We're deep into that lull between games and it's no secret that things have gotten quiet around here.  I know a lot of us have been branching out.  So... share.  What have you been up to?   Fic in any new fandoms?  Working on any OPs you want to talk about?  Let's chat!

Title: one thing after another (and time for all the works and days of hands)
Author: torch
Rating: NC-17
Pairing: Seneschal Varel/Elyon Andras (Orlesian warden)
Word count: ~284,000 (complete)
Content notes: Highlight to read. Extensive genital scarring described in some detail in chapter 9, and regularly referred to thereafter.
Spoilers: through Awakening

Summary: The arling of Amaranthine has been given over to the Grey Wardens, so naturally the new arl at Vigil's Keep is a warden. Also a mage, an elf, and an Orlesian -- not likely to win anyone's heart. Varel's the seneschal of the Vigil, and he works hard for this new arl, because that's what he does. But the new arl's turning out to be quite a distraction...

So after a really long dry spell (the last time I did a sketch was a couple years ago), I got fired up again, mostly by a) being pissed at this guy who made a mod for Dragon Age to make the already-too-thin female models even thinner, b) Peter Morwood’s discussions about proper armor for women, and c) my hatred for the open-from-neck-to-chest leather armor in the game.

Big images ahoy! )
varelishawt: As you wish, Commander (Default)
[personal profile] varelishawt
Title: Only Honor Gives Duty Meaning
Pairing(s): None
Characters: Seneschal Varel, Ser Cauthrien, Fiona, Mistress Woolsey, Captain Garevel, original and minor characters, Dworkin, Mhairi, Rowland, Ambassador Cera, Nathaniel Howe, Oghren, Herren, Wade
Rating: M (mentions of prostitution and slavery)
Warnings: Graphic depictions of violence
Summary: Rescued after six months spent as a prisoner in the silverite mine by the very man who had put him there, Varel is given an unenviable duty: keeping the arling of Amaranthine together after the death of Arl Howe.

Unsavory elements have crept in to fill the void left by the absence of a liege lord, and there are dark rumors and reports of darkspawn sightings in the remote areas of Amaranthine. With all of the burden and little of the authority he needs to govern the arling, he must do what he can if there is to be anything left for the Grey Wardens.

tl:dr: My take on what went on in Amaranthine before the new Warden-Commander arrived, and my headcanon as to why Varel knew about the Joining, among other Grey Warden secrets. Intended as a framing fic for my DA Kink Meme fills.

At AO3, at ffnet

My DA muse returned after a few years, plopped down her bags, and moved back in like she owns the place. I suppose there's plenty of space.

Title: Red
Authors: [personal profile] jaebility
Pairing: Cullen and Samson
Rating: PG13ish
Summary: A drabble about a (possible) reunion. Spoilers for the mage quest line, but I feel like it's not a huge spoiler? If you've gotten past Haven, this doesn't really spoil anything. Cullen is given control of the Inquisition's latest prisoner. Fun times do not ensue.

(A bleeding, burning reward for Cullen’s faithful service.)

So... anyone else excited for it? :D I'm not exactly sure who's keen on what spoilers, and it's been a while, so I'll try and keep things below a cut...

Here thar be the Inquisition... and maybe dragons... )

I know this comm is kind of dormant, and probably everyone is on Tumblr or something, but I'm looking for a beta reader for a DA fic, and this time it's gotta be someone who's familiar with canon. I'm concerned about characterization.

Anyone interested?

Hello, I'm back to work on things again, so it's time for another spammy post from me. XD

Looks like the last art I posted was the first page of the BBH comic, and the last fic/update I posted about was Idle Desires.

DA art since then:

Pages 2 and 3 of the BBH comic:

The first page (of two) of a standalone short comic:

We're almost there! Only one thing to go!

If you're qualified and interested, as I spelled out in my previous post, you need to take the poll linked in this post. The post also has some further details about the exchange for this year.

I am excited and I hope anyone who voted for this is, too!

(By the way, I really apologize for making two posts on this. I hadn't realized this would require people to respond twice, but if anyone here really is interested, I wouldn't want them to miss out. (Also I admit I really want it in, but that's pretty obvious.))

Remix Redux is running again this year and I’d really like to see Dragon Age included as a qualifying fandom. To do this, I need your help!

How can you help? It’s easy!

1. ) Be interested in doing the exchange! This FAQ is from an previous iteration of the exchange, but most of the info should still be valid.

2.) Qualify to be remixed for Dragon Age! This means you need to have written at least five 500 word stories or seven 100 word stories in that fandom. (And crossovers don’t count.)

3.) Take the poll and comment to this post that your “something else” is Dragon Age!

4.) Profit! (Or, well, if there are enough of us, the fandom should make it in. That’s almost like profit, right?)

Also, spread the word! We’re going to need more than just a couple of us for this to happen.

Anyone else signing up for the new round of [profile] dragonagebb? I really want to write a big A/U fic, but longfic is notoriously my weakness. I'd like to have a reader, not for beta or SPAG, just someone who is looking forward to the next part of the story, who will spur me along a bit. Maybe help me brainstorm. What I wanted to suggest is some kind of equivalent exchange. I figured I'm not the only one who struggles with deadlines and structure, and there sure are a lot of writers in this community. Would anyone like to be longfic-buddies with me?

Is anyone playing the new app, Heroes of Dragon Age?

It covers a lot of history and it's really quite lovely just to see the world again.  Like coming home.

So, whilst perusing the Dragon Age wiki, it stated that currently (930-940) the Dragon Age is euphamistically called the 'three queens age'. Obviously the first two queens means Anora and Celene (though she's not a queen, she's an empress, but hey, details.) But who's the third?

There's only a few actual monarchies in Thedas. (Let's not count those within city-states that are really nothing more than overglorified mayors.)

- Rivain (which is only nominally a monarchy, though they are a strongly matriarchal society, so this one's possibly the third queen)

- Antiva (more of a plutarchy, but has a monarchy, and culturally they no longer accept female rule as per discussed elsewhere in games and such, even though some of the most important Antivan rulers were queens. So, most likely male.)

- Nevarra (ruled by Markus Pentargist, so, that's a dude)

- Orlais, ruled by Empress Celene obviously

- Ferelden, ruled by Cousland+Alistair/Alistair+Anora/Anora/Alister/Anora+Cousland depending upon player's choice, though the supposed meta lore used is that it's ruled by Anora+Alistair.

- Anderfels, a total possibility.

Dragonmod here!

I'm not dead! Expect a bit of maintenance happening behind the scenes, as well as a post I've been meaning to get live for a while coming soon.


For the record, we're no longer considering DLC spoilerrific, especially now that we're in the dry spell between DLCs and the new DA game.

Thanks darlings!


To all our new friends, if you want to join and don't have a Dreamwidth account, go to this thread right now. Request a code, we've got plenty to go around!
