    Summary

    Altaïr completed his mission, but not without suffering heavy injuries on his return to the Jerusalem bureau. Malik is obliged to tend to the wounds, although he does not mean he has to be nice about it.

    In the process, Malik finds his loyalties tested, as Altaïr might be a member of the Brotherhood, but is also traitor to the Brotherhood, dictated by Al-Mualim himself. How much is the life of Altaïr worth, the man responsible for his brother's death, his amputation, and the lives of so many other brothers? Where does his obligation to protecting him end?

    Summary

    In Asgard, post-Avengers, Loki is drawn into a whirlwind of deceit and ancient blood debt surrounding one of the Queen's handmaidens. At the same time, a shadowy menace stalks Asgard, eluding capture despite Thor's best efforts. When these two quests intertwine, Loki must confront both the rift between himself and his brother, and the sacrifices he is willing to make to meet his heart's greatest need.

    Summary

    A series about Shay's way to be coming a Templar, and actually being trusted by his former enemies.
    Basically, it's cutscenes and missions I feel should have been in the game, but were woefully abscent.

    Summary

    “Time and time again, faced with the ones who conspired to destroy me, you chose mercy over vengeance. You chose mercy, but was it just, or was it vindictive? My dear, Lord Protector: disgraced, dishonored, and a failure. You would be better suited as an assassin if not for the fact that you are blind to the blood staining your hands.”

    Jessamine leaned down, the shadows looming behind her and dancing like firelight, and placed a delicate hand on Corvo’s cheek, wiping a tear that escaped down the side of his face with a sharp-nailed finger. She whispered, like all those moments stolen between duty and rest, secreted away between one breath and the next, a perverted parody of a tender moment between lovers.

    “It was not mercy that stayed your blade, Corvo. Do not use me as an excuse for your choices any longer.”

    Corvo didn't dare look away.
    ...

    Response to an old kmeme:
    Samuel is not an alchemist and a half-vial is still enough for a prolonged, painful death without treatment. When Corvo begins to deteriorate while detained by the Whalers, Daud is faced with a difficult choice: does his desire for penance over the Empress' murder extend to saving the life of her Lord Protector?
