I love this game it is the best game so have some fanart with all my feels. (My fingers crossed forever that an artbook comes out. Want an artbook so much, this game was so artistic and had ingame paintings and the designs of everything were so great! Even the tarot cards are awesome!)

~upcoming SPOILERS~

I really liked Emily and Corvo's interaction. When rescuing Emily from the Golden Cat I was expecting to have to painstakingly escort her back to Samuel and the boat. I was kind of disappointed that I didn't get to do that.

So AU!Headcanon inspired in part by my refusal to use elixers except when in dire straits: Instead of Emily running back to Samuel after the Golden Cat, Corvo escorts her the entire way back. He’s wounded and tired, but he refuses to let Emily out of his sight now that he’s found her. She helps support him the last few meters to Samuel’s boat, encouraging him with ideas of all the things they can do now that they’re a family again.
(Then Corvo collapses and Samuel helps Emily parcel him into the boat so they can return to the Hounds Pit)

If you want to see the long, slow, torturous progress of the picture over 3 weeks, check out my wip tag on tumblr:
I warn you, I complain a lot about the picture hahah.

but I feel I learnt a fuckload about how to paint during this. Tried to imitate the ingame paintings a bit.
The background is based off a screencap I took of John Clavering Boulevard, near where Samuel parks his boat.
Reffed Emily's face heavily from her portait: [link]

Corvo's outfit is a pain, WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE. Ending screencaps he is standing away from the screen ;-;

Yes I still like critique, give advice away!

This would have been a great idea for that mission.

"Thanks for helping me, Corvo. Now I can help you."

I also wanted to escort her back maybe even carry her on my shoulder or back and blink with her, but no... still I wonder how she passed the wall of light and the guards...

I vaguely recall in my first play through (a middle chaos), my Emily was escorted past Weepers by Granny Rags then ran through the back alleys to get to Samuel (therefore not worrying about walls of lights and guards). I think Granny Rags mentioned her and one of the bottle street dudes mentioned seeing a young girl pass :x

I think mine was till you open the door of the VIP and she vanished... and she got to Samuel... don't recall precisely either, yet I will see in the next playthrough...

Oh WOW, I love your headcanon!
And about the costume, I feel with you! I never understood it either, but now I think that the blue vest part actually belongs to the coat. Maybe that was obvious to you anyway, but it was kind of my epiphany of the week. :D

I really like the multi-layered background for this. Almost like I could step in and walk past them.
