    Summary

    “Oh my god, oh my god, please don’t drown yourself in Shufu’s vintage tub—“
     
    The panicked little plea dies on Lan Xichen’s lips as something extraordinary, something magical and horrifying happens in front of his stunned eyes. 

    As soon as the water covers him completely, the young man twists like a snake and presses his legs together.
    Skin trembles and crackles - the transformation would be grotesque, if it weren’t so beautiful. A thick golden tail unfurls like a glittering stole. It’s so long it has to coil twice to fit in the tub, scales glittering like a sunken treasure.

    Retired swimmer Lan Xichen rescues someone, but that someone isn't quite human. He makes himself very much at home in his bathtub, however. (A mer/human romcom with a very mild sprinkle of angst)

    Summary

    The Emperors of Astandalas did not have daemons.

    Cliopher knew this could not, technically, be true. Thinking this thought, even in the quietest whisper in his deepest heart of hearts, was undeniably treason, but…. facts were facts: The Emperors of Astandalas, though worshipped as gods on earth, were each of them born a human being before they were apotheosized by the crown and by law and custom. Every human being had a soul; therefore, every human being had a daemon.

    So the Emperors of Astandalas must have had daemons.

    But by tradition and ritual and magic and taboo: The Emperors of Astandalas did not have daemons.

    Summary

    Lan Xichen looks at his husband. Now that he is closer, he sees just how thin these inner robes are; they shiver and flutter with every nervous breath. Without those extra layers, the slim curves of his muscles are clear. Without the headpiece, Meng Yao is left with a plain knot and a cascade of dark hair falling over his shoulders. And there is the damp sheen of scented oils along the length of his collarbone, exposed: a sign that Meng Yao has bathed since Lan Xichen was detained. He can smell the sandalwood and lavender.
     
    “Does it please you,” Meng Yao breathes, “Zewu-Jun?”

    He has prepared for the wedding night, Lan Xichen realises.

    ***

    The honourable Zewu-Jun takes a Wen prisoner of war as his husband, against his uncle's advice. Meng Yao rises to the occasion.
