    Summary

    Part 3 of the 4 part series. This one is darker, and it deals mainly with addiction, torture and the healing of Cullen with Diana. There is going to be a lot of dark themes through this and I do warn readers, it will hurt. But it won't hurt forever.

    Summary



    When Dr. Freya Lavellan treats a patient following a vehicle collision, she quickly realizes he's a member of the Templars, an elite Marine Corps division.

    Shrouded in mystery, the Templar division employs only the finest Marines. Their rumored goal is to create the ultimate Super Soldier, and conspiracies abound as to just how far they're willing to go to achieve their end.

    Cullen Rutherford may just be the key to blowing the lid off the whole operation, but can she help keep him safe long enough for them to figure out what Project Ruby is, or how far up the chain of command the atrocities go?

    Summary

    When she moves, he can't help but watch. When she speaks with her lilting voice, that Dalish accent so prominently there, he can't help but listen. She is like the sun in his life, like a ray of hope that he desperately tries to cling to, a comfort that he thought he would never deserve. She was his fire at the heart of the world, and comfort was only hers to give.

    ---

    This fic will explore the relationship between our Mage Lavellan and her troubled Commander, Cullen Rutherford.
    It will be a slow-burn, with lots of fluff, back-of-the-neck-rubbing, stuttering, exchanged glances, light touches and attempts at speaking Elvhen to an obviously amused Dalish Inquisitor. Her Commander is as complicated as he looks, and his Inquisitor is not as confident and unmarred as he thinks. If you like seeing two dorks slowly learn to communicate and trust each other, and some hurdles to overcome, this will hopefully be your thing!

    It builds on some separate things I wrote before this, so check out the series before you get into this one! I did not expect to really start a multi-chapter fic so this is why it's split up. I might merge them together later.

    Summary

    Taking extra precautions, Cullen and Evie protect their budding romance from the Inner Circle and their adversaries. Almost as soon as their relationship begins, the couple must separate as Evie and her comrades travel to the Western Approach. She finds herself surrounded by both Corypheus’ henchmen and her own personal enemies, specifically those who supported her brothers’ killer, Anders. The Inquisitor's growing emotions for Cullen force her to recognize Anders’ associations with her abused body and her guarded heart. Alone, the Inquisitor suffers continuous setbacks as she battles both her internal and external demons.

    At Skyhold, the Inquisition’s advisors run the organization alone. Emotions run high throughout the fortress with each new troubling situation. With Evie hundreds of leagues away, Cullen slowly succumbs to his worsening withdraw symptoms. The consequences of his past decisions and actions plague him mercilessly.

    The Inquisition may fight to save the Grey Wardens, but it may fall to their mutual enemy: Fear.

    Summary

    Evelyn is far too naive, young, and overwhelmed by everything asked of her after the Conclave. She tries to put on a brave face, but she's slowly falling apart. Cullen is far too weary, self-loathing, and searching for redemption in his role as Commander of the Inquisition's forces, but he doesn't think he's worth finding any.
    They both feel broken, but maybe they can find a way to feel whole again.

    Heavily romance focused novelization of DA:I featuring an age gap, struggles with lyrium withdrawal and trauma, an Inquisitor who's trying to figure out life beyond the Circle for the first time, and new feelings they both don't know what to do with.

    Explicit smut after a rather long, slow burn, with plenty of angst. Some canon will be glossed over or hinted at. DA:I/Cullen/Trevelyan spoilers.

    *CURRENTLY UNDERGOING EDITING to reorganize. Don't worry if the chapter numbers suddenly drastically changes, I'm not deleting anything.*

    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 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. Slightly diverges from canon. Rated E for later chapters.

    Summary

    “You know… I was thinking,” he begins after a while and I blink one eye open sleepily as he takes my small hand in his, bringing them to his lips. Sleep addles my mind and it costs me a great amount of strength to stay awake, the heat he radiates like a siren’s call. It would be so easy to fall asleep now…. He never cuddles with me after sex, so this is a major change that I am unwilling to miss by slipping into the fade. Cullen aids me in my quest to fight off sleep, his next words like a cold washcloth dropped onto my face. “I want a new start.”

    #######

    Story focuses on Hailey and Cullen, how they handle the Lyrium withdrawal, individual weaknesses; as well as developing and strengthen the bonds of their unusual relationship. Events of Dragon Age Inquisition get addressed as background to show the story's progress and timeline but aren't the prominent theme.
    This story is heavily NSFW.

Her only saving grace is Cullen, who makes it his duty to be her protector, despite his own past creeping throughout Skyhold.

    Summary

    What if instead of being sent to Kirkwall after the Blight, Cullen ended up at the Ostwick Circle?

    AU exploring what would have happened if Cullen had ended up in Ostwick and met Evelyn while she was still in the Circle and he was still a Templar. Features Evelyn and Cullen as written in my main work, Eye of the Storm. Plays with canon and timeline, even the one I created in EotS. Will eventually lead into the events of Inquisition.

    Updated: Rating is now accurate, explicit content.

    Summary

    “We will take her with us.” Cullen sounded more confident than he felt, his heart sinking as he rose into a stand with her in his arms. Light like a feather, her ribcage easily felt through the layers of their clothing. But as if the Maker wanted to give him a sign, her face turned towards his neck, cheek coming to rest on his heart. Trustingly. It made his decision final.

    “If there is anything we can do for her… we will do it. Even if it only means to end her suffering and give her a painless death.” Golden eyes singled out first Delrin who nodded resolutely, no doubt already planning her treatment to prevent this from happening; then Alistair, who shouldered an odd looking backpack. He stepped forward and placed the blanket over her small form, in a vain attempt to protect her further.

    “You are safe now, Butterfly.” Alistair said softly, the nickname somehow fitting for her. Fragile and tenuous, the blanket like a cocoon. A silent understanding passed between the three men, and then they turned towards the sanatorium.

    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.
