Confessions of a Gem Hoarder.

Okay! Okay! *sob* I admit it. I have a problem. I... I like gems.

*deep breath*

My name is Arctic_Sunrise and I am addicted to shiny things.

Not candlesticks or silver plates, no, no. Cheap tat, minimally shiny. Bulky, always weighing me down. (Though interestingly easy to stuff into surprisingly tiny burlap sacks). Ingots? SO last age. Oh sure, you can make them into armour, but that's so mainstream. Where's the art? Where's the glimmer?

A hammer is so coarse and dull. And a furnace is so... so... warm and... warm.

No, no. Gems are where it's at. Gems. Gems. Gems.

I don't care what kind. Emeralds! Rubies! Sapphires! Even pearls, which aren't gems, but actually a mildly gross incidental digestive process that happens to be shiny. ANY will do. I... I fill the pockets of my wolfskin clothing. And when I run out of space, I shove rubies down my underwear so that my package looks enormous... *sob* My peers call me rude names like... like 'shinyscrotum' and 'glitterballs.' BUT I DON'T CARE. They're just jealous. Jealous, I say! They could never hide such wondrous material wealth in the shadow of their genitals.

And then... when I return to one of my many, many homes around Skyrim... I offload all my shinies into every container ever. Wardrobe? Gems. Shelf? Gems. Bowl? Gems. Dinner plate? Gems. Who needs venison anyway? It doesn't shine!

Do I have a problem? Perhaps... perhaps... but... even when all is said and done and I've admitted my downfalls...I...just...can't...leave them on a SHELF.

I'm totally the same way! I have no plans to sell almost all of the stuff I pick up; it just sits and collects dust while I pick up more junk. I'm totally not a hoarder IRL but Skyrim brings out the worst in me!

I don't care that this was a joke topic. The grammar made my day.

Nice, 10/10.

I'm the same with gems, jewellery, gold and silver ingots and soulgems.

I use to also hoard... ALL alchoholic beverages but I've cut down to only blackbriar and honneybrew mead and reserve. I've now got some class and dont drink nord piss.

I too hoard gems as well as any precious medals or jewelry. I plan to eventually make a huge dragon style mound of precious treasure.

After time adrift among open stars, along tides of light and to shoals of dust, I will return to where I began.

Was I being rude? Sorry, I tend to get that way around stupid people.
