    Summary

    New York in the 1850's is a cruel place.
    Molly Tealeaf knows that more than any poor sucker. Fleeing famine and cruelty from the british crown only to end up a whore and a slave, their identity a tightly guarded secret for fear of imprisonment or death.
    Caleb Widogast survived unimaginable odds to rise to the top of the New York crime order. Feared for his brutality and his rage against a certain corrupt politician, could a chance meeting during an attempt to relieve some tension give him some new perspective?

    Summary

    "There’s an after-school program that I think would do you some good. Like a club, sort of. You could meet some people like Nott.” Mr. Sol’s smile was wide and seemed genuine. “You seemed to get along well with him.”
    “Oh.” Caleb wanted to protest, but he couldn’t. He didn’t need to meet people. He’d had people before, and it had done very little good. He was fine alone.
    “I’ll give your parents a call and let them know, okay?”
    “Ja. Okay.”
    Mr. Sol called the people Caleb was staying with and told them about Zadash High’s “Behavioral Correction Program”. And Caleb left.

    It had only been a month since he’d left rehab and come to this school, and he was already being recommended for a troubled kid's group. So, overall, he was off to a shining start."

    In which Caleb has a lot of trauma to work through, Nott worries about Caleb, and the Mighty Nein is A Lot To Handle (tm).

    The first work in a shamelessly self indulgent, stupidly elaborate High School AU. Basically, the Mighty Nein are shoved into an after school program together. Slow burn bonding, angst, and probably cuddling to follow.
    Title from Noah Kahan's song "Please".

    Summary

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

    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

    “And so,” Eadwulf said, “ever since then, wizards must take care of their hearts, and never give it freely, for they risk the rebellion of their own magic and the curse of the Abyss.”
    Silence fell over the gathered audience.
    “Of course,” Caleb said, dryly, “you could see this story as a bit of propaganda to make the teenage wizards not go falling in love left and right. You know, focus on schoolwork or you’ll die.”
    “Caleb, are you saying you’re in love and it’s killing you?!” Veth half-screamed.

     

     

    Or: There is so much more to live for than romantic love. After everything, Caleb Widogast chooses to live.

    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

    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.

    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

    Sixteen years as a Volstrucker has taken its toll on Astrid. She’s grown accustomed to dancing to Trent’s tune, salving her battered conscience with the knowledge that everything she’s done, she’s done for the good of the Empire.

    When the unexpected return of an old acquaintance gives her cause to doubt herself, Astrid is forced to reevaluate everything she believes in.

     

    Set mostly from Astrid’s pov, The Chosen Few follows Astrid and Eadwulf through the canon timeline of Campaign Two, the second of three fics covering the past, present and future of the Blumentrio. (You don’t need to have read the first fic, Best Days, Worst Days, to read this one as they work as standalone stories).

    Summary

    A bark of laughter escapes Astrid's throat. “My darling, gorgeous Bren. You're so fucking full of yourself. You think I'm jealous? Of him?”

    “Oh, you will be, my beautiful treasure, when you find out just how brilliant he is." His handsome smile twists into something grotesque. "The greatest mage of the Dynasty, and only a few years into his second century. Maybe I'll finally know what it's like to have a peer, yes?”
