    Summary

    Alistair, bastard son of the late King Maric, was a Grey Warden and the lover of fellow Warden, Rowan Cousland. After a rather spectacular and very public argument in front of the banns and nobles gathered for a Landsmeet, their relationship was not only ended, Alistair was exiled from Ferelden. He ended up in the Free Marches, a sellsword and a wandering drunk, until Bann Teagan Guerrin located him and brought him back to Ferelden under strict conditions. As Alistair sobers up he realises that the thing he wants most, despite his mixed feelings and lingering resentment, is to make up for what he did, and maybe win the forgiveness of the woman he still loves, who is now Commander of the Grey and Hero of Ferelden.

    This is a companion piece to my much longer fic, Twisty Paths of Fate. Reading that is not necessary to get this, though this starts around Chapter 85 of that one if you're interested.

    This is also a different style of storytelling for me, being first person and not always chronological, and the narrator may or may not be entirely reliable... ;-)

    Summary

    When the new Commander of the Grey was told that there was a thief waiting for her judgement, she certainly didn't expect that person to be find her childhood crush. Despite the years between the present and the day they last met, she remembers vividly how she watched him train in the courtyard with her brother. Question is, does he remember her?

    Summary

    The untold story of the Vaels of Starkhaven--a story of friends and family, love and loss, disgrace and redemption.

    "[...] sometimes I just want to escape. I just… booze helps. Makes the pain go away. Sometimes the women do, too. But more than anything, I want to be anywhere but here."

    Sent to the Chantry at 17, Sebastian Vael doesn't deny that he deserved to be called a Black Sheep of the Vael clan. What Sebastian didn't know was that his exile wasn't entirely due to his shameful behavior, and that the circumstances surrounding his departure would shake the principality of Starkhaven to its very core.

    Original publication date: July 2012. Revised chapters uploading weekly starting 4/1/18.

    Summary

    Just a few tidbits, straight out of Anya Cousland's odd lifetime.
    Including her assassin asking her brother for her hand in marriage, an odd idea, and story time over cheese before more adventures take place.
    Sort of a bunch of random one shots that just fit together perfectly, sort of randomly placed memories with very little chance of them taking place in whatever order I post them.
    As stated in the tags, not 100% canon compliant.

    Summary

    Equals in standing and tragedy, Nathaniel and Elissa struggle to salvage what life a Warden is allowed to have. It would be easier without the sniping and guilt, but they can't help themselves. If only they could help each other.

    Summary

    Nathaniel is given a gift by his friend groundskeeper Samuel. It is an old box filled with letters between him and Commander Astrid Cousland. Written during simpler and happier times. Will these letters bring him closure to unspoken feelings or will they destroy what little friendship they have started regain?

    Sorry I suck at summaries.

     

    I do not own The Dragon Age Series. If I did Nate and Varric would have been romancable.
