    Summary

    Glory, fame, and riches comes at a price. You're not willing to pay but they didn't say you get to choose. Right and wrong hardly matters when you are the chosen one.

    Chosen by the Gods. To be what, a champion, a fool, a slave? For what reason are you carrying a title of a hero when all you ever achieved is cause the death of your loved ones. To kill people you do not hate, to have your memories haunted by guilt, to pick between the greater good and your personal interests.

    If only a simple act of running away can free you from destiny's grasp.

    All of these you'll rediscover when you wake up in a Thalmor prison. No memories, no answers, no one to ask for help. No one but a swordsman in the brink of death.

    Summary

    Cosnach has been waiting all his life for something, or someone, to drag him out, beyond the walls of his dreary hometown. He certainly didn't expect this someone to be an unusually short Khajiit, but you know what? He'll take it.
    His escape just doesn't go quite as planned.

    Based on one of my very first playthroughs of Skyrim.

    Summary

    Nocturnal watches from afar a young man she wishes to bring into the fold of the Trinity, a Nightingale. But it is more than his protection she needs. She has found a way to reproduce and she has chosen Gallus to fulfill that desire before he ever leads the Thieves Guild or meets Karliah. It is his job to find two more Nightingales once his task is done and he would be rewarded with riches and fame. Nearly a year later, a mysterious baby appears out of nowhere in the Thieves Guild, but it soon realized this child is not only Gallus' daughter but Nocturnal's as well. He has been tasked with taking care of the child.

    Years later, Gallus is betrayed and murdered by Mercer, and Karliah is forced to flee being accused of the death of a beloved leader. His daughter still a child of ten flees to a family friend in her grief where she will grow up and practice her special abilities and magic. Eventually, there is word that the Guild is falling apart after all the hard work her father put into it. She chooses to finally return home, but not as she is. She will return in disguise, not wanting those she knew and grew up with to recognize her.

    Summary

    A quiet life in Falkreath was all Linnea hoped for, despite what the townsfolk might think of her. Her greatest wishes were for her siblings to write her more, some time to practice her magic and her lute in peace, and, just maybe, a chance to fall in love. Not once had she ever wished to be the legendary Dragonborn, savior of Nirn. Kaidan returned to Skyrim on a quest to find answers to his past. The Thalmor seemed to have other plans in store for him. Now, both their destinies are intertwined with the fate of Nirn.

    Fate has apparently decided to make him famous.

    "I don't know who you are or what pack you come from but you scared off my breakfast." Thea huffed at the wolf.

    She met its eyes and froze, her blood suddenly feeling like molten metal. Mate.

    Summary

    The story of Kat's life before coming to Helgen, and becoming the Dovahkiin. A ridiculous, sometimes serious story, involving thieves, pirates, murder, and mayhem. And by "sometimes serious" I mean this is Kat, if you know her, you know she'll still make jokes when she and her friends are in mortal danger/dying.

    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 1 mostly follows the first half of the Companions quest line (set before the return of Alduin) with some side questing thrown in for good measure. Vilkas is moody, Aela has a dirty mind, and Ondolemar makes an excellent foil for discussing the utter strangeness of life in Tamriel. (Companions content starts in chapter 5)
