    Summary

    The long awaited tale of Tharya—before Miraak. Picking up moments after she kills Alduin, stretching through her involvement in the tumultuous Civil War, and ending with the daring rescue of the First Dragonborn from Apocrypha, this is the account of the years on her own, told directly from Tharya's own lips.

    Elderly dragons with centuries of wisdom, merciless leaders vying for power, and a single, unexpectedly handsome villain—what could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    When two Dragonborns fight, the results are never trivial, and there can be only one left standing. With the Last Dragonborn all set to be the victor, an unexpected disaster far away gives the First a chance to cheat death yet again, escaping Oblivion only to find himself in a completely different land with no hero to save it from unfolding catastrophe. No one but Miraak. Can the First Dragonborn overcome the habits of millennia to be the hero Thedas needs? Or will he prove to be a villain greater than anything Tevinter ever managed? Only time will tell - that and the efforts of one of Tevinter's outcast sons.

    Summary

    And so it begins--the birth of the legend many have come to know...or so they think. Songs are sung about her defeat of Alduin, history books claim they know all about what happened, but they don't. She didn't want to be Dragonborn, but no one really cares about that. After all, that's what she was--in fact, that's all she was, right? Wrong. Krosa was more than that, and this is the story of everything that happened.

    Summary

    Freyanna Elsonire is a former Thalmor Justiciar. An extremely talented and young Altmer rising through the ranks so quickly that she ended up making enemies within the very organization she swore to serve. Individuals afraid and jealous of her extremely quick ascension in the ranks wanted to make certain that she would ascend no further. Betrayed and left for hopefully dead at Helgen, she’s bent on making all those responsible for her fall pay. This is Freyanna’s journey towards that end. There will be some surprises and some love and some serious hate along the way. Mostly lore compliant with some exceptions for story purposes.

    Elder Scrolls is Bethesdas' baby and I'm just having fun in their yard.

    Summary

    Rowan is a Briarheart with a tragic past, tired and broken, or so he thinks. He is also Red Eagle's Chosen. Having already lost one battle against the legendary king, he isn't sure if he can confront him again. However, he is not alone.

    Madanach has been freed from the mines, but he is confronted with the fact his influence is nowhere as far-reaching as he had thought.

    This is the first time I write a multichapter story, and while I have a plan, I don't know where it might go. Features a bunch of original Forsworn characters, and is inspired by the old mod called The Forsworn Legacy, but doesn't follow it too closely.

    Mostly focuses on Rowan and Tiernan

    Rated M for my OC Shyren being horny on main

    Edit: I removed the smut chapter as it kinda felt out of place here. It will be uploaded as a separate thing.

    Edit: added cover art in the beginning

    Summary

    The Dragonborn is the ultimate hunter, sent by the gods to cull the dragons themselves. But you didn't think that dragons were the only prey, did you? Or even the most deadly...

    Skegga gra-Grishna was little more than a common hunter, looking to keep her head down and sell her pelts, maybe quench her thirst with a flagon of mead or take part in a friendly bar fight. But Skyrim is full of monsters, from the Sea of Ghosts to the icy reaches of the Pale, and Hircine has greater plans for this hunter...

    Novelization of araanims' Here There Be Monsters mod series, intermixed with the Skyrim main quest and the Dragonborn and Dawnguard storylines.

    Summary

    After the loss of its two most prominent leaders, the Stormcloaks fall under the command of Bjarni Ulfricsson, the new Jarl of Windhelm. With his father's huscarl, his hearthman Ralof and his brother Egil at his side, he takes the fight to the Imperials under a sky darkened by dragon shadows and a looming prophecy, eager to save Skyrim and a sister he's only just learned about - one who is in dire peril.

    Lia knows very well how dire the peril is. That's why she returned to Helgen, stole the Legion's tax chest, and paid the face-sculptor in Riften to change her features. But a changed face can't change a fate and the blood of the Aurelii will come out. Harried by a prophecy and the legacy of her parents, the Storm-Shadow finds herself juggling the needs of the Thieves Guild (and its very handsome auburn-haired Day Master) and the salvation of Skyrim. Alduin might be black as night, but the shadows are Nocturnal's domain and the newest Thief will steal the souls of his minions for herself...

Dick, the novel "The Last of the Mohicans" by James Fenimore Cooper, lyrics of "Remember" (the ending theme of the movie "Troy") as performed by Josh Groban, Don Corleone's lines in "The Godfather", lyrics of "Anthem" from the Cold-War musical "Chess".

    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.

    They say the gods only place the burdens that a person can bear on them. The gods seem to have far greater estimations of Laina's talents than she does...
