How important is it to have trigger warnings? 

11 deviants said Somewhat important; they're okay, so long as they don't spoil the audience on what's coming up
8 deviants said Fairly important; anything particularly sensitive should be addressed
6 deviants said Not important; as long as there's an accurate content rating, they're unnecessary.
3 deviants said Very important; anything that looks objectionable/disturbing to the reader should be flagged

Good evening, everyone. It's that time of year again! :)

2014 has been a pretty rough year for me (though the impression I'm getting is that it sucked for everyone); family drama, job-related stress, the pain of the reno have all added up after a while. In the end, however, that makes me all the more grateful for all the wonderful support you guys have given me over the year. Every comment/favourite/llama/suggestion means a lot to me, and I really appreciate you guys taking the time to check out my writing.

So, to that end, I wish you and your families a safe and happy holiday season, and may 2015 be awesome for everyone. And in the spirit of the season, here's a gift for you, a small (tentative) teaser for Chapter 13 of The Grey Path. Hope you enjoy!

In the years to come, the stories of the Champion of Kirkwall would echo across the length and breadth of Thedas, each heroic exploit growing greater in the telling. Yet few would ever relate the events of her return to Lothering and the Skinner’s rampage, her heroism that day overshadowed by the dark times that would follow as the grip of the Blight worsened upon Ferelden. Hawke would have far greater exploits to commemorate in any event; the tremendous battles she fought, the great quests she undertook, the empire she would forge through sheer force of will to stand as an outpost of sanity in a world gone mad. There would be better tales of Marian Hawke to tell than a fight against a bandit chieftain; the defense of Fort Westgarde, her duel against the Arishok, the Raptor Crusade, the Wolfsiege, slaying the high dragon of the Bone Pit, all these and many more. For her part, Hawke was reluctant to speak about the black days following Ostagar, or the losses she would endure thanks to the treachery of Loghain and the savagery of the darkspawn.

Yet for students of history, hunters of inspiration or seekers of truth, the Third Battle of Lothering still held insights, for it was the first time the Warden and the Champion would fight side by side.

It would not be the last.

No problem! Also, just to let you know, I plugged the first chapter of the story a bit on the Bioware Forums for Dragon Age II, so hopefully that gets you some more readers for this very awesome story. (Here's the link:…)
