Author has written 6 stories for Dragon Age.

I've played Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age II obsessively, until the characters have gotten inside my head and won't get out. I also have a mostly-Dragon-Age-based Tumblr, under the name genginger. Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to read my stuff, and double thanks and internet cookies to those who review! All feedback is welcome.

Aftershocks -- A post-blight story. Nessa Cousland and Zevran deal with the aftermath of the war while trying to keep Anora on the throne of Ferelden. Rated M, because... Zevran, though the first 10 chapters could easily be rated T. [A million thanks to hot-elf, without whom this story would still be languishing half-finished in a folder somewhere.]

Dagger's Touch (complete) -- The Hawke/Fenris romance in DA2 leaves quite a lot open to interpretation, as you can see when you peruse the stories on this site. This is a tale from my rogue f!Hawke's perspective. The hawk and the wolf have more in common than they realize - including a fear of letting anyone get too close. A million thanks to my fantastic beta Deagh, who did wonders to tame my comma obsession. Any errors you may find fall strictly on my own head.

4/18/12: I updated the story rating to M as of chapter 20 -- there's nothing here you don't see in the game if you play through the romance, but the game itself is rated M.

Beware of Sisters Bearing Gifts (one shot, complete) -- My very first published story, one-off, implied f!Hawke/Fenris. This is a scene cut from my longer tale when the characters evolved and it didn't really make sense anymore. They say to kill your darlings, but I had such a fun time writing this I couldn't bear to toss it away.

Shards (in progress, back burner) -- Snapshots from my Origins City Elf playthrough. I tried hard to actually roleplay this and make some different choices... and then it started to run away from me. It started out as a full gameplay story, but I'm shifting the focus to between-the-missions and trying to write my own dialogue (for the most part). This is actually on my back burner so updates will be slow, but I thought I'd post what I had so far while I work on something else.

Vanity (one shot, complete) -- A post-battle scene for f!Cousland and Zevran. Will eventually be part of a longer story, but stands fine on its own. A preview for Aftershocks.

The Keening Blade by Arsinoe de Blassenville reviews
She hesitated-"Mostly, I couldn't kill you, knowing that I cheated. At the Landsmeet. Our duel." There was a heavy silence. Loghain said slowly, "You do realize that I am holding a naked sword at this very moment?" M for sound reasons.

Reunion by MsBarrows reviews
Written for a prompt on the kink meme: "Epilogue where Alistair leaves Ferelden after Loghain is spared - Alistair becomes a BAMF mercenary; a few years down the road he and Zevran cross paths again." Mature for M/M sex.

The Drunkard by Rose Tinted Contact Lenses reviews
Life as a barmaid in the Hanged Man is odd enough without men with swords and stories propping up the bar. However, she can't help but wonder exactly who the new customer is... Some violence.

Broken Pieces reviews
The last time she'd seen Sebastian Vale, he had threatened to raze Kirkwall to the ground. He had left in a rage, to retake Starkhaven at last. It did not look as though he had succeeded. / Post DA2. Adventure/friendship/romance/eventual polyamory. / Hawke and Fenris are in hiding when they're discovered by an old friend.

Shards reviews
Surrounded by humans, darkspawn, and dragons, what's an elf to do? Besides get angry, of course... Snapshots from Origins, city elf origin. Kallian/Zevran with some wibbles over Alistair. This is a back burner project; I'm not sure I will ever finish it. Sorry.

Vanity reviews
Nessa Cousland and Zevran have gotten into a spot of trouble after an otherwise ordinary fight. Rated T for poison and because Zevran is... well, Zevran. One off, though a version of this scene will appear in Aftershocks.

Hawke is used to a life on the run. Maybe that's why she's so drawn to a certain elf from Tevinter? F!Hawke/Fenris.

A snapshot from late in Act 2. Hawke dips a little too far into the Invisible Sister's stash of Antivan brandy and starts feeling sorry for herself. Implied Hawke/Fenris. Rated T for the drinking.
