    Summary

    There was more to the contract than a gnosis and test of Liyue. It seemed like a simple deal, five hundred years ago: so long as Morax never had a soulmate, the Tsaritsa would never harm Liyue and she would not get his gnosis. But the moment he gained a soulmate, all that belonged to him was forfeit. He thought the deal left Liyue safe—he'd lived thousands of years without a soulmate. The Tsaritsa would be dead and gone by the time she'd have a chance to collect.

    Five hundred years later, Childe appears in Liyue, Zhongli gains a soulmate mark, and everything falls apart.

    (The obligatory soulmate AU, mixed with PTSD-ridden Zhongli, an oblivious Childe, and demon-worshipping cultists.)

    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.
