    Summary

    She knew what he had meant when he had told her that he was selfish. "It would be kinder in the long run…" then why would he visit her every night with that look on his face, but always from afar? It seemed cruel to her, because it hurt so much that some nights she felt unable to breathe, to show himself to her but to hide from her direct gaze. She spoke to him often, of her hurt, of her understanding, and recently of her anger, but the look on his face never changed. She wondered if he ever heard her at all. She had come up with a plan to make him hear her.

    Summary

    Eliaden, an independent and gifted female elf mage, finds herself in impossible circumstances after catastrophe at the Temple of Sacred Ashes. After darkness and green fire, she joins the Inquisition and learns to trust her new companions, finding that there is still a world left, filled with temptation, feeling, and emotions that seem incapable of definition.

    Even as she finds herself capable against all odds of helping to save that world, Ellie is pulled in different directions toward two different yet similar men: Solas, whose emotions and secrets lie beneath the surface; and The Iron Bull, a bluff, brilliant man who seems to offer openness and escape. Both men are smart. Liars. Truth-tellers. Both hiding in plain sight.

    Then a new danger arises from the Fade, corrupting the dreams of all across Thedas, and endangering the one person who could resolve it: Solas.

    Summary

    “You are exactly what they say you are. A traitorous egomaniac, a thief! Every word out of you is poison! You might wear that face and fool all the world, but you don’t fool me. You’re hideous inside, a monster.”

    Arlenna Rutherford, a lively, just a little too impatient young woman, had only ever known a life of safety – beside the oddity that she’d been born elven. Her biggest worry: The Circle denies her Harrowing, delaying. Again. But she is about to have her world turned upside-down. Soon, she has to face the fact that nothing in her sedate life is quite what it seems. When a man once believed a god has plans for you, you might find yourself torn from home, tossed into a maze of secrets and schemes. Left fumbling in the dark, caught between forces of tremendous power. A dangerous game, the rules of which only the Dread Wolf might fully understand.

    No-frills summary: Post-Trespasser, Beauty and the Beast theme, Abduction theme, Lore & Magic rich, (somewhat) Slow Burn Romance story, with Angst and Feels and much Solas-Drama. Of course, tension and some sexy times! First person POV. Contains major Spoilers to the first part of the series Resolution, but can be read independently.

    Summary

    Just a quick scene of Hal’s days long before he came to be at the Conclave or with the Inquisition. I’m figuring that he’s probably 19-20 in this scene, so he’s not been away from his Clan for very long.

    Very heavy on my personal Dalish HC’s.

    Summary

    “A year ago, the only living thing that kept me company was my wolf, who I raised from a scraggly bag of bones to be my dearest friend. That my life would come to this… This journey through fire, bedlam and nightmare. That my destiny would intertwine with yours, to carry me through it all. It seems like a dream, a phantasm, a mirage I have yet to believe. And yet I live it each day, so for heaven’s sake, don’t let me wake.”

    Following the destruction of Haven, Shenlira Lavellan feels haunted by vivid nightmares. Having been First Hunter to the clan, she has lived a solitary life marked by journeys through the untamed wilds for as long as she'd known. In the course of managing her responsibilities, she grows closer to her military Commander, Cullen Rutherford. But the hardships of war and great personal secrets lay many stones into the path of their relationship. And behind it all, slowly and patiently, a sinister plot unravels, threatening to tear their bond apart...
    No-Frills-Summary: Lore-Rich, mostly Canon-Compliant Slow-Burn Romance story with much feels, suspense and tension and a few select sexy times. About one third relationship development "build-up", the rest is an elaborate Mystery/Adventure-Plot.

    When they were kind, the people flourished. When they were angry, the city went untarnished. None of them—not even Elgar'nan—would threaten the purity of Arlathan.

    Summary

    Elisara Tarael Lavellan is smart, independent, and generally pretty wise, but she also has quite a temper... it makes for a beautifully hot mess when you throw her and Solas together. It doesn't hurt to occasionally have Dorian, Blackwall, Varric, or Cassandra jumping in as well. Solas does yoga, Dorian dreams of Solas, and Elisara tells campfire tales - lots of good bits for a story!

    Feedback is welcome! There are some departures from canon, but I have mostly added or redirected canon material/events rather than completely changing it.

    Writing Masterpost, organized by main character.

    Thank you to both guests and AO3 members for the kudos so far! It's nice to know that someone other than me enjoys this.

     

    Update: As of Sept 11, I'm pausing work on A Long Hunt to heavily revise chapters 1 & 2. Some helpful feedback from DAFan7711 revealed issues that I want to resolve before moving forward. It'll be back soon, new and improved! In the meantime, check out Lost Halla if you would like to meet a character that won't show up until Chapter 5 of A Long Hunt.

    Summary

    More Dalish Tales is a series of one-shots. In each installment, Old Auntie Lavellan tells a story about a different set of elven gods. Like all the best legends, they're full of questionable history and bad life lessons.

    Previously, Auntie Lavellan has told a story about the twins, a story about Andruil and Elgar'nan, and a story about June, Mythal, Ghilan'nain, and Sylaise.

    Hmmmm. Who else could she possibly have a story about?

    Summary

    A brief codex entry written by Lady Athenvera Lavellan during her stay in Haven. Shortly after her ascension to the role of Herald, the Inquisitor spoke of her nervous maladies and her first interaction with Commander Cullen Rutherford, leader of the Inquisition's forces. The brief moment alone and the reassuring words shared between two near-strangers sparks a romance that has come to define an age. (A sweet and simple fluff. Part of a larger collection).

    Summary

    As the Inquisition begins to rise with a very new, very Elven leader, they catch the eye of Gordon Blackwall, a Grey Warden from the Free Marches. As he and the Inquisitor get cozy, the world around them literally begins to fall apart. Through battling demons, darkspawn, and a blessed little accident, the two must overcome every obstacle thrown at them if they want to come out of this thing alive...and to protect that little accident created one drunken night in the barn? They'd damn well give everything. Maybe they will.

    (And yes, the title is a pun dealing with the song "Come What May" from Moulin Rouge and the name of my inquisitor, don't judge me xD)
