Poor little thing, I am certain even my pigs have it better than him…

    Summary

    Lan Zhan should be pissed. He is supposed to be. But how could he be angry when Wei Ying just looked so...cheerful?

    "Gege! You remember my favourites!" Wei Ying exclaimed, his eyes shining with happiness.

    Wei Ying called him that? Is that why he was er-gege and not gege? Was he going to be second to Hua Cheng forever? After all, Wei Ying probably had all his firsts with that man.

    "Of course, I would never forget your preferences, A-Ying." Hua Cheng said, joining them at the table. Something about his words made Lan Zhan feel like he wasn't just talking about food.

    Summary

    It was a sunny day on the brink of summer when Sun Chen declared with utmost seriousness, “Professor Hua is a demon.”

    Professor Hua was a mystery wrapped in red, black, and silver. His beauty was that of deadly things. He was brilliant, quick-witted, and sharp-tongued: his words cut on good days and thoroughly annihilated on bad ones. More than once, he brought students to tears without remorse. He delighted in asking questions at random and always happened to choose that one thing the person unlucky enough to catch his attention didn’t know.

    ***
    There's no better thing to do when you're a millennia old ghost king with infinite knowledge than imparting that knowledge to people whether they like it or not.

    Or: a story in which history students are suffering, Hua Cheng is gleefully responsible for that, and Xie Lian is—well, Xie Lian.

    Summary

    “…Not everyone,” San Lang—Hua Cheng—corrects. “Just you.”

    “Just me?”

    “I like to think of it as a Xie Lian exclusive privilege,” says Hua Cheng, and Xie Lian imagines he must be wearing a charming grin.

    Xie Lian blushes. “Glad to know I’m special.”

    A loud thud ensues, followed by muffled cursing. Xie Lian waits, and when Hua Cheng speaks again, he sounds almost embarrassed. “Sorry, gege, I, uh. Accidentally dropped my phone.”

    (In which Xie Lian dials an unknown number and becomes utterly enamoured with the boy on the other end of the line.)
