Requests and Recommendations

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.

I would love to see something where he takes her virginity as they travel to Ostagar. Are there any stories that I missed that one could recommend?

See I am a complete moron

Nevermind. Figured it out. I subscribed.
