    Summary

    Scarlett Trevelyan always, confident, clever and independent always depended on her own will and abilities, never believed in love and all that bullshit in the fairytales she read as a child. She certainly never expected to find love here, in this strange situation she found herself in, leading the Inquisition and all.
    She most certainly would've never expected to find it in a former Templar at that, even if he's handsome as hell, kind, polite with adorable awkward charm. Even if he was the first one to truly understand her in a very, very long time.
    Cullen Rutherford also never would have guessed a mage would be the one to heal the wounds of his past, show him he's stronger than an addict, greater than his formal self.
    Never would've guessed a mage would give him his strength, his happiness back, but here she was.

    (It's difficult sometimes, but I'm trying to update as much as I can)

    Summary

    This should've never happened.
    We should've never 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 believes in.
    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

    I'm back! And so are Cullen and Lea <3

    Corypheus was dead. The Breach was closed. It was meant to be the point where Lea could tell the Inquisition to pack up and go home, a job well done by all and the ungrateful ruling classes be dammed with their continual whinging. She was done with the lot of them. She wanted to do nothing but spend time with the man who had shown her what it truly meant to be alive, the man who had sacrificed everything just to see her live. At long last, after years of confinement in the Circle then the gruelling yoke of Inquisitor denying Lea her freedom, a new life was there for the taking.

    Or so she'd stupidly believed given the Maker was, for some inexplicable reason, intent on putting their faith to the ultimate test. Everything was about to get complicated....

    Cullen Rutherford and Leaena Trevelyan's Dragon Age:Inquisition's AU story continues from A Moment of Eternity. Explicit content and language from the start. I do not put TWs at the start of chapters so please check tags before reading.

    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. Rating will update with content.

    Summary

    In a world on the verge of collapse, C.S. Rutherford did what he could to survive, at least until a routine case led him down a path he never expected to cross, and a dame with dark verdant eyes and a sharp wit strode into his office.

    With nothing as it seemed, including her, perhaps it all wasn’t as hopeless as he thought.

    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

    What if the Warden, like Hawke returning in Inquisition, had a part in all three Dragon Age games?

    This story is over three parts: Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age: 2, and Dragon Age: Inquisition. It tells the story of Cullen and Solona's ever-changing and challenging relationship from Dragon Age: Origins all the way to Dragon Age: Inquisition - Trespasser.

    Chapters 1-24 are set during Dragon Age: Origins, Chapters 25-38 are set during Dragon Age: II, and Chapters 39 onwards are set during Dragon Age: Inquisition.

    The Dragon Age: Origins part of the story tends to stick to the events of the game (with a few differences here and there). If you want to skip that and begin the fresher story starting with the events during Dragon Age: II, skip to Chapter 25. I'll provide an overview of the events that happened in DA: O to catch you up :)

    ...But I highly suggest you stay and read the first part, so you can read some events from Cullen's point of view!
