    Summary

    “If this is a crazy Helioic cult, wouldn’t it have been better to find some nice lady spy to come with you? Or literally any one of our female friends?”

    “Adaine’s too recognizable, Fig’s taken, and Kristen has a mullet.” Riz ticks them off on his fingers. “Besides, having a male partner makes me an outsider. It gives them something to sink their teeth into.”

    “I see,” Fabian says with a grin, “I’m bait.”

    “You’re not bait.”

    “I’m set dressing,” Fabian amends, taking another slice of pizza. “I’m honored.”

    [OR Riz is tasked with taking down a cult from the inside, and Fabian is along for the ride.]

    Summary

    Adaine Abernant was broken.

    I mean, that was the only explanation wasn’t it? That was the only reason she felt so empty, so alone. She had a family, a family which never actually did anything bad to her. But still, she felt like she had no one.

    Figueroth formerly Faeth was a monster.

    She was reminded of that every time her Dad looked at her with something bordering on hatred, or when her mom looked at her with guilt, or when her friends pointed and whispered behind her back, since her horns came in it felt like she had no one.

    When Fig finds a message in a bottle which Adaine had thrown from the shore of Fallinel perhaps they both find someone.

    Summary

    Though Cathilda tries her best to keep the peace, sometimes Hallariel, basking in her new sobriety, focuses too much on her son and the likely death he is to face if he isn't at the same level of excellence and fearsomeness as his father, despite being just a child. Fabian is constantly caught between wanting to make his parents proud and just wanting to be a normal sixteen-year-old, and the Bad Kids are going to do whatever it takes to help their best friend achieve both these goals.

    Summary

    Fabian watched him like he watched the ships sail in and out of the harbour like he was something he would always return to. On the days that Fabian watched ships, Riz watched Fabian. They’d visit the graveyard and their fathers and the beach. They’d sit in the sun and breathe in the salty air and remind each other of exactly whose legacy they were fulfilling. Then remind each other that there was also no legacy except their own.

    Summary

    “It’s got to be a prank,” Fabian said. “You understand that, right?”

    It was unusual, sure, Riz could concede to that point. He wasn’t a total dumbass. Still, it would be a valuable opportunity to gather information on the inner workings of the college’s most popular and elite social group, which is what he tried to explain to Fabian.

    “That,” Fabian said, wafting his hand in Riz’s direction, “is why I know this is a prank. Cool people don’t say shit like that.”

    --

    or: Riz goes to a college party, and shenanigans ensue.

    Summary

    “I don’t know which one is which!” The wizard looked to be in the midst of a panic attack as the barbarian half-orc hacked at power cords to try and save both Penny and Riz - but he would be too little too late.

    “Just pick one, Adaine! We believe in you!” A wink from the tiefling had Adaine nodding, confidence flowing through her. Bardic inspiration, Penny assumed.

    “Goodbye, Riz.” Penny waved, watching the Mage Hand spell cover Adaine’s own palm in a soft blue light. She must have figured it out - Riz would be safe soon.

    “No, Penny! PENNY!” Riz shook, the palimpsest being knocked around just a bit as his fists continued digging into shards of crystal-

    -and Penny Luckstone flew into Adaine’s open palm.

    Summary

    Riz was small and carried business cards. He wore suits to school and tugged around a briefcase engraved with the initials of a nickname that had been given to him by someone who’d just thrown him in a trashcan. But for all that, he knew his friends and he knew that Kristen’s need to get higher, to see the world from above the rest of them, was most effective when there was someone to tug her back down again when she was finished.

    “Whenever you die, it feels like there’s something in the universe that breaks,” he said, just loud enough for her to hear. Her grip on his shoulder tightened ever so slightly. “Like there was something important that exploded a few hundred years too soon.”

    Summary

    Riz is doing fine. He's doing great actually! Maybe he's increasingly having episodes where everything gets intangible and reality just slips through his fingers like sand - but that doesn't mean anything!

    He just needs more coffee, probably.

    Summary

    “Try not to die on the first day of school, Riz”, she said and there was sincerity in her voice.

    As sad as it sounded, however, mean she was, Aelwyn Abernant was the closest thing he had for a friend the last few years. They were just two teenagers, not so subtly manipulated by forces beyond their control. It helped to be honest and open with someone, even if that someone was a stuck up, rich, high elf.

    Riz would have still killed her if Kalina ordered him to, but he’d like to think that he’d hesitate a bit.
    ~
    or, a freshman year's retelling, where Riz is balancing being Kalina's spy, working towards bringing an evil dragon back to power and being tasked protecting a bunch of idiots who can't jump over tables. Somehow, the power of friendship is involved?

    Summary

    Aelwyn Abernant is not okay.
    Most people wouldn't be after everything she's gone through- years of child abuse, months of torture, and being stuck under the thumb of an evil cat and her own parents. But she's getting through it the best she can. And if the best she can do is drink too much and stay out too late and try and numb the pain, then isn't that good enough?

    No, it isn't. After a night out filled with dancing and gorgeous DJs and private detectives named Riz Gukgak and actually feeling something again, Aelwyn knows that something is wrong. Luckily for her, school is starting back up, and she happens to be the ward of the best guidance counselor in Elmville, who would be happy to help Aelwyn get her diploma so she can go off to University.

    But for some reason, the Bad Kids can never seem to get through a year without a mystery to solve and a mission to complete. And for some reason, Aelwyn can never seem to get away from the Bad Kids.

    Aelwyn Abernant is not okay.
    But hopefully, someday, she will be.

    Summary

    Kristen stands up, brushing off her denim shorts. "Anyway, I need to talk to you." Her muddy green eyes dart off his face for a second. "I, uh."

    Gorgug frowns. "Are you okay? Are you hurt?"

    "No, no! I just. Should I break up with Tracker?"

    Summary

    "Well, is that why you called me? To talk about your dad?"

    "Well, uh." Fabian sounds unsure of himself for the first time since Riz met him. "Yes, actually. I was wondering if you'd visit Papa's grave with me."

    Summary

    "I- Cathilda said that you-” Riz presses his lips together. “I mean, my dad’s also- dead. If you ever wanted to. You know. Talk about it.”

    Things are quiet without the rumble of the engine. Fabian feels like he’s under a microscope from it, wishing desperately that he could pull the blankets over his head and feeling shame from that too. Seacasters don’t hide themselves away. 

    “I absolutely do not,” says Fabian. “I am- I don’t need to talk about this.”

     

    Fabian at the end of his no good terrible very bad day.
