A Class Act: Chapter Three


A high school teacher AU. 

Chapter Summary: 

Teachers are trying to enjoy an evening at the local bar, but the threat of the school closing isn’t far from anyone’s mind. Mara and Cullen have a few more run ins and it’s all so awkward.

Also on AO3!

Cullen went to The Herald’s Rest exactly two times a year. The first Friday of the school year and the last day of school. He stayed long enough to have a drink, play a game of pool with Dorian and Varric, say hello to everyone, and then he left. It wasn’t that he didn’t want to spend time with his coworkers, but he enjoyed being alone too.

Teaching was a career that required a lot of energy and the ability to be socially “on” all the time. He liked that he could go home and just be alone in the quiet with a good book and maybe a movie. Dorian often chastised him for being too introverted and would drag him out to social gatherings. Cullen didn’t mind it, it just wasn’t something he sought out himself.  

That night as he walked into The Herald’s Rest he wondered if Mara would make an appearance. He’d been meaning to talk to her, to say something, anything after the fiasco in the copy room. He readjusted his carefully rolled sleeves as he wandered over to the group.

Varric was in the middle of telling a story to Leliana, Josephine, and Cassandra when he walked over, he took a quick surveying glance around the room, telling himself he wasn’t looking for anyone in particular. The bar wasn’t anything fancy. Homely was probably a good way to describe it. Most of the interior was a dark wood color, the pieces of it still fighting to show under decades worth of town sports memorabilia. The place was a local favorite. Varric always complained that it filled up to bursting after every football and basketball game, but tonight was just a regular Friday night.

“Curly! You made it!” Varric called as Cullen approached.

Cassandra looked over, looking a little relieved he was there, “Ah good. I was worried I might be stuck listening to him all night.”

“I know you enjoy my stories Cassandra, as much as you pretend not to,” Varric rolled his eyes.

A Class Act: Chapter Two



A high school teacher AU. 

Chapter Summary: Another day of meetings and then school begins. 

Also on AO3. 

Cullen sipped at his coffee as he walked down the hallway to the cafeteria. He’d been at the school for a long while before the meeting was actually set to begin. He had worked in his classroom, setting up lesson plans, revising his syllabus, and creating assignments. He liked to be at there in the early morning hours, when the school was quiet. Some thought it creepy, being alone in the dark, empty school, but he found comfort in the familiarity.

Skyhold had been his second home these last five years. He hadn’t ever pictured himself as a teacher, and found himself a little surprised how much he loved it. Cullen was a planner, liked to anticipate what would happen next. His lessons were planned at least a week in advance, copies already made, he liked the predictability of it all. It was a welcome change from what his life had been before.

Cullen tried not to think too much on the before. He’d carefully separated each piece of his life against the before and the after in an effort to move beyond it all. He was good with routine, his life had never been better. He came to school at about seven every day and left around four, in the evenings he would work out and then make dinner and then he would read or catch up on the few shows he bothered to follow. Monotony was good, monotony meant that nothing bad would happen. Never again.

I love how Cullen is just kinda nervous around Mara bit than she totally thinks that he has a good issue with her. If that’s not relatable, I don’t know what is!

And the lunch banter was great. Please tell me that happens irl? Haha

DAI Drabble: Lines


Because there is never a bad time for Cullen fluff, is there?

The first time she notices, they’re gone again before she is even sure she saw anything.

The second time, she looks more closely until Cullen asks if there is something offensive on his face. She tells him, because why wouldn’t she? At first he is abashed–he does not mind getting on in years, but worries that the changes might bother her. Of course they don’t, she reassures him, it is his face and she loves it the way it is. In any case, it was probably just a trick of the light.

But it wasn’t, and she knows what she has seen: two faint lines coming from the corner of each eye that weren’t there before. Over the next few days, she pays better attention–more subtly, too–until she realises: they are the lines that form only in those private moments when Cullen smiles at her.

She does not mention them again, keeps them as her sweet little secret. But as the weeks and months go by, she watches them grow deeper ever so slightly, and she nourishes them with her smiles and laughter and kisses whenever she can.

It may not be an accomplishment that Varric would think to write about. But in all the uncertainty and upheaval and struggle to make the right decisions, the knowledge that she is slowly carving lines of happiness into her lover’s face sometimes feels like the most precious triumph of all.



I needed a DA2 version. ^_^

Need this again today. Just need to push through the next scene. “They fight” is just not cutting it.
