    Summary

    “You know, I’d given up on you. You texted me to check if I got in okay, and then nothing.”

    “You could’ve texted too.”

    “I didn’t think you liked me.”

    Stationed in Japan, Cullen Rutherford is a lonely American enlisted sailor living in Yokosuka barracks. Tharin Trevelyan is a gregarious English teacher in the neighboring Kawasaki. One chance online encounter leads to many adventures in and around Tokyo, bringing the two men closer. But their developing relationship dredges up Cullen’s many issues, and he wavers as he considers a retreat back to his solitary life.

    Summary

    This never should’ve happened.
    We never should’ve met.
    Love shouldn't bloom from such tragedy, and yet here I stand falling for a woman many consider the messenger of Andraste.
    It's blasphemous.

     

    There's something more to the Commander.
    I could feel it.
    Something beneath the ex- Chantry boy's diffidence, something primal.
    But I'm now considered a key figure in the religion he follows.
    And even though I know I'm still just a woman, he sees someone closer to his god than he's ever known.
    Still, I won't stop trying to bring out the Lion I know lurks beneath all that armor.

    Summary

    Loryen Trevelyan, the new Inquisitor, is a musician. Problem is, she doesn't own an instrument.

    Cullen Rutherford decides to remedy that. Except he doesn't want anyone to find out, least of all the Inquisitor, who sends his heart racing even though he knows he should contend himself with being her advisor. Can he keep his secret?

    A trio of standalone stories, written as part of a weekly writing thread, these act as companion pieces to Loryen's long fic "Like A Violin's Bow"

    Summary

    "Yet everything that touches us, me and you, takes us together like a violin's bow, which draws one voice out of two separate strings." -Rainer Maria Rilke-

    Loryen Trevelyan loves two things above all else: music and peacefulness. She enjoys both, in the quiet and confined life she leads in the Circle of Ostwick. But before long, the mage-templar conflict catches up with the Free Marches, forever changing the history of Thedas. In this new world order, Loryen will have to find her place. Can she do so without losing too much of herself?

    Cullen Rutherford has two passions in life: duty and Loryen Trevelyan. He juggles both in his role of Commander of the Inquisition. Atoning for his past mistakes and making Thedas a better place are his priorities, but nothing is more important to him than his Inquisitor, who is struggling under the weight of her responsibilities. As he faces his own trials, can he also help Loryen, without losing her?

    Written from Loryen and Cullen's POVs, what was supposed to be a journey of self-discovery quickly became a love story. It is inspired by a carefully curated playlist of songs and airs, provided at the end of each chapter as the soundtrack to their story.

    Summary

    Cullen Rutherford has never had much luck with mages. Mages tended to view him with distrust or outright hatred for being a former Templar. And then he meets Helia- the Dalish mage who is the Herald of Andraste. As their relationship evolves, Cullen finds that not only does he have to command the Inquisition's army, but has to contend with jealous Elven apostates, lyrium withdrawal, murder games, and so much more! WHy did he let Cassandra talk him into this? (I suck at descriptions!)

    Summary

    When Vivienne becomes Divine, the Inquisitor is forced back into the Circle, despite her position. In the aftermath, Cullen tries (badly) to help her piece her life back together, grappling with his own guilt and anger. But things cannot be as they were before. Cullen finds himself caring for two orphan mages taken in as Inquisition wards while their dead Fade-bound father guards their dreams. In a world without Circles, lovers are still torn apart by circumstance, and a reformed Chantry still builds walls around lives.

    Inspired by Queen Takes Pawn by AndAllForAPrettyFace.

    Summary

    Every day he holds her like this, and she grows peaceful in his arms, he feels the warmth of the Maker’s love swell up in his chest. It lets him know that this time is a gift: a gift he hasn’t earned, doesn’t deserve, and will never be worthy of. 

    But even as he knows he may never, ever be worthy of it, he still doesn’t want this feeling to stop. He doesn’t understand it, whatever it is that’s come to consume him — he doesn’t understand how he spends his days and his nights thinking of her, wishing always to be with her whenever he's not — but what he does know is that it feels so good; so pure and simple and good; and he knows he’s never felt anything like it — not anything close, not even once.

    -----

    An exceedingly soft little drabble about the moment he realizes.

    Summary

    She is somber and deliberate; she smiles often, but rarely laughs. She is kind, but reserved. When she flirts with him—and Cullen has noticed that sometimes she flirts with him—it is as though he has let him overhear a faint protestation from within the overgrown ruin of whoever she used to be. He is glad, and he doesn’t take her overtures as anything more. He is too old for that young woman, whoever she is or was.

    -

    An attempt to see one version of the Cullen/Trevelyan romance from his perspective, hewing fairly closely to canon, with a few liberties taken here and there. This Cullen wants very much to protect the Inquisitor, often at his own expense. It will not be sexy for a long while, but we'll get there eventually.

    Summary

    A reworking of Dorian's personal quest with his father because I utterly believe that if the Inquisitor is Qunari no way to Halward have Mother Giselle approach them - instead they would write to the commander of the forces. Mother Giselle thinks that with his history, Cullen would very much be on the side of yes let us get rid of the Tevinter mage - because it seems she is the only person in the keep who hasn't realized that Cullen has the largest crush on Dorian in the world.

    Well, not the only person - Dorian also hasn't clued in.

    But he will when Cullen goes along to meet the retainer of Magister Pavus - because no one is touching his mage. (Picture Adaar in the background pointing out if Cullen just admitted his feelings he in fact could be the one touching his mage).
