"I wish there was an option to hug my horse, or pet him, or kiss him on the forehead. He has saved my character from dragons, giants, sabre cats, and bandits all while carrying her all across Skyrim without complaint or protest. The least Bethesda could do is let us express how much we appreciate our horses."

Oooooh

So I’ve had this headcanon for a while that Dormin basically pissed off the other gods in the area and that’s how They got sealed.

WHAT IF

It was sixteen gods in particular, and each put something of themselves into a Colossus? And the more peaceful Colossi sprang from gods who maybe didn’t hate Dormin that much (particularly Phalanx/Colossus Thirteen. Phalanx is like… some god who was on the edge of this pantheon’s borders and maybe just got dragged into things) and Malus came from Emon’s patron and hates Dormin most of all.

Yeah, yeah! Oh, I think I’ve solved the problem of the local pantheon and what the haps are there. Now I just need to figure out the foreign gods who later help Wander and Dormin out…

AAAAAH AND.

THOSE NAMES PEOPLE USE FOR THE COLOSSI AREN’T QUITE THEIR NAMES. THOSE ARE THE NAMES OF THE GODS INFUSING POWER INTO THEM.

I already headcanon the setting into having a lot of Name Magic and so that’s PERFECT AAAAH

Took the plunge.

This year’s NaNoWriMo: The Big Depressing Wander Story That Nonetheless Eventually Ends Happily. Or, Wander’s Legend for short (at least tentatively).

This may be a project big enough to breach 50k and keep going! :o The pre-ICO stuff is currently the clearest, since it provided the bedrock for most of the crossover RPs. After that it’s a little fuzzy. We’ll see, I guess!

All I really have planned for NaNo is vague leanings to writing up The Big Depressing Wander Fic (Which Nonetheless Eventually Ends Happily).

Bits of it have been RP’d before, but on a crossover basis. (The Team ICO games are very, very easy to cross into and around and through other franchises. Well, Dormin’s land is the intersection of magical points…) It might be nice to set down the in-universe version.

And to show off headcanon Dormin who is a good entity, dammit. Or, at least, a neutral entity who gets pretty attached to Their accidental sort-of demigod and winds up feels bad for him to the point They get character development.

The time has once again come to offer my kingdom for SotC fanstuff where Dormin’s a good entity.

I WILL SETTLE FOR NEUTRAL.

I FUCKING WROTE A NOVEL ABOUT THAT SHIT

IT ANGERS ME WHEN PEOPLE ASK WHY I SEE DORMIN IN A BETTER LIGHT [HA] THAN WHAT IS GIVEN IN THE GAME

HELLO FRIEND LET US SHOUT ANGRILY ABOUT DORMIN

DORMIN ARE AN AWESOME GOD OF LIGHT AND LIFE AND DEATH

It’s like that thing where Pluto/Hades was, like, one of the nicest gods in the entire pantheon but all that modern interpretations see is ‘oh, death god, must be evil!!’

DORMIN FREAKING KEPT THEIR PROMISE AND PROBABLY SAVED AGRO AND THE WAY THEY SAID THEY WERE ‘BORROWING’ WANDER’S BODY IMPLIED THEY WERE GONNA GIVE IT BACK AT SOME POINT

I MEAN IT’S NOT LIKE THEY WERE DEFENDING THEMSELF AGAINST A PRIEST TRYING TO KILL AND/OR RESEAL THEM OR ANYTHING AT THE TIME

Stupid Lord Emon ruining everything. I bet Dormin would’ve just extracted Their godstuff from Wander, revived Mono and Agro (and probably Wander I legit think he was undead for most of the game because human + godstuff = no in this setting), and let the trio go along their merry way in thanks for unsealing Them.
