I just finished, and I loved it!
I'm so glad that Corin got to take Flambeau! That horse will get to have a good life now :D
This was also a very informative story; I'm not very familiar with medieval jousting, and I enjoyed reading this because I feel like I walk away knowing more than when I came in.
Although I did love seeing the Cousland family together as well. I love how well they work with each other, and how obvious it is that the whole family cares for each other. My favorite though was Cailan. You write him so well, and I loved his good humor.
Seriously, this was such a great story! It made me laugh, and I enjoyed seeing this glimpse of Corin before the Blight happened :D

This story was made of 50% Awesome and 50% Win.
You hit a great number of the finer points of storytelling and, as Cailan pointed out, was a remarkable story with just that vague hint of romanticism that makes these things awesome. I think the word that best describes your writing in my mind is "canny". You're a canny writer and you write very engaging stories that grab you by the short hairs of your attention span and don't easily let go until the curtain falls (or you run out of story and fall off of the proverbial stage).

Just stumbled upon this, great story, really fitting for what i read of corin in the main piece :)
Though i do feel somewhat obligated to point out that Fereleden and Thedas in general do hace horses, if you didn't know that, Queen Rowan was actually commander of Maric's cavalry forces during the rebellion, and loghain's father bred horses before being forced to become an outlaw, bioware was just too lazy or had some unknown reason for not including them in the game ;)

This was a very nice story and a good read. It filled some blanks I had from "Corin" (the story). As usual, your writing was marvelous, and keep up the good work!

This was as enjoyable as your larger work featuring this M!Cousland. The way he treats horses and servants is particularly disarming, and the letter at the end made me smile.
If there's a story about this Orlesian princess who loves horses more than men, I'd appreciate being pointed towards it. I have a feeling that I might like her as well as I like Corin. :3

The letter at the end is most intriguing - I wonder if these events will have later consequences ...
I love Antoine. His final conversation with Egile was very satisfying!

I am loving the glimpses of the Cousland family and their warm, strong relationship. The jousting seems so emblematic of Corin's character - finding an obscure talent to develop that everyone else scoffs at and becoming the best he can at it. It reveals a lot about why he was so well-fitted to lead his motley crew to victory over the Blight.

Cailan was perfect in this - you can see how much huge joy he gets out of being king and a man among other like-minded men.

Finally getting a chance to start this one after a chaotic couple of weeks! I liked the beginning - it's good to see a younger Corin, one who's not quite so sure of himself but still willing to take a step forward when necessary, and to get a glimpse of the Couslands in happier times. Looking forward to catching up the rest of the way.

Interesting take on why there aren't many horses (at least none to use) in Dragon Age. Heh, perhaps Loghain had them all rounded up for being "terribly Orlesian" animals.
Anyway superb work as always. I really enjoy your Dragon Age stories. Keep at it.

Interesting story. I was wondering myself why there are no horses in Ferelden. It would be fun.
Maybe they will add horses in DAIII.

I'm really enjoying your 'Corin Cousland' stories! I found myself wanting to find out how he does on the circuit, and seeing if anything came of the Orlesian interest in Corin- though I assume this is more of a prequel piece to 'Corin'. Still, it was very enjoyable- thank you for writing it!
