    Summary

    In two different places, in two different moments in time, a chance meeting between two lost souls changed the course of the world around them.

    When Caleb met Nott, the first bond was formed in what would become a group of heroes. When a presumed-dead human met a terrified hafling boy, they wound two stories much closer together than either of them could have known.

    Or, Una Ermundrud escapes the flames and provides shelter to Luc Brenatto. Years later, two families thought to be lost forever are reunited all at once.

    Summary

    Caleb wakes up on Rumblecusp with no memories of who he is or how he got there. The people around him seem to care for him greatly, and he wants to do his best to help them, even when they fail to return his memories with their divine magic.

    Many things are confusing, but none more so than what appears to be his personal journal, written in a cipher he can no longer remember. Perhaps the handsome drow his friends brought him to in Rosohna may be of help.

    Summary

    Three years. Three years since they successfully faked his death and the Dynasty stopped looking. Three years of peace, of not having to leave Caleb and home behind.

    Why couldn't it last?

    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.

    "You saved me, Caleb Widogast. Time and again, so many times in so many ways, you have saved me. If I can repay you in even the smallest way by relieving you of this burden, then I do so gladly.”

    Based on that one Shadowgast Time Loop AU on tumblr. After freeing them both from an endless time loop centered on Essek's day of execution, Caleb asks to have his memory altered.

    Summary

    “This is not a negotiation.” Deirta Thelyss’s voice cracked the air like a thunderclap, sharp enough that even her ever-bustling flock of attendants twitched. “You will agree to this marriage, or I will have you cast from Den Thelyss for dereliction of duty. Is that clear?”

    Essek held himself stiffly, his shoulders rising in affront. A dangerous lapse of control, considering the woman standing before him, and one he would berate himself for later in the privacy of his tower, but he couldn’t help it. To be bartered off as—as a diplomatic representative of all things. It was absurd, insulting. Was the prestige his accomplishments brought to the den not enough? The Bright Queen herself had awarded him the title of Shadowhand for the advancements he’d made to the field of dunamancy, advancements that had secured countless victories in the war. Why should he have to upend his entire life to accommodate some human he’d never even met?

    Summary

    Essek thelyss thought he was being clever polymorphing as a female drow to escape the eyes of a Dynasty scout. What he wasn't counting on was Caleb's attraction to his female form. Or for the physiology to be...so very accurate.

    Summary

    Caleb's history with Trent was worse than he had ever been able to explain aloud. He didn’t want anyone to know. Wanted to forget.

    Trent Ikathon needed to bring Bren, Caleb, back into their little family. Need to remind him where he belonged. To whom he belonged.

    Essek would have sobbed if there was anything left in him to move or break. Trent had taken all that away piece by piece. He lay still where he had been left, crushed under the weight of the pain of the last hours, of the endless days of torture, kept in a timeless demi-plane until time lost meaning.

    But he didn’t have a choice.

    Caleb needed him.

    Set after The Things He Took, but not necessary to understand.

    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

    After Aeor, Caleb buys a house in Rexxentrum with Beau and Yasha. For the first time in more than seventeen years, he has some semblance of stability. Caleb is not sure he's ready to handle it, but he's trying, and his friends are eager to see him live a good life, by force if necessary.

    And then Soltryce Academy approaches him with a job offer, which could give Caleb the chance to protect the next generation of wizards the way he had needed at their age. Caleb's goal of preventing what happened to him from happening to anyone else, however, takes a far more personal turn than even he could have anticipated.

    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".

    Summary

    Mollymauk Tealeaf was never meant to be king. The bastard son of a demon, he expected to be dead long before he did anything of note. When he met his friends and went adventuring, he found that that was everything he needed, and he never asked for more.
    When his father and brother die unexpectedly, Mollymauk is left the sole heir of a kingdom halfway to ruin. Good thing he's a quick learner.

    Caleb Widogast knows his fate. He is a weapon, a bargaining chip, an experiment. He has no right to mourn the life he burned with his own hands.

    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.
