    Summary

    The day after their first... rendezvous Dorian assumes things with Solas will go precisely as they have for him in the past with others. He is pleased to find he is wrong.

    Mostly self-indulgent smut.


    "Good evening, Dorian."

    He flinched, the sound of the man's smooth baritone nearly wrenched a sob from him, but Dorian managed to hold it together. He set his face to impassive, willed his shoulders to relax, and turned to face Solas with the approximation of calm plastered on his face. "Goodnight, Solas. I was just headed to bed, so if you'll excuse me, I shan't interrupt."

    Solas hummed noncommittally, the sound punctuated by a scrape of plaster. "About last night," he began.

    "Oh yes!" Dorian interrupted cheerfully, though his stomach plummeted. "It's quite alright. I understand. No need to speak at length on it."

    Another scrape and Solas stood slowly, but gracefully, turning narrowed eyes to Dorian to take him in. Dorian's heart skipped a beat. He needed to go, fast, to get out of there before he did something stupid… like, beg. "What do you understand?" Solas asked.

    Summary

    Since he joined the Inquisition, Dorian has watched Inquisitor Lavellan run ragged dealing with demons, diplomats and Venatori agents. But when the Inquisiton needs to get the Dalish apostate ready to be plunged into Orlais' Grand Game at the Winter Palace, it's Dorian and Josephine that have their work cut out for them.

    Summary

    Dorian knew, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that he had an unhealthy obsession with the Iron Bull. Maybe it was his muscles, maybe it was the scars, maybe it was the gravelly voice... It didn't really matter what it was because Dorian wasn't stupid enough to act on it.

    And, if he was lucky, the Iron Bull wouldn't notice.

    Summary

    Of course Dorian knew about Vivazzi Plaza, where the dancers performed for the masses. Where the incense calmed the mind and the allure of the swaying and undulating bodies drew the crowds in. Why wouldn't he remember when he'd been a dancer himself.

    But that was behind him now, or so he thought until his old dancing group came to Skyhold to perform.

    Summary

    It can hardly be said that Lavellan doesn't know how to push Solas' buttons.

    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 a child ended up touching the Orb? How can people deal with a Herald that is only six years old? Can the world be saved?
    That's what I intend to find out.
    The story shows the point of view of many characters, but it focuses on Solas and the little one. Maybe he will be like a father to her?

    Summary

    "Despite his odd sort of charisma, the Inquisitor remained a man who wasn’t so easy to sum up. A truly fascinating southern curiosity, for all that might entail."

    Or... A series of missing scenes chronicling the developing relationship between Lord Inquisitor Cadash and Dorian Pavus: two perfectly well-adjusted men who would just rather not talk about their feelings.

    Summary

    Dorian just wants to do the right thing and get the mess in the sky dealt with, perhaps prevent a few of his idiot countrymen from ending the world, if necessary. This is somewhat complicated by the presence of Andraste's Herald, a tall, surly elf that can't seem to decide whether he wants to kiss Dorian or punch him.

    Summary

    Cullen drums a beat on the wooden table, puts his hands on his lap when he realizes he's doing it. "I have a confession to make."
    "If it's of your nature, then I'm sad to admit there's nothing to be confessed. I'm no human either, but the horns and the tail might've given it away."
    Cullen shakes his head with a small smile, but the red blotches on his cheeks don't fade away. "Not that. I, um, I was told in my dreams that I would find you."
    Dorian raises his eyebrows. "Not the worst pick-up line I've heard in this place."
    "No, it wasn't a pick-up line. I mean, it could be, because you're really attractive, but— oh, I'm making this worst, aren't I?"

    Summary

    “Wait, are you seriously asking me to be a bodyguard of a Tevinter mage?”
    “Yes.”
    “Oh, this is just adorable,” Fenris scoffed and emptied his glass. “You must be really desperate.”

    In other words, the Inquisitor assigns Fenris to guard Dorian when he's changing Tevinter while Felix and the Inquisition keep their fingers crossed and Varric is monetising Fenris' every good decision (first: not killing the mage on the spot). Dorian discovers Fenris is no longer the elf he once saw at the party and guiltily dreamed about in his teenage years and Fenris is forced to either change his opinions on Tevinter mages or add a special "Dorian Pavus" entry to his inner dictionary.

    Summary

    Inquisitor Ellana has been gathering allies for the battle against Corypheus, but dithering about the topic of religion hasn't earned her any favors, especially not from the elves. The Dalish clans of Thedas are far-flung and disjointed, but all feel uneasy about the ascension of Clan Lavellan's First to the top of an organization so closely related to the Chantry. When presented with an opportunity to cement a Dalish-Inquisition alliance and unite several clans, will Ellana find the benefits worth the personal cost? Can her newfound friends convince her to follow her heart instead?
