    Summary

    Elissa Cousland never expected to be a Grey Warden, but she doesn’t mind it. She can fight evil, develop her gift from her mother’s bloodline to call upon wolves, and pursue real love rather than fulfilling some grim noble duty. She has never been attracted to men, so that freedom matters to her. She just wishes her conscription had not corresponded with the loss of her whole family, or so she fears, as well as her lover.

    When she meets the bard-turned-sister, Leliana, she is sure that this will be special. Leliana has a sad past too, a betrayal by her former mentor Marjolaine and an acute regret from Lothering, but together they might be able to help each other heal. But the moral challenges during the Blight, the brutal game of Fereldan politics, and their own dark pasts won’t make it easy for either woman.

    (A story that occurs in the same world as my “Spells” series. Can be read as a standalone; no prior reading of other stories needed.)

    Summary

    A sprawling tale that will cover across all of the games and include content and characters from several of the novels and comics. My goal is to tell a story that is very broad in scope but deeply personal with characters and relationships with mutiple viewpoints. It's also a bit of an experiment in format. This will be a very long fic that includes all DAO origins, a DAA origin, mutiple ships (some that change throughout the story), and several AU / canon divergent plot arcs that will still be lore friendly. Feedback is welcome! I couldn't include every possible pairing, so I included the main / important ones. Don't read them if you don't want spoilers.

    Summary

    Everyone knew the story. Neria Surana slew the archdemon Urthemiel atop Fort Drakon. Alistair, the new King of Ferelden, along with the rest of the nation, declared her the Hero of Ferelden. She thought the world would stay fixed after she pieced it back together.

    She was a fool to think so. She couldn't even save her relationship with Leliana in the years that followed Amaranthine's near destruction.

    Ten years later, Inquisitor Eric Percival Trevelyan has quite the problem on his hands - a problem that looks exactly like an ancient darkspawn magister.

    When Leliana, the Inquisition's Spymaster, comes looking for help, Neria is obligated to answer.

    Despite not having spoken face-to-face for several years, there is a lingering tension between Neria and Leliana, seeing as they never properly broke off their relationship.

    So, when the Hero of Ferelden, Warden-Commander Surana, comes knocking on the Inquisition's door, there's a complication.

    A complication that's named Nathaniel Howe.

    ---

    Or, a somewhat non-linear look at the missing 10 years since the Fifth Blight.

    Summary

    Ashiel Tabris has a legacy to live up to- her mother once protected the Alienage, and so must she. It's a fate she's dedicated herself to since the loss of her mother, but on the day of her wedding, it seems that fate itself has different plans for her.

    This is the tale of how a scrappy city elf overcomes her racism and becomes the Hero of Ferelden, featuring a ragtag group that's a bit larger than you find in Origins and Awakening. It'll follow her story up until the end of Awakening, and is the first in a three-part fic series that will span from Origins to Inquisition. Not all of these characters are mine: some, obviously, belong to Bioware, while others belong to my dearest friends, who will be credited as those characters appear. A multi-Warden fic with one hero and enough tragedy and angst for all of Thedas ten times over. I hope you enjoy it!

    Summary

    With the Blight defeated, Grey Warden Amell is tasked to assist the Wardens in a variety of ways. She's more than willing to oblige, though her demon companion is much less enthusiastic about it. Amell hopes that new places, faces, ideas, and adventures will slowly bring him around, but given the chaos Thedas descends into on what seems like a regular basis, it's going to be quite the challenge to look after both him and the world.

    Summary

    After the end of the Blight, Warden Nyx was prepared to settle into a new life as Queen and Hero of Ferelden. When duty calls in Amaranthine, however, she has to leave Alistair and their home behind and take on the role of a Grey Warden yet again. This time, as Commander of the Grey. Talking darkspawn have been causing troubles in the arling, and friends both old and new have joined with Nyx to put a stop to it.

    Cronus Amell returns to help with his splintered visions, though his motivations are questionable at best. Demeter Surana is just glad that she and her friend Anders can stop running for a while. Cadmus Andras comes from Orlais to avenge his fallen friends, though he also seems to be keeping a close eye on Nyx herself. Others are recruited along the way, strengthening the number of the Grey Wardens to face this new threat.

    (The sequel to Warden Reborn!)

    Summary

    Anders swore he was infertile, or at least the Taint should've made him so. But now, with Fenris' child in his belly as he flees Kirkwall in the wake of the destruction of the Chantry, he is most definitely not. Unfortunately for him, Fenris was opposed to the child's existence, and so Anders must go back to the people he'd been running from in the first place if his child has any hope of surviving.

    Summary

    Kallian Tabris and Zevran have enjoyed their months off after defeating the archdemon but duty calls and each must go their separate ways. Zevran returns to Antiva for some unfinished business with the Crows while Kallian finds that there are more obstacles to face than darkspawn at Vigil's Keep in Amaranthine. Kallian knew she could handle anything with Zevran at her side, but what happens when he can't be there when she needs him the most?

    This takes place through Dragon Age Origins: Awakening and beyond.

    Summary

    A slow burn novelization of Inquisition that focuses on the romantic struggles between Cullen Rutherford and Kaitlyn Trevelyan as they navigate the divide between mage and templar.


    Was she pretty?

    He rolled his eyes at the thought. Either way, it didn’t matter. She was a mage: an apostate, at that. Once the Breach was sealed and an Inquisitor chosen, he was certain she’d take her leave, perhaps going to join the other apostates at Redcliffe. Cullen closed his eyes, his mind slowly letting go of all the reports he’d read, of all the people they’d lost, of the pounding pain behind his eyes.

    There were more important things to worry about than Kaitlyn Trevelyan.

    Summary

    Alistair is not married to the woman he loves. He is very unhappy about this, and has plans to change it. If he can ever work up the nerve.

    Tabris does not like weddings. She'd had one. She hadn't liked it. The very thought of having another one makes her skin crawl. But dammit, if Alistair wants a wedding, he'll get a damn wedding. A small, quiet wedding.

    Leliana can abide many things. But a small wedding for the Hero of Ferelden and the almost-king of Ferelden is assuredly not one of them, and she'll commit any number of atrocities to prevent it.

    Summary

    I decided to examine the ‘mage life’ because I believe it is not something thoroughly discussed in the depth I'd like to see it done. This story is built up from a developmental perspective of what being a mage means and how the existence of magic affects the Andrastian society. I tried to elaborate on the central characters from an early stage (my lame attempt at a Bildungsroman) so one’s individual view of magic can be understood from a personal level. I focused on three major characters to achieve this scope: A mage (Elizabeth Amell), a person surrounded by magic brought up without oppressive views on it (Alexander Hawke), and someone indoctrinated to chastise magical abilities (Cullen Rutherford).

    I adopt a rather medieval view of Thedas, meaning that the current concepts of social equality, morals and ethics are not prevalent. The Circles of Magi are not romanticized Hogwarts-like learning centres, but rather abusive institutions like the Residential Schools. Social stigmas, sexism, prejudice, corruption, violence and abuses common of the medieval era are present in this fanfiction, hence trigger warnings will be set at the beginning of each chapter.
