    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.
    Natia Brosca is a duster, and money's her best friend. Leske too, but he's even more unreliable.
    Somehow, they'll end up crossing their paths and become, if not close friends, at least allies in stopping the coming Blight and setting things right. On the way to save Ferelden, they'll find purpose, love and balance.

    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

    Arl Eamon was cured and decided that Alistair would be a pretender to the throne. The bubble of happiness explodes and The warden must now face the truth... Wynne, the dog, the wolf and Zevran will each have their own way of reconforting her...

    And BTW, I want to thank all the people who sent me kudos so far. It means a lot to me.

    "In death, sacrifice…I was ready to die. The truth is, it is in life that we sacrifice ourselves. I know now what makes the value of a Grey Warden: it is not only their courage, or their strength, or their resoluteness. A good Grey Warden is someone who has nothing to lose. That’s why Duncan recruited a young templar apprentice who had no future, a dalish hunter sentenced to death or a thief doomed to be hanged. That is why Jory could not accomplish the Joining…”.

    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

    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

    Alistair was given to the Chantry as a child - and knew everything the Chantry taught about mages. Their hubris brought darkspawn into the world when they sought to usurp Heaven, but instead, they destroyed it. They were cast out, twisted and cursed by their own corruption, and returned as monsters. They were something to be feared. They were something to be hated.

    They weren't something to be loved, but Alistair loved him anyway.

    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

    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

    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

    What can eight Grey Wardens, most of whom are new recruits, do against a Blight? Save the world if they have to, or go down trying. During such times they must name a new King, or two, and stop a civil war from tearing Ferelden apart.

    Easy, right? If you're in the habit of creating miracles. Which they must do now, before Ferelden falls to the darkness.

    Let's see what a mage, templar, Princess, nobleman, thief, Dalish elf and casteless dwarf can do against a tainted old god.
