    Summary

    She pushes back her hood, exposing the points of her ears. It is all of thirty seconds before the humans start to notice—they look at her with surprise, then confusion, then rage. She is undaunted.

    Let them see.

    Let them know a Dalish elf has come to Wycome.

    Summary

    Spring arrives early for Dr. Charlotte Trevi, so it's time to enjoy some outdoor lecturing. Y'know, until the physics of time and space are rendered null and void and a man from another era/world/reality falls into her pond. Well...not HER pond, strictly speaking...

    Summary

    The year is 9:34 Dragon and Kirkwall is labored with unrest. In previous years, many Fereldan refugees and Qunari immigrants flooded the streets, tipping the delicate balance within the city-state wherein public disobedience and heinous crime have now risen supreme. The city slums are home to a majority of the thriving corruption and as such, most of the governmental neglect - or perhaps fatigue - is felt there. Many citizens desperately try to claim control of the law with their own hands, for better or worse…

    One Fereldan refugee used the unrest to her benefit as she dragged her family from the gutters into the affluence of high society. Taking justice upon herself and recognizing opportunities, she earned a reputation and enough coin to reestablish her family's status. Even though many of the upper echelon disapprove of her tactics, person, and origins, Marian “Ian” Hawke cares little for the opinions of those who oppose her.

    This is a canon divergent Dragon Age and True Crime mash-up of Kirkwall, and London’s notorious Jack the Ripper. It is a tale not for the faint of heart, but rather for the reader who wishes to ride a thrilling mystery of sex, deception, and murder.

    Summary

    A Hold in decline. A Dalish Clan on the run. A marriage promised to further the desires of both.

    To be gifted a wife was a high honor amongst the Avvar, and the Dalish brought them a Shaman unmatched, the Jewel of her Clan. The gift was one of great importance, and one that could not be un-given. Forever bonded by oath and soon enough, deed, the Dalish and Avvar each must reconcile their own cultures with the unbearable, unknowable need for the other that they felt in their chests.

    Or, in short: When an Avvar man lusts for his Dalish bride, and she, in turn for him, everyone profits.

    Summary

    This is my first go at codifying the Qunari language. We have a fair amount of it scattered around, and are sure to get more in DA:I when it comes out. A lot of these words are my best guesses, but in a fair number of cases I can't even venture a guess. Even so, I feel like I have a better grasp of the Qunari as a whole after sitting down with their language, concepts, and phraseology. Some of this is canon but much of it is simply a guess- don't take it as gospel. Almost everything seems to have a literal meaning and several figurative meanings.
