    Summary

    Tales will always be told about the Blight in Ferelden. The shortest in history, it was the one that had the best chance at ending the world. If not for a handful of Grey Wardens, this story would not be told at all.
    The Hero of Ferelden, the Warden who struck the killing blow against the Archdemon and lived... Who were they really?

    Summary

    This is my very first fanfiction! Basically my Mahariel's story from Origins. All constructive criticism is welcome, since I'm not super good at creative writing. This will turn steamy later, hence the rating, but that will take me a long time, so bear with me! This is very short right now and I apologize, but I'm new to this, and at least I started something!

    Summary

    “I am a Grey Warden. I don’t get involved in politics,” Duncan said. She looked at him then, her eyes dark.

    “A foolish thing to say. The Wardens are always political, whether you like it or not. You don’t have a choice.”

    Summary

    "My name is Alistair. I'm an almost-templar, a full-time Grey Warden and a royal bastard... but, hush, this is actually a secret. This is my story... although it's not alone about me... It's more like my version of how the most unlikely bunch of losers accidentally saves the world. And no, I'm not exaggerating. It's a tale worth being told and worth reading. It's pretty tragic, mind you, with lots of villains, treacherous bastards, dragons and more darkspawn than I can count. But also kinda funny... we laugh more than you would expect. And you're going to meet the most ravishing, beautiful and cunning young woman ever... my woman. Maker's Breath, she's amazing! And she's the reason why this story contains a whole lot of... lamppost licking... err... Now, why don't you just read it while I stand over there until the blushing stops, yes?"

    Alistair's POV of the events during the Fifth Blight and his love for the Cousland Warden. The story follows the game with lots of extras.

    Rated explicit for what happens after chapter 28. Before... oh, well, you know this is about adorably woo-less Alistair, so what else to expect?

    Summary

    Avexis Cousland was the extremely sheltered baby daughter of Bryce Cousland, when her home and family are destroyed by Arl Rendon Howe, she is saved by Duncan, a Grey Warden who was there to recruit her Brother Aedan before he died protecting his Father. Taken to Ostagar, she if faced with becoming a Grey Warden, something she is afraid of doing. Thankfully, her fellow warden Alistair is there for her to lean on and she finds her strength in a man who is to easy to fall in love with.

    They say the world needs a Hero, but will it be the man groomed to fight with honor? Or a woman who never expected to fight at all?

    **Slight AU with Cousland being shy, nervous and unsure and Alistair more like the hardened version and very confident.

    **Covering most of the Game as well as a couple of new missions and such of my own creation

    Summary

    The rules regarding leaving prompts in my tumblr ask box are as follows: I will write it eventually unless it is not something I think I can handle/do justice, in which case I will let you know. Essentially, as the good Saint once said: "We're sorta like 7-11. We're not always doing business, but we're always open."

    Summary

    Moira Cousland is the wild, willful and sarcastic woman who is also the twin Sister of the Hero of Ferelden, Aedan, who died to save the the world from the Blight.

    A year before Aedan's great sacrifice. Bryce Cousland betrothed Moira to Nathaniel Howe and learning of it she runs away to enjoy life to its fullest before being leashed with a husband. Hoping one day to reconcile with her parents, she blames herself for not being there to save them.

    In Denerim she learns of a Tourney being held to honor her Brother and goes to compete and make some quick coin.

    Thrust back into a world she doesn't want anymore, she finds herself involve in thwarting a plot to kill King Alistair, a horny former Queen trying to screw her way to the top, an Antivian Elf dragging her off on one to many adventures and a King who is dying to seduce her and she isn't so sure she wants to stop him, oh and a herd of mabari puppies destroying the palace, yep life in Ferelden is fun.

    Obviously an AU world still falling within the DA world and timeline, just adding a new spunky and fun loving member to the Cousland Family

    Rated Explicit for part of chapter 7 and pure Alistair smut Chapter 8

    Summary

    When disaster strikes, the Grey Wardens are reduced to a ragtag bunch of misfits: a Teyrn's daughter with self-esteem issues, her elder brother with a penchant for playing the hero, the royal bastard with a sense of humor as his preferred shield, a sweet, petite city elf with a big two-handed sword, the skilled Dalish elf feeling like a fish out of water, an exiled dwarf prince with a secret weakness for cute things, his new friend, a casteless dwarf armed with a sharp tongue, the healer mage who can only heal when sufficiently enraged, the gentle Circle prodigy who recently passed his harrowing, his annoyingly protective elder sister that can breathe fire literally, the frustrated apostate mage who is too eager to make new friends, and a farmer's son who has no idea what he's doing with the rest.

    Whatever was the Maker thinking when he thrust the fate of Thedas on their shoulders? Even with the friends and companions sent along their way to help them, there's simply no way that nothing could go wrong, right?

    Andraste's holy flaming knickers! Hopefully they don't blow up Ferelden.
