  1. Summary

    Canon divergence (?) AU taking place in the nebulous time period between when Lucio became Count and just before he married Nadia. A series of PWPs rife with romantic tension and varying degrees of possessive behavior, but there's nothing anyone really doesn't want (or they at least don't mind).

    Entries in this series will be sporadically posted, as they're really only being written for my self-indulgence, lol.

  2. Summary

    There are various technically small but consequentially big spoilers, as well as a few outright in-your-face ones, in these works, so please don’t read these unless you’ve played through most, if not all, of the Books of Julian’s route! Thank you very much!

    A series featuring the happy and domestic days of neighborhood Doctor Julian and the neigborhood Magician’s Apprentice following the crisis that faced them in The Arcana. It has some unknown amount of parts that are all loosely connected (you can mostly read them out of order or without reading others, though), and take place varying times after the events of the game.

    The Apprentice has no established name in these works, but does use he/him and has a dick. Feel free to imagine whatever you like, however. :^)

    Summary

    They were sharing a pot of tea in the empty bar of the Lavish Chateau. Streams of morninglight caught the steam, made it ghostly as it curled around Caduceus’ features.

    Not for the first time, Fjord had to fight down the impulse to seize him roughly by the collar and kiss him.

    (Fjord and Caduceus make out in the ocean. It's a lot for everyone involved).

    Summary

    Fjord was born to more than a servant’s life, but doesn’t know it. Prince Caduceus is betrothed to a man, but the wrong one.

    A tale of mistaken identities, fairytale foolery, and the power of true love’s kiss.

    (Or. a loose retelling of ‘The Goose Girl’, with some decidedly CR twists.)

    Summary

    Essek has always preferred sleeping to trancing. Like his lack of reverence for the Luxon, it puts him at odds with Kryn traditions and distances him from his peers. As he gets older, he discovers that he can shape his dreams however he wishes.

    It's a useful tool. An escape. An indulgence.

    When he starts seeing Caleb in his dreams, however, his control - and his grasp on what is real - begins to fray.

    Summary

    “You wouldn’t happen to have any more specific ideas, would you?” Fjord asks, attempting an air of nonchalance.

    Caduceus doesn’t seem convinced, but he’s kind enough not to comment on it. He just shakes his head, folding away the tray with a tired smile, and Fjord feels his heart sink.

    “I wish I could help,” Caduceus replies, heavy and genuine, “but I think this is between you and your subconscious.”
     

    Fjord should be used to unsettling dreams by now, but a recurring nightmare is wearing on his nerves. If he wants to break the cycle, he’ll need to try some introspection… which means examining his feelings surrounding the Wildmother – and Caduceus – a little more closely.

    Summary

    there’s a presence always at his shoulder that he never noticed, and now it’s gone and he feels like he’s blind on one side. every time fjord goes to look for caduceus, to laugh at something jester’s done, for an explanation on why that plant looks the way it does, for guidance, to soothe that buzzing feeling in his chest, to steal that last cup of tea he always needs to fall asleep, he’s not there.

    or: post-travelercon, caduceus is mistaken for kotho. the mighty nein, their half-orc especially, are not happy about this.
