    "They're in the garden, and he's watching her confuse onions for weeds, because being an all-powerful something-else doesn't make you any better at growing vegetables."

    Summary

    After a bus accident, Liz wakes up in Haven, stuck in the fictional world of Dragon Age. How does a modern girl get by when she can't speak the language, and her expansive knowledge of the Blight and Kirkwall, but limited knowledge of Inquisition would only make her look more suspicious? Fake being deaf and mute, and hope not to get caught before she can find proof of her origin. But the best laid plans never work out as expected...
    -Summary by the magnificent and amazing ElyssaCousland.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Update: Now on Ch. 51 and I can say with confidence that this is one of those really, really special fics you only ever find a few of.

    A few of the chapters at the very beginning felt a little slow. So much that I considered dropping this as a fic I was reading.

    That would have been a mistake.

    As of the time of this bookmark, I'm around chapter 9, and this is the first story in a long, LONG time that has me so giddy that, at over 30 years of age, I am almost making excited squealing noises like a 16 year-old fangirling out over the latest episode of Sailor Moon.

    If you're a fan of DA:I fics, you cannot go wrong with this. It's Modern Girl in Thedas, but without all the annoying shit that usually comes with that territory, and with a whole lot of things that make it very special. Highly recommended.

    Summary

    For six hundred years Sankta Alina has ruled as the physical personification of the nation of Ravka's spiritual and national identity. With the persecuted Grisha flocking to her side as a fanatically devoted army and aligning with the Lantsov family to establish an unbroken line of ruling tsars, under her reign Ravka has risen from a dark age of unending warfare to a unified kingdom bound by peace.

    But after six hundred years under the heat of an unrelenting queen of the sun, Ravka is suffocating from the traditions and laws of the past. Once meant simply to preserve and protect Ravkan culture and lives, it is employed to ruthlessly strangle and suppresses any attempt of progress.

    Now the land is boiling with rebellion and revolution and the question is being whispered all over the land: "If the people have grown ready to rule themselves, what place is there for the ancient Mother of Ravka?"

    Then, down from a mountainside in the heart of Ravka, comes a black-haired boy with grey eyes and a power unseen in any Grisha for six hundred years. The scales are precariously balanced, which side will his power uplift and which will it bring low?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The work doesn't have a beta, and it shows via some rough edges. Some parts are also a little slow.

    Having said all that, this is the most artfully beautiful thing I've seen on Ao3 and way, way up there with some of the better published authors I've read. her Aleksander is -insanely- compelling, her story is original, and really I cannot wait to see where she takes it. One of those fics you get really excited over as you watch it get born.
