    Summary

    Shang Qinghua gets snowed in at the office. With a dead phone and no way to get home, his best option for the night is the one presented by a rather prickly boss.


    “How are you getting home?” Mobei Jun asks, and Shang Qinghua shrugs.

    “Walking?” He suggests, and Mobei Jun narrows his eyes. “Well, no, it's too far and there are no cars nearby. So I was thinking I’ll just stay at a hotel…”

    Shang Qinghua trails off as he is met with silence. Mobei Jun simply stares at him, his icy blue gaze pinning Shang Qinghua to the spot. Shang Qinghua thinks he can see an idea percolate behind the man’s eyes, but it is most likely a trick of the light. After all, what could he—

    “I live a ten minute walk away,” Mobei Jun states more than says. “It may just be easier to stay the night at my place.”

    Summary

    Shang Qinghua goes to take a self-indulgent peek at his baby protagonist son and gets a kick to the shrivelled heart for his troubles. He gave up on changing the story years ago! Yet he finds himself helping his protagonist son's adoptive mother anyway. Just this one change won't matter too much, right?

    One little change leads to more. Shang Qinghua never meant to care, but he becomes invested in making sure that his new family survives the looming plot. With the changes to the world cascading around him, with his position as a traitor pulling him between his sect and a certain ice demon, and with the protagonist growing up so quickly, how is one displaced author meant to ensure that everything turns out all right?

    A Pre-Canon to Canon Divergence story.

    Summary

    There are times when Lan Zhan pictures the version of himself that is human. Fist-sized muscle beating in his chest, the precarious architecture of a skeleton, wet muscle and visceral organs. He sees that Lan Zhan swallowing and setting his jaw, although the real Lan Zhan does not make those motions. The movement of his mouth is only a formality, a quirk of programming to soften the strangeness of his existence, as he says, “You weren’t here.”
