    Summary

    Corvo woke up in Coldridge Prison, missing an arm, information and his memories. His body was altered, artificially augmented without his permission. In order to survive, he must learn to use what's been done to him, but Corvo has no allies, no help, and his only friend is an illegal VI downloaded straight into his brain.

    But Corvo will do anything, anything to save Emily.

    This is the CyberPunk AU that No One Asked For.

    Summary

    "You would be happy to sit back and watch the Empress march down that road? See her father's heart break as she becomes the monster you've tried to bury?"

    Choices always matter to someone, somewhere. Sooner or later, in ways that cannot be fathomed, those consequences come back to you. Fifteen years ago the assassin Daud murdered an Empress but saved her daughter; three years ago in Karnaca he vanished without a trace. Now Emily Kaldwin's life has come crashing down around her again, and this time, neither Corvo nor Daud are around to save her. She will take back what's hers - no matter the cost.

    Killing is easy once you start.

    Summary

    After narrowly escaping an assassination attempt, Corvo insists Emily needs a new teacher; a skilled assassin, who can show her how to survive even the most deadly of attacks. However, the man he has in mind has been retired for over ten years, to say nothing of his history with their family.

    Summary

    A year after Delilah's coup, Emily Kaldwin is settling back into the throne. However, when the Outsider reveals that his powers are waning, the Empress is forced to partner with a person she very much would like to have avoided until the end of time. The Void may be threatening to end the world as she knows it, but it also sings to Emily in her very bones, and there are certain things she cannot deny no matter the circumstances.

    Her attraction to the man she should have no association with, is one of them.

    Summary

    Whalers can go off for days on missions. That’s why no one pays much mind to Malon’s absence until the day of the drop-off rolls around and he’s still not back. They don’t dare to think that the same thing that happened to Sanders will happen to him.

     

    ; a funeral for the first whaler, though definitely not the first funeral.

    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

    Dunwall is in ruins.

    A rat plague has brought the city to its knees, and Lord Regent Hiram Burrows has done nothing to fix things. The Empress is dead, her heir missing, presumed dead. Her bodyguard, chained up and locked in Coldridge Prison, accused of driving his sword through her chest.

    But Lady Elizabeth Bushford knows the truth. She knows what the Lord Regent has done--knows that it was he who organised Jessamine's assassination--and she will stop at nothing to avenge her fallen friend. Even if it meant she'll have to call upon Jessamine's killer for help, the Knife of Dunwall himself.

    Nobles don't seem to last very long around Dunwall.

    Especially not when the Lord Regent wants your head.

    Summary

    Maybe he’s dealt with this before or he’s simply too tired to care because the man just nods minutely and asks, “what’s your name?”

    “Montgomery, sir.” He tries to say it as clearly as possible. “And what did you say yours was?”

    “It’s Daud.”

    Montgomery promptly stops listening right around that point as Daud directs him to some kid with hair that looks like honey, because he’s completely dumbfounded. That man could not have just said his name is Dad, could he?

    Summary

    She’s stayed as long as she can, lingering just outside the docks of Dunwall, but when they send ships after her, she has no choice but to retreat. She holds out hope that her message has gotten to the Royal Protector and that he somehow managed to escape Delilah, but her hopes are smashed when she reads of the witch’s successful takeover of Dunwall Tower, and hears whispers of two new statutes adorning her throne room, the artworks bearing a striking resemblance to the dethroned Empress and her Royal Protector.
     
    The only hope she has now is to find another who is marked by the Outsider.

    Meagan Foster didn't arrive in time to get Corvo or Emily out of Dunwall, so she sets out to find the only other Marked One she knows of - Daud.

    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.
