    Summary

    “So what you’re saying is—the worse of an actor I am, the more likely it is that we’ll never change back. So I shouldn’t do things like dive for fish in the Liyue ponds when all the Millelith are watching.”

    Zhongli nods. “Yes, exactly. Please refrain from doing that.”

    Three weeks after summoning Osial, and three weeks without contact from his old friend, Childe wakes up in Zhongli's body. It goes exactly as one might expect. (Which is to say: disastrously.)

    Summary

    “You’re lonely, aren’t you? You miss her, don’t you?”

    A quiet moment hung between them. Childe thought Zhongli might hit him, and that wouldn’t be the worst outcome, brawling in his room. “I did not appreciate her as she deserved while she was alive,” he admitted solemnly.

    “So, pretend I’m her. Just for the night, one night, you can have her back.” Childe curled his fingers into the front of Zhongli’s shirt. He hoped he sounded self-assured, not desperate.

    --
    [post 1.1 update/ chap 1, act 3] childe couldn't have zhongli's gnosis, as he'd given it away. childe couldn't have zhongli's heart, as it belonged to another. but he could have his body, he thought, and that might be something, might be enough to satiate him for a night.

    Summary

    A lot of things have changed since Trevor Belmont last entered Dracula’s castle, Alucard most of them all. Cracking open closed doors and peeking inside proves more difficult and life-threatening than it first seems, and in attempting to get through to Alucard, Trevor has to face a few things about himself, too.
