    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

    AKA 'UST and Zombies'

    What do you get when the inexperienced Herald of Andraste is sent to The Fallow Mire to rescue a handful of hostages? A lightning rod, considering the constant electrical storms make his already poorly-controlled magic go wild. Oh, and plague zombies. Lots of plague zombies.

    Dorian is enjoying the task of honing Gethrael's magical skill more than he thought, and it has nothing to do with his carefree good looks and (entirely accidental) charm. Probably.

    (This series is written as a serial - you can feel free to start with this installment!)

    Summary

    A hand outstretched, a pat on the back, bread that is broken; small gestures of concern and love take some far and wide. Anaam knows this and spreads herself to her friends, family, and her people of the Kirkwall Alienage. Perhaps, one day, she will spread this very love to herself.

    -

    This fanfic is a love letter to myself and Dragon Age, as well as an attempt at self-love and respect for my writing and me as a whole. This is also completely self-indulgent and tackles topics such as trauma, heritage, and exploration as a whole. If any (or all of this) captures your fancy, then please enjoy!

    Summary

    Stumbling out of the pyre that burns in the heart of the human faith, Hellana Lavellan will have her own faith tested when a strange green Mark brands her as their Herald of Andraste.

    The reluctant Inquisitor is proudly, profoundly, deeply Dalish. And she struggles when history and myth overlap, truth and lies collide. Can she reconcile her identity and faith with a rapidly changing world? Will any of her sacrifices be worth it in the end?

    Armed with a sylvan-wood handled dagger, a glimpse into the far future and with her faith to guide her - she is going to be thrust into the epicentre of a war that has been brewing for four thousand years.

    ***

    The sky bleeds and soon the ashes will fall. Will love and faith survive the ruins of her world? Or will the cold shard of betrayal finally snuff the flames?

    Summary

    Inquisitor Elenara Lavellan triumphed at the Winter Palace, but her victory is only temporary. Upon her return to Skyhold, she learns of a fatal attack on her clan. But things are not what they seem. The Duke of Wycome is spinning a web of intrigue while Lavellan is attacked by a powerful demon in her dreams. And then there is the matter of the Grey Wardens hiding out in the Western Approach – and her still fragile romance with a certain elven apostate.

    At the same time, Dorian needs to come to terms with the fact that he can't rely on his father or mentor for guidance anymore. He must decide who he wants to be moving forward. Lucky for him, the Inquisitor‘s new companion, Tristan Trevelyan, is there to keep him on his toes.

    Summary

    "Here lay the world in tatters and ruins, littered with the remains of once mighty armies and terrible cities. Brought to its knees by the Dread Wolf. The Dread Wolf who was all pride and no wisdom, all guilt and no atonement."

    ---

    Inquisitor Lavellan saved the world, lost the world, then saved it again - loved and lost, loved and lost. Cruel joke upon cruel joke piled atop each other under the disguise of destiny and fate, until the curtains fell on him and Solas with their blades piercing the other's heart. It was a disgustingly poetic end.

    And because his luck was rotten, he wakes at the moment before it all began.

    A second chance or a second doom? Lavellan wasn't sure which he preferred.

    ---

    "Uncover the past, little raven, the Wolf is not the liar here. Those who walk the shadows never leave."

    force this divide.

    Summary

    She'd just wanted to finally find a Nirnroot plant. Instead, she'd found herself saved from an executioner's block by a dragon. The Dragonborn had never asked for anything that had been thrust upon her - and she definitely had never asked to be transported to a whole other world. A world where everything she has devoted herself to learning is of no use. A world torn apart by its own wars, its own magic.

    It would be logical to jump back through the Gate that sent her here. Except that there's a woman who needs her help, her protection - a woman who has been chosen just like she was, all those months ago. And there's no way Wylaia is letting Thedas chew Ellana up like Skyrim did her.

    [A Skyrim/Dragon Age crossover with a Dragonborn who has not completed her quest, and is not the Inquisitor. Tags will be added with each chapter.]

    Summary

    "Teldryn?" He hums.

    "I'm going to strangle Neloth." I state, turning my head to stare at the sky above.

    "Not 'Master' Neloth?" His tone is mocking and I furrow my brows before heaving myself up from the snow. It was deeper than I thought, coming up to my mid-thigh. Fresh snow too, with the way it compacted easily under weight. I pause.

    "I'll strangle Neloth before I strangle you."

    (or alternatively, how a world-weary Dragonborn who has dedicated the rest of her life to study ends up on the frontlines of another disaster.)

    Summary

    "Amaryllis wondered — not for the first time, nor the last — why misfortune seemed to follow her everywhere she went."

    Amaryllis is nine years old when she dies unexpectedly. What she also doesn't expect is to wake, very much not dead, in a forest: naked, alone, and covered in mud. While stumbling along she is found by a woman with wide eyes, white hair, and long, pointed ears. It's not until much, much later that she realizes just how far from home she truly is.

    Summary

    ‘Let us live, since we must die.’

    Dorian has (somehow) survived under the thumb of his father, the reigning king, for an even thirty years. He'd take every chance possible to side-step Halward's plots of arranged marriage and all but selling his only heir into the open arms of a powerful spouse. But Halward, as his greys increase and wrinkles deepen, can see they are both dwindling in their time. Something must be done to straighten out his blaspheming, disrespectful son. A personal guard was only supposed to be a gateway; a stepping-stone to a plentiful future.

    Syrillon, an elf living miraculously freely in the lower streets of Tevinter, is short on funds. Very, very short. He's lucky enough to be well-equipped with blade in hand and the ability to sell his skills to the highest bidder. Royalty isn't his usual charge, but... how difficult could it be?

    Summary

    “Estral had to be a mage. If she failed at that, she couldn’t just up and try something else. Fingering her flute, she thought, ‘I can’t try anything else anyway. It’s not done. And anyway, I hardly have the time.’”

    At twelve years old, Estral Lavellan is encountering her first blocks in her magical studies. Stretched to the limit and resenting the narrow path her magic restricts her to, Estral carries her frustrations with her into the Beyond one night, with disastrous results.
