    Summary

    Gimli, freshly-wakened, was lying with his head propped on one hand, his blanket at his waist. And he said, his voice morning-hoarse, "If my memory doesn't fail me, we'll be reaching the River Limlight soon. I'd dearly love a wash."

    Legolas's heart seized and tightened. The Limlight was in the very north of the forest, and once across it, they would emerge from their easy wandering, cracking out of the chrysalis to the pain of the open air. No more Fangorn, no more careless peace, no more Gimli at dawn stretching his muscles limber and grumbling about the wear of a bootsole.

    And all the future losses lined themselves up.

    Summary


    The household is quiet after Crepus’s death, and the funeral is just as dreary.

    Mourning is very much a human affair, to grieve for someone gone, an idea Kaeya thinks he used to practice as a human—a few centuries ago that is.

    Nonetheless, he wears the emotion of sorrow as they all do, careful not to break his character as the supportive second child. Issues commands to the servants when their new master refuses to leave his room, writes back to nobles that send their condolences, ponders to himself when would be a good time to have the confirmation ceremony; people will need to see who the new head of house is, after all.

    But the silence has to break, he knows, Kaeya is only waiting for when.

    Crepus summons a demon, bound to protect Diluc for life in return for his old soul.

    Kaeya takes up the offer only because he's bored.

    Summary

    An incredulous laugh slips free of Kaeya’s throat. Is this supposed to be roleplay?

    “It’s not funny,” snaps Diluc, shifting in his polished heels. “I’m being serious. Trying to do something nice.”

    Kaeya laughs again, pure wonder this time. “You wanted to be good for me? A sweet little wife?”

    Summary

    "Fucking Margo, Margo and her “have fun boys!”. Now he was nervous. It wasn’t even—they were looking for a book. Yes, Eliot had dressed in one of his favorite outfits, but that was irrelevant. There was never a time to not wear an ensemble of choice, life was far too short. You never knew who you were going to find out in the world, particularly New York.

    (And if Quentin happened to take him in a little startled, deer-caught-in-brief-but-intense-headlights look that spread warmth all over Eliot’s body... well, bonus.)”

    1x03, but Eliot and Quentin have a mini-date after the blow-up with Julia, and Kady doesn't interrupt. (Technically not a Non-Beast!AU but that doesn't come up.)

    Summary

    "Do you understand its meaning, Childe?" He finally asks. There's a hard glint in his eyes, like he's trying to steel himself for his answer.

    "Yeah." Loyalty and devotion, right? Between business partners? "I do. It's traditional, isn't it?"

    Zhongli's eyes glow a warm amber in the near darkness, reflecting the soft shine of the lanterns. He studies his face with a strange intensity, as though Childe were a piece of high quality Nocticulous Jade being sold for suspiciously small sum and he's trying to find the blemishes that would explain the price. The weight of his gaze should be uncomfortable, boring into him like he can see into the very depths of his abyss-tainted soul, but Childe finds himself preening under the attention instead.

     

    Childe accidentally proposes to Zhongli. Zhongli accepts.
