Friendly Brynjolf

Brynjolf is marriable and can be a follower. Compatible with Hearthfire but doesn't require it.
Nightingales need to stick together. Brynjolf should not tell you about "important things". And he will not. Instead, he will marry you and kill your enemies. And look, his ugly hood - it's gone!

1. Finish the Skeleton Key storyline.
2.a To make Brynjolf show his nice face (and to get his Guild Master's Hood as a prize) punch him with your fist. He well deserved it.
2.b To make him follow you and do your bidding tell him that you need his help, as with regular followers.
2.c.1 Equip the Amulet of Mara. (To obtain it or to make marriage option available you should talk to Maramal.)
2.c.2 Talk to Brynjolf. Enjoy him.
If he has no "interested" and follower's options - change location and talk to him again.
Sometimes Brynjolf will say ridiculous things. But he will stay himself all the time. For me his words worked fine... when you love someone and have him nearby - it is not a big deal if he says gibberish.

. Brynjolf has follower's and marriage dialogues.
. You can divorce him and remarry.
How to divorce: throw The Bond of Matrimony out of your inventory (all of them), dismiss Brynjolf if he is your current follower, talk to him and say that you want a divorce. WARNING. This option works for vanilla marriage (resets marriage quests). If you are using other mods altering marriage system it might break them or your other marriages. So if you want to divorce - use the divorce option of the mod you got married with.
. Compatible with Hearthfire.
. Brynjolf sees when his Dragonborn spouse takes off the clothes, comes near and can be undressed too. (No new textures or animations added.) For him not to notice you naked ask him not to stalk you.

Unobvious features.
. After the wedding he begins to buy stolen items.
. Whenever Lover's Comfort is being added to you, it is being added to him as well. Thus he is the only not-Dovahkiin in Skyrim who is able to take advantages of the married life. You can check it only by typing in console
"00020545".HasMagicEffect 0010d96c
while having Lover's Comfort on you - the result must be
Has Magic Effect >> 1.00
I bothered doing this because it was kind of unfair in vanilla: you both just have done something to each other, you are feeling good and he is not.
. His morality is set to Violence Against Enemies, so he will steal things when you ask him. But he cannot steal and sneak at the same time, be careful.
. He sleeps in his bed while living at Cistern.
. He looks at you when names you Guild Master during the ceremony.
. Some fixes for Brynjolf's original dialogues. Unlocked his dialogue in Bronze Water Cave. Unlocked a line, other than "Sorry, lass", which he is supposed to say when should not speak with you. These lines were blocked by glitchy "Sorry, lass".
. Brynjolf and the guests don't leave the wedding ceremony until it's finished.

. He won't be saying exactly what is written in subtitles. He will say something suitable for the situation, but not exactly the same words.
. He won't call you "love", the most tender word you'll hear from him will be "lass" or "lad".

Divorce Brynjolf if he is your husband. Dismiss him if he is your current follower. Leave the location where he is. Save the game and disable this mod in Skyrim's launcher.

Details and cheating.
The main quest of this mod starts working when you enter a location with Brynjolf. So if nothing works try to reenter that location. You can force this quest to run (even before the completion of the Skeleton Key quests) - try this when you are in the same location as Brynjolf:
SetStage FBBrynjolfLovesHisLass 0
or if the previous line doesn't work:
SetStage FBBrynjolfLovesHisLass 10
For manual divorce:
SetStage FBBrynjolfLovesHisLass 85
For manual uninstallation (if he is your husband divorce him first, then type this line):
SetStage FBBrynjolfLovesHisLass 100

----- version 6.00

New features.
. Some lines added, so he will be able to comment on places he visits while following you.
. If you are married to Brynjolf and are in one and the same location with him, he detects when you get naked and comes to you, if there happens a bed (or anything suitable) nearby he will lay in it. If you talk to him at that time he will take off pieces of his clothes. No new textures or animations added, don't expect too much. To prevent him from this reaction ask him not to pursuit you.

Unobvious features.
. Some fixes for Brynjolf's original dialogues. Unlocked his dialogue in Bronze Water Cave. Unlocked a line, other than "Sorry, lass", which he is supposed to say when should not speak with you. These lines were blocked by glitchy "Sorry, lass".
. Brynjolf and the guests don't leave the wedding ceremony until it's finished.

----- version 5.01
Fixed 2 bugs of the version 5.00.

----- version 5.00
Compatibility with Hearthfire. Refactoring.

New feature.
. Divorce.

Unobvious features.
. He will actually sleep in his bed while living at Cistern, not stand by it all night long. This change is permanent: if you uninstall this mod, he will continue to sleep in bed anyways. I did so because I think it's a bug and bugs are to be fixed.
. Brynjolf will look at you during the Guild Master's ceremony when he should. (In the original game it appeares that he named Karliah Guild Master.)
. Just to make it clear. Bethesda created an option which allows you to make your follower a steward in a house you build in Hearthfire. This option will work for Brynjolf too, and I made sound for him.

----- version 4
The better version, I hope.

New features.
. Lass/lad in hellos and goodbyes.
. His morality is set to Violence Against Enemies.

----- version 3
Completely rewritten.

New features.
. Now this mod can be uninstalled accurately.
. Sometimes Brynjolf is glad when female Dovahkiin punches him. Not often, so try not to hurt him much.

This.İs.Awsome! Thanks very much :) Keep up the great work!

Got it to work finally

It's strange then. You sure you're finished the Skeleton Key? Normally you come back to Bryn, tell him that the Key has been returned to its place, then change locations and when you next speak with him he should have all wanted dialogues. Maybe the quests didn't completed as they should? If you're absolutely sure you're done with the Skeleton Key and that the mod is checked to load, make a save to be able to return to if things break. Then type in console:
setStage tg09post 200
then try to speak with him.
If it doesn't work either then try this too:
setStage tg09 200

It is checked
ilhe  [author] May 16 @ 1:19am 
Looks like game doesn't see the mod. Make sure it's checked in the launcher.
♥VolleyChic♥ May 15 @ 5:40pm 
Okay. I finished the skeleton key and I did the first thing and he says sorry lass. Cant talk. Help?

Hmm, just one question.. How can I download that mod? ( never done cheating + mods - so I'm completely new to this :D ) I really REALLY want that mod, because Bryn is my favourite character here in skyrim. And now it is like.. meh.. ugly new armor; can't see his face .. AND he is like "Go away! I don't wanna talk to you ever againn >.>" Please help !
Thanks for that brilliant idea! Great mod^^

The option to do this is just... *melts* I fell for him instantly and as I progressed into the storyline I was SO invested in all of the members of the guild, so I looked up if I could marry any of them at all (Since I was so new to skyrim back then.) And was crushed when I found I couldn't. It's a tragic trend that most people you can marry in skyrim are ones you hardly know. Like, aside from a few males and females (In the companions for example), you don't really get to marry anyone that you actually do a huge plot with. It's mostly just random inn keepers or miners that you stumble over or rescue. So Thank you.

Thank you for the appreciation! No, you don't need any hard code, you only need to make sure the mod is checked in the launcher.
