We love getting suggestions about comic ideas, some are really inspiring, and sometimes... uh, they don't really come out the way the suggester (in this case, CityElfRanger) thought, I suppose. But that doesn't make them any less inspiring. Look at all the beloved characters we were given an excuse to draw *.*
But really. When it comes to being bitter about not being able to romance Bioware characters? Trust me. I'm like 62% of the total collective fandom bitterness.

And a thank you to Lynneiah, who dubbed Awkward moments Hawkward the first time we did one. Clearly the superior title choice.

In other news! Our comics have been turning up on tumblr a lot - you guys have been great and linking and giving credit and everything. The thing is, both of us have tumblr accounts, and we wish to bask in the glory of your love/confusion/wtfs so we made a joint account for Champions and Heroes. You can find it here: http://championsandheroes.tumblr.com/
We'll be filling it up with the comics as soon as possible. The first post also links to our personal tumblr accounts, if that is of interest.

Sheesh... you girls really got it rough in this matter, huh?

Then again, your interests seem to be a bit... varied, no?

Well... that's why god invented fan fiction.

Edit: And (in at least 2 cases) why he invented modding (kind of similar in some cases I suppose).

I can relate to that to an extend. For me hottest guy in Kirkwall happen to my brother... Well at least on looks. Tho his character wants you to spank him... which might prove fun for some guys out there. ^_^

By the way, Which game is that Chance character in?

Posted @ September 23rd, 2013, 3:25 am

@Knightly: The Imperial agent plot of SWTOR

Posted @ September 23rd, 2013, 3:28 am

@Norgrath: Thanks. I guessed he is related to SWTOR, only Bioware game I don't play.

oh man well i was able to romance anders as a guy so i was like "YYYYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSS" anyway two things, one your comic banner isn't showing for me and two, there a way you can do a comic on the scene where the archdemon shows up in the warden's dream and alistars and scares them shitless? well i remember a choice being scared and alister was for sure

Three names

Carver, Sten and Justice :.(

Posted @ September 23rd, 2013, 7:12 am

@Deonis: Not my fault Bioware has so many great characters. I count... 22 of these as 'characters I would romance'. Some I have because, well, sometimes I play as male, but even so.

@Norgrath: Now if only fanfiction would feature my favorites TAT

@Draven22: Yep! I got an email today that we've exceeded this month's bandwith at photobucket. It will be back and working on the 1st :)
And we can certainly make a note of it :D

@byarru: Sten is there! If it's any comfort? We completely forgot about Justice though (though we both adore him) :( Carver... overshadowed once more XD

Posted @ September 23rd, 2013, 11:19 am

@byarru: Noooooo, Justice DDDD: we forgot about him! Justice is my baby! *will never forgive self :I*

@Amare: On the other hand, do we want to romance him? It would be a bit like romancing Legion (at least to me)

Posted @ September 23rd, 2013, 1:18 pm

I never got the fandom's love of Cullen. I guess I didn't like him because he was always against my male mage in DA:O and one of the endings had him kill a bunch of mages in the tower for no reason before screwing off to Kirkwall.

Then again, I'd do HK-47, so I guess I can't talk about loving murderers. (Which made fighting him and Revan in SWTOR really depressing as my lightside BH)

Posted @ September 23rd, 2013, 3:10 pm

@zenat: I've actually met a guy who honestly wished he could romance Legion. It was an interesting math lecture to say the least.
@Amare: If you wish, when you said "Justice is my baby" I was suddenly inspired to draw a baby Justice... but at the same time, part of me is stuggling to figure out how that would work... Or at least draw a comic where Justice is in a child like situation and the warden or Hawke has in the "parent" in the situation. *nerviously plays with fingers while looking away*

You guys are most welcome. If one of my puns out of ten can make this world a better place, the other nine were worth all the groaning they got. ^^

Posted @ September 23rd, 2013, 6:39 pm

@Lynneiah: You're totally baiting a "no pun in ten did," aren't you?

Posted @ September 23rd, 2013, 10:21 pm

@Norgrath: *whistles innocently*

Posted @ September 24th, 2013, 5:08 am

Oooh, do I see Edwin in there? Yep, I do. I've never been happier than when I installed the Edwin mod (and I've been romancing him every single playthrough since then). I wish there was a mod like that for Varric (and some 10+ other characters too). *long-suffering sigh*

Posted @ September 25th, 2013, 12:29 am

@warrion: There would be if it were as easy to mod DA as it is to mod Baldur's Gate.

Posted @ September 25th, 2013, 11:13 pm

@Norgrath: I know, and since personally I suck at modding, I only use it as something to whine about every time I discuss DA2 with people. Modders deserve worshipping.

Posted @ September 26th, 2013, 3:24 am

As I always say, 'why are the characters I love the most the ones I can't have?'

Posted @ September 27th, 2013, 5:06 am

Welp. I like it. Even if it isn't what I expected. *cough*At least yours are possible and can have fanfiction written about them*cough*

Posted @ September 28th, 2013, 5:15 am


Thank god I am not the only one that wanted to romance Lt. Rutau! I so badly wanted a flirt option for my Imperial Agent with him...

Posted @ October 3rd, 2013, 12:55 pm


Hey i`ve been reading the whole comic so i could ask if you could make a comic or comment about a list of the games you play. Already know the starwars one. Um Not sure about the others? Can you tell them to me? They look cool and i was thinking of playing it.

@zenat: Bethany is boring. Merrill is much more...interesting as is Isabella.
Panel 2:
Bianca has called dibs, no, no, she is the group mom, ehh awesome but no, yes as a male char, yes in the next game.
panel 3: Maybe in da4, idk, idk, maybe see more of him, who is chance?, Joker was awesome, definitely yes very yes also awesome story, sarcastic elf is second best elf would have beaten either of the others, he dies, ah yes reapers, who? that guy your blue woman drunk called, nice would be cool, available for male characters because me1-3 hates fshep, needs plenty of therapy and to stop blaming others for his decision, no just no, not sure who that is, the qun doesn't advocate such an action, team mom, compared to Anomen I can sea the relative appeal of him.

I can understand the feeling, if Varric were on the ship list he might have even been better than (rival)merrill in story, but we can only make choices based on the options we have.

Love the art, and how female hawke seems to be sitting on a pile of people she cannot be with, getting smaller and smaller and more annoyed. Never stop complaining, someone up top might actually listen.
