    Summary

    Twenty years in the Circle taught Owain Trevelyan to survive, to bury his hopes and dreams and take nothing--and no one--at face value. When the mage rebellion lands him in the Inquisition, he’s called upon to confront his past and help shape the future. The skeptic is asked to hope, as Thedas hangs in the balance.

    A DAI remix through the eyes of a male mage Trevelyan. Explores his inner world and relationships, especially with the Lady Seeker--a slow burn, friends-to-lovers, low-key romance situation. Just two people trying to find room for love as they navigate war, duty, and the expectations we place on ourselves and others.

    A note on form: chapters average around 4-5k words, relatively self-contained “episodes” with serialized elements. Now contains 100% more Trespasser. Thanks for reading!

    A day past when Cadash knew something had blown up, she could always tell. Now she waits for a chance to be free from her shackles and find her friends, or hopefully, her friends find her.
    An hour past when he fell out of the Fade following an explosion in the Conclave, killing Divine Justinia. Julian Trevelyan, son to the deceased Lord and Lady Trevelyan lay at the bottom of a Breach spitting out demons. Julian never planned on being the only one in Thedas to hold the ability to close the Breach.
    A minute past when she stood up from being knocked down to see the Conclave crippled to ash and fire. Lavellan was there in Haven when it all began, the being of the Inquisition. Unable to go back home without catching the eye of The Nightingale, she observes and reports the Inquisitions movements back to her people, waiting for further orders.
    A second past when Felicyta "Flick" Pozharsiniy watched the sky rip apart. She had been sent on a mission to figure out where the residents of one of Zemsinlov’s border towns have disappeared to. Pursuing the missing avikan, Flick finds her self roped into the chaos of closing the Breach in the sky and preventing her people from being slaughtered.

    Summary

    "What do you call the stick with the bowl on the end?" she asks, and Deacon raises an eyebrow.

    "Uh, you lost me, Boss."

    "The thing you eat with. Like a fork or a knife but for soup," Clara says, and she's making the motion as if she's eating cereal while she's speaking, as if using the muscles will help her remember if she ever knew it.

    "A spoon?" Deacon says it almost as more of a question, like he's unsure if that's the answer or not.

    Clara snaps her fingers and grins widely. "Yes! Spoon!"

    -

    the sole survivor's first language isn't english, and deacon's first language is bullshit, so together, they make a pretty terrible team.
