    Summary

    There is a boy with a red ribbon in his hair, with fire and valour in his heart. At the end of the story, he dies (repeat ad infinitum).

    There is a boy with(out) a blue ribbon. He is made of broken glass; bleeding edges and distorted reflections. He holds love in his chest, he holds love like a bullet lodged in his chest. The ink on his contract is dry– but his fingers drip black; stained from rewriting the fates of others. At the end of the world he stands in the water and says– my soul, my body, my mind, but not my heart.

    There is a valorous boy in a red ribbon. He is a puppet on a string. He is the gear that turns the fates of others. If he makes a contract he’ll end the world. If he makes no contract the world will end. He stares across the water at a love he has no memory of. He stares up at the shattered sky. He stares into himself and says, swallow down your hesitation– what will you wish for?

    (You can only repeat a story so many times)

    Summary

    Tonight, Tang Fan—or Feifei, anyway—can be exactly what Jin San wants, and Jin San can be what Tang Fan wants, and that’s more than half the fun of it. (Alternatively: Jin San gives Tang Fan his first prostate orgasm.)

    Summary

    He doesn’t quite remember the details of his original life anymore. But now, he does his best to conjure up what memories he can and carve a similarly bloody path to Yi City.

    When Xiao Xingchen arrives to bring him to justice, Xue Yang can’t help but stare. Time and death have chipped away at his memories, leaving only fleeting impressions. A smile. A few words, softly murmured. The motion of long, deft fingers patching a threadbare blanket. The man he remembers was graceful and ethereal, otherworldly but kind. The man standing before him, this man made of flesh and bone and blood and breath -- he is the sum of all these things and more.

    “Daozhang,” Xue Yang whispers, lowering his trembling blade.

    Song Lan runs him through with Fuxue on the spot.

    ----

    Xue Yang lives and dies and lives again.

    Across thousands of lifetimes, only one thing remains constant: he wants.

    Summary

    the Yi City s/m performance art AU that really, no one asked for.

    The night Xue Yang meets Xiao Xingchen is the night Xingchen wires Song Lan’s hands down onstage. Barbed metal; hovering just above his skin. A series of compass points skittering sharp across the thin flesh of his wrist, its hefty jut of bone.

    Xue Yang’s mouth waters to see the steel, glinting sunny in the smear of the projector’s beam.
