    Summary

    The life of a Grey Warden is one of terrible sacrifice. Everyone knows that, even if they don't know exactly what it entails. But no matter how violent and dangerous it is, it has to be better than the terror, persecution, and abject misery of Kirkwall's Circle of Magi. Killing darkspawn sounds preferable to killing herself, so when Scarlet's twin sister, Rose, appears out of nowhere with a couple of Grey Wardens and the Right of Conscription, she doesn't ask questions.

    When backed into a corner, it's been said, mages have options that other people don't.

    [Spoilers for Dragon Age II. I attempted canon compliance (except where canon is fuzzy, or canon and I disagree about how difficult and painful magical healing should be), but I'm only human.]

    Summary

    Update:
    Chapter 1 (Rewrite) (Scenes will be added later)
    For Erune though, the world around her became muffled and then muted as she focused on the green spire.
    “Oh, Goddess Elinu...” She whispered to herself. “What is happening?”
    ****

    Summary:

    Quen Lavellan never expected this: A hole in the sky, rifts all across Thedas, a Mark on his hand that was connected to all of this mess, and four young girls with animal ears and tails with claims that they were from another world.

    Erune Fae and her three sisters had a mission: Travel through the Breach that appeared suddenly in Arborea and find a way to close the rifts on the other side. Little did she and her sisters know what Fate would have in store for them when they entered this new world.

    Summary

    Even before defeating the Arishok and subsequently becoming “The Champion Of Kirkwall” Evan Hawke was a pretty unbelievable guy. Still, there’s only so much any unbelievable guy can take before reaching their breaking point. Fortunately, Fenris and Isabela exist – as does alcohol.

    Summary

    Bethany Hawke did not choose the life of a Grey Warden. For her it was not a Calling, a desire, something she wanted in life. She had dreams of princes and silk dresses. Of freedom and being normal.

    “Being a Grey Warden is not a cure. It is a calling.” That's what Stroud told her sister and yet Hawke gave her to the corruption thinking it would save her. Of course the Taint never saved anyone, what a foolish notion.

    Now Bethany must endure what the Maker has given her in life whether she wants it or not, but the thought is always there in her head. 'What if I can't?'

    Summary

    Jayla is a dancer, not a warrior. Jayla is a human from Earth, not a Mage from Thedas. This is madness. How is she supposed to seal a Breach, restore order to half a continent, prevent an assassination, and solve a murder? Did she mention that she's a dancer?

    Summary

    Prompt: "Alistair helps Bethany grow to love joining the Wardens, and come to terms with her magic."

    This isn't a pairing I've written for before, but I was instantly in love with the idea of these two together! I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    In an alternate universe, it's been ten years since the Heroes of Ferelden worked together to vanquish the Archdemon Urthemiel. Lady Victoria Trevelyan and Mahanon Lavellan are both selected to attend the Divine's Conclave to see how the Mage-Templar War would be resolved. After boarding the same ship and being introduced by a chance encounter, they develop a mutual respect which evolves into a strong platonic affection. This sustains them when they emerge as the only survivors of the Conclave, each with a strange mark on their hands. Known as the Lord and Lady Herald, the Left and Right Hands of Andraste, and eventually the Lord and Lady Inquisitor, they must work together to save Thedas from the machinations of an ancient being known as the Elder One.

    Christmas gift for my best friend who doesn't have an AO3 account.

    Summary

    Joaquina Hawke—mage, reluctant Champion, curator of bad puns—is having a busy decade. The Kirkwall shenanigans. The strange inheritance that puts Hawke and her friends in the midst of a slave rebellion in the Tevinter Imperium. The return to the city she left behind when her estranged Templar brother needs rescuing.

    Not to be outdone, two rogue acquaintances offer Hawke yet another challenge: the Hero of Ferelden is trapped in the Fade, and they need Hawke's help to get her back.

    A world of deadly nightmares? Delightful. At least Hawke will get some sleep.

    Summary

    For DWC (Talesfromthefade is my sideblog. Thanks for your prompt! ^_^ ): Your post mentioned liking more vague open ended prompts, so how about whatever "the smell of saltwater" conjures up for you. I'm thinking FenHawke, but I'm sure it'll be great whatever pairing or idea tickles your fancy.

    Summary

    The hero of Ferelden disappeared after the fifth blight. The death of his best friend, King Alistair was too much for his heavy heart to handle. Queen Anora took the throne, and she and the Hero's brother, Fergus Cousland- eventually became married as a political campaign for the Queen's reign. The hero himself, Aedan Cousland, wasn't seen again in Ferelden for quite some time. He had left to the Free Marches long ago, not able to stay in the place with so many hurtful memories. With his mabari at his side, he vanished into history as a legend.

    Summary

    When Hawke asked her to meet with a Grey Warden on Crestwood, she never suspected to find him there. The struggles of his life painted clearly over his face, and the dark future only adding more layers to it. Klia decided to help him with everything she had, he deserved it, and maybe her rogue heart can stop pinning for him this time...

    ------------------------------

    An alternate universe where Alistair is a Grey Warden but have been King for years (didn't like the way Bioware treated him with all the Loghain crap...) I will change the outcoming of the Here Lies the Abyss mission, so if you don't like non-canon stories, don't complain about it :P

    IMPORTANT NOTE: My beta is now available to me, but I got the story delayed for real life and shinny things >__< I'll try my best to have the next chapter soon and recover the rhythm of posting!

    Summary

    Samarra Bayart is a researcher, albeit one with a small Dragon Age obsession. So when she finds herself in Thedas, she's convinced she's in a dream... till she realizes she's not.

    Given the title of Oracle (which she's not a fan of, thank you very much, she's a scientist) she must carefully walk the line between using her knowledge of the game to guide the Inquisition, while protecting herself and her secrets.

    Can she put what she knows to get the best ending for the ones she cares for? Or will she crash and burn in the wolf's jaws?
