    Summary

    The ability to speak to ghosts sounded like a joke—at least it did, until it put a target on my back. Survival was at the top of the list and changing the future was laughable at best. Then I got attached, and the whole game changed. [SI/OC-Centric, AU. Slow build.]

    They are too afraid to call her anything else.

    Summary

    "Query: If I hold the heart of the woman who died in sorrow in my hands, and I place it to my ear to search for whispers like I search a seashell for the sound of the sea, what will that do to me?" Corvo's life has tilted upside-down, and he holds the Heart in his hands and holds on to things that he knows to be true and that do not change.

    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.
