Author has written 4 stories for Dragon Age.
Update 27/10/12: Wow! Two years of my life and I've finally finished Death and the Maiden! Now that the writing fever of the past month has passed I'll finally be able to catch up with everyone to whom I owe emails, PMs, reviews and updates :) Your support has meant the world to me and I've loved bouncing ideas. The story begun in DATM will continue in The Sons Of Dreams...I promise this time to make the monster chapters shorter and update more regularly.
Check out this gorgeous pic of Rilian, titled "The Warden Sulked In Her Tent" by the amazing analect :)

Death and the Maiden: the story of Rilian Tabris from the Landsmeet to the endgame, including the events of Awakenings. Unlikely alliances see the war take a very different turn from canon, and sow seeds that will change the face of Thedas.
The Grey Tales. Proudly co-written with Icey Cold and Shakespira, The Grey Tales tells the story of the founding of the Wardens, as told to Alistair by Duncan and Riordan on a chilly evening around the campfire. Expect heroes, Tevinter mages, romance...oh, and - GRIFFONS! :) You can find the link here:

TGT was Betaed by the talented Enaid Adeyrn.
Feast of Starvelings. Rylock/Loghain/Wynne one-shot set directly after the events of Death and the Maiden Fourteen. Ok, I said I wasn't sure whether this would be DATM canon or not. I lied. It is! (Or at least - the main story is - the framing fic set 10 years on - not necessarily...)
Stories in progress:
The Sons Of Dreams: sequel to Death and the Maiden. An expansion of the themes of Awakenings, Legacy, DA2 and Asunder, taking place over ten years and intended as a loose tie-in with DA2.
I Speak Because I Can: Ril's diary, beginning five years before the start of Origins. Also starring Shianni, Adaia, Cyrion, Habren, Alistair, Ser Otto, Garn Brosca, Nelaros, and Marjolaine.
Chains Of Blood And Water: AU story beginning around 10 DA, in a world in which First Enchanter Remille's plot succeeded. Starring youngMaric, youngLoghain, youngAdaia, youngRylock and others.
Shadow Of Light: Meredith Stannard and Ellen Rylock do Kirkwall.
The Maiden's Vow: Rilian and Alistair from Ostagar to the Landsmeet...this is for everyone who pointed out that DATM is sorely lacking our favourite Templar :)
Ril's avatar was created by analect. Check out her City Elf gallery, featuring the cast of "Feasting on Dreams" starring the adorable Merien Tabris...
