The Twins gather together again with all their old companions who remain, to celebrate the new year and remember all those who didn't make it. Singing, "Should auld acquaintance be forgot and never brought to mind? .....
Trying to start the cooking fire with damp wood and a breeze making it more of a pain than normal, Graykin was starting to regret talking the Twins into going on a camping trip this late in the fall! It didn't help that they were not shy about letting him know how they felt about it either! Each of them taking turns and mincing no words on expressing this to him! 'Let's go camping you said!" the Elder Twin started in. "It will be fun you said!" the Younger Twin picking up on the tone. "It's not THAT cold yet, you insisted!" Elder Twin. "The mosquitoes will all be gone by now, you declared!" Younger Twin. "It's still dry enough for camp and cooking fires, you assured us!" Elder Twin. At which point feeling a bit stung, Graykin responded, "Hey! You both could have just said NO to going!" and he frowned. Pulling out their ace in the hole, the Younger Twin sitting by the campfire, which fortunately Graykin was able to start finally said, "I'm still cold!" and glared back! The Elder Twin then announced, "And I'm still hungry!" glaring at him as well. Sighing to himself and dropping his head in defeat, Graykin spoke, "I... I'm truly sorry. Let me get this fire going and cook up the grub first" he glanced up at them both and finished, "Then we can discuss wither to throw in the towel and just go home or stay another day or two." Realizing that they may have pushed him a bit too far, the Twins expressions softened and they both nodded back at him.
Attracted by the wonderful odor, almost as if they were working together as a team, the giant mud crab and the saber tooth charged up simultaneously from the riverbank! They attempted to snatch the freshly caught fish roasting on the cooking spit! The twins were caught by surprise, but determined and not about to let that happen! As it turned out, the crab made a tasty addition to the meal with the fish and the saber tooth was going to turn out to be, a very cozy rug indeed!
Finally rescuing Serana's mother Valerica from the Soul Cairn (after Lord Harkon's demise!), it was time to recuperate a little before heading back home. Serana had decided to become mortal beforehand and went away to make the transition before we began the rescue attempt. This was Apache's first quest with the Twins. Although she did seem to be a bit traumatized in that weird environment, she proved to be a very capable opponent and good team player.
Exploring deep within the Soul Cairn, the Vilja Twins found some random fragments at various sites. Then finding the name of the fragments owner's abode, the Twins entered and cast the fragments upon the alter where they floated. Hoping to uncover an artifact or some treasure but only this creepy creature appeared and (much to it's surprise!) was promptly dispatched! No artifact, no treasure . What a bummer!
Following up on info of hidden foes in Skyrim. Discovered the Dragon in an underground city with some leads provided. When Graykin brought it down using the Dragonrend shout, the Twins went into action and finished the job! The younger Vilja was actually leaping off the stairs as she sent arrow after arrow into the overgrown lizard! Taste like chicken! Yummy!
Not thinking clearly, Graykin carelessly said something that hurt the Elder Twins feelings! Her Sister stood and called him on it! She pulled no punches with how she felt about his comment!
Looking over at the Elder Vilja, Graykin realized how it had affected her and felt remorseful. With the Younger Twin glaring at him, he apologized from the bottom of his heart, gazing deeply into her eyes! Fortunately for him, she realized that he didn't really mean what he said. And quickly forgave him. (Much to his relief!) :)
This one is great, love how it captures the emotions and presents the character in such an intriguing light.
