    Summary

    Fashav lives AU

    Before the events of Horizon: Forbidden West, Hekarro does not spare Regalla. Rebellion still exists in Tenakth clan lands while Hekarro seeks peace with the Carja, but they are led by Grudda and are not as organized. There is no attack on the Marshals at the Embassy. Fashav returns safely to Meridian, Kotallo has both arms, and Aloy continues west with Varl. People do not recognize her as Champion, only as "Outlander" or "the Nora". She is met with resistance and suspicion while battling inner demons and trying to complete her mission. Kotallo is cocky and distrustful of those who would question the tribe's traditions. Fashav struggles to be the bridge between the Carja and Tenakth. Everyone will have to find a way to put aside prejudices and past hurts to survive.

    Summary

    When Kotallo lost his arm, it was more than just a limb that he had lost. It was his prowess with a bow. It was his utility as a Marshal. His arm was gone, his life a ruin, and nothing would ever be the same.

    It did not occur to him that this could be a good thing.

    It did not occur to him that he could find new purpose in his life. It did not occur to him that an outlander with hair like blood and a spirit as fierce as blazefire would help him find that purpose.

    With Aloy as his witness, Kotallo would find himself again, and nothing would ever be the same.

    ********************
    In other words: a wish fulfillment fic where Aloy and Kotallo fall in love over the course of the game. Canon scenes and dialogue blended and padded out with introspection, cozy conversations, smut, and all the GAIA Gang bonding that we deserved. ❤

    Summary

    Another Elisabet lives AU through the events of Horizon Forbidden West and I add my humble cake to the buffet table. Excerpt:

    It was stupid, childish, to fear one woman's reaction to her existence. After all, Aloy had faced down men three times her size, deadly hunter-killers, and extinction-crazed AI's--what was meeting the woman she was based on compared to all that? But still, the fear of rejection was there. Setting aside her childish desires to avoid her own pain, Aloy was forced to recognize that she needed Elisabet. It was hard to admit, but Aloy was failing in her mission to restore GAIA. Elisabet might be the only person in the world that would know where to begin.

    In the end, it was this knowledge that leads Aloy to her decision. The world was more important than what Elisabet felt about a clone of herself.

    Summary

    The world began to end some fifteen years ago, with the introduction of an infection that altered human and animal behaviour alike, but humanity continued on in small sparks and embers across the globe - surviving, and fighting.

    Aloy Sobeck embarks on a cross-country mission in this post-apocalyptic world when her sister disappears suddenly without a trace, and bumps into a certain loud-mouth pair of siblings in her travels.

    Summary

    Various snippets of Aloy and Kotallo, our favorite power couple that has wriggled their way into our hearts and minds. There will be no context (but sometimes there might be). There will be no timeline (Zeniths exist, sometimes they don’t). There will be many feels. Comfortable silences. Random kisses. Invigorating hunts. Focus training. Some smut. Tricky situations. Traversing the Base. First machine rides. Maybe more …

    What is this? I don’t effing know. And maybe you won’t either. Each chapter will be a snippet. I’ll stop posting when I run out of ideas of them being … them.

    Tags and Ratings will be updated as I post.

    Summary

    He could not give her what she deserved, this mad outlander that had lit blaze in his heart as bright as her hair. She deserved kingdoms, tribes, miracles. But he would give her what he could; a shelter from the storm, a moment of peace.

    He would give her all that was left of himself, for as long as she would have him--even if only for a night.

    >>--->

    New Game+ has me filled with a mighty need to flesh out the Embassy and entirely change up the Bulwark. Embark with me on this canon-divergent dive into a world where Kotallo and Aloy interact much more and let's see where it takes us.
