Rumours ran rife, baseless accusations piled, the beads of a headdress clinked, and the hammer came down as the order went through.
(Didn't you hear?) (Hear what?)
Sanseng Mu, our goddess of Mount Hua, lightbringer, has married a filthy, dirty mortal.
(And I hear they have a son.)
The story of Sanseng Mu and Erlang Shen, and how Erlang Shen came to trap Sanseng Mu beneath Mount Hua. A prequel to Lotus Lantern, the myth, and an extra for An Unadmitted Defeat, the fic.

“You’re Sun Wukong?!”
“—The one and only,” he gargled, food in his mouth.
When Chen Xiang came to him, he really was just a boy. Wukong thought, from his paper drum heart to his shaky-straining lungs to that glint in his eye, everything about this boy was so utterly, undeniably, human.
Sun Wukong has long returned from the Journey to the West and a demigod child seeks him out to be his disciple. Which, technically speaking, was already quite the ludicrous notion had he not been the nephew of his mortal enemy, three-eyed freak Erlang Shen. Atop of that, one would think that Sun Wukong would have some self-restraint when it came to bets, considering the last time. Apparently not. For an offer of a bet from a King was not an invitation, but a duel.

It’s like Reigen’s been waiting for the question. He stops dead on the pavement, grips Mob by the shoulders, and stares down into his eyes with an expression as haunted as though every ghost the pair of them has ever exorcised has taken up residence behind it. “Mob,” he says. “Mob,” he says again. “Tell me, Mob. Look at me and tell me. Tell me truthfully. Do I look cursed to you?”
Mob looks at him, and tells him truthfully. “No.”
“Well, you didn’t look very long,” says Reigen. “Let’s just stand here for a moment, like so, and you can have another look, a nice long look, and really think about it...”
(There's nothing strange about being called back to exorcise the same haunted photocopier six days in a row. It must just be a very haunted photocopier.)
