Ulda stirred from her sleep when the sensation that someone was watching crept in. The Nord about jumped out of her skin when she saw Ayraen sitting there looking at her.
"By the divines!" She cried, "Were you just sitting there watching me sleep?" Ulda pulled the sheet up over her instinctually, feeling vulnerable.
"You snore, you know that? Loudly too." Was all Ayraen offered for a response, "The Mountain of a Nord is back with armor for you as well."
"My name is, Farkas." The Nord grunted.
"Right." Ayraen replied nonchalantly.
Ulda looked at the armor Farkas held in his hands. If it wasn't for the fact he was built like a mountain she would wonder how he managed to hold it all. However, the boots were resting on the floor. It was beautifully crafted steel. It was lined with fur and think wool for the under padding. There was thick, what looked like bear fur that hung from the belt. Nordic carvings were engraved ove

Summary: Newly reassigned to Val Royeaux in 9:40, Cullen has struggled to adjust to the upheavals in the Templar Order. A late night visitor may hold the key to Cullen’s troubled heart, but will it ultimately cost him even more?
"O Maker, hear my cry:

Steel my heart against the temptations of the wicked
Make me to rest in the warmest places."
Even the Chant of Light couldn't distract Cullen from the ache in his knees from kneeling on the cold stone floor, or from the deeper disquiet in the pit of his stomach he had hoped to allay with his prayers. The last rays of the fading sun lit up the stained glass from his one ti

Sigyn turned to leave but turned bumped into a tall figure dressed in green. Surprised, she looked up at the softly glowing eyes of Prince Loki. He bowed slightly and held up his hand. She put hers softly against his and they began to dance, their movements perfectly matched.
"Where is my brother?" Thor asked, looking around as he found his friends. Sif smiled and gestured to a couple dancing. Thor's mouth fell open. Sif shut his jaw, chuckling to herself.
It was hard for Thor to look away from his brother. Loki had never expressed much interest in dancing but there he was. And he was good. Loki was always agile, but now, he was graceful.

Cullen hated waiting. He shifted slowly from one foot to the other just to give himself something to do, no longer concerned that someone might see him fidgeting. The oppressive silence in the meeting room was only broken by the crash of the storm raging outside the White Spire. The Lord Seeker had urged them to make great haste to Val Royeaux for this unprecedented congregation of the Knight-Commanders of Thedas, and now that all were here, they waited.

"I know what you're thinking," She said quietly, "...But I...I won't be any trouble. I can help. Really, I can. Kodlak was good to me, even though we didn't know each other well. And...I want to help you."
Farkas sighed, and walked over to his mate, taking her face in his hands. He looked into her eyes, and did now allow her to look away. "When was the last time you used a blade?"
"I...I had to defend the carriage on my way here."
"...So...two months ago?"
She nodded as best she could, and Farkas let go of her face, sighing.

As the elf walked down the steps all lean lines, lithe limbs and a shock of pure white hair Sekhmet tried not to stare, he was an artist's dream. His fine bone structure kind of reminded her of a porcelain doll she had seen in a shop in Denerim once. The elf glared at the slaver, his green eyes filled with pure hate. "Your men are dead and your trap has failed. I suggest running back to your master while you can."
Her jaw almost hit the ground and her knees felt weak for a brief moment. There was no way an elf should ever have a voice that deep, and it was beautiful, like everything about him, almost painfully beautiful. The large sword strapped to his back was something she would have seen Carver carry

The orphanage dwelt below a dingy cloud that draped over everyone. Their fear and suspicion of the intruders coming back alarmed their thoughts. The children were to frightened to run and play outside. Their ghastly faces hung in fear of the returning nightmare of Ferret and his men.
Elliot's injures had healed, but his craving for revenge scorched inside him, burning into his heart like glowing iron. He had never felt so much hatred in all his innocent life. His life before was so tranquil and peaceful at the castle. He was born to royalty and lived at the castle all his childhood. He never knew of the cold hostile world outside the warmth he knew.
His jaw clenched grinding below his smooth skin. His temper flickered at the thought of Ferrets haughty face as he slapped Linda. His thoughts were interrupted abruptly as a diligent knock at his door snapped his mind t

Alarm shot through when the lack of sensation was recognized, a lack of cold or warmth or sight or scent- it was nothing but darkness, nearly nothing but void. Everything was still, silent and peaceful. A hard won peace at that, trillions of our kind being lost in the battles. But they had prevailed.
We will always prevail.
The booming voice and its words comforted us, alarm giving way to peace and admiration for him, the one who faced certain death and survived, allowing us to exist.
We knew we had eternity to exist, and many tens of thousands of years before action would be taken again, abundant time to wonder and learn. We learned the voices of the legion, voices that would sound identical to lesser beings, but among themselves, each voice was a world apart from the next. We learned of the few who had been lost to such lesser beings t

If it had been a little, black hair she found hanging there, she'd have completely dismissed it.
But it was blue.
She looked at it in disbelief for a few seconds. It was so tiny, so thin it was almost impossible to believe that she was holding it at all. She didn't even feel it between her fingers. However, it was there. That or her eyes were playing tricks on her again.
Was it possible? After two years of his absence, and feeling like all the times spent together had been a dream a beautiful dream-, he reappeared again like this.
She dropped on the floor, her old red muumuu forgotten by her side. All her focus was now on that little but very significant hair. As the morning sun that barely begins to heat the land, that little proof was beginning to bring back all of the memories on the girl's mind. It was like a sting that reminded her that he had actually existed, and along with that truth the pain came again.

His white silk dress shirt with golden vest, with an ivory pressed sash with gold buttons perfectly aligned down its front. Along with his crisp ivory pants folded to perfection beneath it. Tonight he would find her and look his very best.
He had lost his chance earlier that day to tell her how he truly felt. The sun setting through his narrow crooked window, there wasn't much time before sundown.

I woke up in my room. I looked outside and it was dark. How long have I been asleep?
I searched for my clock, but couldn't find it in it's usual place. I groaned and I took
notice to my room that was now lit up by the soft flickering glow of vanilla scented
candles and were placed on my dresser. At night, I didn't have anything to light up my
room. I was grateful to whoever put them there.
I rubbed the left side of my forehead where it had collided with whatever hard object
in the greenhouse and I flinched at the sudden tenderness. It was all just dry blood now.
That's going to be fun to clean up. I groan, "I hate sterilizing wipes."

Standard Book of Spells, with not much help from Malfoy. He was wandering around,

Malfoy always makes fun of me, calling me a "True Mudblood." All because I think that
