You guys, I just had a really good idea:
The final boss of Dark Souls 3 should have been SOLAIRE.
You go in expecting Gwyn or some shit, you steel yourself for the final battle, and you walk through the fog gate… and there he is, just sitting by the fire.
You walk up to him, maybe have a friendly chat. Maybe he thinks you look familiar. Maybe you can tell him you’ve met before, in a past life/cycle. Like how you can tell the darkmoon lady that you’re a bird. It can just be to fuck around, or it can be to cement your own headcanon that your character is the same as from the first game. Maybe share some Siegbrau if you have any left. One last toast, especially to those who couldn't make it that far.
And THEN the fight begins.
Praise the fuckin’ sun.
I am retroactively pissed they didn’t go with that. Hindsight is 20/20 I guess. I need to go draw that shit…
