TTD: Favorite fanfiction

[personal profile] halberdier asked me about my favorite fanfics, written by myself and others. I will get this out of the way right now: I am terrible at giving fic recs. I haven't been reading much fic lately, and I'm pickier than is really helpful, about quality of writing, about characterization, about canon details. And then, when I do find something I enjoy, I'm not in the habit of bookmarking it or otherwise saving the link to share with others. I love the kudos function on AO3, but it's not as useful as leaving comments for going back to find things again. Last but not least, I'm avoiding my two largest and most active fandoms right now for fear of DA:I and Age of Ultron spoilers, so I'm not exactly super active.

All that said, here are a few favorites, all Dragon Age except for one since that's mostly what I've been bookmarking. They're all older, and there probably stuff that I've thrown at all of you many times before, but then again there are new people here, so maybe not. :)

Canticle by [archiveofourown.org profile] tarysande. The story that actually made me interested in Sebastian Vael. Really I could just tell you to read everything that Tarysande has ever written, she's that good, but this is an excellent place to start. She's more active in Mass Effect these days, so if that's your area of interest, check her out for sure.

Amaranthine by [archiveofourown.org profile] rhiannon87. An AU where the Hawke family ends up in Amaranthine rather than Kirkwall. Rhi is another favorite author, mostly out of DA fandom, but she writes in Marvel as well.

A Hole in the World by sahiya. A sad, sweet, and lovely Temeraire fic.

Love and Levirate by [archiveofourown.org profile] JessicaJones. Maybe the definitive Alistair/Anora story.
