Hi folks (any of you who still care, lol). Apologies just aren't enough at this point, but a combination of events including some personal stuff, a crashed computer with the first 10 chapters of part 2 on it that I can't access currently, and working 3 jobs has made things just not happen. That and writer's block combined with a plot problem I've been unable to resolve haven't helped. Wrote myself into a bit of a corner. In anycase, while I'm too busy to start right now, I'm feeling the itch to write again so that's on the table for when work lets up--and I can buy the computer equipment I need to get those chapters.

I've also decided that I'm going to do it a bit differently this time. Rather than make people wait until the whole thing is done before posting (after a wait that has already been far to long), I'm going to post a chapter at a time on ff.net then rewrite the whole thing for posting here, although I may post illustrations here. I'm going to put a priority on getting story up quickly, though.

What is this?

Jun. 21st, 2035 | 12:00 am

'Remnants Enduring' is a Dragon Age: Origins story taking place after the end of the game. It's a straight ahead adventure story--a little drama, a little humor, a little romance, a bunch of fighting, and PG13-ish all the way. It's illustrated by pictures made with the Dragon Age toolset--2 per chapter--54 pictures in all. This is Part One of the story. Part Two will be up as soon as it's written and illustrated--probably in 8 or 9 months.

This story contains are massive plot spoilers for the game. If you're currently playing, but haven't finished yet, don't even think about reading this. It would just ruin it for you. If you haven't played at all, you should go do that right now, Dragon Age: Origins is a really great game. Don't even read the rest of this page. Spoilers are ahead in the synopsis.

An index to all the chapters is below.

Dragon Age, Dragon Age Origins, and the characters, lore, and history featured in this story are not my property, but are the property of Bioware and the writers who created them, David Gaider, Mary Kirby, Sheryl Chee and all the others who worked on the game. I have made no profit with this story, and will make none. No copyright infringement is intended. Thanks to Bioware, and everyone involved, for creating such memorable characters, and for letting writers such as myself play in their world.

Synopsis

Mar. 1st, 2033 | 10:26 pm

In 'Remnants Enduring', Alistair escaped execution by his fellow claimant to the throne, Anora, and the other surviving Fereldan Warden, Kallian Tabris. He fled to the Free Marches and then to Orlais, where he tried to drown his sorrow, bitterness and anger with brandy. That worked about as well as you'd expect. Now, almost three years after the Landsmeet, it seems he has a chance to regain a sense of purpose and reclaim something of his life, but it's a murky sort of chance, to say the least. And Alistair isn't exactly feeling trusting.

Author's Note

While I’ve tried to keep to the lore and potential choices of the game as closely as possible, this story is AU in some ways, which are detailed here, and some other choices require some explanation.
Please Read....Collapse )

Special thank to Lady Damodred!

Lady Damodred was the heroic beta of this story and worked with me for the better part of the last year to make it what it is. She kept the grammar train on track, corrected my spelling and was always there to bat ideas around. Her suggestions and help were invaluable, as were the times she pointed out bits that didn't make sense, plot holes and other bad things. I simply can't thank her enough for all her hard work and the immense amount of time she spent on making this story better than it would have been without her. Thanks, Lady D!

(NOTE: All the footnote numbers within the text were stripped out when posting in HTML. I'll be putting them back, but for the moment there are no numbers corresponding to the footnotes at the end of the chapters.)

(Note 2: You don't have to have an LJ account to comment, as I wanted people arriving here from the BSN, FF.net, and Dreamwidth to be able to comment, too. It would be good if commenters left a name in the body of their message, though. It's always a bit odd to converse with 'anonymous.')
