    Caleb’s own hands are scarred and callused, and maybe, just maybe, they would be enough to hold the jagged pieces of Essek together.

    Summary

    PART V: MIRANDA

    At first, Astrid values the barbarian woman on Fjord's crew for the healing touch of her hands. And Yasha is sure this powerful and refined mage can't be interested in her for very long. But as both women grow closer, they find an unexpected solace in each other, and realize their brokenness is not such a bad thing after all.

    (While this coda does not focus on Fjord and Caleb, it does wrap up a couple of loose threads in their plotlines.)

    Summary

    The impossible was done even before they even had to battle the Somnoven, and Molly had been brought back to the Might Nein with a kiss. Back to friends that have changed and grown, and some even have fallen into love while he was gone. To a world that has lived without him. But could it last?

    Thrust into a fight that he could not have understood, Essek had to learn what it really meant to trust and love his friends, how rich life could be if he thought of more than himself. But there is still danger lurking for him from his past choices.

    Caleb finds himself between two magical purple men, who shouldn’t still be in his life, but against all odds are right by his side. Even as the adventures keep coming after Cognoza, with Trent’s defeat, lap dances at the Lavish Chateau, fights with the Cerberus Assembly, a bisexual maelstrom of sexual tension from all his past and present love interests, revelations about the Luxon and Lucien’s past.

    Come for the sexual humor, stay for the angst. A reimagining of episodes 136-141 and after. Slow burn Shadowidomauk. Smut is marked with “*” in chapter titles if that's what you are here for.

    Summary

    "Bren and Wulf stood there, helpless. They looked at each other, not knowing what to say. They were just boys after all, how were they supposed to comfort a girl? Let alone one as powerful as her?

    Still turned towards the hearth, she spoke. Her voice was back to the controlled Astrid they knew, the determined one. The leader.

    “There is something you can do. Both of you.”

    Without making eye contact, she made her way over to the foot of the bed. She turned to face them, the rage in her eyes tempered into resolve. She swallowed, and took a breath.

    “Come.” Her voice was as quiet and unwavering as all the times before.

    Bren’s body froze. But, his mind started running.

    It wouldn’t be like the other times. They could see each other now. Was it acceptable for them to do such things in the light, no matter how dim? When they weren’t doing it to survive?"

    ...

    When the trio is locked up in a chilly cell during "training", they strip and cuddle to conserve body heat. It's normal to do it when they need to survive, but what will they do when Astrid asks them to do the same for her after a bad day?

    Summary

    Because even though by many metrics Caleb should have been a terrible choice to put in a beacon-machine, having never received one himself, and by many metrics Essek should have been a terrible choice to receive a beacon-machine, given his pointed refusal to being consecuted at the usual age of sixteen, they had scored so highly in aptitude with each other that now here they were: sun-blinded and eyes wide open as the ship finally docked, shuddering, in the City.

     

     

    Essek is a newly-arrived ambassador in Rexxentrum, Beauregard is his assigned cultural liaison, and Caleb is the consecuted soul at the back of his mind. Empires and Dynasties do not serve: they consume.

    Summary

    Astrid has learned to live with one eye by now. It’s manageable, most days. 

    Until one evening, when the wine she’s pouring for Caleb sloshes out onto the table and directly into his lap.

    Summary

    PART IV: THE ISLAND

    A year after his rescue of Caleb and the killing of Trent Ikithon, Fjord returns to Darktow at the bidding of Uk'atoa, ready to embark on the next stage of his journey with his leviathan patron. But the farther he pursues his quest, the more the residuum in Caleb eats away at him; Caleb knows it is only a matter of time before he succumbs to the crystals' growth, and a solution seems more elusive than ever. As forces greater than they are threaten their lives and their love, it is up to Caleb and Fjord to decide how far they will go to protect themselves and more importantly, each other, and what they will trade for that power.

    Because power, as it turns out, is the only thing that can keep them safe.

    Summary

    A retelling of Caleb and Molly's backstories set in the 90's. Smut is in Chapter 7 only and completely skipable. Basically a generic romance of my boi's getting together.

    Mildly dubious consent tagged, but it's completely consensual. See chapter 7 notes.

    Modern/90s AU widomauk drabble for a series of tiktoks that I'm doing. Tags will update as I write and make decisions. Character descriptions were deliberately vague so anyone can join on tiktok as human versions or canon compliant versions, but I've decided against it cause Molly and Jester need tails. But human versions are absolutely welcome on the tok tag.

    POV will alternate between Caleb and Mollymauk. Please feel free to write the story from any of the other characters pov, I just wanna know about it so I can read it! If you make videos, I also wanna know so I can show some love.

    Posting weekly on Tuesdays, except when I'm feeling feisty and post a surprise chapter between regular posts.

    Summary

    After six painfully long years, the man in question was no longer the child that Essek remembered and yet could still render Essek breathless, could still leave him feeling weak at the knees. Essek had to grip the edge of the stadium for a long moment as he focused on his breathing. He’d made a promise all those years ago, and now as he looked at the gorgeous man in the center of the ring fighting, literally, for his life, Essek realized he’d failed at that promise.

    Consecution AU in which Essek and Bren met at the Soltryce Academy when they were both much younger. Even back then, Essek had been more than a little smitten, but unprepared to admit it. Now, nearly six years later, Caleb gets the chance to see all the things Essek did in the name of love.

    Summary

    Caleb loses a bet with Veth that results in him being required to wear ugly Winter's Crest sweaters, a different one every day, for the month before the festival. Fortunately, there's a used clothing store in Rexxentrum that just happens to be owned by everyone's favorite leetle blue tiefling.

    E. rating kicks in at chapter 7, 9, 10, 14, 16, 17, 20, 21 if that's what you're here for (or if you want to avoid it).

    1/7: This is turning into a Jester Lavorre character study wrapped in WJ fluff and smut and I'm not mad about it.

    Summary

    It starts in the Blooming Grove, among gravestones and burnt flowers.
    None of them know how to be kind to themselves. It’s an unexpected relief for all three of them to realize that at least, despite all the ways they are broken, they’re still capable of kindness towards others.
    They certainly don’t deserve Caleb, but they might just deserve each other. And maybe, just maybe, they can help each other heal.

    Summary

    In all his years as a Volstrucker, Bren Aldric Ermendrud had never found something he couldn’t buy, coerce or steal. Everyone and everything has a price, be it coin, blood or secrets. Except maybe the love of a little blue Tiefling.
    Although it’s been far too long since he felt anything close to love, as soon as they meet Bren knows there is nothing he will not do to be with Jester Lavorre. But has so much of his humanity left him that he is willing to forcefully take her heart, or can he prove his worth and have it freely given?

    Summary

    Obann's team was harsh, Obann's team was strict beyond measure. Yasha knew that sort of thrived in it. Zuala struggled and when one performance goes wrong it changes everything for them.

    Unable to cope, Yasha turns to Football, hoping that the green of the field and the energy of the players she coaches can bring her back to form and back to life.

    Fresh out of college and out from under her parent's thumb, Beau wants to follow in the footsteps of the greats of Olympic History, falling feet first into Yasha's team, the Cobalt Sentinels. Determined to show her parents that she can do more than cause trouble, Beau can't keep her eyes off the gorgeous Assistant Coach who looks less than thrilled to be there this year.

    Beau's got a plan to change that, and it starts with a headshot.

    Summary

    After Aeor, Caleb buys a house in Rexxentrum with Beau and Yasha. For the first time in more than seventeen years, he has some semblance of stability. Caleb is not sure he's ready to handle it, but he's trying, and his friends are eager to see him live a good life, by force if necessary.

    And then Soltryce Academy approaches him with a job offer, which could give Caleb the chance to protect the next generation of wizards the way he had needed at their age. Caleb's goal of preventing what happened to him from happening to anyone else, however, takes a far more personal turn than even he could have anticipated.
