As per her agreement with Thorin, Hawke goes to Erebor to set things right for the line of Durin. Really, what had they been thinking? When you deal with a dragon, you hire a professional!
And that's how a cocky, self-assured blood mage finds herself in a world without lyrium, trying to convince a proud and distrustful king that some shades of grey are lighter than others. Her motivation is slipping, her righteous memories of Kirkwall twisting and turning until it's not clear who betrayed whom the worst. Oh Maker, how can she wash the blood off her hands?
“I sense the darkness in you, little sorcerer,” he almost purred, “the same darkness that lies heavy on Thorin Oakenshield’s mind. Why do you fight it? Why do you not reach for the power that is at your fingertips, and rise to greatness in the night that is coming?”
(Actually a double helix story, with Kili/Tauriel taking up almost half of the screentime...)
