    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 replacement, 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'm still not sure I got it right, but more than a week from Whiterun to Dawnstar by horse comes closer to that vision.

    Summary

    Years after the infamous Dovahkiin disappeared from Skyrim, the legend suddenly reappears. With new threats forming on the horizon and even at his side, will the Dragonborn survive long enough to save not only Skyrim, but all of Tamriel from eternal darkness?

     

    A trail of blood leading away from the bodies of the dead. A trail that led to one figure, standing still, making the white snow around him turn crimson.
    His hands were frozen around his weapons, still expecting another fight. But none came. Nothing else was out there. Just the morning birds singing their happy songs.
    His eyelids drooping and his body waving in the breeze, his body was failing him rapidly. He was dying. That much was clear.
    What wasn’t clear was if she had made it to safety. He hoped she had. He hoped she would live the rest of her life in peace. Happy.
    His knees gave out and he fell to the red snow, his frozen hands still clutching his weapons as the rising sunlight quickly faded.
    He hoped he could finally stop fighting soon.

    Summary

    After the dragons, Jenny knows the war will be next. And it is, though it isn't at all what she was expecting. She's just happy the dragon threat is (mostly) gone. But she still isn't as hardened as most of Skyrim's people, and the war hits her harder than most. Especially when she has to make most of the decisions, seeing as Ulfric and Tullius bicker like children.

    At least Vilkas seems to like her again.

    After finding herself abandoned to an unexpected fate at Helgen, a hastily-chosen alias and membership of a certain guild have more impact than Nerussa would have expected. Also I hate writing summaries.

    anyways, Lydia meets the Last Dragonborn. she's not as tall as advertised

    Summary

    The Dragonborn failed.

    Akatosh has one last chance to get it right, to stop his first born from destroying Tamriel. His savior? A college girl about to graduate, thrust into a much harsher world.

    Sent back in time to right the wrongs the Dragonborn committed, Jenny joins the Companions. When the Dragonborn finally shows up, his morals are... not what she was expecting. So of course, it falls to her to figure it out. But with the Companions being less understanding than she hoped, and the Dragonborn constantly running away when things get tough, it falls to her to save the world, even without the powers of a dragonborn. Poor Jenny.

    Summary

    So, if you look up Farkas's skill stats, they might surprise you...

    On one of my Skyrim play-throughs, I did the thing where you drop a piece of armor near Farkas and then tell him he can have it when he asks, and that makes him available as a follower... so I took Farkas with me all over Skyrim even though I'd only started the Companion's quest line.

    This is the story I thought up to go along with it as I played:

    “Farkas is intrigued when he meets a small imperial archer and is unexpectedly caught up in her adventures. As he learns more about her he soon decides he’ll do everything he can to protect her... and that promise takes him places he never imagined he’d go...”

    Summary

    Four people happened to accompany Dragonborn on his quests. Not all of those quests were about defeating the World-Eater. In fact, even that one wasn't related to the problem this particular Dragonborn was trying to solve.

    Summary

    One shots for random characters in Skyrim, some real, some original. I'll add more characters as I go along.

    There'll be characters of all races and places, so don't worry if you want to read about an Argonian or Imperial, I'll get around to writing about them at some point.

    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 3: Things are falling apart. The civil war is heating up, more and more dragons are appearing all the time, and the College of Winterhold is under threat from both within and without. With the dragonborn forced to split her time between Skyrim and Solstheim her life is quickly spiraling out of control. It’s a good thing Teldryn is willing to step into the role of responsible adult… most of the time.

    New Readers: It is not necessary to have read Acts 1 and 2 in order to understand most of what is going on in Act 3 (if you’ve played Skyrim). But I would suggest you read the “Story So Far” summary (link inside) for a quick recap of what quests have been completed and what “Cannon Divergence” includes.

    Summary

    Before he became the Dragonborn, Ragnar was many things. Thief. Mercenary. Warrior. Even as assassin. He enjoyed many things in life. Good food and alcohol. Travelling the breadth of Skyrim. The companionship of good friends. The finest weapons and armour coin could buy him. And fighting. He loved a good fight. But the one thing he enjoyed above all was the company of women. He was greedy in many ways, always desiring more than one, though more than once, he fell in love and dreamed of even more.

    This is his story.
