    Summary

    "What exactly does partying look like?"

    Shi Qing Xuan groans. "'What does partying look like,' he asks me," she laments. "Partying looks like drinking and dancing and having fun! You were a prince, you should know stuff like this."

    "I was a serious cultivator," Xie Lian counters. "You may have heard of me." Hua Cheng laughs. "And anyway I'm not allowed to drink."

    "Foolish Prince, Swordsman Poet, no rules, just right!" Shi Qing Xuan insists. "You can go back to being repressed tomorrow. But tonight who cares."

    --

    No rules just right! Just for one night, though.

    Summary

    “The first stroke, the commitment, is always the most difficult part,” he murmurs, eyes on his paper.

    Xie Lian takes it as an invitation and steps into the room. “What about deciding which stroke is the last?”

    “My art never quite compares to my subjects, so I don’t worry myself with perfection.” With that, he puts brush to paper and inks his first stroke.

    Xie Lian needs a room for the night in a new city and is humbly directed to the one ghost who can fulfill any wish if you're willing to play.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    His guard has never been so low. Trust is such a delicate thing, broken over and over again with no reprieve. It’s been proven to him after so long that trust should be something hard won. So then why has he trusted Hua Cheng so easily and so thoroughly? Hardly half a night of acquaintance and he had climbed into his bed, spread his legs, and let himself really feel alive again. Vulnerability is so dangerous—why does it feel like the only answer?

    Summary

    Xie Lian doesn't think his virginity is a problem until Pei Ming starts 'helping' him find candidates to lose it. Xie Lian takes matters into his own (and Hua Cheng's) hands. Of course, his bad luck won't leave him so easily: after their first night together, all clues point towards Hua Cheng mistaking him for a prostitute.

    This is probably salvageable.

    Summary

    “Today,” Hua Cheng announces, barging into He Xuan’s disaster of a room, really another realm fit for Eldritch monsters with the way his eyes refuse to focus entirely in the glow of He Xuan’s four million black-shaded lamps, “gege kissed me. On the cheeks. Both of them. Are you listening?”

    “I could’ve been masturbating,” says He Xuan.

    “Your dick is small enough that I wouldn’t notice, I’m sure. Like jacking off a little peanut.”

    “You—”

    Pretending to date Xie Lian is a lot like gambling. Roll on, slot machine. Roll on.

    Summary

    Hua Cheng has wanted Dianxia for so long he doesn’t know how to survive knowing that Dianxia is his at long last. Worse still, Dianxia doesn’t seem to have any interest in consummating their relationship, leaving Hua Cheng in the midst of his greatest trial yet: keeping his lust from consuming them whole.

    But a gem cannot be polished without friction, nor a man perfected without trials - and after everything, Hua Cheng will not let this trial be the one that defeats him.

    “San Lang, allow me to be as plain as possible. I want you to fuck me until I cannot walk.”

    Hua Cheng staggers backward and catches himself only by sitting on the bed.

    The blush on Dianxia’s face has deepened. “I leave myself in your care.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “People who've opened me up like a letter don't have to call me by my title.”

    He doesn't mean to say it, didn't know he was going to. It's just there, spoken already. Was there blood, he wonders. How deeply did she have to open him up? Did she have to reach into muscle, move aside his bones? Or was it only his meridians she touched, only the energy of his life, only the shape of his soul?

    He hopes it was bloody. He hopes her fingers reached inside him in every imaginable way; he hopes she had to scrub him out from under her nails.

    The thought shocks him in its wildness, its hunger; he twitches away from it. “Is it reversible?” he asks. It would put him under her hands like that again, raw and open. He would do it.

    “So you’re really telling me.” Wei Ying, flushed red and bunched up with his knees to his chest, is staring. Sort of abjectly, sort of disbelievingly. “This is a sex curse?”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There had been many, many times when Lan Wangji wished there wasn’t. His love for Wei Ying had been, for a long time, a forest fire. Consuming everything in sight, wide enough to burn all of his previously held notions to ash. Over the years, it has simmered into something manageable but no less warm, a hearth rather than a brush fire. Something he tends to with practiced and intentional care, rather than something he must contain from destruction.

    His sect doesn’t speak of it, but they all know the truth of the Lans’ romantic curse. Lans love to madness and beyond it, to death and back.

    Wangji is likely the most accomplished living master of qin language, although he doubts anyone else alive knows it as most of his mastery has come in solitude and seclusion, trying to find all the things he wishes to say to, and have said to him by, one spirit in particular.

    Wei Ying, he plays, it is my birthday you fucking bastard god damn piece of shit.

    Summary

    It’s a really unfortunate thing, developing a crush on your husband. Wei Ying had assumed this would be easy. Lan Zhan had been so icy and unpleasant to him, it had never occurred to him that he might end up spending the next however many years with this dumb, burning feeling in his chest whenever he looks at him.

    “Okay,” says Wei Ying. “But tell me if I…if the pretending gets to be too hard, okay?”

    “It will not,” says Lan Zhan, quietly certain.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The truth was, Jerry found the female form just objectively better, in an artistic sense. It doesn’t mean he had never considered what it would be like to be with a man, but that was another story. Maybe he was blind to a certain nuance of sexuality that had nothing to do with objective beauty, but some other form of wanting.

    Prim has learned that if she asks for something directly, Gale has a hard time saying no to her. So when he knocks on her door on Saturday morning, the week after her fourteenth birthday, Prim opens it with Katniss’s bow in her hand and the quiver of arrows slung over her shoulder. She’s hunched over awkwardly, unused to the weight. A shadow falls over Gale’s face.

    “Please,” she says before he can say anything. “Will you show me?”

    or, Katniss dies in the 74th Hunger Games. Prim and Gale are left behind.

    “He glances at her, a retort ready on his lips, but the view of Ciri framed by the morning sun makes the breath leave him wordlessly. She’s stunning, he realizes. Wisps of silver hair spin around her, and a sheen of sweat highlights every bare inch of her skin, smooth despite her hard travels and marked with the occasional scar.

    He’s always known his ward was beautiful, but now-- now something has shifted, changed. Not with her, he understands with dread, but with him.”

    Or, in which Geralt is angst personified and Ciri really just wishes he’d asked her opinion to begin with.

    I knew I should have said something then – or a year before that, or two years, whenever. I should have set her free and let her move on to one of the princes, like she’d have to do in the end. Maybe I’d never find anyone else I loved the same way – I mean, you find that once in a lifetime if you’re lucky – but I could at least have tried to get over her.

    But love’s a powerful thing. It survives even when it shouldn’t
