    Summary

    Hornet woke in the Black Egg Temple to the sight of her sibling's fractured mask. For the walk from the temple's central chamber to its exit, she thought herself truly alone in the world once more.

    When Hollow followed her out, she realized that wasn't so. But now she has to try and take care of her older sibling as they recuperate and learn to live in a world where they do not have to be pure, figure out what to do about what Little Ghost left of a body, and try to piece together two kingdoms which fell long ago.

    Life keeps throwing her surprises, too, which does not help.

    (Post-Dream No More ending, though it's fudged and mixed with the Godseeker endings some. Characters and tags will be updated as more chapters are posted.)

    Summary

    A quartet of statues stood in front of the barrier, their bodies turned so that they faced each other. Old stonework, as ancient as the dungeon itself, the details long ago worn away. The faces of the figures were gone, carved off in some fit of violence, leaving whoever they were - whatever they had been - a mystery.

    (not much older than us - did they die here? - heroes - losers - ancient history, perhaps - poor things)

    Summary

    "Death is not permitted here."

    The Radiance perishes and Hallownest falls silent. The infection of light spares few in its wake, turning the kingdom into a tomb filled with the bodies of the formerly afflicted. After some time spent recovering in Dirtmouth, Hornet chooses to depart the only home she's ever known. She descends one final time in search of survivors who may also wish to leave, thinking nothing of her sacrificed siblings, though she carries a pair of mismatched horns underneath her cloak.

    But something else stirs beneath her feet, ancient and full of grief, and Hornet's task proves far more treacherous than she had believed, her path littered with old gods and new threats. As she delves into the darkest reaches of Hallownest, haunted with visions of the life spent there, the orphaned princess learns that she must reckon with all she has lost, before the kingdom and its secrets destroy whatever she has left.
