One-shot. After a sermon lets out, Auntie Lavellan tells the story of Andruil's Creation.
It's like a Dalish version of Gift of the Magi. Except that everyone involved hates each other. Also there's no backdrop of holiday spirit. Or really any altruism, at all.
All I'm saying is, Gift of the Magi would be more interesting if the moral was "we're all going to die, so lose yourself to your basest instincts."
- Part 3 of More Dalish Tales

New members flocked to the reasonable religious doctrine that denied neither the Marker nor Andraste but that was about it. Their strange views about land had resonated deeply within the hearts and minds of people living in areas heavily affected by the Mage-Templar War or blighted with rifts. That men belonged to the land: born upon it, living upon it, and when their spirit departed their mortal bodies returned to it was unexpectedly inspiring. The forsaking of the Fade in its current state as something created by the corrupted men in search of power was also powerfully moving. That the Cult did not elaborate of what happened to the Spirit after death had struck a powerful chord in Trevelyan.
Why he was here was the other thing that the Cult was teaching, that the beast was not something separate from the man. Not some eternal test put forth by the Maker to determine an individual’s worth in an endless game of self-control but just another component of the soul. It was the acceptance of the beast as a part of themselves that created an aura of confidence about them, an aura of primordial power that trickled from their skin. That was true control, control achieved by surrender.
Fiction snapshots of the relationship between Solas and Vhenaste Lavellan. Each chapter is a different work originally posted on Tumblr. They will not always be in chronological order, not only because that's not how they were created but also as a continuing homage to some inspirations for the individual works.
(Rating changed for Chapter 8. Warning changed for Chapter 20.)
