    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

    After Billie Lurk frees the Outsider from the void, he struggles to make sense of an entirely new existence. His Marked have lost their powers, and the Overseer's collection of bone charms have crumbled to dust, and heretics across Dunwall mourn the loss of their God.

    The night the Outsider becomes human, Corvo Attano dreams that he is drowning. Then, his mark begins to change and his hands grow as cold as the depths of the ocean. The Outsider is free now, but the Void is reaching for a new representative.

    Or: In which the Outsider learns how to be human and the Lord Protecter is forced into godhood against his will.

    It takes more than learning to see through different eyes. Feel across new flesh. He has to decide who he is, first. What he wants, second.
