    Summary

    Lumine and Paimon get a special request letter.

    The reward:
    >400,000 Mora
    >100 Geo Sigils
    >5 Intertwined Fates
    >10 Hero's Wit

    Requested Items:
    > 2 photographs of Childe Tartaglia

    Lumine's palm meets her face. She looks at the hooded statue of the Geo Archon behind her, and burying her face into her palms, screams internally.

     

    Also features Aside from Lumine's suffering: Former Archon Bonding, Liyuen folks looking out for Zhongli in their own way, characters bonding (in general), some side quests, Footnotes (AKA the dump for insights/explanations/shorts that should add spice to the main work), Zhongli and Childe food towards the end, and lots of SHENANIGENS and Fluff.

    (Note: Additional omakes will/are uploaded separately and are compiled under a series. I guess this ride isn't over just yet)

    Summary

    There's a quaint little coffee shop that catches Childe's eye as soon as soon as he arrives into town. The man that works inside is more exhilarating than any drink Childe has ever tasted.

    Summary

    "Welcome to a new user experience! You have triggered this interface with the keywords, ‘Stupid game! Stupid devs! I want my f*****g money back!’ You are now bound to the character Tartaglia, the Eleventh Harbinger of the Fatui, codename: Childe! We hope you have an enjoyable user experience and we welcome you once again to Genshin Impact 2.0!”

    Those are some of the first words Ajax, starving college student extraordinaire, has the misfortune of hearing upon waking up in a brave new world from what he's fairly sure is a very, very fatal accident involving water and a shit ton of electricity.

    Okay, so he's not dead. That's good. But what's this about him being stuck playing the character Tartaglia? Tartaglia, as in the shitty, one-dimensional, cartoonish villain who met his untimely, gruesome death in the first act of the original game?

    Fuck that noise. Like hell Ajax is going to share that fate.

    And so begins one man's journey to unfuck himself.

    Summary

    It’s been two months since the storm, and Childe hasn’t seen Zhongli not even once, not since that fateful meeting with the Signora where the truth is finally unveiled.

    And what a fun little kick to the gut that is, the realization that not only had he been played by all sides, but he's also being tossed aside like trash now that his use had run its course.

    It’s not that Childe doesn’t get it. He’s a Harbinger. He knows first-hand what it means to do his duty, to put the mission first and his personal feelings far, far away, preferably locked up in a box, where it wouldn’t interfere with his job. He knows what it’s like working with vipers, to scheme and plot and lie in wait for the opportune moment to stab his opponent in the back.

    But this time, this time Childe can’t help but feel a little (a lot) gutted.

    Stupid. He’s gotten himself stupidly attached.

    A story about Childe trying to move on after the events of 1.1 Update, but some of his actions have consequences, and those consequences have followed him back to Snezhnaya.
