    Summary

    After beating Lucien, the Mighty Nein leave together, and Essek gets sent back home, alone, afraid, and being kept in the dark about the problems his friends are having. However, when he is told that killing the main representative of the city's wishes didn't stop its influence over certain people, he is determined to help.

    "Essek is shaking, his carefully built façade slipping away. Caleb touches his wrist, softly, then holds his arm. He keeps using physical contact when Essek stops hiding what he is feeling, and he does not know if the driving force is pity or a wish to manipulate him. Or maybe something else entirely."

    Summary

    "“No, wait, fuck that,” Beauregard says. “Let me see if I understand. You two had a weird emotional thing in high school where you held hands way too much―”

    “We also kissed.”

    “What the fuck.” She doesn’t let him answer. “And then you didn’t see each other for some years, and then you saw each other during Christmas and said ‘we can keep fucking, no strings attached, but let’s put our Christmas lights together in a box, I’m sure they won’t get tangled together’. And so you two kept fucking, but only during the holidays."

    Essek takes another sip of his shot glass of wine. “Essentially.”"

     

    Maybe visiting his old town is only an excuse Essek uses to see Caleb.

    Summary

    Mages can be utter bastards. Essek would know, being something of a bastard himself. But leaving a trap that can splinter a person's intellect, leaving them frightened and utterly helpless, one that would last for centuries, just waiting for an unlucky passerby? That's a particularly Aeoran kind of awful.

    Summary

    Something is very wrong with Essek. He has far too many limbs, is sporting claws and sharp teeth, hisses and growls, and can probably fit inside Caleb’s component pouch. But Caleb is certain he can reverse this strange Aeorian magic. Really, what kind of wizard would he be if he couldn't? It just takes some elbow grease and hard work.

    Summary

    Essek, the master of time magic itself, had never met a person with such an ability. “What time is it now?” he asked to sate his curiosity.

    Caleb didn’t even hesitate. “8:49.”

    “You know it to the minute,” Essek murmured. This man and his beautiful brain. It had been so long since he’d felt such a way, desiring someone in any capacity, and he found himself wanting to know everything that Caleb thought, to understand what made him tick. Caleb knew the exact time at all times, just from his mind alone, and something about that was incredibly sexy.
