Andaran atish'an! I thought it might be fun to do a lighter post on something fun that always occurs to me when playing Dragon Age: Inquisition, both during the initial period at Haven, as well as later on at Skyhold.
In a nutshell, where does everyone sleep?
And please note: I've got hours and hours of screenshots here, and encompassing several of my Inkies (not just my canon little one), so don't let that throw you. Also, as I'll note below, I was initially inspired for this idea by a post by The Emerald Halla, so it was their idea first!
Sleeping Arrangements at Haven
Please note that I was inspired to research this by a wonderful post by The Emerald Halla. I just took the idea and tried to expand it a bit, so thank you Emerald Halla!
The little cabin where the Inky wakes up is also, not surprisingly, their home while Haven is headquarters. For those of us who love headcanons or who write fanfiction, it's so much fun to explore every little detail here. Obviously, they have taken over someone else's hut here. Whose was it? It's someone somewhat high up, because it's a hut and not a tent, and they are part of Leliana's raven messaging network.
Cullen's tent appears to be the one with a drape of fabric with the Inquisition logo on top, very close to where he hangs out and watches the soldiers. It's slightly off by itself. It makes sense to me that Cullen would be out here just steps away from his troops and where they practice.
There's a big, handsome room in the Chantry with three beds in it, one of which has the Chant of Light on the bedcovers (as PuppyPopcornPizza surmised over on The Emerald Halla's original post, I'd agree that it is very likely Cassandra's).
As she does at Skyhold, even early on here at Haven, Viv captures a picturesque and rather opulent space for herself in the left side of the Chantry. Yet here, there is no sign of a bed. So where does Viv sleep at Haven? Inquiring minds!
Sola's small cabin is precisely behind where he stands for conversations with the Inquisitor. Again, it's interesting to remember that this hut is, again, filled with items that are not Solas's (for the most part). He is almost as newly arrived to the Inquisition as the Inquisitor is, themselves.
Dorian has a small hut similar to Solas's, directly opposite him, with Adan's potionmaking quarters between. Dorian can be found lounging at the right-hand exterior quarter.
Blackwall's quarters are implied to be just to the right of where he can be found next to the forge area at Haven. There's a hut that's right up against the stables there, with two beds in it!
It's pretty obvious that Varric's tent is probably the one directly behind him at his campsite.
If he appears at Haven in your playthrough, Cole seems most likely to have one of the tents opposite Varric's, near where he can be found for conversation.
Iron Bull's tent at Haven is refreshingly obvious, since it's got to be the one directly behind him. Since Krem can be found only a few steps away, it's certainly likely that he and Krem may share the tent, although I would imagine this might get a little awkward during Bull's many romantic conquests... or maybe they just go find a place? Because in the overheard banter about his night with the Chantry sister, she seeks him out, then leaves at the end of the night. Hmmm...
It's no surprise that, after her secretive life in which I imagine that she's constantly on the move in running the Red Jennies, Sera loves to plant roots in taverns, so it makes total sense to me that she's found there not only at Skyhold, but in Haven as well. We don't see a room, but she's got one here somewhere.
Sleeping Arrangements at Skyhold
This is where things get interesting, because the number of visible beds dwindles rather alarmingly at Skyhold proper, although of course there is also that huge external main campsite we can see from the battlements for housing all the other main troops and Inquisition members. Still, it's fun to try to hazard where they all sleep, so here goes!
Well, this is one bedroom we can certainly identify, and those quarters are magnificent, and found all the way down the hall at Skyhold, with the entrance to the left. On the down side: ALL THOSE STAIRS. Seriously, people, the Inquisitor must have the most magnificent hindquarters in all of Thedas. No wonder so many companions are panting for a date!
Meanwhile: What makes this more interesting for me is that I think it's also where Solas slept, once upon a time. There are secrets in those paintings, people!
Solas is easy to find, in the flawless and beautiful little glowing circle of the ground floor of the Skyhold Rotunda. While I still find it intriguing that the master of the Fade doesn't have a visible BED, he does have a beautiful golden couch.
But I still say that's a lousy bedroom for a Dreamer, and sometimes I really suspect he's got an invisible or hidden bedroom somewhere we simply don't see. I mean, I know Solas is abstemious, and he does talk about sleeping in all sorts of odd and wild places in the dialogues at Haven, BUT... would Solas really sleep comfortably in the open space of the Rotunda, in open view of two overlooking floors above (plus those who use those side stairs and exit through his room to the main Skyhold Great Hall? I don't think so.
Cullen's bedroom is located directly up the ladder from his office, which is most easily accessible via a corridor along the battlements that goes directly from the back of Solas's Rotunda to his door. His bedroom is sort of absent-mindedly messy and charming, complete with hole in the roof.
Note: Huge, huge thanks to the wonderful @Tardisfeathers ("The Dread Potato") for the following screenshots, since I need to do a reinstall of Inquisition, and couldn't grab them! Tardisfeathers, you are fantastic.
At Skyhold, Viv has, not surprisingly, picked out a charming and sumptuous alcove on the second level, just around the corner from the Rotunda library. Her area includes a beautiful sleigh bed, so we know that this is where she likely sleeps.
Blackwall can always be found over by the Skyhold stables, and he has a pallet spread over some hay bales off to the side on the opposite side where he sleeps (and where he later sleeps with a romanced Inquisitor.
Varric is constantly to be found in the sitting area off the Skyhold Main Hall, but that cannot be where he actually sleeps... so where is it? My gut says that he probably sleeps in a room we don't see off the tavern. Varric just feels like a "room in the tavern" guy to me.
Cole keeps a sweet, sad, cobwebby little corner to himself on the second level of the Herald's Rest tavern. In my fanfic, my Inky finally got him to go stand around in a bedroom in the Herald's Rest, even if he didn't sleep in the bed ("So many feathers! The birds are sad.").
While Bull may lounge comfortably against the opposite wall of the Skyhold tavern whenever he's not sparring, training, or fighting, (Krem loyally watching over the area to the left, in Bull's blind spot), he seems to sleep in that room off the upper area from Cole's corner in the Herald's Rest. It's most notable for that ax in the footboard.
From the view of the stairs outside, this is definitely where Bull and Inky are interrupted later on (it's cleaned up a bit by that point) by Cullen, Cass and Josie.
Sera's adorable, bohemian little nest off the second floor of the Herald's Rest is one of the most charming living spaces we encounter in the game.
