    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

    Trent is in the long past, now. But echoes of his work still remain with Caleb.

    (i.e. another fic about those goddamn crystals, i.e. an excuse to write about Caleb needing and receiving care of all kinds, from all the members of the Mighty Nein)

    Summary

    He’s realized how much weaker his wizardry was, how embarrassing it must have been for his Master to have an apprentice whose magic did not come from discipline. He must be disciplined for the Empire, he must be in control, he must understand the weave of magic and know how to make it fold to his will.

    He must be able to cleanse without making himself dirty.

    Theory: Caleb was a sorcerer before Trent broke him.

    Summary

    The last intact copy of Avantika's journal exists in one place only -- the mind of Caleb Widogast. Those who would follow the Cloaked Serpent will do a lot to get it from him.

    A lot.
