o h my god okay um hope you dont mind if i post this publicly :0000
Lavellan is probably a dalish history/anthropology major
his car is a really dingy rav 4 or something like a camper that has a lot of storage space and is bulky. (Id say he’d have a dodge caravan or smth but i dont think a van is really his style). One of the windows is broken.
He has a crush on Dorian but they’ve only talked a handful of times; Dorian is a theoretical physics major (or something equatable or “magical theory,” not sure if magic exists here) but is a huge history buff (and giant nerd) who works at the student library part time, which is where Lavellan wishes he had a job and also where he met Dorian to begin with. Dorian helped him pick out some of the more worthwhile texts and they had coffee together on his break; Lavellan has since taken to spying on him in between classes and hiding behind bookshelves, trying to be smooth. Dorian thinks it’s endearing and frustrating all in one go; its not as if they havent talked before.
Probably at some point Dorian walks out into the student parking lot after work and notices Lavellans shitty car parked under a tree somewhere, all the windows down and with Lavellan napping in the back seat. It’s late, the sun is setting, it’s getting chilly and Dorian wonders why this odd Dalish kid is sleeping in the near-empty lot. He unlocks the passenger door (easy enough, with the windows down), sets himself in the passenger seat, pulls out his notebook and writes his name and number down before stuffing it in his jacket pocket and draping the (stylish, expensive) coat across Lavellan with the message “You looked a little cold, so I left you this. Do try to take care of it. This is not a permanent gift, mind you. If you want to repay me, give me a call and maybe we can get something to eat. At the very least you could return the jacket. - Your Favorite Archivist.”
Then he shows up at the Advisers Apartment. Happy accident? Not to Lavellan.
Dorian also pays for all the dates before Lavellan even realizes whats going on or can get a word in edgeways
