    Summary

    This is just a collection of one-shots that I am challenging myself to do one each day in December. They will all be Critical Role, but will range between Campaign 2 and 3 mostly with maybe a little based on Legend of Vox Machina. I AM NOT CAUGHT UP in Campaign 3 and am on episode 35, so please no spoilers in any comments. Tags, relationships, and characters will be updated as the month progresses. Here is a link to the prompts I will be using: https://www.writerswrite.co.za/31-writing-prompts-for-december-2022/

    Summary

    Sixteen years as a Volstrucker has taken its toll on Astrid. She’s grown accustomed to dancing to Trent’s tune, salving her battered conscience with the knowledge that everything she’s done, she’s done for the good of the Empire.

    When Bren reappears in her life unexpectedly he gives her cause to reevaluate everything she believes in, and turns her world upside down all over again.

    The canon events of Campaign Two told from Astrid's (and sometimes Eadwulf's) PoV.

    Chapter Seventeen now live: With the assignment in Eiselcross coming to an abrupt end, Astrid reflects on the realities of her situation back in Rexxentrum. A meeting with Bren in an old haunt of theirs leads her to make a decision that could spell disaster for all of them.

    Summary

    The fact that six mercenaries and a weasel have stowed away on the highest-security vessel in the Dynasty’s fleet is, technically, a serious problem that bodes poorly for the rest of their journey. But Essek is delighted. He’d been dreading a long and tense voyage to Mutalos, without any company except for a skeleton crew comprised mostly of military personnel, the awkward spare scourger, and his—

    It feels strange, to think of Beck as his wife. Even calling her his enemy feels too intimate.

    (In which Essek agrees to a political marriage to ensure intergalactic peace and keep himself alive, only to discover that his wife has married him for exactly the opposite reason.)

    Summary

    Astrid had given herself over as a weapon for the Empire long ago. But, upon seeing her beloved Bren alive after all these years, that mask began to break. She found herself wanting nothing more than to run to him, to leave duty behind her, and to live a life with him they both knew they would never have. But sometimes, it's just too late.

    Summary

    Astrid and Wulf have spent the past eleven years pretending that Bren's absence didn't tear them to shreds. It almost works, their broken little partnership, the pointed refusal to acknowledge the way things were Before. Eleven years later, and all either of them has to show for it is an impressive collection of scars, piles of corporate paperwork, and some of the dullest--and most essential--jobs in the Cerberus Assembly.

    When Astrid locks her sights on taking down their Xhorhasian spy, however, Bren unexpectedly reenters their life, and shatters the careful illusion of functionality that they've built for themselves as easily as swiping a glass off a table...

    Summary

    As a junior archivist at the Chantry, Beau jumped on the chance to be present at the peace talks between mages and Templars. When a terrible breach in the sky opened, it killed all present; except for Beau. With the help of her friends, it is up to Beau to close the Breach and apparently also solve every other problem in Thedas. There's plenty of time for shenanigans, sidequests, and falling in love in between, though.

    Or, a Dragon Age Inquistion AU.

    Summary

    “Hey, can we get this?” Caleb froze at the sight of Jester waving around a bound spell scroll. The sensation of a cane landing on his back and shameful pleasure filled his mind for a moment before he managed to blink it away.
    “Aw, yeah! It’d be handy to have a charm spell on hand when shit hits the fan.” Beau added.
    “Cayleb, can you spare any gold right now?” Jester had pleaded. The wizard choked over his words for a moment.
    “I’d… Rather not support… Makers of those kinds of scrolls.” He managed.
    “Really, why?” Beau, ever inquisitive.
    “They’re… Made kind of… Unethically, you know?”

    ~ O ~

    In which Trent Ikkythong taught his students that charm spell scrolls require certain ritual preparation, Caleb Widogast goes a good thirty-plus years without realising he was sexually abused, and I ask myself why the hell I want to hurt my comfort characters so bad.
    Serious hurt, with endgame positive ending.
    Seriously y’all, read them tags and take care of yourselves.

    Summary

    They switch positions again late in the evening. Astrid moves between the two boys, her legs tangled up with Bren’s and her head resting on the soft hair of his chest. She can feel every movement of his chest and focuses on its rhythm, taking deep breaths of the soothing smoky scent that appears to be permanently ingrained in his skin. He can feel her breathing lighten from the tight, heavy breaths of before.

    They are four hours and 33 minutes into their night in the tower when Bren feels warm wetness against his thigh.
