    Summary

    It’s been two months since the storm, and Childe hasn’t seen Zhongli not even once, not since that fateful meeting with the Signora where the truth is finally unveiled.

    And what a fun little kick to the gut that is, the realization that not only had he been played by all sides, but he's also being tossed aside like trash now that his use had run its course.

    It’s not that Childe doesn’t get it. He’s a Harbinger. He knows first-hand what it means to do his duty, to put the mission first and his personal feelings far, far away, preferably locked up in a box, where it wouldn’t interfere with his job. He knows what it’s like working with vipers, to scheme and plot and lie in wait for the opportune moment to stab his opponent in the back.

    But this time, this time Childe can’t help but feel a little (a lot) gutted.

    Stupid. He’s gotten himself stupidly attached.

    --
    A story about Childe trying to move on after the events of 1.1 Update, but some of his actions have consequences, and those consequences have followed him back to Snezhnaya.

    NOTE: THIS FIC WAS DRAFTED BEFORE 1.1 UPDATE CAME OUT. MIND THE CANON-DIVERGENT TAG FOR THIS REASON.

    Summary

    Xiao is the name he was given upon his new contract with the great dragon Rex Lapis, but before that, he was Alatus, a weak adeptus twisted to the whim of the God of Dreams. The blood on his hands and karmic debt on his shoulders corrupt his Heart and drive him toward death, until he happens across an otherworldly light stumbling through a lonely valley.

    Aether has visited and fled more worlds than he can count, careful never to get attached, but this is the first time he's truly been trapped on any one of them, stripped of his power and split from his sister. He is certain he will starve and fade, chained by his immortality to a life of unending agony, unable to even put himself to rest— until he meets a lost and achingly gentle adeptus who brings him new hope.

    It will be a long time before either of them learn how to receive the love they are given.

    Summary

    Yuuji lets out a little hum. One of his feet silently taps the air.

    Suddenly, it clicks. Why that guy, his not-brother, had hired him. Why even Megumi finds himself warming up to him. He doesn’t want anything out of anyone—except for a bit of company.

    Lying next to the boy with pink hair, the mountains are just mountains, the stars are just stars, and the flowers are just flowers, but they’re simply there, vivid and real in a way Megumi can’t remember them ever being. It’s as if he’s taken a step forward and finds himself, for the first time in a long time, sitting in his own skin. Skin that’s warm and inviting and that he doesn’t mind being in.

    Or, in which Megumi moves back home after college, drained, disillusioned, and depressed, to find a new presence taking up space—one that belongs to a boy who teaches him to see color again, to breathe easy again, to be himself again, all without even trying to. Yet, it'll take more than the hand of another to pull Megumi out of the hole he's fallen into.
