    Summary

    “There are options, Daud,” Corvo had said quietly. If the situation were different Daud might have laughed at the absurdity of being treated like a teenage girl who was in distress over an unwanted pregnancy and contemplating an abortion. “She’s – the girl isn’t your responsibility. There are… orphanages. Good ones. Or the Oracular Order. It wouldn’t be hard to find a childless couple who want a daughter.”

    The Outsider once told Daud his story was close to ending and not even he could escape it. Between dealing with the memories that won't leave him no matter how much he tries to wash them away and the existence of a girl whose only crime is to be half of her mother, it's not easy to pick up the pieces, but Daud needs to start somewhere and the road of recovery has never been an easy one to walk. Something is rotten in the heart of Dunwall and he can feel himself spiralling downwards with the cycle of history.

    It’s all been leading to this.

    Summary

    “Cursed Daud hides in the world and lives still.”


    For nearly twenty years, Daud has lived an uneventful life under an assumed name in the port town of Baleton, his killing days far behind him and his Void abilities dried to ash in his blood.

    On a cold night in 1855 during the Month of Rain, the smell of the Void unexpectedly fills the air and Daud’s quiet life is torn apart by a horrific attack at the hands of an incomprehensible enemy.

    Daud once again has the attention of the Outsider, but for reasons that he never could have predicted.

    Forced out of retirement, an aging Daud must face his greatest enemy yet – an enemy that threatens his life, his sanity and the very fabric of reality itself.

    Summary

    "This isn't what I wanted," Billie snarled, clenching her fists.

    "Then what do you want?" Daud pressed. "Freedom? Money? For the Empress to not want to slice open both of our throats?"

    "I'll settle for the right world."

    Billie walks the line between two very different Karnacas. In one, a fading Daud insists that her hallucinations are the doing of the Outsider, and can be stopped with his death. In another, Alexandria Hypatia searches for her own truth as well as Billie's.

    All Billie wants is to go home.

    Summary

    The boy gave each of them a glance, his fingers tight and fumbling on the mask. He seemed caught between hunching out of sight and straightening to make his meager body match the iron of his gaze. A Whaler pushed him forward, and he refused to stumble when he looked Corvo in the eye.

    “I’m Daud,” he said, his jaw tight.

    Corvo stared.

    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

    Corvo wasn’t a tamed hound, waiting to bite and bark whenever the Loyalists bade him to. If the Admiral wanted him to weaken the Lord Regent and his allies, he would do so on his own terms, by his own choice.

    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

    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

    I was commissioned to write some Daud/Outsider smut that involved altar sex, bloodplay/drinking, dom/sub relations, some sort of bondage, and The Outsider having they/them pronouns. Really enjoyable to work on! Thank you very much commissioner!

    Summary

    Over the years in his position as Overseer with the Abbey of the Everyman, Teague Martin had become increasingly obsessed with the Void and like many before him - allowed it to consume him fully, stopping at nothing to find a way to win an audience with The Outsider. In the final days of 1830, Overseer Martin acquired a book outlining a ritual so unspeakably blasphemous that an Overseer performing it would surely open the door to the Void wide, and Martin would catch the Outsider's attention at last. He had only to wait for the Fugue Feast to unleash his errant mind, and feed his rampant hunger.

    Summary

    - “My mother warned me never to make an enemy of a witch.” An AU where Corvo is a witch (optionally marked by the Outsider) and Daud attempts to stay on his good side. -
    Daud has no information on Delilah to begin with. But following rumours, nothing like a Witch to help figuring out the whereabouts and plans of another. If only it wasn't so difficult to win Corvo's favour.

    Summary

    Daud the Assassin had a job— kill the Empress. He didn't, he saved me instead. My daughter and I. I will have him help me restore my throne, but for now, I can wait. Corvo and Emily are enough for now. Aren't they?

    — - —

     

    Martin informed us that, thanks to the chaos I'd caused, suspicion on him had been removed. He'd made an agreement with Slackjaw and was campaigning to take Campbell's place. That made Daud uncomfortable.

    It made me uncomfortable, too.

    But I was easily distracted by certain things.

    And, it seemed, so was Daud.

    "Fuck, Attano..."
