cupid gifts

elenilote:

To dear askrata, to whom I am incredibly late in delivering the promised Valentine’s gift. My intention was to make a series of small ficlets with Isabela and Merrill, pretty and fluffy and cute, all depicting a different stage in their courtship. But I have been unable to write in the last few weeks and I may never be able to write all that I planned but here is the first one anyway, I hope you like it. <3
**********************************************************************
“It’s an ancient custom, one of the few that have survived since Arlathan. I do not know the meaning of the patterns drawn except that they must always be exactly the same. The jewellery is the only thing I have left of my mother, and from her mother before her - all the way back to the beginning of our people. I…I hope it pleases you, I wanted to honour the old customs on this day…” the words came out in a rush and Merrill stopped, blushing to the tips of her pointed ears, suddenly unsure whether her betrothed would approve of such display.
“Sweet one…the patterns, the jewellery, everything about it is beautiful. You are beautiful, utterly captivating even without any adornments. But I am honoured that you would go to such lengths for me, you didn’t have to - you are perfect just in your self - but that you did…let’s enjoy them, shall we?” Isabela knelt down at the smaller woman’s feet and lifted a delicate foot in her lap, careful not to dislodge any of the jewellery. She brushed her lips gently first on one toe, then another until she had kissed each one in turn. Then she traced her fingers on the arch of the small foot and lifted her eyes up to meet Merrill’s wide-eyed gaze. ”Delicious,” Isabela smiled, her tone playful, “just like the rest of you. Now…how about we leave this on for the night and I’ll show you just how much I love them…?”

I’ve been away on a small vacation for a while and returned to find that stack of mail on my bed. Amongst the otherwise unimportant stuff, I found my Secret Valentine from wantthepharaohs! It was the cutest thing ever, with a letter from Fenris and some solid fragrances inspired by DA (and let’s not forget, CHOCOLATE).
Thanks sooooo much!!! I’m wearing my new Ghost Warrior fragrance today. I’m sorry it took me so long to post pictures!

Oh man, here’s my unbelievably late gift to alfeegi! It’s her mayhem inducing Hawke, who isn’t the biggest fan of templars.
I’m so sorry about the wait, I mean, my god it’s March now. I am the worst.
But just so you know this isn’t all of your gift! I plan to draw your Warden and your Skyrim elf soon as an apology for my ridiculous tardiness. So stay tuned. c:

Yaaaay! I received my V-day gift in the mail and it’s super cute! The flowers have two types of pins so I could either rock ‘em in my hair on or a lapel or shirt. These are super pretty :]  Thank you so much, Adriana!

A mere two weeks late… Kimmathy’s unromantic Valentine

ilikelookingatnakedmen:

Firstly, I would like to apologise - both to Kimmathy and to dragonageholidaycheer - for how late this is. Writing it was like pissing gallstones, and I’ve finally thrown up my hands and gone “FUCK IT”. 

Secondly, I would like to apologise for how unfluffy this is. My specialty is light-hearted crackfic, so hopefully this will break your heart in the appropriate manner.

The weather was Merrill’s favourite – black, wet and violent, rain pelting almost sideways against (and through) the walls of the tiny hovel. Water was pouring in through the walls and the roof, but at least the three inches of mud at her feet would keep the rats away for a little while.

Thunder boomed in time with flashes of lightning and the banging of bins and crates as they flew across the alienage square. The mess would be devastating, but it would still be better than a group of humans on a boys’ night out.

I got a package!

cptprocrastination:

Out of the gutter Tumbls srsly…

No really I got Mail! I can’t find my camera T_T but I can tell you what I got!

First off it was from my DA Valentine who’s a total sweetheart let me tell you!

In the box was…

- A silk rose with a red ribbon the cat IMMEDIATELY took off with

- Two little boxes of chocolates which were enjoyed very much. It has been DAYS without chocolate! You life saver you!

- A very cute sketch of F! Hawke & Anders looking all lovey at each other and its on my wall now where I can coo at it whenever I want.

-And a paper cut out of Widdle Grumpy Fenris who may or may not take up permanent residence on my laptop. I think I shall put him on the wall too beside my ‘shit you ought to be doing’ list.

SO

Thank you Valentine! I love it! You so made my day!
