    Summary

    More than hearts are on the line in Aeor, as Caleb Widogast and Essek Thelyss search for answers, and discover that there's more to the ruined city than they ever knew.. and more to themselves, as well. The arrival of Verin further complicates things, but the chaos has only just gotten started with Exandria once more in peril, and without the Mighty Nein together to stop it. Can two broken wizards and some unlikely allies do the trick?

    Summary

    “Your target is Essek Thelyss - Shadowhand to the Bright Queen. A noble of the Dynasty who is well trusted and, perhaps more importantly, in the forefront of the study of the dynasty’s carefully guarded magics, though they do not formally recognize him as such. As you know, the Dynasty poses a substantial threat to all who live in the Empire. They seek to take our lands and impose their cult they claim as religion upon our people. The best way we can avoid this is to gain better access to their magics, understand them, learn how they function so that they no longer hold the upper hand in battles. We have determined that Essek Thelyss is the best positioned to support this goal.” Trent’s scheming smile spread upward expectantly. “So Bren, my protege, I turn to you. Can you achieve this for your country?”

    Summary

    This is a timeline where those seven wandering souls that should become the Mighty Nein never meet in that tavern in Trostenwald. Instead, they each carve out their own path to infamy with blood and steel and fire, succumbing to the darkness within them somewhere along the way.

    *~*~*

    The evil!M9 AU nobody asked for (but I wrote it anyway because I like to make myself sad) - this time with an actual plot!

    Summary

    PART IV: THE ISLAND

    A year after his rescue of Caleb and the killing of Trent Ikithon, Fjord returns to Darktow at the bidding of Uk'atoa, ready to embark on the next stage of his journey with his leviathan patron. But the farther he pursues his quest, the more the residuum in Caleb eats away at him; Caleb knows it is only a matter of time before he succumbs to the crystals' growth, and a solution seems more elusive than ever. As forces greater than they are threaten their lives and their love, it is up to Caleb and Fjord to decide how far they will go to protect themselves and more importantly, each other, and what they will trade for that power.

    Because power, as it turns out, is the only thing that can keep them safe.

    Summary

    Obann's team was harsh, Obann's team was strict beyond measure. Yasha knew that sort of thrived in it. Zuala struggled and when one performance goes wrong it changes everything for them.

    Unable to cope, Yasha turns to Football, hoping that the green of the field and the energy of the players she coaches can bring her back to form and back to life.

    Fresh out of college and out from under her parent's thumb, Beau wants to follow in the footsteps of the greats of Olympic History, falling feet first into Yasha's team, the Cobalt Sentinels. Determined to show her parents that she can do more than cause trouble, Beau can't keep her eyes off the gorgeous Assistant Coach who looks less than thrilled to be there this year.

    Beau's got a plan to change that, and it starts with a headshot.

    Summary

    When workaholic Essek Thelyss is forced to take a year-long sabbatical, he takes over his brother's lease on the tropical island of Rumblecusp, where there's no phone signal and the only wifi is at the local bakery. The only consolation is that the guy who owns the secondhand book store in the middle of town is very handsome.

    (aka: essek is forced to have his hot boy summer)

    Summary

    "This is going to save us all, Bren. You should know."

    Safety is hard to find in the post-outbreak world. The community of Jackson made it work somehow. They have water, food, and even electricity. The Mighty Nein helps keep it safe, alongside the many other survivors. Since arriving, Verin has had time to build a nice life there. Essek found a way to, maybe, do some good for the people. Caleb is finally letting go of his past.

    But the echoes of a rotten world do not let go that easily, and when old faces appear, crumbling the newly found peace, it's time to face demons far more terrible than an infection.

    Summary

    New York in the 1850's is a cruel place.
    Molly Tealeaf knows that more than any poor sucker. Fleeing famine and cruelty from the british crown only to end up a whore and a slave, their identity a tightly guarded secret for fear of imprisonment or death.
    Caleb Widogast survived unimaginable odds to rise to the top of the New York crime order. Feared for his brutality and his rage against a certain corrupt politician, could a chance meeting during an attempt to relieve some tension give him some new perspective?

    Summary

    Because even though by many metrics Caleb should have been a terrible choice to put in a beacon-machine, having never received one himself, and by many metrics Essek should have been a terrible choice to receive a beacon-machine, given his pointed refusal to being consecuted at the usual age of sixteen, they had scored so highly in aptitude with each other that now here they were: sun-blinded and eyes wide open as the ship finally docked, shuddering, in the City.

     

     

    Essek is a newly-arrived ambassador in Rexxentrum, Beauregard is his assigned cultural liaison, and Caleb is the consecuted soul at the back of his mind. Empires and Dynasties do not serve: they consume.

    Summary

    Anniversaries used to be a guaranteed positive for Jester. Of course, that had been true when she was living off books, and paint, and her Mama's stories. The anniversary of a death is a lot less romantic when you can't close the cover.
    -
    This piece is potentially part of a longer story: an AU where the Nein never quite became the Nein, in which Jester, Astrid, and Beau struggle to understand each other in the wake of a death that they were certain they'd moved on from.

    Summary

    For a moment he'd just stared into his own sky blue eyes. And then, they'd changed. The sun set, darkening the blue and causing little pricks of light to brighten. And then, he’d fallen. Into the eyes, into the mirror, into the night sky.

    Summary

    The tales of the people of Exandria are not always in great deeds and grand adventures, but can be condensed into smaller moments between individuals across time and space.

    (Or a flashfic/drabble anthology proving that SOME PEOPLE (this author) can write fics under 1500 words, many from Tumblr requests and some just because. Each chapter contains individual warnings and summaries.)

    Summary

    Essek knows about soulmates and soulmarks. He knows they can be platonic and/or romantic.

    But he never knew that he could have one.

    Or more than that.

    Eight people who call themselves Nein are going to change that.
