    Summary

    Alistair was given to the Chantry as a child - and knew everything the Chantry taught about mages. Their hubris brought darkspawn into the world when they sought to usurp Heaven, but instead, they destroyed it. They were cast out, twisted and cursed by their own corruption, and returned as monsters. They were something to be feared. They were something to be hated.

    They weren't something to be loved, but Alistair loved him anyway.

    Summary

    Shaerra Lavellan is not your typical elf. Coming into her magic later in life after a traumatic event led her to be shunned by her clan. Leaving them had been difficult, but their reasoning for her exile left her bitter and angry. Shae lived alone for many years, traveling from the plains to the forests, harnessing her magic, and doing her best to avoid contact with humans--and other elves. That was until she’d ended up at the Conclave after being driven to the village by rogue Templars with a bone to pick with her. Surviving the blast, becoming the Herald of Andraste, and eventually, the Inquisitor all while trying to keep an ancient Darkspawn Magister from tearing open the very fabric of their world wasn’t where she saw her life going. Becoming enchanted by an easily flustered human man, former Templar, and Commander of the Inquisition, though? Never in a million years.

    Summary

    They fall in love slowly during the war at the height of the Inquisition. During their romantic and eventually sexual relationship, the former Circle mage and former templar discover they love one another as more than the Commander and Inquisitor, more than the rose that survived and endured the winter, and more than a forgotten goddess of old. Then war, like everything, ends. They dream of dawn after stars.
    ***
    The love story between Inquisitor Lydia Trevelyan and her Commander. As the Inquisition begins and unravels, so do their own personal struggles, issues, torrid pasts, and feelings for one another. Sprinklings of other characters here and there. Slightly diverges from canon. Rated E for later chapters.

    Summary

    As the Inquisition grows, a new historian is selected to help study and catalogue all of the cultural items and forgotten histories they encounter. Elowyn Tremayne (Wyn to her friends) accepts that position much to the annoyance of Commander Cullen. Discovering she has no filter and a temper, the former Templar is left wondering if the woman is worth all the grief he endures when dealing with her or is there more to the new historian than meets the eye.
    Wyn accepted the job as the Inquisition's historian without hesitation. Seeing it as an opportunity to establish herself in the field and step out of the shadow of Brother Genitivi, everything seems to be going great until the Inquisition's Commander dismisses her skills. That combined with her past leave Tremayne less than enthusiastic to work with the Commander. But is he simply a soldier or is there an actual human being under all the armor?

    "I'm so in love with you
    And I hope you know
    Darling, your love is more than worth its weight in gold
    We've come so far, my dear
    Look how we've grown
    And I wanna stay with you
    Until we're grey and old
    Just say you won't let go"

    Summary

    Hawke and Stroud were both saved from the fade, and a very young and very determined Inquisitor recruits Hawke to the Inquisition. After Kirkwall, Hawke hadn't particularly wanted to get involved in anything ever again, but he feels some responsibility for the end of the world and joins up. But there is just one problem - Knight Captain Cullen.

    He remembers every cutting word, every tranquil that can be laid at Cullen's feet. How can the Inquisition trust the man, it is madness and he will protect them from Cullen, as he protected his friends in Kirkwall.

    But Hawke slowly learns that not all in Kirkwall was what he thought and that while Cullen is not a good man, he isn't wholly the villain Hawke thought him. As time passes, he realizes in fact how much he owes to Cullen, and maybe two broken men, can eventually be made near enough whole again.

    Summary

    It's been 17 years since Cullen Rutherford left home to join the Templar Order. Keeping himself sane has been almost more work than he could manage, but he has survived, and emerged mostly intact. He is a different man now, and his friendships with mages - especially with Dorian Pavus - play a vital role in proving he can be a better man.

    The life Cullen left behind comes calling with a surprise visit from his brother. Branson's family has been turned upside down and he is at a loss; if he doesn't take the chance to renew their relationship, he fears they may lose the opportunity forever in the face of the ongoing Breach War. Dorian sees a young man struggling to define himself in a post-Blight world, and cannot fail to find a reflection of himself, causing the two to form an unlikely friendship.

    Neither brother was prepared for the impact of getting to know a sibling they'd spent most of their lives apart from, and neither could have anticipated Dorian's role in reforming that bond - nor could any of them have guessed the role of a third person in defining their path forward.

    Catalyst (n): a person or thing that sparks a chemical reaction.

    Summary

    Tairinn Agni Trevelyan is just a Templar who spends her life on the road with a close-knit team led by Knight-Captain Evelyn. Just as she makes another attempt to overcome lyrium addiction, her team is sent to guard the Conclave, and everything goes straight to hell from there. Or, maybe it has never been alright.

    This is the story about lies and truths, illnesses and cures, enemies turning friends and friends having hidden agendas. This is the story about past hunting people to make them face consequences of their actions. And maybe, just maybe, somewhere along the way this is the story about love.

    Summary

    He purposefully doesn’t think about the uneasy friendship that’s been developing between them. Afternoons of chess, arguing over the war table, meals taken together when the Commander remembers that he’s human and needs to eat. In truth, Dorian only calls it uneasy because calling it a friendship without the qualifier feels like… like tempting fate. Dorian doesn’t have friends. Even now, outside of Tevinter and its politics, he has allies. Close allies, to be sure, but friendship brings feelings, and all feelings do is bring disappointment. That’s a lesson Dorian has learned time and time again. Besides, it would be ridiculous to imagine that a former templar could ever truly be friends with a mage.


    Cullen doesn't want to be dependent on lyrium.

    Dorian has some interesting methods to help him deal with withdrawal.

    Summary

    Finley doesn’t like people and people don’t like her. So when she gets dragged into the Inquisition along with her best friend, who just so happens to be the Herald of Andraste, she doesn’t exactly fit in. Add to that Evelyn’s insistence that she joins the military and works amiably with the army’s Commander and no one is happy. Especially since he won’t stop breathing down her neck. But what is she to do when said Commander starts growing on her.

    Or the story of how a dorky man with a cool streak and a cool woman with a dorky streak somehow both get the hint... hopefully. What is flirting anyway?

    Summary

    Mina Lavellan has suffered from severe depression since she was a child. One day, the troubled shapeshifter mage is sent physically into the Fade, only to emerge with a glowing green mark on her hand and accused of genocidal murder. Can Mina overcome the odds and be the hero and leader everyone needs her to be, or will the stress kill her/make her kill herself?

    Meanwhile, love is in the air in the Inquisition. Follow several couples, including Mina and Cullen, as their romances bloom into something much more beautiful. With four hopeless romantics in the room (Mina, Leliana, Josephine, and Cassandra), teasing and red faces ensue. When more hopeless romantics enter the room (Dorian, Victoria Hawke, Isabela, and even the HoF, Raisa Amell-Theirin, among others), even more teasing and red faces ensue.
