A Real-Life Wedding Proposal Inspired By A Skyrim Item
Well now, isn't that sweet.
If you're a role-playing fan, chances are, you've played The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. You also might recall a special item called the Amulet of Mara, which is used to unlock various romantic segments. By using this option, you have the chance to marry other characters.
Bet you didn't know it could be used in real life, too. As Kotaku reported, Sarah Briody received a proposal for marriage, and the Amulet of Mara was involved:
"I introduced [my fiance] to Skyrim--and he enjoys every minute of the game. I love watching him play because we both have very different game styles. We do play other multiplayer games together when we have the opportunity."
At first, she didn't know what was happening when her soon-to-be fiance handed her the amulet. And of course, he had the best line prepared for when she put it on: "Is that an Amulet of Mara? I'm surprised someone like you isn't spoken for." An image of the ring on her finger popped up online not long after, and Briody calls it, perhaps fittingly:
"Best. Proposal. Ever."
So, what do you think? Would you propose with a video game item?
