    Summary

    When Bren Aldric Eremendrud was a boy, whenever he felt small or lonely, he’d look up at the stars, wondering if there was life up there. Turns out, he was looking in the wrong direction. When alien life entered our world it was from the deep beneath the Lucidian Ocean, a fissure between two tectonic plates. A portal between the dimensions, a breach.

    To fight the Kaiju wreaking havoc on the world, mankind created monsters of their own. The Jaeger Program was implemented. Jaeger. Zemnian for hunter. Monsters designed to put these otherworldly abominations back in their place.

    One pilot couldn’t handle the neural load to pilot the Jaegers alone, so a two pilot system was implemented, one on the left side, one on the right. The two pilots had to link their minds to work in perfect synchronous harmony to ensure that the mechs could run properly. With technology being advanced from cooperation and a worldwide ceasefire to stop this problem, the Pan Lucidian Defense Corps was born.

    Summary

    Floor nine of the Sehanine Building at Rexxentrum Academy is where the school houses anyone they don't quite know what to do with. Anyone who marked down anything but "male" or "female" on their surveys, anyone who has a tumultuous past, anyone they might want to keep an eye on. Caleb and Molly start out a tenuous friendship as neighbors on floor nine, neither aware of the colorful dreams the other shares with them each night.

    But it's probably just a coincidence that Caleb dreams of a purple haired, horned creature that looks a lot like Mollymauk. And that Molly dreams of a boy consumed by flames. Right?

    Summary

    “Would you have, really? Helped me?”

    “Without a moment’s hesitation.”

    At that, Caleb releases a long, shuddering breath.

    “You’d break the world for me.”

    “I can’t imagine anyone more deserving.”

    AKA the wizards sleep and talk after T-Dock and Essek learns more about Caleb’s past.

    Summary

    Maybe it was the way his eyes sharpened as he looked around, mostly towards the ceiling, or how he stood taller, the way he squared his shoulders. Whatever it had been, it instantly worried him. He stood from his chair, just as the man zeroed in on something and began to walk, gait too long and hurried to be natural, one hand deep inside his coat, completely concealed.

    Something deep inside Fjord, roiling in his gut, screamed at him to move.

    In a single, fluid, practiced movement, the man lifted his hand. It blackened and flaked and ignited with a snap, bright with arcane flame and energy Fjord had only ever heard about in stories and urban legends.

    And then an alarm went off. And the sprinklers began raining down.

    Summary

    Caleb wakes up on Rumblecusp with no memories of who he is or how he got there. The people around him seem to care for him greatly, and he wants to do his best to help them, even when they fail to return his memories with their divine magic.

    Many things are confusing, but none more so than what appears to be his personal journal, written in a cipher he can no longer remember. Perhaps the handsome drow his friends brought him to in Rosohna may be of help.

    Summary

    When Bren murdered his parents, he broke.

    When he found out that they were never traitors, something deep within him, something primal and arcane, snapped like an overstrung violin string, sharp, dissonant, and echoing throughout his body in strange vibrations.

    One moment he was curled up on the cold tile floor of the Vergesson Sanatorium, the next Bren was in a strange field of what might have been wheat, flowing in the light breeze. After telling a strange purple satyr a fake name, he became Caleb Widogast and was thrust into a world heavy with magic, full of fae, and enough support to start to overcome his past.

    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

    There are still nights when it happens. When he wakes up shaking or sobbing or scratching or some combination of the three, usually still seeing smoke or the sneering visage of his former teacher. They’re infrequent and he doesn’t give them a thought unless they’re actively happening, but they’re no less rattling each time and leave him disconnected from his mind and body for hours on end.

    But, he never wakes up alone.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of their final battle with Lucian in the floating flesh city of Cognouza, Essek has some thinking to do. He and Caleb have been dancing around their feelings for months, and with the world no longer in immediate danger, it's time to face up to them.

    (basically me trying to manifest a canon shadowgast scenario half an hour before the finale airs >.<)

    Summary

    Healing is never linear but it is healing just the same. And Caleb Widogast is getting better whether he wants to or not.

    A College AU about growing as people and figuring shit out, without a whole lot of actual college.

    Because sometimes when you're not fighting for your lives in a mineshaft full of gnolls it takes a little longer to come together as a family.
