My Bestest Buddy by Isriana My Bestest Buddy by Isriana
I'm sorry Lydia, did you say something? I was momentarily deafened by the awesomeness of my hooved friend here, so I didn't quite catch that.

This was pretty much my reaction when I realized that in Skyrim your horse can actually fight by your side. For the record, I was never one of those little girls who had their walls plastered with horse and pony posters - all the more so, it baffles me how I've gotten so attached to my little virtual mount, Queen Alfsigr. I genuinely worry for her every time we end up in the middle of the battle, and I take it somewhat personally if she gets hurt. "OMG, dragon, you dare to attack my horse?! That's it, you're so going to die"... :XD:

I originally sketched this idea already in last December, about same time as this [link] but then I misplaced the damn paper and didn't find it until now. As belated as it is, I hope you like it... :D
Oh, and here is a little "Making Of" piece about this comic:

Horses in Skyrim just don't give a shit, they just take what they want.

I really like it when my horse helps me I feel like I took good care of my horse and she would repay my kindness with defending me :D

Wait It's A She?!

Astrid calls her a guy however Lucien La Chance calls Shadowmere a girl in both Oblivion and Skyrim.

Lucien calls Shadowmere a guy in Skyrim if you summon him I think

Yeah you're right. In Oblivion Lucien calls Shadowmere a she but in Skyrim he calls Shadowmere a she. Astrid is prone to switching the gender from he to she but never in the same conversation.

see this is why i only buy horses from Whiterun. I bought a Solitude one and it ran away when i was fighting some mages the battle was twenty feet away from it behind a fort's wall and it still ran away i tried looking for it but it disappeared.
