    Summary

    Lan Zhan dies two years before canon and promptly wakes up in the library at Cloud Recesses right across from Wei Wuxian, napping facedown in a pile of copywork.

    He has a lot of questions. Is this the afterlife? If it's not, then is he alone with his memories? And most importantly, what does he need to do to keep his soulmate alive this time?

    Wei Ying did not stir as he knelt down by the desk. It had been so long since Lan Zhan had seen those beloved features and even longer since he’d been allowed to either get or stay this close to Wei Ying.

    He looked so different from Lan Zhan’s memories; apple cheeked, clean, and relaxed.

    Lan Zhan clamped both hands over his own mouth to stop the pained noise that threatened to escape him. Hot tears spilled down his face as he watched the young, safe, and whole boy sleep. His stomach cramped with the effort of holding the sound in, but he’d sooner die than wake Wei Ying up.

    Summary

    In a futuristic, cyberpunk Sumeru where nature is naught and hybrids are even rarer, the crime syndicate Matra are ready to crown their newest leader; the infamous hybrid Mahamatra Cyno, considered the last of his kind. Only, there is just one minor detail hidden since his birth: Cyno is not a hybrid. And should the truth come to light, he’ll have hell to pay.

    Enter the outskirts of Sumeru, where the outcasts of Gandharva hide, tending to the last of the wildlife known left in the city. Their watchleader Tighnari runs the show, but what none of them know, not even his adopted sister Collei, is that he is one of the last remaining hybrids left in the world. And should the truth come to light, he’ll also have hell to pay.

    Tangled in deathly lies and secrets, Cyno and Tighnari’s paths inevitably intertwine – and along with it comes bloodshed, gunfire, car chases, and sacrifices. Will they ever be able to find solace in this fast-paced neon city, or will they have to save themselves before they can save each other?

    Summary

    “The truth is, I -”

    “You were in the Northland Bank, settling your retirement account with my colleague,” Childe interrupts, with laughter a little too forced. “Silly me, I forgot.”

    He glares at Zhongli. What are you doing, those eyes are saying.

    Zhongli raises his eyebrows in reply. Well, what are you doing, Childe?

    Yun Jin looks carefully between the two of them and takes a long, long sip of her tea.

    - or -

    Childe and Zhongli are slow-burning. Yun Jin just wants to interview Liyue’s villain and write her opera, not third wheel.

    Summary

    That’s got to be the weirdest looking dog Ajax has ever seen in his life.

    At least, Ajax thinks it’s a dog. It’s got scraggly little ginger tufts of fur around the neck and a strip of wild fur running down the spine like a mohawk, ending in more bushy, fluffy fur bits sprouted at the end of the tail. There are also some sort of strange protrusions from its head, like antlers, or maybe tumours? Fuck if Ajax knows, he’s not a medical professional.

    But even with his lack of medical knowledge, he knows the dog-thing is in bad shape; it’s so covered in dirt and blood that Ajax can’t even tell what colour it is beneath all that grime.

    --

    In which Ajax finds, what he calls in his mind, a "Dog-Lizard", on his random walk around the city and accidentally becomes a pet parent without realizing he's adopted a god.
