    Summary

    What does it mean to be a team?

    More importantly, what does it mean to be a family?

    The inhabitants of the Starblaster figure that it's a lot of different things.

    Part of it is being there.

    Part of it is being missed when you're not.

    Summary

    Taako and Kravitz fell for each other hard and fast, but the truth is a bit more complicated than that. They’d met before in a dangerous, broken world. They’d fallen in love there as well, but it was soft, slow, and in secret.

    When the Story and Song unfurled through the planes, Kravitz remembered something, too. His own impossible past. The strange, beautiful realm spread across the expanse of an asteroid belt. He remembered Taako, his home, and how he was willing to die to protect it all.

    It was the 71st year of the Stolen Century. The Starblaster crew crash landed on one of the asteroids of this world, and must find the Light of Creation before it falls into the wrong hands. Taako hated the cycles like this. The ones where he couldn’t chill on account of the obnoxious imperial protocol and warring factions in the way of their progress. But then he met Kravitz, a dashing artifact hunter, and his feelings changed. So what if he wasn’t on the same side?

    Summary

    After two years, College freshman Barry Bluejeans returns to fencing to try and get in shape. He doesn't expect to become the chauffeur for the Starblaster high school team, to get roped into not-technically-larping, or help this kid study for his Bar Mitzvah. He certainly didn't expect to find a community--or to fall in love.

    Meanwhile, Taako is pining for a hot dancer boy, Lup is planning her escape, Magnus is helping overthrow the student council at a school he doesn't even go to, Mavis is fighting with her father, Angus is desperate for a mystery to solve, and Lucretia--well, it's hard to know exactly what's going on with Lucretia.

    It's a TAZ High School-ish Fencing AU! There's a lot going on.

    Summary

    Taako gets hit with a curse and gets turned back into a kid. It's like all of those fun "this character is a preschooler" fics, except he gets turned into a fantasy middle schooler, which is much much worse.

    Summary

    When Angus meets 3 unusual strangers on the train, he goes from suspecting them to trusting them with a speed that surprised even him. He isn't sure what it is about them, but their humor, enthusiasm, and overall strangeness is just... fun. It isn't long before he's inviting them to take an even bigger part of the case than he'd expected.

    When they part ways he is expecting them to be nothing more than a fond memory he will occasionally chuckle at, but then they run into each other again. And again. And again.

    Angus wouldn't usually mind (after all, he likes these guys), but it's really frustrating when half of their words are just static.

    OR

    What started as a retelling of the Rockport Limited from Angus's POV turned into an experiment to see what would happen if Angus was never inoculated, but kept popping up to help with the relic hunt anyway.

    Summary

    The hunt is on! Someone's gotten hold of a Grand Relic, and they're using it to... rob a bank. There are petals. There are metals. There's more than one important tree. There's a drag race. The fight for this Relic is going to be prickly.

    Note: This work is part of a collection aiming to adapt the incredible TAZ: Balance arc into a cohesive series of novels. I have several friends who are eager to experience the story but, for various reasons, cannot handle podcasts. Until the graphic novels catch up, this is for them. The story, plot, and characters belong to Griffin, Travis, Justin, and Clint McElroy; I highly recommend enjoying the incredible story through their podcast if you are capable of doing so. They're a lot funnier than I can ever hope to be. Otherwise, please enjoy!

    Summary

    Summary

    Taako and Lup never planned on going to college at all, and they certainly didn’t plan on living in some old dudes house with 5 other people and upwards of 100 potted plants instead of a dorm.

    Summary

    Taako always felt like he was part of a whole, and the other piece was missing. He chalked it up to the depression and didn’t stop to think about it. That was, until he became part of a secret organization to save the world, and remembered more than he should’ve.

    Now he just had to undermine Lucretia (And mess with her, of course), find Barry, find Lup, and avoid suspicion from Magnus and Merle. All the while dealing with faulty memories.

    Shouldn’t be too difficult, right?

    Summary

    "I want you to know that I am always going to be here for you. No matter what. You know that, right?”

    “I know. I’ll always be here for you too, Lup.”

    And they held one another for a long moment. And it would have been really nice if not for the small voice whispering in the back of Taako’s head.

    You’re lying to her.

    You won’t always be here.

    You’re going to die.

    (In which Taako realizes his three favorite people in the world are now immortal and goes on a secret quest for immortality.)

    Summary

    Ever since Taako woke up alone in a field ten years ago, he’d known something-- someone-- was missing.

    He traveled all throughout Faerun, searching for that someone. He recognized that his memories were wrong; they told him he had been alone. But he knew he had her. He’d never been alone. Well, until now.

    He takes a job for some extra coin, his heart aching as he meets his new colleagues. When he finds the umbrastaff, it feels heavy in his hands. He wished he knew why.

    That glove (Phoenix Fire Gauntlet, his mind tells him through the static) felt horribly familiar as it destroyed the town.

    Then he got to the moon, and he drank the ichor. And he remembered more than he was supposed to-- He remembered Lup, his other half, the missing piece. Barry, whom he considered a brother. The rest of the IPRE and their long journey through reality.

    But even after ten years of searching (without knowing exactly what he was looking for) he didn’t know where Lup was. Now he just had to find Barry, avoid suspicion from Lucretia, and also collect the relics without acting too weird around Magnus and Merle.

    Shouldn’t be too difficult, right?

    Summary

    Ten years ago, the Great Relics came to Faerun. How they came and why is a mystery, but their effect was almost instantaneous.

    Out of the tragedy, a savior arose: the Bureau of Balance, a clandestine organization established to save the weak-minded masses from the thrall of the Relics.

    They do not work alone: In the shadows lurks a group of men and women feared for their ruthlessness and brutality who hunt down the unfortunate souls who fall victim to the Thrall.

    They are the Regulators, and the most formidable of their number is the most terrifying of all.

    Assassin. Murderer. Monster.

    Bluejeans.
