The Winner Takes it All, The Loser Has to Fall

Chapter Text


It’s nice to meet you! My name is Rain, and I am the author of this story. This is my first story on AO3, so any constructive criticism is welcome~

Some info about me: 

My name is Rain, and I go by she/them pronouns! I main Aloy and Xinyan in Genshin, and I want to try Horizon Zero Dawn when I can afford it (A Playstation is expensive, okay?). 


And now, some important things to know. 

  • I don’t have an update schedule, I update when I am satisfied with the chapter. 
  • This story is inspired by Brooklyn Nine-Nine, a few Genshin Idol AU fanfics on AO3, a few random books I read, Komi Can’t Communicate and some IRL experiences (IRL experiences for comedy, mainly.)
  • There are going to be a few sensitive topics in the story, so I will put trigger warnings. Also, please check the tags! However, there will be no character death. This story is not suitable for children or those who are easily disturbed. 
  • Aloy’s character might be OOC, as I have not played HDZ before, and only know her from Genshin (Primarily her Character Stories and Voice-lines). There might be a few things that may be inaccurate, so I deeply apologise. 
  • This is my first time posting on AO3, so there might be some issues like misplaced chapters. Please bear with me!


And finally, please enjoy the story!

Unfortunately, I'm putting the story on hiatus as I'm burnt out from writing it. I'll be back in January or something. Thanks for reading!

This is not an April Fools joke, but I WAS A DUM DUM AND FORGOT TO LINK THE SEQUEL!
