    Summary

    Half told through messages, a story about bickering, flirting, healing, and a happy stroke of serendipity that led two lonely boys to fall in love.

    "Thinking about Feng Xin made him feel strange and unexpected. Both light as a feather and heavy as an anchor. Since that day, Mu Qing had been floating in a sea of strange novelty, cold water lapping at him gently, as flimsy and weightless as plumage, but one wrong move and he would sink and gasp for air."

    ༝❈༝

    Or, Feng Xin finds a phone number on the toilet stall under the words, "if u want a good time call me." Furious, he decides to save the contact to let them know about the prank.

    Summary

    Perhaps that’s why Hua Cheng lets his shoulders untense as he makes his way further into Black Water Manor, the hallways nearly as familiar to him as the streets of Ghost City. Neither place is his home, yes, but seeing as he’s never had a home, familiarity is a fine enough substitute.

    Summary

    “What does gege want?”

    “I want—”

    Xie Lian has to force his thoughts to stop their panicked skipping. What does he want? He wants the dusty solitude of his room. He wants to dunk his head in the wash water. He wants Ruoye tight around his ribs and the leaves of his tree in the window. And then a series of realizations: He wants this to be over, but he doesn’t want San Lang to leave. He wants to rest his weary body, but he doesn’t want to have sex. He wants to be fed—

    -

    Xie Lian is cursed to need sex. Hua Cheng wants to help with that.

    Summary

    Huaisang sticks his tongue out at Mingjue. “I bet you’re just mad because you talked to Xichen-ge and he brutally rejected you, again.”

    “Okay, first of all, I was never ‘brutally rejected,’ I was turned down very gently and we were still friends until I graduated,” Mingjue says, ignoring Huaisang’s obvious eyeroll. “Second, we spoke for like two minutes and half of it was about you. He says hello, by the way. Third, even if I were still interested in him, which I’m not, he isn’t interested in me. He said we should ‘get coffee sometime’ and gave me his business card.”

    “Ouch,” Huaisang says with a wince. “Like, his personal card or the one from the hospital?”

    “The one from the hospital.” Mingjue pulls it out of his pocket to show his brother. “It’s a very nice, impersonal card.”

    So what if Nie Mingjue has been a little in love with his childhood best friend, Lan Xichen, for the better part of two decades? That's his business -- not his brother's, not his very few friends', and definitely not Lan Xichen's.

    Summary

    Xie Lian hears the rustle of fabric; then cold fingers brush against the shell of his ear, gentle as anything, following the arch until they thread through his hair. The hand leaves, leaving behind a soft pressure still tucked into the loose tie of his hair. He reaches up, brushing his fingers over the edge of his ear, feeling something silk-soft against his skin, and he plucks it out carefully. He opens his eyes, looking down at the vibrant crimson lily in his hand, stroking his thumb over the petals.

    AU where Xie Lian never ascends, and years later he meets a soldier who seems very familiar to him.
