Imagine Solas sleeping so soundly next to his lover that when Lavellan wakes up, they cannot feel their arm, and with a fond smile they look over at Solas, who has rolled over onto Lavellan’s outstretched arm as he snoozes away. It’s numb, and Lavellan carefully pulls the arm out from under him so feeling returns in electrifying tingles. They give Solas one more look before returning to their own slumber, snuggling up to him. 

Years later, Lavellan wakes up groggily, and immediately they think ‘I can’t feel my arm’, and that fond smile returns. Lavellan turns to see Solas once more, only he’s not there, and feeling does not return.
