    Summary

    A decade after fleeing the Empire, Shadowhand Caleb of Den Thelyss has positioned himself within the centre of Kryn Dynasty politics as trusted advisor to the Bright Queen, due to his pursuit of the lost Beacon that awoke him from madness so many years ago. However, his recovery mission is cut short by a ragtag group of adventurers arriving in the Queen's Court, led by a familiar drow and bearing the very Beacon that he's spent his new life searching for.

    OR: A role-reversal AU with Caleb as Shadowhand and Essek as an adventuring wizard whose past threatens his every move.

    Summary

    “You seek my nature. It is a lonely endeavor. Would you like to join me on this path?”

    “Yes.”

    After a thousand years, a divine champion awakes in a lightless cave above Port Damali with little memory to speak of and a beacon in his hands.

    Even as he struggles to piece the past together and process what he has lost while he slept, the future demands he answer for the crimes of his elders. It offers little in return, but perhaps there are fragments of possibility awaiting him.

    Summary

    "Caleb was tired. This wasn’t unusual, of course. He was almost always tired, especially after coming to Zadash. He was alone here. Well, not alone, but they weren’t with him anymore and that was close enough."

    In which Caleb has a lot of trauma to work through, Nott worries about Caleb, and the Mighty Nein is A Lot To Handle (tm).

    The first work in a shamelessly self indulgent, stupidly elaborate High School AU. Basically, the Mighty Nein are shoved into an after school program together. Slow burn bonding, angst, and probably cuddling to follow.
    Title from Noah Kahan's song "Please".

    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.

    (also known as the peak of self indulgent fic)

    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

    An idea of what the life of the Mighty Nein might look like after they retire as an adventuring party to each pursue their more individual hopes and dreams. Their lives are by no means boring despite the change in lifestyle, but they still make time to come together to see one another. Lots of cute domestic fluff because it's what they deserve.
