    Summary

    It was only after Bennett turned the corridor when he noticed that something was wrong. Those were ruins. Ancient ones at that. And so they should be protected by some machines…

    Suddenly he heard a rustle in the bushes. He jumped, his head whipping to look in that direction. He released a breath when he noticed a lizard just shuffling through the leaves. It’s just my imagination, he thought to himself. Just my imagination.

    But then he heard an all too familiar grunt.

    He quickly turned around and saw a Ruin Hunter floating just behind him.

    Or. Bennett goes on his first trip to Liyue, but his bad luck doesn't want to leave him. Fortunately, he stumbles upon two strangers who are willing to make his day a little bit better.

    Summary

    “What are you doing in Mondstadt?”

    “You didn’t show up this week!” Childe says. “Aether brought Hu Tao instead. She really handed it to me, but it just wasn’t the same.”

    “You…” Diluc stops. “You came all the way to Mondstadt just because I didn’t show up?”

    Oh?

    -

    Kaeya discovers Diluc has a crush and, despite not being on the best of terms with his estranged brother, takes it upon himself to be the ultimate wingman.

    Summary

    The final contract of Liyue. That’s what Rex Lapis had called it.

    An agreement to test his people, to see how they would be able to stand on their own and to allow them to move on from the age of gods and monsters into the dawning age of man. Rex Lapis knew they would be challenged in ways they had never been before, but despite appearances, he would be there to catch them if they fell.

    However, there were things he hadn’t accounted for despite all his careful planning. He had known that the Tsaritsa’s Fatui were sent to cause chaos - that Childe was a Harbinger and therefore would be at the epicentre - but he hadn’t expected this.

    As his ancient foe rose from the depths of the Guyun Stone Forest, the Archon weighed the final contract of Liyue against the first and made his decision.

    Summary

    “Hmmm, who knows?” Venti kicks the limp arm of the ruin guard and winces. “Either way, these things suck. I came out here to check on things, since Lumine swung by Angel’s Share yesterday to complain about how many ruin hunter commissions she’s getting these days, then tacitly directed me towards the location of one. Aiya, I should have thought it through before I told her I’d do it! They’re so scary!!”

    “...They are?” Xiao’s lips quirk up at Venti’s exaggerated dramatics. He’s really… he really missed talking to Venti. “So even the great Lord Barbatos gets scared sometimes.”

    Four things Venti is scared of, and one thing Xiao fears.

    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.
