the thing i love about Origins though is the introduction to characters like this master assassin is sent to kill you but cause he’s too shit at what he does for a living he ends up saving the world instead and thats pretty awesome imo
sometimes you go into a game for the first time knowing who you’re going to romance, who you’re going to like and who you’re never going to bring with you
and sometimes you even follow through with it
but then there are other times, the times that another character steals your breath, pulls the rug from under your feet without even trying
maybe it’s their voice, or their crooked smile, or the layers of pain-hardened armor they keep around their heart and the glimpses of softness you see little by little
those characters, the ones who surprise you - those are the ones who hold on tight. those are the best.
