    Summary

    Not all relationships can stand the test of time—especially when said relationship blossoms in tandem with the mounting pressures from the Inquisition.

    Cullen and the Inquisitor grow apart just before Corypheus is defeated. In the aftermath, the tension between them and Cullen’s worsening symptoms from his lyrium withdrawal convince him to leave his post and return to South Reach to be with his family. Almost two years later, the Inquisitor arrives there on business and sees him again for the first time. Unsurprisingly, he has not gotten any less handsome, and she is not any less regretful about what happened between them. But reconciliation is not an easy process, nor is it an inevitable one.

    Summary

    If you’d asked Alistair what he wanted – not that many people ever did – he’d have said, oh, you know, the usual. Eternal rest. The Fade, Maker’s side, all that sort of thing. He wanted to go out like a hero, protecting the woman he loved.

    Of course, that depends on actually "going out" in the first place, not just waking up in the Cousland grounds feeling like an ogre’s trampled on your head. And not having the woman you love right next to you, not even knowing your name, because you haven’t met yet.

    Written for a prompt on the k!meme: "Alistair gets to do over."

    Summary

    A glib, sheltered Circle mage. An uptight, world-weary ex-templar. She can't resist tugging his chain; he won't stop correcting her faults. It shouldn't work, but somehow... it might?

    NOTE: I do not use trigger warnings on chapters for this story.
