"Give me the vial Anders "
"No, you'll get sick!" A flash of flame and two shades disintegrate
"We are going to die; I know the moves to take them down! Now give me the vial!" It was a last resort only, saved for the direst of circumstances. Never to be used unless there was certain death. These were the rules and as much as the mage didn't want to admit it if he'd had to write a situation that deemed the use of the vial appropriate this was the one he'd write.
"No, we can win without it." He would be stubborn to the very end

I knew signing up for Ostagar was a bad idea I just knew it. Why'd I do it? Because my idiot brother wouldn't listen the fool.
He wants to be a hero, a bloody knight in a story book, reaping all the glory and fame while he crushes my head under his boot. I'm the eldest you see I get all the attention. Carver doesn't like this he never has, and for the life of me I can't understand WHY!

Maeve groaned in her seat.
"Now love, we aren't in Lowtown anymore and it is always nice to make a good first impression you never know when you'll need to call on friends."
"But Mother, these aren't our friends, how many would come to our aid if we were suddenly penniless? How many of these stuffed shirts would even glance our way if we lived in Lowtown?" Maeve glared at the crowd of guests packed into her mansion's ballroom, "They are only being nice to us because we have money."
Maeve was pissed. She was stuck in her mansion, she was wearing makeup, she was stuffed into a tight corset that pushed her breasts almost up to her ear

Also, mature content warning...there is smut, but it is tasteful I promise.
The rain dripped down the side of the Hightown estates, forming rivers and streams amongst the cobblestone pathways. The storm arrived quickly, flooding the streets and causing all the Hightown nobles to run indoors.
Maeve Hawke didn't notice. She walked in a daze through the rain, her hair plastered to her neck and shoulders as she wandered the town in the elaborate gown Orana had dressed her in.
It was pale blue silk and soaked through, Maeve abandon

Blood so much blood it was dripping off the sides of the bed, the sheets were beyond ruined, and Anders couldn't have cared less.
What he did care about was the tiny woman in the center of the bed, stretched out but still seeming smaller than ever. She wasn't supposed to look like this she was supposed to be tall, strong, stubborn
Now she lay in the bed, mewling kitten like noises in pain as the blood dripped onto the floor, and there was nothing more that could be done.
Anders couldn't take it anymore, falling to his knees beside the bed as he gripped her hand, "Maeve " It was a half choked sob, "You can't lea

Anders was sick. Really sick it was icky, it was gross Maeve didn't want to touch him.
She did anyway, the poor mage's puppy eyes were worse than Fenris.
Maeve pushed the door to her room open with her foot, "Anders?"
There was a long, raspy groan from the mound of blankets on her bed in response.
"You want some soup?"
" what kind of soup?"
Maeve rolled her eyes. Dear Maker if he makes me cook again I will kill him.
She breathed a sigh of relief as she brought the bowl to the side of the bed.
"You're going to have to sit up."

"It's staring at me "
Anders lowered his book, glancing in the direction of their new roommate, "It's a cat Maeve, they do that."
"But it's creepy " Maeve glared at the fluffy monster at the foot of the bed, growling in its general direction.
"Just ignore it love"
Anders smirked, "I was talking to the cat."
"Sounds like a certain apostate wants to get a broken nose "
The cat was one of the fluffiest creatures Maeve had ever seen. Its fur was reminiscent of a silver tabby, its eyes an interesting shade of blue/green. It was a beautiful cat though Maeve didn't care.

Her fingers, rough from years of sword fighting, gently caress the long, lanky body beside her. Her touch travels from freckle to freckle, sliding over smooth flesh marred occasionaly by scars from darkspawn claws.
He shifts slightly, skin rippling with goosebumps as her nails skim down his spine. This causes her full lips to stretch into a smile, Maeve leaning forward to kiss his shoulder blade.
The pale blue sky visible from her bedroom window is clouding up, snow predicted to fall by evening. All the signs of a gloomy day surround her, but she ignores the feeling of melancholy warring with her newfound joy. Today she will abandon sorro

The world stops, life freezing as the forest fills.
The band of mercenaries are a diverse group, hosting dwarves, elves, humans, and dogs. They move in secret, a tiny caravan traveling through the mountains.
Their faces are somber, guarded, as if they expect assassins to jump out of every shadow. The frowns and stony expressions soften as the day wears on, the group finally stopping at their destination.
The peak overlooks the beauty of Tevinter; the sun just beginning it's decent.
Individuals move, preparing for a ritual that has been performed s

I don't know when I fell asleep, or how I ended up with my head resting on the edge of the cot Issac was occupying...was... When I awoke he was gone. The ragged blanket I had covered him in last night unceremoniously laying in a heap on the floor. It was all for nothing...he could not forgive me. I wouldn't forgive me. I climb into the empty cot. It smells of booze and stale sweat, but I didn't care. The sheets twist in my hands, I bury my face in them to muffle a choked sob. Why can't I do anything right?
It feels like hours as I lay there alone. I can't do this anymore. I need to get out of here, I have to ge

He is a distraction from the cause, we will not let him get in the way of Justice!
He could help, I can't do this alone, I am but one man.
That is not the true motivation, you have ulterior motives.

A slow day, I set to making an inventory of my healing supplies, as Bethany hovered behind me. As much as I appreciated the pair of extra magic hand at the clinic, she occasionally was a bit more trouble than that was worth. The girl had a tendency to zone out whenever I gave instruction, a dreamy expression crossing her face, I cannot even fathom what she is thinking about half the time. For some reason she always seems fidgety, stuttering when speaking to me, prone to bouts of nervous laughter, and dropping things. True while these are annoying she does make up for it in ability to take care of most of the patients with minor injuri

I was just coming to the realization of everything. Karl was dead, dead at my hand, by my mercy. My new companions demanded explanations, especially Issac. It seemed my...condition... had frightened his sister. My head was swimming. Those Templar bastards had made Karl tranquil, emotionless, nothing but a shell of the man I had once cared so much for...almost... no that was a long time ago. We had both come to terms with it in the years that followed, even had a genuine friendship before I left the tower that last time. As painful as it was, he had taught me a valuable lesson, a mage cannot fall in love. I had man

"Come on those Qunari are a vicious lot, It would be nice to have my number one healer with me." Once again Issac is pestering me to go one one of his errands, not that I mind. I sometimes just feign annoyance to see how bad he wants me to go with him. It feels nice to be appreciated, it feels nice to be appreciated by him.
"Issac you can see how busy I am at the clinic. Look why don't you just take Bethany?"
"Aww but her healing isn't as good as yours." He wined.
"Well maybe if you just wore some armor, you wouldn't need an expert healer" I quipped, smirking slightly.

"Sleep well?" He asks avoiding eye contact.
"Yes, you?" I answer. I had a feeling that the morning would be awkward.
"Yeah...let's breakdown camp." He moves to start untying the canvas from the wooden frames.
Hardly a word is shared between us on the way back. I am not sure if it is for the best. Constantly the urge rises. Just push him down...take him on the sand, run hands along every muscled inch, dig fingers into blonde locks, cover those lips with my own. My mind wars. I have not wanted anything so much...with such intensity it hurts. Would giving in be so bad? I feel almost normal around him...like containing Justice, no...Vengeanc

"Oh come on didn't you walk across half of Ferelden to get away from Templars." He laughs slowing down a bit so I can catch up.
"It wasn't really by choice. I had to move or they'd find me. That simple. Of course they ended up finding me most of the time anyway." Every bloody time. "Anyway are you sure its safe out here?

No I didn't scare him away...he didn't listen. He stands nervously waiting for me to finish with a patient. "Now run along, and remember to be more careful." I tussle the boys hair. Poor lad had shattered his arm trying to climb into someones window. Probably to steal some food. "Here." I hand him a loaf of bread. It was supposed to be for my lunch today, but he needs it more than me.
"Thanks!" He grins ear to ear, and has such a lively spring to his step as he leaves.
"That was nice of you." Issac comments. " Hey, I need your help on something Anders. You remember that boy we helped?"
