    Summary

    What if the Warden, like Hawke returning in Inquisition, had a part in all three Dragon Age games?

    This story is over three parts: Dragon Age: Origins, Dragon Age: 2, and Dragon Age: Inquisition. It tells the story of Cullen and Solona's ever-changing and challenging relationship from Dragon Age: Origins all the way to Dragon Age: Inquisition - Trespasser.

    Chapters 1-24 are set during Dragon Age: Origins, Chapters 25-38 are set during Dragon Age: II, and Chapters 39 onwards are set during Dragon Age: Inquisition.

    The Dragon Age: Origins part of the story tends to stick to the events of the game (with a few differences here and there). If you want to skip that and begin the fresher story starting with the events during Dragon Age: II, skip to Chapter 25. I'll provide an overview of the events that happened in DA: O to catch you up :)

    ...But I highly suggest you stay and read the first part, so you can read some events from Cullen's point of view!

    Summary

    Ravens are omens of death. They should have sent the Hero of Fereldan a Griffon instead.

     

    Or, I have too many feelings about sacrificing Alistair in the Fade.

    Mostly in some semblance of order.

    Summary

    A mage and an addict with no memory of her life before Suledin Keep, Isaura finds refuge within the Inquisition, but for how long? Will her desire to belong and be accepted, along with their desire to see Samson fall and a cure for red lyrium be enough to prove herself valuable to those in command and bring back the part of her that's missing?

    Summary

    Dalish Warden Lyna Mahariel is the Hero of Ferelden, Champion of Redcliffe, Arlessa of Amaranthine, Redeemer of the Urn of Sacred Ashes, and broken-hearted former lover of King Alistair Theirin of Ferelden. For the sake of love, she agreed to Morrigan's dark ritual. She perseveres and wins against yet more darkspawn and conspiracies, and stumbles into yet more dark secrets of the Dalish, the dwarves, and the Wardens. She will go through more, if she must, in the greatest quest of her life: to find a cure for the Calling, and discover just what a living hero must do to cope with their own legend.

    (Canonish because no one said it *didn't* happen, and I've made sure it fits into the lore, timeline, and more. I obsessively checked the wiki, codex entries, fiction, world books, throwaway dialogue, you name it.)

    Summary

    Safir Tabris has had a hard life. Now, she's trying to fix it.

    The year is 9:39 Dragon, and after five years of exile, the retired Hero of Ferelden stews at home in Denerim. Beset by growing worries and rising impatience, she sets off on a quest to cleanse herself of the Blight once and for all.

    A ton of character development neatly disguised as a cure for the calling, this long-form is a direct sequel to the Safir Sadness Marathon.

    New chapters every SATURDAY*

    Summary

    Growing up in the Circle of Magi, Serenity Surana has lived a sheltered life, guided by the Chantry. When she is conscripted into the Grey Wardens, she finds purpose in duty and must learn to survive in ways the tower's books could never teach her.

    Summary

    At one point in their life, all Dwarrow feel The Calling, the need to create something special for their One. Nori was a thief; his craft was to steal things. Somehow he doubted that particular combination would work out, and that didn’t even begin to account for Hobbits and Dragons.
     
    Based on a prompt by Pirateking that got a bit out of hand XD
     
    Don’t let the number of words or chapters scare you. The chapters aren’t long, and there are enough opportunities to take a break and if necessary, be a responsible adult.

    Summary

    Though I am flesh, Your Light is ever present,
    And those I have called, they remember,
    And they shall endure.
    I shall sing with them the Chant, and all will know,
    We are Yours, and none shall stand before us.

    -Trials 15:1, Chant of Light

    A moment in time shared, is perhaps not a moment guaranteed, just as time is fleeting. Though, it is still a thing of worth to be fought for, at any price named, for love does not heed guarantees, but promises of the soul. Love does not lay down its arms.

    Summary

    Once upon a time there was a boy. He was born into wealth and happiness, wanting for nothing.
    The boy witnessed the death of his family, betrayal and bloodshed. The castle that was built around him, the castle that sheltered him, crumbled and the boy had to become a man. As man, he joined a noble and ancient order - The Grey Wardens. He faced trials and tribulations but also made allies and friends. With their help he saved the world from an evil that would have destroyed it.
    That was the easy part...

    The story follows Warden Commander Aedan Cousland - the Hero of Ferelden, on his quest to seek a cure for the Taint as he meets friends and enemies, old and new. Takes place around the beginning of Inquisition. I will rework and release a chapter at least once a week until it's done.
    Rated E for occasional violence and smut when the story calls for it.
    Hope you enjoy and feedback is always welcomed and appreciated. =]

    Summary

    The Inquisitor has been forgotten by their lover.

    The plan is to write one-shots with different pairings. Tags will be added as applicable.

    Chapter 3, if not the entire work owes a great deal to Butlercream's work "For You, Always."

    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

    When Naeva Surana made Alistair King of Ferelden, she didn't expect that to mean what they had between them would end. Or never thought of it, perhaps. And she makes it nearly ten years trying to think of it as little as possible, until every Warden in Vigil's Keep begins to hear the Calling and she can't ignore the possibility that the King of Ferelden might be, too.

    Alistair, on the other hand, has always been one to wallow in his mistakes, and sending away the love of his life is certainly no exception. When he begins to hear the Calling nearly a decade before he expected to, he assumes it's his penance for what he's done to Naeva and the dark ritual that spared their lives. But before he goes to the Deep Roads, there's one last apology he has to make.

    AKA my version of why King Alistair isn't even remotely worried about the darkspawn magister singing in his head in Inquisition.

    Summary

    Warden Tabris goes to her Calling, Zevran is with her for some final goodbyes

    ---

    The song was beautiful. It echoed in her mind, a song filled with longing and belonging, an emptiness in her heart it promised to fill if only she found the one at its source. The low tones shook her bones and the high ones played her heart strings. It whispered to her, a lonely call that promised her a comfort and companionship she had lost long ago. It felt familiar, it felt like home. How long had it been since she’d had a home? Too long. Much too long.
