    Summary

    Two decades have passed since Vecna's rise to Godhood, and Vox Machina's answering punch in the teeth. Life has returned to normal. More or less. There's a new generation to look after, now, but Tal'Dorei may just need a little more help from some of its greatest protectors, even if most of them ARE retired, relatively speaking.. because there's trouble brewing in Exandria, and the Mighty Nein cannot handle it, alone!

    Summary

    The ringing note of a concert A is played by the oboe, echoing on its own in the space. It’s picked up by the wind section, followed rapidly by the brass, and the familiar feeling of an orchestra calibrating takes over Caleb. The tonal adjustments as each person brings their instrument into alignment sinks into him and something inside Caleb shifts in recognition as Essek leads the strings into their own tuning.

    It’s like something is waking up, like something unfurling and firing across long-unused paths of memory. His hands shake slightly, as he raises his bow and joins them, fingers fumbling against the pegs and fine tuners that give him control over his instrument.

    ----

    Essek Thelyss is a leading violinist, his spot as Shadowhand of the Rosohna Philharmonic Orchestra has been uncontested for over a decade. Caleb Widogast is a recent arrival to the city, convinced by his friends to audition for one of the vacant violinist positions.

    After starting off on the wrong foot, Caleb and Essek get to slowly know each other, discover what brings them joy, create while defying expectations, and find out that what they can produce together may just be better than anything they can do separately.

    Summary

    “Your target is Essek Thelyss - Shadowhand to the Bright Queen. A noble of the Dynasty who is well trusted and, perhaps more importantly, in the forefront of the study of the dynasty’s carefully guarded magics, though they do not formally recognize him as such. As you know, the Dynasty poses a substantial threat to all who live in the Empire. They seek to take our lands and impose their cult they claim as religion upon our people. The best way we can avoid this is to gain better access to their magics, understand them, learn how they function so that they no longer hold the upper hand in battles. We have determined that Essek Thelyss is the best positioned to support this goal.” Trent’s scheming smile spread upward expectantly. “So Bren, my protege, I turn to you. Can you achieve this for your country?”

    Summary

    During their trip back into Aeor, a piece of ancient Aeorian magic swaps current-day Essek across time and space with his twelve-year-old self.

    Caleb tries to figure out how to fix things while looking after a precocious young drow, and learns a few things about his friend in the process.

    Meanwhile, back in Rosohna, Essek runs into a few of his relatives, tries to work out how to get himself back, and attempts not to get arrested for his own kidnapping.

    Summary

    Deirta manufactures an image of domestic peace—her youngest child feigning sleep in her arms as she puts a book away—before the mob bursts into the library. Its circuitous, winding bookshelves buy her enough time for one last spell to modify Essek’s memory, sealing away his recollections of den Thelyss, of Verin and Taldia, of herself.

    Or: Verin is spirited out of Rosohna, leaving his younger brother behind, right before the Bright Queen orders den Thelyss to be razed to the ground. When Verin returns, he discovers that there is no one in Rosohna who bears the name Essek den Thelyss. There is only Essek den Kryn.

    Summary

    The eldest son of Umavi Deirta Thelyss was a gregarious, brilliant boy, a rising star in Den Thelyss. Until he wasn't. The boy closed off, buried himself in his studies, roused from trance weeping. When his body was no longer a safe place to live, he built his own safety with nothing but Will and Weave. Alone, he was safe. Alone, no one could see his heresy, his wounds. Until he met the Mighty Nein.

    Summary

    Not many scourgers find their way into the Dungeon of Penance - they are quite good at what they do, after all, and those who weren't good enough to complete their mission and escape were usually good enough to take a bite into their nightshade capsule sewn into their uniform.

    it wasn't every day that the shadowhand got to interrogate a scourger.

    Summary

    Duani loved children. It was one of the reasons she was so highly recommended by all of her previous clients. She was not using her job as a nursemaid and governess to gain favor or reputation. She was doing it because she loved it and she loved the children that she got to raise.

    Essek and Verin Thelyss were no exception.

    Summary

    At a party in the Kryn Dynasty to celebrate the end of the war, Essek Thelyss meets a strange human who disappears into the night. While he reminds himself he is not interested in him romantically, he does find that searching for this man is a welcome distraction from the pressures of royal life, even as he thinks of the one night they studied magic together.

    Caleb Widogast, planning his escape from the brutality of his teacher, had only gone to the party to be seen before he disappeared. His testimony sent to the Cobalt Soul, he is on the road until he is potentially called into trial as a witness. On the road, however, he can't help but think about the stranger he met on his last night as Bren.

    A Cinderella AU inspired by the ETFC. Title from "We've Got Tonight" by Bob Seger.

    Temporary hiatus because it's the end of the term and grad school is exhausting :)

    The sleeping was, as Caleb called it, an exercise in self-flagellation. Essek knew that Caleb hated what he was doing to himself, the nightly slog through nightmares.

    Summary

    She heard of the whispers, that it was strange for the Umavi of Den Thelyss to neglect her duties after her recovery period. Strange to not use a wet nurse, as most other noble mothers did. Strange given both common practice and the example of her own past lives. Strange to coddle a child so, when they would leave her in a few short decades. No one dared voice these judgments to her directly, but she heard them all the same. She took note for political purposes, while personally remaining unbothered. The Luxon had granted her a child who would remain hers, and she had no intention of wasting that.
