    Summary

    Summary

    Guan Yinping is captured at the battle of Fan Castle, and Sun Quan's desire for revenge on her family seems insatiable. Lu Xun intervenes. A novel length work that begins with just this simple struggle of one person to save another, but expands as more and more things change, partially thanks to the meddling of a certain mystic.

    Or, as my husband put it, "Tl;dr Shu and Wu officers get laid, stop being idiots."

    Rated M for violent, explicit sexual, and medical content. This is plotty romance; sex to further the plot/develop characters, rather than the plot being for the purpose of getting to the sex. Chapter notes will attempt to identify sex scenes and triggers in advance. This is a dark and dangerous era with some traumatized characters who definitely hurt each other (both intentionally and not), but there is also a lot of fluff and humour. There is a scene in which a character doesn't know how to communicate withdrawing sexual consent; otherwise no non-con.

    Tags added as they apply to chapters. There are so many characters that I am only tagging POV characters. To avoid spoilers, there are untagged pairings.

    Summary

    “Hong Yuan, Hong Yuexia. The Grandmaster of the JieJue Sect.”
    “...oh.”
    The news took Yan Hong by surprise, and no small amount of fear, for the world of cultivators and supernatural dangers which his family had left was now coming for them.
    ~`*'~
    Yan Hong believed his royal husband Lí Chang, when Lí Chang claimed their marriage as reparation for a past life: when Lí Chang did many wrongs to Yan Hong and the late Emperor managed to execute everyone in a fit of imperial paranoia.
    The only thing that he could not believe, was that the JieJue Sect's late Grandmaster would send Lí Chang back in time for free. Generations ago, this same Grandmaster tied the Yan ancestors to serve him, the spectre of service to a godly figure still hanging about, generations even after his death.
    Fortunately, Lí Chang agreed with him.
    Unfortunately, this ended up with Lí Chang having nightmares of war, practicing his weapons nightly, and spending all hours in the Imperial Library.
    The red thread tightens. They hang, puppets to their fates against which they struggle.

    This is not a man travelling back through time to resolve his mistakes. This is the fallout.

    Summary

    Huang Jin could only remember that, since his birth, the only thing in his mind was the picture of a red string. This stubborn determination, enough to move mountains, led him to pursue cultivation towards Immortality, in the hopes of untying his attachments to the mortal world.

    His pursuit of the Way led him to clash against the leader of the cultivation world's unorthodox faction, the Immortal Hong Yuexia. Seeing the red string tying his fate to this immortal existence, a determination to move the implacable obstacle of time awoke in his chest.

    Perhaps, it was already there to begin with.

    A fool he might be, but Huang Jin was determined to be the fool who wins the beauty and the world in the end.

    ___

    Ancient China setting, alternate universe, cultivation to immortality as the setting. Main pair is technically BL, but contains other themes like gender identity in relation to social identification.

    Summary

    The others called it more bad luck. Good terrestrial weather had not been necessary for launching supplies and small-scale ships into orbit for a generation, not since the advent of space-based guidance systems to assist with the telemetry. But Wang Chengzong had taken down their near-earth systems almost a month ago: as it stood, the Lu Zhou encampment could send up no reinforcements to the greater fleet beyond. The black clouds and persistent rain cloaking their base only served to remind the Imperial forces stationed there of as much.

    For his part, Li He had dug himself a hole.

    Summary

    “You’re Sun Wukong?!”

    “—The one and only,” he gargled, food in his mouth.

    When Chen Xiang came to him, he really was just a boy. Wukong thought, from his paper drum heart to his shaky-straining lungs to that glint in his eye, everything about this boy was so utterly, undeniably, human.

    Sun Wukong has long returned from the Journey to the West and a demigod child seeks him out to be his disciple. Which, technically speaking, was already quite the ludicrous notion had he not been the nephew of his mortal enemy, three-eyed freak Erlang Shen. Atop of that, one would think that Sun Wukong would have some self-restraint when it came to bets, considering the last time. Apparently not. For an offer of a bet from a King was not an invitation, but a duel.
