    Summary

    Welcome to my first FanFic! This is my personal take on one of my Dragon Age: Origins characters, Kylara, Human Mage, and her adventures as a Grey Warden in the land of Ferelden. There is in-game dialogue used, especially in the beginning, but past Chapter 3 things start branching off from the original game. A few changes I have made: my character already knows Wynne, as she was Kylara’s former teacher in the Circle Tower. I also gave a name to the small lake east of Lake Calenhad - I am calling it Lake Caeron. Another change is that I moved the Golem Shale from Honnleath to a town of my own creation in the mountains northwest of Rainesfere. Since fast travel is available in the game, but not in the story, I had to make it more plausible to be able to recruit Shale without having to travel days south, away from all other points in the game. I also used horses and carriages where I thought they would fit into the lore. Mage spells, when written out, are in Scottish Gaelic (long spells already translated) Some characters have had some personality tweaks… A lot of things will not be canon, but I hope you will like it all the same. There is Mature Content. NOW FEATURING ART (and screenshots)! ^_^

    Summary

    Scarlett Amaryllis Cousland never asked for this. She didn't want to become a Grey Warden. She wasn't looking to play hero. She's just some shy bookworm who was in the wrong place at the wrong time and now it's up to her to save the world. Armed with a wicked brand of sarcasm and a really, REALLY big sword, she and her companions set off to fix the unholy mess we affectionately call The Blight. Despite her initial reluctance to lead, she soon comes to learn she has an inexplicable knack for it. Just one problem: Love. complicates. everything.

    This story is a DA:O retelling and yes, dare I say, a love story. But that's not to suggest it'll just be the same ol' tale you've played through a dozen times. I've thrown in lots of extras and taken several liberties with this otherwise familiar plot, and I promise this is one story that will definitely keep you guessing. So buckle up, reader. You're in for one wild ride! :)

    Summary

    This is the novelization of my game play of Dragon Age: Origins. This content heavily follows the events of Dragon Age: Origins and uses dialogue that happens within the game. Any content I write is free to all, nor do I have any claims on Bioware's content.

    Summary

    Two 20-year-olds with sheltered and restricted upbringings, who've never been allowed to make their own choices in life, suddenly find themselves with the fate of Thedas resting in their hands. They've both got demons in their past, fears to conquer, and an army to raise, not to mention growing feelings they can't ignore and don't know what to do with.
    There is explicit sexual content toward the middle and end of the story, but it takes a while to get there. There is significant sexual harassment in two places: right at the beginning, and then again a few chapters later.
    Cullen is not a good guy in this one, so be forewarned.
    Look for the sequel, Bound by Blood, coming soon.

    Summary

    Catarina Lewis' life was never easy, but she was fighting to make her dreams come true. When she finally faced the truth-- that life was simply not going as she expected, she was forced to make some big decisions. Instead, she decided to simply coast on indecision, until the day she found herself in Thedas. Now she is making choices by the seat of her pants, being swept into adventure after crazy adventure with friends who make life and death into a daily game, She may have wanted a do-over, but this was NOT what she had in mind. Her knowledge of Thedas may come in handy, but if she wants to avoid becoming some sort of oracle, she'll need to have a pretty convincing act, or simply tell the truth. Neither option sounds good.

    Summary

    Welp. Here's that Zevmance I promised forever ago. I have always been working on it in my mind, but till now nothing really worked. And the last time I wrote it, it just...didn't seem right.

    Hopefully this time's the charm.

    Dive into a Modern Girl x Zevran romance if you like.

    And like, I didn't think this needed to be said, cause you know, fanfiction-- but apparently there's people who think every fanfic should be gritty, dark and super realistic. This will not be that. So if you don't like fluffy-ness, go read something else instead of starting shit in my comment section, please.

    Summary

Will Dune be able to make it to the end of her journey without losing herself along the way? Or has her inner tyrant already rooted itself far too deep?

    Summary

    A dwarf denied the throne, a noble bent on vengeance, a corrupted Dalish hunter, a mute carta enforcer, a one-eyed elven criminal, and an arson-prone mage from a different reality all walk into a bar. The bar is Thedas and Blight is on tap and it’s happy hour.

    It's the story you know, but bent in unexpected ways. The script is broken, ignored, and occasionally set on fire as the Wardens forge a new path to the future of Thedas.

    Caitwyn Tabris has no feelings, she needs no feelings! Except, oh wait, she's totally full of feels and no amount of distraction is helpful. Especially when people she thought were her friends hold certain... views.

    Good thing Alistair is like a dog with a bone about some things, or these kids would never get anywhere.

    Sorry for the late post... AGAIN. Much weary. But Mondays are easier than Sundays. Weekends, man.
