    Summary

    “This is a terrible plan,” Loki said. “Absolutely dreadful.”

    “But you’ll do it, right?” Bruce said.

    “Of course.”

     

    Five years ago, Thor died on the Statesman and Thanos wiped out half of all life in the universe. Now the Avengers have a plan to undo the Snap, but they're going to need the help of the last King of Asgard. That's not a problem; that's where things get interesting. That tends to happen around the God of Mischief.

    Summary

    “Then, what? What’s so worrisome you can’t even look at me when you say it?” Zhou Zishu said.

    “He can’t move his arm,” Chengling repeated, then looked down into his eyes. “Shifu, you’re going to have to cook.”

    -

    Zhou Zishu cooks for the first time in years and remembers the meaning of caretaking.

    Summary

    All in all, he wasn’t all that surprised about the ghost. Maybe he could’ve put a little effort into feeling shocked or afraid, but Zhou Zishu was too old and too tired to bother with something like that. He didn’t have any particular opinion on the existence of ghosts in the past, except that if there was such a thing, Zhou Zishu would be the first to know. Why would the universe wait until the afterlife to torture him for his sins, when it could start now?

    He always expected to be haunted by his actions. He just didn’t predict it would be quite so literal.

    OR; Zhou Zishu moves to an old, rotting house in the middle of nowhere to retire peacefully. He gets harassed by an annoying ghost roommate and a violent feral cat instead, and doesn't hate it half as much as he should.

    Summary

    “It’s just—“ Wen Kexing takes a deep breath, “I never thought you would leave me behind like that. Abandon me, like old footprints.”

    Zhou Zishu feels a lump in his throat that might be guilt. He sits there for a long time before speaking. “Well,” he says, and when the words finally come out they don’t sound accusatory, just resigned. A simple statement of the facts. “I never thought you would lie to me like that. So I guess we were both wrong.”

    Wen Kexing's face goes unnaturally rigid—the way someone might look if they were trying very hard not to flinch.

    Or, some things, once broken, aren’t so easily mended.
