    Summary

    Deirta Thelyss slowly stepped into the room, letting her eyes roam across the ordered chaos of her son’s old workspace. She stopped before him, her gown pristine, hair precisely braided, and elegant jewelry dangling from her ears. By comparison, Essek was a mess.

    Essek left Rosohna for good after whatever good fortune left him alive after the unspeakable events in Aeor. After abandoning his position and choosing a life on the run in hopes of avoiding the consequences looming over his shoulder, Essek finds the time to contemplate what it means to have a family and what to do about the one he left behind.

    Summary

    Essek Thelyss will be getting his first anamnesis memories any day now. But before that happens, he still has time to take out of his reading to attend to little brothers who decide to fall in shrubberies and get coated in mud.

    Everything is going to be fine and Essek is not worried at all (this is a lie).

    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

    No. 15 - FEED A COLD, STARVE A FEVER

    delirium | fever dreams | bees

    --

    At first, they were glad that Essek had remained asleep during the time that Caleb had been gone, though that feeling was soon overtaken by concern. Upon taking a closer look at the unconscious dark elf, it became apparent that this was no ordinary sleep. Essek was running a concerningly high fever, made even more concerning by the fact that the elf usually ran cooler than most. 

    Upon trying to wake him, they received no response, something that just made the situation even more worrying.

    Summary

    Caleb and Essek had both had a wonderful day exploring the fallen city of Aeor. They hadn't run into any danger and had actually managed to find a few interesting objects within the ruins. 

    It was just after they had finished dinner that Essek received the Sending message from Verin. His brother's voice sounded pained and stressed as he spoke. Clearly, something was wrong.

    Summary

    No. 10 - OOPS, I DID IT AGAIN

    hospital | flare-up | ice chips

    --

    "Taskhand, thank you for joining me." Deirta said, addressing Verin by his formal title. Verin had suspected this would be the case, as she only ever called Essek by his title now as well. It was unlikely that she would ever address either of them by their first names, unless she was introducing them to someone, ever again. They were nothing more than artifacts to be displayed when the correct moment presented itself. 

    Verin bowed politely. "Umavi Thelyss. Were is Essek?" He inquired, taking his seat at the table. 

    "The Shadowhand will not be joining us this night. He met with an unfortunate circumstance while on the way to the Bastion this morning."

    Summary

    No. 9 - RUMORS OF MY DEATH HAVE BEEN GREATLY EXAGGERATED

    presumed dead | (blind) rage | tears

    --

    Verin had frozen this morning at breakfast, his stunning indigo eyes suddenly filling with tears. Nyl had feared that it had something to do with his boyfriend's brother the instant the Sending message had come in. Nyl reached out, resting his hand atop Verin's gently. "Are you alright? What's happened?" 

    Verin closed his eyes, taking a deep breath, likely to steel himself for the words he now needed to say. 

    "Thank you for informing me, Caleb. I-" Verin's breath hitched as he tried to keep himself from crying. "I can't imagine how hard that must have been for you." 

    After he had replied to Caleb's message, Verin turned his attention to Nyl. "Essek was killed this morning. Someone from the Assembly. Caleb sounded- wrecked."

    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

    There were eight strangers in the foyer of his dead brother's towers and Verin Thelyss was slowly losing his patience.

     

     

     

    After the sudden "death" of Shadowhand Essek Thelyss, it is his brother Verin's job to empty out his towers. The Mighty Nein show up to help (and maybe steal a few things).

    OR: Verin is grieving, Essek just wants his stuff back, and the Mighty Nein are the Mighty Nein.

    Summary

    “Come now, Ess, you two have been so obvious.” Verin lounged on the couch in the Xhorhaus, seemingly totally unperturbed at having two powerful mages staring at him, which is not something many people can claim. “To be fair, you did do a decent job at hiding it at the start, but once I started looking, all the signs were right there. I know I’m not the most observant fellow, but did you really think I wouldn’t notice after being around you two for months?”

    Summary

    “You seek my nature. It is a lonely endeavor. Would you like to join me on this path?”
    “Yes.”

    After a thousand years, a divine champion awakes in a lightless cave above Port Damali with little memory to speak of and a beacon in his hands.

    Even as he struggles to piece the past together and process what he has lost while he slept, the future demands he answer for the crimes of his elders. It offers little in return, but perhaps there are fragments of possibility awaiting him.

    Summary

    It’s childish, Essek’s mother has told him once, to think of different worlds and different timelines instead of living in your own. Those worlds and timelines can be harvested for power, their potential can be reaped, but it’s childish, Essek’s mother has explained, to wonder if there is a world in which he is smarter, quicker, better. It’s even more childish, Essek has learned all on his own, to wonder if there is a world in which his family loves him more than they love their made-up god.

    So he is, of course, being a child. But perhaps there is a world in which he can have the Mighty Nein.

    (Or: five times Essek traveled to different timelines for the Mighty Nein.)

    Summary

    Verin has never been the pious sort himself – he respects Essek’s devotion to the Luxon, but it makes him uneasy. His elder brother is a wild thing, burning with such intensity that Verin fears it will consume him if he is not careful. And Essek is never careful, not when he has latched on to something with that single-minded determination of his.

    [Or: Essek has been chosen by the Luxon, but all Verin sees is his brother being corrupted by the light.]

    Summary

    Essek played an instrumental part in ending the war but played an even bigger part in starting it. How long can he keep his true involvement secret? Especially when the Assembly is at his heels.

    Summary

    Essek took a moment to polish the door placard reading "Professor Widogast - Dunamancy" before entering his office. He took a deep breath, inhaling the scent of old books, aging parchment, and mahogany. While he enjoyed the peaceful summer at home, he was greatly looking forward to some more liveliness. Soon the Academy's halls will be filled with laughter, chatter, and the magical energy only conjured by eager, bright minds.

    --

    Long after the battle with Lucien and a living city, Essek's life had calmed to a comfortable routine. He enjoyed teaching young minds at Soltryce, catching up with friends and their growing families, and caring for his garden and cats. He was content, he had a good life, despite nagging from his friends to get out more and meet someone.

    When a new transmutation professor starts at Soltryce, Essek is immediately reminded of his own cat-loving, book-hoarding, brilliant wizard. A bond forms and Essek begins to wonder if he's finally ready to move on and take the next step in his long life.

    Summary

    A compilation of moments involving one or both of the Thelyss brother. Some cute, some full of feels, some absolutely random and funny. In no chronological order.

    Drow children, shenanigans, growing up. Friendship and the Mighty Nein. Missing scenes and some slight canon divergent/what if scenes between the brothers. This story will (over time) have all of it.

    Summary

    Light dances beneath Essek’s skin, faint and flickering. It traces the pathways of his veins and arteries—usually invisible—in pulsing waves like the beating of another heart in time with his own. Soft, ethereal; cold and yet warm, now that he’s aware enough of its presence to focus on it. Like the light framing his eyes. The stars shimmering before him. Like something bigger than himself, twisted in and compounded many times over to frame itself in his flesh.

    (In another world, the Mighty Nein lose the battle against Lucien in Cognouza, falling under his control instead. Fortunately for them, however, the Luxon refuses to let this false god steal its favourite wizard.)
