Close Your Eyes You've Been Here Before By: Taywen

  • Recommended by: Chaos_Greymistchild
  • Status: Complete
  • 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 What If? Corvus was stuck in a "Groundhog Day" Loop. Some Corvus/Jessamine if you tilt your head, squint, and subscribe to the popular theory that Emily is Crovus and Jessamine's daughter.

Honor for All

  • Recommended by: cricri3007
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A small series of drabbles based on the question "What if The Loyalists didn't go power-mad?" There is a paragraph for almost every character and they are quite well-written and fun to read.

Heard It Through The Heart Line By: EeveebethFejvu

  • Recommended by: nmn3r3, Red-Dead-Redeemer
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The Heart reveals many secrets about the world and the people around Corvo. Sometimes too many secrets. If Corvo didn’t 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/Jessamine's habit of giving Corvo Too Much Information. Then again, that is the point of the fic.

Nature of Man By: Smaragdina

  • Recommended by Madame_Newbie
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis:Corvo fails to escape from Coldrige and is executed. Emily Kaldwin must learn that the only person who can rescue her is herself.
  • Comments: As the synopsis implies, this fic is very depressing if you love Emily. Good thing she wins in the end.

Two Steps to the Left By: Etothefifth

  • Recommended by Madame_Newbie
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: The Outsider grants Corvo his Mark two days earlier than expected. Corvo must now use his newfound powers to restore Emily on the throne but everything has changed.
  • 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.

Transfusion By: darknessfactor

  • Recommended by nmn3r3
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The world takes up so much of her that it’s hard to make room for emotion. Or maybe it’s hard to feel anything other than regret - regret that this couldn’t have been prevented, or regret that she can’t 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.

Diplomatic Gestures By: Aicosu
  • Recommended by Avenger 09
  • Status: Dormant
  • Pairing: Corvo/Jessamine
  • Synopsis: She didn't have need for an assassin, but she couldn't very well reject the gift without angering the Serkonos regency. They were a traditional people with a traditional mind. She'd have to work around it. (A take on how a mute Corvo Attano came to be the Royal Protector and the object of Jessamine's heart.)

Scenes from a Marriage By: Serindrana

  • Recommended by Madame_Newbie
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Callista/Treavor
  • Synopsis: AU where Callista is an accidental heiress and the twins Pendleton offer up their little brother to the Curnow family line. (Callista/Treavor)
  • Comments: This story is basically about the arranged marriage between Callista and Treavor Pendleton, it showcases their growing bond with one another. A Callista/Treavor pairing.

Thick as Thieves By: Serindrana

  • Recommended by Madame_Newbie
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Callista/Teague
  • Synopsis: An AU where Captain Curnow murders the High Overseer Campbell and how it affects the only family member he left behind, Callista. Bereft of her Uncle's protection she must seek out an alliance with the cunning Teague Martin for survival.
  • Comments: Contains BDSM elements but it's done tastefully. This story is bittersweet and Serindrana has managed to capture everyone's characterisation perfectly. A Callista/Teague pairing.

Dust After Rain By: Serindrana

  • Recommended by Madame_Newbie
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Callista/Daud
  • Synopsis: A modern AU. Callista Curnow has been kidnapped by the former assassin Daud for the purpose to tutor the kidnapped Emily Kaldwin.
  • Comments: Slow-burn Callista/Daud with a very small Corvo/Geoff.

The Hound Pits Coffee Shop and Cocktail Parlour by NeverwinterThistle

  • 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.

DisTowered by ichypa

  • Recommended by Zeus Xenios
  • Status: Dormant
  • 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.
  • Comments: A very interesting cast of characters and an original take on the tests of the Second Floor.

  • Recommended by Leid
  • Crossovers with: Worm
  • Status: Dormant; last updated January 2018
  • Synopsis: When Taylor went into the locker, she drew the attention of two beings. One offered an absent thought, and a broken tool that wasn't even meant for her. The other took a more personal approach.
