    Summary

    Leaving her life of crime in the past and living in Skyrim under a pseudonym, Helkatla Barnstormer is surprised to find a new traveling partner in the very rich young scholar Lucien Flavius, someone with whom she had previously unknowingly crossed paths. They eventually join the tight-knit Companions Guild, in a career move not so different from Katla's old life, and pick up her old friend Inigo along their travels. But as each quest becomes more dangerous, the trio begin to question their loyalty and trust in each other. Katla's old identity threatens to clash with her new one as the Dragonborn, embroiled in political obligations and the struggle to resist the Will to Power, and in the middle of it all, she discovers another darker secret in her new family: a twisted pact of blood, betrayal, and daedric influence.

A new prophecy arises among the undead. When destiny comes knocking on his door, he begrudgingly takes up his blades once more in the faint hopes of being left alone or shown some respect. He finds this approval in the strangest of places.

    The enemy, Heiress of the Vampire lords.

    Summary

    Melisandre looks into the flames and receives a vision from the Lord of Light. A Dragon will be raised from blood and fire, with a voice to topple mountains and bring Kingdoms to their knees. She urges Stannis to make the sacrifice her Lord demands - not knowing that she's about to unleash something far wilder - and far more dangerous - than a mere Dragon into Westeros.

    Pulled from her home, not understanding a word said around her, the Last Dragonborn is absolutely done with this shit. She's doesn't give two fucks about Kings or Armies or Thrones. If she has to, she'll shout the whole bloody continent to the ground to get home.

    What happens to the Game of Thrones when you toss the human equivalent of a nuclear bomb at it? And how will it alter the course of Westerossi history?

    Summary

    5 years after the Dragonborn's victory over Alduin and subsequent disappearance, a new Vampire threat emerges to the north of Solitude. Now back in Skyrim, the Dragonborn, Sirius, lives in disguise, working in secret to maintain the peace of Skyrim.

    Unable to shake the demons from his past, Sirius eventually joins the Dawnguard and stumbles upon an ancient tomb and an unlikely ally. Now, the Dragonborn must come to terms with his past failures and broken spirit, navigate a mysterious time-bond created by the Elder Scroll, and save the world from plunging into Darkness.

    NOTE: This series loosely follows the plot of the Dawnguard DLC, with some changes/additions here and there.

    Summary

    Everyone believed the Last Dragonborn dead these last few years, after he fulfilled the prophecy and defeated the World-Eater in Sovngarde, and shortly thereafter ending the brutal Civil War that plagued Skyrim, before disappearing from the world.

    Although he is done with the Divines, it seems that the Divines yet again have plans for him. For out in the frozen tundra of the Eastmarch Hold, an incident drags a benumbed hunter into confronting reality as he is drawn into another world-ending prophecy, this time involving the nocturnal beasts of the night.

    Sometimes, you have to settle the ghosts of your past before you can have a future.

    Summary

    Tallulah Moonstep never expected to be leading some of Skyrim's most famous (or infamous) guilds. Nor did she expect to team up with a vampire. She didn't expect to be a werewolf, not to mention the fact that every Daedra can manage a claim to her soul (which will certainly make her afterlife... interesting). And she certainly didn't expect to be the mythical Dragonborn prophecized to save the world. Which, to be honest, is a bit of a scam, since she's saved the world three times, yet only one came with the deal of being Dragonborn.

    She's beginning to wish she never hopped on that ship.

    But Tallulah Moonstep is determined to catalog how she went from Khajiit stowaway to Dragonborn, all in her trusty diary. Be warned, however. There's lots of death. And cursing. And Tallulah has a habit of using three words where one will do.

    CURRENT STATUS: Almost done

    (Author's note: Literally none of this is edited. I give it a quick once over before I publish. Comments and kudos are also very appreciated. This went from a goofy indulgent fic to one hell of a project.)

    Summary

Since then, she hasn't left, not really. One day, Farkas decides to follow her around, especially when he hears rumors of her being the legendary Dragonborn.

    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.

    🗡️🗡️🗡️

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

    Lydia Righarsdottir is a woman born of heroes, an exceptional fighter, a tower of a woman, both famous and infamous about her hometown, the best warrior Whiterun has to offer outside of the Companions. The greatest honor of her life has been to be asked to take the oaths of a housecarl, even greater when she was given to the service of the Dragonborn, a hero of legend. The problem is the Dragonborn herself. Almost nothing about her is what Lydia expects or wants. Still, she is sworn to carry her burdens, and oathbreaking would be worse than death. So, she learns to live with her. And, maybe, even care for her.

    Summary

    As an author, the society of the Falmer has always fascinated me. Usually, the player/dragonborn is an outsider and the Falmer only serve as blade fodder in the context of the story. So, being a helpless nerd, I went through skyrim, used some console commands to make my dovakiin invisible to enemies, and watched the falmer in their caves. Despite the programming being absurdly simple, I caught some interesting interactions between falmer--things that hinted at a society. I looked at their little totems and watched how they moved within their little villages and how they treated their chaurus. They have specialized huts for alchemy and enchantment, huts for weapon-making. By god, they're capable of making advanced tools, why isn't there more on them???
    I wish that the vanilla game had offered these creatures more leniency, had allowed the falmer to have agency beyond "well, they used to be snow elves, how tragic." They've lived in the caves, they've survived for centuries, they have a society of their own!

    Here is my interpretation of what could have been.

    Summary

    One moment, Robin Kelly is being shot in the convenience and bleeds out with cheerful pop music playing through the speakers. The next, she's dreaming about a flaming monster that tells her she's going to succeed where her predecessor failed. She wakes up in a horse-drawn wagon that shapes out to be part of a very familiar opening scene. Robin operates under the assumption that she's in some sort of limbo, up until she realizes that no, this is real, and she'd like to just die, please.

    Summary

    Follow the journey of Aam-Su, Phsycian, Apothecary and Alchemist extraordinaire...!

    Who lost everything after getting caught between an Imperial ambush on Ulfric Stormcloak and, now, found himself being forced to be an adventurer in order to make ends meet. Out of shape, perverted, and without any heroic characteristics whatsoever (unless there's money to be gained or fellow Argonians in danger), except for a bit of common sense, he tries to make the best of his situation to try and climb back to the top - while struggling to remain true to his original views in lieu of the lessons reality teach him. As told both from his point of view, as well as those of the people whose lives had lasting changes thanks to his deeds.

    (If any mod used affects the depiction of scennery or events, it should be listed in a note before the chapter, with a link leading to it. Also, thanks to my wonderful fiance for proof-reading this mess for me!)

    Summary

    He was a bounty hunter with a troubled past, and she... well, she had a grudge to nurse and clung to it as though it were her lifeline.

    With the country at war, the dragons returning and the world aflame, the divines had somehow seen fit to leave the fate of it all in their hands. As it turns out, they couldn't have chosen better - and they certainly couldn't have chosen any worse. Battles, bloodshed, and winged-beasts in the sky, this is the story of Kaidan, First of the Dragonguard, and Estrith Fey, the Last Dragonborn.

    Update Schedule: lol, what even is a schedule? >.>
    I aim to put out two chapters a month, at least, but I suck ass at sticking to dates. Don't worry though, I'm not abandoning this fic any time soon. <3

    Chapters 1-14: Meeting our protagonists and setting the scene, all that lovely background stuff.
    Chapters 15 onwards: Our protagonists have finally met!!!

When Knight-Commander Theona of the Vigil of Stendarr was sent to Skyrim to discover the status of her brothers and sisters in arms, destiny placed her on a different path entirely. With the rising threat of civil war, the looming darkness of the Thalmor and the constant dangers plaguing the province from Daedra and abominations alike, her path is one filled with darkness and peril.

    Skyrim is being torn asunder. New friends and foes appear around every corner. The World-Eater awakens.

    And the Wheel now turns on the Last Dragonborn.

    Summary

    Inspired partly by the Hero series, by ScriptrixDraconum, this is a tale about a woman getting trapped in Skyrim, with no knowledge of the world that she finds herself in.

    In a timeline different from our own, where the Elder Scrolls series does not exist, Chilali Micheals is completely lost when thrust into the world of Nirn. Chi was a studious and somewhat snarky girl, only occasionally privy to flights of fancy. She never had lofty goals and certainly never imagined being a “hero.”

    Gelunok is a lonely orc who never saw himself as anyone important. Voiceless, alone and outcast, shunned by his own kind and living in the wilderness... He never imagined the future holding much for him.

    But as the days pass, the two would learn that fate can change your life in an instant. If either of them had known that just one day could change their lives forever, they would have just stayed in bed.

    TLDR: An anxious yet rather opinionated American nerd becomes an unlikely companion to an outcast orc. This story is the first in a series of adventures that these two find themselves in. Lots of new experiences are abound for this duo. Fate will have interesting plans, indeed.
