    Summary

    The Rutherford siblings invited Charlotte “Charlie” Gibson into their house and home with no questions asked. For years, Charlotte was able to rebuild her life after multiple tragedies and loss. Mia, Branson, and Rosalie, along with their spouses and children, accepted the unorthodox and clumsy woman as a beloved adopted sister.

    Now after sitting on her hands for far too long, Charlotte is able to give this sorrowful family something in return: their lost and estranged brother, Cullen, the famous former Commander of the unpopular Second Inquisition. The ex-templar has nowhere else to go, and Charlotte knows he is a sinking ship quickly drifting towards jagged rocks. Charlotte is willing to risk her own life and safety to bring this broken man back from the brink of self-destruction. However, will the stubborn former knight accept Charlotte’s offer to reclaim Cullen’s life as his own again…or will he turn this deceitful lunatic over to his former advisors for the crimes that could have drastically altered the Inquisition’s bitter end?

    Summary

    Tamsyn Ashworth's life is turned upside down when reality is destroyed by an apocalyptic event and replaced with a world she only knows through video games. With no applicable skills, she bargains for her protection in the only way she knows how - with her knowledge of the future.

    But if she wants the story to go as she thinks it should, then she must keep many, many secrets.

    Even those of their enemies.

    Will she manage to survive in this new world she must call home, or will her honesty about herself ultimately be her undoing?

    Summary

    After her discharge from the Alliance, Commander Helen Trevelyan joined the Andromeda Initiative, wanting to leave her personal tragedies and a psycho ex-boyfriend behind her. She expected to sleep for 600 years, and wake up in a med bay. Instead, she crash-landed on a snow-covered mountain, ten-thousand years later. She is alone, confused, and dying from eezo radiation. And the only sign of civilization is an old church in the distance.

    A Post-Modern Girl on Thedas fic.

    Many, many thanks to my betas, Dreadlordcherrycake and Duinemerwen, who have advised me on all matters of lore, plausibility and verb tense. If it wasn't for them, this story would still be in cryo. Any mistakes are mine, not theirs.

    I have a regular work schedule IRL, which means I don't have a regular update schedule on AO3. This story is visually supported.

    Summary

    When a writer's DIY time travel plans fail (hate when that happens) and she faceplants into another dimension—one rife with dangerous magic, brooding romantic heroes, and a painful lack of coffee—what's a girl to do?

    1. Try not to die.
    2. Lie her ass off.
    3. Make the most of it.

    As told to renowned author Varric Tethras.

    Summary

    Xandra has heard the term “Soulmate” used so many times in her 23-year lifespan that she no longer believes in it, yet there is a tiny part of her that still believes her other half is out there somewhere waiting. After all, she does have a "tattoo" that she's had from birth marking her as a soulmate to someone. But after three failed relationships that childhood dream has been crushed. Yet, as she is thrust into a world she once thought as just a story, she just so happens to meet her other half while he’s caged and damn near insane.

    Cullen is a Templar of the Templar Order and is proud to be one, yet he silently yearns for the day he finds the one person who bears the same marking that is upon his left shoulderblade upon his back as it is encouraged for Templars to find their soulmate (unless said soulmate is a mage) as it somehow makes then stronger, faster and better able to perform their duty (and fucks with the biology of both soulmates). After being allowed to leave the tower to aid with ending the Blight, he speaks with her only to discover that she is now fighting the bond the two share.

    Summary

    Soliana Wolfwillow is an average young woman. She enjoys instramental music, with the occassional worded song here or there, loves reading fiction (yes even fanfics) and adores the Dragon Age series. So when the day comes that Cullen Rutherford himself arrives at her doorstep, she decides that the least she can do for him is try and figure out a way to get him back to Thedas. Maybe. Despite the hours of long research she puts into it, she keeps coming up short and Fanfictions are only helpful some of the time.

    Cullen, meanwhile, watches as Soliana pours every ounce of her energy into helping him while also working a part time job. Unsure of what do to he watches as she runs herself ragged trying to help him find a way home. But as time passes, he is slowly coming to find that maybe he doesn’t want to go back. Maybe he came to this world for a reason and if part of that reason is Soliana then perhaps he will refuse to go back to Thedas should the choice be given.

    Summary

    Current readers, please see "status" note in pre-story comments! <3
    - -

    The Premise:
    You know the story. There's a woman. She gets a green mark in her hand, boys like her, everyone wants to kill her, shit gets dicey.

    The Twist:
    She doesn't speak Common, knows everything that's going to happen but not who she is, uses magic that shouldn't be possible, and moves like she was made for battle. She doesn't trust or like Solas, and she has no intention of allowing things to happen the way they're "supposed" to.

    Throw in some time travel, plots that stretch back thousands of years, ample sass, an ancient Elvhen mating ritual or two, and what we have is (hopefully) a damn good ride.

    Summary

    She barely remembers her childhood in Ostwick, but that has long ceased to matter. Liviana is a slave, bound to the Ludus Atropos of the mighty Tevinter Imperium, and that is her lot in life. And for the most part, it is a relatively comfortable life and she is content, having sold her conscience and soul years ago in order to survive.

    Until her friend takes an unimaginable risk and fights back against the ties that have bound them, and Liviana is forced to choose between freedom and death, or worse. She decides to run, but everything is so new and the world is suddenly so very lonely and large. What's a former slave to do with her life now that she is free? And why the hell is she agreeing to stay in Kirkwall? Surrounded by the taint of blood magic and finding herself in the company of mages, of all things, Liviana struggles to discover what it means to live.

    And maybe, even how to love.

    Spans DA2 and DAI.

    Summary

    Charlotte St. Clair wanted to get away from her life: the depression, the anxiety, her foster family, the angry professors, the crappy jobs... she wanted out of it all. But falling through a magical portal into an equally magical (and dangerous) world was not the way she thought that change would happen.

    Everyone has heard the phrase at least once and likewise, at least once everyone has brushed it off.

    Be careful what you wish for.

    Summary

    Piper knew she was courting danger, going out alone to search for her sister, but she didn't expect things to go sideways in quite this fashion.

    Modern girl(s) in Thedas, because it's such a fun trope. Each chapter is 1K to 3K words, based on a randomly selected prompt. Point of view will change from chapter to chapter, but it mostly revolves around Piper. There will be 100 chapters in all.

    Summary

    “’Give me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy’,” I exhaled, picturing the Inquisitor with only one arm. My voice sounded hollow, even to my own ears.

    Solas’s eyebrow raised, but he did not immediately reply. His sight joined mine, staring at the empty place where the Herald of Andraste and Cullen had previously stood.

    “You think this story will have a poor end?” He asked, after a second of contemplative silence.

    I know it, I thought.

    ——————

    There was no hiding from it, no denying it; no rationalising or trivialising. This was a land I thought I knew so well, alive and breathing before my very eyes. This was the land of so many legends, so many myths and mysteries; the history of its earth embedded in the soil below my very feet, the blood, bones and tears of thousands I had never thought actually existed until now.

    ——————

    [My own interpretation of the 'Modern Girl in Thedas' trope, with the woman in question having full memory of the events of Dragon Age: Origins, 2 and Inquisition. She is NOT the Inquisitor. Striving for a realistic approach.]

    Summary

    Sometimes Lyra Lavellan wondered just how she ended up running what seemed like the largest, weirdest clan ever, and how she and the apostate elf were clearly the only sane ones there.
    Sometimes Solas wondered how all his plans kept developing so many complications.

    7/6/2018 : Edits to Chapters 3 and 5. Also, now with art!

    1/17/19: Major edits made including changing this fic from present tense to past tense. Since I wrote Parsley in past tense, I felt that this one should be as well for consistency. If you spot any random present tense remaining, please let me know!

    Summary

    Ashamaya, or Asha, has always dreamed of an unexplainably large black wolf with several blood red eyes ever since she was a baby (six of them that she knows of at the least) who has always guarded her against the nightmare that is her modern life. So when she finds herself somehow in a world that she believed only to be fiction, the wolf becomes even more protective and starts teaching her to control her vast powers while reluctantly allowing her to also learn from the Circle mages.

    Solas has watched over Ashamaya since she was just a baby. He has always cared for and loved her as a father would his child, because well...she IS. She is his daughter, and it is his biggest regret that he cannot do more for her because of his own actions. But when she comes to Thedas he takes it upon himself to teach her how to guard herself against the demons of the Fade and teaches her to better use her magic. When he meets her ten years after she arrives in Thedas, he is proud of her yet also filled with sorrow for the fact that he may also endanger her life for he cannot stop what is soon to be done.

    Summary

    “Are you willing to speak?” He inquired as she watched him carefully. Covering her fangs, she smiled a wolfish grin at that moment.

    “Well,” she said, "that depends on how willing you are to speak.”

    Raven and Kalon, sister and brother. Where one is, the other is never far behind. But Raven has a secret and Kalon has kept it that way for years. Raven is a werewolf-like creature who can switch between human and "werewolf" forms at will. But when Raven and Kalon arrive on Thedas unexpectedly and with no memory on how they got there, Raven decides that her knowledge on the world of Thedas and the people within the fledgling Inquisition will buy her and Kalon some time to figure out what the fuck is going on and hopefully find a way home for both of them, unless of course Kalon just happens to be the future Inquisitor and both of them just happen to find love where both of them least expected it.
