    Summary

    The southern half of Thedas has been wracked with calamity and war too many times to count. To most, it's all they can do to simply stay afloat. Alive. Others might find cracks to weave their way into, looking for solace in a world that seems to try and end itself at least every other decade. Tradition, in some places, brings order. In others, it's used as kindling for age-long wars stoked in and out of the public eye.

    Elves are smattered in clusters across the map, bound to their lives in cities or else as Dalish clansmen. The latter, sometimes composed of friendly hunters and traders, can also lend themselves to a more intransigently secretive lifestyle. Living like ghosts, deep inside the wood of thousand-year-old forests, bringing ruin as it suits them. A clan so cut off from the world of man should be safe from their folly.

    That is unless the Maker, or some other unseen force, provides a helping push.

    Tl;dr: elf man goes through a long-winded journey through numerous Oh-My-God-It's-The-End-Of-The-World events, only to end up on the hero's side by the hand of fate. Yay for adopted elf dads :)

    Summary

    Ripped from her home in the Free Marches at the age of six, Hypetia Amell has always considered herself unlucky, a legacy of ill fortune inherited from her mother which followed her across the Waking Sea. The best she could hope for was to live peacefully, cloistered and bored for the rest of her days. Her life veers off this expected course however, when she crosses paths with a Grey Warden who offers the promise of freedom and purpose.

    Summary

    Regret curls in his stomach as he pants, out of breath and bloody. Blood slips down his face in a twisted caress. His hands are clenched so tightly around his sword that he is sure his knuckles would ache if not for the bloodlust and battle joy raging inside him. If there is anything he has learned in this past year of his life it is that he no longer fears death only regret. His life flashes through his eyes as a list of mistakes and choices he wishes he had never made, or choices he desperately wishes he had. It has never been as strong a feeling as it is here and now, facing down the archdemon on the top of Fort Drakon. He has but a moment, but it feels like an eternity, as he rushes forward, sliding beneath the monstrous dragon’s neck, blood pouring down on him as the dragon rears its head in a roar before collapsing. His sword falls to end the archdemon’s life and as the light envelops him, he lets go of his regrets.

    Summary

    A desperate knock on the door woke her up in the middle of the night and the healer from Redcliffe was almost sure that her friend Varric was the one crying her name outside. The dwarf had turned her life upside down every time he appeared, and she had the feeling that this time wouldn't be different at all. When she opened, an elven apostate, a Seeker from the Chantry and a critically injured warrior with a strange magic mark on his hand were waiting behind his friend.

    Saving Glenn Trevelyan's life was Alyna's first mission for the Inquisition, although she was not aware of the consequences that their accidental encounter and her next decisions would mean for Theda's fate.

    Summary

    Lavellan had come a long way- further than anyone previously thought.

    After barely escaping the Blight ravaging Fereldan, he had thought the Free Marches would become his new home, but unrest in Kirkwall would send him back to the land he fled- and possibly save the world in the process.

    A prequel to Halla Statuettes & Mabari Figurines

    Summary

    A small rewrite of the ending of the Crestwood break up scene between Solas and Lavellan. Dialogue is still canon, but their actions are flushed out in a more fulfilling, heart-wrenching way. At least to me. ;)~

    I have never written anything before, but this moment was just playing over and over in my head so I had to get it out into words. Please indulge me.

    Summary

    Graeme Amell has grown from a doomed pawn in the Circle to be the reluctant Hero of Ferelden, then took on the responsibility of rebuilding Vigil's Keep and leading the remaining Grey Wardens. And if talking darkspawn and conspiring nobles wouldn't be enough, he has to face treason among his own ranks. Amell becomes a runaway apostate, searching for purpose and a place for himself, and that is how he finds out about distant relatives of his living in Kirkwall. By travelling there, Amell finds more than family and a former lover thought to be dead. He finds a cause he can fight for.

    In short: A story of love, betrayal and revolution before and during the mage-templar war.

    Summary

    Being conscripted into the Grey Wardens was the best thing that ever happened to the casteless Sirra Brosca. By saving her life, Duncan gave her a chance to live a new one, on her terms, and she gladly walked away from Orzammar with a skip in her step.

    Alistair was not prepared to discover Duncan's newest recruit was a damnable pretty dwarven woman who quickly turns his world upside down. Neither of them expected Ostagar to go south and leave them as the only Grey Wardens in Ferelden.

    Now, the two remaining Wardens are all that stands between the hubris of men and a Blighted scourge. Recruiting a motley crew of companions as they work to build an army, they strive to protect a land bent on self-destruction.

    Can a dwarf raised to believe she was worthless and a bastard prince truly save the world before the Archdemon devours them all? Will they be able to hold onto their own happiness in the face of politics and the duty that cannot be forsworn?

    Summary

    Born and raised in a palace in Ostwick, Lena only wanted the one thing that she as a noblewoman couldn't have; Freedom. When her father accuses her of corrupting her twin brother, Leon, Lena is given two options: be executed for treason or travel to Ferelden and join the Templar order or chantry as is tradition with the youngest child in the Trevelyan family. After a failed escape attempt leaves her handcuffed in the back of a carriage and riding through the Frostbacks, she gets caught up in a dark plot that gets her memory wiped.

    Now people told her she had stumbled out of a rift but she doesn't remember any of it let alone who she is or where she's from. All she knows is that she was convicted of multiple murders including Divine Justinia which she just knows she's innocent. Now they want her to clean up a mess she doesn't believe she's made.

    Summary

    Intent: A retelling of DA:I and the Trespasser DLC (eventually). (There *will* be hints at Trespasser spoilers)

    Dalish mage prodigy Erenne of Clan Lavellan, caught in the cataclysmic Conclave Explosion, must rise to her supposed destiny as the savior of Thedas - she is a force of nature that strikes fear in the hearts of her enemies. It is easy to forget that she is a woman, not a concept - she has needs, desires, dreams, and fears.

    Summary

    Noble families generally get gossiped about. Varric, always curious to know the tragic details, brings one rumor up to Hawke when they're both drunk. Namely that the Amell family line is a bit... inbred. He expects Hawke to laugh it off. He doesn't. Instead, his friend offers him a candid, if grim, look into his solitary, lonely life as 'man of the house' - and all the baggage that entails. (Warnings and info inside (read note.))

    Summary

    Banreas Lavellan has had a hard life and thought she had a second chance at it when she joined the Circle; but it was not meant to be. Her life is turned upside down after the events of the Conclave. She is thrust into a new world of chaos and she is burdened with the role of Inquisitor.
    Banreas learns to trust, make new friends, finds love, and explores new possibilities. She begins to hope that she has been given yet another chance at life.

    And yet... she has a dark past and she holds many secrets that she is terrified will be revealed. Not all secrets can stay hidden and the past is not so easily forgotten.

    This story will be told mostly from the Inquisitor's point of view, but will also include the POV of some of her companions (Solas, Varric, Cullen, Hawke etc.,). Much of Banreas' story and her past experiences will be revealed and explained through her dreams, and conscious encounters in the Fade.

    Canon Divergent: This series will diverge quite a bit (especially when it comes to the typical Lavellan history) and from the game and will be graphic and violent at some points.

    Summary

    A Modern Girl in Thedas where said modern girl knows nothing of Thedas and isn't the Inquisitor. She just likes to make food and sing too loud.

    Apparently that's going to save the world, or at least everyone in it.
