    Summary

    In the end, Corvo has no one to blame but himself. He, after all, had been the first to spare Daud after besting the assassin in a duel. He, after all, had been anxious to explain his motives for doing so - at length - to Emily, when she had, one sunny afternoon in the Tower pavilion where her mother had met her violent death, asked what had happened to her mother's murderer.

    Now her letter of pardon seems to burn in his coat pocket on the right, opposite the Heart that he yet holds in his left coat pocket, and it feels like betrayal and not betrayal as he watches the sea pass him by, on his way to Serkonos on a fast ship, with Daud's apparent successor-via-default by his side. Life is infinitely ironic.

    Summary

    "Why have not we an immortal soul?" asked the little mermaid mournfully. "I would give gladly all the hundreds of years that I have to live, to be a human being only for one day." 

    "You must not think of that," said the witch, "unless a man were to love you. And if all his thoughts and all his love were fixed upon you, and he promised to be true to you here and hereafter-- then his soul would glide into your body and you would obtain a share in the future happiness of mankind. He would give a soul to you, and retain his own as well.

    But this can never happen."

    - Hans Christian Andersen

    ---

    Yet another one of those human!Outsider fics, inspired by the original tale of The Little Mermaid.

    Summary

    Somehow Harry ends up agreeing to a fake relationship with his ex-nemesis-turned-friendly-acquaintance-with-benefits, except for some reason it involves an awful lot of actual dating and, sadly, not much sex. Confused? Harry is too, but when has anything with Draco Malfoy ever been as straightforward as it seems?
