    Summary

    Taking extra precautions, Cullen and Evie protect their budding romance from the Inner Circle and their adversaries. Almost as soon as their relationship begins, the couple must separate as Evie and her comrades travel to the Western Approach. She finds herself surrounded by both Corypheus’ henchmen and her own personal enemies, specifically those who supported her brothers’ killer, Anders. The Inquisitor's growing emotions for Cullen force her to recognize Anders’ associations with her abused body and her guarded heart. Alone, the Inquisitor suffers continuous setbacks as she battles both her internal and external demons.

    At Skyhold, the Inquisition’s advisors run the organization alone. Emotions run high throughout the fortress with each new troubling situation. With Evie hundreds of leagues away, Cullen slowly succumbs to his worsening withdraw symptoms. The consequences of his past decisions and actions plague him mercilessly.

    The Inquisition may fight to save the Grey Wardens, but it may fall to their mutual enemy: Fear.

    Summary

    Bethany Hawke did not choose the life of a Grey Warden. For her, it was not a Calling, a desire or something she wanted in life. She had dreams of princes and silk dresses. Of freedom and being normal.

    "Being a Grey Warden is not a cure. It is a calling." That's what Stroud told her sister, and yet Hawke gave her to the corruption thinking it would save her. Of course the Taint never saved anyone - what a foolish notion.

    Now Bethany must endure what the Maker has given her in life whether she wants it or not, but the thought is always there in her head - "What if I can't?"

    Summary

    It's been ten years since the Heroes of Ferelden worked together to vanquish the Archdemon Urthemiel. Lady Victoria Trevelyan and Mahanon Lavellan are both selected to attend the Divine's Conclave to see how the Mage-Templar War would be resolved. After boarding the same ship and being introduced by a chance encounter, they develop a mutual respect which evolves into a strong platonic affection. This sustains them when they emerge as the only survivors of the Conclave, each with a strange mark on their hands. Known as the Lord and Lady Herald, the Left and Right Hands of Andraste, and eventually the Lord and Lady Inquisitor, they must work together to save Thedas from the machinations of an ancient being known as the Elder One.

    Christmas gift for my best friend who doesn't have an AO3 account.

    Summary

    Samarra Bayart is a researcher, albeit one with a small Dragon Age obsession. So when she finds herself in Thedas, she's convinced she's in a dream... till she realizes she's not.

    Given the title of Oracle (which she's not a fan of, thank you very much, she's a scientist) she must carefully walk the line between using her knowledge of the game to guide the Inquisition, while protecting herself and her secrets.

    Can she put what she knows to get the best ending for the ones she cares for? Or will she crash and burn in the wolf's jaws?

    Summary

    Time and again, the same story plays out: one person misunderstands another, someone else has an opinion, things escalate, and chaos begins. Thedas has been ripped asunder for the past ten years by Blight, war, famine, mistrust, disease, and death. With the Conclave, Divine Justinia has created a faint glimmer of hope for peace.

    Thrust into the center - unwittingly and unwillingly - is Kari Rufael Lavellan, a hunter from the Dalish Lavellan clan. Unsure of her place in the world, everything for her changes in the course of an afternoon, when the Conclave collapses, and she becomes the only survivor of a monstrous catastrophe. Mysteriously appearing just after the event is Conall Starson, a man without memory of himself other than his name.

    With Templars and mages fighting and killing each other in the streets, no Divine, Tevinter holding back the Qunari, Orlais in the midst of a civil war, the Free Marches in turmoil, and Fereldan still recovering from the Fifth Blight, there is no one left to stand up against the chaos. Until, at long last, a light of hope begins to flicker in the darkness in a small village named Haven.

    Summary

    When Kithaneur'iel, or as his friends call him, Kit; Goes to spy on the conclave for his ''clan'', he doesn't expect to turn out to be the so called herald of some god he doesn't believe in. Still, maybe everything won't be so bad...

     

    (Author's note: First chapter of a long term fic I've been meaning to do for a while! I did want to use Adair originally, but I recently made Kit and I think he would be an interesting choice for Inquisitor! He isn't actually a Lavellan, so bear that in mind when reading. Thank you! Oh, and thank you so much Marquis1305 for beta-ing!!!)

    Summary

    Varric hated himself for a lot of things that he hadn’t told anyone, but most of them revolved around his best and dearest friend. Most recently? He hated himself for calling Hawke out of hiding to aid the Inquisition. Varric was certain he had gotten Hawke killed, after all these years. In a way, he’s right, but it isn’t the battle in the Fade that killed Hawke. Oh no, she died when she fell through a crack in the Fade to another world, landing before a king who rules over Death. That king saw not only her potential, but the opportunity for a goldmine of servants in a new world. How can he resist?

    aka

    Hawke falls through the Fade into Azeroth, right into the Lich King’s hands and is made a Death Knight. She is made his herald back to Thedas, and the first target is the Inquisition. She reunites with her dearest friend and brings him to her side.

    Summary

    History is often colored by those that tell the tale. Ask about Dellis Trevelyan, Hero of Thedas and Conqueror of the Breach, and they'll tell you a tale of a noble from Ostwick who saved the world. The truth is somewhat less romantic. Dellis Trevelyan was a thief. A rogue. A charlatan. He had no idea how he came to be in the Frostback mountains or why he was at the Conclave. What he did know was that all of Thedas believed him a killer, murderer of the Divine and destroyer of the Conclave, and the only way he could prove his innocence would be to save the world from the Breach. But how could a thief from the back alleys of Denerim convince the world that he was a hero?

    Summary

    Wherein Silas is understandably not reacting well to what happened in the Fade after the siege of Adamant Fortress. Dorian comes to provide some some comfort. A little one-off that isn't directly tied to Dur'sal'in'dial'lath'in, but is at least in the same AU

    Here is the kiss that everyone keeps referencing just after Elodie returns from the Fade at Adamant Fortress.
