    Summary

    “We talked about it,” Xie Lian says, hearing the frustration in his voice. “I want to go to the next step.”

    “It's okay if you don't—” Hua Cheng started.

    “I do! God, I want it so much. I don't want you thinking that I don't. I—I think about it all the time, San Lang.”

    Hua Cheng looks pleased, the tops of his cheekbones flushing to match his red shirt, and his thumb strokes the back of Xie Lian's hand.

    “What do you think about, gege?”

    --

    Xie Lian seeks a lesson in desire. And another. And another.

    Summary

    “I’ll be back in a few hours, sweetheart. You stay here in bed, hm? I’ll just...San Lang?”

    Hua Cheng’s eye has shot open, his lips parting in obvious surprise. Xie Lian blinks, leans back slightly, and frowns.

    “San Lang? Are you okay?”

    (One morning, Xie Lian calls Hua Cheng sweetheart. It Breaks The Man.)

    Summary

    "Perhaps you'll find another soul to torture,” Corvo teases, “Another tired middle-aged father who is so desperate for your fickle attention."

    “There is no one else,” the Outsider replies suddenly, voice fierce. His brow pinches just barely. “There is no other soul like yours. When you’re gone, I’ll wait to find you again, when your soul is reincarnated in a thousand or so years.”

    Corvo’s heart is thudding in his ears and the Mark burns hot on his skin, under his wrappings, like it's about to burst into flames.

    And then, as though caught being too sentimental, the Outsider’s hands drop slowly from Corvo’s face. He looks away, voice quiet when he says, “Don't die, beloved. It would be so troublesome for me.”

    Corvo Attano and the Outsider, in a dance not yet occurred, and so very, very human. Or, the transformation of a lifeless god to a god in human flesh and blood with a living, beating heart.

    Summary

    Hux prided himself on being a man who managed to have interests outside of the military. His newest interest; history so old that many thought it useless in the modern age. And he could have been quite content, reading articles and books on ancient cultures if it wasn't for Kylo Ren, who seemed to have made it his goal to inject himself into Hux's academic pursuits when he wasn't destroying the ship through his apparent self-destructive tendencies.

    Summary

    Kylo is a 5th-year college senior. He works two part-time jobs and goes to school full-time, but this schedule is obviously more than he can handle and he's on the verge of dropping out. He's chronically sleep-deprived, angry, and worried he'll fail and have to crawl back to his parents to ask for help after he cut ties with them several years ago.

    Hux is a graduate student, working on a double Master's degree and drowning in anxiety and student loan debt.

    Then, one day while they're at work, all hell breaks loose when the streets are suddenly flooded with the undead. Now they're stuck with each other, trying to survive together, despite the fact that they have hated one another since the day they met.

    This AU was inspired by this inktober/huxloween art from 2016.
