You might have heard of Skyrim, the mega-popular fifth instalment in the Tolkien-inspired Elder Scrolls video game series, in which you kill dragons by shouting at them.
Now meet Patrick Lenton. He's an author from Sydney, Australia.
This morning he tweeted a story about how he found a dog in Skyrim and tried to adopt it. Hold on tight because it is EPIC.
Lenton really liked the dog.
He fought hard to stop dragons eating it.
He built a house for the dog.
But there's a problem:
And that doesn't quite work out.
And still, the dog was following him around.
As if things couldn't get any worse, the girl instead adopts something else.
There is a slight tangent in the story here about Lenton's character marrying a "hot to trot" lioness called Mjoll.
It turns out Skyrim is a socially progressive place.
And phew! That's the end of it.
OH WAIT NO IT'S NOT.
But still. All's well that ends well.
We asked Lenton if there was any update and sadly there isn't, there's just a reminder that relationships in fantasy computer games can be hard work.
