    Summary

    The boy slowly wobbled up into a crouch, one knee on the ground. Tobirama stayed down, almost in seiza, hands visible and still on his knees.

    "Who are you? I don't know you. Are -- are you a Senju? Really? And it's night, why is it night?! Why is -- why do you have his corpse?!"

    (...)

    He wasn't done. He could feel the drain on his chakra reserves and he was going to be cutting it close, so. Feelings later. Happiness later. Squeezing his brother in his arms and breathing in his scent could -- it could wait.

    It could.

    Tobirama had been asked questions.

    "I created fake corpses to swap with the two of you. It's night because the comet I'm anchoring this seal to is passing by at night this time around. And I'm." His breath hitched, just a little. Months of feverish calculations, planning, plotting, setbacks and roadblocks, knowing the chance might never come again, knowing he had a time limit, a very narrow window and if he failed that was it.

    "I'm Tobirama. Your brother. It's been twelve years. Do I... Do I not look like me any longer?"

    Summary

    Shang Qinghua goes to take a self-indulgent peek at his baby protagonist son and gets a kick to the shrivelled heart for his troubles. He gave up on changing the story years ago! Yet he finds himself helping his protagonist son's adoptive mother anyway. Just this one change won't matter too much, right?

    One little change leads to more. Shang Qinghua never meant to care, but he becomes invested in making sure that his new family survives the looming plot. With the changes to the world cascading around him, with his position as a traitor pulling him between his sect and a certain ice demon, and with the protagonist growing up so quickly, how is one displaced author meant to ensure that everything turns out alright?

    A Pre-Canon to Canon Divergence story.

    Summary

    So: love.

    Ye Baiyi fell into it accidentally and with much reluctance, truly the most inconvenient thing to have happened to him in this life. He is a fighter and a bit of a brute, really; his only goal to duel his way to the top of jianghu and be done with it for good.

    Who would want to be saddled with feelings for an idiot like Ghost Hand Rong Changqing?

    And yet.

    -

    In which the future Madam Rong engages in negotiation.

    Summary

    They’re the night customers, the night-dwellers, and Zhao Yunlan pays no mind to their oddities, just follows their direction when they ask for him leave their burgers raw, or not put salt in because it 'burns'; accepts the odd things that they give him along with their tips – like old coins from an age past that give him unprecedented good luck for a week, or sheaves of dry leaves that turn into winning lottery tickets overnight – and when they ask for him to give his name, with too many teeth in their perfect mouths, he winks and changes the subject.
