The untold story of the Vaels of Starkhaven--a story of friends and family, love and loss, disgrace and redemption.
"You don't know what it's like...to know you weren't wanted. To know you're a burden. To know that your own father, despite what he says to your face, doesn't consider you a true Vael…and that even though you tried to prove yourself through regular means, the only time you've ever captured his attention is when you come home stumbling drunk…"
Sent to the Chantry at 17, Sebastian Vael doesn't deny that he fully deserved to be called the Black Sheep of the Vael family. What Sebastian didn't know was that the decision to exile him wasn't made solely because of his shameful behavior, and that the events leading up to his departure would shake the principality of Starkhaven to its very core.
Tags will evolve as the story develops, but do expect general concepts of sex, alcohol abuse, and violence throughout.
- Part 1 of Only Just a Dream
The continued story of Sebastian Vael and Starkhaven. He's loved and lost, been a disgrace and found redemption. But will the Maker's next set of challenges be too much for the Exiled Prince to overcome?
Nothing I’ve ever done has made me worthy of my title. Especially not now, not when my family lies dead and I’m still here, exiled because of selfish stupidity. There’s nothing “high” about escaping your true fate. I belong with them.
After the loss of his entire family, Sebastian must decide whether to give up the Chantry life that has saved him or take his place as the rightful Prince of Starkhaven. Just when the decision seems clear, he meets Aspasia Hawke. Sebastian finds himself questioning his decisions, values, even his faith as he follows the apostate around Kirkwall. Before long, the Prince is head-over-heels for Hawke but there's a problem; she's spoken for. Can Sebastian bear to let love slip through his fingers again?
Meanwhile, the citizens of Starkhaven struggle under the puppet regime of Johane Harimann. Can the few supporters of the Exiled Prince evade the blood mage's wrath long enough to raise an army? Will Sebastian even want the crown so many have died for?
