    Summary

    At 22, Diluc only has himself, his anxiety, and a pocket watch inherited from his father that sometimes distracts him from loneliness. Hovering between college and a shitty job, he barely ever rests, and whatever free time he has he spends hunting for the truth about his father’s death.

    His life implodes when he is attacked by a strange beast on his way home from work. If it weren’t for Kaeya, a beautiful knight summoned from the past, Diluc would have been monster dinner.

    Neither Diluc nor Kaeya know why Mondstadt is suddenly bustling with monsters that hunt adepts of magic, but one thing is sure: they can count on each other.

    And they will need to.

    Summary

    Diluc takes care of Kaeya far more than people give him credit for. The little, unspoken things are often the things that matter most.

    3 times Diluc spoils Kaeya, and one time Kaeya returns the favor and gets a little reward for himself too.

    Summary

    Diluc met him properly on a rainy Tuesday in the City of Freedom, pinned to the grey earth by sheets of rain pouring onto the roof of the abandoned palace as if the overcast sky itself was cracking apart and falling down in colourless pieces, with a half-wing cloak around his shoulders like he might fly away if he knew how. Diluc was alone and looking past him at a more distant horizon, and he was knowing, jaded, older and wiser than him by a few years into which an entire lifetime might have been condensed. Diluc wanted to run away, and he had run away a long time ago only to end up back where he had started.

    Years later, Diluc would ask him why, and he would respond, “Because life goes in circles and I thought I had mapped out the circumference of mine.”

    On a pure whim, Kaeya orchestrates a grand scheme to cheat a Duchess out of a part of her fortune, and Diluc, falling into it by chance, ends up pretending to be a prince for passage to Fontaine. Or: in which Diluc learns how to lie, Kaeya learns how to tell the truth, and one of these turns out to be significantly harder than the other.

    Summary

    The concertmaster of the orchestra has hair like a field of poppies, and a delicately lifted chin that never lowers, and a cool gaze that lingers, like he can see into all the most intimately carved out hollows of your soul, or like you are a pane of glass that he can look right through and he does not see you at all. He is the first thing Kaeya sees when he walks into the concert hall for his first rehearsal, standing at the edge of the stage beside the maestro who has his arms folded across his chest, murmuring something too low to be caught under the background noise of the other players’ conversations.
