pairing: Theo Mahariel x Zevran x Anders


Theo looked around the table. So far Anders was drunk and couldn’t even play cards anymore, while Nathaniel was surprisingly good at them. Oghren had lost and passed out ages ago, and Zevran was watching from the side. The game finished finally after a few more rounds, and Theo helped him to his feet.

“Have I ever told you how good you smell?” Anders asked drunkenly.

Theo snorted and shook his head. “You can tell me later, after you haven’t tried to drink all our wine stocks. I know you have a lot of burdens on your shoulders Anders, but this can’t be as fun as you think it is.” Theo remarked.

Anders sighed as Theo lay him down and Zevran brought in some water. “I think our adventures into Deep Roads below the Keep may have gotten to him.” Zevran remarked.

“I mean… me too, finding out we have darkspawn below us at all times? Not exactly on the list of things I wanted to find out about this place.” Theo remarked.

Zevran gave a nod and Theo finished helping Anders drink some water, before laying down next to him. Zevran moved in and kissed both their cheeks.

“Mi Amor, why do you do it? Why do you continue to be involved in the politics? Or helping lost mages? Or working hard like this?” Zevran asked.

“Because if I don’t, someone else is going to make the decisions, and I’m not sure they’d be the truly right ones. If you’re asking me why I care… I don’t have a clan anymore, and I’m here. This is sort of my new clan… and I want to take care of it, so I don’t lose my newest family that I stay with.” Theo remarked.

“What if more things happen that are beyond your control?” Zevran asked.

“Then I will face them, and I hope you will help me as well.” Theo remarked.

“Mi Amor, I told you I would storm the gates of the dark city itself, I meant it.” the Antivan elf remarked
