    Summary

    This is my crazy attempt at a massive backstory, made up largely of existing NPCs, bit characters from media outside the games, and original characters. Hardly any of the usual companions actually feature in this story, thus the lack of (recognizable) character tags in this description.

    Have you ever wondered why Lady Isolde latched on to the bright idea that the Sacred Ashes (of all the mythical things) would cure her husband? Why Hawke owned an entire set of Genitivi’s ‘In Pursuit of Knowledge’ when she had obviously never read it? Why is the Exalted Plains filled with treasure maps, when the Inquisition is so desperately in need of additional funds?

    This is the story of my rebellious archivists, and their desperate attempts to bring back what has been lost to time.

    Summary

    Picking up where 'Echoes of the Dawn' left off, this covers the Inquisition DLC, and what happens next in our 'Avexis is the Inquisitor' AU.

    Having once saved the world, Avexis is now struggling to deal with the consequences of her prior decisions while Thedas continues to need her guidance with everything from rifts to earthquakes to badly behaved Avvar gods. Solas is gone, and her companions are slowly moving on with their lives. Her past choices were dangerous ones - Vivienne is now Grand Enchanter, and Val Royeaux is closer than ever to picking a new Divine, with or without her help, while hundreds of former Circle mages depend on her to decide their fate. In the midst of the pressure, Avexis and Cullen have to decide if they have a future together, despite their pasts.

    Part 2 of the newly formed 'Warp and Weft' series.

    Drinks were had. Secrets were shared. There really is no way to describe this without giving things away. Fenris gets news, they guys get drunk and...

    Summary

    Avexis has been confirmed by Bioware to be in Haven during the events of Inquisition as a Tranquil. She apparently elected Tranquility, and tells Mother Giselle that 'I no longer talk to dragons.'

    So this is based on the biggest what if I have ever tackled: What if Avexis had become the Inquisitor?

    I know that a (former) Tranquil Inquisitor has been done, and done well by the fandom, but this is a slightly unique twist, as one of the things I love to do is take an NPC and build their character out. This fic will answer pressing questions like 'Why didn't she speak during Dawn of the Seeker?', 'How would the Hinterlands look if you had someone who could talk to animals?', 'Why did she decide that losing her emotions was a good trade off for not speaking to dragons anymore?', and 'What is with the fuzzy sock tag, anyway?'

    Bioware owns everything, as always. *Resigned sigh*

    The stupid, fluffy Karaoke AU no one wanted because I couldn't write until I got it out of my head. So fair warning, it's fluffy in here.

    Summary

    Set post-Inquisition, this fic will cover what happened to Asta after the Exalted Council. I don't want to put too many spoilers in the summary, but she will be put in the position of unifying much of Thedas, while trying to unravel Fen'Harel's true plans, using her real skills of research and scholarship, with some old friends and a few new.

    This fic will feature, to some extent, the Society of Rebellious Archivists (Now known as CARROT).

    I'm updating twice a week now, Mostly Mondays and Thursdays.

    Summary

    After the events in Kirkwall, Hawke finds herself reluctantly answering her best friend's request to help the Inquisition with what she has uncovered of Corypheus' plot. Driven by her sense of guilt over her part in the events that took place three years prior, she arrives at Skyhold to meet the Inquisitor.

    Not a complete retelling of Inquisition from Hawke's POV, as it will deviate after Adamant. Mildly AU in places, and will borrow characters from 'Last Flight' as well as Inquisition.

    Bioware owns the characters, and pretty much everything else. I'm just making mud pies in the sandbox. Updating will be sporadic.

    Summary

    How Cullen started to abuse Lyrium rather than use it professionally. Takes place from before DA2, and into Inquisition, and overlaps, without repeating, my long(est) story, Andraste's Asta. (So long. I'm so sorry. I need to edit it, and turn it into three parts. At least. Someday.) This is far more about Cullen's decline into addiction, and then the recovery of his life before lyrium and the memories it stole from him. Love story elements, because apparently I still can't write anything without that, but in my opinion, it does not drive the plot.

    In my opinion, Cullen's comments at the Temple of Dumat about Lyrium bottles licked clean making you reconsider life choices come from experience.

    This, like many of my other works, starts out dark but gets lighter. The title has a double meaning. I'm not talking about Samson, if that wasn't clear.

    Summary

    This turned into something much longer than the short one-off for Dorian that I've had laying around forever and never got around to posting. Set in the world of Andraste's Asta, it's the story of how Dorian left the Imperium, and what happened afterward.

    Super angsty, lots of self-loathing to start. Seriously, don't read it without noting the tags. It's mostly in Dorian's head which can be a pretty dark place.

    People who have read my stuff before will recognize that I start out dark, and it gets better. This work is no exception.

    Summary

    This work is dedicated to all the poor blighted people that romanced Sebastian without spoilers and seriously got pissed off. Only to have Inquisition arrive and have him invade bloody Kirkwall. This is for you, my friends. This is for us.

    Takes place post Andraste's Asta.

    And this now has a prequel! 'Long and Lonely Road'. Not necessary for you to read that first, but it does explain Hawke's experiences as Weisshaupt.

    Summary

    There is a fine line between devotion and blasphemy, and the Trevelyans have been toeing it for ages.

    Evelyn Beatrix Andraste Trevelyan has been surrendered to the Chantry's service at a tender age. Showing little promise with weaponry, she has taken vows as an initiate instead of being inducted into the Templar order as intended by her parents. Once the conclave literally blows up in her face she discovers her life has taken a far different path, one more within her control. With cultists, fanatics and more to deal with, Asta must use her true skills to rebuild Thedas - research and scholarship. Oh, and she is going to have to figure out how to defend herself too. Those dagger self-defense classes in Kirkwall were not nearly good enough.

    Summary

    Related to my longer work - now that I'm finishing it up I have several of these that I just couldn't work into the story. I love this piece of fluff, so I'm posting it as a one shot/related work.

    Pure fluff and silliness. It's cute, dammit. Don't judge me.

    Summary

    Here is a short side story that I have written for Thedas' most bangable - and in my case, most obscure. I mean, come on, Loranil? Seriously? A short story of forbidden love in a time of civil war, between two people that are never supposed to come together.

    For those of you like me who spend too much time reading codex entries, you might want to read the entry on Girl of Red Crossing. It's a song you pick up in the Emerald Graves. The title is from that.

    It's set in the same world as Andraste's Asta, same Inquisitor, same Cullen. That is a minor pairing, and doesn't come in until the end.

    Summary

    This drabble takes place during Chapter 17 of my other, longer work, Andraste's Asta. I would suggest you read that first, and then this silly little piece from Dorian's POV. This is pure fluff and silliness, and I regret nothing.
