    Summary

    A circus is supposed to be a mindless thing.

    You walk in, watch the performance, accept the entertainment, and forget about it the next day. A night of dramatical acts and feats, the constant rush of adrenaline- it's enough to leave one hazy in the morning, the entire thing nothing but a blur of the past, yet it leaves you satisfied enough to carry on with your life. You never visit the same one twice, though, even if you wanted to; They're always gone the next day, the fairgrounds nothing but a barren parking lot or an empty field within the next twelve hours.

    So, what happens when one stays for a week, and you just can't get enough of the trapeze act?

    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.

    Summary

    Childe had always assumed that he would die young. He had accepted that a long time ago, ever since he accepted the mantle of a Fatui Harbinger. However, he always thought that he would die in a glorious fight, his body broken but spirit relishing the strong opponent that had bested him. He was okay with that type of death.

    Unfortunately, it seemed like Fate had decided to add one last insult to injury, because, here Childe was, dying because he had fallen in love with the ex-Geo Archon. The same Archon who seemed to have discarded him like an old toy ever since the Osial Incident.
    ---
    In which divine beings are cruel and a cursed Childe starts preparing for his inevitable death because no Archon could ever love a mortal.

    ...Right?

    Summary

    “I was a mortal, once. After all this time, I still cannot fathom why I ascended to godhood and achieved immortality when I had died by descending to the bottom of a frozen lake.”

    He ceased to be human, far in the past.

    He accepts it with a heavy heart. It is a burden he resigns himself to shoulder until the end of time arrives.

    As he remains incognito, he bears witness to the history he desires not to be a part of. Nevertheless, he fights to survive, to outlive the slain gods that perish in the gruelling bloodshed.

    Then, he dutifully stirs havoc in the name of the Archon he is forced to serve.

    Although his heart is hardened by the trials and tribulations he has endured, he finds himself not completely desensitised by the ordeals he has faced over his everlasting lifetime.

    Alternatively:

    A divinised Tartaglia still seeks the thrill of battle, even if he, deep down, desires to rest. He finds solace in a certain Geo Archon.

    Summary

    Summary

    “—I’ll do anything, Zhongli!” Childe cries. “So please, if you have ever loved me, give me the power to fix this!”

    He pulls Zhongli onto his lap, back flushed against his chest. When he buries his tear-streaked face into the curve of Zhongli’s shoulder, he still smells like glaze lilies and incense. So incongruent with the acrid stench of the battlefield.

    “...Ajax…”

    Childe pulls back to see the last vestiges of gold swirl in the Archon’s exhausted eyes.

    “Go with my blessings.”

    When Liyue faces an inevitable catastrophe, Childe finds himself back in the past to retrieve the Gnosis that Zhongli has lost. Perhaps if he returns to the present with it, both Liyue and its Archon can be saved.

    Summary

Join the campfire to see if Barbara has what it takes to stand toe to toe with her newfound companion, the unpredictable Childe.

    Summary

    Water emerged from various places, coming together in the middle of the room, swirling until a man with orange hair and deep blue eyes took its place.

    His coattails billowed behind him as if it was dancing underwater, which was impossible since they were on dry land.

    “My, even as I hid so well, you still can tell when I’m around. As expected of the great Morax.” Childe purred.

    Summary

    Promises were similar to contracts. They were both based on mutual trust, and were absolute.

    Childe never broke his promises. This was the first time he did, as well as the last.

    Summary

    Zho—no, Rex Lapis truly had them, mostly him, dancing in his palm. 
    Well played, Rex Lapis. Well played. 
    -
    He had neglected to fully explain his intent when he first talked to Tartaglia after giving his Gnosis to Signora. It resulted in him sounding very callous to Tartaglia, exactly the opposite of what he intended. Now with that in mind, Zhongli knew he had to be very clear. 
    He would not make the same mistake. 
    .
    Childe gives away a lot of things in exchange for something else.
    (Plus that two times he gives away a thing without realizing it and that one time he gives away without expecting anything.)

    Summary

    Прошло уже почти два месяца после шторма, а Чайльд так ни разу и не увидел Чжун Ли с той самой роковой встречи с Синьорой, где наконец была обнародована правда.

    Ох, каким же забавным, мелким пинком под дых было осознание, что им не только играли со всех сторон, но и выбросили как мусор, стоило ему перестать быть полезным.

    Не то, чтобы Чайльд не понимает. Он Предвестник. Он не понаслышке знает, что значит выполнять свой долг, ставить миссию на первое место, а собственные чувства – на одно из последних. В идеале – запереть их в ящике, чтобы они не мешали работе. Он знает, каково это – работать с гадюками, строить козни и выжидать идеального момента, чтобы нанести удар со спины.

    Но на этот раз Чайльд не может не чувствовать себя немного (много) опустошенным.

    Какой дурак. Он тупо привязался.
    __
    История о том, как Чайльд пытается жить дальше после событий 1.1 обновления, вот только некоторые из его действий имеют последствия, и эти последствия направились за ним прямиком в Снежную.

    Curse you, Zhongli, for what you’ve done to me. Curse you for ruining me, for living inside of me, for meaning so much to me.

    Summary

    My Noble Love was a highly rated game and Ajax had the opportunity to play it with Tonia. Now that he had been reborn into a new life as a boy named Tartaglia, he had planned to live his life peacefully. That is, until he fell into an abyss and regained memories of his previous life.

    The character he is was the villain of the story. Tartaglia was born to be a suitor for Prince Morax, Tartaglia was born to be heartbroken and exiled. But Childe’s destiny is a script he’ll write himself. Fate can go be damned.

     

    Or, Childe is reincarnated into an otome game as the villain.

    Summary

    Golden sunlight enters and iluminates the golden room, filling it with sweet warm light. Childe wakes up gently, feeling much better rested, his wounds barely bothering him anymore. How ever pretty the sight is, a prison is a prison. Oh the irony of it all. Oh his poor little sweet siblings. How he longs to burn it all to ashes.

    Zhongli stares at his reflexion in the gilded mirror, his thumb pressing slightly over the little mark barely noticiable on his white skin just above his right hipbone. He is been trying to guess the shape of it for about 20 years, now that is more visible than ever he would say it looks like a kitten, a little orange misbehaved kitten. Anyway he had never liked the courtains in his home and all those treasures humans got attached to, meant nothing to the God of whatever they are calling him now.
