    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

    Bren wakes up in a dank Cell in Vergesson, the fading touch of his cell-mate on his temple and a scream of grief and denial on his lips. He seeks to flee this place of nightmares, to write the wrongs he had done, to erase the monstrosity he had committed. It’s a pipe dream, a fevered wish, but it's all he has left. On his way out, he kills a man who is more of a monster than he ever was, and steals something as important as his returning humanity- a Fairy.
    Fairies are beings said to be of pure Arcana, full of potential. Their wings shed a powder used to enhance a spell beyond the caster's ability. The creatures themselves are used as an Arcane Focus to negate use of material components and enhance spells focused through them.
    They are beautiful creatures, surprisingly humanoid, elf-like, and considered as intelligent as the average house-pet. Bren had seen these before, had worked with them in the past.
    So why, the longer he spends time with this Fairy, does he feel like this was another matter in which he'd been lied to? Why does he feel that this Fairy is- more, much more than it seems?

    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

    Not many scourgers find their way into the Dungeon of Penance - they are quite good at what they do, after all, and those who weren't good enough to complete their mission and escape were usually good enough to take a bite into their nightshade capsule sewn into their uniform.

    it wasn't every day that the shadowhand got to interrogate a scourger.

    Summary

    “Hey, can we get this?” Caleb froze at the sight of Jester waving around a bound spell scroll. The sensation of a cane landing on his back and shameful pleasure filled his mind for a moment before he managed to blink it away.
    “Aw, yeah! It’d be handy to have a charm spell on hand when shit hits the fan.” Beau added.
    “Cayleb, can you spare any gold right now?” Jester had pleaded. The wizard choked over his words for a moment.
    “I’d… Rather not support… Makers of those kinds of scrolls.” He managed.
    “Really, why?” Beau, ever inquisitive.
    “They’re… Made kind of… Unethically, you know?”

    ~ O ~

    In which Trent Ikkythong taught his students that charm spell scrolls require certain ritual preparation, Caleb Widogast goes a good thirty-plus years without realising he was sexually abused, and I ask myself why the hell I want to hurt my comfort characters so bad.
    Serious hurt, with endgame positive ending.
    Seriously y’all, read them tags and take care of yourselves.

    Summary

    They switch positions again late in the evening. Astrid moves between the two boys, her legs tangled up with Bren’s and her head resting on the soft hair of his chest. She can feel every movement of his chest and focuses on its rhythm, taking deep breaths of the soothing smoky scent that appears to be permanently ingrained in his skin. He can feel her breathing lighten from the tight, heavy breaths of before.

    They are four hours and 33 minutes into their night in the tower when Bren feels warm wetness against his thigh.

    Summary

    In an attempt to end the war between the Empire and the Dynasty without bloodshed, a marriage is arranged between the Shadowhand and a Volstrucker. A symbol of peace for the citizens of both countries, and a symbol of a turn to espionage for anyone who knew better. So long as everything went according to plan, no more innocent blood would be shed.
    But then one of them goes missing, caught sharing a kiss with a mysterious tiefling in the woods, and things start falling apart. And as it all unravels, and the Land of the Dead starts to mix with the Land of the Living, long-buried secrets start coming out of their graves.

    It's a Corpse Bride AU, y'all get it.

    Summary

    The impossible was done even before they even had to battle the Somnoven, and Molly had been brought back to the Might Nein with a kiss. Back to friends that have changed and grown, and some even have fallen into love while he was gone. To a world that has lived without him. But could it last?

    Thrust into a fight that he could not have understood, Essek had to learn what it really meant to trust and love his friends, how rich life could be if he thought of more than himself. But there is still danger lurking for him from his past choices.

    Caleb finds himself between two magical purple men, who shouldn’t still be in his life, but against all odds are right by his side. Even as the adventures keep coming after Cognoza, with Trent’s defeat, lap dances at the Lavish Chateau, fights with the Cerberus Assembly, a bisexual maelstrom of sexual tension from all his past and present love interests, revelations about the Luxon and Lucien’s past.

    Come for the sexual humor, stay for the angst. A reimagining of episodes 136-141 and after. Slow burn Shadowidomauk. Smut is marked with “*” in chapter titles if that's what you are here for.

    Summary

    "She smiled. She liked this feeling of power. Of bending the political reality to her will. Of being completely and utterly in control. Inevitably others would have meetings, dinners, calls with Bertrand Dwendal, and the game would start anew. But she was always one step ahead. She was on top. As she stepped into the elevator, she heard one more whisper: Well, she’ll fall eventually, like everyone else."

    Astrid Becke is on top. She has reached her goals. The quest is completed. But this story has just begun.
    Also: Eadwulf Grieve needs to get some information from Verin Thelyss – and finds more than he was looking for.
    Also: Caleb and Essek being cute.

    Summary

    The mighty Nein have managed to do the impossible. They've stopped a war, they annihilated a cult and managed to prevent a calamity, the end of the world.
    They also managed to cut out the malignant tumor back home. Well, at least in part.
    So in the aftermath of the trial, why is it so hard for Caleb to be happy? Perhaps because he doesn't know what normal life means for him anymore. Perhaps because he doesn't know what to do next, and shadows of the past keep haunting him. This is a story about the aftermath, and building a life from ashes. It's a story about building a home.
    ***
    Ch1-Caleb is still dealing with the mental damage of Dinner with the Devil. as the trial concludes, Beau decides to do something about it.
    Ch2,3- After talking with Beau, Caleb goes to confront Astrid and Eadwulf about his conclusions.
