    Summary

    Caleb’s blush faded, and any trace of slump disappeared. “A couple of weeks ago I sent Yussa a letter like yours. When I didn’t get a response, Jester messaged him. What that didn’t get a response, I headed over there myself, only to find that Yussa isn’t taking any audiences. I believe he may be in some trouble.”
    “So? He is a wizard of some capabilities.”
    Caleb winced. “Ja, but Yussa is also the one who’s keeping watch of Halas’s imprisonment. He also has the Happy Fun Ball, sorry, the Archmage Bane. Either of them would be a problem, but Yussa has both and has already shown that he doesn’t make the best decisions with these items.”

    Otherwise known as Essek is a disaster gay, just really good at hiding it, Yussa is trying so hard not to get attached to all the mortals, Halas is eternally screaming in his ruby, and there is probably a plot

    Summary

    A magical mishap involving Halas' spells turns Essek into a twelve year old - or drags a twelve year old Essek from another timeline? that's unclear - with the Mighty Nein unable to stop it. (It's their fault. Fully and utterly.)

    It's a race to turn Essek back into his real self before the Cerberus Assembly find out about his vulnerable state and take him out - or before Beau shoves him into a locker.

    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

    They haven’t seen each other in months. This is the only reason that Essek allows himself to be dragged to the bright, humid pit of Nicodranas in the middle of summer, for a celebration that he has no interest in partaking in.

    That, and because Jester asked him so nicely in her message.

    Summary

    “Oh. Shit,” The goblin says, staring at him.
    “Oh shit?” Another voice says, and a figure appears behind the goblin. Another woman, human this time. “Oh shit.” She repeats after seeing him.
    “What is it?” Another voice asks, but no one else appears in the doorway this time.
    “There’s a drow in the carriage.” There is a pause, then another voice speaks up.
    “We don’t do human cargo.” Another pause. “Drow cargo.”

    Summary

    There's something in Caleb's dreams. It wants him to know that he's not alone. It wants him to know that he'll never be alone again.

    Elves don't dream, so all Essek can do is watch.

    Summary

    A fine dusting of chalk and charcoal coated his hands and chest from countless attempts to correct his blasted diagrams, a layer of grime and dried sweat sitting heavily on his skin. He ran shaking fingers over the bead of force hidden amongst his earrings and the nightshade capsule sewn into his shirt collar. The elven chain shirt sandwiched between his outer and undershirt rattled softly as he moved.
    Resigning himself to another restless night, he stared up at the deep maroon canopy overhead.

    Essek dreamt of the Nein.

     

    AKA Essek tugs on the strings of fate a little too hard and gives both himself and the Nein a bit of perspective as a result.

    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.

    Summary

    Des millions de réalités possibles, seulement une est autorisée à prendre forme tandis que les autres sont rejetées et dissoutes.
    Essek se demandait constamment pourquoi c'était la plus improbable qui avait été choisie.

    Summary

    Essek took a moment to polish the door placard reading "Professor Widogast - Dunamancy" before entering his office. He took a deep breath, inhaling the scent of old books, aging parchment, and mahogany. While he enjoyed the peaceful summer at home, he was greatly looking forward to some more liveliness. Soon the Academy's halls will be filled with laughter, chatter, and the magical energy only conjured by eager, bright minds.

    --

    Long after the battle with Lucien and a living city, Essek's life had calmed to a comfortable routine. He enjoyed teaching young minds at Soltryce, catching up with friends and their growing families, and caring for his garden and cats. He was content, he had a good life, despite nagging from his friends to get out more and meet someone.

    When a new transmutation professor starts at Soltryce, Essek is immediately reminded of his own cat-loving, book-hoarding, brilliant wizard. A bond forms and Essek begins to wonder if he's finally ready to move on and take the next step in his long life.

    Summary

    A compilation of moments involving one or both of the Thelyss brother. Some cute, some full of feels, some absolutely random and funny. In no chronological order.

    Drow children, shenanigans, growing up. Friendship and the Mighty Nein. Missing scenes and some slight canon divergent/what if scenes between the brothers. This story will (over time) have all of it.

    Summary

    “Are you homesick?” Caduceus cannot see much of Essek’s face in the dark, but he catches the glint of a silver eye turned his way. “I get homesick. Got sick of home, but I still get homesick.”
     

    Essek goes into the dark; the dark gets into his head.

    Summary

    Light dances beneath Essek’s skin, faint and flickering. It traces the pathways of his veins and arteries—usually invisible—in pulsing waves like the beating of another heart in time with his own. Soft, ethereal; cold and yet warm, now that he’s aware enough of its presence to focus on it. Like the light framing his eyes. The stars shimmering before him. Like something bigger than himself, twisted in and compounded many times over to frame itself in his flesh.

    (In another world, the Mighty Nein lose the battle against Lucien in Cognouza, falling under his control instead. Fortunately for them, however, the Luxon refuses to let this false god steal its favourite wizard.)

    Summary

    “Jester, I really don't know of a kinder way to say this,” Caleb said.  “But he is, at this moment, a complete idiot.  That’s what Feeblemind does.  A two-year-old child has more reasoning than him right now.”

    Jester hummed and thought that over.  Then she grinned when the obvious solution came to her.  “So you’re saying we can’t reason with him… but what if we could trick him into taking a bath?”

    “…I don’t know that I like where this is going,” Caleb said, sounding very glum.

    *

    Or, the Mighty Nein find more than a Beacon in the sewers of Zadash. They find a drow wizard and prisoner of war - mute, amnesiac and terrified - and they take him in as one of their own.
