what if varric stops calling the companions nicknames
what if it reminds him too much of hawke’s group
Could you imagine, though? If he doesn’t give any of the inquisition any nicknames, and you run into a DA2 character, and he grins broadly and addresses them in their old nickname, and when they leave his face just fucking falls, and someone asks him in passive dialogue later why he doesn’t nickname anyone anymore, and he simply says, “Because that was family.”
And then towards the end of the game, he gives Inquisitor a nickname.
also wicked grace nights, what if he tries them at the beginning, but it doesn’t work out because it’s just not the same.
no isabela to cheat at cards, i mean sera’s good but isabela did it with flair, no anders and fenris sniping at each other while losing their coin, no sebastian being the reluctant attendee telling them all that the maker doesn’t approve but goddamn does he know how to hold his alcohol and have a good time, no merrill to ask for the explanations and the stories (varric loved explaining everything to her)
but most of all
no hawke to pull them all together
in the inquisition, they are very much apart of something greater and the organization is huge and try as he might, varric misses when it was just them versus the world (kirkwall)
- the Avengers get really bored one day and pick names out of a hat and trade costumes and spend the rest of the day pretending they got bodyswapped to mess with Tony
- it’s Steve’s idea

you know the part after The Pool Scene where scott and stiles and derek and erica are outside and discussing the kanima and blah blah
god that scene would have been like 1000x better if we had heard derek’s shoes squishing when he walked away
