    Summary

    Wei Ying thinks he’s going to meet a younger version of Professor Lan, since they’re brothers- gently smiling, a little sad way back somewhere, smart as a whip and just a touch gullible, but instead he meets a drop dead gorgeous sonovabitch who refuses to make more than cursory eye contact and has about as much empathy in him as a brick fucking wall.

    In which Wei Ying is forced to take AAS100: Intro to Asian American Studies to graduate. He has a cruelly strict grader, and his only hope of passing the class is attending extra credit movie nights in a ridiculous dorm with 3,000 rules.

    Or: I watched a Chinese piece of media, promptly had a whole pile of feelings about being Chinese-American, and dumped them into a fanfiction.

    Summary

    For such a dangerous job, being the emperor of Yueha is remarkably thankless, full of tedious duties and without nearly enough staff. Which is why Yibo is totally consumed by yet another request for delegate seating changes as Xiao Zhan slits open the small, flat package from the Rigel system and sends iridescent pink powder spilling all over himself.

    “What—?” Xiao Zhan says, before his face crumples in the rictus of a sneeze.

    Summary

    Escape velocity: in physics, the minimum speed needed for an object to escape the gravitational influence of a dominant body.

    Xiao Zhan left his home behind long ago; the life of a bounty hunter has its ups and down, but at least it’s his. When he delivers his latest bounty, however, he leaves with a stowaway on board.

    His Highness Wang Yibo is two days away from his wedding - his second arranged marriage, actually, although the first never happened because his intended disappeared and hasn’t been heard from in years.

    Yibo has run out of ways to stall the marriage, and so he's running away - it's just his bad luck that the one ship he picks to stow away on is piloted by his technical, legal fiancé.

    Summary

    It is hot on location today. The sky is a brilliant, crisp blue and the air is thick and muggy. It sits heavily on Yibo's skin, making Lan Wangji's layers of hanfu feel uncomfortable. He copes reasonably well with the heat, but Xiao Zhan is wilting beside him. He has two handheld fans pointed directly at his face, but there's still sweat dotting his hairline and sliding down his neck.

    Yibo feels a stab of guilt. The heat is all his fault, after all.

    Summary

    He walks over to the window again, ears peeled, wondering if he should’ve woken Lan Zhan, when he hears it again. Tap, tap, tap, tap. Except it’s closer this time. All the hair on his arms stands up, and he fights a shiver.

    The tapping isn’t coming from the other side of the window. It’s coming from the inside.

     

    Wei Ying moves into a haunted house. Lan Zhan copes.
