    Summary

    Lan Xichen sat still in shock. He had thought works and responsibilities kept Lan Wangji away from being with him in his darkest time. Never in his wildest imaginatiuon that Lan Wangji had decided to be away *with* Wei Wuxian; and away *from* him, his own grieving brother. Lan Xichen was grieving in his seclusion and Lan Wangji had chosen to elope with Wei Wuxian rather than supporting him.

    Like Lan Xichen had been with Lan Wangji *all his life*.

    -Oh-

    Was that how much he worth in his younger brother's eyes?

    Lan Xichen had spent his whole life raising Lan Wangji and his brother couldn't spare even the briefest time for him.

    Summary

    Venti remembers the man in the alleyway, lit almost ablaze in the lamplight. The gold in his eyes. The meteor orbiting his shoulders. His hands had been as steady as the earth, and when he held Venti, he had called him—

    —a name he hadn’t heard in a long, long time.

    After hearing news of Morax’s death, Venti travels to Liyue to honor a tradition that the Original Seven had long held: each time one of them passed on, those that remained would gather to drink a toast and say their final goodbyes.

    He figures Morax deserves this, at the least, even if it’s a party of one. He didn’t think it would be so hard to do it alone.

    Drunk, lonely, and despairing, Venti takes to wandering the streets of Liyue and stumbles upon a well-dressed stranger by the name of Zhongli, who reminds him far too much of what he’s just lost.

    Summary

    Taking a breath and slowly letting it out, he says, “It’s dangerous to be in a place like this when your Heat is coming on.”
    “It’s not coming. Not really. Just came here to concentrate better, then I’ll be right back with the others. I'll-I'll have it taken care of soon.”
    Morax already suspected for awhile what Barbatos has been doing. This just confirmed it.
    With a sigh, he says not unkindly, “It’s also dangerous to forcibly suppress your Heats so many times. It's now effecting your scent from the strain. When was the last time you allowed yourself to have a proper Heat?”
    Barbatos grimaces at his words.

    -To help each other get through the war easier, the God of Contracts and God of Freedom come to an agreement-

    Summary

    “Okay, you’re going to have to take a few steps back,” Venti says and immediately, the woman shifts her right leg backwards, foot in the air, and the bard quickly amends, “Oh! Not literally, haha. I just meant—” He pauses. What did he mean? “Dumb question, but who is Venti?”

    The look that is exchanged between the two strangers says more than words could. Venti’s gut drops, his stomach twisting. A cold sweat forms on the back of his neck.

    “Lord Barbatos,” the woman begins again, more hesitantly, “You showed up here late last night. You were speaking nonsense and had a terrible wound on your head. It has since healed. However…” She trails off.

    The man is the one to continue on her behalf, “Where did you go after menacing my tavern?”

    in which venti suffers from a temporary bout of amnesia, stays with diluc, and is confronted with the one thing he's avoided for centuries. or, in other words, zhongli and venti have a misunderstanding and finally talk about it. all of it.
