An Interview with a Dwemer: Vol I Chapter 1
By Solduiran Long-Finger

I do not remember exactly how I met him but I did. I do not know why he was so friendly to me and took here. But I do know that right now I am sitting in front of a Dwemer. Yes, a living breathing Dwemer. I thought they were gone and lost to magics far beyond my understanding. What follows are my conversations with him.

S: You are Dwemer then?

R: Yes.

S: You’re taller than I imagined.

R: (no response)

S: I mean they do call your people Dwarves and…

R: Well, then have never met me then have they?

S: No. No I suppose a great many haven’t.

R: You are the only one in this century.

S: Oh. Can I know your name? I like to know whom I am addressing.

R: Rzaik.

S: Rzaik… okay. Where are we exactly?

R: (after a long pause.) In your tongue, “Blackreach.”

S: Are all Dwemer your size? You stand taller than most High Elves…

R: No. I am not full Dwemer. My father was Falmer.

S: Oh, yes I forgot the relationship between Dwem…

R: You speak of things you know nothing about.

He seemed a little offended by what was saying so I decided to hold my tongue. We were in a small house in Blackreach what would have been on the outskirts of the cavern. Rzaik was massive. He had to duck when enter most doorways. It was interesting he had led me here down through an old ruin. Automations seemed as if they would attack me but did not as if the very presence of Rzaik was enough to calm them.
He moved with long strides and spoke with a deep voice. I could not see under his helmet but his armor glowed from blue stones on his armor. I must admit I was in more awe now then when I had stood before Vivec the Living God. Rzaik seemed to know the ruins like the back of his hand, but his body language seemed to say more than what he spoke of to me. His movements made it seem as if he were grieving for the ruins, once full of splendor, now reduced to empty and lifeless for the most part buildings that dotted the landscapes of Tamriel. One could almost feel his pain.

Rzaik also toted on his back a hammer that glowed with the same inlaid material as his armor. The Snow Elf side of him must of made him taller than most of his kind. I know how that feels. He must have been a man of importance in society then to walk how he does, to were such armor, and carry such a weapon. I have seen Dwarven Armor sets and weapons but Rzaik’s set was unlike anything I have ever seen.

I was impatient. So many questions that I had for him sat on the tip of my tongue. It ate at me but I felt that the time was not right.

Pretty cool, but do you plan on all the volumes having such a resemblance to "Interview with a Vampire"? I like that you've put a TES twist on it but some originality with the rest would make for a sweet story.

I actually have read that. I kinda ripped of the title but that was as far as My knowledge went. I will work on trying to add something more to it. So I guess no I don't plan on it but if they do my bad as I don't really know if I am or not. But thanks for reading it! I hope more people will.

What I meant by that was the opening and coldness from Rzaik resembles the story quite closely, but as long as the story he tells and the experiences he went through don't resemble it I think it could make for an interesting read.

i dont know if i like this idea.
You realy should read up on divine metaphysics and the animunculi theory before making such an attempt.

There are not many things in TES that are harder to pull off than an actual dwemer...
