    Summary

    "Vehendis, you're right. The additional head wound was completely unnecessary. Your sense of humor was already atrocious."

    Fenris left Kirkwall because he can't picture living in a world without Reyna Hawke. Unfortunately, staying out of trouble is something Hawke is incapable of doing. If it wasn't bad enough being on the run, Fenris is plagued by dreams of horrible things and a suspicion that there is something else just as dangerous and terrible waiting for them.

    Staying at Hawke's side seems to have strained the only romantic relationship Varric has ever cared about. He writes letters, as he always has, but obtains no response. Brokenhearted, he works on the Tale of the Champion. Unfortunately, when people come looking for Hawke, it is his door they find. He won't draw his best friend to her doom, but before he can gracefully escape the world goes to shit. This is where the miracle starts: Maria Cadash is a Carta heiress and a damn fine Wicked Grace player with a glowing hand. When she steps out of a rift, none of their lives will ever be the same again.

    Summary

    Grey Warden Amell never expected to see Cullen Rutherford again, especially not when she's sent out to investigate a magekiller running loose in the arling. Desperate to save the man she once knew, she invokes the Rite of Conscription, an unpopular action with her fellow Wardens and the templars, who vow to return and take back the lost member of their Order.

    But this begged the question: was Cullen even worth saving? And did he even want to be saved?

    Summary

    The Vael palace was as big, if not bigger than, Vigil’s Keep. Nathaniel stared up in amazement at the towering building of pristine white marble and gleaming gold accents. It reminded him of the grand Orlesian buildings he’d seen on family excursions to Val Royeaux. It screamed wealth. Their retinue passed through the gates, and Nathaniel watched the paved road open out onto an elegant stone courtyard.
    Of course, the Vael family and most of the palace staff had turned out to welcome their esteemed guests. There was King - No, Prince Andras Vael. He was a tall Marcher man with a regal stature, a simple crown on his head. Beside him, Aunt Megan smiled in welcome at her distant relatives. Her complexion was pale unlike the warm brown skin of her husband and sons. The older son, whose name Nathaniel didn’t know, stood with a gentle smile on his face in a good impression of his father. Beside him stood a clean-shaven younger man about Nathaniel’s age. He had to be Sebastian. He had the most brilliant blue eyes Nathaniel had ever seen.

    Thanks to Kira Tamarion and Melysande for editing help. I don't own Dragon Age, I just play here.

    Summary

    There's a saying: "Either you die as a hero, or live long enough to become the villain". Or something like that. Graeme Amell has grown from a doomed pawn in the Circle to be the reluctant Hero of Ferelden, ruthless Commander of the Grey, and after all that happened with the talking darkspawn, he went to become a runaway apostate in the search of another. His journey led to Kirkwall, where he met his old friend, and found his blood-relatives. But you know there's also a saying about that as well: "Family is only there to bring you misery".

    Or in other words, "Oh no, yet another 'What if the Warden somehow ended up in DA2' fic". Oh, I know, I know. "Get a priest and marry that damned character if you love it so much". Sorry can't do that, I'm taken. :P
    Fic's title is temporary, updates will be infrequent, because I want it to be good this time!

    Updated with full chapter 1!

    Summary

    Alistair, bastard son of the late King Maric, was a Grey Warden and the lover of fellow Warden, Rowan Cousland. After a rather spectacular and very public argument in front of the banns and nobles gathered for a Landsmeet, their relationship was not only ended, Alistair was exiled from Ferelden. He ended up in the Free Marches, a sellsword and a wandering drunk, until Bann Teagan Guerrin located him and brought him back to Ferelden under strict conditions. As Alistair sobers up he realises that the thing he wants most, despite his mixed feelings and lingering resentment, is to make up for what he did, and maybe win the forgiveness of the woman he still loves, who is now Commander of the Grey and Hero of Ferelden.

    This is a companion piece to my much longer fic, Twisty Paths of Fate. Reading that is not necessary to get this, though this starts around Chapter 85 of that one if you're interested.

    This is also a different style of storytelling for me, being first person and not always chronological, and the narrator may or may not be entirely reliable... ;-)

    Summary

    The elf’s hair was loose, unplanned strands falling around his face, the shimmering white of it was even brighter in the contrast of his dark ash skin. There was dirt on the bridge of his nose and above his brow and a few cuts and scrapes littered every part of his delicate face. A bruise was starting to form on the left side of his jaw and the skin had split on the right of his bottom lip. He was covered head to toe in blood - both his and his foes - and behind the coppery scent was the sweat that brought a small sheen to his complexion. His bright large eyes fluttered with what looked like surprise and Nathaniel had never really noticed how long his lashes were until now.

    And then he smiled.

    It was small, tired, but so very warm and sweet. His eyes had softened around the edges and looked even more dazzling with amusement and affection there to fill them “You’re wounds come first, Nathaniel.”

    And some part of him was absolutely embarrassed that he wanted to hear his name on those lips again.

    Summary

    This is the fourth story in the Doctor in Thedas series. It begins when the White Spire Fell and will go through the defeat of Corypheus. The final battle against Fen'Harel will be the fifth story. This series began with a discussion, between the author and a friend, about Bioware changing canon. This turn into a theory that someone was going back and messing with the timeline. Naturally, they needed someone, say The Doctor, to go fix it. Hence, in the first story it is learned that Elanna Levellan the wife of the Dread Wolf stole Captain Jack Harkness' time device and used it to make it easier for Solas to tear down the veil and defeat his enemies. The Doctor is trying to stop her and repair as much of the timeline as he can. Some he can not and others he decides to change himself. This is the story of what happens in Thedas as events are changed. It is also the story of those in Thedas as they fight Blight, find their destinies, and take a stand. (It's a long drawn out soap opera)

    Summary

    Nathaniel Howe, twenty years of age, has recently relocated to the Free Marches - Starkhaven, to be more precise. He's taken a post as Ser Rudolphe Varley's squire, and unfortunately the job entails accompanying him to dreadfully boring parties.

    Summary

    Beth Cousland wants to revitalize her family's charity and keep her name out of the headlines. She's got a plan to make that happen, and dating definitely isn't part of it. But when she crosses paths with Alistair Griffin, all of her resolutions might just go out the window.

    Alistair wants to do right by the kids in his after-school program. If that means taking Cousland Foundation money, so be it. But he isn't prepared for the way Beth Cousland makes his heart skip beats. Ferelden's wealthiest heiress would never date a nobody like him ... right?

    A tentative romance is in the air--until an old enemy of the Couslands threatens to destroy everything they've both been working for.

    Shameless Origins AU fluff. This started as a Neighbors AU with a prompt from @sirinial. E-rated stuff is clearly signposted and is skippable if that's not your thing!

    Taking extra precautions, Cullen and Evie protect their budding romance from the Inner Circle and their adversaries.

    Summary

    This story was written after my first playthrough of Awakening, where I fell hard for the brooding Howe boy.
    Occasionally Nathaniel will say "does this please you?" when he opens a locked chest for you, which got my warden all hot and bothered.
    Also: I was planning to write smut for this, but as I wrote it, wasn't sure if I should include it. So, if you like the story, and would like to read the *alternate* smutty ending, let me know, and I can post that in a second chapter.
