    Summary

    Many scenes drafted for the first three entries in "More Than a First" were heavily revised or left on the cutting room floor when they no longer fit into the portions of Aryn's story posted to AO3. Here, I'm resurrecting some of them as inspired by the July 2021 Stories of Thedas 3 prompts. Other entries are brand-new or were scenes I never had a chance to write about before! (See @/Nuka_Honey's tweet for the full prompt list~)

    Summary

    It's been eight years since the Conclave, and he already saved the world once. But after failing to save it again, the last thing Inquisitor Mahanon Lavellan expects is to wake up in the days leading up to the Conclave.

    He died, but now he's not dead and he has to decide whether destiny is real and if he can dare change history.

    Maybe it would be easier if Solas had not been the one to kill him.

    Summary

    The Inquisitor's heart broke after the Exalted Council when her family of friends scattered to the winds. She was emptied of hope as Solas's power and reach grew. Left with a dead past and dreading the future, Ixchel Lavellan lay down and chose not to wake up.

    As the Veil began to unravel, and the fabric of reality tore apart at the seams, a desperate ally sacrificed everything to give her a second chance.

    And Ixchel will never forgive him.

    Summary

    “Since childhood, I’ve been faithful to monsters. I have been saved and absolved by them, because monsters, I believe, are patron saints of our blissful imperfection, and they allow and embody the possibility of failing."
    - Guillermo del Toro

    After the failure of his plan at the Conclave, Solas joins the Inquisition in order to stay close to the imposing Inquisitor, a Qunari who is now the key to his success. Inquisitor Kubide Adaar, lonely on the throne, ends up reaching out to the odd little hedge mage who seems to understand her as well as she understands herself. It's not long before they're standing together in a strange world that wants neither of them.

    But the weight of power can break the strongest hero's shoulders, and the force of grief can drive the strongest will to desperation.

    Summary

    “You know, I’d given up on you. You texted me to check if I got in okay, and then nothing.”

    “You could’ve texted too.”

    “I didn’t think you liked me.”

    Stationed in Japan, Cullen Rutherford is a lonely American enlisted sailor living in Yokosuka barracks. Tharin Trevelyan is a gregarious English teacher in the neighboring Kawasaki. One chance online encounter leads to many adventures in and around Tokyo, bringing the two men closer.

    Summary

    Nyssa Adaar was once a simple mercenary enjoying her life with her family and company. She entered the Conclave looking for jobs and came out as the so-called Herald of Andraste. Now, she has to close a breach in the sky, and fight demons, darkspawn, and Tevinter cultists. Her life becomes busy enough that she can focus on saving the world instead of wallowing in too many painful memories to count, of dangerous islands, screams in the streets, and the choking sea of old guilt that threatens to consume her. That all changes when she meets the Iron Bull, a Ben-Hassrath agent posing as a mercenary who possesses the power to destroy everything she's ever loved, including her family, friends, and the freedom she has fought tooth and nail to keep. She just can't figure out why he hasn't yet.

    Summary

    Imogen McLean is glad she's played the series before. She's read all the novels, she's flipped through the comics. She knows what's going to happen. She's got secrets to keep and canon to break. Now if she could just keep her hands off the Dread Wolf, this might all go a bit easier. Besides, he's got plans of his own. He's not the staying kind, and she knows better than to get attached.

    You hear that, Thedas? She's not going to get attached. She's not.

    Summary

    One may wonder how the most prickliest of mages and warriors end up together. In the journey of Dragon Age Inquisition, original character Kesper is faced with many trials and decisions. Questioned by spies, seekers, and literally everyone, she is tempted to drop everything and run back to her merc group for fear that she will be unable to keep her life secret any longer. Snide comments, sarcasm, and secrecy go hand in hand in describing this Herald of Andraste.

    This fic takes place during the events of Dragon Age Inquisition. My inquisitor (Kesper) is a mage who is a very private and secretive person. This is written as if Kesper is going through the video game. A lot of themes will be similar to most events to the game and how she will react to certain situations. This fic is also helping me figure out just what type of person she is.

    Roderick raised his voice now, “Justinia is dead! We must elect a replacement, and obey her orders on the matter!” This caused Kesper to finally speak up “Ah yes. The body is not yet cold, yet there is this urchin vying for power he could never have.” She growled, her eyes filled with contempt. She was all too familiar with people like him back at home.

    Summary

    AKA 'UST and Zombies'

    What do you get when the inexperienced Herald of Andraste is sent to The Fallow Mire to rescue a handful of hostages? A lightning rod, considering the constant electrical storms make his already poorly-controlled magic go wild. Oh, and plague zombies. Lots of plague zombies.

    Dorian is enjoying the task of honing Gethrael's magical skill more than he thought, and it has nothing to do with his carefree good looks and (entirely accidental) charm. Probably.

    Summary

    Anastasia Trevelyan, the Herald of Andraste, received a huge shock when a stranger was appointed to the position of Inquisitor. Shortly after the destruction of Haven, the other heads of the Inquisition gave into their fears and made an alliance with Orlais and the Chantry. They also agreed to appoint a Chevalier picked by their new allies as Inquisitor. Anastasia was not happy, as a Free Mage, she didn't trust the Chantry. When her fears are justified, she will leave the Inquisition itself.

    Summary

    Cullen has come to Val Royeaux as part of the Inquisitor’s retinue to celebrate Empress Celene’s birthday. The week-long celebration is being held in conjunction with a conclave, assembled under the auspices of Divine Victoria. The Divine has asked the Inquisition - having proven their impartiality by recruiting both templars and mages to their ranks - to enforce the peace at the conclave.

    A cross-section of Thedosian society descends upon the heart of the Orlesian Empire, preparing to defend their rights and their dogma. The decisions reached at this conference will determine the future's of mages, templars, and the Chantry. For Cullen, his past is about to entwine with his future in a most unexpected way.

    Summary

    Tristan Trevelyan is sullen and grim, a frown almost permanent on his face. Years of running from the bounty hunters his family sent after him can do that to a man. When a certain mage from Tevinter joins the Inquisition, Tristan finds the one person that seems able to crack his somber façade.

    But hoping for anything more at times like these is nothing but a mad fancy. Just the title of Inquisitor is enough to drive anyone away, and perhaps it's better that way. Things don't usually go very well for those who find themselves close to him.

    Summary

    Modern Girl falls into Thedas (yawn). Except this one doesn't know who Solas truly is, has no bad ass training to make herself useful, and may or may not have very poor humor. She still tries to find ways of helping while also weirding out nearly everyone.

    Summary

    When Hawke arrives at Skyhold, the Inquisitor very quickly comes to suspect maybe, just MAYBE, Varric’s been lying about much more than simply not knowing where she’s been all along. Like…everything. Literally every. Single. Thing. Which is fine, really – storytellers are known for bending the truth after all – but the more people she talks to, the stranger the picture becomes, leaving her to wonder…why?

    Why has he been lying about Hawke this whole time? Why was Hawke so quick to come to Skyhold after hiding herself away for so long? And more to the point, after the tragedy that befell Haven, why are the two of them acting so suspiciously cheerful?

    Though she can’t be sure yet where Hawke the character ends and Hawke the person begins, the Inquisitor is perfectly aware of one thing: They’ve just accepted a dangerous stranger into their midst, and as their de facto leader, it’s up to her to try and figure out Hawke’s motivation for suddenly deciding to lend a hand. …and to listen in on as much gossip as possible, obviously.

    Summary

    Tirnella Trevelyan never wanted anything but her freedom. Now she is the center of the end of the world, and she is going to make it everyone's problem. It would help if she knew what she was doing, even a little bit. With an endless list of problems to fix, and a lifetime of loss to avoid thinking about, she hardly has time to consider the bonds she is making with the people forced to work alongside her. So long as the smug Templar that commands her army stops looking at her like that.

    A rewrite of my first piece, hopefully better this time. For the seven people who read this story two years ago - this is for you.
