    Summary

    As the sole survivor of the Conclave, the Hunter from Clan Lavellan is swiftly forced into the role of savior for a world he would rather let burn.

    Well, maybe not the whole world. He did care a little for a certain ex-templar, and perhaps he was fond of this one Tevinter mage. Besides, he could hardly stand aside and let another unworthy god take what was his. With Inquisitor Lavellan’s proclivity for the forbidden, even a broken world has an insidious way of creeping under the skin.

    And secrets always have a way of coming out.

    Summary

    He thought her dead for a millennium. Before he ever tore down the veil and destroyed their world even further. All because of their own actions. They had killed Mythal. They had killed her. He would not forgive them. Could not. They had taken everything from him. So how was she standing there smiling at the young inquisitor? Offering her hand to help the Dalish elf back to her feet after she’d helped seal the rift.
    -x-x-x-
    She had awakened to a world detached from itself. Fear of magic, of spirits and the fade. It had been so long since she’d been awake, she didn’t know what to do. Everything she knew was gone. Everyone she knew was gone. She felt hopeless. But she knew her purpose. So, she followed it. And somehow, her purpose always leads her back to him.

    Weekly updates. :)

    Summary

    “Is this real?” he asked softly.

    “Yes.” She forced a smile. “As real as a dream can be.”

    “Then I’ll find you.”

    Summary

    Gone, Hawke was gone. To ensure the survival of both the Warden Alistair and Inquisitor Trevelyan, Garrett Hawke had fought back the Nightmare to buy time, sealing his fate in being left behind in the Fade. Now a widower, Anders adjusts to living on without his lover, slowly overcoming the hurdles of grief surrounded by familliar faces at the Vigil's Keep. In his dreams he remains continuously haunted by a spirit taking on the form of Hawke, seemingly to feed off his grief and despair. That's what the spirit is, surely? Or so he may think.

    Summary

    She has witnessed empires of Thedas rise and fall, watched heroes come and go with the tides of war and how they've shaped the world in their wake, from ripples to great waves. From Fen'Harel and his Rebellion to Inquisitor Lavellan, each one has tried to save the world in their own way. Thedas has never quite known peace. Sure enough, not long after the defeat of Corypheus, the world is plunged once more into peril. Now, she knows they need someone who has been on both sides and lived in both worlds since the fall of Elvhenan.

    She can't say she's the right person for the task, but they're running out of time.

    [reality: DA4 protagonist is an agent of Fen'Harel and everything is spaghetti.]

    Summary

    Hera Drakul has lived her entire, long life decadently, bravely, and mostly luckily- but always on her own terms. No stranger to walking the planes of existence, she’s traveled to many different worlds, fighting alongside her twin brother and their ever-changing circle of comrades for coin, pleasure, and sometimes even what’s right. That all changed when she and Zeus discovered their parentage, leaving them with more power and responsibility than they’ve ever wanted.

    After the novelty wears off, she finds her new life beautiful, predictable, and utterly boring.

    So when a mysterious mirror appears in the forest and whispers of adventure, she can't help but get closer. The temptation and curiosity that fueled so many escapades in her past lead her to Ferelden, where she has to determine friend from foe, keep a devastating secret, and discover who she is without her twin at her side.

    Last, but absolutely not least, an enormous thank you to my beta, PadawanHilary, for picking up this project at the eleventh hour and working with me. If you haven't checked out her fic Monster, I highly recommend it.

    Summary

    For Merrill, the grief carves a familiar hole in her gut; she didn’t know the other alienage “Keepers” very well, having only coordinated with them for the Conclave, trying to petition for the same exemptions from Templar interference that Dalish clans are allowed. She grieves for the lost potential, for the communities losing their guides, for the families losing each other.
    She grieves, and she wants nothing more than for Isabela to be here, carding ringed fingers through her hair and telling her what she has to say to go home to her.

     

    or;
    Merrill has always walked the line between respected and feared, loved and lonely. To be a heretical chosen one is almost fitting.

    Summary

    He frowns. “You’re acting like free will doesn’t exist. Haven’t I proven that it does? I changed my path, because of a choice I made. You could have done the same.”

    Wisdom’s voice resonates with undercurrents he can no longer decipher. “Solas,” it intones, makes his name sound like an omen, a divination, a fundamental truth. “We were never the same. All your actions did was illuminate the difference.”

    A philosophical debate, through the ages.

    Summary

    A mage awakens after the opening of the Breech, in pain and confused. She must regain her memories and come to terms with the fact that she is no longer able to hide her mage talents through the guise of a stealthy rogue from the world, and that those talents might just be what the world needs to be mended back together.

    Summary

    "A spirit's natural state is peaceful semi-existence. It is rare to be able to reflect reality. Something similar may reform one day, but it might have a different personality. It would likely not remember me. It would not be the friend I knew." Solas tells the Inquisitor this upon his return to Skyhold, but how does he know? Perhaps it's because he went searching through the Fade for his friend anyway, and discovered that while a fragment of the Wisdom that once was still lingered, it was younger and wore a different face... one that belongs to someone else he knows.

    Summary

    “If you are lying to me,” Merrill said calmly, dreamily, considering, “then I’ll have to kill you. I can’t let anyone else come to harm, you see.” She stroked the soft fur underneath her hand, thoughts forming a plan even as she spoke. “I’ll follow your trail, find you, and destroy you.”

    The spirit raised its head to look at her, eyes golden and unblinking, deep and depthless. “Fair enough.”

    -

    Merrill keeps dreaming of a path. One day, she follows it.
