    Summary

    Raven is irreverent, aloof, headstrong, promiscuous, and incredibly haunted. She makes her every feeling known but keeps the details of her past close to the vest. When Cullen approaches her for answers, the only thing he truly learns is that they have more in common than he had originally expected-she, too, is an ex-Templar. At first, the news excites him. They ought to be great friends. But, somehow, their similarities only seem to make her hate him more.

    --

    “Not open to love, Birdie?”

    “That door’s been shut for a long time, Varric,” she answered before downing the contents of her mug.

    “You’re a rogue. You can pick locks. I’ve seen you do it,” he winked.

    “I know better than to pick a trap door,” she smirked.

    He shot her a knowing glance as Flissa dutifully refilled the Herald’s cup. “Intimacy, commitment, or abandonment issues?”

    “Why not all three?” They both laughed and gulped down some more of the pitiful Ferelden ale.

    --

    Note: The main story sticks as closely to canon as it can, while the relationship and my character's background are admittedly not. I will also be updating the tags as the story progresses. Typically updates over the weekend!

    Summary

    Life has not been kind to Finley, and Finley in turn has not been kind to life. When she gets dragged into the Inquisition by her best friend—who just so happens to be the Herald of Andraste—she is anything but thrilled. She doesn’t help people because she doesn’t like people, at least that’s what she tells herself. Being forced to join the army and work amicably with the Commander just adds to her difficulties and the growing tensions in the Inquisition. That is until the Commander becomes more of a friend than a thorn in her side. How is she supposed to handle warmth when she’s known nothing but cold her whole life? Along her journey, she finds friendship, family, and feelings (maybe). But will she ever learn to emote? What is flirting anyway?

    The story of how a dorky man with a cool streak and a cool woman with a dorky streak somehow both get the hint... hopefully. A slow burn with a dash of drama, a hint of humor, flecks of fluff, a sprinkle of smut, and a side of angst. So buckle up! Updates at the beginning of the week :)

    Summary

    Cassandra dragged the woman into the warmth of the tent, turning toward the Commander as the flap closed and the Bull stayed outside. “The two of you will figure out whatever hostility you hold toward one another, now.”

    He blinked, another effort going into speaking without his voice trembling. “Excuse me?”

    At the same time Karou growled, her elongated canines glinting in the candlelight of his tent. “I will not-”

    “You will.” The Seeker snapped, her eyes flashing dangerously. “The two of you are like children and you turned the last war meeting into a screaming match. I do not know why the two of you only want to hate each other but for the Inquisition to work this will not continue.”

    Summary

    Former Circle mage Arianwen Trevelyan cares only about two things: her son Aidan, and revenge. Her hunt for Templars led her to the Conclave, and the events there resulted in her being named the Herald of Andraste. She decides to stay and help the Inquisition, as they are the best hope for Thedas’s - and ultimately, Aidan's - survival.

    It is unfortunate for her that while she lay unconscious, her son formed an attachment to the commander of the Inquisition's forces, Cullen Rutherford, ex-Templar. If only she had killed him before he met her son. Now they have to learn to work together.

    It would probably be a good idea to hide the fact that she's a blood mage, too.

    Summary

    It's been 17 years since Cullen Rutherford left home to join the Templar Order. Keeping himself sane has been almost more work than he could manage, but he has survived, and emerged mostly intact. He is a different man now, and his friendships with mages - especially with Dorian Pavus - play a vital role in proving he can be a better man.

    The life Cullen left behind comes calling with a surprise visit from his brother. Branson's family has been turned upside down and he is at a loss; if he doesn't take the chance to renew their relationship, he fears they may lose the opportunity forever in the face of the ongoing Breach War. Dorian sees a young man struggling to define himself in a post-Blight world, and cannot fail to find a reflection of himself, causing the two to form an unlikely friendship.

    Neither brother was prepared for the impact of getting to know a sibling they'd spent most of their lives apart from, and neither could have anticipated Dorian's role in reforming that bond - nor could any of them have guessed the role of a third person in defining their path forward.

    Catalyst (n): a person or thing that sparks a chemical reaction.

    Summary

    Haven is lost. The Inquisition suffering a devastating blow at the hands of the Elder One and his generals. Lost in the Frostbacks, not knowing what is to become of them, the people of the Inquisition mourn. Mourn loved ones, mourn what had been their home, mourn their Herald. Taken so soon after a triumphant victory against the Breach that threatened the world, they watch as the mountain falls upon her; watch as the Elder One escapes in the clutches of its dragon.

    Cullen seals their doom when he fires the signal. Watches in silent agony as the thundering avalanche swallows any hope he had of a future colored with happiness. Turning the cursed lucky coin over in his pocket, his throat parched for lyrium to drown out the pain, he leads the broken people at his back further into the freezing mountains. Yet, for all his despair, hope dares to flicker in his chest.

    Part two of a novelized version of DA:I centering around the love story of Meira Neria Lavellan, formerly of Kinloch Hold and Cullen Stanton Rutherford, Commander of the Inquisition's Forces. Broken and apart, will they find their way back to each other? Will they be able to rise from their pasts? What will become of the Inquisition?

    Summary

    Commander Cullen is just getting settled into his new position within the Inquisition when some friends from Kirkwall suddenly arrive in Haven with disturbing reports from Therinfal Redoubt. Then his day gets much worse...

    This story takes place behind the scenes of the in-game events and is told from the point-of-view of Cullen, Rylen, Cassandra and some OCs as they attempt to come to terms with the past and find their place within a changing world. They have a lot to contend with - addiction, the dissolution of the Order, the threat of red lyrium and emerging feelings that would never have been permitted under the Chantry's dominance.

    Eventual romance and pairings. Proof that there's humour, sensitivity and lots of feelings under all the armour.

    Summary

    Cullen & Mage Lavellan's love story reimagined (or rather, mostly just lengthened). Mostly canon, with a few alterations.

    Reina is a Dalish mage with a few tricks up her sleeve. Cullen, a dashingly awkward former templar developing his own opinions after so many years of being taught how to act and think. Perhaps this unusual elf can teach him a thing or two.

    *generally updates over the weekend*

    "You never told me you could use a bow," Varric said, clearly amused.

    "You never asked!" She teased. "I'm better with magic, but I try not to lose my form."

    "I expect a full explanation someday, but I get the feeling I won't be getting it tonight," he chuckled.

    "You're right! Gotta keep you guessing just a little longer. I'm not ready to be in your next book just yet," she laughed.

    "Shit, you got me pegged! I asked Chuckles if he wanted to join, but he just mumbled something about sleeping," he shrugged.

    "I invited Cullen..." She gave him a sheepish grin.

    "Curly?! No way he's coming. He's got a stick shoved so far up his..." Varric trailed off when he saw Cullen walk in the door.
