Drive
It's night and you're going home, like you've done so many times before. Except that this time it's different - you won't come back here again, and you've packed your old life into your car. It's kind of an end of an era.
You start the car and take the one last glance at your old home in the rearview mirror. Then you finally put the car in gear and start driving. You notice that Coldplay's Viva la vida plays on the radio - a good one, so you turn up the volume.
As you drive on the highway, the sounds of the engine and the tyres cover the music but the song playing at the moment isn't that good anyways. In fact, you put the radio off, because you prefer to listen to the background noise, you've always found it somewhat relaxing. You often fell asleep while listening to it, when your father drove and you were the passenger. But now you're the one driving.
The miles go by fast - the years have passed fast, too. You remember the first journey; when you drove into the opposite direct

Mirage vol II - Chapter 20 (Final chapter)
Linnea kept pushing forward, intending to go to North, as far from the settlements as possible, like she had promised to General Virchow. Her muscles were aching and the fever made her feel dizzy and weak. She was shivering from cold and every breath she took hurt her sore throat and ached in her lungs. She had not eaten or drunk anything for a great while; she had totally lost her appetite but she wished she had understood to take something to drink with her to this journey.
The bright sunlight made her head hurt. She had lost track of time and she did not know how long she had been wandering but she was certain that the transition would take place soon, thus she forced herself to keep on walking, despite her exhaustion.

"I didn't mean him with what I just said, Miss Frey..."
"...A red-haired lass, a farmer's daughter from Winds Keep - and an alchemist, just like your grandmother was. Could it have been any more obvious that you’re my niece?"

Mirage vol II - Chapter 19
"I am a murderer...I killed the hero of Daggerfall, the woman who saved the whole Glenumbra," General Alexandr Virchow thought - even though he knew that she had brought her fate upon herself with her own actions - as he put the sword down, next to her lifeless body.
Indeed he was a professional killer for Daggerfall Covenant. He had taken several lives during his military career - but the people that had met their end by his hand had been his enemies. However, killing a friend - the woman who had saved his life and who had been his son's loved one - was an extremely agonising experience for him. He would never forget how she had taken the last glance at him before she had lost her consciousness; the confused and innocent look in her green eyes would haunt him forever.
He stared at his shaking, blood-stained hands; he also shivered from cold, since he had stood out in the pouring rain when he had waited for her to return. "Oh dear Gods, how am I going to tell my son what happ

Mirage vol II - Chapter 18
She told him her whole story - what she remembered of it - including the visits to Coldharbour due to the missions of the Prophet and the other remaining members of the Five Companions. She felt it somehow relieving to share her deepest secrets with someone before she would have to leave Nirn again; it did not matter to her anymore if she would be held insane. She would never have imagined that she would reveal those things to a necromancer - but it did not concern her, since she trusted him and considered him to be on her side in the battle against Molag Bal and the darkness threatening Glenumbra and the whole Tamriel.
He appeared to be surprised by what he had found out about her but if he thought that she was out of her mind, he hid it extremely well. He remained silent for some time; then he finally replied her, asking: "You said that those members of the Five Companions, Lyris and that...Prophet live near Daggerfall - where exactly in there?" "Why do you want to know that?"

Mirage vol II - chapter 17
"Do you know how to ride?" General Virchow asked Linnea. "I don't know...I don't remember if I've learnt to ride," she replied honestly, not even bothering to think whether her answer sounded weird. He was silent for a while, maybe because of her strange reply, but then decided: "Alright. I think it's the best option that we ride with the same horse, then. I'll give you the reins, it's easier that way - I shouldn't use the broken limb for anything, I know. And don't worry, I'll help you out if needed." Then he said to the horseman: "Give us a calm-natured and strong horse that can carry two."
It was still evening when they left Camlorn behind and started their journey to Cath Bedraud, the ancient cemetery where they would face Angof the Gravesinger, the leader of the Bloodthorn Cult. The skies were broken; the clouds partially hid the stars and the Moons, and the winds started to strengthen. Fortunately, despite the clouds, the Moons shed enough light and there were some light posts wi

Mirage vol II - Chapter 16
Linnea fell onto her knees exhausted, next to lifeless Faolchu. She had not cast such a strong healing spell ever before, and it had totally drained all of her energy and magicka. The void in her mind left by the Daedric visit in there was soon filled with the flood of her own thoughts. The flames had faded. It was over. Faolchu was dead, and she was alive and mostly unharmed - except that he had bitten her before he had died. She would get lycanthropy and turn into a werewolf. Or rather, because everyone who had gotten bitten would be eliminated, she would die and pass on to Aetherius. Except that it would not happen either, since her soul was in Coldharbour - she would be drawn into that Plane of Oblivion and become Molag Bal's prisoner again. Or maybe all this was only a bad dream, from which she would soon wake up like she had woken up from her nightmares so many times before.
Darien's voice forced her to focus on the world surrounding her again. "Linnea! By the Eight, you're alive

Linnea was lying on the bed, under the thick blanket and she felt so safe and content; it was warm and comfortable there, and his presence soothed her. They lay there together, like they always did in the mornings when he was not on duty. She loved how things were now like they had always been - except that his scent was different. Usually he did not wear any fragrance. She said to him drowsily, still drifting in her dream world: "Good morning, Dorian, dear."


"Oh, good morning to you, too, dear, but actually it's Darien, not Dorian," he corrected her sleepily, having just woken up. As she opened her eyes, she saw that she was not at home but in a Lion Guard tent, instead - and then she noticed that she had woken up in the same bed with Captain Gautier. "Oh, dear Gods, you're not Aleksei!" she cried out shocked and said to herself desperately: "Oh Gods...what have I done?" She could not remember well what had happened during the last night. She recalled hav

Mirage - Heart's Day special
This is an additional chapter to my Elder Scrolls Online fan fiction story Mirage; this is the sequel to the chapter "Old Life festival", and these both chapters contain major spoilers to Mirage. So, if you are reading the story, I recommend you to finish reading it (vol I and vol II) before reading these additional chapters.

Officer Aleksei Virchow gathered his remaining strength to make the last push; he would be running out of stamina soon. He dealt the final blow with his sword, trying to disarm his opponent in the duel. He succeeded in getting his opponent to drop his weapon - but soon after that he felt how his own sword fell from his shaking hands and he heard the clang caused by the both blades hitting the ground almost simultaneously.
"I...surrender...I couldn't take another round...and...I don't want to...collapse from exhaustion in front of my troops. You're the winner," his opponen

Mirage vol II - Chapter 14
Linnea was awoken by someone's presence in her tent; having noticed the unexpected intruder, she instinctively prepared to cast a spell to protect herself from the possible enemy. Even though she usually got up extremely slowly, this time the adrenaline rush caused by the random person in her tent chased away her tiredness quickly. As she opened her eyes, she saw Mrs. Virchow, the General's wife, standing in front of her. "I hope you slept well. I'm sorry that I had to wake you up but it's afternoon already," she greeted her. Linnea got up and replied: "Oh, no problem. It's great that you woke me up, so that I'll have time to prepare for the Duke's arrival and the meeting. I think he's going to come here today." "Well, actually the Duke arrived already this morning, and the meeting is starting right now - my husband sent me to get you there," she corrected her. It took Linnea some time to realise what she had said - and then she quickly started to tidy herself up a bit. "Here, I though

Old Life Festival
Author's notes: Happy Old and New life festival to you, readers and Elder Scrolls fans! This chapter contains spoilers to my Elder Scrolls Online fan fiction story Mirage; however, I think you can read this, even if you haven't read or aren't planning to read my fan fiction story itself. If you don't want to find out about its events before you have finished reading it, I suggest you to wait until you have read Mirage vol II, before reading this.

"Happy Old Life festival, sir!" the guards said to Aleksei Virchow, an officer of the Daggerfall City Guard, as he passed them by. He was walking from Captain Aresin's office towards the part of the castle where his own residence was; earlier in the morning, he had been helping the Captain with some paperwork that needed to be finished. He greeted the guards back formally but politely - he wondered how in Oblivion it had occurred to someone to wish hi

Mirage vol II - Chapter 13
The sea was freezing but fortunately the water was deep enough, thus Linnea had survived the long fall from the cliff. She had held her breath for a rather long time; she felt the burning sensation in her chest and she had to fight hard to resist the urge to inhale, since she was still submerged. She did not know how long the distance back to the surface would be - in fact, due to the darkness and other things, she was not sure in which direction the surface was but she would have to reach it soon, if she wished to survive. In the wrong way, at the seafloor, she could imagine the cruel landscapes of Coldharbour waiting for her, and the thought of that chilled her more than the cold water did.
The lack of air started to fade her consciousness - and then, in the darkness, she saw a faint star that twinkled in the night sky. She knew that she should swim towards it, since it would show her the way up; as she kept on swimming to its direction, it grew larger and its light became brighter.
