    Summary

    "Alex Knight, your description does you no justice. Much more handsome in person, and younger looking too," she walked further into the room, "A pleasure to meet you."

    He took her hand when she offered it, frowning, "What description? And from who?"

    "Ahh, that would be telling," she grinned tapping her nose, "A bard never reveals the hand she's been played."
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    A young person, Alex, is somehow reborn in Thedas. It was 1999 when they... died? But thats not all that happened to them...

    They falling in love (Several times), get hurt (A lot), going through dark times with everyone, having more friends then they've ever had before ... and end up changing everything around them.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Some NSFW bits (Will mark chapters with that, don't you worry!)

    Starts in 9:33 Dragon till 9:37. But has Varric doing his whole interlude thing in 9:40 to Cassandra.

    (Changed the name of the story, looks like its going to be a series!)

    Summary

    The time has come for Fen'harel to make a choice, between his duty and his heart.

    Halam'shivanas - The sweet sacrifice of duty.

    Note: It would be better if you read the full series, as this is a progression of a series of events and has plot line continuation from the others parts. This is a MAJOR PLOT LINE part of the story, I recommend you at least have read the previous plot part, Lost Until You Found Me - Trouble.
    -------------------------------------------

    Overall Series Summary:
    With Hawke lost in the fade, a lost Fenris joins Fen'Harel in the hopes that if the veil is torn down he can search for her.
    Solas wanted Fenris for his lyrium brands, hoping that their power can be enhanced to the extent that they could replace the lost foci to tear down the veil, but the two soon become close. Both are broken men, suffering the loss of a love - Hawke and his beloved vhenan - they find solace in one another in their loneliness and grief.

    Summary

    "There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good Pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad Pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance." -John C. Maxwell

    Thirty-two-year-old artist, Breeyanna Grant finds herself thrust into a game she barely remembers, except for one thing - Solas is Fen'Harel, and he is a liar. Thrust into the world by an ancient, she must now find a way to live through Thedas' 'boot camp' and save the people.

    This is my first time trying to write in the first-person point of view - wish me luck!

    Summary

    My take on the Modern Girl in Thedas trope! the modern individual is not a girl but close enough, right?
    This is going to be a self-insert, me *somehow* (handwaves) being put into the body of my Dragon Age TTRPG character at the beginning of DA Inquisition, and seeing where my imagination takes me from there.

    Summary

    ”The truth is relative, it depends on the lens through you observe it. Reality is the question of relativity. A madman thinks the projections of his mind are real. A faithful thinks the subject of his worship is real. For them, these things are flesh and blood. [...] Are the Templars evil for locking up mages or they are heroes for protecting innocents? Are you evil for bearing magic or a victim because your gift stigmatizes you?"

     

    A little girl is deployed to Kinloch Hold. A little girl who becomes a mage. A mage who is obssessed with fire. A mage who is dangerously connected to the Fade. A prodigy who is surrounded by hatred and prejudice in a world where bearing magic is the original sin.

    A mage who because of a mistake becomes a Grey Warden. How the taint in her blood alters her magic? How the Blight changes a barely adult girl?

    Summary

    After being discharged from the Alliance, Commander Helen Trevelyan joined the Andromeda Initiative, thinking to leave her personal tragedies and a psycho ex-boyfriend behind her. She expected to sleep for 600 years, and wake up in a med bay. Instead, she crash-landed on the side of a snow-covered mountain, ten-thousand years later. She is alone, confused, and dying from eezo radiation. And the only sign of civilization is an old church in the distance.

    A Post-Modern Girl on Thedas fic.

    Many, many thanks to my betas, Dreadlordcherrycake and Duinemerwen, who have advised me on all matters of lore, plausibility and verb tense. If it wasn't for them, this story would still be in cryo. Any mistakes are mine, not theirs.

    I have a regular work schedule IRL, which means I don't have a regular update schedule on AO3. This story is visually supported.

    Summary

    What if Solas had changed his heart? What if he never left?

    Sene and Solas begin their love in the heart of the Inquisition era. It is a season of innocence, full of friends and secrecy in the wild and a sexual awakening for them both. They're young, and they're tough, and their earliest trials seem like pits of despair and distant memories as they begin their journey. But as reality sets in, and their relationship deepens, Sene and Solas have to face some hard truths. Solas's past is full of sharp angles that start to stick him good, and of course Sene gets caught in the crossfire. No matter how warm the summer days, fall beckons always, and winter is never far behind. To make it through spring, and to achieve the elusive happiness that he has yet to earn, Solas must be a man, and he must come to terms with a violent, tragic past that's haunted him for thousands of years. And in the meantime, there's Sene, who has her own insecurities and her own family dramas to contend with, and there's the Inquisition—a heroic cavalry of friends and a beacon of hope to many, perhaps those highest in its ranks most of all.

    Summary

    An AU of Dragon Age: Inquisition in which the Anchor is passed on to another shortly after Skyhold is settled and the Herald of Andraste takes up the title of Inquisitor.

    But can Dorian, scion of House Pavus, self-proclaimed pariah of the Tevinter Imperium, pull it off?

    Not alone.

    Summary

    Alistair is the owner of a cheesy bar in downtown Denerim. Commander Cullen is a police detective from the other side of town. Both men go through the motions of their day-to-day lives, not realizing that something essential is missing.

    After a chance meeting and some casual flirting; will these two find that little spark of attraction enough to break free from their humdrum existence and lead them down the path towards true happiness?

    Welcome to my Thedas!

    As cliche' as it sounds, I woke up one morning with an image in my head: Alistair standing behind a bar, flirting shamelessly with a handsome, blonde, curly-haired detective. (Guess who?) Since the image couldn't be captured properly with the stick-figures that I am so adept at drawing, I decided to put pen to paper and run with this idea.

    Thank you for coming along for the ride. I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    Three years after disbandment, the Inquisition’s network has gone silent. Solas (now Fen’Harel), determined to see his plans to fruition, comes across a ruin on a small island, off the southern coast of Orlais and in the Sundered Sea, and finds a lost relic of Ancient Elvhenan that shouldn’t still exist. With its finding, Solas realizes that such relic can bring down the veil as his Inquisitor once wanted –without the destruction of her world as the price.

    However, to unlock its power, he needs to call upon an ancient group of Guardians he foolishly thought to be gone from this world –for they are the only ones who know how to activate the relic. But to find them, to enlist there aid, he must find Sarina Lavellan first. For she is the key in finding them.

    The only problem?

    The love of his life disappeared over a year ago and is no where to be found.

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.

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

    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

    Playing as a character and making your choices from behind a screen is completely different from being a part of a world where the knowledge you have and the choices you make can determine an entire world's future.

    When the newly renamed Athena finds herself walking out of the Fade and into Thedas proper she must contend with the fact that, although she only knew this world and these people as a story within a game, her new abilities and foresight can change the course of events and therefore the story itself. The only question now is, what will she choose to change and how will this new story unfold?
