young!Daud/the Outsider, “Come over here and make me.”
written for @kesskay a while ago, figured I might as well post it here! I’m also taking prompts for other Dishonored fic, just drop me an ask or something :)
The mark fascinated Daud, though he only dared to uncover it at the shrines he found hidden away in the forgotten places of Dunwall. Getting caught at a shrine to the Outsider was bad enough; Daud doubted being found to bear the Outsider’s mark would make the crime much worse.
He’d begun to make a name for himself before the Outsider had marked him. At times, he wondered if that was how he’d caught the deity’s attention; at others, he thought it hardly mattered why, only that he had. The Outsider was a force beyond nature, and Daud could scarcely understand why he was worthy.
But on nights like tonight, when he was high off another successful job made possible by the abilities the Outsider’s mark granted him- Well, he thought that he could see it. Who else besides Daud was worth the Outsider’s time in this filthy city?
