    Summary

    A bundle of parchment papers filled with common and elvhen scribbles and paw prints was found all over Ferelden and the Free Marches. It has mostly been reviewed, some can't quite be read. Two Journals was also found in a sack covered with darkspawn blood. Sack was disposed of, papers undamaged.

    (additional note was added below)

    Atrocious handwriting. Gave us quite the headache.

    Paper or ink is enchanted.

    Summary

    A probably AU tale of the star-crossed, slow-burning, quite complicated relationship between Warden Surana, elven Circle mage, and Cullen Rutherford, High Commander of the Inquisition's military forces and former Templar.

    The timeline of the story spans from two years before the start of events in Dragon Age: Origins through the time of the Trespasser DLC for Dragon Age: Inquisition. Enjoy!

    Summary

    9:20 Dragon.

    As Grandfather and Gwyn stood up, Loghain Mac Tir bowed to Gwyn just as if she was a grown-up lady. "If I may, thank you for your conversation tonight, my lady."

    "Yes," Howe agreed, smiling down at her. "I always enjoy our interviews, child. She’s a real little spitfire, Bryce."

    "No," Loghain said suddenly, before Father said anything back to Arl Rendon. "She’s a firebrand."

    Gwyn Cousland makes her first visit to the royal court at Denerim when she is ten years old. As she meets Prince Cailan and his inner circle, she learns ins and outs of politics she was blind to at the country estate in Highever, and makes a favorable impression on the taciturn and forthright teyrn of Gwaren.

    Summary

    Retelling of Dragon Age 2 through the eyes of Riona Hawke, a Fereldan fugitive trying to carve out a new life in Kirkwall. Bethany, not Carver, survives despite Hawke being a mage. Does not slavishly follow the plot of the game, makes an attempt to smooth out the timeline of the events as well as fix the many logical inconsistencies.

    Reposting, with some minor edits and corrections. Sequels to follow.

    Summary

    It started with an unexpected accident that ended her first life. But by some miracle, she received a second chance. The catch? She found herself in the body of a game character who was supposed to die.

    Now, she takes a new name and discovers new abilities to navigate through the familiar game world turned real. If she plans it carefully, perhaps she can make it better than the limited outcomes she knew from the game.

    Summary

    After being encouraged to become king and marry Anora, Alistair's relationship with his new queen develops in ways no one could predict. How can he manage new responsibilities, a marriage of convenience, and the witch who's the mother of his bastard child?

    Plays with events from DA:O, and Witch Hunt. A healthy mix of romance, action, adventure, slice of life wholesomeness and graphic smut.

    Summary


    Fresh out of Redcliffe's defense against the undead, the worn-out group spots Arl Eamon's wife sneaking out of the castle.

    “Well… We survived until so far, resisting hordes of the undead. We can take a few more blows. Stay alive, my lord,” the warden uttered in a hoarse voice. “As for payment later, Alistair has been telling us he always misses Redcliffe’s famous spicy date pies. Now all my dreams are either archdemons or pies, no in-between.”

    ---
    Most chapters should accompany character art I'm painting and adding as I go.
    Scenes involve DA:O's female city elf protagonist and friends, with a focus on her relationship with Teagan.
    It starts during the Arl of Redcliffe quest, so I tried to avoid too much exposition to explain the story.

    Summary

    "It is not any of the nouns. The miracle is the adverbs, the way things are done. It is the way love gets done despite every catastrophe." - Daniel Handler, Adverbs

    A series of one-shots about arriving at love: immediately, obviously, arguably, and all the other ways it is done.

    Fenris/Hawke - immediately, particularly, frigidly, naturally
    Cassandra/Varric - obviously, symbolically, truly (latest)
    Lavellan/Solas - clearly, wrongly
    Carver & Hawke - arguably
    Mahariel & Morrigan - briefly
    Anders & Hawke - soundly
    DA2 Companions - collectively

    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

    Though this is "part four," the rest of the series is not required. This is a stand-alone fic.
    --
    Shadows fall, and hope has fled. Steel your heart; the dawn will come 

    The Inquisitor's heart broke when her family of friends scattered to the winds in the wake of the Exalted Council. She was emptied of hope as Solas's power and reach grew. Left with a dead past and only a dread future to look forward to, Ixchel Lavellan lay down and chose not to wake up.

    As the Veil began to unravel and the fabric of reality tore apart at the seams, a desperate ally sacrificed everything to give her a second chance.

    And Ixchel will never forgive him.

    --
    time travel/fix it fic.
    tw: suicide, first chapter. She gets better. But themes of suicidal depression throughout
    nsfw chapters marked: **
    Plot & Politics heavy!

    Summary

    Hawke spends all of his time looking after everyone but himself, and Anders has spent three years waiting for a phone call that will never come. Sometimes healing and salvation come in the form of piano bars, bouncy castles, gratuitous amounts of beer, and friends that won’t stop giving you shit because they love you. Tags will be updated as needed, this is a rough estimate.

    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

    Elissa Cousland never expected to be a Grey Warden, but she doesn’t mind it. She can fight evil, develop her gift from her mother’s bloodline to call upon wolves, and pursue real love rather than fulfilling some grim noble duty. She has never been attracted to men, so that freedom matters to her. She just wishes her conscription had not corresponded with the loss of her whole family, or so she fears, as well as her lover.

    When she meets the bard-turned-sister, Leliana, she is sure that this will be special. Leliana has a sad past too, a betrayal by her former mentor Marjolaine, but Elissa soon comes to suspect that there is more grief and regret than that in her past, and that it is much more recent and much less morally straightforward. The rupture with Marjolaine happened years ago, but Leliana was acutely unhappy when she departed Lothering....

    (A story that occurs in the same world as my “Spells” series. Can be read as a standalone; no prior reading of other stories needed.)

    Summary

    Other prompts I've written for the Dragon Age Drunk Writing Circle, originally posted on Tumblr. For Fenders, Handers, HawkeBela, MerriBela, Kanders and Nanders, please see the specific fics in this collection.

    Chapters range from ficlets to oneshots, fluff to angst, hurt/comfort to smut. As a general rule my writing is unapologetically pro Mage / Chantry critical.

    If you'd like me to write you a mini-fic, drop me a prompt on Tumblr. I post fics on Friday nights, and will then try to update here.

    Summary

    At the beginning of the Fifth Blight, before anyone but a Warden realized what was coming, Duncan went recruiting. He needed more Wardens, and sent the recruits straight to the army at Ostagar. Except for his last three.

    Orzammar, Highever, and Kinloch Hold. Duncan's last recruits were a middle-aged criminal that to dwarves wasn't a person, a playboy nobleman broken by grief, and a timid mage who'd supported her friend and watched everything crash around her. They were the most unlikely of recruits - but would find themselves forced to work together and against everything to defeat an Archdemon. If they could defeat their own demons first.
