    Summary

    More than hearts are on the line in Aeor, as Caleb Widogast and Essek Thelyss search for answers, and discover that there's more to the ruined city than they ever knew.. and more to themselves, as well. The arrival of Verin further complicates things, but the chaos has only just gotten started with Exandria once more in peril, and without the Mighty Nein together to stop it. Can two broken wizards and some unlikely allies do the trick?

    Summary

    “Ah,” Essek laughs softly, placing his bundle of parchment on a desk next to a sleeping Siamese and then crouching down before Frumpkin. “Another one, then?” He holds out a finger towards the wriggling kitten, who pauses and cautiously sniffs the proffered hand. “Where did you find this one?”

    Summary

    Essek loves the tower.
    Of course, he loves the tower. How could he not? He loves waking up not dead after a fight that killed him. He loves being warm in the freezing north, surrounded by those he called friends. He loves magic. He loves-
    He loves what Caleb does with magic, putting such a personal touch on everything. He was floored by the beautiful stained glass windows, representing every school of magic, including his own. The incredible library full of books that man had read over his years and committed to memory. He cannot begin to express what he feels about the room custom made for him.
    The cats, though.
    He is not sure how he feels about the cats.

    or, essek was lucky enough to get through the fight at aeor after being revived. the battle to win back the nein's trust will be harder.

    Summary

    The elevator dings and they both step out onto the ninth floor. Essek lets Widogast take the lead and follows him down the hallway, taking note of the twists and turns to follow them back on his own later if need be. Widogast pulls his key out from his pocket, fumbling with the card reader a few times before the light on it flashes green.

    “Well, here we are,” he says, holding the door open with a smile.

    Essek inclines his head politely and steps inside of what is to be their shared space for the duration of the conference. The room is fairly well furnished, for what he’d been able to afford. There’s a small kitchenette area with a microwave, tiny fridge and freezer, and coffee maker, as well as two plush chairs set in front of a glass coffee table. The curtains are currently pulled back, revealing the city of Uthodurn beneath them, snow sparkling in the setting sun. There’s even a modestly sized desk along one wall, next to most of Essek’s belongings that had been sent ahead—his wheelchair is folded up to rest against the chest of drawers, and his other two bags are sitting on the floor next to it.

    And, as becomes painfully obviously once his gaze pans farther back, there’s only one bed in the room.

    Summary

    Summary

    “Yussa, I’m just a routesetter.”

    Yussa gave Essek a strange look, and, even from Emon, their glare made Essek shift uncomfortably. Their golden eyes flickered with something like frustration—and surprise.

    “You’re the only person in Nicodranas aside from myself who has competed internationally, and you’re the only person in the entire Menagerie Coast who has won gold at multiple World Cups. What could possibly be confusing about this?”

    “I didn’t come here to train Olympic dropouts, I came here to escape that life,” said Essek.

    Summary

    Faerie Princess Genevieve of Nicodrania is doing her best to behave like a grown up princess. Being stuffy and responsible isn’t much fun, but at least people aren’t getting annoyed with her so much.
    But then she finds a faerie unconscious and bleeding in the forest. A faerie that looks a lot like those that live in the dangerous kingdom of Empyria.
    And everything changes.

    Summary

    Bren - No, Caleb, they told him his name is Caleb - Caleb has been outside the Assembly for four months, sixteen days, and 21 hours. He's been in the hospital for most of that time, a part of what people keep referring to as a "Protective Program".

    He's not sure what he's being protected from. He's also not sure about these people he's being sent to live with, a family called the Brenattos who apparently have acted as a safe house for those within the program before. They're Betas, though, so maybe it won't be too bad.

    or

    The Ermendruds were brought into the Assembly - a cult run by an Alpha known as Ludinus Da'leth - when Bren was fairly young. It became all that he knew, all he's lived for as he grew up under ideals of strength, power and complete and utter loyalty.

    When he Presented as an Omega come puberty, he was taken from his parents to serve a new purpose. He was put under the "care" of another high ruling figure in the Assembly: Master Trent Ikithon.

    After the cult is later found and torn down by authorities of Exandria, Bren - now Caleb - is thrusted into a whole new world. At least he made some friends along the way.

    Summary

    Floor nine of the Sehanine Building at Rexxentrum Academy is where the school houses anyone they don't quite know what to do with. Anyone who marked down anything but "male" or "female" on their surveys, anyone who has a tumultuous past, anyone they might want to keep an eye on. Caleb and Molly start out a tenuous friendship as neighbors on floor nine, neither aware of the colorful dreams the other shares with them each night.

    But it's probably just a coincidence that Caleb dreams of a purple haired, horned creature that looks a lot like Mollymauk. And that Molly dreams of a boy consumed by flames. Right?

    Summary

    Caleb awoke in the middle of the night to a voice in his head. Essek's voice.
    "Caleb, I'm so sorry. I'm sorry we didn't get a proper goodbye, but it's better this way. I deserve this. Please do not mourn. Caleb-"
    The spell cut off abruptly there, but Caleb could tell there was more Essek had wanted to say. Essek hadn't sounded like himself though. His voice had sounded strained like he was in a great deal of pain. The fact that the message had abruptly cut off worried him as well. Essek was always so very careful with his words- surely he would have known that he was reaching the word limit. For someone like Essek to be so distracted- something truly terrible must have happened. "Please do not mourn." "I deserve this." What had happened? Had the Dynasty caught up with Essek or had the Assembly?

    Summary

    There are children, ruddy-faced and grinning toothily, couples holding each other, worn hands intertwined, a man with a face full of wrinkles smiling as his entire face lights up, and Bren’s parents, not looking at the sky above, but at him past the curtains, their eyes shimmering red and gold and prideful.

    He never knew how beautiful his magic could be.

    And it is beautiful. It's elegant in a way completely separate from his books and studies, his pages and hours of academics that let him perform the feats he does. There is a beauty to the world in his books but there is far more to be found in the world around him, Bren thinks.

     

    Or, a study on Caleb's relationship with magic throughout his life.

    Summary

    If he reaches out and brushes a lock of hair from Caleb’s face, will Fjord notice?

    No, he’s being ridiculous. Caught up in a fantasy of something that doesn’t belong to him. These thoughts, unbidden as they are, are the result of their current situation. The world could end in a matter of hours and knowing that has affected his thinking. Has made him long for some kind of connection. It doesn’t mean anything, only that he is a lonely man looking death in the face.

    Well. Hasn’t he been that for some time now?

    ~ ~~

    Essek is the first to learn of Caleb’s telepathy.
