    Summary

    The Iron Bull watched Cullen from the beginning, but it took time for Cullen to let himself be seen. After all, he'd become so good at denying what he wanted that he never learned how to take what he needed.

     

    “Half the lasses and lads in Haven have spent weeks trying to figure out how to make you blush. I just happen to be better than them at finding and exploiting the cracks in people’s armor.”

    “That’s rather ironic, given how little of it you actually wear.”

    “Are you kidding? That’s one of my best strategies. When people think that they can see everything about you already, they don’t worry so much about protecting their own weak spots.”

    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.

    Summary

    In which Cullen is almost terminally awkward, Bull and Dorian are literally brothers (because why not?), and Bull tries really hard to be good.

    Or: In which Dorian tries to set up his brother and his roommate, if he can avoid killing them for being so clueless.

    (You might get cavities from reading it. Don't say I didn't warn you.)

    Based off this Tumblr post, though only very loosely. Because I usually can't stick to a prompt to save my life.

    Summary

    In which Dorian and Bull pick each other up at a club, Dorian's family disapproves, and Max and Krem think this is all a terrible idea right up until they don't. Dorian's father dies, Dorian's mother is cold, and Bull wonders how the hell he let himself get dragged into this (and then remembers: because Dorian).

    When I started writing this story, it was supposed to be fluff and angst of the "one-night stand that isn't" variety, with a side order of fake-relationship silliness. It was also supposed to be 10,000 - 15,000 words long. And then somewhere along the way, it became a story about two people with shitty pasts trying to figure out how to build a healthy relationship without any real template to work from.

    Let's not even talk about the word count, and the only thing I'll say about the chapter count is that it's an estimate. At one point, we were ten chapters from the end for...uhhhh...about ten chapters. Barring a meteor hitting me in the head, I will finish this story, but I have absolutely no idea how long that will take, either in words or in months.

    Summary

    Not that this has ever happened to me or anything. This is all purely fucking hypothetical.
