And is immediately captured by Tevinter slavers, who also manage to capture a 5 year old Ellana Lavellan. Thrown together into the cruel world of the Imperium, tormented by blood magic, they make a promise to be sisters and protect each other always.

    This is their epic quest to gain freedom, find themselves, and fufill their destiny in life.

    Summary

    In 9:18 Dragon, a 6 year old human is found in the Kocari Wilds.
    Her demonstration of magic grants her a one-way ticket to Kinloch Hold.

    These events would hardly stand out if not for two facts:
    1) She knows she's trapped in a video game.
    2) She was 26 years old, the last she checked.

    The upside: 12 years should be more than enough time to come up with a plan to survive the impending Blight.
    (She hopes)

    Summary

    Elissa Cousland has grown up in one of the most powerful families in Ferelden, being the daughter of a teyrn she has more than she could ever wish for. The price of that wealth, is duty above all else and the chains that bind her to her noble background and her family. Being a young, independent woman with slight sociopathic tendencies in Thedas, while the fifth blight closes in with hoards upon hoards of darkspawn, does not make things easier.

    This is a pre-Origins AU from the perspective of both Elissa Cousland and Loghain Mac Tir, as they fight their ways through the blight.
    It contains explicit violence and sex and is not suitable for anyone below the age of 18.

    Summary

    When a ride home doesn't go quite as planned, a Dragon Age-loving college student finds herself waking up in the Brecilian forest. But she quickly learns that that's not even the weirdest part.

    Basically this story is a Modern Girl In Thedas that starts pre-blight and will run until Trespasser at least.

    [Currently rewriting the beginning bc I'm unhappy with it, but I have not given up on this in the least]

    My tumblr side blog for this story is @faded--for-her. I post updates, WIMR (head)canon, and general Dragon Age stuff.

    Summary

    An AU where a non-Warden Jenna Cousland finds herself in the middle of a scheme hatched by her well-meaning parents to match her up with Bann Teagan. The Couslands get unexpected results from their determined matchmaking as the attraction between their daughter and Teagan goes from a clandestine nighttime rendezvous to a hasty wedding and all that comes after.

    Starts before the Blight and (hopefully) goes through rebuilding Redcliffe after it is over.

    Summary

    If you’d asked Alistair what he wanted – not that many people ever did – he’d have said, oh, you know, the usual. Eternal rest. The Fade, Maker’s side, all that sort of thing. He wanted to go out like a hero, protecting the woman he loved.

    Of course, that depends on actually "going out" in the first place, not just waking up in the Cousland grounds feeling like an ogre’s trampled on your head. And not having the woman you love right next to you, not even knowing your name, because you haven’t met yet.

    Written for a prompt on the k!meme: "Alistair gets to do over."

    Summary

    How the girl could manage to rekindle a sentiment that he had long since thought snuffed out—first by Rowan and later again by Celia—in a single, delirious act was utterly bewildering to him.

    “Maker’s blood, Bryce is going to kill me for sure….”

     

    Loghain deals with a drunk F!Cousland prior to Origins. Fluff ensues.

    Summary

    After every conquest, Zevran leaves some sort of mark; a hickey or perhaps a token of his appreciation. But when he meets Lysia Tabris, an elvish woman who lives in the slums of Denerim, he leaves something more permanent. A z-shaped scar on the inside of her wrist along with a promise that he would see her again, that she would be his last and only conquest from that moment on. But Zevran is still an Antivan Crow, and when duty calls, he disappears. Thinking she has been abandoned, Lysia wears the scar hidden away under her sleeve. But what if Zevran never forgot her? What if he planned to keep his promise? What if, Zevran Arainai, assassin and lover of many men and women alike, carved an 'L' into his wrist as his own reminder?
    AU where Zevran meets the Warden before they're conscripted.

    Summary

    Sit, sit, my friends. Drink your cups and finish them. Tear your bread and sop it dripping. Sit, sit, cross your legs beneath you. The cold south winds and the wet north winds have called for a tale, and who but I can tell it? Yes, let the cold winds rest. Let the wet winds listen. I will tell the tale of the solemn boy and his spirit-protector.

    This is how it was.
