In a text post, list ten FICS that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow. Tag ten five friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!

got tagged by gyzym! tagging: splintmail, augustbird, musical-emjay, amoktimes, funkes and whoever else wants to do it :P

dorian and the iron bull waltzing

(because why not)

very sorry, this hasn’t been looked over by someone else, but hopefully you guys will enjoy it anyway! also, dedicating this to radiophile and cailantheirin, because i know you guys love this ship ♥

Dorian was pacing around Skyhold, trying to forget how infuriating Vivienne could be sometimes. She had locked herself inside her room, proclaiming she in fact had no time for ballroom dancing today, as her study of newly found spell books was “more important”. Of course, it was, Dorian wasn’t an idiot. He knew how ludicrous it sounded to say that he was still practicing dancing. He was a companion to the Inquisitor! Indulging in such activities seemed ridiculous, offensive, even. What would the people he was to save think of him, if they knew? Thank the Maker nobody outside of the Inquisition was aware of his hobby. Between Cassandra who considered it “very unprofessional”, and Sera who snorted every time he so much as mentioned it, he felt embarrassed enough as it was.

i hope you’re ready (for a firefight)

psikeval:

(or, a bit of ill-advised Losers AU)

“This is all we have,” Athos says yet again, like repetition is the key to acceptance.

“How nice,” Flea snaps back at him, rolling her eyes, fingers rending dusty electronics like a bird of prey ripping apart its dinner. “I still can’t do shit with it. Might as well hand me a blender and tell me to send out a signal with that. Do I look like a fucking magician to you?”

And all right, certain difficulties may have arisen, but it could all be much worse. In the aftermath of this latest attempt on their lives, there is surprisingly little chaos and not a single serious injury. Aramis is crouched against a large wooden crate, silent for once, cleaning invisible dirt from his rifle, and Porthos is watching him do it with a half-fascinated, half-pained expression. Par for the course for the two of them, really.

If a murderous Frenchman hadn’t blown up all their shit, it could almost be a good day.

“Does it,” Steve starts, and stops himself just as quickly — he’s been holding back the stupid question for weeks, (was planning, in fact, to suppress it forever) so why would it pop out now — but he can see from the quick, crooked tilt of Bucky’s mouth that he’s not going to get away with it.

“Does it what.” Bucky doesn’t look up. He’s chopping vegetables at the counter, watching with idle interest as the knife in his hands does nothing but crunch through celery.

Steve crosses his arms and frowns down at the floor. “You know what.”

porthos remembers his mother.

he remembers, but lets people believe that he doesn’t—fending for myself since i was five years old can mean a lot of things, after all, and he lets them take the easiest. the clean break of loss, absolute separation, memories dulled and faded to the point of near-extinction.

it didn’t happen that way. it would hurt less if it had.

Mass Effect fic - In a World Kept Small [f!Shepard/Vakarian]

canistakahari:

Title: In a World Kept Small
Author: canistakahari
Fandom: Mass Effect
Pairing: f!Commander Shepard/Garrus Vakarian
Words: 1,371
SummaryShepard can’t save everyone, but she’s damn well going to try.

augustbird:

THOSE LONG FREEDOM YEARS

fandom: dragon age ii

pairing: fenris / male hawke

This is the truth: Hawke has too much power over him and he’s scared of running from one master to the next.

And this is the sad, pathetic truth: Fenris is too broken to know how to be what Hawke deserves.
