Parallel Lives is a crossover AU (Dragon Age:Origins characters in a Mass Effect setting) that has spiraled into a major series. I've translated each of my six Wardens (one from each origin), along with various companions and NPCs, into the Mass Effect galaxy, circa early ME2.

Six Glimpses
Six Glimpses introduces the six "Wardens" and their various places in the galaxy. It was my entry for Wave One of the first ever Dragon Age Big Bang. I was fortunate enough to receive amazing art from two very talented individuals.
Reg's gorgeous typesetting of the opening paragraphs to each chapter can be found here.
Chen's wonderful illustrations, again one for each chapter, can be seen here.


Seeds of Conspiracy
Seeds of Conspiracy picks up where "The Alliance Officer" left off, following Lieutenant Alexia Cousland on board the Alliance cruiser Nairobi as she searches for the truth about the attack at Ostagar, comes to terms with revelations about her family's tragic deaths, and struggles to resist the bond she's forming with a marine under her command.
It was my entry for Wave Two of the Dragon Age Big Bang. Chen chose to illustrate my story again, for which I am profoundly grateful. Her amazing contributions can be seen here and here.

Lieutenant Alexia Cousland gritted her teeth as she swept her assault rifle across the group of mercenaries overrunning the squad. That was <i>not</i> how this mission was supposed to go. Collapse )

Alexia Master post

It's come to my attention that I have fics featuring Alexia Cousland scattered all over the internet, and there might be people who would like having an easy way to track them down and keep them all straight. The latter point is especially important given my love of "what-if" scenarios and AUs; I have at least three or four different timelines for Alexia out there. They all make sense in my head, but anyone not in my head could probably use a guide. Like this one:

Witch Hunting

This is another fic focusing on Alexia, my Queen Cousland. As the title may suggest, this explores Alexia's motivations for going to find Morrigan. I'm incredibly grateful to my beta reader and critique partner signcherie and my husband Chris for their assistance with this one.


When Alistair said to me, "You know we can probably never have children," I didn't care.Collapse )

Codex Alexia

This is my first serious Dragon Age fic, inspired by and set during Awakening. It's also the longest piece of fiction I've written in over a decade. Huge thanks to my beta reader and critique partner signcherie for encouraging me to follow through on this and for helping it be infinitely more readable and interesting. Thanks also to my husband Chris and my avatar Atan for helping find Alistair's voice and deepstalkers, among other things.


Excerpts from a journal found during the reconstruction of Vigil's Keep. Attributed to Alexia Cousland.Collapse )
