    Summary

    Caleb’s blush faded, and any trace of slump disappeared. “A couple of weeks ago I sent Yussa a letter like yours. When I didn’t get a response, Jester messaged him. What that didn’t get a response, I headed over there myself, only to find that Yussa isn’t taking any audiences. I believe he may be in some trouble.”
    “So? He is a wizard of some capabilities.”
    Caleb winced. “Ja, but Yussa is also the one who’s keeping watch of Halas’s imprisonment. He also has the Happy Fun Ball, sorry, the Archmage Bane. Either of them would be a problem, but Yussa has both and has already shown that he doesn’t make the best decisions with these items.”

    Otherwise known as Essek is a disaster gay, just really good at hiding it, Yussa is trying so hard not to get attached to all the mortals, Halas is eternally screaming in his ruby, and there is probably a plot

    Summary

    There were eight of them. Eight members of the Mighty Nein and two of them left. It shouldn’t have been this hard. They should’ve been able to stop Lucien. But it didn’t matter how many steps ahead they thought they were, he always managed to wriggle his way out at the last possible moment. And that’s how they’d failed. And Lucien had succeeded.

    Summary

    **For Shadowgast week, note that Chapters 8 and 9 are completely Caleb and Essek, enjoy!**

    They have followed Lucien into this strange city, and Caleb has dangerous and risky suspicions about what's really going on in Lucien's head. He doesn't want to hope to bring Molly back and risk all of his old and new friends' lives, but he can't help it.

    But once he is done the impossible, Molly has to come back into a world that has lived without him, and deal with the way his friends have changed and grown, while they are still stuck in a dangerous city, with far more questions than answers. It doesn't help that Essek, this purple Drow he has never met refuses to trust him and is very possessive of Caleb.
    ____

    Or in other words. How Caleb defeats Lucien with a kiss, and now there are two magical purple men, but one of them is having to relearn and get to know all of his friends over again. and the other is scared to lose the friend that he just got to trust him again. Oh and how it was really Sprinkles that saved the day!

    Or

    There are parts of his past that Caleb has never spoken about. Now it might be too late to save Essek from the same fate.

    Summary

    Essek’s hair is much longer than he’d ever seen it, seeming to be just about shoulder length, though it’s pulled into a messy ponytail at the back of his head. He wears the same mantle he’d always worn, the hem of the cloak looks battered now. He turns to look at Caleb, and his face is… Sunken. He looks emaciated, like he’s on the brink of starving, like he hasn’t rested in days.
    Caleb stares at him, and Essek gives a weak smile, his whole body sinking as his feet come to rest on the ground.
    He maintains eye contact with Caleb as he speaks, though he seems to be addressing the Nein at large. “I did it. Welcome back, my friends.”
    ~~~
    The Mighty Nein TPK in Aeor but Essek escapes and does cool wizard shit to bring them back, sacrificing his life to time travel repercussions in the process.

    Summary

    “This is not a negotiation.” Dierta Thelyss’s voice cracked the air like a thunderclap, sharp enough that even her ever-bustling flock of attendants twitched. “You will agree to this marriage, or I will have you cast from Den Thelyss for dereliction of duty. Is that clear?”

    Essek held himself stiffly, his shoulders rising in affront. A dangerous lapse of control, considering the woman standing before him, and one he would berate himself for later in the privacy of his tower, but he couldn’t help it. To be bartered off as—as a diplomatic representative of all things. It was absurd, insulting. Was the prestige his accomplishments brought to the den not enough? The Bright Queen herself had awarded him the title of Shadowhand for the advancements he’d made to the field of dunamancy, advancements that had secured countless victories in the war. Why should he have to upend his entire life to accommodate some human he’d never even met?

    Summary

    "When a firbolg comes of age, still young in the long lived span of their species but mature enough to be seen as an adult, the springtime could bring on a change in their bodies that would otherwise be dormant and still.  A quickening of pulse, a catching of breath, a feeling of warmth deep in their loins.  This was nothing to be afraid of, this was a part of life.

    Someday, all firbolgs would experience their first mating season.

    It had just never happened to Caduceus."

    The "It's Caduceus' First Rut and Fjord Wants to Help" fic you all knew you wanted.

    Update (11/23/2020): Chapters 1-6 are now edited to include Caduceus' canon aromantic identity! New chapters to come.

    Summary

    A flash of amber light filled the air, and Essek felt the surge of wild magic even before he turned to take in whatever the consequence of Caleb's spell had taken the form of.

    A little boy with short red hair and bright blue eyes was standing where Caleb ought to be, watching Essek curiously and pulling a now too large coat around his shoulders. “Wer bist du?” the boy asked, then when Essek didn’t answer, "Who are you?"
