Crossposting: DA Holiday Exchange

I completed my project for the Tumblr Dragon Age Holiday Cheer exchange last night. I hesitate to call it a fic, because the format is actually a poem. I don't know if I've ever written poetry except for a class, so I was pretty nervous about it, but in the end I was pretty pleased with how it came out, and [ profile] heretherebdragons was happy, so I am also happy. :)

Title: The Handmaiden's Canticle
Rating: G
Wordcount: 386 (poem plus notes)
Characters: Andraste, an unnamed OC
Spoilers: Alludes to endgame spoilers for DA2
Notes: A retelling of "Spirits" by heretherebdragons, in the form of the Chant of Light (the holy text of the major religion of Thedas). Not version of Andraste's life story that the Chantry would like you to hear.

A prettified version, made to resemble the codex screens in Dragon Age: Origins, is available on Tumblr and on AO3.
