    Summary

    Xiao and Venti may just be the entertainment industry’s worst kept secret, with their sneaking around and obvious shared hickeys and suspiciously aligned free time, but at least they were keeping some semblance of privacy. Well, they had been, but on the night of the New Years’ Eve Black and White Ball Venti seemed determined to push all of Xiao’s buttons for the entire industry to notice.

    Not that Xiao minded much. If Venti was that determined to be ruined mid holiday party, who was Xiao to deny him?

    Summary

    There are two gods in Xiao’s heart. One is Rex Lapis and his overwhelming might during the Archon War, his time-honed tranquility and vast knowledge the millennia afterwards, the contract they made that bound them on the same path — the path for Liyue. A light, a leader, a fellow adeptus.

    The other, accompanied by the melody of a flute that crossed mountains and rivers to soothe Xiao’s heart, is Barbatos.

    Summary

    "Your landlord's okay with this?" Venti gestures to the pets.

    "Yours isn't?"

    Venti rubs their neck sheepishly. "Well…"

    Xiao deadpans. "You're joking."

    Or: A Modern AU fic in which Xiao and Venti take care of a dog together (and perhaps find love along the way).

    Summary

    “What it means,” Hu Tao hummed, “is that if you don’t make a move soon, some other guy — or girl! — is going to pluck him up right in front of your eyes.”

    Oh. Xiao’s heart dropped down to his stomach.

    She was right. The first time he’d asked Venti how he was so knowledgeable in matters of the heart, the boy had not-so-subtly hinted at having a significant amount of experience in said matters. He didn’t even want to think about the times he’d heard about someone fancying his best friend, let alone the multiple instances where someone had asked Venti out right in front of him.

    He had to do something. And fast.

    Or, five times Xiao watches his school’s resident Cupid help others find love, and one time he manages to catch Cupid himself.
