** There's [[https://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/39625/ a similar mod]] where the player finds a tiny wolf cub, nudging his dead mother, and adopts him. You actually get to nourish him and raise him, watching him grow from a helpless babe to a fierce companion. Adorable!

* [[http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/54244 Save the Dark Brotherhood]]. Part Heartwarming, part Awesome. Instead of being too late to the raid of your sanctuary, you're just in time to save your "family" from the Penitus Oculatus (except for Lis [the pet Frostbite Spider], and Astrid, who enacted the Black Sacrament on herself). You can even marry either Gabriella, Veezara, or the (now available) Arnbjorn after saving them.

* Despite the ChivalrousPervert and {{Rule34}} inclined nature of the mod, most of the quests added by [[http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/70495/ Amorous Adventures]] are full of this. Yes, it exaggerates the ChickMagnet aspect of the Dovahkiin, but he must prove himself to any of the potential lovers that he is worthy of them. Highlights include getting Serana to move on from her DarkAndTroubledPast of her family and Molag Bal (and it ties closely with the ''Dawnguard'' questline to boot), getting Elisif The Fair to [[HerHeartWillGoOn move on]] from her late husband Torygg [[spoiler: (and in a related vanilla quest where you need to place his war horn on a shrine of Talos, Torygg even gives his blessing to you, knowing that you will take good care of Elisif)]], and solving the "visions" that Idgrod the Younger has.

** Really, the Dovahkiin's interactions with children in general are this. You can play tag, as mentioned above, you can rid Aventus and the orphanage of Grelod the "Kind", you can convince Braith to stop bullying Lars, and there's even a depressed girl in Solitude you can cheer up by telling her about the dragon encounter in Helgen. And while Bethesda prevents you from killing children, another possible interpretation is that the Dovahkiin [[WouldntHurtAChild just can't bring him/herself to go through with it.]]

* There's a sneaky one for players of ''Bloodmoon''. One quest in that game involved an immortal warrior named Ulfgar the Unending, who was traveling the world to find the way to get to Sovngarde. Of course, that turns out to be having to kill him. [[spoiler:So, what happens when you go to Sovngarde? He's there. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything And so are his teammates, who were turned to stone.]] Yep, he finally found what he'd been searching for for 500 years. ([[MoodWhiplash Regrettably, the effect is slightly diminished by the fact that he looks absolutely nothing like he did in]] ''[[MoodWhiplash Bloodmoon]]''.]])

* Getting married. Have a look around the temple before the ceremony - recognise anyone? Didn't you do a few quests for that lady over there? Aren't those a couple of your guildmates? [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything The game keeps track]] of your friends, and they're here for you on your special day!

* While I was building my house, Lydia commented that she would like to become steward. I agreed. I couldn't think of anyone more deserving of that kind of retirement: still serving her Thane, but now watching over my family and property. My most loyal and reliable follower, the ideal steward, and she ''earned'' it.

** You don't have to lob to Windhelm for this but it's better if you did: Aventus had been praying for the Dark Brotherhood to send assassins for him and when you appear he's in awe that the Dragonborn, any combination of barbarian ProudWarriorRaceGuy orc reptilian AmazonianBeauty cat person orc [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot mercenary bandit vampire warewolf]] slayer, is his champion. But even better if you already let the MamaBear/PapaWolf out and already done the killing.

* While most of the mage instructors in the College of Winderhold are mostly friendly and reasonable once the Dragonborn joins the College, Faralda in particular seems to develop a fondness toward them the moment they prove worthy to enter. The is best demonstrated should they ask Faralda about the Thalmor Mage Ancano, where Faralda's immediate reaction is to warn the Dragonborn to keep their guard up around Ancano, as if her BigSisterInstinct spikes up at the slightest thought of Dovahkiin being threatened.

* When speaking with Paarthurnax about the time break atop the Throat of the World, he will mention that once you receive the vision, you will see the old Nord heroes - except he calls them ''wuth fahdonne'', his ''"old friends"''. Think about his use of that specific word. A dragon, an ancient dovah, had ''mortal friends''. They were not simply pupils or allies; Gormlaith, Hakon, and Felldir were Paarthurnax's ''friends''. Something about that is so incredibly ''moving''. And not only that, [[TearJerker Paarthurnax has not seen them in thousands of years]], but they live on on Sovngarde.
