dragon age: inquisition fic where the herald disappears from haven and cassandra is furious because she thinks they’ve done a runner the moment they had some freedom like ‘nope, i am fucken outta here see ya.’
…but it turns out they’re just unconscious in the chantry undercroft because they knocked themselves out on that one low hanging light while exploring.
The best part about Ford’s stupid tattoo is that it’s unlikely those tribesmen had an awareness of the work of Smash Mouth which means Ford had to describe the tattoo he wanted to them, he picked out that tattoo, he composed and designed it, he was like “yes. Yes I AM an all-star. I deserve this.”
I had the honor of getting to see a very talented bunch of local nerds put on this wonderful (unofficial) musical production of Portal 2! Words cannot describe how perfect this was- nor do my blurry phone snapshots do it justice. If you live in Vancouver, and love geeky things, The Geekenders put on tons of great local shows. If you missed it, this sold out three night production will be returning to the Rio Theatre in March!
so like, what if, right, what if hawke has never seen varric in anything like the gun show armourat all. like, it’s not like she’s never seen his arms before, of course she has, but she arrives at skyhold and of course he’s just dicking around the keep in his dwarf about the house gear which she’s seen like a squillion times, but then idk he has to go out for something something the inquisitor said so ANYWAY
and like, he still has bianca ofc, but he’s with a reputable organisation now, and he’s been given proper gear, upgraded, dwarf suitable, varric-specific, so she’s just like expecting chest hair and the works (and it’s not like she isn’t secretly suspicious the chest hair is ACTUALLY FULLY ARMOURED because how no one’s tried to stab him in it, she’s got no idea)
except he comes out and he’s wearing that armour and y'know, he’s been helping out with the inquisition in not just a killing things kind of way so he’s built a bit more muscularly than she’s used to
so hawke is completely struck dumb, scared to open her mouth because she’d just drool everywhere and okay, she’s always been into him but never mentioned it because reasons and stuff and then there’s that whole mysterious bianca “i’m already taken” thing, y'know, it’s not like he ever made himself seem remotely available after all??
except now she just wants to touch him, feel his muscles flex, his shoulders, maker’s breath, his damn shoulders, wants him to pick her up and fuck her against the wall and–
of course varric is varric so he notices she’s gone weirdly silent when usually he has to bribe her to shut up and it worries him because it’s out of character for her, and so he’s like “hawke, are you okay? is there something you want to tell me?”
and it’s on the tip of her tongue to blurt it out, how much she fucking wants him except she says “no,” and “it’s okay,” and “maybe i’m just tired” and he smiles and pats her hand and says something about her long trip to skyhold and to go and rest and he’ll see her when he gets back, okay?
“I’ve always meant to ask, Varric, when we met in the Merchant Guild, you seemed to be waiting for me.” “That’s a statement, Hawke. What’s your question?” “Were you waiting for me?” “Actually, I meant to catch you before you saw Bartrand.” “But you knew I’d be there.” “Maybe I wasn’t obvious about this already, but finding out things I’m not supposed to know is pretty much what I do.”
