    Summary

    “If this doesn’t work, if something happens, I just want you to know that you are an ocean, and my hands have never been more privileged to drown in your waves..”

    ( Things are hard these days. Taehyung used to smile a lot. A stupid and pointless observation, sure, but a true one. )

    It's always the little things.

    Summary

    Modern AU: Hawke's name might almost be funny if it weren't quite so true, but through such accuracy and tragedy she's led towards family she never expected to find, towards healing and salvation she never could have believed she'd ever deserve.

    This story is centred around neurodivergence and broad mental health issues, and how powerfully music can affect tones, moods, and even lives is going to be a strong theme as well. Warnings will always be placed in the tags, which will be updated as needed, as well as in the beginning notes of each chapter, even at the cost of potential spoilers if it ever comes to that.

    Summary

    “Yuanfen” (Chinese): A relationship by fate or destiny. This is a complex concept. It draws on principles of predetermination in Chinese culture, which dictate relationships, encounters and affinities, mostly among lovers and friends. In common usage yuanfen means the “binding force” that links two people together in any relationship.

    But interestingly, “fate” isn’t the same thing as “destiny.” Even if lovers are fated to find each other they may not end up together. The proverb, “have fate without destiny,” describes couples who meet, but who don’t stay together, for whatever reason. It’s interesting, to distinguish in love between the fated and the destined. Romantic comedies, of course, confound the two.

    Summary

    She was stubborn as well as kind, and loved him beyond reason. Read as a stand-alone from the start, from Chapter 43 to skip the re-telling of canon story (Lavellan PoV), or in parallel with other points of view given in Mind Heart and Under the Fresco. Wild dreams, lore and slow-burning veilfire. Smut occasionally then more towards the end, Chapter 53 onwards; romance and angst throughout. Likelihood of happy ending: 91%.

    Chapters 01-26: Haven to Corypheus' defeat /
    Chapters 27-42: Jaws of Hakkon, Descent & Trespasser /
    Chapters 43-64: What Lavellan did next
