Speed painting is my new favorite way to de-stress. 



And a die-hard romantic.

Not that happy with this one. Oh well.


Cassandra’s letter, with some excellent reading material

Viscount Tethras takes a day.

It is quite unusual, and people take notice. He rises early, armed with a sheaf of notes, and heads towards the markets. He stops at every smithy along the way – good smiths, some of the best from the Davri workshops that came to aid his city when they needed laborers – and gives each of them a single task. He stays to explain what he can, working with each carefully before moving to the next.

Bran asks, because it is Bran’s job to ask, and Varric explains the plan – to create a new repeating crossbow, partially based on the old designs but with significant improvements learned from his time in the Inquisition. He smiles, outlining his reasons for the individual tasks – if no single smith sees the full design, no single smith can recreate it, and the competition was fierce in the city but alliances could be made. The Viscount pays them well for it, which buys him a protected design. And, of course, the last part was being made half the world away, just to be on the safe side.

It takes a month for the pieces to arrive at his desk, and another week to assemble, but the day it is finished he writes a letter to his love – halfway across the world, rebuilding her order in peace – and puts the crossbow to good use against bandits on the road into his city. The weapon is good, striking true, and he goes out every day for a fortnight to defend his people and their lands. Every day for a fortnight, the Viscount protects his flock.

Until a lone rider appears, and he smiles as the Seeker swings down from her horse to regard him and his weapon.

“That,” she says finally, “is new.”

“Yes it is. Do you like it? Designed her myself.”

“She certainly seems formidable.” She smiles, a finger trailing over the black lacquer. “What happened to -”

“The past,” he says firmly. “This is the future. My future.”

“I see.”

“Go on, ask.” He grins. “I know you want to.”

She laughs. “Fine. What is her name?”

He strokes the handle lovingly. “Cassandra,” he murmurs.

She raises an eyebrow. “Yes?”

“No. Cassandra,” he stresses, and she stills, the surprise all over her face.

“Oh,” she breathes, and then she laughs. “Oh, Varric.”

“Like I said. My future – if you’ll have me.”

It is hardly the most conventional proposal, but then the Viscount and his Seeker were hardly conventional people.

The secret to her superior guard is that enemy attacks cannot get through the extra layers of middle names.
