    Summary

    A large eagle casts a long shadow upon the earth.
    « A bird of Manwë », Tyelkormo says, squinting at the sky, concern painted on his face.
    It curves west, then glides downwards.

    Summary

    Jin Guangyao wished for little more than to be at his small apartment with his cat where he could soak his feet and pretend he didn't have four am rehearsals the next morning. Instead, he found himself in a stifling hot studio running through lift combinations until his legs were ready to collapse beneath him.

    Summary

    It would be ridiculous to call them friends. Like claiming two tigers were companions only because their stripes look similar at a glance. Ghost Kings don’t have friends.

    “You’re going to choke to death if you eat like that,” Hua Cheng remarks.

    He mostly sounds bored but also a little like he’s curious to see what will happen. He Xuan scowls at him and sops up gravy with the last of his carp, a futile little shovel chasing the rain.

    “Weren’t you a scholar?” Hua Cheng asks. “I thought they fed you better.”

    “Than what?” He Xuan grumbles.

    He doesn’t bother pointing out that he never passed the national exam to be appointed to any worthy position. He’s fairly sure Hua Cheng already knows about that, the same way he knows everything.

    “Soldiers,” Hua Cheng offers with a shrug. “Street rats. Feral dogs?”

    He makes a gesture with his left hand that encompasses all of He Xuan and earns himself another glare in response.

    Summary

    Every year, a ghost king roams the night in search of lost souls and leaves only destruction in his wake. Every year, Hua Cheng's temples are burning.

    Or: a story in which Xie Lian is a Devastation, Hua Cheng is a Heaven Official, and nothing is what it seems.
