One of my favorite little headcanons that I think about a lot: Imagine Caleb becoming someone trans people come to for at-cost transition care and Essek as someone who goes to trans folks to help them since he moves around. That's part of how each of them works to atone and do good in the … Continue reading Fiction: Widogast’s Transition Care, Post CR C2 Ep141
I want to give some possible perspective on Essek and Caleb's relationship as it stands in CR C2 Ep140 before the grand finale. Whatever happens with them romantically, it's going to come from a specific place that needs understanding. Essek said he hasn't really had friends before. While we have no confirmation, the makes me … Continue reading Analysis: Caleb’s Relationship to Essek – CR C2 Ep140
The two flattering exchanges between Caduceus and Caleb caught my ear as much as anyone. There's clearly some stronger, closer relationship forming there.

The subtext … Continue reading Transcript: Taliesin gives Molly’s pronouns, Talks Machina for C2 Ep 01 0:06:07
Hi, I really appreciate your post about Molly and writing him as nonbinary and using his proper pronouns. As a nonbinary person, I use her/she pronouns. I have many people tell me I am not truly nonbinary because I don't use they/them and it is very frustrating and upsetting. Using people's preferred pronouns honestly isn't … Continue reading AskBox: Appreciate your post about Molly’s proper pronouns
I’ll write about this in more depth later, but this needs to be said now: If you’re writing Critical Role fic about Molly being nonbinary, you still really need to use his proper pronouns. He explicitly gave them to us. You don’t ever for any reason get to misuse someone's pronouns. There are nonbinary people … Continue reading Use Molly’s correct pronouns
