    Summary

    She made her way to the library, or more specifically, to the cafe that was attached to the library primarily on autopilot. She wanted nothing more than to curl up on the couch by the fireplace located in the back of the cafe with a hot tea and some quiet to decompress and read for an hour or two...or three before heading back to her dorm. 

     

    So when she opened the door to the cafe and heard someone shouting at their laptop Blake almost turned around and left....almost.

    Summary

    Fresh out of training Haijme is in need of work, badly. The cripplingly debt of University unfortunately won’t miraculously magic itself away. Well, perhaps not exactly. Out of some miracle un-known to him, he manages to land a job at Hope's Peak when he moves back to his home country of Japan. Yeah, that school, though it was prestigious, it had the hearty reputation many schools dreamed of. One that would certainly pay the bills. It’s a shame he was only hired as temporary staff. But when you need money you need money.

    Though there are some things that aren’t worth said money, he didn’t mean he wanted to deal with a certain white haired crazy-man. A man who made him realise that the drama of school life doesn’t end just because you’re on the other side of the desk. In fact, it might just be worse, especially when he realises there’s a lot more to Hope's Peak’s past than he thought.

    Summary

    Rumors has it said that the Whitechapel district, where Jack the Ripper committed his five most famous murders, has never been as peaceful as their inhabitants say. Among the numerous gossips, some talk about a shadow still roaming the streets, and some think this is Jack the Ripper himself, chasing any woman he finds, ready to commit yet another gruesome murder. Some even say they heard a deep voice humming, squeals of metal scratching against the Whitechapel houses' walls, and the sounds of footsteps running away from something invisible. But nobody ever managed to actually see a thing, a fog permanently cloaking the streets when it is late and night has already settle down, before mysteriously disappearing during the day, as if nothing happened...

    Xue Yang ends up in hospital once again after he tried to take his own life with a sword to his throat. As he wakes up he is heavily hallucinating. The same hallucinations that had been getting worse and worse over the last few days. He runs out of his room, clearly in panic and desperate, searching for something or someone. When he ends up falling down due to his still very weak body the therapist Xiao Xingchen happens to be there and witness it, quickly coming over to help and he actually manages to calm Xue Yang down.
    As Xue Yang refuses all further help Xiao Xingchen is the only one that can get through to him and convince him to stay in the hospital for a few more days and that’s the start of a relationship somewhere between the lines of a therapist and his patient and two people with growing affection for each other.

    Prompt fills that I feel are not long enough to be posted as separate stories on their own.

    Tags will be updated as more are added.

    Chapter 9: “How long have I slept, wench?” he asks and finds that the red (of blush) fits her oddly well, too.

    Chapter 10: “He doesn’t know how to love her through this in a way that brings her to the other side more gently, just a little more whole.

    But what he does know is that he’s got to try.

    Summary

    The moon shone brilliantly against a dark sky littered with stars. Like glistening sugar. A late winter breeze aimlessly piercing shivering skin. The people that paced by a blur, faceless; all he’d really focus on was how the wind tickled his stuffy nose, how the cold seemed to embrace him fully as tired feet dragged along.

    The sky was nice tonight though.

    Summary

    The suggestion knocked Huaisang onto his metaphorical ass.

    He stared at his phone for a while, then set it down and stared into space instead. Wuxian was still texting him, he could hear the messages popping up one after another, but how could he focus on that when such an amazing idea was filling his thoughts?

    It was so easy to imagine it - what an arm to be the candy on. He pictured them together, Wanyin tall and handsome and stoic except for the occasional fond smile at his very beautiful companion, him an absolute snack basking in everyone's envy. People would look so jealously at them. Perhaps there would be PDAs.

    --

    In a moment of true genius, Wei Wuxian hires acquaintance Nie Huaisang to come to family dinners as Jiang Wanyin's pretend boyfriend - THAT should get their parents off his brother's back about marrying and having kids, right? (Not that he actually runs the plan past his brother ahead of time, because consequences are for other people to think about.)

    Now Jiang Wanyin and Nie Huaisang are on Team Convince Everyone We're Dating, which would honestly be quite easy (turns out they make a great team!) if things like actual developing feelings didn't start to get in the way.
