    Summary

    Former historian Margo Duvalle has survived the first six weeks of her sojourn in Thedas by wit, chance, and the skin of her teeth. Sadly, her luck shows no intention of improving. The body Margo occupies belonged to a stranger with a tumultuous past — a past that seems to stalk her at every corner. And if being an “abomination” shoehorned into the alternating roles of alchemist, bard, rogue, demonic snack, and scientific curiosity for the local mages weren’t bad enough, Margo’s life is increasingly tangled up with an Inquisition that hangs by a thread, and its unlikely young leader whose uncanny abilities and cryptic past suggest some troubling things about the nature of Thedas. Saving a world on the edge of collapse is a thankless task — in particular when said world has absolutely no interest in saving itself.
    Picks up where Reluctant Alchemist left off. Please refer to Prologue for a reading guide.

    I am, as always, indebted to Qophia for donating her labor as beta. All remaining mistakes are my responsibility.

    Summary

    Kirkwall. City of Chains. And the Gallows - stronghold of Templar might in the Free Marches - welcomes every new arrival from the Waking Sea. It is 9:30 Dragon. Seven years before tragedy strikes first Kirkwall, and then Thedas. Cullen Rutherford of the Templar Order arrives at the forbidding stronghold a changed man. The horrors he suffered in Kinloch Hold have reformed him into a man utterly convinced of the dangers of magic and wholly committed to protecting people from it, whatever the sacrifice. Knight-Commander Meredith sees a kindred soul, and the broken templar becomes Knight-Captain, second-in-command of one of the strictest Circles in Thedas.

    The Templar Order is as secretive as it is proud. Behind the Champion's tale, the Templar Order had its own part to play out. How do events in Kirkwall lead to the fall of the Templar Order?

    --A behind-the-scenes fiction of DAII featuring the Templar Order from the perspective of Knight-Captain Cullen--

    Summary

    Dhavunlean Sabrae has been wandering since the destruction of their clan, looking for a new home and purpose. On their way through the northern Dales, they stumble on the campsite of an unconscious elf, and out of a mix of concern and loneliness they keep watch over him until he wakes. But when he finally comes back to himself, he claims to have been killed by Fen’harel, before lapsing into the blank stare of Tranquility. With no better prospects, and unwilling to leave Felassan alone, they decide to try and help him find a way to reverse his condition. They have no way of knowing that this will be the decision that not only changes their fate, but possibly the fate of all of Thedas.

    Summary

    Aurum Lavellan, First of the Clan Lavellan, Spy, Mage, and Hunter, found herself in a situation far beyond her Clan's reckoning. There was so much for her to do, and while she has no loyalty to a Circle, to the Inquisition, or the Burned Woman, she...cannot bring herself let them die. She is Apostate by every meaning of the word, she has secrets that she holds tight to, and above all else, she wants to go home.

    But...Ah, but it doesn't matter. She has a world to save, a Breach to close, and so many other things to concern herself with that she does not quite have the time to bother with playing nice. She wants to go home, and no blond shemlen templar is going to distract her from that. Not at all.

    Summary

    They say war was inevitable. The Circle Towers of Thedas had been walking the thin line between order and disaster for decades, but everyone knew something had to give. All it took was one mage to decide that enough was enough, and bring their justice to the world in explosive fashion.

    When a tragedy beyond comprehension shakes Lake Calenhad, one woman allows herself a moment of uncontrolled anger and grief, and sparks a revolution that will shake Thedas to the core.

    A No Blight!AU in which my Surana leads an organized mage rebellion ten years before the established canon, almost by accident. This is Act 1, which details the Storming of the Circle Tower. Features heavy themes of abuse, PTSD, violence, and drug abuse in the form of lyrium.

    Summary

    There was one mage in the Gallows who had never been like the others; she was loud, defiant, and she flirted constantly with the Knight-Captain. Really, there was only one thing Meredith could do about her.

    And though Cullen had promised to kill Shepard if she was ever made Tranquil, keeping that vow turned out to be a lot more difficult than he'd expected.

    (An angst-filled AU of The Two Commanders, in which Shepard is made Tranquil right before the explosion at Kirkwall.)

    Summary

    Following the catastrophe at the conclave, a Tranquil emerges from a rift, but she is no longer cut off from the fade. Ebris Trevelyan had chosen Tranquility ten years prior, having been raised devoutly Andrastian and in fear of her own magic. Touched by a spirit of faith she must determine whether to attempt the rite again for her sanity or to reacquaint herself with her magic and use the gifts the Maker seems to think she needs. But in the mean time she struggles with containing her emotions, especially when it comes to the Ex-Templar Cullen Rutherford.
