Devin Amell
Long time, no post, eh? My work schedule for the past several months has made it really hard to spend time concentrating on writing, unfortunately. :/ Well-Woven Net 21 is half-done or so, but I haven’t had the wherewithal to wrench it along to the end. Similarly, I haven’t had much chance for the occasional one-shot, either, though I’ve managed a few that I still need to post here...

And here’s one of them. :) Bioware held a fanfic contest in December to celebrate the release of Asunder (the latest Dragon Age novel). I had to write something, if only to show support for more fic contests in the future. Since Asunder relates to the escalating mage/templar conflict, I tried to keep that overarching theme in mind when I thought about what to write.

Didn’t take me long to find a topic. There was a codex entry in the Tower, found while you’re clearing out the demons, abominations and so on, that really made me stop and think the first time I saw it in game. I figured it would give Devin pause, too...

So here’s my entry, which was selected into the contest’s top 20. This is the sort of stuff Devin thinks about when he's not planning a campaign into someone's pants. Easy to see why he prefers the latter, yeah?

My main writing muscle (i.e. my brain) has been crippled lately, but when Bioware announced that they'd allow fanfiction in their Mark of the Assassin fanart contest, I had to join in to show that dammit, fanficcers want to play, too! The length limit was 1000 words; I had to trim this a bit to fit, so here is the uncut version. Hopefully I didn't make any typographical blunders while "uncutting". ^_^;

Hrm, I need a Tristran icon. ^_^; A Fenris one wouldn't hurt, either...

A random dash of something-or-other inspired by some herbwork of my own lately. :B This falls after Proof but before Revelation.

Title comes from the Muse song of the same name, which starts out with the line, Chase your dreams away...

Devin Amell
Catching up on some stuff that never got posted here. XD;

Just a short silly snippet, borne out of a conversation weeks ago with Sresla, who brought up a superhero duo with a seriously horrible catchphrase. He suggested it was the sort of thing Alistair would come up with, which, in my mind, would lead Devin to an almost inevitable response. XD

My non-entry for this week's prompt -- took far too long to write, so I exceeded the time limit, but it was important enough an event that I wanted to get it right. I *think* I did all right, but I've been so sleep-deprived this week that it's hard to tell. XO

This is a sequel to Proof, and maaaay still be AU. I haven't decided... but man, that's a lot of effort for an AU. XD

This took a bit of replaying and a bit of thought, and so ended up taking longer than I would have liked -- though there was a vacation and some other personal nonsense in the middle, there, too. XD; Hopefully it'll be less than 3 months before the next bit, which follows pretty closely after this one.

Thank you to Sresla and telerib for beta'ing this!

with you to the end
A reply to this week's Zev prompt, Zevran as the rescuer in the dream in the Fade. :o This popped into my head almost immediately after seeing the prompt. Since the entire premise is AU, so is the story, although up until this point, it can be assumed to fit into the Well-Woven Net storyline. X3 More notes at the end~

This pretty much poured out once I got started. Hooray for prompts that light a fire! XD

finally found it
My actual entry for last week's prompt, again, AU role reversal with Zevran as the Warden and the PC as the would-be assassin; a follow-on to Recruitment.

Everyone loves the gift system for stories, right? Right. XD I'll be the first to admit this is a weak plot gift, but one plot gift for Alessar is almost certainly Fang, and my other idea, listed after the story, is something I've already touched on in WWN. XD So~

(Oh, in case it isn't clear, the bow referred to is Falon'din's Reach X3)

zevran can handle it
My initial non-entry for this week's prompt, AU role reversal (Zevran is the Warden, and the PC is the assassin sent to kill him). :o I wanted to sort of lay the groundwork for the situation, but it took far, far too long, and way too many words. XD If I have time, I may do a proper timed entry in the same setting, but we'll see...

I reused one of Zevran's lines from WWN in there... the opportunity seemed too good to pass up. XD

A prize-fic for hilde33 from a prompt a couple of weeks ago. :3 She requested some Devin and some Tapster's, so here we are ;D

There are a few more meta-game sort of notes at the end that I think are best left until after the story. ^^;

This week's prompt (Wardrobe Malfunction) nudged my brain into gear almost immediately. And I was in the mood for something silly anyway...

If timeline stuff is of interest, this comes between Knots 10 and 11, probably a bit closer to the latter.

I am no wiser than you
My late non-entry for the "Secret" prompt, with the actual topic prompted by Corker. XD A little bit rough around the edges but it's about as good as it's going to get this week. D:

This is meant to happen sometime in Act I of DA2, so in terms of Alessar and Zevran's path, they've reunited in Antiva, taken care of some business, and are now returning south. More importantly, it happens after The Steel Key (which is thoroughly NSFW, if you wander over that way :x ).

I meant this to be a bit quicker, but, well, "you can't always get what you waaaant..." Quick or not, it's still silly.

Prompted by Corker's suggestion, "DAO Dog meets DA2 Dog." XD The situation probably isn't canonically impossible (with *my* canon, I mean), though it would change the encounter later in Act 3 a little. ;D I do imagine this happening in Act 3, though. ;)

References to events in DA2 are so vague that I don't think this needs a spoiler warning. ^^;

Devin Amell
Continuing on the roll with Devin/Zevran stuff. :o This is an event in their relationship I'd wanted to elaborate on for a while, and this week's Zev prompt, "temptation", gave me a reason to do it. It feels a little disjointed right now, and I might go over it sometime with a red pen, but for now, the meat of it is here, at least. :3

Oh hey, finally a serious DA2 fic, starring Tristran Hawke (snarky rogue) and Fenris. An insistent scene buzzing in my head that I had to wrestle into submission. :p

Oh dear Maker
I was a bit bored so I put out a call for silly ideas... mousestalker at BSN suggested: "Alistair overhears the Warden discuss Zevran's skill in tying knots in cherry stems. He tries to learn it solo. Laughs ensue." It should be no surprise which of my Wardens was all over that. XD

Whew!  Last minute entry for this week's Zev prompt, "consolation".  Like usual, I feel like I came at it a little too obliquely... I don't seem to be able to handle prompts straightforwardly. XD; It still could use some editing, but I was worried about the deadline. ^_^;

For the curious, the nature of Devin and Jowan's relationship is outlined in Waves Spreading Outward.

Well, they're back. :)

This chapter went through a lot of pushing, pulling, hemming and hawing, but it's finally in a state of completion, I think, or close enough. ;) Apologies for the long delay -- it's been everything from vacation, to work, to short one-shots getting my attention, to Dragon Age 2 (which, to be honest, has had minimal impact, creatively...). This should be the end of this rather long 24-hour period that's taken up 4 chapters of the story... ~_~ Next time: back to the actual game plot!

A big thanks to Sresla, charnia, and syverce for their input on this one!

Devin Amell
A bit of derp inspired by the latest Zev prompt ;D I wouldn't even consider this a legitimate response for the prompt since it's not really Zev-centric; it's just that the idea got me thinking of what would happen if Zevran wasn't alone...

Whatever Hawke I eventually make based on Devin's playthrough hasn't been named or designed yet; fortunately, a surname works just as well for getting around that. ;P
