    Summary

    Ten years.

    Dorian, driven and desperate, standing under a horizon that threatens to tear the world to pieces.

    Rilienus, shaded in shadow, stalking among specters, consumed by dreams of vengeance.

    When their eyes meet, their hearts stutter, longing and loss and-

    Memories of sweltering evening embraces.

    Nightmares of blood and betrayal.

    War humming on the horizon, a sky as dark as night, filled with celestial emerald and earthy ruby, casting all of Ferelden in a horrifying hue.

     

    He would’ve said yes.

     

    The words echo in their minds unbidden as they stand together before the coming storm.

    Summary

    Novel-length Cullenmance, where our dear awkward Commander trips into love with a female apostate mage, Alyenna, who joins the Inquisition as a fighter. Angst! Pride! Prejudice! Humor! Kissing! Sex! and More!

    "Sparks" is a super slow burn that more or less follows the events of Dragon Age: Inquisition (with a short prelude) and the canon events of the whole series, focusing mainly on the conversations and friendships at Haven and Skyhold. A light, fun story that also gets to the emotional heart of a Cullen romance (with some spice).

    Because of the length it's being published in two parts -- thanks for reading, I hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    Family. Legacy. Respect.
    Dorian bartered away his freedom and independence to purchase them when he’d resigned himself to walk the path his father had designed for him. His shackles chafed, even as he toed the line diligently, marrying a woman he loved but couldn’t be in love with, having a son he was mortified of disappointing-
    It was almost enough to build a life from, until disease rendered both his son and his marriage feeble.
    A visit from a mysterious doctor threatens to turn his household, his world, and his heart upside-down.
    England. 1867.

    Summary

    Varric's friend Hawke has appeared in Skyhold just in time to join their merry little band on a trek to Adamant. Somewhere in among all that, feelings begin to stir between Dorian and the Champion of Kirkwall. Cole unknowingly cements that bond when he calls attention to the hurt they both carry and, as it turns out, drown out in much the same way.

    Summary

    An alternative universe where The Blight consumes Tevinter, centered on Dorian/Lavellan and their alternate lives. Blurry timelines so I don't have to fixate on how old/not alive side characters would be. Lots of playing with lore because I like to have fun.

    Summary

    What if Dorian hadn’t gotten away from his father in time, and Halward Pavus had proceeded with the blood magic ritual to change his sexuality? And what if the future Inquisitor isn’t the only one to fall out of the sky at the Temple of Sacred Ashes?

    Summary

    Dorian just wants to do the right thing and get the mess in the sky dealt with, perhaps prevent a few of his idiot countrymen from ending the world, if necessary. This is somewhat complicated by the presence of Andraste's Herald, a tall, surly elf that can't seem to decide whether he wants to kiss Dorian or punch him.

    Summary

    Dorian and the Bull have unfinished business. When things go Very Badly for the Inquisition and Dorian during the confrontation with the Qunari, Dorian makes a split-second decision that leaves him questioning everything, even what he once shared with Bull.

    A fix-it fic for the Bad Ending, with dragons and death magic.

    Summary

    The Inquisitor has had to make one too many decisions that have affected too many people. Badly, in some cases. The latest is the one in which he left Reyes Hawke behind in the Fade so he and Grey Warden Alistair could escape it. In the aftermath, Trevelyan is so deeply affected that his lover questions the Inquisitor’s sanity…and when Trevelyan starts seeing the spirit of the man he condemned to death by demon, he does as well.

    Summary

    Two alternate timelines. Two versions of Dorian. But why is the other one so disgustingly perfect?

    Fate and the Fade bring them all together. And so Dorian of pre-relationship Dorian/Bull meets established relationship Dorian/Trevelyan. It's all very annoying at first.

    Works as a stand-alone fic, though it's also an outsider POV fic that can fit within my Trevelyan/Dorian series.

    Summary

    Drabbles exploring my Blood Mage!Dorian, sort of a vampire au. Aiming to be chronological + writing as warm ups between projects so anything could happen. Update schedule is whatever, doesn't have a set end. Follows the Inquisition plot. Some things are better understood if you're reading Blighted Empire but you can probably assume what you need to.
    Warnings:
    Conversion therapy comes up in this story. Although the point is it's bad and I'm writing through an LGBT perspective. I can see it being triggering. Please take care of yourself.
    Unsure how violent or sexual this will get. I've turned warnings off and will warn in summaries.
    References since I barely describe appearances:

    Summary

    Set just before Trespasser. In Minrathous, Dorian reconnects with an old friend and tries unsuccessfully to avoid his father.

    It's late afternoon in Minrathous and Dorian Pavus sits in a comfortable chair on his third floor balcony. When he looks up from his reading, he can take in the view of the grand but crumbling city, its foundations held together in some places by magic alone. His father is waiting to speak with him in the parlor downstairs, or so he's been told, but Magister Halward hasn't yet waited long enough. And so Dorian turns the page and simply keeps reading.

    This reads perfectly well as a completely stand-alone fic, though it also fits within my series.

    Summary

    Honestly, Dorian had thought the worst part about coming home would be Cullen finally ending things with Sylaera. He'd seen first hand how wildly unstable she was, after all, and she rather regarded the Commander as a personal possession of hers. Dorian had been sure that once that bit of unpleasantness was over everything would settle into a new normal. Though she might stomp her feet and perhaps bloody a few more noses, it wasn't like she could murder either of them, after all - Cullen commanded her forces, and Dorian was the only mage she seemed able to stand. He'd thought the worst she could do was rage at them, and then it would be over. Unfortunately, the Inquisitor is far more devious - and vicious - than he'd ever given her credit for.

    Oh, and there were still the small matters of Corypheus and Fade Rifts and something about the world ending. A dashing mage's work is never done.

    Summary

    What would it be like to have a soulmate?

    Your perfect partner whom the universe allocated to you and you alone?

    Thoughts like these had always been present in the back of Cullen's mind, though to receive your soulmark and have the chance of finding them meant you had to have made eye contact at least once. In a world as big as Thedas, with the millions of people who inhabited it, the chance of meeting your soulmate was impossible... wasn't it?

    Summary

    The Inquisitor is having trouble explaining something to Dorian. Needless to say, Dorian isn't expecting ANY of what happens. Not that he's complaining. He is, however, hungry.

    This is a songfic.
