So, I'm curious about who you ship beyond playable character/love interest (if anyone).

I have become ridiculously invested in Dorian/Bull ever since I first found out they hook up in game if you don't romance either of them.

I am also rather partial to Fenris/Anders, Fenris/Hawke/Anders and Nathaniel/Velanna

How about you guys? And if you want to suggest any art/fic/whatever for your pairings of choice by all means share

As per my silly icon, I'm a big fan of Hawke x Cullen. I got into the pair during DA2 and considered their development within that timeframe, but I also really like the idea of them reconnecting during Inquisition.

I really like Bethany Hawke with a lot of people, especially Isabela, Cullen, Nathaniel, and/or Alistair:
  • Pirate!Bethany and Isabela exploring the seas together? Yes, please.
  • Nathaniel or Alistair helping her acclimate to life in the Wardens is very appealing to me.
  • Cullen and Bethany developing a real deep bond (but probably never really acting on any attraction outside of maybe a forehead kiss) while in the Circle is one of my favorite things ever.

    In DAI, I like Cassandra x Josephine, Cullen x Josephine, Cullen x Bull, and Cullen x Dorian. (Do you see a pattern? :D)

    Alistair and Anora have kind of recently piqued my interest, too, after I saw them together in DAI. I like the enemies to lovers trope (and variations on it)--I think them slowly coming to respect and genuinely care about one another could be really lovely.

    Josie's so lovely! ♥̮♥ She's a good one to have a shipping pattern with. Have you come across any good fics with her and Leliana?

    There’s not a huge amount out there (or at least, I’ve not stumbled across it.)

    I like this one for the details – the first section with the delicacy of the setting and verbal sparring and Leliana not being subtle at all, blinking her eyes and plying J with macaroons.

    “Yvette told me nothing... Except that there were things she wasn’t allowed to tell. On the strictest orders.”

    “Oh, goodness.”

    “She let slip something about the two of you climbing?”

    Josephine sighs. “I assume we’re here now because you want me to-”

    “Tell me.”




    This one is based on an AU idea - what if Josie was a hidden apostate – but it’s more about the two of them, bouncing against one another pre-Conclave, and growing together through the events of the game.

    Thanks for the links! I haven't had a chance to read Charmed, but I did just read the first one--I love the back and forth between Leliana and Josie. I really like the characterization of her story-telling, too.

    I’m heavily invested in Surana/Cullen atm. It’s a ship that snuck up on me as my first DAO PT was with Tabris (also rly into Tabris/Alistair).

    My OT3 4 now and 4ever is Cullen/Samson/Loghain. I suggested the ship on a whim to [personal profile] renegadefolkhero as a writing prompt and I’ve been smitten ever since.

    I’ve also entertained Anders/Finn as a ship because they grew up together in the Circle, yet are very different people. I totally head canon that it was Anders that started calling Finn “Florian.” (I kinda imagine him as a bit of a bully actually.)

    I also really like f!Mahariel/Velanna and Solavellan.

    Oh, and Surana/Everyone, or rather half of the companions + some NPCs. Morrigan, Zevran, Leliana, Loghain, Sebastian, Samson, Merrill, Isabela, Josephine, Vivienne, Blackwall, and Harding (and a hateship w/ Solas).

    Basically? Everyone/everyone. :-P

    A few of my favorites include Alistair/Anora, Alistair/Zevran, Anders/Fenris, Anders/Nathaniel, Anders/Sebastian, Bethany/Isabela, Cassandra/Varric, Cullen/Dorian, Dagna/Sera, Dorian/Iron Bull, and Josephine/Leliana.

    For non-canon romances involving the playable characters, I'm a big fan of Cullen/F!Amell or Surana, Anders/Amell or Surana, Cousland/Nathaniel, F!Brosca/Sigrun, F!Hawke/Varric, F!Inquisitor/Harding, F!Mahariel/Velanna, and F!Trevelyan/Solas.

    But, seriously, everyone/everyone. All it takes is one good fic to convince me of the possibility of a specific 'ship. :-P

    Your list of ships interests me greatly. I'm a huge fan of Cullen/Surana and Fenris/Anders, but all of these fascinate.

    I tend to be an everyone/everyone shipper because the writer in me likes the challenge of figuring out how to tell a story about two people when their names are randomly pulled from a hat. For instance, I never end thought of Carver/Isabela but when I was challenged to write them for a rare pair exchange, an idea bit and I love this rarepair ship.

    As first ship that hooked me on the DA series was (and still is) Surana/Cullen, although I tend I ship Surana/everyone. I am a hard core fan of Hawke/Cullen (my main OTP of the series).

    Ships of interest & writer fuel (actual and potential) include:
    Greagoir/Wynne
    Jowan/Lily
    Fenris/Anders
    Isabela/Fenris/Anders
    Fenris/Sebastian
    Fenris/Danarius
    Aveline/Wesley
    Aveline/Isabela
    Donnic/Aveline/Isabela
    Hawke/Wesley (as an alternate DA2 story)
    Leandra/Malcolm
    Carver/Isabela
    Bethany/Isabela
    Merrill/Isabela
    Merrill/Cullen
    Anders/Cullen
    Alistair/Isabela
    Alistair/Cullen
    Morrigan/Alistair
    Anora/Alistair (where Alistair also has a mistress)
    Bethany/Alistair
    Bethany/Keran
    Varric/Cassandra
    Varric & Isabela writers circle night
    Plus any crack fic about Zevran/Wynne's Bosom

    I saw Carver/Merrill once way back and it's probably one of my favorite background ships. I also like Fenris/Isabela.

    I forgot to add these to my list. Both are quiet background ships but they have much potential for exploration.

    It's true, they definitely do. I haven't written them myself (yet?), but I do certainly enjoy reading them.

    Resurfacing from NaNo for a brief (sadly) moment:
    It wasn't till Trespasser that I thought on potential ship, but I *love* the idea of it (I haven't looked for fanfics that go there (see: nano), but I'd totally write some myself...eventually!):
    Trespasser *spoiler*: Sera/Dagna
