(Mini) Mini Post: Most Overused (and Annoying) Lines in Skyrim

“Been to the Cloud District often? What am I saying? Of course you haven’t.”

I’m Balgruuf’s best friend. Fuck off.

“Think of doing any mercenary work? I think it might suit you.”

Thanks, I got think I got the message the first 600 times you’ve said it.

“…You…look a bit pale. Are you feeling alright?”

God, in the beginning of my first playthrough this never stopped. NEVER STOPPED. Until one day it did. So weird…o____O

“I am SWORN to carry your burdens…”

And this is why I dumped Lydia. Off a mountain.

“My cousin is out fighting dragons. And what
do I get? Guard duty.”


Are all my followers sick or something or just bored? Maybe next time I’ll just leave them in Blackreach. See if they’re bored then. >:D


Yes, I know, Marcurio. That’s why we love you, you little pack mule, you. ❤

“Wait…I know you.”


“You there. Stop shouting. It’s making
people nervous.”



“Loyal Cicero lives to serve.”

“I work for Belathor, in the general goods shop.”


“Need something?”

“M’aiq is done talking.”

Nooooo!! TALK MOAR!! D:

“Laa dee daa, tee hee hee~!!”

…I kind of miss this now, actually…:/


For gods sake, why couldn’t you just be quiet like Dogmeat was?!

“I used to be an adventurer like you. Then I took an arrow in the–“





Fun With M’aiq – Part I

March 9, 2012

"M'aiq wishes he had a stick made out of fishies to give to you. Sadly, he does not." ...I want a fishy stick! 😦

Oh, Mai’q.

What an amazing, and rare, easter egg. He wanders Tamriel, and says the funniest things.

In Oblivion, I ran into him a few times, mostly near Leyawiin, for some reason. “Werewolves? Where? Wolves? Men that are wolves? Many wolves. Everywhere. Many men. That is enough for M’aiq.” And then he’d run off in impossible speeds. I tried chasing after him many a time, only to lose sight of him as he ran off into the hills. Perhaps a horse would keep up with him, but I’m not so sure about that…I guess his acrobatics skill is maxed…XD

In Skyrim, I’ve only ran into him twice. The first time, was during an attack by a mammoth, which is mentioned here in this post (or actually not….oops?…but it happened right after the incident with the Argonian and the dragon). I saved him, and in my glee I talked to him right away. I found him amusing then, and I would have stuck around with him for a little longer, if I didn’t have to worry about dragons and frost spiders.

The second time, happened only yesterday. With my newest character, Marabelle, a female Breton mage, I was on my way walking to Windhelm when I ran into him just before Mixwater Mill.

"M'aiq's father was also called M'aiq. As was M'aiq's father's father. At least, that's what his father said." Well, that explains some things...

(To be honest, when I saw him from behind, I thought he was some sort of priest or those Vigilant of Stendarr weirdos).

After running through his pretty funny lines (“Skyrim was once the land of many butterflies. Now, not so much.”), checking what he had in his inventory (predictably, bottles of Skooma). I decided to play around.

And I ran into him.

Several times, in fact.

By that, I mean, full on dash straight into him. I didn’t have FUS RO DAH! on this character yet, so this was the second best.

“What are you doing?”




And then M’aiq fell off into the waterfall.


He fell to the lower ledge.

“Whee!!” I jumped after him.

I landed beside him. Understandably, he was pissed.

Nudge, nudge.

Shove, shove.

“AAAAHHHHHGHHGHGHHHH!!!!” He screamed as he disappeared into the white foam of the raging falls.

“M’AIQQQQ!!!” I screamed after him, hoping I didn’t kill him.

I dived in after him, completely disregarding the last time I took a leap of faith down a waterfall and cracked my head open. After the initial roar of the water, and the water cleared, did I see him gently floating down the stream.

“Wheee!!” I thought. This was kind of nice.

After drifting slowly down the river a short ways, he washed up on shore. I followed him out the water, looking forward to whatever comment he had about his crazy cliff dive…I mean, push.

“M’aiq is done talking.”

Really? That’s it?

“M’aiq is done talking.”

I promptly shoved him back into the water and watched him get swept down the river, with a look of dismay on his face.

“M’aiq has heard it is dangerous to be your friend.”

Yeah…I guess that’s probably true. 😀

Til next time we meet, M’aiq!

"Dragons? Oh, they're everywhere! You must fly very high to see most of them, though. The ones nearer the ground are very hard to see, being invisible." Oh, how little did we know...Man, I need to play Morrowind some time...
