    Summary

    Benna loves her dreams, loves to explore her private fantasy realms. But suddenly she can only dream of one place, a world full of magic and danger. She falls in with a strange collective named the Inquisition, and as it and the people of Thedas become more and more real to her, her life in the real world becomes less and less important. Where is the line between dreams and waking? What is real? A certain handsome blond makes her want to cross the line altogether. If this is a dream, maybe she doesn't want to wake up?

    Summary

    A routine mission clearing a cavern of darkspawn goes horribly wrong and everyone's greatest fear becomes a reality as the Inquisitor is infected with something that kills anything it gets its vile roots into. The Darkspawn Taint.

    Now with limited time left, Reagan Trevelyan spends his last day locked away in his room, left to slowly go mad as his friends and companions wonder what to do without their leader. Their Inquisitor. Their Herald.

    Summary

    A decade after, Kirkwall is more tolerant towards Elves, multi races and Mages. Social education and the Arts are thriving. Fenris is respected as an Elite with Aveline, training recruits and going on missions. He takes under his wing her young niece who is no ordinary magic-caster. When Zev claims to know him from before, but Fenris has no memory...(*Rating M further along Plus sharing my playlist of international taste ; )

    Summary

    The Divine's Conclave and the disaster it brings hold were always going to decide the course of the future. Vir'era, in all his patchwork glory, hopes to guide that course. A risk he may be, but a calculated one: he can do more good within the Inquisition than from without.

    Reuniting with old friends, helping them, is a bonus. (And maybe, just maybe, they can help him, too.)

    Summary

    Just as Alva's life was about to change for the better, Earth changed for the absolute worst. Lost, alone and far away from her loved ones, she finds herself in a world that she believed existed only in games - a world with rampaging demons, racist elves and scheming Orlesians.

    With her magic manifesting far differently than at home, she must learn to tackle her newfound power and quickly. Will the templars come hunting for her? Will the Dalish who found her merely hand her over?

    Or does Fate have something much worse in store?

    Summary

    "Iriv remembers the voice of the Keeper, telling the story of Elgar’nan banishing the sun in anger, and of Mythal reigning in her partner’s vengeance and creating the moon, to shine in the sun’s absence. He had liked that story very much, so he had prayed on it and borne the pain when he had come of age. Now, the green of the breach clings to everything, even the beams of moonlight unhindered by the clouds."

    Lavellan loves stories. Stories of his clan, stories of his family, stories told by strangers. He never felt quite at home in his clan, so he leaves.

    Summary

    Welcome to my first FanFic! This is my personal take on one of my Dragon Age: Origins characters, Kylara, Human Mage, and her adventures as a Grey Warden in the land of Ferelden. There is in-game dialogue used, especially in the beginning, but past Chapter 3 things start branching off from the original game. A few changes I have made: my character already knows Wynne, as she was Kylara’s former teacher in the Circle Tower. I also gave a name to the small lake east of Lake Calenhad - I am calling it Lake Caeron. Another change is that I moved the Golem Shale from Honnleath to a town of my own creation in the mountains northwest of Rainesfere. Since fast travel is available in the game, but not in the story, I had to make it more plausible to be able to recruit Shale without having to travel days south, away from all other points in the game. I also used horses and carriages where I thought they would fit into the lore. Mage spells, when written out, are in Scottish Gaelic (long spells already translated) Some characters have had some personality tweaks… A lot of things will not be canon, but I hope you will like it all the same. There is Mature Content. NOW FEATURING ART (and screenshots)! ^_^

    Summary

    Trust is a delicate flower that needs to get nurtured and time to grow. Even more so love. A tale of two disparate Wardens forced together, of finding a way to overcome the distrust, and their own painful past in the time of the Blight. Very in-depth, character-focused exploration of the Dalish origin/warden, and of all DA:O companions during the Fifth Blight. Follows and expands on canon events; AU in some ways. Multiple POV's and pairings.

    This is a COMPLETELY new rewritten and revised version of my story, originally posted on Fanfiction.net. Please see the individual chapter notes for more informations about what had been changed. Tags and Rating are subject to change and will get updated with its further progress.

    Summary

    Twenty four years have passed since the Inquisitor defeated Corypheus, changing Thedas forever. Growing up under the legacy of a true hero was never easy, even if Ethylia's identity was hidden from almost everyone around her. Few know her mother was Inquisitor Lavellan, even fewer know her truer nature. It is a secret she keeps hidden, but with the rise of the Sixth Blight, her world comes cascading down around her with one drop of blood that releases an Ancient Elven God her mother imprisoned long ago. When the Dread Wolf comes calling, will she try to save him from himself as her mother did, or will she be forced to take his life?

    Summary

    Athenna Lavellan never saw herself as much of a leader. When fate rears its ugly head, however, she is thrown into a place filled to the brim with shems calling her the Herald of Andraste. She has no choice now but to step up and save the world. She learns she is not alone when she gains the friendships of an unlikely group of heroes and a charming commander.

    This story is a novelization of DAI with a strong focus on the Cullen/Lavellan relationship.

    Some plot changes, scenes moved/replaced with original writing. I tried to stray from word by word DAI and put my own little twist on it. Please enjoy!

    Summary

    The prisoner hummed. “Then I am Drynne.”

    “Surely not!” Solas recoiled in shock. He knew for a fact that that epitaph had been struck from this age. He had made sure of it.

    “You’re going to have to expand that for the rest of us non-elves here, Chuckles.” Varric seemed deeply interested in the interaction between the two, as if he was internally memorizing it for his next book.

    “It is a title, willing sacrifice—” Solas started to explain, hoping that if the others saw this farce for what it was that the prisoner would go back on his jest.

    “Is that not what I am?” Drynne cut him off, glowing hand gesturing to the Breach. “We march against the forces of the fade itself, hoping to close the Breach in the sky with a very likely chance I will die in the attempt.”

    A fair point, Solas granted internally.
    ---
    A former Tevinter slave falls tumbling out of the fade. Fleeing persecution and violence from his once masters, he arrives with only the clothes on his back and a mantra at his lips:

    We are the people of Dirtha’var’en: keepers of the lost knowledge, walkers of the lonely path. We are the last of the Elvhenan, and never again shall we submit.

    Summary

    Solas, the Dread Wolf Fen'Harel, has left Lyna behind in an attempt to fix mistakes made thousands of years ago. Willing to destroy everything for his goals, he doesn't realize exactly how determined Lyna is to show him a better path. Both worlds could thrive, given the chance. Her world is real and valid and deserves a chance, but so does his. There must be a middle ground.

    And there is another reason that Lyna must find Solas, a secret kept from the world that attempted to put her up on a pedestal. But how would Thedas react to such a secret, such undeniable proof that their Herald of Andraste is a person like any other? That she is someone who loves, someone who makes mistakes, who bleeds and cries. And is having the Dread Wolf's child.

    (This is a complete rewrite of itself. Though the core of it is the same, this story will turn out drastically different from the original version, which has been deleted.)

    Summary

    Athdhea Lavellan is so far away from home. She finds herself drawn towards her Commander, despite their differences, and a mysterious figure, who had once saved her life and who has been appearing in her dreams.

    CullenxLavellanxSolas. Feedback appreciated. :)

    **Game scenes and dialogue will be included, but I mostly want to focus on the "in-between" moments. Rating will update with content.

    Summary

    She pushes back her hood, exposing the points of her ears. It is all of thirty seconds before the humans start to notice—they look at her with surprise, then confusion, then rage. She is undaunted.

    Let them see.

    Let them know a Dalish elf has come to Wycome.

    Summary

    Nehna Lavellan is the First of her clan, devoted to preserving the history of the Dalish people - in other words, a 'true elf.' Sera, on the other hand.... is not.
    Sparks fly between them almost immediately, but Sera isn't so keen on the more magical kind. Or elfy elves. Definitely not magical elfy elves. Even if they're smart, and kind, and funny... and really pretty....

    Summary

    Ma'alin, the Dalish Inquisitor, finds there are more questions than answers when it comes to Solas. He challenges her in ways no one ever has, and tempts her to reveal the secrets she keeps closely hidden. No damsel in distress, she is not afraid to go toe-to-toe with the mage and break down his cool barriers.

    Solas finds himself curious and intrigued with her reserved nature and quiet, mischievous smile. What he finds, the woman he discovers, challenges him and leaves him wanting more, daring to hope, considering a world where they could all be real like her, and discovering their lives are more intertwined than he could have ever imagined.

    Is it fate or is it coincidence? One can never tell.

    Summary

    Aurum Lavellan, First of the Clan Lavellan, Spy, Mage, and Hunter, found herself in a situation far beyond her Clan's reckoning. There was so much for her to do, and while she has no loyalty to a Circle, to the Inquisition, or the Burned Woman, she...cannot bring herself let them die. She is Apostate by every meaning of the word, she has secrets that she holds tight to, and above all else, she wants to go home.

    But...Ah, but it doesn't matter. She has a world to save, a Breach to close, and so many other things to concern herself with that she does not quite have the time to bother with playing nice. She wants to go home, and no blond shemlen templar is going to distract her from that. Not at all.

    Summary

    The Inquisition has been disbanded and Teithranen Lavellan, ex-Inquisitor has had enough of this long distance relationship thing. He's coming to Tevinter for good. Dorian isn't sure about this, it's still very dangerous for a Dalish Elf in Tevinter, but how much choice does he really have?

    ---

     

    “I don’t have to wear fancy crap anymore if I don’t want to. Besides, traveling only gets your clothes dirty, so why wear my best? Also I was foraging as I went.”
    “Because of course you were.” Dorian clasped his hands together at the small of Tei’s back. “And why did you bring the entire contents of the wilderness with you, pray tell?” Dorian watched as Souren continued to carry all manner of unidentified plant matter into the house.
    “Because your tiny courtyard garden is pathetic enough as to be nonexistent. And if I’m staying here I needed supplies to get it set up well. And you know how I feel about native Tevinter elfroot.”
    “Yes, you called it a pale impostor of a once noble plant."

    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.
