    Summary

    “Don’t you recognize us?” the large man asks him, a frown on his face. 

    “Well, we do all look very different than we did two decades ago,” the man in the hoodie rolls his eyes. “Of course he’s not going to recognize us.” The others ignore him, which Klaus thinks is quite rude, but he’s not going to say as much and risk getting stabbed. 

    “Klaus, it’s me,” the leather guy repeats. “Diego. Your brother.”

    Klaus’ eyes bug out of his skull—that’s the craziest thing he’s heard all year.

     

    or, AU where Klaus runs away from home when he's ten-years-old—just a few months later, his fully grown siblings fall out of a portal in the sky.

    Summary

    In the Dynasty, the celebrations that welcome the new year - the New Dawn - are somber and stuffy. Essek has never had much of a taste for parties, either.

    Marion Lavorre's soirée at the Lavish Chateau, though? Might just change his mind.

    Summary

    Fjord holds out a hand for him, and then Essek breathes again. He begins to climb. He’s a fast learner, he always has been; and he’s learned that this group will be fine here, so long as they don’t have to drag him up the temple wall themselves.

    “They’re almost here! C’mon!” Beauregard calls, looking back towards the pack of eelhounds.

    “Keep climbing!” Fjord yells.

    Essek doesn’t look back. He keeps pushing, even when the pain in his leg shoots up through his hip every time he pushes off with that side. The muscles of his legs and arms are still shaky, his heart pounding in his throat. He grits his teeth together. He can do this. One stone step at a time. He can hear Yasha as she growls, feral and angry. He’s almost at the top. One more step. One more.

    ____

    Or the fic where Essek and TM9 investigate a temple of Uk'otoa.

    Summary

    Essek draws out the spool of platinum cord from his component pouch. He loops it around his own wrist before catching Caleb’s wrist and repeating the motion. Caleb blinks, staring down at the wire before meeting Essek’s gaze again. Essek feels him start to tug his hand out, and tightens his grip.

    “Do you trust me?”

    “I—” Caleb starts, before breaking off, his blue eyes wide.

    “Do you trust me?” he repeats, more urgently this time. He has only moments before the door behind him will burst open.

    ———

    In which Essek teaches Caleb the practical application of tether essence.
