    Summary

    The Kryn Dynasty and the Cerberus Assembly both suspect there is information in the ruins of Aeor that could cause civil war among the dens. The Dynasty would like to make it disappear. The Assembly wants nothing more than to get their hands on it.

    Vurmus Outpost researchers are slowly disappearing, and Essek Thelyss is not believed as dead as he would like.

    He's already sacrificed everything else—all that's left to save his own skin is to shed it.

    (Essek uses the Transmogrification spell to disappear, and finds a tentative home in hiding as the long lost son of the Ruby of the Sea.)

    Essek Thelyss, callsign Shadowhand, the ace pilot of the Kryn Dynasty, had assumed his assignment on the starcity of Whitestone would be simple. Play the part of diplomat and show that the Dynasty could work with the Council. But when he arrives, two new responsibilities are thrust upon him; stealing a Beacon suspected to be held somewhere in the city and placement with the Mighty Nein, one of the city's best flights.

    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.

    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.

    Summary

    He’s in the Marble Tomes. It’s late — or early, maybe. The desk is stacked with books that he hasn’t read, strewn with papers that he hasn’t written over. In front of him, a piece of parchment. He’s been steadily carving holes into it with his fingernails. He doesn’t know why.

    Summary

    Essek of the Mighty Nine has more than he could ever deserve after the harm he did when he fled his home: he had his friends, his freedom, and now status, as one of the new 'Heroes of the Empire'. With that status comes privileges, like finally managing to get access to the Soltryce Academy library.

    That's where he meets the mysterious and charming Caleb Widogast.

    Summary

    From a prompt by soot_and_salt, which I hope others will also take up 👀
    “Essek pulls Caleb's ponytail out in bed and the elastic slides easily onto his wrist. After Caleb's gone, Essek realizes it's still there but he doesn't have the heart to take it off. It's Caleb's, after all. He keeps it on, under the shirt cuff, until Jester notices it…”

    Summary

    "'Oh? And why do you want to braid my hair all of a sudden, Jester?' Essek asks, turning around from the now mostly diced onion that is on the cutting board to face the blue tiefling, whose smile was practically beaming at the fact her question was able to get his attention. 'Well, because everyone in the Mighty Nein has a braid in their hair Essek! It's like, totally a tradition!'"

    Essek learns about a supposed tradition in the Mighty Nein, and even participates in it a little while waiting for others to arrive for dinner.

    Summary

    Essek is warm with a heat that starts in his sternum and radiates throughout his whole body. He wants to pull Caleb closer, closer, tuck him into his chest, and share that warmth with him.

    There is a name for this, he thinks. Surely, it must have a name.

    “It is all-encompassing,” he says instead. “But it is not that.”
