    Summary

    No one has touched Xie Lian for years, and then Hua Cheng does so - laying a hand on his arm to get his attention - and the emptiness in Xie Lian’s chest roars to life. It was impossible then, not to go to Hua Cheng’s room at night, and ask him to hold him.

    Summary

    Xie Lian’s string was red. It was supposed to indicate that his person was all of it wrapped up in one—that there was one person in the world who would be his friend, his family, all of it. However, the older Xie Lian got, the more he began to think that maybe red just meant he had nobody at all.

    _____

    In a world where platonic, familial, and romantic soulmates are indicated by yellow, blue, and white strings, Xie Lian's is red.

    Summary

    He strokes Hua Cheng’s forearm, where Xie Lian’s own name is etched onto the skin in indecipherable characters. Then, “And you were aware I was there. Can you feel what that silk does?”

    There’s a slight pause behind him, and when the replies comes it carries the first traces of hesitation in it. “It’s complex, and a difficult sensation to describe.”

    Xie Lian braces himself, and then lets out the next question in a single breath.

    “Could you feel me wrapped up in it, today?”

    ____

     

    When Xie Lian gets caught again by the cocoon in Mount Tonglu, he quickly realizes that being tangled in Hua Cheng’s power is the only place he wants to be.

    Summary

    Imagine a long-lost temple of a powerful god and a madness-addled ghost who had taken it as her lair, hoping beyond hope for reciprocation of love that would never come. Imagine a god; a humble, old, powerless god who entered the temple to solve a riddle with nothing but his wit and strength of his own hands. Imagine a girl, dying a death as useless as her entire life had been, and a lost ghost so stuck in his past that it bled from his face, never to stop.

    It should have gone like that. But it didn’t.

    Instead, this iteration went like this:

    Xie Lian walked the steps of the temple with the most precious soul by his side, one he had lost centuries ago.

    ***
    A story in which Xie Lian solves the case of missing brides with Wu Ming found anew after centuries, then decides to go against everyone's expectations and keeps him by his side because the thought of losing him again is worse than losing face.

    Summary

    When he met San Lang, he knew he wasn't ordinary from the beginning. It wasn't like he made any particular effort to hide it, and even seemed to be actively flaunting his strangeness for some reason. Xie Lian wasn't entirely sure why. Maybe to show off, maybe trying to gauge his reaction, or maybe he was just confident with himself. Either way, he made pleasant company.

    Xie Lian knew it wouldn't last.

    That was fine. He could indulge a little longer, plus he wanted to see where this was going. He was obviously here for a reason after all, so he might as well see what it is.

    (And if he wanted to pretend he was a little less alone then that was no one's business but his own.)

    Hualian's relationship explored through their sleeping arrangements.
