Okay, so, question: Anyone ever run into a DAO bug that makes Alistair's romance not start? I know Leliana's can be missed if you say the wrong thing(or maybe they patched it...), but I've never run into anything like that with Alistair before. Not that it's a problem this time, exactly, just weird...
Okay, background: out of the batch of Wardens I've made on my laptop, the ones I've been playing the most are Aite(Brosca) and Helena(Tabris). Helena romance Jowan, and Aite romanced Zevran. With Helena, I never triggered Alistair's romance. EVER. It didn't start. She never got offered the rose, and he's just treated her like they're BFFs(which they are). And I did talk to him a lot. Like every chance I had. Aite, on the other hand, did get offered the rose, very clearly
turned him down and said she wasn't interested, only for the jealousy convo to trigger much later in the game. I'm sitting there staring and the screen going 'WTF dude, she already told you she wasn't interested. WHERE IS THIS COMING FROM?!' I think I picked pretty much all the same dialogue choices with him for both girls(nice/joking, but not flirting), so all I can think is that a bug is responsible?
So, I was just curious if anyone's encountered such a thing, because I never have before.
I also am still trying to figure out what I'm going to do with Marta for the endgame, so there will probably be a very long stream-of-consciousness/arguing with myself journal entry for that in the not too distant future.
And I'm reading back through all my Rahna-verse stuff, and I gotta say, aside from being sort of proud at how I handled the growth of her relationship with Jowan(it was tricky, and I pulled it off, I am allowed to be pleased with myself XD), I'm really being reminded why I love Gabriel so much. Enough that I may possibly recreate him in Awakening. Because I can.
And I don't have enough Wardens running alreadyEDIT: *cough* Oh, look, I'm weak in the face of kickass redhead elves... He may or may not be 3/4 of the way through(*whistles innocently*), and is very definitely modeled off Aaron Tveit now. HeLp
...And I need to work on OWaP. GAH Maker, there aren't enough hours in the day...
