    Summary

    It started with a letter.

    Essek had no attendance in his towers, no housekeepers or cooks, no cleaners or maids. Everything he couldn't take care of himself, he found a way to handle with a spell. So there was no easy answer for how the folded piece of cream colored paper ended up on top of his spotless desk in the study of his well secured home.

    “To Essek Thelyss,” it read, in his own looping handwriting.

    Five years after he was supposed to steal the beacons, Essek wakes with the memories of a different timeline in his head.

    Summary

    Aeor is for lovers. And Wild Magic. Combine the two plus two squishy wizards pining for each other and you have the best romance trope in existence.

    Consists of short, unrelated chapters, each centered around a different Wild Magic effect (plus some of my own). There will be mild slow burn romance through most of the chapters and they are assumed to be chronological, though can be read in any order.

    Summary

    Essek knows about soulmates and soulmarks. He knows they can be platonic and/or romantic.

    But he never knew that he could have one.

    Or more than that.

    Eight people who call themselves Nein are going to change that.

    Summary

    Alors qu'il explore Aeor en compagnie des Mighty Nein, Essek s'interroge encore sur ce qu'il fait là et le lien qui l'unit à ce groupe si étrange. Malgré sa peur, il sait qu'il est incapable de ne pas les suivre jusqu'au bout.

    Summary

    At last TravelerCon has arrived! Or more like the Mighty Nein have been thrown bodily upon the shores of TravelerCon by some mysterious force.

    And Essek finds himself dragged along with them.

    Considering how his last conversation with the whole group went, he is *anxious* to say the least.

    (Part of a series, but can be read as a standalone if you consider Essek/Caleb already in-progress as a developing relationship.)

    Summary

    This is a great honor, Essek reminds himself, trying not to recoil as fingers run through his hair, working through the tangles. A braid is made of three strands, symbolizing the inextricable bond between the soul, the den, and the Luxon. A recognition of an achievement by the drow who bears it. With each braid, the soul is bound ever closer to its den and to the Luxon.

    It is a lesson Essek learned long ago, but one he is never permitted to forget.

    [Or: the story of why the Shadowhand wears his hair cropped short.]

    Summary

    “No more children on the pyre.”

    Almost six centuries after Cognouza, when faced with the decision to either care for a small child or leave her to fate, Essek’s choice is simple, really.

    Essek has no idea what he’s doing. All that he knows is he won’t abandon Liesel Maier.

    But dear gods, he misses The Mighty Nein.

    At the very least, Jester would know what to do.

    ***

    Or: Essek adopts a small Zemnian sorcerer and is summarily adopted by a group of fledgling adventurers with an uncanny ability to make his chest squeeze with how they remind him of friends long since lost to him.

    Summary

    Unconnected short stories, in which Essek's fate is bound with the fey.

    1. Don't join their dances. You will never leave.
    2. Don't make deals — or do, at your own peril.
    3. Don't admire a newborn child. They will want it, and never give it back.
    4. Don't try to save the mortals under their thrall, unless you are prepared to pay for it.

    Summary

    Essek has seen the way Jester watches him. Watches him do magic, more precisely. He scatters gravitational pull like sand and captures time in a goblet and bites into a blood-smeared apple to ward against poison. All the while, Jester stares, violet eyes a-glimmer, hungry and hopeful in a way he can honestly understand.

    Even so: “Teach me,” she begs him, again and again.

    And each time: “No,” he says, and brushes the little princess away.

    Summary

    Essek was bored, in his defense. His and Caleb’s secondary spellbook was right there, and he knew Polymorph was in it.

    When Essek and Caleb have sex this time, it is unplanned (for Essek at least), and the wizards are eager to experiment with new spells and the spell just happens to use concentration…

    Summary

    Essek Thelyss knew he would outlive the Nein. He knew this as he got word of Fjord’s death. He knew this when he got the call the Professor Widogast had suffered a heart affliction and was discovered too late for the clerics to save him.

    He knows this as he stands before their graves, flowers in hand, and tears in his eyes.

    CW/TW: major talk of death and sadness, if you hadn’t gotten that already.

    Summary

    Caleb Widogast's desk in his office at the Academy is good for more than paperwork and sometimes a nice nap. It is a convenient sitting height and Essek Thelyss takes full advantage of that (with help from the lewd mind of Jester Lavorre).

    a.k.a Essek wears lingerie and Caleb fucks him on his own desk.
