chess,

I’m never gonna wait that extra twenty minutes to text you back, and I’m never gonna play hard to get when I know your life has been hard enough already.

When we all know everyone’s life has been hard enough already it’s hard to watch the game we make of love, like everyone’s playing checkers with their scars, saying checkmate whenever they get out without a broken heart.

Just to be clear, I don’t want to get out without a broken heart.
I intend to leave this life so shattered
there’s gonna have to be a thousand separate heavens for all of my flying parts.

Another Solas x Lavellan commission, because I’m a masochist .__.
This piece is based on the party banter between Solas and Bull where they played chess (video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ky19-1fuL2U ) 

I’ve always marveled at how aptly Solas’s gambit resembled his storyline, and wondered whether the Inquisitor is the queen he sacrifices, or the pawn that he carefully positions to enable his victory - and perhaps to reach the end of the board and become queen herself.
