Notes: I did a lot of research for this one. And I had to, because I’m changing canon and I needed something to back up that decision based on true events. Odds are that anything you think is a canon error/mistake is me doing what I want. This does contain certain elements—they always do, right?

And then (13 March 2014), I finally succumbed to the urge to do something with Elder Scrolls. It took me a long time (an hour, perhaps) to finally figure out how these two could be blended with any believability, with a lot of that depending on canon events in Elder Scrolls, even if we never actually saw such events happening. What I’m doing breaks canon, of course, because otherwise my explanation of the blend is impossible.

Some passages are lifted from Goblet of Fire for the applicable chapters. Some quests are borrowed from Skyrim (and official DLC), and at least one Shout from fan-made DLC (Wyrmstooth, which has a wikia), possibly spells as well.

And then (21 November 2014) I realized that I should point something out. After reading the odd article or three at BuzzFeed I must say I have never read The Fault In Our Stars nor seen the movie, so any and all similarities with “okay” is pure coincidence. And I’m mentioning it because I keep seeing that word pop up on Etsy-type stuff or whatever, so....

And, huh. I will state that I have played Skyrim and gone all three ways: no Civil War, Stormcloak, and Legion. Personally, I prefer playing the Empire side, because it makes more sense to me. But for the purposes of this story... well, you’ll see what I mean later, but Legate Dragonborn doesn’t sound nearly as interesting as Dragonborn Stormblade, and given the character’s fondness for enchanting weapons with Shock...

Oh, right. I took liberties with how Aura Whisper shows things, mainly because I was so used to my character wearing those Dwemer Goggles (a mod) and seeing specific colours that I unthinkingly had Aura Whisper work that way. Or something like that. I forget. (I don’t have it installed at the moment because it conflicts with the wear location of something else, so I can’t check.)

Uh, a non-English language while in Britain is denoted differently, mainly so you can tell when the Britons should be clueless as to what’s being said. So remember this, because I won’t put a key in every applicable chapter; if I can remember it so can y’all. Auf Deutsch. (Apologies to Japan, also applies to people speaking Japanese where applicable.) «En Français.» Also, apologies to anyone who uses a screen reader, because I’ve no idea how they’ll be interpreted.

I, uh, kind of gloss over the aftermath of the mentioned rape, though it does get mentioned more than once. I wanted it there for a couple of reasons, even if it’s not immediately obvious why.

The ending went right off the rails into crack territory... yeah.
