Essays in Existentialism: Punches III

Maybe you can do another Punches chapter? It would be so intresting to see Clarke meeting Anya, Clarke seeing Lexa fighting and strugling to accept that Lexa willingly fights and gets hurt. Thank you so much, you are my favourite fics writer :)

The city was frozen, though the thaw at its heart began to change it. Buildings dripped and streets cleared of ice, for a day or two, and the next wayward storm would blow its way through, punishing it for believing that it had a chance at all to reach the sacred gates of summer. But still, the city did its best to usher in the changing of seasons. The snow didn’t pile high anymore, but came in wisps and dustings, and the ice didn’t pepper the roads or sidewalks, but relegated itself to puddles and gutters. The city tried, so hard, to escape the perpetual winter, that it did not even notice or care at all, about what would happen on the other side of the world.

Since you have experience with martial arts, I’d love to read a work that included fight scenes, if that helps?


My favourite thing to do in Modern AUs is have a scene where Carver and Fenris are sparring (boxing) with each other… I just have this headcanon that both of them would be boxers or interested in boxing, and they would practise together, and a distracted Carver fails to block an oncoming punch that Fenris gets in, and Fenris chides him for his lack of focus LOL  

(Of course, one of these fics is a Carver/Merrill fic I haven’t published yet – where Carver’s a personal trainer – and the other is a Modern!AU  M!Hawke/Fenris fic where… wait, that one might also not have been published yet, but it’s a retelling of one that *has* been published on AO3, except that you don’t really get to see much sparring in the original, only semi-naked glistening afterwards LOL) 

I once remember I read a fanfic (I think it was a DA2 fanfic, but I don’t remember) where the author used the wrong type of punch and it really bothered me – I think they wrote a character using an uppercut to punch someone in the eye (when it should have been a jab). 

The worst of it is, I don’t even remember the actual fanfic (or its author) that this happened in, I only remember that I raged about them using the wrong type of punch LMAO
