    Summary

    Everyone knew the story. Neria Surana slew the archdemon Urthemiel atop Fort Drakon. Alistair, the new King of Ferelden, along with the rest of the nation, declared her the Hero of Ferelden. She thought the world would stay fixed after she pieced it back together.

    She was a fool to think so. She couldn't even save her relationship with Leliana in the years that followed Amaranthine's near destruction.

    Ten years later, Inquisitor Eric Percival Trevelyan has quite the problem on his hands - a problem that looks exactly like an ancient darkspawn magister.

    When Leliana, the Inquisition's Spymaster, comes looking for help, Neria is obligated to answer.

    Despite not having spoken face-to-face for several years, there is a lingering tension between Neria and Leliana, seeing as they never properly broke off their relationship.

    So, when the Hero of Ferelden, Warden-Commander Surana, comes knocking on the Inquisition's door, there's a complication.

    A complication that's named Nathaniel Howe.

    ---

    Or, a somewhat non-linear look at the missing 10 years since the Fifth Blight.

    Summary

    Solona Amell has a deathwish. It's seven months after the death of the Archdemon and the Hero of Ferelden longs to join her beloved Alistair at the Maker’s side. The fact that the darkspawn continue to swarm the land surrounding the Warden's new base means plenty of opportunity to make that a reality. While an old crush from the circle provides a powerful temptation, it's the broody archer who just might change give her a real reason to go on.

     

    A note: After I was well into this fic it was brought to my attention that another fic already exists that is based on the exact same premise and sharing many of the same ideas. Please know that this similarity was an honest coincidence and be sure to give some love to the author who did it first: Cousland is Alive, by Turbo Nerd.

    Summary

    Formerly of the circle, Miriam Amell has gone through hell in her short life: Circle nor the templars, were kind on her, and she made sacrifices to protect the one person she cared about. Constant bitterness remained through it all, despite her resisting it.

    Once she joined the Grey wardens, Miriam dedicated herself for a single purpose: a goal greater than herself (which, to her delight, existed outside the chantry). Despite her cranky nature, Miriam made sure the blight was defeated, and future ensured. A new symbol for dedication was born.

    Now, the hero of Fereldan and leader of Grey wardens of Fereldan, she has taken upon herself the burden of command. Although she learned much about loyalty during the Fifth Blight, she still has a long way to go. Victory didn't guarantee absolute trust.

    A man, who has spent a time in her cells, may be the key, for her to learn true comradery... and something else.

    Summary

    Rescued after six months spent as a prisoner in the silverite mine by the very man who had put him there, Varel is given an unenviable duty: keeping the arling of Amaranthine together after the death of Arl Howe.

    Unsavory elements have crept in to fill the void left by the absence of a liege lord, and there are dark rumors and reports of darkspawn sightings in the remote areas of Amaranthine. With all of the burden and little of the authority he needs to govern the arling, he must do what he can if there is to be anything left for the Grey Wardens.

    Summary

    Heartbroken after being dumped by the man she made King, Lily Amell proceeds to Vigil's Keep to oversee the transfer of the arling to the Grey Wardens. How far will Anora go to take back what she believes is hers? Can Alistair finally grab hold of his own destiny? Will Anders ever trust anyone enough to fall in love? Can Lily truly move on, or will she forever be tied to the politics of Ferelden? Perhaps, we are as haunted by our good deeds as the bad ones; and, telling one from the other, is all a matter of perspective.

    Summary

    alternative title: Saving Private Anders

    Despite what he thinks, the Wardens haven't forgotten about Anders. Particularly one dark-haired rogue.

    The Warden-Commander had never given up on him. Nathaniel Howe had never given up on him. With the help of Carver Hawke, they're determined to get their comrade back.

    Probably the only fic in this fandom, or any, to have citations in the footnotes.

    Summary

    The elf’s hair was loose, unplanned strands falling around his face, the shimmering white of it was even brighter in the contrast of his dark ash skin. There was dirt on the bridge of his nose and above his brow and a few cuts and scrapes littered every part of his delicate face. A bruise was starting to form on the left side of his jaw and the skin had split on the right of his bottom lip. He was covered head to toe in blood - both his and his foes - and behind the coppery scent was the sweat that brought a small sheen to his complexion. His bright large eyes fluttered with what looked like surprise and Nathaniel had never really noticed how long his lashes were until now.

    And then he smiled.

    It was small, tired, but so very warm and sweet. His eyes had softened around the edges and looked even more dazzling with amusement and affection there to fill them “You’re wounds come first, Nathaniel.”

    And some part of him was absolutely embarrassed that he wanted to hear his name on those lips again.
