    Summary

    Several years pass following the Battle of the Spire. Aloy, recovers from her wounds and returns to the Sacred Lands to aid the Nora in rebuilding from the destruction of the Eclipse and the death bringers. The huntress travels in her spare time, learning about the other clans and their varying ways of life. In time, Aloy decides to return to Meridian and see her old friends. Avad has not forgotten her, and neither has she him. As they spend more time together, they grow closer, forming a bond that cannot easily be broken. Numerous challenges face them: war, politics, personal endeavors. Can the Nora seeker and the Carja Sun-King endure the tests brought before them? Can a king love a savage? Will Aloy and Avad change the course of history or is it an immovable force? When the sun sets, the moon rises.

    This story will stick mostly to cannon with slight deviations.

    And, yes, you read right.

    Aloy and Nil
    Aloy and Erend
    Aloy and Avad

    Bast isn't certain why he left or why he's back, but he does know this: there is a Scourge on Earth as was on Eos, and he won't let it take his family. Not this time.

    Summary

    [SPOILERS FOR THE END OF THE GAME]
    [POSSIBLE REFERENCES TO THE FROZEN WILDS DLC FROM CHAPTER 26 AND ONWARD]

    -

    The woman is standing near the console, the same height as Aloy. Same color red hair, but shorter. Her face is different in that it looks older, with more pronounced smile lines. She looks tired. Worn. It's Elisabet in a way Aloy has never seen her before, without the holo's filter of blue light layered over her image. Real and tangible.

    -

    Aloy helps restore GAIA. In return, GAIA decides to bring back Elisabet, and that's where things get messy.

    Summary

    As a young demigod, a daughter of Gaia, Aloy is at risk from the people who would manipulate her towards their own ends, the gods who view her as a dangerous nuisance, and the monsters who want to kill her. However after eighteen years of being exiled in the Nora lands, Aloy is hungry to explore – even if it is against her mother’s wish to keep her far away from the Carja lands of conflict.

    But when Rost disappears, Aloy is forced beyond the Nora valleys for the first time. Thrust into a whirlwind of politics in the Carja capital while dealing with enraged and corrupted monsters throughout the lands means that she has little time to try to develop a relationship with either her human or godly parent. With the earthly realm in increasing turmoil, Aloy must solve the question of why the gods are imbalanced and the riddle of her birth, before chaos overtakes both the heavens and the earth – for there are forces stirring that are beyond the scope of even the gods' ability to put down, and for some reason Aloy is at the centre of it all...

    Summary

    Canon-divergent and set about a year after the events of Horizon: Zero Dawn.

    ------

    Despite a year of working and living side by side, Aloy had always kept some small distance from Elisabet. Something quiet, hidden. Something almost imperceptible. Elisabet had her suspicions, but kept them to herself. What good would it do to brute force things?

    But Elisabet had never been one to let a problem go unsolved.
