    Summary

    A podfic of "Bury the Lead" by marywhale.

    Taako’s senior year at Neverwinter High could be going better. Faced with a choice between joining the school’s floundering newspaper or being expelled, he opts for a career in journalism.

    Lucretia, the paper’s editor, kind of wishes he'd gone the other way.

    Summary

    Everyone in New Elfington knew that, if you wanted something good to eat and you didn’t want to bust your wallet, you went to Tostaada’s Cafe and Bakery.

    It wasn’t a particularly fancy place—it sat on the first floor of the building that took up the corner of Broadway and Main, built out of old red bricks with windows that were permanently fogged up. The sign above the door was written in both faded Common and Elvish, the letters curling and the paint cracked.

    The food, however, was damn good.

     

    A story about finding your way home, and finding out that maybe home wasn't as far away as you previously thought.

    Summary

    Taako, Kravitz and Angus are happy together as a family. Very happy. But Kravitz is ready to get married and Taako isn’t, and Angus is finally starting to realize just how different he is from other kids his age. It’s been five years since the adoption, and the growing pains are setting in.

    (Sequel to Silk and Lace- can be read as a stand alone fic but it'll make more sense if you read the first book!)

    Summary

    Lucretia and Ren fall in love and stay in love.

    And yet Lucretia still writes to her.

    [If you feel particularly daring this can work as a standalone, but most of what is mentioned requires knowledge from'Are you There, Istus? It's me, Taako']

    Summary

    It’s over, and it feels like Taako is truly breathing for the first time in a decade. His knees ache, his back aches, his head hurts more than he can ever remember it hurting in his 214 years of life. But the air tastes fresh in his lungs despite the ash, and he’s looking at his sister’s face again (skeletal though it may be).

    It feels like he can’t do anything but stand, and breathe, and stare.

    Then he’s keeling over.

    taako had a HELL of a couple days, there. The fallout, and the rebuilding.

    “Your name is Lup. This is your son, Angus. You own a bakery, Flambé, in the town of Haverdale. You are happy. And you are safe.”
    Lup doesn’t know where she got those words, but they’ve always helped calm her down.

    “Your name is Lup, and you love your bakery. So much! So much that you never want to leave. You’re so satisfied with your life. You’ve never done anything different. You never WANTED to do anything different!”

    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.

    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!

    Summary

    Captain Davenport has a mission, assigned by Lord Artemis Sterling himself: bring order to the chaos across Faerun by any means necessary. Davenport, of course, decides the best course of action is to enlist a high school counselor and five of his ex-students. For some reason, they accept. He doesn't expect much from them, apart from a job completed in one sense or another.

    In retrospect, he probably should have lowered his standards from the get-go.

    (Can be read as a stand-alone or a prequel to "Are you There, Istus? It's Me, Taako")

    Summary

    After the events of the day of Story and Song, life is good for Angus McDonald. He works a well-payed job teaching at Taako's school (of witchcraft and misery), and though the students are sometimes older and rougher, he's been pushing through.

    Though, as much as he wouldn't like to admit it, Angus is stressed beyond belief. His anxiety has gotten worse, and he keeps having terrible nightmares that don't leave him with much sleep. He's tried to keep it to himself, and some days aren't are thankfully not stressful as others. For a twelve year old, it's a lot to worry about.

    Oh, and also the fact that he's a Silver Dragon might have something to do with it.

    Summary

    Taako dove for the small journal on the side table. He flipped through as many pages as possible as quickly as he could and found everything was in its place.
    Everything was in its place?
    “Dunk!” Taako practically yelled. This didn’t mean he was safe, but it was a good omen at least.

    Summary

    Taako steps onto the bottom step when he realizes that the light is on in the kitchen. He saunters in, expecting it to probably be Kravitz since he always came back super late, that sly reaper, to find his sister sitting at the round kitchen table with a cup in her hands. Taako hadn’t been this kind of alone with her in a long time. Not since their last day on the Starblaster. She turns around at his presence and gives him a small smirk.

    Summary

    The old joke in the necromancy department was that raising a family wasn't all that hard if you buried them close enough together. Barry Bluejeans had always thought it was a dumb joke. At least until the day he committed a death crime and got a son.

    Summary

    "We did it, sir," Angus whispers as he reaches the couch. He still can't quite get his brain to move past that. Fully processing the day's events is going to take time and probably several cork boards worth of notes connected by red yarn.

    Taako's mouth twitches upward in a tired smile. "We sure did, mijo." Fuzzily, Angus wonders what the word means, but he's too tired to devote much thought to it. Besides, it's barely a flicker in comparison to all the other new information he's received today.

    --

    5 times Angus wonders about Taako's new nickname for him + 1 time he finds out what it means.
