Attack on Castle Cousland part 11 by RanmaCMH Attack on Castle Cousland part 11 by RanmaCMH
I think, at least for my Cousland, there was a never a moment when she didn't think she could save her parents.

Every origin story had a hard beginning, but when I started up my first fem Cousland I was literally in tears by the end (only other origin story to do so was the fem city elf one).  Even though you barely know this family before the attack, you can tell this was a family that loved each other very much.  Eleanor and Bryce's love could have been a story in and of itself.

I love so much that this was a good family. I hate that they die so tragically, but it makes it so much more real and meaningful.  I think at some point I will have to draw some younger Bryce/Eleanor pictures.  Because they are wonderful and they deserve it.

Oof, and that city elf origin is brutal too.

Oh man, I would LOVE to see some of Bryce/Eleanor early years!  I read through David Gaider's The Stolen Throne just trying to learn more about Bryce and was so disappointed he wasn't mentioned at all.  My head canon says they met in the war since she's a battlemaiden.  I also have it in my head that Rendon was rather jealous she didn't choose him, but that's just me.
In any case, thank you so much for such a beautiful collection!

I like that head canon.  I also imagined that he might have been in a betrothal to another noble woman when they met, I think she mentions using her womanly arts to get a husband or something along those lines… I just like the idea that they were hopelessly attracted to each other despite the odds.  And I totally agree about Rendon being jealous, I feel like his whole life is his attempt to achieve what Bryce did and only managing a shallow copy.  I feel like that really works with the narrative, and is even implied with the things he says.

This brought me back to when I play DAO the first time. I played as a fem Cousland, and the scene of her last moment with her parents brought me to tears.

You're doing an amazing job! Now I simply must put you on my list to watch so I can enjoy moar of these wonderful pictures. No dialogue only makes it better, since you captured the essence of 'A picture is worth a thousand words' beautifully (and heartrendingly too)

Thank you very much!  I think there may be something to letting the viewer "fill in" the dialogue.  I feel like that might be why playing as the Warden was so personal.  Instead of someone else doing the talking, your imagination filled in the voice.  So here, you know what they are saying to each other, and I don't have to ruin it with my poorly worded talk bubbles.

Ouch. This one brought tears to my eyes. Which is a good thing, it means you managed to let the message go through with this drawing. Wonderful!
