    Summary

    “I propose that we kill two birds with one stone,” Liu Mingyan said, and if her tone goes a bit theatrical, Jiang Cheng had the decency not to point it out.

    “I don’t follow,” Jiang Cheng deadpanned, crossing his arms. “I thought the plan was to milk this whole thing for what it’s worth and gracefully part ways when it inevitably fell apart.”

    “Yes, well. There’s a perfectly viable solution to the whole ‘falling apart’ part - you,” she said, pointing to Jiang Cheng, “Marry my brother.”

    --

    Jiang Cheng gets married in the spring of his 39th year. It turns out better than he expected.

    Summary

    Now, here’s the thing with Mu Qingfang. He’s a simple man, and he is no fool. He’s wanted Liu Qingge for something verging on a few years now, and he knows it will go nowhere. He’s made peace with that. He’s no stranger to letting his feelings fall to the side while he focuses on other things (like ruptured organs and severed limbs and crying disciples and Liu Qingge staring at Shen Qingqiu Like That). He hopes he is a good man, but at the end of the day, he is a simple man with simple needs: are people dying around him? No? Okay, good. Is he eating well? Is he getting more than 4 hours of sleep? Yes? Okay, good. Does his heart ache every time Liu Qingge comes by smelling of rust and staring at Shen Qingqiu like he hung the stars in the midnight sky? Yes? Well, alright; that’s normal. Is he thinking about accepting a proposition for sex by a man he’s been pining after for years? Yes? Well. He’s only a simple man.

    --

    Mu Qingfang is a simple man. So why in the world is the universe dead set on testing him?

    Summary

    Formerly Scum Villain's AU Manual

    Shen Yuan never expected to transmigrate, so when he does, he's at least relieved he hasn't become some poor cannon fodder character in that shitty novel he just finished reading. But as he navigates his new life, he discovers that isn't the case at all—he's landed himself right in the role of a minor villain in Proud Immortal Demon Way.

    Except ... why are things different from how he remembers them? And why did the white lotus love interest turn into the villain instead??

    Summary

    The thought had been niggling at the back of his mind quite a bit lately. He wasn’t showing Shang Qinghua proper obeisance, was he? They’d grown so comfortable in their roles - Mobei-Jun as Shang Qinghua’s king, and Shang Qinghua as his dutiful servant - that they hadn’t thought to… stop. It was how it had always been. But things were different, now, weren’t they? They’d been different for a long time now. To ignore that wasn’t proper.

    That stops now, Mobei-Jun decides. His ancestors would be rolling in their graves to see him ignore the proper rites of courtship - the fact that he and Shang Qinghua were already mated besides. He was not raised to be some kind of country rube, as much as being sequestered so far up north might imply otherwise. Shang Qinghua was his partner, and, with all factors properly calculated, the more powerful of the two. It was only proper that Mobei-Jun display an appropriate level of submission to his better.

    --

    Mobei-Jun realizes with increasing clarity that he wants to serve Shang Qinghua. Shang Qinghua does NOT pick up on it.
