  3. Summary

    (The Bad Decisions Series Backstory Fics series contains the stories that set up the universe this series exists in, but you should be able to get through Bad Decisions without ever actually reading them.)

    There's plenty of times in life where a decision has to be made, big or small; and, unfortunately, life means that you get to be around to see exactly what your decisions cause.

    Throw in marriages, children (adopted and otherwise), conspiracy theorists, politics, magic, aliens, and about 1,500 years- and the consequences can really pile up.

    Summary

    “Nie Huaisang?” he demands, stumbling down the dirt path towards him. “What- are you the one who took down my wards?!”

    He looks—awful. His eyes are sunken, his cheeks sallow. The robes he is wearing are nothing like the luxurious fabric he used to wear when he was still Yunmeng Jiang’s first disciple. Instead they are thread beard and worn, from a coarse fabric that looks irritating to the skin. There is a shakiness to his gait that Nie Huaisang has never seen from his friend, who always walked with such a presence as if to defy a world that has sentenced him to death.

    “Of course it was me!” he scolds. “You really should take better care and hide your talismans.”

    Wei Wuxian, rudely enough, ignores his (useful!) advice and instead looks at him like he’s mad. “What are you doing here?”

    “Betraying the gentry and siding with evil, duh,” Huaisang rolls his eyes. “Now, will you let me in? I’m hungry.”

    Summary

    Lonely, tired, and stuck in Detroit for two months due to competitions, Viktor Nikiforov decides he's staying. He's not sure what he expects to find, but it's certainly not love, and he certainly doesn't expect it to come in the form of the World's Cutest Barista.

    But when the pressure of his career threatens to strain his burgeoning relationship, and long-held secrets come into the light, he finds his love tested in ways he'd never anticipated, with life-changing results.

     

    Edited June 12, 2020, to add new scenes and clean a few things up. Plot, overall, is unchanged. I've saved all downloadable files of the old version if anyone wants them. Feel free to let me know.

    Summary

    Without the Katsuki line to protect and maintain the laws of magic, Great Mages have become so few and far between that many believe the age of magic is coming to an end. However, when he comes across a young man weaving tales with figures of fire, Viktor begins to wonder if magic is truly dead, or if it lives on in the body of the storyteller with warm brown eyes.
