Avoiding Vekel's quest? (Potential minor spoilers?) Civil war in Winterhold?

So I'm aware that Vekel has a totally broken quest that will send me to Yngvild. I've also come to learn that the new patch coming down the pike fixes it. I've just been avoiding Yngvild, but I'm finding it harder to avoid because I'm trying to do all of the Thane quests because I'm aware that they frequently conflict with other quests, and two quest objectives are now in Yngvild, including the Helm objective, which is a pre-requisite to opening up the Winterhold Thane line.

If I studiously go through Yngvild and only pick up my Winterhold quest item, the helm, think I'll be able to go back and do Vekel's quest once the patch comes in? Or should I go play Bioshock until the patch is ready? :)

I think the only thing that matters is that you don't pick up the diaries. Don't even touch them, lest you accidentally start/update Vekel's objective. Otherwise it shouldn't matter.
Don't let the dragon drag on!

Aye. As HoonDing says as long as you ignore the journals you won't start the quest.
