    Summary

    Waking up to a purple sky, burnt partially orange from the morning suns was a common occurrence in Taako's lifetime. What makes this morning unusual is that this happened after their 100 cycle journey in the other fucking planar direction.

    Taako's quite proud of himself to only have panicked a little.

    Summary

    Camp Faerun isn't a bad camp, per se, but things do tend to go wild on a regular basis. "Wild" doesn't mean that the campers sneak out of the unit to steal ice cream from the dining hall (they do that, but that's not wild. That's pretty standard). "Wild" means that Brian defects to the snotty brat camp across the lake. "Wild" means that Lup and Aubrey become friends and nearly burn down half the forest. "Wild" also means that there's an oil baron trying to buy out the camp, and he's gauging the best way to do that by trying to shut it down via sabatoge, but also taking the weird plantfucking nature specialist on dates? For some reason?
    If you're a new camper here for a relaxing summer, then I can almost guarantee that, despite Duck Newton and Davenport's best efforts, Taako, Lup, Magnus, and Aubrey will get you across the lake in the fastest way possible (they're gonna fire you out of a catapult). So, if you just accept your fate, don't buy the dehydrated water from the camp store, and avoid getting knifed by Duck's weirdo psychopath cousin, then you'll (probably) survive the summer!

    Summary

    Taako sacrificed himself for his sister and her best friend. He was ready for that to be the end of his story, just one big, noble gesture, and kick it in the ether while his sister went on to save the world. With all the bullshit he's been through just to get to this point, he's pretty sure he's earned it.

    But when he wakes up back in the still frozen future, with nobody around but That Guy Who Tried to Kill Him (But Also Used to Be a Close Friend) he decides yeah? Okay? Fuck this.

    He's not going to live forever, hell, he probably won't live more than a few hours before the future collapses in on itself, but if he can buy Lup and Barry enough time to go be heroes and save the world...then yeah. He'll take on a rampaging goddess single-handed, and if That Guy decides to tag along...maybe Taako can work with him just long enough for his efforts to matter.

    Summary

    Myrensi Mol'diira has been told every single day of her life to be grateful, to praise Lolth for making her be born in Relonar instead of the highest cities of the Underdark. There, the Priestesses tell her, marauding villains come from the surface to steal away babies in the night. There are people who know how to cast Sunlight. There is everything that Myrensi is not allowed, is everything that Myrensi will never become.
    ---
    Ren stumbles out of the Underdark and into the hearts of Refuge's citizens. She lives and dies almost four thousand times. And with just the slightest tug on a thread of Fate, she becomes so much more than she ever thought she would.

    Summary

    Taako and Kravitz are getting married. Except, well, there’s a little bit of a wrinkle. A tiny hiccup. The planar system’s smallest monkey wrench.

    The thing is, the whole “alive/dead” thing is kind of a problem vis a vis ancient death rules. To beat the system, the Raven Queen’s got a fetch quest that’s a little more complicated than your usual wedding “something old, something blue” and a little more urgent than your standard save the date. Good thing Tres Horny Boys have a whole year of relevant job experience in finding things, because Taako, and everyone else for that matter, has his work cut out for him well before any wedding cake’s getting cut.

    Turns out getting married is a little more complicated when your relationship is less “Til Death Do Us Part” and more “At Death Do We Start.”

    Summary

    The Gods of Faerun have gone missing. No one knows where they've gone or what could have taken them away. But without them to maintain the delicate balance of order and chaos, life and death and fate itself, it won't be long before the world begins to come apart.

    It's time for the Seven Birds, emissaries of the gods themselves, to save the world again.

    (Set in the Emissary Davenport series, but this story can be read on its own.)

    Summary

    It wasn’t called the “ten years and a slap on the wrist” stockade. The Eternal Stockade housed criminals of death for well… eternity, and in one lich’s opinion eternity was too long to wait.

    There ain't no grave can keep these bodies down, much as Kravitz and the other reapers may try. Once someone they care about is pulled into this battle of necromancy and cheating death, they resolve to reassert death as permanent.

    And in some cases, painful.

    Summary

    They had spent the last five years collecting every single blue blood of comparable age and introducing them to Kravitz. And no matter the pleasant conversations, no matter the promises that nothing could phase them- everyone, without fail, had run away. Away from him, away from his face, away from his curse and its implicit leaden responsibility.
    Kravitz had never been one for hope- and after over five years of fruitless searching, he had become callous to it. He had to be, it was self preservation at this point. But now, seeing Justin perched aloofly on the arm of the couch, Kravitz felt something horrifyingly close to hope burning in the back of his throat.
    He swallowed it as quickly as he could.
    He knew he wasn't one meant for a fairytale ending.

    Summary

    Soulmate!AU where, if your soulmate is hurt or otherwise marks their skin, a corresponding mark appears on your skin in the same place.

    Kravitz and Taako aren't soulmates. But they love each other no matter what fate says. They live together and make jokes about the marks that appear on each other's skin.

    Until one day the marks get a little more than ominous. Something is obviously wrong with Taako's soulmate but he doesn't see why that's his problem. He doesn't want to do anything about someone he doesn't care about, but the universe bound them together for a reason.

    Summary

    Raven had always thought of Kravitz as a loner.
    As someone who doesn't necessarily enjoy, or needs, the company of others.

    When she asked him to go out more- to go explore the world and to meet new people, she had meant going to bars, joining clubs, performing in little cafes. Meeting The One.
    But at least he was talking to people again, even if it was through the safety of a phone screen.

    or

    Kravitz meets a very pretty elf on tinder.

    Summary

    Fate works in odd ways. Fate takes away those we love, breaks us, makes us question everything. Yet it also brings back those we lost, helps us come into who we are, and makes us thankful for the life we have.

    Welcome to IPRE Uni, a rather large and welcoming college, home to many bright students, and these upcoming years, home to the making of a rather large family.

    Ups and downs, heartbreaks and revelations, homes and families. We have it all.

    Summary

    Taako likes to think that meeting a goddess in the Girl’s Toy section of a Fantasy Wal-Mart was where his life got… well, got really fuckin weird. Sure, his sister and her husband turned into liches a while back but that's just something that happens sometimes, and he just got fired from the Library of Arcane History for reasons he can't legally disclose to anyone in public, but still. It's not Goddess on a trike type of weird. But hey, Istus gives him sick bling, so what's he gonna do? Turn her down? Have you even met him?

    Kravitz has long since abandoned the notion that his life was ever normal since, for as long as he can remember, he's been following a raven with golden eyes. Of course, there's also that time he knows for a fact he died, but something fucked up along the way because he's still alive and the necromancers that pulled out his heart aren't. Also, what happened to his heart?

    It's the Adventure Zone!
