The combinations worked well. i agree with you that Awakenings just did not give us that rich storytelling environment. I loved how you brought Zevran in. It was one of the things that I disliked about Awakenings. I hated losing Zev...a silly codex note and that was only if you were in a romance with him! Definitely looking forward to Cogburn's side/Epilogue.

Aww...going to be so sad when it ends. I hope you will think about doing dargon age 2...please.

Another great chapter, makes me sad that we are near the end of the game.

The thing is, I'm sure that if he does find her as is possible in Witch Hunt, I imagine he would join her and walk through that Eluvian. He would do anything to have the chance to be with the woman he loves and their child. He just has to slay that pesky archdemon first. ;)
This was really well done. I know that I had wondered how you would handle this part since we had both Maddie and Cogburn, but I believe it was handled quite well. I definitely look forward to seeing what happens next.

This is still a bloody amazing story :D
Even after 77 chapters o.O
Love the way you've managed to portray everyone, and I agree with most of how you see everyone (except the Behlen thing, but oh well)
As for the upcoming battle, I think it is better to stick to Canon for the splitting up, but obviously a larger group will join the Wardens and using the allies would be awesome I think anyway
As for your ideas to continue on through Awakenings, I think you're perfectly justified to finish the story with the Coronation, but it would be absolutely amazing if you do get through all the way to Witch Hunt :)
Can't wait for the next chapters .

I hope Morrigan can have a chance at a full life with Cogburn

I loved that Maddie is already thinking about what Weisshaupt would say. That is classic Maddie being the forward thinker that she is. The idea of saying that Maddie wasn't ever made a Grey Warden is a great idea as well. Let's hope this all works out, though we know that things seldom go as planned.

Love, love, love your story. Anxiously awaiting the next segment!

I am really enjoying your story and your take on all of the characters. I think Cogburn is close to how my husband played his Cousland Rogue. I am really enjoying your take on Alistair. I agree with your comments that his evolution was gradual, and I like that you've added more of the conversations that I thought you should be able to have with him. I can't wait to see what you have for us next. Thanks for sharing your story.

I like it still. Duller chapters... no offense. But it's setting up a lot of important stuff, and I can understand the need for it all. smile face.

Just a thought, have you considered having Cogburn securing Anora's support by suggesting a marriage alliance? It seems to me like that would be the best way to convince Anora that they - or at least Cogburn - was on her side.
| csorciere 2/3/13 . chapter 72
Short or not, I enjoyed it. I wasn't sure quite which direction you would take things when they met with Ser Cauthrien and the other guards, but it was good to see. I also liked the conversation between Morrigan and Cogburn. However, they've been caught so I now wonder what they're going to say to Alistair. He doesn't want to be King, will he try to dissuade them?

I am rather surprised that Maddie gave in so easily on the escape plan. Then again, we know that she loves Alistair so much that she'll do what she can to ease his mind. While the chapter may have been short, I enjoyed it. I know that I am interested to see what happens once they get to Howe and then attempt to actually flee. Sure they have plans, but even the best made plans can go awry.
I hope that you are able to find your notes, that would be incredibly frustrating to have them missing.

Loved this chapter, I'm rather curious about what Maddie thought of the dress Alistair picked out though.
To answer your questions: I do not believe Cogburn would spare Loghain at all. Because of Loghain's involvement with Howe, he would probably feel that he was just as responsible for the death of their family as Howe is. Maddie may not want Loghain killed out of deference to Anora. Of course, that respect to Anora may be diminished if Anora betrays them at the Arl of Denerim's estate resulting in imprisonment for her, Alistair, and/or Cogburn in Fort Drakon. I believe that Cogburn wants to put Maddie out of harm's way as much as possible and the best way to do that is to put Alistair on the throne with Maddie as his queen. Alistair doesn't wish to be king, but would be find with it as long as he gets to keep Maddie by his side. Maddie is a hard one to pin down on this one though. I think she believes that Alistair will make a fine King and the Couslands always stand by their duty and support the Theirins, and will happily be by his side. However, they have to know that Anora could raise problems for them, especially if they kill Loghain at the Landsmeet.
You definitely have a lot of options available to you. :) Have fun with them.
