I have never been through a Landsmeet where the Warden did not interrogate both sides before unilaterally choosing the monarch he or she desired. And I finally realized why:
I’ve never gone through a Landsmeet with a female Warden who was not in love with Alistair.
I’ve never gone through a Landsmeet with a Male Warden who has allowed Alistair to be either hardened or NOT betrothed to Anora.
Therefore… I have never seen the fabled scenario where Eamon says Al is King, Al agrees, and that’s that. That’s actually what I want to have happen with Lady Aeducan’ Lieutenant… but I’m going to have break up with him, aren’t I? Hmm.
It also changes the way I was planning to handle Anora… I will have to decide what I think is most important to this story, which is first and foremost about him coming of age and growing capable and independent.
I got that scenario once, with Kasia Brosca. She fought the duel herself, then asked Alistair to execute Loghain, and after he did the deed, Eamon proclaimed Alistair king and Alistair agreed with no input from Kasia. I didn’t even know that scenario was possible, so I was pretty surprised. Also, the romance was very much active at the time.
