    Summary

    The Outsider, long used to being a program, hardly remembers his time in the Void that Was. It died when he did, and everything that was magic went with it. Delilah, in search of more power, more augments, and more destruction, cares little for the gods of old and Emily is the one who has to pay the price.

    And now, the Void is waking up.

    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

    The Outsider doesn't know why he's here. He can feel the Void calling to him, but he is intrigued by the way in which Corvo's pain resonates with him when it shouldn't affect him in any way. He's seen many empires fall and many lives shattered in the name of many causes. He's seen unimaginable destruction and horror, and too much death, but he's barely ever found himself feeling involved in any of it. The closest he got to feeling anything more than mild interest was when he marked the rat boy, and even then he'd only felt mild disappointment in the end, a hint of remorse at the loss of so many other futures. He supposes that his mistake of getting involved in saving Corvo when he was a boy is behind all this, but he feels like he couldn't have avoided that. In all the glimpses of Corvo's futures he's been able to see, he's always intrinsically entwined with the Outsider in a way the god cannot begin to explain.

    Or: the Outsider's 'fascination' with Corvo starts earlier than Corvo might have thought, and allows Delilah to get away with a lot. Featuring: lots of long sentences, very little dialogue, and lots of Corvo thinking. Also lots of canon divergence in terms of plot and characters.

    Summary

    Emily died. It kept repeating in his head whenever he was still. Emily died. He failed. Again. The only good, pure thing in his life, was gone forever. Not even a heart with a shadow of her spirit was left.

    (He had failed once again, he had let her die, he couldn't save her, he couldn't save her, he couldn't save either of them.)

    Emily died.

    And he had let her fall.

    Summary

    The first time Corvo truly felt the god's heavy gaze settle on him was when he had the High Overseer's life in his hands—and decided not to end it. It was sudden; one moment he pressed the brand into Campbell's face with nothing but satisfaction at the screams, the next a weight seemed to settle on his back. He immediately looked around, using his dark vision of course, but there was nothing, no one else. Only the pricking sensation of being watched.

    Summary

    “Daddy!” Emily yells, squirming in the strangers grip, and Corvo can feel his heart plummet.
    “Em,” he shouts back, prepared to give chase, but the stranger is coming towards him, his grip secure and well-practiced. And Emily—Emily is grinning through her tear-streaked face, her dark hair partially out of her braid, proud. Corvo hurries to meet them halfway, barely sparing a glance for the stranger. He doesn’t matter, it’s Emily, something is wrong—gods above, why hasn’t he paid better attention?

    Summary

    Corvo Attano considers himself a man of simple pleasures, if complex circumstances. He never asked for this. But now that he has the Outsider's final gift, he intends to use it to better the world that he remains tethered to. But so too, is he connected to the Void.

    The Outsider just couldn't bear to see him disappear.
