    Summary

    When Cullen went to his home village to meet with an old friend, he should have expected the trap.

    When the Inquisitor pleads with Dorian to use forbidden magic to try and save the Commander, the Magister is surprised - not so much by Maxwell's request, but for how readily Dorian himself agrees.

    There is no way it can end well.

    Summary

    The Conclave is destroyed, there's a massive hole in the sky, demons pouring from rifts in the Veil plague Thedas, and the Mage-Templar War ravages the land still.

The Herald of Andraste, bearer of the mark that would seal the Breach once and for all, restorer of order...

    And the most crude, drunken, obnoxious bastard in all of Thedas... Why did we put him in charge, again?

    ** A retelling of the events of Dragon Age: Inquisition through the story of Emeril "Fendalen" Lavellan. **

    Summary

    The Conclave. It all goes fuzzy after the talks begin, but the sheer number of people there who she saw sticks out. She holds no sympathy for the group of Templars who dragged her and several other Tranquil along through their travels. Their memory makes Kara queasy. But still, there were so many people in the Temple. Mages and Templars, clergy and diplomats alike, dead. Yet she, a Tranquil mage, is still here. How did she survive when so many perished?

    ***

    Kara is a mage made Tranquil in Kirkwall during the plot of Dragon Age II. After the explosion of the Chantry, circumstance brings her to the Conclave in Haven, giving her a glowing green mark on her hand and a window into who she was before the rite that stripped her of her magic. It is now up to her to save the world as she knows it, or try to change it for the better.

    Summary

    Just within the city limits of Kirkwall, After/Image remains at the forefront of android technology. Despite the occasional reports of faulty codes leading to deviancy, most residents continue to benefit from their use of A/I products throughout the majority of their daily lives.

    Dr. Lissa Trevelyan excels in pushing the advancement of technology and caring for her precious creations, but when technology surpasses A/I's expectations, she is equally thrilled and conflicted. Can she maintain her position while protecting the blossoming autonomy of androids? How long can she keep this up?

    Lieutenant Cullen Rutherford is used to dealing with the worst of people. Comes with the job and Kirkwall has always been, well, rampant with crime. He is accustomed to dealing with criminals, and though it seems like he was not doing much good these days, at least he was doing something. Androids had always been more trouble than they were worth, and his opinion did not change when he was unexpectedly assigned a partner express packaged from After/Image. But lines start getting blurred the more he looks into the rising number of deviancy cases, and old wounds reopen as Kirkwall is faced with a new threat.

    Summary

    They say life as you know it can change in a moment. An explosion, a kiss, a death.

With the help of his friends, he begins to put it back together again. Yet sailing the ever-changing currents prove more difficult than he ever could have imagined.

    Summary

    “The day Fen’Harel choked on a spiteful seed.”

    He remained motionless at the lip of the promontory. Seething, she imagined a timeline where she pushed his infuriating ass over the edge.

    “A pitiful demise, if such a fate should come to pass. I would prefer to see what could arise by planting it.” He faced her slowly. “Then again, perhaps nothing will come of it. I know little more than a name, but it is clear spite is not the only imbalance within you. It would not be the first time I have watched someone die to their own poison.” She tried to meet his glare, but another cough burbled past her lips. She spat to the side again, painting the snow with red. Fen’Harel hmph’d, his face angling toward the ground with a nasty smirk curving his lips visible beneath the cowl.

    “How could I refute the wisdom of the Dread Wolf?” she sneered. “You’ve survived, seen it all, and I am an inconsequent rat to your greater scheme.”

    “A rat can go places wolves and dragons cannot. So can spiteful seeds.” His lips set in thoughtful poise before mirroring her frown, “I am less interested in a title for this tale than those given to the characters—what will they call you when this is over?”

    Summary

    Gemma Trevelyan was a secret mage; an apostate, never taken to the Circle, raised as a nobleman's daughter. Now that she's the so-called "Herald of Andraste," that secret is out, and what's more, she's suddenly far more powerful than ever before. She now has to navigate a role she never intended to fill, all without getting herself killed or stirring up the wasps' nest that is Thedosian politics. Should be fun, right?

    At least she has an elven hedge mage and the physical embodiment of a Fade spirit to watch her back.

    Summary

    I am incredibly fed up with self-insert stories. Especially those happening to me. I've decided to make them everyone else's problem.

    The world has been changed. The consequences of my hubris (for details consult The Tale of the Champion by V. Tethras, I am still penning my version down, because due to some revolutions it was hard to do until now) have caught up with me and I've ended up exactly where I did not want to be: Knee deep in snow and end-of-the-world bullshit (again).
    Trying to hide a spirit possession and running dangerously low on fucks to give it has been once again put upon me to stop the end of the world.

    If the world burns, it burns on my terms.

    (While the story for DA2 and the gap between it and DAI are not out yet, certain passages might not make a complete sense. But I consider you a capable enough reader to do without strictly chronological narrative.)

    Summary

    This is part of an ongoing series: CHARON'S OBOL; this is part one of the PROLOGUE

    The aim of this series is to write a better character arc for one Cullen Rutherford, who, despite a confusing amount of fandom love, has an arc across three games that isn't wholly coherent or consistent. Parts of this series may appear with other POV characters, and usually will be written within the context of a specific quest or part of the game in question's arc.

    Finally, this series is written with a female circle mage Grey Warden, Iðunn Amell. An additional OC, Ser Griseldis of Starkhaven and Kirkwall, also plays a large role in the entries to this series.

    Summary

    Artemisia is a drifter from a world much like our own but with a few differences, the most notable of those difference being the existence of Werewolves and Vampires (amongst other things) hiding among the Human masses. Artemisia is a Werewolf drifter who has spent the last three years moving from city to city making money through labouring, song and the occasional underground fight. She had a good routine going until a green wormhole opened up while she was on the road and pulled her through it, across the dimensional barriers and into a brand new world. Now she has to keep her Lycanthropic heritage a secret in a world where werewolves are believed to be caused by demonic possession while leading an army that is basically a religious crusading force in an attempt to save the world… shit.

    Summary

    This is the story of how Cullen Rutherford fell in love with a Knight-Enchanter from Ostwick after the Conclave failed.

    Unlike most circle mages, Joshua Trevelyan befriended a Spirit of Hope during his Harrowing. The two of them grew close as friends and she taught him to respect The Fade and it's denizens. She even taught him about history, philosophy and most importantly, how to speak and read Elvhen. Naturally, Cullen was unnerved by this, but he warmed up to Josh anyways.

    Fen'Harel was intrigued by the young man. He was not like any human he had met before. He was a pariah, like the Dread Wolf himself.

    Maybe, just maybe- He was the kindred soul- the friend the Dread Wolf desperately needed to prove him wrong.

    Unbeknownst to everyone, even the Dread Wolf himself;

    A little fox pup lingers out of sight,
    Dancing shadows in the light.

    "Red-faced and free, Friends of old and new love and desire. The little fox pup is making his move. Her Grand Game is beginning. Are we playing with him? Or against Her?" --- Cole

    Summary

    Samson goes hounding the Knight-Captain at the Gallows, in search of some charitable hand-outs of lyrium, for old time's sake. Intercut with memories of the good old days when they were bunkmates and much, much closer.

    Finally a little bit of Samson/Cullen flirting and (tasteful) action, in amongst post-templars Samson suffering and being a sweary mess. Young 20-something Cullen getting his flirt on gives me life, even if he should -put down the lyrium-!
