    Summary

    Where Beidou finds Ningguang unnervingly beautiful, and can’t help but adore her every curve, shape, colour and scent.

    “You’re in the gold of the sun. You’re in the white of the clouds. You’re in the smell of citrus and soap, in the glimmer of mora, in the deepest crevices of my mind, and amongst the white and gold, it’s you. You’re everywhere, Ning.”

    Summary

    Ironically, in these last moments, Beidou doesn’t think of her crew, or Kazuha, or any of her friends. She thinks only of Ningguang, of those wine-red eyes filled with grief when the news reaches Liyue Harbour, when the Crux Fleet docks without its beloved captain — without her love.

    I promised her— 

    The Raiden Shogun turns, clasping the two Visions firmly in her hand, and walks away.
    ----
    OR: when Beidou loses her ambition to the Vision Hunt Decree, Ningguang is there to show her what she once loved and lost.

    Summary

    “Laopo.” Ningguang sputters, and Beidou grins. “What, do you not like me calling you that, laopo?”

    “We sound old,” Ningguang says. “Only old people say that.”

    “Mm, but I like it,” says Beidou. There’s a teasing smile on her face, and she leans forward, poking Ningguang’s cheek. Ningguang reddens. She’s drunk on the way that Ningguang regards her. Is this what it’s like to be married? she wonders. “Laopo.”

    Or: on Ningguang’s wedding night, Beidou finds her drunk on her apartment doorstep. Like a fool, she proposes to her.

    Summary

    “No, no.” She shook her head. “I mean, yes, there is a room available.” Verr shifted uncomfortably behind the desk, eyes scanning the book over and over again.

    “What’s the problem, then, dear?”

    Verr sighed.

    Summary

    “Furong?” Ningguang raises an eyebrow. She recognised the name from somewhere but she couldn’t quite put her finger on it.
    “Yeah,” Yue drawls out, “Sometimes she goes into her cabin in a hurry and then we can hear her saying captain’s name over and over and over again and when she comes back out after a while, she’s always a bit nervous and red. Uncle Liushi says to ignore it and that it’s a grown-up thing so I’ve just learnt to not really care about it.”
    Ningguang nods and swallows, “Right yes, I do believe it’s a grown-up thing.”
