    Summary

    Taako always felt like he was part of a whole, and the other piece was missing. He chalked it up to the depression and didn’t stop to think about it. That was, until he became part of a secret organization to save the world, and remembered more than he should’ve.

    Now he just had to undermine Lucretia (And mess with her, of course), find Barry, find Lup, and avoid suspicion from Magnus and Merle. All the while dealing with faulty memories.

    Shouldn’t be too difficult, right?

    Summary

    Taako has always hated his birthday, he's not sure why. The attention should feed him, he deserves it after all. It's just that something is missing, something is always missing and it makes facing the day feel impossible.

    Summary

    "You're more than your ability to wield a dope-ass axe, my dude. Honestly, I kind of like you more this way. The new threads? Iconic."

    Taako tries to make a persuasion check against a Magnnequin on the team's last trip to Fantasy Costco, where all your dreams come true (got a deal for you!).

    Summary

    I decided instead of uploading the oneshots I'm going to be writing all separately, I'd just post them all in this!

    There will be a lot of hurt/comfort and fluff, some angst. ...Lots of Taaco twins because I love those two so much, but I'll be writing other characters too.

    Requests are open, so stop by my inbox here or at lizzysong on Tumblr!

    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.”

    In which Taako is a massive idiot and decides that who needs sleep when you can be angsty instead and not go to your friends for help, which doesnt quite pay off in the end, and he ends up in their arms after all. (quite literally)

    Summary

    Being a guardian angel was by no means a fun job. Sometimes you got assigned one person their entire life, and those jobs were easy. Taako literally just got here, doesn't remember anything, and has been assigned three people to look after.

    Something relics, something else with Merle and Lucretia acting weird, but Taako isn't gonna even try to wonder what their deal is. He's got a job to do, after all.

    The Guardian Angel AU no one asked for, but I'm still going to deliver.

    Summary

    The noise was outside. If he looked for more than two seconds he could probably find a cricket. It was not a sound in his mind. It was quiet and calm. It wasn’t all-encompassing and inescapable, syncing to his heartbeat and overriding every instinct in him screaming to just stop, stay still, don’t unbuckle that, stop, stop, st-

    Summary

    Five times Taako manages to get a hug from one of his friends without having to actually admit that he wants a hug, and one time he flat out cops to it.

    1. Taako hates being cold and wet. He's both, thanks to an inconvenient river. Magnus is a human furnace, and thus it begins.
    2. Waking up feeling inexplicably lonely, Taako tries to goad Magnus into bickering with him in a bid for some company. He gets the company, at least.
    3. Angus is almost hit by a rogue cart, Taako deals with being idolized and trusted by a kid he doesn't think he deserves the faith of.
    4. During a fight, Taako almost dies, and Merle gets to practice his healing skills.
    5. Magnus has a nightmare, Merle nearly loses Magnus after a fight, and Taako finds himself on the other side of things.
    + 1. Merle casts Zone of Truth, Magnus is a good friend, and Taako makes a confession.

    Summary

    There’s something in her voice when she says it—maybe disappointment, but Taako can’t quite place it. She feels bad, probably. Thinking about their old crewmate alone in her office on Candlenights Eve—well, not alone. He overheard Magnus telling Lup about the dog he gave her a few weeks ago, how it would be good for her to have one she wasn’t alone so often. But mostly alone. Not a part of the family they’d built.

     

     

    Except, that wasn’t really it, was it? Magnus brought her a puppy, he had seen Avi take a present from Lup and Barry back with him, probably for her. He’d gone shopping with Merle a few weeks ago and noticed him buying the stuff to make the tea she’d always liked back on the Starblaster. Hell, Avi, Carey, and Killian still worked for/with her. He knows he’s the problem, the one unwilling to mend the broken link between them. He knows. But he’s not willing to deal with that yet.

    Summary

    The gang tries to have a family dinner post-Story and Song.

    It goes about as well as you'd think.

    Featuring a very confused Kravitz, Lup and Magnus both rushing in, Ango being the best, and that classic Adventure Zone mixture of humor and angst.

    Summary

    “Hey, Taako? One more question?”

    Taako groaned. “About to sleep here, Mags, but fine. Shoot.”

    “Does Merle know you’re dating the guy who cut off his arm?”

    Taako’s eyes snapped open in alarm. Shit. “I mean… technically you cut off his arm, homie.”

    “Yeah, and you cheered me on while it happened—fine. Lemme fix my question. Does Merle know you’re dating the guy that tried to kill him and instead caused the loss of his arm in the process?”

    “…No. No he doesn’t."
