    Summary

    It was a matter of need, really. Not so much a want.

    It had always been so simple. A sway of her full hips, a tilt of her head, a prolonged moment of eye contact. She had them wrapped around her finger in moments.

    And yet, her eye contact was met with an awkward shuffle of his feet and a quick end to the conversation. Her swaying hips drove him further away than they drew him in. And a tilt of her head had him stuttering apologies for disappointing her.

    Cullen Rutherford, Commander to the Inquisition’s forces, was impossible.

    ----------

    With ghosts from her family and her days in the circle haunting her, Eleine Trevelyan must navigate her murky, unwilling role as Herald of Andraste and the Inquisitor. She was not the saviour any of them wanted, nor had she ever wanted to be a saviour. Can she become more than what her past made her? When it seems not to want to let her go?

    Summary

    Waking up in chains and not knowing how you got in them is bad. Waking up in chains with a glowing green hand and surrounded by strange people with swords in an alternate fantasy world with no memory of how you even got there is even worse.
    Sounds like a bizarre dream doesn't it? But even my imagination couldn't compare to this new reality.
    Now I have to learn to survive in a world where half the population are worshiping me as some chosen saviour while the other half wants me dead. It would be easier if I wasn't a total pacifist who can't bring myself to kill a nug let alone a person.
    I miss my simple old life. The one where I'm not fighting for my life and watching people die. I miss my home, my family, my dog, the internet.... Chocolate.
    But there is no denying there is something captivating about Thedas. Maybe it's the Magic. Maybe it's the different races or creatures. Maybe it's the people I've come to love like family. Maybe it's the dragons!
    Or maybe it's the mysterious elf with the stormy blue eyes that I can't seem to stay away from.

    Modern girl in Thedas story with a few twists. Plenty of action, angst and laughs with a real slow burn.
    Hope you enjoy :)

    Summary

    The war between the mages and the Templars is long over, and all Amelie Trevelyan wants to do is start again, putting the memory of the bloody war and the years of imprisonment in the Circle behind her by moving away from her childhood home to find a new life in Val Royeaux. But beneath the glitz and glamour of Val Royeaux society lies the scars of its violent past, and what she thinks is a new life and a fresh start, may be no more than a bitter reminder of what came before

    Summary

    Lauriel is a MGiT, but unlike MOST Of the women in the MGiT stories she’s read, Lauriel finds that she’s just had it a bit rougher or did for a while until she found her “true” calling: thievery. And boy does she love every moment of it. Yes, she has immense knowledge about the coming Inquisition but she wisely keeps that to herself at least until she does something only a rookie would do and ends up captured by several soldiers of said fledgling Inquisition. Now, Lauriel must prove her worth to the Herald AND his advisors while trying to find a way out of the Inquisition’s grasp which is easier said then done when in this version of Thedas, anyone who is caught stealing is bound by a collar made of silver and lyrium and forced to serve whomever put the collar around their throats, but Lauriel has patience and alot of it as, after all, even master thieves have a level of patience that would put the holiest of saints to shame.

    Summary

    She barely remembers her childhood in Ostwick, but that has long ceased to matter. Liviana is a slave, bound to the Ludus Atropos of the mighty Tevinter Imperium, and that is her lot in life. And for the most part, it is a relatively comfortable life and she is content, having sold her conscience and soul years ago in order to survive.

    Until her friend takes an unimaginable risk and fights back against the ties that have bound them, and Liviana is forced to choose between freedom and death, or worse. She decides to run, but everything is so new and the world is suddenly so very lonely and large. What's a former slave to do with her life now that she is free? And why the hell is she agreeing to stay in Kirkwall? Surrounded by the taint of blood magic and finding herself in the company of mages, of all things, Liviana struggles to discover what it means to live.

    And maybe, even how to love.

    Spans DA2 and DAI.

    When Dr. Alberta Marieve Shaw headed home Christmas Eve, she was planning on a quiet evening before heading off to sit on a beach in the Caribbean for a week, but, despite her desires, things do not go according to plan.

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

    Sometimes Lyra Lavellan wondered just how she ended up running what seemed like the largest, weirdest clan ever, and how she and the apostate elf were clearly the only sane ones there.
    Sometimes Solas wondered how all his plans kept developing so many complications.

    Summary

    OC character: Inquisitor Lavellan’s kin. One other Lavellan survived the explosion at the Conclave. She joins the party and finds romance with Cullen. Not really but somewhat slow burn, lots of fluff, and there might be a skippable smut chapter at the end for those who don’t want one. Maybe around 13 chapters for this piece. (Already writing here and there, so will definitely finish!) :) Enjoy, and please leave comments!

    Summary

    “’Give me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy’,” I exhaled, picturing the Inquisitor with only one arm. My voice sounded hollow, even to my own ears.

    Solas’s eyebrow raised, but he did not immediately reply. His sight joined mine, staring at the empty place where the Herald of Andraste and Cullen had previously stood.

    “You think this story will have a poor end?” He asked, after a second of contemplative silence.

    I know it, I thought.

    ——————

    There was no hiding from it, no denying it; no rationalising or trivialising. This was a land I thought I knew so well, alive and breathing before my very eyes. This was the land of so many legends, so many myths and mysteries; the history of its earth embedded in the soil below my very feet, the blood, bones and tears of thousands I had never thought actually existed until now.

    ——————

    [My own interpretation of the 'Modern Girl in Thedas' trope, with the woman in question having full memory of the events of Dragon Age: Origins, 2 and Inquisition. She is NOT the Inquisitor. Striving for a realistic approach.]

    Summary

    Piper knew she was courting danger, going out alone to search for her sister, but she didn't expect things to go sideways in quite this fashion.

    Modern girl(s) in Thedas, because it's such a fun trope. Each chapter is 1K to 3K words, based on a randomly selected prompt. Point of view will change from chapter to chapter, but it mostly revolves around Piper. There will be 100 chapters in all.

    Summary

    Ashae is not your average person, in fact, she’s not even human, she’s a griffon who disguises herself as a human woman. Filled with wonder at where all of her kin have gone, she begins a search the hopes of finding answers only to be caught up in the events of the 5th Blight. Journeying with last two Grey Wardens, she comes to learn that she may very well be the last living griffon on Thedas. After revealing herself to them, Ashae promises to stay with them until the Blight is ended but ends up interacting more with the humans, elves, and dwarves of Thedas as time goes on. However, once the Breach in the sky opens Ashae finds herself join up with the Inquisition where she reveals herself to the inner circle though two of them already know her secret. But a certain human male has caught her eye, however, there is a major issue. She's a griffon and he's a human. Meaning that they cannot be mates and thus Ashae believes that she cannot have him until a spell is revealed that can make her a human...permanently. But will she take that path and throw away her true form for a human who may not even share her feelings?
