A Long Hunt is fanfiction for Bioware’s Game of the Year Dragon Age: Inquisition. It is based on my first playthrough of the game, plus extra lore, theories, and odds and ends that I learned along the way. Sollavellan Lovers, welcome! This is heavily focused on my version of a female Dalish archer rogue as the Inquisitor, and she falls for Solas pretty hard. Elisara is smart, independent, and generally pretty wise, but she also has quite a temper… it makes for a beautifully hot mess when you throw her and Solas together. There are some departures from canon, but I have mostly added or redirected canon material/events rather than completely changing it. The two main alterations are regarding the very end of both the main Dragon Age: Inquisition campaign and Tresspasser DLC. In both cases I have added material that cannot be legitimately considered canon.
I’m also publishing this on the fanfiction website An Archive of our Own, which is currently in Beta. Feel free to join/read there, and find other good (and meh) fanfiction.
Updates will likely be unpredictable, but will happen. All 12 chapters are planned, with notes/outlines written.
