Chapter Twenty-One: Heart of Darkness - Part Two
It took several minutes of wrangling and pleading on Irving’s part, but at last, the great doors barring their way to the entrance hall finally opened, and the tattered and exhausted survivors of the Circle emerged into the light with an audible cry of relief, the fear their jailers once invoked in them a minor anxiety following all the horrors Uldred had unleashed. “Irving!” blurted Knight-Commander Greago

Shadows Within: Epilogue 3 (FINAL)
Merrill’s Apartment (Lowtown)
“This is a bad idea.”
Merrill sighed. “I know you think so, but—”
“You realize every time he’s come out in the past, he’s killed someone?”
“Not last time! Last time he was perfectly civil. Nice, even.”
Anders sighed and rubbed his temples. “I don’t want to do this.”
“I know. But… but I have questions for him. Important ones that even you can’t answer. I need to talk to him. Now. That’s why I asked you to visit me here.”
The feathery mage sighed again as he scratched at Ser Prowls-a-lot’s head. The cat, who had tagged along for the trip to Merrill’s home, purred and arched against his fingers, letting out a contented mewl. Anders picked up the black-furred feline and set him on the ground, safely out of the way. “All right. You win. Just… give me a moment. He doesn’t usually come willingly.

Shadows Within: Epilogue 2
The Black Emporium
Leliana stepped through the thick wooden door and into the sparse quarters she would call home for the foreseeable future. The door slammed shut behind her, followed by the comforting thunk of the lock’s bolt sliding home.
The room was small and cramped, but Leliana had lived in far worse conditions in the past. The important thing was that it was warm, safe, and – most important of all – inconspicuous. Less than fifteen minutes’ walk from Xenon the Antiquarian’s throne room, this small and long-abandoned complex of apartments once housed his many urchins. It would serve her purposes well.
She saw that one of the Antiquarian’s urchins had left a message on her desk. She picked up the parchment and scanned through it quickly, noting the soft scent of Chantry incense wafting up from the paper.
Sister Nightingale,
I was most surprised by your first report. Demons, blood mages, immortal relic merchants… yo

Can we all admit that this winter sucked? Because, yeah, it totally sucked.

I know, as a proud Canadian, I'm supposed to keep a stiff upper lip about these sorts of things, and boast about how we've all got ice water in our veins and how we're all children of the storm and even the most intense blizzard is nothing more than a gentle afternoon's snowfall, but seriously? That was terrible. Between massive snowfalls, ice storms and then a windstorm just a couple of weeks ago, it was a decidedly unpleasant experience that did little to help with the writing situation. I'm actually considering moving into a new place, simply because I'm tired of dealing with the perennial reno issues that keep cropping up and never seem to get resolved, as well as the constant stress that comes every single time the weather turns bad; it's hard to thinking about writing when you're always on edge about the roof. Hope everyone else's is better, and the next one is a bit more forgiving for all of us.

On a more positive note, work on the next chapter of "The Grey Path" is coming along, slowly but surely, and I've also been chipping away at both some Mass Effect-themed fanfiction, as well as some original stuff I hope to submit for various online magazines. I definitely want to try and at least submit something before the summer's out; it's been a long time coming, and hey, some extra money wouldn't be a bad thing.

Also, the always awesome :icongaspode5: and I submitted an entry to :iconthe-bards-college: most recent Collaboration Contest called "The Ferelden Play" (which also ties into "The Grey Path", so if you like that story, you'll probably like this one, and Gaspode's wonderful art that goes with it). There is a poll running for the Viewer's Choice award for the contest up until the 26th, so any votes you're willing to give us really would be appreciated. Hope you're all doing well, and thank you for your continued support!
