    Summary

    “I’m sorry Gege, I’m just a bit surprised. Let me make sure I am understanding this correctly,” he said, taking half a step forward. “You are real and also asleep. I am also real, and not a figment of your imagination. We are both real, and asleep, and dreaming the same dream right now.”

    Xie Lian shrugged. “It looks like it.”

    When Xie Lian gets hit by a curse, he winds up sharing his dreams with a certain ghost king who would very much like to know where he is in real life.

    Summary

    “Xie Lian?” the doctor asks.

    Xie Lian had thought it safe enough to use his name after this many years, five hundred past the death of Xianle, but he questions that belief as her brow furrows.

    “Ah,” he says, uncertain how to proceed but certain that changing it now would only raise her suspicions. “Yes?”

    “Like the shrine?”

    •••

    After a mishap helping a village get rid of a malevolent ghost, Xie Lian stumbles upon a mysterious shrine and its keeper and discovers his most devoted believer in the last place he'd ever think to look.

    He grimaces at the realization that he’s actually done something for Black Water and enjoyed it.

    Or, Hua Cheng is invited to find inspiration beyond that of his beloved.
