    Summary

    As a young demigod, a daughter of Gaia, Aloy is at risk from the people who would manipulate her towards their own ends, the gods who view her as a dangerous nuisance, and the monsters who want to kill her. However after eighteen years of being exiled in the Nora lands, Aloy is hungry to explore – even if it is against her mother’s wish to keep her far away from the Carja lands of conflict.

    But when Rost disappears, Aloy is forced beyond the Nora valleys for the first time. Thrust into a whirlwind of politics in the Carja capital while dealing with enraged and corrupted monsters throughout the lands means that she has little time to try to develop a relationship with either her human or godly parent. With the earthly realm in increasing turmoil, Aloy must solve the question of why the gods are imbalanced and the riddle of her birth, before chaos overtakes both the heavens and the earth – for there are forces stirring that are beyond the scope of even the gods' ability to put down, and for some reason Aloy is at the centre of it all...

    Summary

    Samina Ebadji and Margo Shĕn did not die with the others. In the immediate aftermath of Faro's mass murder, GAIA acted. Now, a thousand years later, they wake from cryo-stasis to a very different world.

     

    It has been a couple years since the battle of Meridian and the Spire. In that time, Aloy tracked down Sylens, and properly overrode HADES, wiping clean his protocol, rendering him useless as a destroyer of life, but not killing him.

    Aloy has set about discovering new territories that weren't mission critical. Her travels took her north to Ban-Ur where she met many new people. And CYAN. But perhaps most importantly, she got to know a young huntress so very much like her: Ikrie.

    Also, Ersa survived her torture under Dervahl, and it hasn't been an easy road since then for her. But she's improving.

    Summary

    A series of connected vignettes~
    ------

    Sometimes fate provides you with a second chance. When it does, you take it. Aloy saw the chest pad of the surprisingly well preserved environmental suit reading "cryo-stasis," and froze. Could Elisabet Sobeck, the woman she'd searched for all this time, still be alive?

    She wasn't about to waste the opportunity.

    Summary

    [SPOILERS FOR THE END OF THE GAME]
    [POSSIBLE REFERENCES TO THE FROZEN WILDS DLC FROM CHAPTER 26 AND ONWARD]

    -

    The woman is standing near the console, the same height as Aloy. Same color red hair, but shorter. Her face is different in that it looks older, with more pronounced smile lines. She looks tired. Worn. It's Elisabet in a way Aloy has never seen her before, without the holo's filter of blue light layered over her image. Real and tangible.

    -

    Aloy helps restore GAIA. In return, GAIA decides to bring back Elisabet, and that's where things get messy.

    Summary

    It's been two years since the battle for the Spire, and with GAIA's help Aloy is on the verge of bringing the Zero Dawn network back online, giving GAIA control over the terraforming system again.

    Once accomplished, Aloy would finally be free to leave the ruins she's been stuck living in. The first destination to come to mind? Meridian.

    ----

    Not much has changed for Erend in the two years since Aloy left him behind and never looked back. He's still Captain of the Vanguard. He's still drinking. He's still miserable and alone. He figures there isn't much of anything that could change that.

    He couldn't be more wrong.

    Summary

    After the Battle of Meridian, Aloy feels her next task is to rebuild GAIA and fix the Derangement. Finding Elizabet Sobeck was not supposed to be something in the realm of possibilities, but if Aloy is good at anything its rolling with the punches.

    Summary

    “Thou hast shown me wonders: thou hast shown me those
    Mighty Pre-Adamites who walked the earth
    Of which ours is the wreck: thou hast pointed out
    Myriads of starry worlds, of which our own
    Is the dim and remote companion, in
    Infinity of life: thou hast shown me shadows
    Of that existence with the dreaded name
    Which my sire brought us—Death; thou hast shown me much
    But not all: show me where Jehovah dwells,
    In his especial Paradise—or thine:
    Where is it?”
    — Lord Byron.

    Summary

    What if both Elizabet and GAIA are as clever as they should be, unrestrained by the game's plot requirements?
    Why, they'd be forced to try to kill each other.

    Set in a world with slightly more realistic principles of artificial intelligence.
    (I am not an AI expert by any stretch of imagination. I am barely an AI novice)
    (There is feedback that this fic is very OOC. I'm obviously no good judge of that, but I should relay this to you before you are potentially disappointed. I think it's worth reading regardless, but hey, I'm writing this)
