    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.

    Summary

    “You are… giving me undergarments?” Caleb asked skeptically, eyeing the thin, silky-soft undershirt. 

    “It’s enchanted,” Essek returned, as though that was some kind of contradiction. 

    -

    (In which Caleb is canonically cold, Essek is canonically fancy, and both of them are Looking Respectfully.)

    Summary

    Essek has striking hands. It was one of the first things Caleb noticed about him, after the deft precision of his casting. The long formal gloves that Essek is wearing now are simple and sleek, of a violet as dark and depthless as his magic.

    Caleb strokes the inside of Essek’s palm, lets his fingers wander to the smooth pearl buttons at his wrist.
