    Summary

    "Why'd you have to bring the geek squad here?"
    Before Jennifer can rebuttal in any way, Spencer speaks up.
    "Um, for it to be a ‘squad’ there’d have to be at least four of me and, evidently, I am just one person. So your… Insult? Makes you look pretty stupid.”
    “Derek, you just got told off by a ninth-grader in terms I’m pretty sure you don’t understand.”
    “Emily Prentiss, local lesbian and resident cool one of the group.”
    “As JJ said, Derek is an ass but he’ll warm up to you eventually. It is great to meet you, Spencer, Penelope won’t shut up about the ‘extremely smart guy’ in her AP math class.”
    “Derek has a sweet side, you just need to unlock it!”
    “You did not just let a toothpick call me stupid.”

    Summary

    Essek's tone is academic, clinical, cold. “It would be pointless to deny that I am attracted to you. And I wouldn’t object if what happened last night would happen again. But I would be grateful if we could keep it between us.”

    There’s a beat, then Caleb nods. “I’m fine with keeping it quiet and casual.”

    Or how cold, ruthless and lonely Essek Thelyss (a brilliant student with a secret) accidentally makes some friends and falls in love: a Shadowgast college AU.

    Summary

    He knew he was doomed. There was a sharpness in her gaze that only appeared when she was gearing herself up for battle. Tempers flared. And maybe… maybe he wanted to be caught. Maybe he wanted it to be his own people who decided his fate. Maybe he was just… Tired.

    Summary

    You cannot fall for him, he scolded himself. You are too smart for that!

    And yet he had to admit that he’d come to cherish the younger wizard’s presence. He’d taken a liking to the tea he always brought – rosemary, good for concentration, prepared by Caduceus. He enjoyed the subtle sounds, the calm breathing, the occasional hum of concentration or realization, the rustling of pages flipped by someone else’s fingers. He’d picked up on a few details while stealing glances from behind his book. He now knew that Caleb wrinkled his nose when transcribing a spell, that he liked to rest his chin on his wrist, lips hidden behind his knuckles, as he looked into the distance, that he sometimes bit his lower lip while reading, that he rubbed his temples with his fingertips whenever he got frustrated. But his favourite sight by far was when after a few hours spent hunched over a desk, Caleb rose to stretch his stiffened muscles.

     

    Essek struggles to maintain his sanity while navigating the tense political landscape and the complexities of friendship. And then there's Caleb Widogast, intriguing, endearing and potentially dangerous. Especially since he seems to be hiding something...
