    Summary

    The page flips, the forest shines bright, and the witch of the wilds sees in her mind a little Dalish camp, and in it an elven girl of great potential kicks within the womb that carries her.

    Sometimes she is a warrior, sometimes a rogue, good with sword or knives or bow, and sometimes...in the most unlikely and improbable of all future’s, she is a mage.

    It is that one, that single whispered future, that the witch of the wilds listens to with the most avid of ears. A story full of loss and sacrifice...but also hope, and knowledge, and the creation of something the elves have not had in far too long—a home.

    A breath, a blink, a cry far off in the distance. In a thousand other stories a babe is born with no connection to the Beyond...but in this one, a mage, despite all the odds, and the little part of Mythal that still lives, that part of her that still looks upon the elves as her people...smiles.

    --

    What if the Dalish Warden was born a mage? An exploration of what a Dalish Mage Origin could have looked like with the new elvish lore that we know from Inquisition, and how it could have changed everything for her people, and Thedas.

    Summary

    "Miriam Amell is as part of Alistair Theirin as his sword and shield, as his Warden's oath, as his lifeblood. To himself, he could admit that he felt more akin to that girl - not girl, not anymore - than he felt to his ancestry. King Maric was far, was not even a memory, whether Miriam Amell was a legend that he saw shaped. And she tasted like a savoriness that he could never remove from his insides."

    Alistair reminisces about tasting Miriam.

    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.)

    Summary

    During the Fifth Blight, Selene Amell and Alistair Theirin fell in love. However, when he was made king, duty demanded he find a wife the Bannorn would find suitable and have an heir. He broke with Amell, he tried to do it quickly and cleanly, no matter how much it hurt him. He failed. He crushed the heart of the woman he loved under his boot. How could he not, when he had chosen duty over love? When Selene later refused to even ask him to perform the dark ritual with Morrigan, planning to sacrifice her own life to kill the Archdemon.
    When neither of them died, Alistair thought they were blessed by the Maker. He planned to keep his dear Amell by his side as an adviser and was shocked when she disappeared right before he presented the Hero of Ferelden to his people. He returned to his duty and the efforts to find a suitable queen.
    Amell found herself in a bit of trouble and in Kirkwall, where she hoped to track down her family. She worked on building a new life, while avoiding Meredith and her Templars. She found herself also dealing with an evil Cult that wants something she would never give them.

One day, the troubled shapeshifter mage is sent physically into the Fade, only to emerge with a glowing green mark on her hand and accused of genocidal murder. Can Mina overcome the odds and be the hero and leader everyone needs her to be, or will the stress kill her/make her kill herself?

With four hopeless romantics in the room (Mina, Leliana, Josephine, and Cassandra), teasing and red faces ensue.

    Summary

    The following is based on the Dragon Age video game series (and most accompanying works), and begins about a third into the game DA: Inquisition. I have tried to include context clues, but I am an imperfect creature. If something is confusing, or you are new to the world of Dragon Age, there are many fan created videos about the various romances on the ‘tube. This tale is about Cullen and the Inquisitor, a rogue Trevelyan, and their friends. There will be some sex from a variety of preferences, it just starts off slowly.
    This work began as a behind the scenes view. I used to think about what the people back at camp or Skyhold would be doing, so I wrote these little chapters, and have been stringing them together. They are leading up to a more original work about what happens in the two years between DA: Inquisition and DA: Trespasser.
    I have tried to rephrase and condense cut-scenes to fit my head canon while staying close to the source text. Oh, and some characters from outside of the Inquisition will be making appearances, so look out for old favorites.
    Use of languages other than Common (English) is intentional, and probably full of errors. Tell me, I'll fix it.
    Enjoy my practice scribbles!

    Summary

    This is the story of Elissa Cousland, Shield Anvil of Fener, and her journey from sole survivor of the slaughter of her kin to defeating the Blight and becoming the Hero of Ferelden.

    This is the Dragon Age/Malazan Book of the Fallen AU that probably no one wanted but that I have had in my head for YEARS. In honor of Dragon 4ge Day and my finally getting my Malazan tattoo (on the same day!), here it is - a retelling of Dragon Age: Origins using the world building of Steven Erickson's Malazan series.

    Summary

    In the end everything comes down to this - the song singing in your ears, in your mind, until there is nothing but the song and the pull towards the depths and you walk into the dark, alone, to become one with the song.

    In War, Victory. In Peace, Vigilance. In Death, Sacrifice.

    Summary

    Keepers of Dalish clans hold as much history and knowledge from the ancient, fallen Empire of Elvhenan as they can. Their Firsts, and Seconds if they have them, are to be the receivers of this knowledge upon the handing over of the mantle of Keeper. Ariwyn is the First to Keeper Deshanna of Clan Lavellan, and her favourite stories have always been on that of Fen'Harel, the Dread Wolf, trickster god of the Evanuris. The fables warn those left of the People to always be wary of Fen'Harel, to keep their minds guarded and their ears turned from his call. She knows the story better than most. Yet, clans claim their people lose their way. She expects herself able to know the way to avoid the song of Fen'Harel.

    Summary

    Characters from the Star Wars Sequels suffer a Lightspeed accident that flights them to the far reaches of the galaxy to a technologically primitive planet (DAW 103) where they are stranded on the continent of Thedas. They find themselves joining the Inquisition, or Corypheus' forces, as they battle for control of Thedas. Meanwhile, Genevieve Trevelyan finds herself in the Fade after an explosion at the Temple of Sacred Ashes. She is called on to lead the forces against a would-be god and his minions. The events comprise of the last act of Dragon Age II through Inquisition. WARNING: This does become very Dragon Age centric, with the Star Wars characters added to the two sides.

    Summary

    Trust is a delicate flower that needs to get nurtured and time to grow. Even more so love. A tale of two disparate Wardens forced together, of finding a way to overcome the distrust, and their own painful past in the time of the Blight.

    Very in-depth, character-focused exploration of the Dalish origin/warden, of all DA:O companions, and their relationship dynamics during the Fifth Blight. Follows and expands on canon events; AU in some ways. Multiple POV's and pairings. Slow burn af.

    This is a COMPLETELY new rewritten and revised version of my story, originally posted on Fanfiction.net. Please see the individual chapter notes for more information about what had been changed. Tags, Chapter Amount (rough estimate) and Rating are subject to change and will get updated with its further progress.
