Amelia was still having second thoughts and regrets when they ported to the Falkreath Sanctuary. She had killed innocents before; it was part of the job. Why did Tova Shatter-Shield’s murder bother her so? For the first time since Speaker Terenus had approached her years ago, Amelia wondered if she might be doing the wrong thing. She was a vampire; killing was what she did. And she was a damn good assassin. But could she ever hope for redemption? She had accepted that she would go to the void upon death, but what if she would rather go to Dibella’s realm instead? Dibella had once told Amelia She loved her. Did She still love her, or had She abandoned her when she had joined the Brotherhood? And if she did stay with the Brotherhood, what if she choked?
With old Skyrim it was just cheese. But I’ve gotten to know Uncle Sheo a bit more, and I’ve learned he’s particularly fond of cabbage too, apparently. So I thought, why not?

Author’s Note: This chapter contains spoilers, not only for the “Mourning Never Comes” quest but also my Selene Stormblade series. I am writing this in the same world as Selene, after Selene’s story has been completed and before Dragonborn: the Legacy begins, and that means that certain out-of-game, off-lore things have happened. I make no apologies, but if you’re a lore junkie, you might want to consider not reading.
After nursing Vallanil back to health, Amelia took him with her to complete her other two contracts. With him along, the kills were effortless. Afterward, they used her portal stone to head back to the Falkreath Sanctuary.
How about a dip, fully clothes, in the freezing water?
They’ll never find me here.
Who knew the Falmer had a gymnastics team?
I have a nasty habit of pickpocketing snarky guards down to their skivvies (actually, now, they’re totally naked thanks to a body mod). This one said, “If I see your hand in my pocket, I’m going to cut it off,” after I had undressed him! I can’t explain the chicken.
