bright vans

i’m in my prime,
not withering and old.
but i refuse to play
your wicked games any longer.

i know this tether is unbreakable,
but you make me feel like i’m interchangeable.
you drew a target on my heart,
when did this become fatal attraction?

i don’t have the strength,
the energy,
nor the patience
to be held hostage by your love.

so baby please don’t despair
when i say that
i’ve found the courage to
let you go.

you were never meant to be tied down in the first place.

—  believing i could love you was my mistake, c.j.n.

A Modern AU where Dorian is forced (asked to) pick up his mentor Alexius’ 6 year old kid, Felix, from school. He is able to mentally prepare himself for the possibility that Felix might dirty up his whole car with fingerpaint-stained hands and leaking juiceboxes. One thing he is absolutely not prepared for, however, is meeting The Iron Bull: a single dad with 6 very rowdy, very different-looking children.

A giant qunari with a bright pink mom van lifting 6 kids at the same time, holding on to his wide horns as he puts on their seatbelts. Now Dorian has seen it all.
