    Summary

    Long ago, the gods appointed the Nie clan to be the executors of divine justice: to punish corruption, to fight against injustice, to protect the weak against the strong. They blessed your first ancestors with clever minds and strong consciences and loving hearts, taught them to walk among humans, to look and think and speak like humans, to fight like humans with a blade as well as with teeth and claws. They forged them into instruments, made the Nie clan the deadly sabre of heaven.

    But: said your mother—we have never forgotten that we used to be beasts. The heavens could not and would not take that away from us. We feel everything fierce and simple; that is our greatest strength and our greatest burden.

    You remember one day, perhaps a different day, when she held you close, though your mother was not someone who often showed her love through touch. She said, you feel so much, a-Jue; you are full to bursting with it.

    Summary

    Modern AU: Mingjue and Xichen are living in different cities, no longer entirely boyfriends as such, more in a best-friends-sort-of-dating-long-distance-in-an-open-relationship scenario. But in practice this largely involves having long distance phone sex most nights while both watching the same porn.

    Which, for several months now, has mostly meant watching a sunny little femmeboi called A Yao, who has dimples to die for, an Only Fans page, an endless supply of stockings and dildos, and the kind of flexibility that makes your eyes water.

    Mingjue and Xichen are maybe just a little obsessed with the idea of wrecking him.

    Lately, A Yao has started including his roommate "Xiao Tang" in his shoots - with his face pixelated, because Xiao Tang is shy, and is not entirely ready to be internet famous in this way.

    Mingjue and Xichen are both extremely enthusiastic about this turn of events.

    Which is going to be a little awkward in the immediate future...

    Summary

    It’s a typical Wednesday afternoon the day the most beautiful man in the world walks into the EZ-PC, which is to say, Meng Yao is dealing with an idiot.

    Meng Yao works the IT desk at a big box electronics store; Lan Xichen’s laptop seems to suffer an extraordinary number of mishaps.

    (Or, five times Meng Yao provided excellent customer service, and one time he provided really, really excellent customer service.)
