    Summary

    Varric will write that it was love at first sight, fate’s thunderbolt striking down Inquisitor and Champion in tandem, but the truth is, the first time Mahanon Lavellan sees Marian Hawke she only strikes him as bony, with a face like an assassin’s favorite dagger and a pitch black crop of hair just starting to streak with gray. He thinks she looks like a villain.

    A not unpromising beginning. All tales begin somewhere. This one finds itself starting between disasters.

    Summary

    Theo Trevelyan was raised without a voice, without a choice, and without a future. In one explosive moment he gains all three.

    Dorian Pavus was raised with wealth, power, and privilege. He gives it all up to be true to himself.

    The Inquisition may bring them together, but there's far more that keeps them together through politics, journeys, and battles with new magic against old gods.

    Summary

    Raleigh Samson thought his life was over when Evelyn Trevelyan and her Inquisition took him captive. But a year after Corypheus's defeat, they're sleeping together. It's just body parts, lust, a game of power. It's nothing romantic. There are no feelings. Until it is and there are.

    --
    This redemption story is more romance than smut, but since it's told from Samson's perspective leaving out the smut would have felt disingenuous. I've marked off the smut pieces so they're easy for more sensitive readers to skip.

    Summary

    Former Inquisitor Kai Trevelyan never intended to have a complicated life, but fate apparently had other ideas. Carrying on a long-distance relationship with a Tevinter magister is tricky enough. Now an old friend is asking him to hunt down a cold-blooded murderer, and if that wasn't enough, someone in his own city seems to want him dead…or worse.

    Summary

    Newly revised and expanded

    "I always found it amusing that everyone in the Inquisition just assumed I was still a good little Circle mage; only Dorian ever thought to ask me about it." - Kai Trevelyan, The Wrong Sort of Whatever

    Future Inquisitor Kai Trevelyan didn't go straight from the sheltered world of the Ostwick Circle to somehow possessing the skills to step easily into the role of Inquisitor. Two years before the Conclave, he walked away from the Circle, hoping to make a life for himself. This is the story of what happened.

    Summary

    Kai Trevelyan had gone from privileged child to reluctant resident of the Ostwick Circle to an uncertain future before fate spun his life into mad new directions that brought him not only power and complications, but Dorian Pavus, the Tevinter mage who soon became partner and lover.

    They'll survive the challenges of the Inquisition, but more lies ahead in the contours of shadows...

    Summary

    The blight is over, but the monstrous darkspawn haven't vanished. Instead, new darkspawn have been seen in the areas surrounding Amaranthine. Melina Amell, the King's mage advisor, is sent to help the Orlesian elf the Grey Wardens have sent to investigate. Danette Andras, a new but respected Grey Warden, would rather be anywhere other than backwater Ferelden. When the Wardens at Vigil's Keep are all slaughtered, these two women will have to work together alongside two apostates, an assassin who wants them dead, two strange dalish elves, and a morbid dwarf in order to defeat their foes, darkspawn or otherwise.

    AU/canon divergent. Tells the tale of Dragon Age: Awakening but with new / different plot elements and relationships. Tags subject to change as I write.

    Summary

    Six months after the Blight, Zevran seeks to change the order of House Arainai. His need for revenge over the loss of Rinna and Taliesen has only grown stronger as time passes, but he can't take on the entire House on his own. So he turns to his former lover, The Dark Wolf, for help.

    But Maroth's pain and resentment might just be as strong as Zevran's wish for revenge.

    Summary

    When you're the daughter of Philliam, A Bard!, there are only so many jobs that make sense. Rather than pursue her father's path in questionable yet well-selling anthologies, Evelyn decided a future as an Orlesian Bard would be better suited to her. Why bother with cutting wit when cutting blades were so close at hand, right? What she lacks in turn of written word, she makes up for with juggling, knife-throwing and bawdy jokes about the Dowager and the tiny harpsicord player. But she doesn't just seek to entertain and spy for coin. Evelyn is a woman seeking answers, and a man - because who isn't - and she would wager the Inquisition is the fastest path to both, and wager high.

    Dedicated to TheWinterWren, without whom, I would have given up on this fic and character entirely.

    Summary

    The Inquisition holds a grand ball at Skyhold to celebrate the victory over Corypheus at the Temple of Sacred Ashes and, after an evening featuring plenty of shenanigans from party members and heavy flirting between Lady Trevelyan and Cullen, the couple steals away to the Chantry chapel to enjoy themselves in their own -particular- style. Chapter Four will change rating to a hard M.

    Summary

    Hojo stepped back, a wide, thoughtless stride.

    He was stunned, taken by his own actions. Physical confrontation was beneath him. He had only ever struck one other; the boy's father.

    Perhaps that is why he hit him, because the boy's question was as valid as it was hurtful, as ugly as it was fair. Perhaps it was because he had looked like his father when he asked it, so sullen and hopeless and weak.

    Remorse flood him as the boy held his small hands to his small cheek, wore a small look of wounded betrayal. Hojo almost knelt, took him in his arms, embraced him in apology for all the things he could not know. Instead, he shoved a gnarled finger between the boy's unnaturally glowing green eyes.

    "What are you, a child?!"

    The boy blinked. He could have killed Hojo if he wanted to, they both knew. Crushed his throat, squeezed the life from him with his small fingers. But a child he was, a little boy. As loyal and eager to please as his father had been. "No, Professor."

    Hojo straightened. "You are nothing of the sort. You are no stupid, silly child. You have no business asking stupid, silly questions. You are Sephiroth. And you will never ask me that again."

    Summary

    Fenris has recently sealed his freedom by killing his former master, the Magister Danarius. His freedom, however, is disturbed by recollections of the unfortunate reunion. What little revealed about his life has only led to confusion, and he has nearly convinced himself that who he was doesn't matter.

    Now, events set in motion by the death of Danarius have swept into Kirkwall, led by a woman who seems to know more about Fenris' forgotten past. He and Varric, with help from their companions, must follow the path set before them, delving into who Fenris was before Danarius, and who he may have known.

    This is a completed work. It contains big, huge, nasty Dragon Age 2 spoilers. With teeth. And guns.

    I do not own any licensing for Dragon Age 2 or its characters, all rights belong to Bioware and EA, blah blah legalities blah blah blah.

    UPDATE - Broken into chapters, too many words. I had intended for this to be a short story...um...oops.

    Summary

    Blood, tears, failure, hope, learning how to balance an equation and teaching the young that picking ones nose and putting it in the hair of a classmate was not a good idea - such is the daily life of a teacher. And that was just in the classroom. Throw in Faculty Room politics, pantry gossips and trying to subsist on coffee, Cullen's teaching career was pretty much routine, until the threat of a new and dangerous trend sweeps the school.

    Summary

    To the surprise of all, the Herald is an Avvar woman barely of age who serves a fertility goddess. As part of her practices, she is meant to bare a child with Lowland blood for her tribe. She immediately sets upon this task, earning her scorn from the more prudish members of the Inquisition and the adoration of those she heals through their interludes. This grows only more complicated as months go by without becoming pregnant and she finds herself falling in love.

    Summary

    If there are lessons to be learnt about dealing with the Inquisitor, it is these:

    Never refer to her as a dwarf, or anything other than a grown woman. Call her a child at your own risk.
    Never let her smile fool you.
    Never presume she is as stupid as she acts, and she is very good at acting stupid.

    The Inquisitor, for all that she is diminutive and apparently air-headed, leads the very organization spearheading the defence of Thedas from unspeakable evils. Behind her are the might of her army, the weight of her diplomatic corp and blades in the shadows. So should you meet her, bring pie. Or a big sword. Either will suffice.
