    Summary

    “Xie Lian?”

    Xie Lian’s heart stutters in his chest as his eyes go wide. He knows he shouldn’t be hearing that voice. And yet, there’s no mistaking it.

    Slowly, he lifts his gaze from the glass counter in front of him and stares in the direction whence the sound of the voice came. Standing at the entrance to the jewellery store is someone Xie Lian never expected to see again, no matter how often and how ardently he hoped that he would.

    “San Lang,” Xie Lian says.

    Or; Xie Lian and Hua Cheng break up. A year later, they meet again.

    Summary

    Xie Lian held up the flyer, and squinted at it through the eye-holes of his mask. Beneath the words ‘Join the Selection! Be the Ghost King’s Bride!’ the sweeping eaves rendered in wobbly black ink matched the silhouette of the building in the distance. Paradise Manor. The Ghost King’s home.

    ...The Princess and the Pea retelling? Set before the events of the novel. The Ghost King of Paradise Manor is selecting a bride. Xie Lian doesn't really know what he's doing there.

    Summary

    Xie Lian and Hua Cheng have been best friends since childhood, the one person Xie Lian could always depend on. After high school, Hua Cheng leaves, asking Xie Lian to come with him. Xie Lian declines, scared of holding him back. Hua Cheng visits, and Xie Lian is always happy to have him sleep on his couch, and sad to see him go. His feelings, a crush which has grown into unrequited love, stay hidden.

    Until Hua Cheng comes back to handle his father’s death, and everything changes.

    “Hua Cheng, here to see my father,” Hua Cheng said as they stepped up to the counter. Xie Lian stood close, their fingers brushing.
    “Oh,” the mortician said, nodding as he looked over at some papers. When he looked back up, his gaze landed on Xie Lian. “And he is?”
    “I’m Xie Lian,” he answered with a polite smile. The mortician frowned, looking over at Hua Cheng.
    “Only immediate family can come into the back with the deceased,” he said sharply. Hua Cheng’s brows rose, and then his left hand grabbed Xie Lian’s, their fingers tangling together.
    “He’s my husband,” Hua Cheng said, and Xie Lian felt like his knees might give out.

    Summary

    Xie Lian accidentally summons a demon while he's preparing for his Halloween party. It goes not at all how he thinks it's going to.

    (Xie Lian summons a demon, has a lot of feelings about it, has a house party, and gets thoroughly railed, in roughly that order. Happy belated Halloween!)

    Summary

    When Hua Cheng loses all his memories of Xie Lian, afflicted by a tricky curse, there’s only one way to get them back: Xie Lian has to get Hua Cheng to kiss him.

    It shouldn’t be too difficult, right?

    Xie Lian has a plan.


    “Greetings, Chengzhu,” Xie Lian said. “Apologies for the intrusion. Actually, I’ve been gifted to you by the heavens as a…”
    His voice caught.
    “I mean, to—”
    Xie Lian’s cheeks suddenly felt hot, and his palms grew damp under the rope binding his arms together. Beneath Hua Cheng’s piercing stare from above, he lost his cool.
    “As your,” he stammered. “Um, as—well—if you want, I’ve been sent to you as—I’m here to be your—”
