    Summary

    On that fateful night everything goes wrong: Crepus has no chance to react when Diluc rushes to protect him, has no courage to intervene to not harm his son instead. He doesn't need to: the beast is the only thing that flees that night, but the price Diluc pays for it is way too high.
    Four years later Barbatos hears a terrible prayer upon waking up. "Please let me die."

    Summary

    Freedom.

    Such a fickle word. Too many connotations, and yet no hard definition. Many say you cannot put a price on freedom, that it's an ideal. Yet others know that such ideals do indeed have a toll to be paid. Xiao had always struggled with such a concept.

    For what could equal freedom?

    Summary

    It's been 350 years since the disaster that killed most of Teyvat happened.

    Now, Liyue is flourishing. With new technology and better building styles, Liyue couldn't be better.

    Xiao couldn't be worse. All of the Archons are dead-- including Venti, the love of his life.

    Even though it's been so long, and everyone marks him as being unable to move on; every night when Xiao goes to bed he is haunted by the same words over and over again...

    "Xiao, when all of this is over, you'll smile for me, right? Oh, you don't have to if you're uncomfortable! I'd just really like to be peacefully with you for all of eternity, you know? Promise me! We'll be together forever!"

    All his former friends have had children, died, and their children have died and had children.

    Oh, and, there's also Xiao's adopted son. A great time he's having, for sure.

    Summary

    Is an Archon, a worldly entity considered as a god, allowed to wish? To pray for a requiescat of oneself, to strip himself off of his godhood, to live among the mortals in solace while letting himself succumb to the haunting memories gnawing on his heart until his eventual death?

    Would Rex Lapis be allowed such? To taste the freedom of not shouldering the burden of the world? And Aether, the blond neighbor of his, could he be the salvation he’s waiting for all this time?

    Summary

     “Xiao...?” Ganyu repeated, her voice palpable with surprise as her lilac eyes widened ever so slightly at the mention of the name. “He’s going to be coming here?

     Even though it had been centuries since the two of them had last spoken, the image of those lonely cat-like golden eyes— illuminated with the rest of the soft child-like features of his face under the silver glow of the full moon— still found itself strongly engraved in her memory.

    Was there any chance that he even wanted to see her again? Even after all this time?

    A delicate hand subconsciously made its way over her heart at the thought, a saddened sunset hued lilac gaze turning down onto the sea of clouds below.

     A part of her couldn’t help but wonder… if bringing herself to face him again was just another part of her ‘homecoming’?

    Summary

    Ajax doesn’t believe in the Archons, he believed they were lies told to stupid humans who have equally stupid powers gifted to them by their so called gods.

    What he didn’t know was just how poisoned that crumbling island in the sky actually was.

    When he meets a woman with two masks on her hip he didn’t know what he was getting himself into...he certainly didn’t know that him swearing his life to protect the King ultimately mean he would have to turn against his Tsaritsa.

    But the coldness is similar and so he knew deep down that she had always known and perhaps even Zhongli knew to.

    But in reality who cared about archons? He just wanted to fight and to serve the once and future King because fuck archons am I right?

    Summary

    Zhongli believes his time had come in this modern age, but below the highways of busy Liyue, there is an eventual struck in his heart that he yearned for so long. From a soft touch of a hand, he never expects a reunion that will go in a way he can't predict.

    The problem is: Guizhong is not the same Guizhong during the Archon War.

    Born with her parents died at her young age, she isolates herself inside the small circle of relatives, and Havria & Shenhe as her friends. Her strong vision is believed to be linked to her fate in this world, having no one to feel close to until she meets a stranger in an incident. As she learns more about this so-called "previous life," Guizhong finds a valuable trait as a weapon in a looming war.

    Indeed, after different bodies and different times, they finally meet again, but that journey will not be easy. Perhaps there is even a big twist along the way.

    Summary

    He supposes the regrets only exist to stab his own incompetency at being a mortal’s partner. However, Zhongli promises – no, resolves – to be more human, to be enough, to be more attentive, to be more-

    If only he can see those cerulean eyes again. He grips Ajax’s hand tighter. He thinks that time has never moved so cruelly and heavily.

    Summary

    “You have somewhere to be?” Zhongli says. He doesn’t wait for the answer before handing both Venti and Xiao neat rows of heavy red envelopes, embossed in gold and ink. “Please give these to the children.”

    “Tradition?” Venti says.

    “Tradition,” Zhongli confirms.

    “Cool,” Childe says, earning glares from all three of them.

    Summary

    Some ganqing stuff that you can read while pooping, waiting for your original resin to replenish, questioning your life choices, waiting for Keqing to come home or waiting for Ganyu’s banner to return…

    1: the fear that comes from having a longer life span than the person you’re in love with
    2: “It's a shame that we're not soulmates ‘cause if I didn't know better…”
    3: It’s finally here, the end of the f***ing world!
