    Summary

    "Do you know that you lean away from people when speaking?"

    Solas blinks and frowns at the Herald as she perches on the short fence outside the small building he calls home in Haven.

    "Pardon?"

    She nods to Cassandra's retreating form. "She paces as she talks and every time she comes close to you, you lean away." She pushes off the stone wall and approaches him, but stops short with a grin.

    "You're doing it again."

     

    Solas has been alone for a very long time. Touch is foreign to him. He mistakes unfamiliar for unwanted.

    Summary

    Aerin blames Mythal for enabling her habits. She is grateful that the elvhen goddess had somehow brought her stuff from her dead world. Also, enabling service that allows her to stream her world's music from her phone with unlimited batteries? Thank you. However, she never realised that she had sung some lyrics out while listening to her favourite playlist.

    "I've never been in love, Cassandra!" she says incredulously.

    The Seeker lets out a disgusted sigh. "Then, why sing about a lover who cheats on you?"

    "What about singing a song about asking a boy if he was misled?" Cullen crosses his arms.

    Aerin stares at Cullen, horror clearly written on her face. "You heard me sing about me supposedly giving head?"

    "Oh, dear Maker," Cullen groans, turning red as he covers his face.

    Aerin looks around her Inner Circle. "I've been singing out loud and none of you told me?!"

    Summary

    The Conclave is destroyed, there's a massive hole in the sky, demons pouring from rifts in the Veil plague Thedas, and the Mage-Templar War ravages the land still. Just as all hope seems lost, however, a hero emerges from the chaos: a Dalish elf named Emeril. The Herald of Andraste, bearer of the mark that would seal the Breach once and for all, restorer of order...

    And the most crude, drunken, obnoxious bastard in all of Thedas... Why did we put him in charge, again?

    ** A retelling of the events of Dragon Age: Inquisition through the story of Emeril "Fendalen" Lavellan. **

    Summary

    Inquisitors are always set up to be naturally great fighters and confident leaders... but this story is from the perspective of an introverted, exiled Lavellan with severe trust issues, learning what it means to let go of the past and embrace his destiny.
    But what happens when the weak are forced to lead?

    Includes: Prior history with The Iron Bull, dominant/submissive dynamics and scenes, (eventual) polyromance (Adoribull+ Lavellan = Adoribullan??), anger, loneliness, hidden truths, a dash of blood magic, and so, so much ANGST.
    Warning! Not one for the purists or Pro-Dalish! I mess around with canon dialogue, string out the timescales for realism, make character edits/addons - but I also try to stick to the lore as much as possible. Perspective is from a male Dalish learning that Solas might be justified in his 'negative' view of todays elves. Buckle up, because this one is going to be looooong!

    Summary

    Commander Cullen is just getting settled into his new position within the Inquisition when some old friends from Kirkwall suddenly arrive in Haven with disturbing reports from Therinfal Redoubt. Then his day gets much worse...

    This story takes place behind the scenes of the in-game events and is told from the point-of-view of Cullen, Rylen, Cassandra and some OCs as they attempt to come to terms with the past and find their place within a changing world. They have a lot to contend with - addiction, the dissolution of the Order, the threat of red lyrium and emerging feelings that would never have been permitted under the Chantry's dominance.

    Eventual romance and pairings. Proof that there's humour, sensitivity and lots of feelings under all the armour.

    Summary

    A continuation of Dead Pasts, Dread Futures, and Ixchel Lavellan's battle to find hope for herself, and hope for Thedas. See the first Author's Note for a complete rundown of the first fic.

    “Despite the secrets,” she said. “Despite the blood… Despite the doubt… Despite the weight of everything…”

    “It does not have to be ‘despite,’” Solas replied. “You walk your paths with open eyes, and you have shown love and care for the world not ‘despite’ the darkness you see in it, but including it. Would you be so surprised to inspire the same in others?”

    Ixchel felt her eyes burn despite the widening smile on her face.

    “Though the path forward is unknown—to you, and to me… I find myself with more hope for the future than I have felt in a long, long time, Ixchel. So yes,” he whispered against her lips. “I am happy.”

    Summary

    Lady Emelina Trevelyan has been in love with Cullen Rutherford since the moment she laid eyes on him at the Circle of Magi in Kinloch Hold. When she unexpectedly finds herself thrown into his path again ten years later, she realizes her feelings have never subsided. Too damaged by her abusive parents to believe a man like Cullen could ever love her, Emelina keeps a professional distance, that is, until her parents arrive at Skyhold, determined to marry her off now that her status as Inquisitor is sufficient to make her a good bargaining chip. Caught between the horror of the option her parents have picked and the torture of being close to Cullen when she knows he can never be hers, she reluctantly agrees to Leliana's idea of a fake engagement with her handsome Commander, just until her parents are off her back. Forced into proximity with the only man she has ever loved, Emelina struggles with the complexities of her own insecurities and desires until she realizes that sometimes, it just takes the right Templar to show you that you're special, just the way you are.

    Summary

    rara avis
    [rahr-uh ah-vis]
    origin. latin (tevene)
    noun, plural rarae aves
    1. a rare person or thing; rarity.
    2. literal, a rare bird

    When Dr. Alberta Marieve Shaw left work on Christmas Eve, she was planning on a quiet evening at home before heading off to sit on a beach in the Caribbean for a week, but things do not go according to plan. She finds herself in a completely foreign world, unlike anything she has ever experienced. At first, it seems that nothing in her past or training could have prepared her for this, but perhaps she is better suited to this world than she initially thought. She must navigate a war between mages and Templars, the brutality of Thedas itself, and the whims of a powerful Inquisitor to survive and find her way home.

    Summary

    "She should see fire and go towards Light.
    The Veil holds no uncertainty for her,"
    - The Chant of Light, Transfigurations 10:1

    The singular survivor of the Conclave's destruction has Andraste's sunburst burned into her face. They say it must be a sign. Later they'll say Andraste was the one who cured her Tranquility, that it was proof of the Maker's infinite mercy for those who follow His will.
    Aurelia doesn't know about all that. She's a little busy trying not to set herself on fire to dwell on it.

    Summary

    Tristan Trevelyan is sullen and grim, a frown almost permanent on his face. Years of running from the bounty hunters his family sent after him can do that to a man. When a certain mage from Tevinter joins the Inquisition, Tristan finds the one person that seems able to crack his somber façade.

    But hoping for anything more at times like these is nothing but a mad fancy. Just the title of Inquisitor is enough to drive anyone away, and perhaps it's better that way. Things don't usually go very well for those who find themselves close to him.

    Summary

    Inana Lavellan can't see most things - not in the waking world, anyway. The Fade is another matter, shining like a beacon just beyond the Veil. She loves the Fade, where everything is clear. Most clear of all is the spirit-teacher she has had for as long as she can remember. He taught her when she was still a child how to interact with spirits without fear. He shows her ancient dreams and memories. He talks with her about magic and philosophy. She has learned so much from him that it hardly even matters that their timelines seem to meet at random, and he doesn't always - or even often - remember who she is.

    Imagine her surprise when her dreams lead her to the Conclave, compassion leads her to the burned-out temple in the wake of the explosion, necessity leads her to begin attempting to close the Breach - and she discovers that the spirit she has known all her life exists in the waking world as a man calling himself Solas.

    Currently updates at least once a month, more often if I have time and inclination.

    Summary

    It was coming from the dragon’s corpse, somehow. He stood up and crept closer, noticing fractures spreading across the dragon- like it was made of shattered glass. He gasped as the fractures began to burn. It came from everywhere and nowhere all at once, each piece immolating from the edges inward. Within 30 heartbeats, the flesh of the dragon had burned into nothing, leaving only the white skeleton behind.
    What Bull could only describe as a plume of energy rose up from the skeleton, swirling into a spot in front of the corpse. Suddenly, with a flash of purple light, a girl materialized in the spot where the energy was flowing.
    Bull couldn’t speak. He almost didn’t believe what was happening. The energy had been absorbed into the girl in front of him. She was small, dark-haired, with olive skin. He didn’t recognize her robes, but the green and beige suited her. He could tell by her angulated features that she was an elf without ever seeing her ears. She looked at the ground nervously, grabbing one arm with the other and biting her lip.
    “Uh... hi?” she squeaked.

    Summary

    The Warriors of Light and their companions face Omega, prepared for whatever may come. To be honest, after this, they only wanted a vacation. Maybe a weekend getaway at Costa del Sol- they deserved it, after helping to end a war, did they not?

    But, as usual, fate has other plans. Things go wrong and the Adventurers find themselves in a land not their own. Their world was at war. They only want to go home.
    ----

    Ellana Lavellan never wanted to be Herald of Andraste or Inquisitor, but she really had no choice, did she? She finds herself in Crestwood, expecting to find a downtrodden community barely holding onto life, but instead finds a group of warriors calling themselves Adventurers that are hellbent on protecting the little town.
    ----
    The only way home is through the Inquisitor. The Adventurers throw their lot in with the Inquisition. They were in the process of saving one world- why not work to save another?
