First Sin

(this is set before the events Gwynolda's story and part of Act I)

The year was 196 in the 4th Era of the Nine, average day like any in the safest hold in the Reach, city of Markarth. An young nord maiden went her way to the old city, seeking the temple of Dibella for her reasons. Her name was Svenja and she travelled quite far from the middle of Skyrim to the far west.

She was welcomed by the guards before stepped in the city and when she arrived, she was impressed by the architecture, the order and quiet life of the city, it was different from her home Whiterun and her family. The city seemed quite friendly for a young nord girl thought she.

As the usual daily route, young sister looked down the streets of Markarth, thought her eyes the city wasn't the same, she was Gwynolda, young initate at the temple, who was preparring for her coming initation in the Temple.

 

Gwynolda: Bloody as usual, and chained... I should go back before I get geezes of the nords..

Svenja was ready to go in the Temple seeking her answers, but someone catched her eyes.

 

tumblr_pckwo7Kzh01va1210o5_1280.jpg

 

She saw a beautiful young woman, her strong vibrant green eyes piercied the young nord girl heart, her dark hair color was strange to Svenja, unusual, almost exotic, she recognised she is from the Sisterhood. Svenja never was really interested in girls, but she wanted make an expection. It seemed svenja got her attention wich made her nervous, she knew she might be her answer.

 

Gwynolda:(sigh)..

Svenja didn't noticed how ankwardly, she stared Gwynolda in the middle of the streets, but she made up her mind and decided to join the temple, despite she is not really interested their arts and lessons.

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o10_r1_1280.jpg

 

She joined not short in the end of her first day, she spent a few months there, learning the ways and the lessons of the temple, thought she rarely ever spoken, she mostly was around Gwynolda and tried talk with her, no success. Being blessed naturally and beautiful herself as the sisters told her, she was really popular in the temple and the city.

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o4_r1_1280.jpg

 

Svenja was greatly favored by Mother Hamal, who developed affection for a young nord maiden, wich caused divide between her and Gwynolda. Thought Svenja was not pure, when she arrived her initation was planned with someone else then Gwynolda, she get herself together and approached Gwynolda one of the nights.

 

tumblr_pckwo7Kzh01va1210o7_1280.jpg

 

Gwynolda didn't looked too pleased by Svenja's pressence, she weared the flowers in her hair, presenting she was not deflowered and pure sister of the sisterhood. While Svenja adored and "loved" Gwynolda, she never shared this feeling..

 

Gwynolda: You distrupting my preparations, snowmen girl.. If you want something go tell it otherwise leave me alone..

Svenja: I...have.. name too..

Gwynolda: So..spell it out...

 

tumblr_pckwo7Kzh01va1210o8_1280.jpg

 

Svenja get herself together and told what she wishes from Gwynolda.

 

Svenja: I want do the initation with you, to make love and find my answers from you, I knew I wanted join the temple, moment when I saw you..

Gwynolda: It took quite long time from the months of weird behaviour from you, so you want my flower huh? No..

Svenja: But I thought... initates doing the ritual itself..

 

tumblr_pckwo7Kzh01va1210o9_1280.jpg

 

Gwynolda: I have right to decline, you even if you are "desirable" snowman girl, but I don't intend to make the ritual of pure love and give my flower for someone I do not like, eversince you are here Hamal went overborad with her jealousy and of course I get the worse, nevermind its not like you would get initation with me, even I would like too..

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o1_1280.jpg

 

Gwynolda: Why is that look? I'm not sure what you seeked here, but you don't get your answers from me neither Hamal dry and saggy pee-pee.

 

tumblr_pckwo7Kzh01va1210o10_1280.jpg

 

Gwynolda: If you wish help me leave the temple or just do yourself a favor and get your answers somewhere else, at least you can leave and have family, can go back somewhere... I can't go anywhere else

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o3_1280.jpg

 

Svenja was left the temple, dissapointed.

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o2_1280.jpg

 

She spent a few hours sitting and crying a bit, while thought, she spent her time uselessly in the temple.  Next day she went back to Whiterun to her family and continued her bard activites. Of course her left was leaved some consequences.

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o5_r1_1280.jpg

 

Gwynolda got the blame, she was severly punished by Svenja's leaving, her hair got cutted short, humilitated before the entire sisterhood, her body was full of wounds by whips, she was whipped for 5 days in row and she kneeled and forbid to take any different pose for that time. Gwynolda despised every moment of it and her hatred started put its seeds.

 

Sister: This is just the first day Gwynolda, tommorow I will be th eone who will do it(chuckles).

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o6_r1_1280.jpg

 

Five days later, she went near the river of the city and tended her wounds. She started doubt the Temple after her treatment, despite Sevenja decided to leave her own dissapointment, she never thought she was faulty for that. Even in doubt her faith was strong and the temple seemed slowly becomeless good in her eyes.

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o8_r1_1280.jpg

 

She painted reachmens marks on her face with her own blood, to show where is from, first sign of her rebellion, she turned back on the temples opinion about her people and started consider herself one of them.

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o7_r1_1280.jpg

 

She sat for a while, calmy, curing and insulting the leadership of the temple and those who are hurted her, thiknig about how nord girl was treated lot more different than she who was always there.

 

Gwynolda: I starting thing something is not right in the temple, after seeing Svenja's treatment, they definetly hate me...(sigh)

 

tumblr_pckwpzAs4O1va1210o9_r2_1280.jpg

 

She beginned her healing process to remove the scars and het her long hair back, she wished to be beautiful again like she was before.

Oh, I love Svenja and Gwynolda. This entry is also very well made. Compliments. :)

Thank you ?

Interesting backstory. Svenja actually had quite the impact on Gwynolda's opinions. Too bad they weren't able to do the initiation together though ? Excellent job!

Well Svenja got different reasons for being there, she thought might Gwynolda give some comfort, but thats when I ever get to do her story.

 

She helped those seeds grow, since Gwynolda realised treated being shit is not part of being initate, rather being discrimate her, thus opened for the reachmens.

 

Gwynolda does have some disdain for nords, thus she call the lore-wise insult to them the "snowman".

Thank you :D 

 

Well you can consider this kind of prologue thing, since in her official start of story she wears those marks and healed herself.

 

There will be one more chapter to expand the first act.

Oh I see you wanna make her a bad girl.:wink: and give her reason to be more like a native to the reach and join forsworn prison break. :classic_biggrin::mrgreen::thumbsup:

So... A prequel act for Gwynolda & Svenja ! Interesting I must say, and it gives some roots for Gwynolda's disdain for the nords. And nicely illustrated with that, good job ! ?

 

Just one detail though : dont let Malicia get into your head. Pee-pee is the word children do use for sex, as they're only doing "pee" with it. You'll rarely find adults using that word, unless speaking to a child that is. But between adults most people will say "sex", vagina/vulva, dick/cock or another word. Malicia just happens to have kept a lot of her child vocabulary even after coming of age, that's one of her singularities. :classic_wink:

 

Malicia : « Hi-i ♪ Gwynolda !  You were very pretty with your flowers ! Don't pay attention to the saggy pee-pees, they're just being jealous, yes.  :classic_angel: »

Well this planned anyway in her story, just added later and worked a bit more polished, now it serves quite good prologue.

 

I got used to Gwynolda use words like that, so she keep them like with the swords and sheats.

 

Well Gwynolda sure knows that Malicia, when you will come to her for a sheat play?

She was always neutral to the forsworn, but she opened for the ones in the city, rather the tribals.

Let us hope she continues to stand firm. It will be a shame if she must be purged with the rest of the ragged king's heathens.

Gwynolda was using swords & sheaths, which is alright in a medieval country. But I just wanted to warn your that "pee-pee" or so is gonna feel strange to readers if heard aside of preschool. Don't let Malicia fool you. ^^

Malicia : « You don't play with your friends' pee-pee, Mr Resdayn. That's very silly. :classic_exclamation: »

Pretty sure only Gwynolda and Malicia use those words, neither of my chars use it aside of Gwynolda.

 

You must had strange pre-school life, when I was about that age, we never really thought things like that.

You don't (except for the infamous pee-pee comparisons, even though it's girls comparing to boys at that age, not boys between them... :classic_angel:). But that's how a mother is gonna refer to it when cleansing a little child, or learning words to him/her. :classic_smile:

Is the children being curious a cultural fact ? Or them being taught words for body parts by their parents ? In my country at least, children aren't born with innate knowledge of those. :classic_wink:
