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.

I know exactly what you mean! i love my Snow Strider and when we got attacked by a cave bear i flipped out because he rushed right in and my flame spells were doing squat at the time. KIcked the bears butt though. I love my horse.

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