Dragon Age: Inquisition, 6 recs, Inquisitor/The Iron Bull & Inquisitor/Cullen

Dragon Age is another of those fandoms that I got into because I read a fic once and now all of a sudden I Have A Problem And It Is Consuming My Life. Actually, this is basically my entire relationship with Bioware games. I've never played any of the games and have no desire at all to do so, but I've read SO MUCH FIC and watched all the Romance supercuts on Youtube and now, once again, you all reap the benefits of my fannish magpie tendencies.

Fandom: Dragon Age: Inquisition
Pairing: Inquisitor/The Iron Bull

Why This Must Be Read: The fic that sucked me into this fandom. I was trawling AO3 for fic for a specific trope, as I do, and this was one of the fics that came up. I recognized the fandom and characters from a suuuuper sexy fanart that came up on my dash, read it, and basically DIED from how hot it was. It's a Modern AU where magic is still a Thing, which makes it a little more accessible for non-fans (not that being unfamiliar with a fandom/source has ever stopped me from reading a fic, but if that's a thing you worry about, this fic is a good place to start!).

Why This Must Be Read: So the thing about romancing the Iron Bull is that canonically he's a Dom and BDSM themes are always going to be a part of your relationship dynamic. This is one of my favorite series about negotiating the terms of their relationship, and it's incredibly hot with Bull constantly checking in to make sure she's enjoying it and that he has her active consent, which is such a Thing for me.

Why This Must Be Read: My last rec for this pairing is a kinkmeme fill where the Inquisitor is anorgasmic (meaning she has never had an orgasm and nothing she has tried has worked for her) and Bull makes it his mission to help her achieve orgasm, because if she's not having fun, he's not having fun. This was sexy and funny, and I love how--out of all the things they attempted--the orgasm finally happened.


Pairing: Inquisitor/Cullen Rutherford

Why This Must Be Read: This is an incredibly epic read that is told entirely in epistolary (letter--and diaries!) format, which is impressive. The Inquisitor in this story is a mage, which creates an interesting dynamic between her and Cullen, given this universe's complicated relationship with mages and Cullen's own personal prejudice against them. If you enjoy the enemies-to-friends-to-lovers trope, this is the story for you! There's also an equally epic WIP sequel to this story here.

Why This Must Be Read: Josephine decides to throw an Orlesian-style masquerade ball and convinces the Inquisitor to let her hair down and go to this ball in disguise. While there, she finds a man she develops an instant connection with and they engage in an anonymous fling over the course of the festival. To her surprise, she finds herself falling deeper than she expected, but she knows, given her position, that a relationship between them could never be... Little does she know that Cullen had the same idea she did. If you enjoy Secret Identity/Identity Kink tropes, this is the story for you! There's also a WIP sequel to this story which is from Cullen's POV here!

Why This Must Be Read: This is one of my favorite Inquisitors ever. Katria is a sarcastic, prickly loner who never EVER wanted to be the leader of ANYTHING, but here she is, the Chosen One, who's responsible for leading this campaign, uniting the various warring factions in the alliance, and saving the world. This is an epic read with a nice slow burn romance and I really enjoyed the journey Katria takes. Again, there's a WIP sequel to this story here.


Mods, I need pairing tags for Inquisitor/Iron Bull and Inquisitor/Cullen Rutherford.
