    Summary

    "I promise neither my Spymaster or Royal Protector worship the Outsider," Emily said. It was true, of course. Daud didn't worship the Outsider and the Outsider didn't worship himself—that would've been as silly as the idea of the Outsider taking on the role of Royal Protector. Khulan didn't look satisfied, but looked mildly relieved. "And if you must know why they're both so on edge..." Emily's expression grew grim. She felt Daud and the Outsider staring at her. "Your brothers turned my father into a drooling, gibbering mess. He was my new Protector's closest friend, you know. And I suppose my Spymaster is concerned you've come to finish the job. By all means, I imagine he'd be better off dead than in the state he's in now..."

    Khulan's face lost what little color hadn't already drained from it.

    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 know 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

    Takes place a couple of years after the events of the first game, in which Corvo encounters difficulties in the keeping of a dream journal. Sort of. There's sex dreams, and then actual sex, and then sex in a dream, all layered with a healthy garnish of existential angst.

    Sort of.

    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

    “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

    But home is where she could not call her parents “Mother” and “Father”, home is where she stopped being a child at the age of 12 when she had to pick a constant shadow, home is where she fell in love twice over, once safe in the arms of a shadow stained red and finally when she held the bundle of blue, Kaldwin blue fabric that made her heart flutter even after her rigorous training.

     

    It didn’t change the fact that she was born to rule, and trained as so. An Empress could never falter, never show emotion, never be seen as human.

     

    ... or a Character Study of Jessamine Kaldwin, just trying to live up to the Kaldwin legacy.

    Summary

    Whether Emily or Corvo is turned to stone is not the only turning point in the road to Delilah's coup. There are an infinity of different timelines; this is the one where Piero Joplin does not die in 1847 and Anton Sokolov does not retire. In this timeline, Piero drinks a lot of tea in the Void with Jessamine and worries about design considerations, and Anton is a grouchy old bastard who doesn't let anything slow him down from helping Emily.

    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.
