    Summary

    Dorian had scarcely read through the first chapter when a shuffle of footsteps stopped outside his nook. He glanced up, a little warily, then set the book down on his lap in surprise: it was General Cullen, of all people, still in his military uniform, the khaki pressed to razor edges, the collar blood red against his throat, the gold star of his rank bright and high over his sleeves.

    “General,” Dorian greeted Cullen, when Cullen seemed to hesitate. Hells, but the man was ridiculously handsome, more so than Dorian had expected: it wasn’t just the uniform, at that - there was something deliciously attractive about a gorgeous man who was utterly unaware that he was gorgeous. “Something the matter?”

    Summary

    Painting is not about replicating the world; it’s about interpreting and improving on it, showing something you see.

     

     

    Each time Markus grabs hold of a brush, his every stroke, every application of pressure on the canvas, every flick of his wrist are calculated, precise; yet he doesn’t aim for what’s perfect, but for what’s real.

    And every time he closes his eyes, a loud, irrevocable truth always manifests itself in strong waves, overwhelming his systems—the entirety of a deep blue ocean held captive in a pair of beautiful eyes, the vibrant gold of the sun caught in the crown of rich blond hair—

    Summary

    Bull's pretty sure getting held captive by blood mages wasn't supposed to involve getting to know the guy in the other cell. Promising to get Dorian out of there was easy; the hard part was keeping Dorian alive.

    For the Adoribull Minibang 2016.

    Summary

    Dorian used to have dreams about this. The Qunari were the stuff of nightmares, and then of the kind of stories teenagers told each other to shock and scandalise, and then of rumour and speculation. While the image of strong, brute-ish qunari holding him down and ravishing him quite quickly became a staple of his fantasies, being collared and silenced remained a nightmare.

    It hurts more than he imagined.
