  1. Summary

    If Caleb had a copper for every time a member of the Mighty Nein got turned into cats, he'd have two copper, which isn't a lot of money but it's really weird that it happened twice.

  3. Summary

    Wei Wuxian attempts to Set Right What Once Went Wrong by sending his consciousness back in time; in true Wei Wuxian fashion his inventions work, but with some very unintended consequences.

    1. *yakety sax arrangement for guqin and xiao* - the casting of the spell itself, played for laughs. Wei Wuxian POV, some XuanLi, more WangXian. Complete.
    2. second verse, same as the first - Less cracky and more serious, explores the fallout of the characters being displaced in time and a number of dead people being alive again. Varying POV, multiple ships. Complete.
    3. coda: an independent passage, at the end of a composition, to bring it to a satisfactory close - checking back in with the original Wei Wuxian, wondering what exactly went wrong with his beautiful spell. Complete.

  4. Summary

    The Untamed... IN SPACE!

    A retelling of the xianxia story The Untamed in a futuristic setting where spells and golden cores are replaced with cyberware and computer programming, sects become space stations, swordsmen become fighter pilots, resentful energy becomes killer nanobots, and love and sacrifice and heartbreak... well, they stay just the same.

  5. Summary

    Let! Caleb!! Kiss!!!

    A collection of short stories I'm doing that try to focus more on cute character dynamics and relationships rather than plot or adventure. Each one will feature a different love interest for Caleb, themes chosen from a list of prompts based on D&D spells.

    Summary

    Escape or death.

    The first explosion rocks the complex scant minutes after he leaves the room, Xue Yang's boredom finally winning out over Jin Guangyao's insistence at their attendance. Wei Wuxian has only the breath of a moment to wish fleetingly that he had set the timer a bit longer. The first charge is set as far from the conference and attendees as possible, to be the most confusing. A second goes off in the opposite direction, then a third, further south.

    Everything erupts into movement, the guards scrambling at the explosions, the guests starting to emerge from the hall in a clump of confused, controlled panic as the charges continue to detonate. It’s now or never.

    Escape or death.

    He flees.

    Taken at the end of the Sunshot War and forced into servitude to the Jin, Wei Wuxian makes a desperate escape attempt during a Federation conference. Though the universe (and his family) think he's dead - that he has been dead for 13 years - he has no choice but to try to escape. To find his freedom, to stop the Jin, and maybe to prevent another war.

    Summary

    Wei Ying can’t find his words. “What would I do in Gusu?”
    The man’s mouth quirks in what Wei Ying cannot interpret as anything but a tiny, smug smirk. “Learn.”

    Wei Ying has made a fine life for himself. He’s got his jiejies and his talismans; he doesn’t need anyone’s charity. But spending a whole year in Gusu? That’s hard to turn down.

    Summary

    There was no way the old contract Jiang Cheng found arranging a marriage between the direct disciples of the Nie and Jiang sects was, as Jiang Cheng insisted, the way to solve the problem of the Yiling Patriarch - if only because there was no way the Nie sect would agree to it.

    Except - they did. And now they're coming to discuss terms.

    With Lan Wangji as the official chaperone.

    Summary

    What led Hob Gadling — at the time known as Robert Stranger, because he’d been in a permanent state of pettiness from 1889 to about 1904 and now he was stuck with it — to the dank, cold, and dark basement of the Burgess house on March of 1957 was not so much coincidence or fate as it was curiosity.

    Yeah. Cats isn’t the only thing it kills.

     

    Alright, wait. Back up. Let’s start from the beginning.

    It was 1957 and Hob Gadling was, by no action or choice of his own, sort of — it’s a bit embarrassing — a criminal master.

    Not mastermind! He hadn’t planned any of it. Honestly.

    Summary

    “It’s a kid?” Wei Wuxian says to Wen Qing. “What’s a kid doing dabbling with the ghostly path? Talking to my ghosts?” He sounds indignant.

    “Perhaps you should ask him,” Wen Qing says dryly.

    “Kid, why are you using demonic cultivation?” Wei Wuxian asks.

    “It works better when you want to work with spirits, rather than fight them,” Mo Xuanyu says. “And I’m not using demonic cultivation, I merely greeted your spirit and told him I was a friend and needed to talk to you. Well, something to that effect. Intention matters more than intonation with this stuff.”

    “Who taught you that?” Wei Wuxian asks, his voice shifting from indignation to intrigue.

    “You did,” Mo Xuanyu says. “Or well, your notes did, hmmm… five or six years from now.”

    Wei Wuxian wags a scolding finger at him and says, “You should be developing your golden core, not dabbling around with things you don’t under—Did you say five years from now? As in, in the future?”

    OR: What if instead of Sacrifice Summon, Mo Xuanyu discovered Wei Wuxian’s flawed time travel talisman?

    A Mo Xuanyu-centric found family time travel looping epic.
