    Summary

    After a torrid encounter in a storm that surprised them both, Dorian and Cullen have agreed to test the waters and see if there's something more between them than just unbridled lust. Neither of them, however, have ever attempted a serious relationship before, and the road ahead of them is rocky enough as it is without adding a courtship into the mix- demons, dragons, the end of the world... oh, and dancing. Facing the threat of an undead magister with delusions of godhood almost looks easy in comparison.

    Summary

    Fleeing from the destruction of Haven, the Inquisition is burdened with civilians, the injured and the dying, none of whom they are prepared to leave behind. When a sudden blizzard sweeps over them in the mountains, with very little in the way of shelter, Cullen's determination to save everyone puts his own life in danger- to the immense annoyance of Dorian. Saving his life seemed a simple enough thing to start with, but as the night stretches on and the blizzard keeps them trapped together, simple things have a terrible habit of becoming complicated.

    Summary

    After defeating the Blight a decade ago, Elissa Cousland was appointed Teyrna of Gwaren in recognition of her service to the nation and as recompense for the loss her family suffered in the massacre at Highever. Elissa, however, did not want Gwaren; in fact, Elissa wanted nothing more than to vanish from the public eye entirely, to lick her wounds and avoid all responsibility. She certainly did not want to be foisted with the task of rebuilding a broken, abandoned province, empty and Blighted.

    Instead, in defiance of the crown, she gives Gwaren to the elves- a choice that has had lasting political ramifications across the years. Now the world is falling apart, the Circles disbanded and the templars rebelling, and Orlais crumbling into civil war. When word arrives that the King and Queen have allowed the templar order to take refuge in Therinfall Redoubt- an unassailable fortress lying within the borders of the new elvhen homeland- the question becomes whether the time has come for the elves to rise up and defend their home again.

    Summary

    At the command of her Holiness, Divine Justinia, the people of Thedas have descended upon the tiny village of Haven, and the fabled Temple of Sacred Ashes, journeying from across the continent to answer her call for peace. Amongst the thousands gathered in the mountains, three people- a mage, a guardian, and a soldier- reflect on the paths they have taken to reach this point, and the sacrifices they have made along the way.

    And on the eve of the greatest conclave since the signing of the Llomerryn Accords, those three lives will make all the difference.

    Summary

    Summary

    In just a few short weeks in Ferelden, Corinne Trevelyan has already witnessed the ugly face of war first hand. Attacked by rogue templars on their way to the conclave in Haven, she and her family have seen no end to the atrocities committed in the name of freedom and order- and that's without Corinne struggling with a growing identity crisis about her place and privilege as a free mage.

    Between Corinne and Haven, however, is the famous Redcliffe castle- home of Arlessa Isolde Guerrin, a brutally uncompromising advocate for mage rights ever since the death of her son, and most recently home to the mage rebellion at her invitation. Their journey will take them straight through Redcliffe, and they are far from unexpected.

    Summary

    At the urging of her adoptive parents, Corinne Trevelyan has committed herself to attending the conclave in Haven calling for peace between the rebel mages and the mutinous templars. Already uncomfortable with the thought that, as a mage raised outside the Circles, she will have no stake in such talks, her journey becomes further muddied by the revelation that her Rivaini family have plans far beyond the reach of the conclave.

    It is a long walk to Haven, and the war has already begun.

    Summary

    After the traumatic events at Kinloch Hold, Cullen is sent to the remote chapter house at Greenfell to recover, an order he takes to be little more than a punishment. Meanwhile, struggling to come to terms with the horrors of the Blight, Penny Amell cannot shake the guilt and grief at having survived such an ordeal when so many others perished. At the suggestion of her beloved Leliana, she slips away for a brief chance at solitude before she is required to take up the mantle of Commander and Arlessa.

    Her path takes her to Greenfell- and to Cullen, a man whose love she had tried time and again to forget.

    Summary

    As part of the Kink in the Armour writing relay, I was given the sixth prompt: Inappropriate use of the Skyhold Throne

    The mantle of leadership can be lonely indeed- it is a fact that Cullen is well acquainted with after years as the public face of the templars in Kirkwall, and he knows the toll it can have on a person. When he encounters his new commanding officer, Geralt Trevelyan, burdened with the weight of his responsibilities, he cannot help but want to set his mind at ease.

    As part of the Kink in the Armor writing relay, I was given the fourth prompt: Dorian gives Cullen the Talk

    Dorian finds himself immensely protective of Amala Trevelyan, and he knows well enough that attraction between a mage and a templar is a doomed and painful affair for all involved. So when she begins to spend greater amounts of time with her military councilor, Dorian takes it upon himself to intervene.

    Summary

    Corinne Trevelyan has not had the most conventional upbringing. As a mage born to a noble family, her path in life should have been assured- a quiet life in a Circle tower, her family connections offering her a measure of security and luxury not usually afforded to mages.

    But fate, it seems, has something different in store for Corinne.

    Summary

    Justice is a concept, an ideal- he embodies all that is good and all that is bad about the mortal concept of justice, and can imagine no other life. A chance encounter with a human interloper in his realm will change everything he is and everything he will be, and he will learn that there is so much more to the world than he could ever have believed.

    Summary

    After their confrontation in the Chantry, Cullen and Corinne Trevelyan haven't had a chance to build back the uneasy peace that used to exist between them. Her powers continue to unnerve him, and her fascination in prodding at his pride at inopportune moments frustrates him further.

    Mages are not to be trusted, of this he is certain- but he has no idea what to do about a mage determined to have his trust.

    Summary

    As the newly appointed Commander of the elite Republic special ops unit known as Havoc Squad, Ellaz Hervoz is on shaky ground with her executive officer, the also newly demoted Aric Jorgan. United by their unflinching devotion to the Republic and its citizens, they nonetheless tend to rub each other the wrong way more often than not. Alone together on Taris for their first unsupervised venture, Ellaz tries Aric's patience further than normal when she risks their time-sensitive mission on a foolish errand that threatens both their lives.

    With the assistance of Sergeant Dorne, their contact and potential candidate for the role of medical officer on the squad, Aric has to work with a deck stacked against him in order to save not just his reputation, but the life of his Commander and the safety of the entire Republic.
