Aithne's Old Roads Omnibus and my Christmas Kindle has inspired me to channel my inner librarian (hopefully to become an outer librarian in the next few years!) and start up our own library of e-books.

So. This is how this will work.

Email us (peopleofthedas@gmail.com) with your e-book cover and an e-reader copy of your completed fic (.mobi or epub or both if you have them) and I will compile them and put them up on a new mediafire account for general download. Then I'll make a master post here with pretty pictures of all your covers and a link to the books for people to download!

I'd like for this to be completed fics only, if that's ok, simply because I'd have to take down each file and put it back up again each time a fic is updated. On the library master post I will put:

A Book Cover: that you make, which should include Title, Author etc. If you have (like me) made book covers out of commissioned or gifted fanart, make sure you credit the artist as well. ON THAT NOTE, make sure you have PERMISSION from the artist to use ANY artwork as a cover, if it isn't your own. 
A Blurb: Short abstract or extract from the story so people have some idea of what it is about.
Your contact details: (should you want them, tumblr, ff.net, dreamwidth journal or your email, or all of them) so that people can contact you and leave reviews)
A link: to the mediafire download.

ALTERNATIVELY: You can just provide me with a cover and a link to your Archive of Our Own version of the completed fic, and people can simply download their own version from that site! However, some people don't use/haven't been invited to/don't want their stuff up on Archive of Our Own, which is why I'm offering the other option.

Depending on how many fics we get I'll organise them by author/genre etc (obviously I won't have to do that until we have more than one or two!)

If you're having trouble converting to e-reader format, you can ask me to do it (best way to do that is to have it posted on AO3, since I can just click the download button and work from there with my version of calibre).

A few things:

NATURALLY all work that you submit belongs to you and you alone. I will not alter any files I have been given before I put them onsite, unless you have given me express permission to convert files you give me to e-book format.

If at any stage you wish your work to be taken down, simply inform me and I will do so immediately.

If you prefer, you can host the book on your own file share site and simply give me the link. It'll be up to you to make sure you have all the versions necessary and maintain the website that is hosting it.

OH EDITED TO ADD: If you email us your fic, please put a comment here telling me. I'll check the email once a day any way, but just in case my brain fails it would be good to have another reminder :D.

Ironically, given that it isn't at all my pairing of choice, two of these are Fenris/Anders:

Avete Vos
Fenris/Anders, NSFW
AU where Fenris is a gladiator. He's still a slave, but he has enough status to have slaves of his own, one of whom is a snarky apostate from Ferelden. The authors did their research on the Roman Empire, which makes my little history geek heart beat faster. WIP that hasn't been updated in a while.

Fenris/Anders, NSFW
Series that features an Anders I can actually connect with Awakening Anders, and a brilliantly-written Fenris. It's best read in order, which is why I linked to AO3.

A Long Far Way From Home
Series of drabbles and ficlets based on Connor Guerrin (post-Origins) and Feynriel (post-"Night Terrors") meeting as students and outsiders in the Tevinter Imperium. The notes on each piece are worth reading as much as the stories themselves.

okay so... i found this and i just... i can't stop laughing.

it's a spoof on poorly-written fanfic, involving anders, hawke, some darkspawn, and a motorcycle.


Dragon Age: Full Life Consequences

it's safe for work, unless you work at one of those places where laughing a lot gets you in trouble...

So I was playing a meme game on deviantART (link to meme post here) in which the player blindly writes down 12 DA character names, numbered 1 through 12, and then has to plug those names into a series of pairing questions (at which the player can look ONLY AFTER writing down the names --no fair going back and changing them!). So for example, one of the questions was "Would #2 and #6 make a good couple?" And my #2 and #6 were Isabela and Cauthrien, so my answer was "One badass couple indeed." Etc. But there were two other pairings that really sparked the interest of both myself and the OP of this meme, except we have too much on our plates and are n00bs at slash/crack so we humbly request you, the People of Thedas, to assist us in answering these two burning questions:

A. What kind of plot device would you use if you wanted #4 (Alistair) to deflower #1 (Cullen)?

B. Would #11 (Zevran) shag #9 (Anora)? Drunk or sober?

Please help us. Actually, neither the meme OP nor I can believe that there isn't already Alistair/Cullen slash out there, but if there is, it isn't tagged properly, because I can't find it. Cookies and blessings and whatever we can reciprocate if you can right this wrong, and/or think of something appropriately delicious for Zev/Anora.

And oh yeah, feel free to tackle Cauthrien/Isabela too --if you dare. :)

Over on kmeme there's a prompt, and I want it filled. It's not my prompt, I'm already doing a super dark autofill of mine. No, but this one, this one needs to be done. I've got too many damn things on my plate, I don't need this on my head too. Please, please, someone do this or I may go REALLY insane.


Prompt is as follows:

....F!Warden wakes up disoriented on a ship. Zevran faked her death and kidnapped her instead of losing her to duty.

Angry sex happens.

Hiya all.

I'd like to recommend a really good fic I found.  When people set an alert or favourite for my stories on FF I like to go for a nosy around, see what kind of people I've attracted and what else they like.  I found this on someone's favourite list and it's a lovely, lovely DA2 fic.  And has the advantage of being Hawke/Varric, which makes a nice change.

Title:  Happily Ever After With Goats
Author: estuesday
Pairing: previous Hawke/Anders, future Hawke/Varric
Rating: T
Summary:  (this is the author's summary from FF) The tale Varric told the Seekers wasn't the end of their story. From Orlais to Antiva, the high seas to an isolated farm, Hawke has a long way left to go. One can only hope the goats survive her passage.

With the release of DA2, the Dragon Age Kink Meme on LJ has exploded. At time of writing, the two DA2 threads have almost 7,000 comments. Even more than Origins, DA2 is made for fanworks, and especially for writers; the time skips create spaces in the narrative that are begging to be filled.

Get your minds out of the gutter, you pervs. You're blocking my periscope.

A few kmeme fills have caught my eye. This is by no means a comprehensive list, and aside from my preference for Team Fenris, there's no real theme to them.

Recolicious (and spoileriffic)! )

Hi! :) I don't know if introductions are standard practice so I won't make this JUST an intro, but I felt like I should at least greet the community. You all seem like you're very close already from your posts and comments. I admit I'm a little forum shy. I haven't been an active member of a fandom community since, god, years. It's been years. It makes me feel old thinking about it! Anyway, I'm [personal profile] sophisted , hello!  Here's to trying to revoke my lurker license!  Wow, I am unaccountably nervous to actually be posting here!  How sad! :P  Someone take the exclamation button away from me!

I finished DA2 yesterday.  F!Hawke mage, Fenris fondler, firmly in the "both sides are crazy" corner, despite Orsino being MOSTLY a level-headed character.  I have a confession.  It's pretty sad and I don't know what it says about me, but...

I would also like to ask if there are any communities devoted to Dragon Age fic prompts?  Or if any of you have some prompts you'd like to see at least given a schoolyard try?  I will do anything except write Anders romance as a healthy relationship!  Hah, sorry.  Bit bitter still.  I am trying to get back into the swing of writing and I loved this game so much that I've been kind of looking for excuses to obsess over it as much as I have been.  But I am unfortunately bad at coming up with ideas for fan-type things.

I thought that recently I saw a fic with a title to the effect of "## days in Someplace" (like, "30 Days in Highever" or "90 Days in Denerim" or something like that.)

But I can't find it now, and I'm not even sure it exists. It's possible I saw it in another fandom, but I just want to make certain.

Does anyone recall seeing anything like this recently?

EDIT: I still can't find the thing, despite having searched everywhere I can imagine I might have seen it. If anyone comes across it, please let me know, because I have a new mini-series I'm posting called "Sixty Days in Jader" and I don't want to be accused of copping someone else's title.

You know, I don't think I've yet read a fic where Zevran sides with Taliesen. Has anyone read one they would recommend? I'm not sure I could write such a thing...

Hiya, I read quite a few fanfics, but I'd like to recommend this one to you all, while it's still fairly new (Chapter 3).  I dunno about you lot, but I find it less intimidating than being offered something that is already 40 chapters or more.

Title: As the Crow Flies
Author: Nightsfury
Rating: T

I don't have a decent author's summary to offer you, as I can't find one.  The fic is about Zevran's training from the age of about fifteen (a subject of interest to lots of us, I suspect) and so far it's looking like mightily good stuff.

Link to it on FF is here: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6550932/1/As_the_Crow_Flies

For all those Varel and Nathaniel fans out there, I am giving mad kudos to CCbug and lisakodysam's collaboration fic, Nobility Has Another Meaning.

Not only does it explore Varel's background and Nathaniel's childhood twenty years before the Fifth Blight, it also delves into the past of Arl Rendon Howe's wife, the arlessa of Amaranthine, who is already portrayed in the first chapter as a strong woman who is not a stereotypical woman warrior, as per the usual you find in a fantasy setting. This is a character we hardly see in the game or in fanfiction, and I think you will all find her very interesting indeed.

It is extremely well written, one of the true gems of FF.net, and sets up excellent tension and shows glimpses of very intriguing premises right there in the first chapter.

Nobility Has Another Meaning
Nathaniel/Varel (not a slashfic, I have a personal guarantee from one of the writers)
Rating: T to M
Chapters: Ongoing
Complete? Not yet
Summary: Long before the Blight, Robert Varel became Seneschal of Vigil's Keep. Power, love, jealousy, and hate put Varel at the mercy of a mad Arl Howe-can Varel keep his promise to protect those within? What happens when Nathaniel Howe returns?

I see alot of neglected prompts at the Tent Party. How about a Fillathon after the Holidays when people are not as busy?

Hi! I was wondering if you would be making your stories available to be read again at some point. I am a big fan and was really sad at not being able to read about maeve, anders, kailian, loghain and the rest of the crew. :(

I really really miss ur stories, like crack :(

Here's a little tutorial on how we're going to handle fic and art requests and recommendations. By 'requests,' I don't mean requests for commissions or things of that nature. I mean a request for fanfiction or art recommendations from the rest of the community. A recommendation is what it sounds like: if you like a fic or a piece of art, recommend it to the community. Not only will this give us a lot of great fics to read and art to view, but it will also help promote the Dragon Age fandom in general.

Here is an example of a request:

Does anyone know of any good multi-chaptered M/MA/NC-17-rated fanfiction with an Alistair/f!Mahariel pairing? Other pairings are welcome as long as this is the main one. Drama is good but I prefer humor to be peppered in, as I think that this makes stories seem more realistic.

By the way, I would be more than happy to have that request fulfilled!

Here is an example of a recommendation:

Are you a fan of Sten? Are you open to the idea of being convinced to like Sten? Either way, I'd highly recommend
[personal profile] twist_shimmy 's "Strangers With Cookies." I really like it because she manages to portray Sten in a way that makes him an introspective, humorous, and relatable character. I didn't really like him before I read her fic, but now I feel like I understand him a lot better. Here is the fic information according to [personal profile] twist_shimmy 's journal:
Strangers With Cookies
Sten/f!Mahariel, Alistair/Leliana
Rating: M
Chapters: Eighteen + Epilogue
Complete? Y!
Summary: "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." Sten and Adhara, a Dalish Warden, have little in common but disdain for the human race. But for two people thrown into the midst of Fereldan politics, this becomes a basis for friendship. Whether or not their mutual respect of one another will be enough to keep them sane is anyone's guess....
A link to Strangers With Cookies can be found on twist_shimmy's LiveJournal page.

NOTE: If for any reason an artist or author requests that your recommendation be modified or removed, you must do so immediately. Though this is unlikely, we want to protect the rights and respect the wishes of these valued contributors to our fandom.

As always, please let me or twist_shimmy know if you have any questions/comments/suggestions/objections, etc.

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!


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!
