    Summary

    For better or worse, Caleb Widogast was a witcher. He didn’t know if his affinity for magic would have made him a sorcerer in another life; he only had this one. His former masters had taught him to channel his gifts towards one thing and one thing only, and he had spent the better part of his life trying to unlearn that lesson, trying to be a protector instead of a murderer—and sometimes being a protector only meant he got to choose who would live and who would die.
    Sometimes it was a hard choice. Other times, however, it was very easy.

    Or: a Shadowgast Witcher AU in three parts, with art by @Kurocyou.

    Summary

    Caleb searched around his room, his mind going a mile a minute, unable to control his screaming thoughts. The letter was swapped? That’s impossible. It was sealed! Jester’s letter was already sealed! How could that have happened? It had to have been some kind of magic… But who would do that?

    ---
     
    Caleb writes a confession letter to clear his conscience, only to have that letter be sent to Jester without his knowledge. It is a race against time as he tries to intercept it before she has a chance to read it.

    edit: updated the tags a bit. Will possibly add more later.

    Summary

    On the evening of the winter solstice, when Caleb Widogast is twenty-seven, a ritualistic energy storm knocks out all power to everything technological everywhere. However, in a strange sort of luck, enchanted devices and magical power sources remain active and operational. A self-made enchanter having already once before been under the control of government authorities, Caleb knows when to take his family and run; something that is only possible thanks to the generosity of his boss and mentor, Pumat Sol.

    Three years after the Blackout, and Caleb's stores of enchanting materials have finally run short. The people of Alfield have done Caleb a great kindness by protecting him from being conscripted, but now he must go out into the world in search of more. He takes with him his best friend, Veth Brenatto, and the pair of them strike out for the coast. Fate, however, has other ideas, and it brings them first to Trostenwald. This is where Caleb will not only meet the people who will help him carry out his mission, but also the tiefling who is destined to steal his heart.

    Summary

    The ringing note of a concert A is played by the oboe, echoing on its own in the space. It’s picked up by the wind section, followed rapidly by the brass, and the familiar feeling of an orchestra calibrating takes over Caleb. The tonal adjustments as each person brings their instrument into alignment sinks into him and something inside Caleb shifts in recognition as Essek leads the strings into their own tuning.

    It’s like something is waking up, like something unfurling and firing across long-unused paths of memory. His hands shake slightly, as he raises his bow and joins them, fingers fumbling against the pegs and fine tuners that give him control over his instrument.

    ----

    Essek Thelyss is a leading violinist, his spot as Shadowhand of the Rosohna Philharmonic Orchestra has been uncontested for over a decade. Caleb Widogast is a recent arrival to the city, convinced by his friends to audition for one of the vacant violinist positions.

    After starting off on the wrong foot, Caleb and Essek get to slowly know each other, discover what brings them joy, create while defying expectations, and find out that what they can produce together may just be better than anything they can do separately.

    Summary

    It always happened like this: Caleb would find himself overwhelmed and then his fingers would be feeling at his eyelids, plucking any growing hairs he found.

    It was weak. It was inexplicable, now that Trent had been taken care of and Lucien was gone and everything was better in the world. It was a secret Caleb could not share with his friends. He could not endure their confusion or their pity or their revulsion.

    Caleb was definitely okay. He had to be. He could not be weak.

    Summary

    For many, college is a chance to restart and make yourself the person you want to be. You can rebuild yourself and start anew. That was exactly what these 8 planned to do.

     

    AKA, I'm doing a college AU. Read it if you like angst, domestic fluff, found family, and more! I'll focus a lot on Caleb in this, but other characters have planned arcs and will get their time to shine.

    Summary

    Three years. Three years since they successfully faked his death and the Dynasty stopped looking. Three years of peace, of not having to leave Caleb and home behind.

    Summary

    After Aeor, Caleb buys a house in Rexxentrum with Beau and Yasha. For the first time in more than seventeen years, he has some semblance of stability. Caleb is not sure he's ready to handle it, but he's trying, and his friends are eager to see him live a good life, by force if necessary.

    And then Soltryce Academy approaches him with a job offer, which could give Caleb the chance to protect the next generation of wizards the way he had needed at their age. Caleb's goal of preventing what happened to him from happening to anyone else, however, takes a far more personal turn than even he could have anticipated.

    Summary

    “Vorrei che tu mi conosca,” dice.
    Sembra un segreto. Sembra come se la parte più oscura di lui fosse esposta; tutti i mesi e gli anni di macchia, di braccia fasciate e graffi sulle bende, di non amare, non amare niente oltre a un gatto immortale – tutto si sbroglia intorno a lui. Si sente nudo. Si sente come si è sentito la prima volta che Pumat Sol lo ha ripulito con la magia.
    “Trovo che… vorrei che tu mi conosca,” dice, di nuovo.

    Summary

    Caleb wakes up on Rumblecusp with no memories of who he is or how he got there. The people around him seem to care for him greatly, and he wants to do his best to help them, even when they fail to return his memories with their divine magic.

    Many things are confusing, but none more so than what appears to be his personal journal, written in a cipher he can no longer remember. Perhaps the handsome drow his friends brought him to in Rosohna may be of help.

    Summary

    — Henry David Thoreau

    Summary

    “I would like you to know me,” Caleb says.

    It feels like a secret. Like the darkest part of him cracked open; all his months and years of hiding, of wrapping his arms and scratching the bindings, of not loving, not loving anything but an unkillable cat — it’s unraveling around him. He feels naked. He feels the way he did the first time Pumat Sol spelled him clean.

    “I find that — I would like you to know me,” he says, again.

    Summary

    After Caleb's plan for the T-doc is changed, there are some old demons to face, and feelings to deal with.

    -----------------------------------

    Liam said Essek and Caleb would eventually become romantically involved - once they worked out their own shit. And I decided to run with it.

    Also, Caleb is full of angst and trauma and I just couldn't leave that alone.

    Summary

    Nestled in some delicate tissue paper is a set of lace lingerie in red. It’s mostly sheer, the bottoms are held together at the hips by thin straps, and the brassiere is strapless. Caleb doesn’t have any lingerie at all, and his skin goes hot knowing both Essek and Fjord likely imagined him in this.

    “Wear it tonight.” Fjord’s voice warms his ear.

    “You made plans?” Caleb murmurs.

    Essek’s hand rests on Caleb’s elbow. “Not exactly, but we discussed what we wanted. Fjord had an idea, and … I went and picked this up.”

    “You’ll run the show tonight, though,” Fjord puts in.

    “We may have come up with the idea to make love to you while you’re wearing this, but we want you in charge.” Essek’s lips press to a spot behind Caleb’s ear; a simple and brief gesture, but one that leaves a burning print on Caleb’s skin.
