    Corvo/Daud/Jessamine---
    "I don't know why I want this, but I want an AU where Daud doesn't assassinate Jessamine for whatever reason and instead this OT3 happens, again for whatever reason"

    Basically Daud grows a conscience just in time, works with the Empress and the Lord Protector to save the Empire and doesn't realize that he may be falling for both of them. Except that he absolutely is.

    Summary

    4 word prompts that turned into a story.

    Jessamine Kaldwin was empress in a city fighting a plague.
    Corvo Attano was her loyal bodyguard on a warpath with the entire nobility of Dunwall.
    Daud was the assassin that only changed sides because Burrows had gone insane.
    He was also their new spymaster.
    With one or two gang wars brewing, the leftovers of Burrows' betrayal still on the loose, the flood of the century threatening the already destabilized city, and a mystery whispered in dreams, what could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    A rabbi, a bodyguard, and a mob boss walk into a coffee shop — for most people, this would be nothing more than the tell-tale beginning of a truly awful joke. For Corvo Attano, security chief to CEO Jessamine Kaldwin of Dunwall, Inc., the punchline hit rather too close to home.

    Summary

    Daud was no hero. He did not delude himself to have learnt from all of his mistakes, or to be able to correct any or all of them in the years he had left before the Void took him. But as he looked out over the Wrenhaven one morning just before dawn, he supposed he should be glad. His mistakes, too, had led him here.

    Summary

    “I travelled to the shrines for years, trying to learn more about Him — from Him.”
    “But you’re not…” Jessamine’s eyes strayed to the back of Daud's hand, ungloved. He raised it for her to see, smiling.
    “No, He did not mark me. I was not… interesting enough.”

    Summary

    What if the Kaldwins never took the throne, Corvo Attano never became Royal Protector, and Daud was never marked by the Outsider?
    And what if the author had a giant crush on Jane Austen?

    “Know your own happiness. You want nothing but patience—or give it a more fascinating name, call it hope.”

    Summary

    He was, objectively, a bastard, and a stubborn one at that. He’d refused any gratitude as he had the Empire’s coin, and the day Jessamine, Emily, and Corvo had moved back into the Tower, he’d been all but ready to leave the city. It was in her quarters, untouched since their escape, that she asked him to stay.

    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

    "You like him," she murmurs, the teasing of moments ago turning into gentle insistence as she molds herself to Corvo’s side, sliding a hand behind his head.

    "I don’t," Corvo protests, but it’s weak as he is distracted by her fingers playing with his hair.

    Summary

    “If I may be so bold—”

    “When has a lack of permission ever stopped you?” Corvo mutters, rolling his eyes; Daud snorts in obvious agreement. Were Anton not in dire shortage of people in court who didn’t fawn over him in transparent bids for his art or technology, and on the verge of having a bit of fun at their expense, he might take offense at that.

    “—both of them, Your Majesty?” Anton inquires as guilelessly as he can manage.

    Five people witness the developing relationship of the Empress, her Royal Protector, and her newly-appointed Spymaster.

    Summary

    She feels the Void flow through her veins, her heart of metal and wire, her throat, moving her tongue by its own accord. “Your hands do violence,” the Void whispers, though hers are the lips that speak, “but there is a different dream in your heart."

    It is 1837 when Jessamine Kaldwin falls not to an assassin's blade, but to the witch Delilah.

    On the day the Empress's throne is usurped by the half-sister she betrayed and denied when they were both children - on the day her daughter is claimed by the witch and her bodyguard imprisoned - the man who'd intended to kill her makes a choice not even the Outsider himself could have predicted.
