    Summary

    Lady Vivienne, the First Enchanter of the now defunct Montsimmard Circle of Orlais, joined the fledgling Inquisition under Corinne Trevelyan under the express understanding that she would be working to secure peace across Thedas, and to restore a system to provide protection and education to the mages of the realms. So far, her aspirations have not quite been on par with those of Corinne, a Rivaini wild mage disowned by her Marcher family, and her frustrations grow when Corinne takes steps to invite Ferelden to provide an ambassador to Skyhold.

    Bann Teagan Guerrin is not a young man anymore, and he had hoped he had left his more elaborate escapades in his youth, but when duty comes knocking in the form of an ambassadorial posting to Thedas' newest wild card, a stateless nation fuelled by fanaticism perched right on their own border, he has no other option but to answer the call.

    In one another, Vivienne and Teagan discover a stalwart ally, a surprising friend- and perhaps even love.

    Summary

    He is a prince turned general. She is a slave turned Jedi. He is a tool of conquest, she is a force of compassion. They have nothing in common.

    They are more similar than they would imagine.

    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

    The Inquisition marches onwards, and so too does the burgeoning relationship between the Commander of the Inquisition and a member of the Inquisitor's Inner Circle. Templar and mage, Tevinter and Andrastian- in theory, Cullen and Dorian should have nothing but contempt for one another, nothing to even lay the foundations for civility, let alone love.

    But Cullen has walked a dark and painful road prior to his current role, and there are aspects of his past that he is reluctant to share with Dorian. With Adamant Fortress looming on the horizon, he may not have a choice in the matter.

    Summary

    Divine Justinia has called for an end to the war between mages and templars, and all of Thedas turns towards the small village of Haven, watching and waiting with bated breath for the outcome. It is the greatest conclave in an age, at least- some say there has not been a gathering like it since the signing of the Llomerryn Accords in the twilight years of the Storm Age. But, for such a grand event, there are several notable figures absent from the proceedings.

    The woman once called Champion turns her face away, ashamed that her name has been used as a rallying call for war and rebellion. Another woman, a Hero to some, hides in an old fortress in the mountains, alone with the ghosts in her head. Would-be heroes, chafing at the bonds of responsibility and duty, wait for their moment to step forward and claim their own stories.

    Change is coming to the world- and the fate of many will converge on one single, unfathomable moment.

    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

    Corinne Trevelyan would very much rather that people would ignore her surname, and the family who so cruelly set her aside as a babe. When an expedition to the south of Orlais reopens old wounds, it falls to Cullen to prompt her back towards healing.

    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

    Sex and magic are two things that Josefina Hawke is fairly certain she will never understand. One of them she is supposed to desire, and the other she is supposed to despise. She’s fairly certain she has them around the wrong way.

    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.

    Summary

    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

    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.
