This post is so self-indulgent and emo that it should go on my personal journal, but most of the folks on that journal don't know the game and so I'm posting it here. Please feel free to skip.

Spoilers for DA2, specifically the end of the All That Remains quest, with extra bonus TMI )

ETA: I feel better today. Thank you all for the internet hugs, they help!

I had to record this because I love it so much.

And Varric is just THE BEST

Minor (extremely, extremely minor) spoilers from the Exiled Prince DLC.


And my other favorite, mostly because this is totally something I'd say. 

Oh, that Hawke and her awkward attempts at humor

Spoilers for the Act 1 quest "Wayward Son."

Anyone else have a particular favorite dialogue or line?

I saw someone else had said that they'd been havin' issues updatin' stories on, and I was wondering if anyone else has been havin' the same issue? And if so, have they received any explanation?


[personal profile] elysium_fic had a solution for the updating, and [personal profile] scarylady was kind enough to inform me of it. (Just postin' this here so that in case others have an issue updatin' their stories, they got a solution listed directly in a post, rather than placed in comments)
....When you get the error trying to post to, change the word "property" in the URL to "content" and you should be able to post. So sayeth [personal profile] elysium_fic, and there's testamony to it workin' on the updatin' of content, if not addin' new content.

Thanks go to both of ya'll!

....Now if someone can just get the site to actually work like it's supposed to....

EDIT Part Duex:

The content editin' solution doesn't apply to changin' the status of the story or the rating. I just tried to upgrade A Guild-ed Cage, but then received the error message. Bah!

So, on the heels of last nights sobbing, today I learned about David Gaider, a developer at Bioware who's active on the forums and IS SO MUCH AWESOME I CAN'T EVEN.

I'm probably the last one to hear about this, but THIS. THIS.

(Note that there are some spoilers in the linked article and the forum thread)

Bioware Tells Straight Men to "Get Over" Being Hit on By Gay Men in "Dragon Age 2"

I recovered my password just so I could send him a DM thanking him.

Fifty Chapters! *is scared by how big this story turned out to be*. I tried to get you some smut to celebrate, but my characters were not co-operative :( So I can offer only plot, as per usual. I do plot.

Much love as always to [personal profile] bellaknoti the Comma Fairy, who kindly tidies up my chapters.

Link to the beginning, for anyone joining us for the first time:

Trouble & Strife: Chapter Fifty
Characters: today we have Alistair, Maddy, Philippe, Eamon, Loopy Leanna, Arl Wulff, Empress Celene, Divine Beatrix III, Valendrian and Shianni.

This chapter: Alistair's plans take the Hahren by complete surprise. Meanwhile, in Val Royeaux, the Divine has received an unwelcome letter from King Bhelen.

Title: The Dreams Where You Fall
Rating: ESRB Rating of M for Mature
Summary: They built this city on rock and roll. And now it's crumbling in the face of heathens, fanatics, and serial killers.
Crit: Yes, please. By all means! Especially on my Varric&Cassandra scenes, because I have developed this horrible paranoia about my Cassandra.
Notes: Original summary was, "They built this city on rock and roll. Too bad the Qunari want them all off the lawn."
WARNINGS: Major, major spoilers for DA2 Act 2. Eventual major character death. Violence everywhere.

zero: the black powder clung
Summary: Varric, Cassandra, and where Hawke's dealings with the Qunari began. Also the Arishok's sense of humor and whether or not having one meant he was crazy.
Link: Dreamwidth | AO3 Mirror

one: courtesy and grace
Summary: Adder halfway tuned him out. City was a tinderbox, the Qunari were driving everyone crazy, they danced on the edge of the abyss. She'd heard it all before.

Grey Wardens are essentially just badass lemmings.

So [personal profile] lenna_nightrunner  and I need some Riordan background for VLS'v, but neither of us have read or own the books, which I understand his backstory is in? (Wow, that sentence is a nightmare.) I have a basic story for him in my head, but I don't know what's canon and what's been assimilated from AU fic, so I was wondering if anyone knew for sure some answers to the following questions:

1) How did he join?
2) Any love life stuff happen?

Thank you, darlings.

So he's not in the books. We get to make it up as we go then, right? Right? Eeee.

Old Roads

Chapter Eleven tells a secret, shows its hand, and then suffers the first of what will be many, many arrivals. It goes by Difficult as the Silence After. (and on AO3. Full text also below the cut.) Warning: references to rape. Chapter is SFW; story overall is rated M.

Title: Old Roads: Pitiless Games
Rating: M (for the sexytimez, and for occasional graphic violence)
PC: Amell
Word Count: ~100k, ~11k this chapter
Spoilers: At this point, it's not so much spoilers as it might not make any sense if you haven't played through Origins/Awakening...
Summary: Amaranthine is destroyed, and Warden Amell travels to Vigil’s Keep to take command. But one either must play the game of politics or be used as a pawn, and like it or not, every last one of Kathil’s demons are about to come home to roost... Amell/Zevran/Cullen, post-Awakening, multiple viewpoints, Part 5 of Old Roads.

I know lots of things I don't want to know, Jowan. I'm good at it. )

And I'm sitting next to a guy who just named his Hawke in Ethan Hawke... -le sigh-
Anyway...Oh, Maker... I am so sorry, Anders...You're not even real and I still feel awful about this...
Response to [ profile] akari_hoshi 's When Nouns Verb prompt post. I got "Anders discovers he has Adonis DNA."

Oh, Andraste's Shiny Hiney! )

March 26th

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!
