    Summary

    It’s been two months since the storm, and Childe hasn’t seen Zhongli not even once, not since that fateful meeting with the Signora where the truth is finally unveiled.

    And what a fun little kick to the gut that is, the realization that not only had he been played by all sides, but he's also being tossed aside like trash now that his use had run its course.

    It’s not that Childe doesn’t get it. He’s a Harbinger. He knows first-hand what it means to do his duty, to put the mission first and his personal feelings far, far away, preferably locked up in a box, where it wouldn’t interfere with his job. He knows what it’s like working with vipers, to scheme and plot and lie in wait for the opportune moment to stab his opponent in the back.

    But this time, this time Childe can’t help but feel a little (a lot) gutted.

    Stupid. He’s gotten himself stupidly attached.

    --
    A story about Childe trying to move on after the events of 1.1 Update, but some of his actions have consequences, and those consequences have followed him back to Snezhnaya.

    Summary

    Childe didn't dream much before coming to Liyue, if he did, it was memories of blood, not fantasies.

    But then there was the Geo Archon. An Archon of War. Childe had heard the storytellers' proud tales of their God, Rex Lapis, read the lengthy novels, and seen the lands that told tales of their own of the Lord of Geo. And Childe couldn't help smiling at the stories of stone spears piercing the earth and sea. A nearly seven thousand year old warrior who had lived through an era of nothing but battles and who had won.

    To say Childe was eager to fight the archaic God was to make the greatest understatement in all of Teyvat's history.

    Then the Rite of Receiving. The War God assassinated. Childe went back to dark dreamless nights, his dream of fighting that unparalleled power suddenly gone. Then betrayal yet odd relief came when he found Zhongli and Rex Lapis were in fact the same being. It stung, but in a way Childe felt was karma. The omissions he could excuse, but Childe couldn’t forgive himself for what followed. Dreams rushed back to him and now Rex Lapis held a new more attractive form, Zhongli.

    Summary

    A lump formed in Childe’s throat. He had wanted to skip out of Liyue, trek back to Snezhnaya and deal with whatever complicated feelings had developed when he could think with the proper head. For all his efforts and drowning his feelings and urges with the same intensity he had tried to drown Liyue Harbor, the moment his eyes landed on glowing Cor Lapis, it was a lost battle.

    Summary

    What do you do when you write about a certain six thousand year old consultant so much in your letters that it somehow convinces your entire family you're not only dating each other, but that you're also engaged?

    In Childe's case, the answer is plain and simple: he goes along with it, of course. Absolutely nothing can go wrong if he makes a contract with the God of Contracts, vowing that the two of them will pretend to be lovers for the duration of his family's stay in Liyue. Afterwards, they'll return as normal and speak no more of this mess. No feelings or complications involved whatsoever.

    Contract accepted. A fool-proof plan set in stone. Right?

    Summary

    “What are you doing?”

    “Don’t you remember what I said on the boat?” Childe asked a bit too sweetly. “I said you hid a lot from me, and if I can find out just a little bit more about who the hell you are, then so be it. How about it, Zhongli? Why don’t we traverse these ruins and you can tell me all about it, just like old times? It’ll give me something fun to think about when I head back to Schnezaya.”

    “You’re… going back soon… aren't you?” He sounded pensive, hesitant to speak the words out loud as if doing so would ring them true.

    “Well… it’s not like I can stay here forever, you know.” As much as I want to; as much as I did want to. He was so steadfast to let his annoyance show, but those few meek words mumbled out just loud enough for him to hear made that fire lose oxygen.

    “Of course…”

    Summary

    The abyss was black, snow was white, and battle was red. Tartaglia, “Childe,” quite liked them that way, and he quite liked when they all mixed together. In fact, nothing was better. He took every step in life desperate to swallow the whole world in those colors.

    Zhongli, on the other hand, preferred the calm, endless blue of the sea. It was unfortunate that taming the ocean was a futile endeavor. Even so, he always found that he did his best soul-searching while near the water.

    --

    Post-1.1, Zhongli and Childe navigate their relationship set back into motion after a single battle.

    Summary

    In which Zhongli stumbles upon Childe after the events of the Mighty Cyclops Adventure and seeks to make amends with the injured Harbinger. However, it seems that said Harbinger is more injured than he let's on. That, and the lingering bitterness of deception is still raw on Childe's tongue.

    Hopefully, Zhongli can convince the man to at least allow him to aid in his healing, maybe in more ways than one.

    Summary

    Zhongli eats a slice, then takes another and raises it to Childe’s mouth, rather insistently pressing it against his lips. When he eats it, chews through the slice, it’s sweeter than any fruit he’s ever had before.

    A little overdramatic, but the silence makes his skin prickle and his bones itch. He feels overdramatic.

    They eat in silence, nothing but the wind to accompany them. One slice for Zhongli, the next for Childe. When they finish the first, Zhongli moves on to the second.

    (After the Incident, Childe meets with Zhongli for a picnic, but he does a lot more than just eat food.)

    Summary

    “That so? Can I claim it now, my remuneration?” but his hands are already chasing beneath the hems of his trousers. The touch of his fingers feathers his abdomen. Lower, lower, with a light graze. Zhongli’s still finding his response when they’re suddenly halted by the pungent scent of charring. The sizzle’s getting loud, it crackles. 

    Something besides arousal is now burning. It directs his attention away from the red and blue and pink in Childe’s features to the stove. Smears of black smoke furling within the metal wok. Childe curses behind him,  

    “Fuck.” withdrawing from him with a panicked haste to reach for the spatula. Then stretches around him again with clumsy motions in attempts to scrape the darkened pancake off the wok. Zhongli straightens and holds his chin in thought as he watches Childe work. 

    Perhaps he should stop distracting him when he cooks.

    Summary

    Прошло уже почти два месяца после шторма, а Чайльд так ни разу и не увидел Чжун Ли с той самой роковой встречи с Синьорой, где наконец была обнародована правда.

    Ох, каким же забавным, мелким пинком под дых было осознание, что им не только играли со всех сторон, но и выбросили как мусор, стоило ему перестать быть полезным.

    Не то, чтобы Чайльд не понимает. Он Предвестник. Он не понаслышке знает, что значит выполнять свой долг, ставить миссию на первое место, а собственные чувства – на одно из последних. В идеале – запереть их в ящике, чтобы они не мешали работе. Он знает, каково это – работать с гадюками, строить козни и выжидать идеального момента, чтобы нанести удар со спины.

    Но на этот раз Чайльд не может не чувствовать себя немного (много) опустошенным.

    Какой дурак. Он тупо привязался.
    __
    История о том, как Чайльд пытается жить дальше после событий 1.1 обновления, вот только некоторые из его действий имеют последствия, и эти последствия направились за ним прямиком в Снежную.

    Summary

    Dies ist die deutsche Fan-Übersetzung zur wundervollen Fanfiction von Seredemia <3

    Was macht man, wenn man über einen bestimmten sechstausend Jahre alten Berater so oft in seinen Briefen schreibt, dass man irgendwie die ganze Familie davon überzeugt, dass ihr nicht nur miteinander ausgeht, sondern dass ihr sogar verlobt seid?

    In Childes Fall ist die Antwort schlicht und einfach: Er zieht natürlich mit. Es kann absolut nichts schiefgehen, wenn er mit dem Gott der Verträge einen Vertrag schließt, der die zwei schwören lässt für die Länge des Besuchs seiner Familie in Liyue so zu tun, als wären sie Liebhaber. Danach kehren sie zum Alten zurück und reden nie mehr über diesen Unfug. Keine Gefühle oder Komplikationen welcher Art auch immer sind beteiligt.

    Vertrag akzeptiert. Ein idiotensicherer Plan in Stein gemeißelt. Richtig?

    Summary

    “Well, the matter at hand requires your assistance, as it is something you have created,” Zhongli answers curtly, blinking in expectation. When Childe gapes, not a single iota of comprehension on his features, he offers more. “Osial is in my room.” Undeniably so stupid that the consultant winces at his own wording.

    “What the fuck?” Childe blurts.

    Alternatively; Osial wasn't sealed properly by the Jade Chamber and is now a smaller, free roaming water creature that forces Zhongli and Childe to clear up their own mess, deal with their pent-up frustration and talk it out.

    Summary

    A rain of stone pillars were pulled from the broken earth and raised high, striking with intense ferocity that caused tremors that could be felt for kilometres. And yet, somehow, this finicky mortal had dodged all of them with steps that moved fluidly with the shape of his legs and body.

    A strong, fluid style of movement, despite its rough exterior. An odd sense of sensuality and rugged charm.

    It matched its owner well.

    Summary

    “So what you’re saying is—the worse of an actor I am, the more likely it is that we’ll never change back. So I shouldn’t do things like dive for fish in the Liyue ponds when all the Millelith are watching.”

    Zhongli nods. “Yes, exactly. Please refrain from doing that.”

    Three weeks after summoning Osial, and three weeks without contact from his old friend, Childe wakes up in Zhongli's body. It goes exactly as one might expect. (Which is to say: disastrously.)
