    Summary

    It was insane. A waste of a spell that could lead to getting killed by a stranger, although he had no idea why someone from Tal’Dorei would have it out for him.

    On the other hand, wasn’t this why he began traveling to begin with? To be far away from all the forces trying to kill him or draw him back into politics, to gain some perspective by looking outside himself and his narrow-minded goals? Essek pressed a thumb against his mouth as he contemplated this, scanning the paper to a scrap of fabric pinned to the bottom of the map. It was striped purple and gold, a colorful addition to the parchment, and it took Essek a moment to understand why it was there. He could use it to teleport.

    Summary

    There is warmth in his gaze and the utmost patience. Essek had seen those eyes brighten when presented with a new puzzle to solve, narrow as he focuses on something, fondness when looking towards any other member of the Mighty Nein, and darken with determination when facing some trouble. He has also seen these eyes wide and empty, staring at nothing after having been torn through by the demonic wings of Lucien.

    Essek tells himself that the anxiety he feels in the pit of his stomach has everything to do with the cats and the cats alone.

    Summary

    “I’m home, darling. Finally. I cannot wait to see you,” he couldn’t keep the soft smile off his face at the thought. “How has your day been?”

    “Far better now, knowing that I get to come home to you, schatz. It’s been too long,” Caleb responded immediately, sounding a bit tired but happy, the words coming out in a Jester-like rush. “I have a bit of a surprise for-“ Essek grinned. Caleb almost never ran out of words. He cast Sending again.

    “Well then, I’m looking forward to it, ussta’chev. I have something for you as well.”

    Summary

    Caleb’s eyes carve into him, burnished blue and alive. Calm, curious. Maybe even concerned under those deeply drawn brows.

    “What is your anger for?”

    What is it for?

    What is it for, he has the gall to ask?

    It is for you, Caleb Widogast.

    This, Essek does not say.

    Summary

    ---

    Essek watches, transfixed by the tiefling, as he takes his hand to his lips for a brief kiss across his knuckles, the sharp talons kept away in an easy motion.

    “I don’t think I’ve ever met a drow properly before,” he says, relinquishing his hand and bowing with a flourish, “It’s a pleasure, Mr. Essek. I’m Molly, but I’m sure you’ve gathered that.”

    “The pleasure is all mine,” Essek replies, falling back on his manners even if he’s sure he looks bewildered. Most people from this side of the Ashkeeper Peaks don’t smile like that at the prospect of meeting someone from his folk.

    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

    It’s childish, Essek’s mother has told him once, to think of different worlds and different timelines instead of living in your own. Those worlds and timelines can be harvested for power, their potential can be reaped, but it’s childish, Essek’s mother has explained, to wonder if there is a world in which he is smarter, quicker, better. It’s even more childish, Essek has learned all on his own, to wonder if there is a world in which his family loves him more than they love their made-up god.

    So he is, of course, being a child. But perhaps there is a world in which he can have the Mighty Nein.

    (Or: five times Essek traveled to different timelines for the Mighty Nein.)

    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.
