    Summary

    Deep in the heart of the city of ghosts, a chisel breaks stone. Alone in the candlelit studio, Hua Cheng bows over the remaining boot and chips away slivers of veined marble. The sculpture is nearly finished, has been for weeks. The details he cuts into the lower foot now are so fine as to be invisible if viewed from any further away than a single step.

    Above it, ornate robes are swept back on a frozen wind and a sword halfway from its sheath cuts across the sculpture’s waist. With its weight perched on the front foot as if a breath away from leaping and the candelight rosy across its cheeks and brow, the sculpture looks as if it is only a heartbeat from life. Except—

    Hua Cheng takes a step back, tilting his head to survey his creation from toe to brow.

    A blank face stares down.

    •••
    Hua Cheng emerges from Mt. Tong’lu looking for someone he cannot name, cannot place, cannot picture. For centuries, he chases fragments of memory—until he stumbles upon a cultivator in white who might be the answer to the questions he has carried for eight hundred years.

    Summary

    Hua Cheng is passion and loyalty personified when he speaks, his voice a raw whisper. “Let me love you. Let me show you. I promise you, I’ll never leave you. I’ll never hurt you. I’ll forever be devoted to you, and only you.”

    Xie Lian used to think he had experienced every emotion there was to experience in this world, but he was wrong. Being loved by Hua Cheng is like being a butterfly, delicate and precious, held in the cusp of his hands with all the gentleness in the world, being kept safe from the raging winds and the way people could be cruel. And suddenly, everything he’s ever done makes sense to him, it means something now, all because Hua Cheng sees him. He knows him.

    One person is enough.


    Or: A post-canon story of Hua Cheng and Xie Lan talking and learning and exploring intimacy together.

    Summary

    Imagine a swarm of silver butterflies the ghost changed into, imagine them flutter towards the night sky, brighter than the stars themselves. Imagine the god watch them in awe, entranced by the spectacle of wonder he hadn’t been expecting to see.

    It could have started like that. But it didn’t.

    Instead, this iteration started like this:

    The ghost in red touched the hem of Xie Lian’s veil and Xie Lian…

    Let him.

     

    ***
    A story in which Xie Lian meets a ghost in the woods of Mount Yu Jun and in him finds someone he's lost hope to find.
