    Summary

    Corvo should kill him. What did honor matter to a man who’d killed a completely defenseless woman in front of her child?
    Daud would never expect it. Make it a clean death, quick and simple.
    No, he deserved to suffer. Better to slide Daud’s own blade right under his ribs, right where he’d gutted Jessamine, and watch him retch his last few breaths on the rotting floor.
    Just like her.

    Summary

    - “My mother warned me never to make an enemy of a witch.” An AU where Corvo is a witch (optionally marked by the Outsider) and Daud attempts to stay on his good side. -
    Daud has no information on Delilah to begin with. But following rumours, nothing like a Witch to help figuring out the whereabouts and plans of another. If only it wasn't so difficult to win Corvo's favour.

    Summary

    Dunwall is in ruins.

    A rat plague has brought the city to its knees, and Lord Regent Hiram Burrows has done nothing to fix things. The Empress is dead, her heir missing, presumed dead. Her bodyguard, chained up and locked in Coldridge Prison, accused of driving his sword through her chest.

    But Lady Elizabeth Bushford knows the truth. She knows what the Lord Regent has done--knows that it was he who organised Jessamine's assassination--and she will stop at nothing to avenge her fallen friend. Even if it meant she'll have to call upon Jessamine's killer for help, the Knife of Dunwall himself.

    Nobles don't seem to last very long around Dunwall.

    Especially not when the Lord Regent wants your head.

    (This story is sixteen years before the contents of As Above.)

    Summary

    It had been years since the black-eyed bastard had spoken to him at one of the shrines, rarely as Daud sought them out anymore, and even longer since he’d appeared to him in his dreams. So when he fell asleep only to open his eyes to the upside-down, torn-apart world of the Void, Daud could do little more than heave an annoyed sigh.
     
    Daud doesn't kill the Empress. But he may as well have, for all the good it does him.

    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.

    Summary

    A year has past since Daud promised never to return to the empire, but he didn't get very far. He lives on Caltan, Tyvia, relishing his new life as the strong man of a local apothecary owner and black market dealer. His identity a secret, he lives fearing for the day it all falls to pieces, again, but until then, he has some work to do. In this first part of many (hopefully), we meet Daud once again, and his new friend, an OC named Ida Wilder.
