A/N: kinda went with a different format with this one, hope that’s okay !! and i hope you don’t mind me focusing more on the lead up to reuniting with him more than the actual event. and ahH i love bellamy thanks for requesting, here is my first bellamy one shot ! (and i actually kinda like it woO)
It’s always entertaining reiterating to my mother that I don’t want to get married or have kids.
“You’ll change your mind when you’re older.”
“It’s because you’re not eating right”
“You don’t want to give me grandkids?”
If you want a baby so bad go have one.
(She also forgets the Events of last year that mean I likely medically cannot have kids, so in the event that I actually wanted them at some point, this whole Discourse would be super upsetting. So there’s that too.)
Jennifer Morrison should know by now that going to pride events and doing things to like, actually show real support for queer people and the real problems they face, means nothing if you don’t want the fictional character you play to hook up with another female fictional character - one who screwed over your character numerous times.
It’s like she hasn’t even been paying attention to the fandom discourse. So problematic!
Well, this is a dilemma. Because my oldest WIP would be the story I started writing when I was in high school, which no one is getting to see. So I’ve decided to go with the oldest WIP I actually intend to finish someday, Unbound.
In case you missed my Endless List of WIPs, this is a f!Hawke/Fenris Dragon Age fic, wherein Hawke is a mage and also a masochist. This is discovered by Fenris under less than ideal circumstances, and throws a wrench into their developing friendship at first, until Fenris develops feelings for Hawke anyway (inevitably).
There’s an excerpt at the end of the post up there; here’s another one using actual game events, featuring a few changes that I felt needed to be made to the original scene. See if you can spot them! (878 words)
Varric quickly filled him in as they walked. “So Samson was a sleeze, no surprise there, but he directed us to a warehouse where we found out the kid was gone already and Ser Thrask’s daughter was an abomination. So yeah, typical Tuesday.”
Fenris had little time to process this information before they’d arrived. The slavers were milling about at the bottom of some stairs, presumably readying to head out on another raid. His hands curled into fists, his lyrium firmly reined in, for the moment. Beside him, Varric cocked Bianca, and through his markings Fenris could feel the swell of Hawke’s mana on his other side. Slavers were always a favourite target.
The leader, as indicated by his ridiculous hat, gave a slimy smile, his confidence unshaken by the sight of four heavily armed strangers wandering into his camp. Fenris was always surprised that Hawke’s apostasy, so glaringly obvious to him, went blithely unnoticed by most others.
“Look what we have here, boys!” The slaver, Danzig, spread his arms wide, his voice as oily as the rest of him. “Volunteers!” The word conjured up foggy scenes from Danarius’ household, where slaves selected for punishment would be forced to “volunteer” to save the others. It never worked, of course, but not volunteering was so much worse.
He swallowed. Though such treatment had never been directed at him, the favourite, he was familiar with the acidic knot in his stomach heralded by such a tone. He bit back a snarl. He would never be chained again. The slaver sent a sly wink in his direction as he mentioned selling them to Tevinter and he wondered how much the man knew or guessed about his history.
“Fenris…?” Hawke’s eyes never left the slavers. So much meaning from a simple word! She was always so careful not to give him direct orders, even in the heat of battle: from the first she’d trusted him implicitly to know what needed to be done – not that it was difficult to grasp her meaning here. He’d likely have done the same, even if she hadn’t asked, and that knowledge was contained within her tone as well. The fact she used his name informed him that these slavers would soon be dead, not a single one spared to spread the tale.
Oh yeah I love A Series of Unfortunate Events, the way the adults just [clenches fist] consistently disregard children’s allegations of abuse and allow them to remain in increasingly perilous situations, a word here which means “dangerous and hard to watch”
The Pokémon GO Eggstravaganza is nearly here! From 1:00 P.M. PDT on April 13 to 1:00 P.M. PDT on April 20, 2017, a greater variety of Pokémon can now be found in 2 km Eggs (yes, they have to be new eggs collected after the event start unfortunately, so clear out your current eggs!) Your Egg-venture doesn’t stop there, though—you’ll also earn extra candy for every hatch!
Throughout this Eggstravaganza, you’ll also level up even faster with double XP! This means that using a Lucky Egg would give you 4x the bonus (great for gaining some XP). To make this Eggstravaganza even sweeter, Lucky Eggs will be 50% off in the in-game shop!
Have an egg-cellent time hatching some rare Pokemon everyone!
