    Summary

    A couple of buds of lilac for a scraped knee, a cluster of hyacinths down someone’s shoulders from a slime encounter. It was a physical manifestation of your soulmate’s pain.

    Zhongli, for most of his life, never got any flowers. He knows that he’s immortal, he hasn’t aged in centuries. His soulmate, Zhongli reckons, is probably mortal. So he waits, patiently, for them. After all, he has all the time in the world.

    --

    Childe does not want a soulmate.

     

    (lyrics are from 'carry me out" by mitski)

    Summary

    Zhongli stood up from the piano as their small orchestra was ready.

    He turned to Childe with a fiery glint in his eye and extended his hand out towards him.

    “So Childe. Impress me” He almost growled.

    Childe’s heart started to pound inside his chest. Something about the way Zhongli stood there commanding the room and the way he had grinned so sharply at Childe and the way he had said his name struck a chord within him.

    He could tell Zhongli was passionate about his art and that spurred Childe on to succeed.

    He realised in that moment he would do anything to impress Zhongli.

    He swallowed in anticipation and picked up the sticks.

    He prayed to the Archons that he wouldn’t mess this up.

    Summary

    While Lumine may have been fated to play the role he set aside for her, he had never foreseen her companionship.

    The low, simmering burn that seemed to be building somewhere within him was even less expected.

    Summary

    How would it feel to fall in love again? To be held, live in the present, and enjoy a mortal life?

    If only a God could ever experience such pleasures and luxuries. They are short-lived and not worth it.

    At least that's what Zhongli had thought until he truly tried it. But the past will always come back to hunt the God. Happiness truly is a luxury.

    Summary

    Childe and Zhongli’s friendship is unlikely, with one being an impulsive, confident, and adventurous billionaire who’s friends with virtually everyone and sought after by more, and the other a quiet, reserved, and introverted old soul who says “please” and “thank you” to leaves on the sidewalk. And yet, they get along with one another better than anyone else. They’ve been friends for years and found themselves in their own troublesome dilemmas at the same time.

    Childe, a young CEO of the multi-billion dollar company “Fatui”, is dealing with more inappropriate gestures and remarks in regards to him being single than he cares for. Zhongli, a consultant of the Wangsheng Funeral Home, is going through a financial crisis, with every possible liability hitting him at once. When ranting to each other over drinks one night, they come to the most absurd solution to both of their problems: pose Zhongli as Childe’s boyfriend and sugar baby, just until everything settles, of course. Childe has more than enough money to spare, Zhongli doesn’t mind helping a friend in need, and their arrangement is flawless. At least, it appears to be that way.

    Summary

    'In an endless night
    Could you feel the fright of an age that was and could never be?
    So we hold it close when we feel the most
    Like a love that we could not leave behind

    Turn the wheel to each way we feel
    'Til I'm lost and I cannot find you there
    Don't forget the nights when it all felt right
    Are you not the same as you used to be?'

    The bubbles, so delicate and carefully crafted, explode and scare away rationality.

    Summary

    If one makes a mistake, then one should ask for an apology.

    "But is it really that simple?"

    It's been more than a year since Tartaglia left Liyue, and Zhongli finally decided to search after him in hopes for reconciliation. But things happened and now he finds himself living with Tartaglia's younger siblings Tonia, Anthon, and Teucer, who not only teach him how to live as a mortal, but also show him another side of Tartaglia he has yet to know.

    This is a story of a former Archon trying to (re)learn how to be a human as he navigates his days surrounded by three children.

    Summary

    "I swear I'll make it up to you, Ajax." But his tone did not indicate any trace of spite; in the contrary, his words showed rather a bit of sadness. "I really am sorry"

    "You better be" He whispered, his voice still sounding harsh. At that, the hair brushing stopped and the hand slipped as if it had been burnt. He opened his eyelids and locked eyes with the brown ones. "It's always been your fault."

     

    Or after months past his betrayal, Tartaglia is found injured by Zhongli.

    Summary

    Before the Traveller arrived in Liyue, before the Contract to end all Contracts was signed between the Cryo and the Geo Archon, Zhongli sought out the assistance of an outlander in his quest to carve a purpose for himself in the present era. Rex Lapis may have earned a well deserved rest after millennia of carrying a nation upon his shoulders, but is Liyue capable of stepping into the future without his guidance? The god intends to find out before tracing a plan to relinquish his duties for good.

    The outlander has arrived in Liyue haunted by ghosts from her past that fatefully align her path with Zhongli's. Their collaboration will bear unexpected gifts: for Rex Lapis, a taste of what it feels like to embrace life as a mortal and, for the outlander, the redemption she has been unknowingly searching for.
