* AdaptationalAttractiveness: [[CatPeople Khajiiti]], [[LizardFolk Argonians]] and [[OurOrcsAreDifferent Orcs]] in ''Prequel'' are as drawn as cutely as all the other characters. In ''Oblivion'', they are infamous as the three ugliest races in the game due to their [[UncannyValley wonky]] [[{{Gonk}} face models]].

---> '''Katia''': All I want to do is finish my simple fucking job, leave Kvatch, and pray that some merciful Cyrodiilic god burns this town to the ground because praying for things to not suck sure seems to be all I can do at this point.
* DramaticNecklaceRemoval: Done to the amulet of silence, which was fortunately [[GenreSavvy prepared for such an occasion]].
--> "The necklace has a Drama Clasp! Itís a special kind of clasp that comes undone when you dramatically yank on it."

''Prequel, [[EitherOrTitle or]] Making A Cat Cry: The Adventure'' is an ''[[Franchise/TheElderScrolls Elder Scrolls]]'' fan comic in the style of ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures'', written and illustrated by Kazerad with various artistic collaborators. It is primarily based on ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion Oblivion]],'' beginning roughly two weeks before the events of the main story.

The story follows a poor young [[CatFolk Khajiit]] from the province of Hammerfell who decides to start her life anew in Cyrodiil. After giving herself a new name -- Katia Managan -- she becomes determined to leave her old self behind. Katia is quickly faced with the same problems she left behind, though: she has no money, no trade skills, no friends, and is still recovering from a terrible, ''terrible'' alcohol addiction.

Although her efforts to do better initially seem doomed to failure, she quickly befriends [[AscendedExtra Quill-Weave]], an Argonian writer who takes pity on her and asks her to take a letter to a friend in another town. Katia fares no better than before, but Quill-Weave refuses to give up on Katia, and it begins to look like the Khajiit might leave her problems behind her -- but at every step, events conspire to drive her back to her old habits, to the point that her "bad luck" [[CosmicPlaything starts to seem engineered...]]
