    Summary

    “I was a mortal, once. After all this time, I still cannot fathom why I ascended to godhood and achieved immortality when I had died by descending to the bottom of a frozen lake.”

    He ceased to be human, far in the past.

    He accepts it with a heavy heart. It is a burden he resigns himself to shoulder until the end of time arrives.

    As he remains incognito, he bears witness to the history he desires not to be a part of. Nevertheless, he fights to survive, to outlive the slain gods that perish in the gruelling bloodshed.

    Then, he dutifully stirs havoc in the name of the Archon he is forced to serve.

    Although his heart is hardened by the trials and tribulations he has endured, he finds himself not completely desensitised by the ordeals he has faced over his everlasting lifetime.

    Alternatively:

    A divinised Tartaglia still seeks the thrill of battle, even if he, deep down, desires to rest. He finds solace in a certain Geo Archon.

    Summary

    Zhongli’s eyes widened, instinctively stepping out of the way as something darted past him. The odd entity carried the scent of rainfall, its body lightly glowing like an illuminated sea. The streets of Liyue Harbor were filled with panicked cries.

    No one could gain a better view as the thing leaped into the water, vanishing upon impact. Zhongli approached, peering down upon the water’s surface. There wasn’t even a trace of that creature being there in the first place.

    “... What was that?”

    In which Childe isn’t completely human, is nearly 200 years old, could probably become an archon if he wanted, is a “part-time” Harbinger, and eventually ends up moving in with Zhongli.

    Meanwhile, Zhongli has never seen a being quite like Childe in all of his years of living. Childe is left wondering why the Geo Archon looks at him like he’s the most interesting thing in the world.

    Summary

    “What is the meaning of this?” Zhongli glanced up at an irritated La Signora. Within her hand was the Gnosis, but…

    It was merely the top half of the Gnosis — which should’ve been whole in the first place. Instead, it was split in two with the location of the second half unknown. Not even the Tsaritsa had warned the Harbingers of such a possibility.

    “This was not part of the contract.”

    “I said I would give you my Gnosis and I have.”

    She glared at Zhongli. “Where’s the other half?”

    Zhongli remained silent.

    In which the Geo Archon isn’t just one divine entity, but two. Zhongli and Childe wander the streets of Liyue Harbor all while sharing a split Gnosis and working on their Archon duties as if they are one — in their own unique way.

    It ends up changing quite a lot of things really.

    Summary

    Zhongli had become… a yellow blob. His shock was further accented by the movement of two feelers on top of his head that looked a lot like ears. The ex-archon couldn’t believe this. The stress of losing his gnosis had turned his human body into a mini Seelie.

    Summary

    As a child of Liyue, Xiangling is raised on stories of the adepti. Her mother tells her these stories each night before she goes to sleep, speaking of the Archon War and reading from old books that are apparently family heirlooms.

    She carries these stories with her as she goes foraging for ingredients in Jueyun Karst many years later.

    Yet, for all that she wanders into the land of the adepti, the first time she meets one is not amidst the mystical mountains, but rather a place so mundane as the Wangshu Inn.

    Summary

    Childe has heard that the eyes are the windows to the soul. It often leaves him staring at his reflection, knowing what lingers within his mind, and wondering what his eyes say about him.

    His own voice echoed in his head. “Ajax, we gotta go or we’ll miss the boat to Liyue. The Tsaritsa won’t be happy.”

    Childe reluctantly pulled himself away from the mirror. Attached to his waist were a pair of Visions, Hydro and Electro, but none of them a Delusion. He—They don’t need one. “I know, Tartaglia. I know.”

    In which Childe gained and bonded with a sentient split personality as a result of his time in the Abyss. However, he doesn’t let this interrupt his duties as a Harbinger, and should his resolve ever falter, Childe trusts Tartaglia to finish the job for them both.

    “Ajax, if there’s ever a task you can’t bear, leave it to me.”

    Summary

    Everything hurts.

    Childe groaned, trying to figure out what had happened, how he had got there.

    He had been fighting Lumine in the Golden House, and defeated her, then…

    Then Zhongli came.

    Summary

    They're sitting on the docks of Liyue harbor. Summer sun bearing upon them, scalding lashes. Enough to smear the horizon into flickering mirages. Reflecting glass on the ocean blue. As gleaming as the waves are, Childe has his gaze seized by the man beside him. His tongue, nimble, and salacious, on the frozen popsicle. Trailing to catch the melting sugar. Before dragging, tantalizingly slow, with what Childe’ll describe as a deliberate temptation, to the tip. Wrapping his lips again, over the frosty treat. And Childe swallows the knot in his throat.

    “Do you always eat ice cream like that?”

    Summary

    Yet Zhongli touches him with such gentleness that Childe feels as if he is being blessed by the one he is meant to wound. Childe could kill him as he reaches for Zhongli’s heart and rips out what makes him so holy.

    It would be such a beautiful, shameful sight.
