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.
. Thieves Guild members and Maven can come to the wedding as Brynjolf's guests.

. 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

Descriptions of changes for all except the oldest versions are available in the Chage Notes tab.

I subscribed and I thought it downloaded, but is there another place I need to download for it to work in the game? I've never used a mod before.

Maybe Steam is being weird but it's been working, now all of a sudden it won't? He stays a follower for approx 5 seconds and then he turns around and walks away slowly. The dialogue options are still the same but the follower ones no longer work

happymom12345 Wrong mod. Most likely you're speaking about "Brynjolf has time for you" which is here
happymom12345 Dec 28, 2017 @ 2:09pm 
Wont let me follow him???

After I did the Dabella quest he says to follow him to 'show me' something. Then he doesnt go anywhere and i can continue having that convorsation several times. Help??

Is this compatable with "Brynjolf has time for you!" ?
Gothicat137x Jul 14, 2017 @ 5:31pm 
I've done everything you suggested in the description, and the follower part is working but I can't marry Brynjolf. :(

Yeah, it seems like my regular folowers can ride those etherial horses. Might be a mod incompatability.
Magister Ludi II May 24, 2017 @ 5:51pm 
I think I do, though I've mainly been riding horses with a mod follower. Need to check my regular ones then.

JynxRockette Make sure the mod is enabled, change location and try to speak with him again.

Magister Ludi II He is handled by the game's follower system as a regular follower. He should do what any other follower would do. Vanilla followers cannot ride horses, so if you want him to ride a horse you should use a mod that makes vanilla followers ride horses.
