  1. Summary

    There are few songbirds in Qinghe, and even less in the winter as they fly to warmer southern lands. But there is one songbird in the Unclean Realm that continued to sing, even in the darkest and coldest nights of winter. Some nights, his song — clear notes of the xiao — carried by the night breeze could be faintly overheard by the residents in the region. A beautiful, ephemeral melody that calmed the heart. Most nights were silent, the delicate notes only heard by his possessive owner.

    Summary

    "You may take me and break me-- I would beg for you." There was another press, another moan. Eyelashes of snow fluttered ever so gently, in the silent space between them.

     

    "But I have your name."

     

    That should have made him afraid. The words of a spirit, marking him as owned and known, freezing him where he lay bare and hard. The marrow in his mortal bones could not stop this frost, just as he could not stop the shifting body below him. Lan Xichen had him helpless, now.

     

    But Nie Mingjue did not care.

    Summary

    The whiskey burns his throat like gasoline, the hairs on the back of his neck standing up. His eyes start to water as Lan Xichen gasps for breath, coughing desperately. Nie Mingjue squints through his pain as his boyfriend heaves as if one of his lungs has collapsed.

    “Horrible,” Lan Xichen gasps like a personal affront. It shocks a laugh out of Nie Mingjue.

    “It’s likely one of the whiskeys meant for sipping, not for chugging.”

    Awful,” Lan Xichen counters with disdain, already pouring another shot for each of them.

     

    --------------

    Or, the one where Lan Xichen gets incredibly drunk and tells Nie Mingjue all about his amazing boyfriend—who is, coincidentally, Nie Mingjue.

    Summary

    “You asked for a demonstration,” Feng Xin said, trailing firm fingers over the lines of his back, painting characters with warm thumbs and fingernails.

    It was the perfect pressure to go with the perfect touch. It soothed something in him he didn’t know was upset, and he relaxed against the bed with a quiet breath.

    Mu Qing hated how pliant that touch made him.

    “If you said what you mean, for once, I’ll give you one.”
