I love that reaction image, it's golden.

[-] [email protected] 37 points 4 months ago

I probably played Skyrim 200 hours and it's news to me you can marry anyone. I fail to see why I would want to in the first place.

[-] [email protected] 32 points 4 months ago

I did it once, on my first play through in like 2012. As I recall, everything about it is super awkward, and combined with the robotic NPC animations, it just made me feel embarrassed to be going through with it lol.

Then it felt like every other line from her had "my husband" shoved in. It got really annoying before too long.

Also never adopted a child in the game because Bethesda's child NPCs are always dog shit (IMO). Actually the ones in Fallout 3 had an interesting thing going on with their commune, but they are still insufferable.

If you marry the right person you get an extra shop to sell to, occasional free septims and a food item that makes stamina, magica, and health regen 25% faster once a day. Oh, and they constantly get in your way in whatever home you store them in.

The resting bonus is also increased if you're sleeping in a bed in your marital home.

I guess you're new to the concept of an "RPG"

You being downvoted is puzzling. Romance was by far the most popular thing in baldur's gate 3 after all, this was the best thing at the time, both skyrim and mass effect were awkward compared to today.

This is the most "The sims player comment" on another game that I've ever seen.

Seranas not even marriable

Open the console (~), click her, and try:

addtofaction 19809 1

No promises how well this works with Serana; with Lydia it turned out that she has all the right voice lines for getting/being married, which is neat.

[-] [email protected] 28 points 4 months ago

Lydia is already part of PotentialMarriageFaction. Don't even need DLC.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 4 months ago

Is she? I swear I had to use the console command when I married her, uh, 12 years ago, did she get added after launch?

[-] [email protected] 15 points 4 months ago

Not exactly. The marriage faction was kind of buggy on launch and Lydia was somehow both in the faction and not in the faction. Wiki says it was fixed in patch 1.5.24.

Aaaand crash to desktop

Dear op he didn't die homeless

[-] [email protected] 5 points 4 months ago

No, he did. He just didn't die houseless :(

[-] [email protected] 19 points 4 months ago

Holy shit I laughed so hard. Maybe it's time for another playthrough.

[-] [email protected] 4 points 4 months ago

So it begins...

[-] askat 10 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

I always marry Ysolda. As for kids I adopt Lucia (a girl from Whiterun) and Sofie (she is selling flowers in Windhelm)

[-] [email protected] 8 points 4 months ago

Lydia... always Lydia. Her sass is too cute.

[-] [email protected] 3 points 4 months ago* (last edited 4 months ago)

Look I'm a simple man. I just need a Nord battle mommy to make me feel safe.

[-] [email protected] 7 points 4 months ago

You mean there were other marriable NPCs other than Farkas? Interesting-
(Talking about what Skyrim spouse choices say a lot about a person...)

Sylgja 100% every playthrough

Rookie mistake i would've killed the kids and serena too just for shit and giggles. In fact i woulda've killed the guy and serena the first time i met them so i wouldn't even need to kill the kids assuming of course they are all killable characters or i would just kill myself in front of them and use reanimate and kill myself again in another painful way (also for shit and giggles) also kill the guy i confess too (can't leave loose threads)

EDIT : I just realised i have to kill some lemmings too now because can't leave no loose threads .

EDIT : To people who have read this dm me your adress so we can err host a skyrim fan con yes fan con.

This is like one of those memetic SCPs...

[-] [email protected] 2 points 4 months ago

I don't remember his name, but I married the dude that was an apprentice to a potion shop owner. Can't even remember the town cuz it's been so long since I've played. He's a good husband though
