Fandom: Dragon Age 2
Character/Pairings: Fenris, Hawke, Hawke/Fenris, Fenris/Hawke
Length: @ 1300 words
Summary: A gift, an accusation, an interlude. Hawke challenges Fenris to move beyond the slave mentality.
At first it seemed that Fenris would take the gift – he'd recognized it at once, mentioned that it was considered a sign of esteem, even shown Hawke its hidden golden glow – but as always the topic circled back to Danarius.
Note: First story for this fandom, written for my fandom_helps bidder wook77 . Neither the gender nor the class of this Hawke are specified.
(and it seemed odd to use all 4 Hawke tags, so I didn't use any. :p)
Fandom: Dragon Age II
Characters: Marian Hawke/Cullen

(Assumes Cullen and Marian Hawke became secretive, committed lovers sometime after Hawke was declared Champion of Kirkwall.

Rating: Rated: K
Summary: Just a little drabble explaining the origins of how that drawing of
Ser Pounce got into that old textbook the Warden finds in Witch Hunt.
Characters: Anders, Finn, obligatory douche templar, Enchanter Sweeney
I am the Lord of the Pounce said he.
Lord of Pounce is a song by Marc Gunn. It's rather adorable. Imagine this as the horrible lute song Anders in DA2 would play horribly.
Characters: Cullen, Isabela
Summary: Cullen gets an unexpected late night visitor and a story. He's not quite sure what to make of either. Isabela has a bit of fun tormenting the poor Knight-Captain with her latest friend-fiction.

Author's Note: Here is my entry for the Dragon Age: Asunder creative writing contest! The title is from an Anais Nin quote “We don’t see things as they are. We see them as we are.” There are no warnings for this story. Congratulations to all the winners. Frankly I’m more than a little astounded to be in the august company of the top twenty. I hope that my contribution lives up to it! Many thanks to aithne and solitae for the betas!

Now that that the Asunder Writing Challenge is finished, I feel safe posting my entry. Gratz to PoT's Scarylady for getting in the top 5!

Rating: suitable for all, I think.
For six generations the Laurentius family bred true; mage marrying mage to create a line of powerful Magisters. In Tevinter high society, if one is not a mage, then one is a liability, at the mercy of predatory Magisters and their… pets.
At fifteen, Livia Laurentius - daughter of Magister Lucretius and his powerful wife Cornelia - has demonstrated not a single spark of magic. Her future hangs in the balance; her parents are a hairsbreadth from sending her to Orlais for her own safety.
Lucretius sees no alternative, but Cornelia has an audacious idea.
It’s time for drastic measures.
EDITED SOME HOURS LATER: I made the top five! Woohoo!!!
EDITED AGAIN NEXT DAY: FF have now got their act together and the story link should be working again. Sorry to mess you all around!

Author's Note: Secret Swooper gift for spirit_dog! One of her requests was Mahariel/Merrill f!slash. I've never actually written any f!slash at all, despite my interest in it. And I couldn't quite get these two to go full smut. But I hope you like it anyway!
Many thanks to solitae, captainwolfos and aithne for the betas!
( Sylaise's Lament )
Disclaimer: DAO is owned by BioWare, Laran is owned by Zevran or vice versa, or, well, Croaky. Mutual symbiotic ownage?
Summary: It was the night before Saturnalia, and all through the camp, all was silent...all was well.
AN: Croaky/Teapirate has a birthday, as we all do. It is just that Croaky’s lands on an...awkward day. While people are giving season’s greetings and all that, Croaky is like “Yeah, okay...um...hello? Birthday? Anyone?” So, I’m totally trying to do something about that, even a little thing like this. Because, frankly? No one deserves that poo end of the stick.
Also, I thought putting Zev’s bday on the day before Saturnalia would be awesome as the poor man never had a present in his life, it would also be kinda...poignant that he receives a ‘replacement’ to the connection to his mother on his birthday - also bein’ the anniversary of his mom’s death - but in a Totally Non Depressing Way. Apropos.
Working on the Secret Santa story also, kicking it into submission. Blarg.

Title: Solace and Solitude
Spoilers: Through "All That Remains"
Notes: New Hawke, new LI, new take on this scene. Fenris considers how to best offer his condolences.
On DW / On LJ / On AO3
Characters: Warden!Alistair, Warden!Carver
Spoilers: Through the end of Act Two
Notes: Inspired by meeting Carver again, and by Carver Week on Tumblr. I've fallen so hard for Carver. Maybe it's being the older sister of a snarky younger brother, but I just love him, and his dynamic with my f!Hawke -- they're mostly rivals, but they care a great deal as well. I'm really looking forward to running him through Legacy.
On Tumblr / On AO3

Seasons Greetings to feckless_muse , who asked for 'something a little off beat fluffy and/or steamy'.
Now, usually I'm up with the steamy, but this time it was fluff that invaded my brain. I do hope you like it! Love and hugs as always to the Comma Fairy, bellaknoti , for being my beta.
