    Summary

    He's heard the saying "When one door closes, another door opens."

    He wants to call bullshit on it, because it isn't always true. Sometimes when a door closes nothing else opens, or sometimes nothing has to close for a door to open.

    Of course, there's more to the saying, though hardly anyone ever mentions that part.

    Summary

    Corvo is no heretic. He has never prayed at a tainted shrine, never dreamed of darkest Void or cradled in his hands whalebone branded black. He has no love for the Abbey of the Everyman, places no faith in the Spirits, and the Outsider?
    Don’t be foolish. Corvo is no heretic.

    DotO spoilers implied/post non-lethal ending

    It takes more than learning to see through different eyes. Feel across new flesh. He has to decide who he is, first. What he wants, second.

    Summary

    "Perhaps you'll find another soul to torture,” Corvo teases, “Another tired middle-aged father who is so desperate for your fickle attention."

    “There is no one else,” the Outsider replies suddenly, voice fierce. His brow pinches just barely. “There is no other soul like yours. When you’re gone, I’ll wait to find you again, when your soul is reincarnated in a thousand or so years.”

    Corvo’s heart is thudding in his ears and the Mark burns hot on his skin, under his wrappings, like it's about to burst into flames.

    And then, as though caught being too sentimental, the Outsider’s hands drop slowly from Corvo’s face. He looks away, voice quiet when he says, “Don't die, beloved. It would be so troublesome for me.”

    Corvo Attano and the Outsider, in a dance not yet occurred, and so very, very human.
