    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.

    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?

    Summary

    Noble (adj.) 1. of a hereditary class that has special social or political status in a country or state; of or pertaining to the aristocracy. 2. of an exalted moral or mental character or excellence.

    Both are broken, left shattered by pasts too painful to remember without consequence. Both find safety in the arms the other, a shoulder to lean upon but also a lover to bring light to the darkness surrounding them. Though brought together by miraculous circumstances it might, in some twisted way, be destiny.

    You were sent as a silent observer, meant to bring news of the Conclave's outcome to your clan. Though, before any valuable information could be gathered, a massive explosion occurred. I guess you could say things did not go as planned.

    Summary

    The Dalish have a name for those who abandon their clan and live alone in the woods. Melana Lavellan, a mage who hates magic, has decided to live her life as a Harellan, despite her twin brother's objections. The only thing she wants is to run with the wolves, not the responsibilities of a Keeper.

    I was writing another fic when this idea came up. I just wanted to share it with you guys. Let's see how it goes.
    Update: Harellan is now part of the Queen of Rifts series, assuming the role of a pre-Inquisition introduction that will set the base for Lavellan's choices during the Inquisition.

    Summary

    Update:
    Chapter 4
    He looked back at the others, more confident now. “If your Inquisition’s goal is to try and restore order from all of this chaos…” Cassandra smiled and held out her hand to him. Quen took it, shaking in agreement. “Then I’ll do whatever I can.” As the two withdrew, he turned to Eirai, holding his hand out to the Elin. “And I would be grateful to have you and your sisters alongside me.”

    Eirai shook his hand. “It’ll be a great pleasure to work with you.” She smiled

    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

    We all have cracks in our souls. Shallow cracks and deep cracks, they're all cracks. They say a gracious trait of life is the ability to repair those cracks. It's actually quite silly to say that all cracks fully repair. Some cracks don't repair, some cracks hurt for an eternity. The thing about those types of cracks is that, eventually, a seed will sprout from it. In reality, cracks aren't ever fully repaired. All we can do is mend and heal until it's in a better condition.

    That's what Lilah Trevelyan thinks, anyway. Mending is a hard process, but it's all everyone can ever do. She went into the process as an apostate, only surviving by the hairs on her neck. Then, after a series of events, Lilah found what she sought after for so long. Finally, she didn't have to mend her soul alone anymore.

    However, there was a man she never dared to speak to. His permanent frown and the fact that he was an ex-Templar both combined to scare her away. It took swallowed fear and prodding to see the crack in his soul. His crack was deep and filled with a burden only he understood.

    He doesn't believe it yet, but she knows that a flower can sprout from his soul.
