There Be No Justice (in Destiny or Time), Chapter One

(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?

—Walt Whitman

Dare (f!Mahariel, m!Mahariel, Radha)

(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
Rating: G

(Also on AO3 here.)

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

Fade Dreams (f!Mahariel/m!Mahariel)

Word count: 1171
Characters: Alistair/Lyna Mahariel
Rating: G

Let's see some righteous Grey Wardening!

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 )

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 )

Dragon Age: Origins - Denerim/Alienage/etc redux

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!

Dragon Age: Origins - Denerim, part II (Goldana)

In which the capslock-to-seriousness ratio regresses slightly, and there is a little mush.

Or, formally, in which we locate Alistair's last living relative )

Dragon Age: Origins - Return to Ostagar DLC

Yeahhh, I have reached the stage of addiction where I willingly shell out more money to prolong this awesome game.

In which we search the ruins of Ostagar, and FINALLY, GODDAMNIT )
