Dawnguard: Surrealistic Serana bug? [Potencial Spoilers]
So here's what I dare say is an annoying bug I've never encountered before. I enter the ruined tower part of the castle Vohilkar (or however you spell it) searching for the vampire mother of the vampire lady thats stalking me (Serana) ...and although she won't stop going on and on about her family and their obviously dysfunctional relationship she dosen't respond to the fact I just found her long lost mother's diary... at all. No conversation options none what so ever. I found on some walktrough that once you locate the diary (which I have) you talk to the vampire lady with the troubled family and then the quest goes on. Apparantly my Serana is sabotaging this particular part of the quest by giving me the silent treatement, Possibly beacuse she's like most women and say one thing but mean something completely different and she doesn't actually want to find her mother or because she's cursed with a bug...

A bug that I cannot seem to shake. I've tried reloading the area by exiting it and re-entering it, loaded an older save, not picking up the journal at all, simply stand at the annoying little quest marker that seems to point at a bench, ask Serana nicely and telling her she's got nice hair and looked for the bug on the big interweblythingie.

Someone more intelligent then me or simply better at talking to troubled vampire ladies could probably see a fix to this but I stand at a loss, because this bug compined with the bug that doesn't bring the great Alduin to bear in the whole read-a-mystical-scroll-and-see-through-time thingie makes for a poor Skyrim :( I mean aside from the Dragonborn dlc that leaves two out of three mainquests rendered as useless as a third nipple. Anyone know a cure?

And in my defence (in regards to any sort of ''you male sjovenistic ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ moments'') that part about women saying one thing and meaning something completely different is restricted to my experience with women and my experience alone. And therefore I cannot and will not speak on behalf of the whole female population currently inhabiting this planet... or any other for that matter.

And I would also like to take this opportunity in advance to apologise to any female vampires with a troubled past, on any or whatever planet should they be offended by the contents of this and previous texts...

...and to people with three nipples should they find themselves insulted

well considering most female vampires just talk to men to lure them into an act of pure sin (sex) before feeding on them i'd say your at that point in time when you become her meal( oh and don't worry about your body she'll find a use for it) if this last comment confuses you just watch From dusk till dawn!

Did you read the journal before trying to speak with Serena?

Now it make sense why you can't marry Serana!

i've sided with the dawnguard because that whole vampire family just strikes me as bonkers, i've got no choise but to read it before picking it up but what is a setstage command? that sounds interesting!

No one? setstage command?
frogprincess_q4 Mar 7, 2013 @ 3:28pm 
setstage command forces the game to move to a particular stage in a quest. It can cause bugs, but it can get you out of a pickle as a last resort. This page can tell you more http://elderscrolls.wikia.com/wiki/Console_Commands_%28Skyrim%29
