Hadvar is a bro. Let it be written.
Unrelated: I'm continually amazed by what the modding community is capable of. Just 10 minutes ago I decided that I want to roleplay a charismatic adventurer (disgraced and then exiled former knight actually) trying to carve out a living in Skyrim, and I wanted to do something like Dragon Age and One Piece - pick up followers who would join me on my journey to.... whatever. No specific goal yet. I wondered how I was going to do the whole "let's stay here for a few days, help the local folks before we move on thing". Turns out there IS a mod that lets me do that. Who would've thunked??
Now I just need to find a mod that puts in voice-acted squad banter. *nostalgic sigh*
But in Skyrim, it's one of few things that is really badly done. Not only are they just some no-name pack mule NPCs with no dialogue and personality except maybe a few special lines when told to carry stuff etc. but they actually get in the way more than they help, take wrong paths, pulling everything on their way, cant keep up and just stop following sometimes and they can die, a bit too easily too(which would be bad even if I wasn't playing dead is dead). It's better to just stick to summons and carry weight enchants and have a hubby cooking dinner at my Lakeview manor, waiting for me to get home and playing with children
I would love a mod that makes followers and companions a bit more fun, diverse and actually helpful though without making them essential but also not permanently killed when they fall (maybe a resurrection spell or first aid or something). As well as some personality, banter etc. But then again I dont have high hopes for such a mod. It would need a lot of people to pull off well for the voice acting and everything.

I always side with Raylof, because Imperial armor is worth more than Stormcloak armor. Does that make me a bad person?
I always followed Ralof, as I thought that was the only thing you could do.

Besides, they tried to execute me and it wouldn't any sense at all to assassinate the emperor then:P
I mourn the loss of a man of true vision and talent. You were my idol, Mr. Giger.
You gave faces to my dreams and nightmares and sparked my imagination throughout my entire life. You will be missed.

I always went with Hadvar, cuz I liked his voice and honestly, I always got the feeling he felt bad about having to follow Capt. Bitchface's orders to kill me. Shame you can't marry him. He's kind of cute.
So.. no news on Dragonborn for PC? a month of exclusivity isn't enough?
Well, Bethesda have said that they are focusing on getting Dragonborn to PS3 before any of the other DLC and there are rumors circulating about them wanting to do a simultaneous release of it on PC and PS3, so I realy hope those rumors are wrong. Ah well, looks like they're not getting my money until it goes on sale since in a few days I won't actualy have the time to play it until summer. Yes, I am bitter about it.
