An Elder Scrolls Online fan fiction centered around my Orc character, Durgakh the Elf-Like, and Angof the Grave-Singer, whom I love very, very much

(you can see just as much here

Angof's StoryThere is a pattern to his life - or unlife, he supposes. A recurring variation of the same motif.
And that motif is a climb.
His very first climb, he braves when he is still a boy, small and narrow-chested, his stick-like legs bare below the knee, flashing through the grass, white save for the occasional pink blotches of nettle stings. Which he does not mind, not one bit - who do you think he is, a crybaby? Let these pesky plants burn at his skin; let the shrub branches slap and scratch at him; let the burrs latch on to the hem of his dear pelt vest, a bit too loose for his scrawny shoulders. All that he does is to keep ploughing his way up, drawing a deep gulley in his wake - like a scar carved into the green flesh of the hillside. Except that it heals a brief while later, when the grass he has trampled straightens up.
On and on he climbs, with his wispy eyebrows knotted in concentration and casting a little shadow over his eager blue eyes, which are focused, almost without blinki

and whom Durgakh and I have decided to give a bit of a redemption arc.

I'm sooo late here as well. Haha ... Anyways, it's a wonder Slopsy has survived this long with all the trouble he and Cyn get into. Many an adventurer (ie: other players in ESO) has threatened to make him into bacon. xD

Cute story and thanks for the cameo! I wish I had a string of lights for Cyn to wear in-game like he does here. That'd be fun.
