    Summary

    His brother is dangerous, they would not have asked for him if they did not find him capable, but Verin can feel the political machinations churning. Turning the cogs of the court's favor was always Essek’s forte, Verin has no talent for it and he doesn’t care. He can accept that he was not selected for his abilities, as long as he gets to be here. He is not here to prove himself, he is here to reaffirm Den Thelyss’ loyalties.

    Thinking only of justice and restoring his family's honor after Essek's betrayal, Verin Thelyss finds something he never expected, an Essek he never expected.

    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

    Verin has never been the pious sort himself – he respects Essek’s devotion to the Luxon, but it makes him uneasy. His elder sibling is a wild thing, burning with such intensity that Verin fears it will consume him if he is not careful. And Essek is never careful, not when he has latched on to something with that single-minded determination of his.

    [Or: Essek has been chosen by the Luxon, but all Verin sees is his brother being corrupted by the light.]

    Summary

    Verin Thelyss was not exceedingly close to his older brother.

    They lived together mostly out of necessity—neither of them really wanted to stay in the stuffy old house that their family owned, stifled both by dust and the incessant feeling that you were doing something wrong simply by existing. Moving in together was a natural progression of things. Essek didn’t have any friends to move in with (Verin feels bad for thinking this, but he knows it’s true) and Verin hadn’t been too keen on living in the dorms for his freshman year of college, so a two-bedroom apartment in the city was the perfect solution to all of their living situation-related problems. They ate dinner together a few days a week, watched Great British Bake Off together, and sometimes Essek would help him with his homework, but other that they kept their lives separate for the most part. They’d been living together for about a year and a half now, and while they’d gotten more comfortable with each others’ presences, Verin would by no means consider them close.

    Summary

    The fight at the King's Cage was a mess. Yasha was lost and the Mighty Nine had little choice but to retreat. They should flee quickly, before they are caught linger over the border where they shouldn't be, but Essek can't leave Bazzoxan to it's fate, not knowing whose life is at stake here.

    An AU where Caleb never joins the M9 and instead Essek does.

    Summary

    The baby chews on the ring and considers Verin with doleful sea-green eyes.

    "She is teething,” Essek reports, and the way he says it reminds Verin of the days Essek was still memorizing arcane fundamentals. “I am told that the lower tusks are particularly discomforting in their early stages, even when they are milk teeth."

    “Understandable,” Verin replies. He feels mentally adrift, like he’s stepped into an alternate universe, one where his aloof brother has been replaced by this warm, doting double.

    -

    (Post-canon, Verin comes to a party at Essek's invitation, curious and hoping to reconnect - and is completely unprepared for how much Essek has changed.)

    Summary

    He watches the blood slowly drip from his fingertips onto the floor, crimson rivulets stubbornly finding their way down between the lines on his palms.

    He doesn’t hear the door to his bedroom creak ever so slowly open, doesn’t hear the hasty steps muted by the carpet.

    The blood keeps dripping.

    “Essek?”

    Summary

    Essek Thelyss will be getting his first anamnesis memories any day now. But before that happens, he still has time to take out of his reading to attend to little brothers who decide to fall in shrubberies and get coated in mud.

    Everything is going to be fine and Essek is not worried at all (this is a lie).

    Summary

    No. 15 - FEED A COLD, STARVE A FEVER

    delirium | fever dreams | bees

    --

    At first, they were glad that Essek had remained asleep during the time that Caleb had been gone, though that feeling was soon overtaken by concern. Upon taking a closer look at the unconscious dark elf, it became apparent that this was no ordinary sleep. Essek was running a concerningly high fever, made even more concerning by the fact that the elf usually ran cooler than most. 

    Upon trying to wake him, they received no response, something that just made the situation even more worrying.

    Summary

    Caleb and Essek had both had a wonderful day exploring the fallen city of Aeor. They hadn't run into any danger and had actually managed to find a few interesting objects within the ruins. 

    It was just after they had finished dinner that Essek received the Sending message from Verin. His brother's voice sounded pained and stressed as he spoke. Clearly, something was wrong.

    Summary

    No. 10 - OOPS, I DID IT AGAIN

    hospital | flare-up | ice chips

    --

    "Taskhand, thank you for joining me." Deirta said, addressing Verin by his formal title. Verin had suspected this would be the case, as she only ever called Essek by his title now as well. It was unlikely that she would ever address either of them by their first names, unless she was introducing them to someone, ever again. They were nothing more than artifacts to be displayed when the correct moment presented itself. 

    Verin bowed politely. "Umavi Thelyss. Were is Essek?" He inquired, taking his seat at the table. 

    "The Shadowhand will not be joining us this night. He met with an unfortunate circumstance while on the way to the Bastion this morning."

    Summary

    No. 9 - RUMORS OF MY DEATH HAVE BEEN GREATLY EXAGGERATED

    presumed dead | (blind) rage | tears

    --

    Verin had frozen this morning at breakfast, his stunning indigo eyes suddenly filling with tears. Nyl had feared that it had something to do with his boyfriend's brother the instant the Sending message had come in. Nyl reached out, resting his hand atop Verin's gently. "Are you alright? What's happened?" 

    Verin closed his eyes, taking a deep breath, likely to steel himself for the words he now needed to say. 

    "Thank you for informing me, Caleb. I-" Verin's breath hitched as he tried to keep himself from crying. "I can't imagine how hard that must have been for you." 

    After he had replied to Caleb's message, Verin turned his attention to Nyl. "Essek was killed this morning. Someone from the Assembly. Caleb sounded- wrecked."

    Summary

    "This is going to save us all, Bren. You should know."

    Safety is hard to find in the post-outbreak world. The community of Jackson made it work somehow. They have water, food, and even electricity. The Mighty Nein helps keep it safe, alongside the many other survivors. Since arriving, Verin has had time to build a nice life there. Essek found a way to, maybe, do some good for the people. Caleb is finally letting go of his past.

    But the echoes of a rotten world do not let go that easily, and when old faces appear, crumbling the newly found peace, it's time to face demons far more terrible than an infection.

    Summary

    “Come now, Ess, you two have been so obvious.” Verin lounged on the couch in the Xhorhaus, seemingly totally unperturbed at having two powerful mages staring at him, which is not something many people can claim. “To be fair, you did do a decent job at hiding it at the start, but once I started looking, all the signs were right there. I know I’m not the most observant fellow, but did you really think I wouldn’t notice after being around you two for months?”

    Summary

    “You seek my nature. It is a lonely endeavor. Would you like to join me on this path?”
    “Yes.”

    After a thousand years, a divine champion awakes in a lightless cave above Port Damali with little memory to speak of and a beacon in his hands.

    Even as he struggles to piece the past together and process what he has lost while he slept, the future demands he answer for the crimes of his elders. It offers little in return, but perhaps there are fragments of possibility awaiting him.
