    Summary

    She looked at him strangely, “Daozhang is the priest of this shrine, yes?”

    Xie Lian froze, looking off to the side he coughed into his closed fist. “Ah, yes... I am.”

    “Then you must know about the tale of eight hundred years!”

    Xie Lian shook his head.

    Qi Ling let out an indignant gasp. Looking at him with wide eyes and an even wider mouth, she frantically shook her head. Xie Lian couldn’t help but feel as if the roles were suddenly switched and now he was the one being admonished.

    “Daozhang! You must have heard of it! It’s one of the Crown Prince of XianLe’s most famous stories. The tale of the scrap collecting god and his most devoted believer, how he waited eight hundred years for his beloved to return to him?”

    Xie Lian choked on air. No he did not hear of such a tale. He would've known.

    (or, Xie Lian hears a prayer in the middle of the night. Mournful and agonizing as it screams out his name with a deafening cry. When he goes to investigate he ends up learning more than what he had come for.

    More specifically, why half his prayers are directed towards wishes for good marriage and love advice.)

    Summary

    The night was quiet. The crickets were subdued, and even the crisp breeze that rustled the leaves in the gardens was reverent, as though the peace that settled in this little village was something too precious to mar.

    Though they had retired to bed early, his nerves were on fire from lying so close to his beloved. Xie Lian’s breathing had ease into a peaceful pattern, but Hua Cheng hadn’t needed sleep in centuries, and he certainly wasn’t about to waste this night away with it. As the hours crept by he slowly relaxed; alone and under the cloak of the night, he could allow his desperate want to bleed through his carefully crafted skin.

    --

    Or, in the aftermath of Banyue Crescent and in the still of Puqi Shrine, Hua Cheng allows himself to want.

    Summary

    Binghe’s grip on him gentles. “Oh, Shizun… You must have been lonely with me away, to turn to someone like him. No need to worry - I’m here now to take care of you.”

    “I don’t need your ‘care’,” he says stiffly.

    Binghe smiles, his teeth a bit too white and sharp. “I haven’t forgotten how much Shizun hates demons, but that’s alright. I’ll make Shizun’s body love me, until he can’t live without me no matter how much he hates me.”

    Luo Binghe doesn’t pick charisma as his dump stat, but sacrifices his morality for it. Shen Qingqiu is left to suffer the brunt of the deep chasm of affection his disciple has nurtured towards him, all in an effort to protect the man he’d once thought to rely on to save his life.

    Summary

    Transported back in time, Megumi must rely on the only familiar face in Heian Japan. Ryoumen Sukuna, a curse to some and deity to others, decides to keep him.

    The futility of Megumi’s plans distilled into desperation, which had him contemplating that name again: Ryoumen Sukuna, the only familiar one here.

    But the people spoke of Sukuna in this era with utter terror. There was no air of triumph like in the modern day. Sukuna hadn’t been sealed yet, and the world knew him as the unbeatable, invincible King of Curses. He wasn’t the Sukuna that Megumi knew.

    Summary

    [“What are you doing?” Megumi asked.

    “Checking which shot looks the worst,” Getō-sensei replied conversationally. “You know, this is going to make everyone’s day. Who would’ve thought that you could be this considerate, Megumi?”

    Sometimes, Megumi, like the fool that he was, tended to forget that Getō Suguru was as horrible a human being as Gojō Satoru.]

     

    In which Getō never quite spiralled, SatoSugu teach together at the jujutsu tech, use PDA to win arguments against the higher-ups and Megumi suffers. (Set during chapter 2/episode 2!)
