    Summary

    He’s tired, tired of the unbreakable loop of watching his loved ones pass on, tired of getting attached only for the connection to be violently ripped away from him. He wonders if the real victors during the Archon War were those who perished, who died long before their godhood turned into a curse that chained them to the land that they were fighting for.

    But that is not a problem for Childe to worry about. That is Zhongli’s burden to bear, delivered to him in a pretty package years ago in the form of a gnosis.

    His very first contract.

    (Zhongli and Childe, across many lifetimes)

    Summary

    His change in demeanour was drastic, the usually lively Ajax had become listless.

     

    Lately, Zhongli would find his kitten curled up in their shared bed even if he wasn't there. This had become routine—with Ajax no longer sauntering in front of him the moment Zhongli returned home. Ajax could instead be found nuzzling into a pillow while blankly staring ahead, not bothering to look up at his master.
