    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

    A retelling of Caleb and Molly's backstories set in the 90's. Smut is in Chapter 7 only and completely skipable. Basically a generic romance of my boi's getting together.

    Mildly dubious consent tagged, but it's completely consensual. See chapter 7 notes.

    Modern/90s AU widomauk drabble for a series of tiktoks that I'm doing. Tags will update as I write and make decisions. Character descriptions were deliberately vague so anyone can join on tiktok as human versions or canon compliant versions, but I've decided against it cause Molly and Jester need tails. But human versions are absolutely welcome on the tok tag.

    POV will alternate between Caleb and Mollymauk. Please feel free to write the story from any of the other characters pov, I just wanna know about it so I can read it! If you make videos, I also wanna know so I can show some love.

    Posting weekly on Tuesdays, except when I'm feeling feisty and post a surprise chapter between regular posts.

    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

    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

    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

    When Caleb makes the decision to give himself up to Trent, to ensure that the rest of the Mighty Nein aren’t captured and can defeat Lucien unencumbered, it takes the Mighty Nein on an unexpected journey of torture, cruelty, childhood love, and a twist no one saw coming. No one, but a single drow. An AU in which Essek and Bren knew one another long before the Nein came into the picture.

    Summary

    During the first night of TravelerCon, Caleb encounters a woman that he wronged in his youth; someone he never imagined he would see again.

    Now, events that occurred over seventeen years ago - and the advice of Jester Lavorre - seal his fate on the crown of a mace, leading the man who was "Bren Aldric Ermendrud" into a web of lies, love, violence, enchantment, family once lost, and the doom of all his past deeds. But he won't be going alone. (Canon-divergent, post-CR2Ep107.)

    Summary

    Caleb’s own hands are scarred and callused, and maybe, just maybe, they would be enough to hold the jagged pieces of Essek together.

    Summary

    The impossible was done even before they even had to battle the Somnoven, and Molly had been brought back to the Might Nein with a kiss. Back to friends that have changed and grown, and some even have fallen into love while he was gone. To a world that has lived without him. But could it last?

    Thrust into a fight that he could not have understood, Essek had to learn what it really meant to trust and love his friends, how rich life could be if he thought of more than himself. But there is still danger lurking for him from his past choices.

    Caleb finds himself between two magical purple men, who shouldn’t still be in his life, but against all odds are right by his side. Even as the adventures keep coming after Cognoza, with Trent’s defeat, lap dances at the Lavish Chateau, fights with the Cerberus Assembly, a bisexual maelstrom of sexual tension from all his past and present love interests, revelations about the Luxon and Lucien’s past.

    Come for the sexual humor, stay for the angst. A reimagining of episodes 136-141 and after. Slow burn Shadowidomauk. Smut is marked with “*” in chapter titles if that's what you are here for.

    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

    Veth squeezed his hand gently and patted the back. “I’ve gotta pay bail first. Then we can get you out.” She whispered, forlorn, and placed a dry peck of the lips on his knuckles.

    The boy still didn’t answer her. His fear was still a mask over his face, and Veth looked at it with a frown.

    “I won’t hurt you, my boy.” She whispered. “I wouldn’t dream of it.”

    I wanted an alternate backstory where Veth meets a Feebleminded Bren and takes him in. And since they say ”God helps those who help themselves”, I just went ahead and started making it myself. Enjoy.

    Summary

    "There’s an after-school program that I think would do you some good. Like a club, sort of. You could meet some people like Nott.” Mr. Sol’s smile was wide and seemed genuine. “You seemed to get along well with him.”
    “Oh.” Caleb wanted to protest, but he couldn’t. He didn’t need to meet people. He’d had people before, and it had done very little good. He was fine alone.
    “I’ll give your parents a call and let them know, okay?”
    “Ja. Okay.”
    Mr. Sol called the people Caleb was staying with and told them about Zadash High’s “Behavioral Correction Program”. And Caleb left.

    It had only been a month since he’d left rehab and come to this school, and he was already being recommended for a troubled kid's group. So, overall, he was off to a shining start."

    In which Caleb has a lot of trauma to work through, Nott worries about Caleb, and the Mighty Nein is A Lot To Handle (tm).

    The first work in a shamelessly self indulgent, stupidly elaborate High School AU. Basically, the Mighty Nein are shoved into an after school program together. Slow burn bonding, angst, and probably cuddling to follow.
    Title from Noah Kahan's song "Please".
