  1. Summary

    Heroes are everywhere. But if nobody sees them being heroic, is a person still a hero? This series is dedicated to minor characters who do their thing when nobody's looking. All stories are based in the Dragon Age universe, timed before the start of the Fifth Blight, often told from a Ferelden-centric perspective and shuffled into vaguely chronological order.

    Blessed are they who stand before
    The corrupt and the wicked and do not falter.
    - from Benedictions 4:10

    A beautiful, flowing narrative. DA:I from Cullen's perspective, told over FIVE chapters.

    Summary

    He’s an odd man, Celia thinks. Unexpected, in every meaning of that word.

    Summary

    The reach and reputation of the Inquisition has only grown in the year since the breach was sealed and Corypheus defeated, and its servants' work has only increased. Cole, left behind and nearly friendless, finds kind crumbs of comfort in the kitchens as he befriends one of the Inquisition's bakers.

    On hiatus until March 2018.
