    Summary

    When Hawke arrives at Skyhold, it’s clear from the start that there’s more to the Champion of Kirkwall than meets the eye. And the more time she spends amongst the Inquisition, the more Lavellan sees how instrumental she could be in the struggles to come.

    What she fails to remember is that where Hawke goes, trouble always follows. The kind of trouble that would bend the course of the Inquisition, Thedas, and the elven god who would rewrite its future.

    (An exploration of what might have happened if Hawke - and eventually Warden Amell - played larger roles in the Inquisition)

    Summary

    Modern Girl falls into Thedas (yawn). Except this one doesn't know who Solas truly is, has no bad ass training to make herself useful, and may or may not have very poor humor. She still tries to find ways of helping while also weirding out nearly everyone.

    Summary

    [Witcher 3/DAI X-Over]Ellana Lavellan has been a captive for thirty years since the end of the war. The Veil has been torn down, Thedas reborn. The elves have been liberated across the world, though there are still troubles for Solas to overcome. Ellana cares little for the riots in Par Vollen, Tevinter, and Orlais. She wants Solas to keep the one promise he made to her. To exile her from the world she's come to hate. This is not the Thedas she remembers.

    She barely heard the whir of gears as she wiggled her mechanical fingers. She paused when she saw the gauntlet’s silver palm, stamped with the sigil of the Inquisition. The eye with lashes like rays of sunlight atop the blade of a sword. It was an eerie reminder of the past, of her failures, and Solas’ many successes. The war was over, tens of thousands were dead but Thedas was as it had once been.

    A world full of magic.

    “A place, I can’t live in”, lamented Ellana. “Maker forgive me. All that’s happened is my fault. I should have killed him when I had the chance. I didn’t and all because of some stupid sense of sentimentality”.

    Summary

    An AU of Dragon Age: Inquisition in which the Anchor is passed on to Dorian Pavus after the first Inquisitor is tragically killed. Now the former pariah from Tevinter must garner the support of the people and marshal the forces of Thedas together to fight the threat of Corypheus. Will he rise above the challenges before him, or succumb to the evil forces lurking in wait?

    Don’t Worry, I’ll Protect You explores the difference between those who are heroes by circumstance and those who are heroes by choice. It incorporates characters from all three Dragon Age games into one epic saga spanning the events of the third game in a way you’ve never seen before.

    Summary

    Playing as a character and making your choices from behind a screen is completely different from being a part of a world where the knowledge you have and the choices you make can determine an entire world's future.

    When the newly renamed Athena finds herself walking out of the Fade and into Thedas proper she must contend with the fact that, although she only knew this world and these people as a story within a game, her new abilities and foresight can change the course of events and therefore the story itself. The only question now is, what will she choose to change and how will this new story unfold?

    Summary

    Marius Trevelyan is scarcely more than an apprentice, woefully unready for the responsibility that has landed on his shoulders. He is also troubled, scarred from his time in the Circle and wayward... more and more, Solas feels that if there is to be any hope of ending this threat, he must teach the boy. Take him in hand.

    Summary

    After her discharge from the Alliance, Commander Helen Trevelyan joined the Andromeda Initiative, wanting to leave her personal tragedies and a psycho ex-boyfriend behind her. She expected to sleep for 600 years, and wake up in a med bay. Instead, she crash-landed on a snow-covered mountain, ten-thousand years later. She is alone, confused, and dying from eezo radiation. And the only sign of civilization is an old church in the distance.

    A Post-Modern Girl on Thedas fic.

    Many, many thanks to my betas, Dreadlordcherrycake and Duinemerwen, who have advised me on all matters of lore, plausibility and verb tense. If it wasn't for them, this story would still be in cryo. Any mistakes are mine, not theirs.

    I have a regular work schedule IRL, which means I don't have a regular update schedule on AO3. This story is visually supported.

    Summary

    They call the flowers Andraste’s Grace in Ferelden. In the Frostback Mountains, they are rarer.
    When the Avvar girls race each other up the cliffs on the spring solstice, to be the first to pluck the blossoms, they call them the Lady’s Kiss.

    Summary

    Would you kill someone you loved if it meant saving the world?

    Summary

    Hawke's arrival at Skyhold was an unexpected shock, filling the air with excitement and intrigue. And though she took it in stride at first, the longer she stayed the more she had to face hard truths.

    Of a past she could never escape. Of an influence she never wanted. Of a war she never meant to start. And a villain she never meant to unleash.

    And the more she became involved, the more she clashed with Commander Cullen. A man she knew from long ago. Who once represented everything she stood against. But who struggled with the weight of his past as much as she did. Whose presence she could never escape, even when she tried.

    A man who would change her life in a way she could never expect.

    Summary

    It was supposed to be a simple mission, and an easy journey back to her Clan to relay the events that happened. But when things take a wrong turn, Caela Lavellan must come to terms with her new responsibilities, and the accompanying weight on her shoulders. No one expected the Conclave to be flattened in a surprise explosion. Following this, secrets need to be uncovered, power amassed, and decisions made. But can she cope with the resulting fallout? It seems like things never go her way, and Caela realizes that Varric was more on the mark than she ever expected. Maybe this is just really shitty luck.

    Summary

    Summary

    A pair of modern Earth women end up on Thedas, you've heard it all before.

    The issue is one has never played a Dragon Age game in her life and is now the Inquisitor and the other just started ‘Inquisition’… the only one she’d bothered to download. Living on Thedas is turning out to be not as cracked up as Tumblr friends would have you hope. And if they don’t come up with answers to who they are fast, being blamed for the Breach may be the least of their problems…

    Summary

    When Satan had big fights with his older brothers in the past, he often found himself locked up in his room for days without talking to any of them. Sometimes, it would go as far as refusing to eat with them or eating at all (to which Beelzebub worried a lot) and when that happens, the brothers find themselves at a loss for what to do with him. In those days of isolating himself from his family, he’d try to control his anger, attempting to keep a leveled head by reading and/or listening to music, however, it had always seemed to irritate him more and so his only option was to sleep.

    And in those slumbers, he found himself dreaming of someone… familiar, yet a stranger to him, and was practically the embodiment of what he’d think the sun would be like, and since then, he had found comfort in her arms, falling asleep to the sound of her voice without any worries or anger–nothing but serenity enveloping him like a blanket.

    Summary

    Roughly 1000 years after the events of Trespasser. Solas has failed in his plans to tear down the Veil and he's stuck thinking over his mistakes. To keep himself busy he has taken up teaching young mages as well as teaching real Elven history in a college despite having no real desire to do it at first but the jobs have started to grow on him. Its all rather mundane but honestly he kind of likes things this way that is until a new semester of classes starts. This obviously means new mages to teach and new students to teach history to. Thats no issue. The issue is that one of his new students is Inquisitor Ellalora Lavellan's reincarnation and to make things worse she is identical to her. She even has the same name.

    Summary

    Shortly after breaking up with her, Solas finds Inquisitor Ember singing her heart out in the fade, and can't resist stopping to watch.

    A Solas PoV side scene from The Canticle of Dreams.

    It should stand alone, but will make more sense if you've read through Chapter 39 of the main story first.

    Mostly posted as an apology for my not feeling up to writing Chapter 40 yet.
