Author has written 15 stories for Dragon Age.
Thanks for dropping by! I'm still relatively new to fanfiction, having caught the bug through my obsession with the characters and lore from Dragon Age 2. More specifically, it was the erstwhile Knight-Captain Cullen that really got me writing, so he'll probably continue to be my primary muse for the time being. I'm still praying to the Bioware gods that he is featured in future game installments so I can chat with him some more instead of putting words in his mouth. :crosses fingers:
About me, I'm a big fantasy/genre fan in general and have been for many years, and although my rebel alliance decal has graced my car for years, I've only truly embraced my inner fangirl somewhat recently. I'm not a huge gamer, but I absolutely loved both DA: Origins and DA2 (and their spiritual predecessors like BG).
DABB: What Counts
I was delighted to participate in wave 2 of the 2012 Dragon Age Big Bang and just posted my story What Counts. It takes place during DA2's Act 3 and explores how loaded Cullen's statement to Meredith about arresting the Champion might have been.
The most exciting part of this process was collaborating with the talented vieralynn, who created art inspired by the story. I encourage you to check them out at devart:. You can also see them incorporated into the story at .
Knight's Bloom Series
Knight's Bloom - As of Jan 2012, I've just finished my first long story, Knight's Bloom. It follows fem!Hawke and Cullen, picking up just after the events of DA2's Act 3. With Hawke as Viscountess and Cullen promoted to Knight-Commander, a new friendship ensues as they attempt to navigate these new roles. The story's ultimate goal was to try to explain why Viscountess Hawke would eventually leave Kirkwall and why no one seems to know where she went. It was pretty much written before Dragon Age: Asunder came out, so somewhat follows its own AU storyline for what happened after the events of Act 3 (although, interestingly, it's not too far afield).
For fun, a reader has drawn some lovely pics inspired by Knight's Bloom. Check out. Yay! In particular:
First Haircut - A short drabble, inspired by a prompt about Cullen's hair, regarding Marian and Cullen's son's first haircut.
Catch a Dragon by the Toe - A short story, set three years after Knight's Bloom. When Marian and Cullen's son, Malcolm, sneaks away to meet a mysterious friend, he never imagined the secrets his friend might be hiding or the danger he might pose.
All Bets Are Off - A fluffy drabble about a bet that ultimately brings Marian Hawke and Cullen together.
Blonde - A humorous drabble wherein Varric tries to figure out the color of Cullen's hair, while embarrassing Marian Hawke and Cullen along the way.
Maker Be My Guide - A short story written for the Bioware Dragon Age: Asunder writing challenge, which follows templar recruit Tamsin on the start of a journey to find her own path. I hope to expand it, especially since the challenge word limit was... challenging.
A Love of His Own - A little exploration of a possible backstory for Cullen's romantic history. Just how innocent is he really? Also check out .
Trust - A short story written for a BSN Cullen Thread milestone focused on first kisses. It's a scene from a longer, WIP that's been germinating in my head, so I went ahead and jotted it down. Our hero cuts Cullen's hair with unexpected results.
Andraste's Grace - A story sort of from the same WIP as Trust. It's a side story I may not be able to include, but it's the same characters. Marian Hawke and Cullen are on the run and must seek shelter from a mysterious local connection of Cullen's that turns out to rather insightful about his character.
In progress (ca. February 2012):
I'm now getting back to a much long WIP with the characters from Trust and Andraste's Grace, set post-DA2.
