    Summary

    When Caleb makes the decision to give himself up to Trent, to ensure that the rest of the Mighty Nein aren’t captured and can defeat Lucien unencumbered, it takes the Mighty Nein on an unexpected journey of torture, cruelty, childhood love, and a twist no one saw coming. No one, but a single drow. An AU in which Essek and Bren knew one another long before the Nein came into the picture.

    Summary

    Faerie Princess Genevieve of Nicodrania is doing her best to behave like a grown up princess. Being stuffy and responsible isn’t much fun, but at least people aren’t getting annoyed with her so much.
    But then she finds a faerie unconscious and bleeding in the forest. A faerie that looks a lot like those that live in the dangerous kingdom of Empyria.
    And everything changes.

    Summary

    “I spent some time with Keyleth again, when I had time. She told me about the raven that visits her every day. How it’s come to be both a reminder and a comfort. Company. And I thought… perhaps…” he trailed off, trying to keep his breathing from shaking, as he began to take out the components for the ritual. “Perhaps something similar could help me…”

    Summary

    Floor nine of the Sehanine Building at Rexxentrum Academy is where the school houses anyone they don't quite know what to do with. Anyone who marked down anything but "male" or "female" on their surveys, anyone who has a tumultuous past, anyone they might want to keep an eye on. Caleb and Molly start out a tenuous friendship as neighbors on floor nine, neither aware of the colorful dreams the other shares with them each night.

    But it's probably just a coincidence that Caleb dreams of a purple haired, horned creature that looks a lot like Mollymauk. And that Molly dreams of a boy consumed by flames. Right?

    Summary

    No. 3 - STICKS AND STONES MAY BREAK MY BONES BUT…

    taunting | insults | “Who did this to you?”

    --

    The cat meowed pathetically in response, still nuzzling Essek's leg. Essek carefully ran his hands over the cat's body, trying to assess what was bothering him. When he gently touched the area around Frumpkin's ribs, the cat bit him. Hard. Okay, that was clearly where the pain was coming from then. 

    "Okay, okay. I'm sorry." Essek murmured, petting the cat in what he assumed to be a soothing manner. "Let's get you back to Caleb, hmm? Who did this to you?" Essek asked, once again acting as if the cat could answer him.

    Summary

    The elevator dings and they both step out onto the ninth floor. Essek lets Widogast take the lead and follows him down the hallway, taking note of the twists and turns to follow them back on his own later if need be. Widogast pulls his key out from his pocket, fumbling with the card reader a few times before the light on it flashes green.

    “Well, here we are,” he says, holding the door open with a smile.

    Essek inclines his head politely and steps inside of what is to be their shared space for the duration of the conference. The room is fairly well furnished, for what he’d been able to afford. There’s a small kitchenette area with a microwave, tiny fridge and freezer, and coffee maker, as well as two plush chairs set in front of a glass coffee table. The curtains are currently pulled back, revealing the city of Uthodurn beneath them, snow sparkling in the setting sun. There’s even a modestly sized desk along one wall, next to most of Essek’s belongings that had been sent ahead—his wheelchair is folded up to rest against the chest of drawers, and his other two bags are sitting on the floor next to it.

    And, as becomes painfully obviously once his gaze pans farther back, there’s only one bed in the room.

    Summary

    Essek loves the tower.
    Of course, he loves the tower. How could he not? He loves waking up not dead after a fight that killed him. He loves being warm in the freezing north, surrounded by those he called friends. He loves magic. He loves-
    He loves what Caleb does with magic, putting such a personal touch on everything. He was floored by the beautiful stained glass windows, representing every school of magic, including his own. The incredible library full of books that man had read over his years and committed to memory. He cannot begin to express what he feels about the room custom made for him.
    The cats, though.
    He is not sure how he feels about the cats.

    or, essek was lucky enough to get through the fight at aeor after being revived. the battle to win back the nein's trust will be harder.

    Summary

    “Jester, I really don't know of a kinder way to say this,” Caleb said.  “But he is, at this moment, a complete idiot.  That’s what Feeblemind does.  A two-year-old child has more reasoning than him right now.”

    Jester hummed and thought that over.  Then she grinned when the obvious solution came to her.  “So you’re saying we can’t reason with him… but what if we could trick him into taking a bath?”

    “…I don’t know that I like where this is going,” Caleb said, sounding very glum.

    Or, the Mighty Nein find more than a Beacon in the sewers of Zadash. They find a drow wizard and prisoner of war - mute, amnesiac and terrified - and they take him in as one of their own.

    Summary

    Essek was not an idiot. Quite the opposite, actually. Maybe Essek was so smart that there's an integer overflow - you know, when there's not enough space allocated in the mechanical brains of those fancy aeorian automatons, and a very high number flips back to the value of negative infinity. That must be what had happened in Essek's non-mechanical brain on this occasion. Yes, that absolutely was the only reason.
    That and the fact that Essek had absolutely no idea how these creatures worked, these demons drawn straight from the abyss to torture people. Or as Caleb calls them: cats.
    So it's no wonder that when an orange tabby showed up on their doorstep, five years after the events of Cognouza, Essek smiled and said: "We should call him Frumpkin II." And Caleb stared at him like he'd just grown a second head, opened his mouth, closed it again, blinked, shook his head and said "Yes, Liebling, we should call him Frumpkin."
    Yes, in retrospect he should have smelled a rat, but Caleb sometimes was just like that.

    ***

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a wizard in possession of a full spellbook, must be in want of an immortal cat.
