hawke/anders ♖ or ♜? i'm really into these two de-stressing together
Here you go nonny! I combined this with a recent Garrett Hawke Biceps Appreciation post, to produce this little Red Hawke/Anders thingie.

and splinters flew, and Hawke felt a pang of guilt for the damage; he hadn’t
meant to wreck Anders’ home, but he was too furious to see straight.
bigoted Marcher arseholes. Hawke had returned home after a long night of
patrolling – patrolling their streets, keeping their people safe from their stupid bloody gangs – to find
