    If a “romantic, pining, so-undeniably-irrevocably-PAINFULLY-in-love-with-someone-else orgasm” was turned into a story, this is its peak. Or is "climax" more technically appropriate? My heart was legitimately racing, chest incredibly tight, by that final section. Thus begins my quest for Kurosawa character study/development crumbs, as well as my #LetKurosawaFuck2k21 campaign.

    Summary

    When Thanatos falls in love with the kingdom's trouble-making crown prince, he is not expecting it will amount to anything more than a passing infatuation. He is also not expecting to be made the prince's bodyguard, and he is certainly not expecting the prince will ever love him back.

    Thanatos, it transpires, is wrong about many things.

    ALL THE TROPES. I WANT THEM ALL. I'm writing these notes months after first reading and bookmarking this gem of a story, but I distinctly remember just how abso-fucking-lutely pure this was. I'm already an easy sell with Childhood Friends to Lovers, but royalty AU? Fake relationships?? Mutual Pining??? I'm swooning. I'm tipsy on the A+ content. OP snuck into my brain and just...wrote everything I wanted and more.

    Summary

    Even so, there is a compartment of his heart where he stashes away the memories he cannot bear to inspect for too long, for fear that his mind, as always, will calculate the very worst outcome. On one shelf: the gray hair he found at his temple a few days ago. In a deeper alcove: the startled look on his grandmother’s face when she had forgotten his name for a moment too long when he last visited her.

    In a hidden room, maybe even a full annex shut away from the rest of his heart: Keiji’s entire sixteenth year, when a boy with incandescent eyes told him that they were the protagonists of the world, and Keiji had believed it.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    THIS MOTHERFUCKING FIC singlehandedly made me softly cry out, “oh fuck,” then less softly cry out, “oh fUCK” alone, in the middle of the night, on the fourth of July because of just how beautiful the damn experience was. The deep-seated, years-long battle of emotional pining from youth versus adulthood rationality in this is SO well written, viscerally intimate and nothing short of that wrenching, bittersweet sort of "Ah, we've grown up" sentiment. It’s the type of bitingly logical yet helpless sort of affection that rips my heart apart and squeezes out whatever could possibly be left in the damn thing. The growing up, the holding on to old memories and a bygone era, the LOVE THAT IS SO APPARENT STILL—I have too many words and simultaneously not enough to describe this rare experience. Phenomenal writing with delicious phrases that will echo in your mind for days to come.

    Summary

    Wei Wuxian’s hand jolts, spilling a drop of wine onto the tabletop. “Love?” he croaks, then clears his throat and tries again. “Lan Zh— uh, Hanguang-jun, in love?”

    “Have you not heard the story?” the other young woman asks, looking pitying. “You must, it is a truly heartrending tale of star-crossed romance and mutual pining — go to any storyhouse in town, everyone has been requesting a reading of this book.”

    “There’s a book?” Wei Wuxian says blankly.

    In which the junior disciples (namely, Lan Jingyi, Ouyang Zizhen, and a reluctant Lan Sizhui) turn to RPF in an attempt to rehabilitate Wei Wuxian's reputation so that he and Hanguang-jun can get together and get married and live happily ever after. It's... surprisingly effective.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Wow. Holy shit. Honestly—no words can accurately describe how much of an absolute fucking DELIGHT this was to read. The diction, the tone, the CHARACTERIZATION was all so glorious and heartwarming. The author's way of weaving stories through snippets of adventure, character interactions, and the descriptions of the world itself painted a narrative beautifully reminiscent of the vividness of the drama itself. The love between Wangxian was just so palpable, even more incredibly so in this post-ending setting because, even when separated, their love for each other just saturates everything they touch (the letters killed me)! EVERYONE was on board with it, too! Good lord, my heart aches so much. I just—I can’t— Also this fic has singlehandedly magnified my love for Jingyi, my new gremlin child, a million-fold.

    This was so full of that goddamn beautiful and endless soulmate love, which has honestly become one of my favorite tropes in writing (which is in large part due to my newfangled obsession with this amazing fictional universe + cast). Mwah. Delicious.

    Summary

    and that’s the core problem, isn’t it? the songs change in rhythm and pace but eventually, when you take a closer look and really listen to the lyrics, the feeling turns out identical.

    breakup songs. different words. same meaning.

    fucking disappointing.

    (or, brian desperately needs someone to sing for him. too bad jae doesn't like sad songs.)

    ALEXA PLAY LOVESONG.MP3 ALL WEEK LONG I didn't think I'd need bratty, sleep-deprived, near-manic Young K and chillin' radio DJ Jae as much as I do now. What really sells this style of writing (and, god, I needa take some notes) is in what isn't said. So much of the story is in well-placed narrative negative space, the implications, the teasing and back-and-forth between Jae and Brian. And it's done so refreshingly too! Just. Lovely.
