new to vampirism, not sure if I screwed up (hostile librarian)
I think this is my 6th or 7th playthrough, and it's my first time trying vampirism, but I have a problem. I didn't get the elder scroll back from everybody's favourite Orcish librarian back at the College before going to the Soul Cairn (like I now realize I should have), and now that I'm a vampire, he attacks me on sight. how the eff do I get the scroll and continue this quest?

you can try calm illusion spells, bend will, or obtain the scroll via console

Edit : you cant get it via console cuz you need to complete the quest. you can try this though:
Open the console and type help and the name of your quest inside " ". Then when you get the quest's id you can type getstage <quest id>. This will show you your stage of the quest, like 1 or 2. The next thing you have to do is to look up the quest in order to see the stages in skyrim uesp wiki http://www.uesp.net/wiki/Skyrim:Scroll_Scouting then open the console and type
setstage <the quest id> and set the stage after getting the scroll from the orc. It is a little complicated i know but you can do it :D add me on steam i can tell you more details

I got ready with some Fortify Illusion clothes and potions, loaded the save and went back to the Arcaneum... and he didn't turn hostile, so I went through the dialogue as normal and bought the scroll. good news, right? unfortunately, now Devion turns hostile. I loaded the save before approaching him 5 times and every time he turned hostile. the bizarre thing is that he's the only one that's hostile towards me, so everyone else in the fort starts attacking him, including an armored troll that someone let loose.

this is maddening, one of the options for getting into the Soul Cairn and advancing the quest is choosing vampirism, but apparantly that risks making the quest impossible to complete without console commands? am I missing something, or is that a problem in the quest's design?

1/ Dawnguard should remove the hostility when you're a stage 4 vampire from NPCs. Although if you turn into a Vampire Lord in front of them, or turn up somewhere in the VL form, obviously NPCs will aggro. This suggests something's wrong in your game, hopefully someone will be along who might know what it is and/or how to fix it.
2/ Prior to Dawnguard, only stage 4 vampirism made people hostile on sight, so you could try the thing which worked in those days - find someone sleeping and feed from them. (Or sneak up on someone and use the Vampire Seduction thingy, but I never got on very well with that.)
