    Summary

    A Fereldan Civil War AU

    The winter of 9:31 Dragon draws to a bitter close. Teyrn Loghain Mac Tir, hero of the people, has revealed a string of secret letters between King Cailan and Empress Celene of Orlais. The specifics are unclear, but suspicion of Orlesians run deep, and there are always those willing to take advantage of political scandal. Declaring the king unfit to rule, Loghain has retreated to his southern stronghold in Gwaren, with Queen Anora by his side. Fear and greed threaten to tear Ferelden apart.

    In Denerim, Cailan busies himself with maps and battle plans, hoping to stem the tide of blood before it can start.

    In the Arling of Edgehall, King Maric’s bastard son fights against the rebels flocking to the traitor’s banner, determined to free himself from the shadow of his royal blood.

    And in Highever, Rosslyn Cousland, bitter at being left behind, watches as her father and brother ride to war, unaware of the betrayal lurking in the smile of their closest friend.

    Summary

    Was it fate or destiny that brought him to where he was now? Was it fate that brought him to Elysium? Was it fate that brought him to the Normandy? Was it destiny that brought him to beat Saren and the Collectors? And perhaps the most common question: was it his destiny to have defeated the Reapers and saved the galaxy? Or was it just a matter of fately steps that led him to that course? These were the questions the galaxy asked after the day was won. Those were the questions the eternally grateful galaxy asked after Commander Shepard disappeared.

    After Shepard saves the galaxy from the Reapers, he is somehow thrown into the world of Thedas. There he finds a new world’s growing list of problems. Instead of sitting out this one, he charges into battle in order to help out his new allies and do his part in saving this new world of aliens and monsters. Who knew he’d have to save the world yet again? That is, if he doesn’t get killed by magic or dragons or whatever the hell that giant hole in the sky is. Garrus sure owes him that drink.

    Summary

    This is the first fan-fic I ever wrote and, of course, it got way out of hand. This story is about my character, Fela Cousland, a young woman with a particular knack for reading other people. Following the betrayal of her family, she is to become a Grey Warden at Ostagar, which she is not exactly thrilled about. It does, however, give her purpose during the greatest shistorm of her life. In the eye of said shitstorm, she finds Alistair, who quickly becomes her most trusted friend. And from there, well, that's where it REALLY got out of hand.

    I should give you a fair warning, this is full of triggers for some people. Violence, discrimination, strong language, mentions of rape, severe psychological trauma, depression, and manipulation. I'll try to give proper warnings in the notes at the beginning of each chapter. Please read these at your own discretion, and I hope you'll enjoy reading this virginal fan-fic. You might notice mistakes when it comes to language, as I am not a native speaker of the beautiful English language and don't have a beta reader. I do however, prefer to write in it, so go easy on me when you give me your much appreciated tips ;)

    I don't own Dragon Age, but you knew that.

    Summary

    This is the story of Elissa Cousland, Shield Anvil of Fener, and her journey from sole survivor of the slaughter of her kin to defeating the Blight and becoming the Hero of Ferelden.

    This is the Dragon Age/Malazan Book of the Fallen AU that probably no one wanted but that I have had in my head for YEARS. In honor of Dragon 4ge Day and my finally getting my Malazan tattoo (on the same day!), here it is - a retelling of Dragon Age: Origins using the world building of Steven Erickson's Malazan series.

    Summary

    At the end of the Fifth Blight, the Hero of Ferelden sacrificed herself to destroy the archdemon. Some thought both souls had been destroyed, but a soul is energy and cannot be destroyed. Rather, they were sent to the Abyss/Void. After ten years in a literal Hell, she hears a soul screaming in the Fade. A tranquil mage (Trevelyan) had found herself in the Fade and her psyche cracked. Andraste stepped in and exchanged the two heroes, taking the Tranquil mage with her and restoring Lady Elisabeta Cousland to life. Not only must she deal with having a strange mark on her hand, but having a mage's powers and the repercussions of her death and resurrection (including having spent ten years in the Void/Abyss).

    Samarra Bayart is a researcher, albeit one with a small Dragon Age obsession. So when she finds herself in Thedas, she's convinced she's in a dream... till she realizes she's not.

    Given the title of Oracle (which she's not a fan of, thank you very much, she's a scientist) she must carefully walk the line between using her knowledge of the game to guide the Inquisition, while protecting herself and her secrets.

    Can she put what she knows to get the best ending for the ones she cares for? Or will she crash and burn in the wolf's jaws?

    Life, as Ana Cousland knew it, was perfect. As daughter of the second most powerful man in Ferelden - behind the King- she had everything she could ask for; her own mabari hound, loving parents, living in a beautiful castle, sneaking away with her childhood sweetheart to the gardens for stolen kisses and gentle caresses. Little did she know of the dark forces lurking in the shadows, waiting for their opportunity to strike. Before she knew it, the unexpected betrayal from her father's closest friend shattered her perfect world, resulting in her fleeing for her life in the middle of the night. Yet, even after reaching Ostagar and informing the king of the treachery, Ana quickly discovers that evil lurks everywhere; even in the ranks of the renown Grey Wardens.

    Summary

    A thousand years before, magisters from Tevinter broke into the Golden City of the Maker. In their hubris, they thought to take the city and the Maker's powers and free the Old Gods. They were thrown out and became the five races of vampires. When these vampires find an Old God, they turn them into the Vampire King or Queen. The corrupted Old Gods, then lead their followers in an attempt to take over the World of Thedas. While they appear to be dragons while in their slumber, they can turn to appear human and in that form they search for power (along with their destined 'mate'). These Blights upon the land can only be stopped by the Crimson Wardens, a group of skilled men and women who bear the Mark that indicates that they were Chosen to fight the scourge of the undead in the Maker's name. Among those bearing the Mark is Maeve Cousland. She had no desire to join the fight against the undead, but another Blight is upon the land of Ferelden and fate has different plans for her.

    Summary

    Hell. How do I describe this mess?

    It's chaos. It's seven wardens-to-be traveling across Thedas, all recruited in shady, rather inopportune ways by a tired man who's forgotten what it's like to be a normal person. It's watching them grow from scared, angry kids to adults powerful enough to stop a blight - it's every origin from DAO, shoved into one fic.

    "So, Wardens. That's what this is, right?"
    "Yep. Welcome to the crew - team Jaded Young Adults Save Thedas. Betrayed by a friend, framed by your brother, nearly killed by a mirror that ate your crush, escaped execution after winning a competition, family killed in front of you by your father's old friend... and your fiancé got killed on your wedding day? Yeah, don't worry. You'll fit right in."
