    Summary

    “You will be my undoing Essek Thelyss,” He whispered into the space between them.

     

    “You were mine, Caleb Widowgast.”

     

     

    A series of one-shots dotted along the timeline of Caleb and Essek's relationship after the finale. In somewhat of a timeline order, mostly fluff.

    Summary

    If there's one thing the Mighty Nein and Vox Machina like almost as much as getting into fights, it's watching their friends get into fights.

    Summary

    Essek had known that fighting alongside the Mighty Nein would be frightening. This was a fact he had accepted before he had ever formally agreed to join them in their fight against the Tomb Takers. He hadn't, however, considered the possibility of losing any of his friends along the way. He should have. He was brilliant- a prodigy of dunamancy. The possibility should have at least crossed his mind.
    But for whatever reason, it hadn't. Now, as Caleb lay gravely wounded and barely conscious in his arms, Essek learned what the true meaning of terror was.

    Summary

    “Time, it takes time, not days or weeks or years. Time.”

    Caleb Widogast was right, though to be precise it takes 100 consecutive days of inscribing a teleportation circle in the same place to make it permanent.

    Summary

    Essek goes home, and there is no one waiting at his door. This should be some manner of relief. But his towers haven't felt like a safe haven for a long time now, long before errant scourgers appeared to harass him with strange questions. He misses the immediacy of that threat, prefers it over the slow and indulgent terror of whatever punishment is coming for him, someday soon.

    He tells himself that he misses only that, the simplicity of being unsafe in the company of predators, and that he does not miss the company itself.

    (In which a pair of scourgers shows up at Essek’s doorstep and saves him from himself.)

    Summary

    Caleb and Essek settling down in Nicodranas and building happiness together, making the most of the time they've been given.

    This will be a mid-length multi-chap of a year in the life of wizards in love. I'll promise right now that we're not getting angsty in this. L*fespans will be mentioned, it's inevitable, but it's not going to be featured, because they are trying to live in the here and now, dammit. Nobody breaks up, nobody dies. I am simply not strong enough for that. Only good soft happy fluffy things.

    (E rating for Chapter 2, 4, if that's what you're here for. 90% of these tags are for Chapter 4.)

    Summary

    Essek looked online, and after deeming most of the ads absurd, caught one that seemed good.

    Summary

    Caleb awoke in the middle of the night to a voice in his head. Essek's voice.
    "Caleb, I'm so sorry. I'm sorry we didn't get a proper goodbye, but it's better this way. I deserve this. Please do not mourn. Caleb-"
    The spell cut off abruptly there, but Caleb could tell there was more Essek had wanted to say. Essek hadn't sounded like himself though. His voice had sounded strained like he was in a great deal of pain. The fact that the message had abruptly cut off worried him as well. Essek was always so very careful with his words- surely he would have known that he was reaching the word limit. For someone like Essek to be so distracted- something truly terrible must have happened. "Please do not mourn." "I deserve this." What had happened? Had the Dynasty caught up with Essek or had the Assembly?

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single person in possession of great strength of mind or body, must be in want of adventure.

    Summary

    Set after my story, The Things He Took.

    Essek would have sobbed if there was anything left in him to move or break. Trent had taken all that away piece by piece. He lay still where he had been left, crushed under the weight of the pain of the last hours, of the endless days of torture, kept in a timeless demi-plane until time lost meaning.

    But he didn’t have a choice.

    Caleb needed him.

    Summary

    He takes a sip of his coffee, trying to remain calm but curiosity has always been a wizard's worst trait.

    Essek takes out the note and his heart is pounding in his chest as he reads his name in the familiar handwriting. But as he unfolds it, he finds the paper blank. He can't help but smile before dispelling the note and a few seconds later, the words appear.

    "My friends almost laughed at me when they saw that the paper was blank, but I had a feeling you would find a way to keep things interesting.

    How about "Thelyss' Defy Gravity "? Seems kind of appropriate for the spell. Or maybe you want it to be more personal like "Essek's Amazing Hovering Incantation". I've heard that branding your spells with your name makes you seem more professional and cooler.

    I'll keep the favor in mind. You never know when you're going to need the help of a talented mage..."

    Summary

    “This is not a negotiation.” Deirta Thelyss’s voice cracked the air like a thunderclap, sharp enough that even her ever-bustling flock of attendants twitched. “You will agree to this marriage, or I will have you cast from Den Thelyss for dereliction of duty. Is that clear?”

    Essek held himself stiffly, his shoulders rising in affront. A dangerous lapse of control, considering the woman standing before him, and one he would berate himself for later in the privacy of his tower, but he couldn’t help it. To be bartered off as—as a diplomatic representative of all things. It was absurd, insulting. Was the prestige his accomplishments brought to the den not enough? The Bright Queen herself had awarded him the title of Shadowhand for the advancements he’d made to the field of dunamancy, advancements that had secured countless victories in the war. Why should he have to upend his entire life to accommodate some human he’d never even met?
