* Music/BillieHoliday had a tragic life where she was the victim of rape at age 11, teenage prostitution, abusive partners and severe alcohol, morfine and heroin addiction. All it culminated in her MagnumOpus ''Music/LadyInSatin'', where she sings about break-ups, unrequited love and all hardships of relationships in her drug ravaged voice. Only a year after recording this album she would die from liver cirrosis.

If you've got more than one love interest, you've got a [[GreenEyedMonster headache-inducing]] LoveTriangle or even LoveDodecahedron on your hands. Tread these waters ''very'' carefully, lest you be on the receiving end of a {{Yandere}}'s poisonous affections or a {{Tsundere}}'s MegatonPunch. Pick one lover and you can look forward to either a ThunderingHerd of [[ClingyJealousGirl jilted rivals]] or the [[ObliviousToLove silent shattering]] of [[AllLoveIsUnrequited many other hearts]]. All in the name of comedy, you say? Comedy never became as twisted as it does when dealing with lovers [[LoveMakesYouCrazy crazy]] enough to beat down your door, commit trespassing, [[TheGlomp glomp]] you, and refuse to let go. And [[ColdTurkeysAreEverywhere remembering the love interest anywhere you go]] makes it worse.

** In [[VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins Origins]], you have [[LadyOfBlackMagic Morrigan]] who turns out to [[spoiler:have had a [[WasItAllALie secret agenda the whole game]] and leaves -- while possibly pregnant with your child -- despite having genuinely fallen in love with you]]. Alistair will also break up with you if he [[spoiler:becomes King and you're not a human noble, unless you become his mistress (at the cost of [[CorruptTheCutie hardening]] him)]]. He will also [[spoiler:[[AlwaysSaveTheGirl sacrifice himself to save you]] if you refused to do Morrigan's ritual]]. Leliana and the Warden will separate somewhere between the end of Origins and Inquisition. On top of all this, the Warden themselves [[spoiler:[[HeroicSacrifice can die]]]] at the end of game depending on your choices.
