    Summary

    Essek asks, “How much do you know about drow biology?”

    “Not much, I’m afraid.”

    “Essentially, there was a point far back in drow history where we had— a, a more rigid, erm, breeding cycle—” and Caleb heart stops before fluttering back to life, pounding like a bird’s wing. “I’ve, ah, I was testing a spell and it— did not go as I had hoped.

    “I’ve— sort of triggered it, it seems.”

    Drow live for hundreds of years so they take skincare very seriously. Essek is appalled when he learns the Mighty Nein barely wash their faces everyday. What's a drow to do except give them a crash course? There's one wizard in particular who could use some one-on-one help...

    Here are 5 times Essek buys some Xhorhasian skincare and one time he doesn't have to.

    Consider this a... romantic comedy?

    Summary

    Aziraphale breathes a groan. He can't help it, because he can smell Crowley, a tinge of ethereal spark at the back of Aziraphale's throat, a scent that demands for him to touch. It fills the whole space until there's no air around that doesn't hold Crowley's sweat mixed in it. It's like tasting damp heat on his tongue, a sweet weight that makes Aziraphale want to press against Crowley.

     

     

    While sent to spread peace on the land of the Kingdom of Wessex, Aziraphale runs into Crowley. Things will get complicated despite themselves.

    Summary

    Nott has known for a long time that Caleb is asexual, and has never seen anything wrong with it, or understood why so many others seem to think it's something about him that needs fixing. When she first notices Caleb falling in love with Mollymauk, Nott is resolved anew to make sure that her boy never feels the need to change himself in order to win someone else's love. After all, Nott might not experience romantic feelings, but that doesn't diminish her love for Caleb or her determination to keep him safe.

    It takes her a little while and a lot of watching and maybe a few threats, but eventually she realizes that Molly holds the same resolve as her. The fact that he seems willing to put in the work to win her approval as well is a nice bonus.

    (Written for the Mollymauk Lives Fest, Day 7, prompt "free day". Also written as a followup/companion piece to "Love In All Its Many Facets", but can be read on its own.)
