    Summary

    Solitude, Skyrim, early 4E 201. Jarl Ulfric Stormcloak kills High King Torygg in what he and his supporters claim was a fair duel. This sets of a chain of events that not only threaten to destroy Skyrim, but all of Tamriel; perhaps even all of reality. With Ulfric's actions, an ancient prophecy is completed, and Alduin World-Eater, wayward child of Akatosh, returns to terroize mortal-kind. The Nords can only hold onto one hope... that the prophecised Last Dragonborn will rise to slay Him before He devours the world.

    However, the young half-elf who the gods reveal to be the Last Dragonborn has so much more to deal with than Alduin. As she traverses Skyrim to understand her destiny, she has to contend with the brutal civil war that's cut its own bloody swathe across the northern reaches of the Empire, and come to terms with the ghosts of her past.

    Summary

    The Dragonborn asked for a truce. Ulfric Stormcloak asked for her hand in return. Neither of them knew what they were getting into.

    A whole lot of politics, drama, and a backstory involving the Great War and the Aldmeri Dominion, that's what.

    Chapter 21 posted: The Young Blades in Cidhna Mine, Where's the Staff of Magnus? And Whiterun is still under Siege.

    Summary

    Also, he was hilarious to watch. He never broke face, it was all in how his eyes shifted and skittered. How they rolled up in annoyance each time Erik would bound up to him and throw his arm around his big shoulders and be all jovial and shit and he would just sit there and silently tolerate it, like a big grumpy dog. It was endearing, really.

But now, he is known to all as the Dragonborn, a hero of immense proportions tasked with preventing the end of the world. Desperately wanted by both sides in the Civil War, no one knows what Karsten fights for save for Karsten himself.

    Skyrim, 4E 202. Alduin the World-Eater has been vanquished. High Queen Elisif sits on the throne, and the Stormcloak rebellion is no more.

A band of unlikely heroes must now take up arms and unravel a web of ancient magic, prophecy, and deceit...before Skyrim and the rest of Tamriel is lost forever.

    Summary

    Finding herself waking the hour of her execution is not the way Lilyah expected her first full day in Skyrim to go. Being unintentionally saved by what she thought was a winged harbinger of death was also not something she would have guessed to happen either. This is the tale of a Bosmer slave escaping her masters to start over and finds that starting over comes with conditions... namely being the famed Dragonborn and a few other surprising things. If love happens to mess things up it is neither here nor there.

    Tags will be added if needed. I do not own Skyrim, only Lilyah is my creation. Chapters will also be tagged with warnings if needed.

    Summary

    Disclaimer: I DO NOT own any original characters. BETHESDA in all its glory thought these people up. This is just my personal fantasy and my take on how things should go.
    Comments are awesome as I am just getting into this kind of thing.

    Summary

    From the moment he laid eyes on her, Farkas new she was something special. He was attracted to her immediately, not just her pretty looks, but the fierce nature she seemed to embody. Asking her to seek out the Companions, his family, had been instinctual... hoping he'd see more of her. However, he didn't expect the easy friendship they fell into, nor her understand and accepting nature. He feels blessed to know her, but also knows she is far out of his league. He might not be as stupid as people like to think, but Farkas knows where his talents lie. He's not good with words, and stumbles over what to say to her. His twin brother has no such problems, and he knows Vilkas is a better man than he is... however, just because it's what he believes, doesn't mean she feels the same. Perhaps the captivating woman has an opinion of her own, one that seems quite at odds with what others think of him.

    Summary

    Sura, a young Khajiit, has lived most of her life in Whiterun. Her past is a mystery to her. The only memory she holds is an old, worn out pendant. The biggest wish she has: to find out where she comes from and where she belongs. She loves a Nord, a proud member of the Companions but is too shy and timid to confess her feelings to him. And then life takes a brutal turn and she begins to understand what's important and what's worth fighting for.

    Another Khajiit arrives in Whiterun, carrying a similar necklace. He seeks revenge but becomes a reluctant hero of the land. A stubborn Nord woman is shoved into his life against his will. Lydia, the niece of Jarl Balgruuf is placed as his housecarl. They hate, they bicker, they argue. He is stubborn and often hateful, but she is persistent and patient and kind. And little by little, he begins to see her as a friend and maybe even something more.
