    Summary

    Halani, an elven spirit healer bonded to a spirit of protection, arrives at Skyhold with her fellow Cumberland Circle refugees. When she meets the handsome ex-knight-captain of Kirkwall she knows she should avoid him.

    When Cullen Rutherford resolved to give up lyrium, he never expected Cassandra to suggest he accept the help of a spirit healer to cope with his withdrawal symptoms. Every templar knows that a mage who willfully consorts with denizens of the fade is dangerous, and Cullen will never again allow his infatuation with an attractive mage to make him vulnerable to demons.

    This story takes place in the background of a play-through in which a female-Lavellan-rogue Inquisitor romances Solas, beginning after Wicked Eyes and Wicked Hearts and before the attack on Adamant fortress in Here Lies the Abyss.

    All that you touch You Change.
    All that you Change Changes you.
    The only lasting truth is Change.
    ~Parable of the Sower by Octavia Butler

    Summary

    Rylen has no illusions that his life will be spectacular in any way. He only wants to be useful instead of sitting on his hands while the world falls apart. The Inquisition offers him that opportunity, but even after months bearing the Inquisition colors, Rylen feels out of place. He can fix any problem his Commander throws at him, but he can't seem to find a way out of his own half existence... or his addiction.

    Patrice has been abandoned by everyone she's ever loved, and in a moment of blind panic, she ruins her only chance at a better life. When a dear friend offers a place with the Inquisition, for the sake of her children she cannot refuse, but being truthful about her past seems... inadvisable. Trice fabricates a web of white lies to maintain her place, but a shrewd templar with piercing blue eyes could ruin everything with a few, well-placed questions. So she does what anyone would - she makes an enemy of him.

    It's only a matter of time before it all comes crashing down.

    Summary

    My previous summaries were shit so here are some basics:
    Scarlett Trevelyan can't open up emotionally
    Commander Cullen can't open up physically

    Now that she's Inquisitor, every shit person from her past suddenly wants to come back to haunt her.
    Cullen pledged himself to the Inquisition. He needs to be strong, even if the nightmares are getting worse.

    Scarlett could have never imagined a former templar helping her, nor Cullen a mage.

    Summary

    Evelyn Trevelyan was planning out her future and it didn't involve staying in Ostwick.

    Summary

    Convincing the Inquisition of her innocence was hard enough when she was newly marked, let alone a month after fleeing from their custody. Ophelia Trevelyan has no wish for history to remember her as just one more mage to ruin the world, but when her choices are stay and die or run and live, she knows which option to pick. She doesn’t know how she’ll convince the Inquisition to believe her this time, but maybe closing the rifts and making friends with them all is a start.

    Until closing the rifts becomes less about proving her own innocence and more about saving the world one rift at a time. Until becoming friends with them means starting to love them.

    A story in which the Herald flees from the Inquisition, winds up right back with them, and somehow finds happiness throughout all the trials to follow.

    Summary

    Kallian was ten when the birthmark fully formed. A wolf’s head silhouette above her pelvis on the left side of her belly button. As soon as Kallian saw it she knew that life as she knew it was over. She was a Chosen of Fen’Harel.

    Often, after a particularly hard day, Kallian dreamed of a meadow. Leaning against a tree gave her a chance to cry without the prying eyes of the other elves. Eventually she saw a white wolf walk over to her and settle its head on her lap. Even though she knew that she should, Kallian had no fear of the animal. Rather she weaved her fingers through the beasts fur and told it of her woes.

    She was a Chosen of Fen'Harel, his Ambassador for Clan Lavellan. And she was being sent to spy on the Conclave.

    Summary

    - Cullen has a lot of sympathy for the prisoner-turned-savior-of-Haven… at least until she regains consciousness after the battle on the mountain and he discovers that she is one of the rudest, coldest, least pleasant people he has ever had the misfortune to meet, and he used to work with *Meredith.* Forget demons, darkspawn, and gaping holes in the sky, it's surviving the holy Herald of Andraste that he has to worry about. Maker help them all.

    - Tenebra never wanted to save the world, just one man in it. When an accident puts the fate of Thedas in the palm of her hand though, she has little choice. To add insult to injury, she is forced to work alongside Cullen Rutherford, a man she would rather punt off the side of a cliff than have a full conversation with.

    It turns out that the end of the world makes strange bedfellows after all...

    Summary

    Evelyn "Evie" Trevelyan experiences five stages when it comes to her feelings for a certain blonde-haired honey-eyed commander. She's a mage, he's a templar; at their core, they could never have feelings for each other. And even if they did it would never work out. And even if it could, she was sure to screw it up, it was in her nature. And even if she did, the bastard probably wouldn't even blame her for it. And...

    As the leader of the Inquisition, it's her duty to come to terms with how she feels before it interferes with the mission...as if it hasn't already.

    Summary

    “I know who she looks like Cullen. You need to be careful, this is not Valwyn.”

    Leliana knows. Of course Leliana knows. She was there when he was rescued from the tower. She was there when his secret was revealed. The Inquisition’s spymaster knows just how he felt about the late Hero of Ferelden.

    And she’s just made it obvious she suspects his current feelings for the Herald of Andraste.

    ---------------------------

    First of her clan, Initiate of Mythal, and now Herald of Andraste. Sarenna Lavellan's life has been plagued by nightmares, both literally and figuratively. After agreeing to aid the newly formed Inquisition, she learns that the man who has caught her eye, the Inquisition's Commander no less, is truly her worst nightmare. However the Commander suffers from his own demons, and is determined to slay them once and for all. Sarenna must now learn to protect herself from hostile nighttime visitors, while playing nice with them during her waking hours.

    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.

    Cullen wants two things, a new life away from his past and for the Inquisition to succeed. Those are already difficult tasks without The Herald of Andraste getting in his face, reminding him of all the mistakes he'd made. Hestia Trevelyan is a good liar and even better rebel, and Cullen wishes she would give him a break, or at least a chance to get her out of his mind.

    The world may be ending, but the story is just beginning. They'll have to find a way to work together, or die trying

    Summary

    Headcanon: Cullen respects the chain of command; he would never act on any romantic feelings he develops for his superior officer, the Inquisitor.
    ERGO: My mage Trevelyan and the blushing, badass Commander needed to develop a strong friendship before Haven falls. This is a loosely-chaptered fic exploring how they build trust, develop inside jokes, and ultimately rely on each other more than they realize.

    Banter heavy. Unabashed fluff. A slow burn, an attempt at realistic befriending.

    Summary

    The Inquisition’s success at Halamshiral rests on an unlikely ally. Lady Constance Elise Comtois, a famous Orlesian bard, offers her knowledge, voice, and deadly skills to the Inquisition. Cullen Rutherford instantly dislikes this masked human chameleon Inquisitor Adaar invites to Skyhold. It is not just her origins and profession he abhors. Her alluring beauty and siren-like qualities draw him closer into her lyrium blue eyes like a new unbreakable addiction.

    It is not like the War Council has time for such a masked ridiculous elitist. They already has their hands full with a Hawke-like vigilante called the ‘Silver Fox.’ The supposed hero of the destitute keeps meddling in many Orlesian and Inquisition affairs.

    Espionage, murder, sex, and hidden treasure awaits the Inner Circle. It is a race to save Orlais and the world from Corypheus’ red lyrium armies. To survive the Grand Game, they must know how to dance through its cutthroat twists and turns to achieve victory. If failures, all living beings no matter their station share the same fate: death.

    Summary

    The Herald was delivered from the breach by the hands of Andraste herself. He was the destined savior of the faithful, in shining templar armor, sent to them in their time of need.

    The truth of Connor Trevelyan was far more complicated, and the bright brand of the Chantry sunburst upon his forehead offered no answers.
