    Summary

    Zhao Yunlan wasn't really into blockbuster movies and sensational television until he was assigned to guard the rising darling of Chinese drama. And even then, he wouldn't say he was super into it, more like he was only specifically into anything with the name "Shen Wei" attached to it. But as he got to know the beautiful actor and slowly perused every title he'd ever been in, Zhao Yunlan couldn't quite get over the feeling that he had seen him somewhere else before. Or at least, someone who looked strikingly similar.

    It's been quite a while since I read a fanfic which gave me so much uncomplicated joy, from the fantastic characterisation to the excellently-written banter to the main relationship, which is the perfect balance of sweetness and sensuality.

    Summary

    After a crazy night out at a club and a one night stand, Zhao Yunlan found himself enraptured not with the man who brought him home, but the man's quiet, gentle roommate. However, the mysterious man refused to let Zhao Yunlan even know his name, much less anything about him.

    Soon, Zhao Yunlan found out that there's something deeply unsettling surrounding the roommates. There had to be a reason why Mr Handsome Roommate appeared to be scared of him, right?

    A fic which manages to incorporate a number of references to Guardian drama and novel canon/fanon while still telling its own story instead of merely being a Mundane AU of canon.

    Summary

    Zhao Yunlan makes it out of Dixing alive. The price he pays is higher than he knows how to cope with. Life goes on, though, and gets even more confusing when Shen Wei suddenly returns—without his powers. Working through what's happened between them would be difficult enough, but before long, Zhao Yunlan has to realize there's much more to being Haixing's Guardian than he ever knew.

    As someone who usually gives stories with prominent h/c tropes a wide berth, I was pleasantly surprised by the accuracy of characterisation and solidity of plot on display here. A credit to this genre of fan fiction!

    Summary

    There's something lurking in the hills around the Alliance headquarters. Something big, fast, and deadly.

    Also, General Kunlun is suspiciously bad with a dao.

    It's always a lovely surprise to encounter a well-written action-mystery story in a small fandom like that of Guardian, especially one set in the Past arc - which was poorly executed in the show and tends to get short shrift from the fandom. Black Scales sidesteps the common flaws of YOHE era fic re: plot, worldbuilding and characterisation to deliver an interesting, enjoyable reading experience while still remaining largely drama canon-compliant.

    Summary

    "It is very tedious,” Professor Shen agrees, setting down his cup of tea. “I admire your forbearance.”

    “I have no forbearance,” Zhao Yunlan assures him. “I get drunk a lot and throw things.”

    or, the lawyers AU that no one asked for.

    A charming little fic with clever dialogue and sparkling characterisation, complemented by a crisp, quaint writing style.
