    Summary

    A series of drabbles based on the words in this article: http://bigthink.com/ideas/41152?page=all Words in various other languages for love and relationships that have no equivalent word in the English language. The first two happened to be about Varric, and then I realized that they ALL had to be about Varric.

    Varric, because he is the writer, the storyteller, the wordsmith. He understands words, and what they mean, and how sometimes there is no word for what you want to say in any of the languages that you know, so you tell a lie instead, something that comes close, something that at least approaches what you need it to be …

    Of course these are about Varric.

    Summary

    “Does it ever get too heavy for you, Lan Zhan?”

    Lan Zhan’s steps slow for a moment, and then stop. He turns to face Wei Ying on the path, his hands folded behind his back. There is the slightest crease between his eyebrows. A bird of prey calls, sharp talons in the sky above them.

    “Some of what you carry,” Lan Zhan asks, his voice quiet. Almost hesitant. “Can you put it down?”
