    Summary

    “New idea,” Jin Zixuan says, appearing out of nowhere as soon as Lan Zhan sets one foot in the door. “Garden landscaping—Yanli’s always complaining about how terrible and overgrown her backyard is. I could redo it, plant some flowers, maybe even dig a pond—”

    “Have you been lying in wait to ask me that all day?” Lan Zhan interrupts to ask. “Also: no. Do not dig Yanli a pond.”

    “Why not?” Jin Zixuan says. “Don’t you think it’s a good idea? Yanli’s always saying how much she misses the lake near her parents’ house—it would be a little piece of home!”

    Lan Zhan thinks of Wei Ying. He wonders if Wei Ying misses the lake too. Whether he might like a pond.

    Jin Zixuan is hopeless when he has a crush. It turns out that Lan Zhan is even worse.

    This is great! I love this fic! Awkward pining friends are hilarious and I adore them.

    Part of the reason he spends so much time with Jin Zixuan is that, for once, Lan Zhan isn’t the most awkward person in the room. Also, they’re practically bonded for life after the trauma that was being forced to sing a duet of Hakuna Matata at Mianmian’s karaoke birthday party when they were undergraduates.

    Summary

    The first time Nie Mingjue met Lan Xichen’s little brother, he thought he would be just like Nie Huaisang, so he picked him up and threw him.

    Mingjue-xiong,” Lan Xichen gasped, clearly horrified. “What are you doing?”

    Probably something forbidden by the rules, Nie Mingjue thought, and shrugged.

    This fic is SOOOOO GOOD! <3<3<3<3<3

     

    “Gerry, can I ask you a question?”

    Gerry lets out a snort devoid of any humor. “Go ahead.”

    “What...what exactly are you and Jon to each other?”

    He’s been thinking about it for several days now, ever since he felt the bond that lay between them. He’s not exactly experienced when it comes to romance—or even close friends—but he’d only ever expected that sort of intensity of emotion in a romantic connection. He doesn’t think it was romantic, though, not in the conventional sense.

    He’s...honestly not sure what to make of it.

    Gerry drifts closer to Martin, and the fire grows a bit redder, the wood popping quietly. Luckily he looks more thoughtful than offended, which is—a little weird, because if he’s known Jon for as long as he says he has, shouldn’t this be easy to answer?

    “I love him,” Gerry says at length. “It’s as you said. I love him, and he loves me.”

    Martin waits patiently for Gerry to continue, because he recognizes the look of a person who’s gathering the scattered threads of a hundred different thoughts, and putting them into one cohesive narrative.

    “We don’t...we don’t, you know, it’s not like we’re in...it’s not physical, but I can’t imagine being with anyone else the way I am with him.” Gerry shakes his head and runs his fingers through his hair, visibly frustrated. “I don’t know how to describe it.”

    “Try?” Martin asks, and has to put his feet on the floor and sit upright so that Gerry can lean against the edge of the hearth. He’s relieved to see that the flames are burning higher, almost back to normal, and the heat warms him right down to his toes.

    Gerry breathes out through his nose. “Have you ever loved someone for so long that you’ve forgotten any other way to be? It’s like...it’s like you’ve been breathing fresh air, and then one day you look around and realize that everyone else has been breathing underwater. It’s just the way that you are. Our lives being intertwined, it’s just...it’s a given at this point.”

    And Martin...doesn’t really understand that. He doesn’t think that it’s something he’s going to understand, either. What he does know is that Jon and Gerry love each other in some capacity, and saying otherwise would be ludicrous.

    “Okay,” Martin says. “Thank you for telling me.”

    Gerry looks relieved at the easy acceptance, and simply nods in return.
