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.

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: 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.

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

Why This Must Be Read: Set post-movie, this is a series where Mako becomes Herc's right hand woman as he navigates the responsibilities involved with being Marshal. I love the slow burn of their relationship and Herc's struggle to reconcile his feelings against his friendship with Stacker and the fact that he's known her since she was a little girl.

Why This Must Be Read: I do not exaggerate when I say that after reading this story, I have been Changed as a Person. It's an Academy-era story where Spock and Uhura fake being in a relationship because the alien ambassador Spock is negotiating with for materials for the Enterprise refuses to work with anyone who isn't in a relationship. And this story is. everything. EVERYTHINGGGGG. Everything you could ever want out of a fake dating story!! 300K WORTH OF GLORIOUS SLOW BURN AND IT IS SO GOOOOOOOOD. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Why This Must Be Read: The first story in this series was recced on this community, but it has since expanded to include 2 more sequels. If you haven't read the story before, this is a modern AU where Furiosa is a mechanic and helps run a shelter for women escaping domestic violence and Max is a former cop turned barista. In the sequels, Max's past comes back to haunt him, with consequences for Furiosa given their relationship with one another. A coffee shop AU for this fandom shouldn't work as well as it does, but....it TOTALLY does. A fantastic read.

Fandom: Deadpool
Pairing: Vanessa Carlysle/Wade Wilson

Why This Must Be Read: Vanessa and Wade have a Real Adult Conversation post-movie. This was the epilogue I needed, with the two of them really sitting down and talking about the consequences of Wade leaving the way he did. The character voices are spot on, the fourth wall jokes are all there, as well as so many dick jokes because Wade. In short, it's got everything you would need in a Deadpool fic.

Mods, I need a fandom tag for Deadpool. I also need pairing tags for Mako Mori/Hercules Hansen, Gaila/Hikaru Sulu, and Vanessa Carlysle/Wade Wilson.
