    Summary

    This is the story of how Cullen fell in love with a circle mage from Ostwick after the Conclave failed.

    Unlike most circle mages, Joshua Trevelyan befriended a Spirit of Hope during his Harrowing. The two of them grew close as friends and she taught him to respect The Fade and it's denizens. She even taught him about history, philosophy and most importantly, how to speak and read Elvhen. Naturally, Cullen was unnerved by this, but he warmed up to Josh anyways.

    Fen'Harel was intrigued by the young man. He was not like any human he had met before. He was a pariah, like the Dread Wolf himself.

    Maybe, just maybe- He was the kindred soul- the friend the Dread Wolf desperately needed to prove him wrong.

    Summary

    Life, as Ana Cousland knew it, was perfect. As daughter of the second most powerful man in Ferelden - behind the King- she had everything she could ask for; her own mabari hound, loving parents, living in a beautiful castle, sneaking away with her childhood sweetheart to the gardens for stolen kisses and gentle caresses. Little did she know of the dark forces lurking in the shadows, waiting for their opportunity to strike. Before she knew it, the unexpected betrayal from her father's closest friend shattered her perfect world, resulting in her fleeing for her life in the middle of the night. Yet, even after reaching Ostagar and informing the king of the treachery, Ana quickly discovers that evil lurks everywhere; even in the ranks of the renown Grey Wardens. Will Ana ever find happiness and purpose within her new life as a Grey Warden?

    Summary

    No one thought sparing the assassin was a good idea. Except, of course, for the fact that, as the only remaining Grey Wardens, Thoryn and Alistair needed all the help they could get and Zevran was hardly the first dubious companion they’d picked up along the way. Which meant no one had any reason to question why Thoryn accepted Zevran’s oath. Not even Thoryn. So, when Zevran slips into his dreams, Thoryn assumes it is only another tactic the demons are using to bend him to their will. It’s not worth dwelling on because Thoryn has more important things to worry about than dreams of a mirror and a sky full of crows…

    Summary

    It's not everyday you watch your whole world burn. It's not everyday you see countless people slaughtered by friends and monsters alike. Such is the life of a Grey Warden.
    Aedan Cousland finds himself thrust into the role of a leader ill-prepared and frightened. Fergus was always the leader as the oldest sibling, but now Aedan has to carry Ferelden from the precipice of destruction virtually on his own.
    Elissa Cousland is thrown into a role she never wanted, tasked with ending a Blight alongside a group of people she couldn't possibly care less about. It should be the golden opportunity for her to run away and escape her own personal hell, but something about those same people (and maybe a certain bard) hold her back.
    Together, the twins will have to learn how to live on the road, alone, without someone watching over them, and learn the true meaning of their family motto: a Cousland always does their duty.

    The story of how a Warden and a Crow find comfort in the most unlikely of places.

    Summary

    “I’m going to be answering that question for the rest of my life. Yes, I was there. It was big. The Hero of Ferelden was brave. But that was ten years ago. “What have you done for us lately, Alistair?” New times, new problems.”

    Those were Senior Warden Alistair words when an important someone asked him about the Fifth Blight. 10 years had passed without anyone knowing anything about him and the legendary Hero of Ferelden. But what happened during all this time?

    It's maybe the good moment to tell the story of Naya Surana and Alistair Therin, two Grey Wardens dedicated to the oath they have taken, devoted to each other, and so much more.

    (Content Warning: there is an attempted sexual assault early on as per the city elf origin details, and it leads to some flashbacks throughout the story)

    Disclaimers: BioWare owns everything, including a portion of my soul; I'm just grateful to play and write in their world. Story title comes from Brandi Carliles amazing song Hard Way Home.

    Summary

    Hera Drakul has lived her entire, long life decadently, bravely, and mostly luckily- but always on her own terms. No stranger to walking the planes of existence, she’s traveled to many different worlds, fighting alongside her twin brother and their ever-changing circle of comrades for coin, pleasure, and sometimes even what’s right. That all changed when she and Zeus discovered their parentage, leaving them with more power and responsibility than they’ve ever wanted.

    After the novelty wears off, she finds her new life beautiful, predictable, and utterly boring.

    So when a mysterious mirror appears in the forest and whispers of adventure, she can't help but get closer. The temptation and curiosity that fueled so many escapades in her past lead her to Ferelden, where she has to determine friend from foe, keep a devastating secret, and discover who she is without her twin at her side.

    Last, but absolutely not least, an enormous thank you to my beta, PadawanHilary, for picking up this project at the eleventh hour and working with me. If you haven't checked out her fic Monster, I highly recommend it.

    Summary

    This story is being written for fun; my AU. It is not completely canon. It will span before DAO through all three games and then we will see. If you know me, you'll know I've added my own flare and chars to the story which can change the way NPCs think or feel. Some mythological elements. Some DA2/DAI players will be met sooner. As always, mature readers only, due to sexual content and violence. Story begins in the West Hills with something unexpected.

    Summary

    Their love was a grand masquerade - a clumsy dance where one would strive to unmask and trip the other, yet behind it all was an unbreakable bond and secret gentleness. As long as the music plays, the dance continues.
