    Summary

    A month after the Exalted Council, Nepenthe Lavellan has disbanded the Inquisition and is committed to stopping Solas. A task easier said than done without political, magical, or physical power. So when rumors of another Elvhen temple reach Skyhold, she jumps at the chance to leave difficult memories behind and investigate. Alone.

    But she is not the only one seeking the temple.

    Abelas, now an agent of Fen’Harel, intercepts her, and they are forced to work together against a common enemy. As information from each of their worlds comes to light, they find themselves with more in common than they originally thought.

    Or: Two sort-of enemies meet in the woods, angst and mutual pining ensue.
    Or: I wanted to write about Abelas and it somehow became an epic journey.

    I love this story so much. Nepenthe is so relatable and real. (last ch. read - 22)

    Summary

    [Felt like the weight of the world was on my shoulders
    Should I break or retreat at every turn
    Facing the fear that the truth, I discover
    No telling how, all this will work out
    But I’ve come too far to go back now.]

     

    ('Freedom' by Anthony Hamilton, Elayna Boynton)


    -------------------------------
    She has seen empires of Thedas rise and fall, lived through peace and war, and seen the heroes that have come and gone with them. She has fought beside some and watched as the world was shaped in their wake. From Fen'Harel and his Rebellion to Inquisitor Lavellan, each one has tried to save the world in their own way. It never seems to stay saved for long. But now, the world is calling out again. This time, she knows they need someone who has been on both sides and lived in both worlds every day since the fall of Elvhenan.

    If she has learned anything across the ages, it's that stepping up probably won't end well for her. She has seen how it ends. She just knows it can't end the way it did last time. So, she will try.

    So much lore I might die but I love every second and don't want any of them back. Beast of a story that grabs you by the face and doesn't let go. Maori is amazing. The canon characters are absolutely present and I can hear their voices as clear as day. Much action. Much history. Much magic. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelves. Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaangst. 11/10 recommend. (last ch. read - 123)

    Summary

    The Inquisition is wanted again – maybe only to be brought near enough to be dismantled or subdued, but still.

    We are wanted.

    And I am writing with a renewed spirit.

    --

    Sequel to Paper and Ink, beginning at the start of Trespasser. Wallowing in Solavellan hell and introspection.

    Summary

    The first of my people do not die so easily, he had told her once. A fact with which she has become painfully familiar.

    One of the most beautifully painful things I have read in years.
