Author has written 5 stories for Dragon Age.

YOU HAVE MY THANKS...for reading the I Shall Endure series. I always grin when I see hits on the completed stories. Thanks for reviews of those.

Hope you will join Lys and Ali in Book 3.

Thanks to maeves-child for her lovely portrait of Lys at 20 just before the events of the game which I use as my Avatar and as the cover image for Book 3. A younger, happier Lys appears as the cover image for I Shall Endure Book 2: In Plain Sight - Lys by Charlotte/Iheartapostates. Chenria created the lovely cover image for I Shall Endure Book 1: Brief Shining Moments. My kids at 10 on the tower in Redcliffe. Thanks to these three ridiculously awesome artists.

SPOILERS: I refer to and base my stories on information from the games, the novels, the table top RPG series and the comics. If you haven't played or read, beware, here be spoilers.

DISCLAIMER: The stories are based on Intellectual Property (IP) which BioWare (TM) and EA (TM) own.

MY STORIES: Melysande is my f/HumanNoble OC. When I began writing a post-Blight story about her, I spent more time creating her backstory. I accumulated more and more headcanon and the pre-blight and Blight stories began to write themselves. Although I do include major canon events, the stories are canon divergent. I hope to continue Melysande’s story into the Thaw and beyond, but I’ll stick to one a few stories at a time for now.

The divergent stories explore Melysande's character development and her relationships with friends (some from the game & some I make up), family and particularly Alistair and Loghain.

I am an unabashed Alistair fan, at least the Alistair of my imagination. Loghain, however, may be the most intriguing character in the DAO universe and I'm a fan of his as well. I actually - confession time - have his action figure staring at me as I write. Talk about muses. My stories explore both characters and their relationship with each other and my f/Cousland.

I SHALL ENDURE SERIES
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light.
I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
Canticle of Trials 1:10

(Complete) Book 1. BRIEF SHINING MOMENTS: Divergent pre-Blight story of Melysande's childhood and coming of age, with some background on how the Couslands got to Thedas in the first place centuries ago Chenria created the portrait of Lys and Ali.
Don't let it be forgot
That once there was a spot
For one brief shining moment…
That was Ferelden
Ruled by King Maric the Savior
Camelot – Lerner and Lowe

(Complete) Book 2. IN PLAIN SIGHT: Divergent Blight tale Lys by Charlotte/Iheartapostates

(In Progress) Book 3. A SONG IN THE STILLNESS: AU/Divergent post-Blight tale. maeves-child created the lovely portrait of Lys at 20.
In the long hours of the night
When hope has abandoned me
I shall see the stars and know
Your light remains
I have heard the sound
A song in the stillness
The echo of your voice…Trials 1: Hymns:

ABOUT ME: I'm a retired Project Manager, who now has the time to indulge old interests and try new ones. I've always thought of 'what ifs' and 'whys' as I read or gamed. This is my first foray into actually putting the thoughts into words on the page/screen and weaving the 'what if' & why threads into a story.

I'll read almost anything, even the OED, but I love fantasy (LOTR, Kate Elliot, GRR Martin, etc.), Sci/Fi (Dune, Bradbury, Hyperion, etc.) and the nexus where they overlap. I read lots of history - especially medieval Wales, England and Scotland and historical fiction (Dorothy Dunnett, S.K.Penman, Bernard Cornwell, Mary Stewart, Mary Renault, etc.) and the occasional mystery. I'm also a fiber fanatic - I weave, spin, and knit. I love getting outside to enjoy the four seasons we experience every year in northern New England
