    Summary

    Vex isn't ready to settle down yet, maybe she doesn't want to keep saving the world but she needs some kind of adventure. And it isn't fair to Percy for her to ask him to leave Whitestone and put himself in danger again, not after he can finally have his life back.
    Percy hasn't sat still for this long and he's getting antsy, he's hoping that there's danger around the corner, he's still making dangerous things in his workshop and he wants to go back out there. Whitestone is too quiet and while it's his home he's not ready for it to be his only home. But Vex hasn't had a home in so long and after all she's been through she deserves a safer life. Percy can't be the one to take that from her.
    So they break up. And the following week is possibly the worst they've had in years.

    The break up fic nobody asked for.
    It's like that Christmas story with the boy who sells his pocket watch for a hair comb and the girl who sells her hair for a pocket watch chain? Only it's shitty and they're sad the whole time because they didn't talk about their problems because they knew if they talked about it they wouldn't be able to follow through with it.

    Summary

    "Be with me when I lie down; you promised me this in an earlier life." –Mirabai

     

    (Beds are not inherently sexual. There is nothing torrid or amorous about a bed. This is what Caleb is telling himself, anyway, when he agrees to share his with Jester.)

    Summary

    or; “Oh No, I Like My Wife’s Boyfriend”

    Yeza Brenatto is a creature of infinite anxiety, but he’s not blind. He can see how much Veth loves Caleb. He can see how much Caleb loves her back. And he can also see that Caleb is really attractive. But it’s not like he’s not going to do anything about that…

    Summary

    When the tithe collector comes, they pay taxes as if they are all married to each other. It's easier than saying that Caleb is taking advantage of their kindness and that when Veth found him in a river and he almost melted her face off.

    (AU where Caleb meets the Brenattos soon after leaving the asylum and hides with them in plain sight)

    Summary

    Effie composes herself because she will be damned if she causes a scene. This doesn’t concern her, she reminds herself. What he does or does not when cameras aren’t pointed at him isn’t her problem. Who he does or does not…

    They have an arrangement, not a relationship.
