  1. Summary

    Assorted One Shots and brief stories set in the extensive personal canon of the Lenyaverse. With the focus on being mostly my Warden Lenya Mahariel and her relationship to Alistair Theirin.

    However, these stories stand on their own and thus no knowledge of the main story "Of Elves And Humans" is needed to read and (hopefully) enjoy them.

  2. Summary

    These are the main stories and extensive, character-focused longfics about my personal canon world state, spanning all throughout the three games.

    It starts with Lenya Mahariel, reluctant Dalish Grey Warden and her journey in the world of Thedas, during the Blight and afterwards. And (hopefully) later on will also include Mia Hawke, Warrior, smartass and Champion Of Kirkwall, as well as Sareyn Lavellan as Inquisitor. Because ladies run the (my) world.

    Summary

    After a short and steamy encounter with Alistair, Kalya Tabris' life is irrevocably changed. When Alistair leaves for duties in the Korcari Wilds, Kalya heads to Highever hoping to be recruited into the Wardens herself, but much more is at play that she could have possibly imagined. A retelling of Origins from a slightly different perspective.

    Summary

    Caden Tabris never actively went looking for trouble, but it found her on her wedding day no less! A deadly encounter with a noble human sparked off a journey Caden never expected, tearing her from her family in the process. Caden must learn to trust again, battling her demons from her previous life, possibly even finding a new family if she can stop resisting her fellow Wardens attempts at kindness.

    (Content Warning: there is an attempted sexual assault early on as per the city elf origin details, and it leads to some flashbacks throughout the story)

    Disclaimers: BioWare owns everything, including a portion of my soul; I'm just grateful to play and write in their world. Story title comes from Brandi Carliles amazing song Hard Way Home.
    (This is also posted on FF.net as is the previous draft of this work under the title This Is War.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Normally i avoid cousland/alistair stories like the plague, bc fandom made it to a notp for me over the years with shitty tropes/characterization, and the hyperfocus on being royal/becoming king/queen as the only "correct" ending for warden/alistair as a whole (not just cousland/alistair.)

    This writer however gets it all right, and portrays Alistair as competent, snarky and comfortable in his skin during intimacy (and outside of it, in other fics). Stellar banter and descriptions too, which makes this established relationship smut with feelings to a joy to read.

    Summary

    His eyes are closed and he is breathing hard and then he feels her reach up to gently smooth his hair back from the slickness of his forehead. They don’t speak of it, but he remembers, even after the pain is gone.
