Before the Fall of the Thieves' Guild, before the Betrayal of Mercer Frey, there was a last great trio of Nightingales. Gallus, Karliah, and Mercer were a band closer than family. Brought together by a mutual love of adventure and riches, the three swear an Oath to Nocturnal so that she may bless them with even more abilities. When Mercer falls victim to his lust for even more power, his greed threatens to tear their very trio apart. Discover the untold story of these Nightingales, through the "Tears of the Nightingales".



Chapter One- Gallus (Posted 10/22/19)

Chapter Two- Karliah (Posted 11/19/19)

Chapter Three- Gallus (To be Posted)



Hey y'all! We're here with yet another chaptered story! Unlike "In Love and War", this story will follow a storyline and characters that we really don't know too much about. The Nightingale storyline in the game was one of my favorites. It was well written, extensive, super involving, and of course, Gallus. The relationship between Gallus and Karliah is so endearing that I think I've cried every time I complete the mission. It's really made me wonder who they were before Mercer's betrayal. That's what we would like to see expresed in "Tears of The Nightingales".

This is a very unique story for several reasons, but I'm not going to spoil it just yet. I hope you stick around and see what I mean! As always, let me know what you think in the comments of each chapter and don't forget to leave a like!

EDIT: With the release of chapter two, I am happy to reveal that this story will be a collab with a good friend of mine Lee Fiskilis Carpenter! We thought this story would be best told from two different perspectives- two different authors- to give a truly unique feel. Working on two different schedules in two vastly different timezones is challenging, but we will strive to release chapters as they become available! As each chapter releases, we would like to encourage you to give us feedback. Thank you so much for giving this a read and we hope you enjoy what we have in store.

Talos Guide You!
