Why This Must Be Read: I love the Isabela/Fenris romance in the games. This was sensual and lovely and I enjoyed the journey from friends with benefits to something more.

Why This Must Be Read: Isabela's past catches up with her and she decides to deal with it once and for all. Fenris comes with her. I love this look into Isabela's backstory, the way the author brings Rivain to life, and I especially love the slow burn of Fenris and Isabela's romance.

Why This Must Be Read: I adore this story. Isabela is so sensitive to Fenris' uncertainty and the scars he carries from his time as a slave, when he was never allowed to have a choice or voice his consent. I love the relationship they build, the heat between them, the genuine affection, the love they both feel but can't express but which is understood. Just lovely.

Why This Must Be Read: Fenris falls for Isabela but he knows she doesn't exactly believe in long-term commitment. The only thing he knows to keep her around is to have sex with her as often as possible, but how long can he keep his feelings under wraps? Ugh, I am such a sucker for pining, especially when it turns out that pining is completely requited even if the character is convinced it isn't.


Pairing: Merrill/Carver Hawke

Why This Must Be Read: Merrill sees that Carver is lonely and decides that he needs a pet. So she gets him a chicken. This is the most STINKING adorable story, I love it so much. Carver is such a grumpypants but also SUCH a marshmallow for Merrill and he doesn't have the heart to tell her how much he doesn't want a chicken for a pet. Feathers the chicken, scourge of lizards everywhere, is AMAZING. I love how she and Carver start off as mortal enemies but despite themselves, come to appreciate each other.

Why This Must Be Read: Basically everything about this ship is the cutest and every fic about them is the cutest. Merrill is determined to seduce Carver with her worldly sophistication!!! Only...she isn't very worldly or sophisticated and her schemes to get his attention never turn out the way she plans. Little does she know Carver's spinning up his own schemes. SO CUTE. ESPECIALLY THE END. THE VERY CUTEST.

Why This Must Be Read: Carver is getting tired of having to lie low to avoid the False Calling, and the letters from Merrill have stopped. And then she surprises him with a visit and some news. SOB, these babies are so awkward and so cute and this story is so awkward and so cute.

Why This Must Be Read: Oh Carver. He really is such a sourpuss and so sensitive after living so long in his brother's shadow and he can be such an ass. He lashes out at Merrill, the person who least deserves it, but luckily for him, is the most forgiving. They really are so sweet together and this story shows why they work so well. Merrill sees him, when he's spend his whole life being overlooked, and Carver never thinks she's silly or naive.

Why This Must Be Read: Carver is told all templars need to switch over to red lyrium. He asks Merrill for help in making it look as though he's taking red lyrium by mixing herbs into regular lyrium. Carver is clearly smitten, but Merrill is a little harder to read.

Why This Must Be Read: Carver meditates on the duality of Merrill. Also he is smitten. THE MOST SMITTEN. And so confused over whether Merrill can tell that he is THE MOST SMITTEN. Cute cute cute.
