    Summary

    The blaring two-tone alarms finally quieted, leaving a high-pitch ring in Caleb's hand-covered ears. His heart was still racing, and his breaths - still short and irregular - came out in stifled chokes and wheezes. He rocked, shook his hands, hummed a constant pitch, but nothing seemed to work, the fear and panic too overwhelming.

    ---

    Caleb's start at University is a rough one. This fact is made clear after an incident during his first Chemistry assignment.

    Summary

    After six painfully long years, the man in question was no longer the child that Essek remembered and yet could still render Essek breathless, could still leave him feeling weak at the knees. Essek had to grip the edge of the stadium for a long moment as he focused on his breathing. He’d made a promise all those years ago, and now as he looked at the gorgeous man in the center of the ring fighting, literally, for his life, Essek realized he’d failed at that promise.

    Consecution AU in which Essek and Bren met at the Soltryce Academy when they were both much younger. Even back then, Essek had been more than a little smitten, but unprepared to admit it. Now, nearly six years later, Caleb gets the chance to see all the things Essek did in the name of love.

    Summary

    When Bren was young, everyone said he was destined to be a hero. Born with a powerful fire quirk, how could he not be?

    When Bren went to The Soltryce Academy, he excelled. How could he not?

    When Bren's parents burned in a fire he started, he broke. How could he not?

    Bren died in that fire, and now, Caleb Widogast is out to burn The MLA and Trent Ickithon to the ground.

    Summary

    Caleb instinctively reaches for the energy of a Counterspell, but Nott suddenly rears back and knocks against him as she avoids a strike, and it throws him off enough that the swipe of protective magic fizzles out with less force than he intended, and then -

    Everything is fuzzy and indistinct in a way that frightens him, but he can’t - it - his mind won’t focus on it. He doesn’t understand. He feels so confused.

    Or: Sometimes the most interesting thing you can do to a character is see how they function without their greatest strength. Caleb gets hit with Feeblemind :)

    Summary

    When Bren murdered his parents, he broke.

    When he found out that they were never traitors, something deep within him, something primal and arcane, snapped like an overstrung violin string, sharp, dissonant, and echoing throughout his body in strange vibrations.

    One moment he was curled up on the cold tile floor of the Vergesson Sanatorium, the next Bren was in a strange field of what might have been wheat, flowing in the light breeze. After telling a strange purple satyr a fake name, he became Caleb Widogast and was thrust into a world heavy with magic, full of fae, and enough support to start to overcome his past.

    Summary

    Kingsley just wanted a pint in Bysaes Tyl. Or seven. He really didn't want to fuck with wizards. Being drugged by some fucking spell, dragged through the Pearlbow Wilderness, and deposited in a gross, cold torture tower wasn't his idea of a fun night.

    But Da'leth's lackeys have Caleb so I guess no one can catch a fucking break.

    Summary

    Even from half a room away one could have seen how the jewellery shimmered an unnatural pale white, even covered in filth. By eyesight alone Caleb could tell that the palm sized medallion in Nott’s grasp was magical.

    Nott had turned towards him, away from the little black box she had successfully unlocked, ears perked up in joy. Her lamp-like eyes crinkling in the way Caleb fondly knew spoke of self-satisfaction. He could just barely hear her chest rumbling as she thrusted her fist towards him.

    Hand held out, Caleb did not expect the hefty weight of the amulet dropped into it. Nor the hissing pop of latent magics activating upon contact with his skin.

    Summary

    “Well then, I shall ask you a question,” said Essek, “Do you believe I should participate in conversation more than I do?”

    Caleb raised his head in alarm. Did his friend think he was being criticised? Did Essek interpret Caleb’s judgement of his own silence as reflected upon him? Caleb raised his hands plaintively, “No, not at all. In fact, I think I’d be a little taken aback if you did. Please understand, it is not silence itself that I dislike and I certainly do not condemn yours, only my...lack of ability.”

    “Why should you hold yourself to a standard you do not hold others to?"

    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

    For many, college is a chance to restart and make yourself the person you want to be. You can rebuild yourself and start anew. That was exactly what these 8 planned to do.

     

    AKA, I'm doing a college AU. Read it if you like angst, domestic fluff, found family, and more! I'll focus a lot on Caleb in this, but other characters have planned arcs and will get their time to shine.
