#modern character in thedas

I’m afraid I’m drawing a blank on a non-warden MCIT, but here’s an Origins era story I’ve been enjoying:

Best Laid Plans Of Mice And Morons By: Sublimey

A blood Mage joins the Grey Wardens just before the battle of Ostagar. Cinna doesn’t know a lot of things, but she does know that she’s never done a smart thing in her goddamn life. Accidentally curing the blight along the way just so happened to one of the few good things.

And this one transitions into DA2 fairly early, I think, but it does start in Origins:

You call this fun?! By: Grey_Huntress_Warden

Catarina Lewis’ world turned upside down, so she ignored it. Until the day she found herself in Thedas. Now she is being swept into adventure after crazy adventure with friends who make life and death into a daily game. The more she learns of herself, the less certain she is of what she wants. Her knowledge of Thedas may come in handy, but everyone she meets is so much more than their character portrayals, and trust is easier said than given. The future she doesn’t know seems worse than the one she does– it is worth trying to change things, especially when she can’t know if it will be for the better?

A WONDERFUL AND PAINFUL SURRENDER- a modern girl in thedas fic

PAIRINGS: cullen rutherford/oc, female mage lavellan/oc, solas/female mage lavellan
RATING: mature
WORDCOUNT: 47,325 words, 8/? chapters
TAGS: mgit, asian mgit, memory loss, prophetic visions, found family, hurt/comfort, slow burn, lyrium addiction, canon-typical violence

On Earth, Cara closes her brown eyes, resigned to a tepid and normal existence, and wakes up in Thedas with irises sparkling the color of sunlight.

Cara doesn’t remember who the fuck she is, but they tell her this is Haven. The Frostback Mountains. Skyhold. Her memories comes back piecemeal, paired with visions of the near future that drag everyone in the vicinity into her mind with her. And of course, all of this would be bearable if the voice in her head would just shut up.
(In which all this Modern Girl in Thedas wants to do is survive, but the universe is hellbent on making her remarkable.)

One of my favorites is the Traveler series by sarcasmandcynicism. The protagonist is…so interesting. Ending up in Thedas isn’t even the most exciting thing to happen in her life. She has a backstory and motivations beyond the scope of Thedas and she’s skilled

Another one I’ve always loved is Tales of Inquisitor Bob by lazbobthing, but that one is on indefinite hiatus, unfortunately. This was the first story I read that approached the MCIT trope with a more chaotic protagonist. It was a breath of fresh air after some of the dark realism stories I had been reading at the time, I think.

Look. I have so many modern character in Thedas fics because I was so sick and tired of MCIT fics where they join the inquisition or are the inquisitor and it’s almost a retelling of the game. Or they join Hawke and co and again just a retelling. I wanted to see more diverse off the beaten path stuff. And if I had to partially write a bunch of it myself to try and encourage the MCIT writers to start diverging from the typical - then so be it.

Rating: Mature (Overall); General Audiences (Chapter)

Summary: 9:30 Dragon. The nation of Ferelden is on the brink of war, with the machinations of those with ulterior motives setting the stage for all out conflict as the Blight looms on the edge of the Korcari Wilds.Transported into Thedas, one woman is found by a group of Avvar and brought to their hold, where she is given a chance to live under the name of Heda Snow-Walker. Any plans she had on staying uninvolved with the Fifth Blight, however, are shattered when tragedy strikes, and now her only chance at survival lies within the armies at Ostagar. Too bad she already knows how that will go.

Excerpt: He turned to look at her. “There are those among us who would believe the presence of a lowlander in our hold to be an ill omen. Word already spreads of the ganger’s appearance in the mountains.” Stigandr raised one withered hand, silencing her just as she opened her mouth to speak. “Tell me, Snow-Walker: what do the gods say of these strange times we now live in?”

How in hell was she supposed to answer that? Once, he had come to her to speak with Hope about matters concerning the hold. But he’d never asked her to interpret the will of the gods. She felt like a student being given her final exam at the start of the semester.

“I can’t speak on behalf of the gods,” she said, when it appeared he truly expected an answer from her. “Only myself.”

“Then what say you?”
