(So, this is the continuation of my Warden’s story, after the events of Dragon Age II and before Dragon Age: Inquisition; it features guest appearances by [livejournal.com profile] sakuratsukikage's Mahariel, Arelan, who is Lyna's younger brother in this 'verse. The title comes from Leaves of Grass171. France, the 18th year of These States, by Walt Whitman.)

Pale, silent, stern, what could I say to that long-accrued retribution?
Could I wish humanity different?
Could I wish the people made of wood and stone?
Or that there be no justice in destiny or time?

Title: Vir Lath Sa'vunin (We Love One More Day)
Rating: T
Authors: [personal profile] twist_shimmy and [personal profile] lenna_nightrunner
Summary: When their parents died, Tesni Mahariel was left to raise her brother Caerwyn with the help of the rest of their clan. True to their penchant for getting into trouble, Caerwyn and Tamlen went hunting one day and ran afoul of amirror, of all things. The next thing Tesni knew, Caerwyn had been recruited by the Grey Wardens. As if she’d let someshemlen just take her brother away! Determined to keep Caerwyn safe, Tesni goes after them, and antics ensue. She’ll stop the Blight to protect her family, Caerwyn will help--grumbling all the while--and Alistair will do his best to bond with his tattooed and bristly new brethren. When all is said and done, the blurred lines between friendship and blood bonds will draw them down a path that will change all three of them forever.

In which the Lady sees what our Wardens have not.

In addition, she has kindly poked Dulsanaya with her Zevran from A Murder of Crows at Live Journal's DASdressing Room. Between her and [personal profile] ashfae's Hawke and Alistair, I am beginning to understand this silver-haired elf who dropped nearly fully formed into my lap. Sometimes Duls kicks me in the shins and runs off and I have to sit down and wrap my head around something that isn't me...foreign. She forgives me and crawls back into my lap, pressing her mind to mine with her strange logic and far seeing eyes and I do my best to see into her. I love this vallaslin vined, sun-bronzed creature and hope that I can do her justice.

In which the chapter art pretty much says it all.


Okay so we know we swore to update every Tuesday, and we, uh, didn't last week. But there were extenuating circumstances, we swear! When you have a buffer and you still don't have enough time to post? That's a Bad Week.

Special thanks to [personal profile] cave_fatuam for her incredible art. Neither of us can properly convey how much we love it and to what extreme extent we are certain that we can never repay her. Infinite <3s, Bef!

Admittedly, the idea for this started out as a bit of a joke. Let's put vampires in the DA universe, haha. But what if it was the taint? The mythology's already there - the fact that humans/elves/dwarves can contract it, the fact that the Wardens themselves will one day turn...

I dunno, really... but so far it's fun!

Title: Tainted, Prologue & Chapter 1

Summary: When Tamlen attacked the companions' camp, Tia Mahariel found herself unable to stop him. It was a mistake that cost her everyone she loved. They walk the world now as tainted creatures and Tia has sworn - along with Alistair - to hunt them down. For they are Grey Wardens, and it's only a matter of time before the taint takes them too.

Darkspawn have always been mindless creatures, but those who had minds of their own before... you'd hope they'd become themselves again. And you'd be wrong. )

We're baaaaaaack. That's right! From here on out, Vir Lath Sa'vunin is resuming updates every Tuesday until it concludes! (Either that, or until Shimmy dies. Whichever comes first. Given how busy my job has kept me, it could go either way) Sorry about the hiatus, darlings, but do we have a killer arc for you to come back to.

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!
