Announcing the 2015 edition of the annual Dragon Age Kiss Battle!

What's a Kiss Battle? Loosely based on the Porn Battle format, it's simply a comment prompt fest focused on kisses. No signups are required and anyone can participate! All pairings, characters, and fanwork types are welcome.

Come check it out! If you have any questions, feel free to ask them here or on the initial announcement post. Hope to see you there!

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.

Hey guys! Just thought I'd give a heads up to anyone here who posts their fics to ffnet and haven't yet heard the news:

Ffnet is majorly cracking down on violations of their content ratings policy (which states no MA-rated fics, as well as other things.)

I don't know if the Dragon Age fandom has been hit yet, but I do know that a lot of fics are getting deleted. A friend of mine had two of her Glee fics deleted due to the fact that the f-word was used in the summaries.

Now, I read on their site recently (and can't for the life of me find it now) that they work on an honor system, and don't actively search for violations of the terms of service, and instead rely on other users to report such issues. I'll refrain from going on a rant about that, but it seems awfully strange to me that so many fandoms are getting targeted at the same time.

Anyway, I highly recommend Archive of Our Own as an alternative to posting fics on ffnet. They're having massive slowdowns right now due to the fact that their traffic has more than doubled in the last month, but they've set a target of about 2 weeks to get back on track. You can read more about their performance issues here. They've also got a massive queue of people trying to get accounts (about 18,000 when I checked a few days ago), but I'm hoping that the queue speeds up once they get a more robust server.

In the meantime, I've got about 10 invite codes; if anyone wants one, let me know. All gone, sorry!

Right, you lovely set of maniacs.

Me and [personal profile] nithu  just signed up for Thedas UK, and are hoping to see lots and lots of you there.  So who's going, and who's dithering and who's forgotten all about it, but is interested now it's been mentioned again?  C'mon, we want to meet lots of our friends from on here, have a giggle and get drunk together!

Link is here:  http://www.mwap.co.uk

It's 14th Jan, so if you are dithering, get your skates on!

Hello all! I've recently discovered (and since become horribly addicted to) a wonderful little RP site called The Dragon Age Dressing Room. We're a fairly small and very laid back community, and we're looking for fresh blood!

It's a dressing room, which pretty much means anything goes. You can stick to canon, change it around, or throw it out the window completely! It also means that we have multiples of many of the characters from Origins and DA2. I think we have about 5 different Anderses running around at the moment.

So come check us out and join in on the insanity!

I made this motivational - artwork and all. I'm quite proud of it ^^ so I wanted to share it with you. I think I love the bells most.

But if you'd feel so inclined to take part (on deviantArt) we'd certainly be glad to have you! team-mac-tir.deviantart.com/

A lot of you have probably seen this on Tumblr. I hate Tumblr's interface, and so I rarely use it. My prompt post is on my DW, linked here because I'm only doing DA fic for this.

Feel free to stop by and leave me a prompt for any of the following universes: Zevran/Mad World Alistair's universe, Miravael Tabris/Alistair, or Julian Hawke/Fenris, and I'll come up with something three sentences long. The good thing about this is that I will actually finish something that short!

[community profile] peopleofthedas  have our own promo code for people who don't have a dreamwidth membership?

If you want to join and need a Dreamwidth account, all you have to do is
follow this link.

Thanks to
[personal profile] darkrose for getting the code, and to [personal profile] scarylady for reminding me that a lot of our new members might not know about it, since I don't think it's been mentioned since back before we were learning to walk on two feet, figuratively speaking.

So... no scrambling for invite codes, and no keeping quiet since you don't have a dreamwidth membership. ;)

All that stuff?  I take it back.  It seems our open invite link has expired.  So... let's go old-school and have ourselves a proper "hey, I need a code" thread.  I've got about a dozen to give away.
No being a jerkass and taking a code posted as a reply to someone else's request, either!  That's just all sorts of mean.  there are plenty to go around.

And hey, while I'm here, why not make this a catchall need-a-mod/need-a-code thread.  Want a code to archiveofourown.org?  We got those.  Need a series tag?  Time to ask.

We stand upon the precipice of change. The world fears the inevitable plummet into the abyss. Watch for that moment, and when it comes, do not hesitate to leap. It is only when you fall that you learn whether you can fly.
- Flemeth

As Ferelden begins to rebuild what is nearly lost to The Blight, an age-old conflict is mounting across The Waking Sea -- but when the chaos reaches its peak, no corner of Thedas will remain untouched.

As the day of reckoning approaches, retrace the pivotal moments that changed the fate of the Chantry and the Circle of Magi and set the world on the brink of war.

This is a play-by-post roleplay based on the BioWare game, Dragon Age, most specifically revolving around the plot of Dragon Age 2. It follows Hawke's adventures through Kirkwall as he rises to champion, taking place right after the Hawkes have reached Kirkwall. Both original and canon characters are accepted. These characters will have their own impact upon the plot and may even change its course.

We currently have a few minor canon characters left, and we love OC's. I'm one of your friendly moderators, and everyone's favorite Knight Commander. Feel free to ask any questions. We're an amazingly fun group, the canon characters are incredibly well played, and for only having been open a week or so, we're steamrolling along. So come and take a peek, or hop in the IRC and chat with us. We'd love to have you!

Okay folks, this is the last time you'll hear from Zev and Withiel!

I have now updated the entire series (again), fixing all the continuity issues, and put it to pdf. It has at least three new chapters, and I think I added an average of 1000 words to every chapter save the last three.

Hey, since I'm building my Antiva wiki's and due to some conversations I've had with [personal profile] bellaknoti it seems I'm going to be making a video blog of Sula's recipes.

My plans for recipes are as follows:

Chicken "Antivan" style
Arroz con pollo
Tikka masala
Baba ganoush
Ajo blanco

At the moment, I don't have a working oven, so I can't do anything baked. But if it's something I can 'bake' via the stove top, I'd be happy to do so. So, any thoughts, requests, random questions about spice mixes, and whatnot, please, go ahead and reply. I'm taking requests on this stuff. I could make pasta from scratch also, but my kitchen is also very tiny, so that one would be hard to do.

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!
