    Summary

    This is the third story in the Doctor in Thedas series. It begins one year after the Blight and goes through the destruction of the Chantry in Kirkwall and the beginning of the Mage/Templar War. This series began with a discussion, between the author and a friend, about Bioware changing canon. This turn into a theory that someone was going back and messing with the timeline. Naturally, they needed someone, say The Doctor, to go fix it. Hence, in the first story it is learned that Elanna Levellan the wife of the Dread Wolf stole Captain Jack Harkness' time device and used it to make it easier for Solas to tear down the veil and defeat his enemies. The Doctor is trying to stop her and repair as much of the timeline as he can. Some he can not and others he decides to change himself. This is the story of what happens in Thedas as events are changed. It is also the story of those in Thedas as they fight Blight, find their destinies, and take a stand. (It's a long drawn out soap opera)

    Summary

    Timeline is mostly flexible. (My) Storyline drops this somewhere before the ambush at Lake Calenhad.

    One of those scenes I couldn't get out of my head, so I wrote it out. How I wish the 'what does being a Warden mean to you' conversation could have gone.

    Summary

    Timeline is post-Redcliffe Village and first trip to Denerim/ambush by the Haven cultists at Lake Calenhad. (My) Storyline places this directly after Under the Influence of the Moon and Stars.

     

    This story came from two things: the title popped into my head and wouldn't leave, and I needed a way to set up for the pure headcanon stories that are going to follow. Easy enough to mash them up.

    Summary

    Cassandra, unimpressed with the antics of the rogue they have agreed upon as the leader of the Inquisition, agrees to Trevelyan's challenge to a duel with dubious terms; certain that there is no way she can lose to such a woman. Events unfold leading to the slow burn/build-up of a relationship between two very different women and eventual hidden plots.

    My "vision" of how the Inquisitor and Seeker come to be. Story will veer to slightly non-canon but follow a lot of the storyline set up in Inquisition, complete with my own dialogue and timeline changes.

    Summary

    In war, victory. In peace, vigilance. In death, sacrifice. What a joke. The old men at Weisshaupt still judge me because I killed the archdemon...and survived. As if all the sacrifices I made to get that victory didn't count unless I was dead.

    They've become too complacent. They're asking the wrong questions of the wrong people, ignoring the problems in their own ranks while they hide behind a thin veil of politics, chanting their motto like it is some sort of magic shield. That doesn't bode well.

    Those old men don't know what to do about the their "Hero of Ferelden" problem. Thankfully, I didn't need them or their approval to end the Blight then, and I certainly have no use for them now. I will continue to do what needs to be done, for the sake of my brother first, my country second, and the Order when it suits me.

    (The story takes place right before the Breach and will run parallel to the events in Inquisition)

    Summary

    Timeline is on the way back to Denerim after the ambush at the lake. (My) Storyline is directly after Lake Calenhad Days.

     

    This is pure headcanon/flight of fancy - Alistair and Mistral on their own for a fortnight or so, however fast(ish) they can run to Denerim and back to Lake Calenhad. Travel times are based on the awesome information available on the wiki.

    Summary

    Disbanded entirely...absorbed into the Orlesian army... try to continue as they are and face war from the powerful nations on either side of them like a vice. Nothing fit. There was no other option. This is the dilemma Tucdela Lavellan faces stepping into the Exalted Council until a third path opens in the form of a letter and the words:

    Summary

    Cullen’s father told him some encouraging life advice: marry your best friend. With five mischievous childhood best friends, he imagined someday he would put that guidance to good use. However, a tragedy during his high school senior year nearly destroys the group’s comradery, and they all agree to never date one another to avoid love shattering their friendship.

    For the first time in eleven years, the friends all live together in Haven again and are as close as ever. A marriage proposal and a discovered skeleton suddenly forces the group to reevaluate their lives, specifically what happened that nearly drove them apart. Heavy memories, regrets, shame, and lies consume the friends, while choices since high school catch up with them. Current events bring back their sorrowful pasts with the potential to either rip them apart or finally realize what they denied for far too long.

    Summary

    You have a Blight to stop. No money, no allies. No problem. Just stick the Archdemon with the pointy end.
    Another all-Origins-are-true story. Though if you are tired of seeing this sort of thing, close your eyes for ten seconds then open them. That helps with the tiredness.

    Summary

    Duncan found his recruit outside Orzammar and never returned to Highever Castle for Nalissa Cousland. When the castle fell, she escaped with her life but was eventually captured by Rendon Howe and held in Fort Drakon, a last ace up his sleeve to give his claim to Highever legitimacy if Loghain failed. And fail he did; Sereda Aeducan saw to that by making Alistair the King of Ferelden. Now, a year into the new king's reign, Eamon attempts to arrange a match for Alistair with the sister of Ferelden's only remaining teyrn. As with all things in Alistair's life, it couldn't be more disastrous or more incredible.

    Rated M for language and PTSD!Cousland.

    Summary

    The witch glared at her. “If that is all you want out of life, then you are more a fool than they.” Turning, she took several steps to her hovel. Having a change of thought she stared back at the other woman. Studying her for several moments, Morrigan finally said, “I stopped explaining myself when I realised that other people will only understand from their own level of perception.” With a swish of feathers and leather, she marched off to her bedroll, but not before calling over her shoulder. “I would consider what they said to you my dear, and what you actually are.”

    Summary

    In the age before Ages, countless winters ago, when Auger and Wilder shaman and Clayne priest came together to Foretell the return of the Great Dragons to the skies of Thedas, they predicted need of a vessel: an unmarred youth, pure of body and strong of heart, to walk the Bloodied Path and restore dominion to the mightiest and most destructive of the Maker's creations before their wisdom is lost to mystery.

    This is not what Bryony Wolfe signs up for when she unintentionally cuts herself on some weird costume jewelry.

    In which a modern-day arts student from Earth is tossed unceremoniously into Thedas, bumps into some Witches, learns about destiny, runs away once or twice, and traverses the more dangerous half of this strange new world, all in an effort to fix what someone else broke...before her creepy new tattoos kill her.

    Summary

    Shadows Pass, Light Remains

    She falls through a rift, into a place she only thought existed in games and books. But the timing is odd. The Inquisition has already won. So what the hell is she supposed to do? Why is she here? Chance? Or fate? At least she has no one left back home to really miss her, not anymore.

    Commander Cullen Rutherford has always given his all to his duty. But each time, his devotion to his cause has left him with scars. Demons from Kinloch, blood magic from Kirkwall, and now... lyrium from the Inquisition. Except this time, he might not make it out alive. To think that the woman who swore she loved him could do this to him...

    What else is left for him now?

    Summary

    Beth Cousland wants to revitalize her family's charity and keep her name out of the headlines. She's got a plan to make that happen, and dating definitely isn't part of it. But when she crosses paths with Alistair Griffin, all of her resolutions might just go out the window.

    Alistair wants to do right by the kids in his after-school program. If that means taking Cousland Foundation money, so be it. But he isn't prepared for the way Beth Cousland makes his heart skip beats. Ferelden's wealthiest heiress would never date a nobody like him ... right?

    A tentative romance is in the air--until an old enemy of the Couslands threatens to destroy everything they've both been working for.

    Shameless Origins AU fluff. This started as a Neighbors AU with a prompt from @sirinial. Rating will likely go up to E at some point, but you will be warned. ;)
