    Summary

    On the couch, he could see a head of dark hair, loose against the couch as the person leaned their head back, sighing. From his vantage point, Xie Lian could see that the figure was flipping through the pages of the journal that had been on his bedside table. They were curled up comfortably, their feet up on the couch, their knees up near their chest as the book rested on it. As he took a step closer to the couch, ready to attack, the figure finally spoke.

    “I suppose it’s time we finally met,” The figure turned, and Xie Lian was faced with the strangest thought, the thought that maybe this had been the prettiest boy he had ever seen, “Hello, Gege.”

    “Hello,” Xie Lian said breathlessly, “And who might you be?”

    The boy smiled, “Gege can call me San Lang, but I suppose I used to be known as Xiao Hua.”

    Summary

    “You can't retire,” Yuri interrupted fiercely, or, at least as fiercely as he could with tears pouring down his cheek and snot dripping from his nose, turning his face to glare up at Yuuri with red, puffy eyes.

    (Yuri skated his heart out and he still didn't know if it would be enough.)

    Summary

    Xie Lian never judged a book’s contents by its cover. He had read plenty of good books over the years that had plain or uninteresting covers. Usually the title or summary compensated for the plain exterior and would be the reason Xie Lian pulled the book off of the shelf. Sometimes he’d take a book out of sheer curiosity, even if nothing drew his attention. Those were often the books where he would be pleasantly surprised. Underneath plain dust jackets could be hidden intricate gold leaf designs. Some may have folded maps in the back cover. Or, on rare occasions, Xie Lian would find the pages edged in gold, a feature that could not be seen until the book was pulled off the shelf to shimmer under the light.

    One day while perusing the stacks at the library, he finds a book shelved apart from the others, as though peerless. The plain dust jacket was in taters, revealing the faded red cloth of the hardcover underneath.

    And it was filled with paper butterflies.

    OR a 90s nostalgia modern AU where Xie Lian randomly meets Hua Cheng over a poetry anthology and they fall in love (slowly) and get up to shenanigans with their friends.

    Written for the 2021 MXTX Big Bang event.

    Summary

    ”Why?” Shi Qingxuan asked. “Why would you entrust such a valuable thing to me?”

    Leaning back with his palms supporting his weight, He Xuan stared at the skies and sighed in defeat. “You already know why, Shi Qingxuan.”
