    Summary

    Set near the beginning of Act 2. Following the trip to Chateau Haine with Carver, Isabela hatches a plot to matchmake the templar with Merrill. Varric bets that it won't work, while Merrill has no idea what's going on. Will Carver manage to win Merrill's heart? Or will Isabela lose her bet?

    Prequel to The Templar And The Blood Mage, but also works as a standalone. Inspired by the following "Mark of the Assassin" DLC dialogue:

    Carver: So... how is Merrill? Sad that she couldn’t come along.
    Isabela: She’s fine, all things considered. Why do you—Wait.
    Carver: What?
    Isabela: You. Merrill. Andraste’s granny pants, I can't believe I never saw it before!
    Carver: What? No! No no no no. You’ve got it wrong!
    Isabela: Stop fretting. I’m on your side, and I always win.
    Carver: She’s not a game of cards!
    Isabela: Whatever. Good at matchmaking, not so good at the analogies.

    Summary

    “There will come a time when the Dread Wolf wakes and the Dread Wolf walks and the Dread Wolf hunts and a time when an elf unlike any other of her time catches the wolf's eye, an elf so unlike the others he can't help but follow her scent, an elf that will be the light to his dark"

    Summary

    This long, over drawn work (it will be in the end) came from a conversation with a friend. We got on the matter of Bioware and how they kept changing the official cannon for the Dragon Age World. It seemed like someone was going around and messing with their space-time continuum. At some point, I made the joke that what they needed was the Doctor to come in and fix the world. He told me that I had to write a story about that. So this baby starts at the worse possible ending for Thedas (so major spoiler for anyone who hasn't done all three games as Solas is fulfilling his dastardly plans). Then the Doctor enters and goes back through the story to fix things (after picking up one of the Dragon Age characters to add to his crew of companions).

    Summary

    Qunari don't mate for life. They don't settle into the monogamous ways that other races do. They grab life by the horns and ride it hard. They indulge lustfully with whomever they please whenever they please. This is the way of the Qun. And it was something Iron Bull lived by since birth, a mentality that is as much a part of him as the majestic horns jutting from his skull. But even so, the ways of the Qun just may end up as nothing more than hazy remnants of his past once he crosses paths with the most unlikely stranger. A woman that, in time, will realize she has managed to tame the Bull and capture his heart in a way no one else ever will.

    The Iron Bull is the one used to doing the conquering, but he ultimately becomes conquered by the confusing, alluring, infuriating, passionate reins of true love...

    Summary

    Anne is a quiet and shy servant girl in Skyhold. This is a collection of episodes/vignettes about her and her life in the keep.

    Brought on by a Tumblr conversation about "self-inserted" DA fanfics. I said that if I was anyone in Skyhold, I’d probably end up being one of the quiet, invisible servants running around the grounds. A little mouse scared of her own shadow.

    What follows is the result of that idea.

    Summary

    I don't like this wartable mission. So I'm fixing it.

     

    A hand offered in friendship to one turns to hold a blade to the throat of another, a request made for aid to subjugate a city already fighting back from the brink of collapse.

    For their own good, or so Prince Vael claims.

    Perhaps best left to diplomats, but it is not as simple as pieces moved on a map when the ruined city is the home of one of Evelyn Trevelyan's closest allies...and the Prince is her most hated enemy.

    She will have to step in herself, and trust that Sebastian meant it when he said he offered his friendship to the Inquisition.

    He will certainly never have hers again.

    Summary

    I wanted to write about a noble woman who was gentle and proper but also kind--rather than bullheaded and fiery, as I've sometimes seen (and written myself--its not bad at all, just wanted to try something different. Most of my lady Inquisitors are fierce).

    She's a dream to sell to the nobles. Josephine loves it. Cullen is awkward.

    Change is never easy. And the price can be high.

    Summary

    She had done it once, and it wasn't fair that they wanted her to do it again. Would they ask for her life a second time, or could Idalya take the broken pieces of her memory and make a better world this time?

    An alternative universe where the Hero of Ferelden finds out that death isn't sacrifice enough.

    Summary

    Siblings Naomi and James Westerkamp were living normal lives, attending school, looking for jobs, wishing they didn't have to live with their parents.

    Their lives were good. They were stable. They were safe.

    That was ripped away when an explosion and a flash of green light knocked them out while hiking with their family on vacation. Naomi and James woke injured and confused with their brother David in a strange world with technology centuries in the past, magic, and mythical creatures that only existed in stories.

    But they were also dropped into the middle of a conflict they could only begin to understand, where fighting demons was more than just a figure of speech.

    Life in Thedas is dangerous, adjusting isn’t easy, and things get worse before they get better.

    Explicit rating doesn't really apply until chapter 76. This is a sloooow burn.

    Summary

    AU: He was dead. Alarion was dead for three months, but now he's back. Alive, safe, and with absolutely no idea who anyone is, including himself. That would be hard enough for Dorian to deal with without the elf flinching every time he comes near. What to say? "Hi! You don't remember me, but you once loved me. Please, if you'd be so kind, do so again. I very much miss it."

    Summary

    Ela Trevelyan has been many things: a Noble, an Apostate, a Warrior, and a Mercenary Captain. Yet, none of those things prepared her for the explosion at the Conclave. When her younger brother, Aiden, emerges from the Fade with a strange mark on his hand she must learn to handle the weight of the world on her shoulders, while keeping her brother out of trouble.
    Not to mention she has to keep their true identities a secret from the Inquisition’s Spymaster, lest they discover a terrible secret that could get her and her brother killed.

    With her brother in tow she does her best to balance her duties, all while pursuing a certain rogue, and being pursued by an ex-templar she can’t trust. New surprises are constantly around the corner for Ela and Aiden, along with new disasters.

    Can she keep her brother safe from possession, Templars, and the Elder One, or will she lose the only person she has ever cared for?

    Summary

    Haunted by the mistakes of her past, Evana Lavellan feels (reluctantly) compelled to stay and help the newly dubbed "Inquisition" close the Breach. But no longer than that. After all, they only care for her welfare because of the mark on her hand. Unfortunately, every mission seems to take her further away from her goal instead of closer to it.

    But each refugee saved and disaster averted also brings with it a sliver of tranquility, a fleeting taste of atonement for past wrongs. Surrounded by new people - new friends - she discovers a wider world than she'd ever imagined with her clan, a world in which she has the power to improve the lives of both elves AND mages.

    Strangest of all, she finds herself drawn to an unlikely friend and confidant in Inquisition's ex-templar military advisor who, like her, is all too familiar with the bitter taste of regret... and the fragile touch of hope.

    **Game scenes/dialogue included but also tons of original "in-between" moments, dialogue, character development and introspection. Super mild AU for shuffling conversation locations and tweaking the order of events. Quizzy is my own. Rating will update with content. Updated weekly (more if I can).

    Summary

    Leanne is a Ferelden refugee. Leanne is a mage. Forced to leave her home for a city that doesn't want her, will she be able to find her place as her new home crumbles?

    A modern retelling of select parts of Dragon Age: II, focusing on the mage rebellion. With a hearty helping of smut.
