Instead of doing anything productive with my weekend I hid from reality on the sofa under a pile of blankets. Somewhere along the way, I started thinking about an AU where Morrigan managed to successfully transfer the Dark Ritual to Elissa. Obviously, she’d have remained in Ferelden if it had worked, instead of running away either in anger (if turned down) or with the child (if the offer was taken). What sort of role would she end up having in that scenario? Adviser to the monarchs? Tutor and additional guardian to the prince, since the child is much more than just the crown prince of Ferelden? Both/neither/something else? Makes me wonder. Also makes me wonder how… heated… the discussion was where Elissa points out that if Morrigan is going to stay at court with them, she probably actually should dress appropriately for her position.
“Modern” elves in Thedas have lost their immortality, but what about the elders who already entered uthenera? Are they still capable of rewaking, and if so would they still be immortal?
