    Summary

    The first two times he was brought back to life, there was a piece of him missing. He shouted over the aching void as if declaring that he was whole could make it so.

    This time he truly is whole. It's a lot more complicated than he thought it would be, and that's even before involving the wizard who raised him from the dead.

    Summary

    Healing is never linear but it is healing just the same. And Caleb Widogast is getting better whether he wants to or not.

    A College AU about growing as people and figuring shit out, without a whole lot of actual college.

    Because sometimes when you're not fighting for your lives in a mineshaft full of gnolls it takes a little longer to come together as a family.

    Summary

    Floor nine of the Sehanine Building at Rexxentrum Academy is where the school houses anyone they don't quite know what to do with. Anyone who marked down anything but "male" or "female" on their surveys, anyone who has a tumultuous past, anyone they might want to keep an eye on. Caleb and Molly start out a tenuous friendship as neighbors on floor nine, neither aware of the colorful dreams the other shares with them each night.

    But it's probably just a coincidence that Caleb dreams of a purple haired, horned creature that looks a lot like Mollymauk. And that Molly dreams of a boy consumed by flames. Right?

    Summary

    Bren Aldric Ermendrud had been in the Vergesson Sanatorium for almost six years. He thought he was broken beyond repair. He was a monster, and he couldn’t handle the pressure or level of cruelty required anymore.

    Then an old woman clasped her hands on either side of his head and spoke some strange arcane words in a voice that seemed much more youthful than her appearance, in an accent he had never heard before. Nicodranas, perhaps? But it was like a veil had been lifted.

    He could remember everything. The real and the fake. Very little made sense, but Bren wanted revenge. First he needed to get the hell out of here.

    The aasimar and the purple tiefling dragging away the crazed old woman were probably his best bet at getting any answers.

    Summary

    When Bren murdered his parents, he broke.

    When he found out that they were never traitors, something deep within him, something primal and arcane, snapped like an overstrung violin string, sharp, dissonant, and echoing throughout his body in strange vibrations.

    One moment he was curled up on the cold tile floor of the Vergesson Sanatorium, the next Bren was in a strange field of what might have been wheat, flowing in the light breeze. After telling a strange purple satyr a fake name, he became Caleb Widogast and was thrust into a world heavy with magic, full of fae, and enough support to start to overcome his past.

    Summary

    When Bren Aldric Eremendrud was a boy, whenever he felt small or lonely, he’d look up at the stars, wondering if there was life up there. Turns out, he was looking in the wrong direction. When alien life entered our world it was from the deep beneath the Lucidian Ocean, a fissure between two tectonic plates. A portal between the dimensions, a breach.

    To fight the Kaiju wreaking havoc on the world, mankind created monsters of their own. The Jaeger Program was implemented. Jaeger. Zemnian for hunter. Monsters designed to put these otherworldly abominations back in their place.

    One pilot couldn’t handle the neural load to pilot the Jaegers alone, so a two pilot system was implemented, one on the left side, one on the right. The two pilots had to link their minds to work in perfect synchronous harmony to ensure that the mechs could run properly. With technology being advanced from cooperation and a worldwide ceasefire to stop this problem, the Pan Lucidian Defense Corps was born.

    Summary

    The Mighty Nein are working out this whole 'family' thing and mostly succeeding with cramming into Fjord's shitty, one-bedroom apartment.

    What could possibly go wrong?

    -
    The interludes from 'could be weird (but i think i'm into it)' will be going here in the future, and I'm transitioning the current interludes over as well.

    Summary

    Urban fantasy Nicodranas where most of the MN escaped to, after dealing with whatever trauma they have, and many of them have gotten some well needed help at Pumat Sol's trauma group therapy sessions. Caleb and Nott found Yussa, Jester, Yasha, and Caduceus in Nicodranas and everything is softer (and in firm denial of ep 26, even with recent events in ep 111). Found family is the best family, especially when you think you murdered your birth family.

    Basically, my otp is Caleb Widogast and therapy, and in this essay I will...

    Summary

    Caleb loses a bet with Veth that results in him being required to wear ugly Winter's Crest sweaters, a different one every day, for the month before the festival. Fortunately, there's a used clothing store in Rexxentrum that just happens to be owned by everyone's favorite leetle blue tiefling.

    E. rating kicks in at chapter 7, 9, 10, 14 if that's what you're here for (or if you want to avoid it).

    1/7: This is turning into a Jester Lavorre character study wrapped in WJ fluff and smut and I'm not mad about it.

    Summary

    The sky is gray, the wind is cold, and he, as is in line with his cowardly nature, does not want to be here.

    The chill bites at his nose, cuts across his cheek. Though his clothes are of fine make (or at least the finest he’s had in several years), he can easily imagine feeling the cold creeping in, peeling back the layers one by one to curl around him and freeze him in place. A true Zemnian winter.

    It's Barren Eve, and Caleb and Jester are in Blumenthal.

    Summary

    “So, how was it?” Jester asked eagerly.

    “Was he an asshole?” Beau leaned against the wall.

    “Should we kill him?” Veth asked, half serious, half not.

    “He is,” Caleb paused, trying to collect his thoughts while he chewed a piece of bread. “Well, he is brilliant.” That much was evident right away. It was just as clear that Eseek was downright attractive, in a way that had simultaneously made it hard to look at him and to look away. Caleb swallowed and decided that wasn’t worth mentioning.

    The Mighty Nein's orchid smuggling work isn't exactly legal, but it's doing good. They're helping out the small network of researchers they call friends. But when Yeza is arrested for owning illegal plants, the Mighty Nein find themselves entangled with prominent orchid researcher Essek Thelyss and his less than savory colleagues.
