    Summary

    “I am going to Yanli-jie’s,” Lan Zhan grits out. “To film,” he adds pointedly, hitching his bag full of filming equipment a little higher on his shoulder.

    “At her flat?” asks his brother, eyes twinkling.

    “Yes,” says Lan Zhan resignedly.

    “Wonderful,” says Lan Huan. “Although, those sandalwood notes of your cologne - while very lovely and intense - good choice, brother... I don’t think they’re quite strong enough for your channel’s viewers to catch.”

    Lan Zhan exhales. Here it comes.

    “Unless,” says Lan Huan, “The reason for all this is at your friend’s flat instead? A person, perhaps?”

    (AU where film student Lan Zhan is an accidental vlogging sensation under the name Hanguang-jun, keeps running into his best friend Jiang Yanli’s younger brother far more frequently than he’d like, and suffers.)

    Summary

    Despite the whole thing of being not used to going door-to-door handing out posters, Hua Cheng’s instincts shove their way through his mouth and the first thing he ends up blurting out is, ‘Would you have a moment to talk about our lord and savior Xie Lian?’

    Xie Lian’s face goes surprised and his eyes go round and gods Hua Cheng finds it so stupidly adorable and he looks like he’s going to say something, mouth half-open, but before he can, Hua Cheng shoves one of his flyers into Xie Lian’s face.

    And he fucking bolts.

     

    (where hua cheng has a couple thousand more years to prepare himself to talk to his crush and he still fucks it up.)

    Summary

    In which Lan Zhan can turn into a bunny and Wei Ying is the fool who loves him.

    Based on a Tumblr post: "The most wanted woman in town has announced that she’ll only marry the one who can open her front door with the key around her cat’s neck. Many men try to hunt the cat down, chase and trap it, but to no avail; the cat is simply too quick, smart and clever, and always finds a way to evade and avoid them. You are the first one to figure out the obvious: Do not chase the cat. The cat is befriendable. Get the cat to trust you, to genuinely enjoy your company, and you can hang out with the cat. You may eventually be allowed to touch the cat. The cat will freely let you take the key. Secondary plot twist: The woman is a shapeshifter. She is the cat."

    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 exactly does partying look like?"

    Shi Qing Xuan groans. "'What does partying look like,' he asks me," she laments. "Partying looks like drinking and dancing and having fun! You were a prince, you should know stuff like this."

    "I was a serious cultivator," Xie Lian counters. "You may have heard of me." Hua Cheng laughs. "And anyway I'm not allowed to drink."

    "Foolish Prince, Swordsman Poet, no rules, just right!" Shi Qing Xuan insists. "You can go back to being repressed tomorrow. But tonight who cares."

    --

    No rules just right! Just for one night, though.
