Glory of the Dead by thedarknovak (2/10 | 3,856 | R)

In the wake of the death of head Whiterun guard Jon Stilinski, the newly orphaned Stiles has no where else to go. Sure he could stay with Melissa, but he wants to escape he wants to see Skyrim. So he goes to the only place he could think of. He goes to Jorrvaskr, the same place his best friend Scott had gone to a year prior. He wants to make his father proud, he wants to become an honorable warrior and make it to Sovngarde. Then he thinks why would the Companions ever want a slim half Breton as an prestigious warrior of their ranks.

Or when Stiles joins the Companions

Or when Stiles was given a choice of being given the blood of the wolf, but the choice is made for him when something terrible happens to him. Stiles struggles accepting that he’d now be joining the eternal hunt.

Will Stiles or Derek address the very apparent feelings both of them share for each other? Will Stiles find a way for Derek and him to make it to Sovngarde?

So here begins the Adventure of Stiles Stilinski, hero, werewolf, mate. The dragonborn has a run for his money with Stiles around.

To Be Okay by saruma_aki (½ | 4,001 | PG13)

Bullying gone to far quite literally drives Stiles out of town.

The snapshots of Stiles Stilinski’s life and how one Derek Hale fit into it.

Angles Fall (Without You Here) by Blue_Equinox_2 (1/1 | 1,920 | G)

There are some nights when Stiles can’t sleep, when his condition gets the better of him. Derek is always there to help.

You don’t get to ignore Stiles Stilinski. by Mareridt (1/1 | 4,690 | NC17)

He wondered if they ever saw his messages, if they ignored him on purpose being the everall asshole of a lifetime or if they had been busy.
Maybe he did have a little idea to get an answer out of them, didn’t he?
So that was basically how Stiles found himself getting up, grabbing a marker from the desk and walking up in front of the mirror in the bathroom. With an evil cackle, he drew a giant penis on his forehead, handling every single detail with a steady hand. No one could ignore Stiles Stilinski for so long, not if they wanted to keep their sanity.

It’s just the begining and it’s totally awesome by lightsfillthesky (1/1 | 1,488 | PG130

Because what if things ended a bit different?

Scott, a lost traveler, discovers a strange love affair between a werewolf and a boy

My Stupid Birthday by briewinchester (1/1 | 1,400 | PG13)

It’s Stiles’ 18th birthday. Today was the day he’d been waiting two years for only to find out that Derek forgot his birthday. 

Drown Me with Kisses by LadySlytherin (1/1 | 19,428 | NC17)

When a rusalka in the preserve nearly kills Stiles with a kiss, Stiles is in grave danger any time he’s near a source of water - not just rivers, lakes, and oceans, but pools, bathtubs, the shower, a sink full of water - you put water in it, and it could probably kill Stiles now. Deaton’s advice? Break the rusalka’s magic with a kiss of opposite power - love to beat out death.

i guess this counts as au? but i’ve been thinking up ideas for a much longer version of skyrim’s mq. not a total rewrite just an expansion of a sort that will never be, but i like to imagine the idea. enjoy this ramble.

- the beginning is mostly the same up until the first alduin battle. what is different is there are whispering of a revival of a dragon cult. some people think joining alduin could spare them, some are paranoid of living in a similar age as their ancestors, and some are just accepting doom.

-  after alduin is defeated for the first time and paarthurnax quest comes along, the main quest splits into two storylines, which is defeating alduin with just the blades or with just paarthurnax.

- there’s a lot more quests after alduin’s first defeat, which make the final battle worth the wait instead of just jumping right to getting odahviing and rushing to sovngarde. most of these quests surround the rise in dragon cultists that are not draugr but people in skyrim who have recreated the cult to serve alduin, and how that new cult is creating more turmoil in skyrim in order to hopefully have the dragonborn focus on that instead, giving alduin some time in sovngarde. so the dragonborn and paarthurnax/the blades have to prevent this new cult from not only spreading but creating havoc, but plan their final attack on alduin.

- the new dragon cult connects to the civil war, as the cult plans to kill elisif, whose death would make skyrim finally crumble under the instability of the civil war. and if the civil war was taken care of beforehand, they’ll still attempt assassination, as skyrim would still be healing from the war and having her die would weaken the province anyways.

- esbern still does the dragon hunting quests and arngeir does the word wall quests, but (depending on choice) delphine and paarthurnax have specific character related personal quests. they aren’t required for the main quest, but they’re for story reasons and if the dragonborn wants to get to know them more.

- the endings are different. the dragonborn always appears at the throat of the world, but if they did the blades version of the storyline they will end outside of sky haven temple with the blades. if they did the story with paarthurnax, it will end with the dragonborn and paarthurnax on the throat of the world with all the dragons.

In her 29th summer of life, Fjori the huntress met the warlord Holgeir on the field of battle. None remember what they fought over, for their love to come was so great it overshadowed all rivalries or disputes. They fought to a standstill, as their followers looked on - till her sword broke his axe and his shield dulled her blade and all could see that they were equals.

As the Eagle finds its mates, so too did Fjori find hers in Holgeir, and a time of peace came to the clans of the forest. But as the summer’s warmth gives way to winter’s chill, so too would this peace pass.

But the Snake came and bit Holgeir, its venom seeping deep into the wound.

A Whale greeted Fjori’s view as she came over the snow-covered mountains to the coast.

She obtained an elixir from the Akavir and returned to the forest in haste.

Though Holgeir could smell the winds of Sovngarde, she gave him the elixir and he was cured in an instant.

But the Snake bit Fjori as she poured the last drop into Holgeir’s mouth, and fatigued from her journey, she joined the ancestors immediately.

Holgeir’s grief was such that he built a tomb and upon completion, took his own life that he might rejoin her.

- Of Fjori and Holgeir

Skyrim OC Challenge!

This sounded like a fun little challenge. I wasn’t certain anyone was doing this but I’m starting to see them trickle in so I’m hopping on board. All this is based off the fic featuring Edric, His Brother’s Keeper. This story is still ongoing, so some things can’t be elaborated on due to spoilers of upcoming plot points.

#1 Introduction
Edric Whitemane; he doesn’t start using that name until much later, and for four years only goes by Dragonborn or Dovahkiin except to those who know him well and know exactly who he is. Nord male. He’s small for a Nord, about 5′10″ (177.8 cm). He has light brown/dark blond hair that is going white early and green eyes, though they turn silver when he joins the Circle. He has facial scarring from the fight with Alduin in Sovngarde. He was already in Skyrim in 4E201, a Legionnaire stationed in Helgen when Ulfric is brought in. Though his personality is a bit more cheerful before Sovngarde, he is very introverted and impatient, though he hides it well. He’s polite and helpful, though more out of knowing it’s the right thing to do than any real empathy or warmth towards people, but he would do anything for those he grows to care for or respect. He’s a high-functioning alcoholic and goes through severe withdrawal after taking the beastblood.

#2 Former Life

He joined the Imperial Legion at 16 and spent most of his career stationed in various parts of Cyrodiil. He was sent back to Skyrim in 4E201 with General Tullius’ legion to deal with the unrest in Skyrim. His mother Daina is alive and lives in Honeyside in Riften; his father is Kodlak Whitemane, the Harbinger of the Companions, however Kodlak doesn’t find this out until right before Edric leaves for Skuldafn in 4E204. Edric was fathered while Kodlak was on a mission in the area of Bruma in late 4E174, then the city was sacked by the dominion in early 4E175 and Kodlak thought that Daina and her unborn child had been killed.

#3 Class
Edric fights mainly as a spellsword (the definition used in TES: Oblivion). By time he flies off to face Alduin he’s wearing Daedric armor, mostly to unsettle people and keep them at a distance, and using an ebony sword; until he joined the Companions he invariably wore a helmet or Daedric mask to hide his appearance and identity. He went with the spellsword specialty so that he would never feel incapable of defending himself; if he gets disarmed he has his magic, and if he runs out of magicka he still has a weapon. He’s more gifted with magic than he lets on to fellow Nords due to their discomfort with it. 

#4 Love life 
Edric married Ralof in late 4E201, though they kept this a secret so as not to make Ralof a target or hinder Ralof’s own career. Ralof dies in the Battle of Windhelm, unknown to Edric until he goes to Sovngarde and sees his husband’s soul there.

After a year of grieving (this is when Dawnguard and Dragonborn take place), Edric finally decides to join the Companions for Kodlak’s sake, since the old man is dying by then, and meets Farkas. With some time and effort on Farkas’ part, Edric decides to try to live again. After Edric takes the beastblood they bond as werewolves do, and when he returns from war in the south against the Dominion they marry (somewhere around 4E209 I think?).

#5 Stormcloaks or Imperial?
Due to events in Helgen, Edric joined the Stormcloaks. He had become very disillusioned with the Legion by then, and seeing Ulfric and his followers being sent to the block pushed him into rebelling. He has fond memories of the Legion and regrets fighting against those who were his former brothers-in-arms, but he believes that the Dominion is systematically trying to crush humanity under its bootheel, specifically, trying to break the collective spirit of Nords as Skyrim was home to the first men in Tamriel, and that the Legion is allowing it. He sympathizes with the Legion’s position, however he detests Titus Mede for signing the White-Gold Concordat and making the sacrifices of the Legion during the Great War (specifically those lost in the Battle of the Red Ring) worthless.

Thank you @german-angstfest​ for this challenge, it was fun to do.
