    Summary

    Ellana Lavellan is an exotic dancer at the Pearl, the strip club owned by her long-time friend (and friend-with-benefits) Zevran Arainai. She enjoys her job, her sex with Zevran, and her best friend Dorian, but there's still something missing. Years ago, she fell desperately in love with an apostate named Solas, who vanished suddenly, taking with him all her heart and all her self-respect-as well as a secret that could destroy her. Current events in Thedas are troubled: Venatori terrorists are striking more and more frequently, and negative public sentiment against mages after Kirkwall has Ellana and Dorian nervous and unsettled. But a mysterious mage has appeared, combating the Venatori, who bears a striking resemblance to the Elvhen god Fen'Harel...

    Summary

    This is a previous work that I am revisiting and revamping, hence 2.0. I have always loved this story and now that my writing has improved, I really wanted to see what I could do with it now.

    Scarlett Trevelyan is a Mage, who has had little to fear from Templars in her past. She knows that a battle is raging between Mages and Templars, but she is not so willing to take sides. Her life in the Ostwick Circle was mundane at best, boring at worst. She isn't prepared for the coming events because she isn't a fighter. Her skills lie in the healing arts, in spirit magic.

    This story will also be told from both perspectives, Cullen and Trevelyan.

    Summary

    I sat down to write this, knowing I wanted to write about the moments not seen in the game. My idea was to write the full romance of Cullen and Trevelyan and it branched out from there. Most of the scenes for this work will be glimpses into their world. I hope to encompass the entire game within these stories, but I won't be rehashing in-game content.

    Summary

    Athenna Lavellan never saw herself as much of a leader. When fate rears its ugly head, however, she is thrown into a place filled to the brim with shems calling her the Herald of Andraste. She has no choice now but to step up and save the world. She learns she is not alone when she gains the friendships of an unlikely group of heroes and a charming commander.

    This story is a novelization of DAI with a strong focus on the Cullen/Lavellan relationship.

    Some plot changes, scenes moved/replaced with original writing. I tried to stray from word by word DAI and put my own little twist on it. Please enjoy!

    Summary

    This never should’ve happened.
    We never should’ve met.
    Love shouldn't bloom from such tragedy, and yet here I stand falling for a woman many consider the messenger of Andraste.
    It's blasphemous.

     

    There's something more to the Commander.
    I could feel it.
    Something beneath the ex- Chantry boy's diffidence, something primal.
    But I'm now considered a key figure in the religion he follows.
    And even though I know I'm still just a woman, he sees someone closer to his god than he's ever known.
    Still, I won't stop trying to bring out the Lion I know lurks beneath all that armor.
