    Summary

    It is a natural instinct to shield young eyes from the sight of death. Luz remembers being younger and twice as tender, riding alongside her mother in the car, only for her to whip her hand out and cover her eyes, speaking rapidly in frustrated Spanish, all because there was a dead animal on the road.

    Now, coming up on the Boiling Isles, Luz tears away from a conversation with Salty and runs across the ship towards King with all the desperation of a girl possessed. She drops to her knees behind him so hard that she feels her elbows rattle, palms open and ready to clap her hands over his eyes-

    -and then she realizes how stupid it is that she’s trying to shield him from a body he’s lived on for most of his life, even if it has a new context.

    Summary

    Caleb tried to speak, but he couldn't open his mouth, which was just as well considering that he had no idea what he would say to Essek anyways, or what question he should ask to get the answers he needed. Was Essek expecting someone else? Should he leave? How long had he been staring? Oh gods, shouldn't he have looked away by now?

    Luckily, Essek did not leave Caleb to fumble and fluster himself for long.

    "Your timing is impeccable as always, Mr. Widogast. I was actually just hoping someone would come to see me." Essek says, with a pleasant smile.

    And then-

    "Would you mind helping me lace this up?"

    (AKA the one where Essek wears a corset and Caleb helps him lace it)

    Summary

    Essek has made a new habit of spending the evenings with the Mighty Nein. And this new habit has led to him revealing that he enjoys poetry and writing. But it's not like any of the Mighty Nein can speak Celestial or Undercommon. Right?
    It's not like they can understand his poems.
    And it's not like Caleb will swoon at his perfect recitations like he sometimes does in his daydreams.
    Nonsense.

    Or is it?

    AKA: The author is a nerd with a theatre degree who loves Shakespeare and wants Essek to woo Caleb with a sonnet. So here it is.
