Devin Amell
A stab at this week's Zev prompt, "Zevran's death". Possibly AU simply because I haven't finished running Devin through Origins, let alone Awakenings, so I'm not entirely sure what sort of state he'll be in, emotionally, at the end of all that.

A few folks on the forum have requested a clarification-story to go with this... XD Maybe soon :)

18th-Feb-2011 01:44 am - Duplicity, Part III
office
Once upon a time, nearly two years ago, I started the newest story in a series. Then other stuff got in the way. Then I started playing Dragon Age, and that ate my brain (it's still digesting). I was asked to do another chapter of my original stuff, which seemed a very reasonable request at the time, but I didn't realize how hard it would be to 1) focus on something non-Dragon Age, and 2) re-wrap my head around a subplot that was started in 2002. Yes, for serious. Once I finished wrestling with the pre-existing bits, it came a bit easier.

For those of you here for the Dragon Age stuff, feel more than free to skip this bit. Please.

finally found it
While pondering the setting for Glimpse, I had a random thought cross my mind: growing up in a large city (in a slum no less), Alessar may have never seen a live turtle before.* Imagined party conversations ensued.

This is really really early in the WWN timeline, before Knot 3 for sure, and probably before Knot 2 as well.

* It occurs to me as I write this that maaaaybe if you went to the right parts of the market you could find one, but... yeah. Continuing with silly snippet!

Urgh. This felt incredibly awkward coming out. Not in-character awkward (that part's intentional XD) but, like, my English is failing me awkward. Don't know if that's from being tired, or what, because I really wanted to write this, wasn't like I had to struggle for an idea this week (prompt: voyeurism) or something. :/ Ah well.

In terms of the WWN storyline, this is quite early -- somewhere between Knots 3 and 5.

Hmm, not certain how "cute" this ended up being, but it got the need for something fluffy and happy out of my system, anyway. XD; More than a little derpy, but anything I write as pure fluff usually is...

I considered not ending it there, but I'm not quite in the mood for the rest of it at the moment... Maybe another time... ;P

Time-wise, this falls somewhere between Knots 10 and 11, after the treaty with the Dalish is finalized :)

Well, I was attempting to write to last week's Zevthread "loyalty" prompt...

Sigh, this got all SERIOUS, more than I intended. As it is, I feel a little shaky about addressing some of the Heavy Stuff here in what was supposed to be a timed response, and I hope that I'm not going to feel the need to retcon it at a later point. Unlike most of what I've been writing lately, this is actually relevant to the (post) WWN plot, and I may hit up some poor, unsuspecting soul for a beta later.

If it's not obvious (to those familiar with the storyline, anyway), this is the morning after Satinalia.

Whew, cutting it too close -- my entry for this past week's ZevThread prompt, Zev & Taliesen. :) While I love reading about 'em, I feel a bit reluctant to write them for some reason, maybe because most of what I think up is kinda NSFW... XD;;

More a "day in the life of" than a deep exploration or a Critical Moment, but I had fun with it.

Interestingly, although it's harder for me to designate a block of time to write at home, I can concentrate much better than at work. This is almost double the word count of last week's, in the same span of time.

Devin Amell
This week's prompt was "protective Zevran", and I love that idea. O'course my mind immediately went to Alessar. But... I've written Zev being protective of Alessar, physically and emotionally, several times. XD; So I decided to stretch a bit with my other story-Warden.

Sometimes I lose sight of the fact that Devin really is kind of a jerk (and Dragon Age has made him a distrustful jerk, even better). Reminding myself of that from time to time is a good thing.

On an archival note, this changes the party lineup in Disappointments 2 -- that was written based on my original playthrough with Devin, but I've since restarted and am going through a bit differently now. Doesn't impact that story much, though...

Time for writing and editing: 2 hrs, 37 min

Hrrrgh my brain has been a bit non-operational lately. There was nearly a month between the beginning and end of this, and it probably shows. XD; Hopefully it's still worth a grin, though~

Inspired by the ridiculously cold weather here this past December. Timeline-wise, this falls a bit after WWN Knot 6. :3

This was one of those times where a prompt really inspired me, but what I ended up with seemed a bit far afield of the original intent. ^_^; The original prompt on kmeme was:

Anon is asking (with full-on pleading puppy dog eyes) for someone to write a post-dragon-chewtoy h/c fic for poor Zevran. Any flavor M!warden is fine, and it doesn't have to be the High Dragon (FtS or Archie is cool with me, too).

I kinda missed the "comfort" bit, as well as the kink, but, well, Zev tried. ;)

Time-wise, this falls between Knots 12 and 13, somewhat on the way to Orzammar. :3

Hmmm, very hesitant to post this, but, well. As I imagine most reading this can understand, sometimes when you're done with something, you just want it out somewhere. ~_~

Prooobably the most PWP thing I've ever done, but the scenario wouldn't leave me for months. Previously posted on k!meme to near-silence, which is part of why I'm afraid to post it non-anon... (If you've read it previously and didn't comment, please don't feel compelled to do so now XD It's been edited a tiny bit, but if it wasn't good before, it still isn't ;D)

If you're not familiar with sounding, you may want to check out the first couple paragraphs of that link, there, before proceeding (the idea of doing this for fun seems to give some the heebie-jeebies).

Edit: Oooh, forgot, here's a picture of the sort of toy in play, here. Without the dorky bead, though.

Right, enough stalling.

A very late response to maradeux's "Zevran's eyes" prompt on BSN. Amusingly, I had a discussion with Sresla about Zev winning arguments like this before mara's prompt came up, so with those two things in mind, here we go...

For the record: written on paper in 55 minutes, but the editing while typing probly took me over the hour mark by a little.  (Wow, it looks so short all typed up. XD;; it's almost 2 pages in my notebook.)

24th-Nov-2010 11:08 am - Infiltration (prize-fic)
zevran can handle it
A prize for the amazing Shadow of Light for one of the weekly Zev-prompts on BSN. :3 She asked for a depiction of Zevran's rescue of her Warden, Asleena Cousland, from Fort Drakon, with help from Asleena's mabari Ferrix. I love when Zevran and the dog have a good relationship, so this was definitely fun XD

As a side note: Why do the cells at Ft. Drakon have wide open bars, but solid doors? That's just silly. For this story, at least, I am going to assume that the cells, at least where the Wardens are kept, are more enclosed. Less opportunity for pulling a Riordan that way, and all that.

Yet another weekly prompt response. ;) What can I say, Zevran's been chatty with me lately, and usually Alessar is game. This week's prompt is the Rogue specializations (other than Assassin, which is, of course, a given for Zev). I spent too long on this to put it in as an entry for the actual contest, but it was a fun scribble. XD

(Shoutout to vvalentine, who will probably find this "game" very familiar. >:D)

Timeline-wise, this is post-Awakenings (obviously, from the skills involved), probably not too long after their reunion, whenever that is... A time when they're still re-negotiating their fit a little.

Play-at-home version: see if you can tell what specialization skills they're using. :p As I noted on BSN, between the two of them, Z & A have all 6 Rogue specs!

Something prompted by the rain this week -- not the deluge of the past two days, actually, but the crisp, cold rain from Monday. The tropical storm helped to keep the mood, somewhat. (The hot rain was a bit of a turnoff, though, yech.)

I think Z&A are finally running out of mushy suggestions, which is a bit of a relief at this point. ;)

Timeline-wise, this happens a bit after Knot 13.

Yet another prompt-response, although this one doesn't really count, because it's a prompt I set. ;) I finished this yesterday, but didn't want to post it so early in the BSN thread since I know people are still working on their entries, and no one likes getting beat to the punch -- SO -- fair warning to those who prefer not to see other entries before posting their own!

I wrote within the allotted hour, but (since it doesn't count anyway..) I took some extra time for editing. And looking up Spanish verb conjugations which I have long forgotten.

I may have to import this into the relevant part of Well-Woven Net when it arises...

Zevran's bit of song is from "Protège moi" by Placebo. :3

Another prompt-response from the BSN Zevran thread. :) The prompt, in brief, was, even though Zevran would face the gates of the Black City with/for his Warden, what would he not do?

Time limit was 1 hour for this one, and in keeping in the spirit of that, I haven't edited much of this except to change a couple of words for flow. Among other things, I didn't like having to try to explain Dev's relationship with Morrigan in a couple of sentences, but of course there really wasn't time to get into it. ;)

As far as continuity goes, this is Disappointments!Devin rather than Geese!Devin -- Zevran's been with him the whole time, not just after the Blight. I might still consider this AU, though...

Don't expect quick turnaround like this again any time soon. XD; I've got some things to do before I can get to the next knot, but hopefully this one will do for a while. :)

Many thanks to Sresla for beta'ing and putting up with my badgering and overly long explanations of things in reply. ;P

Oof. Wall of text crushes jen for over 9000!

...And sadly, this isn't ALL of what I wanted to cover in this part. ;) I had to reserve the rest for the next Knot, but perhaps that's for the best. This part of the story is the first time I've had so many Knots so close together in time, but I suppose, in the game, your time in Denerim is pretty tightly packed too, eh?

Apologies for the couple of... hmm... craft-related tangents; the first seemed to fit into how Zevran was engaging Alessar's senses, and the second was... well, an explanation for the sake of clarity more than anything. XD; I actually pondered taking the entire first part out and leaving it as a separate strand, but I thought the illustration of Zevran's care for his Warden was important.

As always, thanks to Sresla for beta'ing. ♥

Edit: WTF! Somehow all of the secondary edits I made last night before posting this are gone. Re-adding those in as I find them... Grr...
