    Summary

    “You’re going to marry the prince of Karasuno,” Kenma’s father told him on the first day of midsummer.

    King Kozume Takeshi did not so much as look up from the letter he was writing at his desk as he said it. His manner suggested he was advising that the evening meal would be held fifteen minutes late; the life-altering statement was that matter-of-fact, and carried the same expectation that he would not be questioned.

    “Very well,” Kenma said, when the skritching of the quill stopped pointedly and he realized that some sort of answer was expected of him. He blinked. “Is that all?”

    *****

    or: an arranged marriage au where everyone is in love with the wrong person.

    Summary

    “We talked about it,” Xie Lian says, hearing the frustration in his voice. “I want to go to the next step.”

    “It's okay if you don't—” Hua Cheng started.

    “I do! God, I want it so much. I don't want you thinking that I don't. I—I think about it all the time, San Lang.”

    Hua Cheng looks pleased, the tops of his cheekbones flushing to match his red shirt, and his thumb strokes the back of Xie Lian's hand.

    “What do you think about, gege?”

    --

    Xie Lian seeks a lesson in desire. And another. And another.

    Summary

    What used to be a wide open cave mouth, propped up with stalactites and mites, has collapsed, leaving a wall of uneven rock. Caving is always a danger, but they’d thought this cave was pretty safe for their study of bat behaviours. The colony living in it is stable, had been here for at least fifty years, and of course the cave has been here for millennia. Nothing going wrong for so long and then a bunch of rocks falling? It’s just his luck, really.

    Summary

    When Meng Yao loses all impulse control and kisses Zewu-jun on the cheek, his excuse is that Chifeng-zun (Zewu-jun's lover) had simply given him a message to pass on.

    Zewu-jun calls his bluff.

    Meng Yao then finds himself the messenger for a vastly different sort of messages, if you know what I mean.
