    Summary

    The story of Phoebe Cousland, sentimental dreamer, inventor, and ridiculous drama queen.

    When she gently denied her best friend and closest confidant Thomas Howe's marriage proposal, the last thing she was expecting was the massive betrayal that followed. But there was no way he could have known his father's plans. Thomas would have never condoned the murder of her entire family. It's the hope she holds in her heart as they fight through the Blight, that she'll have another chance despite everything that has happened. That she'll find him.

    That even though she can't be the Arlessa he wanted her to be any more, they'll find a way to build a life together.

    But there are always more betrayals, difficult to deal with as they are in the heart of a war. By the time it's over, that wistful, romantic little girl that she was is truly dead and buried. And when she finds Thomas' brother again, hell-bent on revenge, she has no more heart for death and suffering. So, he can either fall in line, or bend for the sword.

    Phoebe won't be betrayed again.

    *Begins with snippets from childhood and through Origins, but the meat of the story will be Awakening*

    Summary

    Wilda Cousland, the Jewel of Highever, comes of age into a world of intrigue, turmoil, and really awful parties. The one bright spot in her life is the oldest son of her father's dearest friend. But when war, duty, and betrayal rip her world apart, does she have the strength to hold on to their unlikely bond? Or will her heart and her drawing arm lead her to safer shores?

      All Origins exist in the world of this series (not both genders, though), but Female Cousland is the Warden. All others either die during their stories or are just normal folks that might show up later. This leads to some canon divergence, obviously. Sometimes MAJOR canon divergence.

    This story's title and general feel is inspired by "Moments Before The Storm" by Poets of the Fall. The individual chapters are named after a poem by Dante Alighieri from his Vita Nuova.

    Summary

    Elspeth Cousland survived the horrors of her family's purge and the Blight with barely a shred of her sanity intact, and is working to put herself back together again. She's determined to be useful and not get shoved to the sidelines. But when her old friend Nathaniel Howe returns to Ferelden, he's less than thrilled by his family's fate, and their friendship shatters under the weight of such trauma.

    But from the ashes of the old friendship, they slowly find they can forge something new, and make a better world in the process. 

    Slightly altered DA universe. Hero of Ferelden is Kallian Tabris, mistress to king Alistair, and good friend of Elspeth (origins for this found in prologue). First person for Elspeth section, third person for Nathaniel. This fic will intersect with many of the events of DAA, but will not strictly repeat them - minor consequence of there being a surviving, non-Warden Cousland has some major impacts on the world. It will go into extra-game territory and original plot, particularly in tying some DAA and DA2 threads together in a largely canon compliant way.

    Summary

    "We could still cancel," he offered sincerely.
    She sighed. "Everyone is already here, you can hear them milling about the great hall getting antsy."
    He shrugged, a wry smile creasing his eyes. "You're the Warden-Commander. Just say that there are hyper-intelligent Darkspawn climbing the walls: that will clear them out quick."
    Hero laughed, tipping her head back and pressing a hand to her chest. "If only it were that easy."

    Summary

    Highever was her home and would always be her home. But, sometimes... You have to leave to grow and be your own person. Shizuka while not overly caring about leaving home would have done it without the massacre of her own family. It would always be her duty to go back in the end - That was her duty, but sometimes duty can end your own life.

    Whether it be because of duty or for someone you loved.

    Her story is far more complicated though...

    Summary

    Lynnae y Nathaniel tuvieron su destino decidido al nacer, al estar prometidos. Coincidieron durante los años y las cosas no fueron especialmente bien entre ellos, por decirlo de forma suave. Antes de que Lynnae cumplieran los dieciocho, Nathaniel fue enviado por siete largos años a las Marcas Libres, impidiendo que la boda se llevara a cabo.
    Una traición y una caída en desgracia truncaron su suerte para siempre y los llevaron al borde de la muerte y al filo de la gloria.
    Podría llamarse destino o podría llamarse casualidad lo que les hizo cruzarse de nuevo, en el lugar donde se presentaron por primera vez, en un mundo donde ya nada era lo que fue.
    Fuera lo que fuese, lo único verdadero es que, cuando volvieran a verse, se verían atados a los hilos, azur y plata, de un mismo sino.
