    Summary

    (( mahanon lavellan tried to stop corypheus 5 times and died 5 times. 6th time's a charm, right? ))

     

    "No," Mahanon says, firm and resolute. "We didn't blow up the Conclave."

    Evelyn looks at him in surprise. He grips her hand tighter.

    "We didn't. It wasn't our fault." It sounds like a petulant child trying to make shift the blame at first. Varric never thought a Dalish could sound like that. Then he actually turns to Evelyn, though his gaze doesn't quite find her face. "It wasn't your fault."

    "..Um?"

    "Max," he says, "was not your fault."

    Evelyn breathes in, and it comes out slightly rattle-y. Like it was something she thought she'd never hear, but sorely needed to. "..Okay."

    He pats her hand reassuringly, and his smile is.. not something Varric ever expected to see on Dalish. From a Dalish, to a human. At least, that's what he used to think, until Daisy wrapped herself around all of them. It's not the kind of smile you give to someone you've only known for a day and a half. Not including time spent comatose.

    Summary

    Back :)

    Corypheus was dead. The Breach was closed. It was meant to be the point where Lea could tell the Inquisition to pack up and go home, a job well done by all and the ungrateful ruling classes be dammed with their continual whinging. She was done with the lot of them. She wanted to do nothing but spend time with the man who had shown her what it truly meant to be alive, the man who had sacrificed everything just to see her live. At long last, after years of confinement in the Circle then the gruelling yoke of Inquisitor denying Lea her freedom, a new life was there for the taking.

    Or so she'd stupidly believed given the Maker was, for some inexplicable reason, intent on putting their faith to the ultimate test. Everything was about to get complicated....

    Cullen Rutherford and Leaena Trevelyan's Dragon Age:Inquisition's AU story continues from A Moment of Eternity. Explicit content and language from the start. I do not put TWs at the start of chapters so please check tags before reading.

    Summary

    After the tragic death of her husband, Nea Willows (formerly Surana) a dedicated alchemist and spirit healer, has felt lost. The war with Mages and Templars had already gone too far, and then it cost her her loved one. She prayed Andraste and Maker to deliver peace once more onto Thedas. When the Divine conclave was called, she thought it might be the answer to her prayers.

    But alas it was not to be.

    Disaster striking as the sky is torn open, it was more clear than ever what she would have to do: join the newly formed Inquisition and help them mend the sky and bring the long awaited peace and order back to Thedas, to put an end to the chaos and suffering.

    But by pledging herself to the cause, she had no idea that it would also bring someone back into her life, someone she didn't think she'd ever get to meet again: Cullen Rutherford, now the Commander of the Inquisition's forces. Their last meeting had been painful and that pain had been difficult to leave behind. Their reunion would bring out memories long forgotten.

    Cullen himself, wasn't expecting to meet his youthful love ever again. And even less, to his shock, he wasn't expecting to see her with a child.

    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

    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

    Commander Cullen is very busy with the aftermath of Corypheus's defeat, but Inquisitor Luna Lavellan encourages him to take a break. Pranks were played, and things get extra steamy in the bathtub *eyes emoji*. Cullen ends up sporting a new type of facial hair. Also incredibly cheesy, fluffy, and romantic, but also very NSFW at the same time.

    Summary

    When I Consider How My Light Is Spent
    “When I consider how my light is spent,
    Ere half my days in this dark world and wide,
    And that one talent which is death to hide
    Lodged with me useless, though my soul more bent
    To serve therewith my Maker, and present
    My true account, lest He returning chide...”
    -John Milton

    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.

    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

     

    " “What was it you wanted to speak to me about?” Cullen asked as he knelt at the small fireplace, adding a log to feed the flame; naked without the fur caressing his neck. The warm flicker of the growing fire shimmering against his breastplate.

     

    “Comman-”

    “Cullen” he looked to Evelyn, light playing across his face. “By the Maker, I’m sick of titles today, aren’t you?” "  
    ~

     
    A creative imagining of how their relationship develops whilst helping each other and themselves through their struggles with their mental health issues/histories and ever mounting workloads within the Inquisition.
    We'll be touching on the main points DA:I, for cannon and momentum (trying my very best for this not to be just a retelling of the cut scenes!).
    Diverging from cannon within character dev/backstory, motivations, companion convo's and of course thus giving us 'reasons' for Cullen smut, good stuffs & some general fluffy filling in of the gaps between!

    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

    „There was ice in his aura, and fire in his eyes.”

    Far removed from the conflicts between the land-dwelling folk, Selkie has travelled the high seas on her family ship, the Tidedancer, all her life. Nobody ever knew that her mysterious powers were what had made the infamous pirate vessel uncatchable. Or did they?

    When the Tidedancer is attacked by a Tevinter battleship, the young mage can do nothing to avert disaster. Ship-wrecked, frightened and voiceless, she wakes up in a cave on the harsh Storm Coast. Alone, but not for long. She is soon picked up by Inquisitor Alec Trevelyan and his merry band of companions, who bring her to Skyhold for protection.

    Selkie is determined to survive her losses. To keep the secrets she was never supposed to tell. To heed the lessons her fathers had taught her: Do not trust outsiders. Especially templars. Former or otherwise. Ah, but when do plans ever work out the way they should?

    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.
