    Summary

    “With the empress safe and the empire rebuilding you’ve hardly had time for the adventures I know you for. Simple tasks and errands are all that occupy your time, little missions here and there. You’ve done nothing exciting, and yet you still excite me, hold my interest. I want to know what it is that’s exciting me. It’s been months since you’ve visited a shrine, you have not come to me, and so I have come to you. From the void I pulled together this body of real flesh and bone, borrowed from the whales still roaming.”

    The Outsider remains fascinated by Corvo, though he's been doing nothing to earn his interest. The Outsider wants to know what makes Corvo so special to him, so he builds himself a body and visits his dearest marked. Corvo, used to avoiding his own odd fascination with the god with distance between them, has a very interesting time.

    Edit: I've rewritten a good chunk of chapter 1! it doesn't change the plot much, but it does change the characters

    Summary

    The Empress pushed at him with a desperate strength, yelling at him to get away from her daughter. Daud drove the woman back with a slap that left her stumbling.
    Got a hand around her throat, grip tight, forcing her back step by step. Against the gazebo’s rail. He had ther pinned, poised to shove his sword between her ribs.

    One cut. One more precise, efficient, brutal motion to be done with this.

    It was then, a fraction of a second before intent turned to bloody reality, that a thought flashed inside his head, clear and cold as the Void itself.

    This is a mistake.

    ---

    In which I try my hand at a Slow Burn Royal-OT3 fic and it's already shaping up to be a goddam novel. You're all welcome! Hope you enjoy it! :D

    Summary

    “Boss.” From just behind him, Rulfio tapped Daud’s shoulder. Daud looked up and found Keiron, one of the servers, standing across the kitchen, biting their lip. Everyone, down to the valet, called him ‘boss.’ He ran the place, in all but name.

    “What is it?” Daud asked, then dropped his gaze to find a familiar plate in Kieron’s hands.

    “It’s table 13 again,” Kieron said, grimacing when Daud’s brow furrowed in a scowl. “The gentleman said it’s not… finely carved enough for a man of your skills. He told me to tell you that,” Kieron hastened to add.

    Summary

    "Jessamine abandoned her hostess facade. Daud realised his error, but it was too late to take back his words.

    The rest happened quickly. She gestured a command. Without hesitation, her bodyguard flew into action, firing his crossbow at Daud’s head. At the first sign of movement, Daud let experience take over. Suddenly he moved alone in a still scene. He’d called upon the Outsider’s mark to stop time, barely.

    Cursing, he plucked the crossbow bolt that time held airborne. It was a finger's span from its final destination in his neck."

    A retelling of Dishonored. Daud never takes the contract on Jessamine and offers to work for her, much to Corvo and Billie's dismay.

    - Character-centric action/adventure
    - Corvo & Emily fluff
    - A proper character arc for Billie
    - Wholesome Daud & Billie moments
    - Jess & Corvo have a Morticia & Gomez vibe
    - Dog dog dog
    - bisexual!High Chaos Corvo with demisexual!Low Chaos Daud
    - bisexual!Jessamine is a competent disaster but Corvo & Callista love her very much

    Summary

    Jessamine shifts slightly in her throne, trying to concentrate on the droning voice of the Minister of Trade, trying to remember that her father is watching her carefully from across the room; trying, in fact, to focus on anything other than the steady warmth of Corvo at her shoulder. She is not succeeding.

    Summary

    Джессамина I Колдуин — горячо любимая императрица Островной Империи и королева Гристоля, погибшая такой глупой, наивной смертью. Предательство собственного же лорда-протектора — кто бы мог подумать! И вот мы лишились нашей главной опоры и поддержки, лишились женщины мудрой и сильной, делающей все для своего народа и даже живущей, кажется, только для своего народа. И вот она уж полгода, как покоится в сырой земле...
    Но что, если нет?

    Summary

    History tends to repeat itself and Outsider is enjoying it WAY too much as more the things are same, the more they change.
    This will be likely first part of series from this cursed loops where events tend to repeat and yet not. Just the place in time continuum changes.
    Have fun.

    Summary

    When Daud stumbles upon the Royal Protector perched upon a rooftop, each comes to the conclusion that the other could be useful. For Daud in collecting information relevant for the looming contract calling for the assassination of Empress Jessamine Kaldwin; for Corvo in rooting out the seediest of threats to the Crown from the seediest of Dunwall's underbelly.

    Neither expects, however, that the other will drastically shift them from their predetermined course, tying them together irreparably.

    Summary

    Washed down the river after an attempt on her life, Jessamine Kaldwin learns to carve runes into a whalebone sword.


    One of the initial concepts for Transistor involved a fantasy tavern lady who wields a rune sword possessed by her murdered lover. Well, you know what else has runes and revenge and ruined cities and fancy swords and disembodied lovers and tragic romance?

    This is a Transistor-inspired Dishonored AU one-shot where Jessamine lives, but dear Corvo does not. It is very much set in the world of Dishonored, and the only crossover element is the bones (hehe) of the Transistor premise above. There are maybe two Transistor references sprinkled in, but I hope they blend well with the overall story.

    Summary

    The assassin's head was struck from his shoulders with a meaty crack. It fell in a perfect arc as the body slumped sideways and fell, spraying blood down the front of Jessamine's blouse.

    The stranger looked like him. That was Corvo's face looking back at him, a little younger perhaps, his skin darker, his hair shorter...

    He'd appeared out of nowhere, popping into existence much like their attackers had. He hadn't wasted his time with a stab or slice at the assassin's back; he'd just cut his head clean off, staggering with the force of his own blow, blood slicking his sword.

    --

    In which Corvo Attano, captain of the Grand Serkonan Guard and interdimensional traveler extraordinaire, has had enough of this bullshit.

    Summary

    Summary

    “I’m surprised you're still alive,” Jessamine murmured, still regarding Billie casually.

    Billie attempted a laugh, the sound coming out as more of a wheeze because she couldn’t help herself. “You’re not really one to talk, Empress. You should be dead. I should know, I was there — as you probably already figured out.”
