A Hand to Hold, Part II is here!

Hey everybody, I finally figured out what to do with the second part of the “Hand to Hold” story.  As described previously, this fanfic is an attempt to explore the life of a particular Skyrim orphan in more detail.  While the young orphan, Jot, doesn’t actually appear in the game, his life seems fairly typical of the other orphans that do appear.

Anyway, the link to “A Hand to Hold, Part II” is here.

A Hand to Hold, Part I

We’re finally starting a new fan fiction today!  Anyone who’s played Skyrim is familiar with the orphans inhabiting various towns.  While talking with the orphans reveals a little about their backgrounds, I thought I would try to delve a little deeper into the lives of young people alone in Skyrim province.  While the main characters in the story don’t actually exist in the game, some of the supporting cast does appear, though not in a major role.  Also, I tried to stick reasonably close to Elder Scrolls lore; if I’ve made any major violations, don’t hesitate to tell me!

Reverberations Wraps Up!

So, we’ve finally come to the end of the Reverberations story, where Adrian finally figures out what’s going on in his subconscious, and realizes he’s not the only one thus afflicted.  This was not an easy story to write — I need a lot more practice!  You can follow the entire story via the links below:

I guess I need to think about what to write next.  If you have any suggestions, I’d be happy to hear from you!

Reverberations Part IV is Here!

Hi Folks, I just published the newest episode of “Reverberations,” in which Adrian’s company trip finally begins, Lukas’ learning finally pays off, but heartbreak is right around the corner!

This is probably the second-to-last episode of this story; the next one should about wrap it up.

You know, while we’re at it…

In the last couple installments of the Childhoods story, I included some illustrations based on screenshots I made while playing The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.  Further, these screenshots included content from numerous user modifications.  There are thousands of mods out there, and more are coming out all the time.  On my sidebar, I’ve added a couple of my favorite Elder Scrolls mod sites, but I thought I’d describe them here as well:

  • Nexus Mods – Skyrim is a clearinghouse for all kinds of Skyrim mods, from followers, to player homes, to animations to you-name-it.  The Skyrim modding community is still very active, so this site is updated all the time.  Note that Nexus Mods has pages for other games as well, including other Elder Scrolls titles, Fallout titles, and many more.
  • Emma’s Elder Scrolls Site is hosted by one of the more famous modders in the Elder Scrolls universe.  On the site are mods for Morrowind, Oblivion, and Skyrim, created not only by Emma, but by her friends and colleagues as well.  Be sure to check out her Forum (registration required to participate); you’ll find users from all over the world!
