This is a fan fiction based off of The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. It won't be TOO necessary to have prior knowledge of the game, but the story would be more engaging if you've played most of the game already. Later on, it will also incorporate parts of the Dawnguard DLC's plot.
Although it is not evident in this chapter, this story will eventually feature a same-sex relationship of a tame - non-pornographic - nature. I will reflect this in the keywords to hopefully ward off anyone who is opposed to this. This is NOT a lemon-fic or yaoi. No explicit sexual descriptions will be provided, just mild intimate interactions, and romance will not be used until later. Romance and sexuality are NOT main driving themes of this story.
Ri'saad is also a lot younger in the story than he actually is in the game.
Updated on Nov. 11, 2012 for the purpose of clarity. Chapter Two also slightly tweaked, but that's less important. This is a significant extension.

Yeah, I realize anyone who stumbles upon this fanfic probably won't bother to read the disclaimer, and people opposed to eventual (minor) themes will complain no matter what I say. I still feel the need to put that disclaimer out there to account for the chance that someone sensible might stop by and realize, "Hey! There's a disclaimer! Gee, it must be there for a reason!"
Anyways, in non-disclaimer-related commentary, this is the first fan fiction I have decided to post online. Any feedback you have would be greatly appreciated, whether praiseful or constructive!
You don't have permission to claim this as your own, but I suppose everyone knows this already. I will search for the name of the character I created and portions of the story once weekly to make sure I weed out plagiarism. You've been warned.
