    Summary

    This began as an exploration of Elder Scrolls lore through the eyes, and adventures, of the Last Dragonborn. It got away from me.

    Act 3: Things are falling apart. The civil war is heating up, more and more dragons are appearing all the time, and the College of Winterhold is under threat from both within and without. With the dragonborn forced to split her time between Skyrim and Solstheim her life is quickly spiraling out of control. It’s a good thing Teldryn is willing to step into the role of responsible adult… most of the time.

    New Readers: It is not necessary to have read Acts 1 and 2 in order to understand most of what is going on in Act 3 (if you’ve played Skyrim). But I would suggest you read the “Story So Far” summary (link inside) for a quick recap of what quests have been completed and what “Cannon Divergence” includes.

    Summary

    The Civil War has ended in favor of the Imperials, thanks in no small part to the Dragonborn. Ulfric Stormcloak kneels before her, ready to meet his kinsmen in Sovngarde, when he is spared unexpectedly. The Dragonborn finds his Thu'um to be of use to her, and Ulfric is now at her service -- as Dragon-bait.

    Summary

    With no way to study magic on Solstheim, Furiae instead traveled to Winterhold to enroll in the College. All she wanted to do was study the mystic arts, and maybe earn a Mastery in Conjuration. Discovering an ancient and powerful artifact a stone's throw away from Winterhold was never on the curriculum, nor was stopping the Thalmor liaison from abusing a form of magic no one could hope to understand. But what other choice does she and her fellow apprentices have?

    Summary

    After learning of the disaster that was the Eye of Magnus at the College of Winterhold, the Thalmor Council sent eight Conservators to retrieve the mer responsible: Ambassador Ancano, Muril, and Amuril Malcior. They intend to make an example of these three would-be warmongers, but there's just one small, minor, tiny, complication in the Thalmor's plans. One they're not aware of.

    Amuril is the Last Dragonborn's husband.

    Summary

    Hamelyn Swet has led a hard life. He's been beaten, battered, bruised, cursed, captured, hunted and hassled from one end of Skyrim to the other. He would be perfectly content to slip into a comfortable, quiet life with his books and spells, but there's a small problem.

    Fate has apparently decided to make him famous.

    Summary

    She fled to Skyrim to postpone the arranged marriage for as long as possible after all the turmoil the Thalmor has put her and her family through. He came to Skyrim in the hopes of finding a means to end it all.

    Certain they would live to regret it, they saved the life of an overly ambitious Thalmor, but they would unite to rise against the real threat Skyrim would offer them.

    Summary

    Yves Montclair thought he had it all: titles, money, incredible talent with magic... Turns out he couldn't add 'loving younger brother' or 'faithful wife' to that list. In a particularly brutal political maneuver, he finds himself delivered to Skyrim's warfront, knowing full well he's not meant to survive, much less return to High Rock to reclaim his birthright. If that wasn't bad enough, the poison he'd been given to subdue him did permanent damage to his magicka. The one-time genius of Shornhelm, master of each school of magic, is left with a single spell and barely enough power to cast it.

    It would be so easy to give in to despair, but Yves feels obligated to survive after being rescued at Helgen. Maybe if he can survive the week, he stands a chance of taking back what is his? Please, sweet Julianos, at least let him get his power back! At the end of the day, that power was all he ever had.

    Summary

    The gods disapprove of the mortal currently destined to be the Dragonborn, so a new one is found and brought to Skyrim.

    Unfortunately, she's from a different dimension and doesn't like the sound of this whole "hero" thing. So, Akatosh gives her a deal she literally can't refuse: she gets sent to Skyrim two years before Alduin's return to prepare herself to fight the World Eater. If the original Dragonborn takes their rightful place, then she gets to go home; if not, Alduin awaits. Sounds like no big deal, right? Well, not so much. Nirn has more to offer than what a video game can show, and Rowan's right in the middle of it.

    Alternately: The destination may be your destiny, but how you get there isn't.

    Summary

    Helping people is nice and everything, but sometimes you really just join a faction for your own interests. It's a little silly to ask a sword-wielding mercenary to be the Arch-Mage of a College he's rarely present at.

    Summary

    The Listener seeks out a contact at the College of Winterhold to be tutored in magic, only to find a woman far stranger than she appears.

    Velia, once called Vestige, has existed far too long to want to deal with petty squabbles. She just wants to work in peace. Until Ancano decides he's going to destroy the world before she accomplishes her plans...

    In the background, Nocturnal watches the strings of fate draw tighter as the Prophecy of the Last Dragonborn approaches.

    Summary

    Rather than submitting to the Inquisition when his plan to alter time fails, Gereon Alexius casts a spell to escape with Felix. Fuelled by the unstable Veil and the magister's pained desperation, the spell blows out of proportion and transports the father and son to a completely different realm, which seems to be experiencing quite a Dragon Age of its own.

    Summary

    Far before the vanishing of the Dwemer, Akita daughter of one of the architects was exiled. Far from her home, she made peace with the Ayleids.

When she wakes, everything she knew is gone, cities and people completely new to her walk around. As the last of her race she has problems already with no one believing her, adding Dragonborn to that makes her life all the more interesting.

    Summary

    Fuelled by the Summon Inigo spell, Tashok returns to Winterhold in order to craft a spell of her own in the same vein. While there, she gets reminded of something she should have done quite a long time ago (almost three months, in fact!). Soon, she'll be wishing she hadn't remembered.

    Summary

    Jackie Carson, a mild-mannered hairstylist, finds herself in a dangerous world after a weekend camping trip goes awry. Bradas Sarayn, a dark elf on the run, finds himself stuck in Skyrim and facing the possibility that he might be more than an ordinary man.

    This is a modern-girl-falls-into-skyrim type of fic, because I'm a sucker for those and wish there were more floating around! Rating may go up later.

    Summary

    When Alta becomes the Arch-Mage of the College of Winterhold, she tries to abdicate it immediately. She’s hardly a mage: the only school she has any real practice in is Restoration, and she doesn’t know much of that beyond some minor healing and whatever anti-vampire magic Isran was willing to teach her. Hell, she’s not even all that great at the spells she does know. She’s not an Arch-Mage, she’s a bard and a bowman. Get someone else to lead the school.

    Unfortunately, the Psijic’s will would not be denied.
