    Summary

    Dust Lavellan is pretty happy with her life - she tends bar at The Siren's Call, sleeps with whoever she wants, and isn't responsible for anyone's life but her own. At least, until some random kid stumbles out in front of her motorcycle one afternoon. A kid with a really hot dad...

    The Iron Bull never expected to be a dad, let alone a single dad with an adopted 'Vint kid, but it's pretty much the best thing that's ever happened to him. Sure his sex life is a little limited, what with raising a kid, coaching a Little League team, and working full time. Until he comes home and finds a really hot elf eating cookies on the porch with his kid...

    Eleven year old Cremisius "Krem" Aclassi wants two things - his Little League team to go to the World Series, and to grow up to be a chef. Okay, three things: he'd really like his dad to be slightly less of a huge dork around his new friend Dust. Why are grown ups like this? Can't they just kiss and get it over with already?

    Summary

    Vera's world ended not with a bang, but with a whimper: the year is 2095, the world in the throes of late-stage climate change. The Earth will keep going, the humans - not so much. As it turns out, the apocalypse is contagious: either that, or Vera has spectacularly bad luck. Waking up naked on a bloody altar isn't the best introduction to a new place, but you make do with what life hands you. After a rocky start, Vera finds herself in Markarth, trying to make a new home for herself amidst the violence, corruption, and Thalmor zealotry. But just when things are finally settling down - as much as they can in the city of blood and silver - a Nord and a Dunmer roll into town with the mother of all bad deals. Always read the fine print.

    This story starts about a year before the events of the game and will continue through the timeline and the DLCs. Canon-compliant(ish). Narration is in 3rd person limited; the protagonist is not the Dragonborn.

    Please note: content warnings applied to individual chapters.

    Updates roughly once a week for the foreseeable future.

    With deep gratitude to efmrider for her keen beta-ing eyes and support

    Summary

    Dalish Warden Lyna Mahariel is the Hero of Ferelden, Champion of Redcliffe, Arlessa of Amaranthine, Redeemer of the Urn of Sacred Ashes, and broken-hearted former lover of King Alistair Theirin of Ferelden. For the sake of love, she agreed to Morrigan's dark ritual. She perseveres and wins against yet more darkspawn and conspiracies, and stumbles into yet more dark secrets of the Dalish, the dwarves, and the Wardens. She will go through more, if she must, in the greatest quest of her life: to find a cure for the Calling, and discover just what a living hero must do to cope with their own legend.

    (Canonish because no one said it *didn't* happen, and I've made sure it fits into the lore, timeline, and more. I obsessively checked the wiki, codex entries, fiction, world books, throwaway dialogue, you name it.)
