    Summary

    "Feels like reckless driving when we're talking
    It's fun while it lasts, and it's faster than walking
    But no one's going to sympathize when we crash
    They'll say "you hit what you head for, you get what you ask"
    And we'll say we didn't know, we didn't even try
    One minute there was road beneath us, the next just sky"
    -Falling Is Like This, Ani DiFranco

    Summary

    Elissa Cousland considers Nathaniel Howe a childhood friend, but that trust is shattered when his father, Rendon Howe, slaughters the Couslands, forcing Elissa to flee for her life and join the Grey Wardens.
    After Elissa and her companions defeat the Blight, however, fate forces them together again as they come face-to-face in Vigil’s Keep—not as old friends, but as enemies.

    Summary

    Highever was her home and would always be her home. But, sometimes... You have to leave to grow and be your own person. Shizuka while not overly caring about leaving home would have done it without the massacre of her own family. It would always be her duty to go back in the end - That was her duty, but sometimes duty can end your own life.

    Whether it be because of duty or for someone you loved.

    Her story is far more complicated though...

    Summary

    Five years before the Fifth Blight, young King Cailan suspects a conspiracy against him on Ferelden's northern coast. He sends his most trusted agent to investigate. Red Jenny is waiting.

    This story is one of adventure and intrigue (plot-heavy) with canon-typical violence. There is an atypical love story between two atypical adults, so look for the fluff and atypical smut.

    Summary

    Ten years before the blight hit Fereldan, Elissa Cousland was just a young noble struggling with her duties among the nobility and the duty to herself. Her abilities in combat are unusual for a young woman of her status, especially when she has an older brother who is the future heir of the Teyrnir. Nathaniel fights his father's caustic temperament while his feelings for the Spitfire grow. Elissa and Nathaniel meet again at her family's annual tournament. This story will span the decade leading up to the blight.

    Edited to make it more chapter numbers friendly, because Prologues are a pain (Aug. 2019). Pre-Origins story, with multiple POVs. Rating subject to change as the story advances.

    Summary

    Niro Surana is drafted into the Wardens, saving his life. From there it seems a long road, populated with things he'd always wanted but never expected, love, family, and freedom. Also awakened in his new world? A thirst for power, a desire for blood, and the will to shake castles to dust. Above all, he must survive, and he must win this war.

    Terrin Mahariel is the last of his clan, unless you count his flat eared wards. Abandoned and distraught, he needs to find his own way in this world that it feels like he's only now seeing. After the choices he's made, is he even able to call himself Dalish any longer?

    Fen Tabris was supposed to be married. And then Vaughn came, and she and her erstwhile party fled to Clan Sabrae. Left behind after a tragedy, she's going to have to make this work. It's not like they can go home. Unused to being free to fight, she finds herself in a war she was never meant to take part in.

    Svera and Summyr Cousland were meant to watch over Highever while their father and brother were away. Instead after one bloody night, they're fugitives with the only four they could save. With the sisters set on revenge and Eamon on his deathbed, they're running out of ways to make that happen.

    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

    Images of Aurelia sneaking into the vault of Highever floated across his mind’s eye followed closely by a portrait of Zevran stalking his sister at the celebration after the battle of Denerim. The laugh that had been building in his chest suddenly bubbled over and his friends looked at him oddly.

    Raising his mug in a toast, he said with pride, “To the Black Shadow.”

    Summary

    The day Duncan left Ostagar to gather reinforcements for the King’s armies and recruits for the Grey Wardens, he had no idea the effect he would have on not just the one life he’d select for the Joining, but the impact his absence had on those he did not. A five times Duncan wasn't there, and the one time he was. What happens to the other potential Wardens if he's not there to save them?

    A relatively short exploration of all six Origin stories based on all of my characters from my various playthroughs.

    Summary

    An AU where a non-Warden Jenna Cousland finds herself in the middle of a scheme hatched by her well-meaning parents to match her up with Bann Teagan. The Couslands get unexpected results from their determined matchmaking as the attraction between their daughter and Teagan goes from a clandestine nighttime rendezvous to a hasty wedding and all that comes after.

    Starts before the Blight and (hopefully) goes through rebuilding Redcliffe after it is over.
