    Summary

    Lein, a half-Skaal half Nord, is made thane of Markarth and acquires Vlindrel Hall, and a housecarl. Argis has had a tough start in life, but things have been looking up since he joined the Markarth Guard, and then the Jarl's Guard. Then he is assigned to Lein, a white-haired, 5'7" mage with mismatching eyes and a propensity for nearly getting killed. Lein feels an immediate attraction to the huge, half-blind housecarl, but has no idea if Argis is even into men. Journeying from Markarth to Windstad Manor for Valdimar's upcoming wedding, the two forge a friendship that begins to blossom into something else as time passes and they make their tracks in the snow.
    Buckle up for dragons, necromancers, hagravens, Dragonborn shouting, pining, friendship, angst, and some eventual smut.

    Summary

    After defeating Alduin and grieving over the deaths of Risorallen and Lydia, Elsebet Dragonslayer finds herself in Riften, following the footsteps of the stranger that helped her escape Cidna Mine. From there she joins the Thieves Guild, though she doesn’t feel like one of them, at first. Then she catches the eye of an Imperial thief by the name of Rune, who is the nicest thief she’d ever met.

    Conspiracy runs through the Guild when Elsebet completes a job at Goldenglow Estate, leading to mistrust between the Guild members, new and old. With love, betrayal, and the return of her father, Elsebet finds herself in the middle of everything as the past makes itself known, threatening her position and her new family.

    Someone wants the Guild destroyed, and Elsebet will do her best to make sure that doesn’t happen.

    ~ Follows the Thieves Guild Questline ~

    Summary

    “Yes, your head hurts and you don’t remember where you are. I’m guessing you also don’t remember coming in here and blathering incoherently about marriage or a goat. Which means you don’t remember losing your temper and throwing trash all over the temple.” the woman drawled to her without compassion as she shied away from the pain her loud words caused to her hangovered self.

    She blinked a few times, getting used to the light little by little, she noticed the rather odd stone-work of the walls, floor and ceiling, then she noticed the woman standing to her side in a hooded brown robe that she knew… from a game. Then her words rushed to her head becoming painfully familiar, her face contorted in disbelief.

    This has to be a dream…

     

    The saying 'Be careful what you wish for' couldn't be more appropriate to Khalida's situation.

    After a birthday party and getting drunk while playing Skyrim, she finds herself in Mundus.

    Fucking Daedric Princess!!!

    Summary

    "...and you won't fall off a mountain like in Markarth."

    Karliah falls off a mountain. In Markarth. That's literally it. (Takes place before Mercer did his thing, so Gallus is alive.)

    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

    Best case scenario, Kiera showed up within the next two minutes and whisked her off to safety.

    Worst case scenario, Ondolemar figured out she was the Dragonborn and kidnapped her and then the Thalmor murdered her for setting fire to their embassy and then Alduin ate the world.

    Or, Kiera drops Alea off in Understone Keep to go murder someone, and Alea has the misfortune of encountering our favorite Thalmor.

    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

    An innocent children's question sent him on a social down memory lane.

    In a way his love was childish. A child's hope that if he loved her enough, she would love him.

    He knew he was her second love. Just as he knew she would rather be gazing into someone's else's eyes. And it was okay. He was her sword and shield. He loved her and would rather play second string to her heart than watch her from afar.

    An Argis the Bulwark/ Female Bosmer Dovahkiin romance story. Also a past! Vilkas/ F Dragonborn relationship.

    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.

    Summary

    Ehlnofey is an excellent specimen, a superiorly bred High Elf who has lived a life of sheltered education. She was sent to Skyrim to be bred with Ondolemar, but somehow things went terribly wrong. In a whirlwind of only a few days, she finds herself alone and traumatized in a harsh land with no means of getting to her new home.

    Hadvar is a typical Nord soldier living the typical Skyrim life. Then the dragon attacks Helgen, but combat is still combat and he survives. He just isn't sure how he ended up having to escort some important High Elf across Skyrim in the process, especially one who can't even fight.

    Their journey is one of racism and growth, love and duty, cruelty and kindness.

    And then there's the small matter of her becoming possessed.

    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 spun around on her heels and left in a hurry to go somewhere. Unusual for her. But what I couldn't understand was why I wanted her to stay.
    *A series of one-shots about Moth gro-Bagol, the Orsimer blacksmith from Markarth and the Altmer dragonborn Nelcara.*

    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

    If she’d had a choice, she would have asked for a cat familiar. Or a bunny. Something less murder-y.

    Summary

    Another snippet of the unlikely love story between Ondolemar and his personal pain-in-the-neck, an ever-cheerful Redguard that has managed to awaken his soft side. And it is precisely this soft side that does not let him rest, not allowing him to continue insulting and mistreating the bothersome human as a mer in his position technically should.

    Summary

    After his best friend Torvar has disappeared following a rather embarrassing drinking game with a strange man named Sam, Athis of the Companions must find him and bring him back. He is accompanied on his journey by his apprentice, a green, timid Nord recruit named Sveta, who is not only prone to blundering and sobbing, but also has an overpowering crush on her mentor. The problem is (at least, Athis keeps telling himself that it's a problem), the feeling is not exactly unrequited.

    Summary

    An ancient threat has arisen in the south and even as the oncoming darkness threatens to engulf Skyrim, fate will unite two strangers. One man who seeks a purpose in life, while the other strives to reclaim his lost honor. Maybe, at the turn of the tide, they will find together what they were looking for in vain on their own.

    UPDATE 31.07.2015: Today is a sad day, my friends. A couple of thousand words in I managed to delete the newest and nearly finished chapter. All attempts at recovery failed. I may have cried. Let us come together and observe a minute's silence in memory of those letters and special characters which were forever lost in this tragedy.
