    Summary

    There is a gravity that has pulled them together many times. It pulled Caleb’s lips to Essek’s forehead, and Essek’s hands to Caleb’s arms when a tower collapsed upon him. It pulled Caleb to Eiselcross, now, to be at Essek’s side as his life as the Shadowhand dies.

    Now, it could pull them together into Aeor.

    (Two wizards venture into Aeor - and find that something has woken in the dead city's depths. Something dangerous. Something that will force them to decide what their pasts mean to them, and what they mean to each other.)

    Summary

    On a long list of terrible ideas, Imogen reflected, this particular choice on her part really took the top spot.

    Her therapy session that week had gone well. Really well, actually. So well that when her therapist had suggested Imogen "take a small step out of her comfort zone", Imogen had seized her rare confidence and decided she’d visit a coffee shop.

    A loud coffee shop. Open to the public.

    One with other people in it, to be clear.

    Summary

    The fact that six mercenaries and a weasel have stowed away on the highest-security vessel in the Dynasty’s fleet is, technically, a serious problem that bodes poorly for the rest of their journey. But Essek is delighted. He’d been dreading a long and tense voyage to Mutalos, without any company except for a skeleton crew comprised mostly of military personnel, the awkward spare scourger, and his—

    It feels strange, to think of Beck as his wife. Even calling her his enemy feels too intimate.

    (In which Essek agrees to a political marriage to ensure intergalactic peace and keep himself alive, only to discover that his wife has married him for exactly the opposite reason.)

    Summary

    When Elias seeks a replacement for Gertrude, he's looking for someone already Marked. He finds one - the researcher touched by Forsaken will do just fine.

    In which Martin is the Oxford educated researcher and Jon is the under qualified librarian-come-archival assistant.

    Teen + up basically only for cursing and cannon-typical horror/violence. Might upgrade to M if I'm feeling ~spicy~ later on.

    Summary

    They saw new sides of each other, living together. Martin got to see pre-coffee Jon – a monster made of bedhead and irritability – and Jon, while helping Martin convert the couch-bed back into a couch, saw Martin genuinely angry for the first time. (It was odd to think that there was a level of unhappiness Jon hadn’t seen from him, given their recent experience of nearly being eaten by worms together, but that rusted goddamn bedframe was enough to bring it out in him.) As Martin broke out some of the more creative curses in his repertoire, Jon gave up on the bed to simply watch in awe.
     

    They learned other things about each other as well. Jon was a surprisingly courteous houseguest (courteous to a fault, if anything - he must have said the sentence “Whatever you want is fine” about 15 times as they were figuring out dinner plans, which was nice and all but not helpful, Jon!) and a surprisingly heavy sleeper. He liked to wear socks around the house, and he never remembered to refill the brita, and he sang in the shower, surprisingly well.

     

     

    After Leitner's death, Jon flees to Martin's apartment. Some things change, many stay the same.
