    Summary

    I saw this prompt on kmeme and was captivated:
    "I have this crazy idea, which is sort of like a song-inspired-fic but stretched out to an entire album. Take an album, any album that you can't stop listening to, and write about a pairing that you're obsessed with, in a series of drabbles or shorts or mini-fills that matches up to the title/lyrics/feeling of a song, but it's a bit of a commitment because it's an entire album.
    This could be ANYTHING. Angsty, fluffy, sexy. It is up to A!A."

    I'm using my favourite album by my favourite band. Mummer by XTC. The original 1983 release.
    updated 4/10 to include links to lyrics and music.

    Summary

    Hawke never meant any harm—she was just trying to do something nice for her friends. But when one of her mad magical experiments goes wrong, it somehow ends with both Anders and Fenris utterly convinced that they've been married to each other for the last four years. They're definitely going to kill her when they find out. If they find out.

    Fill for this kmeme prompt: Anders and Fenris end up losing their memories at the same time, and somehow assume they're married. Others don't dare to say otherwise in fear of making their mental states worse (or because it's just too funny).

    Summary

    Over the centuries, there developed in the Circle of Magi a tradition of showing affection, regard and intent through the giving of small, practical trinkets. It became a way to dodge any suspicion from the Circle authorities--who could object to the gift of some paper, or a single coin?

    In which Fenris is a practical elf, and accidentally tells Anders through tokens that he likes him VERY MUCH. But (at first) Fenris has no idea, and Anders is daily more baffled and suspicious. As seen on Tumblr, and now with lovely art by AO3 user Prudabaga.

    Summary

    Written for prompt: "an AU where my muse is a mermaid/man being kept in an aquarium".

    Varlen is not the first of the merfolk to be found by humanity.

    Thank the Creators for that.

    After being captured and put on display in the foyer of a high-end hotel, the days blur past in a series of camera flashes and gawking faces. Trapped in an empty tank, filled to the brim with silent water, Varlen begins to fear he is losing his mind as he drifts aimlessly before a sea of watchful eyes. A life spent longing to meet human beings is replaced by a desperate need to get as far away from them as possible, but no one cares enough to help him. They all just want to stare. Smile. Take a photo. Tap the glass.

    Then, he meets one of the good ones.
