    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

    Five years before the Fifth Blight, young King Cailan suspects a conspiracy against him on Ferelden's northern coast. He sends his most trusted agent to investigate. Red Jenny is waiting.

    This story is one of adventure and intrigue (plot-heavy) with canon-typical violence. There is an atypical love story between two atypical adults, so look for the fluff and atypical smut.

    Summary

    9:41 Dragon
    As the Breach threatens to tear Thedas apart, the lives of three heroes falls into the hands of fate.

    Enchanter Trevelyan wakes to find herself entwined in the founding of the modern day Inquisition. With little to no say in the matter, she resigns herself to walk the path laid out before her, seeking comfort in the friends who inexplicably rally around her as if pulled in by a gravitational force.

    Four years after the events at Kirkwall, Mila Hawke resurfaces and seeks to right the wrongs committed there. Desperate for closure on the emotions that have plagued her for so long, she begins to walk a gruelling path alone, knowing full well it may lead to the end.

    As the tides change, Ellaria Cousland leaves her Warden husband's side and chases rumours of trouble half way across the world. Believing the source to their salvation to be at the other end, she blindly runs towards it, determined not to let a single soul stand between her and a happy ending.
