    Summary

    Bethany Hawke was no longer soft. She had been, for so long she had been soft - Garrett Hawke’s darling, naive little sister, whom Isabela called Sweetness and Varric called Sunshine. But life, and Kirkwall in particular, had a way of hammering that out of a person.

    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

    After losing Haven and fleeing into the Frostback Mountains, the Inquisition discovers it needs a new home and direction, establishing itself at Skyhold. The advisors determine they need a permanent leader to guide the faithful against Corypheus, and Evie is asked to be Inquisitor. The mage accepts, shedding her past chains and declaring a new chapter in her life to bring forth change.

    However, Evie quickly discovers she has traded one pair of shackles for another, overwhelmed by both her divine role as the Herald of Andraste and the emotional and physical demands of being the Inquisitor. Pressures from the Trevelyans, Orlesians, and Templars began burying the fire mage. Her Inner Circle invades her personal life. Her only saving grace is Cullen, who makes it his duty to be her protector, despite his own past creeping throughout Skyhold. The commander recognizes quickly the woman he has grown to care about is falling through very thin ice. Evie must choose between what is expected of her titles and what brings her happiness.

    Summary

    Lady Trevelyan has no survival skills (much to the commander’s exasperation) and spares no expense at making it known (much to the commander’s amusement). She complains and he patiently offers advice and encouragement, and between field trips, they manage to pine for one another from appropriate distances.

    This is a REWRITTEN work in progess.

    Summary

    He needs relief, she needs protection.

    It works out, so they make a deal without saying much, letting their actions be their words.

    The Herald and Commander find a way to make it through war, but what starts off as just a way of getting what they need, turns into something neither of them expected, or really want.

    Summary

    He sees her. Not as the Herald, or as a mage, or as the woman who took the mantle of the Inquisitor. He sees her as he sees the sun after so many years of midnight. He sees her, and he sees the future that he needs to protect. When she sees him, all of him, she sees him as the rose in the garden that lasted through the winter. The one that endured, to become all the more beautiful.

    A very slow burn novelization of Inquisition, focusing on the moments between Inquisitor Lydia Trevelyan and her commander. As the events of Inquisition unfold, so do their own personal struggles, issues, torrid pasts, and feelings for one another. Sprinklings of other characters here and there. Will eventually diverge from canon.

    Summary

    Transported into Thedas, Lena River is thrust into Kirkwall years before the Fifth Blight hits Ferelden and thus three years before Hawke ever sets foot in Kirkwall. What does a Dragon Age fan do to ensure their survival? Not get involved with the main story at all. Except that doesn't exactly work as she plans.

    This story will span from 9:26 to 9:42 Dragon.

    Summary

    With the fledgling Inquisition starting to assert its presence in the hinterlands, Commander Cullen Rutherford questions Seeker Cassandra Pentaghast about the Mage now being hailed as Herald of Andraste. When an opportunity arises for him to have a proper conversation, he discovers that Marcus Trevelyan is dealing with more demons than the ones from the Fade and that more than a common enemy binds the two of them together.

    Summary

    ‘There once was a girl without a heart and a boy who drank starlight to keep the nightmares at bay–and they met, as stories often begin, in the dark of the forest…’

    As a Knight of the Inquisition, Ser Cullen is no stranger to the horrors that linger in the dark woods of the lands. Tasked to locate and do battle with a dangerous lindwyrm, he finds himself cast into the depths of the forest, injured and lost within the tainted memories of his past–perfect prey to a hungry beast of legend. What stumbles upon him instead is a Witch of the Woods and though she heals him, there is no kindness in this dead-eyed elf’s touch. Duty commands him to do away with her quickly but when he realizes she can make lyrium–or ‘Starlight’ as she calls it–Cullen’s addiction leaves him no choice but to keep seeing her, giving away parts of himself he didn’t realize he still had and awakening things within the Witch she didn’t realize were still alive.

    Summary

    An AU of Dragon Age Inquisition, Where the Inquisitor has a fearsome older sister in the form of a giant white wolf.
    A REALLY long re-telling of Inquisition.. Really.

    Elena Trevelyan wants nothing more than to live her life as a wolf in peace, away from humanity.
    But then her brother becomes the Herald of Andraste.
    She has to protect him from the evils of this world, but who will protect her from her kind who has hurt her so much already? Who will help her become human again?
    Surely not the handsome, blonde stranger that hunted her down like a lion on a fox when she was just a child...

    (I recommend reading the first story in this series for some background on Elena, Samson and Cullen)

    Post-Haven. Mentions of sexual assault and attempted rape as well as mentions of past child abuse. I'll make sure to indicate which chapters have those as well as the smut with a giant NSFW. While trying not to spolier it, LGBTQIA+ themes as well as self discovery for several characters.

    chapter updates every Sunday.
