This is based on Lady Eadith Cousland and Ser Roland Gilmore (Dragon Age: Origins). Oh, I do love a good star-crossed romance...
I started this forever ago and have spent almost that much time on it. (2013: Kind of want to go back over it with all my cool new brushes and smooth it out but it may have to just stay that way for now. Oh well, I liked it at the time! xD)
(Adele seems to be singing all of Eydie's theme songs hehe...)
~Set Fire to the Rain~ My hands, they're strong But my knees were far too weak To stand in your arms Without falling to your feet ... When I fell something died 'Cause I knew that that was the last time The last time
some random textures in the background, including pattern by
well, the nickname 'Rory' sure makes a lot more sense with Roderick, hehe! But I'm so confused, now! Did I really just get 'Roland' from the mod?? I swear I thought that was his name before I knew there was a mod. (I do remember reading that "Roderick" on there for the Prima Strategy guide when I was stalking doing research... but for whatever reason I just shrugged it off as an inconsistency/oversight. xD Have any devs weighed in?)
But, uh, yeah, whatever! I'm glad you like it; thank you!! (and now that I've got all these cool new CS5 brushes, I want to come back and work on this some more, ooooh... I had almost forgotten about it! x3)
I mean, I dunno. EVERYONE calls him Rory, but officially he's Roderick, which is a WAY sexier name than Roland.I am such a dork...
Like, if you look up art, they all call him Roland It's Fannon, I guess?? But not actually cannon... i just really don't like that name.... But Rory is sexy as fuck no matter what the name! A Rory by any name would smell just as sweet! XD (obligatory Romeo and Juliette reference for the star-crossed lovin!)
You did a great job. I shouldn't have said anything. :>
noooooo it's totally cool; no worries! ^^ (the only reason I *could* do a great job is if I'm super-nitpicky about little details like that, so I have nothing against anyone else doing the same--in fact, I appreciate it! Much better than finding out after the fact, IMO... not that I will ever be able to finish that stupid fic, sigh. But if I do, I will make sure to adjust his name. ;D )
and I agree about 'Roderick' being sexier we're all dorks here and I will prove it!! I'm just too used to thinking of him as 'Roland', now. >_>; Eydie always calls him 'Rory' unless she's being a bitch, then she will roll her eyes at him and call him 'Roland'....hahaha I don't know why, I just think of her using 'Roland' as almost an insult (it's kinda cute but a bit dorky to me ^^)... and I can't see her doing that with 'Roderick'. may be too sexy, arg... >_<
Heh. You can still call him Roland. I wouldn't worry about it. Like I said, everybody does, so it might even be easier like that.
I kind of want to make a new comic relating to the fact that every Rory fangirl gets his name wrong... hee hee hee...
I just don't call him Roland because I looked his name up BEFORE i started looking at art and fanfiction, so I have the opposite problem: I know his name is Roderick, and I like it that way, but nobody calls him that but me and a few other people... D':>
So I usually call him Rory when talking to other fangirls so that we are both calling him the same thing.
I just love the name Roderick though. @w@<3 Now THAT is a name for a knight in shinning armor!<3 >:] I SO wish he was romancable. I mean, I know there's the mod but... :I I dunno... it's like, I already headcannoned him being dead, and Couscous winding up with King Alistair, so it's pretty hard to rethink that.
Nathaniel was another Cousland cockblock, if you ask me.
Sigh. And Cullen was an Amell/Surana cockblock. And Gorrim was a Aeducan cockblock. And Nelaros was a Tabris cockblock. Teagan was an everybody cockblock. Actually, so was Nathaniel.
Why, Bioware!? WHY!?
But I was pretty heartbroken when I saw his corpse at Fort Drakon! ;_; Also, I know it was just thrown in there to make you jump a bit, but it occurred to me that a body could not POSSIBLY look that fresh unless it had died only hours ago. Seriously. The blood was even red. It was...fresh! DX Which means, if you had arrived a few hours ago, he would still be alive!!!! Yeah. Little miss Couscous was NOT happy about that one. Nope.
Anyway, I love your Cousland/Gilmore romance art! I always kind of pictured a Knight-Captain Cullen situation for Rory, where he stutters and fawns pines over Cousland, only to feel a little discouraged and jealous when she plays around with the other handsome guests, like that guy you can bang at the beginning of the story. As it turns out, I am a sadistic brat when it comes to Rory Gilmore! +w+
ooh sadistic brat, eh?? I really really wish I had my fic finished so I could force you to read it, haha! (seriously, though; I think you'd enjoy my Cousland x Gilmore relationship, twisted and tragic as it is. x3)
I thought I heard Cullen was going to be in DA3 (as a LI??!)...? Wish they could come up with something for our Rory, though; I think he deserves a much bigger piece of the story. And yeahhhh I have to agree about Nathaniel/Gorrim/Teagan/et al... Bioware sure does know how to create intriguing unattainable men. I guess that's where our mods/fanfic/fan art comes in... :3
I'm following you on DA, so if you ever finish,let me know! ;3
Man, I love Gilmore...
And yes, she was QUITE the brat. I have an askblog that's run by her and Alistair, and I do so adore making her comically bratty! >:]
Yeah! That's the word on the street, anyways! Cullen concept art was part of the leaked survey, and Greg Ellis began voice acting months ago. They don't do that unless you're an important character! ~__0 We may FINALLY BE AVENGED!!! We MAY. I mean, like... they never confirmed he was a companion but his art was grouped in with possible companions AND come on. We have been begging for years and they are sort of pandering to the fans at this point. or at least they should, all things considered.
I would give it a healthy 80%+ chance that he's a companion and if he's a companion, he's sure as hell going to be an LI. Because, come on. The fangirl hate would be unstoppable if he wasn't.
If not, I will SHIP SHIP SHIP IT!! > like you said, mods,fanfics, and art will soothe the pain! ;w;
