    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

    Karida had been resigned to her lot in Denerim’s Alienage, keeping her head down and retaliating in her own secret way—until that day she couldn’t stand it anymore. So what if the world was ending? Her life had been forfeit, and now with a second chance at it, she was determined to see her loved ones come to no more harm.
    The Maker must've been having a good laugh when it was decided that she be conscripted into the Grey Wardens and saddled with a duty far above anything she knew: stop the Fifth Blight from destroying any chance of life continuing for anyone at all. Why should she choose to defend a world that had never bothered to defend her?

Will Leliana run away to protect them, or stay to face her guilt and her desires?

    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.

    This isn't going to be a sunshine and rainbows kind of story, folks. I'm going for bittersweet with this one, so be warned <3

    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

    Le guance e le punte delle orecchie gli bruciarono per la vergogna e quando provò a deglutire non vi riuscì. Il suo primo istinto fu quello di chiedere scusa per essersi soffermato a disturbarla durante un momento così intimo, ma si rese conto subito che non era una buona idea, se non idealmente. Scusarsi significava interromperla e farsi notare ed Alistair, ne era certo, sarebbe morto d'imbarazzo ancor prima di poter essere colpito dalla maledizione che di sicuro gli avrebbe lanciato.
    Il che portava alla seconda opzione: fuggire.
    Eppure non sembrava giusto, non sembrava affatto giusto! Sarebbe stato come mentire… combinare un guaio e nascondere le prove. Non poteva certo cancellare ciò che aveva visto ed Alistair non era bravo a
    mentire, le bugie gli si incollavano sempre alla lingua rendendogli la bocca asciutta ed affannandogli il respiro. [...]

    Summary

    “Well, I don’t know what we should do. I’ll… do whatever you think is best.”

    He was leaving it up to her? Seriously?

    Not that Shahar Tabris wasn’t used to taking charge, but she was in a little over her head here.
    ---
    Shahar Tabris had been a lot of things in her short life. Some were good. Some were bad. None had lasted.

    Life is strange like that.

    Summary

    Regret curls in his stomach as he pants, out of breath and bloody. Blood slips down his face in a twisted caress. His hands are clenched so tightly around his sword that he is sure his knuckles would ache if not for the bloodlust and battle joy raging inside him. If there is anything he has learned in this past year of his life it is that he no longer fears death only regret. His life flashes through his eyes as a list of mistakes and choices he wishes he had never made, or choices he desperately wishes he had. It has never been as strong a feeling as it is here and now, facing down the archdemon on the top of Fort Drakon. He has but a moment, but it feels like an eternity, as he rushes forward, sliding beneath the monstrous dragon’s neck, blood pouring down on him as the dragon rears its head in a roar before collapsing. His sword falls to end the archdemon’s life and as the light envelops him, he lets go of his regrets.
