Sure we don’t know the fate of Hawke for certain, but who cares? Let’s immortalize the Heroes of the Dragon Age with a whole lot of art and fic!

Discussion Post | Admin Post

OVER! Head to Reveals!


Day 1 - September 6 - Prompts! You will have seven days to put as many prompts as you'd like on this post. And if you start writing them early, well that's just good planning!
Day 8 -
September 13 - Prompting ends, posting begins! You have 14 days to write, draw, and potentially diorama as many prompts as you can. Cross-posting to the anonymous AO3 collection is allowed.
Day 19 - September 24 - This is the cut-off day for prompters to reply to any questions about their prompt. Unanswered questions are considered enthusiastic agreement.
Day 21 -
September 26 - Last day of posting! All fills must be posted by 11:59 PM North American Mountain Time.
Day 22 - September 27 - Party time! The reveals post goes up, and you now have the option of going unanon in whatever manner you please. The AO3 collection will be de-anoned, and will remain open indefinitely for unanon cross-posting.

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


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.

On his run south, Fenris doesn't stop in Kirkwall, instead running into Zevran who is conveniently there to help kill the group of slavers sent after him. While initially distrustful of Zevran, Fenris is taught to live (whether he wants to be or not) by the flirty assassin.

Carver feels that something is off when Samson recalls the remaining Templars, and trusting his instincts, he flees with a handful of other Templars instead. He knows it's foolhardy, that the lyrium leashes him to the Order as tight as any manacle. While fighting slavers, Fenris unexpectedly finds Carver, very obviously suffering through lyrium withdrawal. It's a risk, but Fenris decides the best course of action is visiting this "Inquisition" that everyone is talking about.

When Cullen joins what will become the Inquisition, he doesn't do so alone. Carver and a number of his men follow. None know that Cullen has decided to stop taking lyrium, and Carver is upset/confused by the changes in his friend (lover?). When it's revealed, how will Carver/his men react?

In his grief, Carver (Templar or Grey Warden) seeks out the Inquisition to get more information about his brother/sister's death. He certainly doesn't expect the familiar face he finds there, or the comfort Cullen offers.

Zevran though he could outlast a Grey Warden. Boy was he proven wrong.

Alistair/Zevran and/or Male Warden

Date: 2015-09-13 04:37 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
Alistair isn't nearly as innocent as everyone believes, having been frequently given to Arl Eamon's guest as entertainment. He curses his elven blood for making him so "pretty", and expects to find respite among the Templars. Instead he finds worse cruelty hiding among their ranks. He expects no different among the Warden's but Duncan makes no motion to use him. After the events of Ostagar, traveling with the last known Warden in Ferelden, Alistair slowly relaxes. Of course, that's when his past rears it's ugly head, and Zevran and/or the Warden are left to try to pick up the pieces. Maybe one of them has sex with Alistair, thinking that he wants it, but really he's just doing what he think he has to do.

Alistair / OR & Cullen

Date: 2015-09-13 04:39 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
(Maybe Alistair has a similar past to the above prompt?) Cullen's faith is tested for the first time when his fellow templars savage a young templar recruit, blond and pretty. They invite him to join in, but he refuses, tries to get them to stop. They say he can take the recruit's place. Wet eyes beg for his help, and Cullen hates himself as he remains silent.

It's tested again in Kinloch Hold, one of his rescuers the very man who he refused to help. Alistair was a better man than he, and Cullen strives to do better when he's transferred to Kirkwall. What he finds at the Gallows is even worse than what he left behind. The Templar Order has forgotten that not only are they supposed to protect the populations from magic, but they're also supposed to protect mages. If the templars won't do it, he'll finds others who will help, like Hawke and his friends and the Mage Underground. As tension grows between the factions, he's not shocked when something finally gives. Seeing a fellow templar cut down a mage child, new to the circle, Cullen sends a few men he knows are loyal to him to get the mages out of the city, and with the remainder set about restoring order to the city.

When Cassandra offers him a position with the Inquisition, he has every intention of refusing. He's failed as a templar, but decides to take it as a second chance, a new chance to make things right in a world that's gone crazy. When the Warden they are seeking unexpectedly turns out to be Alistair, Cullen wonders if it's too late to apologize for being a coward.

Alistair has only been tangentially involved in Grey Warden business for nearly a decade, instead spending his time traveling across Thedas as a mercenary and eventually becomes one of Bull’s Chargers. When the group joins the Inquisition, Alistair is instantly distrustful of the Tevinter mage in their midst, having seen far too much cruelty in Imperium. Dorian had had "relationships" built on worse.

Mercenary Alistair has been hired by Halward Pavus to rescue his son who has been abducted. When Alistair finds Dorian, it quickly becomes apparent that he’d been lied to. Alistair decides to stick around, and strikes up an unexpected friendship with the vain mage.

Loyalty Kink/Protectiveness/Possessiveness

Just. Character A demonstrating extreme and utter loyalty and devotion to Character B. Being super protective in battle and social situations, whether or not Character B notices that they're being protected.

And bonus points for jealousy/possessiveness that either of them has to reign in all day until they're finally alone and they can prove their devotion to each other with steamy rough sex :D

My kingdom for Cullen/Male Lavellan, Blackwall/Male Lavellan, Iron Bull/Male Lavellan, Alistair/Male Elf Warden. (Hint, I really like the tall, strong human & Qunari warrior men being ridiculously loyal to and protective of the willowy elf men. My id, it is extremely obvious...)

Fenris knows more about invisible chains that most, and respects the Commander's struggle to be free of his. He knows a lot about running too, running from his past, running from his problems, running from himself, running for the sake of running until he doesn't remember why he was running anymore. He sees it in Cullen too. Striking up an unexpected friendship with the Commander of the newly created Inquisition, maybe they can teach each other a little about living.

Once upon a time Bull was hired by the Crows to kill a certain wayward elf. Ultimately Bull failed, and mostly put the wily elf from his mind, until the day he unexpectedly turned up in Skyhold. To be more specific, in Bull's room, in the middle of the night, a very sharp knife pressed against his throat.

Fenris didn't like the mage, and not just merely because it was principal, but because the way Solas looked at him reminded him of the mages who watched the blood magic shows that Danarius had put on, too self-important to dirty themselves with such things, but still craving it. Fenris' dislike didn't stop the other heat from rising in his blood when he looked at Solas.

I'm totally up for Fenris' markings to actually being Solas' vallaslin if you want to go that route. :D

Dorian's first taste of the forbidden was with Danarius's most prized slave, given to him for the night to do with him what he pleased. Dorian was sure Danarius expected Dorian to bleed the elf, not to fuck him. It was a night he would never forget and would always look upon fondly. Years later, he never expected to encounter the elf again, didn't expect to feel the man's fist inside of his chest, quite literally holding his heart in his hand. Raising his hand, Dorian didn't call down magic like he should, hand instead cupping Fenris' cheek before quite literally swooning in his arms.

Dorian/Male Trevelyan - Incest

Date: 2015-09-13 04:57 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
The fact that they're related does come up relatively early in their relationship, though it's removed "by at least three ages."

I'd really love to see something where they're more closely related though. Like say even half-brothers (or first cousins)?

Perhaps Halward had an affair with Trevelyan's mother at some point and he was the result (or perhaps Halward produced an elf-blooded child with an elf slave and made a deal with House Trevelyan to take him in), and it comes out after Halward seeks out Dorian in Redcliffe when he witnesses the flirting. Dorian would be understandably upset at the irony of the situation because obviously the world hasn't fucked him over enough already and he would totally begin to fall for the one man who turns out to be his brother.

(Thought: What if Halward didn't send the elf-blooded baby away, but rather sold his mother to House Alexius [or even kept him in his own household]. But when they're both teens Dorian and the boy get caught in bed together and he gets sent away and still eventually becomes the Inquisitor [still becomes a Trevelyan somehow?].)

Basically I'd like to see the fallout of surprise!incest.

Maybe Dorian and Trevelyan don't get along at first because of Trevelyan's prejudice against Tevinter (preferably for good reason). Slowly Trevelyan begins to realize that his initial assumptions about the other man are very wrong.

Also I love Dorian with issues and over compensating.

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.



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.

Cullen - Mabari

From: (Anonymous)
Cullen hears a rumour of a much too thin mabari haunting the area around Skyhold.

He immediately launches into a quest to lure it in with strategic bowls of stew, a roving patrol, sitting outside with raw bones and whistling loudly, all very casual-like, up until the very thin and very pregnant mabari comes up to him.

With the Chantry destroyed, the Templar Order in shambles, and everyone he knows scattered to the far winds, Carver is at a loss for what to do after he flees Kirkwall. He doesn't expect to run into a certain prickly elf fighting against slavers, but decides joining him is as good a choice of action as any.

Cullen/Male Lavellan

Date: 2015-09-13 05:21 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
The Inquisitor may have been an elven mage, never having seen the cruelties of either the Tower or the Gallows, but he was still taught to fear templars lest he be taken to such place by them. It was that fear, that power, that held Cullen back, knowing that he could never voice his desire for fear that the Inquisitor's interest would be a product of that fear, complying to avoid conflict. Cullen also feared the power the Inquisitor held, the demons that whispers temptations in his ears. Would a relationship withstand a foundation of fear, self-hate and doubt? (Probably not easily.)

Cullen/Male Adaar - Knotting

Date: 2015-09-13 05:23 am (UTC)
From: (Anonymous)
Cullen never expected a relationship with the Inquisitor, a Qunari, to be easy, but he expected the sex to at least be so. He's certainly not prepared for certain aspects of Qunari biology (Qunari have knots. :D ), but quickly comes to relish it.
