    Summary

    A series of loosely connected chapters (ranging in length from 1K to 3K words each) that describe the slow yet inevitable progression of the unexpected friendship between Inquisitor Sula Lavellan — a soft-hearted Second to a Dalish Keeper who would rather hug her enemies than slay them — and Gereon Alexius, the disgraced Tevinter magister who once tried to erase her from time and space. Moved by Sula's insistence on giving him a second chance, Alexius finds himself rejecting Corypheus once and for all, having adventures as a new member of the Inquisition, trying his best to help the people he once wronged, and, odd as it sounds, falling in love.

    Summary

    In this worldstate where this story takes place, the title of Herald was claimed by (former) Magister Alexius, who travelled through time back to the Conclave, accidentally got himself marked with the Anchor, and had no choice but to progress through the chain of events as any other mage Inquisitor would. His achievements to date have included managing to prolong Felix's life and reconciling with Dorian. Whom he is now very worried about, following the meeting with Halward Pavus in the Redcliffe tavern.

    Two drabbles set in my Herald!Alexius AU during Trespasser, both written for Tumblr prompts. Looking through the general series description would help with context.

    Summary

    Two one-shots dedicated to the little mishaps endured by a very, very non-canon Inquisitor (see the overall series description for context) in the Fallow Mire, mostly revolving around his crush on Cassandra.

    Summary

    A despondent villain rotting away in a dungeon, a battle-scarred Ben-Hassrath who is beginning to doubt what he has been taught, a Tevinter Altus in exile, and a disillusioned one-time member of the Thalmor who has found herself saving another world with no hope to return home — they all have their insecurities, their fears, their things to mourn. And it seems that they may find themselves bonding over the similarities in their pain, during the escape from the smouldering ruins of Haven.

    Summary

    In a bizarre alternative dimension, young Trevelyan, a Chantry orphan turned Circle mage turned saviour of the world, has been stripped of her Herald powers by the Tevinter magister Gereon Alexius, just as his master ordered him. But instead of killing Trevelyan, Alexius has merely gotten the Anchor instead of her, and has been making quite a decent Inquisitor after the dust settled. Now the Inquisition is already well-established in Skyhold, Felix has arrived with Dorian and is well on the mend thanks to input from Merrill and the Hero of Ferelden, and Alexius has mostly moved on from his villainous past. In this setting, a tiny family drama takes place: Cassandra finally discovers that Trevelyan - still there as an agent of the Inquisition - is actually none other than the child she had with Regalyan d'Marcall after their brief encounter in the days of her youth. The Chantry Sisters that were there, especially one called Benevolence, all insisted that the baby girl had died; but now, that riddle-talking spirit boy, Cole, insists that 'Benevolence has turned to lies'.

    Summary

    Occasionally, Imperial Magister Gereon Alexius is given firm reason to despair of his brilliant young apprentice’s puzzling tastes. Namely, after a poorly-timed arrival home leads to bearing accidental witness to one of Dorian’s myriad divertissements; a discussion of alchemical theory leads to brooding, confrontation, and revelation; and an after-supper apéritif leads to a confession . . . and heartbreak.

    By the time the Elder One is defeated by the Inquisition, eleven years later, Gereon Alexius is just another old man. One with a lifetime of regrets behind him, who’s finally given up his search for lost time.

    Summary

    Issala Adaar - literally, Weapon of Dust - was once a Tamassran, a teacher and mother figure to young Qunari. After defying her peers to protect a student of hers who had turned out to be a Saarebas, she had to abandon her role and try to find a new path in life, which led her from being a test subject for the mages from the Minrathous Circle to free mercenary to something they call 'Herald of Andraste'. And it seems that, with her past heartbreak over the loss of a child that might not have been her own in the literal sense but was still very dear to her, she has a few things in common with an enemy of hers. Written in epistolary form, as notes, journals, and letters.

    Summary

    In this essay, I focus on the psychological profile on Dorian Pavus from Dragon Age: Inquisition role-playing game. I wish to convey some peculiar traits of Dorian's personality which make him one of those fictional characters who evoke strong reactions because of their inner depth and credibility. This essay is based on an analysis of fictional material provided in Dragon Age: Inquisition and "The World of Thedas" compendium.

    Whenever approaching fictonal characters, I follow a principle that they must have profound psychodynamic depth if we are supposed to sympathise or identify with them, broadly speaking: if they are supposed to move us at all. Moreover, if we treat them seriously, we may discover that their stories carry a soul. (see Notes for more)

     

    UPDATE (11.02.): Aaaand I'm reviving it because I've got some ideas about the "dark future".
