    Summary

    Xiao hasn’t eaten a dream in two millennia. Yaksha have no need to devour dreams. If it were anyone else, Xiao would let him suffer. But he had to find Barbatos. He had to dream powerfully enough to sour the world around him. And he had to save Xiao’s life.

    Xiao leans in closer. He does not dwell in gifts or in favor. Everything has a price.

    The life he lives now, he thinks, is worth the taste of this nightmare.

    Summary

    Head curator of the National Museum of Liyue has announced earlier today that a new permanent exhibition will be opened in the Alcor building. "Love in the Time of Adepti" will display a collection of 22 letters which have been recently discovered in a dig in the archaeological site of Qingce, theorized to have been written by the last known adepti...

    Xiao reads the title and subheader once, twice, three times, before it fully registers.

    “Fuck.”

    Summary

    The secluded little shrine looked the same as always — five lion statues protectively circling the altar in the middle. And the same as always, five apples sat snugly on top, freshly plucked almost every single day. No one had ever seen who made these offerings, if they were even offerings in the first place, but there would be new apples on the altar each morning without fail.

    Until now.

    A little ways away, Morax— ah, no. Zhongli watched as the Conqueror of Demons quietly made his way towards the altar, taking refuge under the protective canopy of darkness brought on by sundown. In his hands, he carried five apples.

    Or, Zhongli wonders why the fondness shared between the God of Freedom and the Conqueror of Demons was so familiar to him, and reminisces of a time where he had found something similar.

    Summary

    There’s something horribly, horribly wrong with Venti.

    “Deposition,” Zhongli tells him over lunch. “It’s a process in which the wind slows to drop the sediment it carries.”

    Xiao frowns down at his almond tofu. “And Venti’s facing this...deposition. Is it like erosion?”

    “Similar, but not quite. Perhaps it is simpler to think of it this way -- to the rock, the wind is simply a force that wears it away over time. However, to the wind, the rock is only one stop along its journey. Each time the wind erodes another rock, it carries remnants of that rock as it travels, and the farther the wind reaches, the more pollution and dust it picks up.”

    Zhongli blows away wisps of steam from his tea before continuing. “Barbatos is the wind that blows across all of Teyvat. He takes a part of each person he meets with him, but now, he is beginning to lose himself in the midst of all that he has picked up along the way. How much of what’s left is the wind, and how much of it has become polluted with dust?”

    In which Venti loses himself and Xiao makes a choice.
