Wedding Ring by WendyDoodles Wedding Ring by WendyDoodles
Dragon Age: Origins - City Elf Origin

What if Nelaros was able to stay alive for a few moments longer so you could speak to him, and he could give you the ring he made? I imagine the guards beat him up a little before stabbing him. :ohnoes:

"Nelaros...!" Tabris rushes to his side.

Her betrothed smiles weakly. "It's too late for me...but...I'm glad to see you are free now." He coughs between words, and holds his stomach in pain.

"Shh," she says. "We can get you home and get you to a healer." Tears blur her vision as she gazes in despair at his wounds.

Nelaros smiles softly and shakes his head. " must go without me." He then pulls something out of his vest pocket with a shaky hand. "I want you to have remember..."

His palm opens to reveal a delicate ring made of gold. The small gems twinkle in her eyes.

"Oh Nelaros..." She can't hold the tears back anymore and they stream down her cheeks.

He takes her hand with his and places the ring on her finger. His eyes meet hers with urgency, and he holds her hands firmly. "P-promise me you'll make it out of here...and--"

"--No. Please don't talk like that--"

His hands start to go limp, but his eyes remain on hers. "I'm a lucky man to have known you..." He takes a breath as if to say something else, but instead it is his last. His body goes limp, and his hands fall away from hers.

She looks at him in disbelief. "Nelaros? Oh please, no."

Soris's voice sounds behind her. "Come on cousin, we should get out of here while we still can...I-I'm so sorry."

She leans in to Nelaros and softly kisses his forehead. Then she stands and follows Soris through the door. She hopes to find the man who is responsible for destroying her life, and then destroy his.

Whoa, sorry for that. That's just the little idea in my head behind this picture. I know my writing sucks...that's why I draw. :B

Nelaros really is the hero in all of this. He's the one who convinces Soris and the rest of the alienage that the ladies need rescuing. The part that really bugs me though is that he never got a weapon to defend himself! --Ok maybe he did have one but it got knocked away in the fight...:shrug:

Anyhoo...if you're still reading...thanks for lookin'! :D

Ooh, I wrote something so similar for my Tabris elf! Except well after he gave her the ring, she tried it on while traveling with Duncan and found that it wouldn't fit her finger - it was made for someone dainty, and she took more after her adventurous mother. It's what helped her realize she was finally on the right path.

was browsing through and I saw this. I really love how you did the scene here, and as many I agree there should of been a scene like this.

Awesome rendition of what should have happened :heart: . What really transpired seemed...cold.

I find it disturbing that the groom get's killed if you play a female City elf, yet the male equivalent can save his betrothed easily. I had to admit, for a guy who only just met his soon-to-be-bride, he was very brave to choose going after the men who abducted their women.

Well-written and lovely picture with it. I could never sell the dress or ring either.
