    Summary

    As Song Lan leaves Yi city as a resurrected, sentient corpse, with two spirit-trapping pouches and an extra sword strapped to his back, he does so without any particular plan of where to go. The only thought thrumming through his mind is that he must go, get away, get as far away from this horrible place as he possibly can. It becomes a journey in more ways than one, as Song Lan grieves and remembers a time long since gone by, all the while trying to heal the two souls in his care and desperately trying to find the strength to go on.

    This is a story told in parts, the thread of Song Lan's journey intertwined with both the thread of Song Lan's and Xiao Xingchen's history as their relationship takes shape, and the thread of Xiao Xingchen's soul in the afterlife. There is grief, guilt and pain, but also a whole lot of first times, of learning to overcome fears and to trust. It is a story about love, about letting go and what it means to go on, but most of all, a story about home.

    “What about those carnations? The red ones symbolise love… or admiration, and the pink ones symbolise remembrance. You might even find them at a funeral…”

    Summary

    "Chaivat hates pale faces; he hates the way light seems to reflect on their cheekbones like water-soaked pearls, the softness that that skin, that nose, those lips seem to have, the way each stroke is defined and symmetrical. The illusion that whoever possesses this characteristic is pure and innocent.

    Chaivat knows that’s not the truth."

    or

    Five times Type's father, Chaivat, hates pale faces, and one time he doesn't.

    Summary

    Alexandra Viccario maintains a long-term relationship with her lifelong crush, Harlow Selley. However, after secretly making a promise to him, she travels back in time to be able to do things correctly, starting with her origins, knowing the past of her loved ones, until she reaches the end of her days. Through this, she gets to know various parallel worlds, where she searches for Harlow tirelessly after the memory she maintains of him, and yet, in most of the times, he doesn't even know her. In order for him to remember her, she must cross another timeline, much more far away from the previous ones. This would only end up making her wonder if he really is worth it or if she should stop everything and safe her own life.

    Summary

    “If only we could just hold onto the people, for them to stay on this Earth, right?”

    A glimpse into a simple day, a day before the meeting of Giorno and Bruno, a day before the death of Bruno Bucciarati. A rare day off, a simple time of rest and calm that comes upon Mista and Bruno, lost in their own little world of illusions upon a crappy old boat in a distant, isolated lake.

    Summary

    Dean watches out over the lake. He isn't even sure if it holds any fishes that might bite, but sitting here on the wooden boardwalk, a fishing rod lazily in his hand, just like in his dream all those years ago, he doesn't care. It's not his purpose today, whatever meaning this word might hold in heaven.

    Summary



    There's nothing you can do for them
    There's nothing you can say to her
    I am without a heart
    And the space has been broken


    But even if it’s broken, no one is saying that you can’t try to fix it, right?

     

    [Not really connected one-shots, but all of them would mention guilt, forgiveness, and how some relationship still stand even if they shouldn’t]

    Summary

    “You’ve doomed him.” Garp doesn’t raise his voice, it booms through the room none the less. “You can’t have a child; you don’t even want one-” Something cracks inside of him and he struggles to not look at his grandson. It would break his resolve to say what has to be said. “But you had one. And you’ve doomed him.”
