Skyrim: My Bestest Buddy by Isriana Skyrim: 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:

Once, my horse went and fought a dragon... She died, but I'll always remember her, such a brave horse.

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

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

Leviathantamer Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2014
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.

it will cool if Bethesda made a special dialogue when Lucien sees Shadowmere like ''Ah my magnificent steed, it been a while since I saw you'' or something like that

When I got into the first dragon fight I had Queen with me and the damn dragon killed my horse! He landed right next to her and breathed fire,(I have a mod that makes it so that it takes like 10 min to kill a dragon high level) I was so pissed that I screamed "No!" at my computer until I killed that lizard then I used a cheat to bring her back "resurrect" then I was all cool

OMG I know what you mean. On my first playthrough on Skyrim, my character's horse that I bought at Whiterun stables was killed in Winterhold by the magical anomalies that resulted from a certain Thalmor's actions.

I killed Ancano real slow, and one of the staff was kind enough to reanimate him for me. So I could kill him again.

I remember my first horse of skyrim, strong and noble. Good girl grew on me, too bad all my old files were deleted and I had to start anew. You can always buy a new horse or dog, but it isn't the same

Never should have come here! I always laugh when I hear a bandit say that; there's just something so funny about it. Especially when I kill them almost straight after they say it.

Get Shadowmere or that skeleton horse you can summon from the Dawngaurd add on. Shadowmere regenrates health quickly so he's hard to kill, and you can keep summoning the skeleton horse.
