A very, very belated book round up. Spoilers throughout for things I didn’t enjoy or feel need to be spoiled. Shorter than you might think given how long it’s been because I didn’t do much reading while I was playing shell games with my living arrangements.

Title: Sunfall: Kirkwall
Fandom: Dragon Age, Sunfall
Length: ~ 2.7K
Rating: General Audiences
Pairings/Characters: Rowan/Loghain Mac Tir, Fiona/Maric Theirin, Alistair/Female Amell, Leliana/Female Tabris, Anders/Hawke, Fenris/Male Hawke, Female Lavellan/Solas, Anora Mac Tir/Cailan Theirin, Briala/Celene I, Yavanna
Content: fusion fic, Omniscient Narrator, Fatalism, Dystopia, Suicide, Death, lots of death, Reincarnation, death again, screwed up relationships, experimental writing style, Unhappy, Not Funny, pointlessness of immortality
Summary: Fusion with CJ Cherryh's Sunfall. It mostly draws on "The Only Death In The City" subbing in parts of "The General" for some of the squickier weirdness and a touch of "Ice."

The sun had grown dim and faded with time. The world grew tired. The barriers between one life and the next grew thin enough to disappear. Everything has been done before. There is nothing new in the world. No new people. No new choices. And only one way out.

Title: Backing The Right Horse
Fandom: Dragon Age
Length: ~ 3.7K
Rating: General Audiences
Pairings/Characters: Dorian Pavus, Aquinea Thalrassian
Content: referenced m!Lavellan/Dorian, referenced Halward Pavus/Aquinea Thalrassian, referenced adultery, terrible parenting, slavery, gambling, unhappy marriage, Tevinter is Byzantium, I did historical research
Summary: Shamelessly self-indulgent headcanon fic about Dorian and his mother. Takes place after Young and Vibrant though the events of that fic are only important for character development reasons.

Dorian wants to change Tevinter. There's a logical place to start with that but that doesn't mean he has to like it.

Notes: My take on Tevinter is heavily, heavily, heavily inspired by Guy Gavriel Kay's Sarantine Mosaic novels.

I love any excuse to ramble about my headcanons, research, ideas, and interpretations of the game. If you have any interest, give me an excuse.

Title: Young and Vibrant
Fandom: Dragon Age
Length: ~ 800
Rating: Teen
Pairings/Characters: m!Lavellan, Dorian Pavus, Merrill
Content: m!Lavellan/Dorian, Dalish culture headcanon, video game dialogue, spoilers, unreliable narrator, even more video game dialogue
Summary: When I played I was disappointed by how few options there were for my Dalish Inquisitor to express himself without accidentally swearing himself to Andraste, agreeing with Thedosian cultural norms, or letting things go that I wanted to be able to have him argue about.

Notes: If anything about this seems wrong, ignorant, or out of place, then I'd like to discuss it.

Title: Young and Vibrant
Fandom: Dragon Age
Length: ~ 8K
Rating: Teen
Pairings/Characters: m!Lavellan, Mother Giselle, Cassandra Pentaghast, Varric Tethras, Dorian Pavus, Minaeve, Madame Vivienne
Content: implied m!Lavellan/Dorian, morbid thoughts, Dalish culture headcanon, video game dialogue, spoilers, unreliable narrator, even more video game dialogue, discussion of slavery, slavery apologia, discussion of homophobia, religious differences
Summary: When I played I was disappointed by how few options there were for my Dalish Inquisitor to express himself without accidentally swearing himself to Andraste, agreeing with Thedosian cultural norms, or letting things go that I wanted to be able to have him argue about.

Notes: I'm approaching this as someone with a social disability who liked the trouble Merrill had with acclimating to Kirkwall. If anything sticks out to anyone as wrong or ignorant or like I forgot about something important, I'd like to talk about it.

Credit where credit is due: this has a significant amount of dialogue exactly as said in the video game. The Dragon Age writers are really amazing.

Title: Young and Vibrant
Fandom: Dragon Age
Length: ~ 5K
Rating: Teen
Pairings/Characters: m!Lavellan, Mother Giselle, Solas
Content: implied m!Lavellan/Dorian, morbid thoughts, Dalish culture headcanon, video game dialogue, spoilers, unreliable narrator, introspection
Summary: When I played I was disappointed by how few options there were for my Dalish Inquisitor to express himself without accidentally swearing himself to Andraste, agreeing with Thedosian cultural norms, or letting things go that I wanted to be able to have him argue about. This is the story of a Dalish Inquisitor who's an angry, awkward dork and proudly Dalish.

This chapter covers In Your Heart Shall Burn and flashes back to establish his characterization. Future chapters will have decreasing amounts of dialogue directly from the game, more action, and more Dorian romance.

Notes: I'm approaching this as someone with a social disability who liked the trouble Merrill had with acclimating to Kirkwall. If anything sticks out to anyone as wrong or ignorant or like I forgot about something important, I'd like to talk about it.
