Several weeks later. The citizens of the Imperial City were bathing in warm sunlight and enjoying a warm breeze. None could have wished for a better day to walk outside or go shopping. For Serane Dren it was a perfect day in a very special way.
She sat on a table's edge in a tavern, which was almost empty at this time of day, counting out a couple of regular customers. Serane was brushing her long reddish hair with her hand when Heathcliff entered the tavern. A happy smile brightened the young dunmer girl's beautiful face when Heathcliff made his way to her.
"Hello, sweetheart", he said, stopping before Serana and taking a gent
Ambivalence - Part 15Anothir arrived in Cheydinhal at dusk. It was a quaint little establishment, and fairly quiet. She admitted it was a bit too chilly over here for her tastes, but she enjoyed it anyhow; she needed a change of scenery. This was her last stop before the big enrollment to the Arcane University.Ambivalence - Part 158 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
She had every intention of tackling whatever task she was given as if to give the last testament to her existence. Despite the change of scenery and people, she still had a heavy heart as she ambled carelessly about the new town. She stifled small sobs as she failed miserably to stop thinking of Ocato.
She was so lost and out of it, she didn't even know
Ambivalence - Part 14"Pretty!" Anothir screamed, sitting up in the bed; her eyes wild with fright. She pawed around on the blanket looking for something, anything familiar. She found her Lordis plush. She hugged the stuffed cotton to her chest and wailed. The room was dark, and no one was in sight. Her nightmare was more than she could bear, and the stillness in the room made it all the more uncomfortable.Ambivalence - Part 148 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Hello?" she whimpered, wiping tears from her cheeks. She couldn't hear the sound of anyone in the other room, she knew where she was at, but it felt so dead and empty. The curtains were closed, the silver moved from the dining table and
Ambivalence - Part 12The palace was quiet in the afternoon. Mornings were its busiest time when the city was bustling with folks on their walks, opening shops, or laying out a misplaced complaint. Luckily Ocato had missed that morning, and the several before that. He often had at least one person a day trying to waltz into the Council room to complain about something ridiculous.Ambivalence - Part 128 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
Evenings were fairly quiet as well, save for the bantering Council members in the chamber around eight o'clock. Ocato especially hated the evenings as they always brought long tedious hours in an uncomfortable chair, listening to wealthy, shriveled, old fools try to change the world, one
Ambivalence - Part 3The sounds of crackling fire and soft voices speaking stirred Anothir from her comatose state. Her mouth felt dry and her head was spinning, and soon everything came into view once a gentle, deep voice reached her above the rest of the noises.Ambivalence - Part 31 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
"Hey," Xakkima said calmly, a slim braid in his hair falling down as he knelt. He placed a hand on the bosmer's shoulder, "It's over now..."
"What's over?" Anothir asked quietly, keeping her eyes squeezed shut from the light in the hall.
The speaking drew Martin's attention and he looked over from the woman he was seeing to. He let out a sigh of relief as he nursed the lady's injured arm.
Dovahkiin Chapter One: Heroes and CowardsWe were loaded onto the wagon with three other men. One of them was gagged. We didn't know each other's names, nor did we need to. They didn't speak much, and Haiden and I were mostly whispering amongst ourselves the entire ride. I told him about Mathias, and how he'd healed me before we continued walking.Dovahkiin Chapter One: Heroes and Cowards1 year ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

Dovahkiin Short.Tobias sauntered into the darkened underground passageway, where he'd originally underwent the transformation into werewolf. That had been what seemed like ages ago for the Dovahkiin, though in reality it was only a few months. He was to have a secret meeting with Vilkas, another werewolf who had been made second in command for the Companions by Tobias himself. It was only logical after all: Tobias was a bit of a bigot and couldn't see a woman like Aela being in charge, and Farkas wasn't exactly leader material.Dovahkiin Short.2 years ago in Flash Fiction & Vignettes More Like This

Kirkwall, evening, the Hanged Man tavern.
The tavern Messalyn Tabris came into this evening was a trash pit: dirty, crowdy, filled with worst kind of people this city had to offer. And although the young elf was more than capable of defending herself some faces she saw here gave her the creeps.
As a Warden Commander of Ferelden she was assign on special mission here, in Free Marches. She and a couple more Wardens have been here for a week already and still no sign of any messenger. To provide better secrecy they were to disguise as refugees, which among many other unpleasant things meant living in low town.

January 25th, 2012. I move with a fluidity that water would be envious of. I am aware of my brothers watching me from on high. My eyes adjust themselves against glare from a distant window and I am able to keep track of my target. He glows reassuringly against the darkness of the crowd, a golden beacon drawing my blade closer with every step. One of my brothers whistles softly, and my ears catch it through the hum of the throng below. I scan the crowd and spot the red figures. Just out of my reach. I make a signal with my left hand, clear and high, then set myself after the golden man.
I hear three clear whooshing sounds followed by screams.

Something about Australia.
It has been a curiosity of mine for a good long while now; I had merely forgotten about it until he suddenly popped up. They are bushy, just like Art'ur's. Perhaps not quite as thick, but still noticeable to an extent that they stick out on his face. Et though his hair is darker than l'Angleterre, their eyes glimmer beautifully alike. Vert. Vert like the fields. Vert like an emerald. Vert like the greedy monster within me that yearns to get closer to him, simply because of their similar appearance.
Along with resembling l'Angleterre, he unfortunately bares a resemblance to l'Amérique; poor, unfortunate boy. T

The five vile toxins that exist with mirth.
The poison of envy,
With the greenest of eyes.
The poison of hate,
Which kills and Destroys.
The poison of lust,
Which burns and jumps.
The poison of lies,
Which rots and slumps.
But the one of these poisons,
Which I hate the most,
The last poison left,
The one about whom we all boast:
The poison of love,
Which beheads and demeans,
But still it's the poison,
Of everyone's dreams.

"That dream," she whimpered, looking around the room. It was morning, and she was late getting up. With a sniffle, she dropped the collar of her white shirt and peered at an old scar near her left shoulder. She lightly pressed her fingers over it before grimacing and covering it up once more.
"I haven't had that one in a long time," she breathed, sliding off of the bed. Four years had passed since then, and nearly a year since the last time she had th

I cant say I wasnt surprised. But, then again, Sheogorath is good at that surprising people, I mean. When you expect Him to act serious, He prattles on about inanities. When you expect Him to be light-hearted, He threatens to dismember you. And when you finally expect Him to make good on all the threats Hes made He just laughs and pats you on the back.
In my time spent here in the Shivering Isles, Ive learned many things. But chief among them is this: dont expect anything from Sheogorath; youll always be disappointed.

In the earliest of days, in a time when the world was still raw, Sheogorath decided to walk amongst the mortals. He donned his guise of Gentleman With a Cane, and moved from place to place without being recognized. After eleven days and eleven nights, Sheogorath decided that life among mortals was even more boring than his otherworldly existence.
"What can I do to make their lives more interesting?" he said to himself. At that same moment, a young woman nearby commented wistfully to herself, "The sounds of the birds are so beautiful."
Sheogorath silently agreed with her. Mortals could not make the beautiful and ins

Angela walked hazely around the silent graves, leaning down periodically to wipe the dust away from the names. One grave caught her eye and she kneeled down beside it, frowning a bit as she saw the name of a very old friend. "Has it been so long ago?" She licked her finger wiping away the date of death; 1989. She only knew Abby for a few years during elementary school, but they were best friends. Abby never made fun of me or ignored me. She even gave me that small necklace with a pretty flower on it.

The worn out roads of Cyrodiil seemed to stretch on forever. They weaved through towns, cut through forests and over rivers, rolled over the hill ridden plains of the west and even found their ways through the peaks of the mountain ranges.
Tessa rolled her head, snapping out all the kinks that were in her neck, and gasped sharply when one broke rather stiffly. She rubbed her neck over the spot of mild discomfort and urged her horse on down the jagged path. She was so sick of travelling she didn't even turn to gaze at the Lake Rumare from the mountain peak she was on. She was certain it would have been a lovely sight, if she hadn't already se

"Oh gosh, Bou", said Rellam. He and Bou were sitting on a brick fence, in the city, patrolling. Or at least they were supposed to. It was the next day after Rellam had left home. He had returned for the night and left early in the morning again.
The day was sunny and warm, as usual, but it was also slightly raining. Not even raining, the sky only shed a little drops.
Rellam wiped raindrops from his grey face. "I just yelled that all to father." He covered his face in his hands. "I'm such an idiot."
Bou, who had been with his elven friend from the very morning, was sitting next to him, leaning on his longsword with his hands.
