    Corypheus had been defeated. The war had been won. But for Commander Cullen and Inquisitor Ellana Lavellan, the journey was far from over.

    Set after Inquisition, but before Trespasser.

    Summary

    Cullen struggles with memories and trauma from Kinloch and Kirkwall and battles his lyrium withdrawals. Rejected by Evelyn Trevelyan, he stumbles into Skyhold kitchens at night and meets a kitchenmaid, Orla.

    Their nighttime discussions begin to become his pastime.

    What could the Commander of the Inquisition and an illiterate maid talk about?

    As it turns out, everything.

    _______________________________________

    Why wouldn't a maid have a voice in the story?

    Summary

    Haunted by the mistakes of her past, Evana Lavellan feels (reluctantly) compelled to stay and help the newly dubbed "Inquisition" close the Breach. But no longer than that. After all, they only care for her welfare because of the mark on her hand.

    Unfortunately, every mission seems to take her further away from her goal instead of closer to it. But each refugee saved and disaster averted also brings with it a sliver of tranquility, a fleeting taste of atonement for past wrongs. Surrounded by new people - new friends - she discovers a wider world than she'd ever imagined with her clan, a world in which she has the power to improve the lives of both elves AND mages.

    Strangest of all, she finds herself drawn to an unlikely friend and confidant in Inquisition's ex-templar military advisor who, like her, is all too familiar with the bitter taste of regret... and the fragile touch of hope.

    **Game scenes/dialogue included but also tons of original "in-between" moments, dialogue, character development and introspection. Super mild AU for shuffling conversation locations and tweaking the order of events. Quizzy is my own.

    Summary

    Aellyce Lavellan was sent to the Conclave to see what would become of the mage and templar war. What she didn't expect was for a strange mark on her hand, an Archdemon seeking her death and leading the Inquisition as it attempts to deal with the mess from the Breach. Nor did she expect feelings for the dashing Commander to grow.

    A walkthrough of the main missions/Cullen romance with some additional scenes - goes through DA:I, tresspasser and beyond cos I'm weak.

    Summary

    Scarlett Trevelyan doesn't need anyone. She's the Inquisitor, the Herald of Andraste, performs miracle after miracle every day, why would she? The nightmares from her past are breaking her, but how can she tell anyone? The only person she wants to tell wouldn't want to listen to the ramblings of a mage anyway.

    Commander Cullen does need someone but is too afraid to ask. But would she even care? What mage in their right mind wants to bother themselves with a former Templar? One going through lyrium withdrawal and can barely sleep through a night? Not her, she has enough on her shoulders.

    Summary

    The Dalish don’t sleep alone. Cullen never really thought about that, until someone else mentioned it.

    (Platonic bedsharing with the Inquisitor and the party. Some very lightly implied Solavellan.)

    Summary

    Solona Amell awaits her harrowing, knowing that it could come any day now. She’ll be glad to get the Templars off her back a little, when she becomes a fully-fledged member of the Circle of Magi—should she survive her harrowing.

    Life in the Circle Tower is a difficult one, not only for her, but for a newly qualified Templar, Cullen Rutherford, who is beginning to feel sympathy for the mages locked away from the world purely for their gift of magic. But if the other Templars knew about his feelings for Solona Amell, a woman he has never spoken to, but can’t help watching from a distance, he would surely be removed from the Order he admires.

    Join Cullen and Solona on their journey as the Fifth Blight strikes Ferelden, but it won’t end once the Blight is defeated… They meet again in Kirkwall, and again in Skyhold… But can a relationship between a Templar and a Mage work?

    Summary

     

    " “What was it you wanted to speak to me about?” Cullen asked as he knelt at the small fireplace, adding a log to feed the flame; naked without the fur caressing his neck. The warm flicker of the growing fire shimmering against his breastplate.

     

    “Comman-”

    “Cullen” he looked to Evelyn, light playing across his face. “By the Maker, I’m sick of titles today, aren’t you?” "

    Two warriors in two different worlds, bound by duty.

    Two warriors, transformed by love.

    Summary

    After her discharge from the Alliance, Commander Helen Trevelyan joined the Andromeda Initiative, wanting to leave her personal tragedies and a psycho ex-boyfriend behind her. She expected to sleep for 600 years, and wake up in a med bay. Instead, she crash-landed on a snow-covered mountain, ten-thousand years later. She is alone, confused, and dying from eezo radiation. And the only sign of civilization is an old church in the distance.

    A Post-Modern Girl on Thedas fic.

    Many, many thanks to my betas, Dreadlordcherrycake and Duinemerwen, who have advised me on all matters of lore, plausibility and verb tense. If it wasn't for them, this story would still be in cryo. Any mistakes are mine, not theirs.

    I have a regular work schedule IRL, which means I don't have a regular update schedule on AO3. This story is visually supported.

    Summary

    Inquisitor Avisen Lavellan is a hot-tempered, strong-willed man, willing to make the hard decisions that will shape Thedas, for better or for worse. Perhaps he enjoys battle a little too much, but everyone has their quirks.
    Commander Cullen Rutherford is a level-headed, passionate warrior, dedicated entirely to the success of the Inquisition, no matter the cost.
    Maybe allowing them to fall for the same woman was not such a good idea. Aurora Connard, however, has bigger things to worry about. The Spymaster Leliana knows her secret, and if it gets out, it could end everything she has worked for. Held hostage in the very Inquisition she has sworn to serve, she will be making some hard decisions of her own. Will she let love into her heart? Or will she grow to be the ruthless Aegis the Nightingale wants her to be?

    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

    Torn out of the world she’d give her life for and thrown into one she knows nothing of, Cassidy Halloran wakes up in chains at the feet of Cassandra Pentaghast, accused of mass murder, but she manages to change the Seeker’s mind about her.

    Declared the Herald of Andraste, the Chantry is already against her, but there is still hope. Between the stoic Seeker and the stern Commander Cullen Rutherford, she’s got quite the team to help her succeed. Still, shadows lurk in the brightest of places, and their enemies were patient.

    Haunted by her own failures and visions of who she was, Cassidy will question everything she knows, and make some poor decisions. It happens to the best of us, but in her position, such choices can have unforeseen consequences. Her greatest enemy is not the one in front of her, but the hand she called friend pressing the knife to her back. When testing the bounds of loyalty, betrayal is a cruel mistress.

    Tasked with saving a world that is not her own, she will give everything she’s got, but will it be enough? She will change everything, whether they like it or not, but will she be their salvation, or will she make heretics out of them?

    Summary

    In which Duncan was never at the Circle Tower to recruit Iris Amell, so when she was caught helping a blood mage, she ran, dooming herself to the life of a hunted apostate, and leaving behind a wounded and broken-hearted young Templar by the name of Cullen Rutherford. He spends nearly a decade wondering if he let a blood mage slip through his grasp, never expecting to see her again, until she shows up at the remains of the Temple of Sacred Ashes with the mark on her hand and the fate of the world on her shoulders. In the midst of the chaos of the Inquisition, their puppy love will flower once again.
