    Summary

    Crumpled at the base of Koi Tower’s long stairs for the second time, Jin Guangyao presses his face into the stone, takes a deep breath despite re-broken ribs, and arranges his features as carefully as he knows how. Then he stands, moving carefully around the pain, and bows deep, arms held straight and true. The walk back up the steps to his father's side is painful enough to wipe the smile from his face; it is not painful enough to prevent him re-taking his place as seneschal, bowing again at the top of the steps. As he straightens, he prioritizes his plans for his father’s demise over all else.

    Summary

    It might be fun, Xue Yang considers, to get pure, gentle Xiao Xingchen to give him what he wants. Sure, one could do any number of things to him, but wasn’t there greater poetic justice in making him do it? And want to do it?

    Or, Xue Yang bites off more than he can chew.

    Summary

    Standing outside the hot dog store, the sun high in the sky and making him burn in the damn suit, Luo Binghe half-heartedly shoves flyers in people’s faces, gritting his teeth at every dismissive wave.

    Until one man takes a flyer and actually skims it, right in front of him.

    Luo Binghe watches him, struck by the way his hair falls across his face, the way his eyes, a warm honey-brown, rove down the flyer behind a pair of frameless glasses. The way the red of his necktie pops against a black suit jacket that fits perfectly to the width of his shoulders, the line of his slim waist.

    Beautiful, Luo Binghe thinks.

    He’s always liked the scholarly sort. Ironic as that may be, given his history.

    The man looks up, their eyes meeting, and Luo Binghe’s pulse leaps.

    “For hot dogs, these prices are a rip-off,” the man says.


    In which Luo Binghe, working in a hot dog suit, falls for defense attorney Shen Yuan, and he wants nothing more than to prove his worth to him. (Mentions of Moshang and Liu Mingyan/Sha Hualing + with gorgeous art included)
