Summary: Martin Septim hasn't had enough sleep since the week the assassins came, leaving him unexpectedly both the Emperor of Tamriel *and* the only person who can save the world. Between prophetic dreams, trauma flashbacks, and nightmares straight out of the Evilest Book You Can Imagine, he's afraid to even go to bed. His bodyguards and protectors don't know what to do. So it's up to Martin's best friend, Alix de Feu, to help him relax. Narrator Alix is deliberately genderless, so you can read this as het or slash, as you prefer. Fandom: Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion Rating: 15, like the game. Tags: * Hurt/Comfort * Angst * Genderless Character * Implied Sexual Content Also, warning for canon trauma (specifically, lots and lots of death, and previous dubcon. Definitely not dubcon in this story). Notes: The description of Sanguine is borrowed from the Unofficial Elder Scrolls Pages wiki, with my love and thanks. Small snippets of dialogue are borrowed from the game Oblivion, for authenticity's sake. Martin, Jauffre, Baurus, Jena, and the gods belong to Bethesda. Alix de Feu belongs to me. Fiction follows in the next 2 posts.
