    Summary

    “What is it that you do not like about him?” Josephine asks suddenly, and Ellinor looks at her, open-mouthed. Scandalized.

    “What is it—that I don’t like?” she sputters. “It’s Cullen who doesn’t like me! He—he chastises me. He underestimates me. He’s always in a bad mood and—and he just…” She takes a deep breath. Stop it, she thinks; she’s let her emotions get the best of her. A rare loss of control. She smooths her jacket instinctively. “He looks at me and he sees a highborn girl with nothing to offer the Inquisition but a mark on my hand. He judges me entirely by who I was. Not by who I’m trying to be.”

    Summary

    Tamsyn Ashworth's life is turned upside down when reality is destroyed by an apocalyptic event and replaced with a world she only knows through video games. With no applicable skills, she bargains for her protection in the only way she knows how - with her knowledge of the future.

    But if she wants the story to go as she thinks it should, then she must keep many, many secrets.

    Even those of their enemies.

    Will she manage to survive in this new world she must call home, or will her honesty about herself ultimately be her undoing?

    Summary

    Haunted by the mistakes of her past, Evana Lavellan feels (reluctantly) compelled to stay and help the newly dubbed "Inquisition" close the Breach. But no longer than that. After all, they only care for her welfare because of the mark on her hand.

    Unfortunately, every mission seems to take her further away from her goal instead of closer to it. But each refugee saved and disaster averted also brings with it a sliver of tranquility, a fleeting taste of atonement for past wrongs. Surrounded by new people - new friends - she discovers a wider world than she'd ever imagined with her clan, a world in which she has the power to improve the lives of both elves AND mages.

    Strangest of all, she finds herself drawn to an unlikely friend and confidant in Inquisition's ex-templar military advisor who, like her, is all too familiar with the bitter taste of regret... and the fragile touch of hope.

    **Game scenes/dialogue included but also tons of original "in-between" moments, dialogue, character development and introspection. Super mild AU for shuffling conversation locations and tweaking the order of events. Quizzy is my own. Rating will update with content.

    Summary

    In a world on the verge of collapse, C.S. Rutherford did what he could to survive, at least until a routine case led him down a path he never expected to cross, and a dame with dark verdant eyes and a sharp wit strode into his office.

    With nothing as it seemed, including her, perhaps it all wasn’t as hopeless as he thought.

    Summary

    Cullen wouldn't say he hates mages, not anymore, but he can't see himself ever trusting one again. Dorian is no exception. The mage is off-color, self-important, and all together too much for Cullen to deal with. So why is it that every time Cullen is at his lowest, Dorian seems to be the only person by his side?

    7/6/2018 : Edits to Chapters 3 and 5. Also, now with art!

    1/17/19: Major edits made including changing this fic from present tense to past tense. Since I wrote Parsley in past tense, I felt that this one should be as well for consistency. If you spot any random present tense remaining, please let me know!

    Summary

    Maxiana Trevelyan thought she would live the rest of her days within Ostwick Circle's walls when she ends up at the Conclave to tell the Divine her story. After being the only survivor of a magical explosion, she finds herself drawn to the Commander of the Inquisition that keeps her.

    All Cullen ever wanted was to help others. He became a Templar but things went seriously wrong and he found his way out and into the Inquisition. When the Conclave is destroyed, he watches a beautiful woman fall from the Fade that he struggles to sort his feelings out for.

    ✍🏼This is my first fanfic and I'm learning. Some parts follow the game, others deviate.
    📆Will be posting at least one chapter each week!
    🎶Music is a big influence for me, each chapter is inspired by a song and carries the same title. Spotify Playlist for those who'd like to listen. Will be adding songs as I write.
    📌I'm also a very visual person, every chapter has a few Pinterest pins to go along with it.
    💜Kudos and comments greatly appreciated!

    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. The Inquisitor's growing emotions for Cullen force her to recognize the 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

    While writing Firebreather, my main story within this series, I introduced my other male OC, Aridhel. After that, lots of ideas and "what if"s began pouring from my mind, and now here we are, and his grumpy ass has a companion fic of his very own.

    Aridhel Lavellan is not the Herald of Andraste nor the Inquisitor. No, but the man he thought he'd spend the rest of his life with has certainly taken up the mantle and a new Tevinter armpiece, much to his surprise. And what's more, he has some glowing green scar upon his hand that seems to be the key to ending all the chaos breaking out across Thedas. Once their clan is extinguished due to a fatal judgement call on Felan's part, Aridhel is the last Lavellan standing in Wycome, though greatly wounded. His grave mistrust and loathing of humans grows with each passing day as he makes the journey to Skyhold. Once there, he makes a grand entrance, butting heads with Felan and all around him, but especially the commander of the Inquisition's forces, Cullen Rutherford. Now, Aridhel must learn the horrific truths a nomadic lifestyle hid from him as holes are punched through the Veil around Thedas and a darkspawn magister tries to play at being a god. Peachy-fucking-keen, all that.

    Summary

    Athenna Lavellan never saw herself as much of a leader. When fate rears its ugly head, however, she is thrown into a place filled to the brim with shems calling her the Herald of Andraste. She has no choice now but to step up and save the world. She learns she is not alone when she gains the friendships of an unlikely group of heroes and a charming commander.

    This story is a novelization of DAI with a strong focus on the Cullen/Lavellan relationship.

    Some plot changes, scenes moved/replaced with original writing. I tried to stray from word by word DAI and put my own little twist on it. Please enjoy!

    Summary

    Scarlett Trevelyan always, confident, clever and independent always depended on her own will and abilities, never believed in love and all that bullshit in the fairytales she read as a child. She certainly never expected to find love here, in this strange situation she found herself in, leading the Inquisition and all.
    She most certainly would've never expected to find it in a former Templar at that, even if he's handsome as hell, kind, polite with adorable awkward charm. Even if he was the first one to truly understand her in a very, very long time.
    Cullen Rutherford also never would have guessed a mage would be the one to heal the wounds of his past, show him he's stronger than an addict, greater than his formal self.
    Never would've guessed a mage would give him his strength, his happiness back, but here she was.

    Summary

    "Unharrowed” is a prequel to Inquisition. It is Part 1 of 3, where Part 1 is mildly AU before resuming Canon events for Parts 2 and 3.

    "Ellaria Trevelyan, an unharrowed mage, has escaped Ostwick for the last time. They’d put her to the Rite or to death if she weren’t of noble blood. Instead, the Ostwick Circle has begged Acting Knight-Commander Cullen to see if there’s anything he can do with her. Ellaria, already terrified of the mistreatment she’s suffered by Templars is reluctant to open up, just as Cullen--who doesn’t want a repeat of Solona Amell on his hands--tries to keep her at arm's length. But they just can’t seem to stay away from each other.
