    Summary

    Okay, but like, what if Lan Jingyi and Lan Sizhui are playing outside one day? They're kids, but they're older kids- ten or so. Old enough to not need constant adult supervision, and also old enough to know better than to go by the old earthworks the entire village avoids. It's a few li out of town. A sort of tumulus that's said to be haunted, dangerous. Some grannies still talk about the huli jing in the mound.

    But like, they're kids! Jingyi is terrified of potential spirits, but Sizhui is charismatic and very good at convincing him to explore anyway.

    It's not their fault if they accidentally discover and awaken a body that claims to be the infamous Yiling Laozu, right?

    A crossposted twitter fic.

    Summary

    "I'm so tired," Wei Ying complains, tossing his hand down instead of Going Fish for the sixteenth time this game alone. "I can't even remember who's said what and now I'm losing, like, the easiest card game in existence."

    He looks tired, too. The spaces under his eyes are sunken, a bruised purple under skin that looks thin and stretched-out to the touch. Fragile.

    He's looked exhausted for days now, but even when they're curled up on the couch together, Wei Ying's head in Jiang Yanli's lap, humming an unrecognizable tune softly as she strokes his hair, he doesn't sleep.

    Summary

    Shi Qingxuan gets more than he bargained for when he steals a candlestick from a mysterious magic shop's private collection. A haunted apartment may be the least of his concerns, however. The demon he awakened is ancient and hungry, and it seems Shi Qingxuan might be his new obsession.
