Kind've the first thing you need to think about when writing a fanfic, especially a crossover fic, is why. Do you think the universes work well together? Even if they don't (like, say, Fallout and MLP), do you have ideas for how to make them work well together?

Not to discourage you, but writing a fic is hard work. You've got to put some thought into how the universe is going to work. It's one thing to just swap out some names and ponify some locations and end up with a piece that is neither distinct nor in keeping with its parents, and another to create a seamless, enthralling world.

So, set up some ground rules. Establish how you want the universe to work, how it relates to Equestria and how it relates to Tamriel. Create some factions and motives, do you want to reuse the ones from the game or create your own? Most importantly, think about how you're going to make engaging and interesting characters. Dovahkiin especially suffers from the fact that he/she is a bland block of muscle with no personality. It's why so many different people can see their character as a reflection of themselves, but it's not conducive to having an interesting main character. Play around with different personalities, seeing how they work off each other and develop. If you find someone that you really like, but don't see as being your main character, try having them in a supporting role or as a villain. And of course, don't forget to have fun. It sounds really cliched, but the single thing most important to finishing a work is enjoying it.

I like your enthusiasm and good luck.

Another thing to consider is spelling, punctuation and grammar. A great many prospective readers (myself included) tend to move away from stories whose mechanics are poor, even if the story is done well. If the prose is unclear and hard to read due to errors, not even the most well-crafted world, plot and characters will make the work enjoyable to read.

Plus, it can just get confusing if proper capitalization and punctuation aren't adhered to. Ex:

"I helped my uncle, Jack, off his horse."
becomes
"I helped my uncle jack off his horse."
