    Summary

    The Hunter from Clan Lavellan is dismayed when he’s declared a savior, now trapped at the center of everyone’s attention with expectations nothing short of divine. Torn between the desire to do what is right and the true nature he tries to suppress, Inquisitor Lavellan finds comfort in the two least likely sources:  the Tevinter mage who deceives him into believing he can be a better man, and the ex-templar who feeds the very darkness he fears will bring ruin.

    The Inquisition is all that stands in defense of Thedas, and they’ve all sworn to the cause — but the paths to the Void are paved with good intentions.

    And secrets always have a way of coming out.

    Summary

    “The day Fen’Harel choked on a spiteful seed.”

    He remained motionless at the lip of the promontory. Seething, she imagined a timeline where she pushed his infuriating ass over the edge.

    “A pitiful demise, if such a fate should come to pass. I would prefer to see what could arise by planting it.” He faced her slowly. “Then again, perhaps nothing will come of it. I know little more than a name, but it is clear spite is not the only imbalance within you. It would not be the first time I have watched someone die to their own poison.” She tried to meet his glare, but another cough burbled past her lips. She spat to the side again, painting the snow with red. Fen’Harel hmph’d, his face angling toward the ground with a nasty smirk curving his lips visible beneath the cowl.

    “How could I refute the wisdom of the Dread Wolf?” she sneered. “You’ve survived, seen it all, and I am an inconsequent rat to your greater scheme.”

    “A rat can go places wolves and dragons cannot. So can spiteful seeds.” His lips set in thoughtful poise before mirroring her frown, “I am less interested in a title for this tale than those given to the characters—what will they call you when this is over?”

    Summary

    “Mamae,” the spirit said softly. It still clutched his hand — he allowed it to draw the memory from his grasp and hold it tight to its chest once more. “I think —” It took a deep breath — “I think that maybe she misses me. Should I go? I need to see her.”

    Solas considered correcting it. He considered telling it that this memory was not its own, that the Fade was its home. He considered guiding it closer to the part of the Fade near his base, where he could keep close watch over it as it grew. But he did none of those things. 

    Instead he closed his hands over the spirit’s, over the little memory it held close to its purple-thrumming heart. “I think she would like that,” he said. 

    ~:~:~

    Virelan and Solas's son, Tulin, begins to lucidly dream in the Fade. Solas discovers him and doesn't know who he's found.

    Summary

    This is the first step in my self-indulgent experiment in ancient elvhen worldbuilding and in eggy (ahem) backstory.

    When a prospective elvhen spirit augur Nuel goes to a family celebration, news of danger coming from the Tirashan forest reach the people of the Vashedan Plains (modern day Urthemiel's Plateau). Distraught by a lack of information coming from his senior in Vashedan, Nuel decides to seek the truth for himself, the threat breathing on his neck.

    Summary

    If there's one thing Sera knows at all, it's that she loves to hate nobility. She's never turned down an opportunity to tell them all to shove it up their arses. But with the world now very much doomed from Coryphytits, she's now found herself within the heart of the Inquisition, being forced to interact with the type of royal sods she's made a life out of hating. Will she be able to set her deep seeted convictions aside for the sake of looking out for the little people? Or will the pressure be enough to unravel her completely?

    UPDATE: All chapters containing any smut will be labeled with an -S at the end.

    Summary

    When Cullen went to his home village to meet with an old friend, he should have expected the trap.

    When the Inquisitor pleads with Dorian to use forbidden magic to try and save the Commander, the Magister is surprised - not so much by Maxwell's request, but for how readily Dorian himself agrees.

    There is no way it can end well.

    Summary

    Based on a tumblr post by thepunchingbag that mentions the idea of a tranquil inquisitor who is "cured" of their tranquility by gaining the mark.

    Leon Marsh is no Trevelyan, a Chantry ward with few connecting ties, he was made tranquil for reasons he cannot remember. Suddenly all his emotions have returned to him, and he soon finds out his dreams and magic have as well. Waking up handcuffed and being interrogated doesn't help the situation. Now the fate of the world is in his hand and all he can hope for is a happy ending.

    Follows the new adventures of The unlikely herald of andraste who threatens the already fragile if not already broken chantry hold on mages.

    Summary

    Haven is lost. The Inquisition suffering a devastating blow at the hands of the Elder One and his generals. Lost in the Frostbacks, not knowing what is to become of them, the people of the Inquisition mourn. Mourn loved ones, mourn what had been their home, mourn their Herald. Taken so soon after a triumphant victory against the Breach that threatened the world, they watch as the mountain falls upon her; watch as the Elder One escapes in the clutches of its dragon.

    Cullen seals their doom when he fires the signal. Watches in silent agony as the thundering avalanche swallows any hope he had of a future colored with happiness. Turning the cursed lucky coin over in his pocket, his throat parched for lyrium to drown out the pain, he leads the broken people at his back further into the freezing mountains. Yet, for all his despair, hope dares to flicker in his chest.

    Part two of a novelized version of DA:I centering around the love story of Meira Neria Lavellan, formerly of Kinloch Hold and Cullen Stanton Rutherford, Commander of the Inquisition's Forces. Broken and apart, will they find their way back to each other? Will they be able to rise from their pasts? What will become of the Inquisition?

    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.

    Summary

    Now in her early 30s, Kayleigh Ruro-Scott is satisfied with the state of her life and ready for something new. It's just that she expected that "something new" to be her girl band's comeback album, not a demonic invasion of the fantasy world she's woken up in with holes in her memory, a hitchhiker in her head, and a major case of Main Character Syndrome.

    This is a polished version of a text-based game of Fate that I ran for my friend Fox, who's never played a Dragon Age game before in his life. It turns out Inquisition makes a pretty good TTRPG.

    (Please avoid game spoilers in the comments.)

    Summary

    Thoughts from Alistair to his beloved as he opts to stay behind in the Fade...

    Dark rituals, siding with the Architect, and now everything the Grey Wardens have become - Alistair can't shake the fear that fate is punishing the Wardens, and the world, for that night they cheated death, and whatever they allowed to happen to his child in order to make that happen. They shouldn't both be alive, and he fears the grey choices they might keep making to stay that way: one of them has to break the cycle.
