    Summary

    "Magic exists to serve man, and never to rule over him. Foul and corrupt are they who have taken His gift, and turned it against His children. They shall be named Maleficar, accursed ones. They shall find no rest in this world, or Beyond." Anders knew the verse. Every mage did. But Anders was a runner. He ran from the Circle. He ran from the Templars. He ran from relationships. So what did he care? He was never going to rest anyway.

    Summary

    Hawke's life is full: between working as a bouncer at The Hanged Man five nights a week and moonlighting security at other events around Kirkwall, he barely has enough time to sleep. It doesn't help that his dreams are bloody visions of all the people he's failed to protect in his life, and the guilt hangs heavy around his neck.

    His life is full and he can't protect everyone. So he tries his best to not let The Hanged Man's newest regular patron squirm his green-eyed way into Hawke's heart... and fails. Surely he can make room for one more person. What could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    Anders, a vampire R.N., is just trying to live his life. Fenris, an elven vampire hunter, takes issue with this. When the blood drinker shows him mercy instead of sticking his head on a pike, however, an alternative solution is brought forth that leaves both alive, but tethered.

    Blood bound, the pair try to go about their business without stepping on each other's toes, but soon discover how much they really don't mind the other being in their space. Rating going up in chapter 5.

    Summary

    Three times in Anders life that drove him forwards in hopes of a better life, for all mages.
    -
    Anders trembled, fingers hooked into the soft fabric like a dying man, panting against the mattress until it felt as if he could choke from the warmth.

    Karl wasn't here, he wasn't. Anders didn't know if it was the demons again, or the templars, or even his own mind, finally snapped after so long in the dark and quiet, but he could hear his voice.

    Summary

    ** Inspired by and based on the "Claimed-verse" by cjulina, who was gracious enough to let me play in her sandbox.**
    ** PAY ATTENTION TO TAGS**

    Life is dangerous for Thedas mages - especially for apostates in Kirkwall. A few years before the mage rebellion began in earnest, the Chantry issued a new mandate for caught apostates. They were to be killed, made Tranquil...or Claimed. The new Rite of Claiming binds a mage to the Templar who takes them, and forces them to submit to the Templar's will, for good or for ill. The reasoning for this new Rite - as dubious and given to grave abuses as it is - is that it provides a middle ground between the finality of death, and the complete erasure of a mage's self through Tranquility.

    Templar Marion Hawke is opposed to the Claiming, but is forced by circumstances to reluctantly admit that it might be the only way to save Thedas' most defiant mage. This is the story of a reimagined Warrior!Hawke and her complicated relationship with a canon Anders, who she tries to rescue the only way she knows how. As Kirkwall slowly goes insane around them, they both wrestle with the ultimate question surrounding the choice to Claim him: can anything good ever come from evil?

    Summary

    For Anders, the impossible is only an obstacle to be overcome to be with Karl again; for Fenris and Sebastian, cursed to become animals at sunrise and sunset, the impossible is their only salvation. Evading capture; breaking a curse; toppling those responsible: what could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    Hawke spends all of his time looking after everyone but himself, and Anders has spent three years waiting for a phone call that will never come. Sometimes healing and salvation come in the form of piano bars, bouncy castles, gratuitous amounts of beer, and friends that won’t stop giving you shit because they love you. Tags will be updated as needed, this is a rough estimate.

    Summary

    The Circle of Magi was an unforgiving environment to grow up in, and while some mages thrived in its tightly-structured confines, others threw themselves out the windows of the upper storeys, just to be sure they'd never have to go back. In between were the ones who grated at the edges, secretly indulging in everything from the basic facets of life denied them to the study of forbidden magics, from wild escape attempts to filling the templar barracks with bees. These were the Pranksters of Kinloch Hold.
