Young Namira Lavellan, 18 years old with fresh vallaslin and a shiny new title of First. In my head the climate in the Marches is rather mediterranean, so here she is among some manzanita trees and a scrubby environment, keeping a wary eye for shemlen, demons, and wily fennecs (one of which gave her that scar).

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

A Class Act: Chapter One


A modern high school teacher AU.

Chapter Summary: Mara Lavellan is an English teacher that is new to Skyhold High School. Skyhold is an under performing school that is in danger of being privatized and Mara is there to help. Everyone at the school is welcoming, everyone except a certain history teacher named Cullen Rutherford.

Special thanks to @thesecondsealwrites for the title, because titles are hard. 

Also on AO3.

Mara Lavellan readjusted her shirt for the umpteenth time as her shoes clacked loudly with each step as she entered Skyhold High School. Her body was a bundle of nerves, hands shaking, she could already feel herself sweating nervously. It wasn’t even 8 a.m.

It was her first day on the job at the new school. She shouldn’t be so nervous. It was going to be a day full of faculty meetings and prepping for her classes. She’d already met the administration, it was just the teachers she needed to meet.

Relax, they’ll know if you’re all keyed up, she chided herself as she pulled the heavy metal door open.

Skyhold was an older school, thirty years ago it was the newest in the area. But the district had run out of money initially and cut corners to bring down costs. The school had suffered ever since. The brick was a faded yellow brown and several letters in the lit sign didn’t work. It looked like decay and too many years of trying to get by on far too little, but it didn’t much matter to Mara. She’d worked at schools in worse shape; she was here because Skyhold was in trouble.
