The Skyrim world of "Onyx". After Alduin was banished, this ebony Dragonborn still wanders the hostile lands searching. Killing. Shouting. Purging. Defining his presence in both cruelty and grace. But a young Khajiit will forever change how he looks at things; the Ebony Dragon discovers something far more potent than most of his endeavors.

Part II: Skyrim Chronicles: Ma'Roken II

Very interesting. so Ohmes and Dagi Rahts both look more elvish than not? coolio.

I do indeedy like the interactions between Onyx and Kharjo. Their ..would it be bickering? was some of the most fun I've seen.

also like watching the developing relationship between Akhari and Onyx, 

and oh. little Ma'Roken breaks my heart.

That's what I gathered with the research I did. Least my take on it. Could just be Ma'Roken's mother though since she is light skinned. 

LOL. The two never stop. It's even worse when Serana is in the mix! xD 

I will one day write about Ahkari and Onyx's time together. I seem to be backtracking with something I titled "Chronicles" lol. 

Ma'Roken's passing is something that actually changed Onyx and a little girl's life--as well the entire brigade of Honorhall Orphanage. Grelod would have been kindly killed regardless though.

even the ball of sunshine Telki is usually had to take Grelod out.


Though she used the time honored method of smothering the old bat with a pillow.

and she *did* try to get her ousted the right way, first.

Lovely tale so far, very interested in seeing how it goes :)

Thank you! I'm hoping it will have the weight I want it to have when it is done.

Sad Fluttershy It's like the Tamriel Make a Wish Foundation. 

Always interesting to see Onyx pre-Miraak. And pre-Serana. He certainly put his foot in his mouth a couple of times there. Onyx, don't go telling Dominion supporters that there are Nine Divines! Nucklehead! 

I'd like a little more description on the various Khajiits. I was having a bit of trouble keeping them straight. Also, I wanted to know more about what Ahkari looked like as an Ohmer-Raht.

I just did a bit of an overhaul. :P Take a gander! And you wanted to have more description on Ahkari so you can have more girl crush? Or are you interested in all the women that Onyx has slept with to see if he is worthy to have a night with your Ysmir? xD 

There was a moment I forgot that he isn't a vampire lord so I had to do a minor edit. He doesn't even have his crossbow yet. But he still has some of his rather outspoken self, which is what gets him at trouble at times. He doesn't give much care for what the Thalmor thinks about his beliefs, but he does care about this group of Khajiits far more than he does with any group so far; well, he does care about the Companions at this point. And like I said, this little 'Make a Wish Foundation' will have a very very potent affect on him. 

A 'bit' of a spoiler, Kodlak will be in this story.

Anti Emo I need less vague spots in my internal reading movie.

They're both something of Dibella worshipers, honestly. 

Kodlak! Yay! ^_^

...So is he a werewolf then?

He is definitely a werewolf. Aside from a 'little' backstory, Kodlak is just about 'in-game' accurate. You will get insight on his rapport with Onyx. I had the need to write this before I continue to work on Frozen Skyrim and Dragon Kin because it has sentimental value and it has a few good peak on Onyx's past. 

Who are both Dibella worshippers? Onyx and Serana? or Onyx and Ysmir? or Ahkari? 

:P I'll remember that. xD

It's always nice to work out the relationships between characters. I've been considering writing a drabble of when Ysmir met Vile, just because you have me thinking about it so much. Hopefully Kodlak won't come up in conversation, because who knows how Onyx will react to knowing that he's alive somewhere. Or do just to twist him up. It might convince Ysmir to give him a chance. "Kodlak thought you were alright?....Well...."

Onyx and Ysmir. Not in the conventional Bunkhouse way, mind, but both of their romantic relationships have more to do with Dibella than Mara, that's for sure. Also, Onyx has that quirky Lady Stone thing and Ysmir is something of an amateur artist--in her journals, where people can't see, at least.

Lover Stone, though The Lady Stone could always be a place where Onyx can find a reason to say 'hi' to once in a while. The Lover Stone is just a place where something significant happened. He isn't exactly talking to the stone but to 'someone'. I'd agree with their romantic relationships having more to do with Dibella. Serana is definitely not keen on Mara, or at least her amulet but she doesn't mind sharing a few nights of 'romantic' activity with Onyx. They kind of have a love hate relationship as well, but they're not entirely as bad as Miraak and Ysmir, at least not in the beginning. They both also have the same idea of an 'open' relationship; which I think is just convenience because they don't want to be tied down or committed. 

Kodlak has had his high and low opinions on Onyx. The thing is he is one of the few that really understands Onyx's lack of good role models in the past. 

AND DO IT! DO IT! I would totally love that! I would love to read Ysmir and Vile's interaction, after all, Vile is one of my favorite Princes!

Whoops. My mistake. :p

Is it Serana, or someone I haven't "met" yet? Did those two always have a love-hate relationship, or just after Onyx went all broody on her? 

Ysmir IS tied down--having that many children, she can't not be. She just doesn't want to put all her eggs in one basket again and be devastated when they all break. She doesn't know if she can remain sane if she went through the kind of heartbreak she had when Ralof died. Wow, look at that. The actual reason for Ysmir's commitment issues! Well, the biggest one. Her aversion to marriage is simply because of her first one, and she was sort of iffy on it before that, since her mom was being "married" to another Young One as a reward when she decided it was time to escape. Ysmir can't forgive Mara, either. Surely if the Goddess of Love and Family was as benevolent as everyone says, she would have struck Ysmir's husband dead at the alter when he married a fourteen year old. 

Good Guy Kodlak looks past your issues. 

Lol. I just might.

Technically we'll never 'meet' that person. You shall see. =) More of Onyx's humanity more or less.

Well, heart wise she isn't tied; heart break or trauma from the first marriage, she has commitment issues for sure and it is shaken, tested, and at times poisoned by the fact that she has feelings for the one man she isn't supposed to. The one "man" who mirrors some of Alduin's atrocity--a man she was meant to destroy, perhaps. Such a strange and yet delicious tangled webs they are in; all of them. 

And amongst all that chaos, there is that one person who will always have a positive influence. Kodlak just fits the bill for al to of the Dragonborns who are troubled. 

can't wait to read it then!

That's better. :) Lots of nice, non-vague descriptions.
