    Summary

    For a year and a half, Xie Lian has served--endured--at his Emperor's knee. As Jun Wu's personal pet, the experience has been more painful and humbling than he could possibly have predicted. But when a chance encounter gives Xie Lian the opportunity to escape Jun Wu's grip, he finds support in the last place he would have thought possible: the waiting arms of the most feared ghost king in the three realms.

    (Or: Xie Lian escapes a terribly abusive relationship and recovers with Hua Cheng's help, featuring hurt/comfort with Hualian happy ending.)

    Summary

    Have you heard? Hua Cheng, the richest businessman of London is buying the Xian Le manor! Yes! The founder of the Ghost City casinos and the owner of Paradise Manor hotel! Uh? What Xian Le manor? Do you not remember? The one that belonged to that noble family which-you know. Only their child is still living. An Omega at that! Poor little thing, I am certain even my pigs have it better than him…

    The Regency Era AU nobody asked for but my brain and my hands demanded. Enjoy if you do read it

    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.
