Panacea, Dragon Age 2 Modern AU fic COMPLETE

Over a year ago (holy shit I can’t believe it’s been that long!!) I started this multi-chapter Hawke/Anders Modern AU story. I knew from the start exactly how it would play out and yet it took me until today to give it a proper ending. I don’t know that anybody who follows me read/liked/cared/still cares about this, but there it is, the first multi-chapter story I’ve finished in probably 5+ years.

DAO will be done in 3 hours so if it runs on this computer, I’ll be streamin that shit tonight. I’ll probably also play on way too high a difficulty since I’m really bad at it (even after beating it like 30 times) so you can hear me get really angry at the game.




Rumors of DA3 Plot & Companions from this forum of the Bioware Social Network:

We got 2 product descriptions of the overall plot of DA3 from the surveys.
This was the first-

“The great nation of Orlais, the most powerful empire in Dragon Age, tears itself apart in civil war. The stout men and women of Ferelden struggle to recover and reclaim their nation from the horde of vile Darkspawn that lay waste to its lands a decade ago. The Chantry, the once-unified faith of the Dragon Age world stands divided. The Templar Order has broken away, claiming the church has become too lax in policing the dangerous powers of the mages. The mage Circles have rebelled, believing the Templars have become too strict, too zealous in their duties, and too quick to slaughter those who dare step out of line.
The World of Dragon Age is on the brink of collapse, and when a desperate gathering in the name of peace becomes the epicenter of a magical blast that decimates the Chantry’s leadership, it becomes clear that someone or something is manipulating events to drive the world to chaos.
From the ashes of that explosion, something new arises- the Inquisition. As the Inquisitor, it falls to you to build your power and martial your forces, uncover secrets and build connections across the world. You must explore forgotten places, uncover ancient mysteries and uproot those who would destroy the delicate fabric of the world.”

And this was the second, translated from German by a forumite here-

“A portal between the worlds unleashes hords of demons in the land, civil
wars rip apart nations and the corruption is limitless. Someone is
behind the shadows, drawing the threads which destroy the world. Time
has come for the Inquisition.

Take the Inquisitor’s cloak and
lead the only force able of bringing light into the darkness. Choose the
direct method and gather your armies, send spies into the shadows or
engage in a political war, make friends and use your connections
indirectly: it is up to you how you lead the inquisition. But you’ll
have to take lead of it from the beginning. Make your player a rogue,
warrior or mage and set up your crew from up to ten (!) complex
companions to lead them against those who attack you by systematically
spying on, revealing and destroying them.”

And here are descriptions of several companions-

Cole- A long time ago, a young man died a cruel death is dark place. And now, somehow, there is Cole. Was he a spirit or a demon? Is he human now? Cole is not sure it matters any more. Hounded by memories that aren’t his own, invisible in a world he can stalk like a shadow, the rogue must decide between joining the living or preying upon them.”

Dorian-Dorian Pavus is a Tevinter magister. The title conjures fear of arcane master who once enslaved nations. Dorian may wield the power of the magisters, but he delights in not being what you would expect. Brazen and clever, this outcast is on a crusade to rid his homeland of its corruption.”

The Iron Bull- The Iron Bull is a long way from home, and he prefers it that way. A slap in the face of typically humorless Qunari(Kossith), he loves drinking, killing and looting- but not necessarily in that order. The head of a vicious mercenary company, he’s known for excellent pay and brutal punishment. It’s been a decade-long party, but the Bull may find that old loyalties die hard.”

Sera- Sera is young, frenetic, and a brat through and through. She revels in the athleticism of being an elf, of being different. But her culture isn’t elven, or for that matter strictly human. It’s the underbelly of the city in her network of rogues; what you do it more important than where you’re from, and friends open more doors than titles. Robs from the rich to keep for herself.”

Cullen, Cassandra and a Grey Warden are also listed as companions. Art of Cassandra and the Grey Warden was previously shown by Bioware to illustrate their new campanion customization system.

Concept art was also leaked, showing several of the companions listed and a few others.

These concepts were also listed as possible additions/focal points to DA3:Inquisition-
  • - online/co-op mode
  • - special finishing moves
  • - a lot of crucial decisions
  • - drama and suspense
  • - player-controlled day/night cycles
  • - better party management
  • - 4 companions at a time
