Dark Elf: Bonuses in bladed weapons (well, one-handed this time?), archery, and Destruction magic, all of which I use. Perfect for my first run where I do pretty much everything that interests me: Being a good, sneaky shortsword-and-bow-wielding mage woman. And the fire resistance won't hurt at all for early/flame dragons.
After that, Wood Elf: Bonuses in archery and sneak, both of which I'm fond. This would be my mostly-strict archery playthrough.

Nord - Because I have played as a Nord since Morrowind. Tried the other races, didn't like them. And then I learned that the Nords were modeled after Nordic and Northern Scottish, Nord has always been my go-to since.
