    Summary

    Правда сам Корво мог познакомить её разве что с заведующим кафедрой робототехники (он ей даже не увлекался, просто мужик был классный) Антоном Соколовым да парочкой своих приятелей из любимой пивнушки «Песья Яма».

    Summary

    “I chose you for a reason, Piero. Don’t disappoint me now.” The Outsider tsks.
    Joplin’s pulse is thudding in his ears. His clockwork had lived, but it wasn’t alive.
    There is something different about the clockwork man tonight, wasn’t there?
    It had a face, Joplin realizes with a start. Not a face that he recognized, but a face nonetheless, dark brown eyes staring up into the nothingness unblinkingly, skin bronze against the shocking white enamel of the augmentations.
    “It has to be alive,” Joplin whispers. “A soul. It needs… a soul.”
    The Outsider’s face twists into a smile.

     

    (In which Corvo Attano is a clockwork man: forged from flesh and metal in equal parts.)

    Summary

    (...) she might not even remember this scene in a couple of days, but that's the exact opposite of what Corvo wants. He wants her to think about him. Or, excuse him, he would love that very much. That's what he thinks when he rushes into the bathroom, pushes a random door, closes the toilet sit and climbs onto it. Clenches his fists. This is all it takes - thumping blood in between his fingers, eyes shut tight and a clear memory of the moment he wants to go back into.

    And there he is.

     

    (long story short: that's just Corvo testing the murky waters and learning about things that can and can't be fixed)

    Summary

    “Do you want to shame me, dear husband?” Beatrix’s thin knuckles go bloodless white around her fork. “Or is there another reason you would insist on making your disgrace to me, to our marriage so public? Have I done something wrong?” There is so much malice in her voice! She does not mean to sound so terribly upset, but she cannot keep her tone under control!
    “Delilah is my daughter, too,” Euhorn says firmly, though not unkindly. “Just as much as Jessamine—”
    Beatrix drops the fork to the table with a clatter, that awful darkness rearing again in her heart. “Don’t you dare compare your bastard to our child!”

    Summary

    Corvo should kill him. What did honor matter to a man who’d killed a completely defenseless woman in front of her child?
    Daud would never expect it. Make it a clean death, quick and simple.
    No, he deserved to suffer. Better to slide Daud’s own blade right under his ribs, right where he’d gutted Jessamine, and watch him retch his last few breaths on the rotting floor.
    Just like her.

    Summary

    “You must understand that she is not an ordinary girl. There are things that royalty are obligated to do because of their station in society, regardless of their own opinions on the matter. Marriage is one of those.” The matchmaker sets her cup down and presses her lips into a thin line. “It is about politics. It is about power. As Her Majesty’s father, I understand it is your desire to see your daughter as happy as possible. As Her Majesty’s Royal Protector and trusted advisor… I would hope you encourage her to think about her duties to her empire.”

    Morley's trading crisis is the least of Emily Kaldwin's problems when a mysterious letter arrives telling of disappearances within Morley.

    But when she finds the answers, it's bigger than she could have ever expected, and it may just change the world forever.

    Summary

    Years after losing the Outsider's interest, months after assassinating an Empress, Daud receives a visit he never expected. The Outsider has gifts for him again: a mystery named Delilah, and to help him find the truth, a mysterious clockwork heart.

    It speaks with the voice of a woman Daud murdered. It hates him. It tells him truths.

    What, in the end, could Daud's regret possibly mean to Jessamine Kaldwin?

    Summary

    Emily sobs and presses her cheek into his broad hand. “Please, Corvo, I don’t want to be the Empress. Court hates me, don’t they all? I don’t want to be their Empress.”
    Something inside of Corvo aches at his daughter’s words. “They do not hate you.” He brushes her tears away as softly as he can manage. They hate me, and what I have done for you. “I swear to you, they do not hate you.”

    Summary

    Hiram Burrows’ blood is still underneath Corvo’s nails when he arrives at the emergency meeting called by the lead ministers of Parliament.
    The Regency belonged to the High Minister of Parliament, did it not? No, it had belonged to Lord Burrows, but nobody could find Lord Burrows. It belonged to High Overseer Campbell. It belonged to Duke Olhouser. It belonged to whoever would be chosen via election from the nobility—
    Corvo sits in what had been Jessamine’s chair in the Parliamentary meeting hall in Tower as the lords and ladies bicker.
    It takes them time to notice that the very seat they’re arguing over has already been fulfilled, but when they do, the silence is stifling.
    There is still blood splattered across Corvo’s jacket, a little smear under his cheekbone.
    They have always been afraid of Corvo, of his nearly-permanent silence, of his blade, of his shadowing presence behind their Empress.
    “I will rule for my daughter,” Corvo rumbles. There is no room for question in his voice.

    Summary

    Corvo is not a special boy. He is just a boy. He sits on his mother’s lap and listens carefully to her stories. He plays with his sister. He plays with the other children in the streets and joins them in the childish dares and games that sometimes turn a little too dangerous. He watches his mother cook, he watches his sister watch the sea. He does his studies, as much as a poor child living in Serkonos can. He learns how to hold his own in a fight.

    And sometimes, at night, he peers into the little bit of special, tempered glass that he found under his bed and a boy with dark eyes gazes back at him.

     

    ; in which the outsider decides to visit corvo before he even gets to dunwall, but things don't go as planned, as the universe tends to do.

    Summary

    Would this have amused the black-eyed bastard, wherever he was? Oh Corvo, you try so hard to be good, don’t you? To deny your own nature, new and monstrous as it is to you. Sucking down the blood of sewer rats and stray hounds like that could ever satisfy you.

    Corvo should have stayed in Serkonos. The Outsider had been right, hadn’t he? One day, Corvo, you won’t be able to control it anymore. You’ll sink your teeth into a heart and you won’t know it’s hers until it’s too late.

    Summary

    There are moments that Jessamine wishes she could capture forever, keep trapped in glass frames like butterfly specimens—Corvo’s frame tucked behind her, a tentative hand cupping the barely-there bump of her belly over her nightgown as they laid together in her bed. The wonder and excitement on Corvo’s face when Jessamine told him that she’d started feeling the first soft flutters of the baby moving within her. These fleeting minutes where she was allowed to simply be Jessamine, where she had no duties and no titles.
