I washed my face and hands at one of the communal basins. I had let my grief consume me for a while but knew I wouldn't be able to hide in that temple forever, I could see Duncan and some of the other Grey Wardens gathered around the pyre. Alistair's mouth moved and the group burst out laughing, I envied that they laughed and wondered if I too would be able to laugh again. Everything just felt so fresh like a wound that wouldn't stop bleeding. I met Alistair's gaze and he waved me over, I shook my head, still not ready to join them yet. I needed to do something first, digging in my pack I pulled the flower from the wilds out and tracked down the kennel master. He filled my hand with a pouch of silver grateful to have the plant he so desperately needed. The wounded hound lifted his head as I turned to leave, a

Characters: Carver Hawke x Merrill
The battle was over. Meredith was done, gone, or something else, but it was over. Carver’s career as a Templar was likely finished as well, though that was still up in the air.
He had joined mostly out of spite, but only recently had he come to regret it. Why did he have to fall in love with a mage? The moment he met Merrill he was infatuated. She was constantly on his mind, and talking to her resulted in things being awkward. At least on his end. She seemed not to notice. The teasing and mockery he received from Isabela, his sister, and Varric just left him too angry.
Merrill was constantly in danger. Her naivete in regards to human culture, and the way she carelessly put herself at risk always had him worried. Sure, he joined the Templars to spite his sister
Jade Empire: Sky's story I leap down from above, slicing my way through the only guard I see before destroying the gate to the slave pen. Well done Sky, I mentally congratulate myself.
"He's freed the slaves! You'll pay for that maggot!" yells a pirate I hadn't noticed, racing down the ramp with what must be his two closest friends. Damn it Sky! I hear a soft step in the hallway behind me. Maybe there's hope after all.
"Will I?" I reply. "If you scum have any sense at all you'll stand aside. Let me go drive a blade through your master's throat and I'll forget I saw you." The threat is not an idle one. The sabers in my hands aren't just for show. I will take down as many men as necessary to get to the bastard that is responsible for the abduction and murder of my five year old daughter. While the pirates have a brief argument over the meaning of sarcasm I take a quick glance over my shoulder to check out my potential back up. And then check again. Standing in the entranc

"Bridge to CO. Bridge to CO," squawked the intercom that rested just above Ashley Williams' head. She cursed as she reached up and slapped the panel to answer.
"What is it bridge?" she replied unable to keep the sleep or irritation from her voice.
"Ma'am, we are approaching the jump to the Sowilo system?"
Ashley noted the hesitation in the pilot's voice when she gave the destination. After all according to the Alliance Military database Sowilo was not only uninhabited and practically without value, but was far outside the Alliance's sphere of influence, located deep in the Terminis Systems. Despite having received the order personally, the pilot was still unsure if the order was correct.
"ETA to system's edge two point three two hours EST." the pilot finished when Ashley did not reply.
"Very well. Standing orders are to engage stealth systems as soon as we enter the system. Please inform our guests of our ETA as well, Lieutenant. Commander Williams
Dragon age origins: All of me: ch 10Chapter 10: Into the Wilds by Faynyx
The second we stepped into the Korcari Wilds we were ambushed by a pack of feral wolves. No sooner had we dispatched them did Ser Jory and Daveth start bickering. The two fought like children and it reminded me of home. How many
times did I listen to Soris and Shianni fight over the years, the thought brought the heartbreak of their loss to the surface and I walked a head of the two to try and distance myself from their argument.
“Who… is that?” a faint voice called. I dropped into a crouch and pulled my dagger from its sheath following
the voice. Dead bodies were scattered upon the ground while one severely injured man struggled to walk towards us. I stood rushing to his side.
“Are you grey... wardens…?” he asked weakly.
“Yes.” Alistair answered. He told us
Bullets and Scars Ch. 11
We build space ships with faster than light travel and we can't make an elevator travel from one floor to another in less than ten seconds in said ship?
Shepard groaned as she leaned on the railing in the lift, starting to unclasp her armor, not being able to wait any longer to get it off. As her burden eased, it also got easier for her to breathe again. Soon her whole armor was on the elevator floor, and the door opened as she reached the crew deck.
She took a moment, taking a breath as deep as she could without her fractured ribs causing her too much pain, and then she started walking towards the med bay.
As she rounded the corner she saw the doctor already coming towards her, her expression a concerned one, mixed with a bit of annoyance, Avery guessed.
"It's not as bad it looks, doctor," she said, trying to smirk, but suspected that the pain showed on her face no matter how much she tried to conceal it.
"No," Chakwas replied, and stopped her to take a look at her injuries, "I

Chapter 26: The Stone Prisoner
The statue was like that of no other I'd ever seen - it was not as majestic as those in Ostagar, nor was it as subtle yet prominent as the ones made in Andraste's honor. It was thicker, bulkier, as if it were crafted to intimidate, not show worship or beauty. Its pose was disturbing, arms raised into the air, fists clutched and face yanked into a sharp frozen pull as if it were petrified before it could finish its scream. It was smaller up close - Alistair's forehead stopped at its neck - and the body was oddly curvaceous, broad and prou
Dragon Age: The Ferelden Chronicles (17)
“Ahh, look how they moan and wail and gnash their teeth. 'Tis sad to watch how helplessly they scurry about.”
Morrigan's assessment of the situation wasn't far off. The town of Lothering might have once been a nice little hamlet, but whatever charm it possessed had been lost to the effects of the coming Blight. Dozens of people milled around outside the gates, begging a small group of templars for help. Entire families huddled together under shelters made from their own clothing strewn across rope lines, while stragglers milled about alone or in small groups wherever they could find a place. Where once there would have been the cheerful sound of children playing, there was the crying of a young boy who had been separated from his mother. It broke Varia's heart to see the devastation that had already been caused by the Blight, and she knew it was only going to get worse.
“It's just a guess,” Alistair said, gently moving Varia aside as a C

"I spy with my little eye" Alistair said softly as he tapped the top of his pestle against his chin. "something that begins with .....'F'" he finished as he began once again crushing the mushrooms in the mortar he held loosely on his knee.
"Careful Alistair, you don't want to get that all over." Leliana said softly as she pulled the pot of boiling water from the fire.
"Sad that you are not looking in a mirror, or I would say fool." Sten said about as moodily as he could possibly get. He was watching as Leliana coached Alistair in the making of poisons and poultice', at least he w

On the other side of the window, the Normandy hung suspended within a zero-gravity latticed frame. The lower hull doors were open, exposing the drive access tunnel and the engineering area above it. Beyond the frame there was nothing but stars, save for the shadow of the moon beneath them.

Cullen threw some papers on his desk just about the time Hawke came to his office.
"Uh, I think I am just going to wait out here, Hawke." Varric looked from Cullen to Hawke.
She nodded then proceeded through the door. She stood there studying the man looking back at her. She noticed that his eyes were holding a lot of anger, but for once she had no idea how she was going to make it better. Cullen may have been a bit strict with certain things at points in his life, but he never liked it when people died, especially when i

Shepard had been in the comm room for almost ten minutes with the Council. That was eight minutes longer than he had expected, nine considering she hadn’t started swearing yet, and nine minutes and thirty seconds seeing how her voice was still at an acceptable level for the prissy members of Council. He spun his chair around, getting a clear view of the CIC. A small group of the crew had formed near the comm room, split into two small groups on either side of the partition, all listening in on her conversation. Sure, it probably wasn’t the best course of action, especially if she caught all of them out there, though they didn’t seem to care.
He turned back to the monitor. They had lost Ashley only an hour before, left behind to die in the blast if she survived the geth long enough. Not that he blamed the commander for her death, it was

Alistair ran toward Fort Drakon. He'd known the minute the blade had been driven into the archdemon's skull, and his near-frantic worry about Myranda had sent him sprinting into the city, despite the shouts from Wynne and Leliana. The bolt of light that had shot into the sky and the ringed explosion that had rocked the top of the tower had not helped his

There he was, a veteran of a galactic war. A highly trained soldier with more kill counts than he was certain any sniper had ever achieved. He had led a crew of specialists and waged a guerilla war against three of the deadliest gangs in the galaxy. But on this day, the day he was finally released from the hospital after over a month, was one of the few days he'd ever feared death.
"KEVIN KEEP IT STRAIGHT! ISMENE, FOR THE LOVE OF THE SPIRITS, WILL YOU STOP PULLING TO THE RIGHT!?"
Nurses, doctors, and orderlies dived out of their way as the kids stampeded their way through the hallways. Everything was a blur as Garrus clung to the chair for dear chair jerked, left, then right, followed by the sound of an old man screaming, "You little…." He had no idea where they were taking him as he caught glimpses of people he knew and shouted apologies to them. After what see

Parents should love their children.
That much is obvious even those who lack the ability to think properly know this. Children were not made to serve their parents, and parents ought to love their children.
Some, however, do not. Or at least, they do not behave as if they did.
It hurts now, but one day it'll stop hurting. She's little, and fragile, and always seems to be in a bad mood. Mother does not care for her much, and Katina knows it, she can tell, even if Mother keeps on repeating that she loves them all equally it is obvious that she will never be the daughter she wants her to be, she's not sweet Bethany or little Carver. She is older, and as bitter as a child can be, and Mother does not<
