    Summary

    Wilda Cousland, the Jewel of Highever, comes of age into a world of intrigue, turmoil, and really awful parties. The one bright spot in her life is the oldest son of her father's dearest friend. But when war, duty, and betrayal rip her world apart, does she have the strength to hold on to their unlikely bond? Or will her heart and her drawing arm lead her to safer shores?

      All Origins exist in the world of this series (not both genders, though), but Female Cousland is the Warden. All others either die during their stories or are just normal folks that might show up later. This leads to some canon divergence, obviously. Sometimes MAJOR canon divergence.

    This story's title and general feel is inspired by "Moments Before The Storm" by Poets of the Fall. The individual chapters are named after a poem by Dante Alighieri from his Vita Nuova.

    Summary

    In the wake of torture and death, Mona pieces herself back together in a place she had given up all hope of returning to.

    Or

    How the King and Queen of Ferelden solve the mystery of what happened atop Fort Drakon while the youngest Cousland puts her life back together after a year of torture at the hands of Rendon Howe.

    (Mostly a love story between Nathaniel Howe and Desdemona Cousland with a smattering of canon fixing because I want everyone to be happy. See individual chapters for warnings.)

    Summary

    “But he wasn’t.” Thellessan shook his head. “He wasn’t just a darkspawn. He wasn’t just a ghoul. He was the ghoul that used to be Tamlen. He was the ghoul that used to be my friend.”

    ______
    The Hero of Fereldan’s path in life was one lined with grief. From the tragic deaths of Mahariel’s parents, to the mirror that shattered his future and ruined Tamlen. The corruption tainted more than his health. Tamlen was presumed dead, but Thellessan would discover that he came across a more brutal fate instead.
    Forced to kill his childhood friend, his brother, he decided to give him a proper funeral, even as the Blight forbade him from truly mourning The mirror destroyed so much more than Thellessan ever thought.

    Summary

    Jowan is the center of Crystal Surana's world. Even when she might wish otherwise. Even when Blight and betrayal change every other aspect of that world, in the end, the center holds. Even if it looks a little different.

     

    The continuation of the utterly self-indulgent project in which I attempt to explain away/bridge the gap between canon and the mod Karma's Origin's Companions. As well as expanding on it. This fic is less reliant on Karma's than the last, however.

    Summary

    A novelization of my favorite playthrough with many liberties taken with the source material. This is my first posted work so be gentle :).

    The youngest Cousland child had an ulterior function to fill within the Kings court, a protector of the prince that none would suspect. Enemies would evade guards and soldiers, even other noble and royal men. But who would suspect a young Teyrna withing the young prince's inner circle of being a threat to all who wished the boy harm? The Divine traditionally had a left hand, why not the heir to the Ferelden throne. Cirilla Cousland was once the shadow of Ferelden's throne until she was released from her service three years ago. Now a blight threatens the wilds of Ferelden's south.

    Summary

    Карты уже были сданы. На месте Элиссы Кусланд мог бы оказаться кто угодно другой. И может даже, это место подошло бы ему лучше. Но идеальных раскладов в жизни не случается.

    И даже на солнце бывают пятна.

    Работа полностью закончена и даже отредактирована (ого), поэтому никаких задержек с появлением глав не предвидится.

    Summary

    During the Fifth Blight, Selene Amell and Alistair Theirin fell in love. However, when he was made king, duty demanded he find a wife the Bannorn would find suitable and have an heir. He broke with Amell, he tried to do it quickly and cleanly, no matter how much it hurt him. He failed. He crushed the heart of the woman he loved under his boot. How could he not, when he had chosen duty over love? When Selene later refused to even ask him to perform the dark ritual with Morrigan, planning to sacrifice her own life to kill the Archdemon.
    When neither of them died, Alistair thought they were blessed by the Maker. He planned to keep his dear Amell by his side as an adviser and was shocked when she disappeared right before he presented the Hero of Ferelden to his people. He returned to his duty and the efforts to find a suitable queen.
    Amell found herself in a bit of trouble and in Kirkwall, where she hoped to track down her family. She worked on building a new life, while avoiding Meredith and her Templars. She found herself also dealing with an evil Cult that wants something she would never give them.

    Summary

    The story of Phoebe Cousland, sentimental dreamer, inventor, and ridiculous drama queen.

    When she gently denied her best friend and closest confidant Thomas Howe's marriage proposal, the last thing she was expecting was the massive betrayal that followed. But there was no way he could have known his father's plans. Thomas would have never condoned the murder of her entire family. It's the hope she holds in her heart as they fight through the Blight, that she'll have another chance despite everything that has happened. That she'll find him.

    That even though she can't be the Arlessa he wanted her to be any more, they'll find a way to build a life together.

    But there are always more betrayals, difficult to deal with as they are in the heart of a war. By the time it's over, that wistful, romantic little girl that she was is truly dead and buried. And when she finds Thomas' brother again, hell-bent on revenge, she has no more heart for death and suffering. So, he can either fall in line, or bend for the sword.

    Phoebe won't be betrayed again.

    *Begins with snippets from childhood and through Origins, but the meat of the story will be Awakening*

    Summary

    Scarlett Amaryllis Cousland never asked for this. She didn't want to become a Grey Warden. She wasn't looking to play hero. She's just some shy bookworm who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and now it's up to her to save the world. Armed with a wicked brand of sarcasm and a really, REALLY big sword, she and her companions set off to fix the unholy mess we affectionately call The Blight. Despite her initial reluctance to lead, she soon comes to learn she has an inexplicable knack for it. Just one problem: Love. complicates. everything.

    This story is a DA:O retelling and yes, dare I say, a love story. But that's not to suggest it'll just be the same ol' tale you've played through a dozen times. I've thrown in lots of extras and taken several liberties with this otherwise familiar plot, and I promise this is one story that will definitely keep you guessing. So buckle up, reader. You're in for one wild ride! :)

    Summary

    When Maeva Hawke fled from Ferelden to Kirkwall, the last thing she expected was for her life to change so drastically. Not just because she and her family have nothing to her name, nor because of the strange group of friends she's ended up with...but because of the odd, kind-hearted Warden mage that constantly plagues her thoughts.

    Summary

    Talia Cousland had always wanted more from her life. She wanted respect, position, love...but not just from her name or because she was Bryce Cousland's youngest child and only daughter.

    Yet never, in all her life, had she wanted it like this. Her family dead, her home destroyed, a Blight tearing through her lands, and her survival in the form of the Grey Wardens. And the only person she feels she can trust is a certain junior Grey Warden with secrets of his own.
