    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

    The Abbey of the Everyman warns against the many horrors of the Outsider. Corvo has never been particularly religious, never much thought of the Abbey. He wasn’t sure he even believed in the dark god the Abbey preached against. But there is no denying the existence of that god now, not when those black black eyes are looking down at him.

    Summary

    It’s been almost twenty minutes since the shift change. They’re comfortable now, less alert, less cautious than perhaps they should be.

    Seven thousand, nine hundred.

    The cell is barred, the door simply locked . How unwise, now that he thinks of it, from this side of the bars. Acquiring lock-picks or something close enough is not impossible, merely nearly so. Something he’ll need to change, when he can, once…

    Once everything is dealt with.

    Summary

    “Daud, my old friend. It’s been a long while, but you’ve got my interest again. Did you know there are only seven like you in the world, bearing my Mark? There was to be an eighth, but he breathed his last before I could grant him my boon, staring into the lifeless eyes of the only woman he ever loved.

    “I’m here to give you your last gifts, Daud. The first is a mystery. One that starts with a name: Delilah. The second is this: the Heart of a living thing, moulded by my hands.”

    Corvo Attano dies alongside his Empress. Now there is no one left to clean up the mess Daud left behind - except, perhaps, for Daud himself.

    Summary

    It is the general opinion that if you are half-marked, then clearly, you must have done something heinous to be deserving of such a curse. Before this point, Daud hadn’t really believed that.

    Summary

    The Outsider forgets how to breathe sometimes.
    It’s not important; it’s not necessary. But sometimes, in the middle of the vast Void, the Outsider clutches at his throat — where is his esophagus, his trachea, his pharynx — and finds nothing. No air, no flesh, no material there to breathe. He chokes on the realization, but he doesn’t know if he can even choke if he can’t breathe. The lifespan of a god is doomed to be eternal, and eternity is such a wide space for forgetting such things. Such unnecessary things. But they were once necessary to the Outsider in the days when he was mortal and was ignorant to such concepts like divinity and immortality. The ever-present whalesong in the distance now sounds mocking, and the Outsider clenches his fists into semblances of shadow.
    The Outsider forgets sometimes.

    // a character study on the outsider and how he forgets (and remembers) to be physically mortal

    Summary

    Sporadic Updates)
    It's been a weird few months. Boundaries are still being tested, Roman is still picking himself up, and the relationship is slowly, but surely, growing.
    But there's something deep in the mindscape that Virgil's been ignoring. Something he should have dealt with a while ago. And Patton is more than happy to pretend it doesn't exist at all.
    Until it finally gets free.

    Summary

    Mutual respect runs deep for the two men, one who lost himself to bloodlust, and one who left his name behind for none, finding an existence as a tool once again. Together they paint Dunwall red, ridding the wretched city of whatever can oppose them. As well what opposes the Empress.

    Summary

    They say an Empress should be prepared for anything, but Emily’s not sure her lessons were ever meant to prepare her for this. She’s been at the Golden Cat for six months, and it’s clear now that she’ll have to rescue herself – perhaps that will be made easier by the gifts the black-eyed man passes to her in the Void.

    But, as with all things involving the Void and magic, there is a price to be paid.
    In which Delilah’s ritual backfires and sends Corvo back to his time in Coldridge Prison, but this time as a void abomination and without any memories of the alternate future. And in this timeline, things have changed.
