    Summary

    She is not their Herald. She is Bas. She is Tal-Vashoth. She is the former second-in-command of the Valo-Kas and she shouldn't be here. She wants no part in the business of these Andrastrians, and it is abundantly clear that they don't want her here either.

    And he is the physical manifestation of all her fears. He wakes nightmares in her she thought she had long left behind, with her past, on the other side of the Ocean.
    He is all the more reason to leave.

    Summary

    Other ex-qunari are usually thrilled when you tell them that you're from an entire happy, safe, sound village of vashoth people. Tama's no different. And Meraad, well. Who knows what's going on inside his head.
    (Asaara, a vashoth mercenary, talks about where she's from.)

    Summary

    Prompt from DA kinkmeme: "The tal vashoth have a custom were they love to kiss as another way of saying FU to the Qun, because romantic kisses are not done in the Qun. When Adar was a kid kissing was quite normal, and when she gets into a relationship with Bull she is dismayed to learn that he does not kiss. At first she thinks she can handle it, but finds letting go harder without the intimacy. Bull tries to accommodate, and learns he quite likes it."
    Well I hope you wanted slow churning smutty plot because buckle down for this multi-chaptered ride!!

    Summary

    Things are good between Dorian and the Inquisitor Zayn Adaar. So good that the Tevinter wants to prepare a little spicy surprise for his Amatus. Unfortunately, turns out going to Iron Bull for that was not the best idea he had. Zayn's reaction isn't what he expected and now the tension between the Vashoth and the Qunari turns explosive.

    Summary

    For mercenary field medic Meraad Adaar, the Conclave was just another temporary security detail for the Valo-Kas -- until it all went sideways, and Adaar the Apostate became an unwilling holy icon of a faith she doesn't understand, trapped in a hostile foreign land.

    Surrounded by a mismatched army of refugee mages, templars, rogues, warriors, and a sexy Qunari spy, Meraad must somehow unite the disparate forces of their broken world, to save them all before it’s too late. She seeks advice from her family in the Free Marches, and with one desperate letter, changes their lives forever.

    Summary

    Let's be honest, there are worse fates.

    For a kink meme prompt: Krem mentioned that part of the Charger's code of conduct was to see that any soldiers or other mercenaries taken prisoner receive the best treatment - food, water, healing if necessary, and so on. "We'd want the same for any of ours that got captured", and that this is the professional expectation among most respectable mercenary bands (as respectable as one can be). What about when that prisoner is Vashoth - part of a mercenary band of Tal-Vashoth, the Valo-Kas - and your leader is secretly a Qunari Spy?

    Summary

    Sera said if The Inquisitor seemed more like people he wouldn’t seem so scary to those willing to give their lives for him. It might also make inquisiting more bearable considering they deal with batshit magister assholes, mercenaries, demons, the carta, orlesians, and dragons – which, despite what Bull says, are only cool until they try to eat you. Not to mention they fight whatever else the sky literally throws at them.

    Showcasing The Inquisition not only makes The Inquisitor seem more relatable and approachable but explains how/why he hasn’t thrown himself from a balcony yet. Also, who in Andraste’s name is that Qunari who just showed up?

    Featuring: Inquisitor Lavellan, Adaar The Valo-Kas Mercenary, Sera, Iron Bull & His Chargers, Lady Josephine Montilyet, Hawke, A Broody Glowing Elf, Varric, Dorian, Harding, Cole, and other people of limited importance (i.e. the rest of the inquisition). “Special Guest” appearances by: Clan Lavellan, Bianca The Crossbow, The Hero Of Ferelden, Whoever Rules Orlais, King Alistair & Queen Anora Theirin, Various Grey Wardens, and that other Hawke sibling; you know, the grumpy one.

    Summary

    Having a cup of coffee while watching the sun rise was a ritual for Mertam Adaar hardly broke. The blankness of the snow-covered horizon served as perfect place to let his mind wander and reflect on his life as the unlikely leader of the Inquisition.

    He wonders silently how the people that bow to him truly see him. Do they see him as a leader, fair and just as he tries to be or do they see him as just a beast playing pretend?

    Iron Bull interrupts Mertam on one of those days, an early morning encounter that fills the Inquisitor with a confusing mix of joy and anxiety.

    He wonders as well about Bull and what he sees? Does he see him as just man, albeit a recently powerful one, with a confusing crush on him or just another Vashoth who’ll never be his equal?
