Beau Would Like to Rage - Violetrayofsunshine - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
While on a mission for the Gentleman, the Mighty Nein are after a band of thieves and traffickers again and it reopens some emotional wounds that never healed for some of them. Everyone's favorite monk refuses to talk about her feelings. She engages in some cathartic ass-kicking instead.

AKA: Beau and Caleb learning to help each other through their PTSD [6167]

[Team Human taking care of each other gives me life.]

A Helping Claw - sabinelagrande - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
"I'm gonna be straight with you, because you're the kind of person who appreciates that," Fjord says. "You might get five minutes in and realize you hate it. But I think you like to help people, and you like to figure out how they work so you can figure out what they need. I think you'll find it satisfying. If you don't, you can stop whenever you want."

"I'll give it a shot," Caduceus says, and Fjord feels immense relief. [2310]

[Possibly the first time I've ever seen someone write non-sexual painplay? I can definitely see this happening.]

"Caleb, you're up."

"Am I within thirty feet of that thing?"

"Oh yeah, easily. I'd say twenty feet to target the centre of it, fifteen feet for the supporting arch."

"Ja, okay, so, I fumble in my pocket for a bit of copper wire and I cast Message, and I say, "Fjord, look after them." And then as a bonus action, I cast it again, and I say "Nott, take care." And I step into the portal." [3433]

Remember, you are not alone - sockablock - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
The Mighty Nein bring Molly back without any memories, but in True Molly Fashion, he decides not to tell them. [2892]
Nott tugs on his sleeve and asks, “Are you sure you’re okay to travel? If you don’t want to go all the way out, yet, we could wait a little longer.”

Molly takes a shot in the dark.

“When have I ever been someone who liked waiting around?”

Long Night - Mightybignein (Blueberryshortcake) - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
Caduceus found himself out of his depth in this world outside his graveyard. He knew the things he knew. If someone was injured heal them, if someone was dead lay them to rest in the appropriate way. If your party was split and your wizard was feverish, and there might be murderers and thieves not far off, and all your spells were diminished how do you protect yourself and your friends? [2858]

Deprivation - SETI_fan - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
“Percy.”

“Hm?” He turned toward Vex’s voice warily, hoping he was looking directly at her as he intended.

There was no sound for a moment and the fear warred briefly with confusion. He was about to ask what was going on when he felt a vague sense of motion near his face. He blinked, bringing his free hand up to investigate and encountered what a brief feel-around revealed to be a slender hand. (Vex’s?)

A hand he realized had likely been waving in front of his face.

“Shit,” Vex breathed. “You can’t see anything, can you?”

Fuck. Embarrassment crept up his neck, but he tried for a note of blasé humor instead. “I can see a rather impressive amount of impenetrable darkness.”

“Wait, so how long have you been following us blindly?” Keyleth asked.

Since the day I met you. “Pretty much since we entered the mound.”

He didn’t need to be able to see to have a pretty good idea of the incredulous looks on their faces. [4065]

all i want is nothing more - thismagichour - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
Nott isn't a child, so she doesn't know why she wants to be held so badly, but she does anyway. Fortunately, Caduceus is there to get it, because god knows Caleb's too dense to figure it out himself. [1370]

[Not knowing what 'touch-starved' means doesn't prevent you from feeling it.]

a stained glass variation of the truth - madnessiseverything - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
“Did it hurt?” Jester asks, her voice high-pitched with excitement. Mollymauk grins, teeth on display.

“Just the right amount.”

“Like, on the neck seems pretty fuckin badass,” Beauregard cuts in, “but that looks like a lot of work and pain.”

And Caleb doesn’t know what in the gods’ name moves him to answer in Mollymauk’s stead. “After a short while you grow used to the pain.” He notices the heads of the three loudest members of their rag-tag group snapping up to look at him, but keeps his eyes focused on the last swig of ale in his cup. Scheiße, how many has he downed since they came in here? “It’s really the time that takes a toll on you.” [7072]

They take Caleb out of the cell again. Beau swears and spits and tries to punch one of them, while Caleb gives her this Look - one that says **stop making yourself a target** as clear as if he’d used a spell to whisper it in her ear - and doesn’t resist. [2244]

[Beau's pissed that Caleb is taking all the punches. Caleb just wants her to understand that this is his favored terrain.]

Quiet Comfort - Angel Ascending (angel_in_ink) - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
“Is there anything I can do for you?” Caduceus asks the question knowing that there might not be an answer. Caleb is the type who rarely asks for what he needs even when he has a voice. He asks it regardless, as he had asked the mourners who had come to the grove, as he would ask any of his traveling companions, his friends. He remembers all the times he’s seen Nott and Caleb relaxing, one leaning into the other. “I’m very good to lean against.” [1787]

A Feast Fit for Heroes - CatKing_Catkin - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
When you're traveling with the same group of people for a while, it's important to get to know them. One by one as the weeks go by, Jester asks all her friends the same very important question - namely, "What is your favorite food?"

Everyone has a different answer, and that gives her a lot to think about with regards to them and herself.

But it's all for the sake of one day putting a very important plan into action. [7893]

Two things happen in very quick succession. The cat opens its eyes, which are red and pupil-less, and just as Caleb's half-asleep mind is starting to put two and two together, Beau comes barreling into his room.

"Aw fuck, is that where he went?" she says. "Caleb, I swear I tried to stop him."

"Stop whom from what exactly," says Caleb, who is pretty sure he already knows. [1224]

“Is it good?” she asks, poking at it dubiously with her own fork. Jester nods, mouth full and Yasha shrugs, taking a small bite. It’s not the best-looking thing she’s ever seen, but it tastes delicious. “Wow,” she breathes. “This is better than rats.”

Jester’s face scrunches up and she squawks at Yasha, indignant. “Chocolate cake is WAY better than rats Yasha.”

“That’s what I said!”

“But… wait, HAVE YOU NEVER HAD CHOCOLATE CAKE BEFORE?” she hollers. [1056]

The Tale Of The Amazing Technicolor Gravecoat - Angel Ascending (angel_in_ink) - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
Adelina Colfer sized up the crowd at the Dancing Deer with a practiced eye as she took a gulp of ale to quench her parched throat. The bard had already told two stories to the packed common room, and had earned more than enough coin to stop for the night if she wished. Still, she hated to leave it at just two stories. Boots came in a pair, and socks, and pants, but she felt stories were best told in threes or not at all. Her audience, patrons driven to seek shelter during the snowstorm outside still looked attentive, and it was still early enough in the evening that no one was yet terribly drunk or looked like they were about to fall asleep. But what story to tell?

“Has anyone here heard the tale of the amazing technicolor gravecoat?” Adelina asked, her voice carrying all the way to the back of the room.

A bard tells a tale in a crowded tavern, not knowing that a group of renowned adventurers are listening.... [2380]

dry drowning - ashinan - Critical Role (Web Series) [Archive of Our Own]
Fjord isn't used to comfort after a nightmare. Caleb frets over Fjord drowning on dry land. [5318]
They’re on second watch. The torrent of water darkens the night to near impossible visibility. Even with Fjord’s superior eyesight, he can barely make out anything beyond their ring of tents. Caleb shivers, bundling Frumpkin into the fold of his coat and yanking his sleeves down over his fingers. Fjord quirks a brow, gesturing with his cloaked shoulder in solidarity, and Caleb ducks his head with a smile. Fjord chuckles before continuing his watch.

The background hum of rain masks his Patron’s arrival.
