    Summary

    "Caleb had fire under his skin and in his veins, burning his chest and his ears and his fingers. He could barely sleep without the fever dreams trying to steal his mind away and take him into the dark. He could barely breathe. His body shook in a false cold, he could feel it, he could feel his hands and shoulders tremble, he could hear his lungs rattling with imaginary ice."

    Caleb falls severely ill on a long journey, and the Nein take care of him the best they can. It's rough, and he is almost lost many a time. But he is not alone.

    Summary

    When Caleb gets very sick, the rest of the Nein take care of him. The fever draws some of Caleb's issues to the front, but if Beau can figure out how to use punching for medicinal purposes, she can figure out how to talk about feelings. Maybe. Caleb isn't used to being cared about, but sometimes if it's masked enough, he can navigate it anyway.

    Summary

    Caleb’s running a fever by the time the rest of the Mighty Nein find him.

    He was expecting that much – he’s done this before, after all, knows that it’s a bad idea and will not go well in the long run. However, bleeding out in the middle of a forest is also not a good idea, and will also not go well in the long run. The difference is that bleeding out in the middle of a forest will go exceptionally poorly in the short run, so it’s a lesser-of-two evils sort of thing. He’s well-versed in Faustian bargains, made both unwittingly and otherwise. It’s fine.

    (In which Caleb gets separated from the rest of the group, and then injured, and then some rather ill-advised DIY field medicine involving fire. The rest of the Mighty Nein are left to pick up the pieces when they find him.)

    Summary

    Someone asked for "The Nein's first experience in Mordenkainen's mansion after Caleb learns to cast it". This is literal world-building so of COURSE it got really long and involved.
