    Summary

    Cast from your clan at a young age, and enslaved by the shems you were raised to fear, a life of pain and servitude is all you have ever known. Called only Rattas by your masters, you were lucky to work as a scribe in Tevinter, your strange magic a closely guarded secret that had to be kept at all costs; until your skill with words caught the attention of a power hungry Altus who called himself 'Venatori'. To you he was only The Master, and you feared him beyond all else. But when The Master takes you across the sea in a quest to 'restore the glory of Tevinter' you learn that there are greater things to fear.
    When a strange elf named Briala offers you freedom, can you break from your chains? Can you find the strength to fight the darkness on the horizon?

    The slowest of slow burns.
    Inspired by Keeping Secrets written by ElvenSemi, an absolutely amazing fanfic that I adore! I definitely recommend you go read it!

    Summary

    Marian Hawke's life has been just one chaotic event after another. She will do anything she can to keep the people she cares about close to her, even if it means traveling to the dreaded Tevinter Imperium. With the power of sarcasm, a big heart, and angsty ex-Tevinter slaves, the Champion of Kirkwall will take the world of Thedas by storm in a tale that doesn't really take itself that seriously*.

    [Less dramatically: An AU in which Hawke grows up with Fenris (formerly "Leto") in Denerim before eventually making it to Kirkwall and coming face-to-face with him again. Mages, templars, and blood magic, oh my!]

    *It tried not to, anyway. Whoops.

    Summary

    The true gods of Tevinter may have been forgotten, their stories lost to the ages, but they still remember the wrongs the humans enacted against them. When the Inquisition starts going out of their way to kill dragons, Ferox, the second eldest and goddess of primal magic, takes notice. She must stop the Inquisition's dragon hunting, or risk seeing the end of Thedas as she knows it.

    Summary

    “Wait, are you seriously asking me to be a bodyguard of a Tevinter mage?”
    “Yes.”
    “Oh, this is just adorable,” Fenris scoffed and emptied his glass. “You must be really desperate.”

    In other words, the Inquisitor assigns Fenris to guard Dorian when he's changing Tevinter while Felix and the Inquisition keep their fingers crossed and Varric is monetising Fenris' every good decision (first: not killing the mage on the spot). Dorian discovers Fenris is no longer the elf he once saw at the party and guiltily dreamed about in his teenage years and Fenris is forced to either change his opinions on Tevinter mages or add a special "Dorian Pavus" entry to his inner dictionary.

    They parted on a rough note and now circumstances bring them back together - Dorian Pavus & Kestrel Lavellan. Will they be able to work together and solve who's plotting Dorian's demise without being distracted by their lingering feelings for one another?

    Summary

    There is a species of fish living in the tributaries of the Minanter River that, once a year, make the long, arduous journey upstream through the Free Marches and return to the place they were all born. There, they find their home, they find love, however fleeting, and they find hope for the future.

    In the wake of the man she's always known as her father's death during the Fifth Blight, an apostate mage from the Free Marches embarks on her own journey upstream, to the place she was born. With only a name and the dubious help of a magister's less-than-reputable son, she soon finds that the streets of Minrathous hold a great deal more than just clues about her past.

    Summary

    Dorian knew that his lover and fellow mage, former Inquisitor Kai Trevelyan, had been in the Ostwick Circle for many years before he was able to leave. He's also heard stories of the southern Circles' barbaric tradition of Harrowing, but never heard what it was like for Kai until now...

    Summary

    In an alternative universe, Gereon Alexius has succeeded in 'removing' the Herald of Andraste... In a way. Now he is the one who has the Anchor and is expected to deal with all the problems caused by his one-time master. As in this new continuity, Alexius was in the south right at the point of the Conclave explosion, the Venatori never found him in Minrathous, and he never usurped the castle of the Arl of Redcliffe. But memories of the former timeline still linger in the subconscious of Alexius' son Felix, who is worried by his father's sudden disappearance and decides he cannot sit idly. Finding his friend Dorian in a seedy tavern on the border of the Imperium, Felix implores him to join his journey south, to the town of Redcliffe, which he keeps seeing in his fever dreams. And it turns out that they arrive just in time: even though Alexius is now the Herald (and is away trying to conscript the Templars of Therinfal Redoubt), the Venatori still need cannon fodder, and the Redcliffe takeover is promising to become quite a bit bloodier than when Alexius was the local villain.

    Summary

    podfic of margo_kim's story

    "So he was not ashamed of his preference in lovers. He was not. He had known his preference since his early teens, perhaps earlier, and he had acted upon it to the satisfaction of himself and his partners, and he was not ashamed. Tevinter was ashamed. His parents were ashamed. Dorian was not ashamed. Not about this." Or: Dorian has always known who he is and what he wants. Knowing has never made it easier. Also, he doesn't really know.

    Summary

    It's been a year since the Inquisition drew to a close. Corypheus is long dead (and not coming back this time), and his lieutenant, Calpernia, has better things to do than to mourn his loss. A slave uprising is building in Minrathous, and revolution is soon to come.

    You are Illana Dacien, a slave and a pit fighter. Once you've achieved your freedom, it may be up to you to change the shape of the future of Tevinter.

    This is basically my idea for what Dragon Age 4 should look like. Because it'll be a fanfic instead of a fully fleshed out game, it will (unfortunately) only be able to follow one of many potential routes in my would-be game. This fic will go through an Uprising in Tevinter and all that might entail in a Dragon Age game.
