    Summary

    Kallian was ten when the birthmark fully formed. A wolf’s head silhouette above her pelvis on the left side of her belly button. As soon as Kallian saw it she knew that life as she knew it was over. She was a Chosen of Fen’Harel.

    Often, after a particularly hard day, Kallian dreamed of a meadow. Leaning against a tree gave her a chance to cry without the prying eyes of the other elves. Eventually she saw a white wolf walk over to her and settle its head on her lap. Even though she knew that she should, Kallian had no fear of the animal. Rather she weaved her fingers through the beasts fur and told it of her woes.

    She was a Chosen of Fen'Harel, his Ambassador for Clan Lavellan. And she was being sent to spy on the Conclave.

    Summary

    Everyone has a Tether, a mark connecting them to other like-minded souls. Most have one in their life. Rarely, does anyone have more than that.

    Ashara emerges from the Conclave with more marks than she wishes: the anchor, a tether to the Dread Wolf, and a tether to someone symbolic with a lion. But the Conclave has also created other complications: there are large periods of her life that she does not remember. Ten years, if not more, are missing from her life. Her time in Kirkwall, though short lived, is a blur she doesn't remember. And the more she serves with the Inquisition, the more she starts to fear that she might not be the person everyone believes her to be.

    This is a story of connections, of the Inquisitor, and of two men whose lives are connected to her in ways that neither of them could really imagine.

    Updates will at least be once a week, possibly more as I get inspired! (Current: Wednesdays)

    Summary

    My previous summaries were shit so here are some basics:
    Scarlett Trevelyan can't open up emotionally
    Commander Cullen can't open up physically

    Now that she's Inquisitor, every shit person from her past suddenly wants to come back to haunt her.
    Cullen pledged himself to the Inquisition. He needs to be strong, even if the nightmares are getting worse.

    Scarlett could have never imagined a former templar helping her, nor Cullen a mage.

    Summary

     

    " “What was it you wanted to speak to me about?” Cullen asked as he knelt at the small fireplace, adding a log to feed the flame; naked without the fur caressing his neck. The warm flicker of the growing fire shimmering against his breastplate.

     

    “Comman-”

    “Cullen” he looked to Evelyn, light playing across his face. “By the Maker, I’m sick of titles today, aren’t you?” "  
    ~

     
    A creative imagining of how their relationship develops whilst helping each other and themselves through their struggles with their mental health issues/histories and ever mounting workloads within the Inquisition.
    We'll be touching on the main points DA:I, for cannon and momentum (trying my very best for this not to be just a retelling of the cut scenes!).
    Diverging from cannon within character dev/backstory, motivations, companion convo's and of course thus giving us 'reasons' for Cullen smut, good stuffs & some general fluffy filling in of the gaps between!

    Summary

    This never should’ve happened.
    We never should’ve met.
    Love shouldn't bloom from such tragedy, and yet here I stand falling for a woman many consider the messenger of Andraste.
    It's blasphemous.

     

    There's something more to the Commander.
    I could feel it.
    Something beneath the ex- Chantry boy's diffidence, something primal.
    But I'm now considered a key figure in the religion he follows.
    And even though I know I'm still just a woman, he sees someone closer to his god than he's ever known.
    Still, I won't stop trying to bring out the Lion I know lurks beneath all that armor.

    Summary

    “I know who she looks like Cullen. You need to be careful, this is not Valwyn.”

    Leliana knows. Of course Leliana knows. She was there when he was rescued from the tower. She was there when his secret was revealed. The Inquisition’s spymaster knows just how he felt about the late Hero of Ferelden.

    And she’s just made it obvious she suspects his current feelings for the Herald of Andraste.

After agreeing to aid the newly formed Inquisition, she learns that the man who has caught her eye, the Inquisition's Commander no less, is truly her worst nightmare. However the Commander suffers from his own demons, and is determined to slay them once and for all. Sarenna must now learn to protect herself from hostile nighttime visitors, while playing nice with them during her waking hours.

    Summary

    Solona Amell awaits her harrowing, knowing that it could come any day now. She’ll be glad to get the Templars off her back a little, when she becomes a fully-fledged member of the Circle of Magi—should she survive her harrowing.

    Life in the Circle Tower is a difficult one, not only for her, but for a newly qualified Templar, Cullen Rutherford, who is beginning to feel sympathy for the mages locked away from the world purely for their gift of magic. But if the other Templars knew about his feelings for Solona Amell, a woman he has never spoken to, but can’t help watching from a distance, he would surely be removed from the Order he admires.

    Join Cullen and Solona on their journey as the Fifth Blight strikes Ferelden, but it won’t end once the Blight is defeated… They meet again in Kirkwall, and again in Skyhold… But can a relationship between a Templar and a Mage work?

    Summary

    Kieran of Clan Lavellan had always expected to live a quiet life. Even when she started showing signs of magic in her early years, even when she was named the Lavellan clans first just a handful of years down the line, and even when Keeper Deshanna sent her outside of the clan alone to observe the chantry conclave so far away from home. To just watch from afar to gather knowledge of the future, and maybe, even hope the templar-mage could be brought to a close. Yes, even then, she thought a quiet life and an even quieter death would await.
    Of course that’s when just about anything and everything went tits up.

    Summary

    Cullen starts to dream about her, and that is when he knows he's screwed.

    The relationship between Inquisitor Trevelyan and Cullen Rutherford told through Cullen's POV. While the story stays mostly canon and there are occasional major canon scenes, this mostly focusses on the in between moments.

    Summary

    Cullen Rutherford has spent the last seven years believing that demons are everywhere, and nothing about Kirkwall has done anything to dissuade that mindset. The chantry (and Meredith) have lead him to believe that demons are can be found wherever mages can be found, and wherever death can be found.

    But after meeting a rather odd creature, Cullen's doubts about the chantries teachings only seem to increase.

    Summary

    Haunted by the mistakes of her past, Evana Lavellan feels (reluctantly) compelled to stay and help the newly dubbed "Inquisition" close the Breach. But no longer than that. After all, they only care for her welfare because of the mark on her hand.

    Unfortunately, every mission seems to take her further away from her goal instead of closer to it. But each refugee saved and disaster averted also brings with it a sliver of tranquility, a fleeting taste of atonement for past wrongs. Surrounded by new people - new friends - she discovers a wider world than she'd ever imagined with her clan, a world in which she has the power to improve the lives of both elves AND mages.

    Strangest of all, she finds herself drawn to an unlikely friend and confidant in Inquisition's ex-templar military advisor who, like her, is all too familiar with the bitter taste of regret... and the fragile touch of hope.

    **Game scenes/dialogue included but also tons of original "in-between" moments, dialogue, character development and introspection. Super mild AU for shuffling conversation locations and tweaking the order of events. Quizzy is my own.

    Summary

    After her discharge from the Alliance, Commander Helen Trevelyan joined the Andromeda Initiative, wanting to leave her personal tragedies and a psycho ex-boyfriend behind her. She expected to sleep for 600 years, and wake up in a med bay. Instead, she crash-landed on a snow-covered mountain, ten-thousand years later. She is alone, confused, and dying from eezo radiation. And the only sign of civilization is an old church in the distance.

    Many, many thanks to my betas, Dreadlordcherrycake and Duinemerwen, who have advised me on all matters of lore, plausibility and verb tense. If it wasn't for them, this story would still be in cryo. Any mistakes are mine, not theirs.

    I have a regular work schedule IRL, which means I don't have a regular update schedule on AO3. This story is visually supported.
