    Summary

    You would think that Boya would be the one having nightmares about sand and death. Yet here Qingming is, waking up in the middle of the night, sand in his throat and Boya so far away.

    Summary

    He staggers back, blackness rapidly encroaching on his vision as his legs buckle and collapse beneath him, sword clattering loudly against stone as it slips from boneless fingers. He doesn’t feel the impact when he hits the ground, doesn’t hear the sound his body must make when it crumples to the stone. He only hears a deep, resounding pulse. Like a heartbeat. Like a gong.

    Boya fades.

    Someone calls.

    His world explodes in vermilion light.
     

    Alternatively: Qing Ming is an idiot with the worst timing ever, Boya goes fishing, gets wings again, has an existential crisis and gets laid. In that order.

    Summary

    ‘Qingming’ Boya coaxes, whispering in the dark as if sharing a secret, and Qingming’s heart is shaking so bad he can hear it rattling inside his chest, slamming itself desperately against brittle bones as it attempts to break out and throw itself at Boya’s feet.
    Nobody has said his name the way Boya does, and nobody else, he thinks, ever will. ‘Qingming, would you look at me?'

     

    --
    or in which maybe, somehow, there is still a bit of spiritual connection left between Qingming and Boya, and maybe, somehow, that helps when they miss each other too much to bear

    Summary

    Is it him that courts such misfortune, Qingming wonders, neither for the first nor the last time in his long baned life, or is he the misfortune courted?

    Summary

    If Qing Ming had the presence of mind to care, he might be embarrassed because his spirit servants can probably hear him at this point.

    Alternatively: That's not how you use a vanity, boys.
