Ondoliad - Song IILike a tapestry woven by masters that know no rivals,Ondoliad - Song II by NorroenDyrd
Our tale begins, with colourful threads intertwined.
Of these countless threads, is the brightest the maiden Kiare,
Whose sea-deep blue eyes are always alight with the spirit of laughter.
Friend to all those she meets, she is cherished by reverent mortals,
For she fetches for them items lost in remote dark caverns,
And protects them from beasts, and helps harvest their crops, in particular cabbage;
But most valued of boons that she grants when she kindles a friendship
Is boundless joy, which makes voices ring out in songs most heart-warming,
Quick to banish the cold that encroaches, stealthy, in winter,
As the hearth's gentle light fades away, and lone wolves do so howl in forests
(For angry they are, wretched beasts, and annoyed, being bound to carry
Odds and ends, such as rings, golden coins, and forks, in their fur long and mangy).
'Tis this blessing of joy that Kiare the happy, the youthful, the gleeful

Where digital pixels have merged with the gods of Olympus.
Altered beyond recognition, their noble visage
Now mirrors the features of mortals inhabiting Skyrim.
Lo! Reclining against scores of cloud-shaped cushions,

Not covered by cloth, pelts of beasts, or by glimmering armour,
His body is ploughed by scars like a field nigh the time of planting.
His eyes, ruby-red, are like wine, cold and scorching and heady,
And his loins rest not from the hunger that drives him
To seek out young maidens, be they daughters of kings or of shepherds,
And to feast on the honey and milk of their passionate kisses.
'Tis Zeuseol, the ruler of gods, the father of heroes, the bringer of thunder.
Sing praise to him, muse! Sing of his strength and the fiery battlefield fury!
Descending from heights where he sits, enthroned in his splendour,
We traverse the expanse 'tween gods' realm and the home o
In Pursuit - pt. 2The sky is darkening fast, and the sun's bright glare over the rooftops of Solitude slowly fades away - until all that is left is a single ray of light, tinted a deep, almost pumpkin-like shade of orange. Like a playful child that refuses to go back home after his mother has called out that it is time for bed, this last ray dances through the streets, collecting tiny particles of dust along the way. Sparkling like the tiniest constellation, drawing bizarre, otherworldly patterns, they keep whirling round and round within the sunray, as it travels down the street.In Pursuit - pt. 2 by NorroenDyrd
It plants a swift, warm, playful kiss on the round cheek of little Minette, who giggles and waves her hand when the ray glides away from her. It bounces off the bottles of spiced wine in an open-air stall in the market, making the stall's owner blink a few times in confusion and look up at the sky, trying to figure out what time it is and where in Oblivion did her lazy braggart of a father wander off to again. It sweeps up the
