    Summary

    In another universe, the Mighty Nein never returned the Beacon and became Heroes of the Dynasty. Years later, Caleb has retired from his adventuring days to become a librarian for the Cobalt Soul, and one day he receives the visit of a fellow librarian from the Marble Tomes, a soft-spoken drow man named Essek.

    But maybe not everything is as it seems.

    Summary

    In which the Nein take a break, a real break, just for a while. And while some build relationships with each other and take some time off, for the first time in a long time, Caleb feels left out. On a whim, he decides to find Essek, to maybe fix whatever has been broken, learn more dunamancy maybe, and maybe something more.

    ---
    AU: In this timeline, the tomb takers arc didn’t start, and the Nein enjoys a much earned time off from adventuring after Rumblecusp, at least for a while. Rating might go up in later chapters.

    Summary

    Don’t...offer me any solace.”

    In part, it’s the off-handed way Essek says it. Like it’s a foregone conclusion that he’s undeserving of comfort, undeserving of compassion. That he should be left to wallow and drown in his guilt, for whatever miserable span of a life he has left to him.

    And Caleb knows- he knows how that feels. That was him, not a year ago.

    Summary

    While on a mission for Master Ikithon, Bren receives a letter from a mysterious Dynasty stranger offering a tenuous olive branch.

    Summary

    New Arc: The Soltryce Sting, or Caleb Widogast finds himself in the precarious position of having to plan a heist.

    The Cerberus Assembly has the Beacon. Part-time librarian, member of the Kryn Resistance, and possible traitor Essek Thelyss would rather that they not have the Beacon. Caleb is interested in screwing over the Cerberus Assembly for other reasons.

     

    It's going to take a rag-tag team of unpredictable allies for either of them to get what they want (but what do they *really* want?)

    Summary

    Essek Theylss is born on a cold, wet night in winter, and named Essek at random. They don't think he's a new soul, and they won't find out he is an unconsecuted (and therefore fresh) being until almost his twentieth year; his mother has him with the intent to keep great-grandfather in the family, in both body and soul. He has the little thumbprint on his wrist, though, bright orange, so light it almost glows. Nobody knows what to do with it. It certainly doesn't wash off, no matter how hard his mother, his aunts, and his nursemaids try.

    Summary

    Caleb’s blush faded, and any trace of slump disappeared. “A couple of weeks ago I sent Yussa a letter like yours. When I didn’t get a response, Jester messaged him. What that didn’t get a response, I headed over there myself, only to find that Yussa isn’t taking any audiences. I believe he may be in some trouble.”
    “So? He is a wizard of some capabilities.”
    Caleb winced. “Ja, but Yussa is also the one who’s keeping watch of Halas’s imprisonment. He also has the Happy Fun Ball, sorry, the Archmage Bane. Either of them would be a problem, but Yussa has both and has already shown that he doesn’t make the best decisions with these items.”

    Otherwise known as Essek is a disaster gay, just really good at hiding it, Yussa is trying so hard not to get attached to all the mortals, Halas is eternally screaming in his ruby, and there is probably a plot

    Summary

    “Pretense and allusion are entertaining, and, in most cases by my experience, far more comfortable, but they only carry so far.”

    Ah, perhaps his guess was off.

    “What is it you’d like to say, friend?”

    “I... truthfully, do not know. I haven’t the words for it.”

    “Then show me.”

    Summary

    How quick is your mind, I wonder? I look forward to finding out.

    Essek Thelyss figured out a way to travel through time and bend reality to his will. Bren Ermendrud, Volstrucker for the Dwendalian Empire, acquired the Shadowhand’s notes, and led history in a different direction.

    Only one reality can survive. And yet they circle, caught in each other's orbits.

    A very loose this is how you lose the time war AU. No real spoilers for This is How You Lose the Time War. Just here for the time travelling assassin epistalory fic.
