    Summary

    With San Lang, Xie Lian thinks he can find again the strength centuries have ripped from him. And maybe this is what he needed all these years – the awareness of another person by his side no matter the circumstances and regardless of the storm the world throws at him. The concept of one person made tangible, and all the more precious because being there just for him. San Lang’s quiet, patient devotion and a freely given fragile heart ground him—and Xie Lian is more than happy that he's no longer adrift.

    ***
    Xie Lian's ascension led to a disaster. Now, in its wake, he and Hua Cheng are preparing to face White-Clothed Calamity and emerge victorious from a fight seemingly impossible to win.

    Summary

    Ascension is a difficult thing to adjust to - even more so when you're a full-time parent of 5-year-old twins spoilt beyond belief.

    Or: a story in which Xie Lian has no time to deal with Heaven's shit, because he'd rather stay at home with his husband and raise their kids in peace.

    Summary

    "The laughing stock of the three realms is married to the Ghost Realm's number one bigshot!"

    Or: a story in which Xie Lian ascends for the third time and freaks the hell out of Heaven by claiming he's married. He would also want to hand in his resignation, thank you very much--if only someone was willing to accept it.

    Summary

    San Lang’s fingers ghost down the nape of his neck, reverent and hesitant, leaving a tingling trail that keeps on burning. In slow, long, purposeful strokes, he writes a story of adoration on the canvas of Xie Lian’s skin.

    His hands slow down when he brushes against the bandages wrapped around Xie Lian’s neck. Xie Lian stiffens involuntarily; then those hands come to rest on his shoulders, grounding and comforting. What would it feel like if San Lang were to venture lower, down his back and sides, what if he untied the worn-out silk and let his fingers trace the line of the shackle hidden beneath it, what if—

    Xie Lian takes a deep breath and thinks of the Ethics Sutra.

    ***
    Life goes on as Xie Lian settles in Ghost City. For the first time in centuries, he's content. For the first time in centuries, the future is hopeful.
    (Then why is he feeling so empty?)

    Summary

    “I’m back, gege,” Hua Cheng says as if it was somehow unclear before. Xie Lian has got half the mind to kiss him again just to make sure he’s not hallucinating, but he just smiles instead and takes his hand.

    “Welcome back,” he murmurs; softly, quietly, as if anything louder would shatter the moment and Hua Cheng with it. “Let’s go in?”

    They do; hand in hand, Hua Cheng right behind him. Xie Lian feels his presence like it’s physical. He wants it to be. He wants those lips back on his and those hands back on his waist.

     

    ***
    One year after the fall of Jun Wu, Hua Cheng returns. Xie Lian welcomes him back with open arms and an unwavering conviction that whatever the future holds, from this day on they'll face it together.
