Yet Another Missing Conversation Fic - "Hard Truths"

Title: Hard Truths
Fandom: Dragon Age: Origins
Rating: G
Wordcount: 2,871
Characters: Alistair, Sereda Aeducan; Alistair/Aeducan
Spoilers: Dwarf Noble Origin and Alistair's Family quests
Notes: It will probably not surprise you that I tend to play my Wardens as fairly selfless paladin types who do whatever they can to help people out. As a result, I find the line of dialogue they have to speak to "harden" Alistair rather out of character. This is an attempt to reconcile that dichotomy, at least for my Aeducan. Unlike my other "missing scene" fics, this is more of a rewrite and expansion of a conversation that happens in canon.

Relates directly to Ties that Bind, although it's also meant to stand alone.
