Fjor Snow-Side sat on the docks of Solitude. He was 67 years old. The war was over. But he still felt its pain. It was around mid-night. The only soul other than his was his friend Solduiran Long-Finger. Both of them not three days prior watched a long time friend drift off to sleep and join the Atherious.
The moons were no where to be found tonight. And the stars even seemed to be hiding. Fog rolled across the still black water. Neither spoke for a long while as they stared out into the darkness. It was a calmness that was welcome to Fjor's turbulent life. Solduiran broke the silence. "Why did you fight under another's banner?" Solduiran's deep voice could be felt in the wood on the dock.
The answer was simple, it had always been simple. "For Love."
"Her's?"
"Indeed."
"I see."
Silence resumed. Fjor's thoughts filled with sadness again, and they only reaffirmed what he was doing. A tear rolled down his face and onto the dock.
"I know I still have many years left in me but they are of little use to me now," Fjor said at last. "I know how you feel about this, as you have good reason, but know that this is what I want."
Solduiran looked at him. He too had tears in his eyes. "I know. You always hated surprises," he said in reply. Solduiran always made light the darkest situations but how he had said that made Fjor believe that he finally understood.
Fjor stood up and walked to the end of the dock. Solduiran followed him. The two lifted a small chest into a small boat that was tied up there. Then they returned to the dock. "I believe it is time I go now," Fjor said embracing his old friend.
"This is the end then isn't it?"
"Yes, my friend."
Fjor got into the boat again and untied his it. He was ready to but before he put the oars in the water he said something that not three days he before had spoken, "The End. To a great story."


As we rowed out into the bay Solduiran heard him sing and joined Solduiran joined him until he could not hear his friend sing anymore. This was the song that they sung:


Sovngarde is calling,
So I must not stay,
I will not continue stalling,
So listen what I say,

I've lost my love I tell you,
But she beckons to me now,
This is what I must do,
Standing on the bow,

I row out to meet her,
So I may kiss her once again,
Singing so I might be heard,
by that fair maiden,

Oh this is the end,
the end, the end,
Yes men the end,
To our graves they send,

But now I will not weep,
I say evermore,
For my soul to keep,
In that great hall with Shor,

I've lost my love I tell you,
But she beckons to me now,
This is what I must do,
Standing on the bow,

I row out to meet her,
So I may kiss her once again,
Singing so I might be heard,
by that fair maiden,




Fjor Snow-Side was never seen or heard from again. Some years later a small chest with name Snow-Side written on it. It contained letters that he had never sent. Many addressed to one person.

They say when the night is without its moons, and fog fills the bay at, one can look out and see a boat. A boat rowed by one man. And if you listen close enough you can hear his song on the wind.
