  2. Summary

    A collection of stories in which the brothers are emotionally repressed and don't really realize how much the other loves them. There are so many heart-wrenching near-misses in the show where they're just inches away from actually talking about the things that are really important and don't. Maybe they can't. There are some things you can only say when no one is listening, others you can't say at all, and some that just don't come out quite like you mean them. Maybe one day the Winchesters will say something precisely how they mean it with no posturing or lies or cruel insinuations to preserve their own frail self-image.

    Maybe they will. But that day is not today.


    tl;dr: Independent oneshots strung together by the theme of emotionally-constipated Winchesters. Basically, awkward attempts, abject failures, and near-misses at communicating their feelings about their deep, abiding fraternal life-partnership.

    Summary

    A non-linear string of vignettes loosely arranged around Lin Chen's recollections of his friendship with MCS/Lin Shu.

    “…sadness comes back and comes back as fragrant and lush as the grass.”
    — Xuanji Yu, from ‘The Fragrance of Orchids’, The Clouds Float North: The Complete Poems of Yu Xuanji

    This is my first fic for this fandom, and it would not exist on A03 without the encouragement of the marvelous naye, who took one for the team and beta-read a fic for a complete stranger. That's a special kind of courage.

    Summary

    Meng’s messages to Jinling and Jingyan are short and carefully edited. He writes about the skirmishes that lead to battles and the battles that lead to stalemates. He writes about the snow, how it drifts in the valleys and low places, how it melts beneath the sun and freezes again during the night. He writes about his generals, his lieutenants, and his captains. He writes about his strategist.

    He writes, Mei Changsu is a skilled tactician. His insights have led to profitable battles with low casualty rates. He silently mouths to himself, He can no longer ride a horse. I don’t know how he will travel back to Jinling, and then writes, With Mei Changsu’s assistance, we will win this war quickly and with lower costs than anticipated.

    He says to himself, “Mei Changsu is the cost,” and then covers his mouth with his hand, the scales of his gauntlet pricking at his skin.

    ---

    Meng spends a cold winter caught in a war with two fronts--the Greater Yu army on one front, and a dying strategist on the other. It's basically ten thousand some-odd words of Meng-feels, Meng&Lin Shu bromance, and the slow breaking of a man's heart as he watches his best friend die.

    Summary

    Lin Shu survives, and, with a certain amount of salutary brow-beating, finds a purpose in doing so that moves him to enter the world again, seek out his loved ones, and start walking a meaningful path forward with them. Drama with Adorable Romance, I-3

    For a long time, or what might have been a long time, he was afraid he’d failed, each time he woke. He woke weak, groggy, never able to rouse to full awareness, and he knew that sensation from a decade worth of illness, fought stubbornly against it, as he always had, to push his thoughts past the fog to grip on the world again.

    This time, though, he could never force himself past the cloudy uncertainness of almost-dreams. And what did that mean, if not failure, to fall ill again before his last task was done?
