[personal profile] ossobuco's journal is mostly friends-only! Occasional posts such as fanfic and other writing are public, but pretty much everything else will be friends-locked.

ossobuco: Boss Lena McCarroll from Saints Row 3 (lena phone)
I KEPT DOING THE THING. Another fic from this Overwatch AU 'verse with [personal profile] renshai. This one gives some more of Lena's backstory, plus how she actually, y'know, ends up back with new!Overwatch in the first place.

Fandom: Overwatch (mostly)
Characters in this bit: Lena McCarroll, Jack Morrison
Word count: 2630
Rating: Soft teen for swearing and punching

Summary: Mercenary company boss (and former Overwatch brat) Lena McCarroll is unexpectedly, and unintentionally, rescued from police custody.

Also here @ AO3, here @ tumblr.

Well, thought Lena McCarroll, handcuffed in the back of the Stilwater PD armored van, the Saints are not likely to bail me out of this one.

It was her own stupid fault )

ossobuco: Boss Lena McCarroll from Saints Row 3 (lena phone)
I DID THE THING?? This is the Overwatch AU that I have with [personal profile] renshai for our Saints Row bosses, because we're huge fucking nerds. The 'verse centers on former Overwatch brats Lena McCarroll and Max Eshkibog, daughters of decorated Blackwatch operatives Maddie McCarroll and Lilah Eshkibog. After their moms are reported killed in action, the girls are sent away to a US Marines boot camp and a Canadian military academy, respectively. The Recall happens when they're about 24-25.

Fandom: Overwatch, mostly
Characters in this bit: Lena McCarroll, Ana Amari
Word count: 1608
Rating: Very soft teen for lots of swearing and abandonment issues

Summary: Lena is trying and failing to get comfortable in New Overwatch (TM), and gets her second visit from a ghost.

The sun is just rising, orange light filling the cracks in the windows of the new Overwatch’s HQ, or more accurately, its hide-out. Likely abandoned since shortly after the Omnic crisis, it’s only marginally worse than the Saints’ base of operations, low-profile and generally low-tech except for the few amenities that Winston has managed to repair or install himself. The old dormitory’s doors don’t lock, and the beds are worse than the granite slab of a mattress she’d had in boot camp. There’s a kitchenette with an unreliable oven and no dishwasher, and the only furniture in the adjacent rec room is Winston’s tire swing and a musty couch with a persistent odor of stale coffee.

And thank fuck for coffee )

(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 is from Leaves of Grass, 171. France, the 18th year of These States, by Walt Whitman.)

Fandom: Dragon Age (post-DAII, pre-Inquisition)
Characters: Lyna Mahariel/Alistair, Arelan Mahariel/Zevran, Hawke, Anders, other minor characters
Chapter word count: 2517
Chapter rating: G

Summary: Kirkwall’s Chantry lies in ruins, and mages across Thedas rise against their oppressors. How long can the Fereldan Grey Wardens remain neutral? And to where has the Champion of Kirkwall disappeared?

Also here @ AO3, here @ tumblr.

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?

Posted a while back on tumblr, finally posted here/on AO3 after totally failing to edit (just made a few tiny changes). Pretty wholly an exercise in non-human perspective, and also the result of lots of robot feelings.

Fandom: Mass Effect (2)
Characters: Commander Shepard, Legion, Tali'zorah
Word Count: 1343
Rating: T for some wound depiction

Shepard-Commander is organic, and the geth consider this unfortunate )

(I posted this on Tumblr ages ago, but I never got around to putting it on AO3 or here. Not that it's a big deal, because it's short and entirely silly and I hopelessly ship my OCs with other people's OCs. Most importantly, I'm not sorry.)

Fandom: Dragon Age
Characters: Lyna Mahariel, Taliesin Mahariel, Radha
Word Count: 560

(Also on AO3 here.)

It had always been a more-or-less innocent game between them )

(Well, I've only been working on this for about nine months--that might be a record for me. Grazie mille to [personal profile] backinblack who so kindly looked it over, fixed the most troublesome spots, and provided much reassurance.)

Summary: What to do with King Cailan's armor recovered from Ostagar? Alistair and Mahariel discuss.

'But it's King Cailan's,' Alistair said hesitantly. )

Characters: Alistair/Lyna Mahariel
Rating: G
Summary: The answer to the question of when Alistair first realized he was attracted to Lyna. The prodigiously self-indulgent answer.

Alistair caught himself watching Lyna as they walked—more than that, he realized, he couldn't take his eyes from her. )

Welcome to [personal profile] ossobuco/[livejournal.com profile] peacebone's Dragon Age blogging project! This post will be used to index all of the entries written for this project in chronological order, though they can also be found by using the "dragon age" or related tags in this journal.

I started playing Dragon Age: Origins in May of 2011 due to the influence of a good friend, who then suggested that I blog my experiences. The blogging began as mostly excited capslock spamming with occasional serious commentary on my character and the game world, but has evolved to be a good deal wordier, somewhat more in-character, and (I hope) slightly more sophisticated. My current ambition is to play through and blog about all of Dragon Age: Origins (and its DLC), Awakening, and Dragon Age II. Once this is done, I may go back and play different Origins and explore different characterizations, romances, and other options--well, I certainly will play them, but whether I will blog them is not yet decided.

Current play-through: Lyna, a female Dalish elf

DA: Origins )

YES

Soooo, this is the thing I mentioned last post, the Sappho poem that struck me and reminded me of the Dalish elves and which I have translated and slightly adapted to be actually relevant to the Dalish. Um. I have retained as much of the original as possible, because what really drew me to it initially was the descriptions of nature in it, and mostly have just altered references to deities and things with symbolic meaning.

I have a lot of other thoughts on this, but I will spare you. XD

Dalish love poem (adapted from Sappho's fragment, Δεῦρύ μ' ἐκ Κρήτας) )

Edit: And more thoughts )

In which fffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu- )

In which we go back in time! )

Anyway, I suppose it's time to announce my hiatus from this project. Hours at work are picking up, and I don't have time to play, let alone to blog, so we will be taking a little break. I expect to come back in full force around mid-October. Thanks to those of you who have been reading and commenting; it makes me happy that people enjoy this silliness. <3 Cheers, everyone. Until October!
