  1. Summary

    Began as the straight-faced answer to 'what if the Dragonborn was Thalmor?' 2.5+ years of world-building, lore-digging, and writing later, this is a monster. Loosely follows MQ, College of Winterhold and Dragonborn questlines, with some stories set in First/Second Great War.

    Come, stay, enjoy.

  3. Summary

    Songs from A Dream of Dragons (and other works) in their entirety. I have a few characters who are bards, or for whom songs are an integral part of their character.

    That and sometimes I hear a song that I could tweak the lyrics for and make it entirely a Elder Scrolls thing :p

    Summary

    Original Prompt:

     

    BIG MEN WITH SOFT HEARTS (FLUFF)
    How about a manly man DB who is the most merciless and bloodthirsty of warriors (at least that’s what the stories say), and we get to see him being all soft over a baby.
    Maybe it was the result of a one-night-stand? Maybe it was just an abandoned infant? Either way DB has to take care of the baby, and he is just so SOFT. Cooing and awing over the baby with lots of fluffy stuff.

     

    Story:

    Geirn goes into a cave to fight some bandits and comes out with a baby and a lot of anxiety about it. And it's a three day walk to Whiterun.

    Summary

    A retired Orcish legionnaire and a Bosmer in self-exile were an unlikely pair to find themselves wandering the roads of Skyrim, always in search of adventure and gold, but mostly gold. Ghorbash the Iron Hand left his stronghold to join ranks with a mage who was talented but far too cocky for Ghorbash's taste. Theirs was a companionship that worked well, however, with one providing brawn and the other providing wit--or at the very least, successful distractions. What started as an uneasy balance turned to friendship and an even stronger bond as the two found common ground and constant danger. At least life was exciting outside of the stronghold.

    A collection of tales, following the misadventures of Ghorbash and Kaj--two idiots who make memories, discover love, and wreak havoc along the way.
