    Summary

    Pain lances up the side of Xiao's head, and he grips the side of the roof before he can topple from it. An exhale escapes his lips and he bends, pressing his forehead to the tiles that have been chilled with the night air. The throbbing is not unfamiliar; it aches like a Mitachurl’s blow caught to the head. Blood is smeared on the tile below him. He can’t remember how he was injured.

    (The repercussions of Rex Lapis's fall are not all obvious.)

    Rumor says the First Prince of Liyue Kindom soars free as birds, not letting anyone take a hold of him. Yet, the very same bird is willing to be caged and wrapped around a certain cacao-haired attendant's fingers.

    Summary

    The peace was back. Aether had reunited with Lumine (who was welcomed by Aether's friends with open arms) and the outlanders had decided to stay at Teyvat.

    Everything was normal... Until a spell went wrong and now they're staring at a tiny blonde boy who stares at people blankly as if he's judging their existence.

    Summary

    Aether is an enigma. He is a bright traveler, powerful enough to stand a chance against Osial, significant enough that Morax allows him to treat him as an equal, even before Morax became Zhongli. The other adepti speak to him with respect, and he to them, even with his accent, and his evident struggle with their language.

    One time, Xiao asks Zhongli where the Traveler is from. They speak in strange words and an accent completely foreign to his ears, even after two millennia of walking on Teyvat.

    Zhongli merely hums, then responds with a simple, "Far, far away. Somewhere not even the gods of Celestia may have set foot in."

    Xiao leaves it at that.

    Summary

    The two adults start chatting happily to each other, out of the children's ear reach with arms circled together. Zhongli just stares at their backs with a blank face for leaving him alone with Childe, an urge to crawl into a hole growing inside him. Zhongli turns around to face Childe, amber eyes sharp and glaring with intensity. The other boy couldn't help but sputter. "W-w-what is it?!"

    He asks, but Zhongli just raises a brow. Then, with a shit eating grin, he checks to see if their parents aren't looking, before throwing a middle finger at Childe. A scandalized gasp leaves his lips, and Zhongli skips away in victory when he sees Childe's face become red with embarrassment.

    "Mama! He just used the very bad finger!"

    "If it's a bad finger, shall I cut yours?"

    It was then that the two shared the same thought.

    This isn't my idea of fun!

    Not everyone starts of with a good start, sometimes hatred does grow into affection...and for these two? Maybe even love.

    Summary

    One law stands immutable in the world between worlds: the heavens observe and guide the lives of those below, be they god or mortal. Destiny is written in the constellations and no tale is forgotten under the watchful gaze of the stars. The earthly divine below is nothing to the cosmos above.

    To observe is all they can do as their own stars fall, exiled to the earth. Thus the travelers now walk, personally experiencing what they have always distantly seen. They will find their path from mortal to divine and from divine to mortal, connecting all the souls in between, until they reach the journey's end.

    Not once did they consider that this was always the heavens' plan.

    "Will you tell me a story?"

    "What kind do you wish to hear?"

    "Any. Tell me one that you witnessed personally."

    "Well, there is a land that I and many others once kept vigil over long ago. The mortals now call it Teyvat..."

    Summary

    With the door open for a friendship, Aether begins spending more time with Xiao, though it predictably leads to feelings. The closer they get, the higher the soar, the further they fall.
    This goes through some story and side quests and most notably, the Lantern Rite.

    While not following the prompts, I will be releasing the three parts of this series for #XiaoAetherWeek2021 on Twitter on the 17th, 20th, and 23rd! If you're reading this after those dates, enjoy skipping the wait~

    Summary

    "I'm not moping," Aether denies again.

    "When was the last time you spoke to Xiao?" Lumine asks him, her eyes narrowing.

    He silently squirms under his sister's judgmental stare. She nods in satisfaction. "That's what I thought. Which is why, dear brother, I decided to do you a favor."

    Summary

       Xiao didn’t make him angry… did he? Did he do something wrong? Snapped at the wrong time, brushed him off, something? Was all of this Xiao’s fault? Maybe—just maybe—if Xiao had been more accepting, more cordial, accepted the smiles more often, this wouldn’t have happened. If he had only given Aether a little more attention, if he’d accepted the Lanturn Right date outright like he wanted to… This was his fault, all his fault, and because of Xiao, Aether might be severely hurt. That was the only explanation. It was his fault it was his fault it was his fa—

        “Xiao?”

        He looked to Ganyu, who was carefully observing in the doorway. His breath was quick and heavy, his throat was dry, and his hands were shaking. Xiao was sure he looked like a caged animal with how he had snapped to attention. He needed to find them, and quick, but a self induced panic attack wasn’t going to get him anywhere.

        “Where’s Paimon?” he snarled.

        “With Lady Ningguang. I can take you to—”

        In a burst of teal blue and black smoke, Xiao was gone from the middle of the room.

    Aether's been kidnapped, and Xiao is forced to look at the traumatic waves of his past.
