(Click on the dates for countdowns; the fest is following MDT/Mountain Time)

Rules

For the purposes of this fest, the prompts themselves are considered warnings. If you have issues with this policy, we recommend either not participating or using Dreamwidth blocker.

MOST IMPORTANT RULE: Comments posted unanon will be deleted. This doesn't mean you aren't welcome here! If you'd like the content of your comment back, contact us at the Admin post.

For Prompters and Readers
  1. Subject lines should include the game, characters and/or pairing you want. Feel free to be as descriptive as you'd like. Warnings aren't required, but they also aren't banned.
  2. You don't have to write or draw. It's anon, and we aren't going to stalk you.
  3. Do not comment on other people's prompts to try and change pairings or characters. Post your own version with the characters you want instead.
  4. If you fail to respond to a 'is this okay?' kind of question about any of your prompts by the 19th day, it'll be taken as an enthusiastic yes, no matter what the question is.
  5. There are no subject bans. You may prompt anything you want.
  6. If you don't want to answer questions, say so. That will work as blanket permission for anything people might want to do with your prompt.
  7. New Spoiler Policy! Any prompts related to the Trespasser DLC must have SPOILER in the comment header.
For Artists and Writers
  1. No claiming prompts, please, as multiple fills are welcome!
  2. Minimum wordcount per fill is 100 words.
  3. All content is allowed and all warnings are optional, but if you want to write or draw extreme kinks** for a prompt that doesn’t specifically request them, you have ask the prompter first.
  4. If the artist requests it, the mods will repost art fills as an embedded picture in a reply to their comment. NSFW art will be labelled as such in the subject line by re-posting mods. Art involving underaged characters in porn situations will not be re-posted as an embed.
  5. New Spoiler Policy! Any fills for Trespasser DLC-related prompts must keep the prompt's SPOILER warning in the comment header. Do not include Trespasser DLC spoilers in your fill unless the prompt is about Trespasser, or unless the prompter says it's okay.
** "extreme kinks" for the purposes of this exchange include but are not necessarily limited to: extreme underage, major character death, scat/watersports/emetophilia, extreme gore, and bestiality. Please use reasonable discretion, and ask a mod if you have any questions!

For Everyone

This is a Choose Not to Warn fest. At no point will any comment be deleted for failure to warn of its content in the subject lines. They will be deleted for rampaging dickery and failure to follow the rules.
 
Unanon comments will be deleted or screened.
Attempts at policing other people's fun will be deleted.
Prompts posted after the end of the 7th day will be deleted.
Links to off-meme posts posted prior to end of the 21st day will be deleted.
Concerns are to be directed to the Admin post. If posted here, they will be deleted.
Fills that have spectacularly failed to fulfill the prompt/been posted to the wrong spot will be screened. You can request a copy of your work at the Admin post.

The rules may change without warning in response to unforeseen circumstances, like us thinking of better ones.

FILL: Dorian/Male Trevelyan - Incest

Male Trevelyan/Dorian, pretty G-rated except for the whole incest part. Hope this works for you, OP!

--

"Where There's Smoke"

--

Trevelyan's surprised to see his cousin at Redwall. Last he'd heard, the Tevinter mage was in, well, Tevinter, where he belonged.

He's surprised, but he really shouldn't be. If there's any certainty in his life, it's that, sooner or later, Dorian Pavus will always turn up.

--

They didn't grow up together, but they saw each other once a year or so. Every year since Dorian was born. Their mothers were sisters. Trevelyan was a few years older and fascinated with his little cousin -- so bright and cheerful, and he listened to Trevelyan's every word. Trevelyan had always been slight, no good with a broadsword, and it was nice to be looked up to for once.

Every reunion they'd show off a new trick they'd learned in the interim. Dorian's were flashier, sure, fireworks in the still night sky. But despite his own talents, he seemed astonished by Trevelyan’s ability to fly a dagger into a target across the courtyard, or to appear out of smoke and nowhere behind him.

Trevelyan turned nineteen, Dorian seventeen, and when they next met Dorian had grown. Sleek muscles he’d never seen on a mage before, skin dark and gleaming, there was a depth of pain and promise in his eyes that made Trevelyan weak at the knees.

And that was the summer Trevelyan's mother confessed a quiet secret to him. A truth he had to carry alone with her.

His father, Bann Trevelyan, was impotent. To preserve the family name she'd lain with Halward Pavus, her sister's husband. Bann Trevelyan didn't know the betrayal, and Halward didn't know there'd been a child of their union -- though he surely suspected.

So Dorian was his half-brother as well as his cousin, and no hours kneeling in the Chantry could scrub the sin from his mind. He could only stifle the heat under shadows, shame, and smiles.

--

“Cousin,” drawled Dorian. “It’s been far too long.”

Trevelyan glanced at his companions, but apparently neither Varric nor Cassandra nor Solas saw anything amiss with Dorian’s familial attitude. All in his head, once again. He made hasty introductions, and they lost the warmth of reunion in the cold necessity of strategy.

Perhaps, as Dorian explained the situation, Trevelyan’s eyes lingered on the long lines of his bronze neck, the way his robes dipped here and clung there. The way his back curved as he leaned over the table.

Perhaps.

--

When he awoke in the future, he thought he’d lost everything.

The castle was a shambles, there were corpses rotting in the corners, and he couldn’t breathe for fear. Keep it together, he chanted silently, keep it together, but there was nobody to keep it together for, and he’d never been any good at doing things just for himself.

Then, a flurry of flame through the shadows. As always, when he turned around, he stumbled into Dorian, who was at last right where Trevelyan needed him to be. Without any energy left for self-restraint, Trevelyan flung himself at his cousin. His brother.

Dorian caught him like they’d rehearsed it and patted his shoulder. “Not taking this well, I see,” he said, and his gentle mockery was music to Trevelyan’s ears. “You’re all right. You’d better be, at least. Because I am definitely not all right, and you’ll need to support me in this trying time.”

Trevelyan choked on a laugh, or a sob, he’d never say with. “You’re insufferable,” he whispered against Dorian’s neck.

When Dorian pressed a warm kiss to his temple, he stilled. Heart thudding.

Dorian stepped back a bit, but lifted a hand to caress Trevelyan’s face. “Is this all right?” he asked. “Please tell me it’s all right.”

Trevelyan’s entire body hummed with the need to say, yes, to lunge forward, to let himself cling to just one thing in this wide false world. Instead, because he could not bear the thought of false pretenses, he looked away.

“Oh,” said Dorian. “My apologies. No hard feelings?” His voice was warm as ever, but his hand as it left Trevelyan’s cheek was shaking.

Trevelyan knew he’d hurt him, and that-- that he couldn’t have. He caught Dorian by the wrist and looked him square in the eyes. “I want you,” he said roughly, sick to his stomach. “Or anything you’ll give me. It’s just--”

“It’s just?”

“We’re brothers. Half brothers.” You don’t want me. I’m unclean. I’m tainted by doubt and the mark on my hand and my need to hold you close and never let--

A slow grin spread across Dorian’s face, and his eyes glinted. “Oh, is that all?” he said, leaning closer. “I’ve known for years.”

A year astray in a doomed world, Trevelyan finally found himself in Dorian’s kiss.

I didn't think incest was my kink either, but I think the prompts here are converting me, haha.

This is incredible. Poor Trevelyan thinking it was his secret to bear. Of course Dorian wouldn't care. Thank you!
