    Summary

    “Happy All Hallow’s Eve,” the master of this slice of the feywild greeted. “I was wondering if I would see you again.” 

    “I, of course, would never pass up the opportunity...so long as you’ll invite me in,” Essek said, remaining on the edge of the space. The barrier between him and the fey pulsed and stretched taut over Essek’s skin. The fae smiled a sharp knowing smile. 

    “Of course,” he said. “You are welcome here, and are owed all of my hospitality.” 

    Essek has a friend he only gets to see four times a year, and enjoys taking advantage of his hospitality. Especially on All Hallow's Eve.

    Summary

    Essek has always preferred sleeping to trancing. Like his lack of reverence for the Luxon, this quirk puts him at odds with the norms of Kryn society, and distances him from his peers. As he gets older he discovers that he can shape his dreams however he wishes. It's a useful tool. An escape. An indulgence.

    When he starts seeing Caleb in his dreams, however, his control - and his grasp on what is real - begins to fray.

    Summary

    He knew he was doomed. There was a sharpness in her gaze that only appeared when she was gearing herself up for battle. Tempers flared. And maybe… maybe he wanted to be caught. Maybe he wanted it to be his own people who decided his fate. Maybe he was just… Tired.

    Summary

    Shadowhand Essek was pleased when the war ended with the Dwendalian Empire. Not only did it mean he didn't have to plan battles and fight anymore, It meant he could finally sit back and focus on his research. That is until some idiot diplomat decided that to make the peace work, there needed to be a cultural exchange. Suddenly he was thrust far from his quiet tower into the practically barbaric Empire to teach at a University in Rexxentrum. He's determined not to let this deter his research, certain he can stay just as focused as ever. Except there's an oddly familiar scruffy man in the library that seems to know exactly the right books, and Essek could swear he's seen him before.

    Summary

    "“So,” Jester began, voice very small. “Either one of us marries one of you, or you’ll never trust us again?”

    The Bright Queen did not respond to that, she simply nodded her head in affirmation. Her hands were pulled back to fold neatly in her lap as she regarded them with something that Caleb would dare to consider pity lingering in the sternness of her eye.

    “I’ll do it,” Jester said and the silent room erupted into motion."

    --

    Or, the one where Jester and Essek get fake-real engaged and the rest of the Nein are left as their helpless chaperones while trying to figure out how to put a stop to it.

    Summary

    "It is said that deep within the woods north of Rexxentrum there is a creature most foul, who would rend and devour foolish travellers with it’s obsidian claws and granite teeth. It is said that this creature was once a mage scorned, a brilliant mind wreathed in venomous thorns that consumed any humanity it had left. With a heart so bitter and cold one would think it had stopped beating altogether, the creature turned it’s icy gaze outwards, lashing out at it’s friends and loved ones until it had nothing but the petrified remains of it’s soul."

    The Medusa!Essek AU nobody asked for.

    Summary

    Mighty Nein College AU

     

    Years later, at a wedding on the other side of the country, after she made a speech with a grin and tears in her eyes, someone would lean over and ask her what drew her to them. Maybe it was that strange mischievous smile or the penchant for bluffing through lies. Maybe it was the instant camaraderie that buzzed between them, as if they’d known each other their whole lives. Maybe it was the way that Beau's smile came easy for the first time in so, so long.

     

    Or maybe it was something else entirely.

     

    Seven very different people never expected this. They never expected friends like this. They never expected a family like this.

    But, maybe it's exactly what they need.

    Summary

    “So, how was it?” Jester asked eagerly.

    “Was he an asshole?” Beau leaned against the wall.

    “Should we kill him?” Veth asked, half serious, half not.

    “He is,” Caleb paused, trying to collect his thoughts while he chewed a piece of bread. “Well, he is brilliant.” That much was evident right away. It was just as clear that Eseek was downright attractive, in a way that had simultaneously made it hard to look at him and to look away. Caleb swallowed and decided that wasn’t worth mentioning.

    OR

    The Mighty Nein's orchid smuggling work isn't exactly legal, but it's doing good. They're helping out the small network of researchers they call friends.

    Summary

    Caleb entered their shared study in the late hours of the evening, itching to get just a little research done before going to bed for the night. Essek had protested at the time, but Caleb insisted that he wouldn't be long.

    Caleb never came to bed.

    Essek already knew why.

    Essek crept ever so carefully into the quiet study. In the stillness of the late hour, he could just barely hear the soft sounds of Caleb's steady breathing from somewhere within the room. Armed with a pillow and blanket, Essek made his way towards the center of the study to find wherever his dear lover had fallen asleep.

    (Caleb falls asleep while reading in the study and Essek takes care of him, resulting in Soft Wizard Cuddles. Very fluffy and tender content contained ahead. You have been warned.)

    Summary

    Day Fourteen: collaring

    It hits Caleb suddenly, and he laughs, an unpleasant bark of a sound. “You are surrounded by immortals with ice in their veins, so you come to me looking for a fireball. Is that it?”
