    Summary

    Xiao’s cheeks heat up instantly. “I was under the impression that one should give flowers to those they’re in good standing with during the festival,” he haltingly says, refusing to back down from his embarrassment. He averts his gaze to the stone platform beneath them, slowly drawing the flower back to his chest. “If I’m mistaken, then—”

    “No, no!” Venti scrambles to say, waving his hands around frantically. His flailing arms startle Xiao into looking up, his eyes widening at how his own blush is reflected on Venti’s cheeks too.

    “I…” Venti trails off, staring at the cecilia with an odd kind of wetness in his eyes.

    Celestia, Xiao isn’t the best equipped to handle such outward displays of emotion; he can barely handle his own thoughts even on a good day. Be that as it may, Xiao vows to himself that he will not run away from this conversation, from Venti. Not anymore.

    Xiao takes a subtle breath, steeling himself, then prompts, “Yes?”

    Summary

    He can’t decide on what he should compare Childe's scars to, but that doesn’t stop him from finding their intricate pattern... how should he put it...

    Worth appreciating.

    Or, the one where Zhongli learns about Childe's scars and everything goes downhill from there (it's actually uphill, but he doesn't know that just yet).

    Summary

    “So guess what I did next?”

    Ekaterina contemplated not answering, but Harbinger Tartaglia was just… grinning and waiting. It’s honestly rather creepy the longer time passed.

    In the end, she gave a long suffering sigh that seems lost on him, “You bought him the Erhu—“

    “I bought him the antique, cor lapis based Erhu,”

    -

    When she first left her homeland for the unknown nation of Liyue, Ekaterina was ready to be many things: To be a soldier, to fell Tsaritsa’s enemies in her name, to bring glory to Snezhnaya and her leader.

    Being a receptionist in a cozy bank wasn’t so bad in comparison, but she absolutely can do without the front row seat to Harbinger Tartaglia’s (expensive) love life.

    Summary

    A lump formed in Childe’s throat. He had wanted to skip out of Liyue, trek back to Snezhnaya and deal with whatever complicated feelings had developed when he could think with the proper head. For all his efforts and drowning his feelings and urges with the same intensity he had tried to drown Liyue Harbor, the moment his eyes landed on glowing Cor Lapis, it was a lost battle.
