Welcome to 21 Days of Thedas!

Put on your party hats - it’s time for the Hawke-Might-Be-Dead Memorial Party! It’s a wake, it's a prompt meme, it’s a kink meme, it’s a fandom party celebration! 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.

Codex Entry Characters

I can't be the only person fascinated by the characters we only hear about in Codex entries, right? Pick a codex entry, and write about the people we hear about in them.

For example, there's a great horror story hiding in the story of the person who wrote about the Envy Demon (

Or, what happened to the man who wanted to be a warrior again when the Blight came? (

I can't find a link to these, but when you go to the Fade in Here Lies the Abyss, there are some really interesting ones about a mage and templar who both went to the Conclave. Did they meet? How did they interact?

You don't need to write about those in particular (though I would love a horror story about that Envy demon one, cough); they're just examples. Choose any codex you like!

Ooh, this is an awesome prompt, nonny. There's so much to explore in all the nooks and crannies of the game...

Now that's a really, really good prompt... *.*

That envy demon one is so freaky!

This is utter genius! Wow... such a great prompt! Truly, *any* codex entry? Maybe a slight preference for the ones that could lend themselves to a horror genre slant?

Yes, any! Whatever captures your imagination, whether it lends itself to horror or not. I will happily read all of them, I promise. ♥

Thank you nonny!
From: (Anonymous)
I hope you don't mind that I included the entry I'm basing the image on. I might do more for the other stanzas, so I just included the first one.

Saga of Tyrdda Bright-Axe, Avvar-Mother

First stanza:

Tell the tale of Tyrdda Bright-Axe, mountain maker,
spirit's bride:
Free, her people, forged in fastness, made in
mountains, hardy hide.
Wise in wisdom, calm in counsel, great in gifts her
grateful guests,
Sacrificed she did to spirits, took their teachings,
followed quests.
Bright her axe, unbreaking crystal, stirred to flame
when temper flies,
Gifted from her leaf-eared lover, laughing lady of the
Bested blades of all who tried,
Maiden, spurning all requests,
Tyrdda Bright-Axe, Dreamer's Eyes.
Avvar-Mother, of her making.

Not OP

I love this!! She looks so sly and competent. And I'm kind of in love with her nose, wow :D
From: (Anonymous)
Thank you. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)
From: (Anonymous)
Also not OP, but I really love this. The expression on her face. Just wow.
From: (Anonymous)
Thank you. I'm happy you like it.
From: (Anonymous)
Actually the OP:

Like the other people commenting, I think her expression's great, but I also really like her staff! Also, I personally think that including the stanza with the post is a good idea.
From: (Anonymous)
Thank you. I'm glad you like it. I think I'll include the stanzas for any further stuff I do for this fill as well. :)
