    Summary

    “You performed this song once before. In front of the school, for a talent show.”

    “Oh, yeah, that’s right! I wrote the song for the show, actually, I just wanted to show off.” Venti told him, giving him a gentle nudge. “I didn’t know you were such a fan, did you like this song?”

    He tried not to let too much pride go to his head when Xiao nodded. He took a moment to inspect him, an eyebrow raising. “Do you know how to play the piano?”

    Xiao glanced at him, then looked back down again. “I tried learning once, but I only know how to play the flute.”

    “It’s never too late to learn.”

    Summary

    Xiao hasn’t eaten a dream in two millennia. Yaksha have no need to devour dreams. If it were anyone else, Xiao would let him suffer. But he had to find Barbatos. He had to dream powerfully enough to sour the world around him. And he had to save Xiao’s life.

    Xiao leans in closer. He does not dwell in gifts or in favor. Everything has a price.

    The life he lives now, he thinks, is worth the taste of this nightmare.

    Summary

    “Because it’s my second favorite place in the world. Stunning, isn’t it?”

    It is. And yet, it still pales in comparison to the apple of his eye. Everything from Liyue, to Mondstadt, to the ends of Teyvat are nothing to the beauty of the god right in front of him. Oceans could never be bluer than the tips of his braids, grass could never be greener than the palette of his clothes, flowers could never be prettier than the cecilia stitched onto his hat.

    Alatus thinks Barbatos may be mistaken. He says that this cliff is the only place where it feels as though one could pluck the stars straight from the sky, the only place that reaches high enough to the heavens to grasp at the ethereal. But when Barbatos is so close just like this, it feels as though Alatus could pluck the twinkle of stars straight from the azure skies of his eyes, like he could simply reach out and run his tentative touch along the epitome of divine grace.

    Or: The five times Xiao's outstretched fingers chase the winds and the one time they don't have to.

    Summary

    “Get nightmares often, huh?”

    Xiao looks at him, startled. It takes a moment before something like sullen understanding crosses his face. It’s resigned in a way Venti never is. “Sorry. You should get earplugs. I can’t control it.”

    Venti is no good with sadness. It sits in him like a dead weight. He does whatever he can to push it out. "I don’t think those will really help,” Venti says with a laugh.

    “The roommate swap is next week. I wouldn’t hold it against you if you left. My roommate last year did the same thing.”

    Oh, shit.

    Now he can’t leave.
