    Summary

    "Don't be shy, dear. My masterpiece should hold itself high," he murmured, a feather-light touch tracing the outline of her jaw.

    Her jaw clenched, her lowered head didn't show any submission as her eyes pierced the man that stood proudly in front of her through a lowered brow. "You didn't make me," she hissed, her voice quieter than the hum in her head. Her stomach churned, her heart beat faster than her mother's foot tapping when she was mad at her, but she didn't show fear. She couldn't.

    "Ah, but I did," he opened his vile mouth again, speaking in mild amusement that only infuriated her more. "See, every mark on your skin is my imprint," he knelt in front of her, a slight smile spreading on his face. "Here," he traced the scar on her stomach, "here," he dragged his fingers to her thighs, "and here." He lightly tapped her forehead before he rose again. "Everything you've endured has made you so strong, and one day, you'll be my perfect weapon."

    -------

    Everything happens for a reason, the Maker had a plan for her, was what she was told as a child. Well, the Maker must have been drunk when he came up with her plan.

    (mentions of rape/non-con in later chapters)

    Summary

    Saarebas and Arvaarad have a son--and become Tal-Vashoth because of it. (Does that sound romantic? It isn't.)

    When their son comes into his magic, he, like his mother, is leashed to Arvaarad. But the boy cannot accept his father's leash for long. He runs.

    When the explosion at the Divine's Conclave scatters the kith of the Valo-Kas, Adaar loses his family. Instead, he's stuck in the middle of a war, fighting alongside an unlikely bunch of companions.

    What is he getting himself into?

    Summary

    Nobody predicted the darling of the Cadash Carta family would resurrect the long-dead Inquisition.
    And if you would have asked if Kirkwall would ever have named the most notable resident of the Hanged Man their Viscount, the patrons of that un-esteemed establishment would have laughed you right out.
    Fate is a fickle thing, but some dwarves are just lucky that way.

    Varric Tethras and Maria Cadash have loved, lost, survived, and conquered the world. There should be time to enjoy their success and rebuild Thedas, while building a family of their own. After all, if Fenris and Hawke can raise a baby it can't be that hard, right?

    If only the anchor that helped Maria save the world wasn't, you know, also killing her.

    Summary

    "Too many secrets can poison a well."
    "What?"
    "Something my mother used to say."
    "Our mothers were very different."

    Setting up an Inquisition would be twice as easy if the Herald of Andraste would let someone, anyone, refer to her that way. But Hestia Trevelyan is a rebel mage first, a sister second, and prophet a distant third. If she's going to save the world as they know it, she'll first have to learn to trust the ones around her. And it's been a long long time since Hestia has trusted a templar.

    Summary

    Interwoven stories that explore the lives of the Heroes of Thedas.

    The Legend that begins with the Fifth Blight, following Theus Mahariel as he is ripped from his beloved Clan and thrust into a destiny he doesn't want.

    The Story of the Champion, following Melanie Hawke as she forges her story from being a Ferelden refugee to the most revered noble in Kirkwall, her climb of the ladder of success and the subsequent fall. From losing her sister, to a perceived betrayal from her brother, and all the unconventional shit that happens in between.

    The rise of the Inquisition, following Deanna Trevelyan as she tries to navigate a responsibility she was ill prepared for. From having to face the nightmares that haunt her past and the terror that is in her future, she works to save Thedas as a whole while trying to separate the legend of the past from people that are.

    Summary

    "Vehendis, you're right. The additional head wound was completely unnecessary. Your sense of humor was already atrocious."

    Fenris left Kirkwall because he can't picture living in a world without Reyna Hawke. Unfortunately, staying out of trouble is something Hawke is incapable of doing. If it wasn't bad enough being on the run, Fenris is plagued by dreams of horrible things and a suspicion that there is something else just as dangerous and terrible waiting for them.

    Staying at Hawke's side seems to have strained the only romantic relationship Varric has ever cared about. He writes letters, as he always has, but obtains no response. Brokenhearted, he works on the Tale of the Champion. Unfortunately, when people come looking for Hawke, it is his door they find. He won't draw his best friend to her doom, but before he can gracefully escape the world goes to shit. This is where the miracle starts: Maria Cadash is a Carta heiress and a damn fine Wicked Grace player with a glowing hand. When she steps out of a rift, none of their lives will ever be the same again.

    Summary

    People told her she had stumbled out of a rift but she didn't remember any of it. She didn't even remember the conclave or why she was there. Hell, she couldn't even remember who she was or where she was from. All she knew is that she was convicted of multiple murders including Divine Justinia which she just knew she was innocent. As she takes on the reputation of Andraste's foul-mouthed, sarcastic, alcoholic Herald, she must figure out who she is and fight the rising threat to destroy Thedas as they know it.

    Summary

    Once, Varric had turned to the Inquisitor during a game of Wicked Grace.
    It was a rare chance, to have the Qunari sit in on one of their games, and perhaps the only time he ever felt brave enough to ask anything that was...beyond the Inquisition.
    Yet, that night he had been feeling brave and very drunk, and he had wondered, how old was the Inquisitor?
    The question earned a laugh from everyone around the table, and Varric had never expected an answer.
    Especially the answer he received.
    "57, give or take. I believe I lost a decade in there somewhere, so 67 may be more accurate."
    Varric made himself promise not to ask Adaar anymore questions until he was prepared for the most ridiculous answers.

    Or, the one where the Inquisitor has lived a long, hard life before the Inquisition, and has too many sad tales to share to keep them all to herself. Varric is almost too willing to listen. (A series of snippets of one Qunari's life)
