    Summary

    "It is I, the Great Zevran, assaulter of forts and rescuer of wayward wardens, at your service," he said, voice filled with bravado as he took a flourishing bow. His ankles were crossed, his arms swept wide. But the cocky grin on his face did not reach his eyes. Those glittered as if he were still in the killing mood.

    Wherein the Dalish mage warden learns about resilience, and Zevran Arainai applies pointy things to bad men and wicked creatures.

    A continuation of my Dalish mage origin playthrough. For background and context, I do recommend reading the whole series in order. Manages to bemostly cannon. Updates daily.

    Summary

    After the destruction of her clan, a Chasind hunter becomes a Grey Warden.

    She seems to be everything Ferelden hates: Chasind, blasphemous, 'barbaric' and 'uncivilized', among other things. But together with an ex-noble and an ex-templar, she is the only thing standing between the country and the Blight. Gathering allies wherever she can find them, she may just become the hero Ferelden needs.

    Summary

    Rendri Aeducan. Dorach Brosca. Iris Amell. Phaeron Surana. Harriet Cousland. Yulita Tabris. Caradoc Mahariel.
    When Duncan started his last round of recruiting in preparation for the darkspawn horde building in the Wilds, he did not expect to find as many potential candidates as he did. He certainly didn’t expect so many of them to survive the Joining.
    Now seven junior Grey Wardens (emphatically not led by one slightly less junior Grey Warden named Alistair) have to save the world. Together, they must face the growing threat of the darkspawn. And demons, zombies, werewolves, cultists, and a whole host of other inconveniences that were not included in the welcome speech. Oh, and one of the country’s greatest modern war heroes is out to get them.
    No pressure.

    Summary

    During the Fifth Blight, Selene Amell and Alistair Theirin fell in love. However, when he was made king, duty demanded he find a wife the Bannorn would find suitable and have an heir. He broke with Amell, he tried to do it quickly and cleanly, no matter how much it hurt him. He failed. He crushed the heart of the woman he loved under his boot. How could he not, when he had chosen duty over love? When Selene later refused to even ask him to perform the dark ritual with Morrigan, planning to sacrifice her own life to kill the Archdemon.
    When neither of them died, Alistair thought they were blessed by the Maker. He planned to keep his dear Amell by his side as an adviser and was shocked when she disappeared right before he presented the Hero of Ferelden to his people. He returned to his duty and the efforts to find a suitable queen.
    Amell found herself in a bit of trouble and in Kirkwall, where she hoped to track down her family. She worked on building a new life, while avoiding Meredith and her Templars. She found herself also dealing with an evil Cult that wants something she would never give them.

    Summary

    Thoryn pushed himself back to his knees, drawing his hands to his lap, the back of one bloodied hand placed carefully in the palm of the other. “I need someone to bind my ribs.”
    “What?” Alistair’s voice was rough, blood still smeared across his cheeks by the tears he’s rubbed away.
    Zevran winced watching Thoryn struggle to his feet. “It’ll be easier to cast if my ribs are bound.”
    Alistair shook his head. “We’ll go back. Get Wynne. We can’t…”
    “There’s a cave full of zealots between us and Wynne. I’ll need to be able to cast, especially if we go back.”
    “We have no idea what’s in front of us. At least we know what’s behind us,” Alistair insisted.
    It was a sound tactical decision. Zevran’s arm was still cradled against his chest. There was no telling how badly Leliana’s head was throbbing. The blood was matted into her hair at her temple.
    “Forward, back…” Thoryn glanced over his shoulder, staring at the door on the far side of the valley. “We have to get the Urn.”

    Summary

    What if the Inquisitor, became a warden during the fifth blight. No she doesn't become involved in the hero of ferelden story beat, but just bare with me. What if instead of the Mage rebellion, it was the templar rebellion. What if The hero of Ferelden, turned the wardens into villians? What if Divine Justina abolished the Chantry, Templars and Circles? I'm bad at summaries but, it'll be worth it. A butterfly affect happens and characters who were the heroes in our storiess are now the villians or a shell of what they were.

    Of all the planets Commander Shepard could have crash landed on, ending up in the mysterious land of Thedas during a Blight was definitely on the bottom of her list.

    Summary

    Caden Tabris never actively went looking for trouble, but it found her on her wedding day no less! A deadly encounter with a noble human sparked off a journey Caden never expected, tearing her from her family in the process. Caden must learn to trust again, battling her demons from her previous life, possibly even finding a new family if she can stop resisting her fellow Wardens attempts at kindness.

    (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.
    (This is also posted on FF.net as is the previous draft of this work under the title This Is War.)

    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

    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.
