    Summary

    Destiny is a funny thing. It's less funny when you're the last of your kind, and it applies to the both of you.

    "Did you ever think it'd be like this? That'd we'd turn out to be the ones holding the fate of Nirn in our hands?"

    "No," he admitted.

    "Neither did I. But I'm not going down without a fight. This... our world is a little messed up, a little crooked. But as long as I'm living and breathing?"

    An inhale, an exhale. The shimmer of the aurora played across her face, reflected in her eyes.

    "This world is mine. I'm not letting anything take it away from me."

    Summary

    I would like to extend my profound thanks to paraparadigm, who volunteered to be my beta reader. Her keen eyes and helpful suggestions have been and continue to be invaluable.

    The Dark Brotherhood and the Thieves Guild have long been linked in Skyrim. When murder was required, the Guild relied on the Brotherhood to carry it out. When the Brotherhood needed information, the Guild provided it. Now something has happened within the Guild to change the status quo. Guildmaster Mercer has cut off ties with the Brotherhood, refusing to offer any further aid. Astrid has tasked skilled and deadly Raven with infiltrating the Guild to find out why. Raven must curb her lust for blood and stalk Mercer, to set him up for the Guild to kill. This assignment will be the most challenging task she's ever faced.

    Summary

    "Dibella says: Open your heart to the noble secrets of art and love. Treasure the gifts of friendship. Seek joy and inspiration in the mysteries of love."

    When Alduin descends upon Skyrim, intent on restoring His ancient dominion over mortalkind, everyone begins to pray for a mighty warrior who will lay the World-Eater low. That includes Aurelia Ink-Fingers, a Dibellan scribe and illuminator dispatched to the northern province as both a means of exile and to shut the local clergy up about being neglected.

    Their prayers aren't exactly answered. Because she's the Dragonborn.

    Somehow, she doesn't think Alduin's going to stop by for a little behavioural therapy and see the error of His ways...

    And contrary to popular belief, the Dibellan Arts have their limits, even if she actually practiced them.

    Dibella help them all.

    Summary

    Vera's world ended not with a bang, but with a whimper: the year is 2095, the world in the throes of late-stage climate change. The Earth will keep going, the humans - not so much. As it turns out, the apocalypse is contagious: either that, or Vera has spectacularly bad luck. Waking up naked on a bloody altar isn't the best introduction to a new place, but you make do with what life hands you. After a rocky start, Vera finds herself in Markarth, trying to make a new home for herself amidst the violence, corruption, and Thalmor zealotry. But just when things are finally settling down - as much as they can in the city of blood and silver - a Nord and a Dunmer roll into town with the mother of all bad deals. Always read the fine print.

    This story starts about a year before the events of the game and will continue through the timeline and the DLCs. Canon-compliant(ish). Narration is in 3rd person limited; the protagonist is not the Dragonborn.

    Please note: content warnings applied to individual chapters.
    Updates roughly once a week for the foreseeable future.

    With deep gratitude to efmrider for her keen beta-ing eyes and support

    Summary

    Something I have always wanted to do was write in the worlds of Skyrim and Fallout. This is my first attempt, if not my first attempt at writing, since I make my living doing this. The Dragonborn is dead, and Kyne searches the multiverse for a replacment, finding Nora, the Sole Survivor and now president of the Commonwealth. She spirits the woman to Tamriel, where she must learn a new way of fighting, and the magic of the land. But the alliance she has left behind is looking for her, turning massive power plants and teleportation technology to seeing through the dimensional barrier, and hopefully returning their beloved leader to her home.
    It follows a modified storyline from my heavily modded games. Some of the characters come from stand alone follower mods, others from the very good Interesting NPCs mods for both games. I have made changes to the world to reflect what I thought Skyrim would truly be. A land of large medieval cities in the thousands, with many more small farming villages. And the expanse one would see in a huge kingdom on a large continent. I still not sure I got it right, but more than a week from Whiterun to Dawnstar by horse comes closer to that vision.

    Summary

    Clutching the box of his belongings to his chest, Rulindil stepped out into the sun beneath the towering buildings that surrounded him. The spring wind tickled against his clammy skin, the little kiss of chill reinvigorating some part of his soul that had remained lost in the shadows of his breakdown.

      "I don't need help."

     "You do," Hendare had insisted. "I can tell you do."

     "How?" Rulindil snarled into the receiver. "You think you know everything, don't you?"

     "I know you do because you called me."

    Summary

    As a bounty hunter, Helreca's life was fairly stable. There would always be bandits to hunt down, bringing a steady stream of coin into her pockets. As long as the gods didn't intervene, she could live like this. This life agreed with her.

    But then the nightmares started.

    Summary

    When an uncertain danger faces the College of Winterhold, involving to a mysterious blue orb, an apparition who won't tell you anything straight, and a Thalmor ambassador who may as well be a pantomime villain, the distinct lack of an incontestable hero means that everyone is going to have to agree to collaborate for once. There is no Dragonborn to save them, only Mirabelle Ervine, self-appointed leader owing to the relative apathy of pretty much everyone else. But come! you may say: the College of Winterhold is one of the oldest and most respected magical institutions yet standing in Tamriel! Oh! say I: the operative words being 'yet standing'.

    Summary

    The gods disapprove of the mortal currently destined to be the Dragonborn, so a new one is found and brought to Skyrim.

    Unfortunately, she's from a different dimension and doesn't like the sound of this whole "hero" thing. So, Akatosh gives her a deal she literally can't refuse: she gets sent to Skyrim two years before Alduin's return to prepare herself to fight the World Eater. If the original Dragonborn takes their rightful place, then she gets to go home; if not, Alduin awaits. Sounds like no big deal, right? Well, not so much. Nirn has more to offer than what a video game can show, and Rowan's right in the middle of it.

    Alternately: The destination may be your destiny, but how you get there isn't.
