Yesterday a dragon attacked as I was approaching Riften from the south. So I engaged it and fought it, and at one point it landed. It was only after I had pressed the button to hit it with a fus-ro-dah that I noticed it had landed by a farm and there were people all around it. So my shout pissed everyone off and a guard came running at me. I sheathed my weapon so we could settle it diplomatically, and I get the "you have committed crimes against Skyrim and her people" and so on. I tell the guard I'm with the Thieves' Guild and offer 20 gold to settle my bounty. While we're having this conversation, I can see behind her this dragon fighting these farmers and other guards, and the whole thing is just comical. As she's saying "I can make your problems with the guards go away, but it will cost you", the dragon is right behind her blasting everyone with frost, and she doesn't bat an eye, so important was my little crime to her. I'm clicking through the buttons as fast as I can to get this over with so I can kill this dragon. Finally it got all settled and everyone became non-hostile to me, and I got to kill the dragon. Amazingly, no one else had gotten killed during this humorous interval. Another funny moment happened today when I murdered someone in Riften. It was Drifa, the wife of Bersi, the owner of the Pawned Prawn. I needed to rob that store, and Drifa doesn't go to sleep at night so every time I break in, she's there at the counter telling me I need to leave. So I decide to get her out of the way, partly for practical reasons and partly because she's so annoying and she inconvenienced me and my character is kind of a jerk that way (being a member of the Dark Brotherhood and all). After inconclusively following her around all day as she wandered around the marketplace, and not getting any opportunity to kill her without witnesses, I decided to ambush her the next morning as she walked out of the Pawned Prawn. It's in an alley, rarely any witnesses nearby. She comes out at 9:00 and I quickly creep up behind her with a dagger and end her. Immediately afterward, someone, I think it was the blacksmith Balimund, yelled out in this booming voice: "BY THE GODS, DID THAT REALLY JUST HAPPEN?". Something about the way he said it and how unexpected it was just made me laugh uncontrollably for 10 minutes.
