“finding a baby and accidentally keeping it” is one of my very favorite tropes

Luca sounds intriguing. I would love to hear more! :-) What was he like growing up? What sort of childhood do you envision for a Fenhawke child? (’cause my own Fenhawke children aren’t past the age of 5 yet and I’ve not thought much about where they go from there…)


oh my goodness I dont think you’re prepared for this conversation

My main AU for him is whence he’s inquisitor. It doesnt make any sense with timelines, but there it is. For his canon, however, he’s still just a wee bab when his mother goes off to Skyhold.

For this reason, I see him being raised more by Fenris rather than Aura. He is in every way his father’s son; from fighting style, to sense of humor, to they way they both have a crooked little smirk.

Growing up, he hardly ever cried. Parent would go to the crib to check if he was awake in the morning, and he’d be lying there, looking up at them with wide eyes and a smile, waiting. He has always been rather quiet, and always held on too tightly. To his mother’s hair or his father’s hand, to the familial bond he shared with his parent’s friends and family. It would be his downfall, however; one by one, they all leave him. They go off to fight or just to live, and he is left with no one.

It is this that brings forth the tragedy of one Luca Hawke. He’s beautiful and charming and smiles easily; but he is cunning and swift, and trusts no one. He cares, and wants to help those he can; but he doesnt believe that loving someone is worth it.

But that’s later in his life. Thinking about that brings me nothing but heartache so lets go back to his childhood, shall we?

He’s absolutely horrendously spoiled by his family. Auntie Isabela brings him gold jewelry that he cant wear yet, and he’s gotten used to Merrill braiding his hair for him. Of his parents, Fenris is the most protective, I think. His concern is obvious; always watching his son closely for any sort of harm. Aura laughs and kisses his cheek, telling him not to worry so much; he’s the son of a wolf and a hawk, with mountains of love and protection surrounding him. Nothing will happen to him, not if she has anything to say about it.

Oh I love the idea of him being Inquisitor! (I’m following a fic of a similar concept, Fenhawke daughter as teenaged Inquisitor, by @dammithawke and – timelines or no – it is a concept so full of potential.) Love the spoiling by family/friends too! I mean after all, as close and intense as this found family of Hawke’s is, they’d be so excited about BABY Hawkes being added to the family, of course the kid’s going to be delightfully spoiled.



I got it bad for Papa Fen, and I have no one to blame but @mnemosyneawrites

Everyone please go check out their blog and READ THIS FIC
I need the next chapter ASAP. 

Omg, I’m crying, it’s so precious :3

Pure fluff, and vocabulary.

“P..p…pa…” The boy’s breath stirred his dark hair away from his eyes as each repetition of the syllable grew more forceful with his frustration. Lisbet Hawke, quietly dusting the shelves in the library so she could listen in on the lesson (and trying to hide from Fenris’ view the tiny spark of lightning magic she was using to attract the dust), held back a chuckle when her son glanced up at his father with a scowl that did as much to proclaim his parentage as did his green eyes. Fenris, unmoved by his son’s glowering criticism, nudged him back toward the book. “Go on. You know the letters. Sound out the rest of the word.”

Malcolm let out one more great huff before returning his attention to the puzzling word. “Pa…ra…this is a D…do…but Da, I do not know this last one.”

Fenris smiled slightly. “Then clearly we must work more on the end of the alphabet. That is an X, Malcolm. You pronounce it as K and S, together.”

“If it is K and S,” protested the child, “why do we not just write K and S? Why do we need so many letters?”

Hawke did not entirely stifle her laugh at the boy’s affronted air. Fenris arched an eyebrow in her direction before continuing. “If it were a K and an S, you could always take one of them away. An X is…always together. You cannot separate it into two.” Malcolm’s narrowed eyes suggested he did not approve of inseparable letters, so Fenris hastily added, “Besides, X is a Tevene letter originally. That means this word was borrowed from Tevene, so it retains its spelling.”

This got Malcolm’s attention, hungry as he always was to learn more of his father’s storied past in foreign lands, all the more so given Fenris’ reticence on the subject. Seeing the light of attempted digression in the boy’s eyes, Fenris pointed to the next sentence. “Go on, then.”

“But Da,” said Malcolm, pointing back to the word with its stubborn X, “what does this word mean? ‘Para…dox’? It’s no use reading it if I don’t know what it means!”

“True enough,” Fenris nodded, eyes narrowed as he considered a definition. “A paradox is…”

“Is your Da,” Hawke put in, glancing their way from the shelves. She smiled when her menfolk looked up at her with identically puzzled expressions, Malcolm’s nose wrinkling just as Fenris’ did.

FenHawke Question of the Day: Sunday, January 31


What’s the status of your Fenris & Hawke post game (DA2 or DAI)? Where do you hope they eventually end up?

I may have written a small series of fic about this very question. A summary (spoilers if you’ve not read Hawkquisition yet):

  • Lisbet Hawke became Viscount and stepped down, as is mentioned in DAI, when the templars there started using red lyrium and getting paranoid.
  • After that she and Fenris were investigating the red lyrium and also hunting slavers till he got injured and she left him behind to answer Varric’s letter.
  • Hawke survives Adamant. Fenris catches up with her on the way to Weisshaupt.
  • Weisshaupt is boring and Lisbet is pregnant, so they return to Skyhold.
  • They’re sort of like extra members of the Inquisition now, whose adventures (and birth of their firstborn, Malcolm,) can be read in the rest of my stories so I won’t spoil any more! (the above was basically Part 1 of the series.)
  • After Warriors Such As they’ll return to Kirkwall with Varric, to help him out when he ends up being viscount. Also, baby Mara will be born there soon…
  • They might return to the Inquisition for a Trespasser-timeline story; at least that’s what I’m currently thinking about for part 5 of Hawkquisition. 🙂
  • But in the end, they’re raising kids in Kirkwall with Metis’ help, probably with a reconciled Varania visiting occasionally, and with Aunt Merrill married to Carver.
  • In other words, my hope for them is family. The theme and mission statement of my fic series seems to have turned out to be “Give Fenris all the family” and, well, two kids and one dad and eventually one sister later…
