I see Anders as skinny-ass as well under all those bulky robes, which makes for a lovely contrast with a (muscular) warrior Lady Hawke. Reversal of gender tropes and all that.
i’m aware that not all fandom sees anders like this, and don’t take it too seriously. it’s just my opinion after seeing most of the fanart ;) and i don’t think that super-hot-body-anders isn’t unf, because he is. OvO
i just don’t think that mages get to work out that much ;P
As for the buffness clearly seen with Champion ManMage Hawke…maybe he was a lumberjack back in Lothering. Or clearly Papa Hawke’s Ninja!Mage ways was passed down to him. Or even as a Mage, he still wants to one-up Carver, just because he can.
(I dunno, I’m grasping at straws here XD)
I always picture him being all skin and bones! Running the free clinic in Darktown can’t put much food on the table. Not to mention he’s also a Grey Warden. Poor thing is must be secretly hungry all the time! I can only imagine him trying to cover up his tummy growls with loud coughs and such. O A O
I suppose he’d fill in a bit better after he’s moved in with you and he’s had time to eat. At least to a healthy weight. But he’s never stricken me as one who would get all buffed up! I don’t think working out is something he’d like to do. He seems to spend most of his free time working on that manifesto of his.
Is it bad that I just convinced myself to play DA 2 again so I can romance Anders and make sure he’s eating okay? I’m beginning to worry myself now.
