    Summary

    Death is a funny thing.

    Until, of course, it isn't. Which is most of the time, really. More like all of the time. Death isn’t great, not even close. But as a general rule, it’s only something you have to go through once. Once you’re dead, you’re dead. That’s it.


    Going from being completely and utterly dead to being, well, not is probably an upgrade. Even if you've got to save the world now. The only problem is, Gallus can't remember anything. Oblivion, his name probably isn't even Gallus.

    Summary

    Bishop has kept humanity at arms reach for as long as he can remember, never letting anyone close enough to see the real him underneath. Will a quirky Bard met by chance who's more than meets the eye be the one to finally crack the hard outer shell he's spent years hiding behind?

    Summary

    Cast out from her people for her crimes, the Forsworn Nemain somehow ends up in Helgen and meets the sworn enemy of her people, the man Madanach has sent her on a mission to kill: Ulfric Stormcloak.

    Forsworn sympathizer, hater of Nords and remorseless killer, Nemain must decide what prejudices she will cling to, as she begrudgingly begins to respect the Bear of Markarth.

    Can a heart once broken begin beating anew? Surely never for the man who slaughtered every man, woman and child of the Reach who stood against him.

    Bitter and betrayed, this is the tale of Nemain. Forsworn and Forsaken.

    Summary

    The High Queen of Skyrim should have the world at her feet, but some things even a Dragonborn can't command, such as the ravages of time, rock dust and Skooma. With her beloved husband dying, and her beloved five year old miserable, Elisif risks everything to petition the gods for a miracle. Except miracles come at a very high price...

    Summary

    The Reach is often a dangerous and unforgiving place. Over the past two decades, the Forsworn held the mantle of the thing one most wanted to avoid if one desired to live. However, times are changing. Once taking back their homeland had been their only concern, but now dragons have risen and they are more than just 'the Nord's problem.' Aithne is a proud Forsworn and Reachwoman who is trying to do what's right for her homeland. Tadion is an Altmer mage who's just trying to learn at the College of Winterhold, away from the politics of his homeland. Naturally, things get quite complicated for both of them.

    Summary

    Rather than submitting to the Inquisition when his plan to alter time fails, Gereon Alexius casts a spell to escape with Felix. Fuelled by the unstable Veil and the magister's pained desperation, the spell blows out of proportion and transports the father and son to a completely different realm, which seems to be experiencing quite a Dragon Age of its own.

    Summary

    If you want something done, you have to do it yourself.

    Sigdrifa Stormsword knows herself to be the last hope of Skyrim. Only by emulating Talos can she achieve her goals. As anything was a weapon to His hand, so must anything - even those she cares for - be a weapon to her hand.

    The storm gathers and any who oppose her will be swept away.

    Summary

    What if the Dragon Crisis never happened? Years after its bloody civil war, the province of Skyrim, ruled by a headstrong High Queen and riddled with widespread lawlesness, is a far cry from harmony. And now a new threat is on the rise—but from where, exactly, is anybody's guess.

    Summary

    While avoiding her so-called destiny as the Dragonborn, Lumen falls in with the Dark Brotherhood. Life as an assassin suits her well, but everything changes when Cicero and the Night Mother appear. (Will loosely follow the Dark Brotherhood and Main story lines with some original additions. Listener/Cicero pairing. Rated M for sound reasons.)

    Summary

    Diana could give a flying Falmer Fart about this whole 'Dragonborn' business. She's got a pocket full of coin, a mug of Riverwood ale, and that brooding cutie in the corner of the Inn glaring at her like her very existence offends him on a personal level isn't bad to look at.

    Follow the (mis)adventures of Diana, a crazy, lazy, coin- and ale-driven Imperial with questionable morals and a flare for the stupid, who is a 'strong, independent woman who don't need no companion'. Enter Bishop, a secretive, private, and broody feller who seems determined to stick around and watch the whole thing go down in flames. The two are both young, dumb, immature, and in way over their heads. How long before they fly too close to the sun?

    Summary

    Based loosely on the book "The Bear of Markarth", this provides a backstory for what really happened, how Ulfric Stormcloak came to rule Markarth (albeit for a short time), the origins of the Forsworn, and much more. It mainly focuses on Ulfric's siege on the city of Clochdyn, the Reachman name for Markarth, and how Madanach and the Forsworn became who they are.

    This does not paint a pretty picture in the least of Ulfric, so Stormcloaks beware.

    Summary

    She is made of fire.

    Bright, warm, mercurial.

    Wanderlust and compassion fuel her flames as she blazes her own trail through time and legends, a beacon of hope in dark days, though her stubbornness and selflessness could very well result in her burning herself out.

    He is made of stone.

    Adamantine, stiff, cold.

    But, deep down, at his core, there is something precious hidden within that unfeeling, indifferent rock, waiting for someone to expose it to the light of day, to appreciate its existence and to shape it into something even more beautiful.

    Together, they create something indescribable. It is not perfect, but there is beauty in imperfection.

    But as is the case with most anything, very little ever comes to anyone easily - much less something as complex as love.

    Summary

    Skyrim's at peace and the Dragonborn's hung up her adventuring gear to take care of her little girl and be Queen. The Companions meanwhile are suffering a little - peace means less banditry, a free Reach means no trouble there and a place for rogue mages to go study legitimately, and they can only point Cicero at wildlife for so long before he becomes bored. So when a job comes up in the Pale to look into a crypt that might be being used for arcane rites, Eola's only too happy to point him at the foe and let him get on with it, little realising Dimhollow Crypt contains far more than just beasts...

    Summary

    Dragons may signify the world's end but as far as Elisif's concerned, her world ended well before that when Ulfric Stormcloak murdered her husband. So it is that no one's more surprised than her when a dragon attack on Solitude reveals that there's more to the High Queen in waiting than anyone suspected.
