    My Liyue-centric fics!

    If they are related, I'll specify it. But otherwise they can be treated as standalone pieces.

    Summary

    empyrean | ˌɛmpʌɪˈriːən, ˌɛmpɪˈriːən, ɛmˈpɪrɪən |
    noun (the empyrean)
    the highest part of heaven, thought by the ancients to be the realm of pure fire.

    -
    Ningguang has never held love for anything finite.

    Mora is infinite; as is the prosperity of Liyue Harbour, and she adores both.

    Perhaps this is why she might love Captain Beidou, Queen of the Crux Fleet; because she is the closest thing to infinity personified Ningguang has ever seen. Utterly and frustratingly incomprehensible, but awe-inspiring all the same.

    Beidou thinks Ningguang is pretty, but she’ll settle for admiring her from afar. Look, but don’t touch, lest you wish to be burned.

    Summary

    Yelan has always been accustomed to being alone and though she does enjoy the company of others, there is always the inevitable parting at the end of their gathering, where they would go their own ways and she would return to her humble abode, alone. 

    This is her sanctuary and refuge where she could just relax and unwind and just be alone. 

    It’s simple in stature. Furnished and filled solely for her and her alone. Nobody else.

    As she's recovering from the illness that the dark ooze from the Chasm has inflicted on her, she finds that her refuge for one is changing, so slowly that she doesn't quite notice in the weakness of her illness. But Shenhe stays at her side, carefully nursing her back to health and Yelan thinks that there might be the the chance for something more.

    Shenhe stays, without saying anything.

    So Yelan doesn't say anything either.

    Summary

    “Laopo.” Ningguang sputters, and Beidou grins. “What, do you not like me calling you that, laopo?”

    “We sound old,” Ningguang says. “Only old people say that.”

    “Mm, but I like it,” says Beidou. There’s a teasing smile on her face, and she leans forward, poking Ningguang’s cheek. Ningguang reddens. She’s drunk on the way that Ningguang regards her. Is this what it’s like to be married? she wonders. “Laopo.”

    Or: on Ningguang’s wedding night, Beidou finds her drunk on her apartment doorstep. Like a fool, she proposes to her.

    Summary

    To Beidou, the Jade Chamber is nothing but an ornate prison. The vastness of the halls within serve only as illusions of power and control, while its walls hold Ningguang captive to her duties as one of Liyue’s overseers. Beidou longs to show her what true freedom looks like, even if only for a moment.

    Summary

    Loving someone in secret is hard, loving someone in public is harder. Loving someone at all though, that's the important part.
