    Summary

    Wen Kexing has been pining for Zhou Zishu for years. But the cold beauty never looked at him with anything but irritation. Wen Kexing won't give up though. A wise man once said, "Even the coldest women can't resist clingy men."

     

    Or, the Hogwarts AU where Wen Kexing pines, Zhou Zishu is an idiot and there's a love potion involved in there somewhere.

    Summary

    Perhaps he should have looked at the jingshi first — only it had been so many years since either of them set foot near the place of their mother’s imprisonment. It was a memory that took him there at last, a memory of another search, ended much sooner then. At nine, Lan Huan had known just where his missing brother would be. It was with a strange doubled vision that he saw him there now, kneeling before a closed door. As then, Wangji’s hands were clenched by his thighs. As then, he knelt perfectly still, white robes falling like folds of stone.

    Summary

    “You can go on, if you want,” he said when Zhou Zishu stopped for breath. “Scold and punish me for seven years, then I will scold you for the next seven, and then we’ll have to find something else to do.”

    The thought of years took any other words out of his mouth. Zhou Zishu had gotten used to measuring time in thimblefuls. A New Year’s day, a drift of peach blossoms blown off the trees: each one, perhaps, the last he would see. There wasn’t a container in his mind big enough to hold years, decades, centuries.

    Summary

    An ill-fated parent teacher conference reunites Jin Ling's wayward uncle with Sizhui's father. AKA: A matchmaking disaster as told by Jin Ling, Sizhui, and Jingyi.

     

    Jin Ling knows he’s in deep trouble even before reporting to Headmaster Lan’s office, but the words “your uncle will be here soon” still strike the fear of God in him. His only consolation is that Jingyi and Sizhui’s guardians are also in the office, Jingyi’s mom already lecturing her sheepish-looking son. Lan-ayi only stops when Sizhui’s father, a quiet and tall man in white, clears his throat, causing her to engage him in one-sided smalltalk.

     

    This is a disaster. Jin Ling had spent such a nice break at home for Mid-Autumn Festival, and Fairy’s presence had soothed his homesickness after returning to boarding school in Gusu. He knows pets aren’t allowed, but who is going to report Jin Ling when his father pays good money for a private suite in the dorms? Then there was the incident with Jingyi, a box of mooncakes, and a door left ajar. Long story short, he spent an hour chasing Fairy down the halls with Sizhui and Jingyi before finding his dog nosing up to a very angry Headmaster Lan.
