This is my tumblr. There are many like it, but this one is mine.
(Just a heads up for anyone who I follow: I have a habit of going through every page of someone's tumblr if I start following them, looking for things that amuse/interest me. I'm starting to realize that this might seem a bit creepy, so I apologize in advance.)
Now, I don’t pretend to know that Varric is certainly going to be an LI, but lots of things are giving me hope, and I thought I’d share my reasoning.
1. He is super popular. Varric has a massive fan following, and the developers know this. Talli and Garrus were made LI’s partially because of their popularity with ME fans, so never let it be said that fan opinion has no sway.
2. He was almost a sort-of-LI. He does get to flirt with Hawke a few times, and the developers, quote: ‘almost slipped something in at the end there’. Apparently they were going to have a scene where Varric meets up with Hawke after Cassandra’s interrogation, and is all, “Don’t worry, I didn’t tell her about US.” If they were on the fence last time, maybe they can go there this time.
3. Varric is the only character amongst the companions with a KNOWN racial preference. We know two of the LI’s are going to be race-gated, and with Iron Bull and Josephine confirmed as non-race-gated, the pool’s looking narrower. My money’s on Varric being one of the race-gated LI’s.
4. He balances things out. Having, say, Vivienne and Blackwall be the last two romance options would make the LI group very human-heavy (and warrior-heavy, if class is going to be a balancing factor). That’d mean we’d only get two non-human romance options out of eight— Sera and Iron Bull. Admittedly, Origins only had one non-human romance option, but DA2 had two, and I find it difficult to believe they’d only give us two non-human options this time around when the cast is so huge (Of course, Solas is also a factor). If they’re looking for balance, having Vivienne and Varric be the last two LI’s would mean that there are an equal number of male and female LI’s, two advisor LI’s, two warrior LI’s, two rogue LI’s, and two mage LI’s. Also, that’d make 3 non-human LI’s out of eight— decently balanced.
5. I mean… they haven’t said no. They’ve gone out and confirmed Leliana and Cole as no-goes.
6. It’ll be the first time we’ve been able to romance a dwarf. We’re getting a Qunari romance now. That gives me hope.
7. They made Varric’s face super pretty. I know it seems like I’m stretching here, but really. That is one fine mug they’ve rendered.
Fingers crossed, everyone.
I had my father get sick when I was 22. And I was poor, alright. And my father had an ulcer, and it exploded and you know all these toxins get in your blood. And basically, my father died, whatever, 50 days after his ulcer. So I had a father get sick while I was poor.
My mother got sick when I was rich. And my mother, you know… I don’t really want to get into it, but my mother was sicker than my father. And my mother’s alive. My mother’s fine, OK? I remember going to the hospital to see my mother and wondering, ‘Was I in the right place?’ Like, this was a hotel. Like it had a concierge, man.
People don’t… if the average person really knew the discrepancy in the health care system, there’d be riots in the streets, OK? They would burn this motherfucker down!”

Why was Jeff like, “Derek’s going to be with somebody who isn’t a psychotic murderer”, and then put him with Braeden?
Braeden is a psychotic murderer who would legit kill people for food…..FOOD.
