"This is my... elf." Anders fumbled over his words as he waved at the broody tevinter, ducking his head at the Hero of Fereldan and struggling to put a name to what they were exactly.

“ ‘Your’ elf?” Fenris said, the bite in his words evident already, and Ander’s knew he’d made a terrible mistake.

“Not 'my’ elf persay, but an elf who happens to be with me, not belonging to me, I’m not…” Anders trailed off, looking to Hawke for help, who just shook her head sadly and continued to talk to the Hero, Anders slip all but forgotten.

By all but one at least.

Fenris didn’t look at him the entire journey back, walking on the other side of the party and barely speaking a word, none of which were aimed at Anders. Fenris disappeared away to his mansion the moment they entered the city, without so much as a backwards glance, Anders staring at his retreating back and wondering what he could do that would fix this.

NSFW Meme (Fenders obviously)

Who is louder?

Anders makes these noises.  They surprise Fenris at first, but when he thinks back to the first time they kissed—heated, in the moment, hands grabbing, fingers bruising—and the way Anders had moaned into his mouth like he was dying…well.  Fenris really shouldn’t be surprised.

Who is more experimental?

Anders likes to try things.  He likes to touch and lick and bite and beg, likes to pull Fenris on top of him and demand.  It takes Fenris longer to become comfortable, longer to know what he wants and that he can ask for it.  He’s not used to asking and getting—neither of them are, really—but Anders is more ready, more willing to try for it.

Who takes more risks? 

Anders, heart on his sleeve and pursuing life, liberty, and love, takes more risks.

Really, when he closed the distance between the two of them in that alley, when lips met instead of fists, wasn’t that the biggest risk of all?

Do they fuck or make love?

At first it’s fucking, angry and impulsive, fingers and mouths bruising, bodies shoved up against walls and hard places.  They fuck like they fight, sharp words and tongues, emotions explosive.

Gradually, things change.  They begin to stay, they begin to listen.  In the wee hours of the morning, when the sun is only just beginning to slip through the streets and back alleys of Kirkwall, that they have more in common than they thought.  That they’re experiences are both valid, and that neither negates the other’s.

Antagonism turns to friendship turns to…something else neither of them are really quick willing to name.

Lights on or off?

Things often happen so quickly they don’t even think of the lights, and so they remain on, their bodies bared to each other.

Who is more likely to be caught masturbating?

There have been nights when Fenris can’t sleep, his body aching, nightmares haunting him, that he gets up and walks, wanders Hightown and Lowtown.  Eventually, his feet lead him to Anders and his clinic.  He lets himself in on these nights.  Sometimes he finds Anders asleep, quiet and warm.  He blinks awake and scoots over, makes room for Fenris in his bed.  Or gets up and makes tea.  Welcomes Fenris.  Sometimes he finds him in the middle of a nightmare himself, limbs flailing. Fenris wakes him up then, voice and hands gentle.

And sometimes he finds Anders awake, feet and back flat on his bed, hand around his cock and hips straining.

“What me to help with that?” he asks, and Anders jerks, groans, looks at him with heat filled eyes.  Licks his lips and nods.

Who comes first?

Anders, almost always.  It’s more difficult for Fenris, and the pain his markings leave him in.  But Anders finds ways to touch him, places that feel amazing.  Much later, he plays with some of his healing skills to take the edge off, tries other things to drive Fenris crazy.  He’s determined to, at some point, make Fenris come hard and fast and firsti.

Who is better at oral and who prefers it?

Anders likes to use his mouth, likes to suck and bite and leave his own marks on the clear plains of skin at Fenris’ hips.  To wrap his fingers around the base of his cock and suck him down until those hips are driving up.  To feel Fenris’ fingers slip into his hair—loose for just this purpose—and hold on.

Sometimes it’s too much for Fenris, and he has to pull Anders off, push him over onto his back and suck his cock instead.  But it’s Anders who goes for it first, it’s Anders who originally dropped to his knees and started this all.

Who is more submissive?

They’ve both worked so hard to have any control over their lives that submission of any sort is difficult, and neither of them care for it.  In bed—or against walls, chairs, tables—they meet each other head on.

Who usually initiates things?

It’s a trade off.  Depends on the day, the week.  On whether they’ve been arguing recently.  On how often they see one another.

There was one time when it had been a while—long enough for them to begin to doubt what was happening—that neither of them wanted to initiate, the both of them waiting for the other to make the first move.

It had been Hawke, sighing into his pint, saying, “Maker, would the two of you just get a room again?” that tipped them back over.  After, limbs spread out on sweat-soaked sheets, they’d laughed about it and known that maybe things were different now, maybe this really was something.

Who is more sensitive?

Fenris, and this is both a good and bad thing.  Sometimes, it means Anders barely has to touch him and he’s driven wild.  Other times, his markings are too painful, make everything too much and he pulls away with a bitten off groan.  It was awkward the first time it happened, but they know each other now.  Really know each other.  This is where Anders’ experiments with healing help.

This is how they learn to be quiet with each other, and gentle.  Where they learn how to talk and listen and hear.

majestic-lizard-birb asked:

I like to just imagine Fenris carrying Anders around for various reasons.

At first I was imagining him carrying Anders like you would, say, a damsel who is swept off their feet, or a bride being carried over the threshold of their new home.  But now I’m picturing Anders picking fights with templars and Fenris just being like, “Nope,” and grabbing him around the waist and throwing him over his shoulder and walking away as Anders protests.

cautionzombies asked:

Fenders, where it's time to get a pet, but Fenris doesn't exactly want a cat.

[Sooooo this ended up being the exact opposite of what you asked for.  I mis-remembered.  I hope you’ll forgive me. <3]

Fenris stares down into the mewling box on the corner in Hightown. Thereare five kittens within, their eyes scrunched, their mouths wide as they cry.How Anders can stand the sound…He shakes himself, and is about to walk awaywhen he notices a sixth, stripped and smaller than the rest, it’s mouth—blessedly—closed. It’s watching him, eyes wide and golden, and something about it catches at his memory.

He turns to the girl minding the box. “Excuse me,” he says, “but is that…is that a tabby?”

The girl, no more than eight he’s sure, rolls her eyes at him. “Yes, serah. But he’s the runt. Sure you’re interested?”

He’s not, at all, and he goes to shake his head and step away when he remembers the last night he and Anders spent together, voices hushed in the dark, sharing parts of themselves they hadn’t before, stories about the past, both happy and painful. Fenris had forgotten he contained joy like that anymore. Anders had helped him find his way. Had given in return stories of Circles and templars and cats name Wiggums, Ser Pounce-a-Lot. Ridiculous names.

He’d mentioned once to Merrill that he liked tabbies.

“Yes,” he says. “I’ll take him.”

Fenris and Anders, both plagued by nightmares and insomnia, wandering the streets of Kirkwall in the middle of the night. Running into each other on a regular basis. At first, they barely acknowledge the other’s presence, a brief nod. But then a rueful half-smile begins to appear, as though to say, “Can you believe this shit?”

Their paths stop crossing, start meeting instead. They look for each other in the wee hours of the morning, before the sun rises. Falling in line, they don’t talk. They walk. They play cards. They share food.

Eventually, they share other things. Stories at first, nothing personal. And then more, slowly. It’s easier to talk when only the other is listening.

They find they have more in common than they ever thought, not just these midnight rambles.

A year down the line, maybe two, rueful smiles turn to grins, a nodded greeting to a bumped shoulder. Hands and fingers brush, bodies slipping too close, then not close enough when a current runs through them, shocking them both. They look at each other with wide eyes and really see.

They no longer spend their nights wandering the streets of Kirkwall.

stormdragon asked:

Fenris/Anders, 13?

“Have you ever wanted to hate someone?”


“Have you ever wanted to hate someone?”

Anders sighs, opens his eyes to stare up at the canopy above the bed Fenris has claimed for his own, now that he occasionally needs room for more than one body. “Yes,” he says, “often and vehemently. Usually I go straight from wanting to hate them to full-on hatred.”

Fenris hums beside him, and Anders can feel the heat coming off of him. They don’t touch much, after. Fenris’ skin is sensitive, and neither of them are used to physical company, not like this. Though Anders hopes, one day…

“Yes,” Fenris says. “Me, too.”

He’s silent for a moment, and Anders wonders if he’s fallen asleep finally. If he has, Anders could roll over, turn toward him. Study his profile in the ebbing firelight. He enjoys looking at Fenris. Sometimes it’s easier if he’s asleep.

But then Fenris says, “But have you ever wanted to hate someone and…found that you couldn’t?”

Anders’ breath catches, his heart doing something complicated in his chest. Beside him, he hears Fenris shift to look at him.

“I—” He turns to look at Fenris, at his familiar face, his slightly mussed hair. His eyes, piercing, but softening around the edges. Anders swallows. “Yes, I have.”

The corner of Fenris’ mouth twitches and he nods. “Yes,” he says, “me, too.”

When he rolls to his side and reaches for Anders, Anders goes easily.

ypsilon42 asked:

30 + fenders, please?

[learning what the other person likes sexually.]

They learn each other slowly at first; Fenris discovering Anders’ hands grab that much harder at him when he bites at his neck, Anders finding that Fenris arches into him—neck bared—if he mouths at the line of his hip. Touch is something they both crave, though neither of them will ask for it. Not to begin with anyway.

It’s months before they have sex in a bed, and when they do, Anders discovers that Fenris is vocal, much more vocal than he’d originally thought. He’s vocal and receptive, and he tugs at Anders’ hands when they wander away from where he wants them and swears when Anders refuses. Threatens to harm him when Anders smirks.

Anders knows now, though, that those threats mean nothing, that they hold no heat. He also knows that while Fenris likes it rough—teeth and nails and hard walls against their backs—he melts when Anders kisses him slow, comes harder when Anders makes him wait for it. In the confines of Fenris’ bed, he learns the contours of Fenris’ hips, the dips of his spine. The slight curve of his cock to the left. He learns that for as pushy as Fenris is, as much as he likes to be in control, his eyes go darker when Anders kneels over him, reaching behind with slick fingers to work himself open. He watches Anders and his pleasure intently, fingers tight on Anders’ hips.

In this moment, Anders learns that for as often as Fenris will bend him over and fuck him—hands bruising, thrusts frantic—it is the eye contact he craves, the reassurance that, yes, Anders is here with him.

anonymous asked:

fenders kiss?

I hope you like this, anon!


They don’t kiss a lot at first, and when they do it’s hard, biting and bruising. Fingers tear at buckles and ties, frantic for skin, unthinking. They push and pull, leave purpled prints on skin, until they both tumble over the edge.

Clean up is taken care of quickly, efficiently. A solitary activity. They leave with a look and a nod and the memory of skin on skin, hot breath shared between.

It isn’t until later—much later, years later—that Fenris kneels before Anders after a fight, his hands shaking as Anders’ heals himself. He kneels, reaching out. Presses fingers to Anders’ jaw, brushing them over stubble, brushing back past his ear into his hair. Anders looks at him with wide eyes, lips parted. Breath stops between them, and it’s too much for Fenris, the pink of Anders’ mouth and gold of his hair, the gleam in his eye and blood on his cheek. He makes the choice, leans in, fits their mouths together careful. Feels relief ring through them both.

anonymous asked:

I woke up so i'm giving you more: its 4 in the morning, theres some guy shoveling the snow

Scratching his hip, Fenris pads into his kitchen, over to the stove. The read out above the burners glows 3:59 as he grabs the kettle. He’s been unable to sleep and had decided to exploit his insomnia by working on his book.

But first, tea.

He carries the kettle over to the sink and is beginning to fill it when he hears a noise outside.

Lifting up on his toes, Fenris scowls and peers out the window above the sink. Scowls harder when he sees a bundled figure in his front yard shoveling snow from his walkway. The sidewalk beyond him is cleared, as is the walkway to the neighboring house on the left. Having only moved in within the last month, Fenris still hasn’t met that neighbor. Hawke calls Fenris a hermit. Fenris argues he just doesn’t like people.

Aveline calls them both idiots.

Fenris sighs and puts the now full kettle on the stove, starts it boiling. Wraps his robe tighter around him. There’s no time like early morning to introduce himself, right?

The air bites at his bare ankles when he steps onto the porch and he shivers, crosses his arms. “Excuse me,” he calls to the figure in his yard. “Excuse me, hi. Wouldn’t it be better to wait until it stops snowing?”

The figure continues shoveling and then looks up, the streetlights—and the light on Fenris’ porch—revealing a man’s face. He’s attractive, jaw stubbled and strong, eyes friendly.

“Maybe,” he says. “But then it would be that much harder.”

Fenris tilts his head. “Do you often shovel stranger’s yards in the middle of the night?”

“You’re not a stranger,” the man answers. He sounds a little breathless, breath a white cloud in the air. “You’re my neighbor. And it’s not the middle of the night, it’s early morning.”

Fenris rolls his eyes, can’t help it. “As much as I appreciate it, you really don’t have to…?”

“Anders. And I know. I don’t mind. I used to do it for the couple who lived here. Habit and all that.” He stops, close to Fenris on the front steps. There’s snow caught in the copper gold hair that peeks out from under his knit hat. His cheeks are flushed and his eyes are dark and Fenris feels something stir within him.

“I mean,” Anders continues. “Unless you mind? I can stop. I mean, after tonight. I won’t leave it half done.”

Fenris shakes his head. “I don’t mind,” he says. “But let me…I don’t know. I was just making a pot of tea? If you wanted to come in and, uh, warm up.”

Anders smiles, wide and bright. “Do you often invite strangers in for tea in the middle of the night?”

“You’re not a stranger,” Fenris says, smirking. “You’re Anders. And I’m Fenris. And when you’re done with that, I’ll make sure you’re warmed up—I mean. Tea. I’ll make sure you have tea.”

Anders smirks back at him, and Fenris rolls his eyes. Goes back inside. Figures writing can wait until later.

“I wasconcerned.  I thought you might need a friend—” 

“Is that what we are?” Fenris asks. 

“I’d hoped at the very least for acquaintance.” 

Fenris doesn’t move as Anders closes the distance between them.  He stops about a food away, reaches out to touch Fenris’ shoulder when it seems he’s become lost in thought. The touch ignites something in Fenris and he glows bright, blue.  Turns on Anders with both hands, forcing him backward until he hits a wall. The movement knocks his breath away. 

“And what if I don’t want to be friends?” Fenris growls, hands fisted in Anders’ robes.  His eyes are dark and wild and Anders’ heart is racing, his body thrumming.  He’s opening is mouth to respond when Fenris fits his own over it.

onyxmoonstone asked:

Anders recites children's stories and fairy tales when Fenris has nightmares.

Oh my gooooooooood, my heart.

He would.  He totally would.  I can see Fenris trying to play the nightmares off.  Brushing off Anders’ attempts to comfort at first—maybe this whole actually spending the night together thing is new—and so Anders casually begins, “Have you ever heard the story of…” and before Fenris knows it, they’re curled together, the fire burning low, Anders’ voice calming even as it rises and falls with the story.  Fenris’ eyes begin to droop and then…nothing…

(I really want to play with this idea.  Would that be okay?)

onyxmoonstone asked:

Anders is under explicit orders to never tell anyone about the purring sound Fenris makes when Anders scratches under his chin or behind his ears.

omg this kills me.  Just the idea of Fenris finally being okay—and open enough—for this kind of physical affection?  Oh, my heart.

I can also see the first time it happens.  The way Anders would pause, surprised, and the way Fenris would turn to him and just be like, “Not a word.”  Anders nodding, biting back a laugh, and going back to massaging and scritching his scalp.

onyxmoonstone asked:

Fenris sings Tevinter lullabies when Anders has nightmares.

I want to wrap them both up so tightly and keep them safe.  ;_;

This one in combination with your headcanon about Anders telling Fenris stories and fairy tales…I’m having a moment here.  I imagine they learn a lot about each other during the nightmare nights.  Anders wanting to know where Fenris learned the lullabies.  Fenris wanting to know about the stories.  Fenris discovering which song Anders likes best.  Anders recognizing which stor Fenris responds to the most.  Slowly, piece by piece, they’d learn each other in ways no one else has bothered to learn them, begin to build something new.

aaaaaugh feels

kindofdistracting asked:

Fenris takes up woodcarving as hobby an slowly the clinic fills up with little figurines in all shapes. Anders's favourite is a small cat, the first one Fenris made and gave him. It's always in his pocket and running his fingers over it calms him. Since it's wood, it gets worn down eventually. Fenris replaces it with one he cut out of a gemstone. (am i late to the party?)

(Not late!)

Aaaaaaah, I love this.  I love the idea of Fenris working with his hands, and that the evidence of that would start to fill up the nooks and crannies of the clinic.  And that they’d be together long enough—even just be friends long enough—for a gift to be worn down and replaced with love.

Can I just cry over them a little?  I think I need to cry over them a little.  <3

(I’m also now trying to picture Fenris giving that first one to Anders.  How awkward they both would have been.  Anders tipping over into bemused and then surprised and touched, pleased…)
