omfg so i was playing skyrim last night (shocker, i know) and i experienced a sequence of events that was so fucking catastrophic oh my god
okay so i was doing the dark brotherhood quest where i had to kill vittoria vici. i’m at the wedding standing by the gargoyle, i knock it down and kill vittoria (and also steal her adorable flower wedding crown), the audience goes wild, yadda yadda. the whole city of solitude is on my asscrack as i’m racing out of the doors
i get outside and the late bride’s family, plus a herd of guards, are chasing me as i’m frantically running down the rocks toward the stables where my horse is. one of the family members is firing ice beams at me, i’ve got arrows sticking out of my forehead and i’m repeatedly using health potions but i can see my horse
i finally get on the damn thing and i’m turning to leave and guess what i fucking see: a group of vampires, randomly spawned bc i’m a lazy ass who hasn’t finished the dawnstar dlc, and they’re attacking the stableworkers. i jump off my horse and start blindly swinging my war ax, fighting the vampires WITH THE AID OF the townspeople that were just trying to kill me
the vampires are swiftly killed and i FINALLY get on my horse; the townspeople seem to have forgotten their quarrel with me, since they’re heading back up to solitude and leaving me alone. i turn my ass around, ready to leave the stables, and what do i fucking see?
