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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Who are both Dibella worshippers? Onyx and Serana? or Onyx and Ysmir? or Ahkari?
I'll remember that. xD
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.
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!
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.
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!
