Thank again for drawing zevran and laran :D

So true. Though sometimes I wish I could have a streak of ups as I have a streak of downs. Don't you? Maybe that's why I like art. Lol, sorry I let my thoughts wander there for a moment. Hey btw if you ever wanna talk feel free to note me. I'm the designated "shoulder to cry on" for most of my friends. *shrugs* no idea why but it seems to work out hahaha.
