    Summary

    Probably, no definitely, a mistake to be best friends with, be neighbors with, be on his own foundation’s board with, buy a goddamn boat with, a guy who is eventually going to grow tired of him, outgrow him, see him for what he is, which is not that special. Shawn’s amazed he’s pulled it off for this long.

    Summary

    In that moment, in the fluttery torchlight, each of them seemed too perfect; The sharp-tongued dwarf with a heart of gold, the high-and-mighty holy warrior, the mysterious sleeping woman who would have all the answers if only she could be kept alive, and the magical healer. But Varric knew better. Like everyone, all of them had secrets.

    ---------

    A series of shorts and character studies that roughly follows the timeline of DAI and explores the main (and a few supporting) players, including a Dalish Inquisitor with a talent for swordplay and perhaps a slight infatuation with a certain liar-liar-pants-on-fire elf.

    We know them as monsters. As men who have nearly single-handedly destroyed an entire population for a paycheck. We know them as Felix and Locus, two of the most deadly mercenaries in the universe.
    Well, more Locus than me. I'm just here to look pretty.

    Summary

    The Winter Winds are howling, and Sandor recognizes the Quiet Isle's new refugee. A tale of intervention, connection, and having faith.

    This piece attempts to answer the question, "If Sansa were bolder and Sandor were gentler, what would happen?", with the basic underlying principle that the characters can survive this world on their own, but need each other in order to thrive in it. This fic was born from the idea of Sandor teaching Sansa sign language, and how signing rather than speaking may affect their bond (but there will still be plenty of dialogue!).

    Summary

    The siege of Adamant has taken its toll on everyone, but the Inquisitor seems especially troubled in its aftermath. The whisperings of the Nightmare demon in the Fade, combined with the loss of hundreds of soldiers and Wardens, Hawke and Clarel among them, have settled deep into Yaanos' bones. The man most known for his kindness and warmth becomes distant and cold, and the entire Inquisition begins to flounder as its leader grows restless and silent.

    Fear has taken root deep inside him, and when it blossoms into something else the rest of the Inquisition must step up to grapple with the consequences. Escaping the darkness of the Inquisitor's past may prove more difficult than his companions could have ever predicted - after all, the brightest lights often cast the longest shadows.

    Character study/angstfest for my inquisitor Yaanos Adaar, set post- Adamant, pre- Temple of Mythal. Established (if somewhat uneasy) poly relationship between Yaanos, Dorian, and Samson plays a key role here, but is not the focus of the piece.

    Summary

    The unspoken affection between Mulder and Scully was what made the magic. Here's how it may have played out when it became obvious. This is the "I love you" story. To stay true to the show, may not be as sappy as it seems.

    Summary

    Okay this is gonna be the weirdest crossover of all time and was originally intended to be a character study of a character( Ash Cassidy- from another abandoned fic of mine) for my novel. It became a black hole. I swear it started as a list of “25 Things to not do while working with the SAS”. I blame the lightwithin, the person that helped with that list. Nobody is beta-ing this so be very patient, since it can take me a few re-reads to find all my errors.

    Felix Ubiquesta gets blackmailed for working for MI6. She is not amused with her current mission of infiltrating SCORPIA. Two years later, she joined the Avengers as their handler, and gets Alex Rider and Yassen Gregorovich to safety. Six months ago, she rescued the Winter Soldier and Agent Coulson from Hydra. This is her story.

    AKA the Avengers need a new handler after Coulson’s death, and Fury picks the nerdy chick that wears sweaters, drinks tea, and confuses the hell out of everybody.

    This fic ignores the plotlines of Captain America, Avengers 2(still not out but yus), Agents of SHIELD, and most of the Alex Rider books since I haven’t read them all, and got mad that Yassen Gregorovich died (Seriously!!?).

    Summary

    Steve carried his dreams into a war and came out the other side without a scratch or bruise, with a heart riddled with holes.
