    Summary

    Shang Qinghua has been harbouring a crush on his ex-roommate and current boss, Mobei-Jun, for the past eight years. He has tried every method in the book short of standing in front of Mobei-Jun snark naked with a banner that says “Would you like to fuck?”, but Mobei-Jun remains oblivious to his very homosexual feelings. Having had enough of an unrequited love, Shang Qinghua decides to give up on his CEO and revive his lacklustre acting career instead. But why does it seem that the more Shang Qinghua tries to distance himself from Mobei-Jun, the clingier that man becomes!?
     
    Mobei-Jun aren’t you the CEO of a talent agency!? Why are you appearing on the set of every show I’m on!? Why are you rejecting every screenplay with kissing scenes in them!? What are you posting on your Weibo!?
     
    In short:

    Entertainment Industry AU where Mobei-Jun is an acclaimed actor and CEO of a talent management company, and Shang Qinghua is a C-tier actor too busy trying to seduce said CEO to properly build his career.

    Summary

    With an almost trance-like detachment, Wei Wuxian touched his own neck, his fingers skimming over the fresh mark. The bite wound had stopped bleeding, although he had no doubts it would open again if agitated.

    Bonded.

    He was bonded for life.

    "Shit," he whispered. He looked over at the sleeping form of Lan Wangji—the Second Prince of Gusu and, until his brother was found, the sole heir to the throne. "Oh, shit. Lan Qiren is going to kill me."

    ----------

    Lan Wangji goes into a fevered rut and accidentally bonds with Wei Wuxian. When they next meet, he remembers none of it, and Wei Wuxian is determined to keep the bond a secret—even when he's sent to the Cloud Recesses to be a consort in Lan Wangji's harem.

    (tl;dr concubine!wwx is already married to emperor!lwj, who has no idea. drama ensues.)

    Summary

    Squinting down at the hiding child, Shang Hua begins to hear the distant shouting of men. At the noise, the child below lets out a soft keening whimper, endeavoring to shove themselves further into the shadows of the barn. 

    The indistinct murmur of voices clarify into vicious laughter, calls of “That beast!” “Flush him out!” “We’ll teach him a lesson he’ll never forget!” fill the farmstead and the child below chokes back a sob.

    Shang Hua swings himself down out of the loft before his brain fully processes the situation. The child’s blue eyes widen with fear but Shang Hua holds a finger to his lips and waves for the kid to come closer “Come on,” he hisses, very aware of the rising voices of the men outside. ‘” I can boost you up to the loft and pull up the ladder.”

    Shang Hua's plan to escape his own An-Ding plotline results in the interruption of his favorite Demon Lord's backstory. Can he really just leave the young Mobei-Jun to suffer?

    Summary

    Shang Qinghua would be the first to admit that his memory was faulty. Always had been. His head was a place for numbers and words, not memories. But people didn't just forget getting engaged, did they? Especially if the person they happened to be engaged to was one of the most powerful men in the country--in this case, Mobei Jun.

    He could feel a headache coming on already.
