''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/4662093/chapters/10636869 Eyes Turned Skyward]]'' by ''[[https://archiveofourown.org/users/puppyblue/pseuds/puppyblue Puppyblue]]''
* Recommended by: Depths/Leviathiane
* Status: Ongoing
* Pairing: Corvo/Daud
* Synopsis: AU! Granny Rags gets revenge on Corvo after he refuses to help her but transforming him into a crow. Unable to speak, and forced to relearn his own powers within a new body, there is little he is able to do when he is found and taken in by Daud... who just thinks he's a weird crow.
* Comments: Has nearly 200K words and a good knowledge about how crows actually move and grow, and this shows in the realistic ways the author describes Corvo having to learn to fly and move in his different form. It's a long slow-burn. A brilliant way to have both Corvo and Daud get to know each other while still being fully in character, and reveals more to Daud's whalers than we get in original first-game canon.

''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/15187094 The Red Queen]]'' By: [[https://archiveofourown.org/users/Faiakishi/pseuds/Faiakishi Faiakishi]]
* Recommended by madame_newbie
* Status: In-Progress
* Synopsis: Through a series of strange and improbable events, Billie Lurk is Empress. Daud is her Royal Protector and mentor-until she receives a blade through the gut and Daud is framed for her murder. Six months later, Daud finds himself bearing the Outsider's Mark, and he burns with a new purpose: to save the Empress's brother, Thomas, and restore him to the throne. Featuring Corvo and Jessamine as badass avian-themed assassins, Lizzy Stride as the sassiest Samuel ever, and the weirdest (and most inefficient) conspiracy to ever grace the Isles.
* Comments: One of the best role swap AU fic featuring a grief PTSD Daud seeking vengeance for his dead Empress.

* Recommended by nmn3r3
* Status: Complete
* Synopsis: The world takes up so much of her that itís hard to make room for emotion. Or maybe itís hard to feel anything other than regret - regret that this couldnít have been prevented, or regret that she canít do anything more to save anyone. She cannot remember how she died, but she remembers who killed her. She cannot remember her name, but she can remember the name of her daughter.
* Comments: The deceased Empress Jessamine becomes the Avatar of the Void after the unexplained disappearance of the Outsider.

* Synopsis: You wake up on a ship with bad news burning a hole in your left breast pocket (over your steadily beating heart) and a damning brand burned into the back of your left hand. You're home. / Timeloop AU.
* Comments: A very well-written, very chilling take on WhatIf Corvus was stuck in a GroundhogDayLoop. Some Corvus/Jessamine if you tilt your head, squint, and subscribe to the popular theory that Emily is Crovus and Jessamine's daughter.

* Recommended by: Lexxi
* Status: Complete
* Pairing: The Outsider/Corvo
* Synopsis: Corvo Attano is a struggling actor working full time at the Hound Pits Coffee Shop and Cocktail Parlour to make ends meet. A wide range of colourful personages wander through his life, apparently for the sole purpose of making him more miserable, and that's even before the Outsider shows up. Fifteen minutes late, and seeking coffee.
* Comments: A brilliant modern day-retelling of the game's plot.

* ''Synopsis'': The Heart reveals many secrets about the world and the people around Corvo. Sometimes too many secrets. If Corvo didnít know any better, he might even say the Heart is a bit of a gossip.
* ''Comments'': Warning for vulgar and sexual humor, given the Heart's/[[spoiler:Jessamine's]] habit of giving Corvo TooMuchInformation. Then again, that ''is'' the point of the fic.

* ''Comments'': An AU novelisation on Corvo's adventures in Dunwall. Well-written and does an excellent job at exploring the changes that had happened since Corvo was marked. Timelines and the people he met are scrambled thus it avoids being too similar to the original game.

* ''Synopsis'': Crossover fiction between Tower of God and Dishonored. Corvo Attano, after bringing ruination to everything he loves, seeks a way to make things right. The Outsider shows him a way. To reclaim all that he has lost, Corvo must prepare to climb the Tower. Rated M for violence. Focuses mostly on a group of interesting original characters. Time in which events transpire is speculated to be after the end of the first Season.
