    Summary

    Colette Amell is not a fighter. Taken from her Mother when she was six, has not seen much of the outside world and doesn't exactly know how it works. After the fated battle of Ostagar she is thrust into leadership and must somehow save Ferelden from itself though she wasn't even born here. She falls in love with Alistair, her fellow Grey Warden who has bled with her and kept her sane and alive with his strong shield and questionable humor when she meets Leliana, a woman claimed to have been touched by the Maker and stirs feelings in her that she didn't think were possible. She knows she has to choose, but her heart is torn and even her faith won't tell her what to do.

    Summary

    Their love was a grand masquerade - a clumsy dance where one would strive to unmask the other with the intent to see them sprawled on the floor by the end of the whole affair, looking angry and foolish. Yet behind it all was an unbreakable bond and secret gentleness. As long as the music plays, the dance continues.

    Morrigan's POV of the romance from the first game.

    There will be some changes to the canon, hopefully nothing major.

    Summary

    Trust is a delicate flower that needs to get nurtured and time to grow. Even more so love. A tale of two disparate Wardens forced together, of finding a way to overcome the distrust, and their own painful past in the time of the Blight.

    Very in-depth, character-focused exploration of the Dalish origin/warden, of all DA:O companions, and their relationship dynamics during the Fifth Blight. Follows and expands on canon events; AU in some ways. Multiple POV's and pairings. Slow burn af.

    This is a COMPLETELY new rewritten and revised version of my story, originally posted on Fanfiction.net. Please see the individual chapter notes for more information about what had been changed. Tags, Chapter Amount (rough estimate) and Rating are subject to change and will get updated with its further progress. Comments and feedback of any kind are very much appreciated :)

    Summary

    "Tell me I was never good enough...Remind me of the demons that I've been running from..." -Hurricane by I Prevail

    He was like the sun: warm, radiant, and surely made of molten gold. He made her cheeks burn brilliantly, and looking at him too long caused her to shy away quickly and avert her stare. Alistair Theirin, who’s very existence stirred bubbles of laughter in her gut and caused her cheeks to ache from smiling, was the sliver of light in the eye of the hurricane.

    But torrential rains threaten to close in as the Darkspawn Hordes grow ever so near, and Alistair is called to the highest level of duty: King of Ferelden.

    And just like the sun…He is well beyond her reach, burning and smoldering her to ash in his wake.

    Summary

    Talia Cousland had always wanted more from her life. She wanted respect, position, love...but not just from her name or because she was Bryce Cousland's youngest child and only daughter.

    Yet never, in all her life, had she wanted it like this. Her family dead, her home destroyed, a Blight tearing through her lands, and her survival in the form of the Grey Wardens. And the only person she feels she can trust is a certain junior Grey Warden with secrets of his own.

    Summary

    It started with an unexpected accident that ended her first life. But by some miracle, she received a second chance. The catch? She found herself in the body of a game character who was supposed to die.

    Now, she takes a new name and discovers new abilities to navigate through the familiar game world turned real. If she plans it carefully, perhaps she can make it better than the limited outcomes she knew from the game.

    Summary

    I am not a big one for self-insert stories. I make an exception for this one, because this one happened to me.

    I woke up after the Joining as the Warden at the beginning of the Fifth Blight in Thedas in the body of Duran Aeducan. Thirty minutes later I derailed the course of known history. Per Duncan's assignment I am then to accompany Alistair to gather the Grey Wardens' allied forces, and per my decision I am to keep out of the way of consequences... and not get called out on being the fakest dwarf.

    Summary

    Aenor Mahariel really didn't want to be a Warden, and she's dead set on making Alistair know it.
    Geralt Amell was captured and incarcerated at the Mage Tower, after helping his best friend and forever-crush Jowan escape the Circle.
    Kallian Tabris got kidnapped and made a terrible deal with her captors to save the other girls, like the brave fighter her late mom taught her to be.
    Elissa Cousland's world shattered in a night, and now she's looking for justice and allies.
    Duran Aeducan was betrayed by his own brother, but that doesn't mean he's just gonna go die in the Deep Roads for a crime he didn't commit.

    Summary

    On his way to Ostagar, Duncan conscripts three Grey Warden recruits; Maura Cousland, a bitter, grieving noble, who resents Duncan for denying her revenge. Rhian Surana, an ambitious mage who is just glad to be free of Kinloch Hold. And Kasia Brosca, a casteless criminal with a quick blade who isn't sure what's she's doing among heroes.

    After catastrophe strikes, it's up to these three misfits, along with Alistair, a junior Warden, to save Ferelden and all of Thedas from the Blight.

    With the aid of their companions, they just might manage to recruit an army — and depose a tyrant, while they're at it.
