    Summary

    A tale of erroneous first impressions, good intentions and shenanigans...

    "Are you all set, honey?"

    "You're gonna get shot wearing a get up like that, boss," he blurted out. Couldn't help himself. Tact had never been one of his strengths.

    She looked down at her uniform and laughed. "You'd think so, but no. People have started to recognize it and I get messed with a lot less than before." Nora paused, thoughtful. "Oh...I guess I didn't tell you."

    "Tell me what?"

    Nora held out her hand and he took it without thinking. She shook it with a solemn sort of twinkle in her eye. "I'm General Nora Cabot, of the Norfolk Cabots, Commonwealth Minutemen. How do you do?"

    Summary

    Twenty years in the Circle taught Owain Trevelyan to survive, to bury his hopes and dreams and take nothing--and no one--at face value. When the mage rebellion lands him in the Inquisition, he’s called upon to confront his past and help shape the future. The skeptic is asked to hope, as Thedas hangs in the balance.

    A DAI remix through the eyes of a male mage Trevelyan. Explores his inner world and relationships, especially with the Lady Seeker--a slow burn, friends-to-lovers, low-key romance situation. Just two people trying to find room for love as they navigate war, duty, and the expectations we place on ourselves and others.

    A note on form: chapters average around 4-5k words, relatively self-contained “episodes” with serialized elements. Now contains 100% more Trespasser. Thanks for reading!

    Summary

    "What do you call the stick with the bowl on the end?" she asks, and Deacon raises an eyebrow.

    "Uh, you lost me, Boss."

    "The thing you eat with. Like a fork or a knife but for soup," Clara says, and she's making the motion as if she's eating cereal while she's speaking, as if using the muscles will help her remember if she ever knew it.

    "A spoon?" Deacon says it almost as more of a question, like he's unsure if that's the answer or not.

    Clara snaps her fingers and grins widely. "Yes! Spoon!"

    -

    the sole survivor's first language isn't english, and deacon's first language is bullshit, so together, they make a pretty terrible team.
