    Summary

    Looking at statistics only, Gavin Reed and Nines made an excellent team: without a single case unsolved since they've started working together three months ago, everything appeared great. But it only scratched the very surface of their relationship.

    Looking at their dynamics, it became obvious how much room for growth both still had: getting along with the robocop Gavin was crushing on while feeling unable to stop the asshole-front constantly proved to be a serious issue. And Nines acting as the punching bag of said asshole didn't help. Turned out that expressing emotions properly was pretty damn difficult.

    Summary

    Being at different colleges, miles apart, meant that they’d likely be too busy for each other. An unstoppable force tearing them apart. But he could hold on for now.

    “Okay,” Stiles shakily answered, clearing his throat before continuing, “I’ll go with you after the game.”

    The corners of Derek’s lips started to turn up into a small but hopeful smile.

    It was different from the smile Derek did for football. It was always more personal—genuine—when he looked at Stiles.

    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.

    --
    A story about Childe trying to move on after the events of 1.1 Update, but some of his actions have consequences, and those consequences have followed him back to Snezhnaya.
