Maybe, one day she will be able to have some time to herself and Alistair. I also think she's gonna have to have a stern word with Anders as, if she's not careful, Alistair will be separating some part of his anatomy from his body, be it his head or something else...
I love it. Is something going on between Loghain and the new ruler of Gwaren? Siobhan needs a romantic interest also, maybe Nathaniel!
Next chapter please xxx

Wow. Really well written, and extremely hilarious. I loved the jealous Alistair confronting Anders. You really got their personalities down. Great job!

Anders is truly playing a dangerous game to be sure. He's cruising for a bruising and be it from Evelyn or Alistair won't matter in the long run. Nate is flying close to the wind also, but then boys do like to push boundaries do they not.
Loghain would've likely banged their heads together for their trouble, but then he does have the benefit of experience. Anora is also blatantly pushing Evelyn and whether that's because of what's happened with her father or something more subtle I can't quite put my finger on it.
I do hope Evelyn can maintain her composure and strength, she's gonna need it.
Next chapter please

Eeeeek! Oh man Anders sure has a mouth on him doesn't he? Lol, always finding someway to say something, haha love him. And I love Alistair being Alistair, jealous and now he can't get the thought out of his head, although if he knew what happened (and I do, because I LOOVE your other 2 stories) I think he would be more upset the jealous of Anders :)
I love Nathaniel! He's so collected and knows what's up, and still slightly an ass ;) I love all your characters, they are all portrayed well and. Just love your story, I can't wait to see what Evie has to say when she finds out what happened lol :) thanks for the update!

Sorry Anders but you deserved that. Dear lord Evelyn's going to have her hands full making sure those two behave. Or she'll get Loghain to have words.

Sorry about the lack of reviews from me, been really busy lately.
Anyway, I liked this chapter. I always wondered why we never saw Anders when we were in the Tower. Apparently, he escaped when the Tower was taken over by demons. But again, we never saw him before or after that. Eh, he was probably in the "solitary confinement", or he was on his 14587643(rd) escape attempt. I also wondered why he never mentions an Amell Warden to Hawke, giving that the two are related. Weird.
Anyway, I like how you added in Cullen, and the past relationship Evelyn and him had. I've always felt sorry for the poor guy. He was in love with a female Amell/Surana, but he never gets her in the end. Here's hoping he has a chance in DA3.
Well, looking forward to the next chapter!

Ooh Anders being everything that defines him. Jealous of Lynnie's decision and still trying to persuade her otherwise, I can definitely see this boiling into something bigger, and with Loghains assumptions? It'll be interesting to read further into!
Evie is such a great character, such a fantastic leader and headstrong when she needs to be, yet so vulnerable and caring about her friends, and how sad she is about not getting to choose her life. Excellent update, can't wait for the next chapter!
| naomis8329 chapter 9 . 8/20/2012
Oh dear I think we will have trouble ahead with Anders. I just hope that Alistair keeps his cool and also help Evie get through it all.
Anders is being Anders, hoping that "his" charm is greater than Alistair's and not prepared in the slightest to believe that Evie could love someone else completely, totally and not him.
This is the Tower upbringing at its worst I think.
Another great chapter and I think that no matter how hard Loghain tries to stay out of it he wont succeed. He will have to intervene at some point.

Wow Siobhan is sooo fiery! I love that girl! And I love the patience and tactfulness of Evie, she never seems to miss a beat! Staying so calm and collective when she has every right to be as mad as Sio is! The way she handled Nathaniel just shows was an amazing leader she is. I sure hope he isn't a pompous jerk the whole time, if he lightens up I could see some really hilarious banter from him, Loghain, and Alistair!
Anders has gotten himself into trouble it seems! He just keeps learning more and more about is dear Lynnie and her love. I absolutely cannot wait to see what she says to him! Always gotta be sticking his foot in his mouth _ excellent update! I absolutely adore Evie!

I loved it the way she managed to suss out Nathaniel and got him into the Order. I'm looking forward to the interaction between them all.
I'm worried about Anders and the way he is over Alistair and the fact that he now knows about Alistair's background and is comparing him with Cullen. I think she's not going to be very pleased with Anders at all here.
We still don't know how things ended with Jowan, and Cullen for that matter, and I can't wait to find out.
I so look forward to this story and can't wait for the next instalments.
Loghain and Howe, Howe and Alistair, Alistair and Anders, Anders and Nate, and we haven't gotten Sigrun or Valena in the mix yet. My head is spinning lol.
| Keyarayek chapter 7 . 7/26/2012
OooOoOOoOoo..we are going to have to keep an eye on Anders huh?
Excellent story you have, I like that Alistair and Loghain can...somewhat get along ;)
Love all the banter, the characters are truly in their own skin and I can't wait to read what happens next :)
| naomis8329 chapter 7 . 7/22/2012
Oh dear, what is she doing to him. She is in love and belongs to Alistair yet sending mixed signals to Anders. This is not good. He is misreading everything she is saying and has no idea that she is doing so.
Its a pity that Siobhan is gonna have to go back to Denerim, I do happen to like her so much. I'm not sure either what the business is with her, Loghain and her sister Rhia is all about, but I'm hoping this will be explained at some point.
I love Evie so much and worry about her, as one moment she is so strong and the next she buckles so completely that someone without her strength would never recover. I had hoped that the guilt she feels from others dying or leaving, would have disappated somewhat, but it appears this is not so. Thank goodness for Alistair being able to counteract her abilities and thereby subduing her somewhat. I still hope that she will stop guilt-tripping and goodness knows how she is gonna cope with Nate Howe. Should be rather interesting. Him becoming a Warden, the Couslands and Loghain, well with Anders and Alistair too, good grief my head's spinning lmao.
Thank you for such wonderful characters, real, fabulously funny and totally different in every way.
| naomis8329 chapter 6 . 7/18/2012
She feels so much for others doesn't she. The weight of the world on her fragile shoulders and yet not entirely her fault that these things had happened. Did she let Jowan be executed/made tranquil when they finally caught him, or did she liberate him and turn him into a Warden?
I know he and Anders were her closest friends and to lose them must have been the hardest cuts of all.
A wonderful chapter and I love Evie with a passion.

I think I may just have died laughing:
Alistair scoffed. "She doesn't need my supervision, Loghain; I'm just not comfortable with someone I don't even know cozying up to her so quickly. I mean, sure, she knows him...obviously, I mean, the way she trusted him immediately, even though he's also clearly a gigantic arse-"
"She's never trusted anyone you consider to be an arse, that's true," Loghain continued, heading back to collect more of the fallen.
"Would you stop making me sound unreasonable?" Standing alone by the wagon now, Alistair threw his arms wide, irritated that Loghain had turned his perfectly legitimate complaints around to somehow sound hollow, whiny, and jealous. He didn't actually sound like that... did he?
Spot on characterisation here. Bloody brilliant.
Evelyn telling Anders about the events at the Tower was heartbreaking. She is carrying around so much unresolved sadness. :( And then the scene with the blighted soldier, it gave me cold shivers.
She is blaming herself for so much, how can she endure it?
Alistair, oh Maker, NO! *Giggles*
He went right into that one and it was perfect! XD I could just hear their voices, absolutely awesome banter!
And he is right, she needs to rest and gather her strength again. Very observant and poignant.
Hmmmmmmmmm, no Joining in this chapter. But awwwwww, that bittersweet closure to the chapters had me smiling. They have come so far. And I am sure that, together, they will be able to face whatever may come.
After loads of ANGST, of course. But that's a given! XD

It's so lovely to see Siobhan again. That gal kicks some serious butt!
Loved how Evelyn held her own in the crossfire with Anora and Rylock, that shows just how much she has grown. And it's also lovely to see glimpses just how close she and Alistair are now. They are amazingly matched.
Evelyn's concern for her old friend his heartwarming and I can see why Alistair may be a bit concerned there. He, Anders, clearly isn't over his feelings for her and seeing her so changed...it'll do lots to fan that attraction even further.
And Siobhan is Arlessa of Denerim now, VERY fitting. I'm glad of it, because not only is she capable and competent but under her watch, the lot of many will be improved.
Onto the Joining. Lovely chapter, fleshing out Awakening's skeletal plot!
