    Summary

    Up here, Qingyun Peak stretches to the right, a solid ballast of stone that almost pierces Teyvat’s slowly darkening sky. The orange trees that crown each peak catch the fading light and go hot and bronze, till it looks like the peaks above the clouds are almost on fire.

    Here, Xiao sits at the feet of the Statue in the light of a dying sun and slowly runs his forever bloodstained fingers through Aether’s gold hair.

    Summary

    Ace Trappola is nothing if not a very, very good liar, and an idiot. In a move of idiocy the likes of which Night Raven College has seldom seen, Ace decides to taste the potion he and Deuce made in class. The potion, a truth serum of sorts, causes Ace to realize he has far more secrets he'd like to keep than he thought, especially from Deuce, but mostly from himself.

    Summary

    What do you do when you write about a certain six thousand year old consultant so much in your letters that it somehow convinces your entire family you're not only dating each other, but that you're also engaged?

    In Childe's case, the answer is plain and simple: he goes along with it, of course. Absolutely nothing can go wrong if he makes a contract with the God of Contracts, vowing that the two of them will pretend to be lovers for the duration of his family's stay in Liyue. Afterwards, they'll return as normal and speak no more of this mess. No feelings or complications involved whatsoever.

    Contract accepted. A fool-proof plan set in stone. Right?

    Summary

    “How radiant you are,” is what Albedo breathes out in the end. He can barely believe it’s his own voice as he speaks, but he can’t bring himself to stop speaking or tear his gaze away from Aether, even as his voice begins to waver. “The heart of the universe, carrying the weight of the stars. All centered in a single, otherworldly traveler. Certainly, Teyvat has been blessed.”

    There’s an unreadable expression on Aether’s face as he stares back up at Albedo, summoning a silent pause. After a few beats, Aether shifts to sit back up, his back facing Albedo. For a brief moment, the alchemist begins to panic -- was he perhaps a little too truthful? Was Aether disgusted by such a comment and was going to leave -- but his worries are dispelled the moment Aether shifts a second time, turning to face Albedo.

    “What is it then, that the universe revolves with?”
    --
    Direct sequel to In Tides Pulled By The Moon, where binding ties get even more entwined.
