    Summary

    Zhongli raised his arms to rest on the harbinger's back, but the younger man's body flinched at the touch, prompting him to remove them again. Childe’s fists clenched just beyond his view.

    "Does...being touched upset you?" Zhongli finally asked.

    "I...don't know." Childe muttered into the consultant's shoulder. "Maybe I'm just not used to it."

    "But touching others is fine?"

    "...I don't know."

    ----------

    Childe is subconsciously touch-starved, but consciously touch-averse due to years of rejection from his own family and keeping himself closed off from intimacy. Zhongli wishes to help him relieve that need.

    (An innocent sensory touching story.)

    Summary

    Such a tender heart, beneath it all. Morax wonders at it – that a creature so fundamentally gentle could survive something so fundamentally cruel.

    “In the fables of another world,” Morax murmurs, “the name Xiao is that of a spirit who encountered great hardship. He endured much suffering, as you have.” His thumb brushes beneath Alatus’s eye, catching the tear before it can fall. “Use this name from now on.”

    A story about love, devotion, and vulnerability, told in six parts. Or, five lessons Zhongli learns from Xiao during their thousands of years at each other's sides, and one lesson Xiao learns from him.

    Summary

    Across from him, Kazuma inhaled audibly, as if steeling himself from something important, “Ryunosuke, I think - no, I would prefer - if you would stop referring to me as your best friend.”

    Ryunosuke blinked, his own breath caught in his throat for a moment. “Pardon?”
