    Summary

    "Autumn has already arrived, painting the trees' leaves in variations of yellow, red and brown. The sinking sun on the horizon putting a red veil over this whole picture - a painting of absolute peace one could say. But this scenery is deceptive. Beyond the horizon, everyone knows, the war is still going on. Eating sons, brothers, husbands with every passing day, already for two years now. And it still goes on and on without an end in sight and without a real purpose."

    The story of three best friends growing up in the early 20th century

    Summary

    Steve Rogers, keeper of the light, is used to being alone. He spends his days running the lighthouse, tending to his errant chickens, and sketching the endless passing waves. One dangerous night brings an injured soldier into his quarters that remembers nothing about his past, and Steve finds himself helplessly devoted to getting Bucky some answers. Will his life of solitude ever be the same, or will he open his home and his heart to a mysterious stranger?

    Or, Lighthouse Keeper Steve rescues Captain Bucky Barnes and nurses him back to health as he tries to regain his memories. Featuring lots of snuggles, far too many maritime facts, and good ol’ Steve Rogers’ fighting spirit, just for flavor.

    Summary

    The rumors have given this man, and his mask, a name: the Stygian Tiger. You have been following breadcrumbs, piecing together a string of deaths dotted from province to province, trying to find the bigger picture behind the senseless violence that has permeated your entire adult life. This is the first time you’ve caught him in the act, so to speak; in the villages they whisper the name the way they tell horror stories of the old demonic cultivators — and more importantly, they say he never leaves witnesses.

    Here you are. Witnessing.

    He plays a dizi.

    You’ve had no taste for the instrument since 1945. Yet now, listening to the melody that propels Xiao Xingchen’s body into further and further malevolence, you are struck by the sound. The notes lodge themselves into you like living splinters, working their way someplace deeper, to hidden parts of you that are kept secret and which are still raw, even two years after the fact. Something shatters when the realization arrives: this is the precise inverse of a melody you are certain only two people on earth know. “Wei Wuxian,” you whisper, and just the three syllables falling out of your mouth are the explosion of a grenade you swore to swallow when he died.

    Summary

    "From the sacred temples of the Land of the Rising Sun to the stages of Paris! The Eastern Diamond, the Pearl of the Orient! The inimitable AMATERASU!

    The sound of a violin slithered through the room, and a single spot of low light showed a figure carefully splayed out on stage, lying in a shimmering pool of black fabric. The dancer undulated as if made of water, slowly rising. Like the sun on a winter morning, Victor thought, watching in a trance as the lights revealed a delicate smirk that both invited and mocked, brown eyes that alternated between glancing at the audience and avoiding it altogether, and hair as dark and soft-looking as the fabric of his costume, and just as ripe for messing up under someone else’s hands."

    Summary

    Her fingers hovered gently over the steel blade of her old sword, rusted over by the passage of time, and yet familiar to her all the same. “You kept it?”

    “I kept meaning to give it back to you, but we were always so fleeting... just two ships passing in the night.”

    “It’s been a long night,” she joked, then they both let out noises somewhere between sobs and laughter as they looked over the room, which was full of the various artifacts that they’d collected. Centuries worth of countless possessions filled the room, covered the shelves, and hung from the walls.

    “This is every piece of the story we’ve written,” Ben told her, walking around to her other side as he lifted a framed photo of them outside of her apartment in 1922, and looked at it closely. “The good...” He gestured to the photo, then he set it down, and moved on to the plague mask resting on the table nearby. “The bad...” His gaze fell next on the candlestick, which had rested on a mantle piece in a French castle that had long since fallen to ashes. “And everything in between.”
    --
    Ben and Rey are rendered immortal after being struck by lightning at the precise same moment, and keep running into one another as the centuries drag on.
