    Summary

    These are the facts. Essek Thelyss is a traitor to the Dynasty. He has collaborated with the Cerberus Assembly on dunamantic research. His loyalties are an entirely unknown quantity, and likely nonexistent. He is, above all else, a liar.

    Also, he all but lives in the neighborhood now, and it’s very uncomfortable.

    Summary

    For a moment, Essek and Caleb look at each other, breathing in the quiet orchard sounds, held in that instant like a dewdrop clinging to the end of a blade of grass. It is a fragile peace - one where Essek pretends he isn’t here to ask questions, and Caleb that he has no answers.

    Caleb is the one to break it. He is the one who destroys so many things, why not this too?

    -

    (In an alternate post-canon where Essek travels with the Mighty Nein, their route brings them close to Blumenthal, and Caleb feels himself slipping into the past.)

    Summary

    There had been rumours about his and Caleb's sordid love affair since long before it was technically true. Essek was simply... playing into them a little, to help his defection go a little more smoothly. Rosohna would gossip about it for a few months, and then the rumour mill would move on, as it always does.

    (it doesn't).

    Or: how Essek and Caleb accidentally inspired (at least) a few dozen smut novels.

    Summary

    This is a great honor, Essek reminds himself, trying not to recoil as fingers run through his hair, working through the tangles. A braid is made of three strands, symbolizing the inextricable bond between the soul, the den, and the Luxon. A recognition of an achievement by the drow who bears it. With each braid, the soul is bound ever closer to its den and to the Luxon.

    It is a lesson Essek learned long ago, but one he is never permitted to forget.

    [Or: the story of why the Shadowhand wears his hair cropped short.]
