    Summary

    The templars locked Chantal Amell in a tower when she was six years old. She wasn't even eighteen when she was offered a choice between freedom and punishment.

    Unfortunately, freedom came with the blight. Her new friend Alistair promised to help her learn everything she needed to know about life outside the tower. It helped she was very good at lesson number one:

    Don't get killed by darkspawn.

    This is all of the Warden's life lessons collected in short drabbles. Smut possible (probable, really, it is Zevran) and cuteness can be expected.

    Summary

    Aleska Lavellan, Herald of Andraste, faces an unusual situation; a man who was supposed to be at the Conclave but wasn't, and who some think may have answers to what happened at the Temple of Sacred Ashes.
    Anselm Trevelyan, spoilt and scandal-loving offshoot of Ostwick's royal house, is meanwhile discovering that no good deed goes unpunished. Still, at least one of his captors is pretty...

    Summary

    "Vehendis, you're right. The additional head wound was completely unnecessary. Your sense of humor was already atrocious."

    Fenris left Kirkwall because he can't picture living in a world without Reyna Hawke. Unfortunately, staying out of trouble is something Hawke is incapable of doing. If it wasn't bad enough being on the run, Fenris is plagued by dreams of horrible things and a suspicion that there is something else just as dangerous and terrible waiting for them.

    Staying at Hawke's side seems to have strained the only romantic relationship Varric has ever cared about. He writes letters, as he always has, but obtains no response. Brokenhearted, he works on the Tale of the Champion. Unfortunately, when people come looking for Hawke, it is his door they find. He won't draw his best friend to her doom, but before he can gracefully escape the world goes to shit. This is where the miracle starts: Maria Cadash is a Carta heiress and a damn fine Wicked Grace player with a glowing hand. When she steps out of a rift, none of their lives will ever be the same again.

    Summary

    There were several people Cullen never expected to see again and at the top of the list is Inani Scipio. Surrounded by mystery and strange warnings, he can't decide if she brings destruction with her or if she stops greater evils from happening. All he knows for sure is that he wants more than anything to taste those lips once again that he felt so very long ago.

    Inani was bred for a purpose, her magic is not only stronger than most, but she has control over things that none have ever heard of. Elegant, sophisticated and confident, she bleeds of nobility and hides many secrets as to who she really is. Knowing the cost if she fails, she must focus on her task, but a certain Templar keeps getting in her way. She knows she needs to stay away from him, knows deep inside why he wants her and it has nothing to do with her and everything to do with the curse she is forced to endure, yet, knowing doesn't stop her from desiring the man she knows she can never truly have.

    The World is burning, Politics bring out the evil of many, Demons are pouring from the sky and Ancient Powers fight an epic battle once more, yet in the center, one woman stands, but can she stand alone?

    Boy meets girl, boy wants girl, boy falls in love... oh shit.

    Or, the tale of how Zevran Arainai fell in love with two people... again. After swearing he’d never love again, he falls right back into it only months later.

    Also known as, why do I keep describing Zevran as if he’s the protagonist of a rom-com?

    Summary

    Writing prompt in 500 words or less: "But you promised!"

    The Landsmeet was an eye opening experience for Alistair.
    He knew immediately that everything was about to change.
    Most of those changes would have to come from within.

     

     

    Another prompt fill for the Sadness Appreciation society, but it's not as sad as the last couple I promise.
