    Summary

    When Violette Surana escaped the Gallows thirty years ago, Samson never expected to see her again, let alone as the Chantry's blessed Herald of Andraste. But here they are now, on opposite sides of the war and very much not ready to fall in love.

    Summary

    They clashed, and he lost.
    It was as simple as that; her fury was indeed like that of the Maker, the Maker he didn't believe in, as she stripped him of his power and his agony both, with determination in her eyes that he was certain could level armies.

    Raleigh Samson and Amelia Trevelyan are both broken in their own way. Each firmly believes that they do not deserve happiness. Yet either fate or chance has decreed that their paths should cross. But the sympathy that grew into loyalty, admiration that just may grow into love? That was all them. Every yearned-for kiss.

    Summary

    The image of her body stretched before him was one that never left his mind. She was intoxicating to watch. She was pure will, aloof confidence, and unbridled power. He knew this was wrong, that she was a mage and these thoughts were dangerous. But how could he help himself? What were Templars for, if not to protect those who couldn't protect themselves? How could he protect her if he could not even look at her?

    And so he kept looking.

    A brief insight into the mind of Cullen Rutherford during the first months of his living at the Circle Tower of Ferelden. There is, for the most part, just one thing on his mind. Or, rather, one person.

    Summary

    The jump was supposed to end things, not give her a new beginning. But here she was, in a world of magic and impossible things like the tiny dragon who was essentially her new impulse control, armed with a renewed sense of purpose and the power to summon storms with the snap of her fingers. With nothing but a desperate hope to finally live the life she had always wanted, she was going to help the Inquisition fix the hole in the sky even if it killed her. Oh, and the fantasy lumberjack guy living all by himself in a cabin in the woods was a plus.

    Summary

    Two 20-year-olds with sheltered and restricted upbringings, who've never been allowed to make their own choices in life, suddenly find themselves with the fate of Thedas resting in their hands. They've both got demons in their past, fears to conquer, and an army to raise, not to mention growing feelings they can't ignore and don't know what to do with.
    There is explicit sexual content toward the middle and end of the story, but it takes a while to get there. There is significant sexual harassment in two places: right at the beginning, and then again a few chapters later.
    Cullen is not a good guy in this one, so be forewarned.
    Look for the sequel, Bound by Blood, now in progress.

    Summary

    (Per request, this is a meta post series from my tumblr, archived here.)

    Challenged to romance Cullen Rutherford as a mage with the prediction that it would completely change my opinion on him, this is an over-analysis of Cullen’s writing in DA:I, specifically with his romance.
    It is not a personal attack on anyone who likes him. Be my guest. But I still hope you are willing to read this with an open mind, because then maybe if you don’t already, you’ll get a better understanding of why there are so many people who dislike him. And stop issuing challenges to “get to know him better.”

    Summary

    If Varric Tethras had been asked how to write a novel he would have said start somewhere dramatic with a character the audience can relate to. He might have even gone on to say make sure you grab your audience and by writing what you know. If he thought you were any good he'd tell you to make sure to know when to stop the story.

    If Varric was your friend, however, he would tell you to forget the whole thing. He would tell you writing will only break your heart and writing what you know means you always write a tragedy.

    Summary

    Laz Surana is twenty-two when Ser Cullen comes to the Tower, a newly made Templar. She thinks nothing more of him than any other. He is one more faceless suit of armor to avoid, neither so zealous as to be violent, nor so quiet as to be dangerous. She only thinks it odd that he became a Templar at all, given his clumsiness, his stuttering speech, and his breathing problems.

    She is twenty-three when she's told that he is only clumsy, stuttering, and breathless in her presence. "Love" is what the other apprentices call it, but the bitter tone of their voice reveals something darker. The Circle, already a prison, becomes a treacherous minefield as Laz is consumed by the terrible paranoia and helplessness that comes with being a Templar's favorite.

    An introspective examination of how one man's mismanaged attention affects a young woman whose life was already kind of in shambles. No romance and no interaction of that nature.

    Summary

    The inquiry into the conditions of the circles across Thedas is an ongoing, highly visible political issue, sparked by the destruction of Kirkwall's chantry one year ago. In the year since, violence has erupted all across the continent, and the Conclave called by the Divine may be the only chance anyone has at peace.

    In the middle of all of this, former enchanter of the Ostwick circle and current barrista Rayla really just wants to stay out of the way and flirt with the ambassador who comes in every day for coffee. Unfortunately, nothing is as simple or easy as she would like it to be.
