    Summary

    The battle was over before we had even arrived. It had been a sudden thing, a completely unforeseen circumstance.
    There had been a flare-up in Guyun. Someone had dumped around a hundred sigils of permission into the surrounding seas all at once - perhaps one of the Fatui.
    There just wasn’t enough time. The Harbor had to be protected. We raced to the place as quickly as we could, Paimon and I and Zhongli with all the rest of his adepti, however -

    Venti travels to Liyue after Xiao's death, where he receives Xiao's crystal heart.

    Summary

    If a xian is an adeptus, a xianniao [仙鸟] is a mythical adeptus-bird. For all that celebrated poets like Li Bai and Bai Juyi aspire to meet and write about one, few exist, and even fewer cross paths with humans.

    So what happens when you're a lowly no-name late Tang Dynasty poet who's already failed their imperial examinations twice?

    Summary

    Bound to Whimsy, a town affected by the magic of the fae, Xiao’s clients are the fair folk. Contract-bound, he paints to please, capturing their immortality on canvas, and tells the difference between the days of eternal winter by each client he receives.

    His next client is one who brings the fresh scent of spring flowers with him and a flock of songbirds on his trail. Venti is like any other fair folk of his kind - mysterious and too-charming, removed from the worries a mortal life brings. And yet, his odd portrait request, one never asked for by Xiao before, manages to intrigue him.

    But there is no time to wonder about Venti’s portrait. Not when someone close to Xiao goes missing, and he’s forced to face his past once more.

    Summary

    Xiao knows Venti has nightmares. Once, he had heard Venti sit up fast as lightning, as if someone had tugged on his spine, and pace anxiously for a good half hour before lying down again. Venti’s left the lighthouse for nighttime flights as well, coming back to crash as if he’d run himself into the ground out there.

    Usually, Xiao doesn't say anything. Everyone has their demons and Xiao doesn’t want to overstep Venti’s battles.

    But today Venti is crying.

    Or, vulnerability is challenging.
