Future DAHC Exchanges!

It seems that overwhelmingly people are interested in another exchange sometime this year before Christmas.  A lot of people mentioned something mid-year so maybe a Summerday themed exchanged sometime in June?   We’ll talk about it again as it gets closer to planning something like that.  

The wrap-up survey is still open if you haven’t commented on this year and would like to, or have suggestions for next year.  

Thank you everyone!  <3


DAHC 2013 - Wrap-up Survey →

dragonageholidaycheer:

Hello!  Santa Flemeth would like to ask all of you to answer one last survey for this exchange.  I’d like to hear from you all about how you think this year’s exchange went and what you might like to see in the future.  It should only take a minute or two (unless you have a lot to get off your chest), I’m not asking for any names or email addresses, all anonymous.  

If you want to discuss anything specific, you can always email us at dragonagesecretsanta@gmail.com.  

Thank you!  <3

Reblogging for the night crowd.  Santa Flemeth would really like to hear from you both positive and less positive… constructive and negative comments if you have them to give.

To thedivinemissema, from rsek
She mentioned several things including her own fic (which I really enjoyed perusing, btw) that sounded really cute to draw and I had trouble deciding on one! But eventually something around F!Brosca x Zevran  - which I hadn&#8217;t even really thought about before but THANKS FOR THE NEW SHIP :D) clicked for me and I painted these two cuties. Happy belated holidays!
Oh, and thedivinemissema - if you want the hi-resolution version and/or some desktop or mobile wallpaper made from this, please let me know the details and I can get some to you! View Larger

To rustedchild, from rihouston
I went with her second request of Anders and Sebastian meeting in more youthful and carefree days at the Pearl. I can just imagine the two of them sitting at a table and trading stories trying to outdo the other one. I am sorry this is so late, but I was drawng this traditionally when I became ill with pnemonia and my two young ones became ill shortly after me with flu and ear/sinus infections. I drew this beginning of December and finished it off the lines about the time I found out I was infectious. Sorry for the delay, but my scanner and computer also seem to not be cooperating with me. =/

To fontscosplay from MireliAmbar: Mabari Daze

Here’s a Fenris fic. This comes directly from you saying you thought Fenris seemed lonely in his mansion all by himself. Hawke, Merrill and Isabela thought that too!  And I might be tempted to continue this fanfic, Ariadne Hawke and Fenris spoke so loudly to me. Enjoy :).

 ——-

Mabari Daze

It was the knock on the door that first prepared Fenris. Alert to any danger, he sat perfectly still in his chair but when there were no footsteps, loud or muffled, Fenris put his book and reader down on the table. Ariadne Hawke had been trying to teach him to read. Fenris was starting to recognise letters and words but it felt a slow process and the heavy book had bounced off the wall in frustration more than once. 

“Yes?” Fenris’s voice growled, echoing in the empty hallway as he made his way down the dusty stairs. Feeling faintly ridiculous at the way the echo caused him to shiver slightly, his attention was caught by a small whimpering noise coming from a wooden box close to the front door.

Every third or fourth month, when the situation became what the guildmaster called ‘die-r’, Zevran would visit the Chantry.  All the humans fawned over him when he came, and the dirtier he was the more they loved him, every soft-robed woman among them.  Zevran would eat their thin soup, blink his wet eyes at them.  And then, when they turned around, he would slip the spoon into his pocket along with the salt and pepper and anything else that fell within the short reach of his hands.

Though full of countless little things to steal, the Chantry was never locked.  He found this foolishness fascinating.  Nothing worth stealing in Antiva came without a guard or a lock.  At the very least a trap.  Over the course of a year he’d pilfered a set of kitchen knives, copper plates with worn etchings on the edges, brass door knobs, and cabinet fittings.

Only the collection box boasted a lock and remained, literally, out of his reach. Like most elven children, even at the age of eight he wasn’t tall enough to reach it, or strong enough to drag a pew over to stand on.

A guild orphan’s only vow was to bring back something, anything, of value, or to not come back at all.  On the hundredth occasion of such threats, padding softly through the Chantry again, Zevran found a tall girl sneaking through the upper hall.  She’d already stolen everything he’d had his eye on, and was dragging a heavy sack across the curved apse balcony.  Zevran watched her, silhouetted against the colored glass window, where the blonde lady in flames looked up instead of down at the people.

He stepped out of the shadows.  The floor creaked.  The girl whipped her head around, dark, dirty hair sliding over her brown shoulders.  Zevran froze.

“You are…”  He was going to say bold, or maybe pretty.  She put her free hand over a dagger at her waist.

“Leaving.  With all this.”  She showed him her bulging sack and grinned.   “Sorry, poppet, you weren’t quick enough today.”

Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays: DAHC 2013

Hello, and happy holidays to all my little elves!

We are down to the last few gifts, some of you are waiting on gifts to arrive in the mail, but I think (hopefully) that you all at least know where your gift is, if it’s in transit.  With the work of some AMAZING pinch hitters, I believe that everyone who signed up IS getting a gift this year (and almost everyone should have their gift or maybe a picture of it).

If you haven’t yet seen your gift, please email Santa Flemeth?  I’m pretty sure that if you haven’t seen a gift yet (or heard personally from your gifter), I can at least tell you where your gift is and maybe even when you can expect to see it.

I want to thank everyone for their hard work on making their gifts and getting them in (or out, as the case may be) in a timely manner.

There are a few small things I’ll want to discuss in a day or two, but in the meantime, enjoy the last few gifts to go out as they show up.  If you have questions or comments, or want to talk to Santa Flemeth — please email dragonagesecretsanta@gmail.com.
