For DWC: Human Emma explaining gravitation to Solas. Bonus if she provides examples.

For @bearlytolerable and @dadrunkwriting sorry if this little drabble was less sciencey than you were hoping for, but character wise I don’t think Emma would know a lot of the technical and in depth explanations, not about that at least.  So I went with a way she could show him that I figured most people in our world would be aware of ;).  

Emma crossed her arms over her chest as she leaned back on the corner of his desk.  At least he was sitting so she didn’t have to stare up at him as she spoke.  She always managed to hold her ground well enough but that didn’t mean it was particularly easy when he was towering over her.

“Solas, why would I lie about this?  I’m telling you if you drop a ball of steel and a ball of wood that are the same size they will both land at the same time.”

He gave that huff of indignation he did so well, “That is preposterous.  You are… what is the term you use?  Pulling my leg.”

“It’s gravity.”  

“You can make up as many words as you like—”

“Ugh, I am not making up words.  If I were to jump down from where Dorian is—”

“Why would you—”

“I wouldn’t just… I’m giving you an example.  So, shut it.”  She waited to see if he would resist but he simply leaned back in his chair, steepling his hands before giving her a nod.  “If I jumped from where Dorian is I would fall and land here right?  I would not simply float, correct?”

She paused and when he didn’t speak she raised a brow.  He copied her expression before saying, “Oh I apologize, I thought I was to shut it.”

“You. are. Impossible.”  She straightened and started out of the rotunda.  “I’m going to talk to Ivy before this turns into a thing.”

There was no more talk of it until several days later, at which point she had completely forgotten the conversation.  Emma was out working in the herb garden when a shadow fell over her.  She looked up, covering her eyes with her hand, to find the familiar lank of Solas looking proud of himself.

“What’s with the—”

“I have the balls.”

She paused, tilted her head, “I’m sorry, you have the what now?”

“Your balls so that you may show me this theory of yours.”

“My… what?”

The smile fell and his brows furrowed, “You have forgotten already?  One wood and one steel.  This thing you were talking about… gravity, was it?”

“Ooohhhh,”  Understanding dawned on her and she stood, wiping the dirt on her leggings, “You actually had them made?”


She couldn’t help when the corners of her mouth twitched up, “I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised.  Come, let’s find somewhere to drop them where we won’t hit someone in the head.”

They found themselves up on Skyhold’s fortress walls in a corner without any traffic.  They would go unobserved and not risk hitting anyone in the process.  Solas glanced down as he felt the weight of the balls in his hands.

“You want to drop them or shall I?  Either way it is key they are dropped at the same time.”

His eyes came up to meet hers and he smirked,  “What shall we wager?”

She laughed and shifted putting a hand on her hip, “Oh I don’t think you want to do that on this one.”

“I believe I do.”  He played at thinking on it for a moment before he said, “Loser will be bound and winner may do what they wish to them tonight.”

She raised a brow, “You want to tie me up?  Or do you want to be tied up?  Either way, this seems like it is a wager where we both win no matter.”

He continued to smirk, but his attention shifted to look down at the ground below, “It is agreed then?”

“I agree.  Are you dropping them then?”

“Why?  Would you rather my balls be in your hands?”

At least she managed to keep the giggle down that threatened to bubble out, “This is science and should be taken seriously, now get to it.”

“Eager to lose are you?”

“No.  Eager to win actually.  Then I can have my way with your balls as much as I like.”

A chuckle as he held both hands out over the edge, “Impatient, woman.  On the count of three then?”

“Very well, one. Two. Three.”

He opened both hands at the same time and they both watched as the two balls fell to the earth.  At the same speed.  Directly next to each other.  Until they both fell into the dirt giving out little puffs into the air on impact.  At the same time, as she knew they would.

“Well,” a pause, “that was… unexpected.”

He was looking down at the ground still and she reached out.  Her fingers brushing along his jaw and forcing him to look at her, “Tell me Solas.  Should I use leather bindings or silk?”

whenever i hear songs about changing urself for ur partner i get really fascinated with the whole concept bc obviously who we’re acquainted w/ changes us as a person it’s useless to pretend we aren’t influenced by our interactions with others but i’d say it’s mostly unconscious like u don’t make the conscious decision to become more of this or less of that but when in these songs they’re like “i would change for you/i would let you change me” and to what extent and which type of change are we talking about like is it a positive change where u learn to open up more etc or is it like “i would dye my hair for u cuz i know u like blondes and i’ll pretend i love football even tho i don’t” à la cool girl monologue from gone girl? i never know how to feel about those lines lol anyways these songs still go off

My doctor doesn’t believe in PD’s, and now I’m back on anti-depressants because I my as well do something while being here at the doctors haha okay. lmfao I could barely communicate how disfunctional I’ve been highly due to avpd, cause I was having a breakdown during, and the words coming from my mouth weren’t making any sense; I was sluring words and shuttering, and I didn’t even finish half my sentences??? it was so embarrassing. Ppffff no wonder he think’s PD are bullshit, it’s probably just the depression talking.

I had to take a depressant test before I left, and half of it was basically “have you been feeling X and X” I can’t even idenity or recall half the emotions I feel man, agh. I just feel numb, and maybe a little bit of an idiot.

Anyway the appointment was pointless, he couldn’t help me for the main reason I went. I wanted period pills or some shit, he couldn’t help because of my trans status, and the other was about PD’s, he basically said it’s pointless cause everyone experiances bits and pieces of PD’s syptoms….. I know that danny, but I experiance on the regular basically all of them in cluster C :/

Gotta go to the community clinic now.

You know you cast / a long shadow / on the ground

i’d appreciate it if people could stop calling pyrrha friendzoned bc that boy was 100% fucking in love with her kthxbye


“To put it simply, I’m selective about who I work with…”

Boys are so good. Like have you ever known a sweet boy or a tough boy or a boy who’s willing to hold you when you’re sad?
I don’t care if you’re straight, gay, trans, whatever, if you identify as a boy and you’ve ever been kind and compassionate or held a crying friend or helped someone who needed it in any way, I love you.
You are a good person.
