    Summary

    “You--- fine. That’s fair enough, Xiao, but take this into consideration at least.” Verr Goldet turns to him and looks him straight in the eye with the determined look of a mother.

    “Immortals like you have a lot of time. But as far as I can tell, the biggest problem with immortality might just be forgetting how much time you don’t have.”

    Summary

    Such a tender heart, beneath it all. Morax wonders at it – that a creature so fundamentally gentle could survive something so fundamentally cruel.

    “In the fables of another world,” Morax murmurs, “the name Xiao is that of a spirit who encountered great hardship. He endured much suffering, as you have.” His thumb brushes beneath Alatus’s eye, catching the tear before it can fall. “Use this name from now on.”

    A story about love, devotion, and vulnerability, told in six parts. Or, five lessons Zhongli learns from Xiao during their thousands of years at each other's sides, and one lesson Xiao learns from him.

    Summary

    Tartaglia approaches him a lot. Lips curved amicably, gaze slanted slyly. He mingles with him as though they share a form of affinity, a bond. Ridiculous. Cynicism drills repeatedly into his skull, mistrusting of the interest the eleventh Harbinger has taken in him.

    (Or, two men who are emotionally stunted by their own immortality inadvertantly turn an overly enthusiastic chef into their messenger pigeon.)
