    Summary

    Each flower, starting with the one at his horn, begins to fade and wilt, crumbling away. All but the moonflower slowly disappear.

    And then, somehow,

    Molly's eyes open.

    Summary

    Caleb Widogast does not belong here.

    The world of sharp suits, board meetings, and billion dollar budgets is a far cry from Caleb’s preferred domain: the research lab. Where nobody cares about his faded T-shirts and raggedy jeans. But a year of industry experience will look good on his CV, and the hefty pay bump wouldn’t hurt either. How hard could a secretary gig be?

    What he finds behind the glittering edifice of Auriga, Wildemount’s leading name in arcane technology, is CEO Essek Thelyss, who maintains his domain with an acid tongue and an iron fist. It’s difficult not to find him intriguing, this handsome, guarded, brilliant man. It’s even more difficult not to want to please him.

    Caleb knows to keep it professional, though. Working late nights together at the office and lingering glances here and there don’t cross the boundaries of propriety.

    That is, until they do.

    Or: the one where Essek Thelyss loses focus and has a consensual workplace relationship.

    Updates weekly on Mondays.

    Summary

    This is just a collection of one-shots that I am challenging myself to do one each day in December. They will all be Critical Role, but will range between Campaign 2 and 3 mostly with maybe a little based on Legend of Vox Machina. I AM NOT CAUGHT UP in Campaign 3 and am on episode 35, so please no spoilers in any comments. Tags, relationships, and characters will be updated as the month progresses. Here is a link to the prompts I will be using: https://www.writerswrite.co.za/31-writing-prompts-for-december-2022/

    Summary

    “Well then, I shall ask you a question,” said Essek, “Do you believe I should participate in conversation more than I do?”

    Caleb raised his head in alarm. Did his friend think he was being criticised? Did Essek interpret Caleb’s judgement of his own silence as reflected upon him? Caleb raised his hands plaintively, “No, not at all. In fact, I think I’d be a little taken aback if you did. Please understand, it is not silence itself that I dislike and I certainly do not condemn yours, only my...lack of ability.”

    “Why should you hold yourself to a standard you do not hold others to?"

    5 times Essek saw Caleb's unmasked self (and loved him all the same) and 1 time Caleb saw Essek's (and loved him the way he deserved).

    Summary

    “Don’t undersell yourself to a witch,” the man said. “I can fetch my own herbs and find my own bat wings. But you, my friend, are far more than that. You are interesting.”

     

    New threats stir in the dark of the woods. Fjord suddenly finds himself with magical powers and in need of a teacher.

    Summary

    A collection of holiday stories for those who have complicated feelings about the holidays.

    Chapter One: Caleb hasn’t celebrated Feuersegen since he was a child. But the rest of the Nein are curious about the Zemnian holiday, so he agrees to host. It gets a little more complicated when Astrid invites herself.

    Summary

    He wonders if he has a life beyond today. He wonders if he has time to erase the chalk plans in his home before abandoning it forever. He wonders if he was the one who looked into the mirror, or the one who stepped out of it.

    — Essek and the Nein succeed in defeating the Somnovem, but their return to the Material Plane is a backwards trip out of Aeor. He is haunted by his memories, his guilt, the monsters around every corner, the threat of Trent Ikithon — and a shadow in his periphery that looks remarkably like himself. For Essek Thelyss, love and annihilation go hand-in-hand, until he learns otherwise.

    Summary

    Fjord moves slightly closer to Chiron’s horse form. He hadn’t said anything yet, but the mummy in the attic had hissed up a whole bunch of smoke and told him a prophecy. An entire prophecy. Just because he came to camp there was a prophecy. The words she spoke scared him more than anything because Beau was right.

    Usher eight, find one in the belly of the beast, lose one to the toll of the bell.

    The oldest of death.

    The lightning bolt.

    The rage and the blood.

    The fire and ice.

    The trickster and the tricked who follows last.

    Follow the sea and find the cage, if not then all will fall.

    He knows who he is, he's ‘The tricked.’. He doesn’t want to think of that too hard right now.

    Summary

    Essek's hand settles on his belly, rubbing in small, uncertain circles. An idle gesture, but one that strikes Caleb as achingly vulnerable, though he can't quite put a finger on why.

    “I would do anything,” Essek says, low and fierce, “for all of us to have a little more time.”

    [In which Essek joins the Mighty Nein in the fight against Lucien--but none of the Nein know that Essek is pregnant with Ludinus's child.]

    Summary

    Caleb and Essek both knew it wasn’t exactly the safest for them to have many of the usual luxuries of spending a life together.

    But frankly, they didn’t much care.

    Summary

    After a disastrous first trek into Aeor, the Nein have realized they’re still a long way away from being able to face the Somnovem. Hunted by the Empire, watched by many eyes both profane and divine, and grasping at dozens of loose ends in their tales, these ten accidental folk heroes of Wildemount continue to weave their legacy wherever the threads may take them.

    Yes, I said ten.

    Summary

    In the effort to stem the flow of whitestone and residuum ending up in the wrong hands, an anonymous source within the Cerberus Assembly leaks information that leads the de Rolo investigations to the experiments’ greatest failure.

    When Caleb Widogast is released to explore Wildemount, it is with a near singular purpose to stem the corruption that haunts his past and those he's learned to care for half a world away. He just hadn't expected to meet another new family along the way.

    Summary

    Essek has barely begun to cement his place in Caleb’s life when they bring Mollymauk Tealeaf back from the dead.


    Mollymauk had died while holding a relationship with Caleb; it is only a natural reaction for him to still be in love with the man upon his resurrection. For Mollymauk, he can only assume it feels like no time at all has passed. For Mollymauk, it’s as simple as breathing, to kiss the man he loves upon his return to the living.

    Essek knows the desire: every morning upon waking, a groggy welcome to a new day with each other. So few and far in between still, but– ah, not the point right now.

    Tactfully, he averts his eyes.

    Summary

    Essek was stolen away by Ludinus. The Mighty Nein bring him back. Physically, he is on the mend. Mentally, he has yet to return to them. They know how to cure curses, but this one has its claws deep into Essek’s mind, resisting Greater Restoration.

    Caleb struggles with regrets and things left unsaid, but he and the rest of the Nein refuse to give up on Essek.

    Summary

    Deirta Thelyss may not have been of den Kryn, but she was about as close as one could get without climbing back into the Luxon and trying again. She had been consecuted eight hundred years ago, and was nearly as old as Leylas herself, or so they say. The Light had shone upon her and granted her, finally, two children - her golden boy, Verin, and her silver moon child, Essek. Both she loved, in her own way - though, Essek mused as he traced the gilded lettering of his dinner invitation, it was a peculiar sort of love. He couldn’t help feeling there was something missing in the flinch behind his mother’s eyes when she looked at him, how she rose to the occasion in public but did everything she could to pretend he was a ghost behind closed doors.

    The invitation was gilded in gold. I understand the hint, Mother.
