    Summary

    For such a dangerous job, being the emperor of Yuehua is remarkably thankless, full of tedious duties and without nearly enough staff. Which is why Yibo is totally consumed by yet another request for delegate seating changes as Xiao Zhan slits open the small, flat package from the Rigel system and sends iridescent pink powder spilling all over himself.

    “What—?” Xiao Zhan says, before his face crumples in the rictus of a sneeze.

    Summary

    Xiao Zhan’s dark eyes are so expressive, and Yibo has seen a thousand emotions in them, usually just part of a performance. Or maybe not; sometimes on set after a crying scene he’s seen how hard it hits Xiao Zhan, red eyes and shaking shoulders, like he made it so real he even convinced himself.

    This is real, or it isn’t; Yibo’s never known, or he’s tried never to know. Xiao Zhan can make his eyes say whatever he wants, but he’s been looking at Yibo like this the whole time, like he means it.

    Summary

    The phone screen goes black, and he lies next to Yibo, feeling like he’s been turned inside out. As far as porn goes, it was barely even explicit, but the intimacy of the scene and knowing it’s something Yibo likes enough to watch over and over have left him stunned, not sure what to do next.

    At long last, Xiao Zhan licks his lips. “That’s — what you want?”

    It was so simple, but he can tell Yibo’s embarrassed as he clears his throat and mutters, “yeah.”

    Summary

    “You’re just a really inspiring lecturer, Xiao-jiaoshou,” Yibo says, and he sees it again, the way Xiao Zhan reacts when he calls him professor. “You’re really strict on us, but the way you talk when you’re in front of the classroom....” He trails off, smiling. “And besides,” he adds, taking advantage of his position as Xiao Zhan’s actual, real-life boyfriend, “your ass looks amazing in that suit.”

    Xiao Zhan slams the paper down. “My office,” he says, and fuck, fuck, his voice is so stern it sends hot shivers all through Yibo. “We’ll talk in there. About your grades,” he says, with a withering up-and-down glance at Yibo that makes his heart race.

    Summary

    Before he’s even finished reading, Xiao Zhan knows this is the script, the one that could alter the course of his career. Not like Chen Qing Ling changed his life six years ago, catapulting him from a minor idol to a household name, or the way his more serious roles have slowly taken him to the upper echelons of dramatic actors. This is a love story, daring and bold, groundbreaking and unforgettable, if only he’s brave enough to do it.

    So of course, eventually, they bring up the idea of casting Yibo as his lover.

     

    In the summer of 2025, Xiao Zhan and Yibo reunite as the leads in a gay indie film, bringing their complicated offscreen history with them—and secret hopes of making things right.
