    Summary

    “Allow me to make it up to you?” Essek heard himself ask, suddenly too soft, too genuine, all without his permission.

    Caleb cocked his head to the side just so, his eyes searching, lips caught parted halfway to whatever he’d been about to say before those words came tumbling out of Essek’s mouth. “How do you suggest?” he asked, that low, faintly rasping quality returning to his voice, his eyes catching the shifting light beautifully.

    What had he just told Caleb about the dangers of acting on impulse? Essek swallowed, his mouth dry suddenly. He held his hand out to Caleb, not trusting himself to speak. Wordlessly, a smile flickering at his lips, Caleb took his hand. Essek pulled him up to his feet.

    Summary

    Essek took a moment to polish the door placard reading "Professor Widogast - Dunamancy" before entering his office. He took a deep breath, inhaling the scent of old books, aging parchment, and mahogany. While he enjoyed the peaceful summer at home, he was greatly looking forward to some more liveliness. Soon the Academy's halls will be filled with laughter, chatter, and the magical energy only conjured by eager, bright minds.

    --

    Long after the battle with Lucien and a living city, Essek's life had calmed to a comfortable routine. He enjoyed teaching young minds at Soltryce, catching up with friends and their growing families, and caring for his garden and cats. He was content, he had a good life, despite nagging from his friends to get out more and meet someone.

    When a new transmutation professor starts at Soltryce, Essek is immediately reminded of his own cat-loving, book-hoarding, brilliant wizard. A bond forms and Essek begins to wonder if he's finally ready to move on and take the next step in his long life.

    Summary

    One regret Caleb was never able to resolve was that his life was so brief compared to Essek's.

    But what if that wasn't the case anymore?

    Maybe the Luxon priests don't know as much about how the beacons work as they think they do.
