    Summary

    Yuanxiao Festival was one of Zhou Zishu’s least favourite times of the year. It wasn’t the problem of thousands of lanterns clogging up the streets and rooftops of the Imperial City, making it more challenging to conduct Tian Chuang business. It wasn’t the throngs of people who packed into the Imperial City from beyond to enjoy the spectacle, or the increased risk of a fire hazard, or the thousands of perfectly edible mandarin oranges being thrown into the river. It wasn’t the fact that Tian Chuang business often ground to a halt during the lunar new year period, leaving Zishu at loose ends. It was all of that, all at once.

    Summary

    “Or maybe you should get a cat,” Neil says, grinning, and that is – well. It’s a joke, obviously, a throw-away comment, obviously, it’s ridiculous, obviously, but it’s–

    It’s something to think about.

    (Or: The slow evolution of Andrew and the cats. And Neil. Obviously.)

    Summary

    Andrew's primary drive has always been to protect those important to him.

    Or, that time the author tried to answer the question "what tattoo would Neil get if he chose one for himself", was handed the counter-question "what if Andrew learned how to do tattoos in juvie", and ended up exploring Andrew's entire backstory to dig up feels.

    Summary

    Andrew is looking to live his life in peaceful nothingness, but his new neighbor's cat won't stop sneaking onto his balcony. As much as he tries to not make it into something, Andrew finds himself drawn to the mysterious and tempting man next door.

    Neil is just trying to find a reason to not leave Palmetto after everyone else has moved on. But he never thought he would want to run toward something in favor of running away.

    (In a slightly different world, two people find themselves meeting in a softer setting and in just as much need of each other. A story about dealing with pasts, sharing secrets and a cat who is an asshole yet manages to charm everyone around it.)

    Summary

    Neil has temporary amnesia, and Andrew is disconcertingly attractive. This is especially disconcerting because Neil was pretty sure he didn't swing. Nicky is endlessly pleased by the entire situation.
