    Summary

    Fifteen years ago, Corvo Attano held his daughter in his arms and told her Daud would never harm anyone again. He let her assume his meaning rather than tell her the shameful truth. Ten years ago, a great disruption in the Void sent ripples over the world and on Shindaerey Peak, something sleeping for four thousand years awoke. The Outsider chose to keep Corvo ignorant and out of danger. But our choices always matter to someone, somewhere. And sooner or later, in ways we can't always fathom, the consequences come back to us.

    Summary

    The Abbey of the Everyman warns against the many horrors of the Outsider. Corvo has never been particularly religious, never much thought of the Abbey. He wasn’t sure he even believed in the dark god the Abbey preached against. But there is no denying the existence of that god now, not when those black black eyes are looking down at him.

    Oh, my Adeline, ooh
    Down in Tasmania
    Where the devil's jaws are far too weak

    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.
