    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.

    The author has done incredible research on Russian culture and elemental reactions and resistance ingame which makes the story built solidly on canon facts. All in all it sticks pretty close to canon too (I personally highly value this) and Childe as well as Zhongli are perfectly in character. Very good writing: misunderstandings don’t get resolved immediately, more show then tell, empathising with the characters. I genuinely felt myself blushing at some scenes which is a great sign of an author being able to convey feelings well. We have a thick plot, acts and arcs, suspense, and all of that makes a good story. I‘m impressed by this writing.

    This is the first fic I‘m reading for Zhongli/Childe, so I could get an idea about why people ship them (in other words, what clues we got in canon, what their chemistry is like etc.) and it made me understand it better.

    I haven’t finished this fic yet (2 chapters to go) but I wanted to write down my thoughts in case I forget later.

    Summary

    No one of the Guhua bloodline has ever made it past the age of 30, due to a 200 year old curse. Xingqiu, now the head of the Feiyun Commerce Guild, is to marry and find a love that will be powerful enough to break the curse.

    But at 22, all that Xingqiu wants is a normal life and adventure. Who better to help him get his clan off his back than his best friend, Chongyun?

    Wow. Okay. Haven’t commented yet, but: really well written, I felt myself blushing at the first almost-kiss… Admittedly I liked their dynamic in the first half more. Second half is packed with plot and mystery and action — the change in Xingqiu’s heart felt a little sudden to me, but it wasn’t objectively. I’m just a sucker for SLOW slow burn. It’s a very good story with excellent adaptation of Liyue, detailed lore AND BTW I actually laughed HARD when Zhongli made his appearance.

    This sucked me in like nothing has in a long time.

    Slowburn Takeda/Ukai; the author really knows how to show instead of tell, and you find yourself feeling and suspecting the same way the characters do. It's not completely clear what everyone thinks and feels so it adds mystery and tension I rarely see in fanfiction (more or less unreliable perspective). Other than that it's a fluffy fic with bits of drama and follows canon to the boot. Highly recommended.

    I loved the progression. Very realistic, doubts, distance, a little bit of fear of intimacy. Second chapter gets increasingly explicit. Happy ending, but it still feels, well, real and kind of full of doubts. Idk, Kakashi just seems quite distant and dismissive here, but it's understandable.

    Summary

    To Iruka, it's a place to speak to his parents, and the mysterious ANBU who listens.

    Follows Kakashi from ages 14 to 29, and the many ways Iruka changes his life.

    ANBU-Kakashi finds the thread that keeps him sane in the boy who cries so openly at the memorial stone. He hates himself, he loathes his mistakes, but in the end, he might be ready to forgive himself and become open to love - deserving of love.

    Written so insanely well. Kakashi-centric - depression and dissociation very well conveyed, as any other emotions, and him beeing deep in his head.

    Summary

    Kakashi avoided relationships. He didn't want to put others in danger. So he couldn't understand why there was a face staring back at him, as a sub-entry to his own, in this Bingo Book. Umino Iruka (lover) the caption read. It didn't matter that it wasn't true. The Book was fact, and to Kakashi's enemies, Iruka had just become a weakness they could exploit.

    I can't believe I haven't bookmarked this piece. It's one of the best for sure. I love Iruka's chakralocating ability in this one. I'll update the details after rereading.

    A lot of action and plot intertwined with slowburn KakaIru. Badass Iruka with a chakralocation ability, misunderstandings.

    Summary

    Tsunade walked around the desk and sat directly next to Iruka, turning both of their chairs with a casually powerful grasp. In the end they were facing each other, not the desk. He tried and failed to hold her gaze. She reached out and tipped his chin up, forcing him to look at her again. Another hit landed. This time it came from Iruka's left. It felt like it must have shattered bone, ribs grinding against each other in his chest, and Iruka bit his tongue almost until it bled to keep from crying out.

    “Tell me, Iruka-sensei,” Tsunade said. “How long, exactly, have you been feeling Hatake Kakashi’s emotions?"

    Summary

    The life of a ninja is a dangerous one, doubly so if you belong to one of the lesser, smaller villages. When Waterfall is overrun by Rock, young Chūnin Umino Iruka is tasked to flee to Fire Country with his village's two most precious assets; their young prince, Shibuki, and the jinchūriki of the Shichibi, Fū. He's hardly surprised when Fire allows them to citizenship - the draw of a second jinchūriki is a strong incentive. Building a life in a new country is hard, but Iruka is determined to full fill his last mission as a Waterfall-nin; provide a happy, healthy home for his charges. Everything is going well - until he meets Uzumaki Naruto.

    Suddenly, Iruka is a single father of three at sixteen, living with what has to be the strangest, rudest (and attractive) Alphas he's ever met; Hatake Kakashi.
