SKYRIM: So I have this, um, friend... who is, like, a total geek-face...

...because being into or having knowledge of anything that isn't Mad Men or Breaking Bad makes one, like, a total geek-face, right?
Anyway, this friend officially became a contributor to the "articles" section of Skyrim Forums during the wee-small-hours of this morning. To do that, you have to submit an article. Then other geek-faces who mod the site read it and, if they like it, the submission becomes an "official article."
The mods agreed that my friend's idea for an article about Skyrim written from the POV of a character in Skyrim was a way-cool idea to try out as an "article" instead of "fan fiction," so the article went up this morning.
The initial response to it has been very good; if it takes off, it will become a series.
So... if any of you geek-faces want to take a look, here ya go: http://skyrimforums.org/threads/mehitabel-i-the-whumping-lesson.14931/
MEHITABEL I -- THE WHUMPING LESSON
M'aiq saw a mudcrab the other day. Horrible creatures. They've got all the money. Mudcrabs taking over everything. They already run Pelagiad. M'aiq The Liar
Whump. Whump. WhumpWhump.
Mehitabel has read many books, never a single one about mudcrabs. Perhaps the mudcrab, throughout history, has yet to accomplish enough to attract the attention of those who write books. This seems like the easiest answer in the world.
If all of this one's experiences were to be, through no small amount of effort, concentrated within an enchanted gem at death, hauled to a forgotten ruin on the other side of the world, placed within some apparatus of presumably Dwemer origin and projected onto a wall of the ruin a ruin which had no doubt claimed the lives of many members of the expedition, each of them dying with a sad, unique story upon their tongues the survivors, eager to claim what must certainly be the most sought after knowledge in recent history, would read upon the wall:
The world loves easy answers.
