    Summary

    Struggling. Unlikely odds. Terrible beasts.

    Caleb let go. Let himself be pulled. Essek screamed, slipped into Undercommon, terror palpable in his voice, desperation obvious and raw. The strange, otherworldly smell of dunamancy began to fill the air, ozone and something else, something unnamable, something that screamed of nostalgia and whispered future and sang the siren song of possibility. Caleb kept his eyes up, trained at the beast, sharp, glowing fangs, one part ice shard, two parts slobber and old blood, polished selenite stakes, immeasurable darkness in its cavernous throat.

    ----

    During an Aeor expedition, an encounter with a beast leaves Caleb injured. Essek, of course, takes care of him.

    Summary

    After Caleb's plan for the T-doc is changed, there are some old demons to face, and feelings to deal with.

    -----------------------------------

    Liam said Essek and Caleb would eventually become romantically envolved - once they worked out their own shit. And I dediced to run with it.

    Also, Caleb is full of angst and trauma and I just couldn't leave that alone.

    Summary

    Something is very wrong with Essek. He has far too many limbs, is sporting claws and sharp teeth, hisses and growls, and can probably fit inside Caleb’s component pouch. But Caleb is certain he can reverse this strange Aeorian magic. Really, what kind of wizard would he be if he couldn't? It just takes some elbow grease and hard work.

    Summary

    Essek, the master of time magic itself, had never met a person with such an ability. “What time is it now?” he asked to sate his curiosity.

    Caleb didn’t even hesitate. “8:49.”

    “You know it to the minute,” Essek murmured. This man and his beautiful brain. It had been so long since he’d felt such a way, desiring someone in any capacity, and he found himself wanting to know everything that Caleb thought, to understand what made him tick. Caleb knew the exact time at all times, just from his mind alone, and something about that was incredibly sexy.

    Summary

    They were three moves into the game when Caleb looked up at him with an unreadable expression. "I thought you said you didn't remember how to play?"

    "I never said that."

    Summary

    No. 1 - ALL TRUSSED UP AND STILL NOWHERE TO GO

     “You have to let go” | barbed wire | bound

    --

    "You have to let go." Essek pleaded, looking up at Caleb from his precarious position. 

    "No! We don't know how deep the drop is. We don't know if the field extends all the way down- it's too risky. Just let me try. Please." Caleb begged in return, doing his very best to hold onto Essek.

    Summary

    His own personal journey into masculinity took place during a stretch of years when he was already enrolled at the Soltryce Academy. By then, he was surrounded by arcanists, and physical displays of strength mattered very little, which suited him just fine. He was a man, and he felt a man, and that was that.

    ---

    In which Caleb finds himself being appreciated for something he isn't, usually.

    EDIT: This is a 5 + 1 things, though now I'm not sure how to call it. Five times Essek is horny on main and one time Caleb is too?

    Summary

    Aeor is for lovers. And Wild Magic. Combine the two plus two squishy wizards pining for each other and you have the best romance trope in existence.

    Consists of short, unrelated chapters, each centered around a different Wild Magic effect (plus some of my own). There will be mild slow burn romance through most of the chapters and they are assumed to be chronological, though can be read in any order.

    **Suspended Indefinitely**
