I do not own the Elder Scroll Series, Dragon Age, or any of the characters. I only own the plot and any characters I create myself. Thank you.
A.N – This fanfic will be the Dovahkiin/Dragonborn going to Ferelden. My character's name is Alexa. She had deep, blood red hair and ice blue eyes. She is trained in heavy armor, one-handed, sneak, archery, block, and lock-picking. She is the harbinger of the companions and the guild master to the Thieves Guild. She normally wears Daedric Armor and wield a dragonbone sword, bow, and quiver of arrows.
Also in this fanfic the werewolves look a bit more like wolves. More fur and her eyes will stay the same ice blue. She helped defeat the stormcloaks and is Thane in all the holds. She defeated Alduin in Sovenguard and a group of her closest friends and Serana, her wife, picked her up by boat about a hundred miles outside Skyrim.
I would like to thank everyone who is reading this fanfic and would ask that you please review and tell me what you think. Please do not flame. Thank you.
After a year of trail and error, hardship and sacrifice, the great dragon Alduin had finally been defeated. A dragon named Dunivhiir had flown me to the entrance of Sovenguard to fight the world eater and fight I did. With Alduin's death peace had been restored to Skyrim.
When I had arrived from Sovenguard I had somehow ended up on a small island far away from anything else. Luckily I was only stuck there for a couple of days when a large ship with a group of my most trusted friends, and my wife, found me.
The group consisted of few people; Vikas, Serana, Lydia, Farkas, Brynjolf, Karliaha, and Aela. They had been searching for me ever since I had left and luckily Parthanuux had known where I'd end up so he told them.
Since that day we had been attempting to sail back to Skyrim but a major storm had ended up putting us way off course, which also led to us sitting in the middle of who knows where.
Sighing softly for what seemed like the hundredth time that day I poured over the map in front of me but no matter what I couldn't pinpoint where we had managed to end up. Even the stars were of no use.
"Screw this." Standing up I stretched and headed up on deck. Thankfully after a couple days of being stuck in a storm it was nice to see blue sky once again. I caught Farkas once more puking his lunch up over the rail and laughed softly.
He glanced back and noticed it was me who was currently laughing at his misfortune and growled softly, before his face took on a slight green pallor and quickly returned to the edge of the boat.
"Land Ho!" With just those two words my day brightened considerably, wanting desperately to be back at my house in Falkreath with a warm fire and a cup of mead. We got closer to land when Aela walked over and wrapped her arms around my waist from behind.
She seemed to have a strange look of both confusion and suspicion in her eyes before she pointed at the land mass that was quickly approchaing. "Something here does not smell right. I may no longer be a vampire but I can still smell the wet dog."
She had left for a while after we defeated her father and when I saw her again she was human so her sense of smell was still pretty good. The moment we got a bit closer the smell hit me like a tone of giants. The smell itself wasn't that bad considering I smelled like wet dog during my travels but it did raise some concerns. One of witch was defiantly 'where the hell did we end up'.
"Vikas get everyone ready in case a fight starts up." He ran off with a nod, telling everyone what they needed to do. Gently prying myself from my woman's arms I turned and smiled softly. "I am going to grab my weapons and some basic steel armor from below."
"Why basic steel armor, what's wrong with your normal set of Daedric armor?" I shrugged and started walking towards my room. "I just don't want to make a bad impression of being some demon when we get there."
Serana nodded and turned back to watching the city get closer while I quickly changed into some basic steel armor. After changing I grabbed my sword and strapped it on to my waist as well as hooking a quiver of arrows and bow to my back.
Walking back up on deck I caught Brynjolf's eye and pointed to the eagles nest. He turned and quickly made his way up without a complaint. He may not have liked it but out of all of us he had the best damn eyes when it came to spotting trouble and staying hidden.
After what seemed like an eternity the captain finally pulled us into dock. Lifting my nose ever so slightly I inhaled deeply and frowned when nothing smelled familiar. Looking over the crowd at the port I noticed that most of the inhabitants or workers were either human or strange looking elves.
Turning to the crew I smiled broadly. "All right, once we make port everyone is to disembark and attempt to figure out where we are and how we get back home. Although if a couple pints of mead and a belly full of food helps then who am I to disagree. Got it!"
Cheers rang out on the ship and I chuckled softly. Hearing a loud groan up top I looked up and smirked. "Don't worry Brynjolf I'll make sure to bring you back mead and food." He nodded and turned away, slightly sulking I guessed, though he would probably end up with mead and food without my help anyways.
The ship pulled into port and everyone got off, murmurs of thanks being given by nearly everyone to be off the damned boat. I inwardly sent my own thanks up before looking around the little city. Almost everyone who lived here seemed to be a nord and the few elves I could spot distanced themselves from everyone else.
The small group parted, everyone going there own ways or in pairs to get information. "Well shall we be off?" Serana asked me.
Nodding I pointed towards a guard against one of the walls. "Perhaps a guard could tell us where we are and also where we could acquire a map." Walking towards the guard I kept myself on full alert. In Skyrim people knew who I was and knew not to screw with me...here, anything could happen. When we got close to the guard he looked me up and down before sighing.
"What, did someone steal from you?" He asked, tone suggesting he was extremely bored. I quickly pushed down the sharp retort forming before I said something I would regret.
"Actually I was hoping you could tell us what city we are in and also where we could find someone who could sell us a map." He looked over both of us with narrowed, suspicious eyes.
After a few seconds he finally seemed to believe we meant him no harm. "You are in the port of Deneriem, This land is called Ferelden. Also the only people that sell maps would be the elves but no one cares about them knife ears and they wouldn't sell to you anyway."
I may have not been that smart to begin with but I knew that knife ears was meant to be an insult. "Thanks for the information." Before he could do anything else I walked forward, slightly bumping into him, before easily and quickly lifting his coin purse.
When we had gotten a way Serana stopped me and frowned. "You didn't have to lift his purse you know." She said in that disapproving tone that almost made me want to go give it back. I shrugged and strapped the purse onto my belt.
"I couldn't help it. Though I must admit that I really hope not everyone is like this or Karliaha will end up killing someone for the day is out." She merely rolled her eyes and smiled. "Now I think we should find where the elves here stay so we can get a map and go home."
It wasn't hard to figure out where to go. In the corner of the city a bunch of elves were trying to barter with people or doing there laundry. I walked over to one of the elven merchants but when I got close she started backing up.
Stopping in my tracks I lifted my hands showing that I was unarmed. "Look I'm not here to hurt you. I am actually looking for someone to buy a map from and I was told by a guard that I could find one here."
She seemed to relax a bit but did not step closer. "There is a map maker inside the alianage but a wedding is about to start so he might not be able to help you." I nodded and looked over at Serana, who gave me a nod in return.
"What is normally given as gifts to a wedding?" The woman's eyes widened almost impossibly wide before she pointed at flowers.
"Usually flowers are given, food and wine occasionally as well." I nodded and looked around, smirking when I saw a stand selling flowers and the one next to it selling mead.
I started over to the stand while Serana stayed back and chatted with the elf woman, who was quickly warming up to her. At the stand I purchased a bouquet of lilies along with a few other pretty flowers as well as a barrel of wine I guess.
When I went to pay though I realized that currency here was different. What would normally cost a few gold pieces in Skyrim cost only a few silver here. "Look I'll pay you extra if you can deliver all this to the alianage for me. Tell them that it's for the wedding...but I'll only pay you after it gets there." Both merchants nodded and I jogged back to Serana.
"Well if we are going to try and buy a map while there is a wedding going on then giving gifts to the new couple while we are there would be nice."
"At least you think with your head sometimes and not with your sword." She said and I chuckled softly. I thanked the merchant and gave her a gold piece for the trouble before walking towards into the alianage.
The place was a hell hole. Everything was run down and filthy and there were a few extremely sick elves just lying on the ground, waiting to die. My heart grew heavy, not knowing what I could do to help them.
We walked futher in when two elves stopped us. The older elf, a female, glared at us with starteling green eyes. "Look a wedding is about to start and we don't need you humans here causing trouble for everyone."
Serana stepped in before I could say anything. "Actually we are here to buy a map and for the couple getting married flowers and wine are being delivered here." The older elf seemed taken aback and she just stared at us, jaw nearly on the floor.
"So you aren't here to cause trouble?" She asked and I shook my head. "Okay but at least try and be careful, not all elves here are as trusting." She warned us before walking off.
We looked around for a bit when the wine and flowers arrived. I paid the poor man a few gold for his services and he ran out as fast as his legs could take him, mind you that it wasn't very fast. Serana grabbed my hand.
"Perhaps we should wait until after the wedding to find this person. I would hate to ruin the celebration." She was right as usual and I gave her hand a gentle squeeze before we moved to the back of the large group.
I was honestly surprised when it started. The young female elf who had tried to persuade me to leave was the one getting married. The ceremony started off without a hitch when a group of guards surrounding three, what seemed to be over dressed drunken nobles, walked in.
The three men marched right up onto the stage and grabbed two of the younger females tightly by the arm. A loud growl escaped my throat and I easily made my way through the crowd.
"I would suggest you let them go before you get yourself hurt." The one that seemed to be the leader sneered down at me and laughed loudly and obnoxiously.
"Why would I do that. I am having a party and currently short of female guests. You could join us if you like." His tone suggested more and my inner wolf was howling for his blood but I kept it caged inside.
Resting my hand on my blade I glared at him, Serana stepping next to me her hands, filled with magic hidden underneath her cloak. "I will warn you once more. Let them go or I will make sure you can't touch another girl again...elf or human." The guards stepped closer but I paid them no mind since my wife moved to stand behind me.
The boy took a step back, dragging the girl with him. "Please you wouldn't do anything to me. I'm the Arl's son and I could have you killed for simply laying a hand on me." He was nearly pleading with me but I have never ever given into petty threats...except when Serana threatened me cause she was downright scary at times.
"Do you honestly think I care who's son you are?" I asked and everyone stared at me in shock. "I warned you now what is your answer because I have no wish to spill your petty blood but should you force my hand then I will."
He dropped the girls arm and unsheathed an over fancy sword, that was probably more for decoration than fighting, and I grinned fangs slightly bared. "Oh well then." I said and he charged towards me.
