    Summary

    “—I’ll do anything, Zhongli!” Childe cries. “So please, if you have ever loved me, give me the power to fix this!”

    He pulls Zhongli onto his lap, back flushed against his chest. When he buries his tear-streaked face into the curve of Zhongli’s shoulder, he still smells like glaze lilies and incense. So incongruent with the acrid stench of the battlefield.

    “...Ajax…”

    Childe pulls back to see the last vestiges of gold swirl in the Archon’s exhausted eyes.

    “Go with my blessings.”


    When Liyue faces an inevitable catastrophe, Childe finds himself back in the past to retrieve the Gnosis that Zhongli has lost. Perhaps if he returns to the present with it, both Liyue and its Archon can be saved.

    Summary

    It’s been two months since the storm, and Childe hasn’t seen Zhongli not even once, not since that fateful meeting with the Signora where the truth is finally unveiled.

    And what a fun little kick to the gut that is, the realization that not only had he been played by all sides, but he's also being tossed aside like trash now that his use had run its course.

    It’s not that Childe doesn’t get it. He’s a Harbinger. He knows first-hand what it means to do his duty, to put the mission first and his personal feelings far, far away, preferably locked up in a box, where it wouldn’t interfere with his job. He knows what it’s like working with vipers, to scheme and plot and lie in wait for the opportune moment to stab his opponent in the back.

    But this time, this time Childe can’t help but feel a little (a lot) gutted.

    Stupid. He’s gotten himself stupidly attached.

    --
    A story about Childe trying to move on after the events of 1.1 Update, but some of his actions have consequences, and those consequences have followed him back to Snezhnaya.

    NOTE: THIS FIC WAS DRAFTED BEFORE 1.1 UPDATE CAME OUT. MIND THE CANON-DIVERGENT TAG FOR THIS REASON.

    Summary

    “Ziyuan,” Jiang Fengmian asks one evening as both him and his wife are preparing for bed. “Do you notice how our youngest tends to attract…a different sort of trouble?”

    Ziyuan, who’s been busy removing her pearl earrings, goes still. She looks at him through the reflection of her vanity mirror. “Trouble? Our A-Cheng?” The unspoken ‘how absurd’ tacked on to the end is as clear as day. Still, she asks, “What do you mean?”

    Ah, how can he put this delicately without sounding preposterous? “By trouble I mean in the form of attention.” A pause. “Lots of attention. Possibly in the form of, uh, seasoned gentlemen.”

    Yu Ziyuan turns around and gives him a long, quiet stare. “Fengmian,” she enunciates slowly, carefully, “are you telling me that our son is a magnet for perverted old men?”

    Summary

    To say that Inazuma’s Mission is a disaster is putting it lightly. What happened in Inazuma is unequivocally a clusterfuck with a capital C, a shit storm of epic proportions not unlike the one raised by Osial himself during the Liyue Mission, which, coincidentally, also tanked the Fatui’s reputation. Dear Archons, it tanked the Fatui’s reputation so hard and so fast that Pulcinella will be lucky if he can manage to dredge up its shattered remains from the depths of the Earth in which it now lays.

    Luckily, Pulcinella has a Plan to fix things, and it all starts with an old, black-and-white photo of Tartaglia in a glorious winter coat.
