    Summary

    Nomad...that is what she is. Just a wanderer in wilds; helping machines when she could. It wasn't much but it was all she could do against ravaging ways of the mankind. Her life was simple. So simple...that is until she came.

    Summary

    In a primitive tribal world where strange and monstrous animalistic machines roam the wilderness, two young warriors, Aloy and Celia, go on a quest to find out the true reason for the attack on the Proving, along the way discovering more and more about the Old Ones’ world and why it fell; and how they can prevent the same thing happening to their world.

    Summary

    Throughout the time that Aloy and Erend meet and got to know each other, there were a lot of things that went unsaid between them. Even right up until the final battle. What would they have said, if given the chance? What would happen if they did get that chance, and took that step?

    Chapter 1 is canon through Erend's POV with non-canon pre-game background. Chapter 2 is canon through Aloy's POV with non-canon pre-game background, Chapter 3 is post canon, 3rd person POV. This only has moments in the game when they were together for major plot points for chapter 1 and 2.

    Summary

    Defeating HADES was only the first step to restoring GAIA and saving the world. Too bad he’s not the only subfunction out for blood, nor is he as dead as Aloy would like. A fall through unsteady ground grants Aloy the help she needs in rebuilding the AI while a broken focus leads them to a previously untouched ruin, where not everything is as it seems. Lucky for Aloy she has more allies than she knows, and not every subfunction is plotting her destruction.

    And, yes, you read right.

    Aloy and Nil

    Summary

    (1st Act Spoilers for the game Horizon Zero Dawn)

    About midway through her journey, Aloy is struck by a rumor which brings her far to the south of the Carja Sundom, to an enigmatic tribe that lives among machines no one has ever seen before. They worship some sort of goddess of love and, rumor has it, receive motherless children borne of cauldrons.

    She sets off for answers immediately.

    Summary

    "Two braves who fell, two who rose again. There were two cries in the night, two broken Watchers at the mouth of the river."

    "Broken Watchers," Lansra says with a sneer. "Next you'll say there was an arrow that split the leaf of the wild ember before the dew had dried."

    Jezza cried out and covered her mouth in astonishment. "Yes, Sister, yes, an arrow. I saw the split leaves on a wild ember with my own eyes. We must anoint a second Seeker, the signs are all in line."

    Summary

    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

    Summary

    Different worlds can be more similar than expected, care must be taken lest one slip between them. The consequences of walking in one world grow even greater upon return to the other, and magic is not lightly forgotten.

    Bast isn't certain why he left or why he's back, but he does know this: there is a Scourge on Earth as was on Eos, and he won't let it take his family. Not this time.
