    Summary

    Caleb’s blue eyes hold steady, patient, but with an excitable restraint Essek assumes to mean the anticipation of discovery.

    Safe in this study of Caleb’s making, Essek chooses to indulge the both of them further.

    Summary

    Jester wants cupcakes (and a day out with Essek), so she gets him to teleport them to Uthodurn for the day. In the underground city, the Nein's rich kids go shopping. One destination in particular fits into Jester's itinerary: Reani has told her about a very interesting jewellery store run by a dwarven lady called Claire. And Jester is very, very, eager to buy Essek some new earrings to replace the studs he's been sleeping in to not tangle up with Caleb's hair.

    Aka: Essek and his best friend eat cupcakes and go to claires

    Summary

    Caleb wakes up on Rumblecusp with no memories of who he is or how he got there. The people around him seem to care for him greatly, and he wants to do his best to help them, even when they fail to return his memories with their divine magic.

    Many things are confusing, but none more so than what appears to be his personal journal, written in a cipher he can no longer remember. Perhaps the handsome drow his friends brought him to in Rosohna may be of help.

    Summary

    Caleb has never had a place he could call home that wasn’t also taken from him, and perhaps the same can be said for Essek. And now Caleb has made one for him.

    Essek doesn't want to be in it alone, tonight.

    Summary

    "And is that something you would like to explore in our bed?" Essek asked.

    "Y-- I mean. If you are amenab-- I mean, if it wouldn't--"

    Essek cut off his embarrassed speech as he put his lover's hesitation together. He held Caleb's gaze with his own, his smirk confident despite the flush he could feel across his own cheeks. "Caleb Widogast, do you wish to be my pet?"

    Caleb's eyes seemed to dilate impossibly, leaving only narrow rings of blue as he gazed up at Essek. He swallowed hard, drawing Essek's gaze to the elegant, flushed line of his throat, and nodded.

    Summary

    Caleb puffs a breath.

    “Not too far off, I will be an old man.”

    His wry grin doesn’t reach his pretty blue eyes.

    “I suppose.”

    Essek traces a loose second finger along Caleb’s hairline.

    Quite far off for Caleb though, isn’t that? More of an ‘eventually’.

    Then Caleb continues, before trailing off as if still picking words.

    “And you…”

    “Me?”

    With a dry huff of a chuckle, Caleb looks aside.

    “Well, you will be you.”

    Summary

    There is warmth in his gaze and the utmost patience. Essek had seen those eyes brighten when presented with a new puzzle to solve, narrow as he focuses on something, fondness when looking towards any other member of the Mighty Nein, and darken with determination when facing some trouble. He has also seen these eyes wide and empty, staring at nothing after having been torn through by the demonic wings of Lucien.

    Essek tells himself that the anxiety he feels in the pit of his stomach has everything to do with the cats and the cats alone.

    Summary

    “Essek! We ran into some trouble. Caleb is in some sort of coma, and nothing we’ve done is working! Your wizard mind could be of-"

    "-great help to us. We miss you too, so maybe this can be an excuse for you to leave for a little bit!”

    The two successive messages give him extreme worry.

    Essek Thelyss certainly wasn't expecting to have to enter Caleb's dreams today, but faced with a life or death situation, he has no choice but to do it. To save Caleb, he will do anything. Even if it means having to deal with his own problems that he has been steadily ignoring for a long time.

    Summary

    “Meet up for dinner in, say… twenty minutes? Give all of us a chance to drop off our things in our rooms and change out of our snow gear,” Fjord called from the raised platform, waiting for the rest to join.

    “How about an hour,” Caleb said as the remaining seven of them filed onto the platform.

    Fjord raised a curious eyebrow, eyes jumping to meet everyone else's in a silent question. When no one objected, Fjord nodded. “An hour, then. Up!”

    Essek watched him slowly ascend into the upper floors of the tower, and the rest soon followed with cheerful declarations of “Up!”.

    Essek’s own ascent was halted by the weight of a hand settling on his shoulder. His heart jumped at the contact and did not slow when he turned to find Caleb affixing him with an intent expression. Essek felt his smile fall away. His heart somehow sped up another notch at the sound of Caleb clearing his throat.

    “How would you like a tour? A proper tour of the whole tower this time,” he said, hand unmoving on Essek’s shoulder.

    Summary

    It was insane. A waste of a spell that could lead to getting killed by a stranger, although he had no idea why someone from Tal’Dorei would have it out for him.

    On the other hand, wasn’t this why he began traveling to begin with? To be far away from all the forces trying to kill him or draw him back into politics, to gain some perspective by looking outside himself and his narrow-minded goals? Essek pressed a thumb against his mouth as he contemplated this, scanning the paper to a scrap of fabric pinned to the bottom of the map. It was striped purple and gold, a colorful addition to the parchment, and it took Essek a moment to understand why it was there. He could use it to teleport.

    ---

    Essek gets a mysterious message from a stranger asking if he wants to join him for brunch.
