    Summary

    “A gift for you,” Said the Outsider, watching coldly. His head tilted. “And for Corvo - the Bond has been returned to you.” He stayed quiet a moment, watching as Daud worked out the last of the aches in his Marked hand. “Duke Luca Abele has made Serkonos worse and worse for the silver blood in its veins, bleeding it dry to feed himself. The bloodflies in its forgotten slums are hungry; you might pull your homeland back from the edge, or you might doom it.” He turned his back to Daud, watching the whale drifting languidly through the islands and spires of stone. “I’ll be watching to see which you choose.”

     

    The Outsider had warned there were more threats to an empress than just the nobles around the throne. At least Corvo won't face Delilah alone.

    Summary

    He was going to kill Piero.

    The lens in his mask whirled and hissed, leaving him blind in one eye and with focused vision in the other as he balanced high above the hallway. Frantic twisting and tapping did nothing, leaving him pulling the mask off with a soft curse under his breath.

    And it wasn't as if he could walk around with his bared face as the most wanted man in the Empire.

    Hopefully the Whaling outfit folded carefully in the storage box came in his size.

    Summary

    “Thank you, Corvo. For not treating me like a little kid.” Jessamine told him.
    “Not sure how anyone could mistake you for a little kid.” Corvo chuckled. She was so clearly wise beyond her years; already saddled with the weight of the world on her shoulders.

    A short series of scenes set throughout Jessamine's adolescence as she forms an unbreakable bond with her protector.

    Summary

    Garrett knows without a doubt that he should be wary of the sorts of bonds he makes with other people, especially when a certain tall, dark, and handsome police officer works his way into his life. Despite that, he carries on, playing the niceties needed to not arouse suspicion while still carrying out his job as the best Thief in the City. But quick hands and cloaks of shadow aren't enough when conflict comes to his peaceful little life and the man who holds his heart in handcuffs comes to his door, threatening to tear it all down.

    (Simply put, Garrett is crushing on Officer Corvo Attano while also trying to navigate his tricky lifestyle around their maybe relationship on top of remembering what happened to him the night he went missing and wound up hospitalized with a strange wound and a newly discolored eye.)

    Summary

    As Corvo settled down in his office, the clouds outside opened as if the skies were trying to drown the city in the Wren, as though Dunwall hadn’t been trying hard enough to drown itself in mud. He was meant to go through the day’s Watch and field reports, to find weaknesses in the Tower’s security and to decide which recruits to keep. As de facto Spymaster, although no official appointment had yet been made, it had fallen to him to cull the numbers of those who would be convicted of treason — and would have to be replaced. The hard part was learning to trust. And to choose.

    He had only just sorted out his desk when the Heart started beating faster against his chest. He removed her from his vest, still amazed at how he could carry it in a shirt and, somehow, no-one but those touched by the Void could see. And he was the only one, now.

    “What is it?” he asked, softly stroking the leathery skin of her vessel with his thumb. “Jess?”

    He’s here. Corvo. Why is he here?

    Summary

    AKA What if Corvo Attano was not the man you think he is? A story of betrayal, a man’s hidden past, and the Outsider’s playbook.

    By afternoon, he was tired of incompetent Watch officers (with the exception of Curnow, but truly he was the only one, it seemed), and exponentially more bloodthirsty nobles: their brutality was founded not in knowing how to slit a man’s throat and the wet rattle that followed, but in knowing they could send someone else to do it for them without their own hands ever being stained with blood. Still they talked of murder as though it was employment, as if they knew the first thing about it. Almost Corvo was glad that he had left that side of the business to someone else the past twenty years. Absently, he touched the scar on his cheek, not entirely hidden by the beard: that burn from the Royal Executioner’s iron. They all saw it, that quarter inch of burnt skin, and they all knew where it was from. The only consolation was that Burrows would never know the irony of trying to torture Corvo for a false confession.

    Summary

    This is a series of One-Shots that are deleted scenes, alternate scenarios and filler situations I wanted to put into my main fic Hydrophobia but didn't work in the end. This also contains a few humorous pieces and guilty pleasure works that I wanted to indulge myself in writing. If you enjoyed Hydrophobia and want to see what didn't make the cut, then come check this out!

    Summary

    "The thing about Attano was, he responded to violence easily. Not happily, but easily. He responded to passion, too. Just as easily, when it was framed as violence."

    Daud, Corvo, and the remains of Jessamine Kaldwin gingerly negotiate a relationship in the aftermath of the Interregnum.

    Summary

    The bodyguard’s early return ruined the plan, in more ways than one. For Burrows, it was one more thing woefully and insolently slipping past his tenuous need for control — for Daud, it was yet another complication to what was already an utter nightmare. Attano wasn’t supposed to be there. He was supposed to arrive two days later, when the Whalers could pick up him before he ever reached the Tower. They’d need to, if there was to be any getting to him. Burrows wanted to be waiting for him, with the dreadful news, to use him for his own ends after the Empress’ death. The aspiring Lord Regent was not to know that the assassin he’d paid to do his dirty work had… other ideas. Such as not murdering an Empress at all.

    Summary

    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?
