    Summary

    “What’s wrong?” Keqing can’t see anything worthy of shock. The room is small, and fairly empty. Two beds sit on either end, with a set of drawers and a round table on a worn bamboo mat occupying the floor space between them.

    Ganyu’s mouth opens but it’s a few seconds before she answers. “I—so there’s just one room for us to share?”

     -

    In the aftermath of Rex Lapis's departure, Keqing rushes to strengthen Liyue's infrastructure and trade routes. Her first project takes her on a survey trip to a site north of Qingce Village. Despite Keqing's protests and doubts, Ganyu comes along to help in lieu of her usual entourage of assistants. The two of them couldn't be more different, but a week together has its way of unearthing secrets and words they never thought they would say to anyone, let alone to each other.

    Summary

    Yanfei let her words settle. When she spoke again, it sounded insecure, almost. “Do you like me enough to love me?”

    “I like you enough to love you,” Hu Tao concurred. “Enough to spend the rest of my life with you.” Because it was a simple fact. The truth. One that she knew that the best legal advisor in Liyue— no, the entirety of Teyvat— would appreciate.

    When Yanfei lifted her head to meet her eyes, there was a certain gleam to them. Somehow, Hu Tao knew Yanfei had gotten her answer.

    Or, Hu Tao doesn't want Yanfei to regret the love they have now, but Yanfei had been thinking the opposite.

    Summary

    Beidou’s eyebrows jumped up. “So your little smooch wasn’t just because you could?” she said, half-jokingly, because she knew that Ningguang could always do so if she ever entertained herself with it. Honestly, she could do a lot of things— mora, in this era, could buy off anything, and the Tianquan of the Liyue Qixing could do just that.

    “I want you to pretend to be my fiancée.”

    Direct and straight to the point. Ningguang always knew how not to disappoint.

     

    Or, it was better to pretend than be what Beidou wished they were.

    Summary

    “I’m not worried,” Hu Tao told her simply.

    Yanfei blinked. “You— you aren’t?” She didn't know why she was so surprised. Hu Tao didn’t look bothered by anything she was saying in the slightest. If she were in Hu Tao’s shoes, she would’ve been freaking out and tossing and turning at night. 

    “Why would I be?” Hu Tao asked her. She flashed Yanfei a smile. “I have a pretty lady for a lawyer who’s probably going to charm everyone in the courtroom before she even says anything.”

    Or, Yanfei’s client was almost charming enough to make her turn a blind eye. Almost.

    Summary

    Kujou Sara thought she was immovable. She liked to think she was made of stone, but now, she knew this was far from the truth. Stone did not falter, but Sara collapsed to her knees, seized by an abrupt coughing fit.

    At last, whatever had been caught in her throat freed itself. With a trembling hand, she lifted it from the grass, examining it.

    It was the single petal of a forget-me-not, the same blossom that her shogun typically wore in her hair.

    --

    or: sara contracts a rare disease and is faced with a choice: die by the shogun's side, or live forever separated from her
