    Summary

    [the_shadowhand]
    I would be willing to help you come up with ideas, if you want, so long as you’re willing to teach me your ways with dirty talk.
    It’s… hard for me, I suppose. I never know what to say, let alone with the presence you have.

    [catsire]
    Why Herr Shadowhand, are you flirting?

    [the_shadowhand]
    Not intentionally. More… admiring a skill you have that I lack.

    Caleb is not disappointed. He’s not disappointed when they meet and The Shadowhand has the same casual fake flirty tone as his text. He’s not disappointed when they end up filming together, his feelings most definitely not returned. Caleb can live with the heat of his fixation on the other man as they, somehow, become friends beyond their work. He can handle himself just fine.

    It doesn’t matter that The Shadowhand is gorgeous and brilliant besides. He likes Caleb well enough and there could be hope, if Caleb wasn’t such a fucking mess. They can be friends, and coworkers of a strange sort. It’s fine.

     

    It’s fine.

     

    Until it’s not.

    Summary

    Caleb loses a bet with Veth that results in him being required to wear ugly Winter's Crest sweaters, a different one every day, for the month before the festival. Fortunately, there's a used clothing store in Rexxentrum that just happens to be owned by everyone's favorite leetle blue tiefling.

    E. rating kicks in at chapter 7, 9, 10, 14, 16, 17, 20, 21 if that's what you're here for (or if you want to avoid it).

    1/7: This is turning into a Jester Lavorre character study wrapped in WJ fluff and smut and I'm not mad about it.

    Summary

    “Your target is Essek Thelyss - Shadowhand to the Bright Queen. A noble of the Dynasty who is well trusted and, perhaps more importantly, in the forefront of the study of the dynasty’s carefully guarded magics, though they do not formally recognize him as such. As you know, the Dynasty poses a substantial threat to all who live in the Empire. They seek to take our lands and impose their cult they claim as religion upon our people. The best way we can avoid this is to gain better access to their magics, understand them, learn how they function so that they no longer hold the upper hand in battles. We have determined that Essek Thelyss is the best positioned to support this goal.” Trent’s scheming smile spread upward expectantly. “So Bren, my protege, I turn to you. Can you achieve this for your country?”

    Summary

    So far, the changes made by Nott and Caleb's earlier alliance in the sanatorium have been fairly minimal, the two of them treading the same paths that their canon counterparts have walked.

    Until now.

    Summary

    No. 12 - IT’LL BE FUN, THEY SAID

    torture | made to watch | begging

    --

    Essek had known there was a good chance that the Assembly wouldn't let him go easily, but he certainly hadn't expected this. He had expected them to continue to harass him for information or to manipulate him into stealing more beacons for them. He supposed this shouldn't be too surprising though, considering how cruel he knew the members of the Assembly to be.

    Summary

    A WLW rewrite of the first Transformers movie.

    Samantha Witwicky is an awkward eleventh grader whose only friend is Miles, a boy she's known since kindergarten. After receiving the last A she needs, her dad keeps his promise and buys her a beat up Camaro- her very first car. She's ecstatic, and her day only gets better when, somehow, by the end of it she’s driving with Mikaela Banes riding shotgun. It's an exhilarating, if not your ordinary, everyday, story. Until her Camaro turns out to be anything but ordinary, then things start to get a little crazy.

    Bad at summaries, better at stories. Hopefully

    Summary

    Ikithon goes down with a collar around his neck, and Caleb feels hopeful and empty at the same moment.

    (The war is over, and we are beginning)

    (A rewrite of the Campaign 2 Finale, addressing untouched characters, plotlines, and unaddressed ableism. This series will eventually include Essek/Caleb and Essek/Caleb/Eodwulf/Astrid, but for now, is gen aside from other canon relationships.)

    Summary

    Zemnian, fɛɐ̯ˈnɪçtən, verb.
    Definition in Common: 1) to destroy, ruin, wreck; 2) to annihilate, obliterate, benothing; 3) to do away with, undo.

    Ich werde seinen Geist vernichten.

    What if Bren, after having his memories restored, was unable to escape the asylum? What if, instead, he was kept in Vergesson under Ikithon's spell, only able to try to break himself from it once every thirty days? The Mighty Nein proceed as they had, followed by the cat familiar that had helped Nott escape from a prison cell and stuck with her ever since. Somehow, they still end up Heroes of the Dynasty and winding up before Emperor Dwendal for stopping Obann's attack on Rexxentrum.

    And Ikithon still sets off their creep radars.

    Summary

    Or

    There are parts of his past that Caleb has never spoken about. Now it might be too late to save Essek from the same fate.

    Summary

    Failure has never been an option for Caleb, nor has it been for Essek. When the past comes back to haunt the Mighty Nein’s wizard, he finds comfort in knowing he’s not alone.
     
    “I wasn’t allowed to fail, either, with Master Ikithon.” His eyes fixed on his companion again.
    Essek turned his head to face him, giving Caleb a sorrowful look. “I’m sorry to hear that. Failure is, after all, a part of the natural learning process.”
    Caleb’s brow furrowed and he turned, eyes finding the drow’s. “Then why will you not let yourself fail?”
