* ''Synopsis'': AU where Anders went to Tevinter and became a healer in Danarius' household, mostly to treat Fenris. Years later, after Fenris escaped, they meet again in Kirkwall.
* ''Comments'': A skillfully crafted AU that tackles some really difficult issues without sweeping them under the rug. How does former slave deal with his past. especially when meeting it face to face? How does a non-evil person deal with being a part of a terrible system? And how does one write non-antagonistic Anders & Fenris interaction while keeping them both in character? Just read this incredible story and see!

* ''Synopsis'': Lavellan receives messages from the people of Thedas.
* ''Comments'': Short Inquisitor character study via fanmail and hatemail he receives. Perfect pacing and seamless tonal shifts from fluff to angst and back. I wish the letter feedback like that was an actual part of the game.

* ''Comments'': This author writes some of the best fanfics in my opinion and is one of my favorite authors. She's written an entire chronology of fanfics pertaining to Dragon Age: Origins timeline including one-shots, fluff, and continuations with original plots and characters. All characters feel spot-on and completely humanized; you believe the struggles they go through, making them all the more endearing. All of her stories are written predominantly about the relationship and adventures of Aedan Cousland and Leliana, while also including Alistair as Aedan's best friend and brother warden. Many of the other companions are featured in her stories and make appearances.

* Dissenting opinion here: First, the fic has been on hold since January 2015. Secondly, there are some great ideas here about Dalish/Keeper magic that are more in line with what is seen in Awakening and VideoGame/DragonAgeII. However there is a deal which does not align with what has been seen in prior games with regards to the Dalish (Elgar'nan is treated as more of a singular god rather than one of many, for example). Thirdly, Solas is rather openly hostile at start to thr point of being OOC without seeming reason; even at his least civil, he was nowhere near this hostile without given cause. (Compare his interaction with Vivienne and the Iron Bull with the mages who summoned his friend.) Finally the writing is very weak and in desperate need of a good edit for flow and minor errors. ~Flib

* ''Synopsis'': After Solas wakes from Uthenera, he is captured by Templars and put in the Ostwick Circle, the same place Evelyn Trevelyan has been staying since she was 8 years old.
* ''Comments'': The premiere is quite simple but its execution certainly isn't. The story not only focuses on the main couple but also explore the culture and lives of Circle mages, how different individuals try to cope with their ordeal. Solas himself received a lot of character developments while still giving him reasons to continue his goals in canon. The story's atmosphere and characters, canon or [=OCs=] are deep and realistic, and the author has a knack for excellent, thought-provoking writing, foreshadowing along with well-placed cliffhangers. Currently, the plot has moved to just after the Inquisition acquired Skyhold and quite a few details in canon have been changed like Evelyn is Solas's lover even before canon and is now [[spoiler: in full support of him taking down the Veil]] due to her experience [[spoiler: as a Tranquil]] and what happened after Kirkwall.

* Comments: A great story of how an ME-origin!Trevelyan comes to Thedas and trying to integrate herself there while looking for a way to go home. The plot progresses slowly but definitely not boring because the author knows how to explore the characters' interactions and how the culture clashes can happen. Helen Trevelan, with her modern view and personality, is likable and a force to be reckoned with as she deals with everything around her. The story focuses on other characters' development through their relationships with Helen and her foreign view of their world, like, in particular, Solas and Cullen. It also explores more mundane issues that a modern person could have when they're in a pooer, more primitive society such as [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking inadequate diet and poor sanitary leading to health problems and malnutrition, language barriers, and unfamiliar daily activities like using quill and ink]].

** Furthermore, the current plot is hinting that there'll be more exploration about the connection between Thedas and ME, namely [[spoiler: the elves being enhanced humans or that the fauna and flora of Thedas are originated from Earth]].
