    Summary

    Evandrin is different. Zerxus, while hyperaware of Evandrin's mannerisms and habits, did not need to be observant to tell that something was deeply wrong with his husband. And while the Ring of Brass tries to figure out what's wrong with their beloved leader, Evandrin, recently returned to the Age of Arcanum from over a millennia in the future, is trying to save his family from themselves, while also trying to navigate the repercussions of time travels effects on his mind.

    Summary

    Zerxus didn’t know where he was. He didn’t know how long it had been since Avalir fell and his body sank into the depths of Hell. He looked down at himself.

    The scars still lined his body, burns and cuts healed many years past, ram’s horns still curled from his skull, but his mind and body were his own again. He wore a simple cotton tunic and black pants, though they were plastered to his skin from the sweat that drenched his body.

    Summary

    Five times Zerxus did a weighted push-up, and one time he didn't really.

    --

    "I should keep a foot on the ground. Don't want to crush you."

    "Please," Zerxus says, holding his plank position. "Don't you trust me?"

    Summary

    “We’re dead, then,” he says. It’s not the disappointment it might have been, once. Everyone Evandrin has ever cared for has passed beyond. Everyone but one, and with Zerxus at his side he’s happy enough to take that final step. 

    “No,” Zerxus says, and something happens inside him, something that pulls him together. The sobs stop, the shaking stills, and Zerxus takes his hands, squeezing them. “No, you’re alive, and nothing will ever hurt you again.”

    Summary

    atonement: (noun) satisfaction or reparation for a wrong or injury; amends.

    "There is no story that does not have an end.

    There are, of course, unfinished stories - prose interrupted, projects discarded, words left hanging on the edge of being resolved. But even stories such as those, in a way, have found their own endings (not all ends are satisfying, and not all plots are tied in a neat little bow).

    So, as it goes for all things, the end eventually comes for the Champion. "

    Summary

    "Evandrin," a dead-dying-doomed Zerxus says to Evandrin, alive (alive!) after all these years and made out of precious gems and starlight, trapped in the astral sea as they both float there weightlessly in the space between spaces, and Evandrin is about to watch as Zerxus condemns his soul to a lifetime of torment for a chance at salvation for someone else. This might be the only chance they get to ever see each other again. "I had no idea that the life of the First Knight in that tower would be so lonely."

    The look on Evandrin's face is not quite sadness, not quite pity, but total understanding. "I failed you, and I made it lonely."

    Summary

    A podfic of And let me speak to th'yet unknowing world by SkyScribbles.

    "The final scene of ExU: Calamity, converted into Shakespearean verse. It is, after all, a tragedy.

    Now all is fire, at this age’s end
    And as the city falls into its place
    So falls the Ring of Brass."
