it is very, very cold tonight, and once they finish up on the docks, hawke tugs anders past darktown with a soft smile, waiting for the confusion to brighten into understanding on his face.
he pulls her into a kiss just outside her door, lips cold but mouths warm, and she melts against him for just a moment, her fingers brushing the back of his neck. when she breaks away she bites his lower lip gently and smiles at him, only fumbling with the door a little bit.
they tumble inside and hawke beelines to the fireplace in the study, overstuffed chairs warm and welcoming. she kisses him again and pushes him down into one of the chairs, half-falling on top of him. his arms come up around her and she snuggles into him, hips rocking slow and lazy against his, not expecting anything, just wanting to draw simple pleasure from each other’s bodies. simple warmth.
she pulls his hair loose, and tangles her hands in it, fingers still icy against his scalp, and he shivers, laughing into her mouth. his hands rest on her hips as her kisses trail lower, breath hot on his neck, and she presses her lips to his jawline, nuzzling against his shoulder.
the warmth from the fire makes them both realize they are suddenly sleepy.
hawke yawns and curls tighter into anders’s lap. he holds her, kisses her temple, smooths hair out of her face, and listens as her breathing evens out.
<3333333 I’m just doing what little I can to brighten your day, Brandy ^^ <33
Gosh, just look at her. Honestly if there’s a more accurate representation of Meryl’s character then I don’t know what it is. A cheeky, lively wink, biting her lip in excitement for whatever awesome stuff is about to go down.
Thank you for being such a lovely and sweet person and making my day as well!
T: Good thing Matt wasn’t around when she was in college.
B: Oh man, I wonder what she used to get up to. You know also, as dumb as the Boss plays it’s still a bit impressive that she managed to get into college at all, even if she did balls it up/drop out. But oh man, if Matt were around and the same age or close…
T: Boss would be the worst lab partner ever. Matt lost his temper, his GPA and his virginity in one week. Young Boss thinks it’s hilarious of course and Matt tries hard to stay away from her after that, for the sake of his scholarship if nothing else.
