    Summary

    This wasn't how it was supposed to end. Everyone they have ever loved is dead, or dying, or wished they were dead. The kingdom is in ruins, the survivors barely holding on. If they could fix it, they would. If only they had more time.
    And time was theirs to command.

    OR

    Ghost ascends to godhood, decides to travel back in time and fix things, and saves those they couldn't before. They deserve a family, and nobody deserves to die (except soul master. fuck him.)

    Summary

    To vanquish a plague of dreams, one requires a vessel born of void- a body without a mind, scoured of all the weaknesses and sins that cripple the living. The Old Light must not escape and for this, one requires a vessel with no mind to think, no will to break, no voice to cry suffering.

    Of these damnable traits, the Hollow Knight is free of only one. After living a life of deception, knighted with a title emptier than it could ever be, all it can do now is hold tight to its duty and weather a war it was never supposed to be conscious for.

    One impurity is all that it takes.

    The Pure Vessel makes a grievous error.

    The Radiance falls.

    Summary

    The cost had been too great. When he had sealed that door, he knew the toll it would take on his mind, body, and soul. And he deserved it. He had committed genocide against his own children, and forced a most horrible fate upon his “favored” one. He knew that his failure was absolute, and that he deserved nothing but an execution for his terrible misdeeds...But when a second chance is forced upon him?

    He knows he does not deserve it, and doubts that he won’t squander it. But alas, he dares to dream...

Hat Kid meets familiar faces from Hollow Knight who help and/or hinder her in her quest to find timepieces.

    Summary

    Quirrel has amnesia. He can't remember anything beyond a certain point, and even from there to here, everything is fuzzy. Nevertheless, he keeps feeling like everything in the abandoned kingdom of Hallownest is too familiar, and that feeling follows him everywhere.

    There's only one thing that doesn't give him that feeling: One odd little vessel, who will lead him through the darkness as he uncovers what he's forgotten about his past. This ghost who haunts this abandoned kingdom has a lot to hide. A lot to protect.

    And what's worse is that Quirrel is about to fall in love with them.

    He doesn't want to say goodbye ever again.

    Summary

    “Once there was light! I cannot remember it!” the Seer babbled. The Radiance waved from behind. “I do not know what the light was! I have forgotten the light! If only I could remember the light! What is the light? I do not know! I once did! But now I do not know a light! If only I knew-”

    “I’m over here,” said the Radiance.

    “-what the light was! I wonder what is a light! I once basked in a light! Where is the light! Who is the light! When was the light?” The Radiance facepalmed.

    “B,” said the Nightmare King as he floated down the hall carrying a bunch of stupid guitars and a stinky piano. The Seer gasped.

    “WHAT IS LIGHT? WHO IS WHEN? LIGHT!!” shrieked the Seer, “ARE YOU A LIGHT?” The Nightmare King looked confused, then dropped the guitars on her head, picked them up, and walked away. The Seer gasped again.

    “IT IS LIGHT!” she screeched as she picked up a piece of Nightmare Essence and shaped it into a foot. The Radiance rolled her eyes before floating away.

    Summary

    The Pale Kings alternative way of getting rid of the Radiance fortunately works, but unfortunately (for him at least) it also brings a new God to the kingdom. As Ghost, the God of the void, tries to work out their life after ages worth of imprisonment, old trauma and new problems rear their ugly heads. Thank the heavens that Quirrel also lives in Hollownest.

    Summary

    Her brilliant plan was as follows:

    1. Hide right up against the wall next to the door out of the Abyss so the Pale Bellend didn’t see her immediately.

    2. When he walked through the door, waste no time in hitting him in the back of the head, or the back of whatever she could reach with her club to stun him and give her more time to enact step 3.

    3. Run like hell, and pray that getting unexpectedly whacked in the back of the head stunned him long enough for her to make a clean getaway, since he would presumably be coming down here alone.

    4. Make good use of her intangibility to escape and haul ass to the Resting Grounds as fast as possible, putting all her ninja skills to good use in avoiding detection from basically everyone, since she could trust basically no one to not rat her out if the king put a bounty on her head or some shit like that.

    She operated under the KISS method of planning. It was an acronym that stood for ‘Keep It Simple, Stupid.’

    But then again, no plan survived contact with the enemy.

    This was going to suck, wasn't it?

    Summary

    The Pale King wakes up near the Abyss with no memory of how he got there.

    Little does he know that his day is going to get worse.

    It is definitely not how he expected his day to go.
