Author has written 3 stories for Dragon Age.

Hello! Welcome to my profile. :)

I don't really know what to write here to encourage you to read my stories other than... please? I write because I get hooked on an idea and it worms its way into my head and won't let me sleep at night unless I do something about it. So here I am, doing something about it. I am new to fanfiction.net so please go a little easy on me. :)

Oh and please review! I like to know that someone is reading what I write. :)

I rarely get hooked on a video game, but once I do I am truly addicted. My first story here is based on Dragon Age: Origins. I love the RP aspect of the game. I may someday write the story of my Skyrim character as well (or start a new one to write). We'll see what the future brings. For now, I hope you enjoy what I have to offer! :)

Updated 6-13: OK, now I'm hooked on DA2, both the game and the fanfic. I've got a few things running so we will see where it goes. Yes, yes, I'll get back to Skyrim at some point.

Updated 4-14: A Lady's Journal is on hiatus (in case you hadn't noticed) but I hope to increase my posting on On the Run and go back to My Lady's Journal once school is over and I have a bit of time to play the game.

There and Back Again by ElyssaCousland reviews
Sierra is a modern-day business consultant who finds herself suddenly in her favourite video game, Dragon Age. Her actions will change the history of Thedas. But what is a modern-day girl with too much knowledge supposed to do in a world surrounded by magic and monsters? Will cover DA2 and DAI (AU!) also. No descriptive sex - for NSFW version, see There and Back Again - Unedited.

The Wrong Man by YellowDancer reviews
Apostate, abomination, murderer. He was the last person Andraste would have chosen as her Herald. But here he was closing rifts with a mark on his hand, the wrong man for the job, but the only one who could do it. The Maker must have a wicked sense of humor.

Templar Enchanted by Arcane of Thedas reviews
Struck. Bewitched. Enchanted. Those are the words that come to Commander Cullen's mind when he thinks of her. Of the woman who miraculously emerged from the fade at the Conclave. The woman scarred with the Mark. The woman they now call the Herald.

This Flame A Mirror by theherocomplex reviews
If any gods are watching now, he thinks, his thumb tracing idle circles on the inside of Hawke's wrist, they're surely laughing. A mage, and Danarius' little wolf. (In which Fenris watches Hawke, and learns a great deal about himself as well as her.)

The Deserted by Bethadots reviews
King Alistair has left Denerim in the company of pirates on a quest to uncover one of the greatest secrets in the history of Thedas. Meanwhile, his Queen has just found the note he left, and she has no intention of staying home and warming the throne for him... (Takes place alongside The Silent Grove comics, but you don't need to have read them)

The Twilight Watch by Alexandra3 reviews
The battle of Adamant claimed good men and women. Even those that survived did not return unscathed. Was it any wonder that the Inquisitor would be found on the battlements once returning to Skyhold? For the twilight watch is for the restless...

The Things We Carry by KatjaLaRoux reviews
It started at the Deep Roads. There were some slightly flirtatious texts. Then the Chantry in Kirkwall—and Marian Hawke's life—exploded. Quite literally. / Inside, the air felt just as thick, but now instead of smelling like fish and piss like the streets of Kirkwall, it smelled like sweat and smoke. Marian wasn't sure which was worse. (Modern AU. Eventual fHawke/Nathaniel Howe.)

Tempest by Androktones reviews
She wants to yield to him, to the force he keeps leashed for fear...She needs to cast down the mantle of her name, of her office, to cede the consequences and the choices and the -weight- of it all, here, with him. She knows that he does, too. Behind the "fade to black", the Inquisitor and the Commander of her forces give in to what lies between them for the first time. One Shot.

To Mend What's Broken by Lyndotia reviews
AndersxHawke and FenrisxHawke from the perspectives of Anders and Fenris. Inspired by the conversations between the two when Fenris leaves Hawke, who then turns to Anders. Now continued to include the climax of act III and might end up with another chapter or two beyond that.

He Does Not Fear The Night by LiluyeAsala reviews
You knew nothing of love before he had looked you in the eyes for the first time, before you had run your fingers through his damp curls, before he had touched your brambled heart with the hand of a rose.

Vengeance not Justice by alyssacousland reviews
Awakening Anders makes his way to Kirkwall without Justice and tries to fit in. Follow his journey as he meets different companions along the way. Mostly AU, rated M because Anders and others swear a lot and for obvious sexual/sensual innuendos and situations.

Crown for a Sovereign by Taffia reviews
As Ferelden rebuilds following Blight and civil war, a stranger arrives in the court of King Alistair bearing the mark of the Antivan Crows. An assassin by name, an accomplished bard by reputation, he must prove his worth to the Warden-Commander. How he does will catapult Ferelden firmly upon the world stage in a way that not even he could have ever expected.

From the Ashes by tarynista reviews
In the aftermath of the Chantry explosion, sisters Kiara and Amelle Hawke attempt to make sense of an irrevocably changed Kirkwall, and to offer aid to a city that-perhaps-no longer wishes for their help. AU. Hawke/Sebastian and Hawke/Fenris

Touch by inkletter reviews
They were supposed to be free; callused fingers curled around bowstrings, silent footfalls in the underbrush. Through mild summers and harsh winters they would roam, one scarcely seen without the other in tow.

An Assassin's Childhood by maradeux reviews
This is my story about Zevran's childhood and youth in Antiva. It is based on Zevran's dialogues in the game Dragon Age: Origins. Zevran Arainai and Taliesen belong to Bioware. All other characters in this story are my own creation. Rated T just to be on the safe side. (translated from German. I will also publish the original version "Eine mörderische Kindheit" on FF)
