    Summary

    Alistair, bastard son of the late King Maric, was a Grey Warden and the lover of fellow Warden, Rowan Cousland. After a rather spectacular and very public argument in front of the banns and nobles gathered for a Landsmeet, their relationship was not only ended, Alistair was exiled from Ferelden. He ended up in the Free Marches, a sellsword and a wandering drunk, until Bann Teagan Guerrin located him and brought him back to Ferelden under strict conditions. As Alistair sobers up he realises that the thing he wants most, despite his mixed feelings and lingering resentment, is to make up for what he did, and maybe win the forgiveness of the woman he still loves, who is now Commander of the Grey and Hero of Ferelden.

    This is a companion piece to my much longer fic, Twisty Paths of Fate. Reading that is not necessary to get this, though this starts around Chapter 85 of that one if you're interested.

    This is also a different style of storytelling for me, being first person and not always chronological, and the narrator may or may not be entirely reliable... ;-)

    Summary

    Just a few tidbits, straight out of Anya Cousland's odd lifetime.
    Including her assassin asking her brother for her hand in marriage, an odd idea, and story time over cheese before more adventures take place.
    Sort of a bunch of random one shots that just fit together perfectly, sort of randomly placed memories with very little chance of them taking place in whatever order I post them.
    As stated in the tags, not 100% canon compliant.

    Summary

    Nathaniel lounged on the bench where Elissa usually sat. A wave of irritation flared within her at finding him in the spot she came to feel as hers. It receded just as quickly. Vigil's Keep was his home, after all, and had been long before King Alistair gifted it to the Grey Wardens. The Vigil, and all of the Arling, had belonged to the the Howe family for generations.

    She decided to retreat to the main hall. Despite his numerous apologies, his angry words, when she found him in a cell, cut like a knife against a half-healed wound. The hatred in his expression, matched Alistair's when she spared Loghain. She'd thought Vigil's Keep would be a haven, an escape from the cold disdain she now received from the king. Instead, she lived with her biggest regret.

    Summary

    Rhaydyn Cousland was the new Grey Warden Commander in Ferelden, after helping to defeat the Archdemon in Denerim. Alistair and Leliana had gone off together, lusty and in love. Morrigan had disappeared after her dark ritual. Zevran had gone back into hiding from the Crows. The Queen of Ferelden gifted Rhaydyn with the Arling that had belonged to the man who had murdered her family. Her brother had taken up the mantle of Teryn Cousland, and Rhaydyn was left alone to pick up the pieces of her life.
    Nathaniel Howe is the eldest son of Rendon Howe, the man who had the Couslands murdered in their own home. When he first got news of his father's death, he had plotted a special kind of revenge for the faceless Hero of Ferelden.
    Until he heard about who she was. And what his father had supposedly done.
    When she conscripted him into the Grey Wardens... Maybe it wasn't a death sentence after all. Maybe it was a ticket to a new life. Love. Maybe even forever.
