Patrick Lenton is a writer and an avid player of the game The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, which would take about twenty minutes to explain, so just accept that it's a fantasy video game and move on. While playing the game, Lenton came across a dog.

This dog changed the course of Lenton's (video game) life. Upon choosing to adopt him, Lenton unknowingly set up a chain of reactions that are dramatic, epic, engrossing, hilarious—everything that you wouldn't expect from a Twitter story about video games.
