Exit Light (77427 words) by Dragonflies_and_Katydids
Chapters: 22/22
Fandom: Dragon Age - All Media Types, Dragon Age: Inquisition
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Iron Bull/Cullen Rutherford, Dorian Pavus/Cullen Rutherford, Iron Bull/Dorian Pavus/Cullen Rutherford, Iron Bull/Dorian Pavus
Characters: Cullen Rutherford, Iron Bull, Dorian Pavus, Cassandra Pentaghast, Cremisius "Krem" Aclassi, various OCs, Cole (Dragon Age)
Additional Tags: Angst, Addiction, Depression, Suicidal Thoughts, D/s, Threesome - M/M/M, Dominance & Submission, Mildly Dubious Consent, Suicide Attempt, POV Cullen Rutherford, Alcohol Abuse/Alcoholism, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder - PTSD
Series: Part 1 of Dawn
Summary: Cullen struggles with his lyrium addiction. Some days are better than others. Or (if you prefer a silly summary for a not-so-silly fic): In which Cullen is suicidally depressed, Dorian is a high-functioning alcoholic, and Bull just wants them both to be happy, except when he wants to crack their heads together for being emotionally stunted idiots. Spoilers galore, particularly for Cullen's, Dorian's, and Bull's personal quests.

Why I loved this: Oh man if you want a heartbreaking, yet amazingly perfect and ultimately hopeful Cullen-has-trauma-can't-deal-but-gets-there-with-Bull-and-Dorian fic this is for you. I feel like this is a story that understands depression (pay attention to the tags, this is not a fluffy fic). Cullen's head is not a nice place and the focus of the story is him and his ultimate survival through a really dark period that begins when he quits lyrium. Starting a relationship with Iron Bull is the beginning, and it enfolds Dorian, who's a mess of issues, and I just really love how this story evolved and they all get through it.

Let's get spooky. Or fluffy! Or both at once, that works too.

I hope some of the prompts here are inspiring. Take what works and discard what doesn't, and create what you're inspired to create. And for reference, on AO3 I'm [archiveofourown.org profile] Etnoe.

If something isn't specified as a trick or a treat, feel free to interpret either way. And feel free to get creepy/gross/gory in tricks, at that, as long as my DNWs are avoided.

I'm reading a book!

I always get so excited when I can actually make a Wednesday book reading post. I mean, it's not that I'm not reading constantly, just that I'm not reading books constantly.

Anyway. I'm reading Blood, Sweat, and Pixels by Jason Schreier which is non-fiction about the video game industry, and just how games get made. It goes in depth into the development of ten games, each structured to highlight an aspect of the industry and what made getting that particular game to market so fucking complicated. One of them is Dragon Age Inquisition, which is why I bought it, but the whole thing has been fascinating so far. Also makes me appreciative that I'm not in the gaming industry where there seems to be zero work/life balance.

I got a [community profile] ladiesbingo card a week ago and since I've been a little frazzled lately, I kept forgetting to post it. ^^;;

I'm still struggling to write and I haven't even been trying to draw but the want is there. I've just been lazy. And playing so much Skyrim omg I need to pull my ass away from it.

Because I hate myself*, I'm actually contemplating a kidfic bunny right now, and I need help thinking of the tropes to organize it around. So for kids in the 8-14 age range, I've got

-getting in trouble for getting in a fight
-needing help with homework
-nightmares
-sneaking out/getting caught sneaking out
-sibling fight
-getting lost
-too big for thing but doesn't want to be too big for thing
-...

I'm blanking.

Obvs. the story is not going to be non-stop tropes, but I'm looking for ideas to get me started.

*ETA: I don't actually hate myself. I just have too many projects I'm not working on and I really shouldn't start something but I really wanna.
