    Summary

    It started with a letter.

    Essek had no attendance in his towers, no housekeepers or cooks, no cleaners or maids. Everything he couldn't take care of himself, he found a way to handle with a spell. So there was no easy answer for how the folded piece of cream colored paper ended up on top of his spotless desk in the study of his well secured home.

    “To Essek Thelyss,” it read, in his own looping handwriting.

    Five years after he was supposed to steal the beacons, Essek wakes with the memories of a different timeline in his head.

    Summary

    From a Hobbitkink prompt:

    The battle was over, and Thorin Oakenshield awoke, naked and shivering, in the Halls of his Ancestors.

    The novelty of being dead fades quickly, and watching over his companions soon fills him with grief and guilt. Oddly, a faint flicker of hope arises in the form of his youngest kinsman, a Dwarf of Durin's line with bright red hair.

    (Follows the story of the War of the Ring).

     

    (Bagginshield, Gimli/Legolas) In which recovery takes time, the dead members of the Company take to watching Gimli as though he’s a soap opera, the living struggle with being left behind, Legolas is confused, Khuzdul is abused, and Thorin is four feet and ten inches of guilt and anger.

    Summary

    Caleb Widogast's life is finally looking like it's on track: he's got a good job, his friends are all doing well, he remembers to take decent care of himself, and his familiar is the most popular figure in the Nicodranas library. Things are finally good. But are things ever truly quiet when your friends are The Mighty Nein?

    Dr. Essek Theylss has been exiled to the worst place his mother could think of — bright, sunny Nicodranas. Luckily, unbeknownst to her, Essek has a friend there already. Unbeknownst to him, his friend has been impatient to drag him into her shenanigans for a very long time.

    Summary

    “That’s a new one, isn’t it?” 

    Jaskier’s inhale rattles. “I wrote it months back, actually.”

     Geralt side-eyes him curiously. He is more than a little bit drunk, Jaskier thinks; there is a droplet of ale glistening on his upper lip that his witcher seems not to notice. “You wrote it while we were apart?”

     “Not everything is about you, my dear. But your jealousy is welcome- if unwarranted. I am already composing a new song about my darling muse.” The bard brushes the droplet away with light and exceedingly gentle fingers, smiling at the way the other man blinks in surprise, eyes dilating from the stimulation. “Go back to our room to sleep. You look tired, and we have a monster to hunt tomorrow.”

    Geralt frowns. “You’re not coming with me tomorrow. You're staying here. ‘S safe here.”

    Jaskier laughs. His witcher’s breath is hot against his cheek when the bard turns away. “Since when do I listen to a word you say?”

     

    Or; For all his enthrallment with his witcher, Jaskier's muse has always been heartbreak since the very beginning.
