    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

    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.

    Summary

    “That’s fine,” Lan Xichen assured calmly, and relaxed his shoulders as Wangji didn’t call him out on the obvious lie. There was nothing to be worried about, after all— when Wangji was present, the entirety of Wei Wuxian’s attention was focused on his husband, as it should be.

    Time passed in silence until the sound of steps moving just too slow to be considered a run came to them, and Wei Wuxian opened the door with a wild grin on his face, snow blowing in around him.

    He was magnificent, cheeks cherry red from the cold and hair blown wild by the wind, and Lan Xichen’s breath caught in his throat at the sight.
