    Summary

    "The world around them lay in ruins, littered with the remains of once mighty armies and terrible cities, brought to its knees by the Dread Wolf. The Dread Wolf who was all pride and no wisdom. All guilt and no atonement. "

    ---

    Inquisitor Lavellan saved the world, lost the world, then saved it again - loved and lost, loved and lost. Cruel joke upon cruel joke piled atop each other under the disguise of destiny and fate, until the curtains fell on him and Solas with their blades piercing the other's heart. It was a disgustingly poetic end.

    And because his luck was rotten, he wakes at the moment before it all began.

    A second chance or a second doom? Lavellan wasn't sure which he preferred.

    ---

    "Uncover the past, little raven, the Wolf is not the liar here. Those who walk the shadows never leave."

    Summary

    Cullen loses a game of wicked grace again. Instead of losing his clothes, Varric allows him to repay his debts with some information. Cullen gets carried away talking about his love due to the ale in his system and the excitement of winning the war. Who knew he was such a chatty drunk?

    The Inquisitor walks in on Cullen sharing a bit too much with Dorian, Bull, Sera, and Varric. Rather than getting upset, she finds his yammering adorable and loves him all the more or it. Cullen gets wrapped up in his thoughts, realizing just how much Ellana means to him. She has a big heart and he is so proud of the comfortable place he found in it.

    Summary

    For Merrill, the grief carves a familiar hole in her gut; she didn’t know the other alienage “Keepers” very well, having only coordinated with them for the Conclave, trying to petition for the same exemptions from Templar interference that Dalish clans are allowed. She grieves for the lost potential, for the communities losing their guides, for the families losing each other.
    She grieves, and she wants nothing more than for Isabela to be here, carding ringed fingers through her hair and telling her what she has to say to go home to her.

     

    or;
    Merrill has always walked the line between respected and feared, loved and lonely. To be a heretical chosen one is almost fitting.

    Summary

    Dr. Ellana Lavellan, Art Historian and Dalish scholar, has moved back to Minrathous after a terrible year as a failed professor in Orlais. She's slowly piecing her life back together—trying not to think too much about her ex, Solas Fen'Harel, when war breaks out in Val Royeaux. She doesn't expect to suddenly be on another quest to save Thedas—nor is she quite ready to forgive the events of the past two years.

    Summary

    A collection of canon-compliant codex entries, to more deeply examine, and build out the religious lore of Dragon Age. Featuring:

    1. Shartan as the Maker's Prophet and Syncretic Andrastian Beliefs Amongst Alienage Elves

    2. Liberation Theology in the Circle

    3. "Banal'Halam":Dalish beliefs about the Elven Soul after the Betrayal

    And more as I think of ideas.

    Summary

    Written for the autumnal prompt "Full Moon", just a musing on how my Dalish inquisitor celebrates Satinalia from Solas' perspective. Inspired by the idea someone posted somewhere that both of Thedas' moons could be full on Satinalia night.
    --
    The Inquisitor shrugged. “Fen'Harel ma ghilana.” He said, pointing the expression at Solas with a touch of sadness, and Solas chuckled despite himself. 

    “The Dread Wolf leads me astray?” 

    “It’s what we say when someone has been misled,” Taren began to explain, and Solas cut him off, still smirking. 

    “I know.” 

    “The story of Fen’Harel, it’s not something to protect people from like a warrior, waiting to be attacked by savage wolves in the night. That’s not what Fen’Harel is.” 

    “Oh, then what is Fen’Harel?” He asked, unable to help himself.

    Summary

    Gethrael Lavellan is no negotiator, and is expected to do no more than bring Grand Enchanter Fiona back to the Inquisition’s forward camp to discuss an alliance. Of course, no one thought they’d find a Magister in the seat of power instead; or to be offered help by his former student.

    It’s a good thing Dorian is so talented - Gethrael is not terribly good at combat... or much of anything.

    -Though this is Part 2, it's written as a serial! You're more than welcome to start with this one!-

    Summary

    Stumbling out of the pyre that burns in the heart of the human faith, Hellana Lavellan will have her own faith tested when a strange green Mark brands her as their Herald of Andraste.

    The reluctant Inquisitor is proudly, profoundly, deeply Dalish. And she struggles when history and myth overlap, truth and lies collide. Can she reconcile her identity and faith with a rapidly changing world? Will any of her sacrifices be worth it in the end?

    Armed with a sylvan-wood handled dagger, a glimpse into the far future and with her faith to guide her - she is going to be thrust into the epicentre of a war that has been brewing for four thousand years.

    ***

    The sky bleeds and soon the ashes will fall. Will love and faith survive the ruins of her world? Or will the cold shard of betrayal finally snuff the flames?

    Summary

    There is more to him than she expects. What with his drawn face, the soft academic cadence of his voice. But perhaps it is just so, the staff he wields so heavy and solid, that he would have a warrior’s body. The soft rounding curves of his muscles, the hard, imposing line of his form. He is slick with sweat now, as though he’s exerted himself. The hearth at his side illuminates him only in pieces. His back, the round of his shoulders, the long incline of his neck. But beyond him, there is another fire, the one that first drew her here, that she had seen from under the space beneath the door, reflectant across the tall pines beyond the wall. It does not move as fire moves, undulating, curling around the air. And it is pale, almost greenish. Unearthly as it falls over his profile.
    She should go. She has lingered in the rafters too long. But she cannot. It is as if he has her in thrall. He turns, just slightly, just the barest incline of his head. And though his eyes are still cast in shadow, she can feel his gaze upon her.

    -or-

    Girl meets boy. Boy is secretly an ancient god with armageddon on the brain.

    Summary

    The sky has healed, and as years pass, so do the inhabitants of Thedas. Or, at least, so it seems--until a wolf snarls from the shadows, ready to make himself known. It is the end, now, past anything Vir'era knew.

    Summary

    Maia Arithari of Clan Lavellan has lived many years and told many of her people's stories, but she never expected to be a character in those stories, let alone a holy figure in the shemlen's religion or the leader of a rebel group. She had thought the Conclave would be her final grand assignment, after which time she could live the remainder of her days in peace, passing on the tales of her people to the children of her Clan. Ah well, we rarely have control over our fates, do we?

    (A story in which Inquisitor Lavellan is an old, wise, Dalish hahren instead of a young hunter. Solas and Maia are not a couple in this story, but they respect each other)

    rara avis
    [rahr-uh ah-vis]
    origin. latin (tevene)
    noun, plural rarae aves
    1. a rare person or thing; rarity.
    2. literal, a rare bird

    When Dr. Alberta Marieve Shaw left work on Christmas Eve, she was planning on a quiet evening at home before heading off to sit on a beach in the Caribbean for a week, but, things do not go according to plan. She finds herself in a completely foreign world, unlike anything she has ever experienced. At first, it seems that nothing in her past or training could have prepared her for this, but perhaps she is better suited to this world than she initially thought. She must navigate a war between mages and Templars, the brutality of Thedas itself, and the whims of a powerful Inquisitor to survive and find her way home.

    Summary

    Fen’an has long accepted the fact that she’s dying. The orb’s magic is killing her, absorbing her life until she’s nothing but an empty shell.

    Yet when darkness comes for her, in the run-down cabin her old body has decided to take its last rest, destiny sees it fit to play with the elven woman one more time.

    Just as quickly as her eyes close, they open again, and Fen’an finds herself inside an ancient Temple, naked.
    With no one for company but the Dread Wolf.

    Summary

    Relationships are forged in hardship, certainly, but it's the quiet times between grand last-stands and penultimate struggle when one truly notices the change. One mage, that is. And one hero-of-the-universe, too. As well as their peanut-gallery audience of friends.

    (Wherein Dorian and Lavellan both have it bad, go figure. Some allusions and references to the main questline of Dragon Age: Inquisition and its (non-Trespasser) DLC but the majority isn't included. I wanted more of this ship but I'm tired of writing out the entire plot of the game just to change a few small things. That being said, there still may be spoilers!)
