    Summary

    In the winter of 1918, the Shelby brothers returned home from a war-torn France. In the winter of the following year, the middle brother, Tommy, recognizes an opportunity for his family to move up in the world, and it came in the shape of a misplaced crate of weapons.

    But, in the meantime, per the request of his aunt, he gives a struggling young woman a job.

    Little did he know, that like the smell of snow on the wind in late autumn, everything was going to change, and it wasn’t just because of some stolen guns.

    Takes place during Season One.

    Summary

    To drown is not merely subjective to water--indeed, there are a great number of situations as well as substances people may find themselves hopelessly submerged in.

    Love.
    Hatred.
    Obsession.
    Addiction.
    Delight.
    Sorrow.
    Greed.
    Debt.

    Or even...ink.

    But as every body of water has a source...every story has a beginning.

    Summary

    Teyvat, 1925:

    With the rise of a tyrannical faction infiltrating the city of Mondstadt along with the threat of an unusually cold winter and a third hostile faction from Snezhnaya; Lumine, a Sister of the Church of Barbatos, makes a startling discovery about herself that must be kept quiet at all costs. Diluc, a wealthy businessman with his own struggles, stumbles upon Lumine's secret entirely by accident and gives her an offer she can't refuse.

    ******
    It would be rather odd for a woman of the church to just be plucked out and staying here at the winery. People will talk.” Diluc had been a topic of conversation throughout the town since he had come back from his excursion, either good or bad.

    “That’s why I have a proposal to make.”

    And that’s when he reached inside his coat pocket and took out a small black box with gold linings. He opened it and inside was a gold ring with a garnet center. It was the darkest shade of red.

    “I realize this requires some explanation, Lumine, but the best course of action right now is for us to get married.”

    Summary

    1920s Germany; the rise of social freedoms, a revolution from the underground, a chance to become someone new. Many were flocking to the city of Berlin on a quest to become someone they had always dreamed of, with new freedoms posed in the post-war era. Levi Ackerman had never known any different than the city everyone now loved, living and running one of the underground bars himself.

    There were the usual guests who he had come to know well over the years - so when a tall, handsome, Englishman walked in looking confused and immersed, he couldn't help but question why he was there, and who he was.

    A story about love in Weimar Germany, as the growth of fascism creeps from differing parts of the underground, competing with the new, regenerated freedoms of the country.

    Summary

    “And what’s with all the black, ah? You must dress this way deliberately to ruin things for the rest of us.”

    Xiao Zhan’s remark is met with silence, so when he is done taking the next photo, he puts his camera down and looks in Wang Yibo’s direction. Yibo’s face is serious as he considers his hands, which are plucking at the seams of the cushions. Xiao Zhan knows he’s misstepped somewhere, but he can’t think of how he managed to do so. He opens his mouth, to say what, he’s not sure, but Wang Yibo beats him to the punch.

    “They’re mourning clothes,” he says seriously.

    “Oh,” Xiao Zhan says. He feels like all the wind has been knocked out of him. “Yibo, I’m s—”

    “Don’t. It’s okay. You don’t need to apologize. Just wanted you to know. The black just seems appropriate.”

     



    Xiao Zhan is a private detective hired to investigate Wang Yibo for the death of well-to-do Mrs. Archer's deceased brother—Wang Yibo's late husband, Frank Ellsworth. Things quickly get complicated when Xiao Zhan meets Yibo while undercover as a photographer for a local newspaper and develops feelings instead of making headway on his case.
