    Summary

    Slow burn novelization of the day to day of A Modern girl in Thedas.

    Bri is a fighter and a damn good one. She is determined, knows how to save Thedas, and will. She is even more steadfastly determined to save to the ex-Templar of nerdy fangirl fantasies, even if he may oppose her efforts... But, still bound and crippled by the mental chains of over a decade of physical and emotional abuse, will she ever be strong enough to truly save herself?

    Summary

    The Conclave went boom, someone replaced the would be Herald with a fifteen-year-old, and no one is sure of themselves.

    Honestly, this sucks if you ask Zoe. She didn't sign up to be the unfortunate protagonist of an MGIT, and she is not the hero material anyone was looking for.

    (My contribution to the MGIT pocket of Dragon Age. There won't be any Solas/OC or Cullen/OC since everyone does one of those.)

    Summary

    When Solas awakes to a world much changed from the one he knew, he struggles to regain composure of himself. In his grief he decides upon what must be done. When his plans are set into motion, however, he is met unexpectedly by a human woman. A woman who claims to know him. He sees his plans unravel before him as she appears to have the gift of foresight.

    The first part of this story is told only from Solas POV, but will change later on.

    Eventual romance, smut and all that fun stuff.

    Summary

    Lynn, an aspiring author, is burdened with visions of the future in a world she thought existed solely as a collection of games. Disenchanted with a world of magic that seems to have an apocalypse every other day, she grudgingly answers the call to adventure.

    Marin, a pessimistic future psychologist, finds herself in a world she knew better than her own, confronted with the moral struggles first hand. Burdened with severe clinical depression and developing distrust, Marin approaches Thedas with a sense of obligation pushing her to help. With her knowledge of this world's branching fates, she sets off to find the future Inquisitor.

    Aster puts her willingness to help and work hard to good. Believing this world is just a game, she takes charge of Thedas' future with a smile, believing wholly in plot immunity. With the support of her long time friends Lynn and Marin, Thedas can survive an Inquisitor who doesn't understand the stakes. Hopefully.

    Together, these three women find their place in their new reality, and set their sights on the impossible: traversing the Fade back to the modern world they knew. But, honestly, would you want to go back?

    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

    In December 2018 I posted a brief part of my Dragon Age fanfiction for #dragone4geday in the hopes that I would put up the rest (from the beginning) in 2019. It's about an original character, Leah, who is stuck in Thedas and has to make her own way. I've been working on this for years and there is a lot more to come. If you can get past the trope, I promise that there is much more worth reading. Leah surprised me quite a bit once I got into the thick of it.

    In no particular order (AKA play it on shuffle) Spotify playlist: https://goo.gl/EuAy5s

    I was originally inspired by many hours of playing DAI multiplayer and wondering about the stories behind the soldiers fighting for the Inquisition. Then it expanded to the Kirkwall guard, and the forces throughout Ferelden during the Blight. Who are these people and what brought them to where they are? What nightmares have they experienced? What joys and love and friendships? Hence the story of Leah.

    Summary

    So when life hands you lemons, you make a sandcastle out of poop... a poopcastle. And you sculpt a big one, with turrets and drawbridges, the whole nineteen thousand yards, until you can't even see the sky anymore. Because Life, Fate, the Maker, or whatever I should call the motivating factor behind this trainwreck of my story is a sadistic SOB. If I ever get the opportunity to meet whomever is pulling the twisted strings, I will absolutely shove a handful of my special castle-sand right in their face.

    How you like THOSE lemons, huh?!?

    I sound a little angry don't I? A bit prickly pear with the threats and all? Maybe you're just thinking I'm unhinged.

    Trust me, you would be too if all this was happening to you... What, you don't believe me? You're still unsure? If more convincing is what you need, then read on...

    I'll make a believer out of you yet.

    Summary

    “’Give me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy’,” I exhaled, picturing the Inquisitor with only one arm. My voice sounded hollow, even to my own ears.

    Solas’s eyebrow raised, but he did not immediately reply. His sight joined mine, staring at the empty place where the Herald of Andraste and Cullen had previously stood.

    “You think this story will have a poor end?” He asked, after a second of contemplative silence.

    I know it, I thought.

    ——————

    There was no hiding from it, no denying it; no rationalising or trivialising. This was a land I thought I knew so well, alive and breathing before my very eyes. This was the land of so many legends, so many myths and mysteries; the history of its earth embedded in the soil below my very feet, the blood, bones and tears of thousands I had never thought actually existed until now.

    ——————

    [My own interpretation of the 'Modern Girl in Thedas' trope, with the woman in question having full memory of the events of Dragon Age: Origins, 2 and Inquisition. She is NOT the Inquisitor. Striving for a realistic approach.]

    Summary

    Catarina Lewis' life was never easy, but she was fighting to make her dreams come true. When she finally faced the truth-- that life was simply not going as she expected, she was forced to make some big decisions. Instead, she decided to simply coast on indecision, until the day she found herself in Thedas. Now she is making choices by the seat of her pants, being swept into adventure after crazy adventure with friends who make life and death into a daily game, She may have wanted a do-over, but this was NOT what she had in mind. Her knowledge of Thedas may come in handy, but if she wants to avoid becoming some sort of oracle, she'll need to have a pretty convincing act, or simply tell the truth. Neither option sounds good.

    Summary

    "There are two kinds of pride, both good and bad. 'Good Pride' represents our dignity and self-respect. 'Bad Pride' is the deadly sin of superiority that reeks of conceit and arrogance." -John C. Maxwell

    Thirty-two-year-old artist, Breeyanna Grant finds herself thrust into a game she barely remembers, except for one thing - Solas is Fen'Harel, and he is a liar.

    Stuck in this strange world by an ancient, she must now find a way to live through Thedas' 'boot camp' and save everyone from the Dread Wolf.

    Summary

    Next update: between March 21th - March 24th
    ---

    Ask around for a go-to plan when you MGIT, and you'll get:

    "Head to Flemeth's hut and impress her with your foreknowledge, grab Morrigan and pack so you can leave with the Warden and Alistair."

    "Wherever you are, stay away from Ostagar. Seek refuge in Orzammar before their king dies. Drink ale until the Warden shows up."

    "Find Lothering and Leliana."

    None of which applies when you MGIT as Meredith Stannard in Kirkwall, Dragon Age 31.

    At least the Blight is over.

    The first three chapters were beta'd by the amazing Crisis_Project <3, un-beta'd from chapter four and onwards.
