Is this character ruined?

So started a new character, decided to side with the Imperials, did a few quest. Have to talk to Balgruuf. I know you cannot proceed in the civil war without starting the MQ.

But I hadn't started the MQ yet. I did do the golden claw, and picked up the dragonstone. Talk to Farengar, give it to him immediately (cause I had it derp), tells me to talk to Balgruuf, but he keeps saying not now.

Have I goofed?

Yes.

Also you'll need to make a few more saves to fully fix this damn glitch...

Try waiting. You'll have to wait for the guard from the watchtower to arrive. That begins the first dragon attack.

You'll need to go back to the Helgen sequence...

Sorry...

It takes like 20 minutes to do the intro and Golden Claw quest. Just put it on easy and skip dialog.

This is the scene where you swear your undying hatred for me!

Surely you only need to go back to a save when you still had the Jagged Crown? Instead of giving it to Tullius & starting the Message to Whiterun quest, keep it & finish off the Dragonstone quest. Then you can do Dragons Rising as usual, & then carry on with the Imperial quests.

Apparently, saying "I'm a girl" is a "provocative statement" on GameFAQs. I don't know what to think about that.
