    Summary

    Caden Tabris never actively went looking for trouble, but it found her on her wedding day no less! A deadly encounter with a noble human sparked off a journey Caden never expected, tearing her from her family in the process. Caden must learn to trust again, battling her demons from her previous life, possibly even finding a new family if she can stop resisting her fellow Wardens attempts at kindness.

    (Content Warning: there is an attempted sexual assault early on as per the city elf origin details, and it leads to some flashbacks throughout the story)

    Disclaimers: BioWare owns everything, including a portion of my soul; I'm just grateful to play and write in their world. Story title comes from Brandi Carliles amazing song Hard Way Home.
    (This is also posted on FF.net as is the previous draft of this work under the title This Is War.)

    Summary

    As Andrastians give their loved ones to the fire, the Dalish give theirs to the earth.

    Serket Mahariel knows that she's burying more than just Tamlen's body, but she never did learn how to experience grief in front of others. So she decides that she won't, and holds a funeral for two.

    Summary

    Trust is a delicate flower that needs to get nurtured and time to grow. Even more so love. A tale of two disparate Wardens forced together, of finding a way to overcome the distrust, and their own painful past in the time of the Blight.

    Very in-depth, character-focused exploration of the Dalish origin/warden, of all DA:O companions, and their relationship dynamics during the Fifth Blight. Follows and expands on canon events; AU in some ways. Multiple POV's and pairings. Slow burn af.

    This is a COMPLETELY new rewritten and revised version of my story, originally posted on Fanfiction.net. Please see the individual chapter notes for more information about what had been changed. Tags, Chapter Amount (rough estimate) and Rating are subject to change and will get updated with its further progress.

    Summary

    Zevran came to Ferelden to die, yet finds himself leaving for Antiva with the woman who let him live.

    But House Arainai knows of his sins, and they aim to make him pay.

     

    (This work aims to narrate the post-Origins life of Zevran and the Warden in the most canon way possible, incorporating all that is known about their post-Origins life in the lore, which spans right up to the events of Inquisition. This will include: Zevran tying up lose ends with the Crows in Antiva, relevant DLC events, Zevran in the Free Marches (DA2) and canon-compliant crossovers with other canon character events).

    Summary

    Tales will always be told about the Blight in Ferelden. The shortest in history, it was the one that had the best chance at ending the world. If not for a handful of Grey Wardens, this story would not be told at all.
    The Hero of Ferelden, the Warden who struck the killing blow against the Archdemon and lived... Who were they really?

    Summary

    The page flips, the forest shines bright, and the witch of the wilds sees in her mind a little Dalish camp, and in it an elven girl of great potential kicks within the womb that carries her.

    Sometimes she is a warrior, sometimes a rogue, good with sword or knives or bow, and sometimes...in the most unlikely and improbable of all future’s, she is a mage.

    It is that one, that single whispered future, that the witch of the wilds listens to with the most avid of ears. A story full of loss and sacrifice...but also hope, and knowledge, and the creation of something the elves have not had in far too long—a home.

    A breath, a blink, a cry far off in the distance. In a thousand other stories a babe is born with no connection to the Beyond...but in this one, a mage, despite all the odds, and the little part of Mythal that still lives, that part of her that still looks upon the elves as her people...smiles.

    --

    What if the Dalish Warden was born a mage? An exploration of what a Dalish Mage Origin could have looked like with the new elvish lore that we know from Inquisition, and how it could have changed everything for her people, and Thedas.

    Summary

    This is a short based off of a combined timeline of a Cousland (noble) AND Mahariel (dalish elf) Warden (two timelines in one, fight me). In DAI, letters of a still-alive Zevran were sent to the Herald of Andraste, and it is through this that I debated if Zevran really did die by Cousland's hands. Whether or not it was a mistake with the Keep is irrelevant.

    The answer I’m going with is no. She never looted his body so there was no real way to tell that he was still alive or not, so I’m running with it and no one can stop me.

    With this knowledge in mind, enjoy the slapping Zevran so deserves.

    Summary

    Ellana Lavellan has an unearned spot at Haine, the most exclusive school in Thedas.

    She's rebellious, rude, and already not a fan of her surroundings- and then she meets Him.

    Stuck-up, snobby, self-important, Fen'Harel is everything she hates, and he seems to hate her, too. But why do they keep ending up together?

    Trouble turns to lust, and lust gets way too complicated, until they have to face the wounds life has gouged in both of them. Do they belong together? Worse than that- do they belong apart?

    What is love in the face of money?

    Summary

    She would be looked down upon in another life for making the decisions she had in her life. She would have been called a coward and yet it was precisely her running that took her where she wanted to be, a place called home.

    or

    Nobody likes being taken advantage of, the Hero of Ferelden is no different. Her adventures have changed so much in the little time that has passed since she slew Uruthmiel. That doesn't mean her story is over... in fact, many would say that 9.30 was just the beginning for the Hero of Ferelden and she was far from done directly affecting the World of Thedas.

    Summary

    'Step by step, walk the thousand-mile road'. A de-gamified retelling of Dragon Age: Origins, following Eris Mahariel from the depths of grief to the leadership of the Grey Wardens. Multiple POVs & liberally canon divergent when needed. Eventual Zevmance. Get in losers, we're killing darkspawn.

    Summary

    A dwarf denied the throne, a noble bent on vengeance, a tainted Dalish huntress, a mute carta enforcer, a one-eyed elven criminal, and an arson-prone mage from a different reality all walk into a bar. The bar is Thedas and Blight is on tap and it’s happy hour.

    It's the story you know but bent in unexpected ways. The script is broken, ignored, or occasionally set on fire as the Wardens forge a new path to the future of Thedas.
