Disclaimer: Much as I love these characters, I do not own them. They belong to all the geniuses over at Bioware, may they always continue to make games that touch my heart.
Summary: She's wanted it for so long, but it has to be on his terms. She just never expected it to feel like this.
A/N 1: I was not satisfied with the setup to the first time that my f!Hawke and Fenris were together - it was far too abrupt, and didn't seem to flow with the steady respect that existed between the characters before and after. And so my plotbunny jumped in and made...adjustments :) This incorporates more into their first kiss, and fills in the "fade to black" before we find Hawke waking up on the bed later in the night.
A/N 2: For those of you on my friends' list who follow me for my Star Trek - I would highly recommend reading this if you're interested in het. I intentionally made it so that you don't have to know what's happening in the game to enjoy the fic. All you really need to know is that Fenris is broken, and bleeding, and angry (kinks of mine? OH YES!!!!).
Oh. And he looks like THIS:
Bestill my beating heart XD
A/N 3: Apparently my plotbunny decided that what was supposed to be a short one-shot was going to develop into a SERIES of one shots. Each of them is stand alone, and can be read in any order. There are at least more tentatively in the works, but I have no idea where this is headed or why XD
