    When Dr. Alberta Marieve Shaw left work on Christmas Eve, she was planning on a quiet evening at home before heading off to sit on a beach in the Caribbean for a week, but, things do not go according to plan. She finds herself in a completely foreign world, like nothing she has ever experienced. At first, it seems that nothing in her past or training could have prepared her for this, but perhaps she is better suited to this world than she initially thought. She must navigate a war between mages and Templars, the brutality of Thedas itself, and the whims of a powerful Inquisitor to survive and find her way home.

    Summary

    Aeryn Trevelyan has been through it all. Born to a noble family with a thirst for power, she was offered as a marriage alliance with Tevinter when her magic manifested as a toddler, instead of being sent to the Chantry as was the custom for the Trevelyan family. Growing up in Tevinter was... interesting. But refusing a marriage after being betrothed for 10 years got her a one way ticket to the Ferelden Circle.

    The beginning was fine, but it quickly became the worst experience of her life, and defending herself only brought more trouble. After two years in the circle, she escaped with the help of her brother and best friend and wandered Thedas for the next 10 years until she found herself being prisoner after an explosion ripped a giant green hole in the sky. The Inquisition had been warned about her, and she was met with distrust at [almost] every turn.

    Cullen and the Herald have a history, but how far back does it go and what exactly was their relationship?

    Summary

    ***Remastered Version of The Reluctant Alchemist's Guide to Thedas, Part 1"***

    A modern-day historian tries to survive Thedas by wit, chance, and the skin of her teeth at the questionable edges of the Inquisition.

    Margo Duvalle likes her quiet academic life just fine. Her research on the history of botany is going well - until she finds an odd manuscript in the local special collections library. What starts as a promising source for a new article leads to a series of unfortunate events that hurl Margo into an unfamiliar world - and into a stranger's body. But a PhD in history doesn't prepare you for surviving in a world on the edge of collapse, especially when the organization that seeks to fix things is itself a sordid mess. As she tries to unravel the mysteries lurking behind young Evelyn Trevelyan's apparent incompetence, Margo is led into a tangled web that weaves multiple worlds together — and what waits in the shadows might be much bigger than whatever strife plagues Thedas.

    Summary

    Fill for the DA kink meme: "Merrill has Fenris' REAL name tattooed on the inside of her wrist and this gives Fenris the idea that the Merrill whose name he has written above his right hipbone isn't the weird blood mage Hawke trudges around with. Basically, they never really considered the option that they might be each other's soulmates.

    Until Fenris finds out what his real name is."

    Summary

    Former historian Margo Duvalle has survived her transplantation to Thedas, but her troubles are just beginning. The body Margo occupies belonged to a rogue with a tumultuous past — a past that seems to stalk her at every corner. Now, at the questionable edges of the Inquisition, Margo’s life is tangled up with an organization that hangs by a thread, and its unlikely young leader whose uncanny abilities and unorthodox religious views might end up upending everything, for better or for worse. Saving a world is a thankless task — but who will save Thedas from its heroes?
    Picks up where Reluctant Alchemist left off. Please refer to Prologue for a reading guide.

    I am indebted to Qophia for donating her labor as beta. All remaining mistakes are mine.

    PSA: I am working on a remastered version of Reluctant Alchemist Vol 1. Featuring cleaned-up syntax, bonus chapters, more in-depth characterization, added banter, and many other goodies. Enjoy!

    Summary

    Rowan was born in a world of soul-marks and soulmates. But after 21 years of living on Earth, she still hadn't found any of them. Until she wakes up in a strange world full of magic, demons and (surprise!) her very dangerous soulmates.

    All 14 of them.

    (A somewhat self-indulgent fic that is turning much less fluffy than originally planned. Based on the thought of "What if the Inquisitor was the center of a poly-soulmate cluster?" combined with an OC thats been in the works for while)

    Summary

    Ari knew she was prone to vivid daydreams. She knew she was prone to fantasizing about far-off places and fantastic worlds. She knew she loved Dragon Age and Thedas and spent what time she wasn't replaying the games or writing fanfics, dreaming about new fanfics. But this... this wasn't a daydream. The searing pain in her left hand made sure she knew that.

    Summary

    "--MESSAGE REQUEST FROM BRIDGET TREVELYAN--
    >Hi,
    I know this is a bit weird coming from a complete stranger, but have your ever lived at 28 Calenhad road? My friends and I moved in recently and we’ve had a letter for a ‘Cullen S Rutherford’ that looks sort of important..."

    A mis-delivered letter with sensitive contents, and two damaged people who need a lot of prodding to get together.

    Yet another Cullen/Trevelyan modern AU. Tags and rating to be updated as we go.

    I was stuck for a title, so I stole part of some of my favourite Cole dialogue.

    Summary

    The last thing Cassandra Pentaghast expects to find at the Winter Palace is romance. Then a seemingly harmless dance with Solas complicates matters. Solas has secrets that run deeper than the Inquisition knows, and the closer he gets to the Seeker of Truth, the greater the risk of revealing too much.

    Margo Duvalle likes her quiet academic life just fine. Her research on the history of botany is going well -- until she finds a strange manuscript in the local special collections library. What starts as a promising source for a new article leads to a series of unfortunate events that result in Margo finding herself in a strange world -- and in a stranger's body. Soon, she is swept up by the violence that has gripped Thedas. There are plants to collect, and potions to make, but the path to saving a world on the edge of collapse is a thorny one, when allies and enemies switch places and wear masks, and where love is not where you thought you'd find it. And if surviving war, politics, and demons weren't challenge enough, what secrets lurk behind Evelyn Trevelyan's apparent inability to become the leader Thedas so desperately needs?

    Summary

    She awoke in darkness a year before, with no memory but her name and how to wield her bow. Now she searches for her lost life, trying to find any semblance in what she sees around her. The Arbor Wilds are unkind to any wanderer, especially one that has not eaten in days. By some circumstance, a powerful mage happens across the confused elf, saving her life...

    The elf's eyes widened, pupils dilating as a rush of air left her lungs. Her mouth formed the word 'how' but no sound vibrated from her vocal cords. The elder woman laughed, knowingly. She held her hand out, the gauntlet looking as sharp and menacing as her dragon claws had. The armor was almost flawless. A small silk pouch rest in her palm.

    "You will deliver this to a woman named Morrigan. She will be at a large meeting East of here. In the Frostback Mountains there is a place called the Conclave. There, you will find her and your memories."

    Summary

    This is a companion piece / alternative POV chapter dump for The Reluctant Alchemist's Guide to Thedas. Because Reluctant Alchemist is written from a single POV, I will occasionally do these sort of flash fiction throat clearing exercises so I don't totally forget how to write all the other characters. The chapters here will be backgrounded events happening in the RA universe, and narrated from the perspective of different character. B/c this is flash fiction, written super fast, it will have typos and will be pretty schematic.

    Most chapters are stand-alone. As always, comments and feedback welcome. Irregular updates.

    I am also happy to take POV requests or prompts if you want to hear from a specific character or scenario.

    Summary

    Two months into the first semester of the first year, and life at the University of Ferelden is getting complicated. No one ever said it should be easy, but that didn't happen to include being involved with the Council. You'd be forgiven for assuming the Dean was in control, but after his untimely death, responsibility changed hands, and the Council ended up with the bulk of the power, and no one could really understand why. With the addition of the newest member, Aria Lavellan, there were three. Calla Mahariel had been the first, and then there was Quinn Hawke, the one and only human of the three. At first some complained that there were no Qunari on the Council, then the Dwarves threw in their complaints, but they were quickly forgotten. The Qunari mainly kept to the lunchroom as part of a plot to claim it for themselves. Most went out for lunch anyway and didn't care, but the Tevinter students decided to fight for it, presumably out of spite. The Dwarves preferred the basement, even foregoing the option of dorms in favor of living down there. Maker only knew why.

    Life at the university promised to be strange, at least.
