Shades of Purple - Inquisition Cullen // requested by valrider

‎*Mom hands me phone to answer*

Me: Hello?

Telemarketer: Hello, is your mother home?

Me: I have no mother.

Her: Well can I speak to your father?

Me: Yeah, which one?

Her: Which one is home?

Me: Well they're both home..but I don't think you want to talk to Carlos. He just went through a breakup with his boyfriend, Antonio.

Her: Oh, so your fathers' names are Carlos and Antonio?

Me: No, no! My fathers' names are Carlos and Mark.

Her: So who's Antonio?

Me: I just told you, Carlos's ex.

Her: So Carlos was cheating?

Me: Yes, but that's only because Mark was cheating with Edith, our neighbor.

Her: So Carlos cheated only because Mark cheated?

Me: No, he THOUGHT Mark was cheating.

Her: So Mark wasn't cheating?

Me: I never said that.

Her: Yes, yes you did!

Me: No I didn't.

Her: Y-yes! You did!

Me: Did what?

Her: Y-you- Never mind have a nice day, goodbye.

I’m sorry but I utterly DETEST this disease-ridden whore. Sob story of her past notwithstanding, she CHOSE to live the life she lives now—as a garden-variety slut.  And she can’t fight for sh*t either, but she’s good at running off when you need her.  As Shale would say:  “Hag.” 
I know, I know… I’m in the minority here, but she’s GROSS, regardless of how pretty she is. Her few funny lines aren’t enough to make her tolerable.  I either leave her out of my game altogether or, if I feel I MUST deal with her, it’s only to turn her over to the Arishok. And she escapes them?  Suuuure.
(Go easy on me, haters. It’s my first time slamming an incomprehensibly popular character on Tumblr.  Hey, I haven’t even mentioned Anora… lol)

I don’t have a problem with you not liking or hating a character or Isabela. You don’t have to like every character. BioWare characters are written to elicit a reaction from us - ideally love or hate, that’s what the devs want, that’s what they aim for. The characters that get extreme reactions out of us are the memorable ones. Years later people still argue about whether Anders is a murdering crazy terrorist or a martyr revolutionary.
I don’t have a problem with you pointing out a character’s flaws or pointing out Isabela’s flaws. She is flawed. For sure. She stole the book. She was transporting slaves. She has a selfish streak, has engaged in piracy and isn’t above squeezing coin out of people. But all the companions are flawed in some way. So are you incidentally. Their flaws are what make them realistic. Perfection is boring. They also have good traits. Isabela looks out for Merrill. Isabela can handle herself. Isabela is a riot, knows how to have fun. Isabela is confident, comfortable in her own skin, witty and clever.
I don’t have a problem with you disliking Isabela from a gameplay perspective. That’s functional. Being annoyed that Zevran can’t pick locks because the points get locked in doesn’t equate to character hate. Gameplay/story segregation should be considered here though - in the lore Isabela is a very skilled fighter, a duelist, a swashbuckler. She is a pirate captain after all. The Queen of the Eastern Seas. She can’t be blamed for poor DAII gameplay.
That aside:
1) You’re the hater lmao
2) ->
I do have a problem with you shoving the atrocities in Isabela’s past under the rug as if they were nothing. She never knew who her father was, grew up without him. Her mother was not loving or caring, something which she comments on during the game. She was sold into a loveless marriage where she was treated as a plaything when she was just a girl, for refusing to convert to a religion, by her own mother, for a handful of gold and a fucking goat (depending on the version of the story). Those things stay with people. They shape people and have lasting impacts on them. Calling it a “sob story” is reductionist. Are the past traumas of non-fictional people sob-stories too?
I do have a problem with you slut-shaming, calling her a whore and ragging on her for being promiscuous. Is that what you think of non-fictional promiscuous women? Do you think the same thing about non-fictional promiscuous men? Would you call a fictional male character who is promiscuous a disease-ridden whore and a garden-variety slut? What’s so wrong about Isabela - or any woman or any person, for that matter - sleeping with who they like, when they like? Why does it matter to you? Why does someone’s sexuality make them less worthy of respect?
