14/100 days of productivity

190/470 pages read - what a wonderful winter morning. I recently tried this new tea from Woolworths and its slowly growing on me👏🏻 I’m not reading as fast as I ought to but I am still ahead of my second semester reading.

I’ll be travelling to Botswana next week so I’ll have plenty of time to catch up whilst on holiday💁🏼

Idk why, but i keep sending you random prompts, I hope you're okay with that1 Anyways... Varlen and Dorian dancing at the Winter Palace? What was that like? Was Varlen nervous?

So… Varlen was a bit of a mess at the Winter Palace (1600 words, most under the cut <3)

“I thought I might find you here.”

Varlen perked up slightly, turning away from the railing to catch a glimpse of Dorian as he strolled across the balcony. The dark haired man cut a striking figure in the Inquisition’s formal dress attire, the deep blue of the outfit providing an impressive counterpoint to the man’s grey eyes. Even as Dorian approached, Varlen felt the beginnings of a smile already tugging at the corner of his lips. He really is something. What does he even see in me?

“Am I really that predictable?” Varlen asked, turning back to gaze out over the courtyard. Dorian joined him, folding his arms atop the railing and drinking in the sight for himself. The Winter Palace certainly proved that Orlesian nobility spared no expense.

“Oh I wouldn’t say predictable,” Dorian replied. “But we are all creatures of habit – at least, to a degree. Although, I certainly don’t blame you for fleeing the ballroom. Dreadfully stuffy, and that’s just the Orlesians.”

Varlen laughed, shaking his head. “You know, you’re going to get us both in trouble some day, saying things like that out-loud.”
