    Summary

    This story is being written for fun; my AU. It is not completely canon. It will span before DAO through all three games and then we will see. If you know me, you'll know I've added my own flare and chars to the story which can change the way NPCs think or feel. Some mythological elements. Some DA2/DAI players will be met sooner. As always, mature readers only, due to sexual content and violence. Story begins in the West Hills with something unexpected.

    Summary

    Shona Shepard and Liara are forced to land on Thedas, where the Chantry gains access, not willingly, to Alliance and Asari technology as well as to the power of Dark Energy and makes the same mistake as the Temple of Athame, but Thedas isn't Thessia and secrets are not so long kept

    Summary

    Hawke's life can be complicated, so how much more difficult can it be with two men interested in her?

    When she is interested in both of them... and she can only choose one.
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This is between the years that Varric glosses over in-game. Hopefully, I further illustrate how Hawke becoming closer to Anders and Fenris makes her romantic choices and life harder.

    Summary

    “Reject the bond.”
    She stared at him, “Excuse me?” she inquired, unable to mask her astonishment — perhaps she didn’t hear him right.
    Azriel gritted his teeth, his jaw set, “Reject the bond, Gwyn,” his hazel eyes held so much emotion that Gwyn had never seen before — not in his gaze, at least. He was a master at putting on an emotionless mask; yet, at that moment, the mask had crumbled, and Azriel was entirely vulnerable before Gwyn. “You deserve better, so much better than me.”
    Gwyn mused, “Maybe I do,” a sad smile tugged at the corner of her lips, “but I don’t want someone better — I only want you.”

    Summary

    Five years after my initial playthrough, I decided to play this stupid, beautiful, obsession-inducing game again and fell right back in love with FenHawke. This fic is a love letter to the game - mostly canon-compliant and as self-indulgently long, fluffy, angsty, and full of banter as I can make it. I'm also exploring magic, first as something that actually needs to be hidden and second as something that can be used in peace as much as it can be in war. Tags will be added as they become relevant, but this is already 33 (edit: 60 [edit: 159]) pages long in my drafts and I have to get it out into the world.

    Hawke didn't want to be a mercenary, let alone a hero, and definitely not a Champion. Fenris, for his part, wanted to escape magic in all its forms. However, life rarely gives one what they want - and for the two of them, that might even be a good thing.

    Summary

    That’s the problem with Hawke. He wants her so much it makes his vows seem like small, meaningless things. She’s dangerous. This manse is dangerous. Wanting is dangerous. There is no order here, only chaos, as Hawke is the center of the storm that forever spreads around her.

    But it’s only for a two weeks more, and then the peace and safety of some distance will fall between them. Once Leandra’s party is given, once he can gracefully step away from the title he cannot possibly accept, it will all fall back into place. His tiny cot, his cell, the cold water wash each morning, the high rise of the Chant in the cathedral. It will all be a balm to him once more, he’s sure of it.

    Summary

    The Inquisitor's heart broke after the Exalted Council when her family of friends scattered to the winds. She was emptied of hope as Solas's power and reach grew. Left with a dead past and dreading the future, Ixchel Lavellan lay down and chose not to wake up.

    As the Veil began to unravel, and the fabric of reality tore apart at the seams, a desperate ally sacrificed everything to give her a second chance.

    And Ixchel will never forgive him.

    Summary

    Heard Templars.
    Considering the brand.
    Found a friend and running at sunset.
    Meet me where our freedom began.

    ***

    Anders managed to free Karl from the Gallows. They fled to Tevinter and established a free clinic in the Liberati slums of Minrathous. He healed the poor and enslaved, while Karl became involved with the Mage Underground in Kirkwall, wanting to free his fellow mages. After Karl goes missing, Anders' only hope is to turn to Danarius for aid. A favor owed to a magister is deadly indeed. But for Karl, a favor is a small thing to ask for.

    Little did Anders know that his quest would lead him right into the hands of an unlikely ally.

    Summary

    The elf was not sufficiently impressed when Anders triumphantly handed him a faintly glowing vial of lyrium, but to be fair, Anders’ explanation had consisted of announcing “I did it!” and shoving the vial at him.

    “You did…lyrium?” Fenris asked with a cocked eyebrow. “Was it laced with something? A stimulant, perhaps?”
    ___

    Fenris catches a curse, Anders plays at bodyguard (Aha! Role reversal!) and then both boys catch some feels. You know how it is.

    Summary

    Everyone knows the tale of the Champion. Varric Tethras' novel made sure of that.
    What most people don't know is that he's a liar.
    Nobody knows the whole story, as it happend.
    Nobody was there when the Arishok fell, when the Circles rose up, and when the sky was split.
    Nobody was there for it all.
    She just wishes people would stop bringing it up.

    Summary

    She bowed her head low after the simple but powerful words, flattening her palms skyward as she lowered her face within a margin of them. “To whom does she pray,” he wondered, “when the gods hear nothing but their own silence?”

    Cor looked as untouched as fresh snow—so out of place against the green with her unblemished hair and bleached hide coat. But Solas thought she must have prayed for peace, because he felt it crash into him like an ocean wave: powerful, endearing, and unrelenting. Yet he was the stone upon the shore, and the peace broke upon him and dissipated—reduced to mist, dragged back out to sea. It was against his nature to accept.

    Summary: Cor Lavellan became the Inquisitor and must face the gradual decline of all she has worked to achieve. Undermined by Solas for years in the Inquisition, she must come to terms with his betrayal, his legacy, and what must eventually be done about him.

    A series of vignettes. Fan-ending to Dragon Age, since it's been six years and I'm impatient.

    Summary

    Retelling of Dragon Age 2 through the eyes of Riona Hawke, a Fereldan fugitive trying to carve out a new life in Kirkwall. Bethany, not Carver, survives despite Hawke being a mage. Does not slavishly follow the plot of the game, makes an attempt to smooth out the timeline of the events as well as fix the many logical inconsistencies.

    Reposting, with some minor edits and corrections. Sequels to follow.

    Summary

    She survived the Blight and helped the Hero of Fereldan.

    Now, with still no way to get home, Adoria's in Kirkwall and she's intent on helping these people who seemed to be stuck with no way out. She doesn't want trouble, but the heroes rarely ever do.

    This world has more in store for her than she knows. Or really cares for. The death in Fereldan was enough for her.

    But, the peaceful existence she thinks she has found in helping the citizens of Kirkwall turns out to be false when she gets wrapped up in Hawke's schemes.

    Hiya, guys!

    For those of you who read the first story of this three part series, welcome back! So good to see y'all.

    For those of you who did not, I would suggest going back to read the first one because it might be a little bit confusing starting here. But, if you're cool with that, then I'm cool with it.
    (here's a link: https://archiveofourown.org/works/28641453/chapters/70206360)

    But, for whichever group you belong to, I hope you all enjoy!

    * * *

    Now onto the official stuff.

    I do not, nor claim to, own anything except for my character Adoria. All credit goes to the creators of the game.

    Summary

    A cute calico kitty seems to run around Kirkwall and being always there when something is happening to Hawke and his friends. Surelly, it must be all just a big concidence!

    (If a girl from Earth and fan of the Dragon Age games really found herself in Thedas, precisely in Kirkwall around the events of Dragon Age II, would she really be able to help the future Champion of the City of Chains directly?
    Would she still try but in a more subtle way, given her special abilities? What will she try to change and how?)
