    Summary

    Brand, an exiled young thief from Valenwood, makes his way across Skyrim headed for Riften, where he heard there’s a Thieves Guild that will take people like him under their wing. He makes his grandest entrance yet when he stumbles into the Guild after nearly drowning in a Riften canal. Mercer proposes a test -- the infamous Goldenglow Job, but Brand is more interested in why the Guild listens to this Maven Black-Briar lady. The more he runs into her, the more he dislikes her. Can no one see how manipulative the woman is? As Brand rises through the ranks of the Guild, events come to a head. Mercer gets more secretive, the Guild’s troubled past comes out, and Maven Black-Briar just keeps popping up. So Brand sets out to do the one, or rather three, things that no one else has dared - confront Mercer, challenge Maven, and rebuild the Guild.

    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 4: The First Dragonborn is dead; his soul, his power, his knowledge, and his unfulfilled fate, added to that of the Last Dragonborn. It is time for Alexa to return to Skyrim and decide what being the Last Dragonborn means; not just for herself but for the world.

    Summary

    “I will go, if you want me to, Dragonborn,” I spoke just above a whisper, feeling the heat from her body radiate outwards, inhaling the smell of the sweat in her hair and the blood under her tunic. She only shook her head, placing the wine down on the heavy desk. Her fingers lingered for a moment, wrapped around the neck of the bottle.

    “What if I want you to stay?” she asked, shy under the hard mask of a young woman who defends the soft parts of herself with tooth and claw. I’d gladly bleed and bruise to feel the delicate parts of her, body yes, perhaps soul as well.

    🗡️🗡️🗡️

    Morwen Nox is an ambitious, doom-driven adventurer and skilled thief. Kaidan is a brooding bounty hunter with a mysterious past, and a life debt to pay. Their paths cross as the Thalmor narrow in on the Blades' presence in Skyrim, while tensions between two political powers continues to mount. As the pair grow close, whether it be by fate or something more human, the Season Unending approaches.

    Summary

    Volume 3 of the books that describe the Nightingales.

    Alternate description: I attempt to write a lorebook. Perhaps it can be found ingame, if you're exceptionally lucky. Perhaps, if Karliah likes you enough, she'll let you borrow it. Perhaps, if you give it back, she finally moves on from Gallus and is available as a follower and a marriage candidate. There is of course a perfectly functional mod for making Karliah a follower and potentially marriageable but it doesn't have this, now, does it?

    Summary

    I made a batch of AUs for my elf! Some spoilers among them so be careful!

    Disclaimers:
    — Aeolus is not canonically Dragonborn, Nightingale, Thief, Listener, Werewolf, Vampire, or Companion. He’s just a Thalmor agent that thinks he’s cool.
    — This stuff is mostly unedited so it’s not very pretty.
    — This stuff is just for fun.
    — This guy doesn’t fit in any romance AUs, I swear.

    And if y’all’d like to see these AUs then go ahead ‘n’ say, I need the inspiration.

    Summary

    Rheia enters Skyrim to join the Mage's College, but gets sidetracked with the Thieves' Guild. When she runs into the Dragonborn Listener, it becomes apparent that while the Assassins and Thieves may have an arrangement, the two were never meant to work in close quarters. When the Brotherhood and the Guild find it necessary to do just that, it is sure chaos will ensue.

    Rheia and Jenassa must work with Valasca and Cicero, but how long can that really be expected to last?
