Like the WIP of before, I think a lot of people tend to forget what Brynjolf is in his core: a thief.
This glorious, impossible man to swoon, is like a wild animal. You can only really appreciate them in their natural habitat, from afar, where you can admire their totality of their person and context.
So I think the reason that Brynjolf is unmarriagleable is that the man is already committed! To the Thieves Guild. You can tell he really worries about the Guild and its members and definitly acts a bit like a big brother to everyone - Delvin would be the cool uncle sorts. I'm fine with not marrying Brynjolf, though ye gods if that were an option I would've SO FAST, with a "Howdy" a day from 'im I can manage.
Remember that when you tame a wolf it loses it's "edge", and by then it's nothing more than another man's dog.
I feel like it's the exact same way with Bryn. On my last character, I did download a mod to make him marriable, but you've made me kinda reconsider it.
This is a lovely piece and your description was perfect.
True. So very true.
Though, it would have been fun if they made it so you could marry Byrnjolf, but he would stay the same. Yeah, he'd call you 'love' or 'dear' and shtuff, but he'd still be his 'wolf' self, if that made any sense. XD
But in this sense, you wouldn't be taming him. You'd just be married to this 'wild animal'. And, even though in real life it would probably drive other women insane, I would be alright with this :3
THANKS FOR UNDERSTANDING OK.
I kinda wish you could have married him but then it's like, I remembered the one time I married Vilkas and then wondered where exactly my favorite grumpy serious warrior went, and then I shudder to think what would happen if they did that to Brynjolf.
Ruin a character so fast you wouldn't have time to blink. But yeah, he's way committed to the Thieves Guild. Clearly. Since he does the whole 'I'm busy hanging about in the cistern lass/lad, sorry lol'. |D
None of this is gonna stop me fangirling over him in my spare time though. Especially with fanarts like this just hangin' around...
Anyway, awesome stuff. Makes me want to play Skyrim again...
Lovely colours on this one! I love the subtle gradients!
I don't know why, but he was oddly attractive.
Need to play Skyrim again.
I need to play Skyrim, if only to hit on him with my own thief.
Unf, dat Brynjolf.
