Cicero has been my main husbando since I first played Skyrim nine years ago. No others have managed to compete. And yes, the fanfiction is just great. Haha, when I originally played Skyrim on the Xbox 360 when I was a teenager who couldn't get a nice PC, I used to give Cicero an enchanted silver ruby ring and pretend we were married. Now mods do that all for me.
Yeah, it's always a shame when you really like a character but there doesn't seem to be much of a fanbase attached to them. My feelings on Desmond and Teru Mikami, I suppose.
