    Summary

    It seems the opportunity of a lifetime for Cullen: headlining as executive chef at New York’s newest, most-anticipated restaurant, with a menu he can craft and construct all to his specifications without a care for cost. It’s a risk, leaving the comfortable sous chef position he’s held in London for the past too-many years, and his sister Mia is sure to remind him of the fact. But nothing ventured, nothing gained, so Cullen gathers his things and his dog, Dijon, and heads for New York.

    Dorian is an upcoming fashion designer attempting to strike out with his own line after the retirement of his mentor, Gereon Alexius. But he’s not without help, after dragging Gereon’s son Felix along after him. Their first show is around the corner and they’ve garnered the attention of exactly the sort of people that could make or break their business but they’ve also been beset by nothing but problems with suppliers, venues, and models. Dorian’s determined to make everything work—not least because he has little else to cling to—but all of the fates and their second cousins seem just as determined to get in his way.

    Summary

    Written for this glorious k!meme prompt:

    A mail-order bride industry has popped up in Ferelden to take advantage of all the desperate women left widowed by the Blight.

    After Kirkwall, Isabela is down on her luck. Fortunately this mail order bride thing sounds like the perfect scheme to get back on her feet again. She'll agree to be a bride, breeze into some unsuspecting fool's life, fleece him blind, and be gone before binding vows can be exchanged.

    Meanwhile, Cullen's sister Mia is growing increasingly worried about her brother; he sounds so lonely in his letters home. She decides to send him a very special name-day gift this year.

    He has no idea what's about to hit him....

    Summary

    Written for this flawless k!meme prompt:

    (Anastasia with DAII characters)

    The Vael family was mostly assassinated when Sebastian was a child but he managed to escape though he lost his memory while doing so.

    His grandfather, the only survivor, has offered a reward for the return of his grandson.

    Hawke is a con-artist down on his/her luck when he hears of this reward. Luckily, he meets a Chantry Brother with a Starkhaven accent who just might fool the old man long enough for them to collect the reward.
