    Summary

    In the city of Neverwinter, there sits an apartment building. It isn’t the biggest apartment building, or the nicest, or even the cheapest, but for the people who live there—and even some who don’t—it’s home, and that’s what matters in the end.

    Summary

    This fellow is wise enough to play the fool;
    And to do that well craves a kind of wit:
    He must observe their mood on whom he jests,
    The quality of persons, and the time,
    And, like the haggard, check at every feather
    That comes before his eye. This is a practise
    As full of labour as a wise man's art
    For folly that he wisely shows is fit;
    But wise men, folly-fall'n, quite taint their wit.”

    - William Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

    Lucretia feeds their history to the Voidfish and scatters her friends down in the world. What she hadn't considered was Taako not forgetting at all.

    Summary

    Merle Highchurch has eyes, and therefore can see that Taako and Magnus are crushing pretty bad on each other. Unfortunately, they're both too shy/damaged/proud/scared to do anything but drop vague hints and sigh.

    So Merle takes it upon himself to fix the problem for his two weird not-sons.

    Summary

    Taako and Kravitz are getting married. Except, well, there’s a little bit of a wrinkle. A tiny hiccup. The planar system’s smallest monkey wrench.

    The thing is, the whole “alive/dead” thing is kind of a problem vis a vis ancient death rules. To beat the system, the Raven Queen’s got a fetch quest that’s a little more complicated than your usual wedding “something old, something blue” and a little more urgent than your standard save the date. Good thing Tres Horny Boys have a whole year of relevant job experience in finding things, because Taako, and everyone else for that matter, has his work cut out for him well before any wedding cake’s getting cut.

    Turns out getting married is a little more complicated when your relationship is less “Til Death Do Us Part” and more “At Death Do We Start.”

    Summary

    The boychik freaks Taako out in a way that few do, unsettling him off of his carefully constructed personality and turning him into a, gods he hates to say it, detective. Why does Angus trot? Why does he call Taako ‘sir’?

    Why does Angus care about them?

    During Lunar Interlude III, before LUP but post magic-lessons-starting.

    Summary

    “Sir?” Magnus is startled by the quiet press of Angus’s small hand into his larger one. “What are you planning on doing when all this is over?”

    He can’t help it, he laughs a little at that. “I don’t know, I wasn’t really planning on making it that long!”

    Or: Five times dying was a joke to Magnus, and one time someone didn't find it funny.

    Summary

    "Magnus Burnsides," the leader said. "We meet at last. Governor Kalen will be most pleased to see you again. He's been searching for you for so long."

     

     

    When Magnus is captured by mercenaries, it's up to Taako and Merle to rescue him. But Magnus hasn't told anyone about his past, and with an unbalanced team, the boys can't hope to do it alone.

    And, it turns out, neither can Magnus.

    Summary

    "It's a matter of life and death," Merle says gravely. After a moment, he admits: "Okay, so there's not actually any fatal danger."

    Magnus rolls his eyes. "Called it."

    "But this is about my dignity. That's almost the same thing, you know. What's a dwarf without dignity?"

    "Not my problem," Taako says.

    Summary

    Magnus is an enforcer. His job is fists and trips to the penalty box and 'nobody makes a dirty hit on my teammate without answering to me'. He's not supposed to be kind, or warm, or gentle. He's not supposed to be soft.

    Or, the one where the Balance gang plays fantasy hockey, Taako is frustrated, Magnus is a mistake of nature, and Merle is highly amused.

    Summary

    The funeral of one of the birds should have more attendants than this, some part of Taako thinks. But Magnus hadn’t wanted that, of course; he’d told Taako as much decades ago, just a few years after the Day of Story and Song. Taako had laughed then, told him he’d regret it when there weren’t any adoring fans weeping and tossing flowers into his grave. Taako isn’t laughing now, here in this clearing with the body that used to be his friend.

    (What comes after the end.)

    Summary

    A collection of ficlets from every day in November. Featuring: Taako pretending as hard as he can that he does not care one bit about his beautiful magic boy, Merle Highchurch being the badass that he is, Lup raining absolute hell on some fucked-up liches, and copious amounts of that good good Taakitz, among other things.

    Summary

    The darkness shifts and swallows their fallen friend and a new person steps up to take her place. Small, sure, determined, and Taako’s heart breaks because Angus shouldn’t have to face down this darkness when it was never his fight. Not without Taako by his side. Not at all.

    Kravitz takes a stand at his side and Taako feels the darkness push towards them all harder.
