    Summary

    Our choices will always matter, to someone, somewhere. A single person could hold the fate of thousands in their hands.

    Daud knows what he holds, he knows what he can and should change. Because of this, Jessamine never falls under his blade. Dunwall doesn't descend into utter chaos. And his conscience remains free of guilt.

    Out of all the possibilities, the Outsider never expected this. Daud has somehow exceeded all his expectations.

    Summary

    One the symbol of death, the other a mystical guide; both lose it all and fumble into each other in the hopes of finding a way back to what they lost... or at least to a way to avenge it.

    Summary

    Corvo opened his eyes to the familiar darkness of his quarters.

    “I am not your friend,” he growled, still half-caught in that endless cold.

    "And yet, you speak to me." Corvo clenched his teeth and rolled his eyes at the disembodied voice that followed him from the Void. At least this one he didn’t have to hold in his hands as it beat a little quieter each day.
     

    Corvo and Daud take on a mad witch named Delilah.

    Sequel to It Seemed the Better Way.

    Summary

    “Have you been as bored as I have? The city is on its feet again. The plague is cured, the conspiracies revealed, Emily is safe, and you’re unpacking boxes at a pub. Awfully dull, and quite frankly a waste of your skills.” Corvo watched, expressionless, as the Outsider carried on. “My dear Corvo. How would you like a job?”

    Summary

    "I won't leave you unprotected," he said. "I'll find you a sufficient replacement."

    "I'm afraid no such man exists any longer," Emily said.

    "You're an empress, very powerful, you know, but you do not know everything," the Royal Protector said. "You can't know that."

    "Find me an outsider, a foreigner who will attach himself to his position with as much fierce loyalty as you have displayed in as little time as you had to do so, a man who can fight like a devil and speak with the eloquence of a poet and we'll see," Emily said.

    Summary

    In an Empire where Serkonos rules over the other Isles, Royal Protector Jessamine Kaldwin can only watch helplessly as her charge, Emperor Corvo Attano, is murdered by an assassin whose face is chillingly familiar.

    Framed for the murder of her Emperor and lover, and sentenced to death for her supposed crime, Jessamine is saved the day before her execution by a group calling themselves the Loyalists. A handful of disgraced officers and disillusioned elites, they want to see Corvo’s rightful heir, his daughter Emilia, inherit the throne. But they need Jessamine to remove the Regent’s supporters first— and despite the fact that Jessamine knew some of them before she and Corvo were betrayed, she does not know if she can trust their intentions now.

    Summary

    Scenes from the universe of A Different Kind Of Danger

     

    Emily hopped up and walked right up to Dodson. She scrutinized him, barely coming up to his ribs. The young man's expression stayed in that cool mask of patience. Emily decided he looked older than he probably was, and was kind of handsome. Like a prince in one of the story books her mother had used to read her. Even with his black eye and the scar on his chin.

    "What exactly will you be doing for my father? What are your duties?" she asked, putting on her best impression of her mother.

    "Whatever Lord Corvo requires of me, Your Majesty," Dodson replied.

    Summary

    Emily grew bored of her studies with Callista, and of hide and seek. Now finding herself heading downstairs, she stumbles upon the Pits, of the Hound 'Pits' Pub. Soft whimpers drew her closer to a newly orphaned pup of one of the poor hounds that had been bred to fight for the entertainment of the people. Emily seeing the poor animal as herself, lonely and motherless, decides to take the pup in as her own. But what will Corvo think of the new arrival, now taking up residence in his own bedroom? Better yet, what will the Outsider think to Corvo's softer side? And of Jessamine, who Emily has conveniently named the pup after?

    Emily smiled broadly as she sat upon the carpet, laying the pup on her legs. “I think I’ll call her Jessamine.”

    Corvo nearly choked as he took a swig of his drink, he wiped his mouth with the back of his hand. “You’re naming a hound after your mother.”

    Summary

    She hit him. He blinked, fixed his glasses and let go of her hands. She stared, horrified and surprised and threw her arms around his neck, kissing his cheek. He held her close, held her tight, like Corvo would when she had a nightmare.

    "It's alright, little dove..." he whispered. "I've got you. Everything's going to be alright..."

    Except it wasn't—that's not what he'd said in the Void.

    Summary

    He bowed his head and went to his knees like the other parishioners, listening to the young man's sermon. He let the words wash over him like waves on the shore, standing as resolutely unmoved as a stone monolith in his own convictions—or, technically, lack there of—but appreciating the poetry of the young Overseer's words. Daud sank down beside him.

    "I'm not sure if you're just a smug, over-arrogant fuck or a pure-and-simple idiot," Daud murmured.

    "Perhaps some of both," the Royal Protector said. They stayed through the whole sermon. At the close, "His name is Liam Byrne. His faith is strong and he will see it take him far... if he manages to find his own strength."

    "Planning on meddling with an Overseer? You are an idiot..."

    Summary

    He doesn't expect it when his comrades turn their backs on him and deliberately poison him. What's for the worse, they bind him and offer him as a sacrifice to the heretic God. It looks like the God has other plans for him, though, and rather than accepting his death, the Outsider decides to keep him for his own.

    Summary

    It had been years since the black-eyed bastard had spoken to him at one of the shrines, rarely as Daud sought them out anymore, and even longer since he’d appeared to him in his dreams. So when he fell asleep only to open his eyes to the upside-down, torn-apart world of the Void, Daud could do little more than heave an annoyed sigh.
     

    Daud doesn't kill the Empress. But he may as well have, for all the good it does him.

    Summary

    Corvo doesn't know how to start a new life with Emily while he's still trying to protect her from Jessamine's killers, but a dilapidated house in a forgotten part of Dunwall is a good enough place for them to stay quiet and unassuming for a while.

    Or it might have been, until Emily starts drawing pictures of her friend with black eyes, and Corvo hears footsteps in the house.
