Author has written 2 stories for Elder Scroll series.

Hello there. I supposed you clicked here to find a bit more about me.

I first started writing here a very long time ago (back in the day when the Skyrim fanfic scene was BUMPIN') but got so busy with life I fell out of it. Eventually I came across the files on my laptop and decided to take a stroll down memory lane, and of course I caught the writing bug again and swore I would finish what I started (god dammit I have a million things to do why am I like this fuck my inability to leave projects unfinished).

So, while I do try to write when I can, please keep in mind I am a crazy university asshole who's juggling a crazy school load, a job, volunteering, and a social life all while trying to manage my mental and physical health. Right now I’m on a break until my term is finished and I’ve lined up some chapters, but I’m planning to do TONS of writing this summer so be assured I will update regularly fairly soon.

The stories I have right now are:

A Tale of a Nightingale

This is my main bitch and I put a lot of time and careful thought into it. It's a goliath of a story I started years ago centering around the Thieves Guild questline (aka the best questline). I wanted to write a story that painted Skyrim and its people more realistic and immersive, the main character Isobel is a capable but mentally unstable thief who has to learn how to cope with pain and love and discover the true meaning of strength. There is a Brynjolf romance (because we all love those), but if you're looking for the usual fluffy and/or passionate kind you won't find it here.

Two Birds One Stone

This is my side bitch. As I started writing about Karliah in A Tale of a Nightingale I struggled a lot with all the details of her life and the Thieves Guild during Gallus' leadership. I decided to write this short little mini-series focusing on her and Gallus (as well as establish the details of the Guild pre-Mercer's reign) in an attempt to fully flesh them out for my main story and ensure they are interesting, well-developed characters. You do not need to read A Tale of a Nightingale at all to enjoy this story.
