    *****
    "When I get tired of finding
    All of the fears I've been hiding
    You gave me a breath, and tell me to rest
    You never left
    I can, I can, I can hear You, calling me by name
    Pulling me up from under my shame
    I'll never be the same
    I can face anything, so let it rain
    You are my anchor
    So steady me, steady me now
    You are my anchor
    You're keeping my feet on the ground
    In angry oceans, You've never broken through
    Every wave of the storm
    You are my anchor"

    Summary

    Cullen found his curiosity piqued. “Can you speak any other languages?”
    With a sigh she straightened and reeled off an impressive list “Orlesian obviously, Antivan, Nevarran.” She paused and tapped her finger to her chin in thoughtful contemplation. Cullen, despite himself was drawn to the action so close to her mouth, her plush pink lips looked soft and tempting.
    “My Tevene is rather rusty which is why I’m so glad Master Pavuus is a member of your little court. And I only know a few phrases in the Avaar tongue. Just enough to make the role-plays believable you understand, ” she winked with the final playful admission.
    Cullen couldn't help but imagine her naked on furs, backlit by flame and presenting for her ‘thane.’

    He swallowed down the lump that had formed suddenly in his throat and cursed the bulge making his breeches uncomfortably tight.

    ---
    Amie is excited to be part of the Inquisition and eager to help in her own unique way. However she doesn't realize she has caught the attention of the previously unlucky in love Commander. A Courtesan AU that's honestly just a bit of fun, but will quite possibly hit you in the feels.

    NSFW will start in Chapter 3 and then not stop XD

    Summary

    Delphine always told Elazar she would do anything to help him if he was ever in trouble, even knowing his knack for finding it. She didn't expect to be helping him save the world after someone blows up the Conclave and tears a hole in the sky.
    Nor did Delphine expect to be falling for anyone, let alone a troubled, former templar, while she's watching her best friend shape the future of their world with a green glowing hand.

    Summary

    It’s been two decades since Orianna Trevelyan laid eyes on her sister. Erased like a stain from the tapestry of her family tree, locked away in Starkhaven’s Circle and left to languish. The rebellion gives her freedom, a renewed chance at a life. And then it’s gone in an instant. A wound in the sky, the world at war, her sister returned, hand outstretched, palm shorn in two by the magic their family so loathed. And an ex-templar that she should fear, but doesn’t.

    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

    Everyone has that one person that will be there for the majority of their life, that one person that the universe has decided will know you for years. It could be your best friend, you worst enemy, or the guy you get bread from every morning. This person is what's known as your Voice, the one person you can communicate telepathically with at will, among other things.
    Meanwhile, Velania's a primal-school-specialized apostate just trying to stay afloat amid her hurricane of a life. Antivan-born and Fereldan-raised, she's a survivor of Kinloch Hold and an escapee of the Kirkwall Circle, and is now living in the war zone that is the Hinterlands with an apple-loving hart. To top it all off, her Voice is a Kirkwall Templar, whose identity is unknown to her, yet he knows who she is. Oh, and did I mention he can be more than a bit of an ass? Cuz that's a thing. Whoop-de-doo.
    When she meets the Herald of Andraste and is roped into joining the Inquisition, she reunites with old friends and old....not-at-all friends.
    Maker help Thedas.

    Summary

    When Daenerys attended the Conclave, she, along with all the other rebel mages, was hoping for peace to be brokered, what she didn't expect for the Temple of Sacred Ashes to be destroyed in a horrifying explosion that killed all in attending, except for her.

    She wakes in chains accused of mass genocide and blamed for the giant tear in the fade that threatens to swallow the whole of Thedas.

    Proving her innocence whilst leading a 'heretical' organization was not how she saw her future playing out, but it might just be the only way she can make a better world.

    Summary

    “The story told of Commander Cullen and Lady Anyssa is overly romanticized. At least that is what Cullen will tell you. Anyssa will not publicly comment; she will only give a shy grin if asked about it. The story the public knows, the one Varric perpetuates is not all that occurred between them. If you genuinely want to understand their relationship and why it is so inspirational (and romantic in my opinion), you need to know of these important moments as well.”

    ~Seeker Cassandra Pentaghast, 9:42 Dragon

    Cullen and Anyssa grew quite close to one another despite their differing backgrounds. One a former Templar attempting to atone for his past while overcoming a lyrium addiction. The other a historian from a completely different world using her education and skills to get by while overcoming a traumatic experience of her own. This is only part of their story...

    Summary

    A girl is thrown into Thedas and tries to do her best to help the individuals affected by the Breach, the Inquisition, and all the other hellish things happening.

    If only she could get He Who Hunts Alone to stop sniffing around her...
    He sure is pretty though.

    Summary

    After the tragic death of her husband, Nea Willows (formerly Surana) a dedicated alchemist and spirit healer, has felt lost. The war with Mages and Templars had already gone too far, and then it cost her her loved one. She prayed Andraste and Maker to deliver peace once more onto Thedas. When the Divine conclave was called, she thought it might be the answer to her prayers.

    But alas it was not to be.

    Disaster striking as the sky is torn open, it was more clear than ever what she would have to do: join the newly formed Inquisition and help them mend the sky and bring the long awaited peace and order back to Thedas, to put an end to the chaos and suffering.

    But by pledging herself to the cause, she had no idea that it would also bring someone back into her life, someone she didn't think she'd ever get to meet again: Cullen Rutherford, now the Commander of the Inquisition's forces. Their last meeting had been painful and that pain had been difficult to leave behind. Their reunion would bring out memories long forgotten.

    Cullen himself, wasn't expecting to meet his youthful love ever again. And even less, to his shock, he wasn't expecting to see her with a child.
