    Summary

    Rayvin Hawke lived by a certain rule. Go big or go home and always leave a lasting impression. He never cared how many feathers he ruffled, even if the latest ones belonged to the fabled Herald of Andraste.

    When Inquisitor Trevelyan opens a rift at Adamant, it sends them straight to the Fade, trapping them. It forces each them to face their fears and fight their demons. When the Nightmare stands in the way between them and escape, Rayvin Hawke is left behind by the Inquisitor. When the Nightmare is banished, he finds himself standing before an active eluvian. It's his only way out. Walking through it sends him to a world that is as dangerous as it is beautiful.

    Summary

    In which Dorian is a special forces operative, Bull is his partner, and Cullen is the guy they're sent to rescue. Hijinks ensue.

    Written because I wanted a story where Dorian rescues Cullen from physical danger. Because I like rescue-fic, and mainly what I've seen is the other way around (Cullen rescuing Dorian).

    In the name of not leading people on...The E rating is for eventually (cf "slow burn" tag above): I'd say this is T rated until chapter 15, and it doesn't need the E rating until chapter 25. Just so's you know!

    ETA: ART!!! Because there are few things I like better than badass Dorian.

    Summary

    Cast out from her people for her crimes, the Forsworn Nemain somehow ends up in Helgen and meets the sworn enemy of her people, the man Madanach has sent her on a mission to kill: Ulfric Stormcloak.

    Forsworn sympathizer, hater of Nords and remorseless killer, Nemain must decide what prejudices she will cling to, as she begrudgingly begins to respect the Bear of Markarth.

    Can a heart once broken begin beating anew? Surely never for the man who slaughtered every man, woman and child of the Reach who stood against him.

    Bitter and betrayed, this is the tale of Nemain. Forsworn and Forsaken.

    Summary

    Once, back in Kirkwall, Cullen had an arrangement with a member of the city guard that satisfied his needs. But time changed all things, and he despaired of ever finding a similar arrangement again - that was, until he met The Iron Bull. Problem being that Bull seemed to care far more about sorting out the nitty-gritty of such an arrangement than Cullen ever has.

    Summary

    The pointed undercurrent of Stormcloak’s words resolves as you read the letter a third time. Having heard that your current circumstances are less than favourable… I can guarantee both your welcome and your safety here.

    Having heard that you were tortured for three months in the depths of the Thalmor Embassy, he wishes to graciously extend the shelter of his castle and his faction. Perhaps he hopes that you’ve been embittered enough to abandon your own neutrality and take up arms with his cause, Dunmer or no. Perhaps even the great champion of Nord independence can make an exception for a Dunmer who is also Dragonborn, when the tactical and logistical realities of war begin to weigh heavily.

    (A slowburn with bitter arguing, reluctant kinship, and romance in equal measures as the Dragonborn recovers from trauma, Ulfric is confronted with his major failings, and the plot lines of the game unravel everywhere.)
