    I know this fanfic seems to have died, but I promise it hasn't. I've been computer-less for months, that's all. I have a working laptop again, so if anyone is still reading this, I expect to be able to post new chapters regularly from now on.

    Part VI of Songs of the Dead should be completely posted by the weekend. I've also started a second story called The Ashlanders and I hope to have the first part of that one posted soon as well, if anyone feels like some Companions fan fiction. <3

    Hehe, awesome :D Ashlanders will be a bit more serious and suspenseful than Songs, but lots of good stuff (I hope) if one likes Dunmer lore, the Companions, or Solstheim. And I'll have artwork for that one.

    Not sure about the current chapter of Songs I'm writing, though. Might need further editing, I just used the phrase "passionate kiss" :vomit: lol

    I've been wondering what happened to this story for awhile now. Good to hear that this is back as well as Ashlanders.

    That sounds pretty good, I'll keep checking back for that first part. And I hate writing like that, it feels so weird :confused:

    Part VI is up :D Sorry for the delay, I've been sick most of the past couple of weeks.

    Pretty sure I checked it thoroughly for grammar and spelling and such, but I'm still not feeling great so you'll have to forgive me if it's not my best. <3

    There is some PG-13 Nord-on-Khajiit lovin' in this one. So if that weirds you out, you've been warned (and as a side note, you're definitely reading the wrong fanfic...lol)

    Oh, and also :eek: This thread has had over 5,000 hits?! I suspect a couple hundred of those were me proofreading and editing after the fact, and I'm sure plenty of those people thought it was awful, but even so, that's a lot of views.

    That's pretty fluffing cool. Thanks guys! <3 Especially those of you who keep coming back to read it even though I take forever to post new stuff :p Khajiit hug for you:

    So glad I finally got around to reading this chapter. It was amazing, and that screamer in the background, that was pure genius it added more intensity and emphasized the idea that no where is safe. Keep up the good work and like always, I patiently await your next chapter. :)

    Hello again, sorry to bother you, I realize that now I have the last three comments on this thread, lol, not trying to spam you at all :D. But I've been wondering, is Ashlanders still going to happen? Because I went on there and I noticed that nothing has been posted yet. I'm not at all trying to rush you, I promise and I understand that you are busy working on this one and probably busy with lots of other stuff. I just wanna know if you changed your mind on Ashlanders or not because I was honestly excited about that story. Again, not trying to rush you or push you at all I know it probably seems like I am but I'm not. It's your story I'm not gonna demand you update it at a certain set time. Anyways, have a nice day or night or evening or morning depending on whenever you read this.

    Oh wow, look at all I missed while I was away! :D Sorry for disappearing, it's been a rather insane couple of months here.

    Funny you should mention that, I lost what I had written of The Ashlanders when my old computer crashed but I started to write it again tonight. I haven't changed my mind, in fact I'm more excited than ever to start it :) Also working on Part VII of SOTD and going to bring in some new characters, so I hope to have something soon.

    I greatly appreciate you all taking the time to read and comment on my story, and for being so patient because I know I take forever to post new stuff :p Thank you <3

    Ah, alright...so it looks like The Ashlanders will have to wait, sorry :sadface: What with work, starting the lengthy process of moving to another country, and all my other obligations I can only handle one fanfic at a time. So I'm going to work on Songs Of The Dead for now. It might be sporadic but I will keep updating it. :) Thanks for your patience <3

    We can wait on Ashlanders, there is no rush. Good luck moving, and with work. What country are you moving to, if I may ask, just curious. I hope that's not TOO personal I mean it's not like I asked where in the country. ;)

    Lol no worries :) It's a long and complicated process, but if everything goes to plan I'll be living in Denmark within the next couple years.

    Question before I start putting up the next chapter, which is just about ready for posting (finally :D took me long enough):

    I thought it might be interesting if Nikhaya and Onmund were keeping journals throughout the story, with entries at the beginning of each chapter (one chapter would be Onmund's, the next Nikhaya's, and so on) done in the style of the books you find in Skyrim. Might add a little depth to their tale if they could tell pieces of it themselves.

    Anyone like this idea, think it's not necessary, etc.? If anyone wants to see this, I'll probably go back and add them to the last six chapters as well. Any and all feedback is appreciated :)

    I myself really like the idea of journals. Not only can you describe the scene really well with third person like you have been doing, but you can also use the first person journal entries to get a little deeper into the feels. Oh the feels.

    AWESOME fanfic by the way. I almost hate to read everyone's stuff. It makes me realize how much more I need to improve on my own...
