    Summary

    Celestia’s way of chaining up the archons - who are, unquestionably, the strongest in each region - is tied to their gnoses.

    After all, in exchange for directly tapping into the energy from Celestia, there must be consequences of an equal magnitude.

    The first time, Celestia wins.

    He looked up and couldn’t help but feel a pit of despair roll over him.

    Watching Zhongli’s eyes change into something unlike himself sent a shiver down his spine with dread.

    The second time, Childe is thrown back in time, and only wants his loved ones to survive this disaster.

    Summary

    “When the Cryo Archon bestowed a new name upon you, what did you think of it?” Zhongli says, leaning back on his chair.

    He sees the man in question staring to tense. There’s a defensive gaze, he looks warily, eyes squinting, as if he’s contemplating his answer.

    “It is considered a blessing,” Childe says, “receiving a new identity potentially means your presence is considered by Her Majesty.”

     

    -

    Or, in which Childe doesn’t think he is Ajax, and Zhongli (forcefully) reminds him.

    Summary

    A cat, a flask of poison, and a radioactive source are placed in a sealed box. If an internal monitor (e.g. Geiger counter) detects radioactivity (i.e. a single atom decaying), the flask is shattered, releasing the poison, which kills the cat. The Copenhagen interpretation of quantum mechanics implies that after a while, the cat is simultaneously alive and dead. Yet, when one looks in the box, one sees the cat either alive or dead, not both alive and dead.

    This poses the question of when exactly quantum superposition ends and reality resolves into one possibility or the other.
    ___________________________________________

    Ajax is a happy-go-lucky high schooler who likes the judo club, playing pranks on his friends, and walking his siblings to school. Childe is a member of a gang called the Fatui, who tucks a Glock in his jeans, sells heroin to people in back alleys, and cackles in delight when beating people bloody.

    And both are in love with Zhongli.

    Summary

    “—I’ll do anything, Zhongli!” Childe cries. “So please, if you have ever loved me, give me the power to fix this!”

    He pulls Zhongli onto his lap, back flushed against his chest. When he buries his tear-streaked face into the curve of Zhongli’s shoulder, he still smells like glaze lilies and incense. So incongruent with the acrid stench of the battlefield.

    “...Ajax…”

    Childe pulls back to see the last vestiges of gold swirl in the Archon’s exhausted eyes.

    “Go with my blessings.”


    When Liyue faces an inevitable catastrophe, Childe finds himself back in the past to retrieve the Gnosis that Zhongli has lost. Perhaps if he returns to the present with it, both Liyue and its Archon can be saved.

    Summary

    “I was a mortal, once. After all this time, I still cannot fathom why I ascended to godhood and achieved immortality when I had died by descending to the bottom of a frozen lake.”

    He ceased to be human, far in the past.

    He accepts it with a heavy heart. It is a burden he resigns himself to shoulder until the end of time arrives.

    As he remains incognito, he bears witness to the history he desires not to be a part of. Nevertheless, he fights to survive, to outlive the slain gods that perish in the gruelling bloodshed.

    Then, he dutifully stirs havoc in the name of the Archon he is forced to serve.

    Although his heart is hardened by the trials and tribulations he has endured, he finds himself not completely desensitised by the ordeals he has faced over his everlasting lifetime.

    Alternatively:

    A divinised Tartaglia still seeks the thrill of battle, even if he, deep down, desires to rest. He finds solace in a certain Geo Archon.

    Summary

    In a modern Teyvat, battles are won and lost using technology, creativity, and clandestine shenanigans. One of Sneznhaya's best spy circles is Morepesok, a lineage of brilliant specialists who start training the next generation early and make new family members out of anyone who doesn't run away fast enough.

    (Zhongli really didn't try to. If anything, he ran right into their arms.)

    Summary

    A circus is supposed to be a mindless thing.

    You walk in, watch the performance, accept the entertainment, and forget about it the next day. A night of dramatical acts and feats, the constant rush of adrenaline- it's enough to leave one hazy in the morning, the entire thing nothing but a blur of the past, yet it leaves you satisfied enough to carry on with your life. You never visit the same one twice, though, even if you wanted to; They're always gone the next day, the fairgrounds nothing but a barren parking lot or an empty field within the next twelve hours.

    So, what happens when one stays for a week, and you just can't get enough of the trapeze act?

    Summary

    It’s been two months since the storm, and Childe hasn’t seen Zhongli not even once, not since that fateful meeting with the Signora where the truth is finally unveiled.

    And what a fun little kick to the gut that is, the realization that not only had he been played by all sides, but he's also being tossed aside like trash now that his use had run its course.

    It’s not that Childe doesn’t get it. He’s a Harbinger. He knows first-hand what it means to do his duty, to put the mission first and his personal feelings far, far away, preferably locked up in a box, where it wouldn’t interfere with his job. He knows what it’s like working with vipers, to scheme and plot and lie in wait for the opportune moment to stab his opponent in the back.

    But this time, this time Childe can’t help but feel a little (a lot) gutted.

    Stupid. He’s gotten himself stupidly attached.

    --
    A story about Childe trying to move on after the events of 1.1 Update, but some of his actions have consequences, and those consequences have followed him back to Snezhnaya.

    Summary

    Childe had always assumed that he would die young. He had accepted that a long time ago, ever since he accepted the mantle of a Fatui Harbinger. However, he always thought that he would die in a glorious fight, his body broken but spirit relishing the strong opponent that had bested him. He was okay with that type of death.

    Unfortunately, it seemed like Fate had decided to add one last insult to injury, because, here Childe was, dying because he had fallen in love with the ex-Geo Archon. The same Archon who seemed to have discarded him like an old toy ever since the Osial Incident.
    ---
    In which divine beings are cruel and a cursed Childe starts preparing for his inevitable death because no Archon could ever love a mortal.

    ...Right?

    Summary

    When Ajax was fourteen, he fell to the abyss. By the time he returned three days later, he was no longer the same young man that disappeared. Everyone agreed that the trip had changed him. No one realized that Ajax no longer existed, replaced by an entity born of the abyss.
