    Summary

    Although the immediate threat of HADES and the Eclipse have been stopped, peace is only momentary. Aloy has barely survived the struggle, physically, but her mind may not have been so lucky. No closer to understanding her bond with Elisabet Sobeck, and with the best hopes of rebuilding GAIA and the various subfunctions still buried beneath the Earth, the race to piece it all together has begun. What she discovers in the process, however, is unlike anything she could have imagined... or feared.

    Summary

    Sometimes fate provides you with a second chance. When it does, you take it. Aloy saw the chest pad of the surprisingly well preserved environmental suit reading "cryo-stasis," and froze. Could Elisabet Sobeck, the woman she'd searched for all this time, still be alive?

    She wasn't about to waste the opportunity.

    Summary

    Aloy is used to the look in people's eyes when they regard her.
    Hatred.Mistrust. Disgust. Sometimes, careful curiosity. Even rarer, cautious friendliness. An unreprehended smile, almost never.
    The looks have changed since she became a brave, and again after she left the Sacred Lands, but they are never that different.

    She has a mountain of problems more pressing than helping a drunk Oseram find the murderers of his sister. The search for answers and revenge has driven her out of the Sacred Lands and a sense of urgency she can't explain yet spurns her on.

    But there's something about the grief and fury in his eyes that feels so close to her own, that Aloy can't turn her back on.
    There is something else in his eyes she can't turn away from either.

    Summary

    The first time Nil saw you it was through the wooden bars of a cage. Your face, covered in dirt, turned upwards to meet his as he approached. He had a calm yet fearsome visage and wore a red crested Carja helmet that bragged of military prowess. You had watched him effortlessly slaughter the men who enslaved you and now he was moving towards you with that same savage grace. (previously Nil's Stray)

    Summary

    Discoveries; or, Aloy Lets Her Hair Down.

    After the fight at the Spire, Aloy finally has some time to herself and this includes figuring out what she's been missing out on. The trouble is, she doesn't have any experience when it comes to these things. Luckily, her good friend Talanah is eager to help her bag a certain Captain.

    And yes, you read the tags right: there is some Aloy/Talanah action in here, but it's not in a romantic way... More like a sexy mentor and apprentice relationship *wink*

    Summary

    Erend is sure his fate is too much for him to bear. His shoulders are strong, but not strong enough to carry his sisters legacy.
    As he hunts for Ersa's murderers, he teams up with Aloy, the Nora huntress he had met months ago back in the embrace.
    But their quest for Ersa's fate shows Erend that being broken is no excuse, and that there are fates in the world that are worse than his.

    If she can carry the world, maybe he can carry a city. Shoulders are muscle, after all, and maybe he can make her load lighter if he just carries his own.

    Maybe, if he gets strong enough, she'll let him help carry hers.

    Summary

    Machines were easy to understand. They always followed the same patterns, the same routines. Yara could predict what a machine would do as easily as breathing. If given a downed machine she was certain with time she could figure out every function and how it operated.

    People, those were what she found difficult.

    Understanding the Banuk around her had been a challenge all her life, but at least she was familiar with how they lived and behaved. At least her cousin Mor, and her friend Yash were there to help her. She knew her place in the werak. But when the Carjans come to Banuk lands under Jiran's orders, she's taken from everything she's ever known. Yara had always dreamed of venturing past the borders of the frozen wilds. But not like this.

    Now she finds herself struggling to survive in a war that threatens to tear apart everything she's ever known. She must betray her people to help the Carjan resistance, support a usurper to dethrone a mad king. And uncover a plot more sinister than what Jiran has planned.
