    Summary

    “—comes on stage, and it's like someone gave a kid too much sugar, then let him loose, but when he starts singing, he's like a totally different person! Watch, watch, watch! He's about to do it! Watch!”

    JingYi shushed his silent friends and was elbowed by Jin Ling. The following scuffle was brief, and in the quiet afterward, Lan WangJi froze, teapot just tipped over a cup, as a familiar laugh, garbled by feedback and background noise, burst from the phone.

    Carefully, he set the teapot back down, attention now sharply focused on the recording JingYi was playing. Despite the quality, despite the fact that it had been years since he had heard that laugh, he still knew the sound in the center of himself, in the place where music resonated when he played. He knew the timbre of it, knew the way it would make that person's nose scrunch up and his eyes sparkle and his shoulders shake.

    Summary

    It was meant to be a consult, simple, quick, to tell the family and patient that there wasn’t much he could do. Even after all the other doctors, the tests, the treatments, and the huge stack of documentation on his desk that told him this poor patient could only remain comfortable until his final moments.

    So how had it ended up like this?

    Summary

    “You know, you’re the one to beat this year,” Jiang Cheng offers helpfully, having seen the glare from right next to him. “Hanguang-jun’s been through juniors with the rest of us, he knows all of our tics. You’re an unknown variable, since he’s never competed against you before.”

    “Thanks,” says Wei Wuxian drily. “That’s very comforting.”

    Or: five nighthunting competitions where Wei Wuxian and Lan Wangji were rivals, and one where they weren't.

    Summary

    Yuuri Katsuki has been betrothed to the High King's son, Victor, since he was just a child; furthermore, as an omega, he's forbidden from practicing magic in combat. For years, he's been able to put off the former because the Prince was traveling abroad, and gotten around the latter by practicing with his mentor in secret.

    Now Victor Nikiforov has finally returned home, and Yuuri is being summoned to the capital for their wedding. He needs a plan to put off marriage long enough to find a way to break the betrothal, while keeping his practicing from being discovered.

    If only the Prince didn't have other ideas.

    (Or, the swords-and-sorcery arranged marriage AU. Updates weekly.)
