    Summary

    This is the third story in the Doctor in Thedas series. It begins one year after the Blight and goes through the destruction of the Chantry in Kirkwall and the beginning of the Mage/Templar War. This series began with a discussion, between the author and a friend, about Bioware changing canon. This turn into a theory that someone was going back and messing with the timeline. Naturally, they needed someone, say The Doctor, to go fix it. Hence, in the first story it is learned that Elanna Levellan the wife of the Dread Wolf stole Captain Jack Harkness' time device and used it to make it easier for Solas to tear down the veil and defeat his enemies. The Doctor is trying to stop her and repair as much of the timeline as he can. Some he can not and others he decides to change himself. This is the story of what happens in Thedas as events are changed. It is also the story of those in Thedas as they fight Blight, find their destinies, and take a stand. (It's a long drawn out soap opera)

    Summary

    You want the true story of the Hero of Ferelden? I can only tell you what I heard, I wasn't there. You won't find anyone who knows the whole story, unless you ask her yourself. You'll get bits and pieces from the people who traveled with her, but not even the King himself knows the full truth about what really happened. Don't care, huh? Well, alright, but don't say I didn't warn you. We'll have to start at the very beginning, but that's the part that's the most vague. Only one person alive knows that happened that night in Highever Castle, and she's not exactly willing to talk about it. Her brother? He wasn't there for that part. Come to think of it, Fergus wasn't around for much of this story. But, enough talk. You want to know what happened? Let's start at the beginning. The day everything blew up in her face.

    Summary

    As the sole survivor of the massacre at Highever, Elissa Cousland now finds herself thrust into a nightmare that she was never prepared to handle. All that matters to her now is that she find Fergus; expose Howe’s treachery to the world; and avenge her family…

    But before she can do anything a further complication arises, The Wardens adamantly maintain that the Darkspawn threat still looms over Ferelden, and to ignore this would be catastrophic. Therefore, alongside her new found friends and a certain fellow Warden that she finds herself inexplicably drawn to, Elissa is left with a choice:

    Live up to her family’s proud mantle? Or put aside responsibility to pursue revenge against those that took everything away?

    Summary

    A Fereldan Civil War AU

    The winter of 9:31 Dragon draws to a bitter close. Teyrn Loghain Mac Tir, hero of the people, has revealed a string of secret letters between King Cailan and Empress Celene of Orlais. The specifics are unclear, but suspicion of Orlesians run deep, and there are always those willing to take advantage of political scandal. Declaring the king unfit to rule, Loghain has retreated to his southern stronghold in Gwaren, with Queen Anora by his side. Fear and greed threaten to tear Ferelden apart.

    In Denerim, Cailan busies himself with maps and battle plans, hoping to stem the tide of blood before it can start.

    In the Arling of Edgehall, King Maric’s bastard son fights against the rebels flocking to the traitor’s banner, determined to free himself from the shadow of his royal blood.

    And in Highever, Rosslyn Cousland, bitter at being left behind, watches as her father and brother ride to war, unaware of the betrayal lurking in the smile of their closest friend.

    Summary

    Duncan found his recruit outside Orzammar and never returned to Highever Castle for Nalissa Cousland. When the castle fell, she escaped with her life but was eventually captured by Rendon Howe and held in Fort Drakon, a last ace up his sleeve to give his claim to Highever legitimacy if Loghain failed. And fail he did; Sereda Aeducan saw to that by making Alistair the King of Ferelden. Now, a year into the new king's reign, Eamon attempts to arrange a match for Alistair with the sister of Ferelden's only remaining teyrn. As with all things in Alistair's life, it couldn't be more disastrous or more incredible.

    Rated M for language and PTSD!Cousland.

    Summary

    I’m just a humble storyteller. I’ve met my fair share of legends, even fought along side a few. I know better than anyone that, when it comes to legends, it’s best to hear their tale from the beginning. This is one such tale: the story of the Hero of Fereldan, Hero of the Fifth Blight, and the rise of a Queen.

    Summary

    In war, victory. In peace, vigilance. In death, sacrifice. What a joke. The old men at Weisshaupt still judge me because I killed the archdemon...and survived. As if all the sacrifices I made to get that victory didn't count unless I was dead.

    They've become too complacent. They're asking the wrong questions of the wrong people, ignoring the problems in their own ranks while they hide behind a thin veil of politics, chanting their motto like it is some sort of magic shield. That doesn't bode well.

    Those old men don't know what to do about the their "Hero of Ferelden" problem. Thankfully, I didn't need them or their approval to end the Blight then, and I certainly have no use for them now. I will continue to do what needs to be done, for the sake of my brother first, my country second, and the Order when it suits me.

    (The story takes place right before the Breach and will run parallel to the events in Inquisition)

    Summary

    Alistair is King of Ferelden, and it's a lonely job that he mostly still doesn't want, despite doing it since triumphing over the Blight. When he holds a masquerade at his palace, he meets the enchanting Cordelia Cousland, though he had no idea who his charming lady is under the cover of masks and moonlight.

    Cordelia would have loved to know more about the sweet highwayman she met at the masque, but after one quick night together, she has more pressing issues to deal with. While Alistair's determined to find her, someone else, a much less benevolent someone, is on her trail in Denerim as well, but this veteran of the Battle of Denerim knows how to take care of herself and hide. At least she would normally, if half of her contacts and the nobility hadn't died in the Blight.

    With dangers in the shadows and no name for her highwayman, Cordelia disappears in Alistair's city, and even the king's protection doesn't mean an immediate end to the danger.

    Summary

    Before Alistair Theirin was King of Ferelden, before he was a Grey Warden and hero, he was a little boy. A bastard. Unwanted. Until somebody wanted him.

     

    I began this for Alistair Appreciation Week 2018 ... and it's expanded into a five chapter WIP.
