    Summary

    There's something in Caleb's dreams. It wants him to know that he's not alone. It wants him to know that he'll never be alone again.

    Elves don't dream, so all Essek can do is watch.

    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

    “How is this week’s road trip going?” Caleb asks. He has been making subtle comments about Essek’s new-found friendship with the Mighty Nein, lately. It might be because he knows Essek has reasons to try to fix their relationship, or maybe just because it warms him up to see his friends spending time with his boyfriend.

    “Quieter than expected,” Essek says. “How is your day going?”

    He launches on a story about Jester almost burning down the curtains which barely makes sense to Essek, but it makes him smile. It is calming. Cute. “So now I have to clean the windows. I can’t wait until we can finally move in together.”

     

    Essek wants to propose to Caleb, but his relationship with the Mighty Nein has been fragile ever since they discovered he was lying to them. He gets punched, soaked and thrown into a lake, but he fixes the relationship.

    By the time the Mighty Nine emerge from the Happy Fun Ball, the King is dead, two members of the Assembly have been executed for the crime, and, in the hopes of ending the war, Essek Thelyss has been engaged to one of their replacements - the Archmage Caleb Widogast.

    Summary

    “Yussa, I’m just a route setter.”

    Yussa gave Essek a strange look, and, even from Emon, their glare made Essek shift uncomfortably. Their golden eyes flickered with something like frustration—and surprise.

    “You’re the only person in Nicodranas aside from myself who has competed internationally, and you’re the only person in the entire Menagerie Coast who has won gold at multiple World Cups. What could possibly be confusing about this?”

    “I didn’t come here to train Olympic dropouts, I came here to escape that life,” said Essek.

    Summary

    A whine escaped between increasingly frantic breaths. The pain was immense, Essek’s body shaking as it fought not to surrender to shock. He could barely feel the hands on his chin anymore as the fire tore through his nerves.

    “This could all be over,” The man said again. “If you just cooperate.”

    Essek forced his eyes open, hoping he sounded tougher than he felt as he stared the man down. “You won’t get anything from me.”

    -- -- -- -- --

    Essek Thelyss was born and raised in the Rohsona, capital city of the Kryn Dynasty, but left in recent months to travel with a ragtag group of adventurers that call themselves the Mighty Nine...for some reason, despite the fact that there were only six of them. Regardless, Beauregard Lionett, Veth Brenatto, Jester Lavorre, Fjord Stone, Caduceus Clay, and Yasha Nydoorin have been his traveling companions for a while now. However, his former status as a high-ranking figure in the Dynasty makes him a rather favorable target for Scourgers, especially now that his only defense is his group of six friends and not an entire country.

    Now he’s been captured, and he can only hope that his friends are looking for him.

    Summary

    Jester thinks faking her own kidnapping to get her dad to spend time with her is her best scheme yet. Essek isn't so sure, but what kind of friend would he be if he didn't help out? How was he supposed to know she'd get abducted for real?

    Summary

    “Here you are at last,” Caleb says quietly, his eyes shining in the moonlight.

    “Here I am,” Essek agrees, ducking his head, glancing around at the rest of the Nein and their palpable, beaming joy. “If you’ll have me.”

    Summary

    It wasn’t consecution.

    How could it be? Essek wasn’t consecuted. Even if he had been, consecution didn’t work like this. He’d know if it did; he’d spent years searching for any scrap of information about what was happening to him.

    He found nothing.

    -*-

    Every time Essek dies, he wakes up on the day he meets the Mighty Nein. He's tried everything to avoid, subvert or kill them, but so far nothing has worked. He's already died fifteen times. He refuses to die a sixteenth.

    Summary

    Essek has a long time to mourn his friends.

    He makes sure he isn't the only who remembers them.

    And he tries to be happy.

     

    Starring Essek as Eliza Hamilton because this a song fic. Except Alexander is all of the Mighty Nein.

    And Cad is Angelica.

    And Founding Fathers=Heroes of Exandria

     

    Suprisingly this meshes together relatively well. In my opinion. But I wrote it so I suppose that would be my opinion (cross posted on tumblr).

    Summary

    Essek doesn’t process it at first. It’s not until hours later as they sit recovering in Caduceus’ family home, gathered around a large natural oak table in the kitchen of the Blooming Grove, that it begins to hit him. 

     Jester had died.

     Caleb had died.

    A speculative exploration of how Essek might cope with the events of Episode 140. Pure Hurt/Comfort.
