    Summary

    Once, back in Kirkwall, Cullen had an arrangement with a member of the city guard that satisfied his needs. But time changed all things, and he despaired of ever finding a similar arrangement again - that was, until he met The Iron Bull. Problem being that Bull seemed to care far more about sorting out the nitty-gritty of such an arrangement than Cullen ever has.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is an amazing, amazing Cullen/Bull story that really gets at all the untreated trauma Cullen carries around with him. It's as much about the what's going on in his head, and how some of what fucked him up so bad in Kinloch Hold and Kirkwall gets unfucked by his evolving relationship with the Iron Bull, who has his own, though fewer, issues with different things. Do read all the tags because Cullen is very much into pain, but it is done very well, and Bull knows how to take care of him. I really liked the portrayal of Cullen here, where he's holding things together both better and worse than he thinks he is, and he refuses to be a pushover even though he needs to learn to let other people help him. He has good reason not to trust, but part of his journey is learning that others in the Inquisition like and love him for who he is, past sins and all, and it hurts in all the right ways. There is a fantastic friendship between Cullen and Cassandra, too. This is a fic that's going to stick with me.

    Summary

    “Pepper and I are—” Tony pauses for a fraction of a second while his brain runs rapidly through the ways he can finish that sentence. In the off again portion of our depressingly on again-off again relationship? Hopefully temporarily consciously uncoupled? On a break?

    “Pregnant?” asks Steve, perking up like a dog that’s just been offered a treat, and not just any dog, one of those wholesome happy ones like a golden retriever or whatever. Maybe the guy’s just looking for any bit of good news right now, given it’s been one nasty surprise after another the past few days. Tony kind of does want to offer him a treat, or pet him, or something. That’s really not a good enough reason for what Tony says next though.

    “Yeah, uh, yeah, we are.”

    Summary

    Cullen struggles with his lyrium addiction. Some days are better than others.

    Or (if you prefer a silly summary for a not-so-silly fic): In which Cullen is suicidally depressed, Dorian is a high-functioning alcoholic, and Bull just wants them both to be happy, except when he wants to crack their heads together for being emotionally stunted idiots.

    Spoilers galore, particularly for Cullen's, Dorian's, and Bull's personal quests.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Oh man if you want a heartbreaking, yet amazingly perfect and ultimately hopeful Cullen-has-trauma-can't-deal-but-gets-there-with-Bull-and-Dorian fic this is for you. I feel like this is a story that understands depression (pay attention to the tags, this is not a fluffy fic). Cullen's head is not a nice place and the focus of the story is him and his ultimate survival through a really dark period that begins when he quits lyrium. Starting a relationship with Iron Bull is the beginning, and it enfolds Dorian, who's a mess of issues, and I just really love how this story evolved and they all get through it.

    Summary

    Mireille Trevelyan was a senior enchanter before the Circles fell. Arguably, she's moved up in the world, since now she's the Herald of Andraste at the low cost of the deaths of everyone she held dear. She'd really like to argue that last point with whoever is in charge of this sort of thing.

    A story about changing your worldview, acknowledging your faults and your traumas, and building something new out of the ashes of the only way of life you've ever known. And also about rivalry romances and punching each other.
