hey did you know there's a band called the pigeon detectives
I DID NOT BUT THAT IS DELIGHTFUL
foiled again by my own pickiness in fic
I know 'amatus' is bc they can't possibly record every single combination of letters that might be used as a PC's name, but consider: Dorian with a Thing for pet names now that he's Allowed to be open about actual affection towards men
tangentially, the canon syllabic emphasis in 'amatus' is directly opposite what my brain came up with while reading and I am SHOCKED AND APPALLED every time
...where is the canon stress I gotta know now
my read: ə-MA-tus
canon, apparently: AH-mə-tus
... huh. He says it slightly closer to the first one in the trespasser bits when speaking to bull, if I'm not entirely mistaken and editing this horrid bullshit out of my memory :P
it is very distinctly the second in his normal dialogue in the library-- if you ask him for Smooch once in Proper Romansu he goes "You only have to ask.... amatus :)"
meanwhile, me, a parody of myself
all the colors in the world in this draft and I'm STILL playing dimir
Huh, that's actually exactly what I expected? Weird I'm normally way off
ghilan absolutely prays to any relevant Creators before entering ancient elven ruins/sites
they are particularly distraught at the desecration of Din'an Hanin >:)
to be fair, Din'an Hanin is really upsetting
not as upsetting as dirthamen's lost temple tho :')
they haven't gotten there yet
but soon >:D
honestly the number of jokes dorian makes about your gleeful murder of npc enemies are the one (1) thing I would excessively change in the Extended Soap Opera, bc they absolutely hit ghilan in a sore spot they'd feel pressed to defend instead of taking as part of dorian's normal sass
I don't think I've actually mentioned it here but there is a two-week cycle of private dinners with All the companions and advisors, plus two nights for required Formal Events
fuck knows when ghilan would actually be able to stick around for two weeks at a go, but the pattern exists and gets picked up wherever they left off
yeah it's definitely something I'd adjust for the relevant Inquisitor in fic, always. Atish'an probably joked right back, given she is a feral murder child, but brejan probably started crying the first time he tried that and I can't imagine dorian is heartless enough to continue hitting the sore spot of someone when he knows, much less someone who looks like brejan :P
all of my inquisitors have Family Dinners For The Whole Family, I'm pretty sure I actually have a fic snippet somewhere of Atish'an starting it way back in Haven by cramming a table into her tiny house and just deciding everyone would come eat together Or Else.
I was thinking one-on-ones ranging from Wooing Dorian to Goddammit Cullen Eat Something You're Mortal, but FAMILY DINNER IS CANON NOW TOO
