    Summary

    Following the events of Witch Hunt, Morrigan hides in the place in between worlds with Kieran and his father - and, depending on the latter’s origin and temperament and secret desires, this pocket realm is transformed into something entirely different. For a Dalish elf, it appears as a dusky glen where ghostly halla graze; for a human noble, it is an idyllic country cottage that Howe’s soldiers will never threaten; and for an Aeducan enamoured with the surface, it is a dreamy likeness of the entirety of Thedas.

    Summary

    "You once told me that your life was about sacrifice, that you did your duty so that another man, somewhere else, could be a husband and father without fear. I know it would be unfair of me to ask you to compromise your duty, to stop your vigil, so I will not ask. But I wish you did not have to sacrifice knowing your child. Come meet her, at least once, under any auspice you wish. Bryce has already agreed, so long as it is discreet. "

    Summary

    You learn every nook and cranny of the castle and remember them. You allow your mabari to terrorise Nan when the boredom gets too much. You pray in the Chapel for something, anything, to happen so that you might have some excitement, some glory that goes beyond the duty of being a Cousland.

    Summary

    Five years before the Fifth Blight, young King Cailan suspects a conspiracy against him on Ferelden's northern coast. He sends his most trusted agent to investigate. Red Jenny is waiting.

    This story is one of adventure and intrigue (plot-heavy) with canon-typical violence. There is an atypical love story between two atypical adults, so look for the fluff and atypical smut.

    Summary

    Highever is ravaged by civil war, flooded with refugees and shaken by rumours of the blight. For Isehris, once a grey warden of the Free Marches, now a fugitive, it may seem like the last place she should run to. For Ruan, a young man in disgrace, it may seem like a place to find redemption in a noble cause. Both will find that nothing is so simple as the tide rises around them.

    Summary

    Before Duncan came to Highever, Beatrice Cousland was a daughter. A sister. An aunt. She had gained a title. A reputation. A love interest. It was a time that seemed so long ago, a time before she took the oath of a Grey Warden.

    Summary

    An old Fereldan saying suggests mabari are clever enough to speak, but wise enough not to. Now his feelings for his fellow warden are deepening beyond mere friendship, Alistair is beginning to see how very true that is, though the proverb leaves out that - at least in the case of one particular mabari - they also get very, very jealous.

    Summary

    “You don't have to leave him! Most nobleman have mistresses or concubines.”

    Concubine!?” Gideon slammed his fists onto the table, rattling all its contents and his brother, “Never call him that. That is the last thing he is to me!”


    Fergus just...didn’t have the energy to remarry. Howe had run Highever into the ground, and he planned to make good on his promise to his brother to examine the treatment of elves. Planning a wedding would be a waste of resources and time!

    ...though that excuse fell apart when he thought about how hard he was trying to force his brother into it.


    Sequel to Home Is Where The Heart Is (Or Where Your Adorable Antivan Elf Is).

    Summary

    "It's better that you've come," Lyonesse says softly, not looking at any of them. "I'm not strong enough to leave on my own."
    The four of them look at each other, then at her with surprise. "You know this isn't real?" Leliana asks her.
    "I watched this castle burn," she answers, voice flat. "Do you think I don't know a dream when I see one?"

    Lyonesse Cousland, trapped in the Fade.

    Summary

    Some scenes don't make it into the stories or they lead down alternative paths not taken. I've begun to turn a few from the I Shall Endure universe of Melysande Cousland and friends into alphabet one shots. They are 1000 words or less and won't be done in order. Most assume familiarity with Book 1: Brief Shining Moments; all assume familiarity with Dragon Age and Thedas.
