And now... the big one. ;) Originally posted on swooping_is_bad and now living on midwintersthaw, this is (as the community name suggests) A Midwinter's Thaw, my ongoing collab with w0rdinista:


Title: A Midwinter's Thaw
Author(s): w0rdinista and pagerunner_j
Rating: G to start, but eventually working upward.
Main characters & pairing: Alistair / Elinora Cousland
Summary: It's eight years after the Archdemon's defeat, eight years after Loghain's heroic death on the top of Fort Drakon, and eight years after Alistair stormed out of the Landsmeet, never to be seen again. It's five years since Elinora took up the mantle of teyrna of Highever after Fergus remarried and became King in the process. And now the worst blizzard in memory is bearing down on Highever, and Elinora is prepared for it. But the Maker has a sense of humor, after all, even in the face of such a storm, and so He sends her something else that she's much less prepared for....

Chapters:
All chapters of the fic and the fanart archive can now be found at midwintersthaw.




And below the cut... spinoff fics, AUs and interludes.Collapse )

It occurs to me that there's a few fics I never properly collected on here. Might as well do something about that. ;) Links and such, with the newest first, and a couple more from way back when:


Title: By Blood Revealed
Characters: original
Rating: T
Length: 2,500 words
Summary: After the explosion of Kirkwall's Chantry and the ensuing chaos, two templars, Ser Aryn and Ser William, are pulled from recovery work and sent to find some of the escaped mages from the fallen Circle. Things do not go exactly as planned. When Aryn gets an unexpected glimpse into the past of one of the mages they were charged to find, she has to make an important decision about where her duty truly lies. Written for BioWare's fic contest.

You ever find yourself in the midst of a writing project that you desperately wish you could tell people about, but to do so would be to spoil everything right to hell, and so you can't? You know how maddening that can be?

Flaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaail. ;)

Well... since I can't talk about THAT one, have a random snippet of an Anders fic I'm muddling around with in the background as well. More to the point, it's Anders and Cullen. It was meant to be crackfic, given the circumstances, but as usual with me, it's not turning out that way. I'm going to have to start posting this soon, too, I think.....

Teaser, from some ways in, for additional Cryptic Fun.Collapse )

Length: 1,700 words
Rating: M. Very.
Summary: Iria, as commander, really can't afford to be making decisions from the heart instead of the head -- especially this sort of decision. But sometimes it's inevitable nonetheless....

Intro, as I put it then: After much temptation to do so, I finally gave in and wrote the Alistair / Isabela / PC threesome. True to form for me, though, it didn't end exactly where it began. It began with jokes. It ended somewhere more unsettling. The epilogue whacked me upside the head good and proper, and it still stings....


Title: Lessons
Length: 4,200 words
Rating: M. Very, very M.
Pairing (tripling?): Alistair / Tabris / Isabela
Summary: This liaison might be a good idea, or a very risky one indeed -- but either way, no one's coming out of it unchanged....

Scenario, as I described it then: A few thoughts were chasing each other around about the aftermath of Broken Circle, if you were playing as a mage and had Alistair along. My own mage didn't do things in quite this fashion -- in fact, she took Jowan up on his offer before they even got to the Tower -- but I started to wonder how things might have fallen out otherwise... and exactly how complicated it all might be between her and Alistair, just beneath the surface.


Title: Dark Lights, Bright Shadows
Pairing: Surana/Alistair
Rating: T, mostly. nsfw just in case.

Rating: M
Spoilers: through the endgame
Length: 4,141
Summary: A pivotal event approaches. Alistair isn't quite ready. And Elissa might be less certain about some things than she believed....
